Heavenly Friendship

Friendship of a Savior
Who hath the Greater Love
To faithfully give that Good
And Perfect Thing from above.

Friendship of a Creator
Who made me for His Pleasure,
Who tells me my Image
Makes His treasure.

Friendship of a God
Who knew the Law
Would require a Blood Sacrifice
For us all.

Friendship of a Father
Who longed to Reconcile
His Prodigal Daughter
To being His Child.

Friendship of a Spirit
To Comfort, Guide, and Teach.
Who loves to Whisper, Nudge,
And Unconditionally reach.

Friendship of a Family
Preparing a Place for me.
Alas one day I’ll Fellowship
Where I was Always meant to be.

Faithfully Reassuring Love

This love that You have poured throughout my life,
Has been the wonder of every breath I take.
You desire so much good for me,
And lovingly watch every step I make.
You bring beauty to my life,
And to those You know I love.
You create signature creations
That clearly testify of You above.
You provide mercy to save me,
And grace to amaze me,
Arms to hold me,
And Your heart to embrace me.
So many wonders and miracles
To woo my heart to Yours,
To strengthen my faith
And to faithfully reassure.

The Compelling Love of God

The love of God compels me
To keep hanging in,
Not to give up so easy,
And remember His own journey with agony.
He, too, walked a like of discomfort,
loss of loved ones and family.
He, too, knew the betrayal of church hurts,
And being accused of ungodliness.
The man born of a virgin,
To die for the sins of the world,
Is burdened for me,
And loves me in a way
I’ll never fully know.
But I know He loves me,
And that’s all I need to know.
The love of God compels me
To love.

Your Arms of Love

How long this ocean line stretches.
It reaches to follow me.
From Your heart You reach out
To make sure I know You’re there.
Your waves playfully wave.
They roll forward to push me gently,
And then crash against me
To make their presence clearly known.
It’s You… sending messages of love…
To me… again and again.
I lay on the shore
With my heart smiling for joy.
No matter how far I go,
Or wherever I am,
You’re always in arms length…
Your arms holding me.
I love the way You love me!

For His Glory

For His glory! Not mine!
That is why I write!
No pain or depression,
Or any other oppression
Should get in the way
Of needing to say,
God loves you!

A dying and hurting world
Needs to know He loves every boy and girl!
A sister and brother in Christ
Need encouragement for the fight.
Whether lost or saved,
We need the message He gave,
God loves you!

SO pick up the pen
And write again!
The battle is fierce
Shedding blood and tears.
But we must not delay
For one who needs to hear us say,
God loves you!

Glory to God!

Extra! Extra!

Extra! Extra! Read all about it!
My God loves me and I’m gonna shout it!
He loves me! He loves me! He tells me so!
He sent me a love letter to let me know!
He wrote in a book and wrote it in red.
He’s not ashamed. He wants it said.
In large print, He writes I am His.
He says, “I want you to understand this!
I love you and want you to know you’re mine.
And I’m willing to sign that on the bottom line.
Now get up and go, and share what I’ve given.
So many I love need to know they’re forgiven.
Share the love and share the letter.
Let them know things will get better.”
Extra! Extra! Read all about it!
God loves you! Don’t you ever doubt it!

Extra Hours With You

Extra hours and the pen keeps pouring,
This is too important to be ignoring.
A message from You is just what I need.
I want to be careful to heed.
My listening ears opens my mind.
This message is one of a kind.
Though told me often and very familiar,
I cherish all that is similar.
A love note from my True Love
Sent from our heavenly home above.
Treasured I am by my Savior.
In Him, I have found favor.
Held in the arms of His heart,
Soon we will never again be apart.
Thank You for taking the time
To reassure my troubled mind.
Extra hours spent just being with You.
There’s nothing I’d rather do.
