He Weaves a Golden Path – The Trials and Blessings of a Believer

Golden Orb and flowers 19th April, 2013 021

Step into His endless wonders
Walk along the Christian path
Weaving, He opens countless blessings
Daily sunbeams warm the hearth

Yes the trials are present and many
And it takes faith to make it through
But enclosing unseen steps need taken
Love surrounds with golden hue

The Light breaks into the fearful unknown
Strength, might and power do not bend
Eternal arms hold in adoration
For this did His Father relinquishing send

Darkness contained in the pureness of Light.

A Heart Alone

21st Jan, 2013 014

The Lord impressed upon me this morning how very alone we are if we do not die to self

–       –       –       –       –       –       –

‘Verily, verily, I say unto you, Except a corn of wheat fall into the ground and die, it abideth alone: but if it die, it bringeth forth much fruit.’

John 12:24 KJV

–       –       –       –       –       –       –

Alone and without hope

How alone …

Alone …

How alone without the Saviour

Literally alone

Friends, people may surround

But aloneness within prevails

And the heartbreaking thing about this is, that those afflicted, are unaware of it and therefore unable to comprehend the reason

… and the turmoil continues

In darkness alone

Emptiness

Despair

–       –       –       –       –       –       –

But The Light of the world is waiting on the edge of that darkness

(John 9:5b KJV)

Waiting to infiltrate the darkness of life and flood it with life-giving breath

Just ask

Eternal life awaits

–       –       –       –       –       –       –

HE  LIVES,  WE  DIE

The stone which hid, is rolled away

Jesus has risen; we are watching, swaying, and cry

Help us comprehend, dear Lord

He lives, the price, beyond our means was paid

***

He lives, hallelujah, we live

And because He lives, so must we die

Die to self, it’s our turn now

But all glory, He has blessed us to live in Christ

***

Surrender all your right to self

Grind emotions, thoughts and plans prepared

Let your Saviour’s power prevail in you

A new creation, tears and repentance succeed

***

Standing in the power of His mighty, precious Son

Escape the hold of earthly things

And acquaintances that beckon forth

Listen for that soft, small voice in turmoil that unfolds

***

Jesus calls us, gently leads us

We have no right or hold on the old life

And just as a flower bursts forth with sweet newness

In pain and anguish we are pushed out of hardness

***

Thank you for a life refreshed

Thank you for a life eternal

Thank you that You died, without surrender

We sing praises to our ever-loving Father

An excerpt from ‘Battling Forward’ in “Fragrance from the Spring”

Excerpt from “Battling Forward”

“Push through the hardships, toils and sorrows
For the Lord God, our very own God
He reigns triumphant”

*      *       *       *       *       *       *

He is mighty

He is worthy

An anchor in stormy seas

A lighthouse when all else is in darkness

A sunbeam shining through endless clouds

A rainbow of hope

Joy in the morning

A melody in the night

Rain in the drought

Sunshine in the flood

Shelter

Abundance

All-in-all

Freedom

Salvation

Love

Peace

Healer

Deliverer

Forgives all when forgiveness sought

Life

Mender of broken hearts

Full of mercies

And they are new every morning

“By the grace of God I am what I am” 1 Cor 15:10a KJV

Dewdrops on the roses

The sweetness of  a bird call

Yes, He is mighty and I could go on forever …….

So break through your burdens and grasp the hand of the One who loves you.

Would love you to add to the list ……. God bless.

Spinning, Spinning

spiders' web 12th Jan, 2013 017

Pure prettiness emanating out of pure light.

Something spun out of nothing ……. and yet here is strength, protection, provision.

Promise.

–   –   –

Do you ever feel like your life is going around and around and well … around?

Spinning out of control?

–   –   –

With Jesus as our source, we too receive strength, protection, provision.

Promise.

–   –   –

Our life is ordered.

Pain is lifted.

Sorrows wither.

Gladness enters.

New life is given.

Yesterday’s hurts and tomorrow’s fears –

All bottled, forgotten and lovingly healed.
