With All Of My Life

With all of my life
I shall praise You, O Lord;

32c40541edc5067257fdd004214e39112

With all of my life
I shall worship in Your Holy Place;

f56963755b8871ef14c5a86eafa474691

With all of my life
I shall honor Your words of life
and truth and grace;

With all of my life
I shall be servant to those in need.

With all of my life
I shall be all that You created me to be . . .
The hands, the feet, the voice of Christ
onto the world;

And then, at each day’s end
I shall lie down and rest in peace,
for I have gratefully given You fully
all of my life.

Arms of Prayer

TH  TH  13439001_1110330929012922_2854576757581836559_n - Copy

Arms of Prayer,
Reaching out to bless the world in peace.
This my heart knows
as it silently recites the sacred whisper God bestows.
Hushed, in solemn splendour of an awe-filled realm,
the Spirit touches deep
to tell the soul of loveliest grace and mercy given onto thee.

There is no sorrow now among this distant sea
where white wings send the breath prayers back to God.
This altar of Divine bliss sweetens any darker thought
into a song;
In praise the temple of this space resounds.

O Holy Soul that might be given such depth
of majesty to behold;
Stand in the shadow for too much is Light:
The Radiance streameth on,
and you are kept upon the earth
to wonder at its brilliant sight.

Listen ~ Look ~ Breathe

Listen for the sounds unleashed in the silence.
Listen for the voices of stone that cry out to the glory of God.

Look for the sights unveiled by the rising sun.

Look for the blossoms shimmering in morning light,
singing God’s praise.
Breathe in the gift of faithful promises.
Breathe in the hope of a future world, now but not yet,
where freedom triumphs, peace and abundance reign.
Amen.

Creator Of All Life,

As the seasons shift now ~
everywhere I see signs of Your creative power.

I behold Your glory in the tiniest bud
that bursts forth from the dark earth
searching for the light.

I see Your beauty unfolding
as the first radiant flower of the Spring.

Every tree stands ready to begin
the dance of new beginnings
as their leaves form ever stronger.

And so it is, that something stirs within me too ~
~ awakening me to the blessings of each new day
~ receiving the abundance of the glory You display
~ magnificence in all creation sings as I bow to pray.

Creator Of All Life,
Thank you for Your Beauty.
My heart sings out Your praise!

I Sit, To Be The Faithful One

HSS 907ee692730f8b7af746ea4b6fa4e4cb

I sit,
to be
the faithful one
that comes to you
each day ~
Listening for
the word
that heals my soul.

There can be
not a better way
to know the path
I trod
than hearing Love
sent to me
from the Source.

This life
I live
is filled now
with delight ~
as rising
I embrace
each joyous day.

Forever singing
of Your highest praise
~ together
we venture forth
in Holy Light.

Could Be

Could be
that the April day arising
has the power of new birth ~
blossoming within
I feel the power of her grace
within my soul.

She manages to reach all
the hidden parts of me,
that languish in the
dark cells,
ever dying, ever still.

Could be
that the seed of life
will rise this very day ~
opening to the Light
that shines her way ~
beckoning her forth
into streams of golden rays,
living proof of wonders
sent to say:

“Tiniest of flowers –
you are born to beautify ~
simply being – is your greatest gift;
offer this to all
who would stand upon this place,
gazing into wonder, awe, and praise.

No one can deny
yours is more than words can say ~
as you bless with grace
this quiet hour;
giving, O so freely,
of yourself to all who gaze ~
into simple elegance,
your power.”

Timeless Honor And Blessing Come Your Way

 

 

DSCF1230

Timeless honor and blessing come your way
to lead you forth into the glorious Light;
Your hand is grasped by spirit power,
to guide you into heights of grandest praise.

You will not know the exactness of your life,
It is to trust that you are called each day.
Keep close to Jesus as the weeks move on;
It is for knowing Him your heart does crave.

Renewed in faith ~ the days come into being
as Holy Presence fills your heart and soul;
‘Tis all that matters for the present now ~
to be at home ~ ~ ~ at one.

~ Anna Lin
