Welcome to my Garden.
Sometimes we must stop and rest the body, before God can rest the soul.

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

I OFFER REST FOR THE SOUL

I offer rest for the soul
I the midst of life's stormy sea.
I offer rest for the soul
Come unto me.

I offer rest for the soul
And refreshment for the mind.
I off rest for the soul
When the world seems unkind.

I offer rest for the soul
It flows from my temple of grace.
I offer rest for your soul
For on the cross, I took your place.

I offer rest for the soul
So focus on Me
I offer rest for the soul
I will bring joy to thee!

EXPECT ADVERSITY

Expect adversity
It is part of life
No one is exempt
From trouble and strife.

Expect adversity
And be ready, you see
Lay your burden at the cross
I'm waiting for thee.

Expect adversity
For that's where you grow
I shall be with you
Wherever you go.

Expect adversity
There, you encounter My glory
As you rest in My shadow
You tell the world My story.

ACCEPT EACH DAY

Accept each day
As it comes to you
Don't borrow from tomorrow
Whatever you do.

Accept each day
With its sorrow and trouble
If you look beyond that

I know all about you
For you I did form.

Accept each day

I'll carry you through
In all that you do!

I DELIGHT IN YOUR ENJOYMENT

I delight in your enjoyment
In the things I've made for you
So keep sunshine in your heart
All the whole day through.

I'm not a God that's sad and dour
I want you to delight in each bird song
And see me in every flower.

I delight in your enjoyment
I want you to wear a smile
I am with you in everything
I walk with you each mile.

I delight in your enjoyment
And it is no mystery
That when you have hope and trust
Heaven begins on earth, you see!

LIFE IS A CONSTANT CHANGE

Life is a constant change
Young, you will not remain.
Life is a constant change
Things never stay the same.

Life is a constant change
To loved ones we say goodbye.
Life is a constant change
We often don't understand why.

Life is a constant change
Embrace it with faith and hope.
Life is a constant change
God will help us cope.

Life is a constant change
But Jesus changes not, you see.
Life is a constant change
But He remains Savior to you and me.

Welcome to my Garden:

Today's poem was not written from today's "Jesus Calling."
I wrote it several years ago, but it fits the theme so well.

THE CHRISTIAN DRESS
Life on earth is transient
   here we can never stay.
To the Christian it's just a dressing room
   for some eternal day.
A place to clothe our soul
   in the house God loaned us for a time,
And the garment we 're to wear
   should be a very special kind.
First the gown of love
   no other can compare,
Then the robe of faith
   that we all should wear.
The shoes of steadfastness
   we should wear upon our feet,
Then the cloak of hope
   should make our garment most complete.
And when our souls are dressed
   the way God thinks that ought to be
He simply calls us home
   to live eternally!

There's hope for tomorrow.

One step at a time
Though steep be the hill.
One step at a time
I'm with you still.

One step at a time
You can't go it alone.
One step at a time
I'll carry you home.

So come and sit a spell
And communicate with Me.

There's the same amount of time
For everyone, even you.

Sacrifice of time
Sit quietly, let My presence flow.
If you take the time
My peace within will grow.

It's hard to fantom the blessings it will bring
When you sit a spell with me

Nothing can separate you from My love.

You can't fix yourself
No matter how hard you try
You'll only be depressed
And feel you want to cry.

You can't fix yourself

You can't do it by yourself
You will soon realize.

You can't fix yourself

But you can give to God
Each broken part.

You can't fix yourself
But the Great Physician can
Just let Him do His work
And rely on His great plan.

And feel Your Spirit within.

Father quiet my mind
When it is so filled with doubt
Fill me with gratitude
May I never leave You out.

Father, quiet my mind
Reprogram my thoughts each day
Keep me free from worry
As I travel life's highway.

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

WHEN YOUR JOY MEETS MY JOY

When your joy meets My joy
There's fireworks in heavenly places.
When your joy meets My joy
There are heavenly embraces.

When your joy meets My joy
It puts a smile on My face.
When your joy meets My joy
It helps you in life's race.

When your joy meets My joy
Peace will fill your heart.
When your joy meets My joy
My Spirit shall not depart.

When your joy meets My joy
It's a bit of heaven here today.
When your joy meets My joy
It will show others the way.

PRACTICE POSITIVE THOUGHTS

Practice positive thoughts
As you go about your day
Think of special memories
You've had along the way.

Practice positive thoughts
When overwhelmed with sorrow
Have a plan set in your mind
For a happy tomorrow.

Practice positive thoughts
When all alone and blue
If you think on cheerful things
You'll soon be smiling too.

Practice positive thoughts
When you're in a sad mood
Your sadness will melt away
When you have a grateful attitude!

Freda's Garden:

Welcome to my Garden:
We can seek His face in the beauty that surrounds us!


SEEK HIS FACE

Seek His face...
In times of sorrow.
Seek His face...
When you doubt tomorrow.

Seek His face...
When you don't want to try
Seek His face...
When you want to cry.

Seek His face...
When you face fear.
Seek His face...
He's always near.

Seek His face...
When doubt rushes in.
Seek His face...
And begin again!

MY SECURITY RESTS IN GOD

My security rest in God
When I'm anxious and filled with sorrow.
My security rests in God
He will take care of tomorrow.

My security rests in God
When I feel so all alone.
My security rests in God
When I'm out of my comfort zone.

My security rests in God.
He is in control of my life.
My security rests in God
He will see me through all strife.

My security rests in God
He has all things planned, you see.
My security rests in God
And I'm prepared what life brings to me!

PRACTICE PRAISE

Practice praise
To the Lord above.
Practice praise
To the God of love.

Practice praise
When you've broken heart.
Practice praise
And God will not depart.

Practice praise
When you feel it the least.
Practice praise
It will bring you peace.

Practice praise
In the darkest night.
Practice praise
God will make all things right!

Welcome to my Garden:
Don't judge by looks... even cactus have beautiful flowers.

DON'T MAKE JUDGING YOUR PASTIME

Don't make judging your pastime,
We cannot judge one fair.
Don't make judging your pastime,
We need to only show we care.

Don't make judging your pastime,
We've not walked in another's shoes.
Don't make judging your pastime,
We have so very much to lose.

Don't make judging your pastime,
When God has offered release.
Don't make judging your pastime,
If we want a life of peace.

Don't make judging your pastime,
Not even your own life's review.
Don't make judging your pastime,
When God has forgiven you.

TIME ALONE WITH JESUS

Time along with Jesus
Is what I need, you see
I need to reconsider
What He has done for me.

Time alone with Jesus
To get to know His will
To ponder each decision
And hear His "peace be still."

Time alone with Jesus
To let Him mend my heart,
So I can feel His presence
And know He'll not depart.

Time alone with Jesus
He will guide my way
For if He cares for the sparrows
He will get me through each day!
