My Desire

February 25, 2015

*

As I prepare to enter the soul country of the lives broken by terror the Psalmist led me to write my response to these Psalms. 25, 55, 85, 115 and 145. Slow down and listen to the unseen voice of the Maker of the Heavens and the earth and get in touch with “Your Desire.”

*

My desire is to bring you
My life, my soul, my passion
Show me and teach me your ways
Guide me in your truth

*

You’re the healer of my soul
Lifted me out of the pit
Quenched my thirsty soul
In quiet I come

*

When I am silent
I remember my failures
My weaknesses I ponder
I hunger for you
You receive me with kindness
Your mercies draw me to you

*

When I draw near you
You always come with your joy
Incomprehensible love
Rooted in history
Promises that never fail

*

I choose to believe
This revelation of love
Confronts us humans
Who wander in wilderness
Looking for the face of God

*

I found the freedom
To live spontaneously
Meditate and consider
Accept my failures
And the failure of others
See through eyes of compassion

*

it’s fun to be free
To know I have the freedom
To choose what makes sense
Many voices are calling
I found one I can trust

*

The past affirms this
The present brings me His peace
The future I celebrate
Eyes opened by the Spirit
To see the unseen as the Real

Undying passion

God defines His love
It came through His beloved
His compassion lives
 
I know His story
I know my story of pain
His story gives life
 
He walks with kindness
He is filled with tenderness 
His name is Jesus                  
 
Jesus speaks of love
He modeled it for us all
Where else can I go?
 
He suffered for me
He also suffered for you
I can’t comprehend
 
He is in pursuit
Love always wins when you see
Undying passion

pursue a life of love

Though it may cost you all you have
Seek understanding with passion
Make it a first priority
Insight will follow
 
Understanding links the past
With the present circumstance
Solitude will help you make
Future connections
 
We have just one life to live
I’ve decided to live well
Joy will be at my center
Peace will be at my goal
 
Pursue a life of love
Asses where you are
Be gentle in the process
