Hope and Compassion

Hope and compassion, intertwined for good,
Are inseparable from God’s holy love.
When you have hope, discover God’s love,
When you’re compassionate, find His peace.
Hope, compassion, and love: all will form
A three-part braid, tied with the bow of peace.

He Created Stars

He who counts the stars, and calls them by name
Is He who proclaims that I am His child.
He who created worlds in their glory
Also created me, in His image.

Yes, Lord, it is You who created my soul,
You live within me, and guide all my ways.
I’ll listen to You, and do as You ask;
I’ll honor Your name, worship You only.

As You created and named all the stars,
You have created, and named every child.
I must remember to love every one
’Cause each one I meet is Your child, O Lord.

At my very best, it’s sometimes so hard,
Yet, still, I am called to love anyway.
Because I am Yours, I’ll promise to try;
And I know You’re with me, because I’m Yours.

God’s Acceptance

God’s acceptance of you
Is not based on your “goodness”
You are always in God’s own heart,
For God has said you are His delight!

You cannot become “good”
Without God’s gift of His grace.
His grace is always sufficient
For everyone, including for you.

God loves each, equally,
And He will delight in each.
Far beyond merely “acceptance,”
God loves you. He’s proved it through Jesus!
