WHEN LOVE BREAKS THROUGH (Song Lyrics)

IMG_8616

When love breaks through, and mends a broken heart
It finds its home awaiting, prepared for a brand new start

Love and truth, they are settled
Firmly planted in your mind
But there’s a wall between them
Your mind, and the beats of life

And every day as you read
His beautiful living Word
Knowledge grows; but slowly fades
All gained is lost in the fog

Chorus
When love wins, and breaks right through
Love hearts crush and pierce the blue
Filling hidden recesses
Filling, and restoring you

There’s love, there’s peace, and there’s joy
Just bursting to be released
But something keeps the door closed
To heavenly gifts, so free

Trials of tears, and trials of woe
Bitterness, unforgiveness
Seek His Kingdom first, forgive
And love, it will then break through

Chorus
When love wins, and breaks right through
Love hearts crush and pierce the blue
Filling hidden recesses
Filling, and restoring you

Abundant love will pour forth
And tear that hard wall right down
Love will beat triumphantly
And mend all the broken pain

When love breaks through and mends a broken heart
It finds its home awaiting, prepared for a brand new start

When love breaks through

YOU WASH ME WHITER THAN THE WHITEST SNOW (Song Lyrics)

bird winter snow

You wash me whiter than the whitest snow
You lift me higher than the clouds can go
You mend my broken heart with love aglow
And this is when, my thankful tears, they flow

Washing me whiter, washing me whiter
I fall at Your feet, and then You reach down
With eyes full of tenderness, You tell me
I’m all Yours, placing upon me Your crown

Washing me whiter, washing me whiter
So now I’m clean, Your righteousness I wear
My filthy rags have been nailed to the cross
I live as Your child, so wanted, so fair

My heart can now sing in cleansed, purest tones
’Cause Jesus has opened the way back home
And access forever to our Father
I’m seen and purchased, through the spotless Lamb

You wash me whiter than the whitest snow
You lift me higher than the clouds can go
You mend my broken heart with love aglow
And this is when, my thankful tears, they flow

Isaiah 1:16-18(KJV)

16 Wash you, make you clean; put away the evil of your doings from before Mine eyes; cease to do evil;

17 Learn to do well; seek judgment, relieve the oppressed, judge the fatherless, plead for the widow.

18 Come now, and let us reason together, saith the Lord: though your sins be as scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they be red like crimson, they shall be as wool.

A Wound Too Deep

william wall painting oil on canvas

For many a day
Life is cushioned
Soft green grass
We are disillusioned

Travelling along
No hardships or sadness
We walk towards
Our dreams more or less

And then the road hardens
Slight problems appear
The road becomes rocky
And in comes the fear

What should have been gladness
And fun we are told
Suddenly we stumble
Our footsteps lose hold

Cracks and crevices
Dangerous terrain
We cannot move forward
Without any pain

The road is too dangerous
The gap is too wide
How will we reach our goal
Out of reach – the other side

The wound is too deep
We need help to go on
And then our dear Saviour
Sheds His blood, God’s Son

His blood fills the deepness
Heals the wound from within
And now we continue
Praise the Lord
To heavenly Canaan

For once again the road is soft
He holds our hand, leads the way
Brings us home
And on His heart
We now lay

It’s Raining His Tears

valentine8217s day water drops hearts vector

It’s raining
I hear His small, still voice
I’m crying for my nations
I’m crying, it’s My choice

I’m crying, you won’t listen
I’m crying, you’ve left My side
I’m crying, no one seems to care
Look, My arms are open wide

These tears are shed for many
The lost, the sick, those in pain
The rain, it is getting heavier
Don’t let My love, My love, wane

The rainbow has been hidden
These tears, I cry for you
I’m crying to cleanse all who are dying
I’m crying, let Me wash you anew

The falling drops, they lessen
But My tears will continue to fall
Fall until you grasp these words
Don’t hide your heart behind fear’s wall

Let these tears, let them take away
All that is holding you back
May they bring fresh love, peace and sweet joy
And in Me, fulfill all you lack

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

SNOW GLOBE HEART (Song Lyrics)

It’s been a while since I wrote any song lyrics … I hope you enjoy these!

realistic christmas snow globe with christmas gift in it vector

It’s Christmas time around the world
The snow is gently falling
Homes ring out, much jubilation
Young and old in harmony

And as the hour is counting down
Slowly eyes, they find their sleep
Trying hard to stay wide awake
Midst final preparation

Chorus
Oh! See the snow falling upon your life
When all is well, purity covers strife
Little snowflakes, making your heart landscape
A joy to behold, no need to escape

But within the frosty shadows
A heart refuses to shine
Not even in the excitement
Of the night, can warmth, it smile

’Cause a little child, a child’s heart
Grown one, lost in memory
Doesn’t matter how old the years
When hearts are cold, love is gone

Chorus
Oh! See the snow falling upon your life
When all is well, purity covers strife
Little snowflakes, making your heart landscape
A joy to behold, no need to escape

So be embraced by heaven’s Gift
Though found in times of shaking
Surround your life, your loved ones too
Forever all season’s hope

Bridge
May love find all that is lost
May joy receive Her King
May peace line each footstep
Throughout earth, may all hearts sing

Chorus
Oh! See the snow falling upon your life
When all is well, purity covers strife
Little snowflakes, making your heart landscape
A joy to behold, no need to escape

FINALLY HOME

cruise ship

Lost as a little girl of ten
Lost and a-wondering at sea
Unsure of what the future held
Unbeknownst He was holding me

Taken out of my family tree
Or at least that is how it felt
The same for years that came and went
Until before my Lord, I knelt

Never feeling like I fit in
At school, at home, in daily life
Living in memories now gone
It soon led to a world of strife

Who am I, where do I belong?
But unaware of these sad thoughts
They planned my days, shed tears at night
All the while, I was trapped and caught

Through many valleys, mountain climbs
Raging rivers and desert lands
This heart journeyed, not finding home
To plant my feet on rock, not sands

Praise God, I can now see the shore
In the distance, soft lights glowing
The rough journey is soon to end
I sense the relief of knowing

That with each beat of my child heart
Each breath that as a child I took
I never let go of being
That girl on the day my life shook

As on that ship, my life was tossed
For weeks and weeks so endlessly
As a daughter and wife, mother
I have still been waiting for me

To arrive at that safe harbor
With heart and emotions intact
Finally, they are soon to meet
Lost when life was once an extract

At last I can feel belonging
Or what it may feel like to be
Present in the present, not bound
And lost in false reality

And I can unpack those cases
That have been drifting out at sea
Unpack all of who I am now
Since then I’ve become a new me

The belongings that fill my heart
Will embrace love I’ve been given
And all that tried to cause me pain
Left in the depths, I’m forgiven

I’m still a child, a child of God
And my Father, He adores me
I may not cross the seas again
I’m safe, I’m here, He’s restored me

Oh! How I Love December

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

I wrote this last year; but it’s time to post again … With a few additions and subtractions and a year full of many difficult trials and wonderful blessings linking each moment together, I send this out with my love and appreciation for you all. Please take the time to look through my books and listen to the beautifully recorded songs below.

Oh! How I love December. It’s a bittersweet month though. There is just something about it. I feel more ‘me’. Is this because it is my birthday month? I don’t know. My dear late mother’s and brother’s birthdays come and go. My late grandmother’s also. Mine comes and goes. The memory of my brother’s death, English childhood Christmases. Snow. Innocent joy.

And then there’s Christmas … In remembrance of our dear Saviour’s birth. No man knows the date of His exact birth; but I’m sure it wasn’t in December. His birth, the promise of hope. The beautiful carols. The pretty lights. The smiles on faces. Family. Friends. Hope.

And … The Lord has enabled me to place a hardcopy of my two books on the shelves, ‘Sunrays and Lily Smiles’ and ‘When a Child Sings’ … here are the links if you’re interested. This will allow you to take a look inside. http://www.amazon.com/Sunrays-Lily-Smiles-Memories-Cottage-ebook/dp/B00R5PRN0I/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1448923703&sr=8-1&keywords=sunrays+and+lily+smiles

Anyway, as I said, I love December and it’s here, yay! (not that every moment, every hour, every day, every month … every breath, isn’t precious). Now where’s that WordPress falling snow feature :-)!

May This Prayer Entwine Your Family Tree

Family Tree Prayer

Dearest Heavenly Father,
I pray that the True Vine (Jesus) wrap around and protect our family tree.
Comfort us,
Feed us,
Support us,
Save us.
Lift us and place us beside streams of Living Water.
And may every leaf (Thy precious word) upon the True Vine hold sweet healings for each life in this tree.
May Your strength hold us amidst the storms of life.
May Your peace settle upon each decision we need to make.
May Your love flow in and through each heart.
Each battered heart.
Each hurting heart.
Each heart that doesn’t even know there is trouble.
Each heart that doesn’t know and acknowledge You.
Forgive us.
And may the fragrance of Your love envelop us.
May Thy joy and not the world’s joy fill us … sustain us.
And Your hope … keep us.
In the mighty Name of Jesus,
Amen.

My prayer for each family.
My family.

He Bottles Our Tears

He Bottles Our Tears

They cost us nothing; but cost Him everything

… … …

These are gifts from our Heavenly Father

Nothing we can do; but receive them with thanksgiving and obedience

Love … Forgiveness … Joy … Peace

Freedom … Eternal life … Death of old life

Redemption … Salvation

Mercy … Grace

Hope … Compassion

Repentance … Yes, even repentance

Faith … The precious wonder of this priceless gift

Daily blessings

Trials … The heat of the furnace … The hotter, the more it hurts, the more humble we become

Ready to serve

To love even more

Yes, everything is from God

Everything

Our lives are definitely in His hands

Surrendered to Jesus?  Praise God

May your love for Him intensify each and every day

Or are you struggling intensely with internal strife?

At the crossroads and you must move forth?

Choose life

Choose Jesus

The beautiful gateway … the open door … eternal freedom … eternal love

He is calling you today

Frightened of surrender?

Surrender is not giving yourself to a life of bondage

With Christianity, surrender is freedom

*       *       *       *       *       *       *

ARE YOU SUFFERING IN ANY WAY RIGHT NOW?

May God bless all who read this and may the Truth prevail in your life

May you rest in His perfect love for you

May you feel His compassion flow in and through you

May His great mercies manifest in your life today

May your wanderings from fear, hopelessness and anguish be gone

In Jesus Name.  Amen

*      *       *       *       *       *       *

Call out to Him.

He will answer every prayer lifted up … unable to speak … don’t know what to say?

He will give you the words

Maybe you can’t hear them; but they’re there and He can

Each prayer lifted up with genuine tears

Every tear tells a story

Maybe you cannot cry anymore for your tears have flooded your life for so long

He will hear each broken heart – for every broken heart cries unseen tears within

And every broken heart releases love with that pain

He knows

He will answer

He loves you

*       *       *       *       *       *       *

Jesus saith unto him, I am the Way, the Truth, and the Life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by Me.’

John 14:6 KJV
