To feel life as I do now

A beautiful time of day
Dusk, on a summer’s eve
Under the Australian sun
I never want to die
I want to live forever

To feel life as I do now

Will it be ever possible,
The trees, with branches covered in leaves
Covered in blossom, picked by faith
OH! they barely feel us walking beneath
The corners, the footpaths, we turn and walk
Maybe the life journey we take
Continue to hold us all on earth
There are days I walked through life
As though I was in limbo
Forgetting to look around.
Without turning my head
A beautiful time of day, Dusk
On a summers eve, I want to live forever
Where the vine grows over the fence
Dangling the fruit of God
The joys of a childhood once remembered here
Imagining our deep root on earth

Walk on through

When you walk
Through a storm
Beneath the heaves of storm
Hold your head high
Through the darkness of the storm
Do not be afraid
Walk on through
There is an end to the storm
A golden sky
The sweet sounds of birds
Walk on through the wind
Walk on through the rain
Carry your dreams, though they may be
Tossed about, in the storm of life
Walking through the storm carry your hopes in your heart
You’ll never walk alone, God is always at your side
You’ll never walk alone, God is always at your side

Peace and Hope

Lately I’ve been wondering, “Why?” I’m exhausted in the last 6 years I’ve done a great deal. I’ve done a complete turn around in my life. Resettled built a home, not literally moved into a small home. God replaced all the things I lost tenfold. I did  not realise how exhausting life can be renewing your life. There has been so much I gathered in 6yrs, so much life.

 

A jolt of energy has happened today
Energy to write, I’ve struggled lately
My sleep takes me on a journey
Something inside me shifts into place
The old ways of life and “being” seem to shed off me
The weight is lighter on my shoulders
I’m floating, today
“I’ve changed
All that I know and known to be true”
The path I’m traveling, I’m not to blame

 

The good and the bad, everything and I mean everything
Are all part of my life, I don’t know why things happened
Or what is going to happen, there’s
Just knowing someone is there
Looking after me, no matter what
God is there

Habits and ways well lived for a long time
Have ways of showing up at inopportune times
Holding you from moving forward
There are times when I’m stuck
Struggling to move forward
I’ve been leaping forward then
I crash in exhaustion

Life takes me on a ride
Full of ups and downs
Life keeps moving
Far beyond my reach
I don’t have much option
It’s life

I have a say in the path I take
Carry within my heart what it knows to be true
Honour the whispers that linger
In my soul
They will carry me on my path
to success

I’ve been continually letting go
I’ve struggled, but I had to let go
Parts of me that are well worn
I don’t need them anymore
From time to time they rise
I have the ability to live above them
I know I can do it

There is the journey of life to take now
The piers where my life stood before
Have been wipe clean

There’s a new day rising
There is only forward now

Peace and Hope
Romans
5. 1 Therefore, since we have been justified through faith, we[a] have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ, 2 through whom we have gained access by faith into this grace in which we now stand. And we[b] boast in the hope of the glory of God. 3 Not only so, but we[c] also glory in our sufferings, because we know that suffering produces perseverance; 4 perseverance, character; and character, hope. 5 And hope does not put us to shame, because God’s love has been poured out into our hearts through the Holy Spirit, who has been given to us..

Praise to God for a Living Hope
1 Peter 3-5
3 Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ! In his great mercy he has given us new birth into a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead, 4 and into an inheritance that can never perish, spoil or fade. This inheritance is kept in heaven for you, 5 who through faith are shielded by God’s power until the coming of the salvation that is ready to be revealed in the last time.

The inner soul

Lately I have struggled with my thoughts, there has been a great deal going on in my life. Turning to God has saved me more and more each day. Keeping me moving forward, I have been moving forward but I have struggled to write. The more I think I am getting there, I seem to take a step back.

Music of life, created day and night
My nature is that of music
My lips have stammered
My sound has struggled
I utter a silent sound
Not able to fulfill the need of others
Dreams, thought, feelings interlaced
Inwardly, all senses answer the call
Tunes, so mysterious to the ear
Which step out to greet, granting infinite pleasure
From the darkness of the night, to the light of day
The soul I struggle to bear, the song of  my soul,
My inner soul has struggled
Through the portals of hearing, the beauty
Now of night, utter all sounds
Thunder now of night, breaks its own cloud
My flesh shivers, before my soul

We’re all a child of the Lord

To turn the page, as others do
Chances we take, before we get much older
We’re all a child of the Lord
How we look at each other
You’re the voice, Lord I understand
Your, voice is clear
No longer we sit in silence
We don’t live in fear
No longer
You’re the voice, try an understand
It’s time now we can all stand together
With the power of the Lord
Powerful, believing, we can make a better life
To turn the page, as others do
Chances we take, before we get much older
We’re all a child of the Lord
How we look at each other
You’re the voice, Lord I understand
Your, voice is clear
No longer we sit in silence
We don’t live in fear
No longer
You’re the voice, try an understand
It’s time now we can all stand together
With the power of the Lord
Powerful, believing, we can make a better life

As you would trust in God himself

Trust in your own
Untried in strength an ability
As you would trust in God himself
Your own untried ability, emerge whole in God
Dreams unfathomed that lie in the deep
Of vast oceans, the silent mind rolls
Back and forth calming forces that lie

Seek the calming forces, across vast oceans
Passions which the winds can bring the,
Guiding light of God, no man can limit what God can do
Believe in the power of God, the creator of all
Tread the heights with new found strength
Press on, achieve all you can with God at your side.

Days and years have passed by

Many emotions have crossed my heart over the past few weeks. This was my way of getting through.

 

How many steps must I take?
Thousands till I reach you,
Many times I have stumbled,
Again an Again, though I am weary
How many steps must I take?
To climb to heavens gate

Days and years have passed by
How long do I wait? I am waiting on the Lord
Waiting on you, I stand firm
The storms of life that flow before me
Yet I am still hopeful, waiting for you Lord

My existence is in my prayers
“My God, guide me each day,guide me to live”
Winds gusts and blow across the river
Yet my peace is with the river

Through all the season of time
The chill of winter, the colours of spring
Summers burning glow, Autumn bring new life,
The death of Summer, to life in Winter,
All season change, as season of life change
Smiles, tears, still I clasp my hands tight
I pray kneeling down, trusting in You God
By the grace of God, you are there to mend my heart
As you do others, whom need you help
You are there always, always
You are there, mending our hearts

Tears glisten down my eyes, leaving stains on my cheeks
I raise my arms up to you, I surrender my life to You
I cry out, I believe you are there, Yet I wait patiently for you
You bring joy, success, peace, unto our lives
The lure of temptations, scare my changed heart
Frightening me, shaking my mind, leaving me cloudy
Every day now is a new experience, I explore God
Yet do not ignore God, Your words are living in my mind
I know now, and feel your words each day

Our past may come and go
My past is my foe
There is shame and doubt
Scars
Enemies of the mind
Feel the fire within, ready to ignite
As the lions surround you
Through God, my soul is saved
With each breath, I take, With You God
All thing are possible

Days and years have passed by
How long do I wait? I am waiting on the Lord
Waiting on you, I stand firm
The storms of life that flow before me
Yet I am still hopeful, waiting for you Lord
And I will see, All things are possible

Emotions by the waters edge

From deep within our mind, thoughts
There was always water
As children, playing happily
Along the water’s edge
Around the boats, we wandered
Jumping ropes coiled, laying quietly on jetties
Day by day, consciousness of the water
About our lives, by rivers, lakes, or oceans
The crashing waves hitting the fore shore

As we grew, so did our awareness
Our knowledge of water ways
Rivers swell, Oceans abound
We grew to know the expressions of water
Water our friend or foe
We turn our knowledge to our advantage
What days to wander by the ocean
What days to meander the rivers
Yet there is times to stay at home

The thirst for the ocean fore shore
The friendship we create, with the ocean
The sense of the way life is, or is not
A change in weather, creates havoc
Perception of the weather
Creates a new direction
New life under the sun
A cycle of life

Through the storms of life
Shock and realisation
There is a time we are called
One by one, a shadow appears
I feel a presence, a power, the power of God
Beyond the terror of life
We are expected to flounder
From that shadow, we feel a tug
Lifting us out of the depths

The echo, the howl of the wind
Our ambitions sometimes chaotic
Each ambition, sometimes we miss, and miss again
Through moments of grief
The last days of spring rain
Walking in between the coming rains
The lands blossoming, drinking up waters
Our minds wander of life to come

As we turn to the water
Hear the cry of birds
The evening breeze
The beauty of the constant motion
Again and again waters roll back and forth

The wind rises,we huddle down
Hiding our faces from spray
The early light would find
Us walking freely by the waters edge
The beginnings of dawn
Wind blowing the sea grasses
Voices carry across the windy shore
The fresh morning air on the edge of the wind
Clouds burn high above with the morning sun
Reflecting images on a distant hillside
Our hearts lifted towards the morning sky
Soaring on the coat tails of wind and rain

As the wind passes your heart

All around I heard you pass
I look up to the sky
A gleaming shape floated by
And through the fields
I felt your breath float by

I felt your heart
For mine I tell you
That my heart
Heard you call in the wind
A wind blowing all day long
That sings such a loud song
Yet at time you hid yourself
I saw the different things you did,
Days when you are strong
Then days when you are icy cold
A wind that is neither young or old
A wind that blows all day long
Singing a soft tune
Light tentacles tousle my hair
Pressing against my cheeks
Tugging at my jacket
Reeling around me
Tugging at my soul
Like a lover
Gathering you in the wind
Arms wrapped around you
Calling you to dance
Hushed tones now
Hummed by the wind
Endless tunes, tugging
At my soul
My ears alert
To sweet nothings
A love gathering

Cage the wind
I tried between my hands
To gather it’s company
But like a vision
Gathered
It disappeared

A trail now lost
I tried to follow
A path that crossed
Many ways
The fields rustled
A silent sound
Feel the breath of the wind
In your face
it will not harm.

I felt your heart
For mine I tell you
That my heart
Heard you call in the wind
A wind blowing all day long
That sings such a loud song
Yet at time you hid yourself

My silent garden

Suddenly the world was silent
Yet there is no silence in the earth
Earth silent with just the sounds of God’s creatures
I ventured into my silent garden
With only the music of God’s creatures
Music to my heart for company
A pilgrimage into a world
A world where no words are uttered
Silence where only words can mature within me
I hear only creatures of God’s world
Yet I see nothing

I find myself drowned in silence
A world where soon there was life about me
And with little but no care
A gentle butterfly lands on a flower petal, before me
Life was pulsating as though I was not there
Sounds of nature
Echo
Bringing depths of joy

Turn the volume down
Listen to the world of silence

From within God’s garden of delight
