Saturday, First Week in Advent

Jesus said to them, “Have you never read in the scriptures:
‘The stone that the builders rejected
has become the cornerstone;
this was the Lord’s doing,
and it is amazing in our eyes’? (Psalm 118)
--Matthew 21:42

You Are Amazing

You are amazing…

In many ways and…
Everyday you nudge me to wake,
You mold and you make,
my day a delight
and in my fight,
You stand beside me
You override me,
and You win the battle for me,
because You love me.
You define love like no human being can;
I can’t understand
how You continually command
a presence of love and care.
You are always aware of my fears
and you keep Your mind there to bear the burden of my troubles.
You find me in the rubble and You pull me from the debris, and now I see.

You are amazing…

You’re never fading
from my sight.
It just wouldn’t be right,
someone would have to take You from me with all of their might
and reach a new height of fight.
They just don’t know how much You mean to me,
You seem to me,
to be everpresent,
and never a lesser extent of what Your true being is,
You handle Your biz.
You being absent from my breathing would be a reason to cede,
a reason to plead for a second chance in this life to enhance.
And I ask that You prance in my presence with Your grace,
and replace this new sorrow that I have grown,
make it unknown to me,
when You're done I want to be a new person with all the past pains erased
me being able to face a new night not scared of the plight, or how the pain cries, and I realize.

You are amazing…

From beginning to days end
You woe me
and not only put me at a stand still,
You keep me going.
You’re always knowing
who I am at core, and I find myself asking for more of your time,
to be near the nature of Your sublime.
You can find me looking for You in the things that I do in lieu of the bewilderment
I stay focused on You.
When I lay down I feel so relieved because You have put me at ease.
You paint my mind with dreams and my soul leans on you for support
with any sort of problem that comes its way.
The last thing that I’ll say is that You continually please us,
and I dearly thank You Jesus.

You are amazing.
