free verse, Story

Stop.

Sunrise
Sunset
Restless sleep
Get up
Check your phone
Short prayer
Busy day
A quick hug
Distracted listening
Lack of vision
Days blur together
What is tomorrow?
It is today
Where are we going?

Stop.

Run to a quiet place
Sit
Rest
Let Him come
In His time
Changing your heart
Thunder rolls
Music plays
Your heart sings along
Dancing in the rain
Joy through the pain
Faith, hope, and love remain

Peace Comes

Peace doesn’t come
Through restless waiting
It comes through abiding
Resting
In the hands of the One
Who made your heartbeat
It comes in the stillness
When fear is cut down
By faith’s mighty sword
When your worries
Turn to worship
When your longings become
A prayer
When you open your hands
For Him to empty or fill

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

Just Him

Quiet my soul
Rest a while
In His presence
Not a care
Just Him
Just the darkening sky
And the cicada’s song
The occasional breeze
And a firefly’s flicker
Just the peace
Of knowing that He’s here
In this small corner of the earth
Alone with me
And yet also everywhere else
At the same time
Just the comfort
Of having no words
Because sometimes words can’t speak
♫ What a Friend We Have in Jesus ♫
