"All for Today"
I wandered the streets naked hearing only the beats
of my heart overflowing with a sixth sense
of urgency; emergency; clergymen; demons;
Time had ceased.
My mind was creased.
Cursed with the truth, the lies twisted my hindsight;
the sight lit my foresight
and the now was one huge stooge
ready to fall.
It was a desperate call
and I knew not who to listen to or who to tell,
my apparently tortured loneliness was living hell.
I eventually landed in a psychiatric ward
where all my kin were studied as a backwards horde.
The call was still ringing in my ears but
I was stuck in tangents of a concentration camp.
The antics of my fellow prisoners of war
only proved to me I was in on the score
and was losing; missing in action with
only my (innocent of the facts) family to protect me.
That was a decade ago now and how I
came through is miraculous.
...yet that time is not written off,
it still haunts me to this day,
a reality I rarely speak of...
and that is all I will burden you with today.

They came to life and reigned with Christ a thousand years. 5 (The rest of the dead did not come to life until the thousand years were ended)

Since the moment we first came to Christ, there has been an updraft of the Holy Spirit, a constant drawing from God lifting us upward toward the fullness of His Presence. Lets surrender to this wind of God and allow Him to carry us into our holy future (our DESTINY).
The disciples did not just pray and sit around waiting for God to enter the "playing field" to convert the world on His own. They went out into the world so that the Holy Spirit might go into the World.
"The Lord worked with them." - Mark 16:20
God plants His purpose in our lives in the epicenter of our heart and it will fuel new exploits in our lives.
The first step to getting out of the box is to fellowship with the God of the breakthrough.The Holy Spirit will charge you with fresh vision and boldness.
