My Life is a Mist.

Yet you do not know what tomorrow will bring. What is your life? 
For you are a mist that appears for a little time and then vanishes. 
(James 4:14 ESV)
              Lord there is so much uncertainty in this life.

Questions, changes, fears, doubts, worries, lies,
answers, paths, directions, passions, dreams, ideas...

But YOU Lord remain steadfast. You never change.
You are the only thing, the only one in this life I can fully rely.
And when I realize this, I realize how fleeting this life is.
This life I worry and fear and doubt about so much...
it is a vapor.
A vanishing mist.

You are God. The rocks cry out your name!
The birds sing praises aloud all the daylong.
Creation screams of your divinity.
Rainbows release echoes of your faithfulness.
Who am I if I am not praising you?
What do I have if I don’t have you?
I am a vapor.
A vanishing mist.

“Holy, Holy, Holy, Holy Lord
The earth is Yours and singing
Holy, Holy, Holy, Holy Lord
The earth is Yours
The earth is Yours

Your voice it thunders
The ground is shaking
The mighty mountains now are trembling
Creation sees You
And starts composing
The fields and trees they start rejoicing.

Now it’s rising form the ground
It’s rising from the ground
Hear us crying out
Hear us crying out”

I hope this life only lasts long enough
for you to hear me crying out
God that my life would pass by quickly
and send shivers as it goes.
Because this life is a vapor.
A vanishing mist.

Help me remember
these words, these thoughts, these prayers
Help my heart be steadfast
After your heart
That this life would make a mark
That this life would draw people to you
Because that is the only point.
I am nothing if I don’t worship.
I am nothing if my life doesn’t push others to worship.
It is a vapor.
A vanishing mist.


  1. I echo Courtney. It really helps to get my persepctive back on Him, (where it should be) and also is a good reminder of what my purpose is for this brief life on earth. Thank you Lesley for sharing your heart.
