Your Panoply

Praise and worship,
I give to thee,
Your marvelous panoply.
You fulfill
and are
all in all.
Your children rejoice,
to hear Your call.

Love Never Faded

Time has made
the colors faded.
The world falls
in decay.
But God’s love
forever brightly.
To His children
a fresh bouquet.

Access To The King

You have access
to the King.
The creator of
everything.
No special right
is required.
Or membership in
the admired.
Set aside
personal fear.
Our loving God
beckons you near.
Hearing each
one’s request.
Forgiving sin
and granting
rest.

Never Sated

Never full,
never sated,
desire for You
is unabated.
Love for thee
never undone,
I call to You,
Holy Spirit,
come.

Be Not Chaotic

Let your heart
be not chaotic,
with anguish
that will not cease.
But rest in Christ
and dwell in peace.
It passes all understanding,
yet dwells in the humble
and the awed.
It's rest in the Holy Spirit,
and the comfort
of God.

In Anticipation

All creation waits
in anticipation
for the coming day
of the Lord.
For in that day
every tear
will be dried,
and all things
will be
restored.

To Elicit Response

To elicit response
the Lord will call
not with thunder
to shake all.
Not with lighting
or a whirlwind.
But with a still small voice,
one hears
within.

Aromatic Variation

The things of the Spirit are aromatic,
giving the soul a sweet breath.
But to unbelievers,
the christian life
has the smell
of death.

Heal The Scorched

Forgive me Lord
and welcome in,
the repentant soul
scorched with sin.
Extend Your hand
towards me to heal
and grant to me
Your Spirit’s seal.

The Mythical Myth

To the critic and the cynical
God seems only mythical.
A fact they dismiss
as only
a myth.
Yet through the heart
in clarity,
one see no disparity.
In faith
all things proclaim
the glory
in His name.

Sweet Never Tart

The taste is sweet
never tart.
The essence of joy
within one’s heart.
Bought with a price,
one can’t afford,
yet paid and given
by the Lord.

To Fish

One may have
a simple wish,
to just relax.
perhaps to fish.
But the Lord
instructs,
the work
to begin,
and believers
become,
fishers
of men.

Not So Lofty

Not so lofty
that it can not be obtained.
Not so easy
that one ignores what is gained.
Yet available to all
for those who make the choice.
To seek after God
and make angels rejoice.

Flames Of Love

Like tongues of flames
the Holy Spirit came.
Resting upon
those in His name.
Giving strength and power
from God above
and filling each
with divine love.
