Make Love Easy


My contribution to the God of love today.
Something I wrote a while ago but still feel.
God, thank you for your everlasting love

*You’re Easy to Love*

God, You’re so easy to love
You reign over me from above
Your peace is the song of a dove
You’re easy to love

As I sleep, You rejoice over me 1
I just wake up and breathe and receive
Keep my heart fixed on You and believe
You’re easy to love

I love You because You first loved me 2
And You’ve made it so easy to see
You love me and You’ve made me to be
Easy to love

I am weak, when I want to be strong
And You still sing to me Your love song
When I cry, You will capture my tears 3
When I’m lost, I have found You are near 4
You’re easy to love

You’re easy to love because You’ve first loved me
Easy to love and so easy to see
You love me and You’ve made me to be
Easy to love , easy to love.

It’s time to listen for a whisper


Are you listening?

Have you ever heard in your spirit, the Lord asking you a question?  How did you respond?

We know that He already knows the answer before He asks the question.

To me, this means that God is seeking the answer within our heart, though not

for Him to hear, but for us to hear our own heart before God.

Elijah, the great prophet of God, became fearful for his life and hid away. He had forgotten his

protector and as it sounds to me, he became anxious and depressed.

He fell victim to his own flesh, and like Peter, who “looked down at the water” started to sink..

He wanted God to let him die, but God had more for him. Elijah was then awakened by an Angel of the Lord who reassured him:

“You’re not finished yet.He traveled forty days to the mountain of the Lord on one meal the Angel had given him .

Once there and hidden in a cave, the Lord asks Elijah:

“What are you doing here?” Then Elijah, letting go of his “prophetic reigns” and caving in to his weakened flesh, says:

“I’m looking for You, because I am alone and useless and they are going to kill me.”

God said to him: “Come out here – the Lord is going to pass by.”

The Lord shows His power in wind, quake and fire,  but Elijah  doesn’t respond to it . He’s intimidated.

The Lord then speaks to him in a still, small voice and Elijah humbles himself and comes out of the cave.

The spirit is strong, but the flesh is weak. Elijah had lost touch with his spirit and was weak in his flesh, but God didn’t lose touch with him..

God didn’t chasten him either.  He still provided for him and guided him. I believe that God tried to revive Elijah by showing His power to him,

but Elijah was anxious and afraid.  Even though Elijah had become weak, God was still able to use him again and even answer the  plea of  his heart.

God knows that in our flesh and emotion ,we can fear such a show of power.

So God, in His Love, whispers to us, so we must draw near to Him and hear His still, small voice.

 Have you ever felt useless or alone? God is still with you.

Have you ever felt like you want to die? God is still with you.

When you feel like this, don’t allow lying, deceiving  spirits to dissuade  you.

Persevere, God is still with you.

Submit yourself to God, resist the devil and he will flee. Raise up a standard against the enemy and proclaim:

“God has a use for me- even in my weakness.” If you’re not sure what it is, ask God to show you.

Don’t  wait for the power of God to come like a mighty wind, earthquake or blazing fire – reviving you and knocking you down.

It’s time to listen for a whisper….that still-small voice that

causes you to draw near to Him, so He may draw near to you..

Read the following verses that God inspired me to write, concerning Elijah and me.

“In a whisper”                  1 Kings 19:11

God spoke – to Elijah in a whisper

Not by wind – not by fire – in a whisper

He will   lead you by still water

Follow Him – trust in Him – you will see

Jesus calmed the stormy water

With His voice- Peace be still – Peace be still

Are you listening for a whisper

Just draw near- near to Him -you will hear

Hearing Him- not the wind- in a whisper

Listen for a whisper

A voice that draws you near

Move a little closer

Closer so you hear

You won’t hear crashing thunder

Or see a blazing flame

Only Holy Passion

When Jesus says your name

In a whisper- In a whisper

Love of God – calling you

In a whisper

Not by wind – not by fire

In a whisper

Peace be still

In a whisper – In a whisper

Are you listening?

Back to the Garden


We have all been  planted in God’s garden here on Earth.  His garden has been the same for generations and will be for generations to come.

We can spend our time waiting for the rain to fall or we can dig our roots deep into the fertile soil that God has put us in.

There is water in the depths that will make us grow –  go deeper.  Enjoy your time here.

Listen  to God’s birds sing – they’ll sing to you for free.

Listen to the wind , blowing through the trees –  they play a song for you.

Listen to the joy and innocence of children playing – they’ll play with you.

 

Spend some time away from the television or computer screen and sit and watch the Sun set. Wake up early and watch the Sun rise.

Rest in the faith and joy that the Sun will rise again tomorrow, in God’s garden, where the Son has risen.

 

Back to the Garden

 

There is a Garden – a beautiful Garden

A Garden where you can go everyday

It’s there in the spirit – a pure heart is near it

A  Garden you’ll live in one day

 

Back to the Garden – where Jesus is waiting

He’s waiting to show you where you came to be

Waiting to be with you – waiting to walk with you

There in the cool of the day

Back to the Garden where nothing is hidden

Where all that we needed was there on a tree

A tree that turned sinfulness into salvation

Back to the Garden of Eden

 

So come back to the Garden – where Jesus is waiting

He’s waiting to show you where you came to be

Waiting to be with you – waiting to walk with you

There in the cool of the day

A Garden of fragrances – Aromas of promises

Aromas that lead you to words you should pray

Your heart beats are dances – your spirit romances

The songs that the Garden of fragrances plays

 

Back to the Garden where nothing is hidden

Where all that we needed was there on a tree

A tree that turned sinfulness into salvation

Back to the Garden of Eden

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Breath of Winter


 

I hear the snowflakes falling

Well, I make believe I do

It’s winter’s song that’s calling

A frozen morning dew

Winter sneaks in, with a crusted, country pond

And a bird scratching seeds

Trapped in the icy ground

As a gentle breeze whispers by

Shivering, a tear wets my eye

I can touch the coldness in the air

Touch my misted breath

Playing my wintry song

With the breath this life has given

Why Poetry?


Poetry is a universe with  billions of stars in it.

Each poem is a star that shines in the heart of the person or poet, if you will; whose heart and mind found communion with a pen and paper and had the compassion, empathy and love, to share it with the world.

Never classify yourself-simply be yourself.

No one else can write what you or I write.

They don’t have our heart.

I don’t have to be poetic, for His word has written me.

Poetry is His Holy Spirit living inside of me.

“Lord, You Yourself are poetry”

Writing and singing my love to God and His love for me

God Himself is poetry

The balance of His creation is poetry

Time and His word are rhyme and harmony

I don’t have to write it – I can see, hear, smell it

Touch the poetry of His creation

He is within me – poetry

The Sun lighting the day

The voice and the song

The words on a page

The kiss of two lovers

Wind through the trees

The dew on the ground in the morning

Your Holy Spirit among us is poetry

Your love for me is poetry

You are poetry

Presence


Live in the present – In the presence of God

The present – like a gift – the gift of God

His presence is a gift.

Be content in all situations

For His presence is always there.

Don’t yield to the flesh

Surrender to God

Don’t let your flesh be your reward

Absence from the flesh, is presence with God.
