It is Always Now   5 comments

I pray here now to declare

Your presence ever vibrant here

To speak aloud Your glories

In the eyes that meet You in the mirror of Your creation

To not absorb my self with self

But rather selflessly release

Free will to become one with Yours

Harness thoughts that seek an unknown future

Speed the track from past to present

Memories that shackle when dwelt upon too long

Or living in an impossible tomorrow

In an air that only You can breathe

Bring me back to this moment

Where I can be of love and service to live in full expression

Like a flower blooming on the vine

Never minding fate of wilting, falling

Back to earth then heavenward where the journey never ends

While still unfurling petals grow to magnify its beauty

With nature all surrounding giving homage to You near

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

Curtain Call   8 comments

Oh Lord I pray to hear your voice when you call

Especially in times when I cannot see you at all

Like a mariner dependent on bearings and instruments

Seeking port on a far and distant shore

Cause my heart to rise above the depths of unknown seas

And in that fleeting moment bask in the brilliance of Your majesty

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

The Offering   Leave a comment

I love eggs and the value of nutrition they fulfill

I love that for a chicken it is not a sacrifice but an offering

That without guilt I can thoroughly enjoy

My friend offered her suggestion of how much better it would be

To have and taste farm fresh eggs from her sister’s hand raised hens

The idea became a desire that I quietly tucked away

When to my delight on a country walk I met these hens the very next day

It’s so important to remember

All the desires that our hearts and minds contrive

Because dreams soon become erased

In the maze of life’s unknowns

But God who knows us all so well

Forgets not his children’s hearts

Our grandest and even littlest thoughts are logged

Engraved in God’s own heart

We are the River   Leave a comment

Lord, oh God, Creator

Most Mighty, Holy One, Sacred and Supreme

When in lowly valley I fall sullen

You appear mysteriously so sudden

You gratefully redirect

My wanderings and my schemes

And permeate my dreams

The earth, and all of us, Your creation

Symbolic of who You are

Rivers flow on endlessly

Quenching the thirst of earth and all dependent on it

The waters unseen work churns beneath the surface

Hiding deep within its banks and bottom

Precious gems and many treasures

Living waters return to You in greater measure 

By sweeping up each soul in its holy water

We, who You made most magnificent

We, who You trusted with Your creation

Return to You, most Holy One, who we call our Maker 

And better yet, to love you more, as our Mother and our Father

Heaven’s Rain   2 comments

Disrobe me Lord I pray

Of tempting temporal pacifications

That I might see with Holy Spirit eyes  

And utilize and multiply the gifts of Your design

Make straight the path that leads to You and wide the portal of this heart where hidden treasures lie

Plant my feet and still my heart

And cause my soul to seek

With confidence so centered

To capture and contain all that freely comes from Thee

With rain from heaven soak me with your faith and grace

Always prepared to meet You face to face

Sanctify this temple home to be Your Holy place

Project upon my mind a glimpse of heaven’s glory

Let your thunder roll and lighting shake

Out the dark and dreary dread of night

Make patience work her fruitful task

Growing faith so great to cause the sun to wake

In a blaze of brilliant golden streaks

Where darkness has no place to seek

Turn hearts and minds to follow

On the path that you have promised

With hope to foster faith

In the confidence of Christ

To acknowledge You are here

Each breath and pulse in rhythm

With the ebb and flow of tides

Every wave that touches shore

Speaks in ocean’s tongue

Counting endless blessings
