A Feast

A gorgeous sunset is
a feast for the eyes.
God’s grace – a feast for the soul.
A feast at a banquet
May fill the body,
His bread and wine fill the heart.

Bread, wine, God’s grace and God’s love–
A feast – whatever
You wish to make of it.
Everyone is invited—
His table is set.
Come, kneel, eat, and worship.

Do You See Me?

Do You see me, as I am, Lord?
Do you see my evil?
Are You there, Lord, when I cry out
Will You answer my cry?”

Will you look at me with loathing
When I cry out to You?
Will you satisfy my longing?
Will You forgive my sins?

Though I cry out in self-hatred,
I will believe You care,
For I have known your mercy, Lord;
I’ve seen Your grace at work.

In my heart are many riches;
Riches You have given
If I’d but open up my life
To You, O Lord, to heal.

Do You see me as I am, Lord;
Do You see potential?
Help me, then, Lord, as I’m changing
To become more giving.

A Preposterous Promise

After the people made that golden calf,
Then it was God promised, “I’ll be with you.”
Treks into wilderness are arduous,
But they’re assured, “I’ll give you rest.”

When you go to Him when you are weary,
When life is a struggle just to survive,
Jesus will be with you in your crisis.
Just stop, rest awhile, and trust Him.

We need not be anxious, for God will guide,
Provide, and protect, and nourish each soul.
Whatever your circumstance, God will be
With you, for that is His promise.
