In Troubles

storm-peace-grassland

Sharing a conversation of prayer I had with the Lord God a couple of weeks ago regarding the times we are experiencing. Today I felt like it was appropriate to post it as it is not only for me, it is for all who believe. May it bless you!

Give me peace, Lord
He answered: Yes
Give me hope and joy, Lord
He answered: Yes

Give me your best, Lord
He answered: Yes
Help me to please you, Lord
He answered: Yes

Help me to be holy, Lord
He answered: Yes
Give me a trusting heart, Lord
He answered: Yes

Help me to believe, Lord
He answered: Yes
Calm my fears, Lord
He answered: Yes

Never leave me, Lord
He answered: Yes
Always provide for me, Lord
He answered: Yes

Take away all troubles, Lord
He answered: NO!
In troubles you will seek Me
I will be there for you always

In troubles you will lean on Me
I will hold you up
In troubles you will open your heart
I will transform you

In troubles you will learn humility
I will strengthen you and lift you up
In troubles you will learn from Me
I will teach you

In troubles you will seek My Heart
I will make you My vessel of charity and love
You will be mine and I will be yours
Many will know Me through you

Precious God and Treasure

Lord God my only Hope
My Strength and Healer
No other can help
This weary soul of mine

Worn out from life’s trials
I sit before you now
Broken, hurting, grieving, exhausted
Knowing You alone have the answer

My meager praise is Yours
What little I have is Yours
Who I am is all Yours
What I do is Yours

I’m done; I can’t go on
If You don’t inspire me
I quit it all – Give You all
Whether You give back or not

You’re all I want
I need you more than ever
Help me see You, hear You, feel You
My precious God and Treasure

We Give Thanks

It’s not thanksgiving for turkey
Or, mountains of delicious food
Nor is it thanks for football games,
Family, friends, or that which is good

The gratefulness expressed this day
Belongs One special place
He’s the truth, life, and the way
God full of glory and grace!

~*~

May your Thanksgiving be filled to overflowing with the love, peace and presence of God! In Jesus Name I pray, AMEN!

How Wide?

As I was praying I heard these wonderful words pour into my heart:

How high? How deep?
How wide is My
Love for you?

Eternity cannot hold it
It flows freely
every day
Step into My arms
I adore you!
Let Me show you My
Loving way

How high? How deep?
How wide is My
Love for you?

Look to the cross and
See the sacrifice I made
My blood a gift
So we could be ONE.
I Promise My love
Will never fade.

My love for you
Will never ever fade.
I love you
I really really do!

A Prayer

A-Prayer-For-You

Lord…

Calm me
Give me peace
Speak to me
I need release

Let me hear
Touch my heart
Take all fear
How great thou art!

I want to be real
And humble too
Feel what You feel
Relying on You

Amen

Longing in my soul

god-shaped-hole

I hunger for something solid
A touch that soothes my soul
Genuine Presence of God
That fills up this “heart-hole”

Sure, I have salvation
My Savior is Everything
Yes, I have Spirit revelation
Joy of Him makes me sing

Still, there must be more than this
From a God so mighty and strong
He’s loving and kind; I’m His
Yet my soul yearns all day long

Give me more sense of You
Show me Your perfect ways
Pour out sovereignly; Do!
Lest I faint in these desolate days

For nothing else satisfies
This hunger for “more You” I feel
My longing constantly intensifies
Please show me daily You are real!

Heart’s Cry

kneeling_in_prayer

My heart’s cry…

Am I bringing You glory;
What kind of ambassador am I?
Am I telling Your story,
Or, lifting myself up high?

Because I’m filled with Your Spirit
We are united; we’re One.
How can flesh merit
Such favor, grace and love?

How I long to be a sanctuary
That fully reflects You!
Your temple filled with glory;
None of me; all of You.

My soul bought with a price –
Really, I’m that valuable?
For me You gave Your life;
You saw something salvageable.

Oh, the honor to give You honor!
Help me be free of futility –
Walking daily as your daughter,
Always with humility.

None Other

the-sun-in-the-sky

For me there is none other
He’s closer, closer than a brother.
A man who’s brave and strong
His heart is filled with song.

Love is His middle name.
Knowing Him creates transforming change.
He is my burden bearer,
My closest friend and confessor.

Kindness and selflessness,
Amazing grace and gentleness
Are His gifts to me.
I adore Him; He adores me.

We dance together on a crystal sea.
In His arms I want to be.
He sets my heart afire.
His words are my desire.

His appearance like the blazing sun.
His enemies see Him and run.
But, to me He gives kisses of bliss,
Fills my soul with righteousness.

I wear His coat of many colors;
A rainbow coat like no others.
Mine is the promised covenant
And power bestowed on His remnant.

No one can take His place.
All I want is to see His face!
Jesus, Messiah, My Savior, My God
Ruling the world with a loving rod.

I’ll serve You , Jesus, all of my days,
Learning to walk in your gracious ways,
Being your touch and voice in the earth
Sharing Your story; Your magnificent worth.
