In His Care

There is the me
  I want to be.
There is the me
  I am.
Ever seeking God,
 To lead me in ways
  I ought to understand,
  forever in His care.

Vast Expanse

Looking at the world around us
Can bring so many sights
It can bring us to our knees.
For God’s vast expanse of the sky
Which surrounds us with the beauty of
Creation we do not fully understand.

For God created earth and sky
For all to understand,
His beauty deep and wide.
We dare to understand.
How He brought a man and woman
Into this land to live and die
By honoring Him with their presence
This vast expanse of earth and sky.

Whispering Pines

     I heard a vice the other day, it whispered, “Come hither, come closer.” As I tried to refrain from listening it became more distinct. It said, “Come away with me. I will bring you peace. Spend some time with me in meditation of my Word. Stay the voices of busyness and rest within my arms.” The voice reached into my innermost being and bid me lead my heart to Him.

     Speaking further within me, he bid me, “Listen to the winds of the pines. They blow softly toward you, whispering, ‘I am with you to the end of time.’”

     I leaned in His everlasting arms for fear of never again hearing the small voice whispering.

     May I ever be mindful of the still small voice within that reassures me, “You can share with Me in the cool of the evening, ‘neath the whispering pines, just as Adam and Eve in the beginning.”
