Building a Home for Jesus




I lay wood down on the foundation of my heart
nails pressed deep into my soul
I've mapped it out just for you
Each side wide and stable for the permanent stay
Walls of stone carved with your name
Bright Lights shine through the window panes
All I see is your beautiful face
I built a home for you
Wood stacked upon my chest
I built a home for you to rest
Each door left open
for my majesty
nothing left to hide
Oh dear Lord, stay and sleep
in the home I built for you and me.


This house has been torn down a thousand times
but your always there outside its doors
waiting for me to nail down the floors
Even when a tornado hits
and all my work is torn to bits
Your by my side with a hammer in hand
re-building the home that you had planned
Each nail digs deeper into my heart
knowing that we will never part.

With wood and nails
a life was taken
With wood and nails
life was given
With wood and nails
the son has risen

Walls of stone carved with your name
Bright Lights shine through the window panes
All I see is your beautiful face
I built a home for you
Wood stacked upon my chest
I built a home for you to rest.

Oh dear Lord, stay and sleep
in the home I built for you and me.

Glorifying Jesus in The Valley


"We all wish to go to the mountain top with God, and stay there, we say 'if only we could stay here with you, we would be good- and follow you.'
But the true meaning of life is to be in the valley, to glorify the lord. After death is the time we can be on his mountain top with our savior, forever. But for now we should pray to have every chance we get to be in the valley, and glorfiy our lord."
-Isabela Delclos

I can't remember if
I wrote this or if I heard it and changed it up, but either way it's saying that we all wish for the moments when The lord gives us peace and happiness. We pray that he gives it to us more often and we pray to have it for longer periods of time. We know that it would make it so much easier to follow his rules, to obey his teachings, to love others. If only we could have that peace in us forever. Jesus wants us to have this peace, but the true meaning of life is to be in this world to show everyone his glory. After death is when we will have FULL peace and happiness. He will always be there to give you peace and happiness on Earth as well, but you have to be in the world and go through the pain and the heart ache to serve Jesus and to follow the will of God. He gave your life purpose, Jesus gave your life meaning...whatever that purpose may be you must know that God wants you to glorify him during our time here in this world and that it was we were meant for. Being in the valley helps you to glorify him and to show the world that he is the one and only Savior of mankind and that with him you can get through anything, even the horrid trials of this world.

Heaven.


I can picture it.

The Joy of a child upon me again.
We graze in his holy lands and gather round like children.
He sits on his throne, smiling.
He knows every one of us well.
We smile and laugh and listen to his words for they are all true.
We feast and
pray and never sleep for the Joy is continuous.
I recognize my family, friends, and others
too, but do not realize those whom are missing.
Colors never seen, textures never felt, and knowledge never learned are over me now. I am
happy, smiling, running, for my feet tread no boundaries. No awful memory slips through my mind, for I live in God's home now.
A deep feeling settles and finally there is
peace.
