freedom so profound

I have been experiencing a great deal of new feelings lately, not sure of what is going on in my life. Now I know, I am experiencing freedom for the first time in my life. It is a great feeling. Freedom.

—————

 

As far as the eye can see,
As far as the heart and soul feel
A thunder roars inside,
The horizon is alive with fury
The sea shapes the earth
Deep shades of blue tint the horizon
Salt crystallizes my brow
There is a curse that breathes
As the tide draws away
Creating the shapes of the earth mesmerizing

I tuck in my jacket, huddle inside
Such a striking sound, airborne
Thunder roars in my ears, sounds or oceans
Airborne, breezes gather images
Feeling cold, I gather my jacket, tightly
I embrace my walk of freedom with every stride
Rain caresses my face, yet a fire burns inside
Free is the soul, free is the heart, once bound
So profound

We take our worries to God

Lay our cares at the bottom of the cross
Out of the darkness, we see the light
The deepest contrast of life
I have known despair
In times of difficulty
Wisdom shines its light
God has shown me
My strength will hold
My burdens, sometimes harsh
Yet the pain, now lightened
Turn your eyes towards the hills
See the hope shine in your eyes
Hope turns in your heart
Glimpses of light shines
In the wonder of God’s light
Amen

In the dark of night

In the dark of night, sometimes I don’t know the way
God is there waiting for me, if I pray, tonight
I know He is there ready for me, waiting to listen
He sent, His Son to show us the way to the light
God has shown me the way, the way to live right
There are times when around me comes dark thoughts, dark fear
I call Jesus, I pray for help, I know he will hear me
Jesus shows me the way, to trust and faithPRAYER-SERIES
He is in my heart, I live now as I should
Live for Jesus, trust him, When you give up your ways
Of living in the darkness
See the Saviour, who saves us all

In Jesus name Amen

Your image waiting for me

A journey through despair
Across valleys
I came through a journey once
My sight more powerful than the darkness
Through the night visions of the past
Fair memories of eyes that once smiled
Perfume lingered, as I came through the valley
,
Through the journey I began to see
Fair and far, images floating looking up
Searching the stars, leading them
Toward the shore, of my lost
The arrow, now lingering, floating
Hope, now lingers in the future
As I journey across the valley

Empty from a journey through the valley
Though a light now shines, like a beam
Lightning flashes across the horizon
Desolate, in despair, loves eyes now searching
Dear God, I have journeyed, but I fell
My soul searching for you God,
Now as I come through the valley
I recognised Your image waiting for 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

Abiding in Him.

Thoughts sometimes come to my mind
Sometime my mind is covered in pictures
Today my thoughts have changed to that of Jesus
Jesus flocked by children, the little lambs of God
And one lying in his arms, searching Jesus’s eyes
A child knowing he is secure in Jesus’s arms

I have been weary of late, my heart and soul
Weary of thoughts, my ills had caught up with me
My Spirit longed for the goals I set, myself
My yearning, with every fibre of my body
Leans on Jesus’s body, Oh! to be that child again
Lying on Jesus’s lap, to forget my fears
To forget the tears I shed, and swiftly fall into a peaceful sleep

Life is not always so, sometimes we fall
Our earthly being, is always searching
For something more, to fill our heart
But now I feel differently, I feel Jesus in my heart
He is my Saviour, and my faithful one.
He knows my sins of the past, He forgave me
Today He sees me just as I am
With compassion in his heart not judging me
Yet when I am weak, and sinful
I talk to Jesus and ask for forgiveness
Jesus was like us once, He walked the earth
He understands our troubles, and through love
He guides us through our troubles
Abiding in Him.

In Jesus name Amen

There is beauty in your world

Dear Lord

There is peace in your world
When we come to understand your ways
There is a beauty in your world
A beauty I have come to understand
Your gift of Life, has given me a chance to be free
A freedom in life uncommon to many who don’t know You

Each day now is a gift in freedom
You have granted me the power to accept Your world
Each day now as I progress is an opportunity in life
I live now in Your presence

As I live now, knowing You are with me
As I take my step into a new world
Knowing I am without pain
I see the light of Your world
That was your to share with us all
.

In Jesus name Amen

Not so far away

Something I wish to do with Tibby when she comes home to me. Tibby and Charlie used to love the beach together.
She was so funny as a baby dog when I took them to the beach she would run up and down the foreshore, then stand still and bark at the waves as they clash at the shore. With God’s healing I will get there soon, the beach is only an hour away even though I live in the country. It might take me a couple of months but I will get there.

 


Today I dream of a stroll
Not so far away
Shadows begin making me look so much taller
I walk beside the sea, leaving footprints
In the soft sand, clouds floating above
Reflections of the sun, warming my soul
Wind whistles through my ears, blowing my hair
Fresh sea air, oceans tingling my feet as I walk


I stood for a long time, feeling my feet sink
Into the soft sand and the healing waters of the ocean
About my legs, I watched the waves rise and move
Rolling their silver waters, soft foamy bubbles
Then die away as they reached the foreshore

A light shade of blue reflected around me
Roaring waves, made me think of danger
There is horror and beauty by the water

Small fish tickled my toes, flickering past my legs
Fish from the fathoms of the ocean
As if viewing for your attention
Walking weightless from my dreams, feeling the of healing my legs
My thoughts drifted to dreams of
A childhood, playing carefree
Enjoying a peace, permeating through my body

 

A recurrent rhythmic action of waves
Images of words and actions, floating
Across the ocean, overwhelming emotions
Capture my heart as I float away
Across the lonely shore
There is a place where time stand still

 
Genesis 37:8 His brothers said to him, “Will you indeed reign over us? Or will you indeed have dominion over us?” They hated him all the more for his dreams and for his words.

Matthew 8:26 “Why are you so easily frightened,” He replied, “you men of little faith?” Then He rose and reproved the winds and the waves, and there was a perfect calm;

Psalms 148:7 Give praise to the Lord from the earth, you great sea-beasts, and deep places:

At first I prayed

When at first I started praying, I was so insecure, I had no  idea what I was doing. Now I am writing prayers, not hesitating in my prayers. Sometimes I am tongue twisted when I pray out loud, I do better this way, somehow God has heard my prayers.

At first I prayed
The first time I prayed
Embarrassed, yet I prayed for light
Now, a light shone before me
I could see the way through
Swiftly I walked, through the light
I prayed for strength, that I might
Walk the road, with unfaltering power
Meeting the heavens, winning
Then I prayed earnestly for faith
So I could trust again, I now Trust God with my life
I live now for God’s everlasting peace
Confident in God’s truth’s, confident in God’s Love
A foes are now at bay, I pray earnestly for Love
Deep Love of God, a living love that would not fail
No more darkness, living in the light of strength and faith
Openings everywhere, God has waited, patiently
For me to continually pray
Continually pray the everlasting prayer
In Jesus name Amen

Healing time

Australia we healed together

———————-

Where the mountains are blue, glistening with gems,
Home is where the mountains talk to me, feel the heart of the mountains
Let the rivers run down below the tall gums, so striking and tall
There is wisdom in the land, there is soul in this land
Older than time itself, so much to know and learn
Try to understand this land, find the healing time
Across the wide brown land, covered in wattle

You’ve heard my voice, You’ve felt my tears
For so many years, when I cried,you cried,
You’ve laughed, you’ve sung, cheers to my joy
The pain of my tears, were swept away, as I,
Learned to walk with you, you healed as I healed

Your tune, marched me through the darker days
I walked a line, towards the mountains, towards the sky
Finding my way, where the mountains talk and the river runs free
Wisdom and soul, flows through my heart in this land
Yet I am not afraid, I am not alone
You brought me back to the mountains, where the blue reaches the sky

Where the mountains are blue, glistening with gems,
Home is where the mountains talk to me, feel the heart of the mountains
Let the rivers run down below the tall gums, so striking and tall
There is wisdom in the land, there is soul in this land
The sun rises above this land, that no-one can understand
A sun golden and pure, rebirths each days
In this healing time of nature and me

You’ve heard my voice, You’ve felt my tears
For so many years, when I cried, you cried,
You’ve laughed, you’ve sung, cheers to my joy
The pain of my tears, were swept away, as I,
Learned to walk with you, you healed as I healed
