the miracle
of your unfathomable love eternal.
how can I seek to understand this
it is beyond me
I can only wonder
in awestruck amazement.
Beyond the universe
this love calls to my heart
Outside of all time and space
mercy cries forgiveness
to this broken life.
Hope triumphant
rises to crown creation
with life.
grace enfolds
the frailest heart.

I wish you love,
I wish you peace.
I wish your soul
sweet hope and release.

Where fears may rise
in darkness' night

I wish you love,

I wish you peace.

A simple poem for a poet friend

my mind is overflowing with questions.
once upon a time I would have chased them away
but now I welcome them.
The more I seek answers
the more answers I'll find
I do not want my faith to lie lazily in a Sunday pew
I cannot bring myself to rise up in moral outrage,
I am far to flawed for that.
all in all my hope clings to a tenuous trust
in spiritual reality,
a reality that reaches
my darkest moments
and my frailest fears.
This is the God I seek.
One who will wrestle with my doubts,
revealing himself outside my expectations,
challenging all I hold dear
