“The Joy”, a worship poem from L.Willows (See Jesus, Holiness of God, God’s Peace)

The Joy

We live for, we love for
The times that Joy seeks
Hope in the prayers,
In the dreams that we keep.

Whispered in twilight,
Held through the night,
Born in bright trails
of starlight’s deep sleep.

Here is the peace of
Holy- Love’s send.
Season; the deep dive
that tenders the soul’s mend.

Hope, in the night winds
carried by Dawn’s song.
Soft, comes the Light
that The Joy brings along.

James 1:2 —Count it all joy, my brothers, when you meet trials of various kinds.

Ephesians 3:20 — Now to Him who is able to do far more abundantly beyond all that we ask or think, according to the power that works within us.

Luke 2:10 —  But the angel said to them, “Do not be afraid; for behold, I bring you good news of great joy which will be for all the people.

John 3:29 — He who has the bride is the bridegroom; but the friend of the bridegroom, who stands and hears him, rejoices greatly because of the bridegroom’s voice. So this joy of mine has been made full.

1 Peter 1:8 —and though you have not seen Him, you love Him, and though you do not see Him now, but believe in Him, you greatly rejoice with joy inexpressible and full of glory.

“Glory-Amen”, a worship poem from L.Willows (Jesus Christ, Hope, Holiness of God, our yes)

God imparts Holy River
so near, from above.
Abounding, resounding-
in Him we pray love.
With Splendor the doors
of Creation do part-
and we breathe, we receive
His Merciful Heart.

There, in Love’s core
we witness a Birth.
Something; a Miracle,
born on God’s Earth
rushing with hope,
called from the unseen…
Grace runs like new waters
in her deepest ravines.

Glory – Amen,
all promise from then.
Deliver The Hope
to rise once again.
Come Holy River
and speak of His Name.
Holy, called Holy-
God comes to reclaim.

Our Yes in the rushing
of Waters that pray
Glory to God
in the Amen of new Day.

2 Corinthians 5:15 —Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation. The old has passed away; behold, the new has come.

Ephesians 2:4-5 —But God, being rich in mercy, because of the great love with which he loved us, even when we were dead in our trespasses, made us alive together with Christ—by grace you have been saved.
