Protected And Safe

See the source image

Darkness swirls through my waking dreams, fears and irrationalities

But the comforting pat from a mother’s hand in the night to calm me

Huge waves threaten to force me back to shore

But the strong arms of a father lifts me up and over them all, into the glory of the ocean

Fears of being alone and unloved rise up

But the constant embrace of love from a husband’s arms reminds me over again otherwise

Unknown futures and fears of illness and pain lurk

But The Father, the Holy of Holies, the Prince of Peace shelters, calms, saves, gives hope

Protected and Safe

Upheld Even If You Fall


“Though he fall, he shall not be utterly cast down; for the Lord upholds him with his hand.”

“But the salvation of the righteous is from the Lord; He is their strength in the time of trouble.”      ~Excerpts from Psalm 37

Watching the news is always an alarming thing these days.  Suffering, scary weather, scarier people, hurting people.  One passage of the Bible has been really ringing true for me lately…..Psalm 37.  I encourage you to read the whole thing when you have some time.  Praying for you, for me, for all of us to cling on to Jesus with all we have, because He is what will last in the end.  And the most excellent thing?  As much as we try to cling, He’s got us with his mighty hand and we can’t fall too far.  🙂  Blessings, Lisa

Throughout My Lifetime

“I will be your God throughout your lifetime….I made you, and I will care for you.” ~Isaiah 46:4 NLT

I can’t tell you how much comfort that verse has brought me this morning.  It makes me feel safe, loved, protected, cared for, held, warm.  And it makes me love Jesus so much, that He would care and love and hold.  I pray that your day is full of love and blessings.  Lisa

You’re With Me


“You’re With Me”

c 2012 Lisa Lyons

I don’t know what this road is; I don’t know where it leads…

I only know I’m safe when You’re with me.

I get so turned around; so many detours call me…

But I only know the way ’cause You’re with me.

And when I feel  far from You, I know You’re still there beside me

Holding my hand, leading me on and on…

My feelings change; my moods rearrange like the trees out in the wind

But I don’t fly alone ’cause You’re with me

I need to see that You’re living in me…You’re my only Constant

Remove this discontent…Breathe in me…

And when I feel far from You, I know You’re still there beside me

Holding my hand, leading me on and on…

He never leaves you or forsakes you.  He promised.  Blessings on your weekend, Lisa
