West Texas Juniper/Mesquite on Alabaster       Height 23"



Storms of circumstances

waves of “if” and “then”

unrelenting in their promise,

that tomorrow is my end.


If anchored in the sands

 of things that I now see,

my life will surely blow off course,

wreck, and sink beneath the sea.


Yet God shows His hand now present

and gives me eyes to see,

 that despite the fury of the storm,

He is right here next to me.


Jesus is there in the future

just past the veil of time,

this Hope the anchor of the soul

the strength I seek to find.


Endurance for the race

doesn’t grow on glassy seas,

the discipline of storms

is what forms this gift in me.

By fixing firm my eyes

on Him Who endured the shame,

of laying down His life for me,

so that I might do the same.

Hebrews 6:19 Hebrew 12:1-3
