When all my thoughts seem to swirl with turbulence within my soul
And I cannot stand upon all I thought so true and dear,
It’s then I turn to My Beloved Jesus…
With all my cries for help~~
And all my flowing tears~~
With all my heart.

Jesus, You are My truth
You are My calm
You are My clarity in all
I throw myself at your
Nail-scarred feet.

Have mercy on me
Have compassion on me
Break through to the deep of the deeps of my being
And meet me there and soothe
My troubled soul.

In the secret place where your light shines brightly
On all my dark spots and varied questions,
You show me the straight path…always
You are so committed to being personally faithful

I embrace your love
And I know your heart
Is good and pure
And strong…
You incline yourself toward me.

The clear and plain path comes to me
And opens up to such Beauty~
Is it the answers to all my questions?
Is everything fixed up now, Jesus?
Will it ever seem to all “fit together”?

I perceive You have a higher calling for one such as I
Who is also acquainted with grief and sorrows and sadness.
You embrace all of me~all I’ve suffered~
All I’ve needed forgiveness for~
All the ravages and effects of my poor soul,
Which is precious in your sight.
You assure me that I am in the center of your vision
As You have lovingly worked in me through all.

And I am learning to draw closer
To come deeper~
And receive a richness in You that I yet long for
In our relationship.
To see your radiant beauty
Calling me to trust, yet more
I, too, am called to bring glory to my King!

You truly are in loving charge of every part of me,
That wondrous tapestry of life
With all it’s unexpected twists and turns,
It’s swirls and bumps and bruises and
Pain and fears and terror and …
You are not ashamed of your sufferings and
You are not ashamed of mine as well.

Yes, it is all mysterious
For if you weren’t a Mystery,
Then You would not be the Living God of the Universe!
I thank you again for everything and all
Which You have used and yet use to perform your own
Marvelous wonders of transformation…
That I may become yet another trophy of grace.

About Donna

Praise the Lord! By His Grace I am His child and His servant. I can do nothing of and by myself for the Living God is the Great Producer, Director and Potter and it is by His grace that anything has been accomplished within me. I have four children and five grandsons and one granddaughter whom I love dearly. I am seeking to be a prepared Bride and to be a seeker, lover, worshipper, of the Living God. I seek to inspire others to come to the Lord and seek Him for truth and to hear from Him for themselves so as to follow hard after Him and all He has for them. These writings are meant to draw you to the Lover of your souls, so you too, can be prepared to please and satisfy Jesus Christ who paid the ultimate price for our redemption. Thereby, you will then enjoy Him here, glorify Him and belong to His Heart and meet with Him someday in the Heavenly Kingdom. The way is narrow that leads to LIFE, but the way is broad that leads to DESTRUCTION. I implore you to seek the Lord, to examine yourselves, to plead for His mercy to make you ready to be a prepared bride for Him, as you are His inheritance and His reward for His sufferings. Bless the Lord!
