Push-through

The most gentle whisper
I hear knocking
On my heart’s door
Daddy is it You?

Sometimes I’m not sure
Sometimes I think
It’s my imagination
Is it really You?

Daddy it’s just
You’re so soft
You speak so gently
I’m not always sure

Daddy please come
Please teach my heart
To wait, to listen, to receive
More

So often Daddy
You speak to us
So often we miss You
Because we do not listen

Daddy please teach us
Please teach me
To hear Your whispers
To incline my ear

Yes Daddy
Yes
I wanna hear You speak
Much more frequently

Many things Daddy
We so often have in our hearts
Things and idols
Calling our attention away from You

Daddy we so wanna hear Your heart
Sometimes life just get busy
And things just keep on
Getting in between

Daddy it’s so not easy
Setting You as our greatest priority
It has become
Such a necessity

Daddy please
Please teach my heart
To wait
Much more frequently

I know Daddy
I know
Sometimes it is such a battle
Getting to You

You long Daddy-God
You long for us
To come sit on Your lap
To speak to us

It doesn’t happen
Frequently enough for You
I know Daddy
Sometimes it is just so tough

Daddy coming to rest in Your arms
Surrendering our fears and cares
At Your feet
It doesn’t happen often enough

Daddy it is tough
Speaking to our hearts sometimes
I know
I can see

Daddy it’s because
There is always so much to do
The world Abba
She truly keeps us so busy

It’s something
She tells us so often
Perform
Don’t wait on Daddy-God

I wish Abba
I wish we could truly see
I wish we could truly find
The beauty of coming to sit at Your feet

Resting in Jesus
How gentle
How kind
You always are

Papa-God
Please
Please tell our hearts to not fear
But to always, always look at You

Many things Papa
Lure us away
Many things try to steal away
The attention of our hearts that should belong to You

Many times Daddy
They succeed
Many times
We allow them to get in the way

Papa it is just
We need to be made aware
Some of us are so asleep
We don’t even bother anymore to really care

Yes Daddy
We have come to places
We have allowed Satan
To steal

o Daddy it’s not easy
And sometimes we see
We see the faults and mistakes
Of putting something else above and beyond You

o Daddy
o Daddy
Please forgive our hearts
Please set our spirits ablaze

With new passion Daddy-God
With a forever fiery pursuit of You
Set me ablaze Daddy-God
As the song says

Our hearts long Daddy-God
So so often
Yet we cannot see
For the flesh remains weak

Daddy please
Please make our hearts strong
Please give me one passion
That is to know You more

I need it Daddy
So much
I want it
So much

Please come Daddy
Please come and teach my heart
To wait on You
More fervently

o Daddy
You are kind
You are good
But You need us to come

We can’t allow
Our spirits to grow cold
No Daddy we need to be on fire
All the time

Please Papa
Please help us to remain strong
In You
In who You always are

Daddy it’s not easy
But it’s worth it
Please help me Daddy
To always keep my front row seat when it comes to You

Yes Abba, yes
I do not want to move to the back
I do not want to switch seats
I want to stay so close to You Abba

Please help me Daddy
Please
To keep on getting to know You
To never ever give up doing that

You want us Daddy
You need us
To keep on pursuing You
And Your beautiful heart

Please Abba
Please help us
To not get entangled in the wrong in this world
And the lies they so easily tell

o No Daddy
Please
Please please please help me
To never give up on You

You are worthy Daddy-God
So so worthy
Of all the effort needed
To stay close to You

Sometimes Daddy
It is an uphill battle
Sometimes, so often
It is not all-the-way-easy

Daddy it’s like the battle
Of the lady with the blood flow issue in the Bible
That You tell us about
She really had to push through

Daddy it was not at all easy for her
But she knew, she knew
Is she could only get to Jesus
She would be so okay

O Daddy teach us
Please
Give us such hearts, give me such a heart
A heart that will push through

A heart that will push through
Daddy all obstacles
Coming in my way
Obstructing my view

No Daddy, no
I cannot afford to look upon You and Your Kingdom
From a distance
I need to be close by

Daddy please
Please give me such a heart
A heart that will grow closer to Yours
Every day

You are so worth
All the trouble
We often have to go through
To stay close to You

Yes Daddy, yes
You know
The early mornings waking up to spend time with You
The times we feel can we not much rather sleep in

Daddy You know
You know of all the temptations
All the frustrations
Sometimes coming our way

I know something Abba
And that is that You are always good
Even though life gets dark and tough sometimes
You remain so good and faithful

Daddy thank you
Thank you so much
Even though I don’t get it right all the time
I want to stay on course

Yes Daddy, yes
I want to stay close to You
I want to stay close to Your heart
I need to

Daddy so
Just as the bystanders could not understand
Why the lady with the blood flow problem pushed through
I wanna do the same

Yes Daddy, yes
I cannot allow Satan or situations
To come in between me and my Lord
I have to be strict in that regard

No I’d much rather say
Come what may
I need to
Come what may I should

Yes says Abba-God’s child
I will push through
I must
I must get to the riches prepared for us

Brother, sister in Christ
Dearest friend
Will you join me
Will you come along?

Yes says Daddy-God
Yes
It is so
My dearest children you need to be strong

Sometimes says Daddy
It’s not easy to come
To wait
To spend time with Me

I know says Daddy-God
I can see so often
You want to
You just don’t get around to doing it

Sometimes says Abba
I need you to give up
Other things not so important
To be with Me

Yes children, yes
I know it’s an uphill battle sometimes
But let Me show you
How and where

Yes children, yes
Even in the busiest of days
You can still
Have time with Me

It’s so important dearest children
To fight Daddy says
To fight
For times with Me

o I know children
I know Daddy says
Sometimes you wish
Could it not just be a bit easier?

o Yes children
I know, I know Daddy says
You sometimes long
For just a bit of quiet and tranquillity

Your hearts long for it
Daddy says
I know
Son, daughter I can see

I’ve made you
Dearest children
With the desire
To just sometimes break free

Yes so that you can be
Refreshed and renewed
With a new song
With new strength

o Yes children, o yes
I know
You sometimes wish for a visit to an island or paradise
Where you could just lie and be

o Children
Daddy says
I want you to come rest on the island
Called Me

Yes dearest children
Yes
I am the best place of retreat
You could ever need

There are so much refreshment
Found in Me says Abba
So much refreshment
o Child come and see

From fountains of living water
To the Spring of Life
o Child come drink of it’s water
Come be restored

This is the opportunity children
I give you every day
I give you the opportunity
To come sit and be with Me

Daughter, son of My heart
The most beautiful places
We can visit together
Heavenly Places

I gave Daddy says
Earthly rest places
So you could see and understand
That is what I so want to be for you

Yes dearest children
Yes
I know all about reclining
I know all about getting up and facing life again

I know says Abba
I know
It sometimes becomes a cliché
Only nice words that you hear

I so wish Abba says
You could get to that point
Where you truly experience
I am Heaven and Paradise is Me

Yes dearest children
Yes
This is truly much more
Than only words that I say

I long for your heart and strength
To be renewed
For you to be refreshed
For you to truly find rest in Me

That is a place child
Where you can come be
Yes child, yes
It is so

I long for your weary hearts
To find
To come find
Rest in Me

Daughter, son
Will you please come see
I have a heart so beautiful
I would love for you to find

The hope in My heart
Is endless
Dear children
Endless

Come find
Come be restored
By the hope and faith
Found in My heart

Dearest children
Says Abba
That is what time with Me does
It restores so much

Come to Me weary hearts
Come to Me burdened hearts
I will give you rest
This My Word says

Come children, come please
Come see
Time with Me
It is so necessary

You can’t go without it children
I know you sometimes think you can
But you cannot
You need Me

Keep on
Spending time with Me
And o child you will see
I am the Refresher of Life

Amen.

Days of little answers

I don’t know
But Daddy knows
What a comfort that is
To my aching soul

Daddy my heart is
So sore
So sore of what this world teaches us
So sore of what we ourselves have done

Daddy my heart is so sore
Raw on the inside
Daddy look, look at what I have done
How come You will not give up on me?

I feel just so lost
So broken
In the temptations I fall into
How come, why come, what have I done?

Daddy I do not
I do not have answers
To the brokenness inside
Still Daddy, still You show me there is more

More layers of brokenness
Inside of my heart
More layers of brokenness
You want to heal

Daddy I don’t, I don’t know
I have so few
So little answers
When days like this knock on my life’s door

o Daddy
Why
Why do we seek for things this world gives
Why do we fall into waters of despair

Daddy I know not
Why we have so much wickedness inside
Still Daddy I find
You still love me

How beautiful and special and dear
This is to me
But Daddy what to do
When my heart doesn’t wanna believe in myself once more

Daddy I feel trapped
I feel so trapped in this body sometimes
A heart and a body that doesn’t honor You
It doesn’t know how

Daddy why
Why, why, why
The questions run all through my mind
Why this, why that

Daddy I have come to a place
Such a deep place
Daddy it says I don’t want to
But I need You to get me there

Daddy a place of brokenness
A place of see-through-ness
Daddy You see all
Even the things I don’t

Daddy I can’t hide anything from You no more
I don’t know how to do it
The only thing I can do is say
Daddy here I am, take me

Take me deeper Daddy please
Show me how can this wickedness inside of me
Forever die
Daddy I so do not want it to be there

Daddy
It has stolen so much from me
In the past I can see
Even now it is trying to resurrect

Daddy I do not know how
But You do
I wanna find comfort in that
Today and every day

Fault-finding we can do
Still it is not something I find in Your heart
You stay so soft, so humble
With those who feel lost and broken on the inside

Daddy I do not know
Why You have brought me here
I do not see yet Daddy
The dark night that You will turn into a sunny day

I do not see or find yet
The goodness that You are able to bring from this
Daddy it is just sore
Staring this in the face

I feel so alone sometimes
In this battle that I fight
Sometimes I don’t even feel strong
Just as if I’m getting it wrong all-the-time

Daddy this battle that I face
Thank you for fighting it with me
Thank you that I can still feel Your closeness
Thank you Daddy that You will never leave

I just trust you Daddy
I come and bring all of this
I choose to leave it in Your strong beautiful hands
Because without You I cannot

Daddy thank you
Thank you for never failing me
That you that You always care
Thank you for being steadfast

Daddy I bring them all to You
My failures, my faults
My weaknesses, my mishaps
Daddy I cannot do it without You

How You can still choose me
How You can still care for me
Daddy I do not know
I just say thank you

Thank you Daddy
For bringing gold out of this fiery trail
Thank you Daddy
That You can turn it for true good

Daddy I just wanna say
I trust You
I trust You
And I choose to hold on

Daddy I will choose
To keep on surrendering to You
To know You in all
To trust You with my whole being

You are the One who I belong to
You still have a plan for my life
You did not bring me this far
To just leave me now

Daddy I long for you
In a deeper way
I know this will perhaps get me there
That is why I choose to trust You

Yes trust is a choice
And today I give it to You
Daddy thank you just for being here
Thank you for always being near

I know Daddy that this giant
I do not have to face alone
I run to You
I say You are my strong and mighty God

Thank you Daddy
For already giving me the victory
In Your Son
We have won!

Yes Daddy, yes
Sin and shame has lost its power
On the Cross of Calvary
That is why today I can stand free and uncondemned

Thank you Daddy-God
Thank you for always
Giving us the victory
By and through the blood of Your Son

Daddy we trust You
We trust You
We come to You now
With even deeper faith

We love you Daddy
And we say thank you
All we truly need is in You
And You are worthy

Love songs
Our hearts want to continue to sing
For truly there is no-one like You
No one like You

We trust Your beautiful heart for us
Daddy we say thank you
Thank you that in every storm You are with us
You keep Your eyes on us, with You we are forever safe

Thank you Daddy
For being in the middle of this storm with me
For being my Rock
For being my Anchor

Daddy without You I cannot
With You I can
And for that I say
Truly thank you

You do not always remove
The very high mountains before us
You show us a way through
That will leave us so much stronger in You

Daddy for that
I say thank you
Thank you, thank you
I cannot do life without You

I just give You all Daddy
All, all, all
My love and praise
The One to which all honor is due

Thank you Daddy, thank you
For all You say
For all You do
For stirring faith inside my heart

With You we can do it
Always
Always, always
Always

You fill our hearts
With new strength
You give us hope for the future
Your plan for us is good

Amen.

The best of Me

How can this world and all its pleasures
Ever compare with Me?
It is because you do not know Me
You’ve only heard about the one called Me

If you would take time
If you would only turn to Me
You would realise there is so much more
To what you currently call life

Waking up in the wee hours of the night
Not knowing with who or where you’ve been
Calling up friends for a drunken spin
Truly My child you have not seen the best of Me

I want only the best for you
Still the choice is only yours
I understand you’ve never walked this road
Surely My child it is about time to make a change

Come to Me
I’ll show you the real Me
Never again you will hear stories of Me
The real Me you’ll know, forever you will be free

Amen.
