Poetic Inspirations and Practical Applications for Blissful Living

Each Day

Each Day More Like You, Lord


(Send as an Inspirational Christian Lighthouse e-card!)

Each day, each passing day

May I be closer ever still

Nearer to Your Heart, Lord

And more aligned with Your Will


Each hour, each passing hour

May I find myself with You

Loving You ever deeper

And embracing Your love true


Each moment, each minute

May I find myself in prayer

Living all my life for You

And bringing You every care


Each thought, my every thought

May it be of You and Your love

May all my thoughts please You

And be fixed on Heaven Above


Each word, my every word

May it speak joyfully about You

May my words spread the Gospel

Sharing only what is pure and true


Each beat, each heart beat

May it be in rhythm with Your song

May my heart be one with Yours

For with you, Lord, I do belong


Each step, every moving step

May it be along your holy Way

May the steps of my journey lead

Closer to You, yes, this I pray


Each prayer, every prayer

May it be ever more sweet

May it please Your precious ears

As my heart and Yours do meet


Each smile, my every smile

May it reflect Your love and joy

May my smiles uplift those around

Each man, woman, girl and boy


Yes, each day, each passing day

May I be closer ever still

Nearer to Your Heart, Lord

And more aligned with Your Will

    Thank you, Dearest Caroline!

    Truly to live in God’s Divine Will is to be in union with Him.

    Thank you for the gentle reminder through your poetry to keep our eyes focused on His desires!

    How precious are the feet that spread the Gospel (and the mouths that speak His Truth!)

      AMEN! Thank you so much for your lovely comment!

      Yes, to be one with Christ is to be one with His Divine Will.

      May we live each day, each hour, each moment, aligned with Him, with His commands, with His Mission…
      and sharing His sacred, sweet Gospel to ALL!

      Much Love in Christ…

    Such yearning for our Creator moment to moment…without ceasing. How quickly we can choose another way…as I read each line I thought this is a keeper and wonderful reminder for every day!

      Tom, thank you so very much! How I appreciate your beautiful poetic comment!
      Yes, how easy it is choose another way, rather than seeking our Lord fully each day.
      I am deeply grateful for your encouragement, your support….
      and your commitment to our dear and precious LORD!

    What lovely poetry!
    A needed reminder that He is always there, that my steps can be with His, if only I decide to walk alongside. I struggle with that a lot with my sometimes independent and fearful spirit, and wrote about it again today at my blog.

    Thank you for your encouragement to align with Him.

      Kim, thank you so very much!

      Your sweet and humble spirit blesses my heart!

      You have humility combined with hunger for God:
      such a powerful combination!

      I look forward to reading your blog post today.
      Your writing captivates and motivates!

      God bless you richly, sweet sister in Christ!

    My sweet kindred spirit :0)

    How lovely to be reminded to give Him our every day, every hour, every moment, every thought (that one’s tough sometimes!), every word (uh huh! that one too), our every step (“I will give you every place where you set your foot.”), our every prayer.

    Thank you. No matter what our surroundings or circumstance (mine is having paid a week’s salary to fix the car and spending an hour helping a toddler go to sleep), we can set our minds to victory. And keep it set. Always being thankful for every moment we are given. Much love to you and yours!
