Wind And Rain


It’s a long long road that we must travel,
With toil and danger on the way.
Full of mysteries we must unravel
if we’re not to go astray.

We chart our course,
assuming fair weather,
Yet we find many storms arise.
Still we venture on,
despite the pressure,
waiting to see clearer skies.

-----------
Through the wind and the rain
we’ll keep on pressing.
Maybe slow but steady on.
Through the dark of night,
we keep progressing,
toward the light of the dawn.

If we fall,
we arise and we shall recover,
Shake off the dust and move along.
We’ve only this time,
there won’t be another,
so we all must be strong.

----------

You can seek advice,
you can walk with another,
as you journey toward your home.
But ultimately even with a brother,
you must walk alone.

Through day and night,
drawing ever closer,
forward bravely surpressing fear.
Always remembering,
as your progressing,
the end is drawing near.

Whether Martyr Or Blessed

Thy presence Lord
is always there.
Whether one is blessed
or martyr.
I cling to thee.
In faith I must.
Giving you my love,
and unwavering trust.

Nothing When Apart (based on John 15:5)

You are the branches,
I am the vine.
You must abide in Me,
and we will be entwined.
The result will be,
much fruit you will bear.
For apart from Me,
there will be nothing there.

The Works Of Grace

I show my faith,
through my deeds.
But it’s not my works,
that rescue me.
My sins through work,
are not erased.
But I am redeemed
by God’s grace.

My Old Friend



Good to see you my old friend What a surprise how have you been. I’ve been well, I hope that you’ve been fine. I agree It’s been a long long time. How's it going in your life. How's the family? How's your wife? How things change, now we understand. It's alright to change our plans. We're not the same as we used to be. So much that we, could not foresee. It's Time to go my old friend. Let's try to do this once again. So many memories, in the mind. We must not wait, such a long long time.

The Stand

There are times,
pursuing in light,
while choosing things,
that are right,
as are known to be,
in God's sight,
despite standing for
what's already known,
you may find yourself,
standing alone.

Psalm 51:10-12 (paraphrased and rhymed)

Lord cast me not from Your presence,
or take the Holy Spirit from me.
Create in me,
a pure heart,
renew my spirit,
steadfastly.
Restore to me the joy,
of Your salvation,
and victory,
Grant me a willing spirit,
oh God,
to sustain me.

Desire Of The Flesh (based on Romans 7:15-20)

The desire I have,
is to do right,
but I struggle with,
an internal fight,
for I do those very,
things I hate,
guilt presses in,
like a heavy weight,
but if I've been renewed,
and born again,
it's not my spirit,
but my flesh that sins.

This Land



This land has mountains. This land has streams. This land has beautiful majestic scenes. This land’s God given, For us to attend. To grow and to harvest, To heal and to mend. This land’s the place where we’ve been born. This land will be here after we’re mourned. This land is made, to grow new life. This land may reject us, but it will survive. This land was in place, Before we were here. This land will be here, When we disappear. This land is our brother, This land is our home. We work together. We’re not alone. This land This land was made for you and me.
