HIDE ME IN THE PASTURE OF YOUR LOVE (A Song for Those Who Have Lost Their Way)

Of all that the Lord has given me to place before you, this has to be one of my favourites. I pray that it will bless you sweetly and speak to the very depths of your heart. He is our Shepherd. We are the sheep of His pasture and He loves us more than we can ever know.

To those who don’t know Him, please don’t wait another day to receive His gift of salvation and eternal life. To those who are wandering, seeking fulfillment, peace and happiness along your own path, don’t wait another day to hearken unto His call. Come unto Him. Now. He’s calling your name. Cry out, audibly or silently from a broken heart and He will answer. There is nothing to be afraid of. Let go. Let God. Your life will never be the same.

new born lamb

HIDE ME IN THE PASTURE OF YOUR LOVE
I’m just a little lamb Lord
Who’s lost its lonesome way
I’m just a little lamb Lord
Went out in the world to play

Chorus
So I come before You now Lord
In the pasture of Your love
Hide me in Your arms Lord
Hide me in the pasture of Your love

My heart is beating fast Lord
There’s danger all around
I’m just a little lamb Lord
Bleating desperately to be found

Chorus
So I come before You now Lord
In the pasture of Your love
Hide me in Your arms Lord
Hide me in the pasture of Your love

Strayed once too often, now all alone
In fields, uncertain and oh! so cold
I’m just a little lamb Lord
Forgive me and bring me into Your fold

Chorus
So I come before You now Lord
In the pasture of Your love
Hide me in Your arms Lord
Hide me in the pasture of Your love

I see You now Lord, Your arms are open wide
And tenderly You lift me
This little lamb’s now by Your side
I’m just a little lamb Lord
A little lamb, now with a peaceful heart
I’m just a little lamb Lord
Now safe knowing we’ll never be apart

Chorus
Oh! I stand before You now Lord
In the pasture of Your love
You’ve hidden me in Your arms Lord
I’m hidden in the pasture of Your love

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

JUST REST IN WHAT I’VE BROUGHT YOU THROUGH (SONG LYRICS)

hi leather child lovely highdefinition picture

Lord, I’m feeling overwhelmed
So many thoughts confound me
Deliver me as You said You would
Please forgive my unbelief, and me

Chorus
Just rest in what I’ve brought you through
Oh! Child, just rest, you’re free
The burdens I’ve delivered you from
I’ve exchanged, and given you Me

Lord, I still feel the battle
The fire grows hotter each day
So how can I stand much more of this
When I’m empty, nothing left to pray

Chorus
Just rest in what I’ve brought you through
Oh! Child, just rest, you’re free
The burdens I’ve delivered you from
I’ve exchanged and given you Me

Then suddenly I see light
Illuminating my words
It’s not what I am feeling oh no!
They’re lies on wings of wandering birds

I see all that You’ve given
And the depths You’ve drawn me from
At last I understand what You mean
I must rest in our Father’s Kingdom

Many storms have passed me by
You’ve sheltered me completely
I’m sorry Lord, I tend to forget
About them, when a new one I see

Lord, may Your love embrace me
Help me forever let go
Help me rest in all You’ve brought me through
Cradled in peace, I’ll go forth and sow

I’ve struggled to win the fight
Projecting calamity
Living in what might, just might happen
Instead of joying in liberty

Chorus
I’m resting in what You’ve brought me through
As Your child, I rest, I’m free
Burdens now gone, I’m delivered
Believed , received, and in You, I see me

He Lives, We Die

purple water lily

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

His Death, Our Life

the cross

Pierced by hatred
Pierced by thorns
Crowned with pain
He died for all

Unrelenting agony
Suffered He for us
Torn, jagged flesh
Whipped with cruel bone

Life, it left Him
Emptying, abandoning
Covering every sin upon Him
Crimson, yet spotless, He bled for me

Nowhere to run, nowhere to hide
In bondage to those nails
A prisoner; but free
Fulfilling the will of the Father

May we never cease to cherish
That cherished moment
When He cried, “It is finished”
Glory to God in Heaven, forever shall be

CLOSER TO THE CROSS (Song Lyrics)

cross jesus wood

I had trouble separating the verses on this post, so please read it, chorus and verse in sections of four lines each.

Chorus

And He drew closer to the Cross

Each footstep bringing many more to glory

Heaven had paid the cost in eternity past

This is His beautiful story

What is love, Who is love

This wondrous thing called love

No-one can ever comprehend

The depths of our dear Father’s love

Love was, and is, will come

Love walked the earth, so pure

And he healed wherever He went

Infusing the sick with His cure

Breaking down our strongholds

Releasing all our fears

Piercing every form of darkness

Capturing our repentant tears

Chorus

And He drew closer to the Cross

Each footstep bringing many more to glory

Heaven had paid the cost in eternity past

This is His beautiful story

Eyes beholding beauty

Ears embrace melody

I saw Him as He staggered past

All man, all God, all dignity

His voice, all powerful

Yet silent as the sun

Burning with words of Love Divine

Victory over death is won

And our hearts, they entwined

For I was one He called

I had heard of His salvation

I am redeemed, healed and restored

Chorus

And He drew closer to the Cross

Each footstep bringing many more to glory

Heaven had paid the cost in eternity past

This is His beautiful story

THE CHRISTMAS LOVE SONG

christmas decorations

O sweet Christmas love song
The most beautiful ever born
Your notes are sweeter than honey
With golden melody You adorn

You draw the lost hope out of darkness
You heal every broken heart
You seal each life with eternity
And mend all that’s torn apart

Can you feel new life, and faith birthing
Do you dream of being free
Can you hear the melodies echo
Have you found love’s remedy

Just listen to the Christmas love song
And let Christ’s joy be released
Break off the cold chains of hopelessness
Know that hopelessness has ceased

O This Christmas love song
This Christmas
Find yourself in Him
He was born
And your name was sung
Woven in angelic lullaby
Falling from heaven when His time was come

It’s the Christmas love song
The most beautiful ever sung
The notes are sweeter than honey
The chords bound before the world begun

A PRAYER FOR THESE TRYING TIMES

20180324_162707

Heavenly Father,

In the mighty healing name of Jesus, I come to You oh Lord, in this great hour of need, lifting all who are hurting unto You. Knowing that only You can answer every one of their needs. Needs lifted by them in prayer for themselves, their loved ones, or others. Those too weak to pray. Those who have given up because they have prayed once, or many a time, and not seen an answer. Please make Yourself real to them. May Your Living Water wash and cleanse every wound, and may Your Healing Balm be poured in. Into the depths of wounds created long, long ago, yesterday, or even today. You are the same yesterday, today, and forever. May doors that have been closed and locked for so long, be opened. May doors that have not been able to be closed, slam shut. All according to Your will in each life Lord. May tears be dried, may tears be released. May chains be broken off fear, sadness, depression, betrayal, hopelessness, indecision, abandonment, confusion. Father, You sent Your only begotten Son to take our place, a place of emptiness, darkness, destruction, terror. In their place, His death and shed blood bought us fullness, light, wholeness, peace. Oh Lord, may this prayer find its way into broken homes, broken families, broken hearts, breaking hearts. With You there is fullness of joy, love, forgiveness, a very present help in time of need. Today Lord, today, help us to hear Your voice. Your voice calling our name. Calling us unto You through the beautiful name of Jesus. The Way, the Truth, the Life. For those who are questioning Your existence, for those who have denied You before, ignored You, run from You, at a crossroad in their life, may today be the day of salvation. No sin is too great for them not to be forgiven. No filth too horrid for Your cleansing. No disease too far gone for restoration. No relationship too scarred for renewal. Forgiveness and healing, because today is the day of salvation. Today. Today. Today. Right now. May hearts and lives be surrendered upon reading these words. This prayer. Lifted in faith that lives will be changed, and that You will be given the glory. Another child, children, for the Kingdom of God. Have mercy upon us Lord. It is not Thy will that any perish, and You are no respecter of persons. There is healing in Your wings. Call us under Your wings Lord, where there is safety. Safety from the wrath to come. Safety from the destruction all around us. Seen and unseen. Safety from deception. From evil. Oh Lord, deliver us. In Christ Jesus we are free. In His name there is life. Life forevermore. Nothing is impossible for You. Thank you Father for answered prayer in the precious name of Jesus and through the power of Holy Spirit.

Amen and Amen.

YOU FOUND ME BY THE WELL OF DESPAIR … (Please Listen and Be Blessed)

plant growing in desert

Chorus
You found me by the well of despair
Alone and thirsty, You found me there
Oh! Jesus, You sought me out
You left heaven to find me
I thought every day would be the same
But You came, gently whispering my name

Sometimes You lovingly lead us
Away from all things that we know
Take us to places far away
You lead us, a new life to show

We think it’s for us, this leading
To lift us from adversity
But we reach the destination
And sense loss of security

And then You bring a hurting one
They meet us by the water’s edge
And all that You’ve ever shown us
Flows, and washes away pain’s hedge

Chorus
You found me by the well of despair
Alone and thirsty, You found me there
Oh! Jesus, You sought me out
You left heaven to find me
I thought every day would be the same
But You came, gently whispering my name

We cry oh! Lord, why is this so
We’re struggling, we need help as well
Now there’s more brokenness to heal
But that’s when You say, ‘All is well’

I’ve already lifted you out
Out of the dark well of despair
Your purging is done, you are free
’Tis for them that I brought you here

And I will come, deliver them
Bring forth life from the seeds you’ve sown
And in your sweet obedience
Richer days, I will walk you home

Chorus
You found me by the well of despair
Alone and thirsty, You found me there
Oh! Jesus, You sought me out
You left heaven to find me
I thought every day would be the same
But You came, gently whispering my name

THE SHIP OF WELLNESS (Song Lyrics)

sail forward lake constance

Chorus

Sailing over the ocean grand

Sights set beyond what I can see

I am the captain of this here ship

Steering with the words that flee

Flee out of a joyous heart

On course for prosperity

 

A life cradled in safety

A life with no fear

Knowing that I’m not alone

That Jesus is here

 

Oceans roll, and seabirds cry

Songs fragrance the wind

As white sails mirror the clouds

A new life begins

 

I’m on the ship of wellness

Abundantly free

Sickness is tossed overboard

Bye captivity

 

Chorus

Sailing over the ocean grand

Sights set beyond what I can see

I am the captain of this here ship

Steering with the words that flee

Flee out of a joyous heart

On course for prosperity

 

And I declare I am rich

Rich in God’s mercy

And I declare I am healed

Grave clothes out to sea

 

I sail through the trials of life

Sheltered in His arms

Picturing the grand old ship

Safe from every harm

 

Yes, free to sail wherever

His Spirit does lead

No bondage to weigh me down

Healing is decreed

 

Chorus

Sailing over the ocean grand

Sights set beyond what I can see

I am the captain of this here ship

Steering with the words that flee

Flee out of a joyous heart

On course for prosperity
