His Light Speaks

Three in the morn
Darkness
Fills the skies
Fills the air
Fills my sight
Cloud fused moonlight
Stars obscured
Street light shine in town
Some house lights ondarkne
To keep the darkness out
But out on the path
Way at the end
No light filters in
Eyes don’t see the trail
Flashlight needed to navigate
Finding my way
In the dark
Solitude
Quiet all around
No one else moving
No dogs barking
No cars moving
No birds singing
Only the sound of silence
Fills the air
Beautiful quiet
In which to pray To meditate
To reflect on God’s goodness
He speaks
I listen
I hear
Poems come
Return to house
I write
You read
Mercy flows
All are blessed
By the darkness
Into which His light speaks

Closer Lord To You

I hear your voice of mercy
As you gently speak my name
There’s a need deep down inside me
That is causing me some pain

I can feel my mind is drifting
Farther from your loving side
Help me Lord to draw in closer
To your arms now open wide

Closer Lord to you
Closer Lord to you
Draw me near
Let me hear your voice
Closer Lord to you

Everyday I need to call out
To your ever-listening ears
Everyday I need to praise you
Singing out so you will hear

Everyday your word is needed
To restore my heart to you
Everyday I need to bow down
Praying for your grace anew

Closer Lord to you
Closer Lord to you
Draw me near
Let me hear your voice
Closer Lord to you

Father draw me close to you
Father draw me close to you
Father draw me close to you
Let me hear your voice

Closer Lord to you
Closer Lord to you
Draw me near
Let me hear your voice
Closer Lord to you

This Rough Vessel

I ask you not to give me praise
For all these words I share
Lift up your praise to God above
He every verse prepares

I simply jot the words He gives
I cannot fathom why
He’s chosen this rough vessel
To bless so many lives

Give God all the glory
Give Him all the praise
Lift your eyes to heaven
Lift His Holy Name

Please leave here your comments
How His verse blesses you
Or how you can relate
To what He says to you

I believe that He is speaking
To your heart throughout the day
This verse that I am sharing
Is just one more of His ways

Give God all the glory
Give Him all the praise
Lift your eyes to heaven
Lift His Holy Name

Can You Hear Me?

Can you hear me calling you?
Can you hear my still, small voice?
Or is the noise of this world all you hear?
Can you hear me calling you?
It’s time to make your choice
Will you follow the world or follow me?
Will you follow the world or follow me?

When the trials that you face become too much to bear
And the storms of life are drowning out my voice
That is the time for you to wait and pray
And not give in to a worldly choice

These are many times that you are searching for the truth
And you cannot figure out which way is clear
Your friends will try to calm you with their words
And when I speak, I know it’s hard for you to hear.

For I will tell you that my plans for you are always for your good
And that I’ll always be right here by your side
The storms and trials are oh so big and you don’t know what to do
I can give you peace when you are mine

Can you hear me calling you?
Can you hear my still, small voice?
Or is the noise of this world all you hear?
Can you hear me calling you?
It’s time to make your choice
Will you follow the world or follow me?
Will you follow the world or follow me?
