Beloved, Beautiful, Beyond Compare
Beloved, Beautiful, beyond compare
My dove, darling, sweeter than wine
Completely flawless and very rare
Come, fairest of the ten thousand, let’s dine.
O Best of the best, come, be my guest,
You have excellence without rival.
You’re my desire, my diamond, my quest,
Outshining the stars, ushering revival.
Ravishing, disarming, wonderful, glorious,
Your royalty and nobility, impeccable.
Masterpiece, work of art, gorgeous,
Exclusive, delight, spiced, adorable.
Coming and going just searching for you
Ravished then famished, taken breath away
I went to heaven and then hell for you
Why summer and winter on the same day?
My joy, my jewel, you’re my reason for being
Your smile is the sun that will dry my tears
Come take my arms, I will give anything
Why do you run? What, my love are your fears?
A new leaf I will turn, eyes just for you
A new song I will sing, ’Just two of us’
O, come home, come home, I badly need you
Without you, I will be at a great loss
Come into my fold, O love that’s gone cold.
Truly, to me, you will ever be gold.
The apple of my eyes, that’s what you are.
My treasured one, the best bird I can have.
Ruined and marred by the fall that kept you far.
Yet, I longed daily for you, my first love.
Wondering and pondering which day you will come.
Waiting and looking for my broken dream
To come into my garden and bosom.
I looked here and there even in the stream.
Prepared a sumptuous meal for you and I.
But there, vacant remained your seat and place.
Gone for so long, I kept asking, ‘Why, Why?’
When will you return and show me your face.
No one, nothing! can take your place, beloved.
For you, any mountain I would have moved.
Support a good cause
By Sowing a good seed
Your harvest will come
As you meet this need
Why Worry When …
Worry wears you out,
Make you doubt,
Causes you to shed a tear,
Increases your fear,
Makes you mad ,
Bad and then sad.
Why worry when
Worry Creates chasms,
Triggers stress spasms,
Causes you to rust,
Makes you weep,
Steals your sleep.
Why worry when…
Worry weighs you down
And makes you frown,
Delays your answers
Weakens your prayers,
Makes you pay interest
On trouble before it manifests.
Why worry when…
Worry makes a mountain
of momentary mole hill,
Breaks your focus,
Causes you to curse,
Why worry when …
and constrains you
Hijacks your breakthrough
And proceeds to break you;
Limits and drains you,
Increases you palpitation
And warps your concentration.
Replace worry with faith
Confidence and trust in God.
Replace worry with prayers
And receive the peace of God.
Replace worry with hope
In a God of Hope.
The LORD the Strength of His People A Song of Ascents.
1 Those who trust in the LORD Are like Mount Zion, Which cannot be moved, but abides forever. 2 As the mountains surround Jerusalem, So the LORD surrounds His people From this time forth and forever. 3 For the scepter of wickedness shall not rest On the land allotted to the righteous, Lest the righteous reach out their hands to iniquity.
Psalms 121: God the Help of Those Who Seek Him A Song of Ascents. 1 I will lift up my eyes to the hills — From whence comes my help? 2 My help comes from the LORD, Who made heaven and earth. 3 He will not allow your foot to be moved; He who keeps you will not slumber. Psalms 40:
Faith Persevering in Trial To the Chief Musician. A Psalm of David.
1 I waited patiently for the LORD; And He inclined to me, And heard my cry. 2 He also brought me up out of a horrible pit, Out of the miry clay, And set my feet upon a rock, And established my steps. 3 He has put a new song in my mouth — Praise to our God; Many will see it and fear, And will trust in the LORD. 5 Why are you cast down, O my soul? And why are you disquieted within me? Hope in God, for I shall yet praise Him For the help of His countenance. Psalms 3: The LORD Helps His Troubled People A Psalm of David when he fled from Absalom his son. 1 LORD, how they have increased who trouble me! Many are they who rise up against me. 2 Many are they who say of me, ” There is no help for him in God.” Selah 3 But You, O LORD, are a shield for me, My glory and the One who lifts up my head. 4 I cried to the LORD with my voice, And He heard me from His holy hill. Selah 5 I lay down and slept; I awoke, for the LORD sustained me.
When Sorrow Strikes
Do not despair
God is at hand
In the darkness.
He will not leave
Will not forsake
He is at work
He is cooking
A sumptuous sup.
For His glory.
He’s changing you
As to use you
To cause a change
A change for good.
In your own world.
So remain strong
Receive your song
From what seems wrong.
Sing in the rain.
Despite the pain.
Come forth like gold.
Like Job of old.
5 For His anger is but for a moment,
His favor is for life;
Weeping may endure for a night,
But joy comes in the morning.Ps30:5
28 And we know that all things work together for good to those who love God, to those who are the called according to His purpose.Ro8:28
14 Now thanks be to God who always leads us in triumph in Christ, and through us diffuses the fragrance of His knowledge in every place.2Cor2:14
