Jesus And A Lamb

Jesus is the Lamb Pictures, Images and Photos

I have a painting on my hearth,
Jesus and a lamb.
When I feel like giving up,
it reminds me who I am,
Tells me He will Carry me,
when I can walk no more.
When I am faint, He Stands for me,
to open one more door.
It reminds me of a Greater Love,
than any I have known.
Always holding onto me,
pierced hands to lead me Home.
Always saying, ‘don’t quit now
Have I not brought you far,
I Am , you can, because of me,
and I know where you are.’
Lay all your burdens down this night
in My Arms to rest.
Be assured you are My Lamb,
and know that you are Blessed.

I So Pray

Another work week,
let me be,
all the things you ask of me.
Ever joyful, shining true
not of self, but all of You.
If I am wronged,
may I forgive,
bearing Jesus as I live.
May I see,
the good in all.
Catch me Father,
when I fall.
Another work week,
I so pray,
Your gentle Glory,
every day.

I Am


Call me a Fool for Jesus,
I don’t really care.
Nothing else is worth a light,
unless His Light is there.
I don’t want to settle,
for less than knowing Him.
and,
I sure need a Savior
To wash away my sin.

So very far from perfect.
So very far from Home.
I wouldn’t want to be here,
without Him on the Throne.
Nothing else makes any sense,
without The Fathers Plan,
so call me a Fool for Jesus
and I will smile,
I am.

Reflection


I am not worldly,
not at all people smart.
Take quite the bruising,
wearing this heart.

Honest and open,
tender and deep.
Full of compassion,
for all that I meet.

Sometimes just shredded,
salted and burned,
but here is a lesson,
I long ago learned.

My Father once told me,
So wise and so kind.
Look into the mirror,
Do you like who you find?

Did you give all you could?
Have you lived at your best?
Then go to your heart,
Find Jesus, and rest.

By Grace

To everything a reason,
A Season of its own.
I think about it all sometimes,
when I feel far from Home.

How far we’ve come,
The Race to run.
The how and why and who.
Then I can smile,
Give Thanks a while,
it all comes back to You.

Life knocks me down
You Raise me up,
Sunshine in the rain.
When I am lost, You find me,
to draw me nigh again.

When I am weak,
You gird my heart.
When I am spent, renew,
Remind me who I really am,
and all that I should do.

Let go, let God,
Go be a Voice,
and all that I can be.
Play my part,
His Love, my heart,
by Grace, Eternally.

Yearning



Sometimes I write for His Names Sake.
Sometimes, I write for me,
To know my God is listening,
and In Him I am Free.

Free from all the heartache,
The world, and all its pain.
Free to dance.
Free to sing.
To be a child again.

Free to walk the meadows,
Feel the breezes blow.
Drinking in the Mountains,
Gaze at stars and know.

Our God is ever close at hand.
Our God is ever real.
Our God who made the universe,
Can Bless, Possess and Heal.

So Lord I ask for healing,
Such a sickness in our land.
Strengthen me,
That I may be,
an ever ready hand.

Bathe me in the wonder,
Untainted, pure and sweet.
A Child of God, unkempt, unshod,
with grass beneath her feet.

Heart Cry



‘If We've ever needed You,’
I heard the song today.
Thought about your trials,
closed my eyes to pray.

We think we are forsaken.
We feel so all alone,
but when we give it all to Him,
He gently leads us Home.

‘If We've ever needed You’
Every single day.
Every single moment.
Every single way.

So many times we crumble.
So many times we fall.
‘If We've ever needed You’
The Heart Cry of us all.

Tomorrow


I don’t know about tomorrow.
Just one day at a time.
Sometimes Lord I feel my life
is such an uphill climb
At other times I know it’s just
The Enemy at play.
Help me Father to stay strong,
and send him on his way.

I know that I am truly blessed,
by health and heart and soul.
and all the rest is nothing much,
just human worldly goals.
So help me when I’m weary.
Lift me when I’m weak.
Remind me who I am in You,
whenever sorrows speak.

and always Jesus, full of Love.
At all times full of Grace.
Every minute, every day,
Blessed to see Your Face.
I don’t know about tomorrow.
only one day at a time.
But I do know my heart is Yours,
and Your heart nurtures mine.
