“We Live in The Embrace”, a worship poem by L.Willows

c9e124c8020884e9f98fd5dd1adc53ef

When love comes near us
our hearts part, we bend
like the palm branches
that swoon to attend.
Here is a Kingdom,
One Heaven for the earth.
Here is a Life calling,
a song of rebirth.

When love comes near us
our hearts part, we bend,
fallen from places
that needed to mend.
Here is a Kingdom,
a passage to peace
Life calling grace forward
that joy may release.

When love comes near us
our hearts part, we bend,
seeking, like children
we lean in, we depend.
Here, in Love’s Kingdom
in the reign of such grace
by the cover of Heaven
we live in the embrace.

Daniel 2:44
And in the days of those kings the God of heaven will set up a kingdom that shall never be destroyed, nor shall the kingdom be left to another people. It shall break in pieces all these kingdoms and bring them to an end, and it shall stand forever,

Matthew 25:34
Then the King will say to those on his right, ‘Come, you who are blessed by my Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world.

Matthew 19:14
But Jesus said, “Let the children alone, and do not hinder them from coming to Me; for the kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these.” The Lord will be king over the whole earth. On that day there will be one Lord, and his name the only name.

Luke 17:21
Nor will they say, ‘Look, here it is!’ or ‘There!’ for behold, the kingdom of God is in the midst of you.”

“Wrapped in His Nature”, a worship poem from L.Willows

znaturefr260108sergivan000 Heart curves to the Face of such beauty seen,
‘Tis Nature’s sweet bidding, these tender lights green.
that ease all burdens and grasping’s that lean,
This ancient cathedral of Gods’ sweet serene.

Come close and allow me to breathe all of You,
Love blesses each morning that sprinkles the dew,
I pray that Your wonders could wrap me full through,
Your Hidden – such Beauty; we are safe in Its pew.

Let me hear the whispers of how the wind sings,
I long to imagine the sweet chords that ring
as the Heavens fly through the trees tops soft swing.
I am wrapped in His Nature, such a winged joy’s King.

One thing I have asked from the LORD, that I shall seek: That I may dwell in the house of the LORD all the days of my life, To behold the beauty of the LORD And to meditate in His temple.
Psalm 27:4

Your eyes will see the King in His beauty; They will behold a far-distant land.
Isaiah 33:17

Let the heavens rejoice, let the earth be glad; let the sea resound, and all that is in it. Let the fields be jubilant, and everything in them; let all the trees of the forest sing for joy.
Psalm 96:11-12

“Words Press upon Page, Light to Kiss”, from LWillows

A48588f1LudmilaNG
Words press upon, page Light to kiss…
as sweet motions that set, this my heart forth in bliss.
Dancing between all the notes that set free
some poet, ago…one that wandered like me.

Hours bless the days with whispers of prose
as I walk in a garden of Winds graced with Rose.
Let me soft speak, even sing in a hushed tone,
some few hallowed words from this Godly Roam.

Leave me and find me, all comes Home now.
I am in the dear fold, of the Lord of the Vow.
Words press upon page Light to kiss…
We each live amongst such Almighty bliss.

1 Peter 1:8-9
Though you have not seen him, you love him; and even though you do not see him now, you believe in him and are filled with an inexpressible and glorious joy, for you are receiving the end result of your faith, the salvation of your souls. See what kind of love the Father has given to us, that we should be called children of God; and so we are.

Isaiah 35:10
and those the LORD has rescued will return. They will enter Zion with singing; everlasting joy will crown their heads. Gladness and joy will overtake them, and sorrow and sighing will flee away.
