a passing thought

Comparing happiness to joy
is like
comparing cheap pink bubble-gum
to italian dark chocolate.

intercession

This is something I wrote during prayer group, it's not much, maybe repetitive, but it's a prayer for our youth and the church.


dryness
lack of hunger
death
give us You
give us thirst
give us hunger
teach us to run
to You
lay aside weights
fight
rejoice
love
stand in awe
be patiently persevering
teach us to feel
give us clarity
wisdom
trust
teach us to give over control
focus us
let us be obsessed with the goal
rest in You
give us awe
hope
teach us to worship

promise in a sunrise

I wake
my eyes and thoughts are blurry
and the sun greets me
I rejoice
sometimes
other times there is a steel wall on the sky
and my heart is cloudy
but I am still with You
I caught a glimpse of the sun
before the clouds took over
and for a moment, the promise stained the clouds with joy
I blinked and it was gone
I wondered if it was a dream
the day was gray and cheerless
then the irony of it struck me
there is not much color to a blue sky sunrise
I smiled and tucked the sunrise in my heart
to light up the rest of the dreary day
in Your presence is fullness of joy.

Sometimes I am melodramatic... Bear with me. My favorite thing is finding hope in hard places. If you enjoyed something (or not) I would love to hear from you! You can make me very happy by leaving a comment :)
