Rest in the Sacred Space

Rest in the Sacred Space

~Copyright 2015 Diana Rasmussen

Some days I have nothing to say
I can rest in our sacred space
Knowing that your love covers me
and You will lead the way
I trust Your Word my Lord
to your promises I cling
I’ve said my prayers and
I’ve held my tongue
Your peace and presence
Now You’ll bring

peace 9

Have you not known?
Have you not heard?
The everlasting God, the Lord,
The Creator of the ends of the earth,
Neither faints nor is weary.
His understanding is unsearchable.

He gives power to the weak,
And to those who have no might He increases strength.
Even the youths shall faint and be weary,
And the young men shall utterly fall,

But those who wait on the Lord
Shall renew their strength;
They shall mount up with wings like eagles,
They shall run and not be weary,
They shall walk and not faint. (Isaiah 40:28-31 NKJV)

Called by the Maker of the Stars – NaPoWriMo 2015 Day 2

It is that time again friends. NaPoWriMo 2015 – 30 poems in 30 days! I love this challenge!

Here is todays challenge:

NaPoWriMo – Day 2

And now, our (as always, optional) prompt, provided to us by NaPoWriMo participant Carla Jones. Today, I challenge you to take your gaze upward, and write a poem about the stars. You may find inspiration in this website that lists constellations, while also providing information on the myths associated with each one, as well as other salient information. Your poem could be informed by those myths or historical details, by the shapes or names of the constellations, or by childhood memories of seeing them. Any form or style will do.

Happy writing!

CALLED BY THE MAKER OF THE STARS

woman with stars

You knew me before I was born

You knit me together in the womb

You knew the paths I would take

You called me out of darkness into light

You renew my mind and my heart

You know my ways and my name

Called by the Maker of the Stars

Lift up your eyes and see. Who has made these stars? It is the One Who leads them out by number. He calls them all by name. Because of the greatness of His strength, and because He is strong in power, not one of them is missing. (Isaiah 40:26 NLV)

CARRY ME
©2013 Diana Rasmussen

Looking for the real me
a girl who is free to be
I’ve worn so many masks
trying to please

Let me run and not get tired
Let me walk and not fall behind
Renew my strength
Carry me on Eagles wings

I’ll rise above these trials
Spread my wings and fly
Ascend into the heavens
Laugh like a little child

Let me run and not get tired
Let me walk and not fall behind
Renew my strength
Carry me on Eagles wings

Life isn’t what I thought it would be
God of Angel Armies – carry me

Let me run and not get tired
Let me walk and not fall behind
Renew my strength
Carry me on Eagles wings
