There Is None Like You – Lord – Oh – I Said that Before – I’ll Say It Again – Lord – There Is None Like You –

Bluford Walkway

I was a child when You first revealed Yourself – Lord –
Young and helpless – alone –
Unseen but always with me –
As I grew – always You
Were watching
Over me –

More aware of You I became – Jesus –
As the years came and went –
I rested in You – alone –
As life grew more complex
More intense –
And You –

Your face seemed hidden from me – Lord –
Troubles like a forest blinded
The eyes of my heart and mind –
But rays of light shone through –
Weary – I’d
Rest in You –

The light of Your countenance made me bold – Jesus –
Your love like a warm blanket
Quieted my alarm – saved
Me from all harm –
Gratefully I’d
Rest in You –

Learning day by day and year after year – Lord –
When I labored to achieve happiness –
You rested – but when I
Trusted You – I freely received
my heart’s
Request –

Yet – like a bird flies into a window glass – Lord –
I become confused by false indication –
Forgetting all You’ve taught me –
I return to my old way of thinking –
I must –
I must –

Not I must – You did at the cross – You did –
You took away the curse – You –
You alone – You labored
So I might rest –
I rest –
In You –

When I rest – You work – You change the world
For me – You listen to my
Every whispered prayer –
You show me again there
is none
like You –

I’ll say it again – Lord –
There is none like You –

Galatians 3:9-14 – The Bible (KJV) – So then they which be of faith are blessed with faithful Abraham. For as many as are of the works of the law are under the curse: for it is written, Cursed is every one that continueth not in all things which are written in the book of the law to do them. But that no man is justified by the law in the sight of God, it is evident: for, The just shall live by faith. And the law is not of faith: but, The man that doeth them shall live in them. Christ hath redeemed us from the curse of the law, being made a curse for us: for it is written, Cursed is every one that hangeth on a tree: That the blessing of Abraham might come on the Gentiles through Jesus Christ; that we might receive the promise of the Spirit through faith.

    • God loves you. Jesus is the way, the truth, and the life. He has met every need I’ve had, and He loves you and the entire world. The Bible says in the Book of John, verse 3:15: For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believes in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. Blessings to you…
