When You Rise In The Morning

When you rise in the morning

As you open your eyes to see

Realize it does not have to be

But it comes to be as you believe

 

Embrace his living word daily

Seek to taste the bread of life

Pray dutifully to our lord Jesus

As you embrace the morning light

 

Pray for your sisters and brothers

That they may find the surest way

As they begin to breathe again

Sharing his spirit each new day

 

Seek to teach another about his love

A treasure which shall always stay

As you seek to lift many others

To walk his path of life each day

 

There is only one way to salvation

For those who seek to truly believe

As He alone has the only true power

From worldly sin to set you free.

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

John 8:32 Then you will know the truth,

and the truth will set you free.”

Romans 6:18 You have been set free from sin

and have become slaves to righteousness.

A LOVESONG UPON THE WIND

Tags

, , , ,

 

From afar I hear an amazing love song

One that is written upon the wind

With melodies of such shattering beauty

It can be compared to a heavenly hymn

 

Its sweetness is like sweet wine to me

Which is found aged for many a year

Its pleasantness touches my inner soul

While bringing alive in my eyes soft tears

 

For it is my love’ heart singing to me

From very far where she now stays

As her heart tells me she needs my love

To be with her even past our final days

 

And I find myself swept away by emotion

As this has never happened this way to me

And I fall to my knees swearing devotion

To her love which means the world to me.

A Belief In You Is A Must

Tags

, , , ,

In stressful times I shall wait on you

Because of the promise I did receive

Knowing  because I’m a part of a love

Whose strength helps me overcome all things

 

When darkness tries to overcome me

I know Lord, you will surely come

With your love’s spiritual strength

 Allowing me over evil to overcome

 

As worldly powers seek to make me fall

In your promises I will always trust

For your peace I know will embrace me

Daily filling my life with your healing touch

 

You have blessed me to become an overcomer

And in your holy word shall daily be my trust

For I believe I shall win over worldly things

When belief in your power is a daily must.

  • Psalm 16:5-11

    You, Lord, are all I have, and you give me

    all I need; my future is in your hands. How

    wonderful are your gifts to me; how good

    they are!

My Lord And Shepherd

Tags

, , , ,

The living shepherd and Lord of our souls

Has spoken not to live your lives as pagans do

But to serve the one who bore your sins

On a cross that your life may be born anew

 

Seek the wealth of His spiritual treasures

Not the false joy worldly possessions bring

Embrace the joy His love’s renewal brings

Which births many new psalms to sing

 

Ask the Lord to accompany you down the path

The straight and narrow one which will lead

To a spiritual home, he’ll happily give to you

Which will daily satisfy all your needs

 

His rewards for your faith are plentiful

So many it will be very hard to believe

As his promises come true to your life

With the unbelievable gifts, you’ll receive.

THE RICHNESS OF YOUR LOVE

Tags

, , , ,

 

Wendell A. Brown

My cup of knowledge is filled to the brim
Yet do I not hunger to fill it more?
Do I not cry when a 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 golden cup
That is never empty,  that will hold the knowledge
Of your secrets and your mysteries
For I want them to be mine so much

But let not my cup overflow and run over
Let it never be completely filled
For I want all the love of heaven
And all the riches of my heavenly Father

For is not a son a true son
That betters himself in His Fathers eyes
For the glorification  of His Father
So all may see the richness of His Father’s love.

Wendell A. Brown (2010)

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

Ephesians 2:4-5

But God, being rich in mercy, because of the great love with which he loved us, even when we were dead in our trespasses, made us alive together with Christ— by grace, you have been saved.

 

 

 

Seek God

Seek out Gods mercy in the morning
Daily embrace His ever-present joy
Always hunger for His living word
That its richness you may employ

Seek his living power each new day
From his presence never seek to flee
As each moment is filled with his wisdom
While in true earnestness you believe

The Holy Spirit within seeks to teach you
Leading you to walk the narrow pathway
You’ll limit ways you stumble in your lives
While spiritually growing in better ways

Make time to earnestly pray with the Lord
His time is the greatest gift one can receive
Along with His gems of love and inner peace
True spiritual gifts you’ll never seek to leave.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Jeremiah 29:12
You will seek me and find me
when you seek me with all your heart.

Loving You Is A Blessing

, , , ,

You are the beauty my eyes greet

The joy which caresses my soul

You’re the one whom I deeply love

The one whose love I’ll never let go

Your smile brings life to my face

With its lovely endearing embrace

Your beauty sweeps my breath away

By its bliss that’s never displaced

 

Truly you are one of a kind my dearest

A precious jewel whose value never fades

And I will forever love and honor you

Because with you my hearts love will stay

 

And I will never ever love another

After falling so deeply in love with you.

A Smiles Unspeakable Joy

Tags

, , , ,

The moments which are shared
With you in my life each day
Brings such a joy and happiness
With a lasting peace which stays

Your enchanting smile brings alive
An inspiring time which is so real
Giving birth to a heavenly gift
A genuine smile I know you adore

I am captured by your loveliness
Praying to God in my life it stays
That I may awaken to your smile
As the morning sun blesses our day

Like a new lovely flower blooming
Blessing one's eyes with its joy
Each morning I find I am blessed
With your smiles unspeakable joy.

(For Deborah Ann, my wife.)

A PRAYER OF FAITH

Tags

, , , ,

In times of drought sustain me
Times of little faith take my hand
When It seems I cannot go on
Give me shelter where I can stand

When my eyes become so dreary
Feeling at times my heart will break
When my world seems to fall apart
Please take me to your holy place

Lord, why have so many forgotten
Where their breath of life comes from
The One who has power in his hands
A true God whose days are never done

Mankind embraces many things in life
Worshiping worldly objects every day
Chasing after them with open arms
Never calling upon he alone who saves

Only believing in what they can see
Those created things which will fade
But soon many will unhappily find
An unexpected ending to their days

Never realizing who exists nearby
An open door who provides true life
If only they could remove the blinders
Which each day imprisons their eyes

If only they took a moment in their day
To ponder what his living word does say
Only then will their lives truly blossom
As their hearts move toward the only way

For there is freedom from all that is lifeless
Those created things they embrace and see
If humans truly reach for his sure salvation
From their sins they will now be set free.

Wendell A. Brown
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
John 3:16-18
For this is the way God loved the world: he
gave his one and only Son that everyone
who believes in him should not perish but
have eternal life. For God did not send his
Son into the world to condemn the world,
but that the world should be saved through
him. The one who believes in Him is not
condemned. The one who does not believe
has been condemned already, because he
has not believed in the name of the one and
only Son of God.

GLORIFYING YOU ALWAYS

Featured

You are the new sun that rises
Blessing my day with its bliss
I feel such happiness come alive
As I dream of your spiritual kiss

You stood by me after my accident
Making sure Lord that I would heal
You allowed my heart to feel such joy
Because your love is so very real

My Lord you have kept me very close
Never letting my heart to ever stray
You blessed me each new morning
Allowing me to daily praise your name

Forgive me the times my mind slips
The many times when I do bring alive
New psalms of love praising you anew
Inspiring so many in their daily lives

For you alone Lord are the only one
Who fills my heart and spirit with joy
And I will happily pen my best to you
The soulful psalms my spirit employs

...to glorify your precious name.

Wendell A. Brown
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Psalm 86: 12-13
I will praise you, Lord my God, with
all my heart; I will glorify your name
forever. For great is your love toward
me; you have delivered me from the
depths, from the realm of the dead.
