a rest deserved

wonderment glowing in
somber glances
reaching out to seek more
and more of that which shall
nurture a willing heart.
what, say I, plants this seed?
’tis the eyes of God
’tis the eyes of God

for indeed I
shall of sound mind
look beyond that
which I intend to fill.
what, say I, lights my way?
’tis the eyes of God
’tis the eyes of God

and steadfast
as I take this trek
from inside to
outside on to eternity
mind shirks the unfathomable.
what, say I, draws me afar?
’tis the eyes of God
’tis the eyes of God

resting now upon
grass and still waters deep
a loving gaze upon me now
O how warm and comfortable.
what, say I, casts this warming glow?
’tis the eyes of God
’tis the eyes of God

Show us, Lord

4 Show me Your ways, O LORD;
Teach me Your paths.
5 Lead me in Your truth and teach me,
For You are the God of my salvation;
On You I wait all the day.

Psalm 25

What we need to see, we cannot reveal to ourselves. The revelation of our true nature is through God who, through His grace, offered His Son on the cross so that we may see. When we ask the Lord to show us, we accept what He shows and turn as he guides. For in the dark places of our hearts, His light shines and a revelation occurs. Believe what He shows you and respond to His guidance.

Today I wait for You Lord. For you teach me with all your wisdom, you love me with all of your love, you lead me with the guidance of the Spirit. You are my salvation and Rock – All is well in your arms and within Your sight.
