Merry Christmas

He is Emanuel; God with us He is with us when we crest the mountain peaks And He is with us when we are in the valleys At the peak His presence seems so obvious In the depths it seems like He cannot be found And yet He is there The future will show you... Continue Reading →

Hope & the Youth of Today

This morning my 10 year old daughter had a bit of a melt down because she only got 88% for mathematics on her recent progress report, not a grade, but a progress report. It was strange, because when I was a kid my parents would probably have done a dance if I got an 88%... Continue Reading →

Light Of The World

Light of the world Burn inside my soul Kindle deeper love Draw me closer still   May my consciousness Be overloaded by Your presence May the thought of You, direct all that I do Let me be consumed by the fire of Your love   Holy Jesus, may your glorious name Be reflected evermore in...

Because You

I choose You Because You chose me I choose love Because You love me I choose submission Because You have set me free I am healed Because You suffered I belong Because You adopted me I have identity Because You named me I thank You Because You are You

2 Sides, Perspective

Sometimes I wish I was offended or repulsed by things that don't bother me I wish the effects of my damaged past were not still so evident in the choices I freely make Why do I sin? What is sin anyway? Is it really just bad words or lust? Or is it hurting people? What... Continue Reading →

Songs of Praise

I will sing the praises of The Lord at all times Not just in sunshine and good times I will praise him when I suffer For I know He will use it for His glory even though He did not bring it   I will cry out to You Not only in times of anguish but... Continue Reading →

Through Grace Alone

It is through grace alone That I am here today, not the sum of regrets For the boy that was and the boy that could have been But the man who is, who is not the man that was   Without that grace The man who is, is not And the boy that was is... Continue Reading →

Morning Light

Morning light The eye of the sky A portal to another dimension Hope arises with every burning cloud A glorious torch removing the darkness As clarity declares its reign Good morning my King Good morning my friends May this day be as blessed as the sky is beautiful  

The Council

The council gathers in the royal courts, the splendor of the surroundings beautiful beyond description, more magnificent than you would imagine any hand could make. The muffled whispers are ceased upon the pounding of a gavel, pure silence follows and the proceedings begin. “So Yejshu, tell me of the progress in the 2nd Gamma Nebulous”... Continue Reading →

Give me Your joy

May the overflow of my heart reflect your glory Let the fire of your love overwhelm inside of me Like a mighty volcano that must be released Make my soul restless for your beautiful presence Envelop me with the embrace of the Spirit Give me the faith to stand for your justice Make all my...

Your Lips

Your lips, as seductive as the evening light Love surrounds, just as the painted sky delights I am lured by your beauty As you whisper your promises Gentle reminders of your omnipresence Hope fills the air Tomorrow will be a new day, yet again    

Daddy loves me

Returning from a birthday party The temperature dances On 100 degrees Then it hits me I still have to mow As we return home My daughter wants to play Absolutely, I'd love to I say Anything to delay the inevitable Yet before I know it It's time to face the inevitable I go out and...

Beyond Repair

You took what was completely broken Completely off track Completely empty   You took that, and made this new being that is here today You took the seemingly beyond repair And put it back together again   You redirected, onto a new path, the right path You took this empty vessel and filled it You...

Metamorphosis

Metamorphosis, the life of a redeemed man of God The process of changing from what the world told us we should be Into who God says that we really are   The growing pains The frustrations The disappointment when old habits take over new desires   When you become the hypocrisy that you despise Those...

Rise as One

Even in the safest of places, The forces of evil will try to attack And in that moment, The army of God will rise as one.   With shields and swords ready We will stand in defiance of the darkness. Victory will be ours For victory is assured.   And in this moment, Eyes will... Continue Reading →

Do Not Cross

The recent sermon series at my church was titled The Power of Everybody. It is no surprise to me that I loved it (I love all the series my church does), but this one particularly spoke to me, and not that there was a doubt, showed me once again why God moved the way He... Continue Reading →

Home (In Your Kingdom) – Song

There are so many reasons why I’ve been less active recently than before. Busy life, rehabbing my strained hamstring, a 2nd puppy, but one of the big reasons is that a lot of my creative ideas of late have either quickly evolved into potential songs, or even short stories. Somehow there is a clear, yet... Continue Reading →
