Life’s Meaning

 

I have felt pressure,
I have known pain;

The darkening sun,
The advancement of rain;

Meaning of Life

 

The drops of doubt,
The sting of fear;

The awful regrets,
The loss of ones dear;

And I have wondered,
The reasons why;

The pangs of pain sting,
And the woes of hearts cry;

But then I remembered,
The awakening within;

The dawning of love,
The forgiveness of sin;

And I came to accept,
And to understand;

That all of our days,
Are held in God’s hands;

The good and the bad,
The struggles, the strife;

Are all building blocks,
A composite of life;

For it is the passions,
The pains, the chagrin;

That have made me seek light,
To find hope once again!

Take Time To Know Me

I am here, child;
Take time to know Me;

All of creation
Exists to behold Me;

My essence is found
In the beauty of spring;

I sprinkled the dust
On the butterflies’ wings;

I painted the skies
With brushstrokes of blue;

I did this for Me
And I did this for you;

I made the grass green
Under your feet;

I blessed you with children,
Their kisses so sweet;

I sprinkled stars
In the darkness of night;

So you would not fear,
You would still see My light;

I admire your beauty
As you mature and grow;

There’s so much I wish for you,
Want you to know;

Be still; hear My whisper
In the soft, blowing breeze;

“I love you, my precious child;
Take time to know Me.”
