God of New

Lord of love surrounding
Connecting worlds of two
Physical and Spirit
Making all things new

Creations ever changing
Insight to behold
New in transformation
Those of willing mold

And what of His beloved
Think of whats in store
Treasure of His kingdom
Always giving more

Let fear not hold me back
Receive the gifts I’m blessed
Grateful for the moment
Light, let soul digest

Joy within this knowledge
Expectation in Your way
Soul explode in hope
Growing new this day

Compass

Needle of my compass
Drifts away from You
Prayer of need this morning
Adjustment of my view

Realign my focus
My treasures found abound
Mercy to this sinner
Bathed within Your love

May I dwell within You
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
Your servant be this day

Joy in knowledge true
As needle points towards light
God so ever patient
Here to make things right

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

Wisdom From the Vine

Into time of quiet,
The place where I find You
In the stillness of beyond
Above becomes the view

Rest now the voices
Screaming of things to do
Past the prayers of needing
Offering a moment or two

Dwelling into nothingness
Allowing light to shine
Receiving unknown graces
Wisdom from the vine

Emotions will not feel them
Faith will fill the cup
Trust will hear the words of soul
Hope will lift me up

Blessed within the mystery
Time beyond the known
By the goodness of our God
I’ll know the soul has grown

All About Me

I will make myself a king
With power over all
The center of the universe
I will make the call

Deciding whose deserving
Of love received this day
And who will bear my shoulder cold
Whoevers in my way

The world will change its view
Depending on my mood
Who will be ignored
And whom will I include

They will know their value
Of how well they now serve me
They better give me compliments
For my divinity

Because I am so deserving
My expectations must be met
My happiness will all depend
Upon the things that I can get

And when my life comes to the end
I’ll hold in empty hands
The loneliness of a wasted life
Fell into the devils plans

I would never speak these thoughts
Perhaps the words are stretched
But as I go about my day
Are they so farfetched?

Inner Space

Found in moments silence
A light within the dark
Voyage of the soul
Through Spirit we embark

Warming love divine
Fills the inner space
Foundation of our being
Blessed within Your grace

Drifting into nothing
Except unbounding love
Stoking of the knowing
Blessing from above

Joy is to be with you
Words cannot be found
Nourishment of soul
Grace of You abounds

Day of Ashes

How beautiful this day of ashes
Upon a path of holiness
Forty days is the journey
Away from our self-righteousness

Prayer and fasting lead the way
Towards the day of glory won
A perfect model walked this earth
As death was conquered by God’s son

We enter in a seasons time
To set our heart upon the way
We lift our eyes towards the light
To purge the soul of sin this day

Put on the simple, purpose filled
Blinders fixed on You
In the time of soul, awaken
Spirit nurtured, infused anew

Oh Spirit guide us on the path
Of things of which we have no need
Pride and greed and judgment flee
Which only serve to impede

Let this time be one of growth
Not just turning from our treat
A drawing closer to our God
Humility and soul complete

Let will be strengthened, practice learned
In paring down to what is true
The only treasures our soul needs
Mercy and the love of You

For in the end, we’ll pass through fire
Earthly goods and flesh will burn
We’ll reach up high and grasp Your hand
Rescued as the ash returns

Nourishment of Being

Nourishment of being
Fills, surrounding here
Word speaks, let me love you
In the stilling air

Breate the Spirit deeply
Filling all of me
Empty out the daily
Be of eternity

God of everlasting
Eternal love so pure
Be of self denying
Know only love endures

Grateful soul of knowing
Your touch within the way
Humble be my fragrance
Sharing light this day
