Seasons

Seasons come
And seasons change
Sometimes floods
And sometimes
No rain at all
When it’s dry
And the land is parched,
Cracked and thirsty
When it cries out
For mercy so life can go on
Even the moisture
From a bird dropping
Can feel like a flood
Until a real rain starts to fall
That’s when the season
Begins to change

Seasons come
And seasons change
Sometimes floods
And sometimes
Far too much rain
And the land is saturated,
Muddy and drowning
When it cries out
For mercy so life can go on
Even the light
From a lightbulb
Can feel like warm light
Until the sun starts to shine
That’s when the season
Begins to change

Seasons come
And seasons change
Sometimes joy
And sometimes
No hope at all
That’s where the love
Of Christ come in
Full of grace
Whether or not
You welcome Him
He’s waiting, He loves you
He’s more than just
A changing season
He’s changeless
Through every season

Not a Piece of Social Media

On twitter and Facebook,
Tumblr and Pinterest,
You pick what you like
And follow what interests you
This is all good,
But don’t treat God
Like a piece of social media
You can’t just log off
Or unlike some part of Him
You can’t personalize
God’s layout or block parts of Him
Do you want to know why?
Because when He made you
He personalized you
Created you to be who you are
Gave you a purpose and
Created a plan just for you
He crafted you,
It doesn’t work
The other way around
So don’t treat God
Like a piece of social media

Forgetitude

God, when I forget
To be grateful,
To be thankful,
I get cranky.

God, when I forget
To be humble,
To be giving,
I get annoying.

God, when I forget
To be loving,
To be forgiving,
I get angry.

God, when I forget
Who You are,
How much You love me,
I feel lost.

God, please forgive
My bad attitude when I forget.
God, please forgive
My forgetitude

Not Faith

What is between
Me and God
Goes way beyond belief
Trust is a word
That’s not strong enough
To describe what’s
Between God and me
It’s not faith
Nor is it fear
It is much stronger
Than all of that
Between God and me,
I know on a level
I can’t begin to describe
That God is in me
And I am His
Beyond faith,
I know I am God’s
Beyond belief,
Beyond faith,
I know what is
Between God and me
