Are We There Yet?

On the road of life
There are delays, detours and death
But if we follow Jesus
We can relax our breath

Though things come to distract us
From our destination
Or we get stuck in a rut
And are fueled with desperation

We can certainly trust Him
To help us navigate
For we have His Word
That through fog, illuminates

And His Spirit will gently tap us
Saying, “Here, this is the way”
We can enjoy the journey
Counting blessings everyday -

Signposts that tell us
Mercy and goodness are in pursuit
So we not need race, but persevere  
While we are en route

Keeping Christ within our vision
Leaving heavy obstacles behind
We will get to where we’re going
With peace of heart and mind

The Samaritan Woman

She didn’t have many secrets
Or friends to tell them to
She was shamed and scorned
How long she had mourned
And longed for love to be true
Not so fleeting
In the bright light of sun
She had a refreshing meeting
With one who saw her
For who she was
He was the first
And the only one
Who could answer her questions
And quell her deepest thirst
He too was an outcast
A foreigner in this land
He crossed lines but with kindness
Receiving what she had to offer
A cup of cold water from her hand

A Call To Worship

Out of the land of bondage
I called My child
Hear the voice of one crying
From the desert and wild

Make way for the Lord
Make time in your day
In the silence, listen
To what He has to say

Before you fast forward
Through your list of busyness
Pause and reflect
Focus on God's faithfulness

In solitude and rest
Is where strength is found
And the joy of the Lord
To you, will abound

A song will arise
When you rise with the sun
And awake to His mercies -
The presence of God's Son

Psalm 46

What resources we have
In the Source of all life
An ever present help 
In times of trial and strife

He is a refuge, 
His name’s a strong tower
Fear not at calamity 
For He is mighty in power

Though the mountains fall into 
The sea, roaring with foam
There is a river of joy
Where the Most High makes His home

His Kingdom will fall not
Or be in disorder, distress
Though we may wrestle with Him
The Lord Almighty’s our fortress

Come and see what He has done
He breaks implements of war
“Be still, and know that I am God;
I will be exalted near and far."
