Image of Glory

You can smile.
There’s nothing to fear.
No matter what’s in your head,
God is always near.
You can speak.
No one watches your words.
You can believe God
Over everything you’ve ever heard.
You can be quiet.
God is the guard over your tongue.
He keeps you from the ugly,
And allows life to be sung.
You can trust.
God is not going to leave.
Life may be uncertain,
But in God’s word you can believe.
There you are
Being the child He made.
Every day that you mature,
More and more doubts fade.
Look at that smile.
God beams to watch you shine.
You can hear Him,
“This image of glory is ALL mine!”

May We Listen

God’s word… God’s people…
God’s warnings.
Do we ever listen?
Are we at all discerning?
Do we realize that while there is privilege
and honor in being His own,
there are so many things
He just will NOT condone?
Like a loving parent, He wants what’s best.
He does not enjoy seeing us fail a test.
He wants to keep us close and loved.
We choose when we give up.
May God help us to never leave Him.
May we choose to trust and believe Him.

Drowning In Bills

I am drowning in bills,
suffocating in stress.
I work so hard to make it,
yet seem to pay off less.
I struggle to pray.
I struggle to believe.
I struggle to obey
and trust you will not leave.
Please enrich my spirit
with peace that you are in control.
Be my strength, as I have none.
You alone make me whole.
