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

Within

“What lies behind us and what lies before us are tiny matters compared to what lies within us.” – Ralph Waldo Emerson

Sadness, sorrow, disbelief, anger…mostly sadness, for all those innocent people hurt, killed and traumatized by the Boston Marathon attack.  What kind of person or group of people is capable of such a senseless act?  A person with no love or compassion in their heart.  A person who can’t think beyond him or herself and their own personal agenda.  We need to take a hard look within our hearts, find what is in there, and go after the love.  And love is only found in God.

“Dear friends, let us love one another, for love comes from God.  Everyone who loves has been born of God and knows God.  Whoever does not love does not know God, because God is love.  This is how God showed his love among us:  He sent his one and only Son into the world that we might live through him.  This is love:  not that we loved God, but that he loved us and sent his Son as an atoning sacrifice for our sins.  Since God so loved us, we also ought to love one another.”  – 1 John 4:7-11

Find and hold onto God with all your heart, soul and mind.  Because He is love.  He is hope.  And He has the answers, although we might not understand until we’re with Him one day.  Love and blessings, Lisa

The CT tragedy has shaken everyone, and so deeply that it is impossible to write about it.  The why’s are unanswerable.  All I know is very little, but it is what I’m holding.

“Then I saw a new heaven and a new earth, for the first heaven and the first earth had passed away….And I heard a loud voice from the throne, saying, ‘Now the dwelling of God is with men, and he will live with them and be their God.  He will wipe every tear from their eyes.  There will be no more death or mourning or crying or pain, for the old order of things has passed away.’ ”  (Revelation 21:1, 3-4)

heavenHold tightly onto His truth and be as loving as you can to those around you.  Because we all need love.   Love, Lisa
