So sorry for the days
When I would run away
I need You, I need You

Forget about my past
And make me free at last
I need You, I need You

And I need to jump into the wind
I need to trust the arms I’m in

Never so confused
I feel I’m being used
Lord, keep me,
Lord, keep me

I know I cannot see
The plans you have for me
Lord, lead me
Lord, lead me

There was a time when I thought
That life was so secure
There was a time that I thought
That I was clean and pure

I need A Savior now I know
No matter how far and wide I grow
I need to stay at Jesus feet
I need to confess to all I need

Time to take a risk
My purpose not to miss
Please guide me
Lord guide me

The time is drawing near
For You to reappear
Make me ready
Make me ready

I need to jump into the wind
I need to trust the arms I’m in
I need a Savior now I know
No matter how far and wide I grow

Overcome – Poetry

December 13, 2016

Overcome the obstacles
Sweep the dust off the rug
We must keep pressing forward
By the power of His blood

So easy to lay down
But you’re important don’t you know
God made you as you are
And you have something to show

Continue as a Lighthouse
Sitting high upon a hill
Giving warning to the ships
That are speeding towards such peril

Time is such a precious thing
Not something we can waste
Can’t lick our wounds forever
Get up now and set the pace

Jump into the river
There’s surprises ‘round the bend
You’ll be glad you kept on moving
As the Light opens again

A BRAND NEW DAY

November 9, 2016

Thank you Lord for another day!

Our Job Has Just Begun….May We Never Disengage From Our Prayers For This Nation Again…..May We Never Stop Heartfelt DAILY Prayers For This Government And Nation!!! May We Never Step Back From Our Involvement In Our Countries Affairs. It Matters!

1 Timothy ” Therefore I exhort first of all that supplications, prayers, intercessions, and giving of thanks be made for all men,
for kings and all who are in authority, that we may lead a quiet and peaceable life in all godliness and reverence. For this is good and acceptable in the sight of God our Savior,”

I pray that many good people will rise up and get involved in politics, civic activities, school boards, academia, arts and film….  on and on.  A Christian’s place is not just in the 4 walls of a church….we need to be in places of influence…..forces for good!    God bless you and God bless America!

There is a ditch on the side of the road
And one on the other side too
Neither one is a good place to be
But most people have not a clue

The nature of blindness is nobody sees
The error of their own chosen way
To only the humble, can it be revealed
To hear the Lords straightening voice say

He can see clearly from way up above
The path for each one of us
He knows the way, for all things He’s made
His Word is a map we can trust

The map must be read through eyes of His love
The Master we must know
Only in this way can we hope to see
The path made for us best to go

LEARNING TO WAIT – Poetry

November 2, 2016

Learning to wait
Learning to see
Watching for You Lord
To know how things should be

Former years spent running ahead
Without waiting to know what You’ve said
Hitting the wall time and again
Learning the hard way there’s no way to win

Success on our own is empty at best
Following Your path, alone gives you rest
Waiting, waiting actively so
By sitting quietly until Your voice I know

When I follow myself
It never works out
Without having Your vantage point
Always take the wrong route

Learning to wait
Learning to see
Watching for You Lord
To know how things should be

TUG OF WAR

October 31, 2016

Oh Lover of my soul I cry
I need you closely standing by
Raging chaos can be found
Just by rising, feet on the ground

In my sleep the comforts reign
I can hear You call my name
Beckoning me to come to You
Such desire to see me through

Such confusion waits to pounce
On my soul to pull me out
Of the place abiding there
Where peace surrounds me, loving care

Light and darkness, always war
Try to hurt me to the core
But You teach me to return
To overcome, Your ways to learn

You hate my enemies oh Lord
You teach me how to pick up the sword
Sword of truth declaring loud
Tearing down deceptions shroud

Oh this life it is a dance
I’ve chosen You, my pure romance
Jealous is our enemy
Though he tries he can’t have me

Over and over and over again
I choose You Lord, my love I give
And You keep me in your palm
Rescuing me all the day long

HEAVEN’S KISS – Poetry

October 27, 2016

Across the starry night He calls
Laying out myriads of bright glowing balls
Singing His story the birds make their way
Flying in glory if only to say

Hello I love you
Can you hear Me call
I made all this for you
I gave you My all

Fields of bright flowers colored array
Bright sunshine’s dew drop painting the day
Smells so desirous catching your breath
Hoping you’ll look up and know I’ve not left

Cuddly fur balls of all different size
For you to enjoy and to tickle your eyes
Loving affection creation does show
I so want to show you all I do know

Hello I love you
Can you hear Me call
I made all this for you
I gave you My all

Saving the best, I sent you My Son
To show you my heartbeat, He and I are One
Was hoping you’d accept Him there’s no other way
I made Him the door so you could come to Me and stay

Hello I love you
Won’t you walk through the door
Jesus is waiting
And there’s so much more.

John 6:36-38
“But I said to you that you have seen Me and yet do not believe.  All that the Father gives Me will come to Me, and the one who comes to Me I will by no means cast out.  For I have come down from heaven, not to do My own will, but the will of Him who sent Me.”

Tenderness
Cocooning all around
A life with much pain
Will receive such a crown

All of the tears
Collected in love
Gentleness sees
Observes from above

All of the days
You thought you were alone
Never a moment
Just a breath from His throne

Tender loving Father
I wish we could see
Unravel the layers
Of seeming debris

Things we’ve considered
Of little report
Are the things heaven sees
Receives great reward

Small acts of kindness
Trickles of love
Never forgotten
Peace like a dove

Acts of forgiveness
In the face of such hate
Makes the Father smile
You’re a champion at the gate

Psalm 56:8,9
“You number my wanderings;
Put my tears into Your bottle;
Are they not in Your book?
When I cry out to You,
Then my enemies will turn back;
This I know, because God is for me.

There is a place called refuge
Not in this earthly realm
But it is a place that we can dwell
With Jesus at the helm

Within that walk of confidence
We can walk away
From all the voices on the earth
That catch our breath away

So many things distract us
They are the enemy
Of the Source that gives us life
Lord, open our eyes to see

What are you being robbed of?
Our Lord, His heart does bleed
He sees your woundedness child
And you He wants to be…

Safely in His sheepfold
Where He can keep you warm
Holding you close to His chest
Keeping you from harm

Why is it we can’t see Him
Think that He doesn’t care
We’ve bought the lies about Him
Think that He’s really not there

Now you don’t need a building
Or a pew to kneel down there
There is an alter in your heart
And He will meet you there

Don’t you know He’s waiting
He wants to draw you in
To that place of loving
Forgiving all your sin

He promises to cleanse you
Your past to throw away
You simply need to trust Him
And talk to Him today
