A PERSONAL QUESTION AND HOPEFUL RESPONSE

The Freedom Bird

Will it be
That I
Will be
Left Behind
In life’s shadow
Where birds
No longer sing
And the breeze
Brings no refreshment
Where darkness
Only reigns
And light
No longer penetrates
Where loved ones’ voices
Are no longer heard
I’m alone
Alone and trapped
The door has closed
The heat
Intensifies
No escape
Lord, please
Help me
I don’t want
To be labelled
Labelled with a barcode
Where my price
Is visible to all who see
Please open the door
One last time
Set me free
’Tis only
The price
You paid
That I want
All to see

John 3:16
For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in Him should not perish, but have everlasting life.

Matthew 11:28
Come unto Me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.

H … O … P … E

May you reach forth through every struggle, through the darkness, open your heart and receive God’s love …

He loves you as no one else can and is waiting for you to let go of all that hinders your relationship with Him.

There is nothing that you have ever said or done that He won’t forgive. It doesn’t matter how badly you think of yourself or how badly you think others think of you that you cannot receive His forgiveness.

He has enough love for everyone.

He is waiting for you. He wants to dry your tears and heal your hurts.

Let Him.

 

“For God so loved the world, that He gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in Him should not perish, but have everlasting life.” John 3:16

LEAD ME THROUGH THE STORM (A Song for When Life is Overwhelming)

Lead Me Through the StormWhen clouds are forming overhead
When doubts arise inside your head
Just look
Look
Look to the One who sees
Loneliness, hopelessness
In each pulse of your breaking heart
Each pulse of your breaking, broken heart
And hears each mournful plea

Take this heart
And make it tender
Lead me through the storm
Take this heart
And I’ll surrender
New life, new love in me form

When the clouds have borne their raindrops
When the doubts, the tears have stopped
You looked
Looked
Looked to the One who saw
Cradled and healed
Each pulse of love
Each pulse of love
In each beat, each beat and more

Chorus
Lord, You heard and answered my plea
Then gave more
Yes, You heard and answered each plea
And gave so much more
That’s why
That’s why
With thanksgiving, I’ll forever adore

Yes, You took this heart
And made it tender
You led me through the storm
You took this heart
And I surrendered
New life, new love
In me formed

Chorus
Lord, You heard and answered my plea
Then gave more
Yes, You heard and answered each plea
And gave so much more
That’s why
That’s why
With thanksgiving, I’ll forever adore
With thanksgiving, I’ll forever adore
