A Journey Among the Stars

galaxy-779335_960_720

Riding on the tails of stars

Heading to distant giant quasars

Flying beyond the regions

Once only seen by God’s own legions

Passing beyond the Milky Way

Beyond the known light of day

Moving so fast I go beyond

Faster than the speed of sound

Past planets, asteroids and comets flying by

Into areas only seen by the Creator’s own eyes

A journey up into the heavens

I can feel myself among his very presence

What a Difference a Year Makes

What a difference a year makes

Just twelve short months ago we were as far apart as the earth and the moon

Both hidden inside ourselves

Ready for it all to end

A love we thought built to last

A union of two coming to past

Miracles we soon learned do exist

At a bottom, our relationship did almost land

But two hearts were taken in hand

A hand of God placed upon us

Light of the world shown into our lives

Rising out of that dark place we had settled

Day by day we learned to love one another

A truer more deeper love than we had known before

Doubts were always on the horizon, challenges still lay in our path

Fighting for what we had begun so many years ago had just begun

Good days and bad, we made it through

Now ahead lays the biggest challenge we will face

Just know that my heart burns only for you

You are my love, my life, my one true bright shining star

Just twelve short months ago, I know it would have ended in ruins

But know now my heart and soul rests with you and yours with me

Wherever I go, here my heart will be

A future of brightness we have ahead

Adventures and journeys together we shall share

Know my love for you knows no bounds

No height, no depth will keep me from being around

For what a difference a year makes between us

Shadows of My Past

soldier-1927614_960_720

Shadows of my past

Following me into the twilight

Forever leaving an imprint on my days

Sometimes pulling me back

Leaving a note of melancholy on my soul

Only the melody of your love pulls me through

A light in the darkness of this world

You are the Way, the Truth and the Light

Showing this sinner a worth that was lost

Leading my steps forward on this path of my life

You are my Shepard

Into your arms I will go

Leaving these shadows of my past

Darkness Into Light

 

favim_com-4963425

Lost in the night

 

Hidden from your sight

 

A thief comes to snatch away your soul

 

Sadness he leaves

 

Uncertainty it breeds

 

Dreams created that leave you morose

 

When you awake

 

You’re left with heartache

 

Looking for the light

 

Needing help with this fight

 

Upon the Lord your hope rests

 

Grace and mercy He provides when you confess

 

Upon Him you can rely

 

To take that tear away from your eye

 

Taking the darkness out of the night

 

Make your way into His light

 

Out of Darkness into the Light

Man Walking Towards Cross

Purging the darkness out

Fighting back the void of night

Left with a hole so full of blight

Walking a path through a tunnel ahead

Towards the end and freedom’s stay

Often stumbling and falling to the ground

Arms of darkness trying to pull me back down

Trail ahead fraught with danger

Fighting furiously to save my soul

Alone I’m left lost to despair

Needing the help of the one who has conquered death

Pull me close oh Lord, fill me with your might

Lead my path ahead into your light

Pit of Despair

despair

Darkness envelopes me as I’m pulled down

Into a place I can’t escape

My heart turning to stone

My soul lost from my site

Voices call to me

Worthless, unlovable, horrible, unwanted and much more

I try to scratch, I try to crawl my way out

Nothing I do can pull me from the deepening pit of despair

I begin to pull away from the ones I love

A mask I wear to hide my plight

Deep and deeper I fall

Voices tell me you know there is only one way out

I plan the only escape I believe is available

I write my children letters of goodbye

The one I love the most I don’t know how to reach

She has saved me before, but now I’m unsure

Something stops me but I know not why

But I still cannot escape my pit of despair

I begin to turn to mindless distractions

To quiet the voices, but they leave me a void

The one I love reaches to me, but I push her away again and again

A wall grows between us I fall further down

I want to escape and cannot find away

Things come to a head

She says I’m unsure if I can stay

I hit the bottom of my pit of despair

Awaiting me there is a light from somewhere

I look and I see a hand reaching to me

I’m pulled up and out and see the light of day

The rock around my heart begins to crumble

My soul awakens to the warmth and light

Is it to late to win my love back

A hand reaches to me and a voice says to me

My son you are loved, by grace you are mine

My Lord and Savior has saved me again

Why did I turn away and hide my shame

When he never turned from me

 

This is written to talk about my pain. There are times when we see no escape, but Jesus is always there and never turns away from us. Isaiah 43:18-19, NIV Forget the former things; do not dwell on the past. See, I am doing a new thing! Now it springs up; do you not perceive it? I am making a way in the desert and streams in the wasteland.
Matthew 6:34, NIV Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own.
I hope my love understands that I never stopped loving you or wanting you, I was unable to reach you and I ask for your forgiveness as we go forward each day. For tomorrow is a new day.
