Justice is His Name

Justice.jpg

He’s a lover of righteousness
Justice is His Name
He defends the poor and fatherless
Mercy is His fame

The work of His hand is verity
His judgments and precepts are sure
He rules with love and charity
His ways are holy and pure

The evil one He vanquishes
The poor and the needy relieved
Heaviness of heart vanishes
In His presence oppression flees

Come to the One who is all Truth
Adventurous journey awaits
He is of magnificent worth
As Joy in our heart He creates

Golden Rain

Such a beautiful face
Drenched with forgiving grace
Eyes dripping with love
Compassion holds me like a glove

A vision beyond this earth
He’s of magnificent worth
Gentle yet bold; full of power
He’s my shelter and strong tower

All creation bows in reverence
Perfect holiness is His countenance
Wonders of mercy pour out to me
I’m surrounded by a peace-filled sea

How I long to stay here all day
But Life interrupts in a jolting way
Tomorrow I’ll join Him once again
In glorious moments of golden rain

Dance on Golden Flowers

goldenflowers

Received this wonderful poem message from my God as I prayed and worshiped Him. May it bless you as much as it blessed me!

Walk in the green of the grass with Me
Dance on golden flowers
Look out at the spacious blue sea
Be with Me for hours and hours

My heart calls to the depth of your person
Into your soul I see
Come! Let us talk and reason
I have so much to share with thee

Observe! See the beauty of creation
Take time, share the moment with Me
I long for your quiet attention
And time when I’m all you need.

Stop for some rest and peace
Slow down so I can refresh you
Drink deeply from oceans of grace
Receive my gifts that renew you

Yes, dance on and on with Me
Never ever let Me go
How I love to bless you; see!
How I intensely love you so!

Lean on Me

prayer-faith-god-stonesWhispers in my heart; a message from my Lord:

Lean on Me when life is filled with trouble
Lean on me when fear floods your soul
I AM here to give out portions that are double
I AM here to heal and make you whole

Call on Me in the midst of great pain
Call on Me in the depth of suffering
I will answer and wipe away all shame
I will answer with love and rejoicing

Come to Me when confusion overwhelms you
Come to Me when the heaviness is too much to bear
I will make clear the plans I have for you
I will lift the burdens and make your days fair

There is nothing that is too much for Me!
Call upon My Name every day
The darkness will depart and you will see
There is glory all around; I’m with you all the way

My Morning Bliss

IMG_20150312_103847_100

Whispering morning
Quiet, lovely.
Barely sounding,
Wind blows softly.

Sparrow twitters
Sweet melody.
Dawn glitters
Sunlight splendidly.

Mind calm
Heart at rest.
Reading a Psalm
Receiving God’s best.

Joy overflow
Strength renewed.
The world aglow
His glory revealed.

Praying aloud.
Heavenly kiss.
Presence of God.

My morning bliss!

Never Give Up

Never-give-up-on-your-dream

Never give up, no never!
There is always hope in Christ Jesus.
Never give up, no never!
From trial and pain He has saved us.

Trust and believe, do it daily.
Crooked places are made straight.
Trust and believe, do it daily.
Darkness flees, fears abate.

Look to heaven, receive God’s love.
Healing balm will pour out to you.
Look to heaven, receive God’s love.
All that you are will be made new.

Never give up, no never!
Get up – Awaken – Get going!
Never give up, no never
Your divine destiny is glowing.

Resurrection!

Empty Tomb

Entombed
All seems doomed
Weeping; fright
Everything night

Sunrise Breathtaking
Suddenly earth shaking
Golden array
Stone rolls away

Darkness shattered
Evil scattered
One Man
Steps out of death

Heaven applauds
New life dawns
Eternal bliss
Now ours; His gift!

Pink!

pink_sunset_by_evelivesey-d41dvei

It’s a beautiful rose
Color of a kitten’s nose
Precious lips of a babe
Tingling skin after a shave

Big wad of bubble gum
cheeks after too much sun
Glitter on fingernails
Pretty lacy curtain veils

Sky radiant at sunset
Piping on a bassinet
Flamingo on one leg standing
Happy puppy tongue panting

Fuzzy wuzzy circus bear
Cotton candy at a fair
Newly born piglet
Watermelon at a picnic

Little girl hair bows
Tulips planted all in rows
Warm glow of Mom’s cheeks
Soft words that she speaks

Dad’s strong yet gentle hug
Jesus’ heart full of love
Prayers going up to heaven
Knowing that I’m forgiven

Falling in a hammock of grace
This is the blessing place!

Mary’s Joy

christmas-nativity-painting

A Light
So bright!
Touched earth
Golden worth

Just a babe
Laying in hay
Destiny profound
Angels all around

Shepherd’s astounded
Goodwill abounded
Peace reigned
Holiness gained

Mary’s joy
Precious boy
Magi’s gifts
Gold, myrrh, frankincense

Born to save
His all He gave
Changed the world
Love unfurled

This night glorious
Honors His righteousness
Rejoicing we celebrate
He opened Heaven’s gate!

Come to the well of Healing

kneeling_in_prayer

World filled with fear and strife
Many Christians are speaking doom
But, my eyes are fixed on Jesus
And His joy makes my heart bloom

I’m accused of being a Pollyanna
My head, they say, is in the sand
But,they’re not seeing the greatness of God
They’re looking to man’s ways instead

God said not to look at this world
His love says evil won’t win
Great hope is found in His heart
When we walk in the Spirit with Him

His Promise is life abundant
“Peace I give you…” He has spoken
Religious folks have forgotten
Every yoke of oppression is broken.

Come to the well of healing
His name is Jesus Christ
No church rules or dogma needed
Draw from His sacrifice

Freedom and assurance are yours
As part of Jesus’ team
There’s no promise He will withhold
As upon Him you fully lean!
