Clinging

Bond of heavens treasure
Embraces me in now
Clenching all desire
Grace that You allow

Pouring all my being
Connection, me in You
Soul swells full in loving
Desire flowing through

Transcending my emotions
Consuming all of me
Thirst beyond all quenching
Clinging desperately

Flowing through my veins
Blood now tingling
Fanatic needing more
The soul is glistening

Linger now this grace
Praying, wanting more
As moment dissipates
To others light outpour

Morning Observations

A tiny speck of morning dew
Glistens on a leaf of green
Insight sparks now in the heart
Seeking gifts within the scene

A tuft of seed drifts to earth
Softly resting down
Prayer within, roots to grow
Hope beyond now abounds

Gentle breeze stirs the soul
Attention drawn its way
Virgin air clean and cool
Drawing You to stay

Tiny flower opens wide
Basking in the light
Offers up its nectar sweet
Clothed in beauty white

Rising mist of nights remains
Drifts above the flow
Dissipating into now
Wisdom shown in letting go

From its perch the Spirit lifts
Going on its way
Seeking souls of open heart
Touching them this day

Resting now in insights seen
Dwelling Spirit soak
Move me in the ways of You
That Your scene invokes

The Space Between The Light

To grasp the space between the light
Where whispers to the soul are heard
In the time where flowers bloom
And sparks of love are stirred

To seek the moment of the Spirit
Where thoughts of inspiration flare
In the house of unity
Beauty sings its sweet prayer

To be in presence beyond time
Where life itself ignites
In courage born in hero‟s strength
The selfless draw their might

To dwell within the mystery
Where freedom truly rings
In the healing of all wounds
The source of all hope springs

Alas, this goal seems out of reach
For senses five lack their skill
But through connection birthed in faith
The gift is blessed in moments still

Blood Drawn

My child of a year
Pray, fever please now break
To doctor do we bring
His blood he must now take

My beloved screams in fear
His innocence heart pleads
Doctor orders to hold still
A savior now he needs

His gaze now turns to me
Protector from all harm
My heart breaks in compassion
As I pin down little arms

He does not understand
With tears of desperate cries
I pray with all my soul
He sees compassion in my eyes

Procedure now complete
He falls into my arms
We cling with loves embrace
Two hearts now seeking calm

A drop of symbol shared
Of Son nailed to a cross
His blood was drawn for all
As His Father watched

When my blood is drawn
Don’t understand Your ways
Let this memory arise
And see compassion in Your gaze

Stretching Hands

Lord of stretching hands
In passion You endured
Surrendering to God
Precious blood outpoured

In Peters desperate cry
In sinking in the waves
Rescued lack of faith
The need that all souls crave

In healing wounded souls
In stretching withered hands
We reach out in hope
In filling of You plans

May I stretch my hands
As humble servant prays
In reaching out to You
To those who’ve lost their way

Blessed in holiness
In touching of Your grace
Eternal hands are stretching
Joy in Your embrace

Another Sunrise

I have not prayed for a sunrise
I just assume it will be
A treasure taken for granted
One way in which God blesses me

Sometimes I don’t even notice
My gaze is turned other ways
My God isn’t hurt or discouraged
He’ll continue to seek me this day

Sometimes its gray and it’s boring
Like God understands the routine
In moment, light bursts forth in glory
Hope is displayed in the seen

Sometimes it captures my being
I can’t help but fall down in awe
Surrounded in grace and His beauty
My soul turns to Him to withdraw

Sometimes I marvel in wonder
In this painting of God’s perfect way
Causing all of creation to pause now
Praising Him for the gift of this day

So I’ll pray for tomorrow a sunrise
For the gift of His love here this day
Gratefulness birthed in His beauty
Attentiveness turning His way

Let sunlight serve as reminder
In vision see clearly this day
That everything seen is a blessing
To thank God along my way

 

Dawning Hour

Within the dawning hour
In sky of rising blue
I offer up this day to be
Seen in the light of You
 
May treasures that I seek
Be issued from above
Generous my gracious God
Outpouring of Your love
 
Rest now my thoughts to be
My soul within Your hands
Faith chase all doubts away
Trust be in Your plans
 
Acceptance flow within my heart
Your will my only goal
Receiving those in my path
Connecting through the soul
 
Grateful be my heart this day
Your blessings overflow
Let heart rejoice in visions seen
Your kingdom let me know
 
Wisdom blessed as Solomon
Within my being seep
To see my day through Your view
My soul within Your keep
