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
