Poetry

The Wild

I took a step forward And there was no trail

Nothing to follow

No crumb, no sign, no sail
I took another step

Now in the wild

Surrounded by the unknown

Adventure lurking for miles
One step after another

Still unsure what next I’d find

When the unpaved road turned

Leaving all uncertainty behind
Enveloped in pastures of green

Learning in the wild and free

No path, no fear

Just my steps, my heart and me

Poetry

Refined

I could not have made it through without YouI could not have learned what I needed to

You were there and You provided

That trial would be useful, You had already decided

You saw what I couldn’t and saw what needed to be changed

You made it happen so thanks to You

I am no longer the same
Isiah 48:10
See, I have refined you, though not as silver; I have tested you in the furnace of affliction.

Poetry

Here with You

Here I am safe

Keep me in your arms

As I clean out the messes

That cause me nothing but harm

Here I am loved

Let me never forget

As I keep walking further away 

From a broken past and regret

Here I am hopeful

Fix my gaze on You

As I search to know You more

Align my thoughts with Your truth

Luke 4:32

They were amazed at his teaching, because his words had authority.

Psalm 37:4

Take delight in the Lord and He will give you the desires of your heart.
