YOUR ETERNAL HOME

When you hear the calling of His soft voice
Seek not to turn your heart and ears away
Listen closely to the message you now hear
Not letting a single morsel to be lost today

Let His word make a new home in your heart
While never allowing your soul to be misled
As you are granted the single greatest gift
That in your heart and spirit will ever live

For the One who has called you today by name
Has a promise of eternal life in His hands to give
Blessed with a power given to Him by His Father
Along with the grace that allows Him to forgive

And if you embrace the call of His tender voice
Accepting His wonderful gift promise as your own
Then through His door of life, you will now be led
Being assured a true place in His heavenly home.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
John 14:2
In my Father’s house are many mansions: if it
were not so, I would have told you. I go to
prepare a place for you.

John 5:39 – 40
“You search the Scriptures because you think
that in them you have eternal life; it is these
that testify about Me: and you are unwilling
to come to Me so that you may have life.

IT IS ALL ABOUT YOU

, , , , , , , ,

It is all about You
Every word that I wrote
Describing your genuine
Love I searched for and
Found

It is all about You
When I humbled myself
Before You, repenting
Of my sins…

While receiving
The forgiving touch
Of Your love that
Satisfies and makes
A heart to feel secure

It is all about You
For Your Spirit lead
Me to You, by showing
Me the failings of
This world’s false love

It is all about You
Inspiring my heart
To write praises to
Glorify You with the
lines of every single
Prayer and psalm

It is all about You
Allowing me to receive
Your blessings and
Forgiveness along with
Your favor and amazing
Grace

It is all about You
Helping me to blossom
And grow in my spiritual
Life as each day Your
Living word I embraced

It is all about You and
My belief and faith, that
You would keep your promise
To have Your Spirit guide
Me all the days of my life…

It is all about You, Lord,
For Your love makes each day
Beautiful.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Lamentations 3:22-23
Because of the LORD’s great love, we are not
consumed, for his compassions never fail.
They are new every morning; great is your
faithfulness.

ALL I KNOW IN MY HEART IS YOU

Tags

, , , , , ,

When I first gazed into your eyes
I never had to really reason why
Why my heart began to truly fly
Like the stars that light the sky

I needed not to really understand
What seeing you had really meant
I only know when I saw your face
I fell deeply in love with you

Dreams began dancing in my mind
As sweet melodies made their bed
While thoughts of falling in love
Made their presence felt in my head

With stars shining brightly above
I really never needed to understand
What seeing you now really meant
Or why on you now my time was spent
I only knew I fell in love with you

The only words my heart could say
Were those my lips let slip away
For here in my world, you now stay
Chasing any loneliness within away

Now sad dreams I no longer embrace
For beside me your love will live
I never needed to really understand
What first seeing you really meant
I only know I fell in love with you

So sweetly I fell in love with you
Completely I fell in love with you
So deeply I fell in love with you
All I know now in my heart is you.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Written in May 1977, to bring
a smile from my future wife’s
face. I thought I would share
it today as she is not feeling
well to bring her beautiful
smile alive this morning!

unnamed (2)

The great wall within had
fallen apart, and its
stone covering was taken
away revealing a heart of
flesh

Darkness has been dispelled
and sadness swept far away
from the broken pieces of
its former outer shell

The pain, anguish, and
loneliness once alive
within is now dead and
not known any longer after
my cry of repentance

Allowing His Spirits light to
enter where a heart of flesh
now appears newly fashioned
by His creative hands

Finding it now being fed
by a Heavenly Light, while
it brings new life
abundantly within it with
His spirit

Allowing it to live filled
with a lasting desire to
worship, and serve fully the
One who blessed it with His
true heavenly treasure…

His gift of eternal salvation and life.

(written 1972)

Psalm 36:9
You are the giver of life. Your light
lets us enjoy life.

John 1:3
All things were created through Him,
and apart from Him not one thing was
created that has been created.

THANKING YOU

I thank you, Lord, for this beautiful day
When Your living word came rescuing me
As my heart and mind began wandering away
You caused all the enemy’s minions to flee

I find there will always be a constant need
For Your holy spirit in my life to stay
As its wisdom, and power is always enough
To keep me daily embracing Your way

For though we may try to live our lives
Likened to the way that You lived yours
The dark powers amass like a daily storm
Waiting to pounce when we leave our doors

And your living word has become my armor
Which no weapon on earth can ever overcome
While my faith in You became the foundation
Which assures my heart the battle is won.
(1972)
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Ephesians 2: 8-9
For it is by grace you have been saved,
through faith—and this is not from
yourselves, it is the gift of God— not by works,
so that no one can boast. For we are God’s
handiwork, created in Christ Jesus to do good
works, which God prepared in advance for us to do.

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.

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.”
