    SOFT SCOOP



     

                I'm wrestling with the ice cream
                Inside this soft scoop box
                My spoon is bent,my patience spent
                I'm trying to outfox
                The barrier before me
                To get my just dessert
                I'll hack at that unyielding mass
                No matter what the hurt.

                But hey,where is my patience
                Why don't I let it melt
                Surely it will taste the same
                If time and me both dwelt
                Perhaps this is my problem
                Too hasty in my ways
                A Martha living in my skin
                To be a Mary pays.

                So if I wait upon The Lord
                Instead of rushing it
                And let us melt together
                In a fusion,we will knit
                A tasty time of bonding
                And one that satisfies
                Oh Lord,please give me patience
                To delight in Your surprise.

    TORTOISE



                        
                       I am a tortoise,look at my shell,
                 Hiding me from outside hell,
                 Inside is a writhing mess,
                 Not what you'd expect,I guess,
                 Peeping out and feeling scared,
                 Doing things because I'm dared,
                 People think I am so brave,
                 But it's peace of mind I crave,
                

                 I'm a jelly,tall and bold,
                 As long as I am in my mould,
                 Need the form of strength and shape,
                 From my prison to escape,
                 Have to find another way,
                 Drop this mask that hides decay,
                 Cry out bravely,for some aid,
                 Someone come,I'm so afraid.

                 Lord,You are the only hope,
                 Prop me up,so I can cope,
                 Help me lay the lot on You,
                 Not by works,but faith in You,
                 You're my strength,my every step,
                 Give me vigour,give me pep,
                 Sticking closely to Your voice,
                 May You ever be my choice.

    MIRE




                   

            When you’re deep in the mire
            And you start to perspire
            The devil is laughing at you
            You have gone your own way
            Now you’re starting to pay
            And there doesn’t seem any way through.

            You have led your own life
            And it’s ended in strife
            But you’re too proud to ask for some aid
            It can only get worse
            As you scream and you curse
            You are feeling alone and afraid.

            The answer is clear
            There is One who is near
            And He’s ready to take all the weight
            You must swallow your pride
            And in Him must confide
            Before you leave it too late.

            So give up the fight
            Relax, be contrite
            Ask Jesus back into your world
            Let Him sort you out
            Rejoice and be stout
            Let His future for you be unfurled.

    MEASURE



                                           

                   What is the measure you give to The Lord
                   Will you release all the wealth you have stored
                   Are you afraid that you haven’t enough
                   Your stash lying idle for when times get tough
                   Have you got gifts that The Lords given you
                   Help to be given to those in a stew
                   Or can’t you be bothered to pass on your time
                   To people in crisis with mountains to climb
                   For the measure you give is the measure you get
                   Your earthly possessions will turn into debt
                   And all you’ll have left is the judges distain
                   Cause you’ve hidden your talent from heavenly gain
                   So trust in The Lord and be free with your wealth
                   His blessings will keep you in bountiful health
                   Store up your treasure in heaven and see
                   The good that you’ve done for the kingdom to be.

    WHO AM I ?



                      

              Who am I, I hear you ask
              Peering from my vacuum flask
              Snug and safe from all intrusion   
              No ingression, no confusion
              Allow you near to know my name   
              Light specifics is my game
              Try to rummage, I invert   
              Raise my shield to stop the hurt.

              Fear and envy clothe my soul   
              But the past has taken toll   
              I’m a jelly easily shaken   
              Worth and confidence forsaken       
              Come on in, but stay away   
              I’m not brave enough today   
              All this talk of God is fine   
              But He’s not a friend of mine.

              Why?, if He created me   
              Did He forget to oversee   
              The blooming of this butterfly   
              Free to live and touch the sky   
              Someone who is not afraid   
              To be an equal, debts all paid   
              Open, friendly, loving, kind
              Patient, tender, clear of mind.

              Come, Lord Jesus, break this mold   
              Breathe Your warmth into this cold   
              Draw me from the shadows deep   
              Shine Your light upon this creep   
              I want beauty, I want joy   
              Oh to be Your little boy   
              Start Your journey to my soul   
              Before the darkness takes its toll.
