Like a wave

Like a wave over rocks
your Spirit soothes
the aggregate harshness
finally moves

Be still, my heart
is void of pain
Furrowed clay
wicks springed rain

All but Your love
has disappeared
And so the death grip
Of all that I feared

horses and shields

as of today, i am 'in the red', but let it be known, that the red i claim is the blood of the Lamb.
Some put their trust in horses (and bank accounts and networking and good jobs, etc.), but my Lord is a shield about me. He won't let me be ashamed of my hope in Him.
If i walk in Him daily, then daily my needs will be's the tomorrows that throw me for a loop, but don't worry about tomorrow.
Note from the field...chin up, heart full of trust....
now go out and reflect His light. It's all about Him anyway.

new year

well, i moved to a new house and thanks to a heart that cares, it is my house. all that is wrong with it and all that is wonderful.
ownership is a strange thing. when i was renting, the bad things were the landlords responsibility. now they are mine. and they are not so bad. before they were irritating, and if not taken care of....well, a pain in the neck.
now....they are a part of the package.
if i take ownership of my own self, quit blaming someone else, or events, or anything seems that perhaps i can find the good along with the bad, trek on my path, and praise my Lord who treks before me and behind me.
Forgive me, Father, for not taking ownership of my life.
