mountain mover

Mountain Mover

Imposing mountains loom,
Casting dark shadows
Blocking light needed to bloom
Night and fear enclose,
Sun eclipsed,
Losing hope,
Summits appear firmly fixed.

Oh but who is He?
The one who spoke creation
The one who parts the sea
The one who sets foundations

The story writer
The one who makes a way
The one who is our lamplighter
Who on the cross his love was displayed

He is the mountain mover
He dispels the blackness
He holds the future
He wipes tears and turns mourning into gladness.

He is the father that walks beside
He is the holy one enthroned above
He is the one who changes the tide
His power is more than enough

He is our inner peace
He is our sheltering fortress
In him our strivings cease
In him we are found faultless

He is the one who moves the mountains,
Who with a word, sets the stars in place.
He offers living water from his fountain
And pours out upon us, unending grace.

He is the one the hills bow down to.
He is the mountain mover.

water ballet

Impossible crossing
Endless waves spanning the expanse
Pillars deposited creating uneasy trail through the depths
Journey looms
Solitary artist

Dancer joined by Ageless prince
Clumsy Tentative steps
Hand outstretched, arms reaching
Commence Adagio for the Pas de deux
Pirouettes gracefully atop posts

Unsteady misstep
 Fall from place
Dancing paused
Patient partner waiting
Muscles stretched

Ballet resumes
Arabesque followed by Grand Jete’
 Lifting, turning and leaping
Finding safe landing amidst watery route
Ever moving towards grand finale

 Ballet Master, Choreographer and partner
Guiding in effortless Artistic dance of life
Ungainly wanderer turned nimble ballerina

Proverbs 3 :5-6 Trust in the LORD with all your heart. Never rely on what you think you know. Remember the LORD in everything you do, and he will show you the right way.
