Unexpected

A quick lament for distance felt
A quiet prayer for Presence

The Wind is blowing where it wills
none can know its’ way.

Spontaneous Combustion
Sparking faith to meet the Spirit.
Heart ablaze with Love’s sweet kiss.

How Amazing
Unexpected.

The Sound of Joy

World
apart.
Scattered
lives.
Broken
loves.
Haunting
pain –
Despair.

Above, Beyond, Within.
The Hands of God
Caress my soul.

Flowing love
floods my being,
bubbling up
a peaceful stream –
The Fountain of Life.

Glowing Light Within
Rising to my throat
I sing.

The Sound of Joy.

My heart is burdened

My heart is burdened.

I know Your love, Your grace, Your patience, Your kindness, Your mercy…

I see all these people around me, so few of them know You, and even those who do seem to be getting themselves into strange places that put their relationship with You in danger.

I find it so hard to judge, but also so easy. But the easiness always gives way to distress and doubt and struggle.

How can so few be chosen, how can Your love not reach them, especially those who carry your name and share Your love with others…I’m confused!
