A QUIET PLACE TO PRAY

My thoughts each morning rise higher
To a place, many human hearts rarely go
Rising beyond seeable sacred boundaries
And only the Lord daily knows it is so

I find my spirit touched by love each day
By a healing touch, my eyes cannot see
But I feel the pure essence of His spirit
Within my heart as it softly embraces me

I find tranquil and serene the moments
Seeking a place in His presence to dwell
Yearning to eat my full of His daily bread
Knowing in His presence I will be healed

For as the sun smiles radiantly upon me
I will seek Your love to inspire my day
Praying You will daily commune with me
In this quiet place where I choose to pray.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Matthew 6:6
But when you pray, go into your room, close the
door and pray to your Father, who is unseen.
Then your Father, who sees what is done in
secret, will reward you.

You’re the unique love which lasts forever
The one reality whose beauty never fades
You are the sun rising deep within me
The perfect golden glow which fills my day

You are the refreshing drink I embrace
Whose nourishment massages my soul
You are my heart’s constant companion
Whose sure promise will never let me go

Your awesome power daily leads me
You are the strength that is found within
You are the one my heart daily prays to
When the newness of each day begins

I will earnestly pray for spiritual direction
Asking for your wisdom and knowledge too
So I might not err during my daily walk
Seeking in my life not to ever displease You.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Psalm 34:8
Taste and see that the Lord is good;
blessed is the one who takes refuge in him.

Psalm 119:2
Blessed are those who keep his statutes
and seek him with all their heart.

Psalm 9: 1-2
I will give thanks to you, Lord, with
all my heart; I will tell of all your
wonderful deeds. I will be glad and
rejoice in you; I will sing the praises
of your name, O Most High.

A LASTING EMBRACE

First, your glowing smile enchanted me
Your lovely eyes made me question why
At the initial moment when we first met
Why blissful emotions came alive inside

I could not believe what had just happened
Finding myself at that time too shy to say
Letting you know how in such a short time
How quickly your beauty took my breath away

That very first moment still lives within me
Deep in my hearts, treasure place it stays
While our moments together grow in value
As a sweet blessing, they will never go away

We quickly became a part of each other’s life
Provided by a heavenly blending of love so pure
Real feelings which became love at first sight
After many years together will surely endure

Into our lives, we were given a lasting blessing
That special moment when our lips first kissed
As we simply chose to become one always together
In a lasting embrace fill with Gods heavenly bliss.

A SONG FOR MY GOD

Tags

helleborus-niger-christmas-rose-winter-flower-garden-407107-wb

Shall I compare You to the lily
Which adorns the velvet green
Or the violet so very small yet
Its color leaves one spellbound

That even the most savage of beasts
Finds itself bewildered by its beauty
For Your beauty Lord inspires the eyes
Taking captive the thoughts of one’s heart

You are the perfect love for the seasons
The many timeless moments of each day
Your youthfulness is wonderfully preserved
Leaving me unable to compare a single beauty
To you because you are truly captivating

My God, you are the true endless masterpiece
There is not a treasure as lovely as You are
For you are a truly wonderful perfect gem
And is that not the reason You are my God…

You are flawless in your grace and love
Which you share with my heart each day
There will never be a place I would rather
Be, than to be in your presence always.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Psalm 73:23-26.
Yet I am always with you; you hold me by my right
hand. You guide me with your counsel,
and afterward, you will take me into glory.
Whom have I in heaven but you? And earth has
nothing I desire besides you. My flesh and my heart
may fail, but God is the strength of my heart and
my portion forever.

Psalm 73: 27-28

Those who are far from you will perish;
you destroy all who are unfaithful to you.
But as for me, it is good to be near God.
I have made the Sovereign Lord my refuge;
I will tell of all your deeds.

amen

For My Daughter, De’Brijae E. Brown

May your dreams become a lovely reality
May you find that special one you need
One who will put you far ahead of them
While daily striving to satisfy your needs

May they be one whose heart is truly selfless
One who will always seek to be genuinely true
May they greet your precious smile each day,
With a priceless gift of love born for only you

May your hearts seek to become one together
Never ever wanting a single day to be apart
May God bless your life with a priceless gem
A reward for your faithful pleasing heart

For God will hear your fervent prayers nightly
While embracing their true pureness alive within
Wanting to answer them very perfectly for you
With someone spiritually special chosen by Him.

“Love You, Dad.”

WITHOUT YOU

Tags

, , , , ,

Where can I go
to hide from
this image of love
which haunts me?

For even at night
when I lay down
to sleep, as my eyes
close I see your
smile…

When I am not
near you, the sadness
becomes much too
unbearable…

I found myself wanting
to embrace you, to walk,
and talk to you, so my
heart could be inspired
by the power in your
radiant smile when we
spend time together as
one

For I have become
overwhelmed by your
sweet love with its
enduring strength to
bind a willing slave
to its powers

And I know my life
could never be happy
without you always by
my side each day.

A CONTINUING LIFE OF GRACE AND LOVE

today

Your words spoken to my heart were,
‘do not worry about tomorrow’,
as I fell asleep with you being
the last thought my mind embraced

As I awakened my heart arose seeking
your amazing love, for when I fell
asleep last night all I knew in my
life came to an end

Yet as my heart felt your loving
warm caress this morning, I knew
you had rewarded me with your kiss
of life once again

I realized in you I would never
have to worry about what the new
day may or may not bring my way
because you were near

I found the true treasure of my
life is your continuing love,
along with the countless blessings
which your grace always shares

Whether I am alive or dead to
this world’s life, I know I have
tasted of the most beautiful
life-changing love, being assured
it will always stay with me

For you have rewarded my faith
with your sweet blessing of a
continuing life always filled
with your amazing grace and love.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Jeremiah 17:7-8

“But blessed is the one who trusts in the
Lord, whose confidence is in him. They
will be like a tree planted by the water
that sends out its roots by the stream.
It does not fear when heat comes; its
leaves are always green. It has no
worries in a year of drought and never
fails to bear fruit.”

WHEN YOU SPOKE THE WORDS

Your living words are life to me
They provide the air I daily breathe
They are the bliss filling my heart
The eternal love of which I dream

Oh Lord, you are my truest treasure
The song my heart daily seeks to sing
My love exists to praise you only
For the happiness your spirit brings

I shall never look away from you
Nor your love will I ever forsake
In your shadow, I will walk gladly
With each step in my life, I take

The whole of me will humbly serve you
Each moment my soul is allowed to live
And I will never forget your blessing
When you spoke the words…I forgive.

Psalm 119: verse 11
‘Thy word I have laid up in my heart,
That I might not sin against thee.’

YOUR LOVE

The light of your love
fills my heart daily with
a happiness which will
never leave

And this happiness
stays throughout the
day bringing a sweet
joy to remain with me

For whom Lord possesses
an awesome love as you
which I find from my
life will never depart

And the glow others see
in my face and eyes
Is not me but the best
part of you in my heart

…your love.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Proverbs 8:17 I love those who love me,
and those who seek me diligently find me.

Psalm 5:
But I, by your great love,
can come into your house;
in reverence, I bow down
toward your holy temple.

ENDLESS GRACE

Tags

, , , , ,

I thought of you when
I was sad today, and you
Made a smile to appear

Right on my face my Lord
You have replaced, a lost
Moment’s unhappy tear

Within the thought of you
Came a shining brightness,
Much more radiant than the
Newly risen sun

And I quietly reflected
On the goodness my heart
Received, realizing your
Outpouring of grace is
Never done.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Colossians 3:1-25
If then you have been raised with Christ, seek
the things that are above, where Christ is,
seated at the right hand of God. Set your minds
on things that are above, not on things that are
on earth. For you have died, and your life is
hidden with Christ in God. When Christ who is
your life appears, then you also will appear with
him in glory. Put to death therefore what is
earthly in you: sexual immorality, impurity,
passion, evil desire, and covetousness, which is
idolatry….
