The Warmth of Love

A little girl staring at a candle
Watches the flame dance.
Such a beautiful and playful light
Has her in a trance.
The heat drifts over her
And makes her forget
How cold it really is,
As she enters into her death.
Suddenly the light comes alive
And embraces her little soul.
Her Savior has welcomed her home
With a loving hold.
No more will she shiver or shake.
She knows the warmth of love.
She is with her good and perfect gift,
A home with her Father above.

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.

BEING THERE

Thank You, Father, for being there when I needed You most!
You saw me through my pain.
You eased my mind and gave me strength,
And helped me through the rain.
Never before have I been so frightened,
Or encountered such a thing.
But You were there to see me to serenity.
I found the love You bring.
Only You can hold on to me
And give me courage to be strong,
The concern You gave to me
Helps me to carry on.
Oh the feeling of security
And the peace within my soul
Helps me to ease my mind,
And leaves You In control.
If ever there were something
I could do for you,
Please just ask and walk with me.
For it’s what I want to do.

Trusting People While Trusting You

Trusting people while trusting You,

trusting in the right thing to do.

Loving them because of loving You,

hoping they will be loving too.

Lord, help our time of misunderstanding.

Help us to take Your standing.

May all do all to glorify Your name,

to only want good and bring no shame.

You, Father, are so worthy of much.

May all be well by Your glorious touch.

God’s Spoiled Brats

We whine and cry so much,
about so much to the Lord.
He gives and gives,
but we complain we want more.
Spoiled brats is what we are,
a stink among the roses.
We are no better or worse
than Israel or Moses.
God is so merciful,
so full of loving grace.
We run away from Him
only to beg for a place.
He is so faithful
to take us in again.
His love for us
will never end.
Thank God for His heart
and His willingness to rescue.
We are all spoiled children,
yes even me and you.

Clinging

Clinging to a mighty God
generous with mercy and grace,
I seek to know His way.
I long to see His face.
He tells me that I’m His
and that He’ll always care.
I just want to know
wherever I go, He’ll be there.
Mindful of His children,
our Father looks out for us.
The great Judge
knows what is just.

Love in 3’s

Prayers, praises, psalms.
Good things to employ.
Mercy, mirth, Master.
Good things to enjoy.
Bibles, baptisms, blessings.
Gifts from a God of love.
Cheer, charity, children.
There is never enough.
Comfort, consolation, contentment.
Gifts of the Holy Ghost.
Father, Son, Holy Ghost.
I love them most.
