TAKE EACH STEP WITH GOD

 

God has

Led Us

On paths

We have

Not

Known

Oft in desert

Places

Enriched With

Prayer.

There have

Been

Sufferings

And

Sadness.

There have

Been

Blessings

That have brought

Joys

Like perfume of Flowers

Rare.

There have

Not

Been easy

Paths

We have

Trod,

But We have

Learned

To take

Each step

With God.

 

JUST TAKE IT ALL TO JESUS

 

Take All of Your pain

And sorrows...

Don't Wait for Tomorrow ~

Offer it All to JESUS

Ask Him to Purify

Your Life,

To lift it above

All it's strain and

Strife.

Just take it

All

To JESUS!

 

His JOY Will pour

Into Your Soul

As You reach

For HIS Goal.

Just take it

All

To JESUS.

The Sunshine

Of HIS Smile

Will be With You

All the While

If You just

Take It All

To JESUS.

Happiness

is

on the

Way

So Do

Not

Be led

Astray.

 

 

 

I HAVE AN ANCHOR

 

I have an Anchor

Wherever I May be,

And I Know that

Whatever My Circumstances

Are,

In Him I am

Set Free!

 

I am not bound

By painful happenings

From Almost every side,

For I Know that

As to Our perfect

Well being

Our Father's influence

In Jesus Name ~

Stretches far and

Wide.

All I have to do

Is To get on My

Knees,

And My Troubles

Will be swept

Aside

As by a Passing

Breeze.

 

I have An Anchor

Wherever I May be,

And I Know that

Whatever My

Circumstances Are,

In Him I am

Set Free!

 

 

 

THROUGH THE FIRE

 

Through the fire,

Through the pain,

I only Know

That God

Doth Reign.

 

When Things Have

Gone Wrong

We pray more

Deeply

When Things

Have Gone Wrong

Because We

Need so Very

Much

To find

HIS Song.

So from

The fiery furnace

We emerge,

Cleansed and

Renewed,

A pure Gold.

We Would not

If We Could

Go back

To things The Way

They Were

Of Old.

 

 

 

GOD IS WATCHING

 

God is Watching

Don't Be Afraid

Of Anything,

For You are

Safe

Under HIS Wing.

 

OUR WINGS

 

For Prayer

Has Brought

To Us

Our Wings

And in Sweet

Triumph

Our Soul

Sings!

 

 

 

 

I THANK YOU, LORD

 

I Thank YOU, Lord

For Answered Prayer.

I Thank YOU Lord,

For Answered Prayer...

And that You

Are Always There ~

Waiting to Answer

Me...

And from All

Of My Troubles

Set Me Blessedly

Free!

 

 

 

 

GOING THRU A STORM

 

If You go through

A Storm

With Your Thoughts

On High

And Without Any Doubts

Or Fears,

The dark Clouds

Above You

Will all dissolve,

And Your Faith

Will blot away

Any Tears.

Your Skies

Will become clear

As the Unmeasured

Sea of God's Love

While the Storm Clouds

Fade Away.

And Your Faith

Will be Bright

And Shining

As You See

The End

Of The Fray.

 

(Sent to President Reagan

in the storm he endured in 1985)

 

 

 

 

GO STEP BY STEP

 

Go Step by Step

With JESUS

And HE Will All

Of Your problems

And sorrows easily

Disband.

I Need You Lord,

When the strong

Storm Winds Blow ~ ~ ~

I Need Your

Rescuing Hand

And as I grasp it

Tightly, Closely

All of My Doubts

And fears

Disband.

 

REASSURANCE

 

My Heart is Singing

Today,

For The King Over Everything

Reigns There.

 

My Heart is Singing

Today

For It Knows

The True Meaning

Of Prayer,

My Troubles,

Uncertainties

And dreads

Are All

Washed Away

In Love's Wide Sea

For I Know that above

The heavy Storms,

My Father observeth

Me.

My Heart is Singing

Today,

This is All that

It Needed to Know. ~

Just that HE Watches,

That HE Cares,

And that HE Will

Not let

The Waters

Overflow.

I LOVE THE CROSS

 

I Love The Rugged

Cross

For JESUS long preceded

Me There.

Alleluiah!

O, I Love The Rugged

Cross

'Tis perfumed

With sweetness

Of My deepest Prayer.

Alleluiah!

I Love The Rigged

Cross

Where JESUS

Shed HIS Blood

Fir Me.

Alleluiah!

'Twas there I

Went

And gave HIM

All,

And There

HE set Me

Free.

Alleluiah!

O, I Love

The Shining Promise

Of Resurrection,

The glorious

Celestial Triumph

Of The Cross!

PRAYER

 

It's a Joy and a Surrender

And a resting In Thee,

It's a Knowledge that When

Ready

Thou Wilt fully succor

Me.

It's a Faith to feel Thy

Pathway underneath My

Seeking feet.

It's a Whispering Hope

To guide Me and Make Life

serene, Worthwhile and sweet.

Then When "The seeing"

Comes along With These ~ and the veil

is torn Away, I'll Know the

Meaning of the Wantings and I'll be Rejoicing All The Day.

It's a Waiting and a Believing ~ A Trusting

In Thee.

It's a Knowledge that when

Ready Thou Will surely Set Me

Free.

 

 

 

I STOOD ON A HILLSIDE ALONE

 

One Star

Was In The Sky

I Saw

A Vision

Of A Throne.

Faintly, I heard

A Baby's Cry.

 

I Walked

Down The

Steep Hill

and brushed

An Angel's

Wing

 

It Was so

Wondrous

That I began

To Sing,

 

And I Sang,

"Glory To God

In The Highest

And The Earth

Peace, Good

Will To Men ~

For In Bethlehem

Today ~

God sent HIS Son

To show

People

The Life, The

Truth

And The Way.

 

Coming to me

Aug. 29, 1986

as I pack for California

(Chile)

 

 

 

GARDEN OF PRAYER

 

I go First In

The Morning

To The Garden

Of Prayer,

For I find

Good Beginnings

For a Wondrous

Day There.

 

 

 

KNOWING GOD

 

If Storm Come

Or The Shining

Sun...

All is but

Joy

In Knowing

The One. ~

 

 

 

 

GOD'S LEADINGS

 

The Sweetest Songs

Are Sung

To THEE.

The Greatest Thoughts

Of Men

Are Thine.

I pray that I May

Always See

In All That Guides

Me

THY Design.

 

Nov. 27, 1989

 

 

A BELL RANG

 

A Bell Rang On The Midnight Clear.

A Robin Sang a Song of Cheer.

A Star gleamed in the radiant Night,

Guiding the Shepherds in their flight.

In a Humble Cave a Donkey brayed,

and Mary said, "The World is saved."

 

 

 

 

WHEN YOUR VISION SEEMS LOST

 

When All in Your

Bright Vision

Seems lost

And Your life

Has been storm

Tossed ~ ~

Just of God's full

Armour

Put On All,

And HE Will Never

Let You Fall.

 

He Will Give You

The Grace Your

Every problem To

Face.

 

 

 

WE KNOW WHO IS LORD

 

We Know

Who Is Lord

Over All ~

And Who

Stands right

Now

Just Waiting

Our Call.

 

 

BABY GRACE

Every Day

Is a Special Day

Because of You,

Because of

Your Winning

Ways, and Your

Eyes of Blue.

 

You brought a

Piece of Heaven

When You

Came ~

And for The Miracle

Of You

We pause Each

Day

To Bless Our

Father's Name.

 

THE PROMISES OF GOD

 

 

He Knows ~ ~ and

This Thought

Brings to Me

The sweetest

Rest...

As though

In a Storm's

Lull a Bird

Has Flown

Straight to

It's Safe, Sure

Nest.

In All Things

God Knoweth

Best.

He does Know

Best.

He Knoweth

Best.

 

 

I AM WALKING IN HIS STRENGTH

 

I Am

Walking

In God's

Strength

Though

The Waves

Mount High

And The

Wind

Blows Through

My Hair.

Even as I Cry ~

My Cry is

Stilled,

As the Waves

Are Held at

Bay ~

For I have

Found His Peace

While Walking

In HIS Way.

 

 

 

ALL DAY LONG I SHALL BE WITH

JESUS

 

All day I shall be with Jesus.

An Talk with Jesus.

It will be all Joy

To My Heart, and when

The Day is over, We

Will not have to part.

 

For He keeps coming

Back to me and knocking

On My door. He Walks

With Me SO OFTEN

Now, ever more and more!

 

He is always so cheerful,

And HE always says, "Be not afraid."

For I am here.
