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

Today I repost this, lifting up in particular, all traumatized by the terrible fires in Australia, those who have lost loved ones, their homes, their furry friends, their possessions, their livestock, their livelihood, the tireless service men and women … May you be comforted and even though the winds and flames rage, may the peace of the living God overtake and quench the internal messes of fear, desperation, hopelessness. In Jesus precious Name. Amen.

I also dedicate this precious song to all who are trapped or feel like they are trapped in circumstances beyond their control. I think of the fires, 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

A CHRISTMAS MELODY (Song Lyrics)

christmas background sparkling decorated fir tree sketch

Have you ever stopped to wonder
This divine love, so pure in heart
Heaven-sent above asunder
Flowing from life, so torn apart

Pouring forth sweet adoration
Angels announce this mystery
A birth, Father’s jubilation
Knowing man could now be made free

Found in lowly manger’s holding
Bringing His way and truth and life
Causing hearts to break forth singing
Delivering from sin and strife

Oh what joy, the birth of Christ is
To all becoming sons of God
We lift praise to all that is His
All brought forth out of Jesse’s rod

Emmanuel, everlasting
From eternity past, You came
Oh! Fill us to overflowing
We’ll overcome, You overcame

Fill us with Holy Spirit love
Joy and peace and longsuffering
Gentleness, goodness, wings of dove
Faith, meekness, self-control leading

So think upon this priceless gift
This season of entwining hearts
May healing balm bind every rift
Salvation come, as He imparts

THE CHRISTMAS LOVE SONG

christmas decorations

O sweet Christmas love song
The most beautiful ever born
Your notes are sweeter than honey
With golden melody You adorn

You draw the lost hope out of darkness
You heal every broken heart
You seal each life with eternity
And mend all that’s torn apart

Can you feel new life, and faith birthing
Do you dream of being free
Can you hear the melodies echo
Have you found love’s remedy

Just listen to the Christmas love song
And let Christ’s joy be released
Break off the cold chains of hopelessness
Know that hopelessness has ceased

O This Christmas love song
This Christmas
Find yourself in Him
He was born
And your name was sung
Woven in angelic lullaby
Falling from heaven when His time was come

It’s the Christmas love song
The most beautiful ever sung
The notes are sweeter than honey
The chords bound before the world begun

BENEATH THE SILENT WAVES

DSCN0671

Beneath the silent waves
Of yonder distant hill
The wildness of the breeze
Cries listen, and be still

The echoes of new life
Fragrance softly falling
The melody of song
Reveal God, all knowing

Each breath breathes a heartbeat
An emptiness within
A breath captivated
Delivered from its sin

O Taste and see, the Lord
Is good, so many signs
And wonders, all around
Through darkness, He still shines

Beneath those silent waves
Can you hear Him calling
Through waves of circumstance
Trials bring you home, glowing

There is a River

bach creek river

There is a river of love and peace
Where the healing waters flow
And when you place your feet within
Sweet blessings you will know

There is a river of joy and hope
Where the healing waters flow
And when you place your feet within
Your symptoms, they will go

There is a river which runs forever
And as it flows it whispers your name
Oh! Please, come down to the water’s edge
Take a step forward and you’ll never be the same

BROKEN HEART, STOP RUNNING (Song Lyrics)

DSCN0083

From the beginning we have all been loved
But somewhere along the way
We’ve listened to distant lies echoing
Lies which have led us astray

Why is it so hard to believe the truth
Why is it so hard to say
I believe in You, oh Lord and Saviour
When we hear Your voice today

Chorus
Oh broken heart stop running
Running, going nowhere
Distance may separate the man
But distance always leads somewhere
You may think you are safe
You may think you are free
But eventually you’ll be found out
Hiding; not hidden, never free

Every heart that has been ever been broken
Broken, and in dark despair
Has a hidden and silent melody
Waiting to longingly share

Please leave the ninety-nine oh Lord, in love
Come find the wandering one
Lay him, lay her, upon Your strong shoulders
Close to the heart of God’s Son

Chorus
Oh broken heart stop running
Running, going nowhere
Distance may separate the man
But distance always leads somewhere
You may think you are safe
You may think you are free
But eventually you’ll be found out
Hiding; not hidden, never free

RIVERS OF MERCY (Song Lyrics)

fast flowing river

His rivers of mercy never run dry
His rivers of mercy, and I wonder why
Why He has chosen
This heart for His child
Why does He love me so

His rivers of mercy never run dry
His rivers of mercy, and I wonder why
Why He has saved me
Lovingly made me
Why does He love me so

His beautiful Word
Sings a melody
And all my life, will lead
And this I know
For His Word tells me so
And His Word is all that I need

O Jesus, O Jesus
Your rivers of mercy consumed
And this hidden bud
Once captive in thorns
Is free at last
Fragrance released

Broken hearts will be touched
Songs of joy enter in
Darkness, it will have to flee
And all because, our Father’s love
Is embraced in unfailing mercy

Your rivers of mercy never run dry
Your rivers of mercy, and I wonder why
Why You have chosen
This heart for Your child
Why do You love me so

Your rivers of mercy never run dry
Your rivers of mercy, and I wonder why
Why You have saved me
Lovingly made me
Why do You love me so

Rivers of mercy
Rivers of mercy
Flowing from Your throne
Rivers of mercy
Rivers of mercy
I will never be alone
Never be alone
Never be alone
Rivers of mercy

YOU MEAN MORE TO ME THAN MOTHER’S DAY (A Song for Anyone with a Sweet Mother’s Heart)

YOU MEAN MORE TO ME THAN MOTHERS DAY

O the sweetness of those words
You mean more to me than Mother’s Day
Touches deep, releases joy
Something only a dearest child could say

Chorus
Sometimes distance has its way
Sometimes others have their say
But still, my love survives in May
‘Cause you mean more to me than Mother’s Day
Yes, you mean more to me than Mother’s Day

Brings with them, sweet butterflies
Of fleeting memories from yesteryear
Interspersed with cherished love
Can sense their closeness, even if not near

Chorus
Sometimes distance has its way
Sometimes others have their say
But still, my love survives in May
‘Cause you mean more to me than Mother’s Day
Yes, you mean more to me than Mother’s Day

Brings a bouquet of sweet intent
And hugs that reach to eternity
Thankfulness for heaven’s gift
Preciousness with a face that’s so pretty

O may I feel your arms surround me
May I feel your breath upon me
May I feel your love towards me
Sweet child, sweet child, of mine

Chorus
Sometimes distance has its way
Sometimes others have their say
But still, my love survives in May
‘Cause you mean more to me than Mother’s Day
Yes, you mean more to me than Mother’s Day

AND NOW A PRAYER FOR ANYONE WITH A SWEET MOTHER’S HEART

YOU MEAN MORE TO ME THAN MOTHERS DAY (2)

Dearest Heavenly Father
I come before You to lift every Mother unto You
And even though Mother’s Day is a wordly affair
And every day should be Mother’s Day in a child’s heart
You are love
You know our need for love
So I lift all Mothers unto You
All who have never been Mothers
Yet have a Mothering heart
All who are with child at this very moment
But are on the verge of terminating that life
All who are with child at this very moment
But are fearful of losing that life
Due to complications, accidents, medications
All who have lost a child
All who have lost children
Whether miscarried
Stillborn
As an infant
A toddler
Child
Young teen
Teenager
Young adult
An adult
… to silence
All who have a Mothering heart
And through silent tears
Are unable to have children
But Lord
But with God
Nothing is impossible
All who are awaiting the news
Of a missing child
Desperate for news
Hoping, praying
That they will be returned
Safely into their nuturing arms
All who are unable to spend
Mother’s Day together
Due to distance
Sickness
Disagreements
Anger
Hurt
Pride
And any other Mother who due
To no fault of their own
Is just unable to share
This precious day
As is every day
Together
All Mothers who have lost their Mothers
As a child
And never knew them
As an adult
The grief is the same
Anyone who has lost their Mother
Those whose heart is breaking
Because their Mother is so sick
Fear worrying how they will cope without them
O Lord
O Lord
Please also bless those spending
Today together
May they be aware of the gift they have
May Your love abound
May Your love abound
Shed Your love abroad
May it enter deep within all hearts
Unto You Lord
Unto You Lord
Precious Lord
In Jesus Name I pray
Amen

I WILL CONQUER THIS MOUNTAIN (Song Lyrics)

eagle landing

Three steps forward, two steps back
I will not give up
I will not give up
One day I’ll reach my destiny
One day I’ll reach my destiny

Will I ever conquer
This mountain in front of me
The scenery keeps on changing
I think I’ve reached the top
Then something else
Is in front of me

There are days of pure joy
Welling up inside of me
And I keep moving in Your strength
’Cause it sure ain’t mine, no
This strength is Yours
Sweetly leading me

I will not give up
I will not give up

But there are days of tears
My heart reveals the old me
O Lord, please heal this hidden pain
Take all sorrow, all shame
All unbelief
This burden off me

I will not give up
I will not give up

You did not die in vain
All life’s sin was drained from me
Now I can take Your yoke Jesus
Yoke easy, burden light
And I can climb
As Your hand lifts me

O Yes, I will conquer
This mountain that threatens me
Because Jesus, You’re my Saviour
And this I know, I’m free
You’re by my side
You have rescued me

Three steps forward, one step back
I will not give up
I will not give up
One day I’ll reach my destiny
One day I’ll reach my destiny

I will not give up
I will not give up

Three steps forward, no steps back
I did not give up
I did not give up
This day I reached my destiny
This day I reached my destiny

Don’t ever give up
Don’t ever give up
