Weary

Life is getting weary
Clouds greet me this day
Monday morning duties
Burdening the way

A tendency to focus
On the weight of me
An indicator warning
Another view to see

Time to change the focus
To ways that I can serve
Seeing needs of others
Not what I deserve

Dwell upon the lonely
Needing help this day
Tend Your Spirit quickly
Sending prayers their way

Inspire ideas holy
Of kindness to be shared
Surprise of unexpected
That somebody cares

Let eyes see with a vision
To help a broken soul
With words of You uplifting
Worries You console

No longer I am lonely
Your Word touched me this day
A broken soul in healing
My weight taken away

I see the sun now shining
The light has broken through
Though sky is overcast
Soul sees the love of You

Ripples in Beyond

Souls of heavens dwelling
Embraced within the light
We turn to grace in bonding
Focus shining bright

Of you who dance with angels
Rejoicing within song
With vision of our Lord
Through soul we all belong

Our connection in this world
Ripples in beyond
Counting on loves binding
Turning to the bond

Send Spirit of the message
Of voice to help us see
The truth within your knowing
The perspective of eternity

That love lives on forever
Troubles all will pass
Turn to Christ in seeing
His gaze eternal last

Living Life

In which are the moments
When I will live my life
They are found in joy
And they are found in strife

Moments which are chosen
Passion in the air
Desire of the heart
Times in which we share

Treasures of the heavens
Love in binding page
Cherished in the heart
Found in every age

All are wrapped in You
Stories glisten bright
Engrained within the soul
Recalled with pure delight

These moments are in You
Serving in Your way
Stepping out in challenge
True being to portray

Day not pass me by
Stolen by routine
Let me live this gift
As Your plan is seen

A Thousand Angels

Angels sing through sparkling light
Gift of heavens precious grace
Let me join in praise abundant
In the moment, in this place

A beauty seen in this encounter
Beyond this world, the soul can see
A moment’s gift of unique splendor
My God confirms His love, for me

A message sent, to show His love
A thousand angels, shine their light
I sit in awe, a cherished treasure
A blessed gift of God’s pure light

Grateful

Grateful is the song
In our heart this day
Soul is lifted high
Walking in Your way

Blessings all surround
Poured out, overflowed
Grace that You bestow
Love of You explodes

Joy is in our step
Hope is in our prayer
Love consuming flows
Gift of You to share

Light is cast on all
Darkness is dispelled
Drawing close to You
Is my soul compelled

Song is in my heart
An empty soul is raised
With voice of angels strong
Our great God we praise!

Great Light

All of creation
Reflects Your great light
A touch of grace precious
Shining being bright

Within the light of calling
Fulfillment of Your plan
Encouragement to be
The being who I am

Your Spirit blessed within
An ember of Your flame
Ignite with Word of love
The truths of which we claim

Not from our power be
But purpose from above
Focus turn from self
Reflecting Your great love

Set Aside

Embrace, acknowledge and set aside
The feelings of the now
Dwell within the emptiness
Pray Spirit will allow

Put aside the things of me
Be one within the bond
Treasure of the heavens
Embrace here the beyond

Acknowledge love abundant
Filled within the soul
Overflowing blessed light
Every care consoled

Set the gaze upon You
One focus let me be
Return the feelings set aside
Through Your love let me see

Receiving the Now

We often cast away
The precious gift of now
A treasure set before us
Received if will allows

Distractions steal away
Beauty for our eyes
Precious gifts of soul
Encased in worlds disguise

We search inside our phones
Thoughts drift to future tasks
Rushing feet hurry forth
We put on our best masks

God plan is in the present
In this moment just for us
If we‟ll just pause with open eyes
Refocusing our trust

To know that God is present
Our being in His love
To open soul receiving
To help us rise above

Accepting His love given
To see within the now
For whom can we outpour?
His blessings to endow

Light of Rein

The day begins in vision seen
Light arises clear
Arriving in a blink of time
Sending Spirit near

How beautiful in wisdom cast
Your glory all around
That You begin with humbleness
By laying Your light down

Perspective found in the time
With stillness as its song
Open soul with eyes anew
Casting shadow long

There’s a film upon the pond
Seen in the birthing light
Stir the waters of the deep
Flowing message bright

Raising arms in solemn praise
Surrender to our king
Soak in rays of Spirit bright
Rejoice in gifts your bring

Offer drops in dew of will
Presented lifted high
Light reflects in sparkled joy
Alleluia is our cry

Awakened now the soul now shines
Gratefulness engrained
Shine through me, grace of God
Let Your kingdom rein

Hope of Grace

Cast away temptations
Let my pride recede
Free me from my laziness
Drain away all greed

Focus my attention be
On Your path prepared
Strengthen spirit of Your way
May Your love be shared

May blessings all be cherished
Gratefulness abound
Let me see with Your view
Your fragrance, me surround

I know I won’t be perfect
For only You complete
I offer my desire
My prayer left at Your feet

In Your hand I place my soul
Your kingdom let me serve
Hope is in Your grace today
Not what I deserve
