A Mothers Last Goodbye

“Good-bye my daughter dear,” she said As tears welled up in her eyes “It’s time for me to go to sleep This must be no surprise The good Lord knows my battles And my health is ailing still He’s given me so many blessings I’ve passed them to you in my will I’m sad to say good-bye For we have shared much joy Remember me to Sarah My grandchild I love and enjoy I love you my daughter These years together have been sweet I’m so glad you love the Lord And again we will meet I’m not afraid of dying ‘Cause I know that in a while Christ will call me from my grave I feel my life has been worthwhile For I taught you to seek your Father To help you through every trial He’ll always be there to guide you With never a denial I leave you in His hands”, she said As she gently kissed her daughter’s hand Her eyes closed very slowly Against cancer she’d lost her stand She’d been a wonderful mother Teacher and true friend Faithful to her Lord And gracious to the end.

Pray For Protection

Pray For Protection “2 The LORD is my rock, my fortress, and my savior; my God is my rock, in whom I find protection. He is my shield, the power that saves me, and my place of safety.“ Psa 18:2 NLT Pray For Protection For yourself and your loved ones. You need daily protection From the evil that comes. Satan comes to pull you down, Demotivate and destroy. You need protection in this battle; God’s army to deploy. Pray For Protection; For your safety and your health; You require protection for your home; Your finances and your wealth. Pray For Protection From the devil’s many schemes. He’s created a million or more, Or so it actually seems. Pray For Protection For your loved ones’ welfare. Pray for their health; Their safety and daily care. Ask the Lord to show you, For what you need to pray; To preserve those you love, Each and every day. Pray For Protection For your nation and its leaders. Pray for their guidance and honesty, And freedom from slander. Pray for your church And the folk in your congregation. You can really make a difference, When you Pray For Protection! © Copyright 2012 Maureen LeFanue www.maureenlefanue.com

Everlasting Love

Everlasting Love “3 The LORD has appeared of old to me, saying:“Yes, I have loved you with an everlasting love; Therefore with loving kindness I have drawn you.” Jer 31:3 NKJV You have loved me, Lord With an Everlasting Love. With your loving kindness, You have drawn me to your throne above. I cannot grasp the enormity of your love, That surpasses human knowledge, But I long to be in your presence; Count it such a privilege. Because of your Everlasting Love, And the richness of your mercy, Even when I was dead in sin, Your love for me was lofty. Thank you for your patience— Not wanting me to perish; Gifting me the hope of eternity, And immortality that will flourish. By your grace you gave me life, When I was truly dead in sin. You loved me undeservedly And changed me from within. Help me understand your heart That overflows with love divine. Let your love radiate through me to others; From the depths of my soul to shine. May others find your salvation, And by your Everlasting Love be made whole. May heaven be filled with billions For I know that is your goal. May your loving kindness Be seen in my life today. May others find your Everlasting Love, For this is what I pray. © Copyright 2012 Maureen LeFanue www.maureenlefanue.com

Parable of the Seed

Parable of the Seed “10 He said, “The knowledge of the secrets of the kingdom of God has been given to you, but to others I speak in parables, so that, “‘though seeing, they may not see; though hearing, they may not understand.’11 “This is the meaning of the parable: The seed is the word of God. 12 Those along the path are the ones who hear, and then the devil comes and takes away the word from their hearts, so that they may not believe and be saved.” Luke 8:10-12 NIV We are the soil, and God’s Word the seed— God is the farmer of the field. The birds of the air is Satan and his host, To whom the wicked yield. When the seed falls on stony ground, It withers in the sun and dies. But when it falls on healthy soil, On the Lord, it continually relies. Good seeds are the Children of the Kingdom; Weeds belong to the wicked one. God’s seed represents His words of truth; The weeds God’s truth have shun. Let’s be like the soil of the mustard seed And produce a tree of might. When the birds lodge in its shadows, They cannot destroy with blight. The Word of God is a mighty seed, When spoken and when read; Mightier than many tall trees, Where the ‘birds of the air’ have bed. When we submit to the ‘farmer’, And devour His precious truth seed; Allow Him to tend and water us, With heaven we’ll be agreed. So when the Word of God is spoken And truth absorbed with great delight, The soil [saints] will prosper and flourish— Of wickedness lose sight. But when seed falls on the pathway, That’s trodden down by time, The heart is not receptive; Has no desire for truth divine. © Copyright 2012 Maureen LeFanue www.maureenlefanue.com

I Fix My Eyes On Eternity

I Fix My Eyes On Eternity “17 For our light and momentary troubles are achieving for us an eternal glory that far outweighs them all. 18 So we fix our eyes not on what is seen, but on what is unseen, since what is seen is temporary, but what is unseen is eternal.” 2 Cor 4:17-18 NIV I Fix My Eyes On Eternity, And deny my flesh worldly lusts. The will of the flesh reaps corruption; The will of the Spirit’s a must. I will live soberly and righteously By the power of God from on high. I depend entirely on my Father— His promises, He’ll not deny. My sinful nature has been put to death; My life’s now hidden with my Lord. I Fix My Eyes On Eternity, Enabling me to stay in heaven’s accord. My Lord will purify me And redeem me from every lawless deed. In my heart, He’s fixed eternity To grow and bloom like a farmer’s seed. I look for the blessed hope And the glorious second coming of my Lord. To focus on this world and its cares, I simply cannot afford. Christ is the author and finisher Of my faith that does reside. In His grace and loving mercy, My life I presently hide. I Fix My Eyes On Eternity— Life in heaven and the earth made new. My heart yearns for the permanent; Not like earth’s temporary venue. I imagine my body made immortal— No more pain or sickness within. A life that’s filled with joy, peace and love— A kingdom that’s free from sin! © Copyright 2012 Maureen LeFanue www.maureenlefanue.com

The Easter Prayer of Thanks

The Easter Prayer of Thanks "2 There was a violent earthquake, for an angel of the Lord came down from heaven and, going to the tomb, rolled back the stone and sat on it. 3 His appearance was like lightning, and his clothes were white as snow." Matt 28:2-3 NIV God, thank you for the gift of Easter; The sacrifice of your Son so treasured. To save our souls through your grace and mercy, That by heaven alone can be measured. Thank you for giving us hope; The hope of life after the grave. Winter dies and Spring comes to life— The resurrection of the saved! Your hand rules the universe With great glory and power. We give thanks for your love for us, And for every beautiful opening flower. We thank you for the birds That sing your praises every morn, And for the lofty mountains That with Winter's snow you adorn. Thank you for friends and family And the blessings that they bring, At this very special time— Christ's resurrection and the grandeur of Spring! Thank you for salvation Made possible by your love. Thank you that we have the hope of heaven— Easter's promise from above. May we all meet our Redeemer, As you come for us in the air, Because of Easter's hope of eternity, and the privilege of prayer! Amen Copyright © 2012 Maureen LeFanue www.maureenlefanue.com

The Many Ways God Speaks To Us

The Many Ways God Speaks To Us There are many ways God’s seeking To make Himself known. But is man listening and looking To understand Nature’s revealing crown. It talks to our human senses Every waking moment of the day. And in the night so deep and dark, His starry heavens come into play. In the smile of a new born baby And those tiny hands so sweet, God shows us His creation glory Our own image to repeat. In Spring it is the flowers And their aromatic perfume; The lambs frisking with each other; Birds and their babies singing the same tune. In the lakes and babbling brooks He speaks to us as well. Full of fish and waterfalls— Many ignored stories to tell. The wind whispering through the trees But never can be seen; Sways the tallest of the forest; Then disappears like a dream. We see Him in the thunder storm And in lightning bolts so bright. They light up His majestic heavens, Even in the darkest night. In the white snow of winter, When those flakes begin to fall, Gently in their uniqueness They rest to cover one and all. If we would but look and listen To see God’s many ways Of teaching us precious lessons Of obedience and praise. Stars in their trackless courses Follow their appointed place and time. Why does man think he’s so different; Self-sufficient, yet needing the Divine? The many ways God speaks to us Are far too many to name. How can anyone say, “There’s no God”, Such blindness should be put to shame. God’s creation is all around us In the sun, moon, stars and sea; In everything beautiful He’s created That surrounds us lovingly. Copyright © Maureen LeFanue 2012 www.maureenlefanue.com

The Pain and the Agony

The Pain and the Agony The Pain and the Agony Jesus felt that day; It tortured His being; Death held no delay. Even to take a breath The pain was so extreme; The sins of us all, Crushed him beam to beam. The cross of the Romans; Built to inflict much pain. The pain of our sin-bearer Was suffered for our gain. Because He truly loves us, He was prepared to die. Stricken on the cross, Few heard His agonizing cry! The cross was one of victory— Victory over death, When Christ gave up the Spirit; Breathed His last breath. Satan in his ignorance Thought he’d finally won; Didn’t know this was just the beginning; New life would be given God's only Son. The Pain and the Agony; Blood was shed for you and me. This ultimate sacrifice God gave to set us free; Freedom from the bondage Of sin that Satan brought, Upon a sinless Eden, To bring us sin's onslaught.

Guide Me - Prayer

“Thou shalt guide me with Thy counsel, and afterwards receive me to glory.” Psa 55:22 Lord I seek your guidance For your counsel is sure Show me Your will May my transgressions be fewer Your guidance is necessary And Your counsel essential For me to see your glory To reach my full potential Of myself I have no power So I daily beseech The guidance and counsel You willingly teach I am not always as surrendered As you want me to be To prepare me for glory With a powerful testimony Give me the courage To show others the way Share your wise counsel To those gone astray Let them know that works Will never suffice That’s why You made The ultimate sacrifice Your promise of glory I want dearly to share With my brothers and sisters I want to be there Please God make them willing To hear Your words See the guidance and counsel That your glory affords We are but helpless In our human plight Give us your wise counsel Eyes wide open for your great insight.

In My Heart Theres A Melody

IN MY HEART THERE’S A MELODY In my heart there’s a melody A song that must be sung That melody is sweeter Than when it first begun Each day the joy increases As that melody persists That melody is Jesus A melody, my heart cannot resist. In my heart there’s a melody I want all the world to share This melody’s so sweet It fills any heart that cares. Cares for a brother To help him on his way Place a touch of heaven’s joy In another’s heart today. In my heart there’s a melody Placed there by my Saviour To make this life more joyful Regardless of other’s behaviour. For this melody transcends Every single circumstance Joy reigns supreme Regardless of encumbrances. In my heart there’s a melody It’s not a human thing But a spiritual blessing That the Holy Spirit brings. It is my prayer for you That you will hear it too For this melody’s so beautiful Of this world, it’ll change your view. Copyright © Maureen LeFanue 2007-2012 www.maureenlefanue.com
