Holy Night

Reminded tonight by a clear starry sky of this Christmas poem from 2012.

Rev Cheryl Birch

Star!
Magnificent and bright.

Angels!
Glorious sight.

Shepherds!
Surprized fright.

Peace!
Joyful, Heaven’s Delight.

Manger!
Babe, wrapped tight.

Promise!
Savior. Love’s Light.

The Only Way

glorious_cross

Amazing sacrifice.
Laid down His life.
Shed all His blood.
Forgiveness flood.

Died for me;
Set me free.
Died for you.
Set you free too.

Without His blood
No healing flood
No hope in sin
Only dark din.

Arose from death.
Broke grave’s abyss.
Shattered Hell’s hold.
Gained glorious gold.

Ripped heaven’s veil.
Love never fails.
Father’s mercy abounds.
Grace simply astounds.

Ascended on a cloud.
Rejoicing, bold, loud.
At Father’s right side.
Ready to bless His Bride.

Poured out fervent fire
Holy Spirit power.
Transformed hearts and minds.
His JOY now resounds

I’m heaven-bound.
Glory is my gown.
How ’bout you?
Is He your Savior too?

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!

Crystal Sea

CrystalSea

Floating in a crystal sea
My God and me, my God and me!
No worries or cares, I am free.
Wonderful joy in the crystal sea.

Laughing, jumping, splashing in Grace.
I see His face! I see His face!
Glory billows like delicate lace.
Overwhelming love, splashing in Grace.

Quiet awe, hush; my heart aglow
He floods my soul, holiness floods my soul.
His touch vanquishes all pain and woe.
Peace astounding! My heart aglow!

Floating in a crystal sea
My God and me, my God and me.
There is no other, Jesus is the key!
His Heart is my crystal sea.

Smiling up at God

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!

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.
