While at the Red Tent Living Weekend Nov 1 – Nov 3, I asked God to show me His love. I sat with my chair facing the sun (symbolic of facing the Son) and rocked and cried and prayed. God spoke to me. He encompassed me. He let His face shine on me. I was moved to write poems. Usually, the poems I write are dark and depressing, a way for me to vent my feelings. The poems God put on my heart in Texas were different. Leaving Texas, so was I!
As the sum warms my face
I feel you in this place
The serenity of the stream
Reminding me to dream
The rocks, the green of the grass
Not even evil can harass
Tears stream down my cheek
Without you Lord, I am weak
Rocking in the chair
Breathing the fresh air
“I Am” is near
“I Am” is here.
I can’t see but I can feel
Just as the wind blows, You are real
Moving the tear on my cheek
It is You, You I seek.
My face turned towards the sun
God, in me, Your will be done.
Leaves blowing in the wind
Open wide Lord, my heart is pinned.
I choose to open my eyes and be here
With You, I have nothing to fear
My salvation, my strength and my rock
I am more than just a sheep in Your flock.
Guide me Jesus, Guide my ways
May I offer always to You, my praise.
