She Stares in Wonder

She stares in wonder
And smiles at the rain
As it gently
Pitter-patters
On the window pane
Not yet two
Still young at heart
May she always keep
That joyful spark
To see the world
As Your work of art

Prayer, Rhyme

Like a Miracle

May He speak the words
That none could say
And touch your heart
Like a miracle
Today

Wrapping you closer
Than anyone could
And healing your soul
Like you’ve dreamed
He would

May you find rest
In His embrace
Filled with joy
Righteousness & grace
May you dwell 
In His House
For all your days

Story of a Girl

A little girl
Grew up one day
And through the years
Forgot to pray

It seemed so simple
How much did it change?
When God already
Had it all arranged?

Her heart drifted down
Wide paths that were new
And how quickly the past
Slipped from her view
She began to wonder
Is His love still true?
Was there hope for her
Though hope was not due?

She longed for her
Innocent
Childlike
Faith
When she knew God 
And she knew
She was safe

She closed her eyes
Could she still pray?
Would He listen to her
After she’d run away?

So many sins
Her heart did bear
And yet she knew 
That God still cared
Surely He was still out there

She whispered
Her prayer
Into the breeze
And hoped
It would drift
Higher than the trees

She closed her eyes
And gently breathed
The fresh air of early spring
She heard a bird 
Begin to sing
And the laughter of children
In the distance ring

The years began to come undone
Every sin she’d committed
Overcome
By the precious blood
Of Her Savior’s love
Born again
From above

She felt what she hadn’t 
Felt in years
God’s presence once again drew near
And washed away
Her guilt and fear
The future looked so bright and clear
Much the like the childhood
She held so dear

Yet life could not be the same
The lessons she learned
Had shaped her faith
She knew
The depth
The height
And length
The love of God
None can equate

She found His endless
Gift of grace 

A little girl
Came home to stay
And here her story
Will grow each day
As she bows her head
And humbly prays

Dear God
I’m Your
Little girl
Always

Tomorrow

Cherish today
You won’t have it
Tomorrow
Life will keep changing
As you learn to follow
The One who creates
Every time and season
In His perfect plan
He has a reason
No need to question
Just look ahead
And He will give you
Your daily bread
He rains his blessings
From above
Unconditional
Abundant
Love

A Poem & A Party

Thankfulness
Is sunshine
In my rain
Peace of heart
When there is pain
It builds a home
When I’m afraid
A place where nothing
Can shake my faith
It’s a smile
That lifts
My weary soul
A friend I’ll have
Even when I’m old
It’s always free
Can’t be taken 
From me
A thankful heart
Is a treasure
To keep
And a gift
To give

Whoever I meet

P.S. You can come join the “What Are You Thankful For?” Link-up Party on my personal blog hosted by Radical Femininity.

This I Know

There is uncertainty
A question
An unknown
Looming in the distance
Testing my faith

There is a doubt
Whispering lies in my ear
A fear stabbing my heart

But greater than the questions
Fears and doubts
Greater than the struggle
Of heart and mind and soul

This I know

I love my Maker
And my Maker loves me
He calls me His child
I am free
