Seeking You Early

Up at the crack of dawn,
that’s not me.
I try to keep busy,
but love, even NEED my sleep.
How do I seek You early
and gain Your favor?
You are worth the time
and it is to savor!
Help me to balance
Your perfect rest.
You promise Your children
sleep and rest.
Give me peace
in doing Your will.
Help me to know
You love me still.
See You in the morning,
talk to You tomorrow.
Day or night,
may Your love defeat sorrow!

He’s Still There

God is still there.
He’s still in my heart.
I thought we were separated,
but we were never apart.
He wouldn’t walk away
or say, “I give up.”
Instead, He embraced me
and gave me His love.
Why did I feel that He
had closed His eyes to me,
when all He ever wanted
was to help me to see
that I am His child
and always in His hands?
When I’m feeling so lost,
He always understands.
Why do I fall for it,
the trick of the evil lie
that God will throw us away
if we don’t even try?
For this is the time
that He promised to forgive.
He’s not going to take away
the love He wants to live.
