Shiny Things

God lets us play with shiny things,
  and hold them in our hand.
They seem so precious for a while,
  but then they turn to sand.

The gifts of life will come and go,
  not meant to always hold,
as if they'll grow more precious,
  like silver turned to gold.

They come, go, and when they do,
  they turn from sand to dust,
and often the best shiny things,
  just end up full of rust.

In the end, the lesson learned
  might sound a little odd,
but the only gifts that truly last
  are those we give to God.

Just say the Word

"Just say the Word"
  is more than a phrase,
it's how I intend
  to spend my days.

To say God's Word
  is awesome indeed.
It's the very food
  on which I feed.

Hiding His Word
  in my heart and soul,
renews my spirit
  and makes me whole.

His Words are life,
  a lamp and a light-
it brightens my path
  in darkest night.

The Word of God
  is alive and true-
it's changing my life
  and point of view.

"Just say the Word"
  means so much more-
than any old slogan
  you've heard before.

I Seek you

I seek you in the morning hour.
I seek you with a blooming flower.

I seek you through the words I say. 
I seek you with the heat of day. 

I seek you morning, noon and night, 
in times of rest and pure delight. 

I seek you through a time of woe, 
with family, strangers, friend or foe. 

But all too often you're unaware, 
how I've come to seek you there. 

You seem to think you're seeking Me, 
when it's Me whose been seeking thee.

Draw Near

Incline your ear
  and come, draw near..
Call upon me and you will hear!

Seek my face
  in a quiet place,
and you will sense my warm embrace.

Just make the choice
  to seek my voice-
your heart and soul will then rejoice.

Draw near and know-
  I love you so!
I'll surely never let you go..

Dear Lord

Dear Lord, bring me to this state,
despising all the things You hate.
Change my heart from up above, 
to only seek the things You love.

God saw the light

God saw the light,
  that it was good,
dividing the light from the dark.

May He do the same
  with His holy light,
driving darkness from my heart.

Be Still

Be still my wandering heart,
and worship the Lord alone.
Bring your love to the King above,
who calls you His very own..

Be still in the storms of life,
though wind and the waves assail.
God hems you in, beginning to end
and His promises never fail..

Be still and you will know,
as you hear His gentle voice.
He rules over all. You will not fall,
so now let your heart rejoice.
