“Waking to Your sunshine,
The rising of the day.
Giving glory to our Creator,
For in Christ,
We live, dream and play.”
“For by Him all things were created that are in heaven and that are on the earth… All things were created through Him and for Him.” Colossians 1:16 NKJV

“Flowers sing in gentle wind,
Drops of dew refresh.
Green of grass,
Days that last,
Long after sunsets pass.”

“ Revive me according to Your Word,”
Your best is yet reserved.”
“The Kingdom of heaven is like a certain king who arranged a marriage for his son and sent out his servants to call those who were invited to the wedding; and they were not willing to come.
“Again, he sent out other servants, saying, ‘Tell those who are invited , “See, I have prepared my dinner…and all things are ready.
Come to the wedding.”’
Matthew 22:1-4 NKJV
“Revive me according to Your word…
Revive me, O LORD, according to Your lovingkindness.”

“Anoint my hand
In the things of You.
Protect my feet
As I walk it through.
Bless my thoughts with
Your Word Divine.
“Holy unto You”

“Come out of your glass box,
Too long you’ve been concealed.
Pickup your shield of faith,
Remove your bridal veil!
Slip on your shoes peace,
Declare the Spirit’s Truth.
Walk in your Kingdom Power,
This is the Bridal hour!”
“Therefore take up the whole armor of God, that you may be able to withstand in the evil day…above all, taking the shield of faith with which you will be able to quench all the fiery darks of the wicked one.” Ephesians 6:13&16 NKJV

“All writing is in a sense a prayer – a sending out of hope, a thanksgiving, a celebration, a song sent into the wind that we hope someone will hear.” Quote by Georgia Heard
Writing the words scored on our hearts happens for me in the quiet places of life. In the uninterrupted times when the house is asleep or the rare days of gardening outside in the light.
Raking pass the clutter of the “to do’s”…
Stepping into the ideas, dreams and stories my heart longs to share.
Cutting away the weeds of negativity…
Not listening to the trash talk, “Your not good enough,” or “No one else will care to read.”
“Weeds were wrapped around my head.” Jonah 2:5
Uncovering a nugget of truth.
It takes persistence to break open the time…
Once opened, beauty blooms upward toward the light renewing the passion planted deep inside one’s soul.
“In hope believed.” Romans 4:18
Let it not be said of me, she didn’t find the time to write, to embrace her destiny for if she passes by her heart’s desire as
“…a song sent into the wind…”
“I tell you that if these should keep silent, the stones would immediately cry out.” Luke 19:40 NKJV
“Blessed is she who believed, for there will be a fulfillment of those things which were told her from the Lord.” Luke 1:45 NKJV
“Like an open book, You watched me grow from conception to birth; all the stages of my life were spread out before You, The days of my life all prepared before I’d even lived one day.” Psalm 139:15 TM
You are the storm,
You are the Sea.
You are the One Who rescues me.
At Your word mountains move.
In the sound of Your voice Peace is heard.
Declaring Your love with the rising of the Son.
I live, breath and walk to be with You as One.
“I in them, and You in Me; that they may be made perfect in one, and that the world may know that You have sent Me, and have loved them as You have loved Me”
John 17:23 NKJV
“You live fully in Me and now I live fully in them so that they will experience perfect unity.”
John 17:23 TPT
denisebalog – Caesarea, Israel
Woven in my soul,
Embroidered in my heart,
Are all Your plans and purposes,
Each one a place to start.
“Woman, you are loosed from your infirmity.” Luke 13:12
