New Year

Wash over me
Waves come crashing, rains come falling down
New waters, refreshing
Drought is ending

The thirsty can drink
No need to thirst anymore
Be renewed in this
Be revived in this

Spring up oh well
Can you feel it?
In your heart, you’re overflowing
What you thought was dry is drenched

Can you see death in the land around you?
Because all I see is teaming with green
This land is alive, well, and free
It has not let you down yet

Welcome to a new year
A new life
Be refreshed
This drought is ending


Heaven touches earth
And the light is green

Walking in fear of the next step
Yet you take it
Come so far out
Walking on water
Afraid of drowning
Though he’s taught you to swim

Anyway he’s taken you
Out into the unknown
Out of the wilderness
Can you see the promised land?

Bask in this
No longer suffocating
Fresh start

Heaven touches earth
Standing in the center of it all
Can you feel it?

It washes over you
Every time you close your eyes
Give up your life
This is what trust is

Nothing is familiar
Bathe in the unfamiliar
You belong here
You belong here
You belong here

In the intersection
Where heaven touches earth
The light is green
And you’ve stepped forward

Finding Home

I can’t help but notice the difference
Even in the sameness of it all
It comes falling with a crashing sound
One that echoes through the trees
Singing peacefully to my ears
Letting me know that I can be home here

I need to be somewhere green, He said
Because your words are like water
They bring life

So my home can be anywhere
Because my life can go anywhere
And that will always be exciting

I’ll do my best not to push you all away
Please know I accept you
Don’t feel you need to be invited into my world

Invite yourself in
And I’ll try so hard to invite myself in
We are not alone in this

Try to look at me and see something magical
Because I want to look at you and see miracles
My life is changing before my very eyes
You can watch it too
If you were only looking

I don’t want to be captured
Because I feel that might expose me
Like I might have something to hide
Even though I don’t

This is who I am
And I am home here
