You have stood beside me

We reached 41.0 degrees in my home state again today, I’ve sat searching today for thoughts, prayers and healing in my heart. I’ve been doing some Bible Journal lately and found one of my prayers I had written to help me get back on track.

 

Dear Lord, You have stood beside me,
I’ve called to You for help
Your ears have never been closed to my prayers
There is times when you have not answered me
I cry out and You, show me Your way

I lift my head towards to sky
Listening for Your Spirit
Praying You will show me mercy.

Dear Lord, I continue along my way
You have blessed me according to my deeds
As You do others, even those with evil
Teaching me to to forgive those
Who have hurt,
You’ve shown me how to discern,
Good from Bad, that, there is hope

I lift my head towards to sky
Listening for Your Spirit
Praying You will show me mercy.
Praise the Lord!
He has heard my prayer for mercy.

You have given me strength, a full armour
I trust the Lord with my heart and soul
I found Joy in the Lord
Praise God

In Jesus name hear my prayer today Amen

Finding the light

Times of our lives
Take us on a journey
We let the flowers make a journey
We feel like, struggling flowers
Struggling to bloom, we are in a dark place
Those times, where growth
Is like an intricate web of change
Could we ever define the change?

I live in wonder
I feel the change
Yet nobody can see the change
God’s work in your life
I broke through the barrier
The day when I could see
That intricate web of change
When you start to spread your arms

Finding the light

With God in our life
There is a much higher
Feeling in life for us
I know I can make a difference
We all can make a difference
There is a life within God’s world

The day we allow God in our life
Life can change
To know what it means
To be free of worry
To be free of sadness
God can help You live again
Help You feel again
Freedom in God’s world is real

In Jesus name Amen

40MATTHEW

40-4:16     The people which sat in darkness saw great light; and to them which sat in the region and shadow of death light is sprung up.

612 PETER

61-1:19     We have also a more sure word of prophecy; whereunto ye do well that ye take heed, as unto a light that shineth in a dark place, until the day dawn, and the day star arise in your hearts:

But I am the breeze that flows

God carries our thoughts sometimes when I am walking I talk with God. There is a slight breeze in the air when I am talking with God. I capture the breeze and feel God there walking beside me.

———————–

 

I am the breeze that flows
I journey down the road
The morning’s amber glows
Along the road

I carry the load of your thoughts
Life never changes for me
I am the breeze, I never change
With no change in the weather
You cannot hide from me
I am the breeze
That is my way
Along the road

The morning amber glow
The wind will cease to blow

I keep moving on
I don’t know where
Inhale the breeze, but don’t despair

Life never changes for me
I am the breeze, I never change
I may follow you, wherever you go
I am right at home, with you
As you sit beside the road,
Watching the morning amber glow,
Exhilaration is the breeze

Spirit of Life

Quietly the mighty river runs while my baby sleeps, beside the cool running water
Cool running water, crystal clear, music to my baby’s ears, sunshine and water
Oh! a day beside the running water, watching my baby sleep
While waiting on my love, through kisses and dreams of life
Cool running water running softly while my baby sleeps
I imagine the dreams of a child, my child
I pray for your life to be that of peace
I hear your murmur as you sleep
It soothes as I day dream beside you
Quietly the mighty river runs while my baby sleeps, beside the cool running water
Cool running water, crystal clear, music to my baby’s ears, sunshine and water

Knowing You will take care of me

 

My mind races each morning
Slow down, I tell myself
I’ve been known to use my energy
Troubleshooting my day
Today I remind myself, there is a gift,
A gift of now

Calm my Spirit, Lord
Anxiety, reminds me, breathe
Fill me Lord, with Your Peace,
So my spinning mind settles

It serves no-one by thinking ahead
By wondering what might happen

Do Not Worry
33But seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things will be added unto you. 34Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Today has enough trouble of its own.

 

Matthew 6:25
Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or drink; or about your body, what you will wear. Is not life more than food, and the body more than clothes?

Matthew 6:27
Who of you by worrying can add a single hour to his lifespan?

I know You, can give me the words, I need
They will fill the need, I’ve fretted over today’s
Situation for sometime now,
I realise, now how useless the worrying is
You, Lord, provide me with the words
The thoughts I need
When pressure exists

index1

You, Lord can reduce the Spirit of fear
When is sweeps over me
Allow me to listen for the Holy Spirit
I know the Spirit of You Leads me

It serves no-one by thinking ahead
By wondering what might happen

I know You, Lord don’t ask me to handle
Everything on my own
You are there with me, for me
Each day of my life now is there
Moment by moment
You have taught me how to rest
Rest in Your word

It serves no-one by thinking ahead
By wondering what might happen

I rework phrases in my head now
Before I speak, I keep my thoughts on You
Knowing You will take care of me

My river was mapped for me

 

 

Though misleading at times

By the river and the sea
I feel the river flowing through
My body, my heart, my soul, to God’s sea
My river was mapped for me
Though misleading at times
I cannot change what happened along the way
It is mine and mine alone, mine to ponder
Crystal waters to keep free from mirages, toil
Covered in grime and soil, the winding river of life
Ends where it began and when life has surpassed,
It’s life span, I return to the river that was mapped for me
Mysteriously it lets me gather my daily course
Along my way to God’s sea, feel the perfume,
Of life as you pass the forests, through the crystal waters
Blossoms, linger in the air, stop a while
Be still, lay under the pines, feel the grass between your toes,
Healing Spirit from God as you lay still and feel the warmth
Images carry along my flowing river, glisten shadows,
Meld together as I journey to God’s sea
I feel the river flowing through, my story
Many stories of life flow, along the river to God’s sea
Many tears, eyes now that sparkle from the crystal waters
Yet there are many sad eyes, that flow past to God’s sea
From the rivers that are mapped for you
Stories from wounded hearts, nor tree that I pass
Along the way, pass flowery valleys, I gather momentum
Towards God’s sea, not to devastate, or destroy
My river is a comfort, a delight, Yet let me not devastate,
Those I pass along the way, my river mapped my course
But rather, leave the be to flow, their course
My river is my comfort, as I leaps over valleys and deep openings,
On the earths valleys, quietly I flow, and sweep my path
As I move without fear and bravely on, not knowing
What crosses my path or who stands near on my path
God showed me the path to love and to love
I keep following to the river

To God’s sea
Amen

Today I remind myself, God You have given me life.

I have to at times keep reminding myself how far I have traveled in a few short years. Especially sorting out my life after last year, a few things have gone wrong since I finished with long term pain meds. I have been able to handle the fallout to a degree. The most I have been praying about is my lungs have deteriorated further since I was first diagnosed with COPD in 2013. The results of second hand smoke, most of us that grew up in the 50,60,and 70’s were around smoke for a good many years. I never smoked, I would’ve been in deep trouble if I did, especially from my parents. When you live with someone who did this is the outcome. I am not angry about it, I have to keep moving and praying about it and staying in God’s word or Satan gets a foot hold. Being a new Christian you have to be careful. Depression and Anxiety is not in my vocabulary anymore.

————————————————-

Sometimes I have trouble believing
Believing I am sitting here in peace
I smile, look out the window
Thinking of words to write
As the sun beams through my window
God you have given me, life

The sun shines in the hill’s of Adelaide
Dew sits on the grass, crackling under foot
But right now I am home, where I want to be
In the hills of Adelaide, loved and at peace
I have never felt so much peace in my life
Praise God, God you have been Good to me

God showed me, there is a place where you can grow
In the Hills of Adelaide, where life is alive
In the praise of God, I planted the seed of God
For everything I have, and I see is God’s creation
God you have given me, life

The road’s been long and winding, rocky to at times
I was lost when I first came here, I searched the darkness
Leaning on my Faith, searching for the light
Satan has tried to pull me away, my Faith in God has grown
Stronger each day, God, You gave me a reason to live

God placed me in this valley, a valley where paradise lives
Where my dreams and body and soul have come alive
In the praise of God, planted the seed of God
For everything I have, and I see is God’s creation
God you have given me, life now You are in my heart

Today I remind myself, God You have given me life.
In Jesus name Amen

John 14:26 But the Counselor, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in my name, he will teach you all things, and will remind you of all that I said to you.

Sometimes we are scared

 

 

A few short years ago
I was afraid
Embarrassed

A new adventure was before me
And little other care I held
I did not realise at the ending of time
A new adventure was before me

I was so scared to let go of a life
Do we ever question why we are scared to let go?
I never thought I would find a better life
I,afraid of the unknown did find a better life

Each year of my life
I thought this is it!
Where I will end up
I never thought I would be able
To find something to replace what was once was
What comfort I now have in the wisdom of God
For now I have grasped God

The ending of a life once journeyed
Was chaotic, very chaotic
To take time and face the truth of chaos
I have found the birth of a new life
With the wisdom of God

I had to walk away from a life
Believe me it was hard
Healing the wounds of a hundred years ago
With the Commandments of God
Now in my life

I found life happening again
There are people now in my life
Who refused to walk away from me
That is a great journey

An important lesson I learned
Be gentle with yourself
God has a wonderful way
Of giving you exactly what you need
He knows how to give what you need
Verses what you want.

Trust God

We are secure in the Lord

The Lord has become my rock
I lean on Him, for shelter
No-matter what happens
We are secure in the Lord

What a mighty rock He is when we are tired
Walk through the sands of life
Find the shade of a tree
Sit and ponder your thoughts
The Lord is a faithful guide
As we lean on Him

The Lord shelters us day by day
Protecting us by night
As we walk through the storms
Share our fears with the Lord
We are secure

Through the floods of life
That swell to overflowing
He shelters us, find God
A safe retreat in times of need

The Lord is our rock
As we walk the the sands of life
My guide, my helper
We are secure in the Lord
(c)bjsscribbles

Matthew 7:25 The rain came down, the floods came, and the winds blew, and beat on that house; and it didn’t fall, for it was founded on the rock.

A Mother Trusts to Let Go

Yes Father, I will surrender; obey, and let go;
Even though I feel I’m unraveling from within!
The tethers, the scar-tissue of my heart snap!
I release this borrowed problem; it did grow…
In scared-down heart; bitter hardness; all sin;
I held long! As after responsibility left my lap,
I was determined to fix it! Never let child go!
Lost in the dark! Waiting for new day to begin!
Thoughts of doing right, as I stepped in a trap;
Overstepped boundaries, borrowed sorrow…
Fighting a battle I could never/ever hope to win!
Here I am, on my face! I beg for trust, a map
Leading me to re-tether, my heart broken so,
To You dear Father please, Your victory do win!
I lay this mother’s sorrow safely in your lap…
Help my trust in You to grow as I let it all go!
