Colors of Hope

“LORD,

You’ve planted a vision

Deep inside of me.

Stir up the colors,

Refresh my eyes to see.

Plans for the future,

Guided by Your Son.

“To prosper and not harm me,

You’ve purposed everyone!”

 

“For I know the thoughts

That I think toward you,

Says the LORD,

Thoughts of

Peace and not evil,

To give you a

Future and a hope.”

Jeremiah 29:11 NKJV

You Walked for Me

“From the sands of the sea

Your heart is set on me.

Through the expanse of time the

Cross it does remind.

You walked all the way for me;

From Your heart flowed Calvary.”

 

“How precious also are Your thoughts to me, O God!

How great is the sum of them!

If I should count them,

They would be more in number than the sand.”

Psalm 139:17-18 NKJV

The King of Kindness

“Your mercy is new each morning;

A gentle breeze touched by Light.

Intercession for my weakness;

The King of Kindness,

All Power and Faithful Might.”

 

“Now it happened on the third day that Esther

Put on her royal robes and stood in the inner court

Of the King’s palace…when the King saw

Queen Ester standing in the court, that

She found favor in His sight…” Esther 5:1-2 NKJV

 

Esther’s Hebrew name is “Hadassah” which means “Myrtle”.

“ ‘But My kindness shall not depart from you,

Nor shall My covenant of Peace be removed.’

Says the LORD,

Who has mercy on you.” Isaiah 54:10 NKJV

Mimosa Sweet

“Entreat me not to leave you”

Cause my feet to stay.

Breathing in Your fragrance

Mimosa sweet

Summer day.”

“Entreat me not to leave you,

Or turn back from following after you;

For wherever you lodge,

I will lodge;

Your people shall be my people…”

Ruth 1:16 NKJV
