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.

Jesus’ Song for Gail (taken from Song of Solomon 3)

1. By night [from heaven] I sought [Gail], but I found [Gail] not.
2. I will rise now, and go about the [earth to and fro], I will seek [Gail] whom my [Spirit] loveth: I sought [Gail], but I found [Gail] not.
3. The [angels] that go about the [earth] found me: to whom I said, Saw ye [Gail] whom my [Spirit] loveth?
4. It was but a little that I passed from there, but I found [Gail] whom my [Spirit] loveth: I held [Gail], and would not let [Gail] go, until I had brought [Gail] into my [Father’s] house, and into the [presence] of [the Holy Ghost] that conceived me.
5. I charge ye, O ye [children of God running about tending to God’s harvest] that ye stir not up, nor awake [Gail], till [Gail] please.
6. Who is this that cometh [through the fiery trials of her life shining with the light of God upon her]?
7. Behold [Gail lays upon her bed], a [host of angels] are about it, of [the angels of God].
8. They all had swords, being expert in war: every [angel] hath his sword upon his thigh [to protect Gail from things of the night].
9. [Gail is a vessel of the Lord].
10. [Gail is made of God, and is adorned with God’s mercy and grace, so that Gail can carry God’s love for all of God’s children].
11.Go forth, O ye [children of God], and behold [Gail] with the [glory] wherewith [Gail’s Father glorified Gail] in the day of [Gail’s salvation], and in the day of gladness of [Gail’s] heart.

This poem does not belong to me or anyone, yet it is written for every single one of us! It is Song of Solomon Chapter 3 of the Bible. I merely placed my name wherever the word was talking about me (us). Please take a moment, when the Lord allows, to replace my name with yours to read the love your beloved Savior has for you! It is the most beautiful love letter! ❤

Finding Treasure In You

Ministry and friends,
I never knew one day they’d be the same.
Friends in ministry,
I never knew I’d know so many by name.
My son and you,
I had a hope you would know each other.
You in my son,
I would have hope for no other.
Serving in joy,
I would not have thought went together.
Joy in serving,
I want that feeling to last forever.
Hope in faith,
I seek to hold onto you.
Faith in hope,
I know you hold onto me too.

Things I’ve Heard While Reading You

Chariots, horses, and oxen too,
things I’ve heard while reading You.
Flowers, gardens, and vineyards grow,
each with a parable to learn and know.
Giants, ghosts, and angels who fly
make me want to know how and why.
A virgin, a carpenter, and a coming king
makes one want to hear the angels sing.
The wine, the dove, and a brother out of the grave
makes one glad He came to save.
The sweat, the cross, and the betrayal of friends,
Lord willing, makes one want to repent.

Joy In The Bible

Joy in the bible.
Joy in reading Your pages.
Joy in traveling
With You through the ages.
Joy in learning
The many acts of faith.
Joy in witnessing
The many acts of grace.
Joy in Your mercy.
Joy in Your love.
Joy in getting to know
Your only Son from above.
Joy to know it’s real.
Joy to know it lasts.
Joy to know some day
It will ALL come to pass!

Taking Time to Get to Know You

Taking time to get to know You,
I long to know even more.
There’s so much to You.
I’ll be learning forevermore.
You lead me and teach me
Then reteach me all again.
Your wisdom and knowledge
Seem to have no end.
Your word reveals so much
Yet conceals so much more.
Each day that I read You
Makes me long for even more.
Keep whispering in my ear.
Keep showing me who You are.
I want You right beside me.
Don’t ever go too far.

God Never Let Go of His Hand

God is such a loving Father.
He loves His only begotten Son.
He, Jesus, and the Holy Spirit
are individual, yet very much One.
Compassion, strength, prayer meditation
are just a few things of God
to help His Son be so loving
when the world certainly was not.
Holy, divine, heavenly love
sent in things from God Himself.
He did not leave His Son alone.
He did everything He could to help.
Even when He looked away
that moment we don’t understand,
God’s heart was overwhelmed for Jesus,
so He NEVER let go of His hand.
