“In The Wind That Runs Love” a Worship Poem from L.Willows (Holy, God’s Spirit, Blessing)

IN THE WIND THAT RUNS LOVE

Holy God, Your song, is in the Wind that runs Love,
whispering and praying as thousands of doves.
There we see the majesty, in heaven’s deep blue.
With wonder, we ponder the mysteries of You.

Bring to the fore the hearts that shine grace.
Fill every need in The Lord’s deep embrace.
Yours from the Beginning to the End and then more,
for every tomorrow – we enter Love’s Door.

Come, Holy Blessings in a raincloud that bursts,
Sweeten heart hopes, as The Father fills thirst.
Run with the Winds of Love’s prayer freed,
lifted by the Grace of divine intercede. 

Yours in the Wind-songs, our voices call Home,
in worship that gathers, swept from all roam.
Holy- Your song, in the Wind that runs Love.
Whispering, and praying as thousands of doves.

Deuteronomy 28:2 –“The Lord through Moses said, “And all these blessings shall come on you, and overtake you, if you obey the voice of the LORD your God.”

Acts 2:2 —And suddenly there came from heaven a sound like a mighty rushing wind, and it filled the entire house where they were sitting.

“Whispering Winds”, a poem by L.Willows (Holy Spirit, Revival, Holy Joy, Hope)

Whispering Winds

Whispering winds dance
with treetops in clouds lace
Smiling in drifts
that go by without haste.

There in the dawn,
we witness God’s Face
Rising again,
from the night with such grace.

Windowsill’s light
and open with hope.
Therein, Hearts chatter
and sing the mornings elope.

Birds take to the air
in the new days excite.
Gathering with all –
God’s wondrous invite.

This Holy moment,
His Breath in the freeing-
The Joy that invites
all life to Love’s Being.

“Puritan Prayer, The Deeps”, from The Valley of Vision (Repentance, Lordship of Jesus Christ, Grace)

The Deeps

Lord Jesus, give me a deeper repentance, a horror of sin, a dread of its approach. Help me chastely to flee it and jealously to resolve that my heart shall be Yours alone.

Give me a deeper trust, that I may lose myself to find myself in You, the ground of my rest, the spring of my being.

Give me a deeper knowledge of Yourself as saviour, master, lord, and king.

Give me deeper power in private prayer, more sweetness in Your Word, more steadfast grip on its truth.

Give me deeper holiness in speech, thought, action, and let me not seek moral virtue apart from You.

Plough deep in me, great Lord, heavenly husbandman, that my being may be a tilled field, the roots of grace spreading far and wide, until You alone are seen in me, Your beauty golden like summer harvest, Your fruitfulness as autumn plenty.

I have no master but You, no law but Your will, no delight but Yourself, no wealth but that You give, no good but that You bless, no peace but that You bestow.

I am nothing but that You make me. I have nothing but that I receive from You. I can be nothing but that grace adorns me.

Quarry me deep, dear Lord, and then fill me to overflowing with living water.

Amen
