Parousia (pa-roú-si-a) is a Greek word that means "coming" in English. It is in reference to the coming of Christ at the end of history. The second advent Jesus Christ is coming back not as a babe to be crucified. He is coming back as Lord of lords and King of kings with a rod of iron to set things right and to rule. Parousia is a collection of poems about God's love and awesomeness written in hopes of whoever desires a closer relationship with him will seek him because you will find him. It's written for comfort and encouragement regardless of your circumstances because God can and does change things. It is written for faith and strength to follow your dreams and reach for the sky because even if you miss, you are still among the stars. Man will sometimes say no, but God always says yes. It is written for favor and wisdom, a reminder that God loves all of his children. His only requirement is to have his love returned willingly and to keep him first in your life because he is a jealous God. It is written for God's generosity. When you obey him, he will pour out an overflow of blessings upon you so many that you won't have room enough to receive them all. It is my prayer that whoever takes the time to read these poems will stay or become inspired as well as enjoy them as I have enjoyed writing them. Thank you and God bless.
