High Lives And Low Minds!

She Loved The Lord
BUT
She Wanted The World!
She Thrived On Its Adulation!
She Loved The Applause
AND
The Access To Her Idols
Those Gods
Who Promised Her
That They Could Make Her Into The Perfect Image!

Poor Thing!
She Can't See The Fraud! 

Hear Her Speak!
See Her Eyes Leak!
She Was Seeing Her Gods In Their Element!
They Promised Her The Moon
IF
She Would Let Them Her Groom
To Become As They
Making Others Swoon!

BUT ...

She Was Not Alone!
Others Had Access To The Zone
That Place Of The Human Food Fest
Where
Lust, Hate, Greed
Envy, Sex
Revenge, Vanity
Encourage Self In Selfishness
To Channel Other Spirits
To Partake Confusion
To Sell Their Souls To The Very Devil
To Possess The High
Bright
Life-Changed-Forever Lie!
She Wanted To Live
To Live 
To Live The Bewitching Illusion!

Her Mentors
Those Mentors
Were Weapons In The Trade
Willing To Sell What Can't Be Bought
To Purchase That
For Which Christ Jesus
Had
- With His Own Blood -
Already Paid!

They Cared Not For Her Soul! 
Their Interest Was In The Gold
That Her Goal Of Winning
Would For Them
Unfold!

Alas ...

Alas
The Poor Dear Put Her Very Soul 
In Their Despoiling Hands
AND
As To Be Expected
She Gained The Gold
Fulfilling Her Goal
BUT
Lost Hold Of The Hand
The Marred Hand
Of The Holy Son Of Man
The Son Of The Eternal God
Who, For Her Redemption
Became, Just Like Her ...
Human!

BUT ...

The Difference!
The Difference Was
That He Was Tempted
BUT
He Sinned Not
So As To Give Unto Us Fallen
A Road Map
To Reach The Heavenly Land
Where Peace
AND
Rest
- The Blessings Called Best -
Are Eternal
If We Will Repent Of Wrongdoing
AND
All Our Sin
Readily Confess!

So Tell Me What Happened To Her!

Selfishness Became Her Butter!
Narcissism Was Bread
AND
They Were Sweet In Her Mouth
BUT
One Day
- Having Finally Reached Her Belly -
They Became Bitter Bitter
AND
Having Had It All
AND, STILL
Having Nothing At All
Her Bitter Belly Showed Her That
Having Run
She Had Not Won
Anything Of Any Value
AND
Tears Of Regret
Started
Her Cheeks Running Down
Down Into Her Mouth - BITTER!
Down Her Chin
Heating
Burning
Eating!

Her Heart Was Breaking
AND, THEN
She Remembered
Her Old Grand Ma's Words
From The Old Bible
Oh, The Words!
Those Words ...

What Shall It Profit A Man
If He Should Gain The Whole World
And Lose
His. Own. Soul ...?!

She Had To Remake Herself
Every Single Day
To Stay Relevant!
She Needed A Regular Fix
Of 15 Minutes Of Fame
To Maintain The Lifestyle
That For Her
- Now -
Was No Gain!

Could She Do It?!

Do What?

Could She From The Feint Applause
Walk Away!
Could She Return To The Quiet Life
Remembering The Lord
Where Peace Was Rest
Love Was Hope
Help Was Healing
AND
She
- With Normal Life -
In Her Jesus
Could Cope?!

Did She?!

At Her Wit's End
I Heard Her One Day
Praying
To The Father
For Jesus To Take Her
From That Life
Far Away
For
In That Life
There Was Never Living Water
But There Was Always Tainted Wine!

She Told The Lord
That She Needed Fresh Air
A Clean Diet
A Listening Ear
A Shoulder On Which To Lean
And A Cleansing!
Oh, How She Wanted To Be Made Clean
And That She Desired A New Start
Where Faith In God
Was Not The Thing Considered Unclean!

It Was Not Easy
BUT
Believing
That With God
All Things Are Possible
AND
Having Nothing To Lose
BUT
God's Eternal Life To Gain
She Trusted The Father
AND
Not Looking Back
She Looked Up
AND
Found Her Redemption
That Is Found Only In Jesus Christ
AND
Singing Glory!
Hallelujah!
She Started Walking
Straight
On The Narrow Way!

She Was Headed Toward
The King Of Life
AND
Glory
Because Of Grace
AND
She Blessed God
For Her Deliverance
AND
She Cursed The Fraud!

She Said:

I Lived Through My Eyes!
I Lived For My Belly!
I Loved To Hear My Ears Ringing
With All The Adulation
That The World
To Me Was Giving
But It Was A Lie
That Made Me Cry
And Now I Am Telling 
All Who Will Listen
Please,
Do Not For The Things Of This Dying World
Sigh In Your Heart
And With Your Voice Cry!

A Sawdust Cake Is Still Made Of Wood
Even If It Is Covered In Royal Icing
And
A Glass Of Champagne Saturated With Ammonia
Is Still Wee Wee
Even If Your Flutes
Have Silver Lining!

Just Because Things Are Fashionable
It Does Not Make Them
Good
Or
Even Right
So, Please
Stick To The Truth
Even If With The World
You Must Fight
For
The Truth Is The Way
And The Way Contains Light
And Hell Cannot Breach Truth
For Truth Is The Light Of Life!

Hear, Hear!


Don't Sell Your Soul
For
Breakable Baubles
From
Satan The King Fraud!
Think Straight!
Live Right
And
Praise And Thank God!
