creative writing...

I am not a creative writer but my friend is... here's a couple of my favorites... enjoy:

I Have Faith In Who You ARE

In a world that feels so black and white
Expected to do all by our own might
Lord, let me not have faith fueled by sight.
I thank you for who you ARE!

Strengthen me when I doubt or worry
Remind me of your redemption story
Let me have faith to bring you glory
I have faith in who you ARE!

Help me remember we are set apart
Our hope in you is where we start
Let me not seek your works, but seek your heart
I seek you for who you ARE!

You are unchanging and remain the same
That miracles can be done in your name
But if the answer is "no" I will still proclaim
I praise you for who you ARE!

Hebrews 13: 8 Jesus Christ is the same yesterday and today and forever.

Psalm 62:2 He alone is my rock a and my salvation; he is my fortress, I will never be shaken.

Hebrews 11:6 And without faith it is impossible to please God, because anyone who comes to him a must believe that he exists and that he rewards those who earnestly seek him.

2 Corinthians 5:7 We live by faith, not by sight.

Psalm 117:2 For great is his love a toward us, and the faithfulness of the LORD endures forever. Praise the LORD!


God, I truly know
With absolute certainty
That I am not worthy
Of the patience You have with me.

Patience comes from mercy
And it all comes from You
I need to use it daily
When other's faults I view.

Help me to remember that
Only Your judgement is Divine.
How can I point at dust in her eye
When there's a plank in mine?

Do I even know the whole truth
If I talk behind their backs?
I can't judge their hearts
Only You know all the facts!

So when I start the "Bless her heart"
We're known for in the South,
Put your arm around my shoulder
And Your hand over my mouth!


Take it to your Father

Why do we not remember
How much we are adored?
When we face our trials,
We should call upon the Lord!

Remember His loving kindness
Not just Divine Judgement,
God soothes and brings comfort
As our nurturing parent.

God chose us as His children
We should not be afraid.
Our names are not forgotten
On His palms they are engraved.

He leads with cords of kindness.
Feel the love that makes the tie?
Proving He is mighty to save
When He sent His Son to die.

He quiets us with His love.
Rejoicing, He will sing!
Comforting with His Spirit
With us safe beneath His wing.

Next time you're hurt or anxious
Wait to give your friend a call.
Boldly take it to the Father,
Let Him be your All in All.
