Hope That Doesn't Disappoint

A Song in the Night

I’d rather walk

in the valley with Jesus

than on a mountain-top

without Him.

He gives a song

in the night. 

He sings loudly,

knitting our hearts together

with sweet chords of love.

I’d rather walk

through valley’s long trial

with the Shepherd—

than high on a mountain

without His sweet song.

Sing over me, Shepherd of my soul. Help me go forth with heart
and hands lifted up, s
inging Love’s sweet song.

 

I call to remembrance my song in the night. Psalm 77:6
He will rejoice over you with singing. Zephaniah 3:17

Dove of His Presence

6 Comments

Attachment-1

Dove of His presence,
You have graced and embraced me…
Poured the balm of Gilead
on open wounds…
Taken the sweetness
of the 
cross of Jesus…
and dipped me 
in living waters
of sweet contentment and joy. 

No circumstance…
no matter how hard
or bitter…
need stop the 
sweetness of God’s presence
in our lives. 
We only need to bow
and release
the tangled strings
of our heart to Jesus. 

Then we listen for the song He puts right there…
Right there in the center of our being. 

Meditations from Exodus 15:24-26; Jeremiah 8:22; John 7:38; Revelation 7:17

Just A Little Rose

 Just a little rose, wilted at times…yet not for long.

Like the rose, we come to Jesus…
trusting He understands like no other,
resting between His shoulders,
knowing we are held with strong arms of love.

Like a child, we come to Jesus…
believing He cares like no other,
pouring out our hearts,
receiving His comforting presence.

Like a little rose wilted at times…
Coming to Jesus we find
living water refreshing our souls…
And once again the sweet fragrance of the Rose fills the air.

On the great day of the feast, Jesus stood and cried out saying, “If anyone is thirsty, let him come to me and drink. He who believes in me, as the scriptures said, ‘From his innermost being will flow rivers of living water.'” John 7: 37-38

Love Saw Our Greater Need

Calvary-Cross-Pics-0508

Love saw our greater need…

Behind the questions of Nicodemus the teacher.

The woman caught in adultery and condemned by others.

The thief on the cross.

Saul the Pharisee and murderer.

The lost one in church… religious… but no relationship.

The Cross of Calvary is an invitation to all.
It doesn’t matter who we are
or what we have done.

The religious teacher who seeks Jesus is born again,
and receives new life of God’s Spirit.

The immoral released from guilt and shame
now walks with a pure heart.

The thief enters paradise
and lives with Jesus forever.

The Pharisee paroled from hell,
receives new life and vision.

The religious rebel redeemed from self-works
now walks with the Living God.

If we want to know God and live with Him eternally,
we need only
look to the Cross and believe.

For this is the will of My Father, that everyone who beholds the Son and believes in Him, will have eternal life, and I Myself will raise him (her) up on the last day. (John 6:40 NASB).

When we see Jesus, the foot of the cross becomes the Amazing Throne of Grace.

Will you meet me there?

 Our Father in Heaven, we bow our hearts and lives before you, thanking you for eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord. May Your Kingdom come, Your will be done.  Forgive our sins. Renew our faith. Give us new songs of praise.

In the name of Jesus our Lord, amen.
