You are Here

You are Here

By Rachel S.
Lord, I look for you here. 
This world is so crazy! 
I’m tired of swimming. 
Tired of trying so hard to survive. 

So, Lord I will seek you. 
When life comes crashing over me. 
When the world seems so dark, 
I will look for you. 

I will search for you, 
When the thunder roars. 
When the trials of life soar, 
I will seek your face. 

When I’m tired and when I’m weak, 
I will take time and be still. 
I’ll look for you— 
And not in the comforts of this world. 

The world tries so hard to turn my gaze. 
It tugs and pulls at me. 
I don’t know what to do. 
It’s hard to keep my eyes on you! 

Lord, be my anchor. 
Keep my eyes above these perilous waves. 
Be my rock, 
My hope of salvation. 

I will continue to look for you. 
You are hope. 
I will trust in your unfailing life. 
I will believe that you are in control. 

Pour out your presents 
Let it rain upon us. 
Let your power and strength, 
Overwhelm and surround us. 

Be my lifeline. 
Be my hope in a dark world, 
Be my source of joy. 
Be my peace. 

I lift my hands to you! 
My King and Redeemer. 
My Everlasting Lord, 
My All in All. 

You are here in the chaos, 
You are here in the noise. 
You are here in times of turmoil. 
You are here. 

Praise God

Praise God!

By Rachel V.
With all my heart I praise you.
With all my love I adore you.
I’ll lift up my voice unto you name,
Saying “Hallelujah! God is the same!”
He is the LORD of all,
And the God of me.
So through His I will praise thee.

Something Bigger

Something Bigger 

By Maryann Y.
I hid it from everyone 
I told not a soul 
Never breathed a sound 
It twisted within 

Unspoken deed 
That I had committed 
Faded through my heart 
The haunting memory 

I couldn’t let go 
Of this terrible sin 
Latched on to my mind 
And under the layers of guilt 

She stopped me 
She asked 
All words escaped me 
She knew 

We stood for a second 
None of us spoke 
Then it all spilled out 
Confession cascaded 

I told her my story 
I left nothing out 
She just sat and listened 
I felt I was judged 

But then she surprised me 
She said someone loved 
And this everlasting love 
Promised something bigger 

Then she told me 
She too had done this 
And she had harbored it 
And escaped from it all 

Then someone had stopped her 
Had guessed from afar 
They read through the lines 
They translated the fight 

She told what they said 
How he would forgive 
That someone was perfect 
And died for her sins 

He could give life 
Instead of this curse 
I wanted that promise 
It was something bigger
