“Eyes to God” worship prose from LWillows

Journeye

Eyes to God…

When life has taken fateful tolls
I have seen the dust and lifted console.
Eyes to God and footprints on the hill,
I wearied on but with a gritted will.

It is not clear that heaven is near
when all about is a clouded veneer.
The earth may quake beneath my feet
yet miracles shine through such hours of defeat.

With no one to call or place to find Home
the Heart redefines that which is its Own.
Amaze me once more, as I look above
Eyes to God, all footprints in Love.

“The Days of the Miraculous”…..by Linda Willows

Oh Lord, when you act, you awe us, you thrill,
miracles multiply, spinning out of Your will.
How you astound all that lives, all you hold…
the fruits of Your Love for the world to behold.

Glory leaps as we near, to revere All that holds,
our own lives in Your care, in such veins of Heart bold.
We witness You hallowed in a shrine of Love’s light…
Yet more, Father more than our mere eyes have as sight.

In the Glory, we wake and see a dewdrop reflect
a rainbow from Heaven in its reverent depth.
How much more can it be that you carry us through
All the days of life’s miraculous, wonders’ to view.
