See The Stars – Proverbs 17:22

See The Stars – Proverbs 17:22

Health and hope
Require the cheerful heart
To see the stars
Beyond the clouds
The crushed of spirit
Lose it all
Only seeing the clouds
Unable to reach the stars
Still I know it’s not easy
To see cheer
Beneath the clouds
That gather over our lives
But try for the stars
Find the cheer
And the health and hope
It’s all we have
To keep us going
For in Him is the hope
With Him we’ll reach the stars

Blessed – Psalm 119:1-4

Blessed – Psalm 119:1-4

Do we feel truly bless
Are we deserving of
Of that which He promised
Maybe we strive
But don’t quite make it
Strive to follow His ways
To live as He lived
Yet He blessed us still
His broken
His lost
As the promise is truth

And the truth
The foundation of our faith

Not By Chance – Proverbs 16:33

Not By Chance – Proverbs 16:33

Not by chance
I must face these things
The battle
The wars
All I must see
Work my way through
As I trust in the Lord
To reach clear skies
And learn from it all
So if just one person
May face the same
They can see through me
A way to make it through
To see clear skies again
So in this I persevere
And trust within the Lord

Rescued – Colossians 1:13-14

Rescued – Colossians 1:13-14

A dominion of darkness
Once my resting place
I became someone else
A person I didn’t like
A person I didn’t know
Yet He rescued me
Though I wasn’t worthy
Into a kingdom
Where I could find myself
Discover who I am meant to be
All in my redemption
By the Son the Father sent
To set the captives free
To find a better self

Left Out – Hebrews 12:14

Left Out – Hebrews 12:14

No one should be left out
None should be without friends
To be loved like a child of God
Everyone the same
So why do we shelter ourselves
Keep others at arms length
When we should be at peace with each other
This is the holy way
But still so many so lonely
So many felling left out
Now so angry at the world
Not knowing of the peace
That they could find
