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
(St John 14:16)

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.
