The Power of God’s Love So Healing   1 comment

Is there something I’m not seeing

Up there in the clouds

The sunlight casting shadows

Still they seem the same

But how I see has changed

 

Activities are overtaken

By doctors, tests, an orthopedist and a dentist to add to the rest

Sometimes this blurs my vision

And challenges my faith

But like needing weights for greater muscle

Gives me reason to stand the test

 

Faith grows stronger especially when its tested

She is greater and ever present

To combat any storm

And gives to me new vision

To be inspired not forlorn

 

Let me not forget the power of giving thanks

Like water to a starving plant

Drown me in your love dear God

And saturate my soul with the gift of your living Spirit

May I consider always the needs of others with prayers and the power of your love

This gives me evidence of your presence

And your will and mine in peace become as one

For the Love of All   1 comment

How could I not believe the nearness of you God

For all that is and was, you have created

And you can see through all creation’s eyes

Today I heard a sermon preached

On the Good Samaritan

Realizing how I am surrounded by your loved ones

And grateful, ever grateful for the love of family

Surrendered in this process

To receive the goodness bestowed

And still to remember that all is a give and take

Love cannot be denied

And must, in this sometimes overwhelming state

Be expressed to love one another

For this is another way of also loving you

Purpose   2 comments

I wake up each day and remind myself to say “thank you”

Thank you to God, to Life, to Love

For all the reasons worth living for

For the gifts indwelling

Some mined and some yet to find

Discovery is an ever-evolving process

Of who we are or what we may name as meant to be

What, Oh God, do you have in mind for me

Your gifts are many

Your love is born in each and every one of yours

But first I find I must trust

To be vulnerable enough to let go of my will

And invite you into my heart each day

At first awakening with ‘Thank you’

That opens the door of my heart

To hear your reply

My child so sweet and dear and forever mine

Please know how much I love you

And how much I desire to be loved and trusted by you

The Unexpected   2 comments

– The Unexpected –
Sometimes things just don’t add up
Other times things reconcile to a tee
Most important is not to make
Perfectionism an idol
 
Letting go and letting God
Doesn’t mean to not have a care in this Divine process
But rather to trust and be the best steward that I can be
For with the God who loves us more than we could know
Miracles are possible and visible every day
I thank you God for your eyes constantly upon me
And all Your beloved creation
 
All is known by You and nothing can be hidden
Take from me I pray, anything that would obstruct
The good purpose that You’ve planned
 
In my mind choices are preconceived as doors number one, two, or three
But by letting go and letting God
Leaves room on my plate for more
Because with You there’s always that unanticipated door number four
 
God is so much bigger than anything the world can do
I hear your gentle whisper, ‘I am here; and I am loving you’

God Raise Me to Your Eternal Joy   Leave a comment

With thanks I lift my heart to You

To know the unexpected

Amazed by what I see

In my heart where your eyes see

Today friends in love unite

Surrounded by your presence

The flora bouquet of Your delights

Alive with more I pray each day

God Thank you for the Further Proof of Your Existence   Leave a comment

For every living creature I have loved still is loved

Growing greater with every remembrance

May it be with Your love in me to deeply love all near to me

I pray to hold one another in the highest esteem

And when challenged by self-righteous judgment to first look in the mirror

For the prison bars of grievances to have no power

Over love that can never be hidden from your eyes

I claim this day to walk with You

To take time to embrace the beauty that can always be found when sought

For You who lives in each of us is always near

Exposing truth, expressing love, in both the obvious and sometimes mysterious

For your ways may be impervious to knowing

But we know without a doubt when You’ve been here

New Day   3 comments

God help us with our addiction to news

And also those who’d rather snooze denying what’s apparent

Finding joy and peace and happiness

Is truly a treasure hunt

Worth the seeking and the finding

For You exist even amidst the rubble

Of what we call our troubles

There You are and have always been

Not seeking You is the only sin

For once we do discover You

Doubt and fears become dismissed

Replaced by faith to open hearts that reveal Your Majesty
