Alone Together

Poetry

When I see You, nothing else matters

When I feel You, the rest of the world disappears

When You gently whisper to me

Contentment replaces all my fears

Let me hear Your voice

Let me feel Your embrace

Let it just be me and You today

With Your voice comes purpose

Your perspective brings clarity

Your loving kindness brings no judgement

Your grace draws out the best in me

Let me hear Your voice

Let me feel Your embrace

Let it just be me and You today

Discernment

Poetry

My name is discernment

Trust what I reveal and know

I show you the hidden things

You’d otherwise never be told
I show you opportunities for blessing
And how to count sorrow as joy

I whisper God’s wisdom 

Amid this world’s noise
I sense when something new is brewing
When it is time to block an attack

I sense calmness and times to be still

When to move on and when to hold back
I’m a gift, don’t ignore me 

Shut me out or throw me away

Embrace me and listen

I will bless and enrich your day

Armor of Faith

Poetry

I found myself on a battlefield

With shots being fired all around

With bullet wounds and bleeding

I crumbled to the ground

Then I saw a wall the Lord had built

Which He lovingly secured me behind

He had been building day and night

My unseen architect all this time

Behind the wall He gave new armor

Loaded me up with truth and insight

Taught me to trust His instruction

To give me victory and win the fight

Ephesians 6:10-17

10 Finally, be strong in the Lord and in his mighty power. 11 Put on the full armor of God, so that you can take your stand against the devil’s schemes. 12 For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities,against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms. 13 Therefore put on the full armor of God, so that when the day of evil comes, you may be able to stand your ground, and after you have done everything, to stand. 14 Stand firm then, with the belt of truth buckled around your waist, with the breastplate of righteousness in place, 15 and with your feet fitted with the readiness that comes from the gospel of peace. 16 In addition to all this, take up the shield of faith, with which you can extinguish all the flaming arrows of the evil one. 17 Take the helmet of salvation and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God.
