Deep Longing

As the grass each day needs the fallen rain
I need you my Lord in my life so much more
And as the clouds need to embrace the sky above
I need to hold you so much more I am sure

So what might a bee be without sweet honey
Or a tree so barren without any leaves
Or an ocean without blue splashing waves
Without you I am a struggling ship lost at sea

For what would paradise be without heaven
Or life in this world without our God
For those things would all be meaningless
Without the miraculous touch of his love

For I would be like a flower not tasting rain
Or the midnight sky without a stars shining light
For without Your warm tender love beside me
Living my life could never again be right\

For as  the grass each day needs the fallen rain
And as the sky needs the clouds to embrace
I will always have a lasting  need in my life
Every day to  receive the smile from your face

The Only Living God

Shall my heart not leap with vibrant joy,
At the coming of each new day.
Is not my heart full of the happiness,
That my spirit has now embraced.

For You Lord are my constant pleasure,
And the life that allows my heart to beat.
For with  every breath I take so deeply,
I daily embrace the love it seeks to keep.

I lift You up “Oh Lord Of Hosts”
For Your Holy name is my most valued treasure.
As I  rise so daily with the morning sun.,
In my life there won’t  be a time called never.

For all my  steps are written in your book of life,
As my beginnings can be traced back to Your love.
When my spirit was fashioned by your loving hands,
To give daily praise to the only  Living God.

Eager Expectation

As we sit down each day to write
Creation does take delight
Because from its very beginning
It has eagerly awaited  those
Who were predestined to bring
The light of the creator back
Into a world darkened by sin and

For those who have risen through
the death of Christ,  why they
yet live in the flesh in  this putrid world, have
become empowered in their inner person
by the Holy Spirit to be the blessed
carriers of the eternal message
of  His loving grace.

For those who have put self
To death  in Christ, now are reborn
to serve  through the risen Spirit
of  our Lord,  are no longer slaves
to sin but joint heirs to the
kingdom yet unseen,  that
they patiently await with a  fervent
and passionate hope.

So let the words of their new message
flow from  deep within, while their
new inner person delights
In every message  that comes
From the Holy spirit that now inhabits
their  hearts , for if they
Indeed are alive in the Spirit,
will not the words that flow from
The Holy Spirits  power move many
To be saved?

Never tire of  doing the good
that you now do, but stand strong
for only a few are chosen for
this  challenging but enjoyable

For it will be remembered,
as those who serve  shall
live forever with Him
In His kingdom!   For though
your  flesh has died to sin, your inner
person, that is your spirit is alive
with Christ serving him daily
with all your heart.

For there Is only one way to see God
and that is through the new
creation of the inner person
within.   If Christ is in you,
your body Is now dead
because of sin, but  your new
inner person,  your spirit
Is alive now because of  God’s
blessed  righteousness and grace.

I have always called  upon you,
whenever I was in need.
And Lord, you always answered,
my many prayers and pleas.

And I am truly blessed this day,
because you have kept me so alive.
For never have I known a moment,
when you were not by my side.

You  are my true protector,
Golden armor and a bright shield to see.
So wherever I went I had no worries,
for you were always so close to me.

And there is no truer thought in life,
than the expression of heavenly love.
The kind that reminds one daily,
Who you are always thinking of.

"Never Say Goodbye"

There is a fire that has a home
within your two brown eyes
A fire that knows no endings
that will eternally burn inside

For only happy people my love
do possess the gift that is yours
For only they have the magic within
to make the flame burn forevermore

And the fire is a ferocious fire
yet to the touch there is no heat
Until the moment happens
when we embrace and our hearts meet

And the fire has taken its refuge
deep inside your two brown eyes
For they alone show the affection
that to my world will  never  say goodbye.

Sorely Missed

Swept  away from my face was the sadness
As my day slowly came to an end
Replacing it on my face was the gladness
As this hour would finally begin.

When you arms will gently embrace me
While our lips happily share a sweet kiss
Telling me with more than spoken  words
How my love your day did sorely missed.

In each day there seems a moment to celebrate
That special time when  two bind  together as one
For happiness always flavors our sweetest  moments
Bringing to our day a long awaited outcome.

We joyfully play love’s daring tug of war
At this moment to see who might be the  best
Explaining to the other with vibrant words
What today in their lives was so sorely  missed.
