Cast to the Horizon

Overwhelmed this morning
With my fears and worry
Cast unto the horizon
Of thoughts of what’s to be

For the time of darkness
And shadows of the night
Soon will be consumed
By love within the light

Found within the dawning
A day that’s blessed anew
Prepared by our Creator
Of His holy view

Bask in colors flowing
Let light and warmth flow through
A prayer of offered trust
Into the hands of You

Experience

God is of the living
Experience to know
Facets of the many
Of blessings to bestow

Experience of goodness
His treasures to embrace
For nothing we deserve
Everything is grace

Experience His mercy
Death He does destroy
Endlessly forgiving
Our source of hope and joy

Experience of love
Every moment everyday
Unconditional
Shared in every way

Experience of being
So inspirational
When truly of the sharing
One transformational

Fulfilling His Vocation

Her only son had died
To Jesus, she appealed
He felt a Mothers pain
From death her child was healed

Mary called to Him
When Lazarus had died
He knew his friend would live
Still our Jesus cried

In the lonely garden
While his disciplines slept
Streaming tears of blood
Jesus prayed and wept

Increasingly aware
With every living breath
Fulfilling His vocation
Through suffering and death

Still he walked the way
Remaining faithful true
Becoming of His passion
All out of love for you

Through Peace

With a little more grace
And little more space
We’ll slow this virus down

With a little more care
And little more prayer
We’ll help those all around

We’ll give our thanks
To all the ranks
In service here this day

We’ll hope there be
Scientists see
A cure will come our way

We’ll turn above
To God of love
And know us He adores

We’ll place our hope
And know we’ll cope
Through peace that He outpours

Recipient

A wave of peace
Flowed over me
A blessed gift
Of mystery

A burst of light
Shown from above
A warming touch
Of precious love

A random song
Touched the heart
Stirring deep
Of You, impart

From whence it came
I’d love to know
Someday I’ll see
Your prayer did flow

Answer of the Calling

Fear not, my beloved
God is in control
For He has prepared
Many blessed souls

Scientists and preachers
Trained for emergencies
Doctors and nurses
We need everybody

Answer of the calling
With purpose, they exist
Sharing of their giftings
For such a time as this

A question offered to you
With choice to rise above
Answer of the calling
Will you bring fear or love?

Presence of Eternity

We can feel Presence
In a Church, empty
In a mountain forest
Or sunsets’ beauty

In soaking of silence
We become aware
One of the Presence
Of eternity, here

God all around us
This silence allows
Aware in the stillness
His Presence, right now

In silence of stillness
Our senses affected
Eternity’s presence
That all is connected

Brought to our senses
In silence, surround
For in the stillness
Our true home is found
