You Are His Delight

February 1, 2015

*

What’s it take for man to see
A God who delights in him
Who’s smiling with arms outstretched
For those who fear Him

*

Fear means one who stands in awe
Of love that’s demonstrated
Love and forgiveness lavished
On those who’ll receive

*

Believing is the key
Knowledge is available
For those who will search
Who will hunger for the truth
Who long to know what is real

*

God never forsakes
Those who seek with their whole heart
That is a promise
This revelation is true
It has been tried and tested

*

“God wants me to see him, be with him and draw my life from His smile.” A. W. Tozer from his book “Pursuit of God.”

Music In My Soul

January 20, 2015

*

There is music in my soul
I’ve trained to practice basics
My body is the instrument
My soul holds the strings

*

When the strings get tight
And stress gets unbearable
A surprising sound
When I surrender my soul
Music flows that brings comfort

*

I draw near to God
A daily practice I’ve found
When I feel good or feel bad
He always comes near
That is the promise he made
One I choose to trust today

*

The winds on the sea
Can toss the soul all about
The storm and the rain bring grief
I learned this one thing
When I’ve set my sail to seek
The storms have become a gift

*

This mystery comes
To all and not just a few
Who choose to seek love
To be defined by what’s true
To align the soul with joy

*

Freedom is the fruit
Peace passes understanding
My mind and heart are captured
Knowledge will illuminate
Hope is born in the darkness

*

I interviewed a young musician years ago and asked him how he played the instrument so well. He said, “My coach is a concert violinist. Every day she pulls out her instrument and practices the basics until she gets the sound out of the instrument she wants. I do the same.” My instrument is my body. My soul holds the strings. I found the coach of life eager to train me to be loved and love. Psalm 20 holds promises I have found to be true. The music in the Psalms is what I train to practice. All the best!

your cry is heard

When you are in the valley
Deep down in your greatest pain
Your cry is heard I promise
By the One who cares
 
There is something much higher
A love that is mysterious
It comes in my helplessness
Love larger than me
 
for those who are in their greatest pain
