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.

Glorious Day

Oh glorious day bringing the morning,
Along with joy for those who’ve been mourning,
How welcome you are to troubled hearts
Who need the hope of a brand new start.
Your shining rays of morning light
Shoo away the long cold night,
And warm the soul that needs to know,
“God is with you and loves you so.”
The beautiful hues of your sunrise brings
A song to the little bird and he sings.
His tune lifts my spirit upon his wings.
I’m so delighted to hear it. Hope eternal springs.
Thank you for visiting and coming this way.
It’s a great time to praise and pray.

Smiling For You

Smile, on the inside I break with a tear…
The world hides behind a fake smile…
I hide behind them.
What is it about laughter that the world hates?
Don’t they want to make the world a better place?
Have they given up on believing
A smiling can make that difference?
Why is everyone so cranky?

Everyone wonder why the world seems so unpleasant,
But continues to be so unpleasant to themselves.
Do they not understand they contribute,
Or take from the world,
With every smile or frown?

God, Your people are so distressed.
Am I making it worse on them by smiling?
Don’t You want us smiling?
Don’t You want us living in joy,
Glorifying You in our happiness?

Thank You for giving me a smile.
Thank You for placing Your love in my soul,
And allowing it to shine forth on my face
For all to see and feel.
I pray that it be contagious.
Your Son is the reason I smile.

Inspiration: I used to be so known for smiling all of the time that some people would complain or become seriously annoyed with me. I miss that joy, but I do have a sincere love and joy for the Lord without a smile 24/7. 🙂

BEAUTIFUL

Beautiful, that’s what this day is.
It’s more than any wish.
How could one not enjoy this treasure?
To one as I, it’s more than a pleasure.
If only I had a soul to share it with.
Only then, it would be greater than this.
For as the sun warms my soul,
I am lost in a world of gold.
There’s so much joy in finding peace.
My only wish is for it to never cease.
How wonderfully beautiful it is today.
How sad it is to know it will go away.
But while it’s here, I’ll enjoy every minute,
And cherish every beauty within it.
