The Pearl of Great Price

The Pearl of Great Price

He found her hiding in the field
An undiscovered work of art
the pearl of great price
Covered with a little dirt
*
He jumped for joy at such a find
Buried treasure of great value
She was worthy of so much more
He sold everything to buy her back
*
He made the ultimate sacrifice
The Redeemer gave his life
His cherished beloved bride
She is the pearl of great price

The earth declares your goodness
The mountains sing your praise
The nations bow before You
Today is a good day

*

Sing to Him oh Heavens
Rejoice in Him oh Earth
Burst into song oh mountains
Today is a good day

*

We stand before The Lord
We march behind His banner
The Lord of Hosts defends us
Today is a good day

*

We live inside Your grace
Your mercy’s all around
We magnify Your name
Today is a good day

*

My lips drop praise like fountains
I lift high your praise
Your banner over me is love
Today is a good day

Magic Carpet

Magic Carpet

carpet 2

Don’t need a tarnished old lamp
Don’t need a magic carpet to fly
God’s mercy is greater than magic
His promises, more faithful than spells
*
We don’t need a cave for wonders
miracles and signs happen every day
The Kingdom of Heaven is here
when we pray and receive today
*
The children of God are not paupers
Already Princes and Princesses
adopted into His family
Don’t need to rub a lamp, make a wish
*
No mischievous little brown monkeys
No Genies with three fake wishes
Because The Way, Truth, and Life
doesn’t need a magic carpet to fly

Secrets

Secrets

Copyright 2013. Diana Rasmussen
They lived in the darkness
Strangled self esteem
feed on my fears
Paralyzed dreams
*
Covert operators
Multiplied with lies
Suffocating
The hope inside
*
I cry out for the Light
Secrets and Darkness flee
His Life is Light
Truth sets me free

The Lord is My Banner

The Lord is My Banner

The Lord is my banner
My guiding principle
The one I follow
In battle and in peace
*
On the way to war
He goes before
Jehovah Nissi
Lead us as we pray
 *
In the battleground its planted
Waving in the breeze
Reminds us what were fighting for
Honor is waving free
 *
In the fight we wave it
Triumph over enemies
Reignite our passion
to not give up and run
 *
When the battle is over
We parade it proudly
On display for all to see
Celebrate our victory

Beware

Beware

Copyright 2013 Diana Rasmussen
From seanjutzi.thoughts.com
From seanjutzi.thoughts.com
Beware of liars, deceivers,
Pharisees and cheaters,
Identity thieves
trying to steal your grace.
*
They act all religious, can quote you all the lines.
But they stab you in the back each and every time.
They focus on the law, the ministry of death.
Never pointing to the grace Jesus died to give.
*
They’re Killers of the Spirit in whitewashed graves,
Hypocritical and counterfeit in their ways.
Just a ceremony to keep them on the throne.
They steal from the widows, ignore the fatherless.
*
A  great big show, cheap imitation of His grace.
Only feeding themselves, greedy with every breath.
Wolves in sheep’s clothing, waiting to devour the flock.
You’ll know them by their fruits, False Prophets till the end.

Grace Like Rain

GRACE LIKE RAIN

© 2013 Diana Rasmussen

Your Word gave birth to the Earth.
Your Wisdom gives shape to our world.
God of beginning and end,
Hold us up by Your hand.

*

Lord, let your Word fall like rain,
arrive like the morning dew.
Like a sprinkler on the grass,
like showers in the garden.

*

As we come to You and pray,
send Heaven’s thunder and rain.
Let the clouds become rivers
As we acknowledge Your Name.

Keep Your Eyes on the Prize

KEEP YOUR EYES ON THE PRIZE
© 2012 Diana Rasmussen
Keep your eyes on the Prize,
He is calling your name.
Time to lay down your net,
You’re a fisher of men.
*
There is no turning back,
You are not who you were.
What you did is not who you are,
Keep your eyes on the Prize.
*
In this world there are trials,
troubles, and tribulations.
Don’t lose your hope,
Keep your eyes on the Prize.
*
God is birthing a new thing,
You are pregnant with Promise,
You already look like Him.
Keep your eyes on the Prize.
*
You can’t give birth without pain,
Pain & passion are twins.
It will lead you to Him,
Keep your eyes on the Prize.
*
Follow the sound of His voice,
Walk out your heavenly calling.
Grace is already supplied,
Keep your eyes on the Prize.

The Object of His Love

lonlinessThe Object of His Love

© 2013 Diana Rasmussen

In the fire of affliction,
the valley of despair,
Carrying burdens
He refused to leave me there.
*
He wraps His arms around me
restores my peace of mind.
Takes me by the hand.
helps me up so I can stand.
*
He melts every fear I had,
the friend I never knew.
looks on me with love,
grace and mercy from above.
*
The Lord carries my worries,
His love heals all my scars.
He restores my soul.
the Father I never had.
*
His love is greater than my pain.
The desire of my heart
the healer of my soul
I’m the object of His love.

Shine Your Light

Shine Your Light

© 2013 Diana Rasmussen

Send the fire of Your Spirit
to the alter of my heart.
Come into the hidden places
Shine your Light upon my heart.

*

Come behind the hidden door
rooms of Pain and Suffering.
Places I’ve stuffed my feelings,
or tried to numb them anyway.

*

Wash the windows of my soul
with Your ever – cleansing blood.
Sweep away mountains of shame,
chase out dustballs of regret.

*

Lord, You turn my sorrow into joy.
Pour out Your Love and Grace.
Fill up all the empty places,
Shine your Light upon my heart.

If you [really] love Me, you will keep (obey) My commands.

 And I will ask the Father, and He will give you another Comforter (Counselor, Helper, Intercessor, Advocate, Strengthener, and Standby), that He may remain with you forever—

The Spirit of Truth, Whom the world cannot receive (welcome, take to its heart), because it does not see Him or know and recognize Him. But you know and recognize Him, for He lives with you [constantly] and will be in you. (JOHN 14:15-17 AMP)

GOD’S PROTECTION

© 2013 Diana Rasmussen

God’s arm is full of power and might,
His hand is strong and high
He lifts His arm and delivers me,
my enemies they flee.
*
The Lord is my shield,
He is my exceeding great reward,
My tower from the enemy,
my shelter in the storm.
*
The Lord is my protection,
His glory encamps around me.
His fire devours my enemies,
His deliverance I see.
*
The fire of God surrounds me,
He keeps me me from all harm.
Evil cannot touch me,
I’m protected by His arm.
*
There is power from His mighty hand,
salvation from His arm.
His strong right hand and powerful arm
enforce the victory.
*
Though 1000 stand on one side,
and 10,000 more beside,
My Lord lifts up His mighty arm
and then delivers me.
*
He is my shield of protection,
He watches over my life.
His glory is all around me,
His protection covers me.

Meet Her in Her Brokenness

Meet Her in Her Brokenness

© 2013 Diana Rasmussen

They were married for years when he said goodbye.
Walked away from promises he made.
She found herself forsaken, betrayed.
Lord, meet her in her brokenness.
*
Another broken heart in a broken world,
trying to make sense of her suffering.
Life isn’t fair, it doesn’t always make sense.
Lord meet her in her brokenness.
*
She kneels by her bed every night in prayer.
Praying for a child lost in addiction;
drinking and drugging to numb the pain.
Lord meet her in her brokenness.
*
Another broken heart in a broken world,
trying to make sense of her suffering.
Life isn’t fair, it doesn’t always make sense.
Lord meet her in her brokenness.
*
The kids moved out, and the house is too quiet.
She’s left with boxes of her memories.
Trying to figure out where time went.
Lord, meet her in her brokenness.
*
Another broken heart in a broken world,
trying to make sense of her suffering.
Life isn’t fair, it doesn’t always make sense.
Lord meet her in her brokenness.
