 My today's thoughts

BEYOND MEASURE








BEYOND MEASURE

There he sits in the corner
bidding his time waiting waiting ever waiting

He picks his bloodstained teeth while
waiting  waiting  waiting

His teeth are stained from the blood of
the many saints he had wounded in his quest for their soul

His fangs and claws poised for another killing strike
his evil is in that corner

I feel his presence I smell his decaying breath
His yellow eyes flash all about seeing who else he can destroy

–––––––––––––––––––––––––––––
–––––––––––––––––––––––––––––


Then I feel Another's presence
Strong and mighty as He takes His regal stance

Standing between me and the flashing yellow eyes
His presences fills my room with great peace and mighty joy

His name I had called on before I lay down
"please I ask for Your healing balm on my body

Restore to me my physical strength the enemy
wants to steal

From the top of my head to the bottom of my feet
to the tips of each of my fingers

New life into me I pray You make flow
This is a gift that only You can give"

–––––––––––––––––––––––––––––

His warm healing hands I do feel
soft as a mother's touch when soothing her suffering child

I close my eyes and again thank my Lord
for His gift of healing He gives to me

I ask Him while He was there to bless my children
and their lives to please restore

He gave me peace beyond measure
He gave me the assurance He is here and near to them too


–––––––––––––––––––––––––––––

I close my eyes and drift off to sleep
I feel His angels presence near to me

Safe and secure in His protection I sleep
Knowing the evil one has been banished from my home
