ALIVE!

Suffering, cold.
All seemed lost.
Calvary road.
Then the Cross.

The Blood.
Shed for me.
Total Love.
He took death for me.

Now He’s Risen!
He’s Alive!
Ascension!
At the Father’s Side!

The Blood!
The Blood of God’s own Son
Bought my way to Heaven.
Yes, Jesus is the ONE.

Your Mind, Your Heart

bow to Jesus

Give me Your Mind,
Your Heart
For me to see.

Give me Your Mind,
Your Heart
For me to hear.

Give me Your Mind,
Your Heart
For me to feel.

Give me Your Mind,
Your Heart
For me to live.

Give Me Your Mind,
Your Heart…
More YOU, less me.

My Resolution

My goal is no other than Him.
To know Him more my resolution.
Bathing always in the joys of Him.
His love solely my completion.

Searching out His heart and mind.
Overwhelmed with peace and wisdom.
In His Word daily treasures I find
Expressing Him; building His Kingdom.

He alone my source, my all in all;
No other thing or person more.
Relying on His Grace when I fall.
Expressing Faith, learning to soar.

Humble before Him; He is my Bread.
Healing, gentle, patient, kind
Helping others know Him my stead.
The fruit of His Spirit my daily wine.

Learning to walk in His power
With all my heart running the race.
Speaking for Him words of the hour.
Hearing His voice, seeing His face!

A Note from Heaven about Christmas

This poem from 2012 kept coming to my mind this week…

Rev Cheryl Birch

Nativity

It’s not the caroling
It’s the peace heralding

It’s not the presents
It’s My Presence

It’s not the stockings
It’s My Good Tidings

It’s not the parties
It’s the heart ties

It’s not the church steeple
It’s the unity of My people

It’s not the festivity
It’s the celebration of the Nativity

It’s not Santa and reindeer fun
It’s joy and salvation in My Son

It’s not the awe of lights on a tree
It’s lifting up your voice and worshipping Me!

I Am…

god-smiling

I’m sad today.
I am your Joy!
I’m tired today.
I am your Strength!

I’m scared today.
I am your Shield!
I’m sick today.
I am your Healer!

I’ve been slandered today.
I am your Defender!
I’ve failed today.
I am your Second Chance!

I’m lonely today.
I am closer than a brother!
I’m broke today.
I am your Provider!

I’m so worried today.
I am your Peace!
I’m grieving today.
I am your Comforter!

I’m very angry today.
I am your Counselor!
I’m homeless today.
I am your Shelter!

I’m abandoned today.
I am your Father!
I’ve lost everything.
I am your Everything!

There is no situation I cannot handle today.
No emotional problem is too hard for Me.
The issue is really what you always say.
Proclaim My promises and wonderful answers you will see!

Selfless Place

godsgrace

How do I get out of my own way?
God has promised me so much.
I believe everything He has to say.
Yet, His amazing power I have yet to touch.

Salvation, healing, and deliverance flow.
My faith is high and His mercy is sure.
Still, there is a place that I long to go
Where I’ve stepped aside and His Presence is pure.

Take me, O Lord, to that selfless place.
Whatever it takes, I want to get there.
Total reliance on your love and grace
So that people know You’re alive and care!

Smiling up at God

sunshine-wallpaper_1920x1200

Eternity unfolded..
Shock! Awe! Overwhelmed. Fright.
Majestic waves – Golden.
Brilliant splashing Light.

No bottom.
No top.
No end.
No beginning.

Forever rushed by.
Peace flowed; steady River.
Wondered, “Where am I?”
Then I saw the Giver.

Holy!
Glorious!
Purity!
Loveliness!

Collapsed before Him —
My heart stopped beating.
Love’s touch. Life rushed in!
Breath of God – Healing.

Embraced!
Joy!
Tears!
Mercy, no fear!

Not sure from where,
Loud noise sounded.
Suddenly felt my chair.
Sat there — simply astounded.

Garden breeze.
Sunshine.
Home.
Smiling up at God.

Lovely

The glorious scenery of Milford Sound

Lovely…
No, lovelier than that.
Roses, or…
Maybe, delicate lace?

Lavender.
Sweet fragrance.
Sparkling dew upon the grass.
Butterfly.

Cloud wisps;
Perfect white.
No. Lovelier!
Perhaps clear blue sky.

Intricate snowflakes;
A blanket of frosty ice.
Lovelier than even that.
Pristine lake?

Sunset, sunrise.
Close…
Majestic mountains.
Hills emerald green.

Clear eyes of a child;
The smile of a babe.
Closer…
But, not that.

Hard to describe the thought of God.
Holy purity.
His beauty and majesty.
His grace toward me.

His goodness.
His face.
His touch…
Lovely!

Your…

Your Blood washes me.
Your Grace covers me.
Your Eyes watch over me.
Your Voice comforts me.
Your Love helps me to see.

Your Mercy heals me.
Your Peace secures me.
Your Joy strengthens me.
Your Spirit has set me free.

It’s Your Love

heart-cross

What is it that shines brightly and overcomes all darkness?
It’s Your Love!

What is it that floods me with peace in the midst of the storm?
It’s Your Love!

What is it that fills me with joy even in difficult circumstance?
It’s Your Love!

What is it that illuminates my mind with Truth?
It’s Your Love!

What is it that overflows my heart with compassion for unloveable folk?
It’s Your Love!

What is it that lights up the way I should go?
It’s Your Love!

What is this zeal and passion I feel?
It is Your amazing, everlasting, abiding, unconditional Love!

Let me be radiant with Your Love, Lord… with Your Love.
Amen.
