Scattered dreams

Where did they fly

On the open road

Lifted high

Time goes by

And still there’s time

To see those dreams

Come alive


Born Again

Dark inside the cocoon

Trapped and bound

Inner chaos resists the constriction

Pushing continuously up against it’s walls

Till the cracks appear

And out of darkness 

Light appears

Metamorphosis has done its work

Its irreversible

There’s no turning back

The old womb has gone

The new creature is born

Out of this paradoxical dance

From death to life

Chaos to order

Glorious wings now spread out

Ascending higher 

Into the full glory of the light of the sun

While resting in the shade of the moon and stars

Perfect trust

Amputated stumps

Dream of the vigour of their first green shoots

Just like an old ship that waits to put out to sea

To sail past the pounding waves

Beyond the horizon

Toward moon lit nights

Rich and full of deep silence

These dreams look back

As reminders of golden days

That spill into the promise of brighter days

That lay ahead

Patiently waiting for what is to come

While resting quietly in perfect trust

In the One who created

Both the tree and the hull

Which will bud once more

And sail away

Put your hope in God

Washed up
Wiped out

There’s always hope

Even when the tree has fallen 

And it’s stump lays dead within the ground

Just the scent of water

Is enough for it to bud again

New shoots will grow

A planting of the Lord instead

Even when my heart fails

And I feel as if I’m abandoned

Gods love will never fail

He will finish what He began

My hope is this

I know He can

My faith is this

I know He will

So I will fight

The good fight of faith

Taking hold of this eternal life

I will fight for hope and not surrender

To discouragement knocking at my door

Though I feel as if I’m drowning

God rules the waves that beat against the shore

Jesus calms the troubled waters 

As deep cries out to deep

My song of praise

In surrender

A sacrifice rising higher than this heavy load

Even with a deadly wound

I remember who conquered the grave

I will preach to my soul

Why are you downcast?

Put your hope in God 

I will preach to my soul

Put your hope in God


Running free

Where have all those words gone

They’ve run and hid themselves under a rock

Waiting for the rain to fall

Then they’ll come out of hiding

Shoot out from under the earth

Where they spread their roots deep and wide

Stretch out towards the sun

And run like a wild stallion 

No longer constrained by man

No longer penned in by the world

But running wild

Running free
