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

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

Lazarus! Come forth!

img_2099

When the impossibilities of our lives
Weaken our resolutions
Let the possibilities of our God
Strengthen our convictions;
When the impossibilities of our lives
Take us to our knees
Then, we are in the best place
To unleash even faith like a mustard seed
In the unlimited possibilities of our God

#lazarus come forth!

On A Mission…Praises

E3B833A7-9EDD-4045-950C-59B6E8ACF1DB

I am on a mission…
To proclaim His graciousness 
To extol His loving kindness 
To show forth His faithfulness 
To flaunt His goodness 

Hence, 
I let go my praises
I release my gratitude 

To tell of His unconditional love
On this mission, I am.

Day & Night

9D01B3D1-7A3F-4D61-8C81-8295B8308857

Parallel lines
Two straight liners that never meet
No matter how extensive they run

Life within Christ v Life without Christ
Spirituality v Carnality
Light v Darkness
Day v Night
Two parallel lifes that never mix
No matter how extensive life runs

We cannot serve God and mammon
Either we are for Christ or against Him
Either we walk with Him or not
There’s no middle ground or sitting on the fence
Because…

The kingdom of God and the kingdom of Darkness
Are two parallel lines that do not mix

“Do not be yoked together with unbelievers. For what do righteousness and wickedness have in common? Or what fellowship can light have with darkness?
What harmony is there between Christ and Belial? Or what does a believer have in common with an unbeliever?” 2 Corinthians 6:14-15

Tempest Tossed

B4E2A3FE-2DC4-41E4-893E-084D6C13019F

Tempest tossed
I am overwhelmed,
Hassles brewing around me
Wondering, worrying what will be,
Broken, bruised, I fall to my knee
Seeking from this pain to be free,
Then I hear a still small voice
Saying, “My child rejoice”,
I am always on your side
All you need, I will provide,
You are safe in My palms
In the hollow of My hands.

Peace At The Crossroads

IMG_3030

Lost.
Confused.
Uncertainty looms.
Uncertain of what I want.
Uncertain of what You want, Lord.

Guide me.
Lead me.
Show me,
Your way.

You ask,
“What do you want?”
I say,
“Whatever You want, that I want,
You know me better.”
You say,
“Peace.
I give you My peace.
My peace, shall guide you, into My will.”

Peace.

Poet’s notes:
Some weeks ago, out of excitement and some great confidence in myself I took a bold step of faith and ventured into something new. It is what I want but, if it pulls through, the opportunity costs are high.
Now, I’m asking myself whether I am willing to make the sacrifice it demands. I’m really wondering what I’m doing, honestly I’m not sure. I prayed asking God for directions, to know His will and purpose concerning it. God assured my heart that I will find peace in His will. And this is truth through all the ages: when we find ourselves at crossroads, we must always remember that His peace and that unwavering deep assurance beyond understanding guards and guides us into His purpose for our lives. Amen.
#Shalom

You Put A Spell On Me

You put a spell on me,
Like one in a trance,
Eyes burrow into my thoughts,
Words burn within,
Spellbound- unfathomable love!
In a daze I open my life,
In a jiffy You dethrone my old heart-
Waterworks, in buckets,
Droplets of joy, ruined mascara…
Lies and lustful manipulations,
All gone!
Good riddance! Bad rubbish!
Divine metamorphosis!
Absolute transformation!
A new heart! A new life!
Saved… Changed… I am!

Daily Prompt: Trance
