Pausing for breath . . .
Racing to the finish and listening to the crowd?
Oh, what a mistake!
My life was meant for something else.
Instead I’m seeking something more today.
Established for me long before the world began . . .
So simple, so Divine . . . your sweet love.

Limped to the mailbox.
In the sky,
Likewise my mind, were clouds.
Yet there you were brightening the day!

No sin left unforgiven
At the last day
If you but ask.
Let Him fill you with His grace . . .
Eternal life Him.
“Do you love me?” I do.

An ashen heap,
So full of memories burned and gone
However, not truly forgotten, but then:
Enter upon the scene Jesus Christ
Sin forgiven as ashes swept away and treasure redefined!

Jesus in my heart?
Omnipotent Savior . . . more!
Yes, friend and lover!

Sometimes life goes along a familiar path for a while then . . .
My heart pounds as I face a brick wall.
I thought I was clever and strong.
Looking at the wall from this side still . . .
I find myself trusting the Lord, but . . .
New heart, new hope, new crack in the brick wall . . .
God provided a toe hold to climb up and begin anew!

What would I do without you . . .
Except rely on my own questionable strength
As I used to do.
Kept me happy for brief moments, yet . . .
Not filled with Your joy as I know it now.
Sometimes I lose my focus on you, but then?
So quickly you pick me up and hold me close once more!
