Poignant Sky

pexels-photo-405340

Life can take a toll

Even if you don’t want to pay

Collecting change and waiting

Rearrange the pieces

But the centerpiece remains in place

Not looking towards the sky

Peering deep into my heart

To find a resurrected God

Always there

My soles press on step by step

Despite exhausted legs

Hope can be a stubborn mule

Refusing to be moved

All the while infusing the spirit

I’m not waiting the sun to shine

Permanent light is inside

The sky is holding back the tears

Though it wants to cry

I just keep on walking

As the clouds make their way by

Four Corners

Four corners

Four ways

Turn right

Turn left

Go straight

Four routes to take

In the middle of it all

Take a bow 

Take a deep breath

Let it out

Walk or ride

Red lights are temporary

Real Thought Series: Direction

“My direction? Anywhere. Because one is always nearer by not keeping still.”
Sebastian Faulks, Engleby

 

Like a recording that plays over and over

Until it becomes background noise

I use to listen as the darts pierced my eardrums

Until the day came when I listened but could no longer hear

Words that once suffocated me

Words that were like violent blows to the head and left me dizzy

Only make me close my eyes and focus on the that signpost

I wish you would shut the fuck up

So I can breathe

Empty Streets Series: Direction

Exiting, my eyes had to adjust to the brightness

The light of the unknown

Turning my face towards the direction of a new way

Breaking barriers and widening the boundaries

God, I can’t recall a time when you have not astounded me

My spirit gives way to  your faithfulness

I am fully persuaded of your ableness

Once cautious steps are now great strides

And the closer I get to you, the more beautiful are the truths reveal

And the closer I get to you, the natural becomes the spiritual

Your direction of my spiritual steps leads to the heart of all things beautiful

As I exit the old, I lift my head up

The light of God there, to welcome me into the direction of a new way

Circle Drive

image

What a ride life can be
Challenges rise up
Sometimes it’s smooth sailing
Or drviving, if you choose
Inspiration at every signpost
It’s up to you to decide which way to go
Left, right, or maybe straight
A rash decision or one made to late
You can always hand over the steering wheel
And trust in God’s direction
Riding the circle of life with Him in control
That’s the best insurance policy you’ll ever invest in

A Spirit of One

Bless my spirit to be one with you, God

Let this day be filled with light and love

God I know that you are everywhere at all times

Let your presence be known to those who are in silent anguish

Quiet the chaos of the troubled minds

Whose thoughts are like prickly thorns

Can I give you my eyes for guidance, God?

Direct me, in all that is life, in all that is good

Blessed every soul that crosses my path

Hear the inner voice of their soul

And the desires of the heart

Bless my spirit to be one with you, God

Fill me with all the fullness of you
