When I’m restless and
Cannot sleep, Jesus is near
Watching over me.
Lord let me be the opal of your treasury;
A different yet lovely gem only you can see.
Lord let me be a delight to your compassionate heart
With a quiet gentleness which will never depart.
Lord let me be a unique creation of your hands
Formed with love and wisdom that only you understand.
Lord let me be a quiet person with a gentle soul
Which never desires to hurt or cause turnmoil.
Lord let me live in the meadow of your everlasting love
Where wildflowers bloom and peace rules like softly singing dove.
Lord let me be forever safe inside our outstretched arms
Where I always feel welcomed and sheltered from this world’s storms.
Lord let me be alive with hope of your everlasting grace
While waiting for your return when we’ll all see your shining face.
For it was you who had coaxed me and drew me ever nearer
By forgiving my sins and caring for me so I no longer live in fear.
Lord let me be always sure and confident of your final victory
Over all evil and sinfulness which you will smite forever triumphantly.
And Lord let all of us be forever safe inside your heavenly home
Where we will all live in joy, peace, and love in your everlasting kingdom.
How each year I think
Of winter’s end wishing for
The fresh start of spring.
Once again, I have just attempted another haiku challenge from Ronovan Writes blog using the words “think” and “fresh”. They are such a fun challenge! If you like poetry and haiku’s then I invite you to also accept his challenge at this link: https://ronovanwrites.wordpress.com/2015/05/25/
The sun brightly appears after a stormy spell
Letting everyone know that all again is well.
The shrilling wind has lessened its’ churning
While the pelting rain has ceased it’s drumming.
Trees, shrubs, flowers, and everything green
Is bathed in wetness on this summery day in Spring.
A new fresh scent permeates and filters the air;
A welcomed sign that the earth is renewed and fair.
Such a sweet blessing to remember and realize
That the loving Lord is in charge: rain, snow, or sunshine.
And at night when the orange setting sun is dipping low,
He stays in charge of all our nights, our days and every tomorrow.
Guide and teacher of God and his amazing love.
Ever passionately kind to help the sick, the mute, and the blind.
Never forsaking, never forgetting; always loving, always forgiving.
Trustworthy and wise, he softly wipes the tears from our eyes.
Listens with tender care to our silent and unseen prayers
Empathic and understanding while remembering his time of suffering.
Savior of all who have sinned as we are drawn closer to him.
Healer of the broken heart and soul, making us stronger and whole.
Eternally and forever faithful, never leaving or letting us go.
Protective shield through every storm keeping us safe from harm.
Hears and sees our tears; knows all our pains through the years.
Everlasting and loving friend on whom we can always depend.
Rescuer and redeemer who saves us for life forever after.
Deliverer of never ending hope and lasting peace for our souls.
