LOOKING THROUGH THE STORM (Song Lyrics)

bench

Just a little while longer
And the grey seas will turn blue
The swirling waters will subside
And you’ll be made brand new

Don’t look behind you, My child
Don’t strain eyes to look ahead
Ride out the present’s wild moments
In strength of all I’ve said

And you’ll find rainbows hiding
Waiting sweetly just for you
When the shadows of yesterday
Are scattered through and through

Chorus
Looking through the storm
I see the sun is shining
The clouds they hurry past
God’s radiance is beaming

Can’t you see He’s reaching out for you
He’s reaching out for you

Don’t think your life’s forgotten
Don’t listen to stale, old lies
You can’t run, and hide forever
Cherishing those goodbyes

Try and surrender your heart
Let go of hurts and regrets
Know you are so loved and wanted
And He, never forgets

So come bow down before Him
He’ll lead your heart safely home
Father doesn’t like long goodbyes
Embrace the love He’s shown

Chorus
Looking through the storm
I see the sun is shining
The clouds they hurry past
God’s radiance is beaming

Can’t you see He’s reaching out for you
He’s reaching out for you

He’s reaching out for you

I’LL NEVER BE ALONE AGAIN (A Song of Hope and Love and Peace) … My Rendition

I'LL NEVER BE ALONE AGAIN

Chorus
My love, my love
You captivated my heart
You drew from above
Shone light in my pain
And whispered, My child, My child
You never need to fear again
You’ll never be alone again

Oh! Lord are You there?
Oh! Lord do You care?
I can’t see You
How can I possibly find You
If my eyes are closed and looking elsewhere?

Chorus
My love, my love
You captivated my heart
You drew from above
Shone light in my pain
And whispered, My child, My child
You never need to fear again
You’ll never be alone again

Oh! Lord I need help
Oh! Lord I need help
I can’t hear You
How can I possibly know You
When my ears are blocked with the world’s care?

Chorus
My love, my love
You captivated my heart
You drew from above
Shone light in my pain
And whispered, My child, My child
You never need to fear again
You’ll never be alone again

Oh! Lord where are you?
Oh! Lord here I am
I can’t feel You
How can I possibly trust You
When my heart is so cold and drawn elsewhere?

Chorus
My love, my love
You captivated my heart
You drew from above
Shone light in my pain
And whispered, My child, My child
You never need to fear again
You’ll never be alone again

Oh! Lord I do hurt
Oh! Lord I’m afraid
No fragrance abounds
How can I possibly sense You
When each breath is clothed in darkness’s fear?

Bridge
Blue emotions unveiled before me
Tears clear a way for the peace of Your steps
Now I know that my Saviour adores me
And forever I’m wonderfully kept

Chorus
My love, my love
You captivated my heart
You drew from above
Shone light in my pain
And I whispered, dear Lord
I will never fear again
I’ll never be alone again
No, I’ll never be alone again

CHRISTMAS JOY IS HERE TO STAY (A Song of Promise)

christmas tree 05 vector

Chorus
Just because the day is over
Just because the tree is down
Don’t let the sparkling lights grow dimmer
’Cause Christmas joy is here to stay

Why is it only one day a year
That Christ is given a place in your home
A place round your fireplace
As you smile at the presents
But don’t feel His presence the rest of the year?

Chorus
Just because the day is over
Just because the tree is down
Don’t let the sparkling lights grow dimmer
’Cause Christmas joy is here to stay

Why is it only one day a year
That Christ is given a place in your home
A small place in your heart
As you sing of His sweet Name
A sweet Name not heard through the rest of the year?

Chorus
Just because the day is over
Just because the tree is down
Don’t let the sparkling lights grow dimmer
’Cause Christmas joy is here to stay

Why is it only one day a year
That Christ is given a place in your home
A place round your table
As you feed on too many things
And avoid heavenly Bread the rest of the year?

Bridge
Oh! He will always be here
The Tree of Life He offers you
The Light of heaven will ever shine forth
The Joy of heaven fills each day anew

Chorus
Just because the day is over
Just because the tree is down
Don’t let the sparkling lights grow dimmer
’Cause Christmas joy is here to stay

MY LOVE STORY FOR YOU (Song Lyrics)

cute kids playing in zoo a baby girl sitting on giraffe vector

Don’t you know that before you were, I knew you
Don’t you know that I heard your very first cry
Your name was already etched in My story
And the days of your life, before Me did fly

I wove you with unfailing cords of My love
And whispered, you are special and meant to be
Before you left heaven’s protective dark pool
I poured in strength and the will to live, freely

Chorus
I was marred beyond recognition
I was marred with the deep stripes of sin
At the cross I died so you could live
And your lost heart for My Father, win

Look around at the beauty that surrounds you
Know that you’re beautiful, so beautiful too
The mirror and others may say otherwise
But they don’t understand your heart like I do

Don’t ever think you’re just passing through this land
Merrily, merrily, peace, peace and more peace
And one day ‘twill be over, yes finally
Because soon there will come a time of release

Chorus
I was marred beyond recognition
I was marred with the deep stripes of sin
At the cross I died so you could live
And your lost heart for My Father, win

Here is My love story, I wrote just for you
Listen closely to the words, let them enter
They are filled with My pure love everlasting
Let them enter, they will feed, clothe and shelter

And as you read and wonder where is the love
There’s only mention of cruel death on the cross
Remember I formed you, brought you forth with love
Through the cross, there’s new life for you in My loss

Chorus
I was marred beyond recognition
I was marred with the deep stripes of sin
At the cross I died so you could live
And your lost heart for My Father, win

LET LOVE LOVE YOU (Song Lyrics)

Flora Love Shape

What to do with a heart that’s been broken
What to do when no love has been spoken
Tell yourself, it’s okay, yes, it’s okay
Doesn’t matter what they do or don’t say
’Cause I love me, and I know I am loved
I’m loved by my Father and He is love

He is love, He is love, and none can match
His beauty, His love, and no-one, nothing
Can tear us apart, I’m sewn right into
The depths of His heart, the depths of His heart
I won’t listen to negativity
I’ll go out with joy, peace will lead me forth

Whenever the doubts, the pains they threaten
I’ll squeeze His hand tighter, woes will lessen
I’ll know and feel His everlasting love
Embrace, guide me, encourage and love me
I’ll hear Him whisper, keep loving yourself
With the love I’ve given you, and My love
Will flow sweetly from you unto others

Yes, My love will heal wherever it goes
I’ll send it to hearts that the world ignores
I’ll flood lives with hope and chase out despair
I’ll dry falling tears and fill with laughter
I’ll strengthen the weak, implant My peace; but
You must be willing in loving yourself
To know your heart’s healed … Let the healing flow

Let Love love you

Just Be Still

hd pictures of beautiful flowers 03

Just be
Just be
Just be still
And let the Lord’s strength
Let the Lord’s love
Let the Lord’s truth
Let the Lord’s joy
Let the Lord’s peace
Let the Lord’s mercy
Let the Lord’s grace
Let the Lord shine upon you

For He will strengthen you
He will love you
He does love you
He will fill you with all truth
He will make your days of darkness lighter
And knowing He will never leave or forsake you
Will fill you with internal joy
He will flood you with His peace
Not as the world gives
But with peace only the depths of your heart can explain
His mercy
His grace
No words can embrace

Just be still
Let the Lord shine upon you

ETERNAL LOVE (A Song of Love)

Abstract Romantic Background with Hearts

Chorus
Eternal love
Eternal love
From the heart
Of our heavenly Father
He cannot say
Anymore than He’s done
Loving us
From the depths of heaven’s heart
It broke His heart
We broke His heart
But He gave us His beautiful Son

Listen, He calls out your name
Yes, place your name in this line
He loves you and wants to call
You daughter, son, child so fine

Are you lonely, He’s waiting
Are you grieving, He waits
Don’t give up on life’s hope ’cause
Hope springs forth from heaven’s gates

Chorus
Eternal love
Eternal love
From the heart
Of our heavenly Father
He cannot say
Anymore than He’s done
Loving us
From the depths of heaven’s heart
It broke His heart
We broke His heart
But He gave us His beautiful Son

Please don’t let go, don’t let go
You are here for a reason
You may not see it, feel it
Sometimes pain lasts a season

Sometimes hurt lasts a season
And at times you have no strength
To see the hope that is yours
Or see forward past arm’s length

Chorus
Eternal love
Eternal love
From the heart
Of our heavenly Father
He cannot say
Anymore than He’s done
Loving us
From the depths of heaven’s heart
It broke His heart
We broke His heart
But He gave us His beautiful Son

He loves you now, as you are
Right where you are, it’s okay
Don’t listen to confusion
Please don’t wait another day

Oh! I hope you find this love
And I hope you find this peace
From our heavenly Father
Love and peace and joy’s release

Bridge
Eternal love
Eternal love
Your choice won’t last forever
But eternal love will
Eternal love will
Let Him, oh! let Him
Your broken heart
Heal and fill
Heal and fill

Chorus
Eternal love
Eternal love
From the heart
Of our heavenly Father
He cannot say
Anymore than He’s done
Loving us
From the depths of heaven’s heart
It broke His heart
We broke His heart
But He gave us His beautiful Son

Are You Joyful Or Hurting This Mother’s Day?

I posted this two years ago … always relevant so have posted again today.

Boy with Flower for Mom

Wishing all Mother’s a very blessed day.

Girl with Flower for Mom

Thanking the Lord for the gift of our Mothers.

For their love.

Nuturing.

Presence.

Presents.

Understanding.

Tolerance.

Discipline.

Advice.

Willingness to listen.

Perception.

Hopes and dreams for us.

Encouragement.

Comfort.

Trust.

And for those who are truly blessed … their prayers.

Their ‘just being Mum’ and being there.

And I could go on and on and on.

But I wish to lift prayers for those who …

Sad Little BoySad Girl

Never knew their Mother.

Never felt loved by her.

Never felt they could tell her secrets.

Never felt safe in her presence.

Never felt her arms wrapped lovingly, protectively around them.

Never felt cherished.

Never felt secure.

Never felt trusted.

And not forgetting those who have lost their Mothers.

Or whose Mothers are very ill.

Or overseas.

Or out of touch.

And I could go on and on and on …

Boy Pushing Wheelbarrow of HeartsGirl Pushing Wheelbarrow of Hearts

May the Lord wrap you in His arms and give you all the love, peace and joy that you so desperately need and continue to search for.

I will praise thee; for I am fearfully and wonderfully made: marvellous are Thy works; and that my soul knoweth right well.

 My substance was not hid from Thee, when I was made in secret, and curiously wrought in the lowest parts of the earth.

 Thine eyes did see my substance, yet being unperfect; and in thy book all my members were written, which in continuance were fashioned, when as yet there was none of them.

 How precious also are Thy thoughts unto me, O God! how great is the sum of them!

 If I should count them, they are more in number than the sand: when I awake, I am still with Thee.’  Psalm 139:14-18 KJV

May there be much joy and forgiveness this day and from this day forth.

Cry. Forgive. God loves you.

Children, there are Mothers desperately waiting for your call.

Mothers, there are daughters desperately waiting for your call.

Mothers, there are sons desperately waiting for your call.

‘For with God nothing shall be impossible.’  Luke 1:37 KJV

… I MISS YOU SO MUCH MUM …
