There are moments in life where everything makes sense. Split moments when the universe is aligned with a window into God's plans. But not only his plans, you feel as if you have a story and you see his hand writing, knowing there's more. You feel important, seen, known by your maker in the fullest sense. This moment is just that. A moment. There are no seconds to it. Just one slight understanding that you're not forgotten. An understanding that no one can give you this moment. An understanding that you were made to live in a moment like this for eternity when that little window will become a home you dwell in. If you don't understand this moment you haven't had it. Your time will come. And when it does don't try to grasp the meaning of your life, because in a split second that same meaning will change. Just grasp the hand that created it and hold on for the rest. And moment by moment you will learn of his sweetness, you will learn of his love, his delight in you, and most importantly his never ending grace that keeps extending through these windows. Never because of something you did, never because of who you are. But only because of one truth that whether you are near or far to him remains certain. You were created for him, by him, and whether you use your moments to know him is up to you.

When Life Seems To Cater

With my eyes set on you there's no left or no right
No bridges to cross just your hands on both sides

And I'll think of us in this way when I waver 
In thought or in action, when life seems to cater 

The fears, the what ifs, the lonely feel 
Of no hands to trust or arms to seem real

I'll remember how far you've brought me to know
In my life I've never been left alone

Every night I felt you, and felt your need
To tell me our story with memories

Setting my thoughts in truth
 As conviction resets the course 

I cling to the wholeness your breath came to restore
To speak to my soul and make known

The worth of my heart 
Is the love it will hold
