PUSHING THROUGH THE PAIN (Song Lyrics)

asian beauty

Chorus
Pushing through the pain, so weary
Pushing, feeling like you’re going nowhere
Pain’s tears are rolling, the only thing moving
Push through dear child
In God’s strength, you can

When someone you love isn’t with you
And vast oceans keep hearts apart
When wheels of pain gather momentum
You might feel hopeless; but look up

When a dream is not being fulfilled
And that hope, it has flown away
You’re not well enough to see it through
But it’s a new day, just look up

Pain can shatter vulnerable hearts
If not held together with love
Don’t let pain leave lasting legacies
Push through that sorrow, and look up

Chorus
Pushing through the pain, so weary
Pushing, feeling like you’re going nowhere
Pain’s tears are rolling, the only thing moving
Push through dear child
In God’s strength, you can

We all, in unexpected moments
Are trapped in emotional pain
Sometimes physical, spiritual too
Some totally immersed, look up

Pain hurts, buries deep beyond the core
It hides, and thinks no one’s watching
Then the notes of melancholy play
Isolating bonds, oh! look up

Frozen tears silence intensity
You cry till you can cry no more
But dear one, our Healer is so close
Find the strength to cry one more tear

Oh! Find the strength to cry one more tear

Chorus
Pushing through the pain, so weary
Pushing, feeling like you’re going nowhere
Pain’s tears are rolling, the only thing moving
Push through dear child
In God’s strength, you can

A MOTHER’S LOVE (Song Lyrics)

mother child help

Chorus
When the lamp of love is no longer
A central part of your home
When the beating heart of a mother
Has left this world too soon
That’s when for every tear that falls
Of a young boy, or young girl within
Sweetest memories form a new life poem
Allowing broken hearts to sing

’Cause when is ever the right time
A child, no matter their age
Will understand their mother’s heart
And how she lived out her days

The first time your eyes made contact
With eyes of abandoned love
Never sensing what lay ahead
Or the sleepless night-time hours

Beaming over the wobbly steps
Soft treasures of little hands
All the funny faces between
All the words forming inside

The scraped knees, the tears, and the smiles
Bunny rugs, favourite toys
Adventures beyond heart’s desire
Prepared for school days ahead

The projects, best friends, and parties
Homework, and then changing days
Features, they’re coming and going
Clingy fingers separate

Through the days, the sulks, and the trials
Who could you always run too
Dear mother’s heart ’twas always there
Floury apron, cookies, love

Chorus
When the lamp of love is no longer
A central part of your home
When the beating heart of a mother
Has left this world too soon
That’s when for every tear that falls
Of a young boy, or young girl within
Sweetest memories form a new life poem
Allowing broken hearts to sing

Then one day you’re out on your own
School’s finished, career may start
Or study, or marriage, or move
She’s still Mother Dear to you

Disagreement may come between
Two lives are visibly bound
Many days may pass in silence
To mother, you’re still her child

So all I can say in closing
From someone whose loss is great
It doesn’t matter the years since
Parting, it happens, it’s real

Love her while you can, just let go
Of pain, or unforgiveness
Forgive, restore any love lost
Your mother’s heart beats for you

Take her hand in yours, remember
All the times she helped you through
Keep love’s memory locked deep down
May thinking of her bring a smile

Though it might not have always been
Harmony on every side
Maternal love’s like a flower
Be the fragrance of her heart

Chorus
When the lamp of love is no longer
A central part of your home
When the beating heart of a mother
Has left this world too soon
That’s when for every tear that falls
Of a young boy, or young girl within
Sweetest memories form a new life poem
Allowing broken hearts to sing

YOU FOUND ME BY THE WELL OF DESPAIR … Kathleen and My New Song

plant growing in desert

Chorus
You found me by the well of despair
Alone and thirsty, You found me there
Oh! Jesus, You sought me out
You left heaven to find me
I thought every day would be the same
But You came, gently whispering my name

Sometimes You lovingly lead us
Away from all things that we know
Take us to places far away
You lead us, a new life to show

We think it’s for us, this leading
To lift us from adversity
But we reach the destination
And sense loss of security

And then You bring a hurting one
They meet us by the water’s edge
And all that You’ve ever shown us
Flows, and washes away pain’s hedge

Chorus
You found me by the well of despair
Alone and thirsty, You found me there
Oh! Jesus, You sought me out
You left heaven to find me
I thought every day would be the same
But You came, gently whispering my name

We cry oh! Lord, why is this so
We’re struggling, we need help as well
Now there’s more brokenness to heal
But that’s when You say, ‘All is well’

I’ve already lifted you out
Out of the dark well of despair
Your purging is done, you are free
’Tis for them that I bought you here

And I will come, deliver them
Bring forth life from the seeds you’ve sown
And in your sweet obedience
Richer days, I will walk you home

Chorus
You found me by the well of despair
Alone and thirsty, You found me there
Oh! Jesus, You sought me out
You left heaven to find me
I thought every day would be the same
But You came, gently whispering my name

WHEN EYES ARE OPENED (Song Lyrics)

baby looking

When you come to a place in your life
And you’re not sure where you have been
When so much clutter, it surrounds you
Can seem more than you’ve ever seen
Look up, and let the cleansing begin
Then they’ll be sweet harmony in Him
Sweet harmony in Him

Chorus
When eyes are opened
And dawn dusk fog, it lifts
When clarity finds its moment
And life, the Lord, He sifts
Don’t fight it, don’t hide
’Cause new light in many colours
Soon ’twill clear the way
The truth, the life, the way

Some say that this time will never pass
That gloomy skies will always reign
But ’tis also said, stars twinkle best
Darkest night, heaven’s window pane
Look up, and let the cleansing begin
Then they’ll be sweet harmony in Him
Sweet harmony in Him

Chorus
When eyes are opened
And dawn dusk fog, it lifts
When clarity finds its moment
And life, the Lord, He sifts
Don’t fight it, don’t hide
’Cause new light in many colours
Soon ’twill clear the way
The truth, the life, the way

Time to let go, take the hand of love
He won’t let go, leave or forsake
Jesus will lead you through storms, through strife
Know you’re wanted, not a mistake
Look up, and let the cleansing begin
Then they’ll be sweet harmony in Him
Sweet harmony in Him

Chorus
When eyes are opened
And dawn dusk fog, it lifts
When clarity finds its moment
And life, the Lord, He sifts
Don’t fight it, don’t hide
’Cause new light in many colours
Soon ’twill clear the way
The truth, the life, the way

Look up, and let the cleansing begin
Then they’ll be sweet harmony in Him
Sweet harmony in Him

LOVE IS YOUR REWARD (Song Lyrics)

cereals field ripe
Chorus
Acknowledge, know and praise Him
Trust, believe, love, give and serve
Search deep, and love for love’s sake
Knowing love is your reward
Love is your reward

When the cross lifts you
In Christ all things are possible
When the cross lifts you
All things become so wonderful

Let the cross lift you
Doesn’t matter your first vision
The cross of Jesus
Grows more beautiful each season

Through tears of trial
Life may seem so wounded, and blurred
No heart denial
Is strong enough to be unheard

Lift your weary arms
Reach up, embrace Him, and the cross
Feel sweet healing balms
Exchange life for every sad loss

And love will flow down
Love’s eyes will meet, and meld with yours
All pain, sorrow drown
Two hearts loved, bound for heaven’s shores

Chorus
Acknowledge, know and praise Him
Trust, believe, love, give and serve
Search deep, and love for love’s sake
Knowing love is your reward
Love is your reward

YOU HAVE A FIRM FOUNDATION (Song Lyrics)

lamb looking into camera

You have a firm foundation, and wings under which to hide
May My love always hold you, and in Me may you abide

Sweet child of God, the walk may not be easy
And at times, you may feel like you are beaten
Brokenhearted one, do not lose sight of hope
No matter the stormy waves that do threaten

Come, be surrounded, by everlasting arms
Don’t ever doubt why it would, or should be so
Believe that your precious name is included
Lift weary feet, take My open hand, and go

You have a firm foundation, and wings under which to hide
May My love always hold you, and in Me may you abide

Come unto Me, You say. Come, let me heal you
If strength has gone, as a lamb, I’ll carry you
Fear must leave, My perfect love will cast it out
Old will be your tomorrow, today is new

Exchanging burdens, wiping tears from your face
The gift of repentance, found deep in your heart
With forever life, the strength to carry on
Melts with eternal love, given from the start

You have a firm foundation, and wings under which to hide
May My love always hold you, and in Me may you abide

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

JESUS HAS MY DESTINY (Song Lyrics)

red valentine heart on dot background vector image

I have all things I need in me
All I was created to be
Nothing lacking and this I see
’Cause Jesus has my destiny

Yes Jesus has my destiny
He’s paid the price and set me free
Love forever, He’s captured me
And through cleansed eyes, I now can see

Yes through cleansed eyes, I now can see
How Jesus paid the penalty
Once I played disobediently
On life’s road, it disgusted me

On life’s road, it disgusted me
How I could live so carelessly
Praise God, He nailed it to the tree
Triumphantly, at Calvary

Triumphantly, at Calvary
My old life has abandoned me
Now living life has flooded me
’Cause Jesus has my destiny

Yes Jesus has my destiny
My destiny, my destiny
Yes Jesus came to rescue me
With all heaven’s sovereignty

I have all things I need in me
All I was created to be
Nothing lacking and this I see
’Cause Jesus has my destiny

FACING THE RED SEA IN MY LIFE

vector waves waves

Oh Father, I’ve been here so many times before
I’ve been led in Your presence, right up to the shore
But then I’d turn around, see the foe in my sight
Forgive me, fear, it takes over, hope, it takes flight

This time I’ve decided, that enough is enough
It’s Your strength from now on, I can say makes me tough
Through many prayers coaxed out from the depths of my heart
I’ll march right through this safe way in love You did part

I will leave the chains of what’s comfortable behind
I’ll try not look back, look to Jesus, life I’ll find
For there’s nothing I can do to make it seem right
When I only have me, me, me in my own sight

Yes, I’ve seen the sweet promises laid out before
But fleshy desires did pull me to the world’s store
Of things that could never complete this brokenness
I’m learning, only God’s love can heal this distress

Maybe when I’ve walked through the shallows in times past
Thinking I’ve made it, I made it, I’m whole at last
That pride in its disguise has led me to believe
I’ve no further to go, there’s nothing left to leave

Thank you for showing me, there are still hidden hurts
There are wilderness days, and more trails through deserts
I receive Lord, all you have prepared for my life
In Your care, I press forward, to lands of no strife

The shadow of the valley of death, surrounds me
I step into Your presence, with each step, I see
That really those comforts that I trusted upon
Kept me locked in fear, so I couldn’t trust Your Son

Imagined, or very real trials as I go forth
Pale in comparison, mercy and grace lead north
As the fruit of the Spirit becomes my life’s aim
Letting go, letting God, I’ll never be the same

I’M WAITING BY THE POOL OF HEALING (Song Lyrics)

Dedicated to all who need a touch of pure love and healing from the only One who can truly heal. The Healer Himself. Our heavenly Father, in the beautiful name of Jesus, and by the power of the Holy Spirit …

blue water drops

Chorus
I’m waiting by the pool of healing
Waiting for someone to lift me in
Watching others, they go before me
They are healed and I’m waiting still; but
In my greatest need as the tears fall
Jesus can heal before I go in

So many years I’ve waited
Blindly trying many paths
Always hoping that it would be my turn
But alas, others had the joys and laughs

Day after day after day
Month after month after year
Wallowing in much concealed self-pity
Kept in bondage by hidden lies and fear

Feeling disheartened and sad
Wondering how to go on
Able to read of His grace and mercy
But still unable to sing my heart’s song

Chorus
I’m waiting by the pool of healing
Waiting for someone to lift me in
Watching others, they go before me
They are healed and I’m waiting still; but
In my greatest need as the tears fall
Jesus can heal before I go in

But then one day the light shone
Shone though it never had dimmed
The light was always upon His sweet Word
And now my heart saw what my eyes had skimmed

I went to the healing pool
Again nothing had it changed
But there for the first time I met Jesus
Who’d come searching for me where I now laid

And as He said to this child
Child, do you want to be well
I answered and said, I’m listening dear Lord
Only You can lift from this place I fell

My heart listened
My eyes glistened
My Saviour lent down in love
I’m here for you now
And I’ve always been
I’ve just waited for you to look above

Rise, take up your bed and walk
And in His strength I could do
Something that years had prevented me from
Rising up, going forth into things new

Chorus
Oh! I waited by the pool of healing
Waited for someone to lift me in
Watched others, they went before me
They were healed and I no longer wait; ’cause
In my greatest need as the tears fell
Jesus healed me before I went in
