Butterfly, Butterfly

Butterfly, butterfly spread your wings It’s time that you shall fly. The pain of your birth and the length of the wait Is now to you behind. Keep now My pace and look just ahead For desires of your heart will be fulfilled  Even some sweet surprises so grand You never even imagined them. Enjoy […]

Captive

Captive is this heart  To obey Thy Word’s commands Oh, help me Spirit of God Crucify this fleshly man. For love it must pour out In a way that aligns just so For every Word of Truth Arouses a slumbering soul. Keep me O’ God so near  From selfish and adulterous ways That steal the […]

Wonder

Do you have left any “wonder” At the majestic King of Kings The way He speaks to humans And is so mindful of everything?   Do you still gaze at stars in the night time And praise Him for beauties beheld Or has your life become wanting No notice of love that swells.   Just […]

A Soft Rain

I spent the morning on my back porch today. It was a beautiful morning to move my prayer closet outside and listen in a new place. Soon I looked up to see a most gentle and soft rain falling. It wasn’t making much sound but the birds began to have a time together. They were […]

The Uprising

I’m Still Here

Every warrior of Christ faces adversity.  The enemy does not allow you a breath between battles. Yet, when faith does arise in one’s heart strings you’ll declare… I’m still here… You may barely rise from the ashes When another tsunami blows in But anchor your sword down deeply Brace yourself in the wind. And declare… […]

His Presence

Some may run after power And others for positions of wealth Many who desire notoriety And a few just simply for self.   The world may honor some diplomas And the church may well do the same But Christ is looking for His “Davids” Whose pursuit is simply His face.   The hearts who will […]

The Power of a Pause

There’s a silence with a lasting impression It is the mark of a paramount pause Where noise briefly lost to the hearer Is as loud as a huge waterfall.   It’s the 400 years of the white page Between the New Testament and Old Where the Word of the Lord was quiet And men were […]

When The Shofar Calls

I want to be bold and brave, Lord Yet, fearful I am that I’m not. For as the time is nearing The darkness crowds in a lot.   So many deceived by spirits From religious to lying tongues Soon your throne will direct then The shofar calling heralds to run.   Oh many will crush […]
