Those rooted and grounded in love,
gladly plant seeds in softened hearts—
Knowing the reward of self-discipline
grows and develops over a life-time.
Year after year they sow,
finally reaping harvest of buds and blooms
of the fruit of self-control.

“The fruit of the Spirit is self-control” Galatians 5:23


Never Doubt My Presence

Never will I leave you

I heard my Father say.

Never will I leave you

Never be dismayed. 

Never fail to believe

My Word to you is true.

All that I have promised

for you my child I’ll do.

Never doubt my presence

to cheer and to guide.

Never fail to believe

the Lord is on your side.

 “God has said, ‘I will never fail you. I will never abandon you.’ ” Hebrews 13:5

Love Kissed the Sky

Love formed and shaped

the mountain backdrop,

with brushes of pink

and shades of blue.

Blended contrast

of light and dark,

and carved out mountains

and valleys.

Love kissed the sky,

reflecting God’s Light and Glory.

And the beauty of God’s creation

bursts on the mountaintop.

Why should God share such beauty with us? 

I believe all Creation declared the beauty and majesty of

God’s Holy Love the moment He spoke it into being—

Yet it took a Savior to brush strokes of love

upon our fallen souls.

Genesis 1, John 1, John 3: 16,17

God Usher’s A New Morning


What is this deep longing

only God can satisfy?

To know Him,

To hear His voice,

To feel the touch of eternal embrace,

And watch Him

Usher in a new morning. 

The steadfast love of the LORD never ceases; his mercies
never come to an end;
 they are new every morning;
great is your faithfulness.

Lamentations 3:22-23
