THE BEST OF FRIENDS

Tags

, , , ,

When my paths were
dark and gloomy
my love would light
my way

When misery sought
to enslave me, my Lord
chased him away

When the world no
longer wanted me
my Lord, He took
me in

And I owe all I am
To my one true love,
For in Jesus, I have
the best of friends.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Romans 10:9-10

If you declare with your mouth,
“Jesus is Lord,” and believe in
your heart that God raised him
from the dead, you will be saved.
For it is with your heart that
you believe and are justified
and it is with your mouth that
you profess your faith and are
saved.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Written in November 1976.
A poem, I love…Its message
says it all very easily. May
your day be beautiful. God bless!

HE WILL NEVER TURN AWAY

Tags

, , , , , ,

When you are falling down
let not the feeling stay
think of your life’s happy
moments, so you might be
able to bring a smile on
your face to stay

Your heart has always been
selfless, and also so very
kind, know that it will be
much better, but you must
be patient over time

Sometimes we seek worldly
treasure, which brings a
happiness that never lasts,
and we find ourselves moving
in circles with our hearts
and spirits running out of
gas

Know you were loved from the
very beginning, and it’s to
that love whom you should always
pray, for His true happiness alive
n your spirit to chase the dark
clouds and unhappy moments away

As you seek to do your very best
keep His love framed deep in your
mind, and as each day begins anew,
your heart will blossom over time

When you sincerely want to find true
restful peace, with your first love
is the only way, for God’s tender
embrace of grace will find you even
after the many times, you fell away

His love never changes like we do
and his promises will remain true,
even after times you turned away
from him, his forgiving embrace
will be there for you.

There are many moments in the bible which
inspired my poem, these are two of many.
Forgiveness is only a step away, for God is
Always near, and will never turn away from
A repenting heart. God is merciful, and
Forgiving.

Luke 15, 11-38.
The parable of the lost son.
Luke 23, 39-43. the robber on the cross.
NIV.

A SMILES POWER

Smile

A smile with its
enchanting powers
has beckoned me in
her life to stay

A smile whose glow
lasts for hours in
my thoughts never
seeks to go away

I find alive in the
many lovely moments
which now occupy my
thoughts these days

This smile which has
taken residence in
my heart now chases
the loneliness in my
my life away.

EACH DAY WITH YOU

Tags

, , , , , , ,

The softness of a new day’s birth
Breathes sweet life into my soul
Its filled with so many moments
Which my heart will never let go

As our spirits come to rest together
Our breaths soulfully become one
I rest peacefully in Your presence
Because with You life is never done

I know Your love is forever with me
With each measure of breath, I take
I find my love begins to rise daily
Within my hearts most deepest place

Each morning brings a special pleasure
As all that lives sing their songs again
And never will I be without the memory
How each day my life with You begins.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Psalm 42:8
By day the LORD directs his love, at
night his song is with me– a prayer
to the God of my life.

Colossians 3:12
“Put on then, as God’s chosen ones,
holy and beloved, compassionate hearts,
kindness, humility, meekness, and patience.

A ONCE SILENT DREAM

Tags

, , , , , , ,

A silent dream
once was mine
to share with the
loneliness of my
heart…

A silent dream
was the only
thing that could
console the most
empty parts…

Of a heart that sought
so restlessly, to find
a love that he alone
could claim…

Whose sweetness
could lift up my spirit,
making my heart to
sing out her name

The silent dream
was my only friend
for many days and
so many years…

And inside the walls
of this cold, cold
dream was found
written my heart’s
many tears…

Yet as a daffodil
reaches for
the sun…so my heart
did reach out to you

On that wonderful
day when we first met
I realized what I now
had to do

For I had to grasp
the reality of love’s
happiness that you
alone did possess…

And I knew that
I had found that
long-awaited key
that would set
my heart free
from unhappiness

The silent dream
spoke out in pleasure
as a rose feels
the long-awaited
kiss of the sun…

Because it finally
tasted a true reality,
when my heart
your heart had won.

YESTERDAY’S THOUGHTS

Tags

, , , ,

Yesterday I thought of you
A thought I will never forget
A thought I’ll always cherish
For it’s of your loveliness

I visualize your pretty eyes
As brown as they can be
For they are always on my mind
Because they belong to only me

I also think about your kiss
For its something about your lips
For such a kiss I would surely miss
If not for those truly lovely lips

Yet many say dreams are made for fools
But are these thoughts actually true
Because your image occupies my dreams
And my priceless thoughts of loving you…

You still sweep my heart away!

AGAIN

Wendell A. Brown

Vindicate me, Oh Lord
Please vindicate me for
I have been a sinner
All my life

What you have given me
I fear I have not been
a good steward of, and I
Have faltered in my
Duties

I am like the Persian King
Who when his kingdom was
Taken away became a
Wanderer

Feathers grew on his back
Like a bird, and he ate grass
Like an animal, his kingdom
Was taken from him

We as sinners allow ourselves
To be separated from your love
Not knowing your goodness any
Longer becoming prodigal
Sons and daughters

As I cry from my heart,
As my eyes look up from
Deep within my spirit…
I long to drink of your
Goodness again

Lift me from my sorrows
Rescue me from the fate
Of those who turn away
Setting me again on the
Right path which will
Lead me home to you…

For I am forever in
Need of Your love.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
(A prayer of repentance written November 1976)
after I prayed Jonah’s prayer of repentance to
the Lord…and he answered my prayer.)
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Jonah 2: 2-9

“In my distress, I called to the Lord,
and he answered me. From deep in the
realm of the dead I called for help, and
you listened to my cry. You hurled me
into the depths, into the very heart of
the seas, and the currents swirled about
me; all your waves and breakers swept
over me. I said, ‘I have been banished
from your sight, yet I will look again
toward your holy temple.’ The engulfing
waters threatened me, the deep surrounded
me; seaweed was wrapped around my head.
To the roots of the mountains I sank down;
the earth beneath barred me in forever.
But you, Lord my God, brought my life up
from the pit. “When my life was ebbing
away, I remembered you, Lord, and my
prayer rose to you, to your holy temple.
“Those who cling to worthless idols turn
away from God’s love for them. But I,
with shouts of grateful praise, will
sacrifice to you. What I have vowed I
will make good. I will say, ‘Salvation
comes from the Lord.’”

YOUR HEALING TOUCH

Tags

, , , , , ,

When my health began a downward spiral
When my body began to endure the pain
Your gentle touch came into my presence
As your voice Lord gently spoke my name

Your visit provided the medicine needed
Bringing with you a prosperity that stays
And as I began to lift myself from my bed
With a genuine smile Lord, I began to pray

I felt the healing power of your spirit
As the pain within me begin to subside
Realizing you already knew what I needed
As your grace made my body feel so alive

It is written your eyes are on the sparrow
With those who believe in you its the same
You’re a healing balm to those who seek you
As our cries come into your ears as we pray

Because of your precious grace and, amazing
love.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Jeremiah 30:17
“I will give you back your health and heal
your wounds,” says the Lord.

Psalm 41:3
The Lord nurses them when they are sick
and restores them to health.

Psalm 103:2-3
Let all that I am praise the Lord; may I
never forget the good things he does for
me. He forgives all my sins and heals all
my diseases.

YOUR AMAZING LOVE

Tags

, , , , ,

Father, you have
heard the cry of
my spirit

You have lifted me
my spirit, and my heart
from their once lonely
confines

You have lit the
candles of my face
with the radiance
of fiery stars

You have set my mind
free from its many
sad and lonely thoughts
and dreams

Oh Lord, blessed
is your name, my
heart sings songs,
inspired by only
You

… and your eloquence

As my spirit is lifted
into the heavens above
so I may taste daily
of your eternal love

Feeling the blessing of
your amazing grace which
enriches and empowers
my spirit

While these words come alive
from deep within me…

You are sweet I know,
You are fair I know,
You are dear I know,
You are love I know…

And when you touch me
my Lord, I know the
whole of me is made
complete…

Because You are the best
part of my life.
(1975)

Psalm 16:2
I said to the LORD, “You are my
Master! Every good thing I have
comes from you.”

Psalm 139: 1-6
Lord, you have seen what is in my
heart. You know all about me.
You know when I sit down and when
I get up. You know what I’m
thinking even though you are far
away. You know when I go out to
work and when I come back home.
You know exactly how I live. Lord,
even before I speak a word, you
know all about it. You are all
around me. You are behind me and
in front of me. You hold me in
your power. I’m amazed at how
well you know me. It’s more than
I can understand.

A TRUE AND LASTING LOVE

Tags

, , , ,

My spirit will always be with you
My heart shall never let you go
Even when I’m no longer with you
I will always deeply love you so

I will never let go of your memory and
Daily in heaven as the sun does rise
I will lovingly embrace your tender smile
Within the deepness of my spirits mind

So be strong and worry not about me
Accomplish all you are blessed to do
And when you find quiet moments alone
Remember I wanted the best for you

Your selfless love is my lotus blossom
The eternal sun which will fill my soul
I will wait anxiously for you to come
Because my heart will never let you go.

I came across this poem I had written some time
ago, and as I read it, I was inspired to share it.
I have written a lot of poems over time. I was
Inspired by Michael Aris’s love for His wife,
Myanmar President, Aung San Suu Kyi one day and
these Words came to life. Hope you enjoy.
