Alone I Sit

pigeon

Upon the housetop, loneliness prevails
Understand I can’t, of coldness in death
Where is the love that once fulfilled
All of life’s dreams and promises said

Does this mean that I won’t be missed
Does this mean that talk is not meant
Compassion and true fellowship I desire
Yet emptiness of doubt surrounds me still

Oh! To be loved, as Christ first loved us
Within our family which we hold so dear
May the peacefulness of love prevail
Answer hopelessness and fill with joy

Shall the truth meet with our hearts
Comfort us in feelings, humbled thou art
Yes Jesus loves us, of that I am sure
May that be enough, eternally secure

He Meets Me

happy family father and son element vector

And He meets me where I’m at
Along the shoreline of each heartbeat
Seas roll in, He says, ‘No more’
‘Peace be still, feel My hand, not the heat’

And He meets me with each thought
Dispels every lie from perfect truth
Storms roll in, He says, ‘Don’t fear’
‘Let Me fill your mind with renewed youth’

And He meets me in each step
As I walk the path lit by His word
Sometimes, darkness closes in
He says, ‘Listen to the way you’ve heard’

And He meets me through my sight
Gives me beauty that’s too much to bear
And when I feel overwhelmed
He says, ‘’Tis for you, this love to wear’

And He meets me in each sound
Orchestral heights or softest quietness
A small, still voice can be heard
‘Through each trial, I’m always here to bless’

And He meets me in my heart
Breaking down the cold, mountainous wall
He says, ‘I love you, my child’
‘And I will answer you when you call’

Yes, He meets me everywhere
And I could go on and on and on
Through touch and smell
Through each word spoken
’Tis Him I lean upon

THIS IS YOUR BREAKTHROUGH CALLING (A Song of Deliverance)

This is Your Breakthrough Calling

There was a time, a long time
When you’d almost given up
The trials were overwhelming
As you drank of affliction’s cup
But I was there all along
And I’m forever with you now
And throughout it all
Through many tears, much pain
Heaven still was blessed
With love, praise and no disdain

Chorus
This is your breakthrough calling
I’m here at last, at last
There were so many obstacles in My way
But now all doubt and fear has passed

This answered prayer is for all
Who have been struggling so
When prayers seem like they’re silenced
When release, it just doesn’t show
Maybe as you’re reading this
And My Word is laid before you
Take heart My dear one
‘Cause help is on its way
Believe, believe and trust
Breakthrough will break through this day

Bridge
I wanted you to break through
Break through, break through, push through
And with My help, you were never alone
Together, rejoice, you’re through

Chorus
This is your breakthrough calling
I’m here at last, at last
There were so many obstacles in My way
But now all doubt and fear has passed

You’re through, you’re through
And My Name is glorified
You’re through, My child, you’re through
My love now seen and glorified

Life’s Thorns

Flowers 006

Every thorn along the pathway of life can either enable or disable us. It can either weaken our faith or strengthen our faith. We can either let it hurt us or we can use it as a step to becoming closer to the precious full bloom that God intended us to be.

AMIDST THE RAGING STORM (Song Lyrics)

sea thunder and lightning and highdefinition picture

When there seems to be no hope in close sight
When there seems to be no end to the night
When everywhere there’s only wrong not right
Then rescue is near, don’t give up the fight

Searching for peace amidst the raging storm
We draw close to our wonderful Saviour
For He is sleeping whilst we are praying
He will awaken in His sweet hour

Crushed beneath the threatening waves so dark
Floundering in confusion’s foamy froth
Remember our Father won’t lead one way
Change direction, then deliver His wrath

When there seems to be no hope in close sight
When there seems to be no end to the night
When everywhere there’s only wrong not right
Then rescue is near, don’t give up the fight

Reach up and grasp His hand of salvation
Bringing our hearts to the healing altar
Let go and let God, how often this need
It’s the only way to know who we are

Trust in the One who is Hope eternal
For ourselves and all whom we dearly love
For coming through those stormy seas
He’ll always set our feet safely above

When there seems to be no hope in close sight
When there seems to be no end to the night
When everywhere there’s only wrong not right
Then rescue is near, don’t give up the fight

Hope Always Blooms

Hope always blooms
When you can take a step no further
’Cause that’s the time when
The Lord steps in
And covers you with His wings of comfort

He lifts you with those wings
Above each and every trial
That’s when you can look down on them
And see them defeated by His power

SEATED IN THE HEAVENLIES … Song Lyrics or Poem

daffodil spring snow

Can you see the battle raging down below
Don’t you know your name is written upon it
Stay in peace, stay where you are and soon you’ll know
That in Christ Jesus you’ve already won it

Break free, break forth from the darkness that holds you
Enemy lies bear down like a heavy rod
Break free, break forth into healing, be brand new
A new creation in the sight of our God

Use the Sword of the Spirit, the Living Word
Don’t let the pure Truth idly cling to your side
Shout out fellow brother, sister and be heard
Evil be gone, “It is written”, you’re Christ’s bride

Yes, you’re seated in the heavenlies, praise Him
Praise Him for all endured, secured on the cross
You have the victory, so sing a new hymn
He died, rose triumphant, your life in His loss

Eventide

sunset sunrise beach

No matter how dark the moment grows
How many walk away
No matter if all you can see is you
Don’t ever say
It’s no use
I can’t go on
Just know
Draw from depths once unknown
Buried far within
And know that there is One
Who loves you

Then when night-time
The night-time of your life
Draws near
Physically, mentally, spiritually
You’ll be able to say
This is me
I’m the one
This is my story
I survived
And

Deep beneath the still hush of eventide
A head rests on the Saviour’s beating heart
Going forth in the realm of distant dreams
And to Him who keeps each breath apart

It’s my head
My Saviour’s heart

There’s peace at eventide
And the gentle blush of Christ’s bride
Will be revealed
