My Light in Shining Armor

Second Coming Jesus 01

My Light in Shining Armor 

By Sindy Nagel

 

You called me out of darkness

Into Your glorious light

Where once my eyes were blinded

You gave me back my sight

 

You freed me from the prison

Where Satan held the key

No longer am I bound by lies

Your truth has set me free

 

You reached down with a mighty hand

And pulled me from the pit

You set my feet on solid ground

A new light in my heart you lit

 

You’re my song every morning

My friend throughout the day

You whisper truth into my ears

When I make the time to pray

 

My comfort and my guide You are

I trust you my life to You

You walk with me in challenges

In trials, You see me through

 

Your praise I will forever sing

Your joy flows from my heart

You’ve blessed my life in countless ways

I don’t know where to start

 

Thank You for your goodness

In my weakness, You are strong

You comfort me in sorrow

And change my grieving into song

 

You’re my bread when I am hungry

My manna for each day

Your living water quenches thirst

You are my hope and stay

 

You took my wretched, dreary soul

And gave my heart new zest

To live a life that pleases You

And offer You my best

 

Accept my praise to You today

As lowly as it seems

You are my Light in Shining Armor

The Man of all my dreams

 

Thank You, Jesus. You’re the Best!

 

 

The Good Shepherd

sheep“I am the good shepherd; I know my sheep and my sheep know me—just as the Father knows me and I know the Father—and I lay down my life for the sheep.” (John 10:14-15)

I am the Good Shepherd and you are my sheep. A good shepherd lays down his life for his sheep, as I have laid down my life for you. When you wander away from the flock, I search for you myself until I find you. I call you by name and lead you home. I gather you up as a lamb in my arms and carry you close to my heart. I bind up your wounds and strengthen you in your weakness. I shelter you from the storm and protect you from your enemy. I feed you in rich green pastures and provide living water for your thirsty soul. I know my sheep and my sheep know me. I and my Father are One. When you know me, you know my Father as well. My sheep follow me because they know my voice. Listen to my voice and follow me where I lead you. I will not lead you astray. I am the gate for the sheep. Enter through the gate and receive the rich blessings of a life in me. I am the Good Shepherd, and I will take care of you.

I Call You By Name

The man who enters by the gate is the shepherd of his sheep. The watchman opens the gate for him, and the sheep listen to his voice.  He calls his own sheep by name and leads them out. When he has brought out all his own, he goes on ahead of them, and his sheep follow him because they know his voice. (John 10:2-4)

My child, you are more than just my daughter. I love you, and I have called you by name. You are my precious lamb. I conceived you in my mind before I created the world. I formed you in your mother’s womb, and I ordained all your days before one of them came to be. I have engraved you on the palms of my hands. I will not forget you! I am with you always. You are special to me. Spend time with me today and listen to my voice. Let my words be food for your hungry soul and water for your thirsty spirit. Delight in me and experience my joy and peace. You are my child, called by my name. (See Psalm 139:13-16, Isaiah 49:16)

Precious in His Sight

My dear child, you are precious. I love you more that you will ever comprehend. You are the crown of my creation. I am your Father; you are my darling daughter. I am the King; that makes you a princess. You are royalty in my kingdom here on earth.

You are made in my image. You are stunningly beautiful. You radiate the brilliance of my light in your eyes and in your smile. You give generously to others with your time and devotion. You love and nurture all those around you. You exhaust yourself meeting the needs of others. You empty yourself to fill another.

Come to me, my child. Let me lavish you with my love. Bask in knowledge that I love you more than you understand. Come to me and let me refresh your weary soul. Spend time with me alone, and I will rejuvenate your spirit. I will energize you with my presence and my word. Sit quietly with me, and listen to my voice.

I love spending time with you. Please take time to meet with me away from the noise and distractions of your busy life. Draw on my peace. It is available to you at all times.  I am the Prince of Peace, and my Spirit lives in your heart. You have access to my peace whenever you need it. Be still and know me more intimately.

You are my child; I am your Father. I am with you always. I will never leave you or forget about you. I care for you immensely. Drink deeply from  the well of my love. Drink until your thirsty soul is satisfied.  Make time for me. I am your daddy. Let me hold you in my arms. I will rejoice over you with singing and quiet you with my love. My love for you is so great that I gave the life of my Son for you. Will you now give your life to me? Live in the abundance that I have come to give you. Seek me and you will find me. I am right here waiting to connect with you. Listen to my voice and live the life I intended for you. I love you, my child.
