Walking Through Your Pages

Walking through Your pages,
I see
Why God says to trust you
And call you family.
You bring wisdom.
You bring knowledge.
You bring understanding.
You bring so much more
Than I could imagine.
How powerful is your influence.
How influential is your power.
You reveal, expose, and unveil
All that has evil intention against.
Flattery doesn’t get past you.
Help me to walk with you
As often as God allows.
Help me to pay attention…
And listen.
Help me to always trust
What God gives you for me.
Help me to always trust
Your best for me.

A Wise, Understanding Family

Wisdom, you are my sister.
God has said we’re family.
I am to trust your words.
I am to trust your whispers.
I am to heed your shoutings.
I am to seek and trust you.

Understanding,
You are my kinswoman.
I am to follow your lead.
I am to trust you to keep me.
I am to accept you as family.
Because in God’s eyes
You are! ❤

Wise understanding,
Oh how I need you,
To keep me from flattery,
To keep me from self destruction,
To keep me from falling into a snare,
Bound for hell.

Lord, I seek. I call on.
And I trust through your faith
In wisdom, understanding.
We are all one family.
Your family.

Let’s Pursue One Another

Wisdom, let’s pursue one another.
I need your instruction,
And you need my obedience.
I need your knowledge,
And you need my heart.
I need your understanding,
And you need me to attend you.
I need you to establish me,
And you need me to exalt you.
I need you to preserve me,
And you need me to keep you.
I need you to lead my paths.
You need me to keep looking straight ahead.
I need your grace and your glory.
You need me to honor God’s word.
His promises mean so much to me,
And you mean so much to Him.
He tells me so much about you,
And promises so much value.
Help me to receive the good
In trusting His word.
Help me to honor HIm
In trusting you.
Wisdom, knowledge, understanding,
Let’s pursue one another.

Emphasized Treasure

Lord, today You have emphasized treasure
That You are…
That You share…
That You hide…
That You openly display…
And that You so lovingly want for us.
Help me to see,
To find,
To enjoy,
To appreciate,
To thank You for,
To share,
And to treasure
You and ALL of Your treasures.
You tell us there is richness
In full assurance of understanding.
May I grow more and more
Every day in understanding
And wisdom and knowledge,
That I may know,
And know I know!
I love You, Lord!

the stability of thy times, and strength of salvation:
the fear of the Lord is his treasure.”

God is a Wonderful Person

God is a wonderful person
Who knows how to love me.
No matter what I do wrong,
He can still put up with me.
He knows what I want.
He knows what I need.
And He knows it has nothing
To do with greed.
He’s very patient and loving,
Kind, and understanding.
He’s never too forceful,
Nor too demanding.
I wish I could do for Him
What He’s done for me,
But there will never be a way
To give back the generosity.
Oh, woe to the love of the God
By which I am known.
He’ll never abandon me,
Or leave me alone.
Praise GOD!
Love Him or not,
He is the One.
Love God’s Son.

Only If

If only he could love me, Lord,
Half as much as You.
If only He could understand
The things You see me through.
If only he could hold me close,
As You have done before.
If only he could care for
The things You love me for.
If only he could share his life
With me as You would.
If only he could support me to
Do the things that are good.
If only he could save my day,
As You do every minute.
If only there were a world
Where both of You are in it.
Well, Lord, if he were anywhere
Near enough to You,
I wouldn’t have the things to love
That I’ve always found in You.

God Is My Father

God is my Father and I am quite proud of it.
He is my Savior and I love it.
Many have tried to love me, but none have even rose
above the love He’s given me to make me feel so close.
Only God can give me peace within my aching soul.
He understands the pain I hide and helps me feel whole.
I love my God and am proud to say I do.
God is my Father, and the reason I love and live too.

Your Instruction, His Lesson

Off on a mountain top,
somewhere alone with You.
He is seeking Your wisdom
and Your guidance too.
He has forsaken all others
to enter Your presence.
He seeks Your instruction
to prepare His lesson.
His view is prepared
by Your majestic hand.
There is something in creation
that will cause him to understand.
Then at times, he’ll go inside
and You will shut the door.
There in the darkness
He will grow even more.
When You are ready
and deem he is too,
You will send him forth
to share more of You.
