Trust is the answer

Someone big enough to hold

The pain in my heart


No one can carry

The depth of loss I’m feeling

He lives to restore

To make new and give real life

To drink the living water


It’s so difficult

To stop the noise in my soul

If you will focus on love

Surrender to truth

Breathe deeply from His presence

Practice the fundamentals


Stay in the process

Stop asking the “why” questions

Just do the right thing

See the person before you

Who needs God’s tender kindness


Trust is the right word

It always leads to Presence

And a grateful heart

It’s the hardest work I do

A choice I have trained to make


Because I have a mind

I’m responsible to think

Not from twelve year old beliefs

Get the big picture

Reason from reality

The question is “Who defines that?”


That’s my decision

One very carefully made

I’m responsible

For how I will view the world

How I view self and others


“When I am afraid, I will trust in you.  In God whose word I praise, in God I trust, I will not be afraid.  What can mortal man do to me?”  Psalm 56:3-4


“But store up treasures in heaven, where moth and rust do not destroy, and where thieves do not break in and steal. For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.”  Matthew 6:20-21


This morning as I was reading the Bible, I read out loud Matthew 2 .  After careful thought, I have chosen to view the world, myself and others through the lens Matthew presents.  This process I chose fifty-three years ago, has led me to inexpressible joy.  Matthew reveals the basic fundamentals I seek to practice in chapters 5, 6 and & 7.   I trust the process he reveals and it continues to surprise me with energy as I train on a daily basis.  This painful but joyful process, is revealed in the book, Delta Blues : From Darkness to Light available at
