Tomorrow, life is but an adventure

There have been a few challenging, situations in my life lately. I’ve been working through them with help. There are times when I cannot believe how far I have traveled, how writing helps you see the many challenges of life.

————————————————-

 

The time in our life
All the things I’ve done, and how it’s been
I think about living, my mind, believing in my life
I know now, God was waiting for me
The sun shines each day,
I’ve been lucky, God has given me the gift of life
A second chance in life
A chance to talk of my writing, my life
God’s gift of prayer and all the things we believe
This time in my life how great it is to have memories
And dreams to share, today and tomorrow

So many days pass now, Oh! how quickly they pass
Time whispers around me, in the depth of winter

Moving quickly through Spring and Summer
The timely changes of life frighten me, but I still smile
Each day I grow a little older, maybe wiser, I hope
My life has been good to me, I feel there is more yet for me to do
With God at my side, so many things my mind has never known
Tomorrow, life is but an adventure

Finding life where I have, it’s been a good life here
God gave me a second chance at life, to hang around a little longer
Sit among the stars, watching a falling star
A chance to talk of my writing, my life
God’s gift of prayer and all the things we believe
This time in my life how great it is to have memories
And dreams to share, today and tomorrow is but an adventure

Not hiding the shame

Lately I have started walking in my life openly, talking more about the life I led before I came to the place I am at now. I don’t hide what happened in my life anymore, it is such a great feeling to live openly and honestly.

___________________________________________

 

 

We live a life
Sometimes not talking
Hiding the shame of life

Yet there comes a time
When we need to talk
Not hiding the shame
My shame covered me
Covered my life
I find now

It’s okay, to say, “I’m not Okay”
There are days when we can ask, “RU Okay”
Because in life sometimes, we are not really okay

Ever tried putting up a smile
Trying to convince everyone
You’re alright, it’s hard work

For years, I live my life like that
Hiding behind a smile, believing
Before achieving
When you are hurt
Really hurt emotionally
Or physically
You don’t have to hide
Or pretend

For a long time I hid my wounds
Till I found I was not alone
We all have wounds
After all we are individuals and human
To be real, and authentic
Is a challenge till we do
We will never heal

I pretended for so many years
My soul knew the truth
It knew I was hiding, lying
Healing came slowly, honestly
And with compassion
Love, forgiving, learning

Healing came as I walked into the dark side of my life
Not hiding, as I walked out of the dark and toward the light of God
I learned I was walking in the light, discover the light

All things come to pass, I wondered how?

 

All things come to pass, I wondered how?
At first it was turmoil, the turmoil slowly passed
Heartaches we have all known, today look back at the heartache
I see now I can smile, there are shadows that linger in the dark
I know now our Lord God, is there guiding me

Search out a rose that sleeps, a bloom that is lost
And a tree that is loosing it’s battle in drought ridden country
All thing in life can grow from the ruins
Let your love grow, develop faith, trust,
The stronger you get, you will endure
All things come to pass, I wondered how?
Don’t worry, talk to God, He will help
In the darkest time, we find a light
The light of a new day
We face our troubles, walking tall
We don’t face them alone
God will wipe your worries away
Don’t worry

Search out a rose that sleeps, a bloom that is lost
And a tree that is loosing it’s battle in drought ridden country
All thing in life can grow from the ruins
Let your love grow, develop faith, trust,
The stronger you get, you will endure

Matthew 6:25
Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or drink; or about your body, what you will wear. Is not life more than food, and the body more than clothes?

Matthew 6:27
Who of you by worrying can add a single hour to his lifespan?

Matthew 6:28
And why do you worry about clothes? Consider how the lilies of the field grow: They do not labor or spin.

Matthew 6:31
Therefore do not worry, saying, ‘What shall we eat?’ or ‘What shall we drink?’ or ‘What shall we wear?’

Matthew 6:34
Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Today has enough trouble of its own.

But I am the breeze that flows

God carries our thoughts sometimes when I am walking I talk with God. There is a slight breeze in the air when I am talking with God. I capture the breeze and feel God there walking beside me.

———————–

 

I am the breeze that flows
I journey down the road
The morning’s amber glows
Along the road

I carry the load of your thoughts
Life never changes for me
I am the breeze, I never change
With no change in the weather
You cannot hide from me
I am the breeze
That is my way
Along the road

The morning amber glow
The wind will cease to blow

I keep moving on
I don’t know where
Inhale the breeze, but don’t despair

Life never changes for me
I am the breeze, I never change
I may follow you, wherever you go
I am right at home, with you
As you sit beside the road,
Watching the morning amber glow,
Exhilaration is the breeze

Imagine a cloud

Imagine a cloud
I do when I am walking
I wander here and there
Floating high over valley’s and hills
Once I saw a crowd of imaginary people
A field of golden daisy’s, mixed with daffodils
A river flowing gently, a pepper tree waving in the breeze
Daisy’s and daffodils, dancing like children

A river the flows gently, like stars that shine in the night
Capture the images, floating along the river
A never ending river that floats to the sea
I saw at a glance, images of children dancing
Like fields of fairies, daintily dancing
A never ending musical

A Gently flowing river, creates a tune of life
Gentle ripples besides blooms of gold
Joyful to the day, such good company
I floated beside the river, gazing
Such Joy the sight before my eyes

For often when I gaze upon the valley
In a quiet absent mood, thoughts flash before my eyes
Like stars that shine in the night,
Capture the images, I see
A pepper tree waving in the breeze
Daisy’s mixed with daffodils
A river gently flowing to the sea
Such quietness, of thoughts gives me peace
My heart fills with glee
As I ponder life in the valley
Today.

freedom so profound

I have been experiencing a great deal of new feelings lately, not sure of what is going on in my life. Now I know, I am experiencing freedom for the first time in my life. It is a great feeling. Freedom.

—————

 

As far as the eye can see,
As far as the heart and soul feel
A thunder roars inside,
The horizon is alive with fury
The sea shapes the earth
Deep shades of blue tint the horizon
Salt crystallizes my brow
There is a curse that breathes
As the tide draws away
Creating the shapes of the earth mesmerizing

I tuck in my jacket, huddle inside
Such a striking sound, airborne
Thunder roars in my ears, sounds or oceans
Airborne, breezes gather images
Feeling cold, I gather my jacket, tightly
I embrace my walk of freedom with every stride
Rain caresses my face, yet a fire burns inside
Free is the soul, free is the heart, once bound
So profound

Sharing encourages others

A heart of love flows readily
A soul flowing with generosity
An image of quiet simplicity
A heart of love ready to give
Sharing, yet unseen are the prayers
Prayers of faith, trust, time an effort

The care, edifying others
Sharing encourages others
Sharing began with the beginning of time
With our Creator
The Son gave his life for us
Sharing His life with us
The open hands of life

Heaven gathers it’s blessings
From some distant heaven
Showers you with affection

Don’t let pride get in the way
Don’t let greed get in the way
Pride and greed hinders love

Deep in our heart, is the heart of sharing
A heart that remains gentle
Laying open our heart, with means
That we can touch the lives of others
With a gentle heart, we can open our live
To the dedication enabling us to give help
Open our heart, Open our hands
There will be love in the world.

Song of Solomon 5:5 I arose to open for my beloved, and my hands …
… I arose to open for my beloved, and my hands dripped with myrrh, my fingers with …
I jumped up to open the door for my love, and my hands dripped with perfume. …

Knowing You will take care of me

 

My mind races each morning
Slow down, I tell myself
I’ve been known to use my energy
Troubleshooting my day
Today I remind myself, there is a gift,
A gift of now

Calm my Spirit, Lord
Anxiety, reminds me, breathe
Fill me Lord, with Your Peace,
So my spinning mind settles

It serves no-one by thinking ahead
By wondering what might happen

Do Not Worry
33But seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things will be added unto you. 34Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Today has enough trouble of its own.

 

Matthew 6:25
Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or drink; or about your body, what you will wear. Is not life more than food, and the body more than clothes?

Matthew 6:27
Who of you by worrying can add a single hour to his lifespan?

I know You, can give me the words, I need
They will fill the need, I’ve fretted over today’s
Situation for sometime now,
I realise, now how useless the worrying is
You, Lord, provide me with the words
The thoughts I need
When pressure exists

index1

You, Lord can reduce the Spirit of fear
When is sweeps over me
Allow me to listen for the Holy Spirit
I know the Spirit of You Leads me

It serves no-one by thinking ahead
By wondering what might happen

I know You, Lord don’t ask me to handle
Everything on my own
You are there with me, for me
Each day of my life now is there
Moment by moment
You have taught me how to rest
Rest in Your word

It serves no-one by thinking ahead
By wondering what might happen

I rework phrases in my head now
Before I speak, I keep my thoughts on You
Knowing You will take care of me

We take our worries to God

Lay our cares at the bottom of the cross
Out of the darkness, we see the light
The deepest contrast of life
I have known despair
In times of difficulty
Wisdom shines its light
God has shown me
My strength will hold
My burdens, sometimes harsh
Yet the pain, now lightened
Turn your eyes towards the hills
See the hope shine in your eyes
Hope turns in your heart
Glimpses of light shines
In the wonder of God’s light
Amen

Your image waiting for me

A journey through despair
Across valleys
I came through a journey once
My sight more powerful than the darkness
Through the night visions of the past
Fair memories of eyes that once smiled
Perfume lingered, as I came through the valley
,
Through the journey I began to see
Fair and far, images floating looking up
Searching the stars, leading them
Toward the shore, of my lost
The arrow, now lingering, floating
Hope, now lingers in the future
As I journey across the valley

Empty from a journey through the valley
Though a light now shines, like a beam
Lightning flashes across the horizon
Desolate, in despair, loves eyes now searching
Dear God, I have journeyed, but I fell
My soul searching for you God,
Now as I come through the valley
I recognised Your image waiting for me
(c)bjsscribbles

In Jesus name Amen
