“Footprints in Awe”…a poem by Linda Willows

Awesomenature
Footprints in Awe

Lifted to the clouds I felt
As if my all could float to be
Like a child in God’s sweet arm
Swept near, swept in, swept close to His knee.

All the sky then felt like my home,
As if the earth were heaven’s own…
Joined together we were one
A life connected, through His Son.

This moment stood then as if apart,
Vivid as color and time soaked my heart.
All of my life and being was held…
All by a cloud in a joy drift that swelled.

“Surge”, my heart said, don’t let this go.
Life could take you back in its tow.
Oh the beauty, the Love, the wonders I saw;
I wept in my soul and made footprints in awe.

“Freed as Love’s heir”… a worship poem by Linda Willows

DdancersFR239821 Tom StioLord, pull my heart and wrap me round
the whole of love’s immersed, endowed.
Now drown the hallows of life’s waves
into such depth of Your sweetened gaze.

I cast all towards Your certain way
and leave behind what binds and pleas.
I’ll carry not my burdens there,
For in Your care I am freed as Love’s heir.

I bid my heart to rise to love
and walk as one born boldly new.
Holding, keeping, living, reaping
All lived from the glimpse of none but You.

Love sighted by such awe of the heart…
O Lord you have set my soul aglow.
It births..it gives all life a new start.
I reach, embrace and shall never let go.
