And to sing praises to Your Name,

To declare Your lovingkindness in the morning,

And Your faithfulness every night.”

In Stillness

“There’s no comfort in this world.

No place to lay one’s head.

Foxes surround the vineyard;

Confusion stirs up dread.

But Peace resides in stillness,

Waiting to speak to me.

Open up the Word

‘Be still’ and ‘Follow Me.’”

 

“O my Dove, in the cleft of the Rock,

In the secret places of the cliff.

Let me see Your Face,

Let me hear Your Voice,

For Your Voice is sweet,

And Your Face is Lovely.”

Song of Solomon 2:14 (NKJV)

 

“Be still, and know

I AM God.” Psalm 46:10 (NKJV)

Dancing Dawn

“Open up the day;

Bring the sun along.

For sorrow tarries in the shadows;

Rejoice, Oh dancing dawn!”

 

“Sing praises to the LORD, O you His saints,

And give thanks to His Holy Name…

Weeping may tarry for the night,

But joy comes with the morning.”

Psalm 30:4-5 (ESV)

Place of Time

“Thank you for this Peace of time.

Not my will, but Yours divine.

Guide my hands and bless my bowl;

Open my eyes as Your treasures unfold.

Cause my heart to step in Thine,

For I long to hear Your voice in this place of time.”

 

“…and after the fire a still small voice.” 1 Kings 19:12 (NKJV)

Morning Dew Breezes

“It shall be in that day,

‘The tongue’ shall ‘sing’!

Open up the flood gates

For the dry lands shall burst forth in spring!

 

Flowers shall bloom,

Plans arise!

Purpose will take root, and

Prosper before your eyes!

 

Sing, oh daughters of Jerusalem,

“Do not stir up love until it pleases…”

Open your mouth wide

For singing begins on morning dew breezes.”

 

“I charge you,

O daughters of Jerusalem,

By the gazelles or the does of the field,

Do not stir up nor awaken love until it pleases.”

Song of Solomon 2:7 NKJV

 

“Be glad and rejoice with all your heart,

O daughters of Jerusalem!”

Zephaniah 3:14 NKJV

Days of Sand

LORD, You know the plan.

Before the beginning of time,

You destine the days of sand.

Running through the hour glass;

Minutes count away.

Someone in school needs a word today.

Bind all harden hearts, and

Let the tears flow down.

Open up their ears to hear;

Calm the “lost” and “found”.

Draw each child to Your Presence;

For we rest in Your work this day.

A Mighty move from heaven,

Holy Spirit have Your way.”

In Jesus Name,

Amen

Jumping Ahead

Meditating on His Word instead of jumping ahead.”

Listen and hear My speech…

His God teaches him.”

Words Encircle

“Crucify sleeping flesh;

Time to rise and leave your rest.

He’s waiting on the morning dew;

Can’t you hear?

He’s calling you.

 

Here I am Lord at Your call;

Words encircle,

Love enthralled.”

Eyes Set Forward

“No turning back to the former ways.

No stretching the neck in reverse these days.

Eyes straight forward,

Head set firm;

Wisdom beckons onward,

Come listen to My Words and learn.”

“For what had not been told them they shall see,

And what they had not heard they shall consider.”

Isaiah 52:15 (NKJV)

Melody of Chords Proclaim

“Wind chimes are praising Your Name.

Lifting up chords of Your fame.

Breeze’s sing along,

Carrying the song,

“Jesus the King we proclaim!”

 

Trust in His love;

He’ll lift you above

Every heartache and worry refrain.

Melody of chords, all sing to the LORD,

“Jesus the King we proclaim!”

“…be filled with the Spirit.

Speaking to one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs.

Singing and making melody in your heart to the LORD

…giving thanks always for all things to God the Father

In the Name of our Lord Jesus Christ.” Ephesians 5:19-20 NKJV

Instead of the grip of time.”
