Worship Artists – Poem

Worship is not an art form And if it is then surely we are all worship artists Scrawling out our life drawings on the canvas of our time Day to day, tracing or replacing lines Trying to draw out the image of the Creator to display to the world in the gallery of our character.... Continue Reading →

Grace – Poem

The grace of God is not a dish cloth to wipe up the messes we make But a safety net that catches us after the risks we take And the steps we make as the Spirit breaks sin's hold on us! A heavenly gift to lift us from the rift caused by the original lie,... Continue Reading →

Her Face – Poem

The very concept of make-up is a tragedy An idea that in some ways can border on blasphemy The audacity that we human beings think we can "make-up" for what we perceive to be God's mistakes is a fallacy. In not all but some cases a compact mirror becomes a reflective prison for the true identity... Continue Reading →

Love Stories – Spoken Word

I used to love writing love stories and plotting them out in my mind. Star-crossed lovers or long-lost brothers, stories of every kind. Tales of legendary deeds performed by ordinary men I used to think I was the author, now I'm finding I'm the pen. The greatest Poet ever known has taken hold of me... Continue Reading →

Passion – Spoken Word

This is a poem I wrote to share with my youth group at a church weekend away. It's technically a spoken word piece so it may not completely translate in written form but I hope you enjoy it anyway. Maybe try reading out loud to yourself with dramatic pauses. When I say passion, tell me, what... Continue Reading →

The World Wide Way

Do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewal of your mind, that by testing you may discern what is the will of God, what is good and acceptable and perfect.  (Romans 12:2, ESV) When we talk about "the world" and being conformed to "the ways of the world" we're not...

August

I love a good before and after storyFrom overweight to lean, from strung out on drugs to cleanI've often wondered what it looks like for God to redeemA soulI think there's plenty of "before" but I'm not so sure we get to see the "after" until we're standing beneath split skies butSome believe that the...
