The blue waters,
The green trees,
The blue skies,
The light breeze,
The crisp air,
The birds sing,
The puffed clouds;

R ealizing I am not above trouble...
I am human to a fault...
D ecisions in life to be crossed...
G od knows my life stands at the alter...
E ternity is my bridge over troubled water...
O ver Troubled Water...

R ivers of troubled water will take place...
T roubled Water...
R eality sinks in, through the flow of the river...
O nly that can be seen, by the unseen eye...
U nderneath the bridge there lies...
B eneath the waters that flow...

E very decision that can be made over...
D ecides our destiny through troubled waters...

E ternity, forever illuminated by the living Christ...

Contest...Bridge Over Troubled Water
It ripples and waves.
Its soothing to the touch and it runs over your body like an invisible blanket.
When life is too much to take I run to the water.
I've thought about lost loved ones over the view of the ocean.
As the waves ran over my toes and pulled back it was as if God was telling me I'm here.
I see your pain. I see your passion. In time I will wash them away.
When it rains, it stirs something inside of my heart. I know that as this storm shall pass, so will the trials of life.
The pain will be washed away. All will grow new again.
Pain is water.
Joy is water.
Life it water.
Water is beauty.
With each stone,
A certain size,
A distinct color,
Water flows gracefully
Over each backbone of the brook.
Along the brook,
The water is pristine,
Yet calm and quiet,
Rolling over stones
And pebbles, the water streams into
A natural spring.
The spring dwells
Offering life after passing.
Jesus Gives Living Water!
Perhaps your feel as if you life has “run dry.”
Nothing that you’ve tried has satisfied…
Perhaps you feel as if any love has “dried up.”
You may feel like you want to give up?
God’s words tell us some words we can live by.
Jesus gives living water, that’ll never run dry!
He gives living water that nourishes the soul.
And offers completeness to make us whole!
His water is eternal and brings hope within!
It feeds the soul of man, and will never end!
Won’t you come and drink of this water so pure?
A new life in Christ, can be yours… For sure!
His pure water can quench the thirst of man.
There’s nothing too hard for Jesus to understand!
He loves us so much and is alive this hour!
Won’t you drink from his life changing power?
Hallelujah to Christ! The soon and coming king!
A complete love and peace is what he brings!
Thank you Jesus! For your mercy and love!
Please quench our hearts, from heaven above!
The water from Jesus gives life everlasting!
He offers it to everyone! Just for the asking!

Do not disturb the water
The man once said to me
for those who've tried are no more
They spoke of love and life once lived
A place called home, where all was his
It all burnt away, he said with a tear
and all i'm left with is this empty fear
As you see my friend we've much in common
But theres once major difference
you're not in a coffin
So feel free to take a swim
Test the waters he said with a grin
for I see you know which way to go
Dont make me push you in
The process to make Holy Water is no big secret.
You just plain and simply boil the Hell out of it.
Have my peccant daydreams seep away
Purged from my mind devoid all delay
Evaporate those thoughts like the mist
Wring as a sponge, oh LORD, with a twist
Have me absorb ideas you adore
Blessed visions soak deep to the core
Living water so pure for my soul
Please, fill me up, each pore, every hole
My thoughts are wrong, so done be your will
Your providence is far greater still
So, God, exchange, my sin with your grace
Each transgression, remove every trace
Though my frail mind compels me to turn
With drowning pain, my life, you did earn.
Hard may be the paths that are given to us
Harder still they may be, when we choose not their way
Yet, to abide to them we shall, always without any fuss
For we are after all lost, blind and we need to find our way!
This way that we do seek, is it not known as the end
The end word known as death, the end of life and love
If death be the end, then pray we do have faith on a ready stand
Of course, life, at the scent of water does evolve!
Holy water, sprouting from the root of mystery
Pray do come and lead us all
Take us there where all is holy
Where always we hear songs of the choral!
Life does not end with death, life gets renewed
In this world, or another, by the Holy One, it is always brewed!
the land's waterfalls
majestic triumph of Our God
Jesus in spray
