THE MOUNTAIN

images (2)

I started my journey up the mountain
The purpose was to find the fountain
The testimony of so many, whom searched and found
I was told as I search, to listen for the sounds
Of waters overflowing, a river rushing and pouring
living water, a spring of life, formed by sacrifice
It wasn’t long as I started up the steep ravine
I ran into the person of sin, his darkness was clearly seen
Instantly I began to stumble and fall
Frightened and full of fear, I heard an echo off the wall
Of the mountainside, a voice cried out, walk this way
There I saw the person of grace
He spoke to me about being covered from my stains
He told me to keep climbing, It is soon to rain
He told me of the person I was next to face
He said to climb as to win the race
Not to far up I saw the person of Wisdom
As He told me to come
Then He showed me a book, A map, a guide, directions to the brook
In which I was seeking, It was like a holy meeting
Because He shined like the sun
He told me these words written, is how the battle is won
If I am to overcome the mountain, I must follow the words of the Son
He spoke of truth guiding my way, and warned of one who betrays
Then I saw him, the person of lies, he was in disguise
To trick and deceive, he highlighted all my sin, and looked at me with piercing eyes
He told me to go back, I can’t reach the top, no matter how hard I fought
There was no way I could win, and then again he had me focus on my sin
I remembered the person of grace, and how he said I was covered from my stains
It then began to rain as Wisdom said, I drank and I was ready to climb
To my surprise there it was to find, the peak was in sight
As I reached the top, I was tired from the fight
As I looked out from the mountains top, I could see many valleys and peaks
There in the far distance a river overflowing in my sight and in reach
The beauty was like nothing I have seen
It was then a breeze came, with a voice saying
The peaks and valleys will help you grow
The peaks and valleys will help you come to know
The purpose of the one who created you, so His love will show
On the journey up, The Mountain

TOGETHER

Who is it that found my wondering heart
This heart that leads me astray
A wanderer whom darkness falls
Memories of one who calls, to the lost
The markers along the way
Road signs that simply say
I am here, come this way
Ignored the signs so many times
Yet I find, your still here pointing the way
In my myopia, looking for a utopia
That I would never find
You patiently waited to remind
What I already knew in my heart
I’m not alone, there is one who walks with me
One who is faithful, who loves me
You have shown me the truth
Sunny days or stormy weather
Only one thing matters
You and I, together

WHAT IS YOUR WALK LIKE

A MOMENT IN HEAVEN

Did you start out running in Christ
Did you fall deep in love, giving all your might
Did you believe, he called you to fight
Against all the enemy came to destroy
Did you put on your full armor and learn to deploy
The prayers of a warrior and use your sword
Did you find fellowship becoming of one accord
Did you serve Him and take your stand
Freeing others, the demons you reprimand
Did you climb mountains and overcome
Did you win battles and limp from some
Did you wrestle with God at times
Did He reveal himself and deliver you from lies
Did the enemy tempt you, and you went astray
Did you repent and with Him you stay
Are you struggling like all of us
I’m so glad we can discuss
This walk we are in
What is your walk like
