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

For the Love of All   1 comment

How could I not believe the nearness of you God

For all that is and was, you have created

And you can see through all creation’s eyes

Today I heard a sermon preached

On the Good Samaritan

Realizing how I am surrounded by your loved ones

And grateful, ever grateful for the love of family

Surrendered in this process

To receive the goodness bestowed

And still to remember that all is a give and take

Love cannot be denied

And must, in this sometimes overwhelming state

Be expressed to love one another

For this is another way of also loving you

God Thank you for the Further Proof of Your Existence   Leave a comment

For every living creature I have loved still is loved

Growing greater with every remembrance

May it be with Your love in me to deeply love all near to me

I pray to hold one another in the highest esteem

And when challenged by self-righteous judgment to first look in the mirror

For the prison bars of grievances to have no power

Over love that can never be hidden from your eyes

I claim this day to walk with You

To take time to embrace the beauty that can always be found when sought

For You who lives in each of us is always near

Exposing truth, expressing love, in both the obvious and sometimes mysterious

For your ways may be impervious to knowing

But we know without a doubt when You’ve been here

New Day   3 comments

God help us with our addiction to news

And also those who’d rather snooze denying what’s apparent

Finding joy and peace and happiness

Is truly a treasure hunt

Worth the seeking and the finding

For You exist even amidst the rubble

Of what we call our troubles

There You are and have always been

Not seeking You is the only sin

For once we do discover You

Doubt and fears become dismissed

Replaced by faith to open hearts that reveal Your Majesty

Flight   1 comment

Flying in a metal bird

Made from man’s imagination

All this effort and ingenuity

To get from here to there

For years of countless generations

This has been a burning quest

Requiring time and talent and much unrest

To first believe then achieve a skyward peopled flight

I propose that this has been disguised and often unidentified

This inner knowing, constant yearning, mental churning

Desire to attain an ultimate and evident closeness to the Heavens

To be nearer to our home

Oh foolish generation

Who knows not God as Love

A commuter-ship to Mars and back still would leave a desert gap

If not navigated by the Spirit

Making heaven home the mark

By pleasing our Creator

With love for one another

Is a worthy goal and an unparalleled destination

The Center of the Edge   2 comments

Here I am standing on the edge of this present moment

At the precipice of here and now

Tempted by tomorrow

Muscles strain to maintain motionless in this place

All might it takes sometimes to merely be at peace and trust

The yet undiscovered treasures of this very moment

Vision clears to realize

All that is worthwhile

I take a breath

Thank God for this

To linger while I smile

Two Hearts   1 comment

Lord, I pray before I dress

To consider all that you have blest

Put my thoughts to test

That in You all reliance rests

 

Consider this

And do not miss

What needs to be your daily quest

 

As far as the east is from the west

Is the extent of My love growing greater never less

On this truth You can surely rest

I have endowed you with my very breath

Given you a heart that beats

Ability with hands and feet

Knowledge of me when I speak

 

Welcome me as you would the morning sun

Trusting that the best is yet to come

Upon this path is born a new day bright

Where in your heart there glows a light

You call it love, I call it might

From which comes all that is good in life

 

Make this your engine’s driving force

Our hearts united on this daily course
