We are your garden,
Your beautiful garden
We exist to bring You
Joy and pleasure
Yet we have failed You
And like many before
We are lost in our
Shame and sin

I awakened this morning
So early to the sound of
Your spoken word and the
Commission which You have
Given me as it was echoing
In my heart and mind

You called me to write what
You, Lord, have placed within
For Your words fill my heart’s
Hunger, and even though I was
Once lost, You let me know
I still belonged to You

That my journey was not over
But only beginning, for there
Was a need today for many to
Hear the truth of your spoken
Word and I became whole again
Within the grace and love of the
One who first loved me.

1John, 4:19
We love because he first loved us.

Jeremiah 31:3
The LORD appeared to us in the past,
saying: “I have loved you with an
everlasting love; I have drawn you
with unfailing kindness.
