Blinded Sight on loan from the maker of reality and I glimpse only a fraction of the picture The parade of time marching before me and I am subject to the constraints of the sidelines Thirsty Deep calls to deep, leaving me wanting more Spirit river laps gently Calls me in, downward to the deep … Continue reading What it means to dive deeper into God’s word
It's been a whirlwind of a week. School's back in session. The big kids started last Monday while the littlest guy comes to work everyday with me. I've been back at work for several weeks now since having the baby. Honestly, I didn't really take a maternity leave at all. I stayed away from the … Continue reading My Own Private Jungle
I'm in love with you the light in your eyes when you look at me the smile that graces your lips when I am near the sound of your laughter the sound of your voice the faithfulness in your hands the strength of your spirit the prayers the joy the peace the persistence you are … Continue reading James
Singular, I stand, speaking to the air Lost, all things escaping my lungs, gobbled up in earthen noise Singular and driven as my arms flail like ribbons at the mercy of the wind Together we accomplish more As one we cry One voice lifted above the madness One army united before the fray Joined to … Continue reading Singularity
I can be cynical and critical by nature. I blame the gift of discernment. I once heard someone say that our greatest weaknesses are our greatest strengths overextended. My intuition and wisdom can lead to an attitude fast if I don't temper it. That aspect of love from 1 Corinthians 13:5-7 where love thinks the … Continue reading I Want a Psalm 20 Heart
We've had a lot of rain over the past month here in Southwest Florida. The ground is saturated and consequently when more rain comes, we flood. The odd thing is that most of our street is high and dry, but our yard is a swamp. It's inconvenient in a lot of ways. We can't mow … Continue reading Random Beauty – Grace
Re-posting this for the Daily Prompt. http://dailypost.wordpress.com/2013/08/14/daily-prompt-reflections/
Deep within the mirror, reflected back the image of who I once thought I was. Something beyond the obvious stares back at me through eyes windowing the soul of the seeker.
More than sharp features, high cheekbones and brown eyes, I am won; wholly purchased by the author of beauty who sees me lovely.
Beyond the broken glass there is a story. Love overcoming the dullest ache and the deepest uncertainty. Surrendered now to its power, I rest in the arms of one who sees more than an image on a glass screen; more than the portrayal of plastic offered by the populace; more than wrappings and trappings adorning the fearful. My lover sees me.
Creator who marked the heavens with unending glory, you who painted the sunset and placed each peak in its wonder to jut from the earth in majesty, reveal to us the wonder you see in each masterpiece…

Stretched thin am I as faith and fear collide Cascading plans, as towers, tumble to the waiting ground Opens up to absorb them Covers them with dust All other ground is sinking sand And I hover, helpless to save In breath, I reach Stretched upward like flame pulled higher I become vapor Seated on the … Continue reading Stretched
This morning I wasn't myself. Don't ask me who I was...just someone different. All the things on my mind were hazy under the fog still attached to me from lack of sleep. Ambitions for coming endeavors sat numb on my tongue. Words came out but didn't really connect with my brain. I told the Lord … Continue reading A Note to my Future Self on Thankfulness
I think I would love to lead a group of imaginary people. I could preach for hours and imagine their response as they are moved by my words. I could lead them in worship and see them cry out to the Lord in praise. I could watch them as they are moved to tears when … Continue reading On Imaginary Leadership
