The Island Calls

I long to see
God's glory in a face
Met with death
Untimely, in a place
Where evil, rampant,
Rules by rule alone;
Dispensing justice
As a privilege honed.
Arrogant, proud,
The island calls:
'Why should I care
Who takes the fall?'

He Makes Us Whole

The journey, long before us,
Lies in wait,
Challenging our fears.
Will time abate
The doubts invading thoughts?
Will God control?
Only, when we let Him
Make us whole.

The train calls me forward;
Tells me, "Don't look back!
Trust in the journey
Forward!"  Room for slack?
Not on this watch
Where perils deftly lie,
And, lay in wait for those
Who question and defy.
Convenient answers strewn
Like wedding petals tossed
Fecklessly, carelessly scattered,
At feet of bride, then lost.
My journey, like no other.
Resounding trains, still calling,
Heart quickens to the sound;
Soul knows:  I'm not failing.
I'm redeemed.  I am found.
