How do I tell them You love them

I would just like to share a poem and a song that I wrote some time back.

LIFE IS A GIFT  (poem)

Life is a gift of precious time
a lease of years untold
do we realize this naked truth                             

as our given days unfold
and should we not be listening                     
each moment of the day
to the Voice that's crying out to us                       
to walk the narrow way
One life we have upon this earth
to live just as we choose
a span of precious moments of time
a time that we must use
We find ourselves within a space
there are others there as well
and why they're brought across our path
God alone can tell
We're everyone each loved by Him
every woman, child and man
and the only thing He'll ask of us
is to do the best we can
And the only thing remaining
as we stand before God's Son
will be God's book of remembrance
and the deeds that we have done


How do I tell them You love them
how can I show them You care
how can I tell them You died for them Lord
their sickness, their sins You did bear
How can I tell of salvation 
the path to the Father revealed
how can I say, if they call on Your name
the wounds from this world can be healed
Grant me the courage to tell them
anoint me with power from above
use me, my Lord, to go out in their midst
to tell them about Your great love
I want them to know about Jesus
the One with the power to save
the Holy One sent to release us from sin
the Son of God raised from the grave
I thank You, my Father, for Jesus
Who’s with You, sat at Your right hand
and I thank You, my Lord, that you answer my prayer
when I pray for the lost in this land

‘Wait on the Lord, and keep His way, and He shall exalt thee to inherit the land, when the wicked are cut off, thou shalt see it    Psalm 37 v.34

‘‘ For the Son of man is come to seek and to save that which was lost ‘   Luke ch.19 v10

Both are so beautiful sister! Glory be to God! I could sense your deep hunger to share the Good News through your poem and song. Stay strong in the Lord's mighty power. God bless and protect you.

Hi my sister in the Lord,
for all my time in the Lord sharing His love and grace have been the most important things in my life, and I know that the poems and songs that have been given to me by Him have been given to me to encourage others, as I know all He gives to all born again believers is. God bless you and protect you too.

God bless you, Brenda.

Brenda said...

Hi Victor, God bless you too.

Aritha said...

Thank you Brenda. Both are so mice.
Also glad with the bibleverses.

Brenda said...

Hi Aritha,
I have been over to your blog but have not read all of it or listened to the video, will do it now. I like your connection to One for Israel. I think I have already told you that my mother and both her parents were Jewish. Thank you for your kind comment.

Laurie Collett said...

Hi Brenda,
Lovely poem and song sharing Biblical truth. I was hearing a melody in my mind as I read the words to your song. Thank you for sharing your God-given gifts and may He bless you richly,

Brenda said...

Hi Laurie,
thank you for your kind comment. Everything that is lovely in my poem or song is the Lord Himself. His love for us is above all other love in the world. God bless you Laurie, as you too share the love of our Lord Jesus.

Victor S E Moubarak said...

Many thanx for visiting my blog.

God bless always.

Brenda said...

You are welcome Victor.

Beautiful poem and song and verses. Amen!! Life is a gift and it is wonderful when we can share about God`s goodness and saving grace to others!! Thank you for your visit to my blog. ♡ The LORD bless you and keep you and shine His face upon you and give you Peace!!

Brenda said...

Thankyou Shayndel, how can we not share the goodness of our Father God. He sent His Son to be sacrificed so that we could be reconciled back to Him. After having my near death experience and going to what I believe was the third heaven, the place the apostle Paul was taken to, nothing in this world can compare to it.

Sandi said...

Wait on the Lord... Amen.

"how can I say, if they call on Your name
the wounds from this world can be healed"

The wounds from this world can be healed. What a wonderful promise!

In response to your comment on my post "Putin on Biden," I did read about the speculation on his health. Did he ever confirm or deny it? I have not been keeping up with the news. I also have not posted any of the comments I received on that post, just to let you know. I didn't want it to be a big discussion, just wanted to say what I thought and leave it at that.

Laurie Collett said...

Hi Brenda,
Amen -- Our Lord Jesus Christ is pure beauty and truth. and anything that resembles that in anything we say or do must come from Him, for He is love and light. God bless you.

Brenda said...

Hi Sandi,
no I understand that, I don't really get into discussions about politics. I think I just added that little comment because my husband was reading his newspaper and mentioned that. That is why the comment was so small:-) Nice to know you are ok Sandi, in these times of the virus we have to keep ourselves safe. God bless and keep you safe.

Brenda said...

Hi Laurie, our lovely Lord is definitely love and light, beauty and truth, and without Him in our lives there would be no hope of a future of unimaginable blessing. God bless you and Richard.
