DREAMING OF HEAVEN

Tags

, , , , ,

What words should grace my lips today
With the choice my heart always makes
As my eyes slowly awaken this morning
Rising from my bed with new-found faith

I find my life is never empty these days
Since You have made my heart your home
Finding moments of perfect abiding faith
Where my mind’s thoughts to heaven roam

For within the deepest parts of my spirit
I come to know the place of which it dreams
One full of surpassing and awesome beauties
Yes I have beheld the place I long to be

I am able to bring back with me a small part
Of the heaven which my smiling spirit sees
Along with a taste of sweet bliss on my lips
Which one day in heaven will always be with me.

Joel 2:28
“And afterward, I will pour out my
Spirit on all people. Your sons and
daughters will prophesy, your old
men will dream dreams, your young
men will see visions.

Colossians 3:1
Therefore if you have been raised up
with Christ, keep seeking the things
above, where Christ is, seated at the
right hand of God.

THE LOVE

Tags

, , , , , ,

The fires burn so deeply
inside your heart where
love does lay…

The fires rage so endlessly
for what always seems hours
and many days

The fires never seem to die
as their essence never seems
to fade

The fires burn now because of
the one love, yes, the love who
kisses your lips today

AT PEACE

Fill me Lord with your
spirit which my heart
each day longs to feel

Fill me Lord with your
vibrant love which no
one from me can steal

Fill me Lord with your
patience so your word
I will long to keep

Fill me Lord with your
spirit so that my heart
will be at peace.

Galatians 5:22
But the fruit of the Spirit
is love, joy, peace,
forbearance, kindness,
goodness, faithfulness,

YOUR LOVE IS MY FAITH’S REWARD

You are more valuable than the
World’s most priceless treasure
More abundant are Your works than
Those who work for You…

Your love knows
no bounds.

Your spirit holds back nothing
From those who love and praise
Your most holy name.

You are a golden rose to the eye,
Feather soft pillows to the touch
And to the lips, You are sweet honey
Tasteful and such a delight to the
Buds of my tongue

To the Lost, You are a friend,
Who never forsakes anyone who
Earnestly seeks You out

To the Fatherless You are a beloved
Father, wonderful in every way who
Knows no bounds in Your charitable
Blessings which are never-ending

To the lonely, You are a comforter,
A strong sanctuary to the weak,
As Your love is ever-increasing
For those longing to find salvation.

And to me, You are love, the most real
Of loves that human minds who do not
Know You dream of possessing, yet You
Freely give this great gift to all who ask

The joy Your love brings is never-ending
As it is poured daily into my heart, for
You have rewarded my faith discerning
The words from my heart are true as is
The love which lives within for You is
Pure

So true is my heart as I say
I love You Lord with words of
Sweet praise acknowledging Your
Love is my faith’s reward.

Daniel 12:3
Those who manifest wisdom will shine like
the brightness of the expanse of heaven,
and those who turn many to righteousness
will shine like the stars forever and ever.

I SHALL WAIT ON YOU

Tags

, , , , , ,

As my day does comes to an end
When it seems my strength is gone
As the hours seem to pass by slowly
When all I try just seems so wrong

Within my heart, I seek the words
A psalm that will lift my spirit high
For so often when I feel tired
Even on my bed, I do not want to lie

I reach within my soul for the energy
And I seek with my inner voice to pray
And I Find I have such a great need of You
Yes for Your soothing spirit to come my way

And as I pray silently and so sweetly
While I gently embrace Your name
I find that I shall always wait on You
Knowing my happiness I will again regain

You are that power that will save me
The blessed assurance my heart knows
And I happily will wait on You Lord
Because my Lord I do love you so.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Psalm 5:3
LORD, in the morning you will hear my voice;
in the morning I will pray to you, and I will
watch for your answer.

Psalm 130:5
I wait for the LORD, my whole being waits, and
in his word, I put my hope.

Gave me four words to write a poem
back in 2012, and they inspired me
spiritually to write this, as I felt
the living spirit within them…and she
put it upon this scroll. Which is
a gift I will always treasure. Her
and her husband, are my friends and
family always in Christ. May God
bless them always. Thank you again, my sister!

GOD’S TOUCH

Tags

, , , , ,

Your touch heals
illnesses and minds,
even for those who lack
the richness of faith
within

Your living word will
fill any emptiness one
might find day to day
in their lives to begin

When Lord so many find
themselves to be lacking,
alone without a strong
rock on which to stand

Many need the touch of
your grace and love,
and the embracing power
of your forgiving hands
_________________________
Psalm 86.5
You, Lord, are forgiving
and good, abounding in
love to all who call to
you.

GOD’S LIVING WORD

Tags

, , , , , , ,

I yearn for Your living
Word Father, I desire to
Embrace His spirit, possessing
His power in my heart, soul,
And spirit each day

He is my pearl of great
Worth which I will honor,
Cherish, and always
Treasure

It is Your living word which
Brings life with a healing
Power He is the One through
Which salvation only comes

Blessed was the day I
Embraced Your living word
Receiving His perfect peace
And love deep in my heart

He renewed my soul
And spirit, indeed His
Spirits power and grace
Causes a blossoming to
Occur daily in my life
He set me free

Belief in Him is so very
Important because as the
Changes begin, it is His
Validity the enemy seeks
To deny and disprove causing
Unbelief to fester in many

Your living word is the
fire Which sets my heart
Aflame deep within inspiring
New psalms each day

Humbly will I lift up Your
Name with a thankful heart
You are my only true hope
And blessed assurance of
The eternal life gift to come.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
John 1, 1-5
In the beginning was the Word, and
the Word was with God and the Word
was God. He was with God in the
beginning. Through him all things
were made; without him nothing was
made that has been made. In him was
life, and that life was the light of
all mankind. The light shines in the
darkness, and the darkness has not
overcome[a] it.

Hebrews 4:12
For the word of God is alive and active.
Sharper than any double-edged sword,
it penetrates even to dividing soul and
spirit, joints, and marrow; it judges the
thoughts and attitudes of the heart.

WHAT YOU DESIRE ME TO BE

Tags

, , , , , ,

I open my heart to
your generous love
for I want this day
so much to be

A much better person
then the image Lord
which is alive in the
the mirror I daily see

I open my soul to You
dear Lord, hoping one
day to come to see

Your spirit of grace
falling down on my
soul, shaping me to
be what you desire me
to be

For you have chosen me
from my beginning days
when I was given life
in my mother’s womb

And my eyes and spirit
seek deeply Lord how
your blessings ahead
will dress me soon

You are the only one I
seek to praise with each
precious word my heart
daily brings to life…

For since the first breaths
my lungs embraced, serving
you alone lord is my life’s
dearest delight.

(1971)

Your hands made me and formed me;

Psalm 139
O Lord, You search me and You know
me; you know when I sit and when I
stand, you understand my thoughts
from afar….behind and before you
encircle me and rest your hand upon
me….You formed my inmost being, you
knit me together in my mother’s
womb. I praise you that I wonderfully
and fearfully made….even my bones
were not hidden from you as I made
and fashioned in secret….Your eyes
foresaw all my actions and all my
days were written in your book
before one of them ever came to be.

SORELY MISSED

Tags

, , , , , ,

Swept away from our sight was sadness
As our work days slowly came to an end
Replacing it on our face’s was gladness
As this awaited time would finally begin

When our arms would gently embrace
While our lips happily share a kiss
Showing each with more than words
How the others love today we missed

Each day there’s a moment to celebrate
A special time binding two as one
Where happiness flavors our moments
Bringing to us a long-awaited outcome.

We joyfully play love’s daring tug of war
At the moment to see who might be the best
Explaining to the other with inspiring words
Who today in our hearts was sorely missed

…the most.

(2012)
