If clouds had eyes
While they sailed in His wind across the skies
What would they see?
Would it be love in action?
Dogs and their people walking
Children playing in good ole fashioned grass
Symphonies praising with strings and brass
Or would it be evil?
Hard hearts plotting to kill
Addicts selling their bodies for the next pill
Young girls enslaved
If clouds could see …
Through the trees
Into people’s homes and cars
Into schools and bars
Into alleys and into our scars …
Our God sees
He smiles, sheds tears, hears our pleas
For many have not turned back to Him in full, we still idolize
Our Self, our lies
Oh Holy Redeemer
We who try to listen to Your voice are asking on our knees
Is at the ready – every moment of every hour
I choose the times, the reasons
Keeping my promises in every season
For those who try, let go and surrender
For those who don’t know, ask and I will show
I love my people
I call them by name
To rise from their graves
I am the only One who saves
Those who have ears
Listen, and let go of all your fears
Then I realized my heart was bitter, and I was all torn up inside.
I was so foolish and ignorant – I must have seemed like a senseless animal to You.
Yet I still belong to You; You hold my right hand.
You guide me with Your counsel, leading me to a glorious destiny.
Whom have I in heaven but You?
I desire You more than anything on earth.
My health may fail, and my spirit grow weak, but God remains the strength of my heart.
He is mine forever (Psalm 73: 21-26 NLT).
Welcome! You are here where all the poems are.
I believe God is Our Father in Heaven, Jesus is the Living Son of God, and Holy Spirit lives inside those who accept Jesus as Lord and Savior.
