A Psalm of Sheela

My heart it aches, I suffer in my youth,

My groans and moans speak for me the truth

But if my grief is caused by Satan’s lies,

What reason have I to cry and cry?

My heart it grows faint within me,

My spirit is far from free

But if my agony should lead me back to Your glory,

Lord, let my restless soul rest in Thee!

P.S. No worries, I am not depressed. Just felt like writing this for anyone who might be going through something heart wrenching. I’ve been there friend.

He Gave Me Gladness

At His feet I cried, I came empty handed, 

He bled for me and died so violently, broken hearted

I said, “I’m sorry I have nothing to give You my Lord, 

I’ve squandered it all for this world;

What good am I to be redeemed and restored?”

He said, “Give Me your heart, give Me your truthful words, 

Give Me your praises, and every hurt you hoard; 

There is nothing I AM not able to do and afford.”

At His feet I cried, full of joy, full of sadness,

He bled for me and died, took my all and gave me gladness.

My Peace of Mind

View this painting in my ART GALLERY.

Original art. 20″ x 24″ Oil on canvas.

I painted this lovely scene in 2009, except it was much gloomier and quite depressing. Just last year, I decided it wasn’t finished and added colors that I believed my heart belted out if it wasn’t for joy. Then I decided it isn’t nearly done if I don’t add a poem. 🙂 I’m probably going to work on this again, because I already see some things I need to touch up on. Always happens after taking a picture. But anyway…..

There exists a beautiful place

Of a blue river flowing with grace

It’s nowhere found on Earth’s face

Not the sight of man can be seen or traced

I walk here when peace is hard to find

I lay here to have that peace of mind

I pray here when the world seems deaf and blind

I return here for a heart that was left behind

When I Stray Away from You

adobe-spark-post (6)

When I stray away from You…

I become prideful and arrogant

I become rude and spiteful

I become greedy and selfish

I become jealous and possessive

I become two-faced and a loud-mouth

I become lazy and irresponsible

When I stray far away from You…

I become gullible and naive

I become lonesome and withdrawn

I become doubtful and worrisome

I become over-emotional and pitiful

I become misunderstood and easily led

I become forgettable and rejected

I become a walking dead

When I stray far, far away from You…

I become hungry for love

I become desperate for balance

I become humbled by Your mercy

I become surrendered and obedient

I become sensitive and patient

When I walk with You…

I become beautiful and strong

I become confident and trustworthy

I become peaceful and loving

I become grateful and rich

I become alive, joyful, and excited for life

I become a leader, an ambassador of truth

I become mature and more faithful

I become complete and one with You

James 1: 2-4 Consider it pure joy, my brothers, whenever you face trials of many kinds, because you know that the testing of your faith develops perseverance. Perseverance must finish its work so that you may be mature and complete, not lacking anything.

Romans 5: 3-5 Not only so, but we also rejoice in our sufferings, because we know that suffering produces perseverance; perseverance, character; and character, hope. And hope does not disappoint us, because God has poured out His love into our hearts by the Holy Spirit, whom He has given us.

James 4:8 Draw near to God and He will draw near to you. Cleanse your hands, you sinners; and purify your hearts, you double-minded.

Psalms 145:18 The LORD is near to all who call upon Him, To all who call upon Him in truth.

I Praise His Name

IMG_6045

I say His name, the mighty name of Jesus,

I shout His name in all the Earth!

I sing His name, He’s worthy of all praises,

I seek His name, how great its worth!

I worship His name, my Lord most glorious,

I receive His name, as I come forth!

I lift His name, before the sun rises,

I pray in His name, I honor His birth!

Look to God

I look to You, no other One

No higher god but Thee,

And in my heart, You’ll see Your Son

Is pleased to live in me,

I pray in Him, Your will be done

All things for Your Glory,

Your work alone has just begun

I’m blessed as one could be,

My heart, it has already won

Just looking up to Thee

How great it is to praise Your name

Oh Christ, I sing

How great it is for me You came,

How precious to me are all Your ways

My Lord and King

How precious to You are all my days,

How awesome it is to walk in Your light

Great love You bring

How awesome it is You give me the sight,

How beautiful it is to see Your face

Oh God, my King

How beautiful to You I seek Your grace,

How grand to me is Your joy and wisdom

Great love You bring

How grand to You is my joy and freedom

How sweet to me the sound of Your Truth

My Lord and King

How sweet to You the fruits of my youth,

How good it is to receive Your love

Oh Christ, I sing

How good it is You’re smiling above

Blind

closed-eyes3-e1506921370734.jpg

She had about her an air of innocence,

Whenever she did breathe this golden silence

You’d be lucky to catch a twinkle in her eyes,

And never would’ve known her lips could tell lies

She walked so tall, oh how she loved the light,

But come the dark hours, come the hush of night

She’d cry tears of pain and sorrow,

But no shoulder could she borrow

Just a lie of hope for a better tomorrow,

And the least a chance to pretend again or show

That her bravest smile could make it so bright,

For the people to see her strength and might

As she walks with her head toward the skies,

No one could really tell how much she tries

With every step to create a balance,

How blind she was, and God was her guidance.
