Hope That Doesn't Disappoint

When Tears Must Fall

Who is this coming up from the wilderness, leaning on her beloved? Song of Songs 8:5

MoCKQFZxubLzY9LP03QVQeHj7Q6XrNQQTGXi1zwPnmE
My peace I give
 in the winding wilderness,
where heart and
mind are overwhelmed.
Worry not nor fret,
my daughter.
Lean hard on Me and
trust and rest.

My love I give
 in the valley of trials,
where tears
must fall along the way.
Offer me your tears,
My daughter.
Lean hard on Me and
trust and rest.

Feeling Incomplete?

IMG_0057

 

I wonder what happened?

A missing petal caused the lily to appear incomplete.

There are times I feel that way.

I’m caught off guard at times, responding in ways that are unloving or unkind to those around me.

Perfection raises its ugly head. “You’re still flawed, inadequate, imperfect!”

Disappointment grips my heart and I cry out…

“How long O Lord, how long?”

Then I hear the still small voice within; “As long as it takes.”

And I am encouraged.

How about you?  Ever get discouraged or impatient when your reactions

aren’t what you want them to be?

If so, isn’t it good to remember the promises from God’s Word!

The truth is, every follower of Jesus is a work in progress, and we need to trust Him to do the changing while we do the trusting.

The Bible encourages us to let our roots grow down deep in the soil of God’s love and embrace this promise.

Faithful to complete it.


I am certain that God, who began the good work 
within you, will continue His work until it is finally finished on the day when Christ Jesus returns.
Philippians 1:6 NLT

#God Proved His Love For You


100_4521.jpgcross2

Made right with God by faith in Jesus—

Peace with God through the blood of His son,

A place to stand in undeserved privilege,

Waiting for the glory of His second return.

This is from Me

IMG_1142

This is from me.
This time planned long ago;
purposed, for good
not for harm.
Eyes opening,
second causes fading…
When you see me in everything.

 This is from me.
This place fixed long ago;
waiting hearts full
surrender.
Ears opening,
and my will embracing…
When you see me in everything. 

“And we know that God causes all things to work together for good,
To those who love God and are called according to His purpose.” (Romans 8:28).

A Grateful Holy Moment

“Enter into his gates with Thanksgiving, and into his courts with praise: be thankful unto him, and bless his name” (Psalm 100:4).

Whitest snow dusting trees like powdered sugar
Frosting darkest earth
My gift to you this day
This moment

These are the bonus years
Embrace them
Extra years many never gain
Extra grace to know
to live
to touch
to love

This is still my purpose in Life
To Know Him and make Him known

He reaches out His hands
Come to me
Live in me
Love in me
Walk with me
Listen to my voice
I am here

You need not fear new seasons of life
I’m already there
Waiting for you

Are you coming?

There are many things I’ve yet to show you
Many miles you’ve yet to travel
Many roads to walk with me
Many joys yet to know

These are the bonus years
Trust me
Let go of your grip
of lesser things
Take my hand
walk with me
one step at a time

These are the bonus years
Rejoice
Let Go
Let God

The best lies just beyond
the open door
when hearts respond
to Spirit’s call
Let not your heart be troubled
I am here
I heard you call

The best lies just beyond the open door
Where Jesus bids us follow
Fret not, nor worry
I go before you
Take my hand
I’ll lead you home

These are the bonus years
but the best is surely
yet to come
Lay your head on my shoulder
Lean on me
I’ll bring you home
