A Cleaning

Sitting in this time of you
A journey of step small
Desire draws me closer
A whisper of Your call

A mirror true of shining
Stares me in the face
Choices hidden showing
The unneeded I embrace

Cleaning out the closet
Of junk within my soul
An opening of freedom
A surrender of control

I find inside some stumbling blocks
The things of which I fear
Will I give them to my Lord?
Or don’t I trust Him here

Avoidance drives these prayers of fear
That things will go my way
Could I change these thoughts of mine?
To see what God would say?

What if I failed in tasks today?
Lost my job or health?
Would I wallow in despair?
Or would You be my wealth

Let words repeat when worries rise
That fear is not my King
With my soul entrust to You
My Savior do I cling

Our mighty God, with loving grace
Heaven has He made
His precious Son walks with us
Speaking, “Do not be afraid”

Needle of my compass
Drifts away from You

Realign my focus

Bathed within Your love

In time to set aside
Abiding in Your presence
Growing deep inside

Purpose be attention
To be within Your way
Bless me with the grace

Joy in knowledge true
As needle points towards light
God so ever patient

Beauty of White

Beauty of white covers the scene
Contrast is turned up so bright
Darkness and light, two sides oppose
So clear of the choice that is right

One which is lost in tangles and snares
Caught up in dependence on me
Barren and sharp, alone in the wood
Gratification is all that I see

The other is pure, white, soft and clean
Reflecting Your glorious light
Will is laid down covering all
Vision of hope is so bright

Journey beyond, let my path be to You
Focus on heaven above
Let my will be of You, grateful of heart
Covering all with Your unending love

Pilgrimage of Soul

How would it be to set aside?
A season just for You
A preparation of the soul
A pilgrimage to change my view

Three pillars strong our Church has set
Fasting, prayer and alms
The outline perfect guides our way
As laying as palms

To shift the focus to above
Away from self in me
Towards greater things beyond this world
Practice draws the heart to see

But one thing more forget not now
In this time this year
Our God is shining through the dark
A whisper sounding clear

Let soul be open, awareness be
Of gifts for open heart
Our God bestows abundantly
His blessed love to us impart

Winters Snow

Winters snow is falling
In gusts of blustery white
Protected in our home
Warmth of hearts delight

Scene is touched with grace
Covered everywhere
A blessing so complete
A single place not spared

Season’s barren colors
Transformed from up above
A miracle of simple
Blessed from the one of love

Perspective of the soul
In the hand of God
Fear now be dispelled
Trust in our friend, the Lord
