Precious Secret Place By Brenda Drake

The finest place is in the spot God has reserved just for you.  Only you fit there.  In this place only your love can be perfectly in tune with the lover of your soul.  I call it my precious secret place because it is my very own space to fulfill His purpose for me. 

Precious Secret Place

The secret place is precious beyond compare;
Completely private and holy but the way there is shared.
Precious, set apart and holy under God’s wings I hide,
In this space of safety I am at peace, full, and alive.
I am filled with confidence and alive to His touch,
With inner peace basking in His everlasting love.
In this place there are answers to every inner quest,
For in Jesus’ name is every prayer request.
He is the answer to every trouble or woe,
For He has provided and proves He is the lover of my soul.
Oh how my heart sings and longs to forever stay at His side,
I am His beloved. I am His bride.
My heart has been touched and fashioned to do His will,
I am consumed with His desire to heaven’s rooms fill.
So out into the world I travel to show again,
Others who search, in need of finding the way to Him.
Never do I stay out and away for long,
For I have found in the precious secret place I belong.

Psalms 91:1-2
He that dwelleth in the secret place of the most Highshall abide under the shadow of the Almighty.
I will say of the Lord, He is my refuge and my fortress: my God; in him will I trust.

Free to Fly By Brenda Drake

            One of the very first Psalms that spoke loud to me was Psalms 91.  I love the way it speaks to bring faith and comfort of my Fathers promised care and love.  This poem explains exactly how and why I love to cozy up with God in my secret place.

Free to Fly

Nesting under the wings of love secure and safe,
Born to flourish in a world tainted with sin and hate,
Soft thoughts calm heart, soul, and mind,
With a deep knowing you are with God aligned.
The winds and hard rains of life swirl around,
With loud, hurtful, threatening sounds.
But the voice you listen to speaks,
Songs of Salvation that instills sweet peace.
Under God’s wing you are nourished by the Word.
The more you eat the more growth occurs.
You are not always anxious to try your wings and fly,
For you are comfortably secure, safe and dry.
But there is something you need to see.
You are able to fly because I am inside of thee.
Never are you out of My shelter and out from My cover.
I am your world, your Savior, Father and soul lover.
You are free to fly as the Spirit gives you wing;
As you go know I give you a heart that sings.

Psalms 91:1-2
He that dwelleth in the secret place of the most High
shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty.
 I will say of the Lord, He is my refuge and my fortress:
my God; in him will I trust.

Isaiah 40:31
But they that wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength;
they shall mount up with wings as eagles;
they shall run, and not be weary;
and they shall walk, and not faint.
