I found the Lord
And the Lord found Me
High on a hill
Overlooking the sea
Where stormy winds
Buffet the coast
I heard Him say
"I love You the most!"
"I love You the most
When You save the lost
And heal them all
Despite the cost
I love You the most
When You size up the view
And 'whistle in the wind'
The whole way through."

Shalom is what Life springs from.
Shalom is not the strength to endure a problem, rather it is the wisdom to solve it.
Shalom is answers, deliverance, power, forgiveness, warmth, compassion, control, counsel, and the multiplication of New Life upon all that was barren.
Which power is greater? The power to create, or the power to destroy?
The answer is ... the one that happens last.
God has the Last Word.
Underneath the mantle of life,
Whispers have begun,
O’re the fragrance of the petals,
That will grace the summer sun.
Sheila Willar - January 05, 2021
There is a Right of Passage,
Denied darkness and its crew,
They have no Seat of Honour,
In the Secret Place,
So when the leaves turn golden,
And the sages of old do too,
Remember that this season,
Is a time of starting over,
Sheila Willar - September 18, 2020
Where infinity runs true
In all directions
There is no epicentre
Except for the
Holy of Holy's of God.
It is where all the "Definitions"
It is the singular metric
That all of creation looks to
For its Identity.
It has no definitions
For most of what you know
Because most of what you know
Sheila Willar - December 14, 2020
Thy word is a lamp unto my feet, and a light unto my path.
Then spake Jesus again unto them, saying,
I am the light of the world: he that followeth Me shall not walk in darkness, but shall have the light of life.
Self-control is about what you run to, not what you run from.
Self-control is an act of reverence ...
like carrying a bowl of water through the desert, trying not to spill a drop of the life-giving essence.
Sheila Willar - March 09, 2021
Crystal snowflakes bristle,
With frost upon my face,
To celebrate the season,
And it's cool embrace.

Prosperity is a connection to the unseen wells of God.

Humans are increasingly aware of the probability that things will go wrong, so much so, that the earth has become a casino.

Psalm 112:7 KJV
He shall not be afraid of evil tidings: his heart is fixed, trusting in the Lord.
Eventually, Quantum Time will take us back to the beginning for a do-over.
Religion is afraid of the accountability revealed by scientific data.
Science is afraid that it might actually reveal God.
Sheila Willar - August 08, 2019
Jesus paid for every wrong ever committed, by every human ever created, in full, before they took their first breath.

Atheists reject harmful religious leaders.

Seers ... have a hard time seeing themselves.

Darwin did not discover that there was no God, instead, he discovered that there was evidence of darkness in a fallen world.

As the spotlight pans the stage,
God waits behind the curtain,
And when it's time to bow again,
This one thing is certain.
They will say "I did it myself!"
Though they never could,
God will say "I gave you my Son!"
While they knock on wood.
The sandals on the porch,
Wait for tiny barefoot toes,
The towels on the rail,
Dry with sun-kissed cotton clothes.
The sea-glass on the sills,
Sparkle blue-green in the sun,
The sea birds on the wind,
Beckon "Come!" to everyone.
The dreamers on the dunes,
Put their surf-boards by the door,
As they laugh and take a rest,
At their home down by the shore.
Sheila Willar - June 21, 2019
If I look for you,
And there’s no sign,
Then I feel like,
If I brag on you,
And you don’t show,
Then everyone else,
But then per chance,
With a simple glance,
And a casual,
You jump out at me,
And suddenly we,
Talk from dusk,
Sheila Willar - June 21, 2019
God is eminent.

Sheila Willar - March 01, 2019
God is imminent.
protruding over, impending, looming, unavoidable
God is immanent.
elemental, constitutional, intrinsic, ingrained
The word “hide” comes from the root “to love”.
Hiding was never meant to describe what we run from, but rather what we run to.
No one in heaven hides from the hate of their enemies.
Instead, they hide in the love of God.
Sheila Willar - February 14, 2019
People on the earth have a hard time believing that there is a heaven ... it seems too ideal.
People in heaven have a hard time believing that there is an earth ... it seems too broken.
Mutiny is a battleground for "sound".
It is all about whose voice is in control.
Mutiny is what our words are measured against.
Sheila Willar - June 1, 2019
Jesus said “Take a seat!”
But I said “Too much stress!”
Jesus said “Take a stand!”
But I said “Too much press!”
Jesus said “Clean it up!”
But I said “Too much mess!”
Jesus said “Don’t back down!
Refuse to be anything less!”
Sheila Willar - January 9, 2019
We are so fickle …
If I had a nickel,
For every time we changed our minds,
Only God can take off the blinds.
Sheila Willar - June 4, 2019
Shame is not the same as Sorry,
And sometimes we don’t know which,
One will drive you to look for answers,
And one will drive you in the ditch.
Horses in the night sky,
Wolves giving chase,
Comets are falling,
All over the place.
Hooves of steel,
Churn stars to dust,
And rows of teeth,
Turn shimmer to rust.
Maple syrup and pancakes,
Cucumbers and strawberry tea,
A healthy child,
A Spring that’s mild,
And a Summer spent with Thee.
SW - January 24, 2108
No one in politics wants to acknowledge that partisan politics is over.
January 24, 2018
Courage is better than a pious spirit,
And gold in the pocket is better than none,
Swearing is better than gossip,
But neither really gets the job done.
The stars are waiting for us to cross over,
But not if it is on the run,
The universe is praying for us,
To wake up and have some fun.
SW - January 24, 2018
Humans view a promise,
As a hope of things to come,
Whereas for God,
Is that which is already done.
SW - January 29, 2018
This race is not to the finish line,
Because we are already there,
This race is not to see who is first,
Because that is already clear.
This race does have a final test,
One that soothes the weak and stressed,
The question is "Have you been blessed,
Enough to enter Heaven’s Rest?"
February 6, 2018
What a witty man he was,
A rogue of his day,
Hitching one word to another,
In a mesmerizing way ...
There is a Mighty Roar upon its way,
It's already left Heaven's Gate,
And whether or not it is bad or good,
Depends upon how we wait.
Prayer fuelled by anguish,
Seeks omens and signs,
To rally the angels,
O’re demons and crimes,
But where is the peace,
To settle the dust?
Why do we risk,
To leave out the trust?
Jesus met a man one day,
Who didn’t believe in God,
Saying "Religion is a bunch of hypocrites,
Sycophants and frauds!"
And then he said, “I’m done with them!”
And Jesus said, “What are the odds”?
“Me too! I’m done with them!
What are the odds?"
April 4, 2018
Swiftly as not,
On common ground,
I stood between,
Where day and night,
Together as one,
Could count the stars,

Bumper to bumper,
Sky to ground,
The blood of Jesus,
To His covenant,
We are bound,
Safe and sound.
SW - April 4, 2018
The highest calling you will ever face, will be in the presence of people who want you to fail … and the calling will be to love them.
SW - December 4, 2018
The goal of those who crucified Jesus, was to try to force Him to let go of heaven.
Atheists only have an argument up until the point that they meet God in person.
On earth we put pies in the oven,
And check to see if they are done, But in heaven they put time in the oven,And check to see if we are One. SW - 2013
You said that You built a home for me,
Far beyond the blue,
But none can be as beautiful,
As the home I have in You.
SW - May 26, 2017
If you love me I stand in the door,
If you don't I stand all the more,I bid you rest while I keep watch,And you make up your mind for sure.
SW - June 24, 2005
I am a writer,
I am sure of it,
If only I could find a pen,
I’d tell a story,
Of failure and glory,
And we'd never be the same again.
SW - March 22, 2017
A beautiful star came to earth,
To brightly shine all around,
But jealously rose in the souls of men,
And they buried it underground.
The brilliant star continued to glow,
And warmed the earth above,
And soon a heavenly garden grew,
Up from a heart of love.
SW - March 01, 2017
The only benefit of finding fault in others, is that it reveals the hypocrisy in ourselves.
SW - Nissan 5, 5777
Fallen stars are not persuaded to do so,
Most are abused and fail,
And then their settings become loose enough,
To be swept away by the dragon’s tail.
SW - March 18, 2017
If you speak a word,
It will quiver,
And strike a heavenly chime,
And angels as quick as silver,
Will whisper in rhythm and rhyme.
SW - March 15, 2017
Jealousy is the death of kings,
And honour is the King of Love.
God is not waiting on the devil to end …
God is waiting on us to begin.
The devil may start the ball rolling,
But very often we end up pushing it ourselves.
Sometimes at night people are afraid,
That they’ve barely dodged a bullet,
But then in the morning they awake with You,
And find themselves running right to it.
SW - February 9, 2017
Put me together piece by piece,
And roll me down the hill,
Shall my strength accumulate?
Or shall I take a spill?
Whatever the case,
My parts are true,
In sleet or snow or rain,
For I will be my greatest when,
God puts me back together again.
Oh! To stroll a deserted beach,
With sand as soft as silk,
And climb the dunes above the sea,
O’re waves as white as milk,
Where wind and spray upon my face,
Rise on my skin like dew,
And I can turn and gaze upon,
Someone as great as You.
The problem isn't big business, or politics.
Nor is it religion or engineering.
The problem is that we pick up the same old broken baton, and run with it as fast as we can.
SW - February 17, 2017
The Manzanita shrub,
Bears seeds of metal,
They cannot be unlocked,
Without fire and kettle,
A hundred year blaze,
Leaves only a pebble,
And a Manzanita sprout,
In a race with a nettle.
When God's Light shines,
On my embryo soul,
That which is love,
Begins to glow.
But that which is hate,
Smoulders like coal,
Releasing its fate,
And taking its toll.
If what I seek is not by faith,
And I build myself a throne,
Then I shall sit upon a fake,
A man-made stumbling stone.
The inner clockwork of the moon,
Tracks seasons just for sport,
When sultry summer days go long,
The sparkling nights go short.
But then in winter when the sun,
Drifts quietly off to sleep,
The full moon stretches forth her wings,
And children count their sheep.
SW - January 13, 2017
The moon and the owl,
Have a lot in common,
They are famous for the night,
Their days are silent,
But in stealth they await,
Before launching themselves in flight.
SW - January 12, 2017
The moon and harvest are one accord,
Each tells the story of the other,
It was written down in ancient times,
That a friend gives His life for a brother.
Down in the thicket where the hedgehogs play,
Down where the foxes are held at bay,
Down where the spires are pressed like hay,
There rests a diamond I lost the other day.
It sparkles when the moon scatters the light,
It howls when the loon launches in flight,
It bristles when the squirrels hunt for a bite,
And it sings to me both day and night.
SW - December 16, 2016
Miss you Max!
He dwelled in the courts of heaven,
Where the simplest of thoughts were glad,
But when He shared them amidst the earth,
The people had thought He'd gone mad.
SW - November 20, 2016
Lift your feet and spin,
The Ark returns,
As God affirms,
Your victory once again.
Victory is God's,
And it cannot be buried,
Even if the battle's been lost,
It doggedly waits,
At heaven's gates,
Despite the hoary frost.
And rose hips on ice,
Quiver with silver gloss,
But deep within,
They stir again,
Their joy cannot be lost.
SW - December 16, 2016
What say you now oh wise one,
Since you've come down,
From the mountain top?
Is the sky as blue,
As you once knew,
When you were young,
And couldn't be stopped?
SW - November 18, 2016
Large flakes of snow,
Float to the ground,
Likes sheets of paper from a desk,
They seem to know,
Without a sound,
What God is saying next.
SW - November 21, 2016
If you were there the day He made them,
You'd see the trees and animals in awe,
Their eyes grown wide as He split aside,
Two beings from one without flaw.
If you think that they are not equal,
If you think that Heaven made a fraud,
If you look for weakness in gender,
Then you look for the devil ... not God.
SW - November 12, 2016
God created cis gender.
The devil created "masculine and feminine".
SW - November 03, 2017
Children are being asked if they want to be a “boy” or a “girl”. The question is meant to be compassionate and progressive, but instead, children are really being asked, “Which Gender Cage do you want to live in?”
SW - July 25, 2022
There is zero probability of failure in union with God.

Heaven does not recognize the legality of darkness in any of its forms.
SW - December 23, 2017
On what strange road have we travelled, in order to believe that darkness is greater than the Hand of God?

Life is a series of trains, and the one we are now on has come to a halt. The next train however, will barely slow down at the station and we will have to run to catch up and jump aboard.

Time is a ribbon that is tied around a bouquet of flowers.
Time is a circle, and soon the end will have caught up to the beginning.

There is a grain of sand for every star,
And for every star a voice,
For every voice a baby is born,
As sentinel angels rejoice.
SW - August 21, 2017
Late one evening in the dark of night,
A plague infested bug took flight,
It asked consent and then took a bight,
Of Jesus Christ who did not fight.
The bug flew the prize back to its nest,
To brag o’re the blood with all the rest,
But as it did ... Jesus healed the pest,
And from then on its bite was blessed.
SW - August 14, 2017
Bring Me a scribe and make it quick,
Bring Me a scribe with a writing stick,
Bring Me a scribe,
And I’ll tell them what to do,
And I'll write about you.
Some believe but don't know,
Know but don't trust,
Trust but don't love,
Love but don't like,
Like but don't hear,
Hear but don't heed,
Heed but don't care,
And care but don't believe.
I wonder how long we can sit here and think,From our perch on top of the dunes?Is it enough to mull and wink,In the lee of the castle ruins?
Hard is the day when streams of sand,Echo the bagpipe’s tunes,And mourners carry her final breath,A life over way too soon.
SW - June 5th, 2017
Dying will never be enough,
For a human to make amends,
Death is but a futile bluff,
To forge the freedom of friends.
Unless of course the blood is pure,
And the will of Jesus bends,
To pay the price of pardon itself,
And proclaim "The sentence ends!"
SW - June 13, 2017
In case you haven’t noticed,
I Am the one who died,
I paid the price so all My friends,
Could stay very much alive.
And then I rose so you could too,
So My blood could be yours,
And when you come a knocking,
I'll open wide the doors.
SW - April 11, 2017
The pressure is peeking,
The dams are squeaking,
The cracks are creaking,
There's not enough fingers,
To keep them from leaking,
And too many secrets,
To keep them from freaking.
The sky swooped down,
And carried me away,
Into its arms of blue,
At night we became,
A veil of stars,
And by day,
A blanket of dew.
SW - November 12, 2016
Swirl in the wind,
Run the back yard,
Like children again,
Reach to the sky,
In you own skin,
No one knows better,
Than the One within.
SW - Nov 11, 2016
God is not saying, “Be ready!”
because something is going to happen.
God is saying, “Be ready!”
because something has already happened.
We skate on frozen water,
We skate on frozen lakes,
We skate around each other,
For acrimonious sakes.
Pink is the sand in my hourglass,
Blue is my heart when it runs out,
But with love ... not luck,
The sand will get stuck,
And I'll be here when the angels shout.
I see what they write on the page,
I hear what they speak on the stage,
But then expire,
When they forget the source of their sage.
Forgery comes in many forms,
Sometimes disguised as light,
At first it sizzles,
But then it fizzles,
Without heavenly wings of flight.
SW - October 12, 2017
The Earth is so precious, that if God had to choose between humans or the Earth, I think God would choose the Earth.
SW - July 22, 2022
Old Man River draws from from high in the snow capped mountains,
And from a silver basin of wells that are a thousand miles wide.
When the river turns, we turn,
When the river runs fast, we run fast,
And when the river slows, we slow,
Until the delta and the shores of the ocean,
meet as One.
SW - November 17, 2017
Winter shadows upon the snow,
Are muted mauve and blue,
Autumn shadows upon the leaves,
Are a dusty golden hue.
Spring and Summer cast a shade,
Of green upon the view,
But when the earth cries out for help,
Only Your shadow will do.
SW - 20170717
We won't be judged,
Against earthly standards,
Against what others have done,
But we will be judged,
By the cloth we were cut from,
For failing to be all,
That we were meant to become.
SW - December 18, 2017
The earth is full of ruins,
How many before us have become undone?
Is this the Age of Wisdom?
Or is this another dry run?
For by Him were all things created,
that are in heaven,
and that are in earth,
visible and invisible,
whether they be thrones,
all things were created by Him,
and for Him:
And He is before all things,
and by Him all things consist.
God plucks kings from the grave,
And buries them in the sea,
God is not intimidated,
By men who make decrees.
SW - December 27, 2015
Don't you know?

All the words you say?

Everyone's heart is made of stone,
Be it a saint or a snake,
A gem's worth is in the Light,
Be it clear or opaque.

The stones that David chose for his slingshot, came from a brook, the same stones that were used to build idols. Goliath was undone by his own false gods.
Winter lay bare her silver bones,
A framework of life within,
While seed and sap sit round the fire,
And wait their turn once again.
SW - December 20, 2007
Do not bemoan your seed of faith,
Though little it may be,
For you can unlock a kingdom,
With a teeny-tiny key.

Mercy and truth are met together;
righteousness and peace have kissed each other.
A heavy cloud was held aloft,
And tortured until it burst,
But when it did,
The snow fell soft,
Though the devil had done his worst.

The healthy fail the sick,
The living fail the dead,
But none more so than we,
Who eat of heaven's bread.

And God said,
Let there be Light:
and there was Light.
The Lord of hosts hath sworn, saying,
Surely as I have thought,
so shall it come to pass;
and as I have purposed,
so shall it stand:
And one [angel] cried to another, and said,
Holy, Holy, Holy, is the Lord of hosts:
the whole earth is full of His glory.
Let not mercy and truth forsake thee:
bind them about they neck;
write them upon the table of thine heart:
And the spirit of the Lord shall rest upon Him, the spirit of wisdom and understanding, the sprit of counsel and might, the spirit of knowledge and of the [extreme reverence] of the Lord;
But the God of all grace, who hath called us unto his eternal glory by Christ Jesus, after that ye have suffered a while, make you perfect, establish, strengthen, settle you.
perfect - mend, complete, equip, intensify
establish - set fast, fix, buttress
strengthen - invigorate, make strong & mobile, move to achievement, effective
settle - lay a foundation on rock, grounded, consolidate
The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly.
