Find Me in the Rivers

Find me in the rivers, the streams,

the mountains the valleys the oceans the lakes

the deserts

the heights and the depths

find me as a shade, find me in the breeze

find me as a hummingbird,

flittering about, suckling the sweet nectar of life

find me at your side,

holding your hand,

telling you that I love you

because I do, always and forever.

Let us kiss the wind and fly away.

Lean

What do we mean when we discuss love and beauty?

The ads throw out those words all the time.

Just because those words sound nice doesn’t make them

any more worthwhile than “biscuit” or “hamburger.”

 

Love and beauty must be experienced to be real,

it lies in a hand-hold, it blossoms in a word of encouragement

With no effort at all, we can tear down someone struggling to get back up,

to believe in themselves.

 

We can believe in them. We can uphold their worth.

My friends, be there for those who need it

and we all need it from time to time.

 

Let us join together and not only sing, but live out the simple words,

“lean on me when you’re not strong.”

Have Faith in God

Have faith in God:

-when the journey is long

-when the lights are all gone

-when you’re hurt & in pain

-when you’re left out in the rain

Have faith in God:

-when you experience wonders untold

-when you inherit all of the gold

-on days when you do not feel old

Have faith in God:

-in every season

-for every reason

-because He is pleasing

Have faith in God

The Moments that Keep Us Going

We call it the drop:

that moment where you shed all your stuff

of how you think you should be and how you should act and how you should sound

and you just trust yourself and listen to your body and the company you’re with

and it’s like a burden lifts off your soul and you drop comfortably into yourself,

Those are the moments we strive towards,

the moments that keep us going.

All You Can Be

There are moments,

where you take a chance and it blows up

it your face, and you feel like an idiot

but you knew if you didn’t do it, you

would always been standing at the precipice

asking God,

“why’d didn’t I jump?”

Not all risks will end pretty

sometimes you jump and you splat,

but if the intention is honest,

and the passion is real

and you’re not out to play games or plug yourself,

then it’s worth it, because you tried

and maybe that girl will say no,

or the casting director won’t give the time of day,

or maybe nobody will understand what you tried to do,

but it’s okay.

You were you.

And that’s all you can be.
