( Troubles? I had loads of them -family responsibilities, frailty following Cancer surgeries. Name it. I had it!
But when he opened his bible - and showed Me that Verse - {Hebrews 11:1-6} - I was dazzled by the brightness of God's promises - and I felt lifted from the pains of life, filled with hope and courage.
Ever since, it has served as a guide to lead me out of troubles into The Light of His Truth, and onto the firm Foundation of HIS Love. )

THE TESTING

This period
of Testing
Is only
To Test
My Faith.
The Tempter
tempted
Jesus
Too!
He would have
Me lose
The fact
of My Healing.
For the Touch
of The Master
Upon Me
He doth deeply rue!
I must
In Jesus name rebuke
Any doubts
That come
From him.
I must refuse
To let
My Faith
and Joy ever
Become even
faintly dim.
But I shall just
Implicitly Believe
That God's glorious
Love
Has visited
Me
In a Miracle
From HIS Heaven
Above!

THE LORD OF THE HARVEST

The Lord of the Harvest
Is Calling,
Calling
Ever Calling . . .
The Words echo
and re-echo
on the air.
"The fields are
White
With the harvest".
For HIS Laborers to come
In answer to HIS call
I lift my heart
In fervent prayer.

`
DON'T WORRY

I do not worry - I
just pray about
everything that concerns
ME TODAY -
Of Tomorrow
I have No
Deep Care,
I shall do
A good job
of it
When I get
There.
And from
All Yesterday's
Pain and sorrow
Today
I do not wish
To borrow.
Today is fresh
And shining
And New.
Lord, I present
It
Intact
To You.

`

IN A MIRACLE

I must rebuke
In Jesus' name
Any doubts
That come
From him.
I must refuse
To let
My Faith
And joy ever
even faintly
Become
dim.
I shall
But just
Implicitly Believe
that
God's glorious
Love
Has visited
Me in a Miracle
From His Heaven
Above.
I shall just

LOOSE HIM LORD

Loose him
Lord
and let him
go free
That he May
Be strong
To Work
For Thee.
Unbind Satan's
Coils
About him.
Give him of
Thy great Power
and Vim.
Let THY Healing
Strength
Flow through
His body
Wracked with
Pain.
Give him
Thy grace
and Joy
Again!
Set him Free
Lord,
Set him FREE.
Lord and Savior,
Set him
FREE
To Work
for
THEE.
(A prayer for her son, Ben)

`
We do not know what
The Lord wants to
Make of us, as He
carves us out, chips
Away at our stony
hearts and lives.
We must be as
putty in His Hands,
that He May work
in Us and through
Us. He wants us to be
Fluid - so that we can be
poured out
To others...
As from Golden Pitchers.
***
"Go here"- "go there"
People say.
But God says
He will make
A straight Path
Before You.
On the Path
of Faith,
Only Believe.
`
PRAYER TO THE LORD OF THE HARVEST

Lord, I know
That Everywhere
All over The World
Lie
Your Warm
Glowing
Harvest Fields.

I seem to see
Them
In My dreams,
with All
of their
Rich Yields.

In gladness
of heart
I follow YOU
To the Golden
Fields
Of Ripe, Waving
Grain.
My Sickle
Is Ready
In My hand.
On My lips
There is
A Joyous
Refrain.

The Harvest
Is Ripe,
But the Laborers
Are so
Few.
O Lord of
The Harvest,
Send Forth
OTHERS,
That We
May
Bring in
The glorious
Full Harvest
For YOU.

THE LITTLE SPARROW

This little Sparrow
As it goes
On The Wing
Can do
Nothing
But Sing
And Sing
And Sing.

It sings Praise
To it's Maker
As it flies
So High,
Praise for
The glory
of the Wide
Sky,
Praise for
The sheer Joy
That is in
Its Heart
At being
Of God's
Creation
A part.

Praise
For
The Knowledge
Of His Loving
Care,
Ever Watching
Over It - -
Making All
Of life
Fair.

O, This
Little Sparrow
As It goes
On The Wing
Can Do
Nothing
But Sing
And Sing
And Sing!!
