Treasured faith

Jesus
You roar from heaven
You don’t shout
Your gentle whisper
Calms the fiercest storm
Moves the highest mountain
Into the deepest sea
Your sea of love
Is unending
Ever increasing
Always moving
Upon my heart
Taking me through
Raging storms
Wave after wave
Pounding
Then exhilarating
Through the lulls and doldrums
Ever moving
Washing
Flooding
Filling me
With life
Abundant
As You promised

Going out

Going out not knowing where I’m going
Trusting in the One who has gone before me
Childlike
Perpetual wonder
When I don’t know what God will do next
Going out
Staying in
The one enables me to see Him who is invisible
The other I sit in darkness behind a closed door

Unknown

Sparkling waters
On a moonlit night
Much unknown
Beneath its surface
Much unknown
Above heaven’s canopy
On shore
I feel familiar sand beneath my feet
One step after the other
Walking into the unknown
Secure on familiar ground

Trilogy

GOD
You are my poem
Beautiful beyond all words in song
Oasis eternal
Brilliant in perfection
Skies and solar systems
Galaxies and suns
Dancing lights of aurora
Ocean depths of colours beyond sight
Awestruck
Childlike wonder
Humble adoration
All glorious
You are
God.

MAN
Flags fly
As statements from the sons of earth blowing in the wind.
Speaking out I am and we are here
Patriots
Nationalists
Democrats
Communists
Monarchists
Socialists
Anarchists
From beginning to end
Flags fly fragile in the wind
Blown north south east and west
Striving in the strength of flesh
Planted in the soil that gives way
Buried among shifting rocks
Shaken from generation to generation
Until
His everlasting
Ever increasing
Unshakeable kingdom comes
And
Christ the King’s banner of love flies over all to see
That He is
I Am.

FAITH
Where have you gone awesome beauty
I saw you yesterday
Now you’re hiding behind clouds
I know you’re still there
You haven’t changed
You are still magnificent
I see you in my inner gaze
You’re just as clear as the day before
As if the clouds aren’t there
Magnificent one I behold you
