Upon the Cornerstone

Holy Spirit
Come in light
Guide and lead
Give me sight

Provide your wisdom
Open my eyes
Give discernment
Cast out lies

Let your love
Counsel me
That I might grow
In what you lead

I give my heart
You shape and mold
Strengthen me
Let your work unfold

Build this temple
Raise the walls
Upon the cornerstone
Fill the halls

Grow my heart
On solid ground
To be a temple
Where Jesus is found

While they were talking and discussing, Jesus himself came near and walked with them. – Luke 24:15

Listening

Sitting by the window Sadie looked out at the morning light. She studied the patterns of the sun rays as they filtered through the window. The warmth of the rays brought a smile to her heart. Sadie fidgeted in what seemed like an oversized chair as she waited. Trying not to make a sound she pressed her little nose up against the glass. She watched as a Robin tilted its head this way and that. It hopped and hopped tilted and hopped. Mama said if I listen quietly I can hear what Jesus has to say, she thought to herself. Sadie tilted her head back and forth quietly as she watched the Robin hop along. Fidgeting again in her chair; it’s so hard to sit quietly and wait. Sadie wondered if the Robin was listening for what Jesus has to say. As She watched the Robin intently tilt its head, she tilted her head. This way and that she listened too! Sadie didn’t know why but somewhere deep inside her heart she knew her answer. And she knew it was exactly what the Robin heard Jesus say!  “If you search for me, you will find me” With deep joy Sadie ran eagerly to tell Mama.

Word of Love

Read a letter today of love
It touched my heart
It danced in my soul
Tender words making me whole

Beautifully gifted
They spoke deep within
Calming my fears
Releasing joyful tears

Only my lord could of seen so deep in my heart
Resting my thoughts
Satisfying my deepest need
To you my Savior I concede

Deeply Rooted

The happiness which brings enduring worth to life is not the superficial happiness that is dependent on circumstances. It is the happiness and contentment that fills the soul even in the midst of the most distressing of circumstances and the most bitter environment. It is the kind of happiness that grins when things go wrong and smiles through the tears. The happiness for which our souls ache is one undisturbed by success or failure, one which will root deeply inside us and give inward relaxation, peace, and contentment, no matter what the surface problems may be. That kind of happiness stands in need of no outward stimulus.

Billy Graham

Let not your hearts be troubled

Peace I leave with you; my peace I give to you. Not as the world gives do I give to you. Let not your hearts be troubled, neither let them be afraid.   John 14:27

Leaning In

Lean into the Light
His promises at hand
Lean in
Where darkness can’t stand

Lean into Jesus
His open arms
Lean in
Rest away from the worlds harm’s

Lean into Glory
God’s Holiness proclaim
Lean in
Under the wings of Jesus’ mighty name

Lean into the Holy Spirit
Fan the flame
Lean in
Let love lay claim

Lean in
