Words that sustain

I often reached for bemoan

Through all the times I’d fade

Empty it seemed except skin and bone

Left to fear life and face death more afraid

Sleepless in the middle of the nights groan

Faith, hope, and love seemed lost with no protective shade

I’ve sown sin to lose oppressed

Beyond what reaped dismay

Purpose and vision wept

Death just to deflate

Felt a living hell would overthrow

Survive with my will pleading for HIS mercy, grace, and compassion to mend

 

Words I say

Not my own alone

Try as I may with faith

In HIS Words of life again sown

Will somehow portray

New life grown

To gain one day

I’ve shown with proof refreshed

Beyond what can betray

Purpose and vision dreamt 

Death has to wait

For when HE says it so 

Alive until then

 

Not just empty words array

To build a wall of stone

Lay bare in open air to catch SON’s ray

Of hope that will atone

Not to take away

The pain you’ve known

Suicidal thoughts try to sway

I’ve known this too attest

Beyond nightmares into stray

Purpose and vision leapt

Death can’t equate 

To the reward to come when overcome to overflow

Arrive to fulfill in Heaven

 

Words inspired from above convey

To build up lives broken down hone

In until find the Light I try and persuade

You to continue to fight in the zone

Of proximity ignite into HIS love upgrade

Will stand upright once again blown

Away that you made it this far evade

I’ve grown convinced drew breath

Beyond what I ask or imagine obey

Purpose and vision kept

Death I can relate

To now meant to be when letting go

Of the world’s hold that would decay

Thrive to instill faith, hope, and love befriend

Mistakes that I had made

Low self-esteem, empty, ashamed

No identity yet, solo, afraid

High school, one date came, I’m to blame

Still recognize her face and remember her name

Monday came; she stood there waiting, locked gaze in suspended time, then walked away because I couldn’t respond as if in a daze

I pray she knows HIS love all her days…

~

Mistakes I dare to share

Open up not sure she’d even care

Return the favor listening, revealing all unaware

College, first relationship, burdens to bear

Found solace for a short time so rare

She had to leave across the sea and I let go too scared

I pray she finds HIM suddenly out of no where

~

Mistakes I regret

Awkward, unsure, how to interpret

Searching for identity unkept

College, second relationship, just met

A whirlwind transpires;  I easily make her upset

She gave it one last chance;  I hurt her heart and can’t forget

I pray she experiences HIS joy each day on reset

~

Mistakes of getting too close without commitment

Except our faith in GOD, we’d abstain from being intimate

Taking a chance after my suicide attempt and mental illness onset

Singles group in church, third relationship, her a divorcee with a daughter, could we reinvent

GOD would make it clear we weren’t meant to be in marriage represent

She was saddened, but moved on to start her own family circumvent

I pray she always has HIS encouragement and a love for HIM that’s fervent

~

Through all my mistakes I came to find HIM anew

My refocus in relationship with HIM intertwined with her and grew

Drawn together as we served HIS children in love’s purpose pure and true

Times well spent with each other set in motion HIS will to pursue

It is evident we were meant to be a family within HIS faith, hope, and love through and through

She has fought to win battles with the enemy as revealed by scars and wounds

She has fought to win battles for me in the midst of my darkest hours now removed

She has fought to win battles for herself of declined health faithful to be there for our children proved

I pray she feels HIS love through me continually, reveals HIS love through our children repeatedly, conceals within HIS love fully to share assuredly, and kneels with me in awe of what the LORD has done mercifully in Heaven one day and then walk together as best friends for all eternity…

A world turn to ice

Rotation seems to stop -test

The roll of the dice

 

Grow up to release stress

Resistance to change

Succumb to nevertheless

 

Desire to be someone

Lost in the night from days depressed

Fade with disappearance of the sun

 

Where becomes the focus more or less

Inward view at darkness strange

Hell on earth felt with mental illness

 

Battle is in my mind

Life or death hangs in the balance hard pressed

Can’t help but look for a sign

 

Negative thoughts overtake intense

Fear and doubt narrows outlooks range

Future dread, past enchains, present in suspense

 

Let go self care

Minimalizing nourishment starving inside as my guest

Brain eating itself deceiving now aware

 

Cold heart mourn trespassed east to west

Soul torn in unrest

Frozen spirit forlorn tests distressed

Mind stuck on warning/warning/warning/warn?!. digress

Perfect storm enters inside to derange

Panic stricken hidden within head’s walls torments

 

Suicide has access

How come I acquiesce

Open the door, crossed the line oppressed

 

Suicidal hours pass suppress

Relentless until possess -success?!.

Drown out voices in excess

 

No such attempt a success…

Come up for air with will still to live reassess

Arise soaken wet convalesce

 

Hitch a ride back to civilization egress

At a loss that death somehow did outguess finality this time, how to process?

Did I go too far with the way I transgress?

 

Parents sullen expression hopeless -turn their back and walk away

My only hope is Heaven above to hear my cries to HIM confess

Scared the enemy stalks in this darkness; hearing breaths closing in for attack as I pray

 

In time JESUS answers to rescue, restore, redeem to repossess

Relationship with the LORD reestablished over the years with interchange

Taken back into the sheepfold to learn trust has been an ongoing process

 

All HE did for me I can’t express fully in my writings or with my spoken words, but I try

Yet, JESUS, is HIS precious name I will forever profess

Since HE has heard my wavering cries, I will walk with HIM no longer to deny for faith, hope, and love now unto others apply…

 

Frozen ice melts with the SON press on Heavenward progress

Saves lives, softens hearts, sanctifies minds, sets spirits free in wondrous and beautiful exchange

Casts out fear with perfect love HE has won to bless…

  

More than you can see…

More than you can know…

 

Can’t see how great my passion freeing fans the flame deep inside will roar

Can’t know the fate HIS fashioning hands within leap to die still for

Can’t see how great my delight stands in awe of HIM for desires of my heart come true

Can’t know the rate Thy Light commands within HIS call into my heartbeats afire find life impart anew

 

Can’t see how great my soul was pinned -attacked again and again; brought out of death’s pit HE saved from tragedy to walk by faith in the land of the living

Can’t know the state my mind was in back then when enemy did apprehend; fought bout almost quit HE gave grace and mercy to talk as I stand of HIS forgiving

 

Can’t see how my spirit almost fatally wounded HE healed deep within to hold and keep alit that I might shine until stronger for HIM alone of love shone in compassion hone to tell of HIS good deeds

Can’t know the brokenness of hopelessness my life once felt seep out my every pore to weep remit when contrite align to HIS will no longer dimly known not my own of HIS Word sown to go where HE leads

 

Yet we live on…

until the devil meets his match that GOD our FATHER strikes its end… set aflame, far from us expulsion disbanded -no longer with fiery darts targeting at our hearts aim

our faith he can’t catch; crush his head then fallen into lake of fire send… let tame his evil compulsion stranded -no longer with tiring accusations marketing at our minds blame

Because we live on and on…

set free he can’t snatch; secure in the Savior’s care and the FATHER’s strongest hands tend… debt/shame gone as peace and grace rush in granted -no longer with firing arrows darkening to our souls maim

beyond the grave deep within is Heaven attached; await a future hope prepared above where we fully mend… met mercy anew every morning propulsion open handed -made stronger desiring eternity harkening to our spirits claim

So we will live on and on and on…

 

 

I remember not long ago needing slack for You to bring me back…

Jagged ledges can’t climb around or reach above -stuck then

Ragged pledges won’t climb down to beseech below -shun again

I remember further back; despairing attacks becoming a paranoiac and an insomniac…

Staggering of past avalanches brought me into a rut left with nil that chides downhill to my lowest point donned -found weak and stunned to barely cope

Lagging with present damages caught up with me yet will I rise until… do so slowest to join fond crown peak -need to overrun to see hope

I remember just awhile back what I lacked

Aggravating “what if” future ravages wrought; confront to perceive Who still guides and will grow through knowest truths choice beyond abounds -seek the SON set free elope

Agonizing daily challenges sought, want apprise to their shrill cries, fulfill overflow to showest proofs voice of love surrounds unique among -let receive lifelines rope

Adores HIS goal unfold to mold me; fought through the strife

 

I remember You going the extra mile to…

Carry me over rugged mountain too high as fears cease

Care for me into the valley of joy to find Your peace

I remember being with You while I accrued breakthroughs…

Riding in truth during amends to talk with You confide as anxieties decrease

Abiding in You on the journey then to walk with you beside as trust does increase

I remember You leading me out of denial anew…

Along the streams edge refreshing purity in me define

Upon green pastures privilege meshing; resting in Thee divine

Restores my soul whole to behold Thee; brought into new life in sweet release

I will always remember how You reconciled in being faithful and true…

I remember to forever thank You for the rescue!!!…

 

 

Here for a reason

Why I carry on so

For a season

How long I don’t know

 

Listen to reminder

Never alone in the throes

Be kinder along the way as a pathfinder

Mercy to give others among their woes

 

Meant to remember

Compassion to show

Ignite the ember

Eager to grow

 

Be responsible

Despite the toll of pains blow

Overcome every obstacle

He died to give you new life for HIS renown owe

 

Goal to reconcile

Uplift the low

Reach out to those in denial

Faith seeds to sow

 

Make recompense

With love overflow

Stand in defense

Voice on behalf of the orphans, the weak, and the poor bestow

 

Life purpose reconsider

Envision where to go

For the little children never hinder unto HIS arms open wide come hither

Justice to prevail against all evil derail until fears overthrow

 

Choose to rescue

Those fallen below

Leave the many for the few

Willing to walk through the valley of death’s shadow

 

Faith, hope, and love remain

To refill, refresh, replenish, and restore the hollow

Greatest of these is love to sustain

Receive from Heaven’s open window until reach it’s door open to enter the afterglow

Image result for heaven and hell

Fallen deep pit

Hidden pitch black

Walled in steep outwit

Forbidden niche lack

All alone sit

Sudden despair attack

On my own unfit

Backslidden rebellion retract

Mood swings low until hollow only the negativity transmit

Suicidal thoughts screams overthrow into mind hack

Guilt and shame drown with an attempt as reality hit

Stunned in shock with voice stolen by enemy flak

Fear overwhelmed almost overtaken by demons as I waited in transit

Overcome was my soul out of whack

Hell made real stuck between good vs. evil with personality split

 

Sullen weep uplift

Freedom bring back

Called within;  keep lit

Seventy x seven forgiven;  does it make up the slack

Failure of wrongs confess to HIM admit

Open door of hope impact

A 3 chord strand of rope equipped

Burden of apprehension weigh upon unpack

Light of love shone won’t quit

Broken and contrite as a matter of fact

Healing the rift between my heart, soul, and spirit

Kingdom care steer on track

Given a sound mind again as I renew it

Heaven’s destination remind where treasures stack with compassions destiny mine to be exact

Faith to live on now the pre-requisite

 

 

 

 

 

Special someone overseas discovery

Seems so far away in reality

Sincerely settling within compassion near as can be

Searching soul opens up beautifully with pleasantries

Seeking samplings stranded in madness found in the midst of sadness revealing secrets in poetry once hidden merely

Sensations seen of scars unseen into scenes of teardrops bleeding bladed entries

Sighting suicidal thoughts deceiving tendencies

Sweet sierras needing relieving simplicities

Sorrowful screaming voices pleading beyond ones of fatality and fallacies

Salvation’s streaming Light rebirthing into faith, hope, and courage leading from Heaven’s treasuries

Sending soothing second chances fulfilling new found love, grace, and mercies interceding advocacy

Sanctifying stance to persevere past fear superseding in a war of casualties

Strength’s Source will endure to the end… tour of duty heeding toward truths amnesty

Surmounting Spirit-led rise above… disguise not love… cheerfully greeting one another miraculously entreating healing eternally to live on unimaginably

I found this song after I wrote the poem below:

 

Just a passerby

Had I known why

You cry in the night

A pause in my day light

I’d stand beside

Walk with you in the fight

Lead you to hold HIS hand tight

Healing to be found despite the fright

 

Just a passerby

Had I any insight

You stuck in wrongs plight

A pause for prayer to make right

I’d help you understand forgiveness as snow pure white

Standing to intercede with High Priest from Heaven’s height

Lead you to find freedom inside

Healing to be found no longer to hide

 

Just a passerby

Had no one took the time for me nearby

I was unable to fly away into open sky

A pause finds depression stuck in negative thoughts gone awry

You’d have said or thought there’s no hope if I’d confide

Crawling toward silence in my demise wandering into darkness of suicide

Lead me to remember in whom I can confide

Healing to be found where my haunting fears subside

 

Just a passerby

Had You given up on me?  All Your help deny??

I called on You in faith lost and alone despite

A pause with broken spirit heart contrite

You’d answer my prayer to rescue and not despise

Carrying me upon Your shoulder home after finding me leaving ninety-nine

Lead me to safe green pasture… in You I begin to delight

Healing to be found restoring my soul into new life until my spirit reignite no longer on my own left behind to die

 

Traumatic miscues

Almost lost it all

Throes toward tragedy, sieves sin’s broken agony

Close to death’s final blow

Enemy heavy breathing in my scent

Ready to kill, steal, destroy

Scared

Stranded in plenty offshore fears

Sinking into deep pit; grope around… will imprisoned

Dramatic rescues

Utmost Name I call

Shows amnesty; gives within hope and sanity

Knows loves extra mile to go

Befriending me heaving;  my Defense

Steady to give abundant life, heal, free to enjoy

Spared

Granted many more years

Seeking… HE remit;  3 chord strand of rope found -still listened

Emphatic breakthroughs

Chose to knock down walls

Dose for remedy, lives again open vitality

Boast in the LORD all the while overflow

Lending openly… to any breathing, grieving, leaving with reluctance

Mending to live, yield, see an envoy

Cared

Openhanded compassion toward tears

Blinking…  Keep lit…  faith, hope, and love abound until arisen

22 I have swept away your offenses like a cloud,
    your sins like the morning mist.
Return to me,
    for I have redeemed you.”

Image result for sun rise

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

Image result for moon night sky

 

 

 

 

 

 

Depression locked in night

Faith awakes absent sight

Hope engaging the fright

Love emerging when contrite

Dreams unlock with Light

HIS Spirit within ignite

Walk not by might

Mind links to Heaven’s height

Heart opens to new life

Soul HE restores aright

Spirit free saves from plight

Body beats to join the fight

Compassion helps others be bright

Rescue casualties caught in rewind

For one lost sheep leave ninety nine

Once broken chains no longer tight

Share story left behind

Forward journey go remind

Inward peace HE gives to find

So much lost

Along the way

At great cost

Failed to obey

To and fro tossed

In the wind and waves

An ocean of emotions cannot make it across

Almost drown as hope deflates

Coping defenses exhaust

Fall under the weight

Stranded in spiritual desert embossed

Stuck in drought of depression’s state

Near to an end or life just paused

What if I look up to Heaven for HIS help only await

Will my need for HIS grace enter despite the outward hurt and inward pain caused

Will HIS mercy and compassion allow me to begin again to relate

Will HIS blood applied gloss over my flaws in the hearing of angel’s echoing applause

Will healing balm my wounds to become scars within HIS own where love equates

JESUS, You redeemed my life from the deepest darkest pit…  I would not have known what unfailing love and mercy was had I given up and quit…

So much gained

Along the way

At great cost

Stronger desire to obey

No longer to and fro tossed

Stand on the Rock unafraid of wind and waves

Familiar with an ocean of emotions to understand;  will help others across

A lifeline I have to give so others won’t drown until hope inflates

With hoping continually… with putting full armor of defenses on daily… and with pure true love offering reassuringly… I will put into practice until many are free from the fears and anxieties that exhaust

Fell under;  yet did I rise above to bear their burdens with HIM supporting the weight

Landed in a spiritual oasis embossed

Lifting me out of the pit, I know HE will lift up those stuck also refilling their cup to overflowing out of depression’s state

HE draws near to whoever draws near to HIM even at their end, until they realize life just paused

Will keep and uphold in prayer until they look up to Heaven for HIS help only await

To experience HIS grace too despite the outward hurt and inward pain caused

Generously extended is HIS mercy and compassion restoring souls again to relate

HIS blood applied gloss over anyone and everyone’s flaws, who believe and trust HIM in the hearing of angel’s echoing applause, never leaving us alone… always and forever to be awed…

Healing I’ve received is returning to balm yours and others wounds as well to become scars within HIS own where unfailing love equates…

 

 

 

Withstand growing pains

Forget youthful rebellion, its shames, and disdains

Take hold of good that remains

Forsake wicked thoughts; depart evil -now refrains

Store up treasure in Heaven as eternal gains

 

Withstand the tempest

Endure trials and tests

Any and all sin confessed

Will be forgiven as far as East to West

Come to Him weary and heavy laden finding soul’s rest

 

Withstand the torrential downpour

Join Him in the waves;  recline with Him on the shore

Call to Him for new strength and for your soul to restore

Wait on Him once again for grace to soar

Abide in Him to adore;  live for and with Him forevermore

 

Withstand hardships and sufferings obeying His commands

Choose to love above all throughout life’s demands

Accept His discipline as love that purifies when HE reprimands

Know HIS pure purposes are for a hope and a future in HIS wondrous plans

Faith, hope, and love remain where love is greatest as we’re held together in HIS hands

Suicide apprehend

Drown after harrowing night

Come up for air still alive

 

Tried;  descend

Down faster narrowing light

Sun up ignore glare will deny

 

Pride offend

Aground disaster sorrowing plight

Lock up a floor share hospital awry

 

Wide dead end

Astound last turn loathing fright

One up poor flare shrill cry

 

Died;  part of me then

Around past discern;  knowing insight

SON up toward care refill my…

 

Confide rend

Abound cast concern showing contrite

Hung up before dare;  pill apply

 

Hide defend

Enshroud aghast yearn overflowing ignite

Wrung up, restore, aware, arrive

 

Alive again

Found amassed per arrows zing aflight

Overcome;  run up more declare until HIS Light shines

What insight

Would you have me write

Encouragement for the fight

Grace beneath launch in flight

Above the storms of life contrite

New perspectives seen from greater heights

Out of darkness into Your Light

Willing to dive back down to shine in their darkest night

 

Mercy and compassion to endure with you near

Faith and hope given by You graciously to persevere

Abundant loving kindness found to appear

As Your perfect love pours within casting out fear

Until clouds of doubt and depression bouts clear

Now open for reaching below into the valley of death’s shadow endear

Those whose hope grows thin going it solo reassured that their not alone with the voice of truth to hear

Needing to know the way to go as the Good Shepherd who’ll show the path to freedom and into safe pasture by Your Spirit steer

Though I don’t see You

I’ll trust in whose forever true

I’ll trust each day anew

 

Though I don’t always feel You near

I’ll trust the One who collects our tears

I’ll trust the One whose love casts out the fears

 

Though I don’t know what tomorrow brings or holds

I’ll trust and follow the One whom my soul clings to among Your sheepfolds

I’ll trust and go bold delighting under Your banner of love that over me sings and run after promises foretold however life unfolds

 

Though I don’t always hear Your voice

I’ll trust whose silence still commands me to believe with faiths choice

I’ll trust in HIS Words made alive to rejoice

 

Though I’m often weak and it’s difficult to maintain

I’ll trust and seek Your strength that will sustain

I’ll trust You’ll never leave nor forsake;  faithful in mercy to remain

 

Though I may die sooner or later, prove Your future promise of hopeful remedy and find in You my truest identity, in tragedy or catastrophe, in good or bad weather

I’ll trust in Your love that nothing whatsoever can ever sever;  never

I’ll trust You’ll raise me to life again in the prepared place in Heaven to be together with family and friends unto forever…  until then… will make You known, will let Your love and truth be sown, and will share faith and hope for them to be sure their not alone as my ongoing endeavor…

 

Feelings can only pick you up so much

Feelings that belittle can bring you down

Feelings come and go like coughs and hiccups

Feelings run amok or ebb and flow with undercurrent to drown

Feelings may overthrow until all you are is stuck

Feelings you only know will linger near or far to smile or to frown

Feelings will too soon betray, empty, and never fill your cup

Feelings will fight deep within leaving you wounded on the battleground

 

How will you show resistance to the enemy bent on killing and stealing

How will you get your deep need within for healing

How will you find an ever present help and a strong refuge never leaving from all that harms concealing

How will you be lifted from the pit of darkness that will grip you back into Light revealing

How will you grow in trust without ever kneeling

How will you go on in hope when your whole being is reeling

How will you overflow in faith to cope without the Holy Spirit sealing

How will you sow in love as 3 chord strand of rope appealing

 

JESUS is the only One who upon this Rock will pick you up

JESUS will lift your countenance bringing Heaven down

JESUS is a constant Refuge who never leaves nor forsakes when in a rut

JESUS runs to catch you amongst the waves so as not to fully drown

JESUS lifts you up from the mud and mire or deep pit with HIS mighty righteous right hand no longer to be stuck

JESUS knows you better than yourself so delight in HIM that joy may abound

JESUS, when you continually come to HIM, will eventually refill your cups

JESUS will give you HIS residing peace healing your wounds to run again in the race until in HIS arms you’re found

 

 

I reminisce…

Fight back;  persistence -found to be free

Temptations attack;  resistance -found purity

No slack;  repentance -found mercy

Take flak;  admittance -found family

Have a knack;  HIS assistance -found empathy

Back on track;  insistence -found grace aplenty

Heavy load unpack;  outdistance -found eternity

No more lack;  coexistence -found love fully

 

If it weren’t for the LORD to reminisce…

I would have torn apart;  ripped in pieces -so haunter makes remiss unsound into self-pity

What would be left if my soul deceases -no longer exist sound silenced empty

You rescued me in perfect love so fear ceases -daunter desist sound heart accept privily

You lighten burdens as Your peace increases -stronger to resist sound mind kept reassuringly

You’re the Giver of new life leases -song astir to persist sound spirit leapt freely

From our chains and our prisons You pardon releases -from wrongs turn away with grace assist sound joyfully adept with purpose and vision equipped fittingly

Deep blue sky above

Deep heart true love

Deep sea sin lost

Deep life death cost

Deep earth then arisen

Deep Words so listen

Deep calls to deep

Deep tears will keep

Deep depression lift up

Deep confession fills cup

Deep wounds scars find

Deep connection forever bind

Dreams come true

When I’m with You

Love enters;  taken up in a new song -all is forgiven of wrong

Mercy centers;  awakens with the dawn -all fears within gone

Grace mentors;  forsaken not, unto Your will now drawn -I’ll follow along

 

Dreams come true

Awaiting strength to renew

Love abides;  in fields of green when reeling to lie down in rest

Mercy hides;  shields while healing what would oppress

Grace provides;  wields away enemies when dealing with trials and tests

 

Dreams come true

Delighting in the Truth

Love finds all that your heart desires to be

Mercy reminds all that your mind aspires to see

Grace shines on all that your soul inspires to free

 

New beginnings

Is hope thinning?

Come to HIM

Renew strength within

Fills one’s cup;  overflowing

Lifts one up;  growing

Wise to let HIM mend;  defend

Arise to life again;  befriend

 

New beginnings

Is faith underpinning?

Comes by hearing

Restores soul appearing

Fails not to heal inside reassured

Listens to be a doer of HIS Word

Abides in the SON;  sets free

Guides one’s life and all evil shun;  gets purity

 

New beginnings

Is love winning?

Comes from time with HIM when dining

Replenishes the heart reminding

Finds anew when delighting

Loves HIM and others fulfilling desires igniting

Rides the heights in the Light of day soaring

Decides to enter the shadows of death for salvation’s outpouring

 

New beginnings

Are you lost sinning?

Come as you are

Refreshes your spirit drawn near from afar

Fears, chains, and shame from prison released

Lets love cover over to receive peace

Confides to trust, believe, and receive forgiveness through HIM the open door

Hides under the shelter of HIS wings forevermore

 

New beginnings

Is there disciplining?

Come to know it’s for your good

Registers deep inside to do as you should

Faces the buffering as clay molded by the Potter above

Learns from the suffering obedience from the FATHER of love

Dies to self and selfish ambition no longer a wanderer

Derives character to persevere now stronger and endure as more than a conqueror

On Words You said

Rest in peace my stead

On Rock of Salvation within

Restore my soul again win

On eagle’s wings spread

Rise from the dead

On updrafts of wind

Real life now begin

On faith in action spirit led

Rapture hearts with Your blood shed

On a future and hope journey destine

Rescue with love’s purpose and vision where all fears rescind

On mission to save souls for Heaven pled

Reconciliation ministry of Great Commission into Hope fled cancels hell’s dread

On point to focus my eyes and delight in HIM

Receiving the desires of my heart with windows of Heaven open again and again in love driven

On the Good LORD taste and see of the wine and Bread

Remind that every need is met as I fed day after day and choose trust over fear instead
