Exude Joy, Eschew Anger (by Fenny West)

Exude Joy, Eschew Anger

Exude Joy, Eschew Anger
Joy lifts, anger destroys.
Embrace joy unspeakable
Dispel anger and its danger.

Draw from the well of joy-
The joy of the Spirit within
Let His presence exude joy
And ward off wrath and its wiles.

Sing for joy, sing praises
Give thanks with a dance.
Name your blessings one by one
And give glory and honour.

 

for the joy of the LORD is your strength.” Neh8:10

Now the Day is Far Spent ( by Fenny West)

Now the Day Is Far Spent

Now the day is far spent, Lord 
Night is creeping upon us. 
Soon we’ll see the Day of the Lord, 
Coming, rushing upon us. 
O that we would see the rainbow 
On the cloud, a sign to us. 
Faithful God, who keeps His promise 
Coming even as He said. 

May we work while it is day, Lord
In the night no man can work. 
Always doing what You say, Lord. 
Standing always on the Rock. 
O That we would see the good field. 
Vast and plenteous with harvest. 
That we would join hand to hand, 
Reaping precious souls for God. 

Now we’ll raise the banner of praise, 
For You Lord, Who’s the Most High 
Regardless of what the world says 
With our eyes, we kiss Your eyes. 
We bow down, O Holy Spirit. 
Work in us  to work through us.
Rekindle the holy fire. 
Here we come, Lord, here we come.

The Parallel and Paradox … ( by Fenny West)

The Parallel and Paradox of the Wooden Art

https://youtu.be/F7qXKab5S5g

How incredible insightful and instructive!

The Wood artist sees what we do not see
And painstakingly uses his tool to chip off, cut out, carve out, garnish until the beautiful masterpiece emerges out of the wood to our amazement, admiration and wonder.
This is exactly what God sees in you and I. We may look useless on the outside but there is masterpiece waiting to find expression in us.
And as we yield to the Holy Spirit and the Word of God does His miracle of transformation by chipping off, carving out, garnishing, polishing until the masterpiece which was there, emerges for all to see, admire and glorify God for.
Today, yield to the Holy Spirit to work in you as to work through you. See yourself as a masterpiece awaiting manifestation. Yes, often the pruning can be painful, but see the joy ahead, like Jesus and submit yourself to the Master Crafts-Man Who knows your end from the beginning.

: For the earnest expectation of the creature waiteth for the manifestation of the sons of the sons of God.  Ro8:19
For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus unto good works, which God hath before ordained that we should walk in them. Eph2:10
John15:1} I am the true vine, and my Father is the husbandman. {15:2} Every branch in me that beareth not fruit he taketh away: and every [branch] that beareth fruit, he purgeth it, that it may bring forth more fruit. {15:3} John15:1-3

1John{3:1} Behold, what manner of love the Father hath bestowed upon us, that we should be called the sons of God: therefore the world knoweth us not, because it knew him not. {3:2} Beloved, now are we the sons of God, and it doth not yet appear what we shall be: but we know that, when he shall appear, we shall be like him; for we shall see him as he is.

How Loving and Caring (by Fenny West)

How Loving, How Caring! 

“I heard Him say, “Go there and speak” 
But I ran away, boarded a ship
Like the Titanic, I was bold.
I was wise in my way, in my eyes. 
Unbeknown to me, I leaked and was weak. 
I had betrayed myself, my soul sold. 

And down I went, drowning 
to a point of no return. 
Then I remembered my fault 
And cried out to Him. 
In the depths I raised a hymn of praise, 
I worshipped my Maker for His mercy, 
His wisdom, power, sovereignty. 
Like Paul and Silas, I was not silenced, 
Even in the rain, pain and grave. 

He was moved, quickly forgave
Commanded an earthquake 
To wash me ashore. 
And there I was, 
Even with a pillow 
Under my head. 
How loving, how caring!

Let Him grow More ( by Fenny West)

Let Him

grow more

As you grow less

When you confess.

Let Him increase

Fill to the brim

As you decrease

Brimming with Him.

Bow down to Him

In all your dreams

Yield for a yield

Vast in the field.

 

Proverbs 15

33 The fear of the LORD is the instruction of wisdom, And before honor is humility.

roverbs 18

12 Before destruction the heart of a man is haughty, And before honor is humility.

Proverbs 22

4 By humility and the fear of the LORD Are riches and honor and life.

Today, There is Melody   
there is melody in my heart, today
(For my God)

What looked so impossible
The Lord made it possible.
(Today, today, there is melody in my heart, today.)

That which was a big trial
Has become a big triumph.
(Today, there is melody in my hear, today.)

He’s turned my opposition,
Into a big promotion.

That which was a big barrier,
Has become a big blessing.

With joy He has filled my heart
So I will praise Him from my heart.

Into my life He brought Praise
So today His praise I raise.

O give thanks unto the Lord
For His mercies forever endures.

He’s a faithful God,
Powerful God,
Merciful God,
I will trust Him.

 O give thanks to the Lord

We are not counted among the dead

He still gives us our daily bread

He guides us to His desired haven

He has promised us heaven

 

O give thanks to the Lord

He healed us of all our diseases

Made a way for us the crises

Shielded us from the scourge of the tongue

And turns for our good every wrong.

O give thanks to the Lord

Who forgives us all our sins

And lifts us from diabolical bins

Who crowns us with love

As those born from above

 

O give thanks to the Lord

Who made us His righteousness

Cleansing us from all unrighteousness

Granting us His loving-kindness

Covering all our nakedness

 

O give thanks to the Lord

Who ended our blindness

Helps us in all our weakness

Who leads us to green pastures

And holds in His hands our futures

 

O give thanks to the Lord

Who grants us compassion

And gives us protection

Who renews our youth like the eagle’s

Enables us to leap over hurdles.

 

O give thanks to the Lord

Who makes our crooked paths straight

And makes Himself our strength

Giving us a higher playing field

And becoming our Bulwark and Shield.
