Wrapped in God’s Nature

Heart curves to the Face of such beauty seen,
His Nature’s sweet bidding upon tender lights gleaned,
easing all burdens and the graspings that lean,
in the ancient cathedral of God’s sweet serene.

Come close and allow us to breathe all of You
Love blesses each morning that sprinkles Your dew,
I pray into Your wonders as they wrap us full through,
Your Hidden – what Beauty! We are safe in Your pew.

The Heavens fly through in the treetop’s soft swing.
The Cathedral is hushed by the joy of our King.
Wrapped in His nature, the Peace of God sings.
And loved in Forever, we rejoice worshiping.

One thing I have asked from the LORD, that I shall seek: That I may dwell in the house of the LORD all the days of my life, To behold the beauty of the LORD And to meditate in His temple. Psalm 27:4

Your eyes will see the King in His beauty; They will behold a far-distant land.
Isaiah 33:17

Let the heavens rejoice, let the earth be glad; let the sea resound, and all that is in it. Let the fields be jubilant, and everything in them; let all the trees of the forest sing for joy.
Psalm 96:11-12

“In The Arms of Grace”, a poem from L.Willows (Grace, Hope in God, A New Day)

In The Arms of Grace

Somewhere,
in the day that tomorrow brings,
I see you smiling.
Your eyes are sparkling with the dances
that light in a new horizon.


You are gathering,
swelling, like waters that fill into rivers
that pour Love into view,
You are new.

Somewhere,
in the day that tomorrow brings
I see you healed,
your sweetened heart revealed.
In an eternal embrace,
you are in the arms of grace.

There you are,
in the dawn
that rises up to meet you,
wrapped by tender mercies
and a blanket of prayers.

There.
Entwined, encouraged, and seen.
You are with each good thing.
You are inside of hope’s dream.
There. I see you.

There you are.
dear beloved,
not a far smile away
,
waking in the Promise of a bold new Day.

Ecclesiastes 3:11 —He has made everything beautiful in its time. Also, he has put eternity into man’s heart, yet so that he cannot find out what God has done from the beginning to the end.

Isaiah 43:18-19 —“Remember not the former things, nor consider the things of old. Behold, I am doing a new thing; now it springs forth, do you not perceive it? I will make a way in the wilderness and rivers in the desert.

From Heaven’s Glove”, a worship poem from L.Willows (Blessing, God’s Love)

I rest in soft circles, lace clouds in my heart.
Far from there, peace does not part.
If it wanders, if it strays.
God’s love wind brings it back this way.

Called to be by an unseen hand
here it lives in a sweetened homeland.
Coddled all beside one Guest,
with might that gathers all as Blessed.

When the winds of life, stirred become
stormed, or rifted, pulled by some –
Here within, such Life abides
comforted, tendered from all sides.

Drawn like dew from heaven’s glove,
soaked into each circle of –
this heart of mine with hesed love,
given all from God above.

Thankfulness comes in sweeping hues
like heaven’s dust in the morning dew. 
There I am, His child, my why…
blessed and swept into Love’s sky.
