Lean on Elohi Tsuri (Revised)

April 21, 2014

This can be heard on Spreaker

Heart pounding,
Palms sweating
Mind racing
Breath shortening

What am I afraid of?
Of the unknown?
/Of man?
Of things?

Things are in a tizzy
Why do I feel so dizzy?
God didn’t give us a spirit of fear.
He wants to draw us near.

*He gave us the spirit of love
His love from above
He also gave us his power
Us it will empower.

Sound minds he gave us too
So what am I going to do?
I’m going to lean on Elohi Tsuri**
Who is My God, My Rock to me.

* Scripture reference 2 Timothy 1:7

**I got this from another book whose source I cannot remember, so I looked it up on the net and found the meaning here.

You’re Invited

December 13, 2013

A valley is in front of you
It is verdant with greens and brilliant with colored blooms
Some are just flowers, but some are fruit for eating
The colors are vibrant, not fleeting

Fleeting is the sounds of everyday life
Gone are the cares, and the anxst of strife
Ahead of you is a gigantic tree
Its boughs laden with fruit for you and me

Me and you have the right to share
What we find out there
An invitation sounds from all around
“Come, eat the fruits that sprout from the ground

Ground brought forth all we will ever need
Brought forth from His great seed
Seed sewn with love and life
No, it’s not a lot of hype

Hype would only spoil this pure land
This cozy place where He planted the fruit by hand
He gives it all to you and I; our cups are overflowing
It’s His extravagent love He’s showing

Who?

June 22, 2013

“Hi, I’m in everybody
I’m in you in you every way
I am walking with you even though you can’t see me
I will never leave you, see?

See how we interact, you and I?
You’ll learn that I am gentle, by and by
I want to be your friend, your constant companion
I won’t be an imposition

Imposition is not the way I work
You may think it’s a quirk
I love you, that’s not a joke
You, I won’t prod or poke

Poking just makes you mad
Or makes you full of dispair and sad
I love you, please understand
Please, I want to take your hand.”

Window of Grace

March 25, 2013

I will stand with my Lord Jesus
And not create a fuss
I will fight the good fight the best I know how
I will not let my spirit go fallow

Fallow spirits mean a harden heart
Then my Lord and I must depart
He must step away
Because I have sinned and strayed

Strayed from Him, just like the rest of the world
Rolling up my flag, not having it unfurled
Hiding in my darkness, not wanting to come out
All I want to do is fume and pout

Pouting isn’t the way to go
I remember that as I step through Grace’s window
Into the arms of my loving Lord
Who is someone I cannot ignore

Planned

March 9, 2013

I look up to the heavens above
I see a cloud shaped like a dove
I think about the time when the dove descended down
To tell us all that God smiled, not frowned

I look around to see a trickling stream.
I think about Joseph’s dream
The dream which told Your earthly father to marry Your mother
And that he shouldn’t seek another

I’m thankful that it’s you who has it all in control
You had it all planned when it was so cold
You had it all planned from beginning to end
Heaven’s gates were opened

Opened wide they were that night
The shepherds were paralyzed with fright
I smile and thank you Jesus, my Lord
With you showing me these things, I’ll never be bored!

It’s Given

January 28, 2013

I lift my eyes to the sky
Praising the Lord Most High
He is everywhere, whether we know it or not
His love can’t be sold or bought

Bought were our souls with His own blood, pure
Yet He has risen; His love still endures
He has given His unfailing grace
All we have to do is seek His face

Face Him, no, we don’t want to
We think there’s something we should do
To earn His favour and unfailing love
It’s always here, it’s given freely from above

Roadside Elk

October 7, 2012

It looked at us as we slowed down
If it could, I think it would frown
The elk was by the roadside
Feeding on what they can find

Finding what is needed to survive
In a herd more than five
We sat there in the car
We didn’t want to go far

Farther on we traveled to our cabin cozy
Thinking of the mountains ahead brings thoughts so rosy
We end our travels for the supper table
A good meal was cooked by those who were able

We were thankful to God above
I could feel His love
I was so glad to be there
In the country of bears

Will You?

March 20, 2012

What do you know about love?
It’s an action commanded from above
It’s about setting boundaries
Not doing as you please.

Love’s helping one another
With your sister or brother
Talking with kindness to each other
Talking with clarity, not making one blubber

Blubbering only shows up a fool
Why blubber, when you can be a tool?
A tool to be a cure for death
The next breath

Breath from the one Creator
The ultimate peacemaker
You can bring so much to a friend
Will you love someone in the end?

I Still Love You

June 28, 2011

I bore you to myself on eagles wings
Away, above all worries and things
I brought you out of the darkness
Out of your mess

I have set you on firm ground
But you have turned around
I have healed your wounds deep
Filled you full; it’s not a feat

So why do you turn away child?
I know all about the wooly and the wild
I love you so much
I love your touch

Come back, you’re always welcome
You’re not feeble or dumb
Climb up on my lap, dear heart
and confess to me why we are apart
