Footsteps in the Garden

Idle talk 

Can you walk the walk?

Some days are strange

Can’t handle the change

Bad fruit on the vine

But I say I am fine


Pluck the weeds

To cover up my greed

And idle hands

And unmet plans 

God, where are You?

Will you make my heart anew?


I hear your footsteps in the garden 

I hope my heart doesn’t harden

But I am scared

And underprepared 

But You say, “I take you as you are”

I will be with you no matter if you travel far

The Power of Scripture

For the Lord takes delight in his people; he crowns the humble with victory

Blessed are the pure in heart for God they will see

A man’s heart plans his way, But the Lord will direct his steps 

I will exalt you, Lord, for you lifted me out of the depths 


We can’t do anything without the power of Scripture

He is our peace and blessed assurance

Without Him we wouldn’t be content and pure

He gives love and life insurance 

Your word is a lamp to my feet

Let patient ever have its perfect work, 

That you lacking nothing and may be perfect and complete

By His promised Holy Spirit seal you were marked


We can’t do anything without the power of the Word

It’s sharper than any two-edged sword

You want peace but your life is blurred

Remember Jesus by whose wounds you were 

cured


Blessed are the peacemakers, for they will be called children of God

I am comforted by Your staff and rod

Man looks at the outward appearance but God looks at the heart

If you are lost, then the Bible is a great place to start

Mother Earth, Where Are You?

Mother Earth, Where are You?

This sandy air has no moisture to it

I feel the coming rage

Slumped shoulders bring war

Started by the chaos of a plague


If I have committed sins

I have asked for forgiveness

But I see Pharaoh

Judgement is imminent, nevertheless


I won the lottery

A chance of a lifetime

To be enslaved

You think I have it made


I see people not smile

It breaks my very core

I see the political system in upheaval

My praying knees are so feeble


This world is changing again

But for the worst

A pregnant planet

Whose sick baby is coming forth


So speedy and slick

When left to our own devices

We are weak and scared

Only holding it up closer in a crisis


No, I do care

Do you care that I have tended this garden of life?

I feel desperation coming through

Mother Earth, where are you?

Statues of Old (Everything will Eventually be Fine)

As the leaves fall like a forgotten dream

You think you knew the answers

Now nothing is as it seems

You crush the leaves into tiny parts

Reminiscent of your remorse


Statutes of old will crumble

Business of polish will stall

Religious traditions will break

So our hearts will awake 


Can you see what’s happening?

We are being poured from the inside out?

Are we preaching what we are practicing?

It takes time for the planets to align

Trust me, everything will be eventually be fine


(C) Carly Wiggins 2022

Jesus Healed During Sabbath

Jesus Healed During Sabbath

Jesus cleaned feet

He said it’s hard for the rich

To enter the Kingdom of God

This statement my seem flawed

But our hearts must be submitted

The lowly will rise

While the high will no longer be lifted 

He threw tables of the pretend

And to those who follow Him

He is your forever friend 


This answer is plain

He knows every intention

At every village He didn’t heal

He knew what their hearts concealed

But He said healing during Sabbath is fine 

He came to bind up the broken hearted

He said He’ll leave the 99 for the one any time

And He welcome the prodigals home

God looks to and fro the earth

He looks for obedient hearts

With a hunger coming forth

Care what God Says about You

Trust what God says about you more than what man says!

Fear of man will prove to be a snare, but whoever trusts in the Lord is kept safe.

Proverbs 29:5 NIV


When they measure themselves by themselves and compare themselves with themselves they are not wise. 2 Corinthians 10:12 NIV


Silence the negative talks in your head and know the Lord is for you! The world is loud and distracting but God’s voice is gentle and comforting!
