“I Breathe Because”, a worship poem from L.Willows (Revival, Joy, God’s Glory, Holy Yes)

I Breathe Because

I breathe because,
the morning opens before me in splendor
and I am filled with Air
that praises you God Our Father.

Here, the path that I walk upon
bathed in the warmth of the sun rising,
kissed by the breezes of the dawn,
held in the aroma of misted leaves bending,
filled with love rising that calls out Your Name.

The sky opens wide and dips to greet the day.
I cast my heart before you…
Here is the path that I walk upon,
covered with sweet-smelling flowers bearing dew that shines.
Here, in stories filled with mysteries in time,
Here in the midst of tall reaching tree cathedrals
Air comes seeking. Love is teaching.

I breathe because,
the Life you give is new, asking and inviting.
Is there a moment when we step into Air?
Is there a place that we find where to dare?
Here is the path that I walk upon
bathed in the warmth of all that is true
filling each moment with breath – life anew.
This is my Yes Lord; this is my homage to You.

2 Corinthians 1:20 — “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.”

Psalm 30:4-6 —“Sing praises to the Lord, O you his saints, and give thanks to his holy name. For his anger is but for a moment and his favor is for a lifetime. Weeping may tarry for the night, but joy comes with the morning.”

Lamentations 3:22-23 —“The steadfast love of the Lord never ceases; his mercies never come to an end; they are new every morning; great is your faithfulness.”

“Glory-Amen”, a worship poem from L.Willows (Holy Spirit, Hope, A New Creation, our yes)

Glory Amen

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

There, in Love’s core,
we witness a Birth.
There, a Miracle,
born on God’s Earth.
We rush with hope,
called to be known
in Grace running like waters
toward His Throne. 

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

“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 the valley that is softened by grace,
Here walk those tendered by mercy’s sweet pace.

Held by the Beloved, we pray, we see.
Beholding 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.

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.
