    Visions Of You! 

    deerbywater

    As I sit here thinking of you
    The sky reminds me of days a new

    The shelter you give holds me up
    The visions I see are to Glorify Thee

    The sun rise peeks in to say
    God gave you a brand new day.

    The visions of you keeps my heart content
    As the day goes on I stare at the sky
    Sometimes I look up to ask you why?

    But your love sustains me in the visions of you
    I see your hand as you make me new.

    O Lord keep those sky’s so pretty and blue
    help me see more visions of you.

    Softly you speak 

    listen
     
    Softly you speak as I rise this day

    As I wake the sun shines through.

    Please keep me safe this day as I pray to you.

    As I walk this walk through this day,

    keep me going and give me piece

    Hold my hand when I fail

    show me when I got off the trail.

    Lead me back to hear again

    Your soft voice within my heart,

    Your love sustains me in this day

    Please Lord keep me in your heart,

    Help me see you won’t depart,

    Guide my feet as I go

    To tell others how I love you so

    When the darkness speaks 

    watchover
     I wrote this while I was under trials in my life..

    When the darkness speaks in time of trial

    I feel like I’m fading and there is no tomorrow.

    When the darkness speaks I travel alone,

    so far deep down in a tunnel running away

    from darkness, sorrow drips from my heart,

    to hear me crying out is like a echo that leads

    to a fountain of deep despair,

    When the darkness speaks the sun goes low

    like a black hole so far down that I can’t find my

    way out.

    When the darkness speaks life seems long

    so long and so wide that my freedom seems

    to be taken in a flash, so my heart weeps for you

    Lord,to set me free from the pain inside,

    To keep your light bright so I can see

    you holding your hand out to pull me from

    the darkness deep inside.

    Flower-Petals-Falling

    Whispers of the petals

    I took a long walk
    To clear all my thoughts
    Nature speaks as I stroll a long

    I see the petals that fall a long the path
    The petals fall to the earth in wild colors of yellow
    Also gold seems to be there as the breeze carries them as I watch them float.

    As the weather changes With the sun
    The breeze out here carries them slowly down

    The whispers I hear as they touch the ground

    The petals fall and the birds fly
    I see the blue and the big sky.

    Critters scatter as they collect their gold
    Crickets chirp and things unfold

    Watch and listen
    Whispers will come
    Listen and hear all the natures call

    God made it all
    And it’s all talking to us

    As it whispers open your heart
    Listen to the petals
    Whisper as they fall
    Keep the colors where they land
    Inside your heart, where God’s love will never part..

    You are my Hiding Place! 

    scripture_violets_small

    When I feel like there is no way out,
    I run to Jesus, He is my hiding place.

    rest_small

    In this big rat race,
    I have thoughts of you
    You are my hiding place.

    all-things-r-possible-with-god-bible-quotes

    I retrace my steps
    As time goes on
    I know all is fine
    Because you are my hiding place.

    iplace

    As we go on things will fall into place
    As long as you are my hiding place.

    smallbible

    There is lots of space in my heart to love
    Your grace lifts me to the heaven above
    Help me keep you deep in my heart
    Because when I’m sad your so near
    Even when I feel your far
    You are still my hiding place..

    Deep in the valley of life and pain

    my heart sinks and things sting.

    Deep in the valley of strife and fear

    my heart is weak and never seems pure.

    Deep in the valley of sin and sorrow

    you give me a life and a new tomorrow.

    Deep in the valley where I walk day to day

    I search for your Hand to take me one way.

    Deep in the valley where I am alone at times

    only to find you near when I let go of fear.

    Deep in my heart is the valley of life

    your love for me Jesus keeps me living this day.

    Deep in the valley where I touch your sweet face

    I know I will win with your hand in mine.

    YOU Jesus are my valley,where I travel in time

    looking for your embrace and smelling the roses

    deep in my heart is your valley in me,

    take me home to the valley of heaven one day ,

    I will see a new one

    deep in the valley of life.

    The Water I Thirst For.. 

    HidingPlace_title

    At the well of life,

    my days get hard and the land

    I stand in is parched.

    The days get long and thirst builds up

    inside my soul,

    the water I thirst for is your love deep within,

    the water of life builds the life within,

    the water of love fills my soul deep inside,

    I take a stand with the water I thirst for,

    the land is dry until you take me in your arms

    and you give me the water I thirst for.

    You take my hand and my days,

    you revive my mind,

    you give me the water I thirst for,

    so deep inside my soul,

    I long for your touch,

    oh, how I  love you so much,

    you are the water I thirst for.
