Tender Thoughts By Brenda Drake

There is power in the words we speak.  I am convinced there is great power in our thoughts.  If we think on good things, we will speak good things.  Jesus is the Word of God, I think I will concentrate on Him!

Tender Thoughts

Tender thoughts are sweet to taste,
The words are as a soothing embrace.
Gentle, flowering sacrifices offered in prayer.
Love has shown its face to the God that cares.
The perfume of sacrifice fills the atmosphere.
Holy anointing proves God is near.
A sigh of peace in God’s comfort rests;
Heart and mind convinced to watch for God’s best.
The eyes search for any sign,
To discern to follow as God designs.
The face lifts for heaven’s kiss,
As the coal is placed on unholy lips.
Praise, worship, and wisdom will depart,
From lips of the one with yielded heart
Tender words, kind and full of respect,
Can a good harvest expect.
Practice makes perfect – with God’s help within,
Vessels are made as pure as God already sees them.
Follow the example of Jesus; He loved man so much,
He thought tender thoughts as on the cross He touched.

Jeremiah 31:3
The LORD hath appeared of old unto me, saying, Yea, I have loved thee with an everlasting love: therefore with lovingkindness have I drawn thee.
