To Busy To Be Still ~

Often we find ourselves,
too busy to stay still
that we become careless
searching for God’s will.

Our lives are so chaotic,
obsessively constricted
that our time alone with God
is neglectfully restricted.

Often we find ourselves,
on God not at all waiting
and our lives become
discouragingly frustrating.

Our days run together,
weeks become but a blur
that we cannot even sense
when the Holy Spirit stirs.

Often we find ourselves,
in a headlong, frantic rush
when God would rather instill . . .
His stillness into us!

Psalm 46:10a

Be still,
and know
that I am God:

Depressurize ~

When I feel the need,
to depressurize . . .
I shut my mouth
and close my eyes.

For when I am still,
I can decompress
and think about why
I’m so very blessed.

When I feel the need,
to completely unwind
I open up my heart
and shut down my mind.

For when I’m at rest,
God can release
into my soul
His perfect peace.

When I feel the need,
to depressurize . . .
it’s so God’s calm in me
He can internalize!

~~~~~~~~

Colossians 3:15

And let the peace of God
rule in your hearts,
to the which also ye are
called in one body;
and be ye thankful.

Waiting and Biding ~

Waiting,
is just plain no fun
biding . . .
isn’t easily done.

But, God tells us,
to be still and quiet
to make daily prayer
a part of our diet.

Waiting . . .
can take so long
patience . . .
takes being strong.

But, when we follow,
Jesus’ teachings . . .
God will answer
all of our pleadings.

Waiting . . . .
is a faith trusting thing
bidding . . .
is to on Jesus cling!

Lamentations 3:25

The Lord is good unto them
that wait for him, to the
soul that seeketh him.

John 15:7

“If ye abide in me,
and my words abide in you,
ye shall ask what ye will,
and it shall be done unto you.

Pressure Cooker Faith ~

Pressure cooker faith,
always in a hurry . . .
often blows a gasket
in its frenzy flurry.

Frantic and strained,
always under duress
pressure cooker faith
holds inside a lot stress.

Pressure cooker faith,
full of nervousness
bursting at the seams
in the stew anxiousness.

Strives so very hard,
to control its composure
pressure cooker faith
can’t help but boiler over.

Pressure cooker faith,
always ready to blow
needs inside instead . . .
God’s peace to flow!

2 Thessalonians 3:16

Now the Lord of peace himself
give you peace always by all means.
The Lord be with you all.

Not Up For Debate ~

Sometimes God takes,
His slow sweet time . . .
as His plans and mine
don’t seem to align.

For, I want to know,
what to do right now
yet, He’d rather me bide
till He can show me how.

Sometimes God asks,
me to sit and wait
and I know it’s a topic
not up for debate.

For, I know His timing,
is always the best
and He is holding back
so I will learn to rest.

Sometimes God plans,
for me are impending . . .
to see if on His timing
He’ll find me depending!

The counsel of the Lord

Oh, If I Could Fly Away ~

Oh, if I could fly away,
I’d soar into my Savior’s arms
there I would find my quiet rest
and be safe from all that harms.

I would take off and reside,
under the shadow of His wings
I’d be free from all the strife
living in this world often brings.

Oh, if I could fly away,
like an eagle I’d mount and rise
and climb to where His peace
would calm my fearful cries.

I would go right up to Him,
lay my burdens at His feet
and with Jesus I would find
my everlasting retreat.

Oh, if I could fly away,
if I had wings like a dove
I’d soar right up to heaven
and rest in His eternal love.

I would climb so ever high,
till I found His stillness
I would dive into His calm
and sop up His quietness.

Oh, if I could fly away,
I’d take you along with me . . .
and together we’d find rest
throughout all of eternity!

~~~~~~~~~

Psalm 55:6

“And I said, Oh that I had wings like a
dove! for then would I fly away, and be
at rest.”

While I Wait and See~

I do a lot of waiting,
while God is contemplating
the answers to my prayers
while going through my cares.

I do a lot of sitting,
while God begins sifting
the replies He has for me
in this seat of wait and see.

I do a lot of hoping,
while God starts His probing
into His correspondence
while pondering my response.

I do a lot of supposing,
while God is composing
what He’d have me to do
while I sit not knowing what to.

I do a lot of imagining,
while God is examining
how long I am willing
to be sitting here chilling!

~~~~~~~

Psalm 27:13-14

I had fainted, unless
I had believed to see
the goodness of the Lord
in the land of the living.

Wait on the Lord:
be of good courage,
and he shall strengthen
thine heart: wait,
I say, on the Lord.

The Sound Of Silence ~

Upon the break of day,
I feel a calming stillness . . .
where everything appears
to be oddly motionless.

The sedated quietness,
infiltrates the early dawn
to the sound of silence
I find myself gently drawn.

The placid tranquility,
awakens up my soul
to ponder how only God
could this quietude control.

The peace radiating down,
seems so imaginable
that in its grip I remain
completely immovable.

Surrounded in the silence,
I sense this to be
just the kind of stillness . . .
that Jesus wants for me!

Psalm 46:10

Be still, and know that I am God:

When Fear Chases You ~

When fear chases you,
before you get caught
there is a refuge . . .
for you God has got.

It’s a place of safety,
for you to run into
where dread and panic
cannot overtake you.

When your heart starts,
frantically racing
and your hands begin
violently shaking.

Run to the fortress,
of peace and trust
for it is where God
promises to meet us.

Before fear chases you,
into a dreadful fright
into God’s shelter . . .
run with all your might!

~~~~~~~~

Psalm 91:1-2

“He that dwelleth in the
secret place of the most
High shall abide under
the shadow of the Almighty.

I will say of the Lord,
He is my refuge and my
fortress: my God;
in him will I trust.”

God Gives Shade ~

God gives shade,
to us when weary
provides a cover
when we’re dreary.

He shadows us with,
His mighty wings
helps us to rise
above all things.

God gives shade,
to us when frayed
provides a screen
when burden lade.

He shields us with,
His right hand
holds us upright
when we can’t stand.

God gives shade,
to us when dismayed
so His glory on us . . .
can be displayed!

Psalm 121:5

“The Lord is thy keeper:
the Lord is thy shade upon
thy right hand.”

Give Us Peace Lord ~

Give peace, Lord, give us peace,
on our heavy hearts bestow
the peace that surpasses . . .
all the worries that we know.

Give peace, Lord, give us peace,
to our dreary, weary souls
give us idyllic, flawless peace
over things we can’t control.

Give peace, Lord, give us peace,
to our fidgety, fretful minds
give us staying, trusting peace
to leave our troubles behind.

Give peace, Lord, give us peace,
to our worried, wary spirits
give us lulling, calming peace
before we reach our limits.

Give peace, Lord, give us peace,
Your quiet, quelling peace impart
into our flustered, frantic lives . . .
til it saturates our restless heart!

bless his people with peace.”

Just Chillin’ With My Lord ~

Today I am chillin’,
not going to get bothered
won’t let one little thing take
my peace from my Father.

I’m just going to kick back,
and rest here all the day
I’m not going to let anything
take our oneness away.

Today I’m taking it easy,
not going to get uptight
instead I will just soak in
all of Jesus’ calming light.

I’m just going to relax,
in the warmth of His love
and let His grace beam
down on me from above.

Today, I am chillin’
just me and my Lord
and if I fall asleep . . .
it’s not because I’m bored!

~~~~~~~

Psalm 4:8

“I will both lay me down in peace,
and sleep: for thou, Lord,
only makest me dwell in safety.”

A Quiet Place ~

Thank You Lord,
for giving me
a place to go
when I’m weary.

A quiet spot,
for my mind
and Your peace
to come in line.

Thank You Lord,
for meeting me
when to You
I run and flee.

A hidden retreat,
for my heart
so more grace
You can impart.

Thank You Lord,
for being there
when I bring You
my daily care!

May you lie down and sleep,
with dreams of green pastures

For in peace He came,
so we could find
peace to guard and keep

Peace Jesus offers,
to all who inquire
if it is truly . . .
their heart’s desire.

For He promises,
peace perfect
to minds on Him
that reflect.

Peace Jesus left,
for all of us
now we must . . .
in this trust!

In every way,
you can find
peace for both

All you have to do,
is to pray
and Jesus’ peace
He’ll send your way.

It doesn’t matter,

Resting With My Father ~

Today I am resting,
alone with my Father
none of my worries
my soul will bother.

I am going to soak up,
the peace He imparts
I am going to let it fill
the whole of my heart.

Today I’m taking it,
with my Father easy
none of my troubles
will make me queasy.

I’m fixing my eyes,
on my treasure up above
where I’ll be surrounded
by the glory of His love.

Today I am relaxing,
with my Father all alone
I’m going to be resting
at the foot of His throne!

Focus On Jesus ~

Some days good thoughts,
are hard to keep
sometimes it’s not easy
not to let the bad ones creep.

But, those who stay,
focused on the Lord
peace in their minds
will become shored.

Some days just crush,
our spirit’s into shards
sometimes it’s impossible
our hearts to guard.

But those who remain,
on the Lord centered
peace in their souls
will keep them sheltered.

Some days tranquility,
seems unobtainable . . .
but, those who focus on Jesus
will have peace unexplainable!

~~~~~~~

“And the peace of God,
which passeth all understanding,
shall keep your hearts

Engulfed In Silence ~

When my heart,
I turn over to silence
when I let it listen
for God’s guidance.

I experience a hush,
an inner stillness
as I let His Spirit
to my soul witness.

When my mind,
I turn over to calmness
when I let it reflect
on all God’s promises.

I feel the tranquility,
only He can provide
as I let His Spirit
my thoughts guide.

When my heart and mind,
are engulfed in silence
God reveals to me . . .
how His peace is timeless!

When Sleep Eludes You ~

When sleep eludes you,
on these things dwell upon
and before you know it
it will be a new dawn . . .

I will in perfect peace,
cause you to lie down
so come and rest on Me
I promise to stay around.

I will keep you safe,
all throughout the night
and when you awake
it’ll be to My light.

My ears are open,
to your every care
let Me have them now
so each one I can bear.

In My bottle I collect,
the drops of your tears
so trust Me tonight
with all of your fears.

This evening may be,
full of tears and sorrow
but, joy will come I promise
upon a new tomorrow!

God’s Retreat of Peace ~

When you’re exhausted,
overwhelmed and weak
when all around you
appears cold and bleak.

That’s when you need,
God’s Refuge of tranquility
where from your troubles
you’ll find carefree, serenity.

When from the pressure,
you need to get out from under
when life seems to be
one blunder after another.

That’s when you need,
to take a breather
with God your Rock
and Fortress keeper.

When you are washed-out,
and in need of some rest . . .
in God’s retreat of peace
with calm, you’ll be blessed!

Jesus, My Calm ~

Lord, thank You for being,
my calm before the storm
for bringing me peace . . .
before it starts to form.

For, I never know,
when one I’ll go through
and when I do . . .
I want it to be with You.

Lord, thank You for going,
into the storm with me
there’s no one else
with whom I’d rather be.

For, only You can still,
my fears that fall and crest
and provide for me
an anchor on which to rest.

Lord, thank You for being,
my calm after the storm
for bringing me back to . . .
a place safe and warm!

~~~~~~~~

We all need a break,
from the daily rush
we all need God . . .
our hearts to hush.

We all need peace,
calming, silent quietness
we all need God . . .
to shush us with stillness.

We all need a break,
from the daily grind
we all need God . . .
to give us peace of mind!
