TIME
If only I had taken more …
TIME
I so desperately want more …
TIME
But what I really need is to be more careful about …
TIME.
In receiving,
inhaling,
ever more diligently,
breathe into the depth, life-breath of my Savior.

Praying,

giving more space, its intentional relating.

Craving,

grace to walk on, its all about embracing.

Trusting,

believing in the unseen, its without doubting.

Listening,

hearing without question, its no longer analyzing.

TIME TO …
if only I had called on God more.
Yes, I’m pleading now!
Interceding,
co-suffering,
and on their behalf.
By faith,
trusting,
and in you to craft.
To breathe,
to blow,
a wind of peace.
Breezes of comfort,
please bring release.
Cease their suffering,
one’s who are silenced.
The voiceless,
and marginalized.
Those lonely,
and forgotten.
The beaten,
and stripped.
Fearful,
and seeking.
It’s TIME, Come LORD Jesus, bring mercy and grace.

Ecclesiastes 3:1-8

There is a time for everything,
and a season for every activity under the heavens:
a time to be born and a time to die,
a time to plant and a time to uproot,
a time to kill and a time to heal,
a time to tear down and a time to build,
a time to weep and a time to laugh,
a time to mourn and a time to dance,
a time to scatter stones and a time to gather them,
a time to embrace and a time to refrain from embracing,
a time to search and a time to give up,
a time to keep and a time to throw away,
a time to tear and a time to mend,
a time to be silent and a time to speak,
a time to love and a time to hate,
a time for war and a time for peace.

Philippians 4:6-7

Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.
