Angel at My Side

Angel at my side,

Be ever near, not far.

Angel at my side,

Drawn me closer,

And closer to God.

Angel at my side,

Lead me in my waiting,

And unknowing.

Angel at my side,

I need peace,

And humble joy.

Angel at my side,

Help me see God’s love and healing.

Angel at my side,

Bring happy labor to my life.

Angel at my side,

Inspire and guide this giving heart.

Joy And Sorrow

Just as one season moves into another, so are there like seasons in our life cycles.  There are times of joy and beauty and times of sorrow and suffering.  They sometimes go hand-in-hand.  They are companions on our journey.

We need to befriend them, not control them.  When we hold on to either or both, we stop growth. We stop God’s work in us.

Spring, summer, fall, winter–each has its beauty and difficulties;  each has its dyings and risings.   We need to let God be God.  We need to depend on God’s strength in each phase of the journey. “Fear not.  I am always with you.”

Extension Of God’s Love

Panagia (Thasos) aus Süd

With open arms and hearts we receive God’s Love.
With open arms and love we give that love to others.
With open arms we live and radiate Him.
With open arms we reach out in forgiveness.
With open arms we tend to family and neighbor’s needs.
With open arms we touch each other in pain and grief.
With open arms we support all in prayer.
With open arms we strive to be God’s instrument of peace.
With open arms we desire to live the Christ-life in action and speech.
With open arms we invoke God’s grace to help us be His extension.

Crying Out

I search and search and do not find.
I ask, and ask, and light doesn’t come.
I beg, and beg, to no avail.

I cry, and cry deep within,
And brokenness prevails.
I listen with delight
And soon forget.

The cycle repeats itself
And my love speaks again to my heart.
He gives me hope
And unconditional love.

“Stay close to Me,
And then see the marvels
I have in store for you.”

“Don’t lose heart.
I am with you.
And true to My Word.
Keep looking forward,
And I will lead.”

Storms–Mild, Violent

06-24-09 Ominous Outflow!!!by nebraskasc/Flickr

Life is full of storms/struggles
How we deal with them
Springs forth wellness or ill-health.
The attitude, calling on God for strength,
Brings forth growth and healing—
Healing inwardly and or outwardly.

Life is full of storms/struggles
Mild storms, are the little frustrations,
Disappointments, irritations of life.
To us they may seem great at times.
Take courage, Our Lord is right there to help.
Call on Him, He suffers with us.

Life is full of storms/struggles
Violent storms can be ours.
We feel we cannot handle them.
Alone, no, but with God all is possible.
Come together with Him, with others to support,
Life’s storms cannot be handled alone.

Life is full of storms/struggles
No matter what kind of storm endured,
Gratitude to our loving God makes all new.
Prayer is the healing medicine;
Uniting all to our suffering FRIEND, Jesus,
Who touches our inner most being with peace.

In Stillness, Christ Speaks

In stillness Christ speaks:

Be vigilant.
Be watchful.
Be ready.
Be focused.
Be a light in darkness.
Be alive in Me.
Be eyes for the sightless.
Be ears for the deaf.
Be feet and hands for the needy.
Be true to Me and yourself.
Be wise and true.
Be love for the loveless.
Be in and for Me.
