Spring Refresh

Blossoms along the Humber River

Spring Refresh

Sweet sunlight, sweet moonlight
Caress on my face

The wind whispers softly
Spring’s sweet embrace
Kiss of the gentle breeze
Brushing my lips
Warmth of the mid-day
My worries eclipse
Sweet songs of birds
Play love in my ears
The sound of the ocean
Ebbing my fears
God’s love surrounds
As I greet the new day
Tender mercy refreshed
In this most tangible way

Wisdom’s Song

Based on Proverbs 8

Wisdom’s Song

 

Wisdom dances with delight 

For those who walk her path

The foolish run down crooked roads 

Leading to their wrath

 

Her veil streaming in the breeze

Her arms open to above

Patiently waiting to be heard

She is filled with Heaven’s love

 

Imparting revelation

She lingers near your door

Once you have a taste of her

You will always come for more

 

All the words she speaks are just

From her path you must not stray

Wisdom pours herself into you

When you decide to walk in her way

 

Her lyrics will empower you 

To make the choice that’s right

Her voice  will save you from the traps 

Set for you by night

 

Sin waits to devour all 

With a seductive, honey song

So easy to fall into sin 

And quickly turn to wrong

 

Be steadfast in your love of her

Don’t look to left or right

Follow the path that is filled with love

And receive her glorious light

 

Into Your Presence

Into Your Presence

 

Pull me into Your presence Lord

For each day I love you more

I want You to know that I believe

I want You to know it’s You I adore

 

You say take courage for all is well

You’ve laid out my path and my way

You’ve planned my every moment

You say only to carry this day

 

For You I will fight all my fears

You place me in the depth of Your love

For You have wiped all my tears

And from hereon only look to above

 

I belong only to You forever

For Your love burns inside me

Like a father with a newborn babe

You protect and safely guide me

 

I know You will not fail me

You have prepared my way

Your glory overwhelms me

More love poured out each day

 

I Belong to You

I Belong to You

 

II am giving You all my precious King

I can’t be without Your beauty any longer 

You give me love, You give me hope

You make my spirit stronger

 

I am finished chasing empty dreams

Running down empty trails

Your love breaks down all obstacles

Your glory never fails

 

With You the darkness disappears

I am captivated by Your light

As the sun brightens the universe

And the stars shine through the night

 

 

Hope Whispers

Hope Whispers

 

Hope whispers through the wind and lands like a gentle dove

Hope lifts the dreariest head and fills its soul with love

 

Love falls softly on longing hearts, ever waiting to adore

Love gifts the soul with her beautiful touch ever giving more

 

Joy joins the ones who seek God’s truth no matter what the season

Joy to all who seek righteousness; who follow God with reason

 

Faith builds a home on solid ground, lest the tempest come

Faith fills the heart with peace when life’s dangers surely come

 

Kindness flows from deep within a loving, giving soul

Kindness when often given, leave one feeling whole

 

Jesus stands so patiently, gently rapping at your heart

Jesus comes that we may know His love and never be apart

 

Your Love

This is all so new; Your precious love

You rein me in so tenderly

A full commitment is what you have for me

Nothing in this world could ever compare

 

I just want to tell you how I love you

I know You understand

 

I know You’ll never let me go

You’ll never let me down

You’ll never leave me stranded

You’ll never hurt my heart

You’ll never tell me goodbye

No matter what, You’ll never leave me

Your Sweet Voice

When I’m so far down that I can’t see light

I slip so easily to that pit without fright

When the day disappears and there’s only night

I cry out to hear Your sweet sound

 

When my head is filled with thoughts of despair

When the days disappear and nothing is clear

When I can’t form the words in a calm sweet prayer

I know that Your love will abound

 

You lift me up in your tender wings

Oh so sweetly my spirit sings

I am lifted into the arms of a King

And in Your arms I feel love

 

I let you carry my burden called life

I hand you over my worries and strife

Even the worst which seem so rife

I give thanks to You Father  above

Where to Go from Here

Where to Go from Here

Where do I go from here, God?

Today I can..

 

Look to the light You’ve set unto my path

And know that Your love will guide my way along the wide road and the lath

The future can often feel so daunting, whether in the immediate, or in the far future. Which choices to make along the way. From early decisions such as education, friends we make and relationships that we establish to career choices, family decisions and the ways to cope through life’s many struggles, which way to go is always at our best, an educated decision; a hopeful choice; a path chosen from advice and thought.

 

When we allow God and our faith to lead our choices, the path, although perhaps just as daunting in how it may appear to us, is clear in our Heavenly Father’s eyes. It is one that was laid for us before the beginning of time and one that we can trust as it is the all-knowing, all-seeing God of the universe that has set it for us.

 

We find that He leads us in our path through prayer, through the courage to step out in faith with Him and in His Holy Word.

 

Psalm 119:105 Your word is a lamp for my feet; a lamp on my path.

“If Only”s

If Only….

Lord, when I look back, I see what I could have done and where I’ve gone wrong…

Today I’m going to:

Look to You, instead of looking back

I know that You’re my Lord of all and will put my life on track

Life is full of “if only”s. “If only I hadn’t….”; “if only I could have….”; “if only I’d known then….”.

 

Living life with these types of regrets is dangerous to our spirit and to growing as a person in our life. It is easy to get stuck in the past and what could have been, should have been, would have been, etc. What does pondering these things accomplish other than leaving a wistful sadness in your being? It gets you nowhere and worse, it can cripple you from moving forward because you are too busy looking at the past.

 

God promises that He has a plan for us. He promises that He will not let any of our life be a waste when He promises that He uses “all things for our good”. God’s love for you is boundless and too much for us to fathom.

 

When we focus our eyes and our lives on following God’s direction, our regretful hearts become renewed into hearts of hope. Hope in knowing that the Creator of all is lovingly waiting to guide us and lead us in our days. What wonderful peace awaits us in this knowledge! What joy in knowing that our tomorrows are in our loving Heavenly Father’s hands!

 

Joshua 1:9 Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged, for the Lord your God will be with you wherever you go.”
