Silently I Wait On You

Silently I wait on you,
silently I pray.
Silently I wait on you,
to help me begin my day.

Hopefully, I wait for you,
to give the direction which I need.
Hopefully, I wait on you, Lord,
to guide me and also lead.

Quietly I wait upon you,
in all my silent prayers.
Quietly I wait upon you,
for I know you will be near.

Expectantly I wait on you,
with the assurance, you will come.
Expectantly I wait on You,
knowing the battle has been won.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Psalm 25:5
Lead me in Your truth and teach
me, For You, are the God of my
salvation; For You, I wait all
the day.

They Never Will Lonely Long

Taste of the Lord’s cup of life,
Drink and let your soul be filled
Then climb the highest mountain
And shout from the highest hill

Tell of the sweetness you have found
In the love of the Lord your God
Let your lips be filled with praise
As You lift him with your hearts love

Nothing will be more consistent
And no love can ever be so true
Then the love of my sweet Lord
That He will lovingly give to you

Kiss the wind with words of praise
While lifting the Lord in joyous song
Telling the world with his tender love
They will never be lonely long.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

God Placed You In Front Of Me

I had no choice this day but to love You
My heart could do nothing else but care
So perpetually my mind began to spin
When You sat down by my side so near

I don’t think I would have chosen You
If that moment in time was left up to me
But Your Father had set in motion a plan
Where Your grace would soon set me free

My heart was swept away so effortlessly
As You reached out taking me by my hand
Never realizing my life could be this happy
Loving You Lord as no other human ever can

And it’s the most magnificent of blessings
The greatest gift my life can ever receive
That moment in time when I became newly alive
The day Your God placed You, God, in front of me.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

The Way

Everything Lord, I have sought from You
I would have never found in my world today
Until the moment I humbled myself before you
Receiving your touch of grace which saves

For I sought the one on one fellowship
Which your love provides in my life each day
When I opened my heart and my spirit to You
Thankful Lord, you chose to show me the way

For I hungrily sought to be in your presence
To learn the true wisdom from your living word
So one day I might lead many others seeking
To hear the rhapsody which my ears have heard

For my life, has become truly meaningful
Since the moment I gave my love to you
And your spirit provides me guidance daily
In everything your spirit leads me to pursue

For I find your promise has never been broken
That in my life you will provide my many needs
As long as I choose to walk with you each day
Along the narrow way, You have laid out for me.

The Best Insurance Policy

Tags

, , , , ,

Many invest their money in policies,
That will pay when one day they die
Some think by working hard each day
It will bring peace into their lives

Others place their trust in riches,
Worldly things which will only fade
But I have the greatest insurance policy,
For the LORD CHRIST, is with me today

And even though my body dies daily,
There is one thing which I can be sure
That when I leave this shell of flesh,
I will be with my LORD forever more

For He has given me His promise,
So that within I may rest assured
That imagination cannot comprehend,
What for me He does have in store

And though this world is troubling,
With many obstacles in our way
I know within the embrace of JESUS,
That my heart and soul will stay

For my faith will never allow me,
To depart the policy which pays true
And you can bank all on His promise,
That with Our LORD you will never lose.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Behold, God is my salvation, I will trust
and not be afraid, ‘For YAH, the LORD, is my
strength and song, He also has become my
salvation.'” ISAIAH 12:2

So Many Things

Tags

, , , , ,

You became to me
my heart and soul,
that unique essence
which lives within…

You became the rain,
the sun, the moon,
whose beauties are
found as each day
begins and ends…

You became my rock,
my tower of strength,
my morning star which
shines so very bright…

For Lord, You became
every lovely thing to me,
when you entered my heart
forever changing my life.

Psalm 16, 5 – 11
You, Lord, are all I have, and you
give me all I need; my future is in
your hands. How wonderful are your
gifts to me; how good they are!
I praise the Lord, because he guides
me, and in the night my conscience
warns me. I am always aware of the
Lord’s presence; he is near, and
nothing can shake me. And so I am
thankful and glad, and I feel
completely secure because you protect
me from the power of death. I have
served you faithfully, and you will
not abandon me to the world of the
dead. You will show me the path that
leads to life; your presence fills me
with joy and brings me pleasure forever.

Look Beyond Hatred

Tags

, , , , ,

If we each could only look beyond
To see in each heart what God sees
Only then might we begin to live
A life framed by spiritual dignity

Even though we see many colors
There are really only two kinds
As God created our flesh and spirits
His love giving life to humankind

Not created to be unlike another
Only our personalities can define
The differences that lie between us
Deep within, our spirits are defined

Where we all are made the same
For in our spirits, His spirit lives
If we could look beyond what we see
Like our creator, we learn to give…

A genuine selfless and priceless
love to all our sisters and brothers,
not hate.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
A prayer for those who were taken away from us
in Pittsburgh this weekend. May God bless all
of them, their loved ones, and those who came to
their aid.

John 13:34
A new commandment I give to you,
that you love one another: just
as I have loved you, you also are
to love one another.

That I May Cherish Your Love

Tags

, , , ,

<a

Be a part of me, of all
the moments of my day, of
all my thoughts and dreams,
of all my day-thoughts…
be a part of me

Let me know you and not let
a tiny moment pass when you
are not with me when your
spirit does not fill me
reminding me of your love

For without You Lord beside
me I will slip and forget
you, for I am powerless
alone unless empowered
by your spirit and my own
hearts desire to share my
life always with you…

So be a part of my world
in the morning, afternoon
and in the dark of night that
I might treasure each moment
we share, reminding me
to always cherish your love.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Isaiah 49:16
Behold, I have inscribed you
on the palms of My hands; Your
walls are continually before Me

Jeremiah 31:3
The LORD appeared to Israel from
far away and said, I’ve loved you
with an everlasting love, therefore
I have drawn you with gracious love.

Isaiah 43:4
Since you are precious in My sight,
Since you are honored and I love you,
I will give other men in your place
and other peoples in exchange for your
life.

Enter by the narrow gate. For the gate is wide
and the way is easy that leads to destruction,
and those who enter by it are many. For the
gate is narrow and the way is hard that leads
to life, and those who find it are few

And your ears shall hear a word behind you,

you turn to the right or when you turn to
the left.

Eager Expectation

Tags

WENDELL A. BROWN

As we sit down each day to share
Creation does take delight
Because from its very beginning
It has eagerly awaited those
Who were predestined to bring
The light of the creator back
Into a world darkened by sin and
decay.

For those who have risen through
the death of Christ, why they yet
live in the flesh in this putrid
world, have become empowered in
their inner person by the Holy
Spirit to be the blessed carriers
of the eternal message of His loving
grace, kindness and love.

For those who have put self to death
in Christ, now are reborn to serve
through the blessing of the new life
of our Lord, no longer being slaves
to worldly sin but joint heirs to the
new kingdom yet unseen, that they
patiently await with a fervent and
passionate hope.

So let the words and images of their
new messages flow daily from deep within,
while their new inner person delights in
everyone that comes from the Holy Spirit
which now inhabits their hearts, while being
passed through their daily gifts to others

For if they indeed are alive in the Spirit,
will not a river of seeds flow from these
gifts blessing many, as the power of His
Spirit moves them to understand and seek out
His love? Never tire of doing the good that
you now do but stand strong for only a
few are chosen for this challenging but
enjoyable task.

For God will remember those who serve others,
and they shall live forever with Him in the
kingdom to come! For though your flesh has
died to sin, your inner person, that is your
spirit is alive with Christ serving him daily
with all your heart, strength and spirit
sharing his love with many…

Teaching others to forgive themselves,
and many others instantly, as Christ
forgave us one time for everything
instantly by his sacrifice on the Cross.
bringing peace into the lives of many
by His example.

For there Is only one way to see God
and that is through the new creation
of the selfless inner person within…

If Christ is in you, your body Is now
dead because of sin, but your new inner
person, your spirit, is alive now
because of God’s righteousness and
amazing grace.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Romans 8:19
For the creation waits in eager
expectation for the children of God
to be revealed.

Psalm 130:5-6
I wait eagerly for the Lord’s help,
and in his word I trust.
I wait for the Lord
more eagerly than sentries wait for the dawn;
than sentries wait for the dawn.

Thank You Lord

Tags

, , , , ,

I thank You for returning me to Your word
I am overjoyed by your loving embrace
For there is nothing as fulfilling as your love
Nothing as tantalizing as Your blessed grace

I am moved in my soul to shed many tears
For my happiness runneth over like a cup full
As what I feel in my heart is inexpressible
As what lives in my heart comes from only You

Who am I, Lord, this day but a poor vagabond
One who needs not to be noticed to be pleased
I am a person of such low esteem in this world
To be loved graciously by the only One I need

Many times my flesh has been broken by sin
Tormented ferociously by the enemies minions
Father, I prayed for them to be taken away
And your hand did banish them from within

Such healing power was found in Your living word
That, when spoken from your lips, filled my bones
Your words, “My grace will be sufficient for you
For in weakness is My power by you owned”

And I will lift up Your majestic Holy name
So that all who meet me will surely know
That though weakness by sight abounds within
It’s overcome by God who has made my heart home

For true salvation, this day is alive and well
As I daily walk with my loving God all day long
I will boast in You healing my infirmities
For with Your grace when I am weak, I am strong.

Written October 1976.
I had a leg injury in August 1976 which was
not healing, after three months, and I was
Lead to pray and I was able to rise up thanks
to faith in praying.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
This prayer from Jeremiah, has healed many;

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