free verse, Rhyme

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?

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

Rhyme

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”

He Knows

He knows the future
I cannot see
And every way
I’m incomplete

He knows the questions
I do not speak
Every doubt
That’s hidden beneath

He knows my heart
Tattered and worn
Every sin I’ve committed
Since I was born

He knows every secret
Every dream
Every fear
He knows every longing
Every thing I hold dear

He knows me completely
Inside and out
Though
There’s things I wish
He didn’t know about
Yet
In His presence
He makes me new
And wipes my shame
From His view

What kind of love
Could this be?
Except the matchless
Love of the King
Who gives this gift
To all who’ll receive

He knows who I am
I am redeemed

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

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
