“God’s Love Runs In Goodness”, a Worship Poem from L.Willows (Blessing, God’s Goodness, A New Day)

GOD’S LOVE RUNS IN GOODNESS

Oh, heart, don’t look back,
step forward, come along…
All that is lost, will gain again strong.
God’s love runs in Goodness,
for Grace wins Love’s Song.

Oh, heart, don’t mourn,
you must not be drawn.
The times, they are swift-
seasons pass, they conform,

We are held in His midst
like a wild summer storm.
Oh, heart, don’t look back,
The east comes with a new dawn-

Bringing gifts of life’s future
with Blessing fully drawn.
See the brightness that beckons,
hear the mercy calls ring…
At the Gates of our Lord,
in the announce of our King.

There in the East,
in the clearing that Lights
Angel wings are drawn
into heavenly sights.
Misting, then granting
the dew that brings Day
Hushed, in the dawn
by the Holy that pray.

Oh, heart, don’t look back,
step forward, come along…
All that is lost will gain again strong.
God’s love runs in Goodness
for Grace wins Love’s Song.

Tomorrow Can See

Here in the Gift
is a newness that wakes
known as God Calling,
at the dawn of daybreak.

Burdens born then,
come round to the fore,
lifted like children, all
called to Love’s Door.

Here in our hearts
are rivers that pour.
Altars that pray,
they worship, they soar.

Tomorrow can see,
Love will be throughout time.
Given, our living,
forever, as Thine.

Sing, with rejoicing,
as the morrow comes near.
Our God of creation,
The Presence is here.

Isaiah 41:40 –“The Lord your God is in your midst, a mighty one who will save; he will rejoice over you with … nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God in Christ Jesus our Lord.”

“Motioned”…a poem by Linda Willows

amotionwajWmwagZ8TA4

Motioned inside the ache of what breaks,
my limbs, they are stretched, called out to seek space.
finding the pathways hidden with twists
from all that tangles, from broken resist.

How deeply this pull does want in these arms,
they reach with far longing like the sky’s destitute,
tipping and touching with hands that sweep out
like wings former broken, now finding life’s route.

Pulse stirs within each breath that revolves,
unraveling, unwinding, revealing absolve.
Escorted within the quaking of mirth
comes joy freed upon life’s glory rebirth.
