Help is on the way

“When I fully trust in you, help is on the way.
I jump for joy and burst forth with ecstatic, passionate praise!
I will sing songs of what you mean to me!
You will be the inner strength of all your people,
the mighty protector of all,
the saving strength for all your anointed ones.
Keep protecting and cherishing your chosen ones;
in you they will never fall.
Like a shepherd going before us, keep leading us forward,
forever carrying us in your arms!”

(Psalm 28:7-9, The Passion Translation)

Your Love knows what’s best for me

Thank You for who You are
And what You do
For Your promises are
Forever true.

More than a friend
You’re a Beautiful Father
More than a King
You’re close like no other.

You flow like a river
Bringing healing and peace
Cascading down my broken crevices
Making whole, my soul’s premises.

A gentle ray of light
You draw me out
A radiant beam
You reset my route.

You walk with me
Faithful, every step we take
Through the unknown
Restoring hope, though the nations shake.

You remain unshaken
Committed to shepherding us
In love and tenderness
Through the barrenness.

Lush green pastures
We will soon see
Your timing be honoured
For Your Love died to set us free.


Be still, O my soul

We will not be moved
But we will watch You move
The mountains and the boulders
As You hoist us on Your shoulders.

Your footprints in the sand
A testimony of Grace
We never have to strive
As we lean in to see Your face.

Shining and reassuring
Bringing calm to our souls
Your smile that meets us
In bottomless pits and holes.

Nothing is too hard for You
So we humble ourselves
You’re meeting our every need
Our souls in deep catharsis.

It’s windy and gusty
The weather patterns are changing
You’re working behind the scenes
So we wait on You patiently.

Every care and concern
We surrender our all
Nothing do we withhold
From The One who gave His all.


New Wineskin

It looks a little more yielded
A bit more surrendered
Definitely more trusting
In The Love that causes a deepening.

In our spirits and our souls
So instead we can be clothed
With compassion, mercy and grace
For The Love that saved us deserves to be adorned with much praise.

Founded on The Name that saves
Awash with the truth of timeless promises
Anchored on every Word from Heaven
Seated in the depths of The Love that comes straight from The Son.

She’s getting ready for her Bridegroom
Who has wooed her with much compassion
Always comes right on time
So she decides to prepare meanwhile.

Her banner of victory lifted high
Burning lamps, right by her side
Passionate perseverance, she knows her call
For it comes from The One who will never let her fall.
