I Just Want To Be Closer

My heart aches for the Beautiful Land of Cherry Trees...

All Good Things Come from God

If the Lord doesn't build the house,
the builders are working for nothing.
If the Lord doesn't guard the city,
the guards are watching for nothing. Psalm 127:1

A Prayer of Someone Far from Home


When I was in trouble, I called to the Lord,
and he answered me.
Lord, save me from liars
and from those who plan evil.

You who plan evil, what will God do to you?
How will he punish you?
He will punish you with the sharp arrows of a warrior
and with burning coals of wood.

How terrible it is for me to live in the land of Meshech,
to live among the people of Kedar.
I have lived too long
with people who hate peace.
When I talk peace,
they want war.

The Lord Guards His People


I look up to the hills,
but where does my help come from?
My help comes from the Lord,
who made heaven and earth.

He will not let you be defeated.
He who guards you never sleeps.
He who guards Israel
never rests or sleeps.
The Lord guards you.
The Lord is the shade that protects you from the sun.
The sun cannot hurt you during the day,
and the moon cannot hurt you at night.
The Lord will protect you from all dangers;
he will guard your life.
The Lord will guard you as you come and go,
both now and forever.

Pray for the PEACE of Jerusalem

Psalm 122

I was happy when they said to me,
"Let's go to the Temple of the Lord."
Jerusalem, we are standing
at your gates.

Jerusalem is built as a city
with the buildings close together.
The tribes go up there,
the tribes who belong to the Lord.
It is the rule in Israel
to praise the Lord at Jerusalem.
There the descendants of David
set their thrones to judge the people.

There will be storms in life that we can't outrun. Just as Jesus didn't run from the cross, He won't run from us in those storms. Storms are difficult, frightening even; and we may want to run, but in doing so, we don't want to run from our Salvation. There is love in the storm, peace and hope. Isaiah 43:2


Looking for a color in a shade of gray
Looking for a love in a drop of rain
Trying to find change in the old mundane
Everything I do just feels the same
Spending my life out in the desert
Been gone so long feels like forever

I just want to be even closer to you
I just want to be even closer
I am yours, You can have all of me, anything, everything
I just want to be even closer

A day without you is a thousand years
A day without you is a million tears
Tell me why do I run when I am in fear
Why do I run when you are so near
Spending my life out in the weather
Been gone so long and I need some shelter

Where ever you go
Where ever you are
I just want to be there with you
