Words Of Few

The words to express are few and only these

I am not even sure I can fall to my knees

Instead I might crumble to the cold hard floor

But I will dare not walk out that convent door

God wants me here, I feel it deep in my heart

This love of kids and this life, I cannot part

How can it be that this is what God does intend

And I am left with these hard things to fend

There is no way my being here is a mistake

My genuineness to follow this call is not fake

So what do I do, how do I continue this journey

Not losing the call within or falling far from Thee

If others get in my way or from You distract

Please don’t let me lose my mind and pack

God’s plan I am determined to fully follow

To not let my faith in Him run out hollow

So as I crumble to the hard floor in tears

Know that I am just fighting through the fears

It is harder than one may outwardly perceive

I just hope from this life graces I do receive

Thank you God for the gifts to me given

For You I keep trying to live to get to heaven

How You Love Me

This past Thursday, there was XLT with the high school students.  It is adoration starting off with a witness talk, then adoration and music, followed by a social.  During the adoration, I was inspired and wrote the following prayer and poem.

Lord, hold me in your hands.  I give all of myself to you and your will.  Times will be hard, Lord this I know.  Please guide me  to the ultimate expression of love that I can share.  You are my salvation.  I abandon myself to you, help me stay strong.  Amen

Oh Lord, how you love me

A love that is deeper than the sea

You know all of my heart and soul

What fills me to the very full

The pain I caused you know

All the troubles I do sow

Yet you love me all the same

This the reason that you came

For you see something else too

The great things that I yearn to do

In my being you put a burning desire

Wanting to go set the world on fire

You to me this you did give

The passion for which I live

I stare at each broken hand

How am I to work in this land

It is your saving, love-filled grace

That brings me to this place

Where I adore you in prayer

For me, you truly fully care

Take this heart to you I present

Make it pure and unbent

Give it strength enough to suffice

And I will pay whatever the price

For you my everything to be

Oh Lord, how you love me

Throughout All Time

In the beginning

In the here and now

In the future

Throughout all time

 

Sinners we have been

Sinners we are today

Sinners we will be

We run and hide from this

But we sin, it is true

 

In the beginning

In the here and now

In the future

Throughout all time

 

God’s grace has saved us

God’s grace is saving us

God’s grace will save us

We must believe, have faith

And our sins are wiped clean

 

In the beginning

In the here and now

In the future

Throughout all time

 

We have served God

We now serve God

We will serve God

This in thanksgiving we offer

Our work for your glory

 

In the beginning

In the here and now

In the future

Throughout all time

Move On In God’s Grace

What is done is done they say

You got to move on not matter anyway

So what if it was oh so very great

Or very bad and full of such hate

God’s grace has pulled you through

You now need to do what He says too

Sure somedays maybe so difficult

In this world there is lots of fault

But pick yourself up off the ground

And live in the love you have found

When you look into Christ’s loving face

To see the grace that keeps you in place

Oh Christ, I Adore You

These lyrics were inspired from a night of adoration and worship.  Please enjoy!

I lay all that I am

At your feet in adoration

Only because of you

I have something to live for

Oh Christ, I adore you

 

Christ, you alone understand

The makings of my entire being

As I gaze upon you tonight

Fill me with all the grace I need

My inner being dances for joy

 

I lay all that I am

At your feet in adoration

Only because of you

I have something to live for

Oh Christ, I adore you

 

Christ, I could never express

All the gratitude I have for you

So with you in your presence

I give myself to your own will

Lead me to share the joy with all

So everything I am becomes yours

 

I lay all that I am

At your feet in adoration

Only because of you

I have something to live for

Oh Christ, I adore you

Deep Down, What is it?

Here two little poems that I rattled out while at adoration with the novices who had a sleepover all planned out for us aspirants.  I know I have not posted any pictures yet, but they will surely be coming soon!

—–

What is it deep down

This love you have found

What is this thing in you

That drives your life on

Is it even possible here

To describe what’s inside

Does it run through you

Like a raging river

Can it spread to others

Sharing in the magic

—–

Who is to say what it is

The power that brought me here

Love that has carried my life

Saving me from myself, the world

The mysterious spirit present

Works wonders against evil

Here I land by grace of God

With no words to fully express

What is left as indescribable
