Verse of the Day – Psalm 18:30

Psalm 18:30

Psalm 18:30

His word is flawless, His promise relentless, His shield impenetrable, in His shelter we find out who we are made to be.

SHELTER by JARS OF CLAY
To all who are looking down
Holding on to hearts still wounding
For those who’ve yet to find it
The place is near where love is moving
Cast off the robes you’re wearing
Set aside the names that you’ve been given
May this place of rest in the fold of your journey
Bind you to hope
You will never walk alone

In the shelter of each other
We will live
We will live (Never walk alone)
In the shelter of each other
We will live
We will live (Your arms are all around us)

If our hearts are turned to stone
There is hope we know the rocks will cry out
And the tears aren’t ours alone
Let them fall into the hands that hold us
Come away from where you’re hiding
Set aside the lies that you’ve been living
May this place of rest in the fold of your journey
Bind you to hope
We will never walk alone

In the shelter of each other
We will live
We will live (In the shelter)
In the shelter of each other
We will live
We will live (You will never walk alone)

In the shelter of each other
We will live
We will live (In Your arms are all around us)
In the shelter of each other
We will live
We will live (In Your arms are all around us)

If there is any peace
If there is any war
We must all believe
Our lives are not our own
We all belong

God has given us each other
And we will never walk alone

In the shelter of each other
We will live
We will live (We will never walk alone)
In the shelter of each other
We will live
We will live (In the shelter)

In the shelter of each other
We will live
We will live (Your arms are all around us)
In the shelter of each other
We will live
We will live (In Your arms are all around us)

In the shelter of each other
We will live
We will live (In Your arms are all around us)
In the shelter of each other
We will live
We will live (In Your arms are all around us)

In the shelter of each other
We will live
We will live
(In the shelter of each other we will never walk alone – never walk alone)

 

Songs From The Shelter – Psalm 5:11

Songs From The Shelter – Psalm 5:11

Voices of the thankful
Raised from the silence of the night
Sing of song of rejoicing
Of deep felt thanks to our Lord
All safe within His refuge
All singing the same song
Our voices maybe different
In His protection we’re all the same
No matter what our scars
We sing grateful all the same
Our song will reach the nations
Our prayers up to heaven
From where we sing in His shelter
Knowing that many more will join us

Psalm 5:11

Psalm 5:11

Shadows (Psalm 91:1)

Shadows (Psalm 91:1)

From shadows of my own making
I have been led
It’s weight had been lifted from my heart
Now I am free to rise
A cloak of gloom lifted from my soul
A light rests upon it forevermore
My shelter now is with the Almighty
Under the shadow of His wings I lie
The love of His heart beats within mine
As I rest here within His peace

Psalm 91:1

Psalm 91:1

The Shelter (Psalm 17:7-9)

The Shelter (Psalm 17:7-9)

Are we overtaken
By the foes that chase our souls
From the shadows we will flee
To the safety beneath Your wings

There we find our refuge
A shelter from our enemy
We who are the beloved
Find our peace close to Your heart

Here the enemy cannot find us
Our soul they will never take
Now we rest so peaceful
Within the wonders of Your great love

Psalm 17:7-9

Psalm 17:7-9

In Your Peace

In Your Peace (Psalm 4:8)

From the centre of the storm
You welcomed me to Your shelter
When chaos reigned
In the light of Your face
It faded from view
From heaven Your peace flowed
And settled over me
In the face of it all
I slept in Your peace
In the house of Your love
Where I rest in Your safety

(Part 2 of 7)

Psalm 4:8

Psalm 4:8

Into The Storm

INTO THE STORM

Can I stay a while
In the shadow of Your Wings
Please let me rest a while
Before I face the tempest

Can I take Your hand
As I walk towards this storm
Please hold on tight
I can’t do this on my own

Can I seek Your refuge
If this all get’s to much
Please be my shelter in my need
When I’m weary from the fight

Can I sing Your praise
When I conquer this chaos
Please be my fortress and deliverer
For You are my Rock and my salvation

Missing Words

It seems so long ago since I wrote a piece of poetry, indeed it was way back on 17th November that I wrote Shelter, which was the day before I was prescribed anti-depressants by my Doctor.

Shelter was the last of three poems that I wrote within the space of two days, well I say days all three were written in the early hours, when I was unable to sleep, Mountains was posted at 1:38am and I Call Upon Your Name at 5:35am, both on 16th, then Shelter was the last posted at 1:32am on the 17th.

It may just be coincidence that my poetic side dried up when I went onto anti-depressants, but there has been a lack of artistic output since then.

I’ve had a few words go through mind, but nothing I’ve had the urge to write down and work with.

For a few weeks though, I’ve wanted to write an update to Mountains, a sequel of sorts, but I just haven’t got round to it, I know what I want to write I just don’t have the words, I can’t find them!

Then the other day something weird happened on my laptop, my screen saver scrolls through images with my favourite Bible verses, after I wrote Mountains I put the words on to a mountain image and added it to the gallery. But since Christmas Day, the words have disappeared from the image, just the mountains are were left, my words just vanished.

Tonight I’ve managed to get the words back on the image, so maybe I’ll find the rest of my words too.

Mountains

Maybe a good walk in the morning may bring back my poetic side, hopefully!

DID YOU FEEL THE MOUNTAINS TREMBLE? by JESUS CULTURE & MARTIN SMITH
Open up the doors and let the music play
Let the streets resound with singing
Songs that bring Your hope and
Songs that bring Your joy
Dancers who dance upon injustice

Did you feel the mountains tremble?
Did you hear the oceans roar?
When the people rose to sing of
Jesus Christ the risen One

Did you feel the people tremble?
Did you hear the singers roar?
When the lost began to sing of
Jesus Christ the saving One

And we can see that God You’re moving
A mighty river through the nations
And young and old will turn to Jesus
Fling wide You Heavenly gates
Prepare the way of the risen Lord

Open up the doors and let the music play
Let the streets resound with singing
Songs that bring Your hope
Songs that bring Your joy
Dancers who dance upon injustice

Did you feel the darkness tremble?
When all the saints join in one song
And all the streams flow as one river
To wash away our brokeness

And here we see that God You’re moving
A time of Jubilee is coming
When young and old return to Jesus
Fling wide You Heavenly gates
Prepare the way of the risen Lord

Open up the doors and let the music play
Let the streets resound with singing
Songs that bring Your hope
Songs that bring Your joy
Dancers who dance upon injustice

We’re gonna dance in the river, yeah

Shelter

Shelter

Hold me safe within Your hands
Shelter me from this storm
I’m battered by the wind & rain
I’m shaken down to the core
My soul it shivers with my fear
I cry out I can’t face this anymore

In the bright of day the darkness comes
The shadows cover a hopeful heart
In the mists despising who I become
Echoes from the past fill my cell
In the emptiness flow the tears
From the distance comes the pain

I look for You, I know You’re there
I hear You, You sing my name
Beyond the shadows holds Your light
With stinging eyes I’ll fix my gaze
With weary limbs I’ll walk to You
In Your love I place my hope

So, hold me safe within Your hands
Shelter me from this storm
