His Salvation Is My Story

How marvelous are the many things of You.
Wonderful, Counselor, Almighty God.
How grateful I am to be under
Your protective Shepherd’s rod.
Your eye is on every one of Your sheep.
You see the one that goes astray.
You leave the ninety nine
To carry me out of my wayward way.
You hold, You embrace,
You cover me with Your hand.
Thank You, Holy Spirit,
For helping me to understand.
The blood of Jesus cleanses me.
His salvation is my story.
How worthy You are of honor
My ink pens Your glory.

The Clear Illusion

gaillovesgodspoetry

So many miles. So many adventures.
In haste I carried my soul away.
I put pleasure above obedience.
I was the prodigal daughter gone astray.
Moments of foolishness brought tears
That could not cease to fall.
I brought death to my spirit.
I had carelessly forsaken all.
I was certain You no longer cared for me,
Yet You met me with love and open arms.
I returned just to be in Your presence,
Where I knew I’d be safe from harm.
You were so broken to see my crushed spirit,
And wanted to nourish and restore.
Where I thought You liked me less,
You poured out love more and more.
The playfulness of my youth was an illusion,
But now I clearly see…
I don’t need to run to the world
When You’ve always been with me.
