God’s Gift in Each New Day

 

God blesses me with new life

through the gift of each new day;

it is up to me to acknowledge him

by faith and to choose to enjoy each

day with a sprint of thankful and

anticipation in my footsteps

as I travel along life’s

pathway.

Jesus is my Keeper

 

(Paraphrase of Psalms 23)

Jesus is my Keeper; I’ll be content

as He leads me day by day

to pleasant places

to be renewed in him

along life’s pathway.

Although I often stumble through

many trials and snares,

I’ll not be dismayed

 by the evil doer

as Jesus calms my fears.

How my Lord continues to

keep sustaining me

with daily showers of his

blessings with love,

mercy, and peace.

Now I know that without a doubt,

His goodness will stay with me

all the days of my

earthly life

until heaven’s gates I see.

Friday Verse Journal: Colossians 3:15

Thankful for….

Thankful for a glorious new day;

Thankful for the sun and the rain.

Thankful for the blue sky and the clouds;

Also, when the sun rises and gently goes down.

Thankful for the mountains, the meadows,

And the hills covered with emerald jeweled forests.

Also for the rippling lakes and rumbling oceans where

In the grain-sifting sand, my feet can sink and rest.

Thankful for the twittering birds of the air

and for butterflies fluttering here and there.

Thankful for close friends and family;

Thankful for the holidays when we meet

And the lifetime of cherished memories.

Thankful for their encouragement and their words

And the sweet moments locked forever in my heart.

Thankful for God, our Heavenly Father

Who reigns above forever and ever

And who so did love man

That he authored a lasting plan

To save us from our sins and from

Our many worldly and selfish whims.

Thankful for how God gives life purpose

For each new day with his mission; his focus.

Thankful for Jesus, His Son, and my Savior

And the hope he gives for an eternal future.

Thankful for the Lord who is always listening

And generously showers us with his blessings.

Thankful for the night when I can rest and sleep

Knowing Jesus is lovingly watching over me.

“And let the peace of Christ rule in your hearts to which indeed

you were called… And be thankful.”

Colossians 3:15 (Holy Bible ESV)

Becky’s Sonnet: Waiting for the Sun

004

I awoke early one dark morn

And waited for the sun to dawn.

I lay in bed a bit forlorn

Yet anxious to see the gloriously rising sun.

Darkness wrapped around me like a knitted shroud

As I rested as quietly as could be.

But lo! Only gray billowing clouds

Through the slatted window I could see.

Yet still a dim light did appear

Ushering the darkness away;

No more murky shadows to fear

As deep night transformed to day.

Therefore, with a lifted heart graced by hope

I began a new day’s journey upon life’s emerging slope.

 

Everlasting FREEDOM

Easter Cross

Forever and ever we are free;

Rebirth in Christ through saving belief.

Everlasting and new life;

Eternal home in the vast heavenly sky.

Destined by grace to reside eternally with him;

Owed to Jesus who humbly died for our sins.

Made to persevere, to hope, and to dream

In life, in love, and everlasting liberty.

Somewhere along this

Life’s journey is the one way path

To eternity.
