An Adventure Story

There is no such thing
As a heroic tale
That ends at the start
Without wind or sail
But one goes on a journey
That’s where draws the heart
And each step that is taken
Is of every whole, part
For there is no beginning
Where rests all the glory
It’s the begin-agains
That tell the great story

“I am making a way in the wilderness and streams in the wasteland.”  (Isaiah 43:19c, NIV)

Better Land

Better Land

I see Him in the rays of sun
that cast a warm, pink glow
I find Him in the crispy cold
that chills my face and toes

I see Him in the melty blues
in lakes below the trees
Where mountains shoot from land to sky
and gift us snowy peaks

He formed the creatures, and the moon
He put the stars in place
He grows the seedling from the earth
moves wind across my face

He’s here, and knows your every thought
the things you’ve always kept
safe, away from diggers deep
where, with folded wings you wept

To restless hearts, He gives new hope
and reaches out a Hand
As we leave our burdens there
and move to better land

“In his hand are the depths of the earth, and the mountain peaks belong to him.” (Psalm 95:4, NIV)

 

Heaven

Heaven

The horizon seemed to speak
to tell me that the line
I saw drawn at it’s edge
was only to remind

That as sea continues on
stretching from that spot
and places teem with life
that eye would claim, did not

So, life continues still
for those we can’t behold
and take our place, we will
among that bless-ed fold

Something meant for all
when turn to Him, we do
An all-inclusive call
not for a chosen few

He said that he did send
His Son not to condemn
but save through Him, He would
an estranged world of men

So call to Him at night
need Him in the dark
tell Him where you stand
with faint or solid heart

He hears each voice that sounds
the whisper and the scream
the shout that fills the air
the fright that fills our dreams

So, know that there is peace
and life beyond this shore
We take His hand, and with each step
renew our hope once more
