Tsunami

Colleen Livingston

A tsunami tide can change your life,
Destroying everything there was.
But if you let it do its work,
You will find strength to rise above.

A tsunami tide can shift your life,
Rinsing lust out from your ears.
Rattling and settling all things straight,
Igniting hope in what is left down here.

Where else can you turn your heart?
When everything is washed away.
A tsunami tide can change your life,
Causing you to bow down and pray.

"I once was a big time business man!"
"I had it all, a man could dream!"
A tsunami tide it changed my life,
It faded by and went down stream.

"A wife and kids I once did have!"
"But what I had now, yes, is gone!"
A tsunami tide it took my life,
A new one, in Christ, I’ve found.

In Christ I place my trust in life,
I cleave to what I know.
Inside my heart was struck in time,
To walk this path I now will grow.

My priorities in life have changed,
Everything is washed, I’m saved.
A tsunami came and changed my life,
My life I’ve died, to Christ I gave.

So take me now, eternal stride,
I bow now at His name.
A tsunami tide has changed my life,
I no longer live in shame.

At a Glance

Colleen Livingston

A tide has shifted if you look;
You can catch it at a glance.
A lot more people who were blind;
Yes, they can see the King at last.

The air is clear now you can see;
His bride’s preparing who to be.
She looks a lot like Mary did;
Before she gave birth to the King.

Clothed in the sun she’s wearing;
Twelve stars above her head.
Adorned in precious jewels;
Worn across communed in bread.

To gather all His sheep;
She’s waiting patiently for Him.
He’s fast anticipating for;
The wedding feast, yes, to begin.

"Oh my!" He shouts from chambers.
"How I long to see my bride!"
Awaiting longing hours;
To dance as one with her in stride.

A match that’s made in heaven;
Yes none other you can find.
It’s best to tell this secret;
These two lovers are divine.

"Amen!" He shouts with glory.
Alpha Omega, is His name;
"I’ve come to gather all my saints;"
"To join and march with Me in fame."

Arise oh saints! It’s time to march!
Arise the time is here!
It’s time to give it all to Him!
The Lord is whom we fear!

A golden chalice of His blood;
We’ll drink in honor of our King.
Pure and spotless is your bride;
Lord, such beauty she will sing.


Wheat Worthy

Wheat Worthy

Colleen Livingston

I want to be found worthy;
To be standing on that Day.
To be lifted up with You on high;
Sharpened sickle reaping grain.

I want to be wheat worthy;
Enduring cross in hand this day.
In union with the Christ, our Lord;
To be wheat worthy, Lord, I pray.

I ran across a field,
Filled with amber waves of grain.
It struck my heart so deeply;
Down my knees I wept to say.

"Lord God of Hosts You’re worthy!"
"Giving us the chance to stay!"
"Right by Your side union;
Standing with you on that Day."

To be found worthy of Your wheat;
Removing all the muck and mire.
I resign my life on earth here Lord;
Eternity with You desired.

I want to be found worthy;
Removing all that keeps me bound.
So on that Day you’ll lift me up;
Not tasting death, rather life renowned.

I’ll fill my lamp now full with oil;
Not drying out for just one min.
I want to be found worthy;
To be your bride at the wedding din.

I want to be found worthy;
Of Your wheat through thick and thin.
When others come to knock me down;
I will turn my other chin.

To be wheat worthy on that Day;
This is all I long to be.
I’ll give You all my life in stride;
Pure and spotless made for Thee.

“Over the top!” The world may mock.
No matter what they say is true;
I want to be found wheat worthy, Lord.
I’m only out to be one with You.

So lift your hands up high!
And shout His name!
His victory is here!
Lord God of Hosts is ready now;
To reap His wheat He loves so dear.

Gather all the harvest’s ready!
Gather all Your bride You’ve longed!
She’s paved the way without delay;
Next to You she’ll stand with crown.

I want to be found wheat worthy;
Upon a Rock I’ll stand and shout;
Amen and Halleluiah!
To the One upon that cloud!

Tethering in the wind He rides;
Sharp sword He comes at last!
White horse He rides as King;
He strides and reigns above the rest!

Amen to the One I Love

Amen to the One I Love

Colleen Livingston

Jesus Christ, the Holy One
Has come to show the way;
We’ll reign with Him victorious
And stand on that Great Day.

He picked us now to walk with Him
To light the lamp and pray;
To let it shine across the globe
To march through rough terrain.

To lay it down and pave the way
Is what we’re called to do;
No need to fret this time has come
He’ll guide us through and through.

The desires of our heart He gives
Detaching from this place;
When finally we realize
He is our treasured trace.

We give it all to you now Lord
It’s what we’re called to do;
We lay all down to pick you up
Our lives we give to You.

Amen to You who died on that cross
Amen that You showed the way;
Amen I abide in You this night
Amen till the Judgment Day.


Obedient, Pure, and True

Colleen Livingston

I’ve opened up my heart to You
You’ve shown me where to go
A caring thought of magnitude
Engraves my heart to grow.

To be in lowly places
To take the humble road
I know now, Lord, this way of grace
You’ve destined me to know.

Time and time you show the way,
You guide me through and through.
Whenever I am losing step,
You show me what to do.

Awakened I am to this new life;
Obedient, pure, and true.
If I had it all to do again,
I’d do it all for you.

What time is left is but a breeze,
That wisps across the sky.
But I do know this one thing’s for sure,
Your light shines bye and bye.

A trickle neath the tender breath,
Of righteousness to breed.
I choose to walk the humble path,
Your will I do concede.

Goodnight to the One who made it all,
My peace I give to You.
A stillness passes through tonight,
As You show me what to do.





Laid Down to Give

Laid Down to Give

Colleen Livingston

To the ones I love, I write this poem
It’s one that can’t be missed
It’s all about the ones I love
Who share in eternal bliss

I awoke this day in thought of prayer
Of how to serve this day
When everything seemed dull and dark
Even close to fade away

I recalled the moment when I was called
Out of the dark and ashes
I remembered that I gave it all to him
Who took my death and lashes

I know He paid the price for me
For this I shan’t forget
But on these days when all seems dark
I remember without regret

This is a poem of gratitude
A poem that sees me through
My life is not the same now, Lord
I owe it all to You

You shine in darkness, from within
You fill my lamp with oil
You give me all I need to walk
In step with You, no foil

Keep me on this humble path
To walk upright with You
So I may be a light that shines
For others to turn to You

Amen to the One who gave it all
Amen to the One who lives
I shan’t forget the day we met
When my life laid down to give

A Night to Remember

A Night to Remember

Colleen Livingston

Tonight, a magnetic force collides inside my spine.
It’s all because I’ve opened up my heart to One Divine.
He’s made me clean from all unseen and even made me pure.
I owe it all to Him for now I’m ready to endure.
This moment I’ve been waiting for, the one that seems surreal.
Although it is a moment that so many shall get healed.
A final taste of destiny is what I’ve come to serve;
I lay awake, yes pondering, what’s next to spark the nerve.
A talented and gifted bunch this crew has been prepared;
It’s time to saddle up this night and do what others won’t dare.
A destiny has made a match to march in final line;
A destitute of godly saints who lose their lives to find.
I lay awake, yes pondering, what wonders we’ll bestow;
When all of us are gathered round the One we long to know.
Goodnight sweet blue bird singing grand sweet lullabies of bliss;
This world we leave behind us now, this darkness shan’t be missed.
Amen to the ones who gave it all and showed us where to go;
I lay awake, yes pondering, how others too shall know.
Eternity is at the door awaiting final cast;
The moment He’s been waiting for is now fulfilled at last.


Lilies in the Field

Lilies in the Field
Colleen Livingston

I’ve walked among the valleys,
And have seen the darkest death.
I’ve paraded with the lilies,
And have tasted final breath.

I would not ask the one I love,
To suffer as I first did.
But now this final hour comes,
When love shines final bid.

I came down straight from heaven,
To show how much I love.
But now this hour comes at last,
When saints shall rise above.

A cast upon the lilies,
Vastly growing in the fields.
Awake now my pure beauty,
Align to march the final seal.

The waves have crashed,
Upon the shores.
I’ve opened up the wells.

Now open up I stand behind,
I’m waiting at the door.

Listen closely with an ear,
To do as I first willed.
And all will come to bliss at last,
Your hearts with love be filled.

I cast upon the bed this night,
Sweet lilies from the fields.
I’ve given you a chance at last,
To bow as I did yield.

I Walk Now With You

I Walk Now With You

Colleen Livingston

I had wondered once what made me tick,
I drank sometimes till I’d get sick.
I’m glad those days are gone, goodbye,
I’m glad the Lord is near my side.
If I had drifted farther, I’d never see,
What glorious plans for eternity.
This isn’t a poem of fractured betrayal;
Rather a tender relief of my life in travail.
The Lord He is faithful in all He sees to,
You tell Him your heart and He’ll guide you through.
Never forget that He died on the cross,
He paid a great price that will never be lost.
Start fresh new this year walking in step with Him;
I promise those old days will run rather thin.
You’ll taste a new life that is filled with pure love,
You’ll stand firm in truth, you’ll fly like a dove.
A peace that will last forever in Him,
We welcome you now for your new life begins!
Hurray! We applaud you and march by your side!
Remember this moment when all things have died.
Alive you are now, you are clothed in pure light,
Now stand firm this one, you are determined to fight.
Amen my new brother, I welcome you here.
Amen to my sister, you are treasured and dear.

A Tribute to the Ones I Love

Colleen Livingston

The following poem was written in honor of the life of Diane Susan Livingston 1957-2012.

Over the hill, I’ve walked this life;
No longer frustrated by sickness and strife.
A tribute I’ve made to the ones I love;
Giving them presents of stems from the grub.
Just after many, I’ve made my own way,
But now I see shadows that soon fade away.
Listen, the clock ticking from far beyond here,
The truth I behold in my heart I hold here.
Just when I walked down streets of clear glass;
I saw the One waiting all I did was glimpse passed.
He held me so close that I did not even cry;
He showed me the moments of life passing by.
I fell to my knees and saw clearly the truth;
That opened my heart to receive a life new.
I gaze now a beauty that trembles inside;
He’s made all things new, He’s shifted my stride.
I do not regret the choices I’ve made;
For now all I see, is its lead me to be saved.
Clear oceans of blue, they wash over me,
A place of true peace and of serenity.
I wish I could kiss each one of you bye;
And I know I will miss you and remember you cry.
Goodbye to the ones I have held dear to me;
Goodbye to the ones who will live eternally.
I will see soon your faces to shine like the Son;
United we’ll be forever as one.
Amen
