You Know I Am Her

Serving You is my desire.
Loving You is my pleasure.
Just to know You
Is life’s greatest treasure.
You think so much
Of Your darling child,
Regardless of how much
She can be wild.
You tell her of
Your endless love,
And her home awaiting
With You above.
You know I am her,
And she is me.
You have come
To set us free.

My Faithful Prince of Peace

Shutter… I shake an inward concern.
My how your fear invades.
To give voice to your presence,
Terror cascades.
And therein lies the flaw.
The key to the guarded gate.
But there is a warrior
Who anticipated this fate.
He is strong and very present.
Shielded with armor in hand.
He will not allow entrance
To this promised land.
This is a place
That He promised me.
I am safe to be unguarded.
I am safe to be free.
Weapon dismantled,
You are cast to your knees.
I have been protected
By my Faithful Prince of Peace.

In The Arms of God

Here is where I’d rather be
Than any place in the whole wide world.
Just look at those children playing.
They’re so happy.
They have no worries in the world,
And they never will.
Our Father will see to that.
See the rainbow above that beautiful set of clouds
So puffy and white?
That’s His promise He has always kept.
He came back after us,
And brought us to our mansions.
Why would I lose faith in Him now?
From the moment He took my small hand
Into His big, warm, and gentle hand,
And led me down streets of gold,
To my long missed family and friends,
I’ve cried so many tears of joy.
Many said we’d never shed another tear,
But maybe they forgot how wonderful He can be.
After all, tears are beautiful too.
When my mom and dad held me again,
And I got to love my granddad
Without the fear of losing him,
Or forgetting his face,
My heart just melted.
And oh, the most beautiful moment of that day
Was when I met my brother
I had never met before…
My Lord and Savior Jesus Christ!
Here is where I’d rather be
Than any place in the whole wide world…
In the arms of God.

Thank You For Spending Time With Me

Thank You for spending time with me today.
We had a really nice visit.
I’m so glad I did not walk away from You.
I would have missed it.
With You at my side I felt at peace.
I was glad You were riding with me.
We had such wonderful thoughts.
I really enjoyed Your company.
The breeze was gentle within my hair.
The mountains were a beautiful view.
Clear skies encouraged the sun to shine,
And I felt so in love with You.
How considerate and thoughtful You were
To smile and give me hope.
You built me up and gave me courage
To know that I could cope.
Alas the music was playing so sweet.
The song fit the moment.
I sang along in a message You sang to me,
“I’ll Lead You Home.”
Thank You for making me feel special, Lord.
Thank You for spending time with me.
I hope to spend more time with You.
Jesus, You make me happy.

Love Lies In The Hands of a Man

Love lies in the hands of a Man.
This is something I have come to understand.
He touches my heart and comforts my soul.
He’s the part of my life that makes me whole.

Love began in the hands of a Man
Who holds me with His nail scarred hands.
He knows I was in danger and that I would die.
His answer for saving me, “Love is why.”

Love lies in the hands of a man
Who taught me to walk, holding my hand.
He has given me family, security, and years.
He has placed in me compassion for others’ tears.

Love lies in the hands of a man
Who has a desire in his heart for God’s plan.
He was placed in my womb for a short while,
And has left in my heart an endless smile.

Love lies in the hands of a man
Who is something I have yet to understand,
For he is more than I thought God had in store.
I have never felt so loved and adored.

Love lies in the hands of a man
Who will give to me his wedding band.
He will stand with me before our Lord
And vow to love me forevermore.

Love lies in the hands of a Man
Who has given me all this love again and again.
For each and every man who has given me his love,
Has been a gift of love from a Man above.

Inspiration: Knowing that love lies in the hands of a Man

In Love With the Man of My Life

Living a normal life, I come across a man.
A man so beautiful and mysterious, so mysterious but beautiful.
He’s everything I’ve dreamed of, everything I want and more.
He offers me all the happiness in the world.
And anything I could possibly want for.
How can I resist Him?
So many are in love with Him,
And yet I throw Him away with both hands.
The more I hurt Him, the more He loves me,
And goes to such great lengths to prove it.

There is no denying I love Him. I have done that for so long.
But, I am struggling to know I am so insecure with myself that I’m afraid to trust Him.
Why should I give my life or my love to any man?
Is there one worth it?
Yes, there is. He is.
I can no longer resist Him. I can no longer run away,
Or throw away a paradise right within my reach.

He is so good to me.
He loves me fat too much to ever think of hurting me.
Why He’s give His own life for me to assure that nothing or nobody will ever cause me harm.
He professes His love and concern for me to His Father in time and time again.
I have been made apart of their family.
And no other man has ever given this kind of peace feeling?
My heart is serene, calm, and so tranquil.
I can no longer turn him away,

Jesus, I’m Yours.
I am so in love with You.
I love You today, tomorrow, and will every heavenly moment we share together.
Thank You for Your kindness, patience, and understanding.
I am so undeserving.
I love You and our Father always.
Thank You for Your love and sacrifice!!
I am so indebted to You,
Yours in Love,

In a Work of Art

Jesus… He was there.
He was nailed to the cross.
Yet now He’s alive and well.
There was never any loss.
The blood He shed upon the tree,
Was the blood to wash you clean.
All you have to do is believe,
And you’ll know what I mean.
Please take a moment to
Open up you bible.
It’s a novel of love,
Not just a pretty title.
