YOUR LASTING LOVE

Tags

, , , , ,

I found You my Lord to be the treasure
Which I need with me in life each day
And each morning as my eyes awaken
I pray fervently you will always stay

In this world, I need Your love beside me
So I might not find myself to stumble or fall
I need the power I find in Your living word
To guide me through life’s many dark halls

I find You to be my deepest inspiration
One which causes a tranquil joy to stay
I also find You to be the most radiant light
Which consistently chases dark clouds away

In Your love, I found a priceless treasure
So no other God will I ever want to seek
A breathtakingly beautiful eternal gift
Which deep in my heart I will forever keep.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
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.

1 John 4:16

We have come to know and have believed the
love which God has for us God is love, and
the one who abides in love abides in God,
and God abides in him.

Romans 5:8
But God demonstrates His own love toward
us, in that while we were yet sinners,
Christ died for us.

THE FORGIVENESS OF MY SINS

Tags

, , , , , ,

In my pain, I am daily reminded
How short my days will surely be
When soon will come that moment
The time inside my breath will flee

From my tired bones is heard a cry
As a prisoner wanting to be set free
I fall to my knees sincerely praying
Lord, that it soon will happen to me

My heart feels the pain of the flesh
Also of sins calling each and every day
But my spirit patiently awaits its freedom
Which will come from your answer as I pray

For though it’s true that my flesh will die
And all that I am will surely return to dust
My heart rejoices still full of tender joy
For in your living word I will always trust

My broken spirit now reaches out to you
Realizing you Lord, are my greatest need
And with a true sincerity from deep within
I know you’ll hear my heart’s prayer and see

For within my pain Lord I am daily reminded
In the future, my life will come to an end
Unless Lord I pray earnestly for salvation
Asking you for the forgiveness of my sins.

(1975)

Ephesians 1:7
In union with him, we have redemption through
his blood, the forgiveness of our offenses,
according to the riches of God’s grace

Acts 3:19
Repent, then, and turn to God, so that your
sins may be wiped out, that times of
refreshing may come from the Lord,

Acts 5:31
God exalted him to his own right hand as
Prince and Savior that he might bring Israel
to repentance and forgive their sins.~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

YOUR SMILE

Tags

, , , , ,

Your smile reminds me of a paradise
With its beautiful calm crystal seas
Smooth serene beaches with palm trees
Translucent skies that are so heavenly

To see your smile each day as I awaken
Simply makes all bad things to go away
Bringing to life such a real happiness
Whose loving embrace I pray will stay

The way you smell without any perfume
Like a flower blooming in the island sun
Is a treasure my heart is grateful for
Making me proud to be your special one

That you chose to share your life with
No matter what things may come our way
I am blessed you will daily inspire me
With sweet joy from your heart each day.

WHAT A SMILE

Tags

, , , , , ,

Such a lovely smile which illuminates
The many moments embracing my day
When I gaze upon her lovely essence
As her brightness gently comes my way

What a countenance resigned to such joy
Which will stimulate even one’s heart
With her stately manner and vivid gaiety
When embraced, you’ll never let her depart

For her smile is born of celestial origins
Whose brightness even rivals the rising sun
And I found a certain fondness for this smile
Who with her grace my heart she easily won

What a joy to see such a bliss being born
From one whose radiance will never be done
For her beauty illuminates each new morning
As she happily shares her smile with only one.

THE BEAUTY OF HIS GIFT

Tags

15 - 1

The beauty of the gift you have given me
Each morning I find, as I pray, sit, and write
Are the words given birth daily in my mind
As I accept from you Lord, your love’s invite

I grasp their beauty from the air around me
Closely embracing this beautiful romantic time
Where I measure the deepness of true love
Which each day within my heart I find is mine

For Lord, I have never seen your loving face
Though my spirit feels your tender embrace
During these special times, we spend together
When your living water I am blessed to taste

You bless me to write bringing life to each line
Of all those things you know the world is lacking
Allowing me to share it in the simplest of terms
So many who are hungry might seek to embrace them

Feeling your spirit alive in every verse and line
As each word begins to encourage their hearts
While helping their minds reach that special place
Finding your amazing grace which will daily start

Allowing them to realize for many special moments
Their hearts and minds will begin to live so free
While their spirits dance embracing this gift of love
Which Your loves blessing through me they receive.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
1 John 3:16 NKJV
By this we know love, because He laid down His life for
us, And we also ought to lay down our lives for the
brethren.

DAILY

Tags

, , , , , , ,

I depend on you…
When I am sad or
Lonely…I depend
On only You

I search each day
For you, Lord, waiting
Anxiously for your bliss
To fill my heart

I have a need for you
Because you have become
So many things that are
Important and needed in
My life

And by doing so you have
Enriched my life each day
With your daily bread…
Your living word, your Holy
Spirit…

Nourishing me with endless
Love, allowing me to blossom
Each new day because your
Living breath is the treasure
Which inspires and sustains me
…to do your will!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
1 Corinthians 1:5
For in him you have been enriched
in every way–with all kinds of
speech and with all knowledge–

Romans 5:2-5 Through him we have also
obtained access by faith into this
grace in which we stand, and we rejoice
in hope of the glory of God. More than
that, we rejoice in our sufferings,
knowing that suffering produces endurance,
and endurance produces character, and
character produces hope, and hope does not
put us to shame, because God’s love has
been poured into our hearts through the
Holy Spirit who has been given to us.

THE VALUE OF YOUR LOVE

Tags

, , , , , ,

There is not enough time
In this day I fear, to tell
Of my hearts most secret
Feelings

Yet I shall try before the
Darkness arrives and the
Last moments of this day
It will soon be stealing

I look upwardly toward the
The ocean of stars floating
Above my head dreaming of
How it might be

If I was lost in the deep
Darkness of night alone,
And the glow of your smile
I could no longer see

I think of the rain falling
Nourishing the deepness of
My soul as I taste of its
Refreshing kiss

Wondering what it might
Be truly like in my life,
If I could no longer feel
Your hearts embracing bliss

Realizing there will never be
Enough moments in my day to
Let you know how much your
Love means to me

For it might take a lifetime
Or more to find the genuine
Love many hope and desire in
Their lives to come to be.

(June 1977)

YOU MAKE MY LIFE COMPLETE

Tags

, , , , , , , , , , ,

One sees a rose
Enjoying its beauty,
Its color and its
Softness, and I
Look at You the
Same way

I want You, but I
Do not lust after You,
For I want You
Completely If that
Is possible

I need You, as I need
Water to survive, for I
Need Your Spirit to live
And its a true statement

One may see a diamond,
And inside they desire,
Want, need, and love it
All in the same way

But Your love Lord is an
Eternal lasting treasure,
Which will never dissipate,
One whose power is selfless,
Genuine and all embracing…

And I shall always embrace
Your love, with my eager
Heart, for I desire all
That you are…

For You, Lord Jesus,
Make my life complete.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Psalm 84: 10-11

Better is one day in your courts than
a thousand elsewhere; I would rather be
a doorkeeper in the house of my God than
dwell in the tents of the wicked. For the
Lord God is a sun and shield; the Lord
bestows favor and honor; no good thing
does he withhold from those whose walk
is blameless. Lord Almighty blessed is
the one who trusts in you.

A TRULY PRICELESS LOVE

Tags

, , , , ,

You speak soft words saying you love me
I tell you deep in my heart it’s also true
That there will never be another in my life
Whom I will ever love as much as I do you

You speak softly saying your heart desires me
And my heart gently proclaims it’s also true
Telling you there is no greater desire within me
Then the one which lives in my heart for you

You tell me that you will always need me
I agree, saying the feeling is mutually true
That when it comes to really needing someone
The one I desperately need in my life is you

You speak to me of your heart’s special treasure
And the precious value it daily brings to you
I tell you my life is made truly prosperous
By your priceless love, I never want to lose.

MY GOD

Tags

, , , , , , ,

There is a deep passion
inside of my heart,
it cries out for You

It sheds lonely tears
in the darkness when
it cannot feel your
presence…

It falters in strength
becoming weak
when You are not
near

Yet the passion is
strong in its feelings
for You and You alone

For You are my love,
my God, and the only
one I need to sustain
me in my life each day.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Acts 17: 24-28

“The God who made the world and everything
in it is the Lord of heaven and earth and
does not live in temples built by human
hands. And he is not served by human hands,
as if he needed anything. Rather, he himself
gives everyone life and breath and everything
else. From one man he made all the nations,
that they should inhabit the whole earth;
and he marked out their appointed times in
history and the boundaries of their lands.
God did this so that they would seek him and
perhaps reach out for him and find him, though
he is not far from any one of us.
‘For in him we live and move and have our being.’
As some of your own poets have said, ‘We are his
offspring.’
