Praise

Praise
Comes alive
Deep inside of me
Pulling me
Deeper
Into a realization 
Of who You are
The Artist of creation
The melody of life
My rhythm & rhyme
Is empty
Without You
My greatest dreams
Are all loss
Without You
My deepest longings
Are found
In You
No words
Can explain
Who You are to me
No way to show my love
Without 
Complete 
Surrender
Walking beside You
Living by Your Word
Led by Your Spirit
But I’m so frail
And human
Desperately
Needing You
More

Every hour
Every day
Come be my light
And saving grace
I want
To bring You
Praise

One Day

I don’t have the reasons why
I don’t have the answers
For all these questions inside
But this I know
I’m never alone
One day
He’s coming back
To bring me home
One day 
I’ll know
The reasons why
He’ll give me the answer
To every question inside 
When at last
In His presence
I’m alive
Then

“My faith shall be my eyes”

When…

When you hug
Someone goodbye
For the last time
All the memories
Flood your heart
And fall freely
As the tears
Down your face
When you say
“I love you”
And let them go
And trust them
In the hands of the Father
When you know
The hope of tomorrow
That one day
On a brighter day
In a better place
You’ll meet again
When you realize
That death is just
A part of life
A new beginning
A soul that rises
From the grave
When you realize that
Our stories
Are being written
Each day
By our decisions
How we live
Who we love
Where we go
When you realize
That each of us
Has a
Precious
Unknown
Moment in time
When we’ll meet
Eternity
When we’ll leave
This world behind
When we’ll see Yeshua
Face to face
And if we know Him
He’ll accept us
Into His embrace
When you realize
The meaning of life
And your heart
Can’t contain it
And your mind
Can’t explain it
When you know
You are human
And He is God
When you know
You are broken
And He is whole
When you realize
You are nothing
Without Him
Completely dependent
Upon him
For every breath
Every day
Every hour
When you know
You’re alive
To make a difference
To change the world
To live for God
And die for God
And live again
With God
Eternally
When you feel
So small
In this picture
So big
When you fall
To your knees
In worship
And lift up
Your hands
In praise
When you face
The darkness
And see the light
When you say goodbye
And your joy
Is still bright
When you let go
Of one you love
When you realize
Why you’re alive
