Watching

All my life I've heard
That Jesus is coming back.
Could be any moment.
Could be any time.
I've waited,
I've watched.

As rumors flew through history
Muddling people's minds.
Is it ever happening?
Is it in our lifetime?
We've waited,
We've watched.

Currently more signs come true
Awareness is on high alert.
Is it today?
Is it tomorrow?
We're waiting,
We're watching.

Seems like evil is winning
Casting God and His people out.
Will they succeed?
Will they not?
We're still waiting
We're still standing.

Should the worse happen,
Lord, don't let me wimp out.
May my lips praise,
May I follow to the end.
I'm waiting,
I'm watching.
I'm ready.

Infinity in Him

image
Before there was the universe,
You looked over a vast,
Dark,
Empty,
Void—
And saw potential.

From the depths of Your mind,
Possibility pushed limits,
Chemistry,
Hope,
Difference—
Creativity unleashed abundantly.

So You waved Your hands,
Your thoughts became reality,
Planets spun,
Moons orbited,
Sun formed—
Earth came into existence.

Then You saw Earth and You knew,
Here You’d let Yourself shine,
Oceans,
Mountains,
Animals—
And man created in Your image.

Somewhere at that time when,
You blew breath into Adam,
You saw me,
You knew me,
You believed—
You never paused or hestitated.

All of humanity is infinity inside You,
Inseparable except by our choice,
We walk,
You remain,
Forever hopeful—
We’ll return to God our very beginning.

Every person and place and experience,
You’ve known before time began,
We know,
Right from wrong,
You are love—
We decide acceptance or rejection.

You took a vast darkness of nothing,
Created a universe still in part unexplored,
Amazing,
Intricate,
Delicate yet not—
Your finest work in man including me.

Please take me now so imperfect,
Scars, warts, life of sin,
Repurpose,
Remodel,
Refine—
Be sure I’m totally sold out for You.
