Welcome to my Garden.

Today's poem was taken from today's "Jesus Calling"

DON'T BE RESENTFUL

Don't be resentful
When your plans go astray.
Don't be resentful
When things don't go your way.

Don't be resentful
I have a sovereign claim.
Don't be resentful
And on Me put the blame.

Don't be resentful
Of Me, be more aware
Don't be resentful
For I still care.

Don't be resentful
Of your pain or loss.
Don't be resentful
For you I paid a cost!

Welcome to my Garden.
This is my friend Elizabeth Wakeham and me. She was young at heart
as long as she lived.
Today's poem was taken from today's "Jesus Calling."

AGE DOES NOT MATTER

Age does not matter
In the scheme of things
Life is filled with joy
And blessings that it brings.

Age does not matter
If you're young at heart
Abundant life is found in Me
From you I'll not depart.

Age does not matter
Forget all your fears
You have an inner aliveness
And are youthful, in-spite of years.

Age does not matter
Do not let life get you down
Just look to Me
Smile instead of frown.

Age does not matter
Aging is inevitable, you see
Lasting and abundant life
Is found only in Me.

WHEN YOUR DEFENSES ARE DOWN

When your defenses are down
You are venerable, you see
And when you're weak and weary
At that time, please seek Me

When your defenses are own
And you can't find your way
I will light your path
Ans lead you through the day.

When your defense are down
And Satan knocks at your door
Refuse to answer his call
Let me answer, I implore.

When your defenses are down
And you suffer pain or loss
I know just how you feel
I suffered pain on the cross!

To know Me...
You must walk with Me each day!

Welcome to my Garden:
Today's poem was taken from today's "Jesus Calling"

LIVING CLOSE TO ME

Living close to Me...
You receive the gift of peace.
Living close to Me...
Will your fears release.

Living close to Me...
Requires spending time with Me
Living close to Me...
Slow down worldly activity.

Living close to Me...
Prepares you for battles to come.
Living close to Me...
Puts the devil on the run.

Living close to Me...
My blessings on you I'll shower.
Living close to Me...
Puts you in touch with My divine power.

Today's poem was taken from today's "Jesus Calling.'

It's the cross that makes Jesus available to us.

I AM ALWAYS AVAILABLE TO

I am always available to you
If you feel distance from Me, it's only a feeling.
I am always available to you
It is I that offers healing.

I am always available to you
Just as I was he men of old.
I am always available to you
With the sweetest story ever told.

I am always available to you
I watch over you wherever you go.
I am always available to you
On your journey here below.

I am always available to you.
I have promised to be your friend.
I am always available to you
With Me you will always win!

Welcome to my Garden:
Today's poem is taken from today's Jesus calling:

WHISPER, "I TRUST JESUS"

Whisper, "I trust Jesus,"
When your faith wavers, you see.
Whisper, "I trust Jesus,"
For I'm always with thee.

Whisper, "I trust Jesus,"
When you do not understand.
Whisper, "I trust Jesus."
I will take you by the hand.

Whisper, "I trust Jesus,"
When you're overwhelmed with sorrow.
Whisper," I trust Jesus,"
I will be in your every tomorrow.

Whisper, "I trust Jesus,"
When you're afraid or in pain.
Whisper, "I trust Jesus,"
You have so much to gain!

SOME DAYS THE DEMANDS SEEM GREATER THAN YOUR STRENGTH

Some days the demands seem greater than your strength
That's when you kneel to pray.
When life overwhelms you,
I'm with you all the way.

Some days the demands seem grater than your strength
In those circumstances, lean on Me.
Stop and rest your weary body,
I'll bring you peace, you'll see.

Some days the demands seem greater than your strength
When you're discouraged and filled with fear,
Just reach up and hold My hand
I am forever near.

Some days the demands seem greater than your strength
When you're hurting, rely on Me.
I will infuse you with My strength
For now and all eternity!

Freda's Garden:

Welcome to my Garden:
Today's poem was not taken from today's  "Jesus Calling."
It has been three months today since Jim went home to be
with the Lord and I think about him so much and also think:
"Where Have The Years Gone," which is the title of today's
poem.

WHERE HAVE THE YEARS GONE?

Where have the years gone?
We were young and free and full of dreams.
Where have the years gone?
It was only yesterday it seems.

Where have the years gone?
Yesterday, we had small children at our feet.
Where have the years gone?
They were never ours to keep.

Where have the years gone?
We laughed and loved in life together.
Where have the years gone?
We survived the fair or stormy weather.

Where have the years gone?
We watched loved-ones go with dismay.
Where have the years gone?
Now you too have gone away!

Welcome to my Garden!

Today's poem is taken from today's "Jesus Calling"

YOU CAN DO NOTHING APART FROM ME

You can do nothing apart from Me
Nothing eternal, you see.
I want you to lay aside your pride
And not act independently from ME.

You can do nothing apart from Me
My deepest desire, depend on Me.
I'm in your every situation
I'll care for you lovingly.

You can do nothing apart from Me
I'll remove heaven and earth for you.
But I have regard for your freewill
I'm with you in all you do.

You can do nothing apart from Me
Although I've set you free
Use your freedom wisely
And know My peace dwells with thee.

Today's poem was taken from today's "Jesus Calling."

ON THIS DUSTY, EARTHBOUND PATH

On this dusty, earthbound path
I'm your best friend, you see
So take Me by the hand
And walk the path with Me.

On this dusty, earthbound path
Don't act independently
It will bring you disappointment
And I don't want that for thee.

On this dusty, earthbound path
I can bring joy from your sorrow
And life out of the ashes of your dreams
For each and every tomorrow.

On this dusty, earthbound path
From adversity I can bring you peace.
Glory in My presence
And all your fears to Me release!

Today's poem was taken from today's  "Jesus Calling."
"I am the light of the world." John 8:12

TOGETHER WE WILL PUSH BACK THE DARKNESS

Together we will push back the darkness
Of your worries and sorrow
We will walk this journey
 Through each tomorrow.

Together  we will push back the darkness
Of all that you fear
I may not take away your troubles
But you will know I am near.

Together we will push back the darkness
Of all doubt and sin
For I give you a new day
In which to begin again.

Together we will push back the darkness
When the world rushes in
We will climb each mountain together
For I am your Savior and friend!

Today's poem as taken from yesterday's "Jesus Calling"

MIRACLES HAPPEN ALL AROUND

Miracles happen all around
Begin your day with eyes to see.
All the glorious wonders
That I have prepared for thee.

Miracles happen all around
The miracle of each birth
And the beauty I've created
For you upon this earth.

Miracles happen all around
Experience each golden sunrise
And butterfly sightings
Are always a sweet surprise.

Miracles happen all around
A smile on a sweet child's face
The world is filled with wonder
All for My unending grace!

GROW STRONG IN YOUR WEAKNESS

Grow strong in your weakness
Weakness is not a sin.
Grow strong in your weakness
It's how you grow within.

Grow strong in your weakness
It's not a lack of faith
Grow strong in your weakness
It teaches you to wait.

Grow strong in your weakness
Fragility is not punishing you.
Grow strong in your weakness
I'll be glorified in you.

Be strong in your weakness
Learn to lean on Me.
How strong in your weakness
You have My presence constantly.
