My mind mingled with the dos and dont's
My heart longing to grasp all it wants
My God the true love of my life
My lover is not a lover of mine
The question of which way to go
Looms as a day in the empty desert
Yes, I am beneath my destination

My eyes continue my search
My heart knows that the answers are there
My feet are tired of walking, treading, moving
My Soul... still going even without the rest of me
So I am dragged along in the dirt
But I never complain

Memories of happy times I feel lost to me
Beacon to visit me here
I welcome even their distant glimpse
For today my joy can not be found
There is no one, no place, no sound
I am a dirty beast now
No one knows that someone lives
Beneath this dirt covering me
Still I go

In silence now
The days only fagments of life
They are not a part of my existance'
I fall no more
the ground covers me
I am safe from falling now
Below there is dirt and there is dirt above
I only miss the light of the sun upon my face
But here I am safe from falling any more

Safety is the most boring and lifeless of all
I fall no more.


My All and All

by

Debbie Hobbs

Lord, be my sheperd
And my sweet sounding song
Bless my Soul
That I will do no wrong
Lord I need you
To be my all and all
Lord be my all and all

Lord bless my heart
That I feel nothing wrong
Bless my Soul so that
I will carry on
All I need is for you
To be my all and all
Lord be my all and all

There are no silent places
In my life
Yet I am empty and void
Fill me Lord
Fill me up
With your Spirit

Lord speak to me
all through my day
In my sleep
Rule my way
Lord I need you
To be my all and all
Lord be my all and all

Because you Love me

by

Debbie Hobbs

Here I am Lord
In our own special place
And I want to render you
Worship and praise

Here are my hands Lord
Raised so very high
I sure want to lift you up
And your name glorify
Just because I Love You

So many times I've stumbled
I fell flat on my face
But You did'nt give me up
You sent your saving Grace

While other were laughing
and talking behind my back
You came and picked me up
You brought me right back
You came because You Love me

Now Who can find
A better friend than mine
Faithful, watchful and True
Your is always there
You always care
No matter what I'm going through

You came because You Love Me
You came because You Love Me

Because You love me

Now, who can find
a better friend than mine
Strong, kind and true
He is always there
He always cares
No matter what I'm going through
He came, because He loves me
He came, because He loves me
Because of Jesus

Cool, I am not
though I am never tossed
Fashionable, I think not
Comfortable is my shot

Beautiful, I will never get
I will never try
Happy is a thought
with plenty reasons to cry

Make my drink a sweet one
No swirving world for me
In my hair add only curls
No barbs, heights, or feats

I know they scuff a little
They think I don't care
I am just me
Trying hard not to be you

Becoming You

by

Debbie Hobbs

In time I realize
My failures are in love
I am grateful for all you are
Help me rise above

Work it in me to both will and do
All that you require
In love and in truth

Help me get closer
Waisting no time
Growing more completely
Becoming your mind

As I embrass and become
The me that is you
Let me keep nothing back
No memories old or new

You are the me
I long to be
Lost in you
Until no me can be seen

You Gave

by

Debbie Hobbs

I give praise and thanks to You
For all You allow and do
I bow before You taken
Undeserving of Your love

Without You I dare not live
In Your presence I am content
As Your peace swallows me whole
There is nothing I can give
Which You did not first give
Me to hold

My praise and the raising of my hands
My song of praise
Is formed by You

My words of praise and worship
Are given by You
I give them back
With a grateful heart

All that I have is Yours
For I am Yours
I will not go free
Lest there remain
No reason for me

But, I am here
Strong, Loving, Trusting and
Free because you gave to me

Yesterday I thought I love most
Now you’ve shown other reasons
to add to the mountain of reasons
I already have for loving you

How is this possible I ask
how much more can I bare
soothing and healing me
You embrace and free
I am in awe of you
God Almighty

Such great adventures
Whose ends are tailored by you
Ringing my emotion
Setting me free
I have no complaint
You are Lord
I am silenced except to say
I Love you God Almighty

Master's Plan

by

Debbie Hobbs

Here in a silent place
They don't understand
I have no reason for worry
I am in your plan

Seems time is running out
I shout my joy to you
I am not afraid
I am with you

Here in our silent place
Many things touch me
I am not afraid
You have the plan I see

No longings to rush me
No loses to sadden me
I keep remembering our victories
Safe in your plan for me

Lord you took my hand as a child
You introduced yourself to me
I know you as father
You care for me

I rest in our silent place
Each day is new
Sometimes I hurt
You see me through

I worked hard today
I loved your presence there
You talked to me
I did not have a care

I don't understand it
But I am glade to be in it
Your plan for me
In it I am free
