Not An Orphan

Tell it to my soul and I’ll tell it to the world…I’m not an orphan anymore.

First Love

Will you give Me your life? Will you say it’s Mine?

A Love Letter

Life without Me keeps you in chains. Life in Me truly sets you free to soar.

The Script

I let someone else determine my worth. I let someone else write these lines in my head.

We are Pounding On the Door, Lord!

Oh God, we have been there before, Knocking gently on heaven’s door—But now we’re in desperation and despair. Please look out again and find us there!

Come Whatever Wave

Submerged by doubt. Submerged by fear.
Submerged by despair if our deliverer wasn’t near.

In faithfulness, she takes hold of Him, who takes away her shame.
So that she can stand in His righteousness, she takes on His name.

Song of the Stones

You may silence the people, but never the truth. Stones will cry out if these voices are stilled.

He Took the Stand

Jesus insured security the day He died upon a tree

Oh, what a Savior we have in Jesus Christ!

Just Not That Into You

I pray the distractions that once pushed You aside

will become less important in our daily lives

and that the things we choose to fill our days

will be things that please You and bring You praise

An Ode to Covid-19

A demonic, evil, hellish concoction Has been released upon the earth Its source is a reason for conjecture We’re fighting it for all that we’re worth! Mitigation is a new word we have learned And it has changed the way we live We no longer have freedom to move about Or a handshake or hug […]

I WILL LOVE

I can’t love you well when my focus is plainly “How much in my favor will  this love thing play?”
