From the Shadows

From the Shadows

 

Here in the shadows where I like to hide

Deep in the darkness is where I abide 

 

I look at my sin and recede even more

I’m shamed and in agony right to my core

 

I look to the light unworthy and shamed

I hear the gentlest of whispers calling my name 

 

The sweetest of songs filling my ears

So very sweet, I want to draw near

 

I see a soft light penetrating my cave 

I reach out attempting to somehow be brave 

 

As the light draws nearer I’m bathed in its warmth 

I feel like I’m being wrapped in God’s arms

I Rest in Your Arms

I Rest in Your Arms

 

You hold the universe, yet I rest in Your arms

Constantly loved and protected from harm

 

My eyes are set on You, You keep me from foes

You embrace my heart, You ease all my woes

 

You calm my spirit with the breath of Your love

You help me with angels sent from above

 

I delight in Your presence, I bask in Your embrace

I long for the day I will look on Your face

 

Hold me close my dear Lord, never leave my side

In You will I flourish, with You I long to abide

 

No Loss in You

No Loss in You

 

Though I know I’m not good enough

You forever hold my hand

You bathe me in your love and grace

Goodness too great to understand

 

Bring me back to what really matters;

Making Your heart glad

You are the refuge I run to

Your love is the best I’ve had

 

Amazing love washes over me

I’m moved by Your spirit

I can only stand and worship You

Let all creation hear it

None Like You

None Like You

 

I sing you praise my precious God, there is none like You

I give you glory my beloved King, all I want is in You

 

I worship You with all I am, nothing can take Your place

I give myself to You my God, there is nothing like Your grace

 

Allelluah to You Lord, You are my King and my Maker

I give all I am to You for You are the great peace maker

 

All power to you Prince of Peace, ruling from Your throne

You stand alone to rule the Heavens as no others have known

 

I wish to pleaseYou more than all, to bring joy to Your heart

Let each of my days be just with You and never be apart

 

My Shelter

Based on Psalm 91

 

When you sit sheltered under the shadow of El Shaddai

You are hidden in the strength of God Most High (TPT Ps91:1)

 

I can only say of my God that He is my confidence, in Him I trust

I lay my life in His hands, for His ways are always just

He is the hope that embraces me, the Stronghold to shelter me

Ever present and fighting when my foes aim to swelter me

 

How I love to rest under His wings hidden from my foes

He watches me in all my days He saves me from my woes

 

He commands His angels to gather around me and guard me

They will lift me up to not let my enemies bombard me

 

Because I love Him, He protects and keeps me free from harm

I will sit forever sheltered in His loving arms

 

How Wonderful

How Wonderful

 

How full of joy to know I’m Yours and know that You are mine

How wonderful to rest in Your arms and know all is fine

 

How excellent to know You’ve come to wash my sins away

How incredible to know I’ll see Your face before me one fine day

 

How lovely to receive Your gifts sent from up above

How sensational to sit in Your arms and know that I am loved

 

How incredible to know my strength lies within Your joy

How remarkable to be Your child, the gifts that You employ

 

How beautiful to come to You and know You’re always there

How marvellous to know You listen to every single prayer

Spring Poem

Spring Rain

Time again

To wait for flowers bloom

Blue skies

Earth cries

To see the springtime soon

Honey bees

Warm breeze

Sunshine on the cheek

Still dear

Without fear

Sanding by the creek

God’s gift

Winter lifts

His beautiful expression

Perfect reason

Beautiful season

A lasting sweet impression

I Write this Poem

 

I write this poem to honour God for all that He has done

For saving me from the fowler’s net, for all my enemies He has won

 

I write this poem to give God glory, His majesty divine

I long to praise and worship Him, His salvation now is mine

 

I write this poem to give God thanks for all His mercy and grace

I long for the day I’ll see Him enthroned and look upon His face

 

I write this poem with love and awe for all my Lord has given

Most of all He took my sins and now I stand forgiven

 

From My Cave

From My Cave

 

In the midst of the cave

haunted and torn

you called me to life

and I was reborn

 

“out of the darkness

i called forth the light

created the universe

and made your world bright”

 

I hide in the shadows

but they are your home

working your will

when I think I’m alone

 

“Embrace me, my child

as I show you my ways

Be not afraid

as I master your days”

 

With fear and trembling

I reach for His hand

So scared of tomorrow

So alone I stand

 

Help me dear Father

To run to your arms

Show me Your love

Pour out your charms

 

Light my path, Light my days

As I stumble and fall

Grasping at faith

To You I will call

 

How Can We?

Victoria, so precious as a baby

How Can We 

 

How can the years pass so slowly when moments pass so fast?

How can we take the precious moments and bottle them to last?

 

How can we live in the moment when we waste our days?

How can we teach the young to learn is much more than to play?

 

How can we look a baby in the eye and not say a prayer?

How can we pass the homeless on the street and not give a care?

 

Why don’t we listen when we know that in helping others we help the Lord?

How can we live in indulgence when the needy are so ignored?

 

How can we know of the broken hearted and not lift a hand to pray?

How can we change the way we live our lives, starting from today?
