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

The Unexpected   2 comments

– The Unexpected –
Sometimes things just don’t add up
Other times things reconcile to a tee
Most important is not to make
Perfectionism an idol
 
Letting go and letting God
Doesn’t mean to not have a care in this Divine process
But rather to trust and be the best steward that I can be
For with the God who loves us more than we could know
Miracles are possible and visible every day
I thank you God for your eyes constantly upon me
And all Your beloved creation
 
All is known by You and nothing can be hidden
Take from me I pray, anything that would obstruct
The good purpose that You’ve planned
 
In my mind choices are preconceived as doors number one, two, or three
But by letting go and letting God
Leaves room on my plate for more
Because with You there’s always that unanticipated door number four
 
God is so much bigger than anything the world can do
I hear your gentle whisper, ‘I am here; and I am loving you’

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

God’s Timing   1 comment

Seeking to spend time with You with pen in hand

To connect, to listen, with hope to be inspired

The phone interrupts our discourse

Or so I thought

Hesitation gave way as I answered

To find that this untimely interruption

Was Your calling that I was longing

For the greatest gift of good purpose

Is our usefulness to another

Giving time of self bears the riches of a crown of jewels

My soul is lifted and refreshed by the humble response of the caller who is blest

And I imagine angel scribes in heaven

Making note of our connectedness and kindliness

As they too marvel at the wonder of Your timing

How Much Time Do You Have for Me   3 comments

I can wait

For I am eternity

Waiting for your desire

To spend all of it with Me

Patience is a gift

And I cannot give to you

What is not already all of Me

Open your heart

And your eyes will see

A glimpse of all I have in store for thee

Be prepared to receive My love

In measure so immeasurable

It must overflow to burst upon a hungry, wanting, waiting world

As my messenger you receive

The gift of being my ambassador

You may not see your reward today but do not be forlorn

For hope is ministered through my angels’ hands to feed your soul, to keep you strong

Remember I am faithful

And I am always with you

Waiting, wanting, loving you
