“This, but a Moment”, a Praise poem from L.Willows (joy, His glory)

BelovedEcclesiastes3

This, but a Moment

Do you see what I see
in the slant of sun’s crest?
Do you hear all Gods’ beauty in the colors that rest?

Greens in the hollow of deepening curves,
Mint mists that follow the whispering birds.
Blue touches with promise, they hover above,
almost embracing, covering like love.

There in the fields, I see buds lifted sweet-
colored like honey, rising to greet.
All in the midst of the afternoon sun,
this but a moment, a glorious one.

Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things.
Philippians 4:8

He has made everything beautiful in its time. He has also set eternity in the human heart; yet no one can fathom what God has done from beginning to end.
Ecclesiastes 3:11

“Eternity’s Prayer”, from L.Willows

 

Lord lead our hearts.
Bring us faithfully together in your love.
Find us at the gate that leads to peace.
Help us to bend our hearts and lives to your will.

Spirit grant us wisdom.
Open our eyes that we can see.
Find us where we are and gift holy sight.
Show us your glory and light our paths forward.

Christ Be known.
Love, come forward within us and before us all.
Break our hearts, Lord to make our hearts yours.
Sweetly and deeply, forever your own.

In Jesus Name
Amen

Romans 12:1-2
I appeal to you therefore, brothers, by the mercies of God, to present your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and acceptable to God, which is your spiritual worship. Do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewal of your mind, that by testing you may discern what is the will of God, what is good and acceptable and perfect.

John 1:14
And the Word became flesh, and dwelt among us, and we saw His glory, glory as of the only begotten from the Father, full of grace and truth.

Psalm 24:9
Lift up your heads, O gates, And lift them up, O ancient doors, That the King of glory may come in!

“Glory to Him, the All of our till”, a worship poem from L.Willows

c2b20fcf4b1f3057e7609ca416725984

In praise all bows before Your Name
Each leaf on the branch bends green to refrain
Glory to Him, the All of our till
Father and root of each one in His will.

Long and all lasting the winding He keeps
Each Holy vine wrapped around His dear reach.
Forest earth paradise, mortal review
Lasting within The Beloved’s pass-through.

Whispering breezes come home to float peace
Known in Love’s rest, in the garden’s increase.
Here in the lush of God’s paradise apart,
Praise comes to live in the breaths of my heart.

Isaiah 25.1
O LORD, you are my God; I will exalt you; I will praise your name, for you have done wonderful things, plans formed of old, faithful and sure.

Not to us, O Lord, not to us, but to your name give glory, for the sake of your steadfast love and your faithfulness!

“Into the Winds of Eternity’s Herd” a worship poem from L.Willows

29a5bd9d10fb46843dedde17700303db
Before the sky, I bend to my knee
Heaven’s gaze does humble me.
All my heart like a river flows
into God’s ocean, prayers rise- love goes.

Take me into your sea of Light.
Cast my soul. Lift me towards you this night.
Lord my smallness is drawn like a bird,
into the winds of Eternity’s herd.

Make me into what would only be Yours.
Let me be Promise from whom love would pour.
All of my heart like a river flows to
Holy, God’s ocean, the prayers at sky’s pew.

Lord, my smallness is drawn like a bird,
into the winds of Eternity’s herd.

Psalm 19:1
The heavens declare the glory of God; the skies proclaim the work of his hands.

Isaiah 40:26
Lift up your eyes and look to the heavens: Who created all these? He who brings out the starry host one by one and calls forth each of them by name. Because of his great power and mighty strength, not one of them is missing.

Psalm 86:8-10
There is none like thee among the gods, O Lord, nor are there any works like thine. All the nations thou hast made shall come and bow down before thee, O Lord, and shall glorify thy name. For thou art great and doest wondrous things, thou alone art God.
