Levi

How can I say how you make me feel?

Your hidden heart is so real

Your gentle pats have turned to kicks

Sometimes I jump with those mighty hits

You’re coming soon in May or June

We’re waiting for that day to bloom

I’ll push and I’ll breathe and I’ll set you free

Into this wild world you’ll soon see

How can I say how it will make you feel?

The pain, the heartache, is so real

But stronger still is the Love

That sent you, Levi

From above

Time

Time

It flies
If we don’t pause
We’ll never find
The treasures hidden
In these hard and beautiful days
Joy and pain
Sun and rain
So often united

Time

Don’t take it for granted
It comes
But it goes away
When we look back what will we see?
Did we stop
To live, to change, to believe
Or did we run 
Without a dream?
So live today
As the gift it is
From the God who created us to be
His hands and feet

Time

It changes
This world in need
As we give Him everything

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

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 ♫

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?

Standard
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

February 3rd

You were my age
You were young
You were brave
Braver than most
You had hopes
And dreams
And plans
Just like us all
You woke up that day
Like any other
Not knowing
That it would be your last
Not knowing 
That you would be a hero
You gave your life
For the peace of Jerusalem
The Holy City
For our country
The Promise Land
You gave your life
For HaTikvah
For us all

In memory & honor of Hadar Cohen, a 19-year-old daughter of Israel who gave her life for her country.

“Pray for the peace of Jerusalem, let those who love You be at rest.” {Psalm 122:6}
