Dust And Smoke

To the Sermon On The Mount and a life that wants to be built on the rock of Christ. And to not be held back by the past.

Dust and Smoke

Kicking my feet in the sand

Trying to understand

Years of running

Days of staying


Flame of love once came

And saved the wasted

Space in me, took up a

New secret place in He


Regrets he had over

Having in bad, a trapped

Life he lived stuck by

Stereo sounds and

TV real loud


And upheaval came at

A young age, and wrote a

A new page inside of me,

I lived on the top of the

Stairs, considering all the

Fears, anger rose inside

A child and smoke came

And burned it all away


Oil now, do you have it?

Intimacy, have you grabbed it?

Does your house collect

Dust, does your life have

Lust? Every thought he

Says stays captive in Him

Every word uttered is

Recorded in Him,


Now counsel comes and

Rules me now, have a life

That isn’t shallow or a

Noisy gong that is



Love come and not be dust

Burn away the rust

Cause me to trust

Now I seek to live

On the rocks where

The sand can’t stand

On the land you have
