Jesus, My Friend

Jesus, My Friend
Oh, Dearest Jesus, how I long to hear
With anticipation and an eager ear
For the day in which You will to me come
Telling me Thy Will has been done.
"Good and faithful servant," will be the words You speak.
"In obedience to My Word, you have become humble and meek."
And then, to me, You will say the words I have so desperately longed for.
"Today, my friend, I have come to take you home and live with me you shall forever more.
No more suffering and pain,
For the Kingdom of God is now your gain.
Like a Father who stands near His obedient child lovingly and proud,
You held fast to Truth and did not succumb to the evilness of the crowd.
For you opened your heart and accepted Me in thought and deed,
Recognizing that it is I who fills each and every need.
All of your sins have been washed away.
And in magnificent glory you shall be with Me this day."
Until, Dearest Jesus, that day will arise,
Plant within my heart the Holy Spirit to be wise.
Please lead me in Thy holy ways.
And bless each and every one of my days.
Open my heart to willingly obey and trust,
Knowing that this command from You is a must.
"There is work here yet to be done.
But take heart knowing the victory has already been won.
I know you cannot see what lies before you,
But there is something here for you to do.
Feel My powerful hand rest your fearful heart.
I am always with you and will never from you in this life depart." 


"For the waywardness of the simple will kill them, and the complacency of fools will destroy them; but whoever listens to me will live in safety and will be at ease, without fear of harm." Proverbs 1:32-33

"Then you will understand what is right and just and fair - every good path. For wisdom will enter your heart, and knowledge will be pleasant to your soul. Discretion will protect you, and understanding will guard you." Proverbs 2:9-11

"The righteous cry out, and the Lord hears them; he delivers them from all their troubles. The Lord is close to the brokenhearted and saves those who are crushed in spirit. A righteous man may have many troubles, but the Lord delivers him from them all; he protects all his bones, not one of them will be broken." Psalm 34:17-20

Promises of the Lord
When I am feeling low,
And my mind wanders to places I do not want to go,
With all of my heart I seek You out.
When I focus on Your promises, gone are the worries and doubt.
For You have made known Your promises to me,
When I walk the path of obedience and with my heart believe.
When the path along this journey becomes too long,
The Holy Spirit revives and makes fresh the beauty of the Lord's song.
You remind me my home is not here in this place.
And belong I finally will when I see My Father's face.
"In the midst of your turmoil I will come to meet you there.
I will love you through it, all the while showing you how much for you I care.
I have filled your heart with the Holy Spirit's love.
Only such a gift can come from the Father in Heaven above.
Through every fallen and shed tear,
I have promised to be near.
Even when it appears your world is unraveling and falling apart,
The Holy Spirit remains rooted deep within your heart.
Though others may walk away,
I will always with you stay.
I will be by your side.
My Light, My Word, shall be your guide.
Stay the Lord's course and be blessed.
For it is in Me that you will find your soul's rest.
I will deliver you from the depths of despair.
And the cloak of righteousness you will surely wear.
I will love you with an everlasting and undying love.
My love for you is honest and true.  
No one on this earth can love you as I do.
My plans for you are not to harm but are for good.
Trust in Me to let My Will unfold as it should."

God's Power

"All this I have spoken while still with you. But the Counselor, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in my name, will teach you all things and will remind you of everything I have said to you. Peace I leave with you; my peace I give to you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid."
John 14:25-27

I'm coming to realize just how powerful God truly is. Don't get me wrong. In my mind I always knew of His mighty power. But, it wasn't until I felt the mysterious power of the Lord within me that I am now completely awestruck by just how great it truly is!

Consider John 14:25-27 for a minute. God's presence with us is the Holy Spirit within. Although Jesus is not "physically" present, He has given us the Holy Spirit to live like Jesus, to be reminded of His ways, to know His knowledge and wisdom, to be ambassadors for Christ and to have the feeling of belonging. We belong to Christ!

So often it is easy to feel abandoned and alone as a single parent in this world. But, He never abandons or leaves us. When the Holy Spirit is within us, we are NEVER alone, and we always have a partner and a place of belonging. No matter where we are or what circumstance we face we can call upon the Lord to help us, and He will be there. What an amazing gift this is. NEVER ALONE. To feel this, read and study God's Word. Ask Him to walk with you, to heal the broken places in your heart and to show you what unconditional love and acceptance is.

The Holy Spirit makes His home within those who love the Lord (John 14:23). Those who do not know the Lord cannot begin to describe His majesty and power, because they do not seek Him. When the Lord lives within your heart you know it (John 14:16-18). Your love for Him and His holy power make you want to live differently.

God's Power
In my affliction I call out Your holy name.
Thy name is power and ordinary is no longer the same,
And in my afflicted state I no longer remain.
In hearing Thy name,
Your enemies fall down on their knees and cower.
For great and supreme is that of the Lord's power.
When Your praises are sung out,
Gone are the devil's strongholds of worry and doubt.
I cannot be held down and buried,
When it is by the Lord I am carried!
