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

10 Years

In 10 years it’ll make sense
What I should’ve seen
Should’ve done
Should’ve known
That You were working
Through everything
For Your glory
In 10 years Your love will be sweeter
Your grace even deeper
As it’s carried me
Sanctified me
Changed me
In 10 years I’ll have more “thank Yous”
More reasons to trust You
More tears, more laughs
More hard lessons learned
More blessed-assurance
I’ll be closer to eternity
Closer to You
But if 10 years doesn’t come
And all I have is today
Did I live it right?
Am I ready
To step over the Jordan
To the New Jerusalem?
Am I ready to die
Am I ready to live
Today
