I remember memories that replay yesterday and wonder why

I remember memories that sway back and forth today and sigh

I remember memories that delay like deja vu arrayed in the future reapplied

I remember memories of mistakes and failures made causing pain I’d rather hide

I remember memories held at bay I’d rather not say went awry

I remember memories once afraid no longer make me prey in the night

I remember memories laid bare so much stronger that I pray won’t be how I die

I remember memories of hell’s visit down the broadway with sin’s choice for entrance prefaced I’d preferably decide to contrive and be deprived

I remember memories like shade in the hottest summer to evade under a tree think twice about while I reside with the littlest faith arise

I remember memories where I strayed until found by the ONE I betrayed now unto will abide with hope to enter HIS arms in Heaven arrive

I remember memories of fear weighed heavily upon this casualty of war that love conveyed in order for it to disappear and heal me inside

I remember memories that slay my pride to display the humility I now allow to guide

I remember memories that give way to HIS grace now to follow as I soar above the storm on the heights by HIS Spirit not by might

I remember memories that trade my punishment with HIS mercy instead that covers me always new every morning to find supplied as I remain contrite

I remember memories that pervade of HIS compassion embraced that erased the oppression and loneliness while it trained me to comfort others with a depth of understanding comprised

I remember memories where HIS truth sustained and prayers uplifted with thanks maintained a peace that surpassed all understanding guarding my heart and mind in JESUS Christ

I remember memories spent alone with HIM that I can now say will remain as I’ve been taught HIS Word to obey where I’ve been tried as gold refined, where I’ve been aligned to HIS will defined, and where I’ve dined with HIM to always remind me I’m HIS and HE is mine for all time…

There’s a black cloud arising

Over the horizon impending

Doom

There’s a black cloud closer

Gathers stronger blocking

Moon

There’s a black cloud above

Threatens fear succumbing 

Swoon

There’s a black cloud encompassing

Overtaken by darkness blinding

Tomb

There’s a black cloud reminding

Of tornadic mind in thunder and lightning

Strewn 

There’s a still small voice spoken elevating

That stills the storm within making

Room

There’s peace once again releasing

For faith, hope, and love remaining

Hewn

There’s a rainbow proved faithful in the forefront

Where clouds have moved beyond the storm front

Boon

There’s a day HE’s coming on the clouds again

A trumpet blare humming clear and loud to rend

Attuned

Catch wind

Catch fire

Catch the passion

Of all HE desires

Before being caught up in the clouds to meet HIM in the air…

Soon

What to think for starters

Live life like martyrs

At first it may seem harder

So let GOD part the water farther

Walk on across fears border

Until you reach HIM as the rewarder

Then offer self daily

Faith driven embracing

Hope given for lives raising

Give love unfailing

Begin the trail blazing

Find HIS grace amazing

Discover purpose to die for

With service apply toward

Eyes with vision more

Mind with wisdom implore

Heart with mission adore

Soul with decisions restore

Spirit with precision soar

Each day mercy is new

So a start over is true

Every storm pass through

More thankful for skies blue

Look to realize how you grew

Love one another as HIS disciple prove

May die many deaths

Take in and out plenty breaths

Forgiven East to West

Looking Heavenward is best

Choose purity to be blessed

Faith filled to pass each test

Come to HIM in need of rest

Rely on HIM when stressed

Failures when fallen confessed

Cleansed from all unrighteousness

Become more when become less

Into the Great Commission invest

Join the few to welcome in the harvest

Faith will find a way

Find a way to hold on

Walk In the race until agree to run

Tend to while fighting the good fight

Hope will find a way

Find a way to carry on

To taste and see what HE has won

Send igniting into the night within the Light

Love will find a way

Find a way to overcome

To embrace and receive the SON

When delighting desires become set aright

Grace will find a way

Find a way to soar above

Through every storm have sufficiency enough

Lend Mighty Right Hand uplift for HIS vision in sight

Mercy will find a way

Find a way through push and shove

Cover over, found beneath, until arise a diamond in the rough

Defend as High Priest if broken and contrite

Compassion will find a way

Find a way to lift others up

Fill to overflowing my empty cup

Again and again give what’s needed beyond the fright of any plight

Faith will find the truth

Find the truth that sets free

Set free in the SON indeed

Abide in HIM to grow

Hope will find the truth

Find the truth to hold and keep

Debts paid move forward always believe

Guide into the Light reflect to show

Love will find the truth

Find the truth to just be 

Let it enter in daily to receive

Subside the fears, until cast aside, for love to forever know

Grace will find the truth

Find the truth to speak

Fret not to take a stand against the enemy

Decide to be in HIS will with seed for the sower to sow

Mercy will find the truth

Find the truth to grieve

Get back up no longer deceived

Hide under shelter of HIS wings until an arrow in HIS bow

Compassion will find the truth

Find the truth for others reach

Forget not where you came from with their pain conceive

Arrive on the scene to resuscitate no matter the injury or how far they’ve fallen below

Faith will find the life

Find the life few will find, even so, choose to breathe

Leapt to discover what only HE can do with me

Tried as gold refined by fire seven times aglow

Hope will find the life

Find the life with desires come to fruition when unto HIM heed

Secrets of HIS Heavenly wisdom enter in to succeed

Ride on the heights to newly dream to where HE leads go

Love will find the life

Find the life to do the same sincerely

Kept in HIS grips equipped meek and holy

Wide, long, high, and deep is this love of Christ that overflows

Grace will find the life

Extending to reach any in need with HIS wings beneath

Regrets left behind press on for Heavenward’s prize to seek

Died to sin made alive in Christ to walk the straight and narrow

Mercy will find the life

Find the life I don’t deserve because HE heard my pleas

Outlet for others to come to know HIM from their chains be released

Beside HIM open to be who I’m meant to be pure as white snow

Compassion will find the life

Find the life to become compassion perceived to those in need

Interprets what to pray and then stretch out hand for healing to relieve

Confide in HIM here and now into eternity ever ready to understand however many tomorrows bestow

Lift up your eyes

See the same skies

Yet so far we seem

Hopeful prayer bring

For truths quest, for a new dream

 

Sun escapes darkness

Daybreaks east to west

Yet so do we until overcoming

Open soul’s plea

For inner zest, for sweet release

 

Stars are serene

Moon scars seen

So are we hidden or noticing

Crater within to flee

For quiet rest, for eternal peace

 

Under cloud cover

Storms or shadows hover

Yet still we breathe

Break through into light until free

For love’s conquest, for fears to cease

 

Enter center of mind’s eye

Asking mysteries why

Yet we will believe

Have grace and mercy to receive

For life’s test, for faith that reprieves

 

Enter center of heart’s cry

Awaiting hope will try… despite times that subside or die

Yet we resurrect to still conceive

While in the LORD delighting

For less stress, for strength to increase

 

Enter center of Spirit willing to soar on high

Walk the extra mile self deny, with others uplift who’d rather die

Yet we will encourage and intercede from underneath

Finding Refuge in hiding or when in our own battles fighting; remember HIS blood cerise

For respecting creation bless, for caprice of helping each one as HIS masterpiece

I wish I had faith

like you to believe

How do you receive

what is hard to conceive

You’re close, near to what you say

I sense your wonder

You’re aware out there is thunder

You can’t see, but hear echoing asunder

 

Faith comes by hearing

Into your mind at the start

HIS Word nearing your heart

For your soul salvation impart

Storm is the metaphor you can’t ignore

Lightning seen is HIS appearing and dying; the love that is true

Rain is your crying as HIS blood and water fall; worth buying all that is you

Clouds are the darkness that enshrouds your understanding of sin and shame lying to disprove

Clear skies are what finds you out of hiding into HIS forgiveness providing a breakthrough

Rainbow is HIS life arisen over arching your own to give hope and a future making all things new

 

Storms of life get in the way

Where will you go for a light to retrieve?

How will you cope when the dark tries to deceive?

Who will you turn to when you have to grieve?

 

JESUS is close, near when you pray

HE senses what you’re heavy under

HE is aware of heartache when you blunder

HE sees to defend from the enemy’s plunder

 

JESUS is the calm of your storm always

Today is the day of your salvation, so finally believe

As a little child trusting, choose to receive

It’s okay, do not fear, HE gives more than you can conceive

 

You’re close, draw near and HE will draw nearer than what you say

 

All in wonder as you wonder of HIS wonder

HE speaks in the quiet and the thunder

Angels rejoice in echoing asunder
