How Far I Have Traveled By Brenda Drake

How Far I Have Traveled

How far I've traveled in my life,
I was lost and blind, but now, I'm found with new insight.
From the dark grasp of doom and gloom; I've been set free.
I walk in the light, as the Light, walks in me.
Fear, was a constant companion; that always pulled me down.
But now my Lord has pulled me to higher ground
Worry; burdened my heart, and, circumstances blocked my path.
Now, by faith I see a future bright, and my Lord, my burdens pack.
Hope is always nearby ... gone, is the weight of dread.
The Word of God, has spoken into my life, and paves the way ahead.
I've traveled, far away, from my past and shame.
My Lord has paid my debt, and has given me, the honor of His name.
I still walk, through dry places; and through storms that blow,
But presently, God is my drink, and, the shelter for my soul.
I used to feel so alone, and afraid of what lay ahead.
But today, I remember, all my God has said.
He says He never will leave me; for He lives within.
He goes before me... as I follow after Him.
He is, for me; what have I to fear, I ask?
I travel toward a heavenly city, and,I will not look back.
I walk from death to life, and from life, to life evermore,
To be with Jesus, my Savior, and my risen Lord!

Prov 3:6
In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths.

Isa 30:21
And thine ears shall hear a word behind thee, saying, This is the way, walk ye in it, when ye turn to the right hand, and when ye turn to the left.

Praise and prayer cause heavenly activity;
Angels rush to minister and to set free.
When you are weak and need rest,
An angel may be sent to assist.
When you are surrounded, and feel trapped,
The lifted prayer, alerts them, to your enemy attack.
When you are sad and have lost hope in life,
God sends someone, to encourage, and to give new insight.
Many times when the enemy attacks;
It is an angel, that fights them back.
Angles, are present in the congregation, to observe,
The teacher, and the Comforter, as they administer God's Word.
They marvel at the proceedings, and they work in accord,
As they do the work ordained by the Lord.
If eyes are opened; so great is the numbers seen,
That encircle God's redeemed.
Their only purpose, is to glorify God, and to serve mankind.
Angels are always, and will always, with God's Word align;
Never to be worshiped or to their wisdom seek.
Never, is it proper for men to pursue to with them speak.
They are always near but rarely are they perceived;
But at their toil in your behalf; they work continuously.

Luke 15:10 Likewise, I say unto you, there is joy in the presence of the angels of God over one sinner that repenteth.

Heb 1:14 Are they not all ministering spirits, sent forth to minister for them who shall be heirs of salvation?

Heb 13:2 Be not forgetful to entertain strangers: for thereby some have entertained angels unawares.

I Will See You Through
by Brenda Drake

Place your shortcomings at my feet.
Do not allow them to cause defeat
You know you are not perfect and many flaws you may see inside,
But, if you put your trust in me, in my righteousness you abide
I know, you do not feel worthy
To be a disciple, nor able to work on earth, for me.
I know some things; looks too hard to mend,
However, I see the deepest thoughts, and the motives within.
I know you forget, and loose faith, that I love you so.
But, I will strengthen and build you up; till in you it overflows.
When the vision, is clouded, by trials of life,
Remember your Lord, is your guiding light.
You cannot, fully comprehend, a love as great defined.
Nonetheless, trust and believe, all will be as I've designed
Trust in God's goodness and believe in His care not in what you see.
Examine the promises, the Word, says will be.
Jesus, the Word, will see you through; as we are now one.
Follow the Son of God and watch for He soon comes.

Ps 139:1-10 O LORD, thou hast searched me, and known me.Thou knowest my downsitting and mine uprising, thou understandest my thought afar off Thou compassest my path and my lying down, and art acquainted with all my ways. For there is not a word in my tongue, but, lo, O LORD, thou knowest it altogether.Thou hast beset me behind and before, and laid thine hand upon me. Such knowledge is too wonderful for me; it is high, I cannot attain unto it.Whither shall I go from thy spirit? or whither shall I flee from thy presence? If I ascend up into heaven, thou art there: if I make my bed in hell, behold, thou art there. If I take the wings of the morning, and dwell in the uttermost parts of the sea; Even there shall thy hand lead me, and thy right hand shall hold me.
