World Overview

Man racing with time

Quickly jotted notes

Faceless friends and family

Life passing by

Living in a timeclock

Checking Apple’s watch

Running life’s racetrack

In a zombie world

Filled with roads to nowhere

Lonely souls needing God.

A List Of Things

Clipboard with list

Things

Things lost

Things broken

Things we’ve found

Things of beauty

Things chosen in haste

Things we’ll treasure forever

Things we let go to slip away

Things broken by their use or misuse

Things left behind, forgotten, unwanted

Things dreamed about yet never received

Things dreamed about that we’ve achieved

Things we never wanted but got

Things that rose up like weeds

Things we kept to appease others

Things we threw away

Things we’ve loved

Things we miss

Things lost

Things

Dead End

Making unwise choices

Following blind guides

Leads to securing

Path of broken dreams

Do not remain there

Turn around, go back

Gather scattered pieces

To recreate your dreams

Revival

Leaf in the wind drawing
“leaf in the wind” drawing by LeonasDesigns

My mind wasn’t focused on You

Like a leaf in the wind

It swirled and twirled

And got carried away

To wander in places of doubt

Coming to rest on the fence of indecision

Caught in the fear of unknown

Where it began to wither away

Without purpose

Until the force of Your divine breath

Caused it to stir, awaken, and break free

To soar to higher places

And sit in the heavenlies

At Your feet

Soaking in the truth of Your word

Now it’s a mind renewed

To do good works

And walk in Your Spirit on earth

It no longer wanders aimlessly

Blown by winds of uncertainty

For it awaits resurrection

Where it will live forever

On the tree of life.

AMAZING GRACE 

Amazing Grace Original Drawing
And when I remember 

Myself 

Adrift in a sea of sin 

Zombie like, drowning

In my own foolishness 

No one to help me, nothing to

Grasp on to, I was lost, but then, 

God’s Grace

Reached out to me

Amazing Grace 

Came to me

Enveloped me, and saved me

Acrostic

“Amazing Grace”–the Song-Verse 1 

Amazing grace! How sweet the sound

That saved a wretch like me!

I once was lost, but now am found Was blind, but now I see.

Lyrics by John Newton
