A PRAYER FOR HEALING

Tags

, , , , , ,

You will ever be the love who sustains me
The joy which will always enrich my soul
You consistently will be the true happiness
Which my spirit will always seek to know

When troubling times try to surround me
When in my life it seems I cannot go on
I will wait on You Lord in constant prayer
For my faith in You will keep me strong

I pray to You from deep within my heart
To take my troubling illness far away
For I know whenever I pray to You Lord
You’ll send your blessings without delay

I pray for the wellness of those sick today
As You send Your healing blessing their way
That any sickness which tries to overcome them
By Your amazing grace in their lives won’t stay

Please bless all of their families this morning
With a true healing gift which will never fade
And we will send You many prayers of thanks
Which will glorify Your name daily in every way

You, Lord, are the One who provides sweet blessings
The living God, who showers us with love each day
And we shall steadfastly believe in Your awesome power
Knowing its healing energy will nourish us always.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Many of our worldwide family members, especially
our young children suffer many illnesses each day
in their lives, but we can do all things through
Him who strengthens us. Every one of you will always
be wrapped in my daily prayers that I present before
our Lord God each new day! Spiritual hugs and
blessings to all of you!
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Psalm 103:1-5
Praise the Lord, my soul; all my inmost being,
praise his holy name. Praise the Lord, my soul,
and forget not all his benefits— who forgives all
your sins and heals all your diseases, who redeems
your life from the pit and crowns you with love
and compassion, who satisfies your desires with
good things so that your youth is renewed like
the eagles.

Jeremiah 17:14
Heal me, LORD, and I will be healed; save me and I
will be saved, for you are the one I praise.

You are the blessed power that fills me
The precious wealth which fills my soul
You are the deep well which I drink from
The forever love I will never let go

You have made my life to be meaningful
Within the grace found in Your touch
You have made my heart to dance happily
Causing it to long for Your love so much

I’m made better each day I spend with you
By the healing power of Your amazing grace
And each day its visible for many to see
The sweet joy You allow to adorn my face

In His love, my life will continually blossom
As I humbly reach out to Him with my hands
For I’ve come to truly know the amazing grace
The moment I chose to follow the ‘Son of Man’.

Jesus is Lord!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Titus 3: 4-7
But when the kindness and the love of God
our Savior toward man appeared, not by
works of righteousness which we have done,
but according to His mercy, He saved us,
through the washing of regeneration and
renewing of the Holy Spirit, whom He
poured out on us abundantly through Jesus
Christ our Savior, that having been
justified by His grace we should become heir
according to the hope of eternal life.

Philippians 4:13
I can do all things through Christ who
strengthens me.

FATHER, I NEED YOUR LOVE ALWAYS

Tags

, , , , , , ,

overcoming

You call out to me and I answer
sometimes I am stubborn, and
You call again finding sometimes
I turn my face away…

Sometimes I hear Your voice
and yet I close my ears and
also the vents to my heart
that I might not answer…

Yet when You do not call I
cringe stumbling in the
darkness, where night becomes
my cell and loneliness
my robe…

When I do not hear Your voice
I wonder if I still have favor
with You, or if by taking You
for granted I have caused You to
turn away from me…

But in all of my selfish moments
I came to the realization, that in
my life I need You more than
You need me…

And I awaken as if from a dream,
longing for the sound of Your
voice, for Your kiss upon my
cheek and a warm hug from Your
always embracing arms…

For Father, I need Your love…always.

Exodus 15:2
The Lord is my strength and my song, and
He has become my salvation; this is my God,
and I will praise Him, my father’s God,
and I will exalt Him.

NO LONGER A SLAVE TO SIN

Tags

The sin which I would do, I have
found I will no longer do, for
the death of my sin in Christ has
delivered me to a selfless rebirth
and new life through Christ before
the living God, who is our Father
in heaven

It is such a joy to taste of
this freedom, that unlocks
all the parts of the body
to be in mutual service
to the Lord of all things

I count myself to be the
the most blessed of all
humans, and yet I am not
alone, as with Elijah, when
trying to hide from Jezebel
in the cave, he found that
he was not alone, for the Lord
God saved seven thousand
in Israel who were alive
and well in His service

For the Lord has set aside
many for His service all
around the world, because
He wants His message to be
carried to many, that they might
escape the coming wrath of the
living God. For He is complete
in His nature and all things
will reach such a state, as He
has commanded it to be from the
very beginning

Do not be naïve to this, for
through Isaac was the promise
fulfilled with his wife having
two twin sons and it was spoken by
God that the older shall serve the
younger, and again, “Jacob I loved,
and Esau I hated.” So it is not by
works that we received such a blessed
reward but by the grace of the only
living God.

For surely it is written
broad is the way to destruction
and many will find it, and
narrow is the way to life and
few will find it.

You bask in the luxuries of life,
And yet you are deluded, because
all which is worldly will fade away
and not all will be saved. For God
loves those whom he chooses, for
there will be some who in the end,
are not called the children of God,
who will become His children by
His choice.

There is a choice now, one among this
worlds living, to taste of His grace,
that we may now enjoy, and share this
blessing with others, this amazing
message of undeserved grace, that
they might not be lost but saved, as
the people of Nineveh in Jonah’s time.

Be not deceived, for we do not choose
as the Lord chooses. For He does not
choose by outward appearances, nor is
He blind to our inward thoughts, but God
chooses by what only His Spirit is able
To see, and know, that which is unknown to
the sight and hearing of a man or a
woman’s eyes, and ears, but is only
known to the Father of all living things.
for he sees the true hearts and souls alive
in the living spirits of all who breathe.

Become the useful tool of the Master
potter, that you may become acceptable
in His sight and a loved one in His
eyes. For His memory is eternal, but
even more infinite in time is His grace,
“For the wages of sin is death, but the
gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus
our Lord.”
Romans 6:23

SURRENDERING SELF TO GOD

Tags

17279b0b7b6b491b0f4d4c75b7349ed5

A song comes alive from the wind
It embraces one’s spirit as its twin
Releasing love into a star filled sky
Tasting of the serenity of heaven

One’s life begins as a blossoming flower
Whose lovely petals rise to kiss the sun
Triggering a life’s true energy to begin
Tenderly touching the soul of a living one

One must empty self of all selfish thoughts
So true wisdom has a real chance to begin
And in a place which had once laid empty
By His grace, a spirit will taste of heaven

One finds they now have the truest chance
To selflessly love another deeply in life
Because of God’s wonderful alluring love
One’s being will daily bathe in Gods light

Finding new blessings of peace and joy to stay.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Philippians 2:3-4
Do nothing from selfishness or empty conceit, but
with humility of mind regard one another as more
important than yourselves; do not merely look out
for your own personal interests, but also for the
interests of others.

Ephesians 4:22-24
that, in reference to your former manner of life,
you lay aside the old self, which is being corrupted
in accordance with the lusts of deceit, and that
you be renewed in the spirit of your mind, and put
on the new self, which in the likeness of God has
been created in righteousness and holiness of the
truth.

AWAITING YOUR SMILE

I await the rising of the sun
for its glow to fill our room
waiting for the joy that comes
as my day awakens to you

Seeing your eyes as they open
and the wonderful smile which
adorns your face, can even
cause the deepest pain I feel
to quickly be displaced

Even when I’m not feeling well
especially those times when I feel
really bad, your smile quickly
changes the color of my day making
my heart to feel so glad

For your smiles radiance is such
a delight to embrace each and
every day, as it brings to me
that special gift of your love
which continually in my life stays.

FILLING ME WITH YOUR GLOW

Your smile reaches deep within me
And its radiance touches my soul
Its softness makes the moment tender
When you are filling me with its glow

My heart is made to shine brightly
As the sun above in the sky each day
In my face, I am seen to smile happily
As your glow takes my breath away

When I feel the emotions you feel so deeply
Many times it brings my tears to softly cry
For never have I found love to be wonderful
Until I felt the warmth of your glow inside

For your smile has the magic to move my heart
With a beautiful passion which never lets me go
And its sweet loveliness makes my mind to sway
As your smile fills me with its lasting glow.

YOU

I yearn for Your word
Oh Lord, I want to own
It letting it become my
most treasured possession
In my heart

It is my pearl of great
Worth, a very notable
Treasure that I will
Honor each new day

For it is only Your word
Which gives life, and also
Heals…it is Your word
That saves

So blessed was the day
When my prayers were
Answered, as I embraced
Your living word, and it
Breathed sweet life into
Me nourishing me

It cleansed my soul and
Spirit, indeed setting
Me free and its importance
Is very real

For when we are saved by faith
It is the very first thing that
Satan will seek to steal away

For Your Word is the true fire
Which sets my heart to flame
Deep within me each new day
When I awaken…

For the love in my heart belongs
To You alone, and your loving
Embrace is my priceless gem.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Isaiah 33:6
He will be the sure foundation for your
times, a rich store of salvation and
wisdom and knowledge; the fear of the
LORD is the key to this treasure.

Isaiah 45:3
I will give you hidden treasures,
riches stored in secret places, so
that you may know that I am the LORD,
the God of Israel, who summons you by
name.

MY PLACE

Tags

Each morning I rise before You
Not taking for granted what I find,
Knowing it is only by Your grace
The breath inside my lungs is mine

As I open my eyes searching for You
As rays of happiness light my face
I’m filled with a certain tranquility
I will never find to be displaced

For the light within shines brighter
More than the light of the new day’s sun
And my heart is inspired by your grace
As it views the place my faith has won

And even though all I see around me
In this world will soon turn to dust
There’s only one thought that moves me
To live eternally, Your love is a must

Only You Lord in life can give to me
That reward which I could never earn
And only by believing in Your promise
Will my place with You in heaven be born.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
2 Corinthians 5:8
Yes, we are of good courage, and we would
rather be away from the body and at home
with the Lord.

Acts 4:12 And there is salvation in no
one else, for there, is no other name
under heaven given among men by which
we must be saved.”

THAT SAME WAY

Tags

, , , , ,

4

I saw you all as you began to question
I saw it written deep in your many faces
As your heart was moved to condemn Me
Within all your eyes, I saw sins traces

As each word from your lips reminded you
Of the many failures found in your lives too
As your sins from your hearts moved forward
Without knowing, you were also judging you

You realized the many sins you now saw
Which you were trying to condemn Me with
You also saw you shared many of the same sins
Finding as you tried to judge all is now amiss

For I took the sins of the entire world upon Me
Because of my compassion and deep love for you
Knowing at that terrible moment of my death
I would still forgive you for all your sins too

For the Lord God has spoken with his word
That one who claims they are without sin
Is really a liar without a speck of truth
As sin appeared in each new life’s beginning.

Be careful how you judge one another today
For with the same penalty, you try to place
A time comes when with the intensity you judge
You one day will be judged in that same way.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Today we see many judging another without taking
the plank, out of their own eyes…without looking
at their lives truthfully. Jesus was judged by the
leaders and many of the people in His time. They
were led by a different spirit…not Gods! Can we
imagine what His eyes saw the day he was crucified
when the masses chose Barabbas instead of Him! We
should be careful how we judge others! God bless
you, and may your day be blessed with His grace
and love…though the path to destruction is wide,
the narrow path to eternal life is still open and
there is still time for one to make the choice to
embrace Gods salvation through Christ Jesus!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Matthew 7:1
Do not judge, or you will be judged. For with
the same judgment you pronounce, you will be
judged; and with the measure you use, it will
be measured to you.
