A new day.
A fresh start A clear page Wonders waiting to be discovered.
New dreams yet to be born.
Visions still unseen. Insights unknown. Wisdom from God's world.
Yesterday is gone.
Only a memory now. Lessons learnt. Experience gained.
Tomorrow's not yet here.…

The power of the sea. Endless motion. Seasons come and go. The sands of time. Vast humanity. Creation care. Human achievements are but castles in the sand. Erosion.

Questions, doubts, disappointments
Like a wet blanket settling down Lower, deeper, darker Feels like your going to drown
Can't cope, can't breathe
Intense pressure mounting Will it ever ease? A burden, a weight, heaviness
Dark clouds, stormy wind, rainy days
Numb heart Spirit down Weak will
Is there a light?…

Be a light
In stormy sea and gusty wind Show the way
Faithful and true
Solid and strong Built on the rock Unmovable
Be clear Stay at your post True to your calling

Seasons come and seasons go
The sun rises then sets Day turns to night Summer to winter
Time is always moving
It never stops Ceaseless forward motion The cycle of life
The past is gone
The future’s not yet here The present is all we have Right here, right now
Be at peace
Let anxiety go Say goodbye to regret Worry’s a waste, you know
Live in this moment
Fully present Fully alive God is the great I AM
Feel His love
Never far away Wake up!… Read the rest
The journey is difficult at times
Can’t quite see A little dark Sunshine is far away
The path is narrow
Seems confined Can’t go back But can’t see far ahead
Take the ancient path
Ways well trodden Pilgrim travellers Spirit led
That’s the call Keep on walking Not alone

"Christ is in me, and I in Christ.
In Christ, my home, I belong – I see and am seen, I hear and am heard, I love and am loved – I belong.
In Christ, my home, I am safe – there is nothing that separates me from Him.… Read the rest
In the shadows
A cold chill Shivering spine Dark and dreary
Low mood Flat and lifeless Depressing thoughts
Take a step Just one Start to move
Toward the light
The warmth of God's love Feel the hope Live again
Clouds clear See again God is here

An open door Opportunity knocks Someone calling A mountain to climb
Or nice distraction? Hard to tell Difficult to know
Did it choose me?
Or did I choose it? Is my heart leading? Or simply following the lead?
Am I writing the script?…

Day of rest
Work now done Life is blessed Thank the Son
No need for more Just this moment Time to pause
Let go Finish Say 'No'
Yesterday is gone
Tomorrow hasn't come Today is life The Great I AM
In the air Melody Everywhere
Here and now Beauty Quite profound
Can you hear?…

Quiet and still
Peaceful A new day born Hopeful
Joyful Heart beating Grateful
Before the rush
Before the noise Cacophony of activity Whirlwind of productivity It's coming …
Wait No rush Meditate
All you need
All you desire Here right now Come up higher
Sacred time Not alone Heavenly company
Fear and worry Breathe in Peace and joy
Deep and wide Come and drink Life inside
Stay awhile …

Musing replaced by amusement Preoccupation over meditation Noise for quiet Activity for depth
Elders replaced by celebrities Glitz over substance Acting for being Gossip for wisdom
Better replaced by bigger Trendy over timeless Speed for well-being Quick fix for deep change
Time for a great reversal
Selfishness replaced by love Joy over sorrow Grace for guilt Peace for the storm
Lies replaced by truth Justice over abuse Hope for despair Good news for bad
Lethargy replaced by passion Purpose over aimlessness Courage for fear Faith for doubt
God over all and in all
Ready to swap?… Read the rest
God in human form Immanuel God with us
Jesus calls Follow me Will we go?
Spirit calls Gentle whisper Will we hear?
Father waits We play with toys Will we turn?
An invitation From heaven’s throne room Come and see Trinity
Other invitations Distant preoccupations Distract and clutter
Competition For my heart Tug of war
Who wouldn’t go?… Read the rest
