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

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

~In honor of Holocaust Remembrance Day in Israel

Feel the Rain

Dark or light
What is your choice?
Truth or lies
What holds you tonight?
You can open your heart
And allow it to change
Let go of the fear & feel the rain
Falling down from the Father above
He is near
Nearer than your broken heart
Closer than the doubts swirling inside
He’s holding you together
When you cannot feel
Hearing your soul’s cry
When you cannot speak

Catching every tear that falls silently
It’s here
In the storm
That He brings you peace
Rest in the middle of a restless sea
