Ever There!

There is a strength
makes you able to master
heartaches and trials
or the greatest disaster.
You won't always win;
You might bow to defeat,
but there is a strength
puts you back on your feet.
Though your body grows frail
and you must suffer pain,
there is a strength
that is always the same.
it doesn't depend on
how much you can cope
for you hold a treasure
that renews all your hope.
Ever there when you need it
and seeing you through,
your strength comes form God
who lives within you.
___________________________________________
It is God that girdeth me with
strength, and maketh my way perfect.

Rest!

Rest for bodies that are weary
...Rest for souls in deep despair,
Sweet assurance of His presence
...even in a world of care.
Blessed rest in times of trouble
Peaceful harbor in the storm,
In the midst of dark depression
...Rest and safety in His arms.
When the heart is heavy laden
Trust the one that loves you best,
For He knows about each heartache
In His love is blessed heart rest.
Toils of life may make you weary
When you do your very best,
Place your head upon your pillow
As He gives you sleep and rest.
When Life's sun is quickly setting
And you pass that final test,
His amazing grace will take you
To that final place of rest.
___________________________________________
Come to Me all of you
who are burdened and
I will give you rest.

Christmas Eve Meditation

This eve as silvery church bells chime,
May Christmas take us back in time
To that first holy, silent night
When, in the heavens, a glorious light
Shown down upon the manger stall
Wherein was born the Lord of all.

Oh, may we hear the angels' song,
And pause tonight 'mid busy throng
To gaze above in velvet sky
And find the Bethlehem star on high;
It's shining still, this Christmas Eve
For every soul who will believe.

Oh, may we, by its holy light,
Be led to seek the Christ this night.
We'll leave all worldly cares behind,
And in the manger of our mind,
We'll kneel, and offer praise and sing
Hosannas to the newborn King.
________________________________________________
...and, lo, the star, which
they saw in the east, went
before them, till it came
and stood over where the
young Child was.
Matthew 2:9

God's Hands!

The hands of God, how great they are
That fashioned each and every star.
He gave four seasons to this land
And made each grain of desert sand.
Each flower and seed that He did plant
Our life on earth that He did grant.
He fashioned mountains great and small
To be enjoyed by one and all.
Such joy as He reveals His plans
Fear not dear ones, you're in His hands.
__________________________________________
The Lord is a great God.
He holds the deepest part of
the earth in His hands and
the mountains are His.

Have You Seen A Forest Praying?

Have you seen a forest praying,
Heads bowed down in silent prayer,
Rows of pines so softly swaying,
Ice and snow upon their hair?
All the wood's a simple alter;
God is ever present there;
Refuge from the weak who falter
And the stronger deer and bear.
Have you gawked with awe and wonder
At a sight so truly rare?
If you have, you know the splendor
Of a forest deep in prayer.

Seasons of His Love!

In the blooming of the springtime,
In the season of rebirth,
Plants and flowers reawaken
Bringing new life to the earth.
In the bounty of the summer,
In God's Providence arrayed,
Fruits and vegetables full-ripened
For my pleasure are displayed.
In the foliage of autumn
God descends from heav'n above,
To give brightness to the landscape
With the colors of His love.
In the stillness of the winter,
In the silence of my soul
Enter softly, my Redeemer,
You alone can make me whole,
In the beauty of the seasons,
I can see the Master's touch;
And my heart cries out with gladness
That my God loves me so much.

The Gift of Love!

We mortals tend to take in stride
Each gift our Lord bestows.
Our health and wealth we wear wirh pride
...Make certain that it shows.

We live each day without a thought
Of giving thanks to God -
We walk amid the beauty wrought
Along each path we trod.

We listen to a tiny bird
Who has a song to sing
And never give a sign we heard
The sound of anything.

I sometimes feel that God on high
Must give up in despair
But all He seems to do is sigh
And give more loving care.
______________________________________________
Give thanks to the Lord,
sing His praises, proclaim
all His wonderous works.
1 Cor. 16:8-9

Contrasts

For every sunset there's a sunrise,
For every winter comes a spring,
For every word in anger spoken
There's joy and gladness kind words bring.

For every raindrop there's a sunbeam,
For every tear a lovely smile,
For every storm a promise given -
This too shall pass in just a while.

Life's made of contrasts, sweet and bitter,
And into each life both must fall;
But, be it trial or be it blessing
We know God's hand is in it all.

If life were always bright and happy
Would we then seek help from above,
Or know the joy when breaks the morning
With rainbowed skies of hope and love?

the Lord shall be a light to me.

This Is All I Ask!

Lord, show me the way
I can somehow repay
The blessings You've given to me...
Lord, teach me to do
What You most want me to
And I will be what You want me to be...
I'm unworthy I know
But I do love You so -
I beg You to answer my plea...
I've not much to give
But as long as I live
May I give it completely to Thee!

There Always Is Someone!

There always is someone who cares
And bears a love for you,
Someone unseen but near your side
In all you ever do...
Someone to comfort and console
Your sorrow and despair,
Someone to give you strength and hope
And help your burdens share...
Someone to turn to in distress
When all seems lost and vain,
Someone to bring you confidence
Your long sought goal to gain...
"Who is this someone," you may ask
Who shows such care and love,
Beyond the shadow of a doubt
It's God, the Lord above.
________________________________________
Praised be God, the Father of
our Lord, Jesus Christ, the Father of

Just a Tiny Mustard Seed!

Just a tiny mustard seed -
So insignificant and small,
Is the size of faith you'll need
When to God you humbly call.

Yes, all things are possible
If only you believe,
And God will not refuse you
According to His will you can receive.

Faith can lift and shift a mountain,
Only trust God's love and care -
Hold onto hope and patience,
View an eagle soaring in the air.

For miracles surround us -
Why should we fret and stew
When God created the universe,
And those skies of azure blue?

Just a tiny mustard seed -
Much smaller than a pea,
Will cause our doubts to dwindle
When we use our eyes of faith to see.
___________________________________________________

More and More!

More and more - as we grow older
And the end of life is near -
Jesus is our choice companion
And a haven for our fears.
He becomes more dear and closer,
As a friend of trust and love -
And a hopeful guide and Saviour
To His Heavens, up above.

More and pore our faith is strengthened
In His promises and care
And our prayers become more honest
Of the sins we never shared;
It's a time of true confessions -
When we reach with crying hearts
For the love and care of Jesus
And the Grace that faith imparts.
__________________________________________
Cast me not off in my old age;

There's no Rainbow!

There's no rainbow without the rain,
No baby born without some pain,
No summertime without the spring,
No song at all unless we sing.

No twinkling stars without the night,
No morning dew without the light,
No sheltered nooks without the bowers,
No fragrance sweet without the flowers.

No honeycombs without the bees,
No shady lawns without the trees,
No love at all unless we give,
Pour out our love each day we live.
__________________________________________
Tell a friend today that you love them,
In doing so you will make their day.
