Fight For This Love

D6C94F77-C6BF-4F3F-9DD5-E494C2C68B2E

With gentle whispers
Like a lover He woos me
He draws me to His presence
Like the morning dew on delicate petals
He whispers sweet graceful words
Hope, healing and tenderness

I spend time with Him
In quiet solitude
Engrossed in His holy grail
I lose track of time
His love draws me near
I fall at His feet
Tears of joy with my alabaster

Yet I drift off on my own
I make mistakes
He warns, He calls, I don’t listen
But, He’s always there for me
His love never fails
Even when I am far far away

I will fight for this love
I will fight to stay in His love
He loves me
I know
I love Him
More than my life

I will fight for this love
I will fight to stay in His love
Ward of every distraction
Turn my gaze on Him
For my great love and God
Deserves every bit of me
And my undivided attention

I Found Him Too

 

B6334588-237D-4F92-B343-0B4F73E8CA52

Now I belong to Jesus
Jesus belongs to me
Not for the years of time alone
But for eternity”
(Hymn by Norman J. Clayton)

I found Him too
At banks of the River
Where springs of Hope
Bubbled in delight

I found Him too
In the Dawn of the day
When I knelt in contrite
Near my bedside lamp

I found Him too
With unspeakable joy
Where cords of Love
Bound my heart to His

I found my Saviour
That is,
After He found me first

Untamed Fear, Tamed

55FAB1BA-826D-4E75-875A-35AD79DD3C9A

You split the sea so I could walk right through it
You bound my fear in perfect love
You rescued me so I could shout and sing
“I am a child of God!”
(Jonathan David & Melissa Helser)

My untamed fear
Unravelled without boundaries
My broken heart
Unmended like the broken hinges of a wooden door
Your hands, like branches of an olive tree
Carries me away from the splinters that pierced within
Your love, like rivers of Arizona
Washes away the fear that breeds unbelief

I am healed
I am loved
I am not afraid
I am a child of God

Write A Cheque For Liberty

What is the cost of freedom?
A soldier’s life?
What is the cost of liberty?
A young man’s death?

Politicians bickering
Smoking cigars,
In luxurious suites
Soldiers fighting
Hungry and homesick
In muddy trenches

Put a price of freedom
What is the number?
Write a cheque for liberty
How much is it?

Bring all the monies in the world
Gather all the gold and the diamonds
Put them in a bank-
How many lives can it buy?

Precious Is He

IMG_2618

Unto you that believes
He is precious
(1 Peter 2:7)

Oh the day I called His name
Sin and self, my only game
Until He took me by the hand
Rescued me from unholy bands
Redemption! His gift to me
Liberated! His love to be
My Precious, My Saviour, He lives
Evermore, in Him I believe

From The Ashes

From the ashes of despair
Let our song rise
From the dusts and tears
Bounce back into the Light
Begone! Unbelief
Our Saviour! He lives

Chant your songs, raise that voice
Breathe again, make it your choice
The past ain’t got power over you
Follow the Light, don’t stay down
From the ashes, rises a new you
For the dust can’t keep you down

Broken Windows

 

4F2D6ECD-9EB1-4D2D-84AE-FFB028E383A5

As many hands build a house
So does many hearts make a home
(Unknown)

So many shut doors
So many broken windows 
Poker faces and hurting hearts
Drowned dreams and silent sighs

Only love turns a house into a home
Only love draws the heart to its home

Marmalade

 

1034B012-1D7D-4602-94CC-B82EE1892DC4

Watching Marmalade my little pooch as she aimlessly and nonchalantly chewed her dog biscuits while her big black eyes stared into my steak, I didn’t need any 6th sense to tell me what I needed to do. I stood up and went to the kitchen.

At the sound of the kitchen door, Marmalade immediately abandoned the biscuits and came to me in the kitchen, wagging her tail excitedly and looking at me with so much hope and anticipation. I grinned.

Picked a steak from the saucepan, diced and dished them into her plate and set it down near the biscuits in the living room. She quickly pounced on it and devoured the delicacies before you could say Robinson Crusoe, totally ignoring her biscuits.

When she finished, she came and settled cosily near my feet, content and full. I patted her furry little head, resumed my meal while I watched my favourite whodunnit series- Law and Order.

What Humans Want

AC28EBF9-7DB0-4A0E-A00A-E33CE4195E62

What I wanted
Never came
What I needed
Ever present

What I yearned for
Trickled out of my hands
What I didn’t realise I needed
Tenaciously committed itself to me

Pain, loss and heartbreak 
They have a way of showing us 
What’s truly important and
What we really need

Starting Over

Every day is a day to start over
Why am I waiting for tomorrow
(Mandissa)

Every day is an opportunity
To look past the mistakes
Of the yesterday

Every day is a gift
Wrapped with ribbons of time
Waiting to be explored 

Every day is a God-given grace
To walk on sandy beaches again
And set our dreams to reality

Every day is for us to enjoy
Knowing that despite the rain
God’s love will shine on us again

#everyday
