Help Me to Lean

Dear Friends,

This journey called `life’ has its fair share of struggles, trials and battles. As we all know, the load can be so heavy at times. Now when I’m out shopping with my husband, sorry – HE has to carry the heavy bags, NOT ME! If I do it, I’m putting my back at risk. It’s too much. But there are times, during life’s trials, when it can be so easy to try “managing it” – you know, “getting by”, “coping” with it all. Then one day, suddenly, the load is overwhelming.

Too many times, I have forfeited the peace and rest I could have had in Christ, just by giving Him my “heavy bags” and handing my load over to Him. But the precious loving heart of Jesus, once again, melts mine, as He whispers words of peace within, or speaks through someone, or His word, saying “trust in Me”. His precious love inspires me again and again. Recently, He inspired me with the words of this poem: “Help Me to Lean”. I pray this will bless your heart.

HELP ME TO LEAN

God bless you richly!

I’ll Be There

I'll Be There

In all of life, whatever we may be going through, as believers,
the Lord promised He will never leave us or forsake us.
Through His Holy Spirit, He promised to abide with us for ever

Rest In The Lord

Truly My Soul


God’s word is sure for us today,

amidst the storms of life.
He says within our hearts “Be still”
with words of hope and light.
We cannot see tomorrow –
or know what He has planned,
but we can know His peace within
when led by His dear hands.

In humbleness before Him, as
we seek to do His will,
His light upon our pathway keeps
on shining brighter still.
He bids us rest from worry –
He tells us not to fret.
All evil He will banish –
we’ll see His power yet.

His eyes are on the righteous and
He listens to their cry.
We only need to trust Him for
His word He can’t deny.
His word is full of healing –
He’ll take away your pain,
restoring all that you have lost;
you will come through again.

He’ll blow upon the waters and
will cause them soon to flee.
Just hold onto His promises;
keep waiting patiently.
This world is full of struggles –
each day may be a test,
but “Come to Me…” our Saviour says
“and I will give you rest”.

A Day Is Coming

sunrise..

 

 

 

 

 


A day is coming, take heart, dear friend
A day when trouble at last shall end
When Christ shall gather together His own
To be with Him ever in heaven’s sweet home

 When sorrowful tears He will wipe all away
When pain shall cease in that endless day
When loved ones again will see one another
Fathers and mothers, sisters and brothers

 Aunts and uncles, daughters and sons
Grands and greats, everyone!
Where there will no more be clouds of the night
Where Christ, the heavenly Lamb, is the light

 Where joy and gladness forever will reign
When Jesus our Saviour shall come back again
Keep walking with Jesus and never give in
Each day, He’ll give you the grace to win

 That day is coming. Look up and be strong
Hold on to the end, for it won’t be long!

Week by week, month by month, year by year, trouble everywhere is increasing. Scripture is being fulfilled before our eyes. But amidst the darkness of this world, the light of hope in Christ is shining. Be encouraged dear believers – a change is coming. God’s Word shall not pass away.

Jesus said

“These things I have spoken unto you, that in me ye might have peace. In the world ye shall have tribulation:but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world.” (John 16:33)
“..if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and receive you unto myself; that where I am, there ye may be also”. (John 14:3)

“A Day Is Coming” is published in my book
COMFORT & HOPE available from Amazon

Steadfast Love

file7641289771555

I love you, my child, in the morning.
My love is not quelled by the night.
I love you when you’re in the valley,
or scaling the highest of heights.

I love you when flowers are blooming.
I love you in showers of rain.
I love you when winter is looming
and when summer comes again.

Though sometimes your skies have been grey
or you have been misunderstood,
My love has been present always;
My thoughts towards you are good.

You may have felt strong in the good times
and then have felt weak in the bad.
Perhaps you have tried but failed,
then felt all alone and sad.

You may feel that I’m far away
or wonder if I hear your prayers.
My heart is so touched by your longings.
Each day, I bottle your tears.

I love you, for you’re My creation.
I think about you every day.
I long to bring life and salvation –
to guide you and show you the way.

I long to pour fresh living water
that flows out in life-giving streams;
to arise upon you with My glory,
for then you will dream new dreams.

I’ll not force My way into your heart.
I come through an open door.
I long to bring untold blessings
of life and of peace evermore.

When He Comes In

file181244230718 (by sssh221)

Purest love is the candle of gold
that burns in His heart for you.

As the morning sun arising
opens the door to a brand new day,
Christ – the Son of Righteousness –
makes darkness take flight
in surrender to His light ..
when He comes in.

He closed the chasm
that kept His love at bay,
through His blood,
shed to wash our sins away.

Suffering our pain, He gave His life
to bring hope again.

When He comes in
so comes grace
and love divine, the love we pine;

the kind that’s pure
and will endure.

Do embers of hope burn?
Does your soul yearn within?
Christ Jesus is the
Way in the wilderness,
Living Water in the desert.

He’ll make a way.
He’ll do a new thing.

Call on the Name of Jesus.
He’ll hear your cry.
Your tears He’ll dry –
Watch and see.

Your heart, once again, will sing –
when He comes in.

Make A Difference


Let’s make a difference

by things that we say;
help brighten the day,
along our life’s way.

Let’s make a difference
by showing we care,
by just being there
when emotions are bare.

Let’s make a difference
by staying a while,
by sharing a smile,
going that extra mile.

Let’s make a difference
by sharing God’s peace
that brings a release;
help worries to cease.

Let’s make a difference,
it may strike a chord,
bring untold reward
and praise to our Lord.

Let’s make a difference
along our life’s way.
“Lord help us, we pray
to start from today”.
