He Cares For You

  

If waves of sadness flood your soul,
take courage friend.
When nothing seems to help console
it’s not the end.
The One Who holds your hand today
will be there tomorrow.
He’ll make the darkness light and He
will lift your sorrow.

When you feel that the prayers you pray
are just a token.
The Lord will still be listening to
the words unspoken.
His everlasting love for you
will never wane.
He longs to mend your broken heart.
He knows your pain.

Though time has swiftly moved along,
there’s hope anew.
The Lord will never let you go,
He cares for you.
When you are all alone, remember
He is there.
Reach out and call His precious Name
for He is near.

“O Jesus, precious Jesus – Lord
I need you now.
O let Your waves of peace flow over
me somehow.
I come just as I am for I know
You are Love.
My help comes from You Lord of earth
and heaven above.

O lift my soul that I may joy
in You again.
I’m trusting in You Lord, for You’re
my greatest Friend”

(which was as an image) 
was quite small to read

Where Shall I Go?

Where Shall I Go

 A wonderful refuge and shelter is found in the Lord Jesus Christ,
as expressed in my poem “Where Shall I Go?” above.

 “Whom have I in heaven but thee?
and there is none upon earth that I desire beside thee”
(Psalm 73:25)

For Yesterday

file6331260680650

For yesterday ..
I thank You, Lord.

There were years that seemed
just like a dream.
There were life-changing scenes.
But I’ve come to know
that You allowed me to go
through that maze,
those difficult days,
You were there always.

You helped me grow,
You kept me strong –
like a tree amidst the storms.

You had hopes for me
when the future I couldn’t see.
When I despaired,
so misty was the view
until I saw You,
looking down from heaven –
showing You care.

Nothing compares with Your love.
You saw my heart and
picked me up.

I owe everything to You.
For all You’ve done for me,
I’m grateful.
Lord, I thank You.

You Make Me Feel Special

background-of-flowers

You make me feel special,
You make my heart glad.
You look after me,
my heavenly Dad.

You know what I’m thinking
and hear when I pray.
You speak words of comfort
to guide me each day.

When oft I need someone
to hold up my hands,
You’re always there, Lord –
and You understand.

You show that You care
in the trials I face.
I know I can always
keep trusting Your grace.

You guide my steps, Lord,
as I travel this road.
You give to me rest
as I give you my load.

Dear Father, I’m glad that
to You I belong.
I thank you for blessing
my heart with this song.

 The love of God is a special kind, unlike any other – making us truly feel special when we receive that love!

Precious Saviour

May the perfume of Your love
and the sweetness of Your grace
fill our hearts Lord from above,
bring a smile upon each face.

 May the kindness that You show
that brings warmth to many hearts,
as a soft and gentle glow,
be the kindness we impart.

 May the river of Your peace
overflow and bring elation
and the joy of You increase
through the blessings of salvation.

 Precious Saviour, You are awesome!
You are brighter than the sun!
May the preciousness of knowing You
be felt by everyone!

Forever Love

imgp4177 (beautiful sunset)

 Forever Love will take you through the darkest night.
Forever Love will give you strength and be your light.
When doubts and fears assail and stormy seas you face,
with mercy and compassion, He will give you grace.
 
Forever Love will hold you up and won’t let go.
Forever Love will reassure you and you’ll know
that come what may, the word He speaks is firm and sure;
it stands the test of time and helps you to endure.
 
Forever Love says, “I can heal your wounds and pain”.
Forever Love says, “Drink of My refreshing rain”.
The Healer of the broken-hearted soul is He,
with promises of life for all eternity.
 
Forever Love says, “Come to Me, O weary soul”.
Forever Love will cleanse, forgive and make you whole.
His mighty arms are open wide, from east to west,
to comfort you and bring eternal peace and rest.
 
In Christ alone, you will find Forever Love;
the gift of God, sent to us from heaven above.

 If there’s one thing that’s certain in life – it’s the precious love of God. When all else fails … His love never does! It’s His kind of love, forever love, that sustains us through the mountains and valleys of life. “His mighty arms are open wide from east to west” – that includes everyone…. north and south too!!

Thank You Lord for your precious Forever Love  🙂

Many Blessings!!

Hope Always

Kozzi-beautiful-forest-with-fog-1185 X 1771


HOPE ALWAYS

Hope when doubts assail you,
hope when around you looks grim

Your God will never fail you.
Just anchor your hope in Him.

Hope when the mountains are crumbling,
hope when you feel insecure.
His steadfast love never ceases;
it’s a love that will always endure.

Hope when there’s nowhere to turn,
hope when you need peace of mind,
trust in the words of the Saviour;
His words are healing and kind.

Each day is a brand new dawn,
ever faithful, the skies above;
each day and new every morn,
we can hope in the Saviour’s love.

In The Shadows

 

sunrise on the mountain

There in the shadows
you feel deep within;
there in the shadows,
just call upon Him.

There in the shadows
His light will shine bright,
taking your darkness
and giving you light.

There in the shadows
when no-one is near;
there in the shadows,
He’ll free you from fear.

There in the shadows
is Jesus the Lord,
with love everlasting
that He can afford.

Under the shadow
of His healing wings,
filled with His wonder
and joy you will sing.

There in the secret place
of the most High,
under His shadow
You’ll ever abide.

Fathomless Love

file8371286030197 morning

God’s fathomless love
keeps me day by day,
shines a light within
when my skies are grey,
keeps my heart in tune,
takes me through the night,
points my soul to heaven –
to Jesus, my Light
