Sea of life raging
Tidal waves rising,
Over and around me;
Remembering Jesus, my Savior,
My friend and shield will never abandon me.
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.”
The commotion of the day
gently ebbs away
into the twilight eve and
No more worries or
dilemmas to solve.
No more demands to meet
or deadlines to defeat.
No more explanations of why
or expectations you tried so
hard to satisfy.
Just a sweet time to
be with the Lord;
remembering his gentle word
to be still and quietly rest.
A time of thoughtful reflection
Of that day’s direction.
A time to overcome disappointment,
pain, and tears of sorrow
with renewed hope for tomorrow.
By sleeping beneath the Lord’s
silent yet comforting hand
until the sun rises again;
the gift of peace and quietness.
Although late, I still want to share a new Christmas poem. I hope everyone who is reading this has had a wonderful and blessed Christmas:
Carefully placed and standing where all can see
Heralding angel poised above the pine needle green.
Rows of colorful lights brighten the scene
Infused and trimmed by love unseen.
Stars, snowflakes, and bulbs adorn the limbs
Trustfully reminding us of him and the
Manger scene where he was born;
Arriving long ago on Christmas morn.
Shepherds heard and flocked to see the sight;
Taught by angels who appeared in a great light.
Remembering and honoring many years later
Eventual arrival of the Lord Jesus, our Savior;
Everlasting King who will rule forever and ever.
Steadfast and sincere belief
In Almighty God and his Son Jesus.
Mindful and obedient to His true and holy word;
Personally accepting Jesus as Savior and Lord.
Living each day in joyfulness and not sorrow;
Yesterday’s tears washed away by hope for tomorrow.
Tenderness and kindness shown to everyone I see;
Remembering God’s never ending love shown to me.
Unwavering faith in the goal of reaching heaven.
Serving gladly and sharing about Him.
Teachable soul continuing to depend on Jesus
by praying and being led daily by his Holy Spirit.
PRAYER: Spending Time with God
Personal conversation and
Reflection with God, my Heavenly Father
Admission of sin and plea for forgiveness and mercy
Yesterday’s generous blessings remembered
Everyday needs requested and met through God’s perfect grace
Remembering always God’s greatness and never ending love through Jesus
Matthew 6:6 (Holy Bible New International Version):
“But when you prayer, go into your room, close the door and pray to your Father, who is unseen. Then your Father, who sees what is done in secret, will reward you.”
Let your conversation be always full of grace, seasoned with salt, so that you may know how to answer everyone. ~ Colossians 4:6
