PLEASE HUG THEM (My Prayer And Song For All Who Are Going Through Extreme Trials)

I dedicate this precious song to all who are trapped or feel like they are trapped in circumstances beyond their control. Particularly, surrounding the virus atm. I think of any areas of natural disaster, abuse, addictions, hunger, thirst, loneliness, homelessness, unemployment, sickness, loss of loved ones, any situation where you’ve lost all hope …

PLEASE HUG THEM (for those who are hurting)
Tears are welling up inside
I see so much around me
Turmoil, sadness, unbelief
Too much for this heart to see

Children crying, some dying
Hunger, thirst, poverty
No love given, no love there
Vacant eyes stare distantly

Chorus
There are so many hurting
So many feeling hopeless
So many lost, abandoned
Sick and dying
And I’m too far away
So all I can do is pray
God, please hug your loved ones
Those in need, today
Please hug them Lord in Jesus’ name
And take their pain away

Women lost without their homes
Men despair without income
Families torn, separated
Floods, fires and storms make them numb

Watching death take victory
Among them that are so close
Feeling left behind and worthless
Overwhelmed by each new dose

Chorus
There are so many hurting
So many feeling hopeless
So many lost, abandoned
Sick and dying
And I’m too far away
So all I can do is pray
God, please hug your loved ones
Those in need, today
Please hug them Lord in Jesus’ name
And take their pain away

Bridge
Hug them as they’ve never been hugged before
Hug them till love opens heaven’s door
Hug them till their knees lower to the floor
And with joy they praise and adore

So that is why I cry now
And stand before You broken
Release them from emptiness
Let Love be heard and spoken

All Your creatures are groaning
And nothing can stay the same
Daily there is tragedy
Lord, reveal Your great Name

Chorus
There are so many hurting
So many feeling hopeless
So many lost, abandoned
Sick and dying
And I’m too far away
So all I can do is pray
God, please hug your loved ones
Those in need, today
Please hug them Lord in Jesus’ name
And take their pain away
And take their pain away

HONESTY

Honesty

Following dearly in His footsteps
Tracing them tenderly with my feet
Saying I never ever will deny Him
But the Lord turned, and looked upon me

Shall the truth be hidden from Him
Deepest, honest thoughts under clouds of shame
Surely this I cannot conceal or prosper
The Lord turned, and looked upon me again

Please forgive my real intentions
Up they spring when I don’t confide
Help me, strengthen me, never leave me
Still the Lord turned, and looked upon me, His child

Are we really being faithful – Proud of ourselves
Telling all, in Him we trust
Do we daily sin without confession
Will the Lord turn, and look upon us?

“And the Lord turned, and looked upon Peter. And Peter remembered the word of the Lord, how He had said unto him, Before the cock crow, thou shalt deny Me thrice. And Peter went out, and wept bitterly.” Luke 22:61-62

1. Hast thou heard Him, seen Him, known Him?
Is not thine a captured heart? Chief among ten
thousand own Him, Joyful choose the better part.

Chorus: Captivated by His beauty, Worthy tribute
haste to bring. Let His peerless worth constrain
thee, Crown Him now unrivaled King.

2. What can strip the seeming beauty, From the
idols of the earth? Not a sense of right or duty, But
the sight of peerless worth.

3. ‘Tis that look that melted Peter, ‘Tis that face that
Stephen saw, ‘Tis that heart that wept with Mary,
Can alone from idols draw.

4. In your service Lord defend us. In our hearts keep
watch and ward. In the world where’r you send us,
May your kingdom come O Lord.

LET YOUR HEALING FLOW (Song Lyrics)

leaf in a stream

Let Your healing flow oh! Lord
Let Your healing flow
Like sweet fragranced honey, Lord
Let Your healing flow

Let the warmth find sickness, Lord
Let Your healing flow
Into every place of woe
Let Your healing flow

What a blessed picture Lord
Let Your healing flow
You enabled me to see
Let Your healing flow

Yes, the softness of Your touch
Let Your healing flow
Felt it through my body, Lord
Let Your healing flow

Like the gentleness of dew
Let Your healing flow
Into hidden caverns, Lord
Let Your healing flow

Caressing all in its path
Let Your healing flow
Bringing love, and peace, and joy
Let Your healing flow

I sense its beautiful song
Let Your healing flow
Oh! I’ve sensed it all along
Let Your healing flow

And though not manifested
Let Your healing flow
I can hear Love’s small, still voice
Let Your healing flow

You coat me with Your healing
You’ve let Your healing flow
I bathe within its beauty
You’ve let Your healing flow

And I am safe, protected
You’ve let Your healing flow
Embraced in honey’s river
You’ve healed me … this I know

HE LEADS ME SLOWLY …. To Be Sung Slowly

woman on cliffs gazing at mountains

He leads me slowly
He leads me slowly
Through this dark, dark vale
Through this dark, dark vale

Repeat
Oh!

I don’t know where He’s leading
I don’t know where He’s leading
Through this darkness
Through this darkness

But I know He is with me
Yes, I know He is with me
In this dark, dark place
In this dark, dark place

All I see are dark clouds
All I see are dark clouds
In this dark, dark vale
In this dark, dark vale

Clouds raining down my tears
Clouds raining down my tears
But I know He is with me
Yes, I know He is with me

He has my life, He has my heart
He has my life, He has my heart
In this dark, dark place
In this dark, dark place

He said He will never leave me
He said He will never forsake me
In this darkness
In this darkness

So I tread slowly forward
Not knowing what lays before me
I take His hand in mine
He takes my hand in His
He leads me slowly forward
Out of this dark, dark vale
Out of this dark, dark vale

And I know that breakthrough is coming
Yes, I know that breakthrough is coming
From this darkness
From this darkness
Because sweet child, His child
Your breakthrough it’s here
Your breakthrough is already here
Your breakthrough is already here

And the way is lined with a flower
Deep red, as only pure blood runs
I am healed and delivered
With salvation that He won

Oh! He led me out
From such unrelenting pain
Out of much hostility
Out of sinful shame
Out of anxious fear
Out of all my pride
Yes, Jesus, He led me
He was always by my side

THE SON WILL ALWAYS SHINE (A Song of Hope)

flowers in the sun

When days, when days
The dark clouds do hide my joy
Those days, those days
Are the ones I should most enjoy

Chorus
’Cause listen, just listen
Through grey skies or wearisome tears
The Son will always shine
And melt away those fears

When days, when days
The dark clouds make me question
Those days, those days
Are blessed with inspiration

Chorus
’Cause listen, just listen
Through grey skies or wearisome tears
The Son will always shine
And melt away those fears

When days, when days
The dark clouds make me sad
Those days, those days
In His time they’ll make me glad

Chorus
’Cause listen, just listen
Through grey skies or wearisome tears
The Son will always shine
And melt away those fears

When days, when days
Hidden light breaks through and shines
Those days, those days
On my heart His name He signs

Bridge
Oh! The Son will always shine
Through sweet blue skies or grey
So I’ll never feel overwhel-med
When I cry out to Him and say
I need You, I need You
My heart needs melting too!
I need You, I need You
Be my sun, oh! Son to stay

Chorus
So I listened, I listened
Through grey skies and wearisome tears
’Cause I knew the Son, He always shines
And melts away all fears

THE HEART OF THE FATHER (Song Lyrics)

Another inspired song (link to teaching below).

back of cat sitting by window curtains

Chorus
I see you there
Abandoned
I see you there
So scared
I care about you
I’ll come rescue you
Bring you into My family
And love you

I’m trying to hide myself
From all that’s swirling around
So much noise and temptation
No gentle comforting sound

I feel so very alone
I see nowhere I can go
To escape stares and fingers
That are pointing, saying no

I just want to be loved, safe
Away from this dark, dark place
Please someone, come and find me
I so need love’s warm embrace

Chorus
I see you there
Abandoned
I see you there
So scared
I care about you
I’ll come rescue you
Bring you into My family
And love you

I won’t pass by like others
Gaze upon you, then walk on
Oh! There’s a place of love kept
Kept just for you in My Son

Come home with Us, My darling
Come home for eternity
You’ll never be scared, frightened
‘Cause comfort abides in Me

I’ll take you into My arms
And I’ll never let you go
You’ll find freedom’s loving peace
And love you’ll finally know

Chorus
I see you there
Abandoned
I see you there
So scared
I care about you
I’ll come rescue you
Bring you into My family
And love you

Bridge
I’m so thankful He rescued me
Yes, others passed by
But me, they didn’t see
He came to where I was
He couldn’t take His eyes off me
He’s wanted me forever
And this child is now home and free

Chorus
I saw you there
Abandoned
I saw you there
So scared
I cared about you
I always will
You cried out, and I answered
Yes, I came and rescued you
And brought you into My family
‘Cause I loved, love loving you

RUN INTO THE ARMS OF THE FATHER (A Song of Hope in Times of Distress)

footprints in the sand

Chorus
Oh! Run into the arms of the Father
There’s nothing more you can do
Run into the arms of the Father
He’ll banish your fears so blue

When all around, it falls apart
When loved ones, friends misunderstand
When faith, it feels so far away
Push through, push through and take His hand

Chorus
Oh! Run into the arms of the Father
There’s nothing more you can do
Run into the arms of the Father
He’ll banish your fears so blue

The mountains and earth may crumble
The seas rear tempestuous head
The skies may darken so quickly
Filling you with oh! so much dread

Chorus
Oh! Run into the arms of the Father
There’s nothing more you can do
Run into the arms of the Father
He’ll banish your fears so blue

Some find comfort in worldly things
And for awhile all may seem well
Ask for clarity, truth revealed
Then you’ll be saved where others fell

Bridge
When everywhere you turn and see
Calamities and woe times three
Just look up, just look up and be
Wrapped in His sweet love and peace times three

Chorus
Oh! Run into the arms of the Father
There’s nothing more you can do
Run into the arms of the Father
He’ll banish your fears so blue

SAYING GOODBYE TO 2020

fireworks the festival new year's day

And as the year dwindles to time unknown
We sit and contemplate all we have known …

Throughout the year that has just passed us by
Think of friends we have lost, sweet loved ones we’ve watched die

Time does not stop and let us disembark from our life’s line
We may not have escaped pain, we see our age in decline …

But many have witnessed kindness, compassion and found much joy
Helping one another through the terrors out to destroy

Marriages, births, birthdays, anniversaries, our love on cards we explain
And the birth and death of our Saviour is remembered once again …

Yes, 2020 will soon be another diary’s memory
To all my dear blogging friends, may 2021 be blessed and forever cheery

God bless.

THE DOLLHOUSE (Song Lyrics)

These lyrics were inspired through listening to this precious lady Niki Weller’s latest message. A jewel midst the treasures shared. She also has an absolutely amazing healing testimony. I have included three links below to bless you x

Do you see yourself unworthy
Do you see yourself alone
Know that in the depths of sadness
Jesus is upon the throne

Do you see yourself abandoned
Do you see yourself unloved
Know that through invisible tears
You are safe in the Beloved

Chorus
My Father is making me a dollhouse
More beautiful than my dreams can dream
He loves me so much
He always has
And He’s handcrafting it just for me

Is your childhood a memory
Waiting for joy to begin
Family fun just passed you by
And you never quite fit in

I know that broken-heartedness
A child of ten, a new land
The emptiness that flowed through life
But praise God, His plans are grand

Chorus
My Father is making me a dollhouse
More beautiful than my dreams can dream
He loves me so much
He always has
And He’s handcrafting it just for me

Each new room reveals His banner
Which sings His beautiful song
I am accepted and wanted
And I know I now belong

You see this little child has grown
Learnt about His endless love
Discovered all He’s called me for
With eyes on treasures above

Chorus
My Father has made me a dollhouse
More beautiful than my dreams could dream
He loves me so much
He always will
Oh! He handcrafted it just for me
For me
He handcrafted it just for me

THAT HOLY NIGHT (Some More Christmas Song Lyrics)

Just because Christmas has passed for another year, we don’t forget Him, we don’t ever stop being thankful or being in awe x

Shepherd with Sheep

Let us be joyous
Come let us see
All that our Saviour
Promised to be

He came to give us beautiful sight
New melodies to sing
He opened doors that held us captive
And now sweet gifts we bring
And now sweet gifts we bring

’Cause our hearts, He healed
Our life, He sealed
When truth was revealed
Creation kneeled
Creation kneeled

Chorus
’Twas the night, that holy night
We’ve all be waiting for
’Twas the night, that holy night
The angels, Love adored
Love adored, Love adored
The angels, Love adored

Oh! Come let us praise
Heaven’s delight
Hymns of thanksgiving
Sing Holy Night

That holy night, so perfectly timed
The stars reflected love
Yes, Jesus was born, Immanuel
Immanuel means love
Immanuel means love

’Cause our hearts, He healed
Our life, He sealed
When truth was revealed
Creation kneeled
Creation kneeled

Chorus
’Twas the night, that holy night
We’ve all be waiting for
’Twas the night, that holy night
The Father’s love, restored
Love restored, love restored
The Father’s love, restored

’Twas the night
That holy night
