Sea of life raging
Tidal waves rising,
Over and around me;
Remembering Jesus, my Savior,
My friend and shield will never abandon me.
Walk in the firmness of faith
And not in nagging doubt;
Walk in unwavering belief
That Jesus is Lord and King.
Walk in steadfast hope
Even while climbing a slippery slope
Of troubles and tribulations
Through this earthly life’s
Wilderness and desert lands.
Walk in trust and confidence
Knowing that all the Lord’s
Plans will ultimately prevail
And that his unfathomable
Ocean of love will never fail.
His never-ending love which can
Reach the furthest star and
Touch the bottom of the deepest sea.
And fill all the voids of earth and space;
The boundaries of his love,
No one can perceive.
Walk in sheer delight
Of God’s revealing light;
A beacon leading us the way
To the road he has prepared today.
Yes, walk in faith never doubting
That God of heaven is holy and supreme.
And that his son, Jesus is indeed
Lord, Savior and king
Who will reign for all
Walk in faith.
Holy celebration on springtime morn:
Everlasting is Jesus, Our Savior and Lord!
In heaven now where he forever reigns:
Salvation he has brought; praise be his glorious name!!
Resurrected from the grip of death;
In hope he lives, ever victorious.
Son rises and shines on us early Easter morning:
Eternal life he is gladly giving.
Now and for all eternity,
He lives inside the hearts of all who believe.
Somewhere in this day is an unhurried
moment in which to sit beneath God’s
and be showered by his love with
droplets of his mercy and never-ending
Somewhere in this day, God sits
patently and waits for me to
draw closer to his gracious throne;
where I can sit in quiet fellowship
with him alone in a restful, silent place.
Somewhere in this day as I
meander and journey along,
I will hear him in the quiet birdsong
underneath the wintry sunshine’s
I then realize he is gently reminding me
that he is much nearer than I think.
And he will reveal himself again
somewhere in this day.
At first, the sun ascended the winter sky.
the day then declared, banishing the dark;
the deep hours of persistent night.
At first, the new snow fallen sparkled
under the light of the shining sun
as if brilliant diamonds were
dispersed in the white frozen surface.
And soon a solitary hare and a squirrel
jumped and ran about on a
creation of ways that interweave
across the ice-crusted pale ground.
At first the oaks, the elm trees,
and the trees of maple,
removed bare of their clothes,
their perfumed autumn garments of resin,
stood resolute to guard this silent scene
where, in the end, there remains
a soft calmness across the ghostly drifts
of twinkled whiteness.
At first a search in the quiet mind:
the trip begins of the thoughtful one
where the heart leads the soul to a
place of relaxing peace.
Pray in the morning and in the quiet interludes of the day;
Release to God all your cares and your worries along the way.
Enter and remain in God’s holy presence
Surrounded by his unchanging love and
Saturated with his all amazing grace.
Internal struggles that only he understands,
Now alleviated by his unseen yet compassionate hand.
Goodness and mercies, he has kept in store
Filter softly down in a warm sunlit shower.
Open heart and open mind to hear his word
Remembering he is God: Jesus is Savior and Lord
Who abides in you and promises to forever stay.
Advance and step now into the unknown future of this day
Remembering and trusting in him as you go;
Doubting never that God is everlastingly faithful.
Proverbs 3:5-6 (Holy Bible English Standard Version):
“Trust in the Lord with all your heart and do not lean
on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge
him and he will make straight your paths.”
Let your conversation be always full of grace, seasoned with salt, so that you may know how to answer everyone. ~ Colossians 4:6
