GODS GARDEN
edentopsmall.jpg

1)
GODS GARDEN
There is a beautiful garden somewhere
Where roses in all their colourful splendour
Grow in great profusion, their perfume blending
With the scent of carnations of every colour
There are daffodils shining in the sunlight
Pansies lifting up their faces to the light
Lovely white lilies standing in their purity
The little violets hiding under the bushes
Patients growing along the borders
The noble delphiniums standing tall
Daisies, Sweet Alice and many many more
This is Gods flower garden where
Flowers of every kind grow together
In peace and harmony.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
2)
WORDS.
We must be careful of the words we speak,
We must choose our words carefully.
For words once spoken, cannot be recalled.
One wrong word can pierce like an arrow,
The wound may never be healed.
So please think carefully, before uttering
Something hurtful or unkind.
A kind word can be healing.
Can be like ointment on a wound.
So choose your words carefully,
When speaking at any time.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
3)
BELONGING.
We belong to God, we are his.
But He does not force himself upon us.
He has given us freedom of will
To choose if we want to belong.
When we really believe in God
and choose to seek Him,
Then we must do so
With all our heart and soul
For when we do seek him
He is waiting with open arms.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
4)
JESUS IS KING.
Jesus Christ is King.
King of all creation.
Everything created is His.
His reign is forever,
And never ever will end.
Let Jesus reign in your life,
Let your hear be filled with Him.
He will lovingly guide you,
And never lead you astray.
Jesus Christ is King
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
5)
THE KINGDOM OF GOD.
What is the kingdom of God
And where d we find it?
The kingdom is of righteousness
And its citizens all righteous
The kingdom is good news
To those who seek to find it.
We will enter into the kingdom
When we are born from above
The kingdom is a place of peace
Of joy, of love, of hope.
The kingdom is within us
When we accept his love
In the kingdom of his light
We will all delight
The kingdom of God is everlasting
And Jesus Christ is King.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
6)
WHAT JESUS MEANS TO ME.
I would like to share with you
What Jesus means to me
He is my Saviour, my Lord, my God.
In my life He reigns supreme,
Without Him I would be nothing,
My life would have no meaning.
Putting Jesus first in everything,
Makes life so much brighter.

Jesus comforts me in sorrow.
He strengthens me when I am weak.
When temptation comes my way,
He gives me the power to overcome.
He forgives me for my past mistakes
And gives me courage to face today
He is my ever present help
And my hope for times to come

It fills my heart with joy and delight,
Just to be alive in Christ
It gives me peace and contentment
To rest trustfully in his care
I love my Lord with all my heart
He means everything to me
For he loved me so very much
He gave his life for me.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
7)
JESUS MY BROTHER.
I never had a brother, now Jesus is one to me
Big and strong and protective as a brother should be
When a friend is needed, Jesus is there for me
I go to him for brotherly advice, he counsels me
When in any need at all, there is no one better to call
Than our Lord Jesus, the greatest brother of all.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
8)
A BEAUTIFUL PLACE.
Rising early morning before the sun,
I see the mists in the valley,
Shining like a silver sea,
Oh what a lovely sight to see
Then as the sun begins to rise
I receive a delightful surprise,
For the mists begin to glow
What a glorious sight to behold
As the sun rises higher
The mists begin to lift
Revealing a beautiful green valley
That was hidden below
Thank you O gracious God
For this place I call home
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
9)
LIFE IS BEAUTIFUL.
Bells ringing inside my head?
No! The alarm beside my bed.
Come on sleepyhead open your eyes,
Wake up, its time to rise.
Look outside its a lovely day,
Quick get up be on your way.
Dont waste time, enjoy every minute,
Life is beautiful, delight in it.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
10)
HIGHWAY OF HOLINESS.
Walk along the highway
The highway of holiness
Let Jesus lead the way
And follow in his footsteps
Walk along the highway
The highway of holiness
For this is the only way
To find true happiness.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
11)
THE BEST THINGS.
Dancing in the fire light
Dazzled by the fire bright
I cried, when I singed my wings
How can I fly to better things
There came a voice from within
With advice on how to win
Fly away from the deadly fires
Of earthly pleasures and desires
Fly into the heavenly light
That shines from Jesus
Lord of the best things.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
12)
EXPRESSING MY LOVE.
Wondering how my love to express
I heard that inner voice speak
Love me with your heart and spirit
Let your spirit loose
To swoop and swirl and soar
Let your imagination
Expand the dimension
The love you have for me
Let your spirit loose
And like a silken veil in the wind
Dancing and whirling in gay abandon
Your spirit will fly higher and higher
With the love that I desire.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
13)
A WINNER IN CHRIST.
When some trouble falls on you
Dont let it get you down
Imagine it as a ball
Climb atop of it and roll

If some burdens come upon you
Dont let them make you stoop
Think of them as wings
Put them on and fly

If strife makes you tremble
And sink in the river of life
Imagine it as a sailboat
Jump aboard and skin along

Troubles, burdens or strife
God has given us the power
To overcome them all
To be a winner in Christ.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
14)
THE EYES OF JESUS.
When I look into the eyes of Jesus
Those beautiful, loving eyes
So full of warmth and compassion
I feel myself pulled into them
And, floating like a feather
I fall deeper ever deeper
Down into the very heart
Of the One who is all love.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
15)
BRING THEM TO JESUS.
When some little happening,
begins to make you jittery
Take time out to calm yourself
and ask Jesus to help

When wandering thoughts distract
your attention while praying
Gather them in like straying sheep
and place them before Jesus

His loving concern for us,
covers every part of our life
So whether they be large or small
bring all your troubles to Jesus.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
16)
DAYS BEGINNING.
Dewdrops on the silken petals
Shining in the morning sun
All Gods creatures begin astirring
Another day has begun

Sweet are the songbirds greetings
For the morn that is breaking
Lilting are the heartstrings mine
For the day of Gods making.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
17)
SURRENDER.
Surrender yourself to God
Surrender in sheer delight
Abandon your selfish ways
And walk in his light

Renew yourself in God
Be renewed from within
Become a thing of beauty
Forgiven for your sin

Accept the love of God
Be filled from above
Let his love flow through you
To others who need some love.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
18)
BE A DOER OF THE WORD.
I delight in your word my Lord,
I meditate on your word my Lord,
I chew each word finely,
Then let it into my system,
To motivate and energize me,
To be an active doer,
Of your every word my Lord.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
19)
DECISION TIME.
There must come a time in our life,
To give up all rights to ourselves,
The right to control our own life.
There must come a time to make a decision,
To hand the keys of our life to Jesus.
We must come before the cross,
Humbly, with open heart and mind,
And ask Him to takes us,
And reign as King of our life,
And Master of our soul.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
20)
FLOWERS OF LOVE.
Jesus, the gardener, plants a seed,
A seed of love, in our hearts,
He nurtures it with love and care.
A shoot appears, then some buds,
Then the flowers of love open up,
And in the fullness of time,
Blossom into full bloom.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
21)
OPEN THE DOOR.
Sitting in my room, feeling lost and alone
Heard a knocking, but theres nobody there
I hear whispering, but theres nobody here.
There it is again, why, its inside my head
Im going crazy, I thought to myself.
There it is again, clearer this time.
You say you are God, speaking to me
Then why dont you speak louder so I can hear?
You say you have been knocking to get my attention
How long, God have you been trying?
All my life, you say, but why, Im nobody
You say everybody is somebody to you.
Why can I hear you now God and not before?
You say I have come to the last of myself now
Am I willing to come to you?
Yes God! Oh yes! I am, I will
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
22)
CAN YOU HEAR.
Can you hear the voice of God,
In the songs of the birds of the air.
Can you hear the voice of God,
In the ripple of water over stones.
Can you hear the voice of God,
In the crash of waves on the shore.
Can you hear the voice of God,
In the whistle of wind through trees.
Can you hear the voice of God,
In the laughter of children.
Can you hear the voice of God
in the still of the night.
You may hear the voice of God,
In all of these places.
If you just listen carefully.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
23)
THE TRUEST FRIEND OF ALL.
A true friend is someone who is there for you.
Someone you can rely on always.
A true friend can always be trusted,
To be there when you call on them.
A true friend will never forsake you,
When danger looms ahead.
A true friend will always support you,
When you need lifting up.
A true friend will always be by your side,
When you are feeling lonely.
We have a friend who is all of this,
Jesus is His name.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

PICKING PETALS FROM A DAISY.
He loves me
Yes Jesus loves me,
For the Bible tells me so.
He loves me not:
Not because I deserve it
It is just so.
He loves me:
In spite of all my flaws
And failings
He loves me not:
But not some of the things
I may do
He loves me;
This wonderful truth helps me
through each day
He loves me not:
Nothing can separate me
from the love of Jesus
Just one more petal to go
It makes me happy to know
He loves me
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
25)
I SEE, I HEAR, I WALK.
I see
With failing eyesight
I see
The light of Jesus
Shining
Brightly
I hear
Not with diminishing hearing
But with my heart
I hear
The words of Jesus
I love you
Follow me
I walk
Albeit it with stumbling steps
I walk
Following
Him
