A Masters Stroke

All the leaves are painted
By Creators master stroke
A season of the calling
That our God invokes

Beauty of potential
That branches once concealed
Through moving of His light
A treasure now revealed

A masterpiece of awe
Pause river, now be stilled
Reflects a greater glory
In submission of the will

Eye seek the potential
In souls of path this day
Encourage inner light
To shine within Your way

Eyes of God

Have you seen the eyes of God?
A blessed gift in moment true
An unexpected chance encounter
A time forever changes you

The eyes in which compassion dwells
The gaze that draws you in
The depths of which has no end
The one who knows no sin

He who speaks His word of love
That makes all else fall away
The eyes which love right to the soul
My heart seeks him today

My deepest prayer asked through Your grace
Is that your love will shine through me
That my outside fall away and
May Your gaze through my eyes be

Opening My Eyes

Opening my eyes upon morning light
I am surrounded in Your presence
Pausing in the moment
To find You in the sweet fresh air
And breathing in Your spirit

Let me live for You this day
Let me work for You this day
Let me love for You this day

In the challenges presented
In the souls encountered
In the decisions of the day

Lord, give me wisdom
Lord, give me strength
Lord, fill me with Your love

And be in me

Old Insight

I see within the water
In glimpse of sparkled light
The message that You send
A gift of old insight

A turning back of pages
Remembered through the years
Reflections of the drawings
A picture painted clear

You were always with me
In joy and sorrows both
Hand of wisdom guiding
Encouragement of growth

Memories of beauty
Etched in souls delight
Treasures for the keeping
Binding us so tight

Dog-ear now these pages
In frequent turning to
When fear or trials rise
Let me turn to You

Our Song

Hear the Spirit calling
Drawing us today
Hope within the rising
To walk within Your way

Awakening the sleeping
Heart now stirs anew
Opening the window
To let Your light shine through

No longer in the darkness
We’ll shine Your light today
Freedom of the righteous
For humbleness we pray

Joy within the shining
Sin is cast away
Love forever dwelling
Graces sent our way

Spirit lifts us higher
Swirling into One
Following the Savior
That Your will be done

Glory to the Father
That the battles won
Building of His kingdom
Through the love of Son

Soul is burning brighter
Faith is growing strong
Putting into action
Your love within our song

Sharing with my brother
Hope that we will see
Dwelling with our Savior
For all eternity

Covenant of Being

Drawn down to the water’s edge
A time with God of soul
In stillness of the dawning
To be, our only goal

Humbleness adorned
Heart now be exposed
Feelings flowing free
Truth to be disclosed

On palette of horizon
He paints the world anew
Stirred in colors moving
A view the soul construes

Song of wave is flowing
A psalm known to the heart
Familiar hymn is calming
Peace the tune imparts

Light abounds anew
A filling of true joy
Container without lid
Instilled to be employed

Showered in Your blessings
In word of which You send
Perceived in contemplation
One love now comprehends

Covenant of being
Won by blood of Son
Glorious our bonding
Through grace a day begun

Wheel of Fortune (Rota Fortuna)

Life’s a wheel of fortune
Spinning through the years
Seeking of your treasure
Power, fame, careers

Sometimes we are king
In reigning over all
Sometimes we’re descending
I reigned before the fall

At bottom we’re the pauper
In need of everything
Then we climb the ladder
Begin the ascending

Each stage we are surrounded
Anxiousness we see
But there’s another answer
When Christ our treasure be

Christ resides in center
Our hope within the way
Dwell with Him in peace
Find Him now we pray
