The One Constant

IMG_1148 edit109 Those kiddos! I love them dearly. God has reminded me from time to time that they really are not mine. They are His! I’m thankful He has given my husband and I the privilege to raise them. I know one day, if the Lord tarries that they will leave “the nest”. One day I was thinking about this and wrote the following poem.

There’s a truth at times brought back to me of which I have long known,

my children, though so dear to me are really not my own.

They have been such a part of me. I hold them close in heart,

but they’ve belonged to God above right from their very start

. We’ve many happy memories. We’re bound by love’s strong cords.

Yet there’s no escaping the fact that they really are the Lord’s.

The little girl is replaced by a woman. That young boy has become a man.

My prayer and desire for them is that they live to fulfill God’s plan.

And though the time will come when they leave the proverbial “nest”,

I trust in their Creator to lead them in the way that is best.

Things will change as the kids grow up. They may become husbands or wives.

I pray there will be one constant thing,

Jesus, the center of their lives.

your strength will be renewed,

Fear Knots or “Fear Nots” ?

Originally posted on Write At Home:

Are fear knots or “fear nots” guiding your way

when it seems your path is filled with dismay?

At trying times you must make a choice

to whom you will listen, which voice.

As life’s circumstances you closely survey,

Are fear knots or “fear nots” guiding your way?

Is anxiousness the only sound heard,

or are you tuning in to God’s Holy Word?

Down the human path you are called to trod.

When the testing comes, does it seem rather odd?

Are fear knots or “fear nots” guiding your way?

Will adversity cause you to earnestly pray?

Trials will come, a fact that is sure.

Abiding in God is the only true cure.

When perplexity knocks will your soul find a stay?

Are fear knots or “fear nots” guiding your way?

Restoration

Sin it crouches

Sin it pounces

Pounces on me

Pounces on you

You try to run

You try to hide

Hide the shame

Hide the truth

Truth that hurts

Truth that wounds

Wounds that fester in the heart

Wounds that tear a life apart

Apart from God

Apart from mercy

Mercy can refuse

Mercy also beckons

Beckons softly

Beckons tenderly

Tenderly His voice

Tenderly it calls

Calls for repentance

Calls me to an altar

Altar of humility

Altar of confession

Confession brings release

Confession brings peace

Peace floods my soul

Peace like a river

River that flows

River of life

Life that’s worth living

Life meant for giving

Giving of self

Giving in service

Service to others

Service to God

God of love

God of hope

Hope for tomorrow

Hope in my sorrow

Sorrow that comes

Sorrow that goes

Goes in God’s time

Goes in God’s season

Season of revival

Foolishness or The Power of God?

Originally posted on Write At Home:

Foolishness or the power of God, which shall it be?

What is your response to the cross of Calvary?

For every man down deep in his heart must decide,

Will the gospel be believed or denied?

Perhaps life’s greatest question, aimed at you and me;

Foolishness or the power of God, which shall it be?

What will we do with the Savior crucified?

Will His blood to our lives be applied?

Down through the ages God is longing and reaching

Every time the cross is at the center of our preaching.

Foolishness or the power of God, which shall it be?

A choice that will affect eternity.

A wondrous opportunity, the greatest of good news

Some will run to the altar, while others cling to the pews.

One day we’ll hang our heads in shame or rejoice eternally.

Foolishness or the power of God, which shall it be?

He Won The War!

Originally posted on Write At Home:

Hung on the cross, thief on each side

My Jesus suffered, bled and died

New life attained through His great loss

Thief on each side, hung on the cross.

Himself He gave, our sacrifice

For our redemption paid the price

Shed His life’s blood, our souls to save

Our sacrifice, Himself He gave.

He won the war against all sin

That reigned in Adam and his kin

There’s victory forevermore

Against all sin, He won the war!

Tell Me……………..

What is one thing you appreciate about your mother?

Here is mine.

I am grateful that I have a mother who prays for me daily. Her prayers have had a huge impact on my life.

Your turn!
