For I know the plans I have for you !

for I know the plans I have for you’, if you hold fast to Me.
I know there will be wonderful, if you have eyes to see.
I know there will be music, if you have ears to hear.
And I know there will be beautiful,
for God is ever near.

I know there will be trials too, and sorrows play a part,
But all is good, what’ ere may come, when Faith reigns in your heart.
‘for I know the plans I have for you’, if you hold fast to Me.
Nothing is impossible, and every dream can be.

Remnant

Broken people stumbling,
trying to find our way.
Lord help Your lambs to trust in You,
in all we do and say.

Help us all to bathe in Grace,
Discerning right from wrong.
Lead us,
guide us,
every step,
the weak to be made strong.

Not one of us is perfect,
and none of us is whole.
We need You Jesus every day,
Redeemer of the soul.

Help us in our Daily walk,
through shadows ever grey.
To grow,
to heal
Give thanks, and kneel,
humbled hearts to pray.

Everyone is broken,
and everyone is scarred.
Everyone has secret pain,
where clarity is marred.

And all so need my Savior,
to stand before the Throne.
Sanctify the sinners heart,
and lead the Remnant Home.

Elizabeth

2 Corinthians 12:9,
‘And He said unto me, My grace is sufficient for thee: for my strength is made perfect in weakness’.

Love Unseen

Sometimes Lord,
I can’t do anymore.
Think anymore.
Sink anymore….

Then I pray,
‘Just hold me,
enfold me,’
until the storms of my heart,
and the whirlpools in my mind
subside.

Do you know how much I need You?
Every day,
every way
that there is.

To see your Face,
feel Your Grace,
wash over me.
Hear You say,

‘Hey,
here I am.

Love unseen,
always been
by your side.’

and always Lord,
so tangled
and mangled

by living.
You lift me High,
help me fly,
forgiving.

Elizabeth


 

I Saw The Face Of Jesus

I saw the Face of Jesus,
when all the walls fell down.
I didn’t know just who He was,
and barely touched his gown.

I saw the Face of Jesus,
when Widowhood drew near,
He held His arms outstretched to me
and wiped away the tears.

‘Lo I am with you always.
Beginning and the End.
Will love you to Eternity,
The Comforter,

My Friend.
and

I saw the Face of Jesus,
while sitting in a plane.
He said ,‘I know your heartache.’
He said, ‘I know your pain‘.

He told me that He Loved me so,
and beckoned , ‘Come to me’.
Rest awhile beneath my wings
to ever strengthen thee.

Summer Mom

How blessed this Summer morning.
The gentle scented breeze.
Golden shafts of sunshine,
showered from the trees.
New life in the hedgerows,
blossom dancing round.
Drinking in the wonder,
where beautiful is found.

Looking up to rustling leaves,
against the bluest sky.
As overhead an Eagle soars
flies my spirit high.
Over velvet mountains,
fields of golden corn.
Fills my soul,
makes me whole,
and perfect peace is born.

For My Queen


Sixty years of Service.
Sixty years of life.
And in-between,
all goes unseen,
a mother and a wife.

No privacy to speak of,
an ever open book.
Idolized and criticized,
by all who stop to look.

Born into a no choice deal,
still learning how to be.
You bore the Crown of England,
Became ‘Her Majesty’.

Through wars, and threats, and scandals,
Unflinching in your role,
You have led our Country,
Given heart and soul.

Gracious Lady
Thank You,
for all you mean to me.
May God Bless,
with peace and rest,
this year of Jubilee.

Today

Today I felt your arms around me,
ever close and warm.
Knew that you would carry me,
throughout the coming storm.
Knew there would be better days,
brighter things in store.
And as I melted into You,
felt you Love me more.

Today I knew again my Lord,
none can get between.
Nothing here can steal my Joy,
the wonder of my dreams.
Nothing here can quite compare,
to all I feel for You.
How much you are part of me,
in all I try to do.

So bring it on,
and then be gone,
the heartache of life’s trials.
I have Greater things than this
to fill my heart with smiles.
Jesus stands with open arms.
Bathes me in God’s Grace.
Leads me ,daily, closer Home,
where I will find my place.

Today I felt your arms around me,
ever close and warm.
Knew that you would carry me ,
throughout the coming storm.
Knew there would be better days
brighter things in store.
And as I melted into You,
felt you Love me more.

The Widows Prayer

Dear Lord I pray ‘Be Still’,
Sufficient is this day.
Been here before, and will again,
You always make a way.

I count out every penny.
Pay the bills I can,
but sometimes, get so overwhelmed,
Forget You have a Plan.

Try so not to go there.
Keep my worries locked away,
but then they bubble late at night,
and steal all peace away.

Remind me Who is in control.
Remind me of my place,
and as I lay me down to sleep,
Fill me with Your Grace.

To pray for those with less than I.
To pray for those in pain.
To rest within Your Loving arms,
and Rise and Shine again.

Dear Lord I pray ‘Be Still’,
Sufficient is this day.
Been here before, and will again,
You always make a way.

Where

I know You have a plan for me,
but sometimes Lord just cannot see for clouds.
I know You hear my every prayer,
but sometimes Lord just wonder where
You are.

Its hard to always find a smile.
The strength to walk another mile.
The hope that one day, no more rain.
No more struggle no more pain,
and all You gave was not in vain,
so hard.

Lift my weary Spirit High,
Give me wings to rise and fly
I try, and try, and try and try,
and only You can see
the very core of me.

So Lord I pray with all I am,
for patience with my fellow man.
For courage just to stay the course,
with no regrets and no remorse.
Hope to see the sun shine through,
In all I am ,and all I do.

I know You have a plan for me,
but sometimes Lord just cannot see for clouds.
I know You hear my every prayer,
but sometimes Lord just wonder where
You are.

Such Love


I close my eyes
to see His Face.
So lost within His warm embrace.
And all the world just melts away,
this time, this place, this blessed day.

You come the times I need you most.
Father, Son and Holy Ghost.
And none can sway my Love for You,
nor height, nor depth, nor searing through,
the trials of life and death , so few
compared to all You gave.

And Christmas,
when my King came down.
Oh Holy night, without a sound.
Such precious Grace where none is found,
a lowly manger stall,
to die and bear it all.

You move my heart to blessed tears.
My soul unworthy through the years,
and yet You whisper ,’Here I am’.
Gentle Shepherd.
Wayward lamb.
And all that I so long to feel,
poured out, unending as I kneel
before the Cross, so started when,
such Love was born in Bethlehem.

'For unto us a child is born, unto us a child is given: and the goverment shall be on his shoulder;and his name shall be called Wonderful Councillor, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace.'

Spring



How Beautiful He doth adorn,
with Cherry Blossoms scenting dawn.
Hummingbirds to flit and fly
against the bluest crystal sky.
Daffodils, all shades of gold.
Hyacinth forever bold,
and every tree limb bursting new
to catch the silver morning dew.

How Glorious the Springtime air,
with softest breezes here and there.
Gentle warming of the Earth,
watching ,waiting for rebirth.
Confetti petals dancing down,
gently carpeting the ground.
Where Lily’s wait to take their place,
heralding such perfect Grace.

Alway


I have wondered through life’s tears.
Sometimes wandered in my fears.
Left your side from time to time.
Yet You insist,
‘This one is mine.’

I have doubted, fallen through.
Thought perhaps, You left me too.
Broken more times, than made new.
Yet You insist,
‘I so love you.’

I think of all You left behind.
Sacrificed, to lead the blind.
Knowing all the world would do,
and cannot help but Love You too.

I see my life, and see Your Hand.
So many miracles, unplanned.
So many times The world said ‘Done,’
Yet You insist,
‘I’ve got this one.’

So Dear Lord, I thank You so.
For all the times I let You go.
For all the times You carried me.
All the times I could not see.
Every sadness, every pain.
To find my Truth in You again.

A Woman Living Grace

May I be that ray of sunlight,
when the sky is overcast.
A petal from His Roses,
with fragrance made to last.
A hint of coming rainbows,
in the darkest Winter Storm,
and the softest pink horizon
to remind you of the Dawn.

Seeking out the wonderful,
with laughter on my face.
But most of all I pray to be,
A woman living Grace.

A child of God.
Friend to all.
Ever Loving heart.
Live my life with courage,
My God how Great Thou Art.
Dance to every melody.
Sing to every song.
Be the one to help you know
He Loved you all along.

Someday to help you see it too,
find a safer place.
But most of all I pray to be,
A woman living Grace.

May I be the one who never said,
‘I told you so my friend’.
May I be the one who always cared
beginning to the end.
The one who saw the good in all,
walked the extra mile.
Saw the Magic of His Plan,
and never lost her smile.

A hand to hold, when life grows old,
to finish up this race.
But most of all I pray to be,
A woman living Grace.

God Bless


God Bless us in the coming year,
with all the things our Lord holds dear.
An open heart and outstretched arms,
good health and safety from all harm.

Family and friends who care.
Enough to eat, enough to share.
A home to shelter, drawing nigh.
More laughter than the tears we cry,

and Peace,
within that private place
of Love
of Joy,
and precious Grace.

That God can always make a way
for every dream to have it’s day.

Wishing all a very Happy 2012,
Elizabeth.
