Let Me Let

Let me let this moment be
A prayer within of such beauty

Let me let the Spirit be
A resting place of three in me

Let me let, surrender be
Through Your grace, the soul be free

Let me let Your love be
A conduit of unity

Let me let Your will be
My life to live sacrificially

Language of the Light

Heard in the sunrise
And stars of the night
For silence is
The language of the light

A calling to stillness
With gifting of peace
A simple surrender
Of will to release

Forever seeking
Throughout the day
Intimate drawing
Of being to pray

With warmth of its love
We become whole
For God we encounter
In dwelling of soul

So Loved

You are so loved, don’t you ever forget it
Loved with My love, perfect true
You are so loved, don’t you ever forget it
Here, won’t you let it flow through

You are forgiven, don’t ever forget it
Forgiven with My mercy true
You are forgiven, don’t ever forget it
Be quick to share mercy too

You have a purpose, don’t ever forget it
To share gifts of unique value
You have a purpose, don’t ever forget it
Give what’s be given to you

You have been blessed, don’t you ever forget it
Born a creation anew
You have been blessed, don’t you ever forget it
Bring joy, in all that you do

You have a home, don’t you ever forget it
Perspective of hope in our view
You have a home, don’t you ever forget it
Eternity waiting for you

You Love Me Into

Fully dependent
On your grace of giving
With every heartbeat
You love me into living

All of creation
And all that I’m seeing
in binding of spirit
You loved me into being

Grace overflowing
Compassion and caring
With souls of the needing
You love me into sharing

Now and forever
Love through and through
Eternal joy
You love me into You

Open the Back Door

Open the back door
Venture outside
Bask in the sunlight
With You to reside

Upon a soft breeze
Under tall pine
Drawing the fresh air
Your Presence divine

Peacefully silent
Surrounding in song
Bird serenading
One creation belong

Spirit of drawing
Light flowing through
Inner and outer
Connecting to You

The Way of Contemplation

Awareness of calling
A drawing into
A simple prayer
Of turning to You

Invitation is offered
Of Presence aware
A simple acceptance
Of being right here

A simple surrender
Of our letting go
Receiving the truth
That You love me so

When distractions arise
So simple to do
Of ever so gently
Returning to You

A prayer now to carry
Of our simple share
Compassion and love
To shine everywhere

Contemplation is

Contemplation is
Faith of our gaze
Fixed upon Jesus
In His simple ways

I look at Him
And He looks at me
A mirrors reflection
Here what do I see?

Renouncing the self
Our heart, purify
The light of Jesus
Illumines our eyes

He teaches us
To see everything
In the light of truth
Compassion to bring

A turn of our gaze
To the mysteries
Of the life of Christ
That know no boundaries

Thus, we are learning
The inner knowing
To love Him more
Discipleship flowing

What You’re Looking For

My child, beloved
The one I adore
Please come and find
What you’re looking for

A perfect love
Acceptance, complete
A resting of soul
A divine retreat

Mercy unending
Grace blessed this day
A healing of soul
All fear cast away

Treasures of heaven
Of gifting in store
All blessed to you
And still so much more!

Floating in Contemplation

Contemplation is like
Learning how to float
In a pool of water
A process here to note

Clinging to the side
Hanging on in fear
Developing a sense
Of confidence now here

Learning how to trust
Slowly our feet lift
Gently letting go
We begin to drift

Into the unseen
Letting trust flow through
Presence in the water
That is supporting you

A process of learning
Of trusting to share
In an unseen presence
Likewise to, in prayer

Thoughts from Teresa of Avila

A simple thought for you
Truths to sink herein
In the depths of soul
May there be peace within

May you not forget
The infinite to see
That you are born of faith
Of possibilities

May you use those gifts
Ones that you’ve received
Passing on the love
Upon you God has heaved

May you be content
As child of God be
Let nothing frighten you
God watches over me

Let this Presence settle
Into your bones, bring
The freedom of the soul
To love and praise and sing!
