I Want to Trust Him

Waves of white water rush at me.
I feel the urge to retreat.
Instead I stand within the awe
Consuming me of God’s beauty.
The coolness of the water tickles my feet.
My skin receives a refreshment.
The heat has long discomforted me.
Now God’s natural talent
Brings me a special release.
Only God can be so exquisite.
Only God can give such pleasure.
The glory is all His.
And I love Him for every bit of it.
Earth’s treasures lies in the hand of God
And He so lovingly shares them with us.
If only we would stand up to our fear and trust Him.
Many times life will seem so overwhelming,
And we will want to run.
But if we stand and trust a God who loves us,
He will give us heavenly joy.
I want to trust Him.

Save My City

My city… my city…
my state and country…
we are all so filled with sin!
I wish I could save us all,
but I am filled with sin within.
Asheville has turned its eye away
from the God who loves her so.
They’d rather enjoy sexual preference
instead of a loving God who won’t let go.
Some of us are praying.
Some of us are trying,
but so many of us
just leave God crying.
Save us, God! Save us from ourselves!
Some of us want you AND your help.
Don’t let us be another Sodom or Gomorrah.
Please save our wicked city!
Please cleanse us from our filth!
Take heart and have pity!
In Jesus Name, I pray, Amen!
