“Godly Dare”, a poem by Linda Willows (Know God, Trust God, Love Forward)

Godly Dare, by L.Willows (2012)

With heart in tow, I advance upon dare
The life that I have, is paved with deep care.
I must not want nor lose myself there…
Even my breath could be lost somewhere.

Spinning upon a few stones in the path,
I steady, and feel the
lonesome of wrath.
Dizzying memories
bring heartbeat
to fast
Before
the earth
seizes,
my soul
in firm grasp.

Horizons each new
and painted deep blue-
They beckon my passion
to deeply know You.

I hasten
to leave any hindrance undue.
Godly Sights, sacred dare,
Oh, Keep me with you.

Joshua 1:9 –“Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be frightened, and do not be dismayed, for the Lord your God is with you wherever you go.”

Ezekiel 1:12 —“And each went straight forward; wherever the spirit was about to go, they would go, without turning as they went.”

My Lord you bid my heart to cry…
You sway my soul with a lifted sigh.
Closer than from a stilled Lit Throne,
All beckons; becomes and brings me home.

Joy reaped from the years that time did find;
Grace forwarded all mined true, as Thine.
Lord, find me praying, singing out at the door.
This pilgrim dissolves into joy at Love’s Pour.

My Lord you bid my heart to cry…
You sway my soul with a lifted sigh!
Take my hand, my life; brace all in your Own
and lead me into Your Kingdom known.

“The Moment That God Made”, a poem by Linda Willows

zzzzNature

Stillness comes in the sweet summer’s green eve.
I sit in God’s vast and gaze. Oh heart, I believe.
All becomes wonder, a calm hushed serene,
cast in the joy of the surrender’s unseen.

Tendered sweet breezes lift and float by
tossing the meadows; the birds rise to fly.
A lullaby hums from clouds far, far above-
I feel we’ve been blessed in this hour with Graced love.

Green feathered leaves dance in the sun’s warm light,
rustling, whispering; they reach to delight!
How deep is my wonder of the moment God made-
undisturbed, unknown and from heaven portrayed.
