MAY GOD MEET EVERY PLACE

red peach heart vector

May God meet every place
That your heart calls out for
Calls out for, calls out for
Let God meet every place
Let God

Nothing too big, nothing so small
He cares for one, He cares for all

Come see the place where the Lord lay
He’s not there, only fragrance remains
As your heart calls out, He’s listening
And waiting to loose prison’s chains

May God meet every place that your heart calls out for
May He whisper His love, may it reflect, adore
Every place that’s hidden, you think is out of sight
Every tear that’s falling, and every guilty plight
Every time you’ve cried out into the darkest night
You know He has promised onto you to shine light
Don’t give up, He’s alive, has keys to heaven’s store
And will mercifully, love, release on you more

Come see the place where the Lord lay
He’s not there, only fragrance remains
As your heart calls out, He’s listening
And waiting to loose prison’s chains

Nothing too big, nothing so small
He cares for one, He cares for all

May God meet every place
That your heart calls out for
Calls out for, calls out for
Let God meet every place
Oh! Won’t you let Him oh!
Bring joy upon your face

I LEFT MY HEART BEHIND (Song Lyrics)

colorful roses bouquest vector

All the years we’ve been together
I’ve been unable to love you
Love you as I truly should have
Love as only a loved heart can
Hard to do when it’s bound in time
Fighting hard against God’s best plan

Chorus
I’m so very sorry
I left my heart behind
I left it in the past
Each beat left to unwind
But this heart is thawing
Life’s sunshine spreads its rays
Each beat can now rejoice
Safe in His healed ways

Each time it hurt and joy suppressed
When those memories came to haunt
I’d hide so very deep inside
Not caring for who I now am
So when love, it came a-calling
It brought me forth as God’s own lamb

Chorus
I’m so very sorry
I left my heart behind
I left it in the past
Each beat left to unwind
But this heart is thawing
Life’s sunshine spreads its rays
Each beat can now rejoice
Safe in His healed ways

Tears, they can no longer threaten
To wash and diminish the pain
My new heart can now receive yours
Don’t emotionally pull away
Our two hearts bound eternally
’Cause this love’s heart is here to stay

Chorus
I’m so very sorry
I left my heart behind
I left it in the past
Each beat left to unwind
But this heart is thawing
Life’s sunshine spreads its rays
Each beat can now rejoice
Safe in His healed ways

THE STORY OF LOVE (A Song of Adoration)

The Story of Love

Love unlocked pretends to smile
And all the world, it passes by
People never see the pain
Etched deep within each silent sigh

Chorus
The story of love
‘Tis Love loving me
‘Tis something forever
‘Cause love cradles me
Oh! His love cradles me

When love, it rises and breaks free
Captures the moments of past history
It shares joyful pain and misery
And draws Him closer, closer to me

Chorus
The story of love
‘Tis Love loving me
‘Tis something forever
‘Cause love cradles me
Oh! His love cradles me

That’s when shadows of the rainbow hide
A heart intent on keeping love inside
But love breaks free, into arms open wide
And shines eternal glory on a heavenly Bride

Chorus
The story of love
‘Tis Love loving me
‘Tis something forever
‘Cause love cradles me
Oh! His love cradles me

Stones of Emptiness

rocky heart
For every stone of emptiness
That’s been placed within your heart
May pearls of love replace them
May joy mend all that’s torn apart

For every confusing moment
When your mind feels null and void
May songs sing their melody
May peace’s sweet notes fill all destroyed

For every time of painful loss
Where each breath is hard to breathe
May unconditional hope
Bind life to your past’s sorrow-wreath

For every tear stained memory
Traumas enclosed in sadness
With compassion I give you
A bouquet of roses’ gladness

Inspired by Isaiah 34:11c “ … and he shall stretch out upon it the line of confusion, and the stones of emptiness”; Genesis 1:2a “And the earth was without form, and void …” and God’s deep love for us, not wanting us to hurt.

I’M SO THANKFUL

free vector always give thanks happy thanksgiving invitation card

Good morning Father, Jesus, Holy Spirit
It’s a beautiful, beautiful day
And when I survey Your wondrous creation
I’ll never run out of things to say

I’m so thankful that You first loved me
I’m so thankful You opened my eyes and caused me to see
I’m so thankful you’re healing my broken heart
I’m so thankful Lord, You’re restoring me

Each morning as dawn’s light breaks forth with new song
Whether grey skies forebode or sweet blush
I know as I step in tune with Your leading
Storms may come; but with You they will hush

I’m so thankful that You first loved me
I’m so thankful You opened my eyes and caused me to see
I’m so thankful you’re healing my broken heart
I’m so thankful Lord, You’re restoring me

And because You first loved me, I can love You
Myself and others too, Your command
See my living Saviour in Thy precious Word
And with healed heart, feel Your loving hand

Thankful Lord, I’m so thankful
Your love reaches to my very depths
Fills me with expectation
Dispelling every fear
Oh! Lord I’m forever grateful
You have promised to be near
And so I step into this brand new day
Lifting my voice with joyous cheer

MY HEART BEATS A PERFECT MELODY (Song Lyrics)

balloon 01 hd picture

Merciful God, You are my Father
To You and You alone, my hands are raised
In awe my mouth, it utters sweet praises
I fall into Your waiting heart of love

Chorus
Oh! Oh! Oh!
My heart beats a perfect melody
Orchestrated from love’s foundation
The foundation of the greatest love
Bound into each breath of creation

Merciful God, Your beloved Son came
To heal every broken heart, even mine
Eyes He opened, prisons no more captive
I fall into this knowledge of Your love

Chorus
Oh! Oh! Oh!
My heart beats a perfect melody
Orchestrated from love’s foundation
The foundation of the greatest love
Bound into each breath of creation

Merciful God, Your Spirit brings comfort
And I, Your child, feel the Shepherd’s safe arms
As He enlightens my life’s precious path
I fall into the presence of Your love

Chorus
Oh! Oh! Oh!
My heart beats a perfect melody
Orchestrated from love’s foundation
The foundation of the greatest love
Bound into each breath of creation

I’M READY FOR A MAKEOVER (Song Lyrics)

vector stylish wallpaper home living room sofa
Chorus
So I’m ready for a makeover, Lord
The lining of my heart is pretty tired
Please embroider Your word upon its wall
And may faith, hope and love be rewired

Spending too much time away from You
With too many empty thoughts
Filling my time with things of no worth
Now my life is out of sorts

The carpet of my long wanderings
Have worn feeble footsteps in
Took me places where I shouldn’t go
And right back into the arms of sin

Chorus
So I’m ready for a makeover, Lord
The lining of my heart is pretty tired
Please embroider Your word upon its wall
And may faith, hope and love be rewired

The old curtains that have tried to hide
Anything wrong in Your eyes
Things that I have tried to justify
Things that just cover up lies

The paintings despicting long lost scenes
Of life daily fleeting by
Show my emotions long held captive
On display, hung out to dry

Chorus
So I’m ready for a makeover, Lord
The lining of my heart is pretty tired
Please embroider Your word upon its wall
And may faith, hope and love be rewired

The couch once full of so much comfort
Floral hues everywhere
Your word rejoiced and filling each need
Now my poor mind is threadbare

Bridge
Recover me
Recover me
Recover me with Your love
Recover me with Your promises
Recover me with Love

Chorus
I thank You Lord, You’ve now made me over
My whole heart, it’s replastered and new
You embroidered Yourself upon its wall
And faith, hope and love are embraced, it’s true

Release the Joy

Happy Children Jumping
Release the joy
Release the love
Release the memories
From above
Tear down the wall
Repair the breach
Tear down the wall
And into my heart, reach
Take out sadness
Take out grief
Take out oppression
And unbelief
Tear down the wall
Oh! Lord my God
Tear down the wall
And I know You will
Catch me if I fall
Fall when emotions
Come tumbling out
Too much joy
Flooding my soul
But never too much
Never too much
On which to lay my goal
Of loving You
No matter what
May love, peace and joy
Oh! May love, peace and joy
Reflect the golden highlights
Deep down into my heart
Reflect the golden highlights
Of my sweet Father’s love

The Sunshine Poem

Tears of SunshineSunshine upon a broken heart
Sunshine when life’s been torn apart
Sunshine leaves behind painfully sweet tears
Sunshine warms and melts the fears
Sunshine oh! sweet sunshine sings
Sunshine fills the birdies’ wings
Sunshine strengthens and embraces
Sunshine reflects His love on faces
Sunshine sends glorious rays of hope
Sunshine allows one in sorrow to cope
Sunshine floods and spreads the news
Sunshine dissipates the endless blues
Sunshine radiates the reflection of rainbows
Sunshine a beam of light on which flows
Sunshine yes the Son shines and lets everyone know
Sunshine from above filters mercy aglow
Sunshine oh! let the Son shine
Sunshine oh! let the Son shine
And may the moonbeams of your dark night
Illuminate the sunshine in your daylight
