A journey with God

When God came into my life
I knew there was a higher power
I did not know what I would feel
The feeling that has risen from dust
God knew, I was searching
He knew what he would see when he found me

God created us, he put us here on earth
To lead this life, I begun anew
Learning as I go
Sharing, giving what I can

God knew I would stumble
Oh! how I have fallen at times
He knew I would suffer
He knew I would call out
Sometimes crying out to Jesus

In desperation

So many mistakes, so many difficult choices
He knew that I would falter
Lessons I needed to learn from them
There were times, when it was more that I could take

I cried out

People told me, God had a plan for me
Oh! at times I wish I knew
From the very first day I was born
As you can tell, it’s frustrating at times
But soon I started to see His way

A new journey started

God was teaching me patience
How to grow in patience
If only I knew, slowly
Love, trust, strength, faith and Grace

A new life in God

The love the grew inside me
All the good, that you do
God has be noticing the changes I made
He has seen the work I’ve done

He has carried me
Placed his hands
On my shoulders
Knowing the pain I carried
In my heart, each and every day

Life brought me to my knees
Some gave up on me
God has kept the ones around
That are true

There came a day
When I saw
The hand of God at work
The love He has been sharing
God saved my life
God created my life for me

 

A journey with God
In Jesus name Amen

Peace and Hope

Lately I’ve been wondering, “Why?” I’m exhausted in the last 6 years I’ve done a great deal. I’ve done a complete turn around in my life. Resettled built a home, not literally moved into a small home. God replaced all the things I lost tenfold. I did  not realise how exhausting life can be renewing your life. There has been so much I gathered in 6yrs, so much life.

 

A jolt of energy has happened today
Energy to write, I’ve struggled lately
My sleep takes me on a journey
Something inside me shifts into place
The old ways of life and “being” seem to shed off me
The weight is lighter on my shoulders
I’m floating, today
“I’ve changed
All that I know and known to be true”
The path I’m traveling, I’m not to blame

 

The good and the bad, everything and I mean everything
Are all part of my life, I don’t know why things happened
Or what is going to happen, there’s
Just knowing someone is there
Looking after me, no matter what
God is there

Habits and ways well lived for a long time
Have ways of showing up at inopportune times
Holding you from moving forward
There are times when I’m stuck
Struggling to move forward
I’ve been leaping forward then
I crash in exhaustion

Life takes me on a ride
Full of ups and downs
Life keeps moving
Far beyond my reach
I don’t have much option
It’s life

I have a say in the path I take
Carry within my heart what it knows to be true
Honour the whispers that linger
In my soul
They will carry me on my path
to success

I’ve been continually letting go
I’ve struggled, but I had to let go
Parts of me that are well worn
I don’t need them anymore
From time to time they rise
I have the ability to live above them
I know I can do it

There is the journey of life to take now
The piers where my life stood before
Have been wipe clean

There’s a new day rising
There is only forward now

Peace and Hope
Romans
5. 1 Therefore, since we have been justified through faith, we[a] have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ, 2 through whom we have gained access by faith into this grace in which we now stand. And we[b] boast in the hope of the glory of God. 3 Not only so, but we[c] also glory in our sufferings, because we know that suffering produces perseverance; 4 perseverance, character; and character, hope. 5 And hope does not put us to shame, because God’s love has been poured out into our hearts through the Holy Spirit, who has been given to us..

Praise to God for a Living Hope
1 Peter 3-5
3 Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ! In his great mercy he has given us new birth into a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead, 4 and into an inheritance that can never perish, spoil or fade. This inheritance is kept in heaven for you, 5 who through faith are shielded by God’s power until the coming of the salvation that is ready to be revealed in the last time.

As you would trust in God himself

Trust in your own
Untried in strength an ability
As you would trust in God himself
Your own untried ability, emerge whole in God
Dreams unfathomed that lie in the deep
Of vast oceans, the silent mind rolls
Back and forth calming forces that lie

Seek the calming forces, across vast oceans
Passions which the winds can bring the,
Guiding light of God, no man can limit what God can do
Believe in the power of God, the creator of all
Tread the heights with new found strength
Press on, achieve all you can with God at your side.

The beauty of God’s world, amazes me

The beauty of God’s world amazes me, each morning. At the moment without God in my life, I don’t know how I would get through each day. After my Doctors appointment, I have been doing some thinking and wrote this.

———————

 

I walk each morning enjoying the early morning sunrise,
I tilt my head across the hills, focusing my eyes on the soft powdery sky
A soft gentle breeze crosses my body, I feel a presence
My eyes search, the horizon, there is a quietness about
The early morning brings a special time for me
God’s peace is with me, each morning
Trees, and vines, growing rapidly
Birds, guide my pathway, from tree to tree

Among the hills
The beauty of God’s world, amazes me
Each day I feel God as I walk and continually pray
The sun rises over the hills, images rise among the clouds
Dear Heavenly Father, I cry out to you for help, keep me safe,
Show me the way of life, give me hope, there is always hope
As my Faith grows, along with Trust, I feel Your love, God
Your love has given me the strength to face my fears
A gentle breeze flows across my body, sending shivers down my spine
God is with me, I know He is there
With God in my life, I know I am never alone
God, I know You were with me, right from my birth
I’ve opened my heart to You, You are inside my heart
Guiding me, trust is now abiding in my heart
My prayers to You have enabled me to master my life
God never leaves us, I know that now
A soft breath of air crosses my face
God has heard me this morning
Life has gathered me to a life I never knew, now many surprises each day
Strength, trust, faith in God, outweighs, sorrows, or regrets.
There is a tomorrow, the sun will shine, my walks guided by God
Continue each day, with birds singing God’s tune
Memories come and go, I remind myself, memories also fade
But now I live to enjoy life anew each day, and all it may bring.

Your Spirit, is in us all

The many twist and turns in life, we can know that God is there willing to help us all. I’ve been checking some of my prayers in my journal today. To hot in Australia to venture outside today.

 

I speak of Your greatness Lord,
I talk of You and Your Goodness
Words You share

Though I have only known You a short time,
I see the many wonderful things You do
I’ve spread Your word to many

Know that I now know, You Lord, please don’t leave me
For the ones that follow, should know Your greatness as I do
Your power, that shapes a world

Dear Lord, I feel Your power each day
The wind You create reaches far above the skies
Your Spirit, is in us all
There is no – one like You

I’ve seen troubles and hard times
I had to see them, You were with me
But I did not know it then
You have picked me up, given me a new life
Together, I can do more
Your comfort shelters me
Praising You each day
In Jesus name Amen

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

Live in the presence of God

Fearless, exiled from all
Unscrupulous foes, surround
One thing desired, above all else
A simple place of peace
Beyond a city, where unscrupulous foes
Abide,

Live in the presence of God
In God’s house, we may live day by day

We are in God’s light,
No sun or candle needed
We are in God’s light

Though we know it not
Our eyes are opened
To see where we are

God who made the world
So fair, yet triumph
Changes to sadness
Sometimes God hides from us
In abandonment our soul reaches out to
Our Redeemer, who controls the wind and waves
God draws us to him in trust, gathering us from exile

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!

May You touch our lives

You give us a new heart and mind
My heart had hardened, with years of grinding
You took away my hardened heart
And gave me a new heart, softened and new
Your spirit now thrives in us all
As we follow Your ways
That You have shown us

Dear God, may You touch our lives
So that we can awaken Your spirit that lives quietly within us
As the Holy Spirit flows, through heaven and earth
Our lives may feel the Joy of Your Spirit
So we cannot be overpowered by the demonic Spirits of the world
May Your Spirit cleanse us of all worldly things
So we cannot be overpowered by sin

You touch our lives so that we can be born anew
Leading us to heaven, as we fight for all good on earth
I knew there was a life I could lead, I was led to you
You have heard my prayers, You softened my hardened heart
I listen for You now, many are sighing, this Christmas
Searching for you, their Saviour, they do not know where to turn
Your power can lift the hearts of many, blending their souls with yours
Bringing them Joy, when they need it most, they maybe sad
Hurt, or in despair, somewhere, show them, so they may find You, as I did
There is trust in Your word, I found trust again, there is victory over despair and people trusting in you and sure of victory through the great grace you give in answer to our prayers. Amen.
There is Grace in  God

In Jesus name Amen

Trust

There was a dream when I first saw God
Contain within a dream was a story
Across a crowded field of people
Or was it lost in a stony desert?
I saw a pair of eyes, peering down
Wiping droplets of perspiration
From my brow, across the heavens
Each turn, I saw His eyes
Following me, I walked into the night
Following the sky, stars guiding me
Gems twinkled as I crossed the desert

A vision guided me, through eyes,
So piercing, a vision through God
So tired, I felt my body lifting me
Across the piercing hot, stony desert
All other searches, I left behind
All energies zapped, I could barely push my way through
My dreams are cluttered of so many stories
Some many people, clutter your story
But those eyes see an empty field
Angels appear, walking, softly
As if those eyes, have sent me a message
Follow your heart, and you will be lifted up
To Jesus
Though by chance a message has been sent
I walked further into my dream
Time has delivered me into a field
Of flowers, all the season revolve
About my dreams
I stand looking up into the heavens
There is a new earth about me
Jesus has guided me in my dreams
A vision guided me to Jesus
To The city of God who loves us
A dream within a dream
Amen
Matthew 12:21 And in his name shall the Gentiles trust.
Matthew 27:43 He trusts in God. Let God deliver him now, if he wants him; for he said,’I am the Son of God.'”
Mark 10:24 The disciples were amazed at his words. But Jesus answered again, “Children, how hard is it for those who trust in riches to enter into the Kingdom of God!
Luke 16:11 If therefore you have not been faithful in the unrighteous mammon, who will commit to your trust the true riches?
