like the wind…

For grace that’s like the wind, a breeze

that washes over, carries me

That fills my lungs and helps me breathe

Oh how I thank you Lord

IMG_1431

For like a leaf that catches wind

I take the breeze you daily send

Or storm or gust or winds gone still

What’s filtered through this wind, Your will

DSCN3289

Or like a little ship am I

moved, yet anchored, guided by

The winds of grace—not just the tide

I will adjust  my sails

And  like a ship that sets its sail

through westward wind or stormy gale

through zephyr, cyclone, simple draft

I trust you to bring me Home at last

DSCN3323

 

DSCN3294

Yes safe at last, once through the storm

You bid to trust you, carry on

Trust as a ship  blown by the wind

Comes safe to shore, once… again.

DSCN3191

The journey lingers, onward still

Oh, Lord, I’m thankful that your will

Is more than what I’d ask or think

this in between-this reckoning

Is but a moment in eternal time

Yours is the grace that we will find

at journeys start and journey’s end

Grace brings me Home

again and again.

DSCN9534

Yes,  how I know, oh how I’ve seen

the way you move, the reckoning

Of the now and not yet-this space between

You’re in it all, Oh Lord

DSCN7475

 Even a  feather in the sky

Drifting quietly on by

Yes, all is seen  by your eyes

There’s comfort in that truth

leaf in water

So come oh storm or breeze that blows

We may not know what it bestows,

But we know at the Source we’ll find

A greater view of Grace divine

IMG_1431.jpg

For grace that’s like the wind, a breeze

that washes over, carries me

That fills my lungs and helps me breathe

Oh how I thank you Lord

Your Grace, like wind,

Restores.

Blessings ~

p.s.  I started out writing a “thankful Thursday” post, and this is what spilled out <3.  Thankful for sure.
