but now

started 2009 with a bang
let’s stage a surprise potluck4taipan clang
pulled it off with help of friends and family
to jumpstart our year with glee

with upcoming obama inaugural address
a pbcc 2009 inaugural sermon bell rang, a dent in ramrom impress
in particular was how bernard  “but now” biblical verses together press
how the jews were once God’s chosen people, but now via Christ’s redemption
gentiles once excluded are but now under His inclusion

an extrapolated ramrom conjecture
things of past shaped the “but now” present which will in turn shape the future
yes, dream of the future taught by the past
but now, do something that matters for time may not last
for future to blast

strains of seals and croft
in my mind aloft
“so – i wanna laugh while the laughin’ is easy
i wanna cry when it makes it worthwhile
we may never pass this way again….”
mingled with yoko ono strain
“yesterday may haunt us forever
today may pass in fear
tomorrow may never come”

end times stanza
what’s it with gaza?
satyam ceo making 1 billion dollar cash entry
cfo contemplating suicide, what other cookies and rookies in the pantry
it’s all fake
your confidence to shake
the world is doomed
but now, with price paid on the cross, eternal hope for all has bloomed

neapolitan writer-engineer luciano de crescenzo’s quote to ring
“we are each of us angels with only one wing,
and we can only fly by embracing one another”  ding ding ding

so let sea of humanity reach out and embrace each other
instead of violence, greed, misunderstandings and lies to smother
for tomorrow may never come for all we know
but now, all of us have access to the Father through Christ by one Spirit, we can love sow

ephesians 2:12-13
remember that at that time u were separate from Christ, excluded from citizenship in israel
and foreigners to the covenants of the promise, without hope and without God in the world.
but now in Christ Jesus u who once were far away have been brought near by the blood of Christ.

colossians 1:21-22
once u were alienated from God and were enemies in your minds because of your evil behavior
but now He has reconciled you by Christ’s physical body through death to present u holy in His sight,
without blemish and free from accusation

1 peter 2:10
once u were not a people, but now u are the people of God;
once u had not received mercy, but now u have received mercy.

1 peter 2:15-17 give us cornerstone to anchor upon for the but-now-today
or it is God’s will that by doing good u should silence the ignorant talk of foolish men.
live as free men, but do not use your freedom as a cover-up for evil;
live as servants of God.
show proper respect to everyone:
love the brotherhood of believers,
fear God….

(but) now, i found, that the world is round
and of course it rains everyday.

living tomorrow,
where in the world will i be, tomorrow?
how far out am i able to see?
or am i needed here?

if  i remember all of the things i have done,
i’d remember all of the times i’ve gone wrong.
why do they keep me here?
