“There You Are”, a poem from L.Willows (Grace, Hope, a New Day, Healing)

Somewhere,
in the day that tomorrow brings,
I see you smiling.
Your eyes are sparkling with dances
that light in a new horizon.
You are gathering;
swelling, like waters that fill into rivers
that pour Love into view.
You are new.

Somewhere,
in the day that tomorrow brings
I see you healed;
your sweetened heart revealed.
Your life joins with beloveds,
in an eternal embrace.
You are in the arms of Grace.

There you are,
in the dawn
that rises up to meet you,
wrapped by the most tender mercies
and a blanket of prayers.

There,
entwined, encouraged and seen;
you are with each good thing.
You are in Hope’s dream.
There, I see you.

There you are.
Somewhere dear-
Not a far smile away.
in the Promise, near
of a bold new Day.

Philippians 3:13-14 —Brothers, I do not consider that I have made it my own. But one thing I do: forgetting what lies behind and straining forward to what lies ahead, I press on toward the goal for the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus.

Ecclesiastes 3:11 —He has made everything beautiful in its time. Also, he has put eternity into man’s heart, yet so that he cannot find out what God has done from the beginning to the end.

Isaiah 43:18-19 —“Remember not the former things, nor consider the things of old. Behold, I am doing a new thing; now it springs forth, do you not perceive it? I will make a way in the wilderness and rivers in the desert.

“Cast Forward by Love”, A Worship Poem from L.Willows (Hope, Prayer, Jesus Christ)

JerimiahBeloved11

Cast Forward by Love

Song of becoming, break in the dawn’s plea
Come, for the moments that hasten to see
Where is the daylight, the promise of heart
Cast from the dreams of yesterday’s part.

Journey remembered from stories ago
Left in the embers, lived in life’s glow.
Carry the fire, Your Light forward though
Here in the walk that burrows hearts pew.

Listen to the whispers that hope, that plea.
Listen to the cries that rise to be free.
Song of becoming, we are formed here to pray,
Carried by The Life that Lights our way.

Journey remembered from stories ago
Left in the embers, lived in life’s call-
Come yet tomorrows, far greater than these,
Cast forward by Love, the Hope that leads all.
