My Little

Poetry

My little words

What can they do 

To bring glory to You

Lost in translation

To describe salvation

I give my words to You

My little hands

What can they do

To bring glory to You

Working and striving

Forever trying

I give my hands to You

Leave It

Poetry

I am too imperfect to make judgement calls. I do not have the all seeing, all knowing wisdom that God sees with. My perspective is limited, narrow and self-centered. Therefore I leave the judgement calls to Him. 

Be still and know that I am God

I am working all things for your good

I am merciful, gracious and kind

Do not judge others, vengeance is mine

Romans 12:19
Dear friends, never take revenge. Leave that to the righteous anger of God. For the Scriptures say, “I will take revenge; I will pay them back,” says the LORD.
Jonah 4:2

…I knew that you are a merciful and compassionate God, slow to get angry and filled with unfailing love. You are eager to turn back from destroying people.

Truth

Poetry

Disarm and destroy the lies
The ones that invade my soul

The ones that make false promises 

And hide the dirt with drizzles of gold

Remove the veneer that blinds my eyes

Implant Your truth, unravel the disguise

Genesis 3:1

Now the serpent was more crafty than any of the wild animals the LORD God had made. He said to the woman, “Did God really say, ‘You must not eat from any tree in the garden’?”

Philippians 4:8 

Whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable — if anything is excellent or praiseworthy — think about such things. 

Contentment

Poetry

I asked for years how to find itI searched, pleaded, implored

Imposters came and went until

One day it arrived at my door
It came in unannounced

Hidden by the storm outside

It learned it’s way around

Waiting for me to recognize
So when the storm ended

I looked to see where it went

And standing right beside me

There it was, true contentment.
Philippians 4:11-13
…for I have learned to be content whatever the circumstances. I know what it is to be in need, and I know what it is to have plenty. I have learned the secret of being content in any and every situation, whether well fed or hungry, whether living in plenty or in want. I can do all this through him who gives me strength.
