IT’S NEVER ME!

August 10, 2019

Why is the shepherd running ahead?

Does He not care?

Where are my caring friends?

Again,

nobody wants me!

“My child.

I Am ahead of you preparing the way!”

They quietly discussed His purpose,

though the child wondered.

Hearing and seeing many behind the two,

she asked the Lord

“What are they doing?”

“My child, they are fasting while providing prayer support!”

She knelt at His feet.

FOOLISH HUMANS!

July 10, 2019

If I was passed a glass of poison to drink, I would destroy it – not drink it.  God would urge me to.  He loves me.

Oh, the hug He gives!

Why then, when anxiety plagues me in so many painful ways, do I hold onto it and make myself sick?  Lose my joy?  Perhaps cause others to follow this wrong path with me?

Turn to Him, ask for help, turn it over!

 

DO NOT PICK IT BACK UP!

Surrender

July 10, 2019

YES! I FOLLOWED!

Surrender

gate

What is that glow

which lies beyond the gate?

Two steps away,

it beckons.

Dare I enter?

HE LEADS – I FOLLOW – IT IS GOOD

June 21, 2019

Thunderous applause

reaches me from above.

Some call it a storm

but I call it joy

Hidden wonders yet to come!

TAKING AFTER THE FATHER

June 4, 2019

This body,

Full of flaws,

Has become the sanctuary of the Most High

Simply because

I gave all of me

To Him.

LOVE STORY

June 3, 2019

The story with no ending

and chapters I hunger to forget.

My soul stirs in wonder . . .

Could this be the day?

Trust comes hard for me.

But I need it for it holds the map!

Finally I study it and gasp!

In big letters, You wrote to me!

“Fear not!

I am with you!”

THE CHOICE

March 3, 2019

The voice of change,

of peace,

of growth,

of renewal

comes in a whisper.

We must make the choice to listen.
