To My Nephew

An innocent child

A heart that is wild

We just want you to survive and see you grow

Be still my love, our love we will show

And all will be well in time my dear

I pray to God to wash away my fear.

We cannot wait to see you

Know we are here for you

The dark cloud may have made us blue

But know, we will and forever will love you.

Fold

These are my hands,
They will grow old,
They won’t forever look grand,
But they will never cease to fold…
..in prayer

These are my knees,
They will buckle someday,
Yet they will not cease,
To kneel before you everyday

These are my feet,
They won’t always be strong,
But it will perform a feat,
Walking away from all that’s wrong

This is me,
A sinner
As sinners can be
But I will glorify Your name, always
As You are the reason why I am a winner

I Pray

I met a guy who is not perfect
Yet he could have been God sent had he been mine
Friends we became, friends we are
And I am okay with that, it’s all fine

He could be the one
I could only pray I find a guy like him
He is the one to someone
I wish it were me though
Oh I wish it were

He is God fearing
Loves his family
Thinks of the future
One I can bully

He tells me as it is
Though it may hurt
But I see the truth and he only means well
Like any friend would

If I fall in love with him
I pray, that he be blessed each day
Because I know he can never be mine
Only mine as a friend
To hold for a time

I pray I find a guy like him
A guy like my closest boy friend

My Restless Soul

I wander in this world

I have not been as faithful as I should have been

I live my life not minding where my soul will go

When time is up for me

 

I go on and I pretend

To be the faithful one

Yet I know that deep within

I am a sinful being and have neglected my religious duty

 

Yet God, the kind father that he is, still showers me His blessings

He still listens to me, hear my prayers

Despite me not taking much time to spend with Him

He sends His message through

He calls out to me and makes me feel loved

The kind of love no one else can give

 

My soul wanders through this world

And He waits for me to come back

To come home to Him at last

A Sinner’s Plea

Is God still showing me love
As He looks down from above?
He silently  sheds a tear
as He longs to be near.
To be His child is my true  calling,
So why am I continually falling?
The Sinner’s eternally  cry,
For their broken wings just cannot fly.
Now I long to  change…that’s what I say,
But why is it that I won’t pray?
What is it  going to take
To finally make me break?
Where is that longing  fire
That showed my true hearts desire?
What will be the final cost
If  I forever am lost?
I still am crying out to be free,
But is this my hearts  true plea?
I have it all right in front of me,
Still my covered eyes  cannot see.

Conversation With God

Every night before I sleep
I look up to the Heavens and try not to  weep.
For my heart is full
with the Lords will,
My strength, my health & pockets full.
He has blessed me every day
Since birth till  today.
Thank you Lord
cause now I can afford,
to testify and praise  you
Precious, love and True-
Thank you.

When The Earth Shook

The Earth shook me

Almost threw me aside

My life did not flash before my eyes

But it was then that I realized I may not make it.

However, the Lord did plan it that way

He made me realize my existence

and that I need to keep my faith

I am not afraid for I know You are with me

You had to shake the Earth for me to take notice

But I hear you

Loud and clear

 

 

***Please pray for the people in Bohol, Philippines, they badly need it. We here in Cebu are under a state of calamity but those in Bohol have been affected the most.  Thanks in advance for all your prayers.
