A pretty facade

Compassion and Care
That is Me
You all find it so difficult to believe
I wonder why?

See what I came to give
My life
My blood
My tears

For you He says
For you to have life
For you to be free of sin
And everything the enemy would bring

My heart for you is freedom
Says the Lord
Why is it so hard to believe?
Let Me tell you what I find hard to believe

How do you call what you do freedom?
You’re trapped by things you MUST do every day
Because of need and not because of love He says
How do you call that life?

What you do breaks your heart and spirit
It damages your soul and kills you in the end
How does this weigh up
To the momental pleasures you experience here and there?

To keep on doing something
Just because you must
To fit in
To feel accepted

You’re only running from your pain
You’re adding to the hurt
There is so much more to life
To what you persist-to-say is fun

Search deeper
Search for more
Search for meaning
That is something you will only find in Me.


The joy of a child

If you have not played
If you have not laughed
If you have not had honest fun
With a child, playing in the sun

You have not lived He says
The pureness they carry
What joy do they bring
How broad do they make the heart smile

How I love them He says
How they are all birthed in My heart
I love them
I gave them for you to share in this love

I know obstacles have come
I know it is not always easy
Still dear child, thank you for sticking it out
Thank you for allowing them to be your part

I love you guys so much
Dear child please know that you are safe in My hands
Please will you listen to My voice
I will direct your path

Every step I will guide
Keep your eyes fixed on Me
Your joy will be full
Even though the world says you don’t have a chance
