More Than I


I see candles,
in the darkness.
I see rainbows way up high.
I see sunshine through the storm clouds.
I see something more than I.

I feel Loved,
and I feel needed.
I feel full of Gods own heart.
I feel blessed beyond all measure.
Just to be, and play my part.

I can dance,
and I hear music.
Every minute, every day.
Listen do you hear His Heart Cry?
‘Trust in me’, to make a way.

I see angels,
all around me.
Not in church, or in the sky.
Hands held out to help another
This is God, and this is why.

I see candles,
in the darkness.
I see rainbows way up high.
I see sunshine through the storm clouds.
I see something more than I.

Thorned


Lord could you hold me, just for a while.
So overwhelmed,
So hard to smile.
So hard to stand.
So hard to be.
All of the things that this life needs of me.

Lord could you touch me, deep in my soul.
Help me to be.
Just to stay whole.
So full of fears,
spilling only to You.
Strengthen my heart,
My Faith Lord,
In You.

and Lord,
Could You be there,
for all feeling pain.
Help them to heal,
Feel worthy again.
Help them to shine,
for we all have Your Light.
Only waiting to burn,
by Your Grace,
by Your Might.

But just for tonight, could You hold me awhile.
Reach into my heart, with all reason to smile.
Comfort my Soul, be my Rock, Staff, and Shield.
Empower my Spirit, that I too am healed.

AfterAll


After all that I have done.
The battles fought, and lost and won.
Who could love me Lord as You?
Scarred ,imperfect,
through and through.

And after all that I have lived,
who but You could quite forgive.
Mistakes, heartbreaks, and pouring shame.
Arms outstretched to catch the rain.

And after all the hurt and pain
Are we ever whole again?
Can I ever rise to be,
all that You can see in me.

I wonder Lord, and wait on You.
Lead my heart in all I do.
Lead my hands to serve in Love.
Every good thing from above.
Every blessing Lord to see.
So much more than simply me.
