What is Your Life?

As vapor appears, and then fades from our sight, Or flowers that bloom, and then wither at night; The life that we live has no sooner begun, But that it is ending, and soon will be done. As all of my fathers have lived and then died; It soon will be me who is crossing […]

Waves

I’ve stood upon the ocean’s shore And watched the waves an hour or more, And every wave that rose and fell Inspired awe I cannot tell.   I’ve seen the humpback whale at play. I’ve seen him splash; I’ve seen him spray. He dances with the very waves That make for many watery graves.   […]

Trials

Some trials grow harder as time goes on, And long is the wait for the break of dawn.    But the sun that has set    Is the sun that will rise,    And the crown that I’ll get    Is an infinite prize.   As fire that never will say enough, Afflictions will burn, and the path is […]

They Who Wait Upon the Lord.

Isaiah 40:12-31   Whose strength can help when things are rough; And human strength is not enough? The way it has been put to me; I turn and put it now to thee: Who scooped his hand down from the skies, And measured out the ocean’s size?   Who by his strength that cannot fail, […]

My Worth

Dear Father, I’m seeing myself as a worm. The truth that I’m nothing the Scriptures affirm, But pride doesn’t like all the feelings I feel. I want to be something that’s worth a great deal.   But turning to Jesus and seeing His cross, It brings me to tears, as I think of the loss […]

My Wanted Blessing

Though friends receive the blessing I had wanted,      And I am left without a hope, I know my faith in God will stand undaunted,      For He will give me strength to cope.   If I must face the trial of disaster,      Though friends forsake on every side, I still will love my only Lord and […]

My God is Still the Same

When I’m lost on the road   I’ve traveled many years, When the things that I knew   Are now my doubts and fears,   When the dreams that I dreamed    Are now my broken heart, When the hope that I had    Is fallen all apart,   When the certain things change,    Secure though thought to be, […]

My Father’s Hand

I’m traveling through a foreign land, Where devils lurk on every hand, But still by faith I face each fear, And trust my Father’s hand is near.   And as a stranger in this land, I’ve learned to trust my Saviour’s Hand; For He is God who made all things, And He is Lord and […]

Give Thanks to the Lord

    Sorrow possess my soul;     Troubles beyond my control  Are posing a powerful threat;  The devil is laying his net,     Hoping to catch and destroy;     Trying to rob me of joy. But the God of the day is the God of the night, And I trust in the one who has always been right, And give […]
