Aspiration

 

If we understood what lay beyond death's door

That it was abundant life, not less but more

Paradise awaits, thrilling to the core

If we understood

 

If we really knew what life was all about

We would stand at heaven's door and we would loudly shout

Not, let me in, but Father let me out

If we really knew

 

If we could really see the body that we'd get

Sickness, pain and death would no more be a threat

We'd enter heaven's rest, free from every debt

If we could only see

 

If we could only hear the Saviour's urgent call

To be kind, not to some but, show love to all

Then enter the eternal gate and at his feet we'd fall

If we could only hear

 

If we could really feel the arms that us enfold

Eternally secure within the hands that hold

We'd meet the enemies of grace with hearts so bold

If we could really feel

 

If we could live selflessly in this place

Knowing a future Kingdom beckons through his grace

A life, a world, better in every case

If we could only live

 

Let’s not grasp; we should follow the apostle’s aim

Doesn’t he say ‘to live is Christ and to die is gain’

Wishful thinking will end up all in vain

We must live in his train

Can be interpreted in many ways..."view of eternity" amongst others. Sometimes to get the "bigger picture" requires some adjustments.
In our spiritual walk there is an ongoing cleansing aside from the initial immersion...Paul referred to as a kind of healthy reverent "fear and trembling" in our approach to salvation/faith.
Jesus said: "You need only to wash your feet...", this was very significant and had a very deep meaning very impactful.
Whenever a visitor entered a home in those days it was a tradition to wash their feet before entering into a home, simply because most people wore sandals and the feet would be dusty and sandy.
Having been cleansed of sins our daily walk through this "fallen" world is an exercise in picking up worldy dust and debris to the point of clinging to us. 
But then again...you know all this i'm positive:) 
Made me think...and thinking can be a dangerous thing at times...
Thought about the word "aspiration" for some reason it really pulled at me and I tend to follow up on these little prompts they more often than not lead to unexpected finds and subconscious double entendres.



1.

a strong desire, longing, or aim; ambition:
intellectual aspirations.

2.
a goal or objective that is strongly desired:
The presidency has been his aspiration since boyhood.

3.
the act of aspirating or breathing in.

4.
Phonetics.
[list=def-sub-list]
[*]articulation accompanied by an audible puff of breath, as in the h -sound of how, or of when (hwen), or in the release of initial stops, as in the k -sound of key.
[*]the use of such a speech sound, or aspirate, in pronunciation.
[/list]

5.
Medicine/Medical.
[list=def-sub-list]
[*]the act of removing a fluid, as pus or serum, from a cavity of the body, by a hollow needle or trocar connected with a suction syringe.
[*]the act of inhaling fluid or a foreign body into the bronchi and lungs, often after vomiting
[/list]


Now the high-lighted definition here really strikes me because I have had such procedures done as well as by grace having survived many life threatening health issues and being cured of cancer.

It really resonates how one or more malignant/toxic obstacles must be removed from our walks albeit physical, mental or psychological before a deeper understanding of the spiritual can take place.

Made me "think" and I didn't want to going in...but i'm glad I did, thanks.

Also, it is refreshing to see the use of "we" prevalent in your offerings it is significant and very telling (requires a conscious effort, many of us take for granted when we become complacent and no longer make that concerted effort is usually when we begin to fall backwards)...means a lot!

Thanks Anthony,

Your little research project opened my eyes to more corridors of thought-'the subconscious double entendres'.

The One who gives breath-the breath of life-draws us with each breath to the consummation.

A trite mantra- The past is for learning the future for yearning
                       Let's learn to cope and yearn with hope
