Eagles’s flight – Lent 2017 – Thread 2 Compass Point – New Creation

Lent 2017

This lent instead of giving something up, I’ll try to focus on my various forms of meditation and the path that God’s been taking me on these last few years.  There are currently 3 threads, each one a bit deeper than the last. These are musings from my path. You may find bits and pieces that ring true in your walk. And for those bits and pieces, I give thanks.

Lenten Threads
1. House of the Lord Meditations
2. Compass Thread – My Room with 12 doors
3. The Dark Corners

Compass Thread – My Room with 12 doors
Compass Point 1 – New Creation

In a newly postulated theory of time, new Now’s are created just as new space is created causing the expansion of our universe and the expansion of time. So new time is created moving always forward with a newly created Now. Some of these new Now’s become special to us, a step forward in our growth or an event which shapes our vision and understanding of the world, who we are and our place with others and with God.  Such Nows are to be remembered and celebrated as stepping stones on our way being carried along in the River of Life, growing up and more deeply into God’s Love for us.

Lent
new creation
the eternal Now
light
life
a beginning
always starts
Now

The eternal
reaches in
becomes Now
and the Word creates
and makes all things

The Word
which is God
made all things

The Word
which is God
dwelt among us

New made
each now
presents
new hope
become present reality
and recedes
becomes past
a memory foundation
for further building

and some Nows
become a persistent New
a corner turned
our reality has changed
grown
ushered in a new way of thinking
a new way of walking
new character within
which sees the world
through new eyes
more deeply

1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. John 1:1-5 (NKJV)

About Clark W Johnson

I am a poet, interested in using poetry to explore my interactions with the spiritual. I find poetry captures tension, paradox and flow well enough so I can hold experiences at arms length and reflect on them from multiple vantage points. As I walk deeper with my God, I'm finding such a record invaluable for myself, and I find that pieces and parts touch others as well. I love and long for more points of contact along those lines.
