IF WE FIRST BELIEVE

Tags

, , , , ,

There is a love
That finds its
Home, so deep
Inside of me

There is a place so
Full of joy, where
A spirits heart now
Seeks to be

There is a world
Which exists for
Us beyond anything
Our eyes now see

A heavenly place
We can only enter
Into, if in His most
Holy promise we
First, believe.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
John 14:27
Peace I leave with you; my peace I give
to you. Not as the world gives do I give
to you. Let not your hearts be troubled,
neither let them be afraid.

John 16:33 I have said these things to
you, that in me you may have peace. In the
world, you will have tribulation. But take
heart; I have overcome the world.”

BORN AGAIN, I WOULD BE LOST, THE RICHNESS OF HIS LOVE

Tags

, , , , , ,

Born Again

I sank deeply in your running essence
And gently walked the waves, finding
The stairway upwards, thirsting for all
The treasured spiritual things

Be I not sold on you Lord, for everlasting
Life so eternal, for I now walk in the air
Lifted by the power of your spirit
To where angels sing daily praises

For I have been saved and in my love
And faith, I was born again of the true
Water while being born also anew of
Your spirit

And a fountain I find has indwelled
My spirit that daily replenishes my
Thirst along with the treasured word
Which satisfies my hunger daily

For my life I find is but a small sacrifice
And will be so very fruitful to you,
Please let my days of daily worship be
Acceptable to you in your sight forever

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

I Would Be Lost

I think of you so often
As the silent waters of
My heart flows, as my
Mind carries the joyous
Thoughts of your love
To my spirit

For I am now set free from
The captivity of my inner
Self to love you so freely,
So long, and so beautiful

For as the spirit indwells me
Why would I now defile myself,
While your presence is there
Always pumping new life
Within me

For I can see clearly the releasing
Of a new love from my heart to all
That I meet, and they stop and stare
And they say there is a new glow,
An amazing glow and a soft
Harmony that touches them

They know there has been a great
Change and that a power greater than I,
Has reshaped the old self…
Making it new allowing it to embrace
The love of many in Christ

I seek to stay in my new home for
Without you, I would be lost in darkness
I would be unable to stand, I would not be
Able to touch or feel the kiss
Of your… love, for I, would be
Forever lost if you took your love away
From me

The Richness of My Fathers Love

My cup of knowledge is filled to the brim
Yet do I not hunger to fill it more
Do I not cry when a single drop is wasted,
For I know not what blessing was lost to me
In that tiny drop that slipped away at Satan’s
Call

Oh, Holy Spirit, grant unto me a cup
That is never empty that will hold all
Of the knowledge of your secrets and
Your mysteries, for I want them so very
Much to be mine

But let not my cup overflow, and runneth over
Never let it be completely filled, for I want
All the loving of heaven and all the riches of my
Heavenly father

For is not a son a true son
Who betters himself in his Fathers eyes
For the sole glorification of his Father
So all may see the richness of his Fathers love.

BELIEVING

Tags

, , , ,

While others seek the
sinful pleasures a dying
world can only bring…

I seek the riches of
my Father, and the heaven
which brings me to sing

For those who love the
world will find, all that
is will soon turn to dust…

Yet I know I will eternally
live with you, because in
your promise I deeply trust.

OUR FLOWERS, OUR LOSS – (FOR THE MANCHESTER FAMILIES)

Tags

, , , , , ,

Where have all our beautiful flowers gone
Each so very special in their own way
Where have all our young flowers gone
Why has this world’s evil taken them away

Where have all our young flowers gone
Oh Lord, we miss them in so many ways
And it’s hard to accept the reason they left
As our grief overwhelms us so much today

For our souls are broken in many, many pieces
While our hearts are deeply wrought with pain
We know from this moment forward in our lives
Nothing in our world will again be the same

Where have all our little flowers gone to
Though it may seem they are now far away
The jewels of our lives are still very near
For in our hearts, their smiles brightly stay

Even as our hearts deeply weep for all of them
In all their faces an angel’s smile, we’ll see
Knowing our Lord has embraced each one lovingly
Giving their spirits the blessing of heavenly gain.

Wendell Arnold Brown

LORD, YOU PROVIDE ALL I NEED

Tags

, , , ,

Every morning when I awaken
It’s your word alone I seek
To satisfy my deepest hunger
For the nourishment I need

Finding the power in your grace
To truly be a sure blessing for me
As all my fears quickly move away
While your spirit provides all I need

Lord, you, are my gift of salvation
Whose amazing love I daily embrace
It’s my one genuine living treasure
Which my spirit daily longs to taste

In my life, each day is a great need
Which only you, my Lord, can provide
You alone will bring the inner love
Which allows peace within to survive.
(May 24, 2017)

cheers it up.”

“Cast all your anxiety on him because he cares
for you.”

The LORD gives strength to his people; the LORD
blesses his people with peace.

YOUR LOVE A BLESSING

Tags

, , , ,

Each night when I am dreaming
I tenderly think of loving you
Embracing every joyful moment
For I love everything you do

My nightly dreams are very serene
As my heart drinks of tender bliss
Finding my mind easily swept away
During the times we share a kiss

It is such a very beautiful moment
Each night my mind begins to dream
Of your lovely image alive within
Reminding me you are my everything

And with the new day’s dawning
I’m never sad as my dream fades
Because I know as I open my eyes
Your love’s reality always stays.

COMING LOSS

Tags

, , , , , , , , ,

Each day you become alive and more worldly
Easily to another giving your heart away
You have chosen a very different path
Accepting the treasures which daily fade

Your hearts and souls have become empty
As each day you have begun to really see
That no matter how much your hands gather
You will never find what your spirit needs

You have listened to another’s empty calling
Which each day fills your heart with greed
You have become a slave to a heartless one
Who fills your mind with many empty dreams

And each Sunday as you rise to go to church
It is not your heavenly God above you seek
As your deepest spiritual hunger misleads you
Leaving you to follow a false one who is a thief

You have turned away from our genuine teacher
Who humbly sought to teach you the one true way
So one day in this world of quick dying flesh
You’ll find the one true reality which never fades

Because following the worldly path which enslaves
Will only strip you of your entire life and soul
Leaving you to realize when the ending moment comes
The treasure the world offered is but fool’s gold.
(A Reblog)

Joshua 24:15
If you think it’s the wrong thing for you to serve
the LORD, then choose for yourselves today whom you
will serve the gods whom your ancestors served on
the other side of the Euphrates River, or the gods
of the Amorites in whose territories you are living.
But as for me and my household, we will serve the LORD.”

I NEED YOU ONLY

Tags

, , , , ,

Where would I be
my lovely wife if
you were not here
by my side

What roads of hardship
would I have had, how
often would sad times
in my heart lie

Could I have existed
all alone in my life
if your love I had
never knew

Would I have ever been
able to love another…
never for I would still
be searching for only you

You are the serene bliss
of my morning’s radiance
which always blesses me

You are the richness my spirit
feels, the priceless love
which makes my life complete

Where would I be without you
to inspire my heart with your
precious love each new day

Because there is no other in
this world like you, who can
bring an exquisite smile on
my face to forever stay.

I trust in Your word,
believing in its power
knowing You will answer
me when I pray

When my soul cries out
from within, I know You
will always respond to
me because You love me

I am not perfect but within
Your love my perfection is
made to blossom daily, and
I become whole spiritually

I know Lord You are never far
from me, though there are times
I cannot feel your presence…
close to me.

Yet, I know that where ever I go
You are also there where I am
because I am Yours, each and every
day.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Psalm 143:8
Let the morning bring me word of your
unfailing love, for I, have put my trust
in you. Show me the way I should go, for
to you, I entrust my life.

Psalm 63:3
Because your love is better than life, my
lips will glorify you.

EQUALLY ONE

Tags

, , , , ,

Can anyone reach into the night and capture
The brightness of a stars radiant light?
Can anyone embrace the heavenly smile,
The moons soft glow shares with the night?

Can anyone touch the new living essence,
Born in the birth of an early morning sun?
Can anyone come between two whom love,
When together they live and breathe as one?

Can anyone make a star fall from the sky,
Or can they sprout wings like a bird and fly?
Can anyone receive the gift of one’s affection,
And when in love with them ever question why?

For over the years as two become one jointly,
Their lives together are forever intertwined.
Like two golden ropes that are sewn together,
By heavens love, they will always be combined.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Mark 10:8
and the two will become one flesh.’ So they are no
longer two, but one flesh.
