My Heart Bleeds

We have all waked the road of turmoil, broken hearts and pain at some point in this life.   We have all journeyed into thoughts of darkness and despair, yet still we stand! We stand because of God, despite our afflictions, despite our doubt. We stand because in our soul, the very core of who we are, we feel the very hand of God moving, stirring the heart, healing the wounds, and making us beautiful once again. Though our hearts may bleed, it is indeed God’s healing love that brings us back to a place of peace and rest. May you find your rest in Him, especially when your heart is bleeding and the circumstances appear so dark and bleak. Remember, God is there. Hold tight to Him, cry out to Him!! Let Him bring healing through and through!

The Spirit of the Lord GOD is upon me,
Because the LORD has anointed me to bring good news to the afflicted;
He has sent me to bind up the brokenhearted,
To proclaim liberty to captives and freedom to prisoners;
To proclaim the favorable year of the LORD and the day of vengeance of our God;
To comfort all who mourn, giving them a garland instead of ashes,
The oil of gladness instead of mourning,
The mantle of praise instead of a spirit of fainting.
So they will be called oaks of righteousness,
The planting of the LORD, that He may be glorified.
Isaiah 61:1-3

My Heart Bleeds

I stand broken and torn
My heart laid open before You Lord
My God, my Savior save me from this pain
Shelter me in the shadow of Your wing
Protect me from Satan’s snares
Fill me with You O God
This world hurts so much
Despite Your loving hand
My heart bleeds before You
Your desires within me are so strong
Cutting to the core of my very soul
Shattering my peace
Breaking me even more
I want You Lord to be all that I need
No one or nothing else will do
Fill me please
This is my cry
My heart’s desire is to need only You
Please, Father God heal this broken heart

Waves of Life

This hope we have as an anchor for the soul, both sure and steadfast,
and which enters the Presence behind the veil,
where the forerunner has entered for us, even Jesus,
having become the High Priest forever, according to the order of Malchizedek.
~ Hebrews 6:19-20

Waves of Life

Glimmering in the reflection of sunlight
Momentarily resting gently at the dock
Tattered yet sea worthy
This boat sits dented and dirty
Storms of chaos pass through
Winds of trials toss it to and fro
Waves of temptation crash over it
Tides of life rise
Trying to consume
Gales of worldly wind seek to destroy
Yet still it remains tethered to the dock
Anchored in Christ redeeming blood
Securely resting in the Lord
He will set the course
Sailing the ebb and flow of His love
Navigating through the harshest storms
This boat will endure the waves of life

Lord, You are so Good to Me!

But as for me, it is good to be near God.
I have made the Sovereign LORD my refuge;
I will tell of all Your good deeds.
~ Psalm 73:28

Lord, You are so Good to Me!

Lord God You are so good to me
Blessing me beyond compare
Each day You give me all I need
Never giving more than I can bear

I trust You to heal me completely
Making me healthy and new
Hearing my prayers and pleas
I humbly bring them before You

Lord You bring me comfort
Filling me with peace and love
Providing understanding and support
Blessing me with angels from heaven above

For Your continuing healing upon me
I thank You so very much
My praise to You will forever be
Thank You for Your loving touch

To You my very life I owe
Each and every day I give to You
For on my own I cannot grow
So thank You Lord for all You do

Hope Fulfilled ~ Inspired by Proverbs 119

I wait on the Lord, my soul doth wait, and in his word I hope.
~ Psalm 130:5

Hope Fulfilled

I have hidden Your word in my heart
I have chosen the way of faithfulness
I have set my heart on Your laws
Be gracious to me o Lord
Give me understanding so that I may keep you law
And obey it with all my heart
Direct me in the path of Your commands
For there I find delight
Never take Your word of truth from my mouth
May I wholeheartedly follow Your decrees
To all perfection I see a limit
But Your commands are boundless
I gain understanding from Your precepts
Therefore I hate every wrong path
Your word is a lamp unto my feet
A light unto my path
Because I love Your commands
More than gold, more than pure gold
Direct my steps by Your word
And let no iniquity have dominion over me
Make Your face to shine upon Your servant
And teach me Your statutes

Overcomer ~ Mandisa

Seems that when it rains, it pours! Just as my clouds begin to clear, I find that others around me are struggling greatly. Some are dealing with losing their homes, others facing severe illnesses, and still others are facing marriage problems and financial hardships. In this life, the trials just keep coming and striking blows harder than we can often handle. But alas, God walks through all the storms of life with us, keeping us in the palm of his hands, holding us tight and filling us with love and peace deep in our souls.

It is imperative that you remember and hold tight to the knowledge that with the joy of Christ in your heart, you can be an overcomer, residing in his strength to see you through and his wisdom to direct your steps.  God bless and keep you always my friends <3

I can do all things through Christ who gives me strength!!
~ Philippians 413

I pray that out of his glorious riches he may strengthen you with power through his Spirit in your inner being…
~ Ephesians 3:16

But he said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.”
Therefore I will boast all the more gladly about my weaknesses, so that Christ’s power may rest on me.
~ 2 Corinthians 12:9

The Storm

The LORD is my rock, my fortress and my deliverer;
my God is my rock, in whom I take refuge,
my shield and the horn of my salvation, my stronghold.
~ Psalm 18:2 ~

The Storm

Grey clouds hover
Blocking the sunlight
Storms on the horizon
Flooding the soul

Winds blow wildly
Tossing me to and fro
Holding tight to God
I will never let go

Lightening crashes
Blinding the heart
Causing confusion
So easily I fall apart

The thunder resounds
Bringing heartbreak and pain
But this to will pass
For God will break the chain

Clouds will clear
Winds will fade
Within this storm
I will not be afraid

For God is near
He holds me in his hands
Peace will come
For in Him I stand
