Waiting on God

Waiting for God Easy to say but hard to do. Sinful human nature wants to run. “I need it now,” I am tempted to say. But the Holy Spirit commands me to wait. For His glory and my good, He causes me to follow Him. Obeying my God Even when my own way I want, […]

“Come, Lord Jesus.”

As we walk our journey here on earth, we yearn and pray
 That thou wilt send thy Son to take us home one day.
 Come, Lord Jesus, come. Oh, come quickly.
 
 We hear the steps of his chariots drawing nigh.
 The whispers growing louder as men seem to grow higher and high.

Christmas Prayer

Lord give not the joy that centers on passing things But grant to me the joy Thy Holy Spirit brings. Withhold from me the peace that is shattered in a minute. But give me, Lord, the peace that has Thy blessing in it. Do not give me love that is a weak façade, But bless […]

The Tree

This is the Day Which the Lord Hath Made

Wispy tendrils of rising mist, Rainbow droplets by sunlight kissed; Hushed peace, a stillness oh so sweet, As scenes slowly dance forth and meet.   A peaceful new morn is arrayed, New mercies lovingly displayed. Gently our Lord’s presence is known, His lovingkindness sweetly shown.   Heavy eyelids softened in awe Behold scenes unfold without […]

Serenity

“Thou wilt keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on thee: because he trusteth in thee.”   —Isaiah 26:3   Evil days, we often hear, are these. Restlessness and strife in all degrees, Hate and turbulence and riot rife Seem to be our troubled way of life. …And our children’s, too.   Inner conflicts […]
