“Songs of The Dawn”, a worship poem from L.Willows (Hope in God, Heart Prayer, Faith)

Songs of The Dawn

Torrents of heart prayers lift up as love
Entrusted as seedlings to our God from above.
There, with wings that take flight with His doves
Skies are seasoned with reasons thereof.

Reign and become. Find the blessing’s sweet roam.
Go and return, as Your Promise from home.
Sweeten these grounds with Your gentle remind
as we gather in faith in Your Name, our hearts so inclined.

Songs of the dawn, our prayers soak love,
Entrusted as seedlings to our God above.
Here, with longings that ache to pray
Choruses whisper, they rise up each day.

1 John 15:14-15 –And this is the confidence that we have toward him, that if we ask anything according to his will he hears us. And if we know that he hears us in whatever we ask, we know that we have the requests that we have asked of him.

Isaiah 65:24 –Before they call I will answer; while they are yet speaking I will hear.

Isaiah 41:10 –The steadfast love of the Lord never ceases; his mercies never come to an end; they are new every morning; great is your faithfulness. “The Lord is my portion,” says my soul, “therefore I will hope in him.”

“God’s Lullaby”, a worship poem from L.Willows (God’s Love, Grace, Hope)

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)

God’s Lullaby

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.”

“The Love That Grace Brines”, a worship Poem from L.Willows (Grace, Hope, God’s Glory)

The Love That Grace Brines

I see you in the Dawning,
In the love that Grace brines
Covered in starlight
with dew drops from God’s Vine.

There in hope’s garment
Bathed in His Light
The new day stirs wonder
with Holy invite.

I see you in forever
Embraced by Joy’s own
Heart leaping towards
Love’s Holy Throne.

I hear you in the singing
In the nectar that calls
In heart petals that open
Towards heaven’s enthrall.

In the now-time to ever,
from daybreak to then.
I embrace you in the call of God’s faithful, Amen.
