Living Proof Ministries

From the lovely lamp lights,
To the towering trees,
Our visit to the grounds of Living Proof Ministries,
Proved a calm and peaceful place to be.
A ministry firmly founded upon The Rock,
Servant hearts knit together like birds of a flock.
As I reflect, God bids, "Come to Me and sit a while,
As sweet Siestas gather from across the miles.
Dear one, as you look up toward My eyes,
You'll find Me, the gold, the green, The Prize.
So, as along the pilgrim path you go,
To My Word and My Spirit, cling and grow.
I will give you light for the very next step,
Filled with My Spirit, you'll find happiness, joy and pep.
I am The God who does new things.
Creation around Me gloriously sings.
You may feel the path is so different, so varied,
And the obstacles looming so very great.
Come on in, I bid, open the gate
Time is ripe. I'm ready for you, don't hesitate.
As you see the seasons of life change,
I know your path, the now, the near, and the long range.
Darlin' bend your knee in prayer and total submission to Me,
Then, the so much more of Me, you will experience and see."


With thanksgiving to talented Nesha for graciously sharing the last picture.

So glad you included the last picture. I wasn't there in person, but I have prayed countless times for this ministry.

I think you captured the heart of a lot of women when you took that picture.

Lora, I must say how I love your heart for the Lord. I too am a very visual person, and musical. When I see things they just touch my heart. This post is absolutely beautiful. Love the poetry. God surely granted you the gift of the Arts. Thanks for sharing it. I will have to make you one of my regular posts to follow. I thank the Lord for leading me to it.

Your Siesta in Christ, Lori

We did not get to visit the grounds of LPM but the thought crossed my mind.
Your post makes me feel like I was there too.

We briefly visited the LPM office too and took just a couple of shots. Makes me wish now that we had walked around a bit.

Lovely & you share so beautifully with your poetic words.
