Sitting at the Feet of God

JesusSmilingHoldingChild

Sitting at the feet of God
Wondering does He see me?
Sitting at the feet of God
Wondering does He hear me?

Somewhere along the way of life’s sea
I got an image of Him as angry and mad
That if I did anything wrong He’d smite me.
Only perfect people could call Him Dad.

Then I read He’s Good, Gracious, Merciful
That to those who diligently seek Him He gives reward.
He’s powerful yet gentle, He’s holy yet approachable.
Then I saw Him bid me to come forward.

Smiling, God was smiling at me!
He poured out of His heart rivers of love.
“Come, Child! Sit upon My knee!”
Peace and joy radiated as sun shining above.

Decided right then to stop doubting Him
And begin believing He sees me instead.
Decided to stop wondering about Him
And start receiving His answers instead.

I Have Roses for You

rose with dew

I have roses for you.
Here in My Hand are lovely blooms.
The petals are dripping with dew.
The fragrance fills your heart’s rooms.

Soft colors to please your eyes.
Gentle breezes to cool and refresh.
Clouds dancing in crystal blue skies.
Take from My Hand roses of rest.

I have Roses for you from above.
With their fragrant oil you are sealed.
Step into chambers filled with My Love.
Take this gift and be healed.

It’s Your Love

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.

Then I Saw Jesus

Then I saw Jesus
Standing before me
Standing before me with love.

Then I saw Jesus
Standing before me
He has such eyes of love.

Then I saw Jesus
Bearing my pain
Lifting my heavy load.

Then I saw Jesus
Weeping for me
Lifting my heavy load.

Then I saw Jesus
Dressed in pure white
Girded about with gold.

Then I saw Jesus
Radiant with glory
Eyes like flames of fire.

Then I saw Jesus
Seated in Heaven
Clothed in Royal Robes.

Then I saw Jesus
Smiling in heaven
Standing at the Father’s throne.

He bids us come
Into His Presence
He bids us come home.

He bids come home.
Come home.

He’s my Everything

He’s my brother
He’s my friend
He’s my Savior
He’s my Lord
He’s my Father
He’s my counselor
He’s my wisdom
He’s my guide
He’s my protector
He’s my defender
He’s my healer
He’s my provider
He’s my joy
He’s my peace
He’s my righteousness
He’s my shelter
Pours out His Spirit
Pours out His Love
He’s my Jesus
He’s my everything
He’s all I’ll ever need.

In the Middle of Anguish is Gold

Golden%20Clouds%20at%20Sunrise%2025

Clouds, dark clouds, encase my heart.
Such sadness gloves my soul.
Loss pierces me like a dart
Wrenching, taking emotional toll.

Everywhere I turn seems gray.
All sunshine fled in an instant.
Now weeping encompasses my day.
Joy seems far off, so distant.

Wet pillow of tears, wiping my face.
Deep sigh. Barely slept again.
Praying, head in hands; suddenly feel an embrace.
Strength infuses me easing the pain.

Wings of peace mount up guard.
Such amazing comfort; strong and bold;
In Jesus’ hands, love scarred.
In the middle of anguish is found gold.

Slowly, at first, then totally free,
With help pouring out of heaven,
I get up each day, perfect love I see.
It pours out from the Father to strengthen.

Sunny heart, unexpected, blazing fire breaks forth!
No clouds! No doubts! No sadness!
Healing completed, now I daily rejoice
And share with others His gladness!

Focus

Holy_Bible_age_and_texture

Wondering mind; can’t concentrate.
Good grief, how’d I ever get this way?
Flitting thoughts, uneasiness; what a state!
Is there no place of rest today?

Try to settle, afghan on my lap.
Bible open and tea on my table.
Deep breath. Closed eyes. Pretended nap.
Suddenly hear: Fear not! In Me you are able.

Eyes open, focus on God’s Holy word.
It says “Be strong and of good courage.”
Peace pours forth from His mighty sword.
Now, I wonder why I had been worried!

Triumphant JOY!

jump_for_joy_910

I heard the Father Speak to my heart:

Triumphant Joy! Unspeakable and full of glory
Is My son’s and daughter’s amazing strength story!
Though darkness and wickedness in the world abounds
Rejoicing in the hearts of My saints resounds.

They’re citizens of a heavenly home.
They see with eyes that from Me never roam.
They hear with ears fixed upon My voice.
They have gladness of heart for I AM their choice.

They’ve traded ashes for beauty and grief for holy mirth.
They continually build My Kingdom of eternal worth.
No matter the tragic things people experience or do
They have hope in their heart to share with you.

This glorious joy pours out of supernatural places.
It warms hearts like the glow of happy children’s faces.
It’s knowing that even in dire circumstance victory can be won.
It pours forth from the perfect heart of My only Son.

Triumphant Joy! Unspeakable and full of glory.
This is the promise of Messiah, Jesus’, story.

Beauty of His Holiness

Glorious sea

In the beauty of His Holiness I find rest for my soul.
In the beauty of His Holiness I find joy that gives me strength.
In the beauty of His Holiness I find love that heals my heart.
In the beauty of His Holiness I find peace that makes me whole.

His beauty is beyond description as it washes over me.
His beauty is like an ocean, a glorious magnificent sea.

A Note from Heaven about Christmas

Nativity

It’s not the shopping
It’s the heartfelt praying.

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!
