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.
