His Majesty

In a spider web I see Your hand,
As it bends in the wind without breaking,
In the countless number of seashore sand,
In Your air that I’m freely partaking.

I see Your majestic and beautiful mind,
In valleys and high mountain peaks,
In creating all creatures after their kind,
In the vastness of stars Your voice speaks.

I find You in eating my daily bread,
Each day teaching dependence anew,
And live by every Word You’ve said,
You’re my God who is faithful and true.

MT  2017

Psalm 145:5 NKJV
[5] I will meditate on the glorious splendor of Your majesty, And on Your wondrous works.

When it finds no delight,
In a child’s laughter,
Or a hummingbird’s flight.

The sky softer blue
But His most precious color
Is the deep crimson red
That flowed from Christ’s side
His feet, hands and head.

By dying for me on a tree.

He commanded and all things stood fast,
All things over and under the sun,
All things present and future and past.

Small Beginnings

The Maker looked lovingly at the seeds in His hand
Each barely an eighth an inch long,
And smiled and nodded approvingly
As the other trees broke out in song,
The little seeds little knew at that time
The great lesson that God was showing,
Or the noble cause for which they were made
And the honor that He was bestowing,

Thunder and Roses

You hold all of creation
In the palm of Your hand
From the most majestic mountain
To the tiniest grain of sand
The diversity of all Your creation
So intriguing and filled with wonder
The fragrance of roses in springtime
The power of lightning and thunder.
