7-17-14 Rejoice!

rejoice

Rejoice, my friend! Again, I say rejoice!

The Lord is always with you, heart and soul!

Raise up a celebration with your voice!

Tell all the world the Saviour’s in control!

Rejoice though persecuted and distressed,

For great is your reward with Jesus now!

He died that you may be forever blessed,

And have salvation through His solemn vow!

Rejoice! With God’s Great Grace comes ecstasy!

Rejoice and spread the news across the land!

Believe in Jesus, gain serenity!

Christ is the way, the truth, the life at hand!

Rejoice, my fellow saint, we are so loved!

Rejoice! Rejoice, for we are God’s Beloved!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Rejoice in the Lord always:

and again I say, Rejoice!

Philippians 4:4 KJV

7-3-14 Delight (a Sonnet)

delight

Your will is my delight, O Lord above!

Each waking is a trek through Your desire!

I stroll through the sweet garden of Your love

And feel Your spirit’s power draw me higher.

Dear Abba, Your instruction rests within

The inner sanctum of my eager heart.

I see at once the way I should begin

And move with confidence right from the start.

I surely know Your voice and heed Your call

Because I long to please Your ev’ry wish.

My God! This child of Yours does give my all,

And with Your happiness will come my bliss!

This ecstasy can’t help but overflow

Into the world around me with Your glow.

~~~~~~~~~~~~

I delight to do Your will, my God;

Your instruction lives within me.

Psalm 40:8 HCS
