Our pastor (Pastor Tom Holliday) said that “God speaks to us in a lullaby” meaning that He draws near to us with such abounding grace, forgiveness, and generous love that we almost can’t fathom it with our mortal hearts. After a tender sermon on John 3:16-21, my heart felt full. I feel the reach of God’s Love. We can be encouraged by responding to the hope that comes from Our Lord Jesus Christ. (August 08.2019)
The lullaby comes near to us
softly, sweetly in life’s hush.
like a river run in dance at dawn
with waters new, filled with God’s song.
Times can burden, trials restrict.
Wandering through the haze conflicts.
Yet here in the midst of all from above-
the miracle of – God’s Love, God’s Love.
The Lullaby, from the deep intones,
it whispers, “Here. Here is home.”
We wrap our hearts around, around-
called by God’s song, our hearts rebound.
He takes our burdens and lift our lives.
Draws nears to us from ancient hive.
And Lulled by Love in sweeping dive-
we hope and live in sweetened revive.

John 3:16-21 –“For God so loved the world, that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life. For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but in order that the world might be saved through him.”
Romans 15:13 –“May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, so that by the power of the Holy Spirit you may abound in hope.”
Zephaniah 3:17 –“The Lord your God is in your midst, a mighty one who will save; he will rejoice over you with gladness; he will quiet you by his love; he will exult over you with loud singing.”
