GOD OF ALL COMFORT

God of all comfort, God of all peace
Send now Your presence ~ bring a release
Wrap me, O Saviour, in Your loving arms

Let Your sweet Spirit bring healing and calm

 My broken heart Lord ~ I know You can mend
For You are my Shepherd, My Saviour and Friend!
I need You each hour, each moment, each day
O help me to stand in Your strength, Lord, I pray

I know there’s no limit to what You can do
I’m casting my cares, dearest Lord, upon You
O send now Your presence ~ bring a release
My God of all comfort, my God of all peace

 The grace and love of God has brought me through great challenges in my life; times when I could hardly utter words of prayer, just tears; times when I felt weak; times when I felt that I’d failed God just for feeling that way, instead of standing on “victory” ground. God is so loving, merciful and kind. He hears our faintest cry. His comforting presence sustained me.  Through Him, I am standing today. Thank You Jesus!! He truly is my Strength, my Comfort and my Fortress. During a difficult season, “God of All Comfort” was one of the prayer poems that the Lord inspired me to write.

Dear Friend, if you are going through trials,
be encouraged;
call upon the Lord.
He truly is
the 
“God of ALL comfort”

“Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of mercies and
God of all comfort, Who comforts us in all our affliction
so that we will be able to comfort those who are in any affliction
with the comfort with which we ourselves are comforted by God”

(2 Corinthians 1:3-4 NASB)

“Casting all Your care upon Him, for He careth for You”
(1 Peter 5:7 KJV)

Don’t Give Up

DON'T GIVE UP

There’s a promise in the Bible for you;
the answer to your heart’s cry,
Dear Friend – if you open its pages
and just read .. you’ll soon see why,
Despite the despair and the darkness,
there is hope for you today,
and it’s found in the Lord Jesus Christ
for all who will call on His Name!

A good place to begin to find out about the love of God
is by reading in the Bible the gospels, found in the New Testament.

(eg. start with St John)

St John 3: 16
For God so loved the world,
that He gave His only begotten Son,
that whoever believes in Him shall not perish
but have eternal life”
(NASB)

God bless you !

Shine Me A Light

SHINE ME A LIGHT (3)

Dear Friends …
When challenges abound and the way ahead seems dark;

when circumstances overwhelm ..
this prayer poem may echo your heart’s cry.
God bless you.

“In my distress, I called upon the Lord,  and cried to my God for help;
He heard my voice out of His temple,
and my cry for help before Him came into His ears”
(Psalm 18:6 NASB)

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!

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.

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.

One Thing Stands Sure

ONE THING STANDS SURE

Thunderstorms may follow clouds of grey
crisp winter snow may fall each day
winds of change may re-arrange
things may often look strange
but one thing stands sure
nought can obscure
Your love that
shines as
gold!
