Maker Of All!

The green of the trees
And the cows on the hills,
Remind me of God
And promises fulfilled.

He owns it all
From season to season,
All creation is His
And for only one reason…

He receives glory
From all that He’s made,
He deserves honor
And to always be praised!

…for every animal of the forest is mine, and the cattle on a thousand hills. ~ Psalm 50:10
For by Him all things were created: things in heaven and on earth…Colossians 1:16a

He Knows My Heart!

Thank You, God
For knowing my heart,
For loving me always
For each day’s new start.

Only You could know who I am
…If I seek Your will,
And Your purpose
And plan.

Thank You for giving me
Choice and free will,
To abide in Your presence
Seeking Your will.

Trusting, obeying
Looking to please,
Allowing Your Spirit
Access to me!

My sin held me bound
But now I am free,
No man or opinion
Comes between You and me!

I walk with You
My chains are all gone,
Guilt and suspicion
I no longer dwell on.

I know where I’m going
And where I will be,
To Jesus and heaven
Through eternity!

I have set the Lord always before me. Because He is at my right hand, I will not be shaken. Therefore my heart is glad and my tongue rejoices; my body also will rest secure. Psalm 16:8-9

Heavenly Room!

I walked into a crowded room
Not knowing anyone,
Wondering who they were
And where they each were from.

As I heard their voices
And what was being said,
My heart was moved and lifted
Even while I bowed my head.

Conversations all around me
Spoke of joy and peace and love,
And I quickly understood
They spoke of God above.

My comfort level grew
We shared a common bond,
Jesus was among us
And our praise for Him was strong.

I humbly bowed before Him
So thankful for God’s grace,
And for the souls He saved
Who were gathered in this place!

This “room” may be what heaven will be like until we begin to recognize those who’ve gone before! Our praise and hallelujahs will sing out and ring out for our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ!

I heard what sounded like a great multitude, like the roar of rushing waters and like loud peals of thunder, shouting: “Hallelujah! For our Lord God Almighty reigns.” Revelation 19:6

“Beautiful Ride”

Beautiful rock formations
And beautiful countryside,
So much to see for you and for me
As we go for a beautiful ride.

In the midst of the change of seasons
As the weather changes to cool,
The highways and byways transport us
And give us a different view.

Sunsets are awesome and glorious
But we’ve seen one to top them all,
The sky over Missouri, magnificent
Created by God without flaw!

Yours is the day, Yours also the night; You have established the heavenly lights and the sun. You have fixed the boundaries of the earth; You have made summer and winter. Psalm 74:16-17

 

Today!

Today looks to be one filled with blessing! God is so good and His awesomeness is every where I look. The birds are cheerfully singing, the sun is beautifully shining, the breeze is cool and refreshing and there are reminders all around that He is present and loving me! Might He be glorified today as He accomplishes all He desires to do – in hearts, in lives, in the universe He created! Praise Him and sing of His wonderful, magnificent love. Be thankful for His justice, His grace and His mercy. He is God and worthy to be praised!

You turned my wailing into dancing; You removed my sackcloth and clothed me with joy, that my heart may sing to You and not be silent. O Lord my God, I will give You thanks forever. Psalm 30:11-12

What A Day!

What a day of wind and change
Weather patterns rearranged,
Sun emerging right on cue
Clouds to block my point of view!

Temperatures climbing
Then they fall;
Strange behavior
But all in all…
A lovely day
No matter conditions,
This day in May
Helps dispositions!

Nice weather is here
Or mostly so,
Thank You, God
Your blessings flow!

It is so great knowing that whatever the weather, God is in control. The sun boosts our spirits and who doesn’t love a bright sunny day? But all the days are a gift from God and should move us to joy and praise. Every day belongs to Him. We may be “up” on beautiful days and “down” on gloomy days. Not so God! He uses every day to His glory and our benefit. Thank You, God, that the weather is in Your hands – every day! Help us rejoice no matter the conditions outside and to be thankful for the gift of days!

This is the day which the Lord has made; We will rejoice and be glad in it. Psalm 118:24

Heaven, My Home!

Heaven is my home
My final place to rest…
In the arms of Jesus
The place to be most blessed!

He came from there and went again
To prepare this home for me,
I know it will be my comfort zone
For all eternity!

I like my earthly home
And its memories of love,
There’s so much more to come
In my heavenly home above!

All in all, my real home
Is with my Lord and King,
And with family and friends…

IN HEAVEN, TO HIM WE’LL SING!

Praise Him forever. He is glorified; we are blessed!

O Lord, our Lord, the majesty of Your name fills the earth! Your glory is higher than the heavens. Psalm 8:1

My Salvation!

I thank my God for my salvation
And often share with exclamation!
He is Savior to all men
God’s Gift if we will turn to Him.

The lost don’t know
What love they’re missing,
When over and over
They keep resisting;
His forgiveness, mercy
And His lasting grace,
He’s so worthy of all our praise!

God our Savior…wants all men to be saved and to come to a knowledge of the truth. 1 Timothy 2:3-4
God says, “In the time of my favor I heard you, and in the day of salvation I helped you.” I tell you, now is the time of God’s favor, now is the day of salvation. 2 Corinthians 6:2

Speaking For God!

I asked my Lord for words to speak
To share His love for those who seek.
He filled my heart with a song to sing
Of the awesomeness of Christ my King.
And no matter where my feet may go
There is waiting ground for seeds to sow.
There are hungry hearts and needy souls
Who need a touch from one who knows;
There’s a Savior with such love for them
And blessings that come from knowing Him.
Their lives will never be the same
When they reach out and call His Name.

While I live will I praise the Lord: I will
sing praises unto my God while I have any being.
Psalm 146:2

Praise the Lord, because He alone is great. He is
more wonderful than heaven and earth. Praise the
Lord!
Psalm 148:13

It is Winter where I live!

What could be prettier
On a cold winter day,
Than new fallen snow
Making a lovely display?
The touch of God’s hand
Making everything white,
And making all I can see
Such a wondrous delight!

God made the earth by His power;
He founded the world by His wisdom
and stretched out the heavens by His
understanding.
Jeremiah 10:12

The earth is the Lord’s, and all its
fullness, The world and those who dwell therein.
Psalm 24:1

All Your works shall praise You, O Lord,
And Your saints shall bless You.
Psalm 145:10
