The Host in White

Heaven’s fire is burning in me

just like it burns in the Holy City.

God’s Spirit burns brightly in the midst of His Host;

Blessed Father, Son, and Sweet Holy Ghost.

I will be there to see them burn brightly

because His word I’ll never take lightly,

and He has promised we’ll see His Face

when we’ve allowed Him to run our race.

Yes, Heaven’s fire is burning in me;

where I’ll serve my Master, eternally,

and never grow used to or tired to see

the “Host in White”, which includes me!

From every nation they’ll gather there

forever rejoicing, all freed from care.

God will coronate His Holy Lamb

and crown Him ever, “The Great I Am”

and I will be there, yes, I will see

the Redeemed shouting and I will be

standing right in the midst of them;

shining and shimmering just like gems!

Let God’s fire burn in all of His might

and my heart rejoice with His Host in White!

HALLELUJAH! God’s fiery Host in White!


Thanks Be to God!

Father, Your Love to me is wonderful.
As flowers yield their depths to sunlight, I have opened my life to You.
You have welcomed me with grateful Arms;
I am loved, nurtured, and bathed in springtime rain.
While shielded from the sting of winter’s harsh and bitter grasp,
Your kindness nestles me in the comfort of Your womb.
All I have, and all I know, is LOVE for You.
You are all things to me, dear Lord, and
for this, I truly thank You.

Father, Your Love for me is incomparable
and, as orchids link their fiery hues to summer’s buttery breezes,
I give my breath to You in song.
Your Strong Winds blend all utterances with Your Eternal Life.
I am Yours to direct in Your Good Pleasure.
All fragrances of Love and Life are Yours and precious to me.
You’ve pressed the flower of my life within Your Bosom’s pages;
eternally remembered by You.
Your harmonies go on in me in praises everlasting;
I’m bursting with Your Wind chimes!
In You I will rejoice!

The passion of my life is Your symphonic masterpiece.
For this and every phrase of JOY, My Father, I do thank You.

Father, All-Knowing

God knows the trials that, daily, we face
trying to mirror His love and His grace.

He treasures the littlest things that we do
and sends great reward in His timing to

encourage our gladness and strengthen our hearts
that though we don’t dare to share all our thoughts

He knows what they are and knows them right well;
His love never faults us for wanting to tell

the things that just make us ‘look good’ in His sight.
He knows of our struggles and sees through the night

upon all our hardships and stresses and faking;
He urges we strip off the frauds, undertaking

the knowledge of His unconditional love
so we can stand honest before Him with ‘tubs’

sitting upright and full of His patience and care
overflowing with honesty, willing to share

all the “uglies” with Him; all the good and the bad,
and the prideful events, and the thoughts that we’ve had.

God wants us to take all the time that we need
to be naked and truly confess every deed

so His love and forgiveness can take full effect
to repair and renew our dear hearts from shipwreck.

So that we can come boldly before His Great Throne
with love everlasting that our hearts have known

belongs to us solely from now ’til the end
purifying us holy like our greatest Friend.

He’s ally, He’s Faithful, He’s our Mighty Father
to His heart we’re precious and never a bother.

Encourage my heart, Sovereign God of all flesh!
You’ve saved me completely from all threat of death.

My life is Your canvas and Your tapestry
I’m rescued from ruin and, from sin, set free!

From God’s Heart to Yours

medium_8738180698.jpgYou are escorted wherever you go
the Hand of God, the redeeming flow
of His Mercy extended and outstretched arm
to keep you close by Him and shield you from harm.

You’re always guided by fountains of Love
which flow from His wellspring below and above
covering each place where He set His eyes
to lead you and guide you along in this life.

When Time is over and God says, “No More”,
He’ll lead you at last to His Heavenly shore
with beaches and soft sand and all that you like,
you’ll embrace and hug Him with all of your might.

He’ll declare it all worth it, and you will agree
as He gestures to pick from that All Living Tree
that will spring forth His Life like never before,
above you, within you, and oh, so much more!

“Take, eat and drink, enjoy all My Life!

be rested from burdens, be freed from all strife!
This was made ready the moment you prayed
and when faced with abandonment, instead you stayed.

Persevering in prayer and making each day
an altar of Thanks, showing others the Way
laid before them by My Son, Who Himself is Light;
we welcome you here now, where there is no night.”
