There


There,
The Tangled Place.
we find Gods Grace,
to be.

Imperfect
Flawed
Unknowing yet seeking
Something more than this.

Towards a crisis.
In a crisis.
Leaving crisis.
Turmoil
This life…..

There,
The Weary Place,
we find Gods Grace,
to be.

Expectations.
Limitations.
Wants and greed’s
Purpose, needs,
left empty.

On our knees
Praying please,
‘ Lord hear me.’

and There,
The Broken Place,
we find Gods Grace,
To be.

Matthew 11: 28,
‘Come unto me, all ye that labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.’

Stained Glass



Shards of broken glass, and more.
Littering
a concrete floor.
Every color.
Every shade.
Every shape of shattered made.

So cold, so dull and dirty
yet,
so much more,
lest we forget.

The Artist has a bigger view.
The brokenness of me and you.
Files the edges,
one by one.
Holds them up to catch the sun.
Piece by piece with Love and Sear.
Ever precious.
Ever dear.

Gentle rebirth of the soul.
A thousand shards to make us whole.
A lifetimes crafting to get right.
Lifted High to catch the Light.
To Shine with every wonder known,
when all the pieces find their Home.

One Wish


If I could have one wish for you,
it would be for you
to know God too.
Feel His Love
the way I do.
Yes,
That would be my wish for you.

To know that nothing here on earth
has Greater Value, Greater Worth,
than knowing Christ,
for that is Mirth.

All that glitters
is not Gold.
There is such wonder
to behold,
In Christ.
In Love.
In life.
In Him.
But all the rest will age.
Grow dim.

All the emptiness you feel.
All the hurt that needs to heal.
All the fear, and all the pain.
Would fade, as you are born again.

A work in progress by His Hands.
A role to play in Gods own Plan.
A purpose and a heart so filled,
it cannot help but overspill.

If I could have one wish for you
It would be for you
to know God too.
Feel His Love
the way I do.
Yes,
That would be my wish for you.

I Know In My Heart

I know
 in my heart
You make all things new.
I know in my heart
You are with me.
I know in my heart
there’s a reason for all.
I know in my heart.
You forgive me.

I know in my heart.
there is much more still yet.
I know in my heart
You can see.
All of the pieces,
we hide from the world.
Every small fragment
of me.

I know in my heart.
You love how I try.
I know in my heart.
You know best.
I know in my heart.
There’s a plan for my life.
I know in my heart,
I am blessed.
