At The Crossroads


With my heart pounding

I face the dark passageway

And must make a choice . . .

Shall I retreat filled with dread

Or seek opportunity?

I shall

follow you

one step at a time.

Seek Directions

November 23, 2016

Anticipation or dread . . .

You chaRge the beating of my heart

and set my eager feet in motion,

but which way points the compass?

Direction – A Poem From My Soul

Your love fills my soul

And your peace

Is like nothing I could imagine.


This morning I woke with a start,

I stopped to think

And stumbled off the path.

My fear frozen heart beat too fast

And my mind drew me

In another direction

But not a good one.

I breathed deeply,

I called out to you,

And you showed me the map

Leading me back to you.

The peace in my soul

Softly comforted me.

I smiled

Ready for a new day

Filled with wonder,

Filled with you.

Not Lost . . .

June 10, 2012

Ever find yourself feeling lost?  You know how sometimes the fear sets in . . . where to go?  Which way to turn?  Ever realize, as I have, that when you let go of the fear you suddenly see the solution is STARING AT YOU and has been ALL ALONG? 

Do you feel that way right now?  The answer has a name.  JESUS is the answer . . . He’s right there and in it with you.  Take a deep breath . . . open the eyes of your heart .  . . He’s been reaching out to you and you just need reach out to Him.  He loves you.  Listen.  You’ll hear Him say so . . .
