Put It Out There For God

Push the pen. Push the ink.
Push the words to their brink.
Write the message. Write the story.
Write to give God all His glory.
Create the image. Create the vision.
Create in everything written.
Share the wonder. Share the history.
Share the wonder of God’s mystery.
Bring to life. Bring to attention.
Bring forth all that God mentioned.
Joy in His beauty. Joy in His love.
Joy in your home waiting for you above.
Close with mercy. Close with grace.
Close with God leading the way.

There Is A Child

There was a God and there was a girl.
He protected her from so much of her world.
It would take a lot of time for her to realize
With all she experienced with her innocent eyes.
For so long, all she knew was terror and fear.
Death, filth, and violence were always near.
But then her soul had opened to Christ,
And He would lead her the rest of her life.
When the time came to take a look back,
She would see God’s presence she never lacked.
She saw she was protected from so much
By a God who gave her so much love.
She was learning how to love Him too,
And praise Him with all His glory due.
There is a God and there is a child.
A woman learned she was His all the while.

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.
