The diary of my life.

Posted by appolus on January 19, 2017

Below are the poems I wrote last year stating with January and moving forward. Some people have a diary, my diary is the poems that I write.

Kissed by Justice and Mercy

Justice and mercy have kissed
And my heart was broken and healed
Your love which I so long dismissed
Now covers forever and seals

Oh Lord of heaven above
And of earth and sky and sea
How I rest in the warmth of your love
Once was shackled but now I am free

Your love and truth are my guiding light
And your mercy never comes to an end
Your fire and glory light up the night
While you fall down from the heavens you rend

Fill up the valley my glorious King
Flood the whole earth with joy and with praise
Look kindly upon the sacrifice I bring
That I may follow you all of my days

Oh justice take the hand of mercy
That glory may dwell in our land
IN the shadow of victorious Calvary
Where sin lost its final last stand!

My First Love

We have only one life to live
We have only so much to give
So let’s give it sacrificially
That we may live life beautifully

Far from the grasping crowd
I’m running from all that is loud
Just want to walk with the sun and the breeze
Hands silently raised and falling to my knees

I just want to hear the rain fall
See the birds fly and listen to them call
Maybe see a deer around the bend
Talk about my passion with a friend

I see the sun in the sky-high above
As I walk back towards my first love
I’m losing everything that has weighed me down
So I can run to Him at His feet to be found.

I’m traveling light on my journey now
My heart has been furrowed by the plow
I’ve cried tears and raged at the moon
But now it’s time to walk for my Master’s coming soon.

Nothing else matters only He
Coming back to the one who set me free
My heart now longs for just one touch
To hear Him whisper in my ear would be so much

To the glory and the King of majesty
Loving and living with all simplicity
An ear to hear and a heart to sing
The praises of His glory,my risen King.

A Rising Crimson Tide

There is a rising Crimson tide
That burns inside of me
Tis from my wounded Master’s side
Which flows from Calvary

This fire was set when I met Him
So very long ago
And though the years are passing me
This fire will always flow

It rises and consumes my heart
This heart He gave to me
This fire consumes my very soul
Which flows from Calvary

And from His nail pierced hands it flows
And trickles down on me
Who kneels below this Crimson flow
The cross of Calvary

And I am raised up by the tide
Of Crimson’s glorious fire
His blood it cleanses all of me
And raises me up higher

It take me all the way to heaven
To stand before His throne
I lift my hands and worship Him
For me His Blood atoned.

Consumed by a fire of molten Love
That flowed on me from up above
Igniting every part of me
Thank God in Christ for Calvary

Just To Be Found In You

Can you hear the beat of my heart
And my tears as they fall to the floor
And the cry that comes from the depths of my heart
Oh Lord wont you open up the door?

How I long for the tabernacle of your presence
Your glorious majesty that’s there to be found
How my heart longs to be where you are
In the midst of your glory that’s all around

It can be a dry and dusty narrow path
Surrounded by desert sand
I thank you Lord for the moments in time
When I simply take hold of your hand.

These moments of glory then down comes the rain
Glory and majesty and agonizing pain
Bring on the pain and let the rain fall
As for me and mine we shall follow the call

Lord you know the beginning from the end
And in spite of myself you call me your friend
So the thunders shall roar and the mountains shall fall
No matter the cost I am gonna stand tall

For you took what was dead and wasting away
You raised me to heaven and taught me to pray
So as long as I live and the sky above is blue
I’ll walk through the fires just to be found in you.

God Is Found

God is found by the hungry heart
Not by the inquiring mind
God is found by those who thirst
He quenches that thirst you will find

God is found in the longing and the aching
He is found by those who seek
He is found in the depths of the needy heart
By the humble, the lowly the meek

God is an anchor for the soul adrift
He is the roots of the tree in a storm
He is the light that shines in the midst of the dark
In winter His fire keeps us warm

He is a warm embrace to the longing heart
He is our peace when all breaks down
He is our sanity in the midst of a mad mad world
He is the head that wears the crown

Come unto me ye broken and contrite
All you who dwell in an endless night
Find in Me an open door to heaven
In me you’ll be fed and truly forgiven

Subdued By Majesty

Have you been subdued by the Majesty?
Has your head hung low in the glory?
Has your darkness been shattered by the light from up above?
Have you found yourself adrift in an ocean of love?

Oh God in heaven rend the skies and come down
May I fall to my knees with your glory all around
May the waters rise from the tears of a million saints
Let us enter into this place where no one ever faints

Brighter than the light of a thousand suns
Where time has no place and eternity’s just begun
Where every part of me is one with every part of you
And the glory falls and covers me like the morning dew

I am whole and complete, here before the mercy-seat
I am refreshed and restored where my mercies are replete
Oh God in heaven take me to this place
Where I forever look unto your face

Tears of joy and wholeness rise in me
Waters from the saints that are deeper than the sea
Only in this place do I truly belong
Forever singing heaven’s Holy song

Suddenly I am back from whence I came
But this I know, I shall never be the same
And the memory of His presence lingers on
My heart is full, tis food to dwell upon

This hunger and this thirst is part of me
Longing to be adrift once more, in that eternal sea
Oh take me to that place that is my home
Where I shall dwell eternally before thy throne

In The Midst of it All

Oh glorious fourth man in the flame
Stand with Him and never be the same
Let the world gaze on and wonder at it all
Standing firm in the furnace, standing tall

There is gold in this refiners fire
In the world you’d be covered by the muck and the mire
Yet in this place of testing and refining
There is one like the Son of God gloriously shining

Do not fear when the enemy knocks upon your door
Nor in the darkened den when you hear the lion roar
The Son of God is coming with lightning in His hand
By His power and by His grace you shall forever stand

So stand amidst the flames and know you shall not fall
Stand upon the rising storm and hear the Master call
Lift your eyes and fix your gaze on Christ and Him alone
Rise up above all earthly fears and stand before His throne

A place where every storm is stilled
A place where every saint is filled
A place that casts out every fear
A place where Jesus Christ is near.

A Fatherless Child

I was a fatherless child
A crushed and rebellious heart growing wild
Sinking deeper with abandon into the miry clay
Living for the moment, just living for the day

I could care less if I lived or if I died
No tears would fall from my heavy heart, even if I tried
A heart locked away and hidden behind iron bars
If you could see what He could see then you would see my scars

At the end of my road I was all used up and I was diminished
Then I heard these words of life ” oh Father it is finished.”
And light fell down from up above and the darkness fell away
The Lord had come to dwell in me and that is where He’d stay

My crushed and broken heart He healed
My eternal destiny was sealed
My sins were all forgiven on the day He set me free
He opened up the door of hell with His eternal key

My Lord and God He came to me and He has made me whole
He revived my heart and restored to me all that the locust stole
Now what the Lord has done for me, He can do for you
He can refresh the broken heart in you just like the morning dew

Lift up your eyes oh captive son
For your enemy is on the run
He has delivered you from slavery
He has broken chains and set you free

Children Of Liberty.

I am my Father’s son and together today we are one
I am my Father’s son and together today we are one

With then high praises of my Father
And the glory of His Son
And the power of His Holy Spirit
We shall fight till the fight is done

I am a daughter of the King
It’s to Him I raise my voice and sing
Through the power of the Spirit
And the Blood of Christ my Lord
I’ll lift my voice in victory
And then I’ll swing my sword

We are sons and daughters of blessed liberty
We shall fight and die for the one who set us free
And with the high praises of our Father
And the glory of Christ His Holy Son
We shall run this race and we shall not faint
We shall run this race till this race is done.

I Long To Be Away

I have flown in heavenly places
Yet still confined to earthly spaces
There’s a part of me that has touched the skies
And with each touch another part dies

Two forces yet only one eternal part
One love that has forever filled my heart
The glory of the crimson tide forever changing me
Lifts me up then takes me down into the glassy sea

I stand enshrined in this mortal coat
Yet the Love of God keeps me afloat
Adrift and carried by the crimson tide
The Bridegroom ever beckons home the bride

In this world but surely not a part
To another Kingdom belongs my longing heart
This other Kingdom burns inside of me
As it carries me into the glassy sea

As I approach the glory to be found
I find myself once more on Holy ground
A place where I will find eternity
A place that lies in the midst of the glassy sea

Oh longing heart with wings you must take flight
And lift me from perpetual fleshly night
And deliver me to where my Saviour reigns
A place where at my feet lies broken chains

The Silent Depths of His Wonder

I am lost in the silent depths
Of Your secret wonders
Like gazing at the universe
And the sky above that thunders

Who could plummet the depths
Of a peace beyond all measure
Who could even begin to count
What’s amassed in Your heavenly treasure

Who could soar the heavenly heights
Of the glory that’s all yours
Who could begin to guess the strength
Of your power that simply endures

I can plummet all of Your depths
And soar to the heavenly heights
I can walk by the strength of Your arm
That takes me through the darkest nights

Your heavenly treasures supply all my need
They simply never come to an end
There is peace and joy and boundless hope
From my Lord, my Master and my friend.

Healing The Broken

The beauty of the forest
Hides the broken tree
The wonder of your Blood
Covers all of me

The glory of your love
Covers all my sin
It brings a wealth of healing
And beauty deep within

You heal the brokenhearted
And set the captive free
You allowed you’re broken Body
To hang broken on a tree

You’re love is all-consuming
You wipe away all tears
It follows and it leads me
Down through all the years

No matter where I run to
I always find you there
On the highest rugged mountaintop
Or in the valley of despair

You surround me with your beauty
And impenetrable light
You walk with me throughout the day
And every darkened night

Where could I flee from your presence
Over land or hill or sea?
The wonder of our mighty God
Is that He dwells in me

Thank-you for your glory
And sharing it with me
You came and touched this captive
And forever set me free

Footsteps In The Snow

Sometimes you just want to walk into the light
And leave the shadows far behind
Tis cold when the wind is blowing
Especially when it’s blowing through your mind

When the center of my soul is cold and weary
And the snow is falling in my heart
I turn my face towards the sun
The one who saved me from the start

And with heavy feet and the weight of the world
I stumble forward for there’s no going back
One step at a time, day by day
Following footsteps in the snow, in the dark

A path before me, footsteps in the snow
One step in each footprint is the way I must go
One day at a time ever closer to thee
No longer you and I but forever we

Tis your footsteps in the snow
That I follow each day
They wind their way through the valley
Ever leading the way

Thank you for the sun
When in my heart the snow falls
Thank you for your voice
Over the wind it still calls

I’ll follow the path that you tread for me
Despite the darkness the path I can see
And even when the snow is heavily falling
Through the wind and the rain I hear my Lord calling

So your word is my lamp and your voice leads the way
And the path that you walked guides me every day
Through the wind and the rain, the snow and the storm
In a very cold world your love keeps me warm

Face to Face With The Cross.

When I have suffered great loss
I come face to face with the cross
Will I get down on my knees and pray
Or shall I turn and walk away?

Each day as I walk through this life
And face troubles and heartaches and strife
When the world has lost all its gloss
Then I come face to face with the cross

In the light of His glory and grace
As I behold His wonderful face
His fire burns up all of the dross
When I come face to face with the cross

So when you have fallen down
And it seems you’ve forsaken your crown
Come fall at His feet in remorse
Come face to face with the cross

His grace is sufficient for you
Honor Him in all that you do
And victory will come in due course
When you come face to face with the cross

When The Wind Dies Down

I love it when incessant winds die down
And all around is silence not a sound
And then I feel the sun upon my face
And I am caught up in a warm embrace

When all around me is desolate land
I feel the sun and still I stand
And even though there are dark clouds everywhere
Beyond those clouds I know the blue skies there

The wind it often chills me to the bone
Yet just one ray of sun and I am not alone
One foot in front of another is the way that I must go
I cannot deviate despite the blinding snow

Neither to the left nor to the right
Neither stormy seas nor darkened night
Can keep me from the narrow path I know
Although it may be flooded or blocked with snow

I’ll keep om walking till the very end
Because I know He is around each bend
I shall wade through waters high and mountain snow
As long as He is with me this I know

So if you cannot see your way ahead
Nor fall asleep when you lay down on your bed
Lift your eyes and see that shaft of light
That warms your face and guides you through the night

Then all the noise shall cease, no not a sound
I love it when incessant winds die down
And then I feel the sun upon my face
And I am caught up in a warm embrace.
