You Raise Me Up

November 5, 2013 § Leave a comment

You are my blessing of the greatest kind,

My love, you raise me up upon this throne,

I am cherished and loved and graciously adored,

And in everything you say I feel your heart reaching out to mine,

My love, you raise me up and I can’t thank you enough,

For the kindness your warm soul brings to me.

Catchin’ Me Off Guard

September 16, 2013 § Leave a comment

And I feel my insides turning like a wrench is twisting them,

And I can’t breathe…

And I can’t see…

I’ll just lie here, in the cold space of stars and twinkling lights,

Letting the dust of your memories settle in my lungs,

Your heart makes me weak at the knees,

Makes my toes curl tight to my feet,

Yeah, your love is something that catches me off guard,

Like a kite shifting in the wind, carry me away…

Carry me with you.

Take me home.

Sweep me off my feet and into the sky.

Help me to fly.

Your love is such a broken lie that I can’t deny,

And I need You to carry me home,

In your love,

Through the storm,

I hear your voice calling out my name,

Just pull me in and I’ll come to your beckoning.

His Grace Took My Grave

When the sun drops out of the sky,

I’ve got no alibi,

For how I spent my days,

The one Almighty,

Will ask me what good have I done lately,

And when I’ve got no reply,

I’ll just shrug my shoulders and quietly resolve,

“I guess I just left the path,

Fell astray,

Forgot what the Good Word said.”

And He’ll take me in,

Because He sees a good man,

My forgiving God,

His grace took my grave.

See Through it All

In the brashness that is the everyday,

The mundane,

Moving on without thinking about what it is that should be done,

I am lost.

 

Cross over,

Step on and up,

Bridge the gap between what is real and what really should be.

Calm My Soul

Noise.

Black noise ringing in my ears.

Buzzing.

Louder and louder and there is no escape.

I can’t rid myself of what can’t rid me,

And I need the freedom to know what it means to be free.

I can’t comprehend how to break loose if I’ve never known it before.

Show me the light,

Show me the silence,

Show me my desires and help me achieve them.

Calm my soul,

Free my spirit,

Let me be at one with You, Lord.

Lost in the air I breathe,

Thoughts are so fleeting,

When will we ever meet?

The end is only the beginning.

Devastation.

Destruction.

Depletion.

Of the physical, man made world.

Of the the human body.

Of the intellectual mind.

Of the stirring spirit.

When we are torn down and torn apart,

There is nothing left,

But You, oh God.

You are what’s underneath it all.

You are what keeps this clock ticking.

You are what builds us up again.

Why is it always home where the pain originates?

Why is it that the darkness can so easily destroy the light?

How can we overcome when our hearts are so shattered?

God, where is the hope for the lost?

The hope for the broken?

Rain down your grace, lift up the stolen,

Our souls are wrecked from all the destruction,

No peace can come when children lay still,

Not like this, not in turmoil, not hidden in chaos,

They’re gone,

And all we can do is clean up the remains…

 

Dear God, come on down!

Redeemer of all,

Come save us,

Come heal us,

Lord, please lead us through the fall.

Cut me open and bleed me dry,

I need to feel the pain of dying,

To know what it means to be alive.

 

Brush my hair back,

Pull me close to your soul,

You are the reason I am who I am.

 

The struggle, the rest,

The fights I’ve wrestled with just to know how to take a punch,

My story is one that stands on high ground,

Soaring to heights I’ve never known.

What Grace & Mercy Mean to Me

April 13, 2013 § Leave a comment

Oh sin!

The pain! The agony!

The gnashing of teeth at my soul,

When I do the things I don’t really want to do.

I desire to do good,

I desire to be good,

My greatest aspiration is to be like You,

Oh Lord,

But I fall short…

Your glory is so great in the pure and unblemished being that You are.

You alone are holy.

Lord I come,

I cower down,

The fear of what someone so perfect like You,

Would think of someone like me brings me to my knees,

But You lift me up,

In grace and mercy,

You give me new life,

A true beginning to start fresh in Your Love,

I cannot understand why You allow such disdain and accept me back

Every

Single

Time

But You do,

Because You are good.

And I’ve come to You to be with You,

To grow with You,

To know You,

To fall in love with You,

Through prayer,

Through listening to Your spirit,

Through acting out of love in the ways that You move me;

Lord, I accept that You make me free.
