Crisis!

Oh, the upheaval
In life we go through,
When things seem to settle
Another crisis breaks through.
It makes for emotions
That go up and go down,
A roller coaster in action
Or a merry go round!
No matter how scattered
And all over the place,
Our feelings can settle
When God’s in our space.
Crisis is constant
It surely seems so,
But when He is with us
We can be high when we’re low.
We never can know
What to expect day to day,
Whether trauma or drama
The Lord makes it okay!

Those who hope in the Lord
will renew their strength. They
will soar on wings like eagles;
they will run and not grow weary,
they will walk and not be faint.
Isaiah 40:31

Family Blessings!

I’m so thankful for my family
The blessings of them all,
God is good to give them
And I love them one and all.
Friends are neat to have
And special in special ways,
But God and family mean the most
And belong to us always.
When we are down or wander
And need the love that binds,
Our family gathers ’round us
Most always all the time.
And when we lose each other
There’s a spot that can’t be filled,
So we hold on tight forever
To the memories we can build.
However God has made us
To be a family,
His heart of love for each of us
Supports our family tree!

Thank You, God, for the gift
and blessings of my family!

Hearts Invaded or Invaded Heart!

Life is so imperfect
Just as humans are,
We need to guard our hearts
Not leave them open and ajar;
Only God should enter
And His goodness find its place,
Nothing from the enemy
Should ever take up space.
Sins that seem so innocent
Come to us in sweet disguise,
We’re duped into believing
Sugar coated lies.
God wants to give protection
And help us lock the door to pain,
He wants full rights to our heart
To be the One to always reign.
We each know what has crowded
Him from the place He used to be,
He’s reaching out – calls our name
He longs to set us free!

Blessed are they that keep
His testimonies, and that seek
Him with the whole heart. With
my whole heart have I sought
thee: O let me not wander from
thy commandments. Psalm 119:2, 10
Hear my cry, O God; attend unto my
prayer. From the end of the earth will
I cry unto thee, when my heart is
overwhelmed: lead me to the rock
that is higher than I. Psalm 61:1-2
