Soli Deo gloria – IX

 

When the heart is absolutely torn

ripped apart by a hurricane of loss

When spirit falls in mourning

and darkness descends like night

 

It feels like the soul is empty

drained by heavy strain and pain

Is this really meant to be?

I bite bruised lip in shame

 

Life will drench us in torrents of rain

Life will pour out its buckets of pain

During the tempest the seed is fed

In the morning, colours of spring is bled

 

The reminder of our endured passion

Is that we are on eternal mission

Holiness, not happiness our creed;

The mantra of those by salvation freed

 

Your ways are higher than ours

Your understanding is higher than ours

We are infants trying to understand

what the glorious Creator has planned!

 

Seek healing in the house of the Lord

and He will envelope You with Love

that will fill your heart, until it bursts

Soli Deo gloria – VII

Seven

 

Praise the Lord for Light;

for the Stone of hope

for the reality of Your Son

Praise the Lord for Your Blood;

that was shed to reconcile

poured onto a Cross

Praise the Lord for our Church;

for the communion of followers

who bow down at Your feet

Praise the Lord for renewed reality;

that the broken world

will be restored one day

Praise the Lord for relationship;

that we do not journey alone

that we are never alone

Praise the Lord for reconciliation;

that You pursue us

with everlasting joy

Soli Deo gloria – II

 

Two

 

When I come to You with prayer:

during hectic times, anxious times or

peaceful times – You listen.

You listen when I am weak

You listen when I falter

You listen when I am praying with joy

 

Lord, You are my Father and Your ears

are never too busy to hear me

Whether I am seven, seventeen or seventy-one:

You listen to Your child’s prayer

I am overcome with awe that You

would consider my prayer to be meaningful,

even though it might seem trivial.

 

You care more about the small,

Seemingly insignificant details of life

than I could ever imagine

Praise You Lord, for You

listen to the utterances of a sinner
