Words Above Paper

I reach into another time
A time I share with you
In Spirit of connecting
The sharing of the true

These words written on paper
Transcend a distance long
Intimate in sharing
To which we both belong

A bond is shared between us
In love of grace divine
We seek our God within us
Our hope to will align

We travel forth towards one light
A journey drenched in graces
A blessing shared along the way
Are souls in which God places

So let us pray as gathered two
In spirit beyond time
Our souls unite in praise above
Towards the light we climb

Askew

The page is blank before me
I give my thoughts to You
My trust so often flailing
My focus drifts askew

Worries overcome me
I sink into the sea
I set my eyes upon You
Only You can rescue me

I know You see my challenge
You know what’s in my heart
I pray for faith that’s strengthened
A grace that You impart

Now let me rest in comfort
Knowing You are in control
Of our covenant so treasured
As the keeper of my soul

Wings of Soul

Streaming light of glory bright
Shining through my window clear
Open heart, surrender now
Love of Christ so near

Wings of soul, open wide
Translucent in Your light
Breath of Spirit lifts the now
Raised above in God’s delight

Vulnerability flee away
Protected in Your bond
Transparency bless me now
Vision of beyond

Journey now of this day
Let me fly above
Viewing as a visitor
Traveling in Your love

Talitha Koum

I am lying down
Unable to getup
Anxiousness is binding
With life I am fed-up

Close my eyes, head swirling
Overcome with fear
I hear a soft voice calling
I feel a presence here

I say to you arise
A gentle power speaks
Love with the words
To my heart it seeks

A warming, overcomes
As He takes my hand
Love is overflowing
Faith I understand

Eyes open into light
And fall within His gaze
Arising new today
In Him I am amazed

Voyage of a Gentle Touch

Sit with me and gaze upon
Beauty falling from up high
Dwell within the grand design
Questions ponder, asking why?

Flakes which fill the view entire
Falling from a distance great
Voyage of a gentle touch
The pure descends to clean the slate

All is covered by this grace
The scene is changed in moment still
Silent beauty covers all
Time is paused in winters chill

Who is this God with power great?
Who reaches out to change our view?
Who sent His Son with tenderness
To cover us and make us new

Born above, gift unique
Falls upon this furrowed brow
The frozen melts with touch beyond
Waits upon acceptance now

So sit and dwell upon the scene
So much love to contemplate
Accepting blessings from above
Gratefulness in mercy great

Joy Within the Same

Joy of temporary
Singling out of me
Accomplishments reward
From the world to me

Joy of recognition
Of how I shined above
Contest that was won
Separates the love

Joy of permanence
Belonging to the one
Binding in our wounds
Clinging to the Son

Walking hand in hand
Together in the way
Sharing of the heart
Connecting when we pray

We each have gifts to bring
No better than the rest
Encouragement to shine
One body now confess

Our voice in song of praise
Holy be His name
Love of one in binding
Joy within the same

Calling From Above

Listen for the call
The voice of our true passion
Purpose of our being
Desire God did fashion

Only you are you
Molded in His hand
Placed within this time
According to His plan

World will steal away
Confidence of heart
Listen to the voice
That Spirit will impart

Take a step today
Of prayer to do His will
A piece of kingdom build
Faith will He instill

Big not be this task
Simple of love great
Whisper of the Spirit
Fear now abdicate

Measure not the cost
Moving in His love
Mission for the King
A calling from above
