My first thought of the day,
Is how can I please God more?
All my attention is focussed on his word,
Seeking out his kind heart,
Looking for the gentle nudge of love,
Delighting in each subtle expression,
Bringing my heart and head together,
Discovering their call to each other,
And, the words spoken to me today.
My dear enemy’s words are easily forgotten,
As Eternity’s whisper brings insight,
What I thought was lost is found in truth,
My soul sealed with Eternity’s birthmark,
Overcoming the death words that chased me,
Threatening dire consequences day and night.
Truth knew that life would prevail,
My life is lived in victory’s light.
I wake to the familiar sounds of this day,
Alive with the the arrival of life’s heartbeat,
Holding tight to God’s protective care,
Knowing my place where belonging is true,
Connecting life and Eternity to meaning and Hope.
