Wisps of Truth By Brenda Drake

The Holy Spirit starts His holy work long before we know or even desire to know God.  In times of quiet, and in times of trial we are touched with fascinating strands of truth. The salvation story enters into the hungry seeking heart.  I now have a great hunger for the Word.  God feeds me often all the wisdom I desire, and encourages me to even hunger for more!

Wisps of Truth

Wisps of truth, like delicate strands of gold
Deposited in the secret place the heart holds
Interwoven threads of goodness pure and undefiled
Bits of God’s wisdom that causes the heart to smile
Wondrous revelations that reveal God’s power and might
That floods the inner sanctuary with eternal lights
A supernatural breath of air that lifts up the heart to receive
That, that their faith believes
The truth of God’s love has a sweet taste
As God introduces the wonder of His grace
The captive is freed, like an eagle soars to great height
As God’s forgiveness fills the soul with unearthly delights
Great desire fills this place with the need to give praise
At the truth of unworthiness, the heart bows amazed
Beautifully adorned in worship as a living sacrifice
Filled and overflowing, one with Jesus Christ
A marvelous union so intricately designed
One with the Truth – perfectly aligned
Seek God and you will find peace
Seek His ability for He is your strength
Hunger for righteousness – He is the bread
Thirst for His wisdom, He is the head
Rest in His goodness, entrust your life to His care
He is the fullness you seek, He is always willing to share
Every trial you face, know He guides your step
Every battle formed against you He is prepared for it
Read God’s Word each and every day
And the delicate strands of His truth will show you His way

John 8:32
And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free

Tremendous Truth Emerges By Brenda Drake

What is truth?  Is the world’s truth at odds with what you have always thought true? Where does our help come from?  Who is Truth?  Jesus is Truth, Life and the Way.  We are wise when we watch to see Truth reign in our life and in our surroundings.  Look up and embrace the truth.  He has the final word for He is also The Word of God.

Tremendous Truth Emerges

The God of truth stands tall, His love pours down.
Your faith rises up and again truth is found.
The wise of the world makes their plans,
And with power-hungry vision makes demands.
The truly wise watch for God’s plan to unfold,
With humble heart its value is untold.
Terrible times are faced with God’s strength within,
The wise place all their trust in Him.
When the truth is camouflaged and is unclear,
The wise turns to God’s wisdom hear.
When the air is filled with hateful sounds,
The wise finds the way to higher ground.
There in air is filled with love, peace and joy too.
For in God the wise breathe and move.
The world is ready to pick a fight,
Choosing the way wrong instead of right.
But there is One that will surely win.
All praise and honor belongs to Him.
Tremendous truth emerges, love, hope, and faith rise up strong.
God again turns the table to what belongs.

2 Timothy 2:15
Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.  But shun profane and vain babblings: for they will increase unto more ungodliness

John 14:6
Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.

Faith sees Beauty where Ashes are Still by Brenda Drake

We are surrounded on every side with the troubling circumstances of the day.  It is wise to be informed but with the conflicting information swirling about; less is more.   When our hearts are overwhelmed and worry fills our day; it is past time to get into the World of God to allow God’s wisdom and assurance to restore our ability to see with eyes of faith instead of fear. It is such a joy when an almost impossible situation has lost it power over us.  The circumstances perhaps remain the same but the atmosphere has changed. Faith has filled our eyes with the promises in God’s Word.  For… we remember that nothing is impossible to our God!

Faith Sees Beauty where Ashes are still

Faith filled eyes choose to see,
Exactly what God’s Word says will be.
Circumstances are not held in thought for long;
For the pull of the Word of God within is too strong.
Minds are trained to turn away from lie and fraud,
And to place in high honor the Word of God.
Faith filled eyes see beauty where ashes are still;
For they know that the Word for them is fulfilled.
Faith filled eyes see the answer that will come,
Almost before their prayer requests are done.
Yes the one with faith filled eyes may dance and will sing,
As they agree with God’s Word praise is brought to Jesus their King.

Mark 9:23
Jesus said unto him, If thou canst believe, all things are possible to him that believeth.

Isaiah 61:3
To appoint unto them that mourn in Zion,
to give unto them beauty for ashes, the oil of joy for mourning,
the garment of praise for the spirit of heaviness;
that they might be called trees of righteousness,
the planting of the Lord, that he might be glorified.
