One, All Along

Make Us As I Am

Heart’s Cry

Is there God

God! Is there a Father

Are you what I imagine

Could you be different than our stories

We live, we die

Where do we connect

We imagine, we build, we destroy

Can we distinguish our own realities

Life, creation, being in motion

Circles of relationships connected, disconnected

The space between explosive potential

Can bonds be restored once exploited

You Have

You Have

You have made me as the Wind
And the Wind cannot be contained
It blows as it wills
And where it goes
The distance we do not know

You have made me as the Water
And the Water cannot be explained
It flows as it wills
And where it abides
The depths we do not know

You have made me as the Light
And the Light cannot be hidden
It shows as it wills
And where it reaches
The breadth we do not know

You have made me as the Life
And the Life cannot be quenched
It glows as it wills
And where it heals
The length we do not know

BECAUSE

BECAUSE

Do you see me
Do you see me

Because I am there

In the darkest places
In the deepest despair

I am there

Did you stop looking
Did you give up all hope

Because I am there

In the darkest places
In the deepest despair

I am there

Will you look up
Will you hope again

Because I am here

In the darkest places
In your deepest despair

I am here

You see me
You see me

Because I am here

 

Awe and Doubt

Smoky Mountain Sunrise (C) Barry Spruce Photography

Doubts
Meander through your mind
Looking for a resting place
Gazing at empty spaces
Where thoughts have not solidified

Awe
Thunders through you being
Finding a dwelling place
Overwhelming hidden spaces
Where emotions have been disposed

Awful doubt
Doubtful awe
Thoughts and emotions collide

Freedom of Love

You are defined by my love.
You asked, and I gave.
I gave, and you received.
You received, and I increased.
I increased, and you rejoiced in my abundance.
 
As you rejoice in new found freedom, I strengthen you to move forward into more. Freedom requires strength. Law does not. The fallen mindset hearkens back to the fruit it ate and falls so easily into the lie of self-sustenance. But you my child I strengthen to walk in the freedom of my love, my joy, my kingdom, my provision. You were born again in Christ to receive an inheritance that I prepared for my children. Receive it like a child.
