Please Dear Lord…

But let all who take refuge in you be glad; let them ever sing for joy.
Spread your protection over them; that those who love your name may rejoice in you.
–Psalm 5:11

Please Dear Lord…
April 10, 2012

Search me and see if there be any offensive way in me
Test me oh God and know my heart
Seek deep within and bring my motives to the surface
Fill me with more of You and make me whole
Cleanse me from pride and selfishness oh God

Bring me to Your side
Renew my heart and mind
Comfort me as only You can
Draw me close to You and never let me go
Let me know You are near

Bring me to my knees in reverence and awe
May my fear be of Your glory and power, not of the world or those in it
For You are my guide
I live to please only You
To bring glory and praise to Your name

I pray that You fill me with grace to handle the obstacles that come my way
Give me strength to boldly face injustice and mistreatment
Shower me with discernment to know when to speak and when to be silent
May I see through Your eyes and have compassion on those who seek to devour me
Help me to hold tightly to justice and mercy
To turn the other cheek when I am hit on the other

I need You Lord
I need Your strength, Your wisdom, Your protection
I ask for, no, I humbly beg for Your favor to be upon me in all that I do
Please dear Lord, never leave my side
Be my lamp and my path

Bring me out of all chaos and condemnation with Your praises on my tongue
I want to be bold and stand but instead my flesh fears and worries
I know not what the future holds
But I do know that You hold my future
That You control all that comes against me
You will use all things for Your glory

Help Father God I pray
Help me be a light to those who seek to destroy or defame
Let me not be bitter or prideful
Let me focus on You oh God
Be my shield and my strength in trials
For I know You placed me in circumstances for a purpose
Give me wisdom and help me learn from life tribulations

Hold me Lord and please constantly remind me that You are near
You are near to the brokenhearted
You bless those who call upon Your name
You are my light and my salvation
My saving grace

For if You, my God and Father, are for me then who can be against me
No one can touch Your anointed unless You deem it so
No one can bring harm to me for You have plans to prosper me
No one can stand against me for You oh Lord are with me

You think of me more than the grains of sand on the beach
You, the Creator of the earth and the heavens, sing over me
You have adopted me into Your kingdom as Your daughter
I am Yours and You oh God are mine

No one on earth can destroy me
No schemes of hell can stand against me for You are stronger
You crush the plans of the wicked
You destroy the snare of the fowler

Keep me safe in Your arms oh Lord
Bring my heart peace
Fill my mind with Your thoughts
Lead me in the way everlasting

For God is with Me

God is so faithful and His very word inspires the very core of who I am and all that He wants me to be.  His truth indeed will set us free if only we listen to it…if only we take time to hear Him speak through our circumstances and into our lives…if only we spend time with him, listening to his still small voice above the noise of this world.  This poem is the byproduct of God’s word, a lamp unto my feet, and a sword wielded against the harsh darkness that surrounds.  Not my words but YOURS LORD!  God bless and may you have time to hear God through His word.  All my love.

The Lord is my Shepherd I shall not be in want. He makes me lie down in green pastures, he leads me beside the still waters; he restores my soul. He leads me in path of righteousness for his name’s sake. Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil, for you are with me; your rod and your staff they comfort me. You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies. You anoint my head with oil, my cup runs over. Surely, goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life and I will dwell in the House of the Lord forever. –Psalm 23

Principalities unseen fight against me
Evil seeks to devour
Justice will prevail
For God is with me

He is my strength and my shield
His sword cuts through the lies and deceit
He guards me with his right hand
Giving me refuge in the shadow of his wing
He is my delight and I am His
Though my enemies rise up against me
I shall not fear
For God is with me

He leads the beside the still waters
He restores my soul
He renews my strength
That I may soar on wings of eagles
That I may run and not grow weary
That I may walk and not grow faint
The snare of the fowler shall fail
For God is with me

His rod and His staff bring me great comfort
He is my strong tower
He is my rock and my fortress
No enemy can stand against me
No wicked scheme will endure
The plans of Satan will be destroyed
And good will shine in my life
For God is with me

I will stand in my weakness
For He is strong
I will rise above my fear
For there is no fear for those who love the Lord
I will be triumphant
Confidently resting in the Lord
For God is with me

My All

There are just some days I have to praise Him for all He does, for all He provides, for all He gives, even when I don’t deserve it.  Indeed, my flesh may be weak, I may doubt, I may fear, I may worry…..but internally, deep within my soul, the Spirit leads, trusting, believing, holding to His truths, and relying on the ONE True God to sustain me through it all.

May you trust in the eternal God of the universe, your very Creator, and the One who gives you breath each second of the day.  Praise him all ye nations, praise him in every tongue!  God bless and keep you in the shelter of His mercy and love for now and always.

The LORD is my strength and my shield;
my heart trusts in him, and he helps me.
My heart leaps for joy, and with my song I praise him.
–Psalm 28:7

My All

Lord You are my light and my salvation
My strength and my shield
My heart trusts in You and I am helped
Thank You Father for being my direction
For leading me in paths of righteousness
Help me Lord to do what is good and right
Give me strength to resist temptation
May I cling to You in all that I do
Looking for no one to complete me but You
Bring me comfort in times of loneliness
Surround me with peace when I am restless
Fill me with joy when times are trying
Be my all in all Lord
Keep me in Your view
Touch my heart and settle my soul
