Just To Let Thy Father…..

imagesFZXKTSIX

JUST to let Thy Father do what He will;
Just to know that He is true, and be still.
Just to follow, hour by hour, as He leadeth;
Just to draw the moment’s power, as it needeth.
Just to trust Him, this is all. Then the day will
surely be
Peaceful, whatso’er befall, bright and blessed, calm
and free.

Just to let Him speak to thee, through His Word,
Watching, that His voice may be clearly heard.
Just to tell Him everything, as it rises,
And at once to bring to Him all surprises.
Just to listen, and to stay where you cannot miss His
voice,
This is all! and thus today, you, communing, shall
rejoice.

Just to trust, and yet to ask guidance still;
Take the training or the task, as He will.
Just to take the loss or gain, as He sends it;
Just to take the joy or pain as He lends it.
He who formed thee for His praise will not miss the
gracious aim;
So today, and all thy days, shall be moulded for
the same.

Just to leave in His dear hand little things;
All we cannot understand, all the stings.
Just to let Him take the care sorely pressing;
Finding all we let Him bear changed to blessing.
This is all! and yet the way marked by Him who
loves thee best:
Secret of a happy day, secret of His promised rest.

The Spiritual Journey

LOVE is what we are born with.
Fear is what we learn.
The spiritual journey is the unlearning of fear
and prejudices and Image result for spiritual journey
the acceptance of love back in our hearts.
Love is the essential reality
and our purpose on earth.
To be consciously aware of it,
to experience love in ourselves and others,
is the meaning of life.
Meaning does not lie in things.
Meaning lies in us.

God Has Great Things For You

God has plans for you,images9zhoyofy

before you to lay.

a joy ~ a peace
He has great treasures
that’ll never cease.

But, you must seek God,
with your whole heart
before His plans for you
He can impart . . .

your heart.”

Yesterday’s Door

Image result for green door

I’ve shut the door on Yesterday,
It’s sorrows and mistakes.
I’ve locked within its gloomy walls
Past failures and heartaches.

And now I throw the key away,
To seek another room,
And furnish it with hope and smiles
And every springtime bloom.

No thought shall enter this Abode
That has a hint of pain;
And envy, malice and distrust
Shall never entrance gain.

I’ve shut the door on Yesterday
And thrown the key away –
Tomorrow holds no fear for me
Since I have found Today.

Sometimes Love…

Sometimes love can be quiet
And sometimes love can be still,
But always love is patientyt
And is a choice of our will

 

Sometimes love can be vibrant —
Sometimes it’s not easily felt,
But always love is eternal
And is never boastful or proud

 

Sometimes love can be tender
Then sometimes hard to express,
But always love is truthful
And believes in the very best

 

Sometimes love can be exciting
And love can sometimes be sweet
For love is always trusting
And chooses never to envy

 

Sometimes love can be painful
Then sometimes love’s like a song,
But always love is forgiving
And keeps no record of wrongs

 

Sometimes love can be gentle
Then sometimes it’s just a word,
But always love protects and hopes
And love is always preserved

 

Love is never self-seeking
And is never angered or rude
Love can never fail us,
For God’s love is faithful and true.

M.S. Lowndes

Friendship

We grow closer to each other
When we’re closer to the Lord,
The common faith that we share
Binds our hearts in one accordImage result for friendship

 

For friendships last a life time
When built on Jesus Christ,
Throughout each different season,
We find we are in life

 

Friends are there through times of grief
And times when hope is gone,
Always there with encouragement
So we can carry on

 

So thank the Lord for giving you
A true and faithful friend,
To laugh with you, and cry with you,
On whom you can depend

 

For friends will stay no matter what,
Giving you support
And together your hearts truly unite
With the love of the Lord.

House Of Love

A home made from loveimagesAHWVD0QB

Is what God intends

Filled with all of our family

Love is not blind nor pretends.

The recipe is simple

The ingredients are clear

Keeping God close is essential

For love to be near.

Start with some laughter,

Don’t forget to pray,

Mix in a few smiles

And God will make clear the way.

Good Friday

God’s Son came to earth’s abode

On Calvary He shed His blood.

Once the Sacrifice was complete

Death He’d have to defeat.
For man His life He gave.


Resolved that sinners He’d save.

Ideally was God’s plan displayed,

Dutifully the Son obeyed.

Anguish and pain He would endure

Yet victory He’d lovingly procure.

James Martin

Enjoy Life

Life’s too short to be wasted.
It passes just once, so make the most out of it.
Live life the way you want it to be.
Live it to the fullest, feel free!

Live as the sun shines in the sky.
Live as high as the birds can fly.
Live as the colors of a rainbow.imagesZHGH5XS4Live as far as the clouds can go.

Never waste it with worthless doubts and fears,
With insecurities and useless tears.
Remember that what couldn’t tear you makes you strong.
Put away frustrations, sing your own song!

Believe in what you can do.
The world is round; it’s all up to you.
Think fast, act now!
Time is gold; it couldn’t be renewed.

Value experiences, learn from mistakes.
Improve for the better, live for others.
Do what is right and what is best.
Always be yourself, unique from the rest.

Laugh as if there’s no tomorrow.
Dance as though you’ll never get through.
Love with all your heart and soul.
Sing like you’re on the top of the world.

Forget the money, the root of all evil.
Treasure your loved ones; you’re blessed they’re still here.
Strengthen your faith, live with God.
The best things in life are for free, so why not?!

The ONE Loaf


1 COR. 10:17.

THE twilight hour, when all the world doth dream,
I stand amid
The ripening grain, the ripples, like the bosom of
a lakeimages
Beneath the evening breeze. I pluck, and idly hold
within
My hand, one golden ear, the while in swift succession
pass
Strange visions of the olden time: I see a threshing-
floor,—
The wheat by wooden flail bereft of chaff and shining
husk.
The scene is changed: I see a woman grinding at
a mill,—
Between the upper and the nether stones the grain is
crushed
Until no semblance of its former state remains, but
each
Is merged into one common whole,—a coarse and
homely meal.
Another picture,—mixed with water and with salt
a loaf,
Or flattened cake, is formed and laid upon the glow-
ing coals.

And as I gaze my thoughts are lifted to a higher
plane;
I see “the members of His body,” like the golden
grain,
Denuded of their glittering robes of earthly pride and
fame;
The upper and the nether stones of life’s vicissitudes
Are slowly, surely, grinding rich and poor, the high,
the low,
Into one common-union,—heart and mind, and zeal
and love;jk
With purifying salt, life-giving water of the Word,
The mass is being drawn and held and moulded in
“one loaf.”

Ah, then, beloved, when we drink of that memorial
cup,
And eat the symbol of His flesh, let us partake with
joy,
Nor marvel if we need that strange, transforming
power of fire,
Ere we are counted worthy to be like our Lord and
Head,
And “broken” that a hungry, fainting, dying world
be fed!
