Just Step

Just step in any direction
Trust God to steer your way
Lift your foot
Trust God to set it true
Make move, any move
Trust God to show the purpose

Just step, just step
And trust, just trust
The way may not be clear
Just step and trust
God will lead the way



I am dust
Held together
By the One who
Created the world

I am dust
Knit together
In my mother’s womb
Hand made

I am dust
Pressed into flesh
Shaped to breathe
To walk and speak

I am dust
No more than dust
Particles carried
By shifting winds

I am dust
Formed in the Hand
Formed with the power
Of the Creator

I am dust
Shaped dust
Created dust
Formed by God

Blood Gives Life

Okay, I admit blood is pretty gross. But without it, breathing would serve no purpose. We breathe to replenish the oxygen in our blood. If you’ve ever tried to live without taking a breath, then you know it just doesn’t work. Neither does trying to live without blood. If you don’t believe me, go ahead and hold your breath. when you wake up, enjoy this poem.

Blood Gives Life

Without blood there
Would be no oxgyen
In our limbs, we’d die
Our blood gives us life

A baby grows inside
The mother nurishes him
Through her own blood
Giving the baby life

A baby is born
Cleaned up and checked
Healthy because
He has been well fed

Jesus is killed
His blood spilt, sacrificed
To save everyone
His blood gives us life

I actually wrote this in April, but with Halloween fast approaching, the blood poem seemed right.
