I Gaze Upon the Promise

I gaze upon the promise.
Do hearts, true, perceive?
Unsure if valiant words,
Their brave joust reveals
To unsuspecting souls
The measure of His time
Defying passing moments.
Alone, but never lonely,
My words spin and weave
Winsome web alluring.
I gaze upon the promise.
Does my heart, true, perceive?

Foolish I look and foolish I stand
As my words, earnest, fumble.
The right thing?  Lord, I pray
Your honest Word keeps me humble;
Sets me true on arrow's way,
To mend the aching hearts that stray
Upon a path I once thought clear.
Not sure, I am, pointing the way
For those, in heart, I hold so dear.
Yet, they are here, calling, calling,
But with You, I don't fear falling.
Reassured that You are near,
I will continue, even here,
And trust, though my heart breaks.
Your love will grant me all it takes
To play the fool and make the fumble;
All it takes to make me humble.

Walking with the two in cool of evening
Eve and Adam naked, hearts at one
With yours.  Father, Friend, Creator, who
Declared Creation 'good' when it was done.
Walk among us, heaven's feet on earth.
Bring your kingdom though we fall and fail.
Leave within our hearts the only footprint
Worthy.  May, through us, Your love prevail.

Love Divine

Upon whose coattails have I ridden
And who has ridden on mine;
Because by grace we dream same dreams
Inspired by love divine?
