Trust

Small bud of trust
Blossoming flower of laughter
Small bud of trust
Faithful confidence never rust
Grasp your hand joyous forever
Knee-deep through life gripped together
Small bud of trust.

(Whoever can be trusted with very little can also be trusted with much – Luke 16v10).

Drown In The River

 A soft feather of divine bliss
Living fountain, transcended joy
Sweet fullness to dismiss despair.

Consume ecstasy life’s pure delight
Kiss the miracle of answered prayer
Glistening diamond, unfathomable peace.

From the everlasting waterfall grace streams
Intense presence quenches the fever of life
Drown in the river and be renewed.

(Whoever drinks the water I give them will never thirst. Indeed, the water I give them will become in them a spring of water welling up to eternal life. – John 4v14)

Alabaster Bottle

No words of self defense
Nothing uttered
No attempt to justify
Nothing to defend
No explanation
In the face of criticism
An act of extravagant love
Shameless, selfless
Broken alabaster bottle
Forlorn grace
A legacy of devotion
With drops of matchless beauty
Tears of tenderness
The light of love in the
Darkness of sin
Brokenness
The costliest perfume
Spilled, poured,
Compelled by tears
Expression of selfless worship
Whispers the heart of love.

(A woman came with a jar of special perfume. She had given much money for this. She broke the jar and poured the special perfume on the head of Jesus. – Mark 14:3).

Promise

Cleansing rainstorm pure release
Nourish my soul and with grace
dance as colourful sunbeams
Promise of your love.


(Not one of all the Lords good promises to the house of Israel failed; every one was fulfilled – Joshua 21:45).

Eternal Promise

Night has passed over
Embrace your strength and refuge
Peace and rest for weary souls.

Eternal promise
Your comfort now fills my heart
Allow your spirit’s leading.


(Know therefore that the Lord your God is God; he is the faithful God – Deuteronomy 7:9).

Boundless

Boundless provision of rest
strength overwhelms holds my heart
taste the sweet divine nectar
infinite heaven

(The manna came down on the camp with the dew during the night. – Numbers 11 v 9)
