Shifted

Down, low My head would hang So far beneath Christ’s intent Even lower I’d clang Wondering where all my time was spent Bottled in confusion Nestled in care It was all an allusion How I despised the despair But now I’m aware That even when I was down and low There was no place where…

The Other Side Praise

“Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me.” Psalms 23:4 Imagine on your spiritual journey approaching a tunnel that appears to be the most dreadful experience known to man. What’s the first thing…

Afraid of Heights

Tempted to run Nowhere to hide From my destiny So much fear inside Life was miserable But I stayed on the ride Afraid to fail so I never tried To walk in greatness So much on my mind I’ll give it to the Savior And step to the side Changing behavior As I change gears…

Get Lost, Get Empty

Casualties of war. The carcasses of saints either ineffective in ministry or absent altogether linger about. We must stand guard and pray or become one in that number. Our prayers go out for the Lord to do restorative work in those brothers and sisters. God will use prophets, and messengers to warn us of the…

Conquering Self

Tempted to give in to my demons Reminders abound that this is the reason For the heartache and pain, unending storms Catering to my flesh has always been the norm Seeking validation, and victory rarely investigating Moving about in haste, no wonder the Lord has me waiting Silence, I cry out to the voice in…
