A Place in You!

Lord, there is a place in You - where  only love abides - where the darkness  that oppresses cannot hide - a place in You where light so bright forever shines - the riches of Your glory are mine - A place in You where peace like a river flows from Your majestic throne - where I know I am truly Your own - a place in You where the heart can be at rest - the strength is given to withstand any test -a place in You is a song so sweet it calms the soul - putting pieces back together to make us complete and whole - under Your sheltering wings - I sing the song of the redeemed - for I have found

The place in you under the shadow of the Almighty God!

A place in You where the flood waters won’t drown - in You I am safe and sound - a place in You where joy unspeakable and full glory reigns - satisfaction like no other - a place in You where the woes of the world melt like lemon drops - troubles are far behind - I see the face that is compassionate, faithful and kind - a place in You where we walk by faith and not by sight - to reach the unreachable heights - the mountains move out of the way - there is a new horizon beckoning a brand new day - there is - a refreshing of the soul - a revival of the spirit - a place in You where I want to stay - and dwell everyday -   where freedom calls me to victory - the impossible has become possible - all is well - for I have been in

A beautiful place in You!

About the Poet
I was born in Lexington County, SC. I lived in Jacksonville, Florida for many years.I recently moved back home to my home town, Columbia, SC. I have one daughter, Kimberly. I now have two brothers. One went to be with the Lord in January, 2010. My Mom went to be with the Lord, Memorial Day May 28, 2012. Among the things I am grateful for and remembering about her is my salvation. She was a strong passionate woman of God all of her life and a beautiful loving Mother. I was saved and baptized in the ocean in Rota, Spain. What an experience that was! Holy Spirit chased me and drew me to Himself, while I was alone in another country. I surrendered to the Lord, and His peace flooded my soul. It was so beautiful. I am so happy he saved me and redeemed me. I am so happy to share these poems from His heart and mine. Poetry is a release and has inspired and encouraged me and many who have read my poetry. I was blessed to write for a number of years on Crossway Publications and had over 300 poems that I wrote on the site. God has increased my gift with more beautiful poetry. In 2005 my poetic writings seemed to catch the fire of God and have a deeper meaning. I thank God for this chance to share my poetry with all. God Bless...
