    This weeks is one of my oldest ones. I wrote is on a day I had a ”emotional breakdown” way back when was about 11. It a little revised since I wrote it, but I still like it for it’s simplicity. ( I did compose a tune to this one, if you can call what I do ”composing”.)

    As usual, critique and enjoy!

    Be Still

    Be still and know
    The Lord is God
    He’ll guide us with His rod
    Be still and know

    Be still and know
    His Father love
    His voice like a gentle dove
    Be still and know

    Be still and know
    He is our friend
    He’ll keep us ’til the end
    Be still and know

    Be still and know
    He’ll bring us home
    And no more will we roam
    Be still and know

    Be exalted
    Victorious
    Be exalted in us
    Here in our hearts

    Be still and know

    Psalm 119:11
    Your word I have hidden in my heart,
    That I might not sin against You.

      This week I am posting poems I wrote for birthday cards for an uncle and a cousin of mine. Critique and enjoy!

      The Pallets and the Craftsman

      The pallets, stacked to the side,
      Have seen the strain and struggle of a burden
      Now left for useless, they feel so purposeless
      But, unbeknownst to them, they are being eyed.
      For them someone can a new purpose provide.

      Now a hand, able and strong
      Is taking, creating from that wood stack
      Something for his service, something with a purpose
      According to what he’d dreamed of all along
      And they too shall see it before long.

      From work-scarred and roughened boards
      He builds a bench and brushes it with paint. Now
      It thinks with joy of the service it can employ
      The weary it welcomes to the rest it affords
      A refuge from the clamoring hordes.

      Restoration’s not unknown
      To you. At times you struggle and sorrow on.
      You have wrestled with the weight of life much too great
      For you to uphold ev’ry day on your own.
      Yet know, craftsman, SomeOne hears you groan.

      The wrestling with the weight
      The struggle proves the soul is true and tempered.
      You’ll endure uncertain tomorrows and sorrows
      The Master Craftsman’s love can the pain abate
      Of those who for His coming await.

      So strive and struggle for Him,
      For He’s the only Master Whose burden’s light
      The sweet relief you find with Him is never brief
      Though living within a land of sufferings grim
      May His joy fill your heart to the brim

       

       

      Bloom and Be His

      A single chord, one brave note
      Little by little it builds to a symphony
      A tender heart, one brave soul
      Used by the Master, they ring with His harmony
      As an instrument that he hold in His hands,
      Let your heart be His

      A single bud, one brave plant
      Little by little it groweth up to beauty
      One willing heart, one brave soul
      Patterns the Master, can mirror His purity
      As a vibrant bloom that He tends with His hands
      Let your soul be His

      A servant seeking His will
      Watching for ways to serve His Master well
      A humbled heart, that’ll gladly
      Bow to the Sovereign and lowly before Him dwell
      As a messenger yielding under His hand,
      Let your lips be His

      All of His children must grow
      Little by little to achieve His likeness
      A simple trust, a loving heart
      Father’s fellowship knows in all of it’s fullness
      As a child holding on tight to His hand
      Let yourself be His

      Psalm 119:11
      Your word I have hidden in my heart,
      That I might not sin against You.

        This one was written after a time of pondering about the question “Why do you do what you do?”  (Maybe I took the question a bit too seriously?) Anyway, this is what I wrote. Enjoy and critique to your heart’s content.

        Questions
        Why do I do the things I do?
        Why do I claim to follow You?
        Why did I choose to lose the life I knew?
        Why do I do the things I do?

        What is the purpose for my life?
        What is the reason for this strife?
        What if there isn’t any afterlife?
        What is the purpose for my life?

        Where is the love I claim to hold?
        Where in my heart Your love untold?
        Where do I place that love so manifold?
        Where is the love I claim to hold?

        How will they know that it is true?
        How will they know? They have no clue.
        How will I show them? How will I break through?
        How will they know that it is true?

        When do I live like I love You?
        When did I tell them You rescue?
        When did I hold Your Word in high value?
        When do I live like I love You?

        Who is the one I am living for?
        Who is the one I’ll always adore?
        Who is the God that I’ll praise and implore?
        Who is the One I am living for?
        You are the One I am living for!

        Why do you Lord love me still?
        Why when all these questions from me spill,
        Why do You strengthen me, my needs fulfill?
        Why do you Lord love me still?

        Why do I do the things I do?
        Why, it is because I love You!
        How can I serve You until I’m made new?
        For You I’ll do the things I do.

        Psalm 119:11
        Your word I have hidden in my heart,
        That I might not sin against You.
