Bringing Inspirations Your Way - to brighten your day....

I thought God lived high above
Only someone for me to love
But He’s in my heart and not the sky
Not only to love but to be loved by
His tenderness cannot be measured
He has let me know that I am treasured
A precious child He loves most dear
In His embrace I have nothing to fear
On this Earthly world I’ll roam
Until the day God calls me home
But not without hope or reason
For He has a plan for this brief season
And if in Him I place my trust
I’ll live a life upright and just

Words of Wisdom 
One cannot live another’s life 
Choose their interests or make their decisions Carry their problems or determine their outcome.
Each person has the power of choice 
Interests of theirs are different to ours. Decisions? They know what’s right for them 
We can pick them up and sometimes not 
in this rest that God knows our future. 
Remember these things sometimes with
your children 
They’re on loan to us and make their way
Provide for them a nice environment 
And be the best friend you can.

I never knew you Lord,
Or your love in such great measure.
I'd heard about you as a child
But you were someone else's treasure.
I'd always hoped for more,
I hoped you would be true,
When growing up, I'm sure you knew
I was always seeking you.

Teenage cries, confusion reigned,
the order of the day.
And all the while, your awesome presence,
with me all the way.
Not knowing you're my Savior;
I'd never heard of grace,
I couldn't hear your voice of love,
so closely at my face.
I'd always hoped for more,
still hoping you'd be true,
Still growing up, I'm sure you knew,
I was always seeking you.

Unsuccessful plans, mistakes
were running high,
An adult crying to the Lord;
He'll know the reasons why.
I heard about you in that book,
when I was but a child,
I wanted to know this Jesus,
so kind and meek and mild.
I'm so grateful for your word,
in You I've come alive,
My heart you've filled with gladness,
and joy has filled my eyes.
I'm glad I hoped for more,
and now I know You're true,
When growing up, I never knew
That You would seek me too.

Cheerful Empathy
He was my song through the night
When I found myself in a plight
My strength is renewed
I can sing a new tune
He was my song in the night.
He was always there for me
Gave me times of tranquility
The waters were calm
I was in His Palm
Engraved in the Hand of God.
Now there is laughter and peace
There were then when my soul was at ease
New life springs forth
And what is more
There will be a time for you too.

 It’s true, so true what His Word says that
“Joy comes in the Morning”

Truly Satisfies
Romance is not everything
people often think it is
But one can still feel empty
for something more of bliss.
This is because we were made for Him
who reserves a place in our hearts__
It's Him who fills us to the brim
and Truly Satisfies.

Your Eyes Are Ever Fixed
Wherever You are Lord,
You are fully there.
Every part of You is listening
When I offer up a prayer.

Your omnipresence shines
And thrills my very heart,
For Lord I have You fully
Not just a random part.

When I turn my eyes to You,
I find with utter glee,
That Your eyes are ever fixed
And fastened upon me.

No need have I to turn
Your thoughts unto my way.
Your thoughts ever dwell there
As I go about the day.

So when I turn my eyes
In search of Your dear face,
I find You ever loyal
Within Your faithful place.

To all You call Your own,
Such love You do bestow.
I may not understand it,
But I believe it and I know:

You will never be too busy
That Your eye will turn and stray.
You will never be too busy
That You neglect to watch my way.

Praise You precious Jesus!
Your love I ever feel.
Praise You precious Jesus!
Your care is very real.

And when I turn my eyes to You,
I find with utter glee,
That Your eyes are ever fixed
And fastened upon me.

The beauty of a Sunset,
The sweet fragrance of a flower,
To me is a reminder of God’s wonderful Power.
When you are feeling low and all alone,
Just remember God loves you and cares for His own.
If your life seems dark and you are on a rough road,
Just remember to pray, He will lighten your load.
Your burdens He will lift if to Him you do go,
Your prayers He will answer if Faith you do show.
The beauty God has provided for you and for me,
Is all around us if we just take the time to see.
We only need to have faith and to pray,
For God to be with us and guide us each day.

The Ideal Home 
On laughter and happiness you can
build a home
With peace, sweet peace you can
call your own And love, such love can
always be found 
Material things come 2nd__ 
they don’t have to be the best in town 
Yes, these are the values that make
for a home One I will gladly call my own

As I walk through the garden of hope
I wonder why as we get older
Winter’s longer then still colder
Than all the winters past before
Then flowers bloom in spring once more

I wonder why our memories fade
From precious times and friendships made
From loves and pleasures known before
Then flowers bloom in spring once more

I wonder why as lifeline’s pale
Age often brings us pain to veil
The sunlight from our days before
Then flowers bloom in spring once more

I wonder why our autumn years
Cloud our thoughts with end life fears
With shadows seldom seen before
Then flowers bloom in spring once more

I wonder why in our old age
We look for God upon life’s stage
When we’ve failed to look in years before
Then flowers bloom in spring once more

I wonder why near death and dying
We fail to see beyond the crying
Hopes and dreams from years before
Then flowers bloom in spring once more

A Splendid Poem on Hope
by Richard Diem

Living Today
Care not for the failures of yesterday
you belong to Jesus, now and always
He will put a new spring in your step
if you trust, in simple faith
Live for today, that's what you must.

The Savior is waiting to enter your heart
Once he comes in he will never depart
He has life giving water to quench your thirst
And with his love you'll be immersed
He came to give you life
more abundant and free
And that is why he went to the cross of Calvary
His shed blood was the perfect sacrifice
He has power to forgive sins because
he paid the price
If you are thirsty then come to him now
And at the mercy seat humbly bow
He loves you so much and is the only way
Jesus is only a prayer away
Jesus is waiting with his arms open wide
He says "Come unto me and with me abide"
He'll forgive any sin you've ever done
And wipe the slate clean
as though there were none
He promises you a home in heaven
where you'll never grow old
Where some day you'll be walking
on streets of gold
His great salvation you can never lose
Whoever comes to him he will never refuse

He Hides my soul in the Depths of His Love that Covers a Dry Thirsty Land  ~  Yes Indeed !!!

In a Land
There is a star that shines
so bright
In a land where there is
no night
On every face there is
a smile
For we will never suffer
another trial
There are no tears
no fears, no pain
but everything to gain
We will walk and talk
with our Lord Jesus Christ
For He paid the price
On that lonely hill
yet, He loves us still!
Mary Frances Wright

God is Able
It is only a tiny rosebud.
A flower of God's design.
But I cannot unfold the petals
With this clumsy hand of mine.

The secret of unfolding flowers
Is not known to such as I
God opens flowers so sweetly
When in my hand they fade and die

If I cannot unfold the rosebud
This flower of God's design
Then how do I think I have the wisdom
To unfold this life of mine.

So I'll trust in Him for His leading
Each moment of the day
I will look to Him for guidance
Each pilgrim step of the way

The pathway, which lies before me
Only the Heavenly Father knows
I'll trust in Him to unfold the moments
Just as He unfolds the rose

I wish you Well
Very soon the sun will set
Just before the night-fall
At times today my soul was blessed
I meditate as I have my rest.
There have been times that challenged me
But the day has dawned and I feel free.
I wish you all well ~ May Jesus be with you
at the break of dawn
