With His eyes

To see

The poverty

In your own heart first

Where you have both received and given hurt


For in Him, you are welcome

You are Home

You don’t need to grovel for forgiveness

It is a gift given as you undress

Peeling off the flesh

Throwing idols in the fire

Seeking only what the Father desires

Arise, yes arise again

Feet planted, shouting praise and Amen

His light is upon you

His glory is reaching through

The clouds, heaven-hued

Your time has come

Listen with your heart

Hear him in your soul

Your holy assignment

Will be revealed

Are you ready? Are you living unveiled?


“Arise, shine, for your light has come, and the glory of the Lord rises upon you.

See, darkness covers the earth and thick darkness is over the peoples, but the Lord rises upon you and His glory appears over you.” (Isaiah 60:1-2).


Good evening, All,

My friend and sister in Christ, Janis, saw the photo I had posted on Facebook and encouraged me to seek a poem. God is so good and faithful. When we seek Him, we find Him.

This poem was born from that seeking and reading this Scripture in Isaiah. Deep in my soul, I sense a time of rising. Rising above circumstances, rising in the Lord’s power and grace to point the broken world about Him.

Please join me at 8am Eastern time tomorrow, Monday July 27th for a live reading of this poem, Scripture and prayer as the Holy Spirit leads. Find me at

If you can’t join at 8am, the video will post to the ministry page by 9am and you can listen anytime thereafter.

May God who Reigns bless you this evening.

Love in Christ,
