I HUNGER FOR THE MUSIC

April 18, 2019

I awakened early,

and all seemed still asleep.

A cup of tea,

a wicker chair,

a sunporch just for me. . .

but I was not alone,

you, too, were there.

I hungered for your music,

heard when we’re alone.

You never disappoint!

I sipped and listened to the gentle breeze

the creaking of the porch door,

the singing of a bird high in the tree.

Soon I heard the tinkling of tiny tear drops

of moving water in the rivulet nearby

and they mirrored myown

tears of thankfulness and joy.

Soon the day would grow busy

and the gentle sounds of your gifts,

your voice,

would be lost in the confusion

and distress.

But in the din I will close my eyes

for just a moment

so that once more

I can hear your music.

It is well.

BETTER EVEN THAN FLOWERS

February 4, 2019

Same old battle! That’s how we all feel some times . . . my body isn’t 21 anymore and some flaws cannot be fixed.  Am I the only one who remembers how easy things once had been? I picked up a book on praise because I was so grumpy I couldn’t find words within me but words aloud came from my tablet all by themselves, it seemed, saying “You like Christian Music” and the first song playing was my miracle for today.  I don’t know the artist nor did I know the song, nor even choose to hear, but listen I did.  The LORD CHOSE IT!  It spoke love to my soul assuring me I am never alone,I will be fine, He has a plan, I am loved . . . I still don’t know the song.  I was too wrapped up in His love, but when I need a hug I know He will be right with me!


LITTLE WORRIES DON’T HAVE TO GROW LARGER!

January 30, 2019

MOST OF US go to the Lord in prayer only for big things and wonder why we become stressed.  He wants to be in relationship with us, His children!  DO NOT SUFFER IN SILENCE!  REACH OUT TO HIM!

So do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand. -Isaiah 41:10

 


HE IS NEVER FAR . . .

November 9, 2018

When love seems the farthest 

from my heart,

and my grasp,

that is when,

in truth

I am the most closely

wrapped in His arms!

MY MORNING PRAYER

November 5, 2018

LORD, thank you for taking residence in my heart and soul and for never giving up on me even when I weaken and am tempted to give up on myself!  Strengthen me to see beyond the darkness where there is Light and to shine Your light on those whom you place in my path.  Your glory IS my joy now and always!  AMEN

TEACH US, LORD

October 31, 2018

You created us as unique creatures with a purpose.  Sadly, instead of giving yoou glory for this and learning from one another, we listen to the evil one and behave wickedly!  Help us to reflect Your love and behave as one mutually supportive body in you as you intended and please forgive us for our failings, In Jesus’ holy name.  Amen
