His Creative Scheme

The pen, the ink,
The paper that tells the story.
The narrator that reads.
It’s all a part of His creative scheme.
We are His subjects.
He is our king.
The Author and Finisher of our faith.
He whispers to our spirit.
We long to hear it.
Quick obedience is key.
He loves the pen that’s ready to flow.
He loves the lips that are ready to speak.
His Story…
Is filled with His Glory! ❤
So Let It Be!
Amen.

Worthy of Unconditional Trust

You lift my weary hands
That they might praise Your name.
My self condemning tongue
Is Yours to tame.
The love, the care, the unending mercy
All glorify who You are.
Your long suffering grace
Is never too far.
The sacrifice of giving Your Son.
The plan to set us free.
The giving of His life on the cross
To allow ours to be.
The reconciliation wrought for us.
The restoration plan.
The salvation of a world
On the shoulders of one Man.
Worthy of praise
And unconditional trust.
I love You, Father!
I love You, Jesus!

This Day Of Rest

Lord, thank You for this day of rest.
So often we sure need it.
Our bodies just get so run down,
Especially when we don’t feed it.
Thank You that You know us better
Than we even know ourselves.
We would be in our graves way too early
If left to care for it ourselves.
Yet this day is to keep You first too
And that I certainly want to do.
You are so worthy and deserving of praise.
Please see my weary body’s hand trying to raise.
May Your name be honored and glorified!
May Your magnificence be magnified!
Praise You God for Your Holy day!
Praise You God for Your Holy way!
I love You, Amen!!

A God of Love and Mercy

God is a God of love and mercy!
Not a God of torture and misery.
He loves His people and wants to protect them,
honor their trust,
and shower His grace abundantly
to magnify and glorify His name.
God is a God of refuge.
He loves to share His forgiveness
to be the strength for the weak.
He is able to make the most terrified mind
calm with His peace that passes all understanding.
He loves to give His sweet peace.
God is a Holy God… worthy of
our praise, our service, our love!
God can do anything He wants…
ANYTHING!
He’s even bigger than any fear or sin!
He knows we need Him! He wants us to need Him.
He knows we need His mercy and grace.
And we pray for it now, Jesus. We pray!

Unique Splendor

Your word and Your way
are so beautiful and unique.
You may share Your wisdom,
but not the glory of Your technique.
Heavens, earth, water, and land
are creations just from You.
No other man or god
could even try to do
the treasures in Your wind,
the lightnings with rain.
These are just a few splendors
that testify You reign.
Amaze, daze me,
keep me in awe of Your way.
I love to learn of You
and enjoy every precious day.

Happy Father’s Day, Father God!

Father’s Day is here and so are You.
It is time to celebrate You too.
Like every day, You are Father God.
And we praise You with everything we’ve got.
Honor, Majesty, Holiness, and Glory
Are all a part of Your Royal story.
Creation itself is Your own validation
Of birth, death, and salvation.
Your love for restoration gives life.
Your gracious mercy removes strife.
Father, Son, Holy Ghost in One.
You are magnified through Your Loyal Son.
Made family by redemptive love,
We eagerly wait to join You above.
So until the day we come Your way,
Let us wish You, Happy Father’s Day!

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! ❤
