Tell me the truth…and make it stick

Tell me the truth,
and set me free
from every allegiance
my heart
holds to what is not.


Fearing Him Is A Valley Job

I’m recognizing
that I need
to fear You

Barely begun,
my prayer
morphs into
a mental image of
God and I
cresting a mountain
from which He
unlocks for me
all the secrets
of His glory
and I stand,
dazed by His
and might.
And it is
I am on
visual overload
that the fear
of the Lord
takes over me.

…To fast forward
a little bit,
so far God
hasn’t taken
my daydream HD,
but He has been
showing me that
He’s heard my
and He knows
exactly what the answer
needs to look like.
My heart has needed
some work–
a LOT,
to be exact–
and God has
been doing it.
None of it has been
or sit-back-
show kind of relaxing.
But every moment
of it has been
a minute
of a much
bigger miracle.
I am being changed
by the only One
Who could do what
God’s doing–
and that’s life
at it’s best,
isn’t it?

Truly living, Truly seeing

I shall never be truly living
so long as I see the world
through anything but
the eyes of
He Who
made it.
