I like to paint pictures of the beauty God’s creation. But my heart truely desires to paint a picture in words that show the utter beauty of all Jesus has done and what lies ahead for His children.
Let My Words Paint a Picture by Brenda Drake
One day I will walk on streets of gold and will watch the angels fly;
And I will behold all the colors used to paint sky.
The Jewel of heaven will before me stand,
And as I bow down low He will reach for my hand.
There is no emotion held in check,
My heart fills with a joy I have not felt yet.
Every hope has been surpassed,
Every dream is fulfilled at last.
Until then my Lord like a child I wait to see,
All the wonderful gifts that the Word has promised me.
As I walk upon the rocky path of the earth I dwell,
As strange as it seems I walk also in heavens streets as well.
In tune with Holy Spirit perhaps I will recognize,
The wonderful gifts that are placed before my eyes.
Give me heart that sees the beauty in the place I am.
Help me recognize and find Your lost jewels in the land.
Give me Your loving touch Lord, as I reach out to them.
Let my words paint a picture of love that they can take within;
That administers a taste of the joy and the peace,
That lies ahead for Your redeemed.
I thank You Jesus for such a glorious future we can savor.
Thank You for such love and such abundant favor.
Delight thyself also in the LORD; and he shall give thee the desires of thine heart.
In the multitude of my thoughts within me thy comforts delight my soul
