Joseph James Breunig 3rd Poems

Gazing into a starry night,
I see a deep indigo sky
with perfect placement of twinkling light.
Stars reveal the expanse of time
...

Pushing this flesh into alignment,
guided by The Word most holy and pure,
I’m striving to learn principles
for a sanctified life to endure.
...

Today’s great undead poets,
awash in the Internet sea,
seek to fill the void of sensible emptiness
of our cyberspace world.
...

In the quiet garden of Heaven,
one day I'll walk beneath the trees
with the coolness of God's Spirit
flowing more gently than an Earthly breeze.
...

To be on your mountain top
with an elevated view,
could my chances increase
for getting a glimpse of you?
...

Cuddling with my beloved
under the warmth of satin sheets,
I gently sense the merging of souls
as our bodies become one flesh.
...

It's hard to extol the merits of mankind
and to lavish excessive praise is insane;
recognize the gamut of vain emotion
and treatment of our brothers that's inhumane.
...

8.

Those disembodied remnants,
Earthly remains of unknown souls,
are now assembled at my doorstep.
Having piqued my attention,
...

Wellspring of spiritual water,
It's bubbling inside me.
Gently soothes my bruised soul -
Covering Life's pain of mystery.
...

Yes, the goal is to reach souls;
but at what further cost?
Unacceptable is using fear as mind control
for reaching those considered 'lost'.
...

Written down is God's Word;
we are encouraged to be heavenly, joint heirs.
So examine His Word for Truth's proof,
for His wish is that 'we join Him there'.
...

To willingly lay down one’s life
for the redemption of all others
is an immeasurable sacrifice.
More painful than His Suffering
...

At the end of yet another week,
weary soldiers are huddled behind church doors,
reminiscing about the recent past with outlook bleak -
Not knowing that Life can offer so much more.
...

For just one day, I'd like to see
a tour of God's throne room and His glassy sea.
Or perhaps to take a leisurely stroll
among heavenly streets made from purest gold.
...

On God's holy mountain
I traverse a spiral path
of an upward climb
towards His higher ground.
...

Preparations by the Groom have been completed;
He joyfully awaits the day
that marks the remainder of eternity
when the Church shall be swept away.
...

Visionless is no way to be:
having sight, yet unable to see.
Soul's blindness that's dark and deep
indicates your spirit is fast asleep.
...

Have you sealed your fate
with the rejection of Him?
Accept Christ now
before your life wears thin.
...

After twenty years, as cursed as I may be
for having learned computerese,
I continue to examine bits, bytes and words
and insure that I'm one of those computer nerds.
...

Once my earthly journey is complete,
humbly I'll stand before Your judgment seat.
So in advance I faithfully pray to have
a positive ruling for you to mete.
...

The Best Poem Of Joseph James Breunig 3rd

Evening Sky

Gazing into a starry night,
I see a deep indigo sky
with perfect placement of twinkling light.
Stars reveal the expanse of time
from before the birth of humanity;
their existence came from dynamic energy
which was created by spoken word
that no man has ever heard.
Solitary spirit of awesome might
painted this heavenly canvas
with a flick of His hand and uttered thought.
Divine creation shared with you and me -
It's part of our heritage and His eternal legacy.

Author/poet, Reaching Towards His Unbounded Glory

By Chris DePalma (NY, USA) - I find it interesting how we are on two different paths, but yet I find I can relate to a lot of what you write. I guess it shows me the more I discover about us humans, the more I can see inner similarities in spite of the outward differences. I also think that our paths may look different on the outside, but it's really the same spiritual journey for each of us toward one God, however we see Him/Her. By Jim Breunig (Laurel, MD USA) - I found Joe's book refreshing, inspiring and a great change of pace from today's social environment. There's more violence than ever in the media - so it's uplifting to read something positive. As the title suggests, Reaching Towards His Unbounded Glory is a spiritually based book. Although I am not a very religious person, I enjoyed the book because it's not overbearing with preaching or religion. This book contains poetic expressions of events and topics that everyone can relate to. These principled messages are good reminders of the simple things in life that we often take for granted. Also, I like the format of the book. Unlike a novel, where you may have a long chapter or no place for a good stopping point, this book is a compilation of short versed poetry. This enables you have a quick read while commuting, enjoying a coffee break, or anytime when having a few minutes to relax. Reaching Towards His Unbounded Glory is a book you'll want to read again and again. Whenever you feel a little down, this book will take your mind off the annoying things in life to remind us of positive things and what's important. Footnote: I feel I should inform you that Joe is my oldest brother. My purpose in providing this fact is to show my honesty and credibility. Having spent many years serving as an army officer, my word is very important to me.

Reaching Towards His Unbounded Glory by Joseph J. Breunig 3rd As reviewed by New York Times best selling author Ellen Tanner Marsh Any Christian surveying the current state of modern poetry could easily become discouraged, given that much of that poetry can only be categorized as nihilistic. At worst, such poems seemingly promote despair and violence—against society, the church, or even against oneself. At best, they consist of self-centered whining and overdramatic emotionalism, completely devoid of spiritual muscle and ethical backbone. New author Joseph J. Breunig 3rd, in his fine debut collection Reaching Towards His Unbounded Glory, takes a fresh stride in the opposite direction, in a poetic compilation that should delight anyone who enjoys reading Christian literature as well as poetry. The book comprises over 100 poems of various lengths, although they generally do not exceed one page. In a slight concession to modern poetic style, some of the stanzas are unrhymed, yet all of them speak to Christian themes, such as faith and its testing, seeking a higher road, the state of grace, error and sin, biblical people and events, and personal redemption through God's word. A common thread that runs throughout the majority of the poems is that individuals —regardless of any mistakes they may have made in the past— can still turn to Christ as their savior and begin the slow, sometimes painful, but always positive process of redeeming themselves, in developing a new life filled with abundance and spiritual serenity. By reaching for this new and uplifting collection of Christian poems, readers can indeed begin reaching towards God's glory.
