Wrapped in Me

Life can be stressful
So much to do
Come, rest in my arms
For a moment or two
Lay down your burdens
In this hand of mine
Your cross on my shoulder
Fall into my time
Rest now my child
Wade into the deep
Let go in my comfort
Your soul in my keep
Drift into my freedom
In my kingdom be
My chosen beloved
You’re cherished by me
Dwell in the knowledge
That my love is true
All of my treasures
I offer to you
Peace of my promise
Will never fail
With blessings before you
I’ve yet to unveil
Abide in our union
Forever we’ll be
Let’s journey together
Your soul wrapped in Me

Grace Received

Let honesty now shine
We like to cast aside
To minimize our sin
To downplay our great pride
We all are broken souls
Children of the fall
Selfishness engrained
A burden cast on all
See our great God of love
Salvation cost Him dear
Poured out by blood of Son
A sacrifice severe
Priceless gift of mercy
Offered here for free
Throwing soul at feet
Sobbing desperately
Whisper of Your voice
Embrace deep in Your love
Welcome in Your dwelling
Raised now to above
Cherish now this gift
Remember when deceived
Give when we’ve been wronged
The grace that we’ve received

Paradox of the Ministry (2 Cor 7-18)

We hold unto this treasure
Earthen vessels all are we
That all surpassing power
Not us but from God be

Afflicted every way
Struck down but not destroyed
In dying carry Jesus
His life may be employed

Deaths at work within us
But life is found in You
The One who raised our Lord
In hope He’ll raise us too

Everything’s for You
So grace will be bestowed
Abundance for the more
Thanksgiving overflows

Self not be discouraged
As outer wastes away,
Soul now be enlightened
Renewed within each day

Afflictions of the moment
Are transient we’ll see
Product of this challenge
Eternal weigh, glory

We look to not what’s seen
Unseen be our view
The seen is transitory
Eternal be of You

Tendered Soul

I offer in this moment
A tender wounded soul
Placed fully in Your trust
Healing needed whole

I pray for angels tending
With touch of grace bestowed
I pray for Spirit kneading
Surrounded overflowed

May it please be molded
By Creators master skill
Soft in its surrender
Formed to do Your will

So grateful in this blessing
Embrace welcomed by You
Through door opened by Savior
Eternal hope in turning to

Let rest be in the knowing
Safe within Your hands
Massage of Spirit blessing
Aligned within Your plans

In Light of You

Garden that I’m tending
An exercise of heart
Priorities I’m setting
This day right from the start

Meetings need arranging
Money, duties, groceries
Home that needs some fixing
Dealing with anxieties

Let me stop the swirl
You bless me a free will
Let me give to You
My choice in moment still

First meeting of this day
With my God of all
Amazing that you’d be
Hoping for my call

Let my soul be fed
With Spirit and by Word
Heart be moved by grace
In silence You’ll be heard

Through daily let me practice
The tending of my soul
Patient, humble, loving
And You to make it whole

And for all my treasures
You are all I need
You offer them to me
All others I concede

So let me take my list
Everything to do
Let me hold it up
Viewed in light of You

Nights Darkest Hour

He sends us a mission
Out into the sea
Apparently not with us
Perhaps abandoning

In nights darkest hour
Overcome in fear
Waves of doubt toss our view
Can’t see Him drawing near

Panic strikes the heart
Don’t know what to do
Depending all on me
Hopeless is the view

We see Him drawing closer
Can’t distinguish Him from here
Panic strikes the heart
Take courage do not fear

We command our Lord
To tell us what to do
Jesus says to come
With eyes of loving you

We move unto our Lord
Fixed upon His gaze
Wind distracts our faith
Sinking in the waves

Save me is our cry
Depending all on Him
He stretches out His hand
And saves us from our sin

Praise is all we have
In heart we all applaud
Peace now fills the air
Trust in our Son of God

Song of the Morning

Song of the morning, connects with the soul
Stilling and drinking You in
Freshness of birth, floats in the air
Let the Spirit arise from within

Peace of transition, engrained within light
The glimpse of Your wisdom is seen
Let this moment arise, Your presence awake
Let the oneness of us be foreseen

The path is prepared, Your beacon shines bright
Submission of will forms the way
A prayer of surrender flows from the heart
Let me lean upon You this day

Just a Minute

Give me a minute
That’s all that I need
Pause now in silence
The rush now, concede

I just want to love you
In silence of heart
A message of wisdom
I wish to impart

I’m here if you need me
In your busy day
Just turn to my light
If you lose your way

When people frustrate you
Not filling your needs
When treasures you’ve purchased
Leave empty your dreams

Know that I offer
Gifts blessed from above
Peace, joy and hope
Unconditional love

I leave you a blessing
I cherish your soul
Let my love dwell within you
With peace I console

Scott’s Prayer

I sit upon the street
My needs upon display
People pass me by
Without a word to say

It’s like I don’t exist
Discomfort in their face
Easy to dismiss
Encounter to embrace

Reinforcing wounds
Salt upon the scars
Hoping for a brother
Too break down the bars

They don’t want to support
Abuse of drugs or drink
But would they let me share
The feelings that I think

My need is to be noticed
To have somebody pause
Show that I have value
Not subject of their cause

To let me share my dreams
Tell about my day
Say where I come from
To listen to what I say

I long for the connection
A bond to world beyond
A silent prayer is lifted
Would you please respond?


Marvel in the daily
In gift of life we’re blessed
Seek within the moment
Love of God, our quest

Slowing down the flow
Glimpse within a pause
Purposeful attention
To the light that draws

Sparks of light collected
Joy to feed the soul
Insight of God’s wisdom
Closer to the goal

Witness a connection
Love within a bond
Rejoice in acts of kindness
Open heart responds

Offer words of beauty
Encouragement to lift
Blessings flowing freely
Transparency to gift

Treasure found in smiles
A lighting of the heart
Rejoicing in Your kingdom
Grateful to take part
