You Say...

 
You Say…

You say that you’re a pile of dung
That in the meadows lay
I say that you’re a cherished soul
For whom I died to save.

You say that you’re an accident;
Your mother’s foul mistake,
I say that I planned your life
And I love all that I make.

You say that you’re a nothing,
Your life's an empty hole,
But I gave to you a purpose
When I gave to you your soul.

You say that I don't love you,
That God does not exist,
That I cannot hear your prayers
Wouldn't answer if I did.

May I say that I see you,
I see your every tear,
I'm just as real as you are,
And always very near;
Although you cannot see Me,
I'm ever by your side,
I made you to walk with Me
In love, and joy and light.
Not in the darkness of self hate
Nor the spell of devil lies,
I died to free you from his chains
To give You love and life.

Open up your heart to Me,
I'll give to you new eyes,
You will see as I see you
A cherished jewel of Mine.

You will see yourself anew
And I will give you peace,
Love and joy will fill your heart
The darkness then will cease.
    
You must walk by faith, My child
If you would gain new eyes,
To replace your hate with love,
Your darkness with Christ's light.

Come to Me, oh come believe,
Your sorrow put away,
I say that you’re a cherished soul,
For whom I died to save.

Prayer
Heavenly Father, may all who read this prayer poem and these scriptures hear Your voice whispering in their heart that You cherish them more than they could ever comprehend. May You help them know that their life has infinite value, that You make no mistakes, that You love all that You create, that You allowed Your only Son Jesus Christ to suffer, bleed and die like a criminal on a Roman cross of execution over 2000 years ago to prove it so that we all might be forgiven and live forever with you in love and peace. Thank You, Lord, In Jesus' name, amen. 

 "For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.  For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but to save the world through him." John 3:16-17 (NIV)

“But I will hope continually, 
and will yet praise thee more and more.” ~Psalm 71:14

Hope Yet More And More

In You, Oh Lord, I trust,
To You, Oh Lord, I pray,
You will answer me
Though I may have to wait.

Lord, You are my Shelter,
You hide me from the storm
I'll bring to You a sacrifice
Of praises, love and joy.

Oh Lord, You are my hope,
Despite the bitter night,
You are my holy lamp
Making all my darkness light.

Oh Lord, You made the night,
The sea, and every storm;
In You my soul will hope,
And praise You more and more.

Oh Lord, You are my hope,
My Holy God of Truth,
My everlasting Shelter,
I’ll ever wait on You.

In You, oh Lord, I trust,
My soul You’ll not forsake,
I’ll hope in You forever, Lord,
And sing Your praise always,
In Jesus’ name,
Amen.

Prayer
Heavenly Father, thank You for Thy gift of hope You give to us when we go through dark tunnels of fear and doubt; storms of affliction and pain, seasons of waiting on the answers to our prayers like the Israelites in the wilderness waiting 40 years for their Promised Land. 
Thank You for the comfort of Thy word that assures us that You never fail, You never lie, that You never break a promise. 
Psalm 146:6 assures us that You keep every promise forever, even as You did for Your Hebrew children in the ancient desert sand so long ago. 
Thy word tells us that You have no favorites; what You did for them, You will do for Thy children today who are trusting and waiting on You. 
May You give us grace to trust You, to believe in all Thy promises, to wait patiently for Thy plans to unfold, for Your plans for each one of us are good, if we will only wait on You to fulfill them. 
Thank You, Lord, we love You, in Jesus' name, amen. 🙏
