America The Blessed!

America the beautiful
America the blessed,
God’s goodness and mercy…
North and south, east to west.

America has become
A very different place,
It can’t be denied…
A reality we must face.

But God is the same
As He was yesterday,
His plan is perfect
No need for dismay.

Yet our concerns
Can be turned into prayer,
We can take them to Him
And then leave them there.

He is Sovereign
And has the final say,
The future of America
Will play out His way!

2 Chronicles 7:14 ~ “If my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then will I hear from heaven and will forgive their sin and will heal their land,” says the Lord.

Denouncing Fear!

Lord, we’re in a time and place
Where we need to see You, face to face
To draw closer to Your touch
To look to You for oh so much!

Wisdom – allowing You to teach
To learn what before stayed out of reach,
With blinded eyes and hearts grown cold
Open us now, Lord, help us be bold.

To know Your will, to know You well
Sharing with others we can tell,
Of Your love and mercy, that You’re fair and just
And in only You can we put our trust.

Lord, before it becomes too late
And we know neither the time or date,
Pour out Your Spirit on those You can use
We must turn to You – there is much to lose…

No one can ever say about You
“God is not real. God is not true.”
But there are many who believe this to be
We see it each day – they just won’t believe!

You look at the heart and know in the end
The one who is seeking and who will repent,
The very things You require of man
To receive Christ – Your salvation plan.

The enemy may be dancing in glee
As he wins some battles but not victory,
He sets the trap and watches man fall
But You pick up those who answer Your call.

Might we stand by Your side while on bended knee
Denouncing the fear as our hope is in thee,
Help us be strong in the storm on its way
Christ will return – maybe today?

The Lord is faithful, and He will strengthen and protect you from the evil one. 2 Thessalonians 3:3

Not Forsaken!

A heart filled with love for the Savior
Has hope that will never leave,
It beats with a strong devotion
With each breath that it takes to breathe.

Faith overcomes the deeper it grows
In the One who calms all our fears,
With an open heart on bended knee
The yielded prayer He hears.

God won’t deny or forget about us
He’s beside us wherever we go,
Seek His will, study His Word
It’s there and assures it is so.

Draw close to Him who is close at hand
He is LIGHT in the dark and the drear,
He’ll never forsake those who are seeking
He’s the calm in the storm that we fear.

God has said, “Never will I leave you; never will I forsake you.” Hebrews 13:5; The Lord replied, “My presence will go with you, and I will give you rest.” Exodus 33:14

A Special Find

I was looking through some of my books today and found two I forgot that I have. Both warmed my heart as I saw they were gifts from my daughter. They both have Mother in their titles. As I began to read through them, I got excited. I can hardly wait to sit down with them and reread what brought such joy the first time I read them! Most likely, I’ll share some of that joy right here. Thank you, Amy, for loving me. I love you!

God finds ways to encourage our hearts
To cause us to look up to Him,
Even a book that sits on a shelf
Can be a wonderful friend!

A generous man will prosper; he who refreshes others will himself be refreshed. Proverbs 11:25
