“All The Love That was Told”, a worship poem from L.Willows (Grace, Mercy, Hope)

All The Love That was Told

Facing the Beloved we ask, we long,
Seeking His Peace we hope, hearts hold on.
Throughout different journeys,
Throughout times that quest,
Here are His Children, held dear to His chest.

Strengthened by a faith that deepens with time.
Met with unmeasured amounts of Love’s brine.
Here in a valley that is softened by grace,
Here walk those tendered by mercy’s sweet pace.

Held by the Beloved, we pray, we see.
Seeking His Face, we live, walking free.
In places unknown, some new, some old-
there walk his Children that dare to be bold.
Caring, they share all the Love that was Told.

Genesis 28:15
Behold, I am with you and will keep you wherever you go, and will bring you back to this land. For I will not leave you until I have done what I have promised you.”

2 Corinthians 12:19
But he said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.” Therefore I will boast all the more gladly of my weaknesses, so that the power of Christ may rest upon me.

2 Corinthians 1:20-22
For all the promises of God find their Yes in him. That is why it is through him that we utter our Amen to God for his glory.  And it is God who establishes us with you in Christ, and has anointed us, and who has also put his seal on us and given us his Spirit in our hearts as a guarantee.

“Hold This Dear Mountain”, a poem from L.Willows

Hold this Dear Mountain

My heart does long for a mountain to hold
with deep embrace and prayers that unfold
into the sweetened winds, as all things are told.

Do you see the rock, the boulder, the tree?
They are each a friend, they are dear to me.
The mountain waits; the ancients see.
They bid my heart, they set me free.

Rocky heights rush towards a heaven rare,
Oh Holy Spirit, I feel Thee there!
My Own is lifted, endowed in the Air.

My soul soars throughout, as on the wings of a dove
In embrace with the Earth,  held so rare, high above.
Nature’s shoulders keep vigil, they see; they love.
Oh, hold this dear Mountain, it’s the Lord’s Treasure Trove.

Psalm 61:2 –-From the end of the earth I call to you when my heart is faint. Lead me to the rock that is higher than I.

Psalm 62:7-8 –On God rests my salvation and my glory; my mighty rock, my refuge is God. Trust in him at all times, O people; pour out your heart before him; God is a refuge for us. Selah

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

unusual-strange-clouds-8-3 (1)

I know sweet circles, like clouds in my heart.
Far from here, they do not part.
If they wander, if they stray.
A love wind brings them back this way.

Called to be by an unseen hand
here they rest, there they stand.
Coddled all beside one Guest,
A might that gathers all as Blessed.

When the winds of life, stirred become
stormed, or rifted, pulled by some –
Here within a Life abides
comfort 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 sweeping through
like heaven’s dust from clouds gone by
There I am, a child of His,
blessed and swept into love’s sky.
