The Rhythm of Your Soul

August 25, 2011

~
The earth is filled with
The unfailing love of God
Therefore honor him
~
I bow in reverence
My joy is over flowing
His eyes are on me
~
My eyes are fixed on his love
This is a story I’m told
I’ve an unquenchable thirst
To know what is true
~
You must engage your thinking
Aware of your wounded heart
Find out that love pursues you
The unseen Spirit
~
We’ll focus on the person
Jesus Christ proclaimed this love
Be aware of your questions
Love is pursuing you
~
I dance to the tune 
A revelation of love
A rhythm of joy
~
Intimate eyes see
The beauty in creation
The secret silence
Is one you must fight for
Stop all the noise and listen
~
The beat of your heart
The rhythm of your soul calls
You have a voice in the day
Stop pleasing others
Get in touch with what you want
Take time today to like you

Each Breath a Gift

August 20, 2011

~
Faithful in the little things
Integrity is a must
Humility and wisdom
In response to love
~
I have no power
I cannot secure my life
I came from the dust
~
Each breath I take is a gift
The love I receive treasured
My heart beats with joy untold
An unfailing love
~
There is no trouble
No death or desperation
Christ has not dealt with
~
Knowledge is the key
Faith opens the lock to joy
Practice His Presence
Perseverance will secure
Obedience to the love
~
He will rescue you
From fear and anxiety
This is a promise He gave
A clear decision
That I get to make each day
I come hungry to know Him
~
God delights in you
It’s beyond understanding
I know that it’s true
I have learned through practicing
Being a seeker of truth
~
I’ve tasted the fruit
Of seeking a righteous life
Although I have failed many times
Each time I have learned
The friendship only deepens
Forgiveness is the miracle
~
Compassion and gentleness
I discovered in silence
Focus on this teacher’s heart
Captured by His mind

Beyond Comprehension

August 12, 2011

~
The earth is God’s footstool
The ocean held in a jar
The other hand holds the sand
His breath made the stars
Who can know the mind of God
Who has been His counselor
~
God declares real love
It’s hidden behind the false self
The ego builds illusions
That must be medicated
By the drivenness of lies
~
God is in our box
Our minds think we create him
Our ego declares it so
Who will decide it
Who’ll make the final judgment
A question to consider
~
We each trust someone
Since I will live with my choice
I will make the decision
Of whose thinking I will trust
A gift I have been given
~
His eyes are so intimate
They look at me with compassion
They search throughout the earth
Looking for seekers
~
You are a good case study
You’ve tuned into the message
Christ in you, hope of glory
You are his great joy

Expectation

August 5, 2011

~
I wait in expectation
For you to draw near to me
Teach me what I need to know
To reflect your love
 
This greater joy comes
When I confront illusions
False idols I will call them
Born in childhood
 
They run deep and are toxic
Hidden in the secret place
Unconsciously in my soul
There is only one cure
 
A friend who loves me deeply
Who gives me bread for my soul
Only the Holy Spirit
Dismantles the lies
 
I am powerless
When I arise in the day
Controlled by a bitter way
I cry out for help
I found God to be faithful
Compassionate and giving
