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

Offering of Praise

Quiet my soul
When I’m afraid
Speak
Dear Yeshua
Your words
Of faith
Come calm
The storm
I’m tossed
By the waves
Whisper
Shalom
Bring me
Home
Yahweh
All I have
Is this offering
Of praise
Simple
And human
Yet touched
By Your grace
I will sing
For You
All my days

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

Individuality

I like to think
That I’m completely free
Original
And
Unique
Just being me
But it’s easy to see
How much I’ll always be
Like my dear friends and family
Through God’s grace
Their influence on me is deep
And through His mercy
It’s a beautiful thing
Individuality and community
Were made to meet
And I don’t have to be
Just little me
