What does it mean to be still with you? Surrounded by creation, peaceful renewed. The stress of the world no longer carried. No need to worry, no need to tarry. The wind is calm, a gentle breeze. You sit with the Lord under his tree. He speaks to you and gently reminds, You are special to him, one of a kind. You’re loved for who you are, not what you do. The Lord loves sitting there, he and you. He loves to speak promises and tell you what’s true. He loves relationship and be
The loss of a child, the loss of a friend, the loss of a job will tragedy end? I can’t say I understand all the trials and pain, but my heart breaks for those treading through rocky terrain. It’s hard and it’s tiring will the trek ever end? It is hard to take another step and even bend. I hear people say when can I rest? I’ve given life my all, my very best. I wish I could say tomorrow the tide will turn and you will look back and see all you’ve learned. I don’t know when tha
Voices are used to sing and shout. Voices are used to create and cast out doubt. Voices are instruments of praise and adoration. Voices are used to make declarations. How you use your voice is up to you. I want to change the world and speak life, too! There’s so many hurting. I hate when people die because of cancer and suicide. God I want to glorify you not disease, speak through my mouth and heal disease. May the church arise and miracles happen where people around the worl
Grieving is painful and hard! As I was able to process a little tonight, I decided to share what the Lord gave me. He gave me a poem and he gave me assurance: “It’s going to be ok.” Grieving is hard and full of pain. Sometimes you can’t feel anything. Tears stream down your face and stain. Your heart is broken, the pain it stings. You can’t put your emotions into words. Your thoughts seem to be all over the place. You wonder what direction you’re moving towards. Then in the m
I see a bolt of lightning bursting forth I hear God speak to each of you worth Just as God knows every grain of sand He knows you when no one understands He’s the God of hope and salvation He’s the source of life for every nation He never authors condemnation He’s a loving God and very patient When you don’t know what to do, he’s always near. Give him all your worries and fears. Call to him he’ll always hear He always has a listening ear He may not respond the way you desire
It’s been really hard lately. I decided to write. I hope it helps someone else. My heart is heavy, I feel the weight
of all the years I’ve been in wait.
I thought I had patience but tested again.
I sit here wondering if and when.
I’m not trying to toil with questions unanswered
Many people are tormented with cancers
My burdens are heavy but light to the Lord
He never tires, he’s never bored
I come to him often with a heart that is torn
I ask him to mend it for I am w
Lord we come to you tonight united as one. We get to worship you and have fun. Brothers and sisters from different nations. United together because of salvation. Holy Spirit fall fresh on us. Show us what it means to really trust. We surrender our lives, we give you everything. It’s an honor to worship you, our Father, our King. Our voices we raise as we sing you praise. Lord we partner with you all of our days. Without your presence we will not go, for it’s you oh God we nee
What a journey life’s been so far. I’ve traveled by bus, train, plane and car. I’ve enjoyed oceans, mountains, deserts and tropics. I’ve had many conversations on different topics. I’ve been a student and a teacher. I’ve heard many messages from preachers. I survived death’s grip on different occasions. I’ve had a few family vacations. I’ve overcome hardship many a time. I know what’s it’s like to continue to grind. When will my breakthrough come? I’ve asked this question, I’
Beliefs and behaviors carve a place to see, Holy Spirit we yield to thee. Lord we welcome all that you want to do. We want to grow in intimacy, deeper with you! Take us to places and give us revelation, thank dear Jesus for salvation! We want to be witnesses and be your hands and feet, in houses, in public and on the streets. Tune our ears and open our eyes, remove any barriers and tear down lies. May our hearts and minds be united as one, let us see through the eyes of the S
We all are creative, we all have dreams. God is the River and off him come streams. Streams of business and streams of teachers, of mothers and fathers, prophets and preachers. God’s given us grace to run the race. God show us exactly how to pace. We live to lift the name of Jesus. God thank you for visions and how you see us. We don’t have to strive, we just have to rest. God asks us to just say yes. Don’t discard what God has breathed. Choose to agree and choose to believe,
We are called to create and called to carry. The love of the Father to a world that is weary. Hurt and heartache say it’s too tough. But in Christ there is always enough. Hold onto your revelation choose not to quit. The Lord has deposited and he has equipped. When circumstances come and try to define, you are a loser, you must draw a line. You are a winner victorious in Christ. He took all sin when he paid the price. When we experience the love of our dad, we feel like we be
I don’t know how to go through life on my own. I’m so thankful that no matter where I’m at, I’m not alone. Sometimes I feel like I can’t take another step. Then I’m reminded of Jesus and that he wept. He endured much pain leading up to the cross. He knows what it’s like to suffer and endure great loss. I’m thankful for his character and the life that he lead. I’m thankful for his sacrifice and the blood he shed. Though the enemy always tries to deceive, Jesus is greater and t
When love is experienced everything is ok. You wonder why you can’t feel this way every day. The truth is God loves you and you have a choice. You can live as a son or daughter or you can be distracted by the noise. The world will fill your mind and the enemy will feed you lies, but God will be your Father and never leave your side. There will be times you feel like he’s no where to be found, but take time to listen he’s speaking, hear his sound? He’s that gentle whisper that
Brokenness is hard but beautiful to me. When you’re struggling child bring me your needs. I’m your strength and comfort in the storm. I knew you child before you were born. Lean on me and the Body of Christ. On the cross Jesus suffered and paid the price. Before that he was tempted and he was tried. Yes Jesus wept, yes he cried. He was insulted and mocked, but death set us free. Children run, run to me. Don’t try to be strong for you are weak. Learn to humble, learn to be mee
This poem was written when God was speaking to me about being a child, a daughter. This painting was done by a friend during worship. As I looked at it, God downloaded the poem that follows the picture. #Encouragement #Inspiration #Poetry
Although I grew up loving God, I always felt like I couldn’t do enough for him and that I didn’t deserve his love. I don’t know exactly why, but I struggled to receive God’s love for me. For many years, God has been teaching me how to be his daughter and that I don’t have to fear, live like a slave. What does it mean to be a child not a slave. I feel quit timid and not very brave. Can I enter the court of my glorious king? Do I have anything to offer, anything to bring? I’m t
There are some days that I find that I am scared. Sometimes I wonder if God really hears my prayers. I’m thankful that in my hurt and pain, that God calls me beloved, he calls me by my name. He tells me that I don’t have to live in shame. God I want to keep growing and becoming more like you. I don’t want to look at life as something I just have to get through. I want to love and show others what it means to be kind. No matter what happens, I want to be a light that shines.
Life is filled with ups and downs. Sometimes I feel I’m going to drown. Something inside of me says just keep going. Though it is hard, you are growing. I know what it’s like to be plagued by pain. I know what it’s like to hope for a sunny day. We all are faced with difficult news, how we react and deal with it, we choose. It’s ok that sometimes you are sad. I want to empower you and remind you, you can. You can get back up and face your fears. You can cry and let out tears.
In a time of transition so much is changing and there is a lot of logistics and emotions to process. As I work through my own transitional season, I found myself writing this poem. When I read it, it encourages me and gives me hope. I pray it does the same for you. Lord thank you for loving me where I am. Thank you for being both the lion and the lamb. God you chose to love me before the beginning of time. You speak to me daily and tell me, “You are mine.” Life has been hard
What do you do when you are in pain? Do you ever feel like your going insane? For so long I fought to try and hide the pain buried deep inside. I know what it feels like to be depressed, but I also know what it’s like to be blessed. I know what it’s like to be physically hurt, but I also know the pain from words that were curt. I’ve been dealing with pain for so long, that sometimes I wonder what I did wrong. I feel like people care but don’t really understand the pain that I
