my favourite things/broken glass

                                                                                          ~ broken glass art by Bing Wright

broken mirrors
they seem no use to us
but when held up to the light
show a world of Kaleidescope beauty
like a stained glass by a Master's touch
we stand in awe and catch our breath

broken lives
they seem no use to us
but when held up to the Light
The Master's touch
shows what is really there
and piece by piece reflects
a glimmer never thought
by human heart
could ever be restored

it is the Master's touch
that takes a broken piece
of glass or human heart
and gently bends His Light around
and a Master Piece
is born

He bends His knee to heal us
He comes in gracious mercy
to take us in His arms and hold us
He comes by His gracious Spirit to woo us
and what seems no use to broken man
to God is how His heart
is born in us

broken mirrors
broken lives
His love that holds us

my favourite things

my favourite things/ God's grace is always kind

This was an end of the year posting that ended up 'not here' but grace must always be shared~ His grace is always sufficient~ peace to all my beloveds~ so precious to Him you are, and to me.

God’s grace is always kind
it is life that is hard
and though so often joyous
life has a way of pulling the carpet right out from under us
at times
we just don’t understand God
God’s grace is always kind
in that hard spot
when life seems to just swallow us
and we would shout out at Him
and say Why God
Why me God
Why all this pain
or all this joy
or all this sorrow
God’s grace is always kind
and comes to us
and puts its arms around us
holds us up
binds up our woundedness
waits with us
for healing
or gives us better
God’s grace is always kind
don’t ever think there is not enough
don’t ever think you are not worthy
that He is blind and does not see
or understand
your depths
of agony
God’s grace is always kind
its purpose is life
and that abundantly
in our hearts
in our minds
in our whole beings
not just for now
but for Always
this grace
has tasted life’s agonies
and joys
its victories
and triumphs
it is God’s grace that holds us
when all is lost
when we are found
Be still and let it hold you
rest in its embrace
you are His Beloved
let His Grace show you
the kindness of God
beloved let us love one another
for love is of God
and he that loveth not
knoweth not God
~I John 4:7,8
Greater love hath not man than this
that he lay down his life for his friends
~John 15:13
Love is patient,
love is kind
and is not jealous;
love does not brag
and is not arrogant,
does not act unbecomingly;
it does not seek its own,
is not provoked,
does not take into account a wrong suffered,
does not rejoice in unrighteousness,
but rejoices with the truth;
bears all things,
believes all things,
hopes all things,
endures all things.
Love never fails…
~But now abide these three; faith, hope, love,
but the greatest of these is love.
1 Corinthians 13:4-7,13
For I am persuaded, that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come,
Nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.~Romans 8:38-39
God’s grace is always kind
