WITH THE PASSING OF EACH DAY

, , ,

With Your love behind me Lord
I will never be without a way
To make it in this cruel world
With the passing of each new day

I know that as You guide me
There will never come a time
Where sin will be an obstacle
With You being a friend of mine

I know when life burdens come
Where my lasting help will be
For with You I have the power
Which will always inspire me

For with your grace behind me
I will always have the true cure
To overcome my daily problems
For with Your love, I am assured.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Hebrews 4:16
Let us have confidence, then, and
approach God’s throne, where there
is grace. There we will receive
mercy and find grace to help us
just when we need it.

THE FIRST TIME

Tags

, , , , , , ,

 

light_of_a_new_day_wallpaper__yvt2.jpg

This morning I thought
about the words we shared
while walking last night
that was said…

When I was swept away by
the beauty found alive in
your smile, which makes me
now to feel so glad

From the first moment I saw
your brown eyes, from the
first time my heart embraced
your name

I was swept away by the
beauty my eyes beheld
leaving me knowing I
will never again be the
same

You would easily inspire
me tomorrow, whenever your
name falls from my lips

And my heart wants to express
in words to you without your
love in my life this new joy I
will miss

Never again will a moment
be found alive, where I will
not desire you to be by my
side

For to speak your name from
within my heart, I will daily
frame it with lasting words
whose spirit will never die

And in doing so many will come
to understand what the magic
of a new genuine love in one’s
life can provide…

For they might also come to
know the fire which makes a
home inside their heart will
never die

As a certain joy will always
come alive whenever my lips
softly speak your name…

And as each new day comes to
life in our world shared
together, I will never again
be the same again…because
of you.

(1977)

IN THOSE WHO LOVE YOU

I will trust in you and
Your wisdom shall be my
life’s foundation for You
alone know all things

I will have faith which
is unwavering because
I know you will not fail
me and You are faithful
in all You share

You shall be my confidence
each day when I confide my
worldly ignorance to you
that your wisdom may bring
light to the darkness of my
thoughts

For all spirits living
without You exist in a
dark shadowy grave, but
with You, there is a life
light to guide our paths

With You, there is a
radiant spiritual lamp
to lead us in our life’s
journey that we may not
stumble

You shall be our master
and we your servants who
shall minister to others
as Your spirit ministers
to us each day

And your glory will be
displayed completely in
the genuine selfless
actions of those whose
love and trust in You is
…resolute

For they shall always
depend on the power of
Your amazing grace and
love as I did when I
first surrendered self
to You.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Romans 12:2 – And be not conformed to this
world: but be ye transformed by the renewing
of your mind, that ye may prove what [is]
that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will
of God.

STRENGTHEN US

Tags

, , , , ,

Strengthen our spirits Lord with Your love
Increase the seeds of faith which live within
Help us in our lives to overcome adversity
In our daily battle with sin allow us to win

Unlock the deep vault of our heart’s faith
That was placed within our lives by only you
Pick us up lord and please make us clean
Guide us in all the good things we should do

Do not let the sworn enemy overwhelm us
For we are now protected by your holy hands
But lift us up on your solid rock of grace
So in our lives against sin we may stand

For you are the one who first loved us
In that time long ago before we were born
Always lifting us up in your loving embrace
So we no longer taste of the enemies scorn

For we are children of the one living God
The eternal One whose power never fades
And each morning we will always pray to you
That in our lives your spirit daily stays.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Isaiah 40:29
he gives strength to the weary and increases the
power of the weak.

Psalm 28:7
The LORD is my strength and my shield; my heart
trusts in him, and he helps me. My heart leaps
for joy, and with my song I praise him. The LORD
is the strength of his people, a fortress of
salvation for his anointed one.

FAITH IN GOD

Tags

, , , , ,

As I found myself doubting yesterday
Wondering what would become of me
You came to rescue me in my crisis
For you heard my cries and pleas…

You never have forsaken me Lord
As each day my daily bread you give
While teaching me silently to wait on you
You were also showing me how to live…

For our lives are never ours alone
Since they all really belong to you
So we should trust fully never wavering
Always having faith in what you do

And though sometimes so weak I become
Often wondering where my faith does dwell
I will always stand firm on your holy word
That my deep faith in you will never fail.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Isaiah 40:29
He gives strength to the weary and increases
the power of the weak.

Philippians 4:13
I can do all this through him who gives
me strength.

SWEPT AWAY

Tags

, , , ,

I always thought nothing could hurt me
Yet your smile kills me softly each day
It tears my heart apart completely
As my thoughts it just sweeps away

It leaves me like a puppy in the window
like the one waiting to be claimed
Hoping that you will turn and notice me
Maybe even wanting to learn my name

For the feeling that now overtakes me
Is one I have learned to know too well
It’s a passionate overwhelming emotion
Causing the breath in my chest to fail

For it’s been that way since I first saw you
How these sweeping feelings came over me
And though our lips had never spoken a word
There was born within a strong need to be

I mean a need to feel the tender warmth
That only exists in your embracing arms
Entangled in a silent soft moment of bliss
That leave the deep walls of a heart so warm

Yes I thought nothing would ever hurt me
Yet your smile kills me softly each day
It tears my longing heart apart completely
As every thought in my mind, it sweeps away.

THE LOVE I SEEK TO EMPLOY

Tags

, , , , ,

I pledge to you my beloved
That I shall walk your path
I will emulate your life ways
As long as my life does last

I will sing an amazing love song
Which many with ears will hear
For I treasure the many moments
When I find your presence near

I breathe daily your compassion
As I always embrace your love
Which nourishes all living things
Who praise you with their hugs

Once one finds himself being blessed
With the tenderness of your embrace
Who would think of ever denying
Your loves fullness and pure grace

Each morning my praise comes to you
While filling me with your lasting joy
For only in you lies the true treasure
Which daily my heart seeks to employ

You bring to me all my nourishment
The priceless spiritual bread I need
Humbling me with your kindness which
My heart and spirit you choose to feed.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Psalm 33:18 – 22

But the eyes of the Lord are on those
who fear him, on those whose hope is
in his unfailing love, to deliver them
from death, and famine.

We wait in hope for the Lord; he is our
help and our shield. In him our hearts
rejoice for we trust in his holy name.
May your unfailing love be with us Lord,
even as we put our hope in you.

THE MOMENT LOVE BEGINS

Tags

, , , , ,

To gaze upon your glowing beauty each day
Fills my heart with the special joy it needs
As happiness finds itself overwhelming me
Your sweet beauty my heart seeks to seize

And I look forward each day to our meeting
So that by chance you might glance my way
Becoming the tender object of my affection
While chasing the loneliness in my heart away

I find my nights to be very lonely now
When in my dreams your face I now see
Knowing I cannot touch or embrace the
Beauty of the sweet love my heart needs

So I know I must find a way to be contented
Until the new days brightness comes my way
Allowing your smile to unlock the nightly bars
That each lonely night keeps us so far away.

(April 1977)

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
After Finishing Basic Training, I had to attend
A training class at Keesler AFB April the 15th not
knowing how my life would change near the end of
April when I would first met my wife to be. Each
night we had to go to our separate dormitories,
and would not see each other until after class
the next day. In those days, we had many a date
at Mc’Donalds right outside the base gate. We
dated the old fashioned way. We would marry
June 24th, 1977.

The rhythms of Your spirit will lift us
Your personality shines inspiring lives
Even though Your spirit moved up above
Your living word will always lift our lives

If one in their life seeks to find You
With all their strength that lies within
You will answer their hearts yearning
Filling them with your true grace blessing

For You, Lord will never deny anyone
Who humbly seeks You out each new day
As You love to fill the minds of believers
Who choose to follow You on Your pathway

If one ardently seeks spiritual treasure
There is only One who can always provide
The needed power to receive abundant life
Bringing it to grow each day we are alive.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Psalm 5:3
In the morning, Lord, you hear my voice;
in the morning I lay my requests before
you and wait expectantly.

Psalm 63 3-9
Because your love is better than life,
my lips will glorify you. I will praise
you as long as I live, and in your name
I will lift up my hands. I will be fully
satisfied as with the richest of foods;
with singing lips, my mouth will praise you.
On my bed I remember you; I think of you
through the watches of the night. Because
you are my help, I sing in the shadow of
your wings. I cling to you; your right hand
upholds me.

THE SUPREMACY OF YOUR LOVE

Tags

, , , , , ,

The old me continues to die
Each day, while the new me
Grows spiritually strong

It’s because of my beloved
Savior, all because of His
Priceless enduring love

The old me seems to fight
A fierce battle, but its only
For a losing and fading cause

Because he will not succeed
Against the spiritual power
Of heaven, or the supremacy
Of Your eternal love.

1977

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

Jeremiah 31:3
I have loved you with an everlasting
love; therefore I have continued my
faithfulness to you.
