Flowers in bloom of every kind
Somehow this brings to mind
God’s infinite creativity
No one’s like you, no one’s like me.
And God wants every single one
To help get His glorious work done
So let’s not compete or compare,
Let’s just get the job done, do our share.
What a privilege it is
To do His work, to be His.

“ It does not matter how great the pressure is. What really matters is where the pressure lies – whether it comes between you and God, or whether it presses you nearer His heart.”
-- Hudson Taylor.

“ Man needs, above all else, salvation. He needs to turn around and see that God is standing there with a rope ready to throw to him if only he will catch it and attach it to himself.”

Words
Sometimes we don’t realize just how important our words are.
Words can lift us up, fill us with the courage we need to go far.
They can give us hope, encourage our faith, help us on our way,
We need Your heavenly guidance in everything we say.
But Lord, there I go, again, not letting love guide my tongue
I spoke in haste, before I prayed, and let harmful words be flung
To someone who needed kindness and the anointing of Your love
The hope of trust and understanding, of contact with God above.
So please forgive my carelessness in the words that I speak,
And fill me with Your wisdom; that is what I seek.
Please help me to apologize for words too hastily spoken
That don’t reflect Your loving heart, that can leave hearts broken,
And thank You for Your forgiveness, and love and grace so free,
That You extend to all Your children and give so willingly
