Peace

I don’t know what it is about You
But Your beauty is so captivating
I don’t know whether it’s the stillness of the moment
Or the sudden peace I feel in the middle of the busiest cities
But Your glory and beauty take my breath away
Tasting Your grace is better than a single day of life
Because a day with You is like a thousand years

It still amazes me that You would look my way
And love and forgive a person like me
Your love knows no bounds or limits
Your grace is the peace that falls on me like rain
You are my reason for living and You ease all of my pain
You dry all of my tears and You calm my fears
Dear God, You are so precious and beautiful to me
I don’t say it enough and I don’t praise You enough
But let me start from my heart and I pray that

I will love You more and more each day

The heart desires
The heart wants
But the brain thinks
And logic resists
Reason pleads for you
To hold up your walls
Guard up your heart
And not give it all away
Not every one is worth
The risk
The risk is sky high
When you don’t really know the person
There isn’t enough reasons for you to try

Hold up your barriers
And board up the windows
I may not see the sunrise
Or catch wherever the wind blows
I do not know tomorrow
Guarding my heart is all I know
When I do not know the individual
I am still trying to build myself up
The present and my future before me

I hand it all over to God’s glory
To write for me a song and story
Would He be faithful enough to show me
I am praying that waiting will pour out all the blessings
Waiting it out feels like thirst in a drought
But I pray that God will some day show me
Reveal His will, fulfill my desires, and complete the unknown story

Morse code prayer

Dear Lord forgive me
If I could speak in Morse code I would
To stash away secrets, emotions, and thoughts inside
That I keep silent and try to hide
But I am only a mere human being
Whose tendencies stray from solid ground
Though I know about my sense of security
Emotions are volatile like a dissonant sound
How do you keep your heartbeat steady
With an offbeat syncopation?
You’ll never seem ready
When life throws surprises along your way
You blink time after time and you breathe day by day
Some find comfort in not knowing
Some find it disconcerting to not know everything at all
I am the latter and find anxiety in not having all the answers
But God, I give it all to You, when I don’t know what to do
Your light guides my way and Your word is a lamp to my path
I give it all to You, when I don’t know what to do
Jesus, I put my faith and my trust in You

Heart, body, mind, and soul

Stay guarded, stay guarded, stay guarded
Heart, body, mind, and soul
Cover yourself up, entirely and whole
Guard your emotions and guard your thoughts
Detangle confusion and loosen the knots
There’s no joke to conspire with fate
Don’t push luck when you ought to wait

Don’t arouse love until it so desires
Don’t strike up a match unless you want to burn with fire
Love is not a game, but I can sure say that lust is
Love waits, while lust gives in

Love trusts, but lust swindles from within
Love provides and is self-sacrificial
Lust takes away, is self-serving, and gives at the bare minimum

Stay guarded, stay guarded, stay guarded
Treasure your value and know your worth
Who do you choose to be with at the end of the day?
Between love and lust, which do you think will stay?
Cover yourself up, entirely and whole
Heart, body, mind, and soul

Sun & Moon

You have me going through the motions

You are the sun and I am the moon

We orbit around dawn and afternoon

Between us is the whole world, time, and space

But when the stars align in perfect place

The asymmetry eclipses the light and the dark

Polar opposites attract in harmonious spark

Who knew that the heavens would allow us to meet

And who will know tomorrow like destiny

Show me your heart and give me your hand

Write your name in the stars ‘til I see you again

I want to know you

Stolen glances
Exchanged in moments
In the room

Yet neither one moves closer
Or acts like they’ve got a clue

Do they know each other yet?
Mini dialogue and laughter
Caught in the moment of time

Framed like a photograph
But the memory is obsolete
It’s intangible
Like nostalgia on the mind

But you catch another glance
Just one more time
And it makes you feel like
The whole world is right

Right in that moment
When I see your smiling face
You light up the hallway
And everything is okay

Is this what they call a dream?
I’m day dreaming away
To a reality unseen

But a better reality is knowing
Who you truly are
Who is the person behind that smile?
Getting to know you is just the start

Oh, how I love You God

Abba Father
If you can hear the silent cry of your daughter
You know where I stand in my life
Better than I
You know my place and my timing
If there’s any reason or purpose of finding
I want to know that I am obedient to Your will
That I am not my own
And I was bought by Your blood
Beyond all the heavens, earth, and stars
I know that I am truly loved
So would You stay with me as I pray?
As I ask for Your wisdom and compassion today?
Proverbs praises wisdom, that there’s no greater treasure to find
Than the fear and love of the Lord in a lifetime
My heart cries out, because I know that I deeply desire You
Above all else, there is no one greater, holier, and more true
I don’t want to give in to the fleeting ‘passions’ of this world
Dressed up in fading beauty in the false facade of pearls
Take my life, take my heart, take my youth, take all the love that I have to give
I pray that I walk righteously in all the days I live
