Darkness

I will lead the blind by ways they have not known,
along unfamiliar paths I will guide them;
I will turn darkness into light before them and make the rough places smooth.
These are the things I will do;
I will not forsake them. ~ Isaiah 42:16

Darkness

Darkness
Shame
Shifting sand

Spiraling
Plummeting
Nowhere to stand

Contempt
Anger
Rising again

Battling
Torment
Mind filled with sin

Searching
Seeking
Reaching for God’s hand

Praying
Yearning
Waiting to land

Forgiveness
Healing
God’s love so grand

Listening
Learning
Shackles of sin disband

Grace
Mercy
Flowing from God’s hand

Blessed are those…

Ask and it will be given, seek and you will find, knock and it will be opened to you.
For everyone who asks receives, and he who seeks finds,
and to him who knocks it will be opened.
Matthew 7:7-8

Blessed are those….

Blessed are those who follow after God
They will be transformed
Blessed are those who put their hope in God
They will rise above the storm

Blessed are those who praise the Lord
They will be filled with joy everlasting
Blessed are those with repentant hearts
They will have grace overflowing

Blessed are those whom God corrects
They will be called sons and daughters of the Lord
Blessed are those who stand with God
They will receive an eternal reward

Blessed are those who put their trust in God
They will be strengthened and renewed
Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for the Lord
They will be filled with spiritual food

Blessed are those who believe but do not see
They will finish the race
Blessed are those who wait on the Lord
They will receive wisdom and grace

Blessed are those who love the Lord
They will be filled with unending peace
Blessed are those who seek the Lord
They will be given all they need
