Listen

Listen to the beauty that leads us on our way

Listen to the sunlight that guides us through our day

Listen to the trees as they direct us strong and true

Listen to the birds as their joy is shared for you

Listen to the flowers as they gaze with loving face

Listen… just listen and see God’s love in all His grace

 

Spring’s Blessings

Spring’s Blessings

If flowers could speak, what would they say?

They’d say they[re a smile from God on this day

The blanket of dew that shines in the morning

Bejewelled, it falls gently, sweetly adorning

The sweet spring wind that brushes your face

A whisper of mercy, a sigh of God’s grace

The song of a bird sings her delight

Blessing her listeners from morning to night

All hand made by God above

To bless you this day with His beauty and love

 

The Walk

The Walk

 

At a tender age, barely eleven

I came to know God and a piece of Heaven

 

Summer surrounded me as I wandered along

The air abundant with cardinals songs

 

I was so touched by nature my heart swelled in delight

I stood in awe as a flock of geese took flight

 

The flowers were singing, the grass bejewelled

The birds drank their full where a puddle had pooled

 

Overwhelmed by the beauty of the clear, blue sky

I looked up above to Jesus on high

 

I said “thank You Lord” for all that He made

So very perfect,  and so there I prayed

 

His presence enraptured me, making me smile

I come to know He is real as I walked for that while

 

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

 

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

His Amazing Love

His Amazing Love - Daisy

His Love

Beautiful heart, so precious so pure

Brought here to love, brought here to cure

Brought here to carry, brought here to give

Brought to enable the broken to live

~

Selflessly living, giving His soul

Compassion the motive, healing His goal

Bestowing grace on the weary and broken

Benevolent Savior, lived actions not spoken

~

Not seeking reward for His selfless way

Fulfilled by a smile from a child on his way

Broken of spirit drew to His side

He smiled and blessed, His arms opened wide

~

He lived for your blessing, He died for your life

Not welcomed by any, surrounded in strife

Alone in His purpose, His heart sang out love

Here for your blessing, God’s gift from above

~

He whispers His love in your broken heart’s ear

He calls to you spirit, can you not hear?

He longs to anoint you and bathe you in grace

He smiles on your spirit, come seek His beautiful face

~

 

Feeling Alone

Lord, I feel so Alone

Today I’m going to… 

Look outside and see the morning sky

Remembering that God is good, He’s perfect and He’s nigh

Feeling alone

Feeling Alone

Today is a new day.  Jesus teaches us to live today for today and not to carry the burdens of our past – mistakes, wrongs, regrets. The past is His – just give it to Him. Today is not tomorrow, so there is no need to be anxious and throughout the bible, God urges us to trust Him in faith for all of our days. 

Our Heavenly Father promises us that our future is full of hope in His hands. Embrace His love as He loves you every minute of your existence. Step outside and take a deep breath, let our Father’s love spill over you like the warmth of a warm oil that fills you with peace and joy. Sigh out your worries in thanks to God, knowing that all is in His loving, precious hands.

Rom 8:28  And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose.
