Seasons… Spring

Seasons… Spring

Let the darker nights begin to fall
As brighter mornings
Bring new life
Let the flowers break
The blankets of white snow
I long to hear the birds sing
At the coming of the dawn
Can this emptiness drift away
As the sun lights up the sky
Can this anguish be buried
Beneath the joy spring can bring
So I can grow
And rise from this shrivelled life
To new beginnings
To new moments
That can define who I’ll be
Lord be with me through the autumn
Lord stay with me through harsh winters
And be with me when I taste
The fresh of the spring
When all comes to life
And I can breathe again

Verse of the Day – Isaiah 55:10-11

Isaiah 55:10-11

Isaiah 55:10-11

From time to time we have to suffer the harsh winter, before we can walk into the new life that spring brings with it.

NEW LEASE ON LIFE by MERCYME
Oh Lord have mercy on this weary soul
Come and take me to the river and make me whole
It’s down with the old up with the new
The hard reset my life take two
Oh Lord have mercy on this weary soul

I’ve got a new lease on life
They say you only live once
But I live twice
I’ve got a new lease on life
I’ve got a new lease on life
Yeah…

Oh Lord remind me of who I am
My chains have been shattered I’m a brand new man
I’m free indeed, I’m dead no more
At my worst I’m still adored
Oh Lord remind me, this is who I am

I’ve got a new lease on life
They say you only live once
But I live twice
I’ve got a new lease on life
I’ve got a new lease on life
Yeah…

The enemy knows where I call my home, but he’s still trying
To mess up my life in the meantime, so Lord remind me

I’ve got a new lease on life
They say you only live once
But I live twice
I’ve got a new lease on life
I’ve got a new lease on life
Yeah…

Out Of The Winter

OUT OF THE WINTER

Are you feeling cold inside
A frozen heart
Slowly pumping
A cold poison
Through the icy veins
Of a shivering body
Lost in the winter
In cold and lonely isolation

Do you feel your life
Is like a drifting snowflake
Frozen in the season
Your unique
No other the same as you
Yet compelled to fall
In the darkest of night
To join the multitudes
Covering the land
That now all look the same

Is your life trapped in winter
A dark season
Cold and shivering
Stand my friend
Look for the light
To ignite the soul inside
You have to walk through the spring
To feel a fresh sun upon your heart
Let the ice melt and life invade your veins
In the new season life begins
Walk through the spring toward the summer
When the summer arrives
We reap the harvest of the faithful
For those who walk in grace

I know your scared
Holding on in your pain
Trust me I know
Trust me I felt it myself
Trust me there is a way out
I’ve walked from the winter
Through a spring into the summer
Reach for the hand my friend
Of the Son who came to save
Let His grace be your strength
His love be your light
That warms a frozen heart
And walk my friend
Into your new season

Spring Morning

Weekly Photo Challenge: Spring

So far here in the UK the spring hasn’t been that great, thankfully as we have reached the May Bank Holiday, the spring seems to have finally arrived, which made for a pleasant walk to work this morning.

FIVE CANDLES (YOU WERE THERE) by JARS OF CLAY
A promise or a dare 
I would jump if I knew you’d catch me 
Staring over the edge 
I can’t tell if you’ll be here for me 

I close my eyes and make a wish 
Turn out the lights and take a breath 
Pray that when the wick is burned 
You would say that it’s all about love 

You were there when I needed you 
You were there when the skies broke wide, wide open 
You were there when I needed you 
You were there when the skies broke wide, wide open 

You were never here 

I remember you said 
Love was more than your good intentions 
Empty boxes on the floor 
Things I never asked you for 
I pray that when the wick is burned 
You would say that it’s all about love 

You were there when I needed you 
You were there when the skies broke wide, wide open 
You were there when I needed you 
You were there when the skies broke wide, wide open 

I can’t see the promise of 
Excuses you fall upon 
I pray to God not holding on 
To things you’ve left undone 

You were there when I 
You were there when I 
You were there when I needed you
