Beyond me

Poetry

Beneath my circumstances

Beyond my dreams

There’s a place in my heart

Only You can reach

On my thoughts and emotions

I will not rely

But Your Word and Your promises

Shall be my guide

Day by day

And breath by breath

I will learn

To find Your rest

Unfaithful

Poetry

What part of You should I write of today?

The way You raise Your hand to stop me when I’m going the wrong way?

Or the blessings You shower down to remind me You love me and are here to stay.

How about the confidence You bestow when everything else is on shaky ground

Or the Hope you instill when no tangible reason to hope can be found

Yes those are all great. But I think there is  still another favorite I should proclaim.

When I told You I may never be faithful, You gently grabbed my hand and said “I know” and kept loving me anyway. 

2 Timothy 2:13

If we are faithless, He remains faithful, for He cannot deny Himself.

By Design

Poetry

I can find little purposes and create a decent life for myself here.  I can fill up my time, enjoy meaningful experiences, develop fun-filled social circles and excel in many things.  I can dive into a career and pour myself into volunteer opportunities and work toward bettering myself and my community.  Only… those things don’t fully satisfy my purpose here unless I’m doing them with You. 

I desire to learn Your promises

To believe the things I cannot see

Embrace a life that looks different

Confidently as I walk it with Thee

Securely trusting and following

This path You’ve designed for me.
