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

Today is a Promise

Today is a promise to tomorrow
A dream
A commitment
An adventure to follow

With God as the compass
And love as the guide
You’ll climb every mountain
And cross rivers wide

No journey is easy
But no words can explain
The joy & the beauty
That sings in the rain

Sunshine will brighten
Hearts held by grace
And hope gives strength
Day by day

It’s a heritage you’re forming
A home established forever
Built by the One
Who brought you
Together

–For Silas & Abigail LaGoy.  Yahweh bless you more than you can dream!

Not Forgotten

Let’s pause to remember
Let’s acknowledge what is true

For every life is precious
A gift from above
Let’s not forget
Let’s stand for honesty
For love
For freedom
For those who have no voice
For the unborn
For the slave
For the unknown and ignored
Let’s stand for hope
For justice
For grace
Let’s walk humbly
Bravely
Toward the God of our redemption
Toward the hope of tomorrow
Let’s not forget
Let’s change the future
