Productive Waiting   2 comments

 

While I am waiting I will stay as busy as can be

I’ll stay and wait

Or stand and wait

Or walk then run then sit again

And sleep and eat between

Maybe write a book

Or see a picture I can snap

I’ll take a course

Learn something new

But all the while be waiting

I’ll not forget to pray

And remember to acknowledge

That while I wait I’m not alone

And although I cannot live tomorrow

To hold it in my memory

For tomorrow lives somehow within

Of the promise of what’s to come

While I live this day with gratitude busily awaiting

Baptism Requires Getting Wet   Leave a comment

In waters deep or shallow

I pray to keep rekindling this truth

To live today and give to You tomorrow

On my own I would drown in a puddle of doubt and sorrow

But with You, my God of all things possible

We can walk on water

Growing Closer to God   2 comments

Oh Lord I Pray

That while I feel as though sometimes confined within the bud

I trust in You with all my heart and incline to you my ear

To listen with faithful waiting

Ever ready for when You call

Without sight of what tomorrow holds

I trust that You are near

And thank You for a glimpse of Your presence here

Hibiscus   Leave a comment

Who on earth could create such a thing as this
“No one,” said the creature we have called hibiscus 
The One who lives in all that breathes
Who lives among us and far above us
Made me for all to see
To witness our Creator’s majesty 
To know that we are loved 
You call me hibiscus
But God calls you Most Precious

The Veil is Torn   Leave a comment

Come to know and to expect the Spirit working in quiet wondrous ways

For angels are always in your presence

Be alert and compassionate seeking how to please

You are precious and valued beyond your imagining and in My constant

 loving sight

There is no need to be guarded with Me

For what you try to conceal will only try to steal your soul

My love cannot be borrowed or purchased

It is a free will offering

To be received and returned willingly

By faith you are healed

By grace you live

By mercy you are forgiven

And the scars of your history are healed

By the forgiveness you allow

Broken hearts give sight to the sufferer

For the cost of true compassion is dear

See Me … for I am always here

In seabirds, sunsets, white capped waves

And in the mirror of your self examination

An Open Invitation   Leave a comment

Leave your calendar open daily with room aplenty for God to enter in

To find at day’s end  your slumber laced with  peace filled recollections of the Spirit’s encounters that are undoubtedly uniquely yours

Always and Forever   Leave a comment

If we could not see the sky

Could we declare it is not there

Yet there are those that would insist

Retaliate and persist to prove it does not exist

The truth after all is this

We are the ocean – We are its beach

Our Creator, like the sky

Always and forever is within reach
