Whisper

I heard a voice so softly whisper in my ear
I’m not sure who is speaking. My waking time is near
I roll myself back over and try to go to sleep
The voice returns once more and I ask the voice to speak

My child I want to tell you how much I love you so
How much I want to bless you. More than you could know
I wish to give you blessings to help your faith to grow
So you can spread the message of my love to all below

I rose up out of bed and I put on my shoes
I opened up the curtains. The sunlight filled the room
I went right to my easy chair and began to sing a tune
My spirit sought to praise Him, My worship filled the room

I am so glad you love me. I am so glad you do
I lift my hands in worship and send my love to you
All of my adoration. With every one of praise
I worship you sweet Jesus. I thank you for your grace

I love the story of Elijah. He bursts on the scene out of nowhere, walks into the King’s palace and announces it won’t rain for three years and then walks out. I’m not sure how he got in or how he got out. It was not easy to get to see the king in those days and when you announce something as drastic as a three year drought, I don’t see how the king did not hold him for a bit to find out who he was. Nevertheless, it took a lot of courage to do what Elijah did,

But Elijah did not always have courage. He also got discouraged. After defeating all the servants of Ball, he ran from Jezebel man actually wanted to die. God led him to the side of a mountain and as he was standing there he saw strong wind, an earthquake and fire, but God was not in any of them. He was in the still small voice that spoke to him and encouraged him to keep going.

If a mighty prophet like Elijah can get discouraged, so can we. But in those times, if we listen for that still, small voice we will hear it. God is always talking to us.

2 Chronicles 20:15 King James Version (KJV)
15 And he said, Hearken ye, all Judah, and ye inhabitants of Jerusalem, and thou king Jehoshaphat, Thus saith the LORD unto you, Be not afraid nor dismayed by reason of this great multitude; for the battle is not yours, but God’s.

 

A Single Ray of Light

A single ray of light
Piercing through the night
Bringing on the day
Darkness fades away
Glorious in splendor
Brining sighs of wonder
Oh how I await
That first assuring ray

A single ray of light
Giving me my sight
God’s own holy word
Piercing like a sword
My soul is cleansed each day
His word provides the way
Let it shine so bright
That single ray of light

Oh Lord I need the light
It brings me pure delight
To read the truth each day
To follow in your ways
Please burn within my heart
That each day I will start
By bringing into sight
A single ray of light

 

Effective Prayer

Jesus I Trust You

There are days that I don’t know
Just what God will do
It seems that it find trouble
In everything I do

Then comes disappointment
As I try to work it out
Soon I get discouraged
When things don’t turn about

Its then I hear His still small voice
Calling out my name
I try to listen closely
I’m sure this is what He said

Trust me
Trust my child
Everything is under my control
I always have a plan
And it’s always for your good
Just trust me my child
Just trust me

Once I heard those words
My spirit came alive
Despite my circumstances
I knew I was alright

I lifted up my hands
While a lifted up my voice
Knowing He was with me
Caused me to rejoice

Then with my loudest voice
I worshiped His dear name
I spoke with affirmative
These words I did proclaim

I trust you
Jesus I trust you
You have not ever failed me
You won’t leave now
From now on when the trials come
When storm clouds loom ahead
I’ll trust you
Jesus I’ll trust you

His Love Reaches

All along the way
He is watching over me
When I’m off the path
He will gently guide me
When I slip and fall
He has mercy on me
His loves reaches everywhere I go

Every single day
He is there to comfort me
When the times are hard
He provides for all my needs
When I call to Him
He will meet me on my knees
His love reaches everywhere I go

His love is endless
His love is boundless
His love is more than I deserve
His love is forever
Reaching out to me
His love is a blessing that preserves

His love keeps me from danger
His loves heals when I am sick
His love comfort in my sorrow
His love stays until tomorrow
His love knows my deepest fears
His love dries my every tear
His love reaches everywhere I go

Don’t fear where life will take you
Don’t fear trials that will come
Don’t fear questions of tomorrow
Don’t fear darkness when alone
Don’t fear any situation
That may come your way today
His love reaches everywhere you go
