I Shall Not Hesitate

I shall not fear 
or hesitate,
to walk the path 
that is straight.
Through valley's dark 
without fear,
towards the Lord
I draw near.

Living In Simplicity

To live in simplicity,
frees one from toxicity.
The burden on oneself,
greatly lessons,
when not weighed down,
with much possessions

Open Your Present

It's not out there, 
in the unwritten future.
It's not back there,
in the settled past.
It is in
the here and now,
that you must live,
and hold fast.

Open Me

Open my heart,
open my eyes,
make me aware,
let me realize.
The beauty,
the truth,
glory inferred,
the blessings You've given,
through Your Word.

Without Murmuration

I shall hold my peace,
without murmuration.
I trust You Lord,
in all situations.
Your love rescues me, 
from life's wrath,
and places me,
on Your path.

Humble Lesson

I confess and have contrition,
I've not been in submission.
I've tried to do things with my hands.
By my strength I've worked to stand.
Thus what I earned I could not afford.
Better to wait upon the Lord.
Who planned success before I began.
Who sought to raise a humble man.

God Hears You

God hears you when you speak,
whether strong or if you're weak.
You may be a pauper or a king,
rank and possessions mean not a thing.
You have equal access,
much as monk or a priest.
Preacher or a sinner,
all are invited to God's feast.
He listens to prayers of all sincere.
His endless love desires you near.

Resist In Faith

Resist the devil
and his claims,
that will make
you free.
Instead stand firm
in faith in God,
and the evil one
will flee.

Placement Of Faith

I will not struggle
in God's hand.
As He place me,
in new lands.
Nor do I
need understand,
to know there's goodness,
in His plans.

The Unfurious Sound

The sound of the world
is as falling brass,
the continuous noise,
of breaking glass.
The sound of the Spirit,
is like a gentle wind,
a whisper of love,
that one hears within.

A Fence Around Me

The Lord has put a hedge,
a fence around my life.
To protect me from attack,
from the hatred of the light.

If in battle I should fall,
my foe celebrates in vain.
For through the grace of God,
I shall rise again.

Against The Slur

Deceit and lies
may occur.
An accusation,
a ruinous slur.
Stand firm in faith,
against evils schemes.
For the Lord your God,
shall redeem.
