Hold me Lord, enfold me Lord
Embrace me from above
Lord, I come to meet with You
Expressing all my love.
In worship ~ in Your presence
As I look upon Your face
My heart consoled, You make me whole
And I receive more grace.

“You make known to me the path of life;
in Your presence there is fullness of joy;
at Your right hand are pleasures forevermore”
(Psalm 16:11, ESV)
You make me feel special,
You make my heart glad.
You look after me,
my heavenly Dad.
You know what I’m thinking
and hear when I pray.
You speak words of comfort
to guide me each day.
When oft I need someone
to lift up my hands,
You’re always there, Lord –
and You understand.
You show that You care
in the trials I face.
I know I can always
keep trusting Your grace.
You guide my steps, Lord,
as I travel this road.
You give to me rest
as I give you my load.
Dear Father, I’m glad
that to You I belong.
I thank you for blessing
my heart with this song.

To simply make light of another one’s plight
Is like leaving them out in the rain
But from 0-10, we’re told to say “When”
So the doctor can find the pain
While one may get by, another may cry
Not everyone is the same
The soul is a place where we all need grace
Again and again and again
One soul may carry a load today
And then shed that load tomorrow
But what of the one who beneath the same
Also carries a load of sorrow
Some may be feeble, some may be strong
Some may be slow, or may speed
God knows how much each person can bear
And can help at our point of need
He knows our fears .. He bottles our tears
And encourages us to be strong
Forever to put our trust in Him
Believing it won’t be long
So whatever it is, whether great or small
Let’s listen with hearts of love
For “Blessed are the merciful” Jesus said
For they’ll have the same from above

Blessed are the merciful, for they will be shown mercy”
One person’s sufferings may look light to another, and in their eyes be minimised,
but who knows the whole picture? Only God.
He knows the capacity ~ because He made the container.
He offers hope to help us cope.
Blessings and love to All!
O Lord, You are awesome! Glorious King.
Your love is so beautiful ~ You’re everything!
You draw me with words that enlighten my eyes.
The knowledge of You makes the simple one wise
To honour and fear You is wholesome and pure.
In You, I’m protected, in You, I’m secure
My mountains for You are a walk in the park.
You’re the Light of my life when around me looks dark.
Sometimes when it seems I am at my wit’s end
I know I can call on You, Jesus, my Friend
Unshakeable Refuge in trials and storms.
When life leaves me cold, Your love makes me warm.
You call me to come ~ in prayer to Your throne
With mercy You greet me and call me Your own
As long as I wait, never rushing away
Your presence sweeps over my soul as I pray
Dear Lord, You are awesome, my glorious King,
the joy deep inside ~ that makes my heart sing!

In these trying times in which we live, there is Someone to Whom we can turn…God, our Heavenly Father. He is faithful and true.. able to sustain us, to carry us through – whatever may be the storm in our life, whether literal, emotional, spiritual, psychological, etc. GOD is our refuge and strength.
Dear Father in Heaven, thank You for your kindness and mercy towards us always. Help us in these difficult days to allow You to be our refuge and our strength. At times, we feel so weak, but You are strong always. Thank You that Your strength is made perfect in our weakness. When we cannot depend upon ourselves, thank You that we CAN depend on You. May our faith and trust in You, and Your holy Word, grow day by day, through Christ Jesus our Lord. Thank You Lord, Amen.
Blessings and love always dear friends
Let love take over when hate surrounds;
Let my heart be filled with love that abounds.
Let joy bring strength when I feel weak.
You’re all I need; Your face I seek.
Let peace take over that calms all strife;
Your peace from above, for You are my life.
O give me a heart, Lord, of longsuffering,
At times when I’m tested and tried to the brim.
Let gentleness, Lord, be a part of me.
Please mould me, as clay, to be all I should be.
Let goodness shine as the bright morning sun,
So darkness, by light, may be overcome.
Let faith come forth that will banish all fear.
Dispel all the doubts; let Your presence be near.
Let meekness, Lord, be what You will see.
Remove all earthly pride in me
Let temperance show ~ in all that I do.
Please help me to be a reflection of You
Each step of the way, in the journey I take,
Be exalted, dear Lord, for Your Name’s sake.
