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!

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!

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!

Whiffs of Beauty

OrangeBlossomFractal_AZDude

What is that lovely scent,
Blossoms of lemon or orange tree?
No, it’s much more than that;
Enticing, comforting, sweet, free!

The air around me is filled.
It wraps me like a shawl.
Glorious whiffs of beauty
Nothing’s like it at all.

God’s presence in my garden;
The smell of holy incense.
So close I feel I can touch Him
Like I’m resting on His chest.

Oh, what an amazing experience,
To breathe His wondrous perfume.
Joy and Peace overwhelm me;
His Love like drenching dew.

The grass suddenly greener.
The flowers electric hues.
The trees glowing life radiant.
I’m caught in His grandeur.

Too soon the fragrance fades
And the sense of His presence departs.
Now, a normal garden day.
Still, Jesus’ touch lingers in my heart.

Rolling Hill

Shock of Purple

Rolling hill
Jagged rocks
Emerald green
Sandy spots

Shock of purple
Flowers abounding
Electric yellow
Orange surrounding

Dark green shadows
Mossy ledges
Blackened boulders
Scruffy hedges

Wind sculpted oaks
Branches waving
Meadow in distance
Beauty amazing

Creation of God
Such joy to behold
Peace floods my soul
More precious than gold

I Give Up Lord

godsgrace

Doing it my own way,
Mantra of our present day,
Surely hasn’t worked for me;
Messes up life; causes calamity.

Even from some church leaders mouths
Got advice that’s not always sound.
Steps 1 through 7 rarely work,
Feel good programs produce no fruit.

Went to seminars and classes galore
They help some, but I always want more.
None of it produces more love or power.
There’s something wrong; no Holy Ghost shower.

Then I read John chapter six.
The people wanted a “their way” fix.
Jesus said NO to religious effort by men.
Want miracles? Know, Believe, the One the Father sent.

Oh Wow! I give up, Lord!
Humbly I lean on Your Word.
Bowing down, receiving mercy.
Not my strength, but YOURS eternally!

That’s how love and power flows
Seeking Him and all He knows.
Resting in His arms by faith.
Doing life in amazing grace!

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!

Christ Born in our Lives

Nativity-Scene

Such delight
The thought of Him.
That Holy night
Love’s glorious sight.

His Star shone bright
Victory already won.
Darkness became light
He is God’s own Son.

His light still shines.
It can never be quenched.
Christ born in our lives –
Changed hearts the signs.

Love one another
As He has loved you.
We are sister and brother
Joined in Him and each other.

Christmas Blessings,
Rev. Cheryl Birch

Sunshine

lavendersunshine-543421


Garden chair
Table
Tea
Cat napping.

Warm sun
Healing
Restoring
Lovely blanket.

Like a scarf
Falls cross my neck
Cozy
Comforting.

Head to toe
Wrapped
Held
Aglow.

Shoulders drenched
Getting hot, cool breeze
Soothing rays
Joy.

Today reminds me
Reminds me of my God
His love
His love is like the sun.

Thanksgiving to Him

Thanksgiving-Brownscombe

Family gathering
Dining with friends
Thanksgiving beckons
Luscious treats and breads.

Table adorned
Finest plates and linen
Fragrant pumpkin and nutmeg
Turkey roasting in the oven.

Smiles and laughter
Deep in conversation
An argument or two
Football on television.

But why do we gather?
Is it only tradition,
A day off of work,
What is the reason?

The goodness of God
All His provision
Bowed heads and blessing
He is the reason.
