LOOK TO THE AUTHOR OF LOVE

Who is boxed in, frozen, unloved
One not willing to connect in prayer
To the Author of love
Not willing to share
God’s endowment of love
An empty soul
For lack of trust in God’s ways
A self-sufficient being
Not willing to allow God
To transform a heart of stone
Into a living, loving heart
One prone to share a smile
A word of encouragement
Willing to share wisdom
Gained by knowing God
Sharing love expressed by forgiveness
Even of an enemy
An act of pity, of godliness
Love expressed by sacrificial giving
To help the poor and the needy
The homeless and the fatherless
These are not acts one originates
From oneself alone, but only
Through a heart connection with God
The Author of love

THE GREAT CAPTAIN

A new day is dawning.
Peace and safety are harbored in my heart
for I sought the Lord’s counsel;
Wisdom and understanding guide my sails.

The Lord is my compass;
Oars I need not
for His breath moves me
when winds are calm.

My spirit stirs within me.
I seek the Lord
for I am burdened;
My brother knows You not, Lord.

He sails into tempestuous seas
seeking adventure,
But is in danger of going down
into the abyss — an eternal death.

Lord, calm the waves.
Draw him to safe shore.
For I will seek him, teaching him Your ways.
You, the Great Captain, will direct his ship forevermore.
