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!

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

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?

What…

What do I pray 
To the One who calls
The stars by name
Trillions
Beyond what I can see
Sparkling
For the King of Kings

What do I know
Of His plans for me
He says 
Let go
Trust is complete
It takes
Every part of me

My broken heart
And shattered dreams
The scars that have healed
And yet they bleed
The thoughts that I keep
Buried deep
My heart wants a fight
But can it battle Elohim?
The One who gives life
To everything

It’s all in the open
Open sky
Clear before You
Like the stars each night

This is surrender

I give up the fight
What can I pray
To the One Host High
Except
Thy will be done
Tonight
I am nothing
Without Your light

Remix

Life is a remix
We repeat each other a lot
And sometimes we feel
That we’ve discovered
Something new
Only to find 
That it’s been there all along
And as much as life
Seems to change
It remains the same
Sunrise
Sunset
Rhythm and rhyme
They’ve been used a million times
The same chord progressions
The same Bible verses
Humming in our hearts
Challenging our minds
Ideas return
They don’t go away
And what one generation
Forsook
Another embrace
It’s a comforting circle
It’s familiar
And safe
When the remix of life
Makes us all the same
Desperate for our Maker
Beyond time and space
