The birthplace of change

Glimmering light dances upon the horizon
Curiosity beckons, and in my mind, I run
Ideas bursting forth, futures certain,
The path is clear

Dreams collide with reality
Steps uncertain, halted, faltering
Frustration mounts, fear of missing out
The horizon fades, doubt lurks

I feel the madness rushing in
Scanning horizons, calculating steps, searching
Devising pathways, routes upon routes
A question “do you trust?”

Trust God from the bottom of your heart; don’t try to figure out everything on your own. Listen for God’s voice in everything you do, everywhere you go; He’s the one who will keep you on track. Proverbs 3:5, 6 (MSG)

You need only to be still

Joyful mornings pivot
as thunderclouds loom.
Strobes of blinding light,
a flash flood

two steps forward, one step back.

Hope’s resonating heart-song
drowned by beating drums.
merciless shadow-figures
haunting

one step forward, one step back.

unknown assailant
unarmed mortal
battle-ready
battle-weary

stand

stand in the winds,
overwhelmed
stand in the chaos,
afraid
stand in the storm,
Held.

safety’s merely an illusion.
no mortal can control
the days, the moments,
eternity.

anxious mind, now is not
for the fighting.
rest.
the battle is not mine
but His.

striving fails
but faith stands
secure,
fortified by love.

“The Lord will fight for you; you need only to be still” Exodus 14:14
