How Can a God?

How can a God be so patient —
Waiting, waiting,
Until I’m ready to receive Him.

How can a God be so loving,
Despite the weeds of sin
In the garden of my life?

How can a God suffer for us
When we cause Him
So much suffering?

How can a God die for us?
The answer must be —
So that we can live with Him.

Can You Hear Jesus?

Can you hear Jesus?
His voice so gently calls.
I hear Him in the crashing waves,
In clear, bright mornings,
In darker days.

Can you hear Jesus calling?
He wants to own your heart.
Can you hear Him in the wind?
The fresh, cool breeze?
The Voice within?

Can I hear Jesus speaking?
Or is my heart too deaf?
Will I turn away from Him,
Let call grow dim, or
Let Him wash away my sin?

Can we hear Jesus speaking?
And let us meet one day,
On other side,
Without our pride —
He patiently abides.

Love is Calling

Love is patient,
Love is kind —
Let God’s love possess your mind.

Love’s not boasting,
Love’s not proud —
Let us sing His praises loud.

Love’s not jealous,
Love’s not rude —
With forgiveness it’s imbued.

Love rejoices
In the truth —
Love forever does endure.

Love doesn’t give up,
It doesn’t lose faith —
It’s never early, never late.

Always hopeful,
Always free —
Love is our true destiny.
