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

I Find You When I Seek You   6 comments

I’ll keep my eye on You
To distract me from a world that’s torn apart
For my world with You
Is whole and filled with peace
When I keep my eye on you

We are not far from forever
We are living here and now each day for the better
While my heart runs its race with quickened pace to find its way to You
I think of living now as Our forever

Coincidence, a nod from You
Vibratory sunset hues
An angel in disguise
Shows me You are near
Not just now but always and forever

Knowing Where My Home Lies   2 comments

How happiness can be curtailed

By the sudden notion of its temporariness

How families once united must each go their own way

That nothing in this world can stay

In any sort of constant state

Oh grievous heart now heavy sinks

When all at once acknowledging

This is not my home

Do not here relax and think

That this is all there is

Oh God with strings from heaven

Lift my heart to Thee

Where angels sing and love and joy is born anew in each and every moment

Where eyes are fixed on only You

For this is why I know

That to You my heart belongs

And for You, I live a foreigner

On this plain till work is done

With love to give me breath each day to carry on
