The City 

Standard

If you look left of tge CN Tower, perhaps you’ll see one of the two stars I could spot from my hotel window tonight.

When we make

Our lights

So bright

We can’t see

Your stars

In the night

Then we have

No reference

At all

 

When we make

Our walls

So tall

We can’t see

Your sun

At all

Then we always

Walk in

Shadows

 

Oh LORD,

You are the light

We need

Your reference

In the night

 

Oh LORD,

You are the sun

We need

Your radiance

In sight

 

I can’t imagine

Myself with

No reference

In the shadows

 

Break my city lights.

Tear down my city walls

 

I want

Your direction

 

I want

To see

Your glory

After reflection of the night sky here tonight, my heart aches for the thousands of lost people in Toronto. Those who don’t know their Maker. My heart aches for those who don’t have the Light of Jesus all the way across this land. But my heart also aches that I build my own walls and shine my own light instead of living fully alive for Him, and not truly reflecting enough of His glory in my words and in my actions to those around me. How much more should I know Him and follow His guidance? I think there is a correlation between these two dilemmas in my Christian walk.

 Luke 22:29-46
 "Consider him who endured from sinners such hostility against himself,
 so that you may not grow weary or fainthearted. In your struggle against
 sin you have not yet resisted to the point of shedding your blood." 
 ~Hebrews 12:3-4

September Sunrise

Standard

standing on The Rock
listening to The Sun rising
my heart calmly singsphoto 1

the changing colours
and the passing sea lions
i pause to see Life

The Sun takes it’s time
for The Light cannot be rushed
warmth penetrates slow

the moon’s reflection
bows to true Light’s glory
crowning the morning

creation whispers
be still and hear nature’s voice
speak the things of God

Forgive

Standard
He who has no sin
 Be the first to throw
 A stone
 But there's not a lone
 Soul who could undergo
 The penalty due him
No one will tarry
 They'll leave and not linger
 Stop accusation
 Release condemnation
 They won't point a finger
 Dropping the rocks aimed at the quarry
The measure you use will be yours too
 It's time to remove your own plank
 Do not judge
 Hold no grudge
 Rather humbly give thanks
 Trespasses aren't held against you
Forgive men their sins
 As the Father has done
 Love mercy
 Act worthy
 Believe in His Son
 A forgiver always wins

one thing

Standard

living in the state of
one thing
realizing that
one thing
is everything
keeping that
one thing
in every frame
living for the
one thing
all the same
it’s the only
one thing
required
and it’s the
one thing
that gives
rest to the tired
what is the
one thing?
it is listening
it is devotion
it is receiving
the better portion
