Jaded

Jaded

Jaded heart.
Callus feelings.
You feel
no hope.
You see
no cure.
You can’t help
but wonder if
there’s a future
for you.

You want to run.
You want to hide.
You can’t see past
Your jaded emotions
inside.

A spark of light
to melt
the pain
would soften you,
would heal you.
If only you could
see that there
is a future
for you.

You want to cry.
You want to hide.
You can’t break through
Your jaded emotions
inside.

Reach for Him.
He’ll soften you.
He is
the hope.
He is
the cure.
He can help you
and show you
you are loved.
There is a future
for you.

You want to run
into His arms.
You have been healed
of your jaded emotions
inside.

A Father’s Love

A Father’s Love

Wounded child
Battered child
Let Me comfort you
As a father should
In a loving way…
Not a hurtful way.
Let Me shelter you
Let Me comfort you and
Protect you
From your pain.
I’ll shield you
And keep you safe
Underneath the shelter
of My wings.
I’ll stay with you
And wipe away your tears.
I’ll never leave you lonely
And afraid.
Wounded child
Battered child
I love you.

Oasis

Let the Lord be your Oasis in the desert.

Oasis

Be my Oasis, Lord.
Satisfy my thirst.
Fill me up
to overflowing.

My journey through
the desert
has been long
and tiring.
I am dry.
I want to
rest in You –
in the shelter of Your
wings, in the
comfort
of Your hand.

I long for
Your
living waters.
I know that
they will satisfy
every ounce
of my being.

Restore my life,
cleanse me,
make me pure.
Make me more
like You.
I need You
to be
my Oasis

Court Case

Picture yourself on the witness stand. Now picture yourself being asked, grilled about your beliefs, your Christian beliefs, your trust and love for Christ. You’re true relationship with Him. How would you fair?

Court Case

If you were on trial
would you lie?
If you were a witness,
would you purge
your testimony?
Would you be in
contempt of court?
Would you try to hide
the truth?
Would your words
acquit you?
Or will they
condemn you?
So help you, God.

Through the Eyes of a Child

Through the Eyes of a Child

Through the eyes of a child
I long for You.
Through the eyes of a child
I sit at Your feet,
Listening and learning
of Your Way.


Melt away myself.
Wash me white as snow.
Take away myself
Because, Lord, I want to know
You, through the eyes of a child.


Innocent eyes
Absorbing Your Truth,
Soaking in Your love.
Touch my Heart today, Lord –
I long to feel You
Through the eyes of a child.


Through the eyes of a child
I long for you You.
Through the eyes of a child
I long for Your embrace.
I sit at Your feet,
Listening and learning
Of Your Way and Truth.
Through the eyes of a child
Soaking in Your love.
Through the eyes of a child.
The eyes of a child.
Through the eyes of a child.

Jesus called the children to him and said, “Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of God belongs to such as these.” – Luke 18:16

Marketplace

In our busy lives, do we stop and pray? Do we stop and look for Jesus? Are we the shining the light of Jesus to strangers? Are we able to share hope to those who need comfort? Or are we just another face in the crowd?

Marketplace

Pardon me,
do you know Him?
Pardon me,
have you seen Him?
Pardon me,
can you help me?
Pardon me,
I want to see Jesus.

To just catch a glance
of the One they call
Messiah,
the Redeemer and King.
To just see His wonderful
face.
To be in His presence.
To reach out and touch Him.
To be in His light.

Pardon me,
do you really know Him?
Pardon me,
have you really seen Jesus?
Pardon me.
