The Mountainside

Many have traveled this twisting road
Up the mountainside
Some looked back
Far too soon
Lost the dream
Lost the view
Some persevered
Though the woods grew thick
They learned this lesson
And promise it’s true

Another turn
Or maybe two
And you’ll see
Hope
In front of you

Infinite

If You created the infinite sky
Know each star by name
Measured the oceans
In the palm of Your hand

If mountains can be moved
And cast in the sea
By faith as small
As a mustard seed

If You are as big
As we can’t even dream
Then why in the world
Do I worry?

Homesick

Homesick
For a country
Across the sea
Where the rocks cry out
And the desert blooms
Where the language is living
Though it once was dead
Where history is hidden
Along the highway bends
Where skylines rise
Along the sea
Where Bedouins quietly
Lead their sheep
Where the stones are golden
And the stars sing
The promise of how many
Your people will be

A land so ancient
And yet so new
A land of prophecy
Coming true
How I long to fly
To you

“Little girls with dreams become women with vision”

“I have learned that I cannot change the world. Jesus will do that. I can, however, change the world for one person. So I keep loving one person at a time. Because this is my call as a follower of Jesus.”

Katie Davis

“To fall in love with God is the greatest romance; to seek him the greatest adventure; to find him, the greatest human achievement.”

St. Augistine of Hippo

Here’s another extra, because it’s sweet:

“I am thankful for nights that turned to mornings, friends that turned into family, and dreams that turned into reality.”

Prayer, Rhyme

This Little Heart

This little heart
Held in Your hands
Must surrender
And trust in Your plans
Sometimes it’s so hard
To know what will be
And at times I lose sight
Of Your goodness to me
Though You don’t promise to answer
Every question I have
You do promise to lead me
By Your rod and Your staff
And satisfy my soul
With all I could need
Oh, give me the faith to believe
That You are doing more
Than I could dream
Painting a picture
From heaven’s point of view
That will change the world
And bring glory to You
Oh, remind me that You
Hold the pen in Your hand
Help me to trust in Your plan

Faded Papers

Words typed
Over 50 years ago
On faded papers
Worn by time
Carry me back to
Before I was alive
Show me the heritage
That came before me
The legacy of faith & devotion
The prayers my great-grandma prayed
The testimony that she gave
My heart is touched
By the way she crafts each sentence
Did she ever know
That her great-granddaughter
Would hear these words?
Did she ever dream 
That they would touch my heart so?
This family treasure
Stowed away for years
Comes to life again
In my heart
Reminding me that the past
Is a part of the present
And the future is yet to be written
