Laid open under the sky is the
hillside, like The Bible on my desk.
Barren and lifeless it appears.
Is that also how I see Godís Word for me?
From a distance it is useless,

what if I drew closer to it?
if I were to examine it?

I wonder, would I find?
effort is immense, more obstacles then I imagined.
going is harsh,
so many other things Iíd rather be doing.
so many distractions.

there is life here!
from a distance,
once in it, there is so much life to be found!
water, such sweet tasting, fulfilling springs of water!

beauty, this wonder, this paradise.
is a miracle. So much here to
around me is growth to keep me,
feed me, to feed others, all others, everybody.
will share what I have found,

You Lord God for Your Word.
You Lord Jesus for Your love.
the way You make me feel by Your Word,
Iíll go over to that hillside
see what it has to show me.
