MY PLACE

Tags

, , , , , , , ,

Each morning I rise before you
Never taking for granted what I find
Knowing that it’s only by your grace
That the breath in my lungs is mine

And as I open my eyes to you Lord
As rays of happiness alight my face
I’m filled with a certain tranquility
That I will never find to be displaced

For the light within me shines brighter
Then the radiance of the new day’s sun
And my heart is lifted by your grace
Pointing to the place my faith has won

For even though all I see around me
In this world will soon turn to dust
There is only one thought that moves me
To live eternally, Your love is a must!

Only You alone Lord can give to me
A reward which I could never earn
And only by believing in your grace
Was my lasting place in Heaven-born.

He is eternal and enduring, my
love is my rock, my salvation.
and the Light of my life

My love is all things to me that
are beautiful and the best of
treasures yet unseen by the eye,
for my love is my sure foundation

And my love can also be your love,
come He is not filthy, or sinful but
loves continually with the fullest
and truest of loves, helping to
guide our lives with His holy spirit

He is the peace and joy of heaven
and the living breath, that fills
our lungs each day that we may
taste of his goodness, and grace

For my love is Spirit and He loves

neighbor as yourself.’”

HIS LOVE DAILY INSPIRES MY HEART

Tags

, , , , , ,

What one comes to know deep inside
No one else in our lives can take away
Even when one has no sight or feeling
A beautiful spirit shall always stay

There is a heaven which exists nearby
But many of us are too blind to see
Yet It’s beautiful rhythms come alive
Filling many hearts with its melodies

When many of us embrace worldly things
Making them our main diet every day
We can become disenchanted with life
As our spiritual treasure slips away

Without a single physical touch, I know
That his spirit will never leave my side
Because I know my life has a true purpose
To deliver messages from my gift inside

There are so many perfect treasures for us
That we don’t have to feel, touch or see
Yet many are available without cost to us
As our Lord will always give them for free

Our God each day reminds me of his love
Without ever simply saying a single word
Because my spirit is truly in tune with him
And through His love, His words are heard.

inspire me to write a poem. Thank you,
Holly! God bless!
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Zephaniah 3:17 The LORD your God is in your
midst, a mighty one who will save; he will
rejoice over you with gladness; he will quiet
you by his love; he will exult over you with
loud singing.

1 John 3:1 See what kind of love the Father
has given to us, that we should be called
children of God; and so we are. The reason
why the world does not know us is that it did
not know him.

KNOWING ALL IS RIGHT

Tags

, , , , ,

My eyes will search deeply for You
In the darkness found at midnight.
It seeks the touch of your gentle love,
That in my life is such a pure delight.

It seeks to feel the sweet comfort,
Only your love to my heart can bring.
After dealing with the world’s craziness,
Its sweet rhythm brings my heart to sing.

My spirit hungers for you alone,
Each night searching deep within.
That I might taste your loves bliss,
As my heart beats to a gentle hymn.

I will  wait beside my window Lord,
Searching the dark sky for your light.
So when the time comes to fall asleep,
I’ll rest peacefully knowing all is right.

Fear not, for I am with you; be not dismayed,

And we know that for those who love God all
things work together for good, for those who
are called according to his purpose.

A LOVE BORN INSIDE

Tags

, , , , , , ,

love

Your eyes have spoken to me softly
So many words of such sweet delight
Filling my heart with a burning desire
Whose flame will burn ever so bright

The words which my heart now embraced
Today have not fallen upon deaf ears
As my mind alone knows their meaning
As my heart begins to shed gentle tears

Your blissful words have touched me deeply
Moving my mind into sweet silent thought
As I’ve found in doing much thinking today
The true realization, I love you so much

For your loving heart has spoken to me
As your, embracing words found me today
Placing a staying power deep into my heart
While causing a lonely stone to fade away

Your words I found had the selfless love
That could bring alive a once dead heart
With the warmth of a selfless love’s joy
Allowing a place for true love to start.

HE WHO WIPES TEARS AWAY

We might see him each day on a corner
Or standing very close to every wall
He might even seem really boring to us
Like he would never be any fun at all

And others might pass with their eyes open
Yearning fully for what this world brings
Never realizing there will be a set time
For the ending, their way of life will bring

And my heart just cannot seem to forget
The eyes of the One who stood by the wall
Wondering if I made a careless mistake
By not answering His eyes silent call

For some will never show all of their cards
So that many with worldly eyes cannot see
Yet they have the ability to touch one’s heart
So their life will never be the same again

And I find my heart yearns to seek Him out
Before the end comes for this present day
That I might not miss out on another chance
To taste of His treasured love in every way

He is not One who is seeking worldly pleasure
Or One who loves another and then turns away
For He is the only Forever with sustaining life
A blossoming eternal love which will always stay

So if you see someone standing off beside a wall
And certain feelings in your heart start to rise
Stop and listen to the love song that’s playing
From He who will wipe all the tears from your eyes.

The LORD looks down from the heavens upon humanity

Sow in righteousness in your own interest, reap in
gracious love, break up your own unprepared ground;
It is now time to inquire of the LORD until he
comes to pour out righteousness for you.

WILL NEVER FAIL

Tags

, , , , , ,

Strengthen my spirit with your precious love
Daily increasing my faith very deep within
Help me, Lord, to overcome all adversity
And over worldly sins always help me to win

Unlock the deep in-dwelling power of faith
The spiritual essence which comes from you
Pick me up each day while making me clean
Guide me daily in the good I should pursue

Never let this worlds enemy overwhelm me
Always protect me Lord with your hands
Setting me always upon the solid rock
Whose power nothing can ever withstand

For you are the very first one to love me
In that time with you before I was born
Always keep me safe within your embrace
So I never again taste of Satan’s scorn

I am a child of yours the one living God
Of your sustaining love, my heart will tell
Praising you the perfect gift of salvation
Knowing your promises to me will never fail.

AN AFTER THOUGHT

Tags

, , , , , , , ,

Who is faithful to You Lord,
there is none among the living!
For the goals of humankind never
includes You. To many You will
always be considered an afterthought,
while never becoming the necessity
they humbly need

For all which they do, all which
they labor for is only for their
stomachs or to quench their worldly
thirst and desires. They seek to serve
self, and money while always keeping
You an afterthought in their lives

What does it mean to labor in vain,
having everything your hands worked
for including your soul close to
destruction while thinking only
about yourself, turning to God
in your times of trouble and anguish
as all your selfish plans begin to fail
while again making the Lord an afterthought

They daily seek worldly riches and glory
for themselves as the adversary did, while
seeking to lord it over their brothers
and sisters, nourishing on false success
and praise as they try to fulfill worldly
dreams based on a foundation made of clay,
and perishable things which fade away

They simply do what they want to do,
not even thinking about You, Lord or
the consequences their sins will bring
while hoping You will not hear or see
the sins which they do each day without
any fear

And when they realize all they did was
in vain, and meaningless, when their
prayers are not answered quickly
they will become troubled in thought
realizing how much it hurts as they
wonder fearfully if they themselves
have now become the afterthought!

(A re-post from 2014

Acts 17:26-27 “And he made from one man
every nation of mankind to live on all
the face of the earth, having determined
allotted periods and the boundaries of
their dwelling place, that they should
seek God, and perhaps feel their way
toward him and find him. Yet he is
actually not far from each one of us.”

Acts 3: 19-20
Repent, then, and turn to God, so that
your sins may be wiped out, that times
of refreshing may come from the Lord,
and that he may send the Messiah, who
has been appointed for you—even Jesus.

YOUR BRIGHTNESS

Tags

, , , ,

When I think of what you share daily
So bright my day is always made to be
For you are like the sun at its very best
Which God lovingly allows each day to be

For you are all the sweet happiness
Which my heart tightly holds within
And you are also the blissful ecstasy
Which each new morning allows to begin

I always seem to find myself dreaming
Of many new beautiful ways each day
So I will never be without the radiance
Which your heart continues to send my way

Each life moment is made to be so joyful
When I find your love’s light blessing me
Knowing nothing will ever be more priceless
As your genuine embrace of love which I need.

‘Precious memories of love shall abound in
the dreams of many, yet your love shall
be a lasting reality to only me…Deborah’

THE MOON’S BLESSING OF LOVE

Tags

, , , ,

The moon dressed himself very perfectly
Within the dark crystal blue of the sky
He found the moment to be so refreshing
As soft tears begin to fall from his eyes

They were not the ones coming from sadness
But those of a genuine joy he came to feel
Because his spirit felt something beautiful
As the embracing moment became so surreal

A heavenly rhapsody this night was heard
Which reminded him of a truly special love
The One which fills all of us so deeply
From His loving Creator who dwells above

Even though he could not find another like
Himself, to share this tender moment of bliss
He began to understand his truest blessing
For he would never be without his Gods kiss.
