Walk With God

100_2057,jpg.walkwithme

Lay to rest ghosts’ lying shadows,
Put them away where they belong.
Embrace Truth of timeless ages,
God is Love and on His Throne.

 Lay to rest life’s dis-appointments,
Put them away where they belong.
Embrace Love’s Divine appointments,
When you walk with God. you’re never alone.

Songs in the Night

Where is God my maker who gives songs in the night?
Job 35:10

He gives a song—
even when I can’t sing.
He’s there,
watchingcaring
singing over me—
And I’m held by strong chords
of God’s love.

Then when my spirit and soul
are renewed,
I pick up His song—
And sing it back to Him.

The Dust Of His Feet

Clouds are the dust of His feet.
No whirlwind or storm
can ever separate us from God’s Love.
For it’s at the feet of Jesus,
we receive mercy, grace and love.

The Lord has His way in the whirlwind and the storm, and clouds
are the dust of His feet. Nahum 1:3

When Flowers Fade

100_4371
Seems like the older I get the
faster the seasons come and go…
and the challenges that accompany
them. This has been especially true
this year. Two sudden deaths in
our family left us heart broken.
A special niece the day after Christmas, followed by the death of a brother-in law just six months later.

We traveled to South Alabama both times, wanting to give support and comfort as
our family grieved the loss of loved ones together.

Now months later, we are about to witness another changing season. Soon flowers
of summer will fade and fall as the heat of summer gives way to shorter days and
cooler temperatures. Winter is soon to follow.

I don’t feel ready for another winter. Seems like we just got through the last one.
Yet I love this time of the year when Autumn’s vibrant colors cause me to pause
and reflect on the faithfulness of God during the changing seasons of our lives.

Even the season of death and sorrow cannot take away the hope of seeing our
loved ones again. We believe they are just beyond the thin veil that separates
heaven and earth. What a great reunion in heaven awaits those who place their
trust in the Lord Jesus Christ.

Our lives may seem like fading flowers on this earth, but we believe we will bloom
again in heaven for eternity.

For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten son, so that whoever
believes in Him will not perish, but have everlasting life. (John 3:16)
