Somewhere in this world, there is an open hand,
Waiting for a love to come to take away the pain
Of so many years alone in the dark.
You see not what you should see but
When hope comes, your eyes become open,
To what was always there from before you were born.
The rain comes and washes away the dirt,
Just let this Love wash over you
And cleanse your heart like the rain coming down like a shower.
I sit by the open window
Watching the day pass me by
Not certain but hopeful for a time to come
But for now I shall be content with this very hour.
Rest, now, my dear friend
Take my words and allow this change to come from within
Your life will not be the same
After you give over your life
For the life to come.
Two thoughts intertwined,
A rose among thorns
Is the state of my mind
Where can love be found but in our hearts
Not from man but from above
As in a gift, the promise of a helper to come,
Hope for future hours when this one seems so dark.
Leave the old behind, don’t let it remind you
Of where you have been but look to the Hope I have found
And the things that will save you from the sorrow to come.
I sat upon these rocks,
is my misery so evident,
I find it hard
to be myself.
What years are these
has time already passed us by?
Waiting for a resolution
that never comes.
I sing a song for suffering,
he tells me I should be silent
but I will be heard.
These days are long
is it not possible to breath freely
or shall I always be forced
to remain still?
A moment gone,
so is its passing
that I am afraid
for what is to come.
I sing a song
to remember you by
but all I am told is that you were never real.
I sit after dreams hold looses grip,
To strip of all of the former notions,
And I find uncertain is tomorrow.
Day after day,
Days turning to weeks then months,
Still longing for more but only knowing today.
What is there about my life?
The shame is in the past, yet I feel a void,
As if there’s something more to do,
And when that time comes
I’ll know my life is complete.
I think of you everyday
Counting the days since we first met
These moments pass too quick,
Moments of reflection going so deep
It cuts through the fake
To the Truth of Life.
I count the stars out at night
Laughing at how far I have come
How far I have gone
Since leaving that place,
Some journeys only begin
After you have been and have come back again
To find what you needed the most
Was always there…
Suppose I never changed my life,
How can a man change
What only God can change,
Life is full of questions
Too few dare to ask
For fear of the answer
Some are too quick to judge…
Find a place in these words
Not mine but the words
So divinely inspired
Words of hope in this place where hope is lost everyday…
Pray aloud for change
To these moments
May we find true devotion
May we find love instead of hate
And may we find peace in all the things we go through…
So, go now into the world
With a light to shine in the dark
For in the dark are eyes eager to see
This truth you have before you now…
Hello dearly departed I think I once saw you on the Television,
You looked so beautiful but now you are gone
And I’m here all alone watching your old shows on my DVD player.
I know it might be strange to have found yourself in such a dreadful place
You must be wishing and hoping that it could have gone another way
If only someone had told you of the Hope that I now have
But I was just a little boy growing up in a small town in the South
And you were a star that shone so bright on this World but now you are dead
The radiance that once surrounded you is now gone, it was not real; it was only for a short time.
Hello sweet lady you were so nice to everyone, you were such a good person
But what has become of you is such a shame.
If only you had listened to your mother or your Father as they tried to tell you of a Hope
That I now speak of in remembrance of one, who died without true Love,
Things could have ended differently if only you gave up your stubborn ways
For the Grace that saves all who enter into this agreement with the Lord above.
Now if you are reading or listening to my words please take them to heart,
I do not wish to repeat myself when it is your turn in eternity
So listen closely to what I have to say, do not close your ears to this Truth I have to share.
We are all sinners in need of a Savior, Jesus Christ who came to earth to die for our sins.
He came to seek the lost and to redeem the sick as we are all from birth.
I shall not bore you with so many details to come,
But go and seek a Bible and read about how to come to faith in Jesus Christ,
It is a matter of your eternal life.
Do not ignore God He is calling you to Him now,
Standing at the door to your heart, just open up and let Him inside.
Days come and go like snow falling to the ground,
Each so different yet so much the same
Passing as the snow melts into the ground
So are we to return one day from once we came
Dust to dust our remains beneath the ground.
Now is the time to remember our creator,
Find hope in His redeeming grace,
Not in a building made by human hands
But in this sanctuary created by our God.
Time to take the time,
On your knees in humility
Before the Lord who came
To give life to those who are the walking dead,
Time to give over this life for a life to come
Accepting this free gift from our Lord.
I do not speak out of judgment
But out of Love and an understanding
That is not of my own creation,
I speak to you from Love
Hopeful that you shall
Share in this Joy that has saved me from the fire.
Do not close your heart
But please consider coming to my Savior
Before it is too late:
I am no better than you it is by Grace alone that I can rejoice in His Love.
