Your favour shines upon us

And we stand in awe,

Lord, we stand in awe

Of Your might

We lay our lives

At Your feet

There where love and grace will meet

Through every day

We see Your mighty hand

In how You fight

And guide our way

Your favour shines upon us

And we stand in awe,

Lord, we stand in awe

Of Your might

We lay our lives

At Your feet

There where love and grace will meet

Through grace we will rise,

And commit to the task

With gratefulness and praise,

We will lay down our mask

Your favour shines upon us

And we stand in awe,

Lord, we stand in awe

Of Your might

We lay our lives

At Your feet

There where love and grace will meet

Father, You move me

When darkness draws

You bring me light

In times of struggle

You keep the fight

You are everything

You are all to me

Father, You move me

You lift me up

You give me love

Father, You consume me

I raise my hands

I surrender all, Surrender all to You

When sadness comes

You wipe my tears

When I am afraid

You take away the fears

You are everything You are all to me

Father, You move me

You lift me up

You give me love

Father, You consume me

I raise my hands

I surrender all, Surrender all to You

I need nothing more

Nothing more than You

You are everything You are all to me

Ek is lief vir my God, op my eie manier

Waar sal my hulp vandaan kom

Waar sal die opdraendes kom .. ‘n slot som

Wanneer sal die opstandigheid ophou roer

Wanneer sal die duisternis, oplaas nie vir my loer

Hartverskeurende redenasies van pyn

Die galg om my nek, die alewige balans op ‘n lyn

Ontvoering van my wese, my krag

‘n Eindelose stryd teen my emosies slag

My vreugde kom van my God

Wat my onvlugting bewerk

My vreugde kom van my God

Wat my siel oopvlek en ontmerk

Hy is my skuld, my banier

Hy verkwik my siel ..

“On-verwelk” die verwelkte angelier

By Hom is ek veilig en minder verniel 

Ek is lief vir my God, op my eie manier

What can i say

•Maart 9, 2010 • 2 Kommentaar

What can i say

when the minutes tick away

what can is say

when the day is short and life is a-stray

What can i do

when my life becomes a race

what can i do

when my soul won’t stay in place

When will i learn

the roses are to placate

when will i learn

that the moon will not abate

When will my soul

find rest within a day break

when will my soul

find peace within a flowing creak

When will i rest

in the presence of Your peace

when will i rest

in the knowledge of You

That pit of despair

•Augustus 4, 2009 • 1 Kommentaar

That pit of despair

Calling from the depths of me

Crying for desperate repair

That pit of despair

 

The blackness that surrounds me

Consumes the fire of life

Drowns the joy from my soul

And enfolds the song in my mind

 

The sunrise escapes my notice

A moon disappears behind the thunder

The red of a rose, looses its colour

The eyes of a child, oblivious to its love

 

That pit of despair

Calling from the depths of me

Crying for desperate repair

That pit of despair

 

The small wonders of everyday life

Becomes the dread of waking

The mystery of what is night

Becomes the calling card to thinking

 

Life in itself the endless battle

To stay alive, to stay sedated

The calling from my heart

In agony, in pain abated

 

That pit of despair

Calling from the depths of me

Crying for desperate repair

That pit of despair

The “I” in me

•Julie 13, 2009 • 1 Kommentaar

I live my life,

I am my life,

I live what I believe

I create my own existence

 

I walk with my faith in hand

I play my guitar in my life’s band

I strike the cords of every note

I breathe out notes that life can quote

 

I … i really hate the word I … for standing up out of the mud and moving on, moving forward .. living carefree, with now hindrance from the past .. no powerful arms of memory to pull you back into the endless black hole … that is not I .. that is not me .. that is not myself … that is me surrendering my whole existence to the One who encompasses life, love and dreams.

 

You are my rock, my salvation, my strong tower, my redeemer, my Abba father, You are the great I am.  Before you i lay my life, my dreams, and my existence!  In you i move and have my being.  You are a wonderful councillor and my closest friend!

 

When i lose sight of what You are, who You are, i lose sight of who i am …  for in you i find my worth, You validate the fact that i breathe air and wake up every morning.  You give me a reason to smile, a reason to love.  You inspire me to become more than what i am. You guide my feet and rest my weary soul.

Sleepvoet deur die winter

•Junie 3, 2009 • 1 Kommentaar

Ai mensies …. ek sleep behoorlik voete op hierdie stadium.  Hierdie is my gunsteling seisoen… ek VREK behoorlik oor die winter!!  Ek gaan mal oor serpe en handskoene, jasse en dik kouse …… maar ek sleep voet… ek wil net slaap en nog bietjie slaap en nog bietjie slaap.

Dis lekker om weer bietjie hier te kom inloer .. ek is op hierdie stadium ‘n verskriklike booswig wat tyd van die werk steel om hier in te loer en ietsie random neer te pen … Ek mis my blog… ek mis my inspirasie en ek mis die liefde en leed van elke dag…

Een dag lank lank gelede, was daar ‘n meisie wie se hart geklop het … sy het elke oggend op gestaan met ‘n huppel in haar stap en ‘n bonserige krul in haar hare.  Het nog nooit van blusher gehoor nie.. nog minder die verspotte uitheemse goed gebruik … pampoen se hulle … pampoen gee jou krul hare en mooi rooi wangetjies…..

gmf…. pampoen … wat gaan ek eendag my kinders wys maak om hulle te kry net om groente te eet … in elk geval gehasie… die meisie wie se hart geklop het …

Sy het met haar kloppende hart, bonserige krul hare en pragtige rooi wangetjies die wereld verower ……

Tot eendag …

eendag … eendag … eendag …

wat sy besluit het … vandag gaan ek my hare reguit blaas ….

Lekker om julle weer te sien maters

Mooi bly
