Stay with me Lord, you are my night and day

Be still, by the river
Sit quietly, knowing the river keeps rolling
Be still, your life keeps flowing
My soul, follows, only you know
I call on my dreams, till tomorrow comes
I know my love has known sorrow
My soul, follows, only you know

We’ll find a way, be still and listen
Stay with me Lord, you are my night and day
As the dawn rises beyond the sky
Be still and listen as the birds fly
My soul, follows, only you know

Knowing the river keeps rolling
Your life keeps flowing
Be still, Sit quietly, listening
Stay with me Lord, you are my night and day
My soul, follows, only you know

God will hear a cry,

The cry
The soul is troubled
For often the eye mistakes
And the brain is trouble
Again and again
Comfort and help
Comes from the Lord
Yet anguish comes from the memory of our sins
Our iniquities
Are saved by the measures of forgiveness
Like the corner of a gem
Placed delicately, do not pass over them
A psalm will carry you to a place you need
Your soul waits for you
God will forgive, he waits for us
To come to him,
Things beyond all powers
The cry of a child, God will hear
Shadows of the world, will appear
As God reveals the answer
And we draw on God’s grace.

Find a sleepy hollow

Find a sleepy hollow
In among the hills
Where the wild flowers roam
I roamed the hills where I was as free
As the wild flowers that grow,
And wither in the sun

I found a sleepy hollow, In among the hills
Where wild flower roam, needing the freedom
Tenderly I now roam, just as the wild flowers
Roam over the mountains and valleys and survive
I found, I am like a wild flower, grown in the valleys, mountains
I found a sleepy hollow, In among the hills
I did not grow up in these hills and valleys
They found me, now I can find the wild flowers
Becoming lost in a valley of flowers
They grew free as I wanted to be free

I left the home land I knew, and roamed
My dreams of life flowed with me
When I left the home land I knew, and roamed
My dreams of life flowed with me
Flowers that grow wild, survive in conditions
Humans can never survive,

In a garden of life. I floated for so many years
I never belonged, one day the garden of flowers set me free

Tracks I left in the land, footsteps, tyre tracks
Breathing the wind, the winds of freedom
As a flower of this land survives in the wild
Not knowing where it lands, I did not know

Life in the wild, is a mystery, yet to be told
I don’t regret the journey, in the wild
I survived
I found a sleepy hollow, In among the hills
I did not grow up in these hills and valleys
They found me, now I can find the wild flowers
Becoming lost in a valley of flowers
They grew free as I wanted to be free

All things come to pass, I wondered how?

 

All things come to pass, I wondered how?
At first it was turmoil, the turmoil slowly passed
Heartaches we have all known, today look back at the heartache
I see now I can smile, there are shadows that linger in the dark
I know now our Lord God, is there guiding me

Search out a rose that sleeps, a bloom that is lost
And a tree that is loosing it’s battle in drought ridden country
All thing in life can grow from the ruins
Let your love grow, develop faith, trust,
The stronger you get, you will endure
All things come to pass, I wondered how?
Don’t worry, talk to God, He will help
In the darkest time, we find a light
The light of a new day
We face our troubles, walking tall
We don’t face them alone
God will wipe your worries away
Don’t worry

Search out a rose that sleeps, a bloom that is lost
And a tree that is loosing it’s battle in drought ridden country
All thing in life can grow from the ruins
Let your love grow, develop faith, trust,
The stronger you get, you will endure

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?

Matthew 6:28
And why do you worry about clothes? Consider how the lilies of the field grow: They do not labor or spin.

Matthew 6:31
Therefore do not worry, saying, ‘What shall we eat?’ or ‘What shall we drink?’ or ‘What shall we wear?’

Matthew 6:34
Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Today has enough trouble of its own.

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

Sharing encourages others

A heart of love flows readily
A soul flowing with generosity
An image of quiet simplicity
A heart of love ready to give
Sharing, yet unseen are the prayers
Prayers of faith, trust, time an effort

The care, edifying others
Sharing encourages others
Sharing began with the beginning of time
With our Creator
The Son gave his life for us
Sharing His life with us
The open hands of life

Heaven gathers it’s blessings
From some distant heaven
Showers you with affection

Don’t let pride get in the way
Don’t let greed get in the way
Pride and greed hinders love

Deep in our heart, is the heart of sharing
A heart that remains gentle
Laying open our heart, with means
That we can touch the lives of others
With a gentle heart, we can open our live
To the dedication enabling us to give help
Open our heart, Open our hands
There will be love in the world.

Song of Solomon 5:5 I arose to open for my beloved, and my hands …
… I arose to open for my beloved, and my hands dripped with myrrh, my fingers with …
I jumped up to open the door for my love, and my hands dripped with perfume. …

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

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

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

With God in our life

I look at my life this year and wonder how God has been working in my life, directing me to a new beginning. I am in awe of God as I get to know God further.

My recovery had been full of ups and downs for a few months, now I am on the last of it all. There are so many brick walls you hit after major surgery. I had, had major surgery before but nothing like having a new hip put it. My prayers were answered every step of the way. My prayers are still being answered every day. I am now able to walk long distances which has been improving my confidence.

My life was put on hold for about 18 months while I waited for surgery, then the recovery time and all the aftermath of your body recovering from all the pain medication, you need to get through the day. I am not taking any pain meds now.

This year has also given me more to be thankful for; I have reached the final stage in my recovery of a long term marriage disaster. God made my life new after my surgery and I was determined to put the past behind me from the moment I walked into the hospital. It was hard but I feel now I have done it.

I am due to give a talk next month on my life; I walked into a church just a few short years ago. Having no idea on what I was doing or where it was going to lead me. God has shown me I can raise above all the ups and downs of my life; and believing in myself that I am equal to all. Turning grief into glory is a mighty challenge, rising above all challenges. With God in our life we can do anything. I still see my psychologist who has been helping me get over the last hurdle of my recovery, there has been times when I thought my PTSD symptoms where coming back. But it was anxiety due to the changes in my body.

It is hard to describe what it feels life; to me it feels as though there is a giant broom that has gone through my body making me feel new. I will give my praises to God for the new life He has given me. I know I will have scars that will rare their ugly head from time to time, but with God in my life I know I can handle the turns that Satan will try to give me..

Everyone that reads my blog would know I have a loyal companion, called Tibby she has been with me through thick and thin. She has been another gift from God, which has given me strength through the toughest of turmoils. She lost her greatest companion last year in the middle of my health struggles, but she is now terribly spoiled. She deserves spoiling as in December she turns 18.There have been many people around me, who gave me life when I did not know there was life. Enabling me to see life as it could be with God in our life.

I never thought I would be where I am today, physically and mentally after 35 yrs of D.V. In 6yrs I turned my life around and claimed my life back. Getting to know Jesus and how Jesus works in our life is amazing.(c)bjsscribbles

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
