Beauty Fair

Isaiah 61:3 – To appoint unto them that mourn in Zion, to give unto them beauty for ashes, the oil of joy for mourning, the garment of praise for the spirit of heaviness; that they might be called trees of righteousness, the planting of the Lord, that he might be glorified. 

BEAUTY FOR ASHES

I will take the ashes turn them into beauty fair.I will take your hurting soul and heal it with My care.I will take the weariness from trudging uphill milesand turn it into restfulness with strength for every trial.I will take the saddened face and tears that flow like rainand paint a smile with joyous stroke, in Love allay the pain.I will take confusion’s grasp, put wisdom in its stead,and I will set you free from fear, anxiety and dread.New paths I’ll lead you on and doors I’ll open just for youthat you may know I am the Lord of all you seek to do.I’ll hold your hand, if you’ll allow, if you’ll believe in me.I’ll always walk close by your side, now and eternally.You’ll never have to be alone, we’ll fellowship in prayer.Yes, I, the Lord, have spoken and will keep you in My care.For I’m your Savior, Jesus, and I died that you might live.Call on me in faith and I will all your sins forgive.Your life will be like flakes of snow, no stain or spot to see,For I will cleanse you inside out if you’ll believe in Me.

In His Love,

Be Still And Know

Psalms 77:1-2 - I cried unto God with my voice, even unto God with my voice and he gave ear unto me. In the day of my trouble I sought the Lord: my sore ran in the night, and ceased not: my soul refused to be comforted. I remembered God and was troubled: I complained, and my spirit was overwhelmed. Selah.

 BE STILL MY CHILD

My precious child why do you doubt the love I have for you. Your troubled soul, the weary mind, each day begin anew. You cannot seem to grasp my hand or feel my warm embrace. You will not let your eyes meet mine or gaze into my face. The pain you feel in tortured thoughts, and life’s rejections sore, begin a downward spiral as you pace upon the floor. Reasoning and questioning with answers seldom found, have left you broken, wounded, lying helpless on the ground. Your spirit now is overwhelmed as darkened paths you trod. Those troubles may seem large to you but I’m a great big God. Though nights are long and restless spent, and midnight seems as dawn, you can’t find peace, you cannot speak, for comfort how you long. But my sweet child I’ve come today from someplace faraway. I’m knocking now at your heart’s door, don’t turn and run away. For I am all you’ll ever need so dry the many tears. I love you without measure, child, there is no need to fear. For what you thought was hopelessness and sorrow without end, was just your Savior, Jesus, asking you to let Him in. Put down your pride, forsake the wrath, and throw earth’s weapons down. You will not need them here with me all decked in robe and crown. I died for you, my lovely bride, and rose to give you life. I rose to cleanse each part of you, give peace instead of strife. Look to me and learn of me, let Love become your Guide. Receive the greatness that I Am, from others this not hide. For when I made you, darling child, I knew you were the best. Everything about you soon will glow above the rest. My strength I will pour into you for times when you are weak. You’ll feel it surging through your life as more of me you seek. For I am He that called you forth, I knew you in the womb. And though you’ve felt so all alone, I’ve come to comfort you. I’ve come to rescue you, dear one, and save your pining soul. I’ve come to make my home in you, your heart a new abode. Just ask me in and soon you’ll see the greatest Love of all, was waiting ever patiently until you heard my call. And yes my lovely bride I see you clothed in glowing white. There’s no more scarlet anywhere, sin’s stains are gone from sight. The failures, doubts and fears you felt have all been washed away, by Jesus’ blood at Calvary, you’re all brand new today. Yes, baby girl, your days will now be sweet and filled with peace. I’ve given you a new song in the night to help you sleep. So come each day and talk to me, I’ll fellowship with you. And you will grow so close to me, you’ll not find love so true. Yes we will have communion that will stir your soul to fly. You’ll soon be mounting up with eagles, soaring in the sky. I’ve given you my kingdom, it’s tucked deep within your heart. And this I promise you, beloved, it never shall depart. In summer gaze upon the sun and feel its presence warm. At night you’ll marvel darkened skies with stars like glitter blown. In springtime walk the garden lane, the roses’ scents inhale, for all earth’s beauty I have made, though to your beauty pale. In autumn see the many hues, the yellows, reds and gold, and know I painted every leaf for your eyes to behold. Yes winter’s one more time of year that sparkles ever new, for all is covered white and soft with snow as fresh as dew. So know my child the greatness of your God and all He’s done, to save you and to bless you in the person of His Son.

The grace of our Lord Jesus be with you all!

In His Love,

Lynda Signature
