Resetting of the Way

Weariness of lungs
Breathes out my daily stress
Spoils of my ego
Of fear and nervousness

I come before my hope
Resetting of the way
To lay all at Your feet
To be with You and pray

Wrapped in warm embrace
Welcoming in light
Treasure of outpouring
Everything is right

Alignment of the soul
Faith is planted deep
Joy is blessed within
Fold of shepherds keep

Commitment here of trust
Confirming with amen
A smile warms our face
Soon I’ll return again

Mornings Shadow

In mornings shadow cast
A light within the way
Speaking words of silence
Calling one to pray

Stillness of surrounding
Time of sacred, lay
Gifts found in Your presence
As world drifts far away

Gripping of desire
Hold soul within Your stay
Melting of the wax
Molding soul as clay

Home is the word known
Love is on display
Entwining the divine
Uplifting grace this day

Moment After Sunset

Moment after sunset
Still the light shines through
One to contemplate
As day bids fond adieu

Eye closes in snapshot
Treasure to review
Captured in the soul
Seen through Spirits view

Masterpiece on water
Calming shades of blue
Peace speaking in color
Whispered purple hues

Stirring of the deep
Something of the true
Hidden in the light
Heavens passing view

Stillness sings a psalm
Treasure to construe
Returning to this blessing
Drawing soul to You

Waves in Grain

Examining a stump
Of cut down tree
Waves in grain of growth
A lifetime here to see

A drop in still of water
Ripples flow beyond
Fading in the deep
Moving of the pond

Vision of the Spirit
Waves within the way
Flowing in and out
Of my soul this day

One of inner growth
Moving close to You
Drop of sacred love
Flowing light anew

Inlay of Grace

In mornings shadow cast
A light within the way
Speaking words of silence
Calling one to pray

Stillness of surrounding
Time of sacred lay
Gifts found in Your Presence
As world drifts far away

Gripping of desire
Hold soul in Your stay
Melting of the wax
Molding soft as clay

Home is the word known
Love is on display
Entwining the divine
Uplifting grace inlay

Closer

Here within Your presence
Closer than before
Comfort of Your love
Together to adore

Pondering this closeness
Distance of this space
How far do I keep?
My Lord of precious grace

Sometimes in the heavens
One of up above
Sometimes in the background
Unaware of love

Keeping You at arm’s length
Afraid to let you in
Let me open all
A prayer here to begin

Awakening of insight
Spirit that You show
Deep inside You dwell
Closer than I know

Practice of Adoring

Jesus of full presence
Light here radiates
Gift beyond the mind
Soul now contemplates

Eyes drift into closing
Vision passing through
Cast away all doing
Being one with You

Song surrounds in silence
Soul’s ear opens wide
Psalms of wisdom sing
Blessings to reside

Practice of adoring
Word of Spirit sung
Exercise of faith
Loves fountain is sprung

Radiate through me
Connecting three in one
Fragrance of Your song
Light infused by Son

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

Wandering on the Bridge

Body of my Lord
Rests upon my tongue
Echoing the prayer
May Your will be done

Wandering on bridge
Between heaven and earth
Foundation of the Son
Spirit given birth

We enter into One
Of suffering and joy
Field of great compassion
This humble soul employ

From love filling heart
May Your Spirit flow
Word of blessing speak
For the world to know

Blanket of Silence

Laying down of silence
Rests upon my head
Blanket here of comfort
Worries to be shed

Quieting of thought
Time of You and me
One within the dwelling
Blessed moment be

Word of soul now speaking
A sharing intimate
One beyond of knowing
Of faith to recommit

Blessed light instilling
Mercy cleansing pure
Nourishment of journey
Eternal love endures
