Always Looking Upward

Tags

, , , , , , , ,

My heart looks upward into the sky
Towards your sweet heavenly abode
For I think of you so much every day
Thanking you Lord for saving my soul

I will always reflect on where I once was
And the road in which my life did stride
Until that day I elected to follow you
For that welcome promise, I will never die

Without You, my life would still be empty
Still chasing worldly desires without end
I still would be locked in a losing race
Held captive by worldly desire and sin

All it took was one breathtaking moment
Where I laid myself beneath your feet
Crying from my deep pain and sorrow
That my broken soul you would keep

For what is life without your true blessing
What is my heart without your tender love
Where would I be each day in this my life
Without your salvation and grace from above.

Psalm 121: 1-8
A song of ascents.

I lift up my eyes to the mountains—
where does my help come from? My
help comes from the Lord, the Maker
of heaven and earth. He will not
let your foot slip—he who watches
over you will not slumber; indeed,
he who watches over Israel will
neither slumber nor sleep. The Lord
watches over you—the Lord is your
shade at your right hand; the sun
will not harm you by day, nor the
moon by night. The Lord will keep
you from all harm—he will watch
over your life; the Lord will watch
over your coming and going both
now and forevermore.

Freedom Song

, , , , ,

If you follow me
I will lead you to
The peace you have
Never known

If you follow me I
Will take you to a
Place where no evil
Goes

For a new heart will
I give to you, with a
New song for it to
Sing

I will do all these
Things for you my
Beloved if you
Would only follow me

If you follow me you
Will have a new treasure
That will have eternity
As its days

If you follow me your life
will have no strife
And your loneliness
Within will fade

For a new spirit will I
Place within you so that
You will truly see

Things will be much
better for you children
If you will only follow
Me

If you follow me I will
Crumble your heart so
It is no longer made of
Stone

I will walk with you where
Ever you go so you will
Never again be alone

If you follow me I will
Come to you making a
Place in your heart my
Home

I will place my spirit
Within you giving, your
Heart a brand new song

I will bless you with a
Desire, to keep my statutes
And walk daily in my ways

I will keep you mine my
Beloved and I will know
You all of your days

If you follow me you will
Love the living Father with
All of your heart and soul

You will love your fellow
humans as yourself refusing
To let His commandments
Go

You will be all things to
Non-believers and bring
Many others to see and
Believe

If you follow the Lord God
Of your Fathers and in
Embracing him you will be
Free.
(2015)

Psalm 91:14-15
Because he holds fast to Me in
love, I will deliver him; I
will protect him, because he
knows My name. When he calls
to Me, I will answer him; I will
be with him in trouble; I will
rescue him and honor him

Psalm 118:5
Out of my distress, I called
on the Lord; the Lord answered
me and set me free.

Psalm 119:45
I walk about in freedom,
for I have sought out your precepts.

Isaiah 61:1
The Spirit of the Lord GOD is
upon me, Because the LORD has
anointed me To bring good news
to the afflicted; He has sent
me to bind up the brokenhearted,
To proclaim liberty to captives
And freedom to prisoners.

The Only One Who Saves

Tags

, , , , , ,

Oh Lord, I have tasted
of your glory and what
is inspiration Lord is
food to my heart
where joy has made
a home on its foundation
within my soul

For I weep joyous tears
of happiness as where
there once was sadness
and abounding loneliness
there now exists only the
wonderful bliss of your love

For my soul abounds
in your love’s light in
the most indomitable
way as my joy is vocally
expressed in every written
and carefully selected word
of ardent praise

For it best describes the
the happiness found within
the heart of one who believes
that the Lord is great and that
you Sweet Jesus are the only
one who saves.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Acts 4:12
New International Version
Salvation is found in no one else,
for there is no other name under
heaven given to mankind by which
we must be saved.”

Today my heart did
blossom, like a young
flower in the sun…

For my heart was
easily swept away
as my mind began to
succumb

To the love I have
Found to be so alive
within your two
lovely brown eyes

And today I found the
sweetest of loves whom
I long to forever live
by my side.

His Blessings

Tags

, , , , , ,

I was blessed to be part
of a relationship, the
greatest a living being
can ever know

I was changed by three
simple words given by
One who promised to never
let me go

He touched my heart
changing me completely
from selfish to a very
selfless one

And by doing a single
transaction on earth
into my life He allowed
His love to come

Even at night while I
am still sleeping, He will
awaken me by calling my
name

And I lovingly embrace
the pure grace of the
One who in my life has
brought lasting change

Even still as if it was
the very first time
my heart daily sings to
Him songs of joy

For in my life I am blessed
with a most precious treasure
who each day I will seek to
employ

For Jesus is the one true
answer to all the problems
in life we face

And only through His
sacrifice are we given
freedom to rid our lives
from sins disgrace.

John 14:16
6 Jesus answered, “I am the way
and the truth and the life. No
one comes to the Father except
through me

Your Kiss Of Love

Tags

avatar-love

You died for my sins,
While I was yet a sinner,
You washed the darkness
Away

You came to me while
I was impure, You came
To me, and you alone
Made me clean

You gave me a new hope
Of brighter days, when
You allowed me to eat of
Your living bread

You brought me life,
And wholesome was this
New beginning, when I
Was no longer counted
Among the world’s
Spiritual dead

You died for my many
Sins showing me a true
Love which embraced my
Spirit, teaching me

What life will be like
Each day when it’s shared
With your grace and love
Which now sets me free

Genuine and selfless
Moments now give birth
To a special joy deep
Within…

The moment of acceptance
When one truly turns to
You, causing a new life
To now blossom and begin

Happens when one chooses
The path leading from
Darkness and awakens to
Make the choice to enter
Into Your light

If I am to be like You
I must learn to humble
Self and share with others
The grace which fills my
Life with delight

There are many needing the
Soulful nourishment in their
Lives which sets true seekers
Of your amazing grace free

I thank You for this
Life blessing and the
Priceless spiritual
Kiss of Your amazing
Love which I need…

And know from this day
Forth You are the only
One, whom my heart and
Spirit will be thinking
Of

And each new day my prayers
Will glorify the greatness
Of the One true Living God.

(Written 1972)

Faith

Tags

, , , , , ,

Faith is believing and
Trusting in what the eyes
Cannot see but what the
Heart alone knows so well

Faith is knowing where
I travel, you lord will
Always be with me

Faith is having confidence
In the only One, whose love
Transcends all others existing
In this world

Faith is knowing whether
My body lives or dies,
My spirit shall live on
Never feeling the flames
Of hell.

Because You have saved
My soul and spirit with
The sweet blessing of
Your eternal love

And your words will always
Ring true within my heart;
As it is written in your
Book of life because that
Is faith’s reward.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Hebrews 13:5
Keep your lives free from the love of money
and be content with what you have, because
God has said, “Never will I leave you;
never will I forsake you.”

True Happiness

Tags

, , , , ,

Such happiness fills my heart
As I hear you speak my name
Each moment becomes magical
As my heart never feels the same

Your words are like a magic potion
With the sweet joy, they send my way
They birth such wonderful rhythms
Which in my heart will always stay

I find love has made a perfect home
In which together we can always live
Finding my life to be a true blessing
Embraced daily by the love you give

And a soothing peace now seeks to stay
Longing for your love to remain near
As you became my hearts’ treasure
Making each spoken word to me so dear.

My Silent Call

Tags

, , , , ,

My longings I place before you
As also my many numerous needs
I find myself fervently praying
For Your blessings to come to me

Please answer the prayers I send you
For you alone can see my soul within
Only you know my hearts intentions
If they are pure or only full of sin

I languish in my own deep sadness
While my body aches with searing pain
Finding I thirst after your companionship
Like a desert flower for a drop of rain

So Lord, please come my way this day
Embracing every word from my lips that fall
Know my heart patiently waits for only you
To once again answer my hearts silent call.
(August 1976)
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Psalms 130:5-6
“I wait for the LORD, my
soul waits and in his word I
hope; my soul waits for the
Lord more than watchmen for
the morning, more than
watchmen for the morning.”
