I’d Rather Love

Better to serve than to fix
The Lords perfect love in the mix
Discern how and when
And listen once again
Finding the heart line my friend

Patience, mercy and time
The beauty with His healing hand
Perfectly timed
He will nurture, not nix
Although painful; the lesson is learned …

All the while, the bud gently opens
His love shines anew, flawlessly
The rose; it beholds
The most graceful stem turned
As it grows, turns it’s face, unto Thee

Always Be Near By

Maybe I think too much …
Sometimes it causes me pain
Do I love too much in my hope
To help you to come in from the rain

God’s perfect love
I can show you long the way
I can’t make you drink from His cistern
But surely I can pray

Just a sip from His holy love
Forever will satisfy
Though it’s not up to me
I’ll always be near by

Release The Sting

I flew in your circle to find you
Pined away hours and gasped
I struggled as a mine eyed canary
Held my breath, layed low, by an asp

No one could see I was crying
Still quiet was I, unbeknownst
To the one I thought n’er would blindside me
As I hid and felt all alone

Yet the pressure drew me closer toward heaven
God’s word, my oxygen tent
I let go and let Jesus protect me
From the enemies sting that was sent

The sting of the vipers sore venom
Was dead in it’s own rebuke
In the still, open door, a breath of fresh air
A place of warm, graceful repute

Looking for you in the circle
The choice is yours, yours alone
Releasing the sting in the moment
Almighty God reigns on the throne

The Spirit of life, love, forgiveness,
Breathes new life, the stings antidote
Hallelujah, it’s God’s Holy Spirit
Who helps us and teaches His own

Releasing the sting
