Poetry

I’m an occasional writer of poetry. I will be posting my poems here when I write them. I’ve got a bunch from the past that I’m typing up little by little to add to the page. Some I eventually arrange into music, some stay poems. All are Spirit-breathed. Enjoy!

 

Searching

I’m searching for You, Lord.I walk down empty streets.I look through darkened windows.I follow paths so beat. There’s no one there to tell them. There’s no one there to teach. There’s no one there to separate The worthless chaff from wheat. I know, my God, You see them Warming wooden pews. Waiting for someone else… Continue reading Searching

To Whom it May Concern

I was reading through some of my poetry and came across this gem. It was written for my future husband, at that time. (You were more than worth the wait, Babe.) I can’t believe this was 20 years ago! As I gaze at the future before me I wonder,Will it be you to wrench my… Continue reading To Whom it May Concern

Fear Not

Fear not—just ask; He is your Father. Within His grasp all things are gathered. Ask and expect to receive all things. Dwell in His rest, have faith—believe! Be not discouraged, He knew your need Before you cast your care at His feet. He who seeks will find his desire. Continue to seek ’til your over… Continue reading Fear Not

And whatever life brings,Our Father can see everything.He will guide us through the night,Carry us through in strength and might. No matter what you do,Our God’s love, it needs no proof.We’ll trust… Continue reading Bonds and Cords

Signs

I thought I heard Your voice in the thunder. I listened for You While the sky loudly pounded. My eyes searched the heavens For a mystical door. I sought only signs A child would look for. I tried to create You Wherever I went. I watched and I waited For the slightest of hints. I… Continue reading Signs

One Step Back

I had a thought last Sunday. I was thinking of loved ones far away from the Lord at the moment. I thought about how many years they have run and how far from what they know to be true they have strayed. But then a thought struck me. It doesn’t matter how far they have… Continue reading One Step Back

All You Are

Let all that You are Be all that I am. Renew my heart, Help me to stand. Lord, let Your heart Beat strong in my chest. Set me apart. Come in, be my guest. Shine Your marvelous light On this barren land. Cradle my life In the palm of Your hand. Stir up in me… Continue reading All You Are

Consume Me

I desire to draw close to You Every day that I’m alive. To climb into Your loving arms And let my spirit thrive. To be more a part of You Than I’ve ever been before. That every single part of me Is You right to the core. For my will to submit to Yours, Your… Continue reading Consume Me

On a night, crystal clear Many centuries ago Our Savior on this earth appeared Our sins to overthrow. Deliverance and mercy great He carried in His hands.
