I Turn to You

  As words become more harsh and bleak And people speak in fits of pique Restraint becomes my point of view I turn to You, I turn to You.   My anger and concerns disperse As heart to heart in You submerse Transform my soul, my mind’s renewed I turn to You, I turn to […]

He Lifts Me

God is my Shepherd, my Healer, my Comforter, my Teacher, my Light, my Father, my Elder Brother, my Provider. I have no want for anything beyond Him. He provided a desired haven for me with an arbor of trees around me, lush plants on my deck, and causes me to sit there quietly in repose, […]

Forgiveness

Forgiveness is a gift for me It sits collecting dust unopened until I’m ready It’s benefits to trust And let the Spirit set me free, keep heart and mind focused on God’s love, stronger than my own through grace, His cornerstone.   Forgiveness is God’s whole embrace We get it and must give the grace […]

God Lifts Us

My heart and mind are now at peace through Jesus’ everlasting grace, forgiveness, mercy ever long; God lifts us with His love lifelong.   My guilt and shame He did release by taking in His hands my face and singing me His grace-filled song; God lifts us with His love lifelong.   God’s love for […]

God’s Songbirds

My Lord is here beside me still; I hear him in the morning trill of songbird love and cadenced calls, the hummingbird clicks musical, sounds my heart fills.   I love the morning hours when I hear the cardinal, the wren, and know God’s looking in my eyes, “Good morning, you’re my treasured prize.” I […]

You are the vivid white petal of a cherry blossom, the brilliant yellow of a hibiscus, the deepest pink of a fuchsia bud, the complex crimson of an open rose.   You are the fine, virgin down of a cygnet, The fine dust of a clouded sulphur, the shocking, blush of feathers of a flamingo, […]

Breathing Under Water

When circumstances bring me down sinking, thinking I might drown, I call to Father, Spirit, Lord, and listen for his voice’s chords; sweet upside down.   As I abide in daily walk I’m thankful for the interlock of hand and heart and renewed mind. He breaks the chains which choke and bind; He’s more than […]

Yes, It’s Love

As I attempt to determine amidst disorganization how to keep my thoughts on you, Lord, it’s just to you my heart is moored: adoration.   When Satan gains we see no light that’s visible to guide, unite. This circumstance calls for our trust, our patience and our refocused views from God’s sight.   While Jesus […]

My Heart’s Content

His voice is in the rising sun, the melody of songbird scales; in fragrant, fragile viburnum, first taste of coffee, fresh and hale. I breathe the air in of the Son; the Spirit helps me to prevail. When daily in relationship He shapes this unique workmanship.   With Him in me I feel the drum […]
