Shall Never Rest

From Psalm 23:1-3:  “The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want.  He makes me lie down in green pastures; He leads me beside still waters; He restores my soul.  He leads me in right paths for His name’s sake.”

Through life’s foggy mist

God’s mercy filled

With eternal peace

Feeling trust build


Darkness to light

God’s spirit flowing

Faith’s quiet brook

Leading and knowing


Greenest meadow calls

God’s deepest love

Creation’s wings stir

Flying above


No greater warmth

God’s grace melts away

Life’s icy outlook

Kneeling now, let’s pray


One heart transformed

God shall never rest

New day’s promise

Seeking another quest

Tomorrow Postponed

Gallant ship at risk

Battered by stormy seas

Crew now in peril

Bringing all to their knees


Wayward direction

No other help about

Lost in dark tempest

Navigating with doubt


Evil’s doom waiting

Chaos stirring despair

Waves follow waves

Growling like hungry bears


Hope draining away

Gloomy clouds hiding day

Erratic compass

Searching for tranquil bay


Turmoil faced alone

Unwelcome darkness roams

Light ahead invites

Sailing toward safety’s home


Beacon now fading

Promise dwindles away

Tomorrow postponed

Surrendering its way

Spiritual sunrise

Grief stricken for three days

Tomb open and empty

God fulfills Word, ablaze


All of creation sings

Rejoice in faith’s Good News

Risen Christ conquers death

God rejects evil’s ruse


Morning’s promise brings truth

Resurrection affirms

Prophetic Scripture scenes

God shares love, grace confirms


From darkness, world bends knees

Redemption offers peace

Savior pays debts in full

God ensures life’s new lease

From Psalm 105:4-5:  “Seek the Lord and His strength; seek His presence continually.  Remember the wonderful works He has done, His miracles, and the judgments He has uttered.”

Eagle’s Shadow

From Isaiah 40:31:  “But those who wait for the Lord shall renew their strength, they shall mount up with wings like eagles, they shall run and not be weary, they shall walk and not faint.”

Lost in hidden wilderness

Walking gloomy path, alone

Life’s never-ending circle

Frozen in time’s endless zone


Abandoned without refuge

Searching hellish, barren land

Emptiness speaks with silence

Tireless quest, sinking in sand


Days feel as chilling as nights

Shivering, icy outlook

Hopelessness without promise

Shadow circles, pause to look


Eagle flying overhead

Calling out to thee, follow

Sunrise filling empty heart

Journey no longer hollow


Calvary’s cross stands over

Kneeling upon sacred ground

Tears’ cascading emotions

Life no longer lost, grace found

From John 20:18:  “Mary Magdalene went and announced to the disciples, ‘I have seen the Lord’; and she told them that He had said these things to her.”
