Here and Now   Leave a comment

An unplanned life is like leaving home and not knowing which way to turn

 

Without the willingness to learn how could we ever grow or change

 

Or even dare to consider that life could be an exciting adventure

 

No matter what the cost all could be lost without the openness to receive all the love and unexpected gifts that God’s gifts of nature always offer

 

Turning what many see as mundane to a supernatural experience

 

Open my eyes oh Lord and pour in your love and enlightenment

 

I implore you to seek my heart to explore

 

Find me here and take me where

 

Only Your guiding hand can lead

 

To prosper and not cause harm

 

Fill each cell with brimming faith

 

If only fear and doubt is my enemy

 

And you have overcome all adversity

 

Then take this life You have freely given

 

That I may return it to You with love and with commitment

 

With all my fears and doubts that are only momentary

 

Your promises are true and heaven is not a dream in some unexpected tomorrow

 

But with You, heaven is here and now

The Gift of Patience   Leave a comment

Patience is an artist, whose only brush, is time

She colors the day with faith

And with trust she fills each line

 

How often do we struggle 

Forcing situations, and filling empty holes

Instead of withholding and waiting

For patience to complete

What might be her greatest masterpiece

 

Yet while still working at her craft

With her faithful standing by  

She is forever able, and so eager to refresh us

With the gift of Spirit’s fruit filled peace
