His Thunders Roll
Inside My Soul

If I can hear You in the distance
Of the thunder's mighty roll;
Then SURELY I can hear You
In the depth's of my own soul.
For, it's when I reach inside myself
That Your love shall unveil;
The riches of YOUR Kingdom ~
At the bottom of my well!
Like a treasure buried deep within
And hidden from all view;
Where Hope awaits and Glory dwells
And Mercy's ALWAYS New!
So, today, I'll just dig deeper
Than I've ever dug before;
And I will not stop til I have reached
BEYOND the valley's floor.
And when it's all been said and done
I'll find my heart could HEAR;
The Thunders Roll, Inside My Soul
Drawing YOU, so ever near!

Ashes To Beauty

In the solace of the morn
God's Grace WILL be ENOUGH;
To breathe love's hope upon my heart
And overflow my cup!
And even in my darkest night
I have ALREADY won;
For He is with me, IN the fight
To help me overcome!
And when the evenings ended
HIS victory WILL be MINE;
And from the ashes, I will rise
To greet the morning sun!
For death can NEVER swallow
The peace my heart does hold;
Nor keep me bound from heaven's light
That shines upon my soul.
Instead, His Grace WILL keep me
And love's hope WILL lead me through;
Until the evening fades to morn ~
Where Mercy's ALWAYS New!!!

Garden Of Praise

If I could peer through love's perspective
Then I would SEE a tiny seed;
Traveling ever upward
Toward the Father's feet.
I'd SEE my praise begin to water
The seed within my soul;
And I'd SEE the breath of worship
Come and cause the seed to grow!
Then I'd SEE His precious Spirit,
Give favored access to the seed;
To break through hardened ground
Buried deep down inside of me.
And soon I'd SEE a tender sprout
Turn it's face to look above
Bathed within the sonshine
Of the Father's grace and love!
What was once a tiny seed,
NOW, blossoms to full bloom;
Ever reaching out to Jesus
Through my praise that's pressing through!
Now, planted on the landscape
Upon the hillside of God's gaze;
Becomes a flower in God's Garden
Rising UP to give Him praise!

The Sound Of Silent Wings

Thunder rumbled quietly thoughout the open sky;
As if the Lord was speaking, and I began to cry.
I could see so clearly, HIS Glory from above;
As heaven washed the shoreline and kissed my mom with love.
I heard The Sound Of Silent Wings, flutter in the breeze;
And saw the shimmer of the light, dance atop the trees.
Like a silouette ascending, across the ocean tide;
The sound just seemd so silent, the moment that she died.
Whisp of rays did capture, the colors of the sky;
And beauty, filled with wonder, softly touched the tears I cried.
In a moment, life abandoned, and joy's song DID sing;
"Amazing Grace, How Sweet The Sound ~ That Saved A Wretch Life Me!"
And in the Spirit, I did SEE, the love that Glory brings,
For in the silence, I DID hear, The Sound Of Silent Wings!

Piercing The Darkness

A Tribute To 9-11-01

A Day To Remember ~ And NEVER Forget,
When lives were surrendered, and hearts took a hit.
Oh, for the Grace, that cover the wounds,
Of heartache and break, for each life consumed.
With only a pinpoint of God's shining light;
Hope pierces the darkness and shatters the night.
His hand, outreaching, through perilous times;
Bring comfort and peace as He breathes forth new life.
You see, none of us know, what tomorrow may bring;
But no matter WHAT, we'll continue to sing.
For fully aware, is our God on the throne;
Of the death hatred brings, when it tries to control.
And even though, we, cannot see through the veil;
God's impending justice, will SURELY prevail.
The sunrise WILL break and bring forth the dawn;
As light shatters darkness ~ Giving HOPE to go on!

To Live Where Glory Dwells

Imagine for a moment Heaven's hope of love portrayed;
As the stars explode in brilliance Across God's Universe Displayed!
Where, in the Spirit, man can SEE The outstretched hand of God;
And in the gathered crowd, is heard ~ The thunder of applause!
For Heaven's Light NOW dawns the day Upon the distant shore;
And in the sunshine of HIS gaze Love shines FOREVERMORE!
Oh, for GRACE, that leads the one Beyond the clouded veil;
And ushers IN, God's beckoned call To Live Where Glory Dwells!

Window To The Womb And The Child Within

Window To The Womb And The Child Within
God looked inside the window, of a mother's empty womb
And created life to come alive, as seed turned into bloom.
He breathed His breath upon the child and gave the heart it's beat
He formed a tiny miracle ~ with little hands and feet.
You see, growing in seclusion, is the mystery of GOD'S plan
The gift of His perfection, to fulfill the heart of man.
If we could see INSIDE the womb, our hearts would surely know
The depth of love our God displays, inside this tiny soul.
For truly there's NO treasure, any greater in God's Eyes
Than the love for His creation and the breath that gives them life.
So, may our hearts hold precious, what is sanctified by Him
And fight for life INSIDE the womb ~ and the child that lives within!

Grace Shakes Loose The Shackles

I looked into the heavens and I saw the clouds unfold
I Saw The Majesty Of Glory ~ And God, the Father, On The Throne.
I could not believe the beauty of ALL my eyes did see
It was beyond words of description of anything my mind could dream!
I saw millions bowing down before the Glory of the Lord
And then, everything fell silent ~ and I HEARD, the chamber door!
I witnessed the accuser proudly strutting down the isle
He was so evil in appearance, with a mocking kind of smile.
Behind him, walked a prisoner, with shackled hands and feet
Escorted roughly by hell's demons ~ and then I SAW that it was ME!
I'd been dragged into the courtroom, to stand before the Judge
I could not lift my head to look, but I was ordered to STAND UP.
The accuser made his case as the demons laughed and jeered
But the peace of God enveloped me and overshadowed every fear.
It was then my heart was lifted, and in the Glory Realm I SAW
The very person, of my JESUS, emerging FROM the heart of God!
Now, He stood between the Father and the accuser of my soul;
With love's passion, He defended me, as He took complete control.
The Judge upon His chamber seat slammed His gavel down
And pronounced the words, "NOT GUILTY, is the verdict I have found!"
I just stood there for a moment, in a state of shock and awe
I had witnessed Heaven's Glory and heard the heartbeat of my God!
The accuser, in his anger, spewed his venom forth
As he crouched in hostile anger, defeated by the Lord!
And then I heard the FATHER say, "Before YOU leave My Throne,
Give BACK what YOU have stolen ~ return it NOW, a hundred fold!"
The shackles that had held me, were NOW replaced with royal robes
MY heart had been replenished standing THERE, before God's Throne!
And then, in just and instant, I saw myself AGAIN
Standing BACK, upon the earth, contemplating WHERE I'd been!
I won't forget HIS presence, as I stood before His Throne
As I watched Him intercede with LOVE, for ALL that are His own!
In His Realm Of Glory, I truly SAW His Heart For Me
As Grace Shook Loose The Shackles ~ broke the locks and set me FREE!

Robin's Song

I stepped upon the wings of wind and soared to higher heights;
My spirit man was lifted UP, and I saw God's Treasured Prize!
I was so grateful for His promise, to hold on and not let go;
To take me THROUGH deaths shadow, and set my feet on streets of gold.
To lift my eyes unto the throne, where the hope of life lives on;
And to know, my faith, has stood the test, and NOW I'm finally home.
You see, I ran the race marked out for me, I kept my eyes on Him;
My faith grew ever stronger ~ I was a Champion To The End!
And when I crossed the finish line, the crowd began to cheer;
Heaven's gates had opened, and I was finally here!
I was ushered into Glory, hand in hand with God's Own Son;
Love had been triumphant, in the race that I had run.
I saw my Father's outstretched arm and the love within His smile
I heard Him say the words, "Well Done" AND "Welcome Home My Child!"
Life had conquered death, through Love's Amazing Grace;
And Victory now gave BREATH, to the sound of heaven's praise.
Oh for love that carried me, and breathed sweet peace within;
To run the race marked out for me and keep me to the end.
And in the whisper of the wind, my heart WILL carry on;
To sing the praise of God within ~ Upon The Robin's Song!

The Promised Prize

I stood before the MOUNTAIN, that shadowed ore my life;
And I could not dare imagine, how I would have the strength to clmb.
I was completely overwhelmed and my heart DID question "Why"
"How could I reach the summit, that towers 'neath' the sky?"
In an instant of a moment, my faith began to rise;
My heart eclipsed in Glory and I was given wings to fly!
I soared ABOVE the mountain peak, high atop the trees;
Secure upon the thermal, of God's ever gentle breeze.
It was in that place, my heart explored, the faithfulness of God;
To raise me up, from where I'd been, and place me where I was!
Beyond the realm of reasoning, caught away to heights unknown ;
Summoned to the boundaries that encircle heaven's throne.
Through HIS eyes, my heart DID see, a vast array of ALL;
The treasures waiting just for me, upon the mountain top.
No longer will I fear the climb that towers 'neath' the sky;
Instead, I'll scale the rugged trail, Until I Reach The Promised Prize!

Towering Ever Upward

The mighty trees stand straight and tall, upon the forest floor;
Towering Ever Upward, reaching up toward heaven's shore!
All together, like an army, they surround the seedling trees;
And shield them from the elements, meant to steal THEIR destinies!
Like fingers intermingled, they make a canopy for those;
Beneath provision of their covering; so they, too, will surely grow.
For OUTSIDE the forest floorline, the seedling is alone;
Completely open to the elements, and harsh wild winds that blow.
Every day they face such struggles, isolated from the rest;
Their roots have no great depth and they often fail life's test.
You see, the rains are overwhelming, to the seedling all alone;
And it's unbearable to fathom, they could reach toward heaven's throne!
Hope cannot give solace, inside the raging storm;
Nor against the blistering rays, that torch the very ground they're on.
Oh, but for the seedlings, sheltered 'neath' the towering trees;
Where life can gain it's substance and tiny buds turn into leaves!
And then one day, they too will be, ones that line the forest floor;
Towering Ever Upward ~ Giving Glory To The Lord!

Eyes To See

Give me eyes to see, Oh God
Beyond the outer realm;
Into the possibilities
Where true love's hope is found.
Inside Your sanctuary
Hidden deep within my soul;
In that place of inner worship
And GRACE to big to hold!

Marvelous Love

God lifted me out of the place I was
And put me on solid ground;
He shifted my feet with His most tender touch
And I stood in His Heavenly Realm!
Oh, for the sight my eyes did behold
As I entered the place where He was;
Words can't explain nor can they express
The depth of His Marvelous Love!

The Empty Chair

How often I've forgotten
The meaning of the years;
Until I faced the unexpected
Through the loss of someone dear.
Then I wished for just ONE moment more
To love and laugh and share;
Instead I find that I am faced
With a Quiet Empty Chair.
AS I approach this time of sadness
And grief beyond compare;
I come before Your Throne, Lord
And humbly bow in prayer.
I trust that You will lead me
Through this overwhelming loss;
May Your Spirit give me eyes
To remain focused on the Cross.
I know I can't stop living ~
I have to trust You EVERYDAY;
So I put my heart in YOUR hands
And ask YOU to show the way.
I know that, Jesus, You're the reason
I can hold my head up high;
I'm reminded of the Father's Heart
When He had to watch YOU die.
I pray this season will bring NEW life
In my heartache's deep despair;
And that You will give me comfort
As I face The Empty Chair!

It's A Wonderful Life

Imagine for a moment, if our world had been denied;
Of the Father's ONLY Son ~ the Gift Of Jesus Christ!
If the Savior that God sent us had NEVER come to save;
We'd be lost in sin FOREVER ~ Without His light to guide our way!
Our lives would be so different without Jesus in our hearts;
Without His love to guide us and His forgiveness to impart.
We'd have NO hope for living nor victory when we die;
We'd spend eternity in darkness, with constant torment as our guide.
It's such a sobering thought ~ What Would Our Lives Be Like;
WITHOUT the birth of Jesus and His sacrifice of life?
Aren't we glad the truth IS, that Jesus came to save;
That His life has made a difference and OUR destiny was changed?
For so many hearts are touched by the life of JUST one man;
From the beginning of His birth until His coming back again!
Because that babe was born in a stable long ago;
An entire world was changed and New Life for US bestowed!

The Glory Of God's Son

Light Of Revelation ~ Glory Of Israel
Hope for every nation, the Father's son unveiled.
Angel's in the highest, proclaiming praise to Him
Jesus Christ, the Savior, born this day in Bethlehem.
The Lamb Of God, Messiah, The Bright And Morning Star;
God's Grace forever flowing, from the depths of heaven's heart.
Good News of man's salvation, spread to shepherd's in the field.
Who listened to the angel and journeyed to the place revealed.
There, lying in a manager, was a baby wrapped in cloth
And a host of heaven's angels, sang their praises unto God.
Glory to the Father ~ Peace On Earth To Men
A Savior sent from heaven, to redeem the world from sin.
King Of Kings, Emmanuel, the hope of ALL to come
The Light Of Heaven's Promise ~ The Glory Of God's Son.
Yes, the Lamb Of God, Messiah, The Bright And Morning Star
God's Grace forever flowing, from the depths of heaven's heart.

The Crimson Rose

If you are looking for a great Christmas gift, consider my daily devotional book. Along with your Bible reading, my book provides Christian encouragement 365 days a year.

Long, long ago, in a field far away
Wrapped in swaddling clothes;
God gave to man, His ONE Greatest Gift
As He breathed on The Crimson Rose.
And unto us, this child was born
Beneath the glory of heaven's sky;
As love took to flight on angels wings
And worship arose in the night.
A heavenly fragrance danced on the dew
And the stars radiated with light;
All of creation instinctively knew
That the world's Greatest Gift had arrived.
Jesus, the hope of ALL nations
The Redeemer, the Savior, the King;
God's Grace so divinely delivered
Beneath the shelter of angels wings.
Yes, long, long ago, in a field far away
Wrapped in swaddling clothes;
God gave to man, His ONE Greatest Gift
As He breathed on The Crimson Rose!

The air was still, the breeze was crisp
On that chilly winter morn;
My heart had just been pierced
By a hurtful prickly thorn.
I stood before the window pane
Seeking solace in the peace;
When I spied a gorgeous Cardinal
Nestled safely in a tree.
His little tiny figure
Was like crimson in the snow;
God had sent a gift from heaven
Touched my heart and gave me HOPE!
You see, ONLY God can understand
The daily perils I go through;
He cares about each heartache
Every tattered place and bruise.
But in the midst of turmoil
I find Him faithful day to day;
To exhibit tiny miracles
That give me hope along life's way.
He shows Himself in little things ~
And allows me to behold;
The love He holds inside, for ME ~
Painted Crimson In The Snow!

Christ Child

This poem is from my daily devotionals book Seeds of Hope. Enjoy this and many more like it each morning.

To find the little Christ Child, the wise men traveled far
They kept their eyes upon the sky and their focus on the star.
It led them to the promise of all that was to come;
This one who's name was Jesus ~ the Blessed Holy One!
They brought their gifts before Him and laid them at His feet;
And then presented Him with offerings, reserved alone for Kings.
They witnessed heaven's glory and the Father's grand display;
Of His love for all mankind on earth and His never ending grace.
This little Christ Child, Jesus - God's perfect gift to you and me;
Redemption to a fallen world, to all who will believe.
Yes, Jesus IS the promise for all that is to come;
For the blessed gift God gave us, was His one and ONLY Son!
Today, wise men STILL seek Him and offer Him their hearts;
And the light of Christ burns in them much like the aged star.
Yes, Christ is STILL the gift to all, willing to receive
Unending life in glory ~throughout ALL eternity.

Christ is where the joy IS,
The anointed man of God;
He's a Prophet, Priest and King,

His voice like the thunders
Rides upon the wind;
He exhorts and lifts the lowly
And He comforts hearts of men.
He paid my debts completely
And now He lives in me;
He's given me the power
To walk in HIS authority.
You see, My Father made a covenant
With Christ upon the cross;
And NOW, I receive the benefits,
Of an inheritance in God.
His Blood became the victory
That restores, loves and redeems;
Christ has truly paid the ULTIMATE ~
He IS the King Of Kings!

If you died tonight, my friend, would heaven be your home;
Do you know without a doubt, that you are destined for the throne?
Has God's Spirit shed His light on you, and caused your eyes to see;
The sacrifice of Jesus ~ paid upon the cross, to set you free?
Do you understand, my friend, that He's the ONLY way;
To enter heaven's glory, when you reach that final day?
Will you be ready on that day, to stand before His throne;
Stripped of all possessions and all the worldly things you own?
When it's only YOU and HIM, standing face to face;
Will you tremble in fear shaking, or will you run to His embrace?
When the Father looks upon you, will He see His Son in YOU;
Have you made a choice for Jesus, a committment through and through?
Will you enter heaven's glory when your time on earth is done;
Are you walking IN the grace, freely given by God's Son?
My friend, it only takes a moment, to bow your heart and pray;
To humbly receive Jesus and give your life to Him today!
You see, TODAY, is all you have ~ for tomorrow may NOT come;
So, TODAY, may you choose wisely, the eternal gift of God's Own Son!

Depth of God's Solace

This poem is from my daily devotionals book Seeds of Hope. Enjoy this and many more like it each morning.

Deep in the depths of God's Secret Place
Secure at the foot of His throne;
Where God conquers all and love is released;
And the wild tempest winds cease to blow.
Where mercy and grace cover like dew
And wash ALL of the heartache away;
Where God breathes the breath of fragrant perfume.;
And restores every wound from it's pain.
Oh, for the solace in the presence of God
To rest where security reigns;
Deep in the Depths Of God's Secret Place
Where Love conquers heartache and pain.

God Still Holds The Hearts Of Men

In my daily devotional book Seeds of Hope you are led through an inspired word of encouragement, faith, and trust in the Lord. Enjoy this poem taken from the devotional poems of Seeds of Hope.

I witnessed in my spirit, Jesus touch a blackened coal;
And the fire from it's depth became an embers glow.
It's like I saw the Heart Of Man and I watched with my own eyes;
The awesome power of God, conquer death and bring forth life.
It only took a moment until I saw this heart ablaze;
And in an instant, all the chaff, was consumed inside the flame.
Man's heart had triumphed gloriously within the final hour;
As the spirit of the living God breathed forth His awesome power.
The stench of death's harsh sting, like a shadow in the night;
Disappeared into the darkness, upon the wings of flight.
NOW, the fragrance of the lilly from the blowing of God's breath;
Has awakened man from slumber and delivered him from death.
Then I saw the Heart of Man like an open treasure box;
Filled with sparkling gems and jewels, and precious gifts of God.
My eyes were turned to heaven and I fell upon the floor;
My heart felt it would burst in the pressence of the Lord.
Oh, what joy did fill my soul, such love I can't explain;
It goes beyond ALL limits, of what I'm able to obtain.
It's like the fire, of man's heart, BEGINS inside of ME;
And burns a blaze of glory, for ALL the world to see.
NOW, my eyes behold His splendor as I journey through this land;
And I'm convinced, without a doubt, God Still Holds The Hearts Of Men!

Only God Can Touch A Heart

Enjoy this excerpt from my book Seeds of Hope. If you like my poems, I encourage you to pick up a copy for your daily devotions. Along with with Bible reading and prayer, this book will speak to your soul through poem.

Oh God, how can You comfort
The depth of one's own soul;
How can You take a 'missing piece'
And ever make it whole?
How can You ever take away
The loss of someone dear;
How can You breathe upon a heart
Or wipe away a tear?
How can You heal the brokeness
That's birthed inside of pain;
Or wash away the sorrow
That has left a darkened stain?
Oh God, how can a life sustain
And ever make it through;
Without the power of Your love
Or the hope that's found in You?
For only You can mend a heart
That has to say "Goodbye"
And only You can truly know
The depth of pain inside.
Lord, Only You, can win the war
That battles ore the soul;
And Only You Can Touch A Heart
And EVER make it whole!

Little Foxes Spoil The Vine

This poem is from my daily devotionals book Seeds of Hope. Enjoy this and many more like it each morning.

Before the dawn of sunshine's rays
In the twilight of the morn;
Thieves have come to steal away
My blessings from the Lord.
So subtle in their presence
And shifty in their ways
It's hard to even recognize
What they've taken day to day.
It's like they're little foxes
Stealing grapes upon the vine;
Removing beauty from the vineyard
And taking what is mine.
I've come to see these little foxes
Disquised as 'offense' in my life;
And when I almost catch them
They come and take ANOTHER bite.
It's up to ME to guard my heart
And the fruit upon the vine;
And to STOP these little foxes
From stealing what is mine.
I MUST stand against each offense
Sent to steal away;
The blessings of each promise
That God has sent my way.
And somewhere in the process
I WILL reclaim what's mine;
And I'll STOP those little foxes ~
Sent my way to spoil the vine!

Facets Of Beautiful

If you are looking for a great Christmas gift, consider my daily devotional book. Along with your Bible reading, my book provides Christian encouragement 365 days a year.

There are facets to Your beauty, Lord,
That I've YET to behold;
And every time I look at You,
Something NEW unfolds.
Now I know why angels
Fall down before the Throne;
Crying, "Holy, Holy, Holy"
With revelation being shown.
I'm sure that EVERY time
They arise upon their feet;
They see ANOTHER side of You,
That they have NEVER seen!
And AGAIN they fall in Glory
To worship You, anew;
And this continues on FOREVER ~
EVERY time they look at You.
To think that one day soon
I'LL see with eyes unveiled;
The facets of Your beauty
In the heart of heaven's realm.
And only THEN, in Glory,
Could truth dare to unfold;
That FOREVER, cannot capture ~
ALL the facets Your love holds!

Lord, Only Your Amazing Grace
Could hold this heart of mine
Next to the bosom of Your Love
And stop the ache of time.
And, Only You, could breathe within
The fragrance of the dew;
And raise me up from where I am,
To live my life in YOU!
Lord, Only You, could touch the pain
And heal my burdened soul;
With Love's Refreshing Breath Of Rain
Sent forth to ease my load.
And, Only You, could fight for me
Through the promise of Your peace;
Beyond the depth of solitude,
Where deep calls unto deep!
Yes, Only You, are able Lord
To breathe upon my soul;
Where comfort rides on angels wings
And heartbreak yields to HOPE!

Bountiful Crop
Provide me direction in the way of my walk
And favor for those I will meet;
Prepare every heart and make ready
To receive an abundance of seed!
Help me to scatter in season
A harvest of that which WILL come;
An extravagant portion of bounty
To be planted and watered in love.
Oh, for the grace You have given
And deposited deep within me;
To follow the path of my journey
Entrusted by YOU to sow seed.
Help me, Oh Lord, to be faithful
And walk where You call me to walk;
Breathe on the seed that I've planted
And through it, bring a most Bountiful Crop!

Hourglass of Time
Every life is temporal,
Yet so many walk in vain;
Unprepared to cross the shoreline
Where Heaven's Glory reigns.
But ONE day, it WILL happen,
In the twinkling of an eye;
In an instant, without notice,
One LAST breath and THEN ~ you die.
It's to late to make decisions
When that FINAL moment comes
There WON'T be a time of pleading,
When your life on earth is done.
The time for choosing Jesus
And receiving Him, by FAITH;
Is made upon LIFE'S journey
And the road you choose to take.
Some deceptive ones may tell you,
There are other ways to God;
But, be you NOT deceived,
For our God will NOT be mocked.
His scripture plainly tells us
That JESUS is the WAY;
And ONLY through the Son Of God
Can a man be TRULY saved!
So, as the sand runs quickly
Through the Hourglass Of Time;
May your heart be found in JESUS
Before you cross life's finish line!

Piercing The Darkness
A Tribute To 9-11-01
A Day To Remember ~ And NEVER Forget,
When lives were surrendered, and hearts took a hit.
Oh, for the Grace, that cover the wounds,
Of heartache and break, for each life consumed.
With only a pinpoint of God's shining light;
Hope pierces the darkness and shatters the night.
His hand, outreaching, through perilous times;
Bring comfort and peace as He breathes forth new life.
You see, none of us know, what tomorrow may bring;
But no matter WHAT, we'll continue to sing.
For fully aware, is our God on the throne;
Of the death hatred brings, when it tries to control.
And even though, we, cannot see through the veil;
God's impending justice, will SURELY prevail.
The sunrise WILL break and bring forth the dawn;
As light shatters darkness ~ Giving HOPE to go on!

Hope's Promise
Hope ALWAYS comes in the midst of a trial,
It's God's promised way of escape;
Just when you feel, you can't go one more mile
Hope opens the door of God's Grace.
For faith can not grow on the inside of you
If you bypass the valley below;
But no matter the battle, you'll make it through
When you get to the fork in the road!
So, hold your head high in the midst of your trial
And WAIT for HIS promised escape;
Lean on His love, as you go the next mile;
And Never Let Go Of His Grace!

Breath of Redeeming Love
Lord, how can You love the unlovely,
Those who are lost in their sin?
How can You ever be faithful,
Over and Over AGAIN?
If only I had the perspective
To see with YOUR eyes and NOT mine;
Then maybe I realize Your Love,
Reaches far beyond reason and rhyme!
Help me to grasp the TRUE meaning
Accomplished by YOU, on the cross;
The depth of Your love and compassion,
To redeem every heart that is lost.
Stir up Your Spirit within me;
Lord, open my blind eyes to see;
The power of Hope's Sweet Redemption
To caputre and set sinners FREE.
Lord, open up Your Gates Of Glory,
Draw the weary and lost to Your Throne;
Shine heaven's light in their journey,
And bid them, by faith, to come home!
Wash every heart that is hurting,
And let then know YOU are enough;
Softly whisper Your blessed assurance
Through YOUR Breath Of Redeeming Love!
Terese Holloway

My Light For You
Could I be the difference
That someone else sees;
Could my light bring life
To that ONE on their knees?
You see, I my never know
Who is looking at me;
Hoping to find
Simple answers they need.
So, I WILL take time
In the way that I live;
To be aware ALWAYS
Of WHAT I can give.
And if for some reason
My light shines for YOU;
I hope God will use it,
To help guide YOU through!

Solitude Of Grace
Underneath Your canopy,
In the shadow of Your wings;
My heart seeks peaceful refuge,
nd the solace Your love brings.
Deep within the crevasse
And Your Solitude Of Grace;
Where the voice of condemnation
Cannot have a resting place.
Where hopes and dreams are possible
In the presence of Your love;
And hope cannot be shattered,
Nor yield to the corrupt. Lord,
I have a desperate need To live within YOUR Hiding Place;
Beneath the shadow of Your wings,
Within YOUR Solitude Of Grace.

God's Favor Of Grace
Grace is God's favor that cannot be bought;
A gift of sweet savor, freely given by God.
An inexhaustible mercy, with the power to live;
And incredible lifestyle, to overcome sin!
His Grace does enable, the path to be walked;
To live in a manner, that is pleasing to God.
Grace is His comfort that blankets the soul;
That washes the heart, restores and makes whole.
Yes, Grace IS God's Favor That CANNOT Be Bought;
A Gift Of Sweet Savor, FREELY Given By God!

A Corpsman's Heart
(This poem written for my son, Clint, a Navy Corpsman,
and what he experienced on the battlefield)
.My job as a Navy Corpsman was to do ALL that I could do
Upon the field of battle, to help others make it through.
But there were times that even I, had NO role to play
For death would come to ravage and steal a life away!
In anguish I cried out ~ "Oh, Where are YOU, my God"
"Why have you left me helpless, in this battle being fought?"
In confusion I felt anger as I watched another die
For I could not understand, and there was no time to cry.
Now, the battlefield's behind me, only memories plague my mind
My heart is slowly mending through God's comfort that I find.
You see, I KNOW that He was with me, He NEVER left my side
And HE, too, was with my comrads, the moment that THEY died.
So even though it's difficult to understand it all
I will NOT turn my back on Him, nor run away from God.
For someday He WILL tell me ~ WHY it had to be,
Why others died in my arms, yet no harm came to me.
MAYBE God selected ME, to comfort, soothe and calm
Until He, Himself, could come, and wrap them in HIS arms.
So for, WHATEVER reason, my heart will lean on Him
For HIS ways are not my ways and MY ways are not His!
Yes, Only Jesus has the answers ~ Only HE will hold the key
To everything in THIS life, that takes it's burdened toll on me!
And even though I do not know, the reason nor the rhyme;
I know that God is healing ~ my heart, my soul, my mind!
And upon this earthly journey, I'm always sure to know;
That my God will not leave me, and I'll NEVER walk alone!
You see, He's Forever Faithful no matter WHERE I am;
He holds my life securely, and I am Safe Within HIS Plan!

Peace Within The Shadows
There's no grief any greater than giving up a son;
No hiding place to hold you ~ nor anywhere to run!
For sorrow comes to blanket, like a canopy of gloom;
And heartache pierces depths, in order to consume.
But even In The Midst Of Battle, the Father watches ALL;
He sees the soldier in the field and He hears him when he calls.
He disperses angels instantly to watch over and stand guard;
And He even has a few to come and tend MY aching heart.
He sends HIS truth to penetrate and He illuminates the night;
He takes the darkness of my soul and turns it into light.
He causes me to boldly stand where others dare not go;
Inside the realm of battle ~ like a pilgrim far from home.
My feet are firmly planted because God's promises are sure;
He will NEVER put more on me than I'd be able to endure.
So, In The Midst Of Battle, I'll be faithful at my post;
And I will trust my son to Jesus ~ God's Everlasting Hope!

The Morning Dawn
I stand before the window pane and observe the Morning Dawn;
I watch the light erase the darkness until it's every trace is gone.
I hear the tiny sparrows as they begin to sing;
And I'm reminded winters faded and NOW it's time for spring.
Then my thoughts are quicly shifted to a foreign distant shore;
Where my son fights in a battle, engaging in the realm of war.
My mother's heart is tender but I know it's also strong;
For my trust in in the ONE who is faithful with the dawn.
I know God's shining light will erase the darkness there;
As He liberates oppression upon the wings of prayer.
I know that those delivered will have a heart to sing;
When HOPE becomes THEIR vision, and THEY can see the blooms of spring.
So, I stand before GOD'S Window Pane and observe with eyes to see;
All that God is doing to come and set a nation free.
And as long as fighting lingers, may my son be ever strong;
Always trusting in the ONE ~ Who brings the Morning Dawn.

2 Chronicles 7:14
If my people, who are called
by my name, will humble themselves
and pray and seek my face
and turn from their wicked ways,
then will I hear from heaven
and will forgive their sin
and will heal their land.

 

STANDING UPON HER KNEES
Terese Holloway
Released July 3rd, 2010

(Read 2 Chronicles 7:14)
Today, Oh Lord, we humble ourselves ~
We seek Your mercy and Your face;
We come as a nation before You ~
Beneath Your wings of unfailing grace.
We ask that You would forgive us
Of our rampant and blatant sins;
Touch our hearts, Oh Lord, with Your presence
And let the light of Your love shine again.
Be the covering that shelters our nation ~
May we rest in the palm of Your hand;
Hear us, Oh Lord, from heaven ~
And bring YOUR healing upon this land.
We cry out, Oh God, for FREEDOM
We turn from our wicked ways ~
We repent as a nation before You
And choose to follow You all of our days.
Touch our hearts today by Your Spirit
Comfort, bring healing and soothe;
Release victory, Oh Lord, out of chaos
Draw hearts of lost men ~ back to You.
Lord, YOU are the light that shines in us
And we pray ALL of the world will see;
That America is ALWAYS her strongest ~
When she is Standing Upon Her Knees!

Revelation Of Righteousness
Terese Holloway
Released June 14h, 2010

In the battle over righteousness ~ Lord, may we have the eyes to see;
The realm of Heaven's Glory, and the hope that sets men free.
May we understand the timing, of this day we're living in;
And by the WISDOM of Your Word ~ turn our hearts away from sin.
When we decide whose side to stand on, may we keep our eyes on You,
And base solely our decisions, on what we know, You'd DO!
For, Lord, it's You, who've set the standard, and placed it in Your Word;
There is NO room for error, nor excuse for vision blurred.
For, we know that YOU give life, and You give the heart it's beat;
It's You, who forms the baby, with little hands and little feet.
Lord, we know that Your heart's grieved when man takes it in his hand;
To abort the life created ~ and thus, fulfill the devils plan.
And Lord, we know that you have told us, Israel is Your love
And those who stand WITH her, will have the blessings from above.
So, HOW, could we be so foolish, and turn our eyes from truth;
God, Your people MUST wake up and make a stand for YOU!
We ask You to forgive us and open up our eyes;
To show us in Your Word, there's NO room for compromise.
Lord, send Your Great Revival and outpour on us again;
The Blessings YOU intended ~ BEFORE we entered into sin!
Oh, God, the clock is ticking, when time will be no more;
When souls will loose FOREVER, their chance to find You, Lord.
May You open up a portal for such a time as this;
Turn the hearts of men to YOU ~ And Reveal YOUR Righteousness!

America's Great Awakening
Terese Holloway
Released July 3rd, 2010

When You look upon America ~ Lord, what is it, that YOU see;
A people with a heritage or those who've lost their destiny?
Seems we've wandered in the desert, so very far from You;
It's like, YOUR plan has been distorted, and we cannot see the truth!
How can You truly bless us when our hearts are hard and cold;
When we've turned away in arrogance, and disobeyed the laws of old?
Oh, Father, give back favor, and breathe on us again;
Rise up, on our behalf, and blow Your mighty wind.
Cause veils to just roll back, from those with blinded eyes;
Bring this Nation to repentance, and turn away ALL compromise!
Return to us the blessings, that are purposed in YOUR heart;
Cause the enemy to scatter ~ Command Your angels to stand guard.
We say, "NO MORE", to lawlessness and to the lies sent to deceive;
Release YOUR "blood bought army" ~ Come and set the captives free!
Lord, give us strength and courage, to come up, from the ash;
Let no weapon that's been formed, be allowed to hold us back.
Speak with words of wisdom, to those with ears to hear;
Move upon this Nation ~ once again, as time draws near!
God, restore our Nation's heritage and redeem our destiny;
Give BACK, what has been stolen and make us truly free!
We declare, "God Bless America" ~ Lord, may YOUR will, be done;
We put our trust in YOU and pray ~ That THIS victory WILL be won!
Send America's Great Awakening, From The Throne Of Heaven's Shore;
May Your Spirit Breathe Upon Us, And Draw Us Back To You, Oh, Lord!

Wonderful Stratford Booksigning
Terese Holloway
Released June 14h, 2010

Wonderful Booksigning in my
home town, Stratford, Texas!!!
As one of my friends put it, Stratford
truly IS ~ a small town with a BIG heart!
The booksigning was AWESOME, it went BEYOND
my expectations. I so enjoyed seeing all the
people I hadn't seen in years! Lots of classmates
came in, as well, which made it even MORE memorable!
Laughter truly IS the BEST medicine and we did plenty of that!
God far exceeded the blessings in my life this weekend!
I felt like Dorothy, in the Wizard of Oz, clicking my red heels
together, saying, "There's No Place Like Home!"
A BIG Thanks to ALL the Stratford Folks!

Morning Light
Terese Holloway
Released May 26h, 2010

I am closer to my destiny
Than when I first believed;
My destination has not changed
In the plan God has for me.
Circumstances often show
The opposite of truth;
But in my heart, I'm well aware
Of every budding fruit.
Even in my darkest night
When I've walked a weary road;
Still my eyes are filled with light
And my heart hangs on to hope.
You see, God is always with me
On the night before the dawn;
When my heart is heavy burdened
And it's hard to carry on.
But Morning Light, IS, coming
And the night's about to end;
For the season of my blessing,
Is, NOW, just around the bend!

I'm The Clay
Within HIS Hands

Terese Holloway
Released May 26h, 2010

I draw such hope and comfort
Within the Potter's Hands;
No matter WHAT I'm going through,
I'm STILL convinced, God has a plan!
You see, the Master Potter, ALWAYS knew
Exactly who I'd be;
And even in the spinnning,
He continually changes me.
Yes, my Father IS the Potter,
And I'm secure in HIM;
He takes this piece of clay, I am,
And makes me new AGAIN!
So, I submit unto the Maker,
And I remain upon the wheel;
I trust HIM as the Potter
And I will wait upon His will.
For, I am just a vessel ~
I'm the clay within HIS hands;
And my God is EVER working
To fulfill HIS perfect plan!

His Eyes In Me
Terese Holloway
Released May 26h, 2010

I wish I had perspective
To see from Heaven's Eyes;
Maybe, then, I wouldn't doubt,
Or bow to compromise.
If I could only SEE,
God's plan concerning me;
Then maybe I'd stay steady
And I wouldn't be so weak!
But, the truth is, I CAN'T see
What my tomorrow's hold;
And I try to cut my own path
Upon this earthly road.
So often I'm misled,
Upon the pathway that I choose;
And then I wonder WHY,
It's so hard to make it through.
I need God's constant vision
To guide me on my way;
To clearly mark the path
That HE wants ME to take.
My heart in faith, is trusting,
It can't be in WHAT I see;
It's the Holy Spirit's nudging
That draws me to my destiny.
It's having ears that listen
And hear His gentle voice;
Taking time to find the answers,
BEFORE I make a choice.
It's knowing He's the Lighthouse
Standing strong on heaven's shore
To illuminate the darkness
And lead me safely through the storm.
So, even though my earthly eyes
Can't see what my God sees;
I'll continue IN The Spirit,
And Let Him Be ~ HIS Eyes In Me!

Touch Of Elegance
Terese Holloway
Released April 19th, 2010

(the perspective through the eyes of the thief on the cross)
Snugly curled upon the window seat, she stares out across the lawn;
Intently watching with admiration this woman she calls Mom.
Her mind begins to ponder special memories deep within;
And she can't help but remember each and every one of them
As she intently sits and watches, her heart swells and burst with love;.
Realizing her mom's, a gift from God, truly given from above.
For a mother's gentle touch so often comes from God;
But it usually goes unnoticed with no thank you's or applause.
The amazing grace of tender love ~ A gift beyond compare;
It's in the photographs of memories of special moments that were shared.
It's the beauty of a mother's heart which holds the fragrance of Christ Love;
It's the tender Touch Of Elegance from the Father up above.
Now as she sits upon the window seat she lifts her hands in praise to God;
And she thanks Him for the priceless gift ~
Of this woman she calls MOM!

Lifetime Treasures
Terese Holloway
Released April 19th, 2010

A mother stores away
Precious treasures in her heart;
Often taking time
To ponder her memories with regard.
She focuses on days gone by
That had such meaning in her life;
And cannot help but praise the Lord
For what her life was like.
She recalls every tender touch
And every sweet caress;
She remembers the great challenge
Of every trial and test.
She only had a little time
To mold with love and care;
And then it vanished. like the night
But NOT without her prayers.
A Mother's Heart will do it's best
To train and lead with love;
But when the nest is empty,
She must have peace she did ENOUGH!
God has given her sweet memories
Hidden deep within her heart;
As Her Treasures For A Lifetime
That she protects and guards.

Very First Person Saved By Grace
Terese Holloway
Released March 29th, 2010

(the perspective through the eyes of the thief on the cross)
Little did I know today as I walked this long and dusty road
That as I hung upon a dreadful cross, I'd play a most important role.
For in the midst of haughty ridicule, I was meant to be a source of shame;
For the man they all called Jesus ~ side by side, TODAY, we'd hang!
I didn't fully understand WHY, he was placed between two thieves;
You see, WE deserved to die ~ the other man and me.
But I couldn't help but wonder why this gentle man should die;
What had he done so awful that the crowd yelled, "Crucify?"
My emotions stirred within as I watched the mob grow wild;
They mocked and jeered his name and in EVERY way, defiled!
I could HEAR the very breath of Jesus ~ I could FEEL his intensity within
But even now, in all his pain, he bowed and prayed for THEM.
I observed the one's that loved him, in helpless turmoil cry and scream;
Their very hearts were being broken and they couldn't do a thing.
Then I heard an ANGRY voice, shouting from the to other side of Christ;
Joining in on all the ridicule, with a heart as cold as ice.
How coud he hang by Jesus and NOT know the truth today;
How could he be THIS close to him and YET so far away?
Then I turned my heart to Jesus and placed my eyes on HIM;
I ask him, "Lord, remember ME, when it comes time to enter in!"
I felt his strong and piercing love as he stared deep within my eyes;
And he assured me that TODAY, I'd be with HIM in paradise.
So, I held on BEYOND the pain with a faith in God's Own Son;
To deliver me from death, when my life on earth was done.
I became the very FIRST ~ Person Saved By Grace;
And I finally understood, this most important role I played.
God's Only Son became a sacrifice, and redeemed the world from sin;
Today, he conquered death's harsh sting ~ so even, I, could enter in!

Lord, how can I repay, the price You paid for me;
So many years ago, upon the Cross of Calvary?
You see, I can truly see it, in my mind so very clear;
The steps You took to give ME life, to rip the veil and draw me near!
I can hear the conversation between the Father and the Son;
Of all that You'd endure, so that MY heart, could be won.
You left Your Home In Glory, Your Kingdom and Your Throne;
To come into MY world ~ and give, Your life, to lead ME home.
Just a tiny baby, wrapped in swaddling clothes;
Laying in a manger ~ the Gift Of Life And Hope!
To grow in simple lifestyle, unlike Your Kingly Role;
You gave up heaven's treasures and the comfort of Your Throne!
And THEN, the time DID come, for You to sacrifice it all;
It was the plan for all the ages, it gave redemption for the fall!
Your Blood was shed upon that Cross, as YOU became a lamb;
And all of time stood silent, across the heaven's and the land.
It was done, YES, it was finished, and the plan fell into place;
It's where a King became a baby, and then a man who poured out GRACE!
From the grave, You rose to life, and returned to Heaven's Throne;
And You did it ALL for ME ~ You made ME Lord, Your Own.
The gift You gave was priceless, it has made me who I am;
A Child Redeemed By Grace ~ Forever Grateful, To The Lamb!
And even now, I wait for You, and watch for You to come;
As YOUR plan, comes to fruition, and the FINAL victory's won!

Seeds Of Hope
Terese Holloway
Released February 8th, 2010

Life isn't ALWAYS just WHAT we receive;
Instead, It's touching the hearts, of others in need.
You see, there's so many people, that long to be loved;
Just to know God is real, even when times are tough!
But so often our hearts become selfish and cold;
And we overlook treasures ~ right under our nose!
There are those who are dying , with not even a hug;
Lonely and hurting and feeling unloved.
So, give hope to another, whose heart is in need;
Be a little more humble and a little less "me"!
For you just never know, what God plans to do;
With seed that is planted, through someone like you!
He may remove pain, and it's harsh bitter sting;
And replace it with joy ~ With a NEW song to sing!
He may paint a smile, on a face stained with tears;
Or brighten dull eyes, dimmed by dark years!
He may grasp and take hold, of a lost weary soul;
He may stand at deaths door, with a light that leads home!
He may open the heart of that one to receive;
The Gift Of HIS Son, through your tiny seed!
You may NEVER know, what the Lord did through YOU;
Until His books are all opened and your life's on review!
So, give hope to another, whose heart is in need ~
And trust God's Sweet Spirit ~ to come and water, the seed!
