Laced

You are speaking through my flowers,
which wonderfully empowers.
My spirit does soar,
praising my Lord galore.
~
The leaves have beautiful lace,
all I can see is Your grace;
laced with bright reds,
around the leaves it spreads.
~
Each dark pink joint,
is a connecting point,
from one leaf to another,
beautifully touching each other.
~
Red runs through the veins,
there its beauty remains.
It grows strong and tall,
no longer is it small.
~
The growth in my plant,
cancels out the can’t.
It is a good reminder,
God is even kinder.
~
Praise be
to Thee
God Almighty
who’s with me.

Not Alone

I shall not moan,
for I’m not alone.
My help does come,
when I need some.
I always know,
wherever I go,
He guides my steps.
The Lord intercepts,
and keeps me from harm;
He sounds the alarm,
when there is danger.
He’s like a ranger,
who is always aware.
I am in His care.
He knows the land,
His knowledge is grand.

Despite Fear *Ezra 3:3

“Despite their fear of the peoples around them…”
~~~
They didn’t let fear stop them from honoring God. Despite what was around them. Despite what was happening in the land, they put their faith and trust in the God of Israel and God blessed them for it.
~~~
We, too, can step out in faith trusting that God will take care of us when we do what is hard, but good to honor Him. Faith and trust in the Lord God of Israel no matter what! No matter who is around. No matter who is watching. No matter how we feel. Despite fear we also can put our faith and trust in the Mighty One.

New Friend

I needed a friend
so God did send
one to me.
I am so happy.
~
I’m weaned off the bottle
now I am a role model.
Every time we talk,
it helps steady our walk.
We will grow along the way
as we seek God each day.
~
Lord, You are so faithful,
for which I am so grateful.
Your timing is always right,
it sure makes the way bright.
Thank you for tonight,
in You I delight.

Focus

Do away with hocus-pocus
and rearrange your focus.
Truth is not found in any card
that way is marred.
It’s only for greed
that the gypsy’s read.
Do not put your hope
in the horoscope.
~
You cannot afford
to turn from the Lord.
Eventually
you will see
your destiny
and where you’ll be.
Don’t wait
until it’s too late.
