Blessed Happenstance

No coincidence

Never accidentally

Bless-ed happenstance

Ordained by God who directs

Steps, path of all who seek him

Proverbs 16:9
A man’s heart plans his course, but the LORD determines his steps.

Safe Place I Know

Burrowing fast into what I KNOW

Place that’s safe from Enemy’s

Tampering acid of doubt scratches

Faith’s bright polish and corrodes

Foundation, layer by layer; acts of

Hacking, despair rolls o’er soul

Like road machinery; fears pelt in

Style of Old Testament hail storm.

Sad world, this…seems paltry justice

To spare; endless drought of love

Kindness; and small measures, brief

Peace costs hard-earned fortune

Taxing each generation.

I hide, must abide, in cleft of Rock—

God is my shield, in Him I trust; His

Promise-filled Word is true.

Youthful, I knew You

Only from far cold distance

With exceeding fear…

You followed me; led, through years

Now so near, You live in heart

Safe in Love’s embrace

I faith-walk in Your grace-light

Lord God Almighty
