Poems To ABBA

Updated: 3 days ago

In September of 2019 I was thrown head first into God’s Refiner Fire. Not only was it the first and only time I’ve experienced this, I also had no idea what it even was. It just so happened that I few weeks in I found where Peter talked about it in the New Testament and knew instantly that was where I was. It was then I started keeping a journal and would soon be led to write poetry. Please know I’m not a writer or poet. I have been led tho to share some here and I will only to be obedient. If nothing else I hope they might help who ever reads them to know that we all struggle for acceptance and long to know that God sees and hears our cries.


 

The Midnight Hour


In The Stillness Of The Midnight Hour

While All The Worlds Asleep

You Join Me In My Secret Place

To Fill My Heart With Peace


No Matter How Dark The Day

Or How Long The Storm Did Rail

Your Love Falls Down Around Me

As Your Spirit Lingers There


You Dry My Tears With Your Gentle Breath

And Your Glory Shines So Bright

You Tell Me All Will Be Ok

And There’s Rest For Me Tonight


And As I Lay Upon My Bed

You Sit So Close To Me

Then You Sing Your Lullabies

As I Quietly Fall To Sleep

Author Leslie Renee Malone

 

I Want To Be The Strong Woman Of God

You Want Me To Be

One That Doesn’t Let Doubt

Reign Over Me


One That Walks With Her Head Held High

So When People See Her They Know They

See A Child Of The Upmost High


One Who’s Heart Is As Pure As Gold

Showing Love And Compassion

Wherever She Goes


One That Can Drop Anything That She Holds

To Pray For A Friend Or Even A Foe


One Who Will Share Whatever She’s Got

Who Doesn’t Shrink Back When Cost Is A Thought


One With A Passion For Loving Her God

Showing Him He’s Never Forgotten

Always First In Her Life


So Mold Me And Make Me

Please Shape Me Like Her

Like A Beautiful Bride

To Forever Be Yours

Author Leslie Renee Malone


 

Gods Poets

You Made Us Your Poets

And Lover’s Of Souls

Filled With Compassion

Our Hearts That You Hold

You Gave Us A Light

To Shine Bright Towards You

To Show All Your Love

That Could Make All Things New

Our Pen Is Our Sword

And Our Hearts On Our Sleeve

We’re Marching Toward Zion

To Live With Our King

Jesus Forever The Master of Peace

Author Leslie Renee Malone


 

Sitting Here Just Thinking Of

The Day You Came With Your Tender Love

Oh What Sorrow I Was In

The Deepest Pit Of My Sin


You Came In Like A Gentle Breeze

Waves Of Love Washed Over Me

In And Out Like The Tide

Cleansing Me From Side To Side


Storms Did Rage And I Dared To Think

Upon Each One I Would Surly Sink

To The Bottom With No Return

But Still You Saved With Your Strong Arm


Days I Lay Upon My Bed

Praying “God I Feel Such Dread”

Then You’d Whisper In My Ear

“Get Up Child, It’s Only Fear”


Fear Not I Tell You So Many Times

Run To Me For A Place To Hide

I Am Waiting To Pull You In

To My Arms Where Healing Begins

Author Leslie Renee’ Malone



 

Cry’s To My Savior


I‘m So Tired Of Hurting

So Tired Of This Pain

Jesus Please Jesus

Help Me I Pray


Break Down These Walls

that I Felt I Must Build Up

Saving My Life Was My Only Thought


I Had Not Learned On You To Depend

I Thought I was Too Lost

In My Shame And My Sin


So Bruised And Broken

By Their Hateful Words

So Isolated Due To Their Lack Of Love


I Know That They Did The Best That They Could

Because Like Me It Was Darkness They Grew Up In

With Only A Small Hope Within


Please Search My Heart

Find Where it’s Broke

Tenderly Mend It And

Dress It With Love


Help Me To Find You

And Give You My Heart

So I Can Walk Within Your Beautiful Light

Author Leslie Renee’ Malone



 

Someone’s shooting a Gun outside

Our worlds gone mad

In you I hide

I don’t feel their angst,

their rage or fear

I’m OK with you right here


You hold me close

whispering my name

Saying “Don’t look,

it’s still the same”

You say “Be happy” feel secure

You belong to me now

in that be sure


You tell me look up

at your deep blue sky

past the Sun and Stars

to the heavens on high

Rejoice and dance,

praise your name,

You’re with me in the storm

my shelter from the rain


You say "stick around child

I’m going to use you

to convince this world

there's no need to feel blue

Remind them of my

unconditional love

To just repent and pray

to me up above

I’ll come running to them

as I did you

To make their Grey skies

the brightest blue

To show them the mysteries

of me above

The beginning where it started

This thing called love

When they put me first

above all else

Instead of down low

or up on a shelf


I’ll teach them how

you’re all just here

For the test, to learn

different lessons

That you hoped to be best

From Glory to Glory they will learn

What that means

How to see around what this evil

world schemes

To focus on me and nothing else

So I can come lead them to victory

And everything that it foretells.

Dream Again

You pulled me from prison

you opened the latch

You held out your hand

strongholds no longer attached

You mended my heart

you vanquished my sin

You said " Now beloved

this is where we begin"

You took your strong hands and reshaped my mind

told me to leave all my worries behind

You said to look up

keep my eyes just on you

Nothing on earth beats the view beside you

You planted me firm on your solid rock

You showed me your vision

your plan from the start

You taught me to love

through untethered eyes

To never give up

regardless of sight

To always believe in things not yet seen

to open my heart and to once again dream.

Author Leslie Renee'

 

No matter what tomorrow may bring

I'm standing today on your promises deemed

Each day I look forward to the new mystery

That points me to you and all that that means


I'll count it all joy

There can be no more doubt

That you alone decide when I come in and go out

I'll take time to listen to your every word

Knowing their life and that matters for sure


Thanks for your spirit

That guides me each day

Showing me when to step out in faith.

Author Leslie Renee'

 


You saw me by the river

You felt my broken heart

You heard me cry "forgive me Father

please send your fiery spark"

I need to know you see me

please show me that you're here

Standing right beside me

in my moment of despair


I took your love for granted

I let the whole world rule me

Please can you forgive me

place me back in your reach ?


Your love is so amazing

your Grace beyond compare

For me you sent a Savior

my salvation you meant to spare.

Author Leslie Renee'




 

You Came Into My Self Made Cell And Spoke Your Truth To Me


I Thought That I Was To Far Gone

No Light Was There To See


Battle Weary, Scarred and Torn

No Strength Inside Remained


Until The Day I Heard You Gently Say My Name

Leslie Child, Lift Up Your Face And Wipe Those Tears Away


There Is No Sin I Can’t Erase

If You Desire To Change


Throw Off Those Chains And Unbelief

All Those Worldly Lies

Take My Hand And I Will Teach You

How To Consistently Abide

In The Shadow of My Wings

Where Peace And Love Reside


I Have Come To Give You Rest, Hope and A New Life

Take Your Thoughts Off Of This World

Set Them Instead On Me Up High


Open Up My Word, Let It Discern Your Heart

So I Can Go To Work Cleansing All Your Soiled Parts


Remember My Commandments

To Love Me With All Your Heart

To Love And Help Your Neighbor

For They Are Like You Are


Weary And Heavy Laden

Burdens Too Big To Bear

Longing For Compassion

And Someone Who Truly Cares


Lengthen Out Your Wic

Burn Your Light So Bright

I‘ve Placed You In This World

To Help Me Make It Right


Tell Them How I Love Them

So Much I Gave My Life

How I Fashioned Them In Heaven

And Gifted Them With Life

How They All Must Come Together

For There’s Only One True Light


The Goal Is Bring Down Heaven

Where Peace And Love Reside

Author Leslie Renee’

 

“Thoughts”


Like A Million Tiny Butterflies

Floating Through My Mind

I Try So Hard To Capture One

And Place It Here On Line


Thoughts Of All Your Glorious Ways

That I Have Come To Know

Your Caring, Loving Gentleness And Attention You Do Show


Your Love Like Water Flows Over Me

It Drenches Deep Down Into My Soul

Uncovering The Brokenness That Lies Beneath

That Only You Could Know


The Torment That Rushes In

When Darkness Overtakes

Your Blaring Light Splits The Night

As Darkness Scatters Far Away


My Childlike Cries, “Oh Abba Please

Rescue Me From This”

Like A Soldiers Battlecry Your Grace Comes Charging In


A Anchor You Are To My Soul On Life’s Long Stormy Course

Your Arms Of Warmth I shelter In

Your Glory My Reward.

Leslie Renee’

 

God’s Children


The World Calls Us Damaged

Broken Beyond Repair

Jesus Calls Us Chosen

Fierce Unwavering Mercy We Must Share


The World Calls Us Noisy, Forward And Unlearned

Our Father Says We’re Special, Beautiful and Beloved


The World Says We Are Poor

For Mansions We Do Not Own

Yahweh Says We’re Wealthy

For Heaven Is Our Home


The World It Does Not Love Us

Says We are Unworthy and Alone

Abba Says We’re His

Magnificent And Strong


The World Says We Are Crazy To Believe In Things Unseen

Jesus Says We are Peculiar

And We Have All Been Redeemed


Leslie Renee’


 

A Song For Him


To Write A Song He’s Never Heard

To Grasp Those Floating Mental Words

Pull Them Down And Out My Pen

Onto The Page A Song Begins


To Make Them Form A Melody

That One Day All The World Might Sing

To Give Life To My Greatest Dream

To Shine Forth My True Creative Being


With Pure Emotions Stir A Heart

To Bring About Or Ignite A Spark

Words That Have Such Healing Power

To Mend Not Break A Fragile Flower


To Add A Note That Cancels Tears

Hit A Beat That Soothes Not Seers

Causing Pain To Disappear

Replaced With Joy That Commandeers.

Leslie Renee’



 

My Heart Celebrates What You’ve Done For Me

It Beats From The Mercy Rained Down From Thee

You Made Me To Be A Rose For Your Vase

Beautifully Tattered Salvaged With Grace


Some Petals Strong, Vibrant And True

Others Worn From Life’s Battles

Painfully Bruised

Once I Grew Strong In A Beautiful Bush

Surrounded By Many And Easily Pushed

Down By Their Weight Their Greed and Their Lust

Their Constant Desire To Strangle Pure Love


Until that Sweet Day Your Sheers Found My Stem

So Gently You Gave Me A Cut Meant To Mend


A Beautiful Vase You Made It My Home

On Your Window Pane You Placed Me Alone

Through Sunshine And Rain You Tend To My Needs

With Compassion And Love

You Set This Rose Free


Leslie Renee’


 

You did it! You did it again!

Lifted me up with your mighty right hand.


You saw where I fell, you saw that first tear,

You said “Oh no, not today Dear”,

“Get up,get out, outside in the world, don’t you know child, that’s what its there for?”


So I listened, got up and outside I went, it didn’t take long till you had me convinced

The birds were all singing, flying way up above,

The tree branches swaying, conveying your love


Your beautiful garden right there in the middle, all full of green veggies, all fit as a fiddle.

I’ve never seen so much green in all my life, the beauty the splendor cut deep as a knife.


I looked at it all, I drank it all in

I knew I could start my day over again


Thank you dear Lord for the gifts that you give, I’ll not take them for granted as long as I live.

Author Leslie Renee Malone

 

Jesus

Let Me Show You How I Love You

Let Me Help You Understand


Let Me Build For You A Fortress

Where You Can Place Your Heart Within


I Will Scale The Tallest Mountains

Holding Onto You

Together We Will Soar Over Oceans Blue


Storm Clouds We Will Scatter

Winds We Will Calm

Our Love Will Build A Shelter

Joy Will Be Our Home


Peace Will Be Our Motto

Laughter Will Fill Our Tongues

For You Are My Forever

You I Will Call My Home

Author Leslie Renee Malone


 

A Thousand Times I’ve Questioned Why

A Million Tears It Seems I’ve Cried

A Life So Full Of Hurt And Pain

Mental Anguish I Can’t Explain


But Still You Run In After Me

To My Rescue Far Or Deep

Where I Am It Matters Not

When I Cry You Show Up


First You Fill Me With Your Peace

Then Your Mercy You Release

Gentle Loving Arms Are Next

Warm Embrace Follows That


Then You Whisper In My Ear

“Now Now My Child No Need To Fear”

Come And Tell Me Where It Hurts

So My Love Can Go To Work


I Will Wash You White As Snow

Plant You Where There’s Room To Grow

Into The Place I Planned For You

Where You Can Start Afresh And New

Author Leslie Renee Malone


 

Since Jesus Came


Oh The Joy That Floods My Soul

You Changed My Bronze To The Purest Gold

The Process Tho It Was Long And Hard

Came To Give Me A Brand New Start


The Sun Shines Brighter Than Yesterday

Since You Wiped My Tears Away

Tomorrow Waits And That’s Ok

Im Living Now In Today


Moment By Moment I Walk With You

Your Voice So Softly Leads Me Through

Life’s Curves and Straights

Look The Same

I’m Reborn Since Jesus Came!


Author Leslie Renee Malone

 

Delight!

Delight In The Lord

His Joy Never Ends

No Matter What’s Happening

There’s Peace Found There In Him


Delight In The Earth

He Made It For Such

He Formed It He Fashioned It

In His Perfect Love


Delight In The Trials And Sufferings Too

Knowing It Means He’s Working

On You


Delight In Your Neighbor. Your Brother And Friend

He Uses Them All To Build Us Up

From Within


In Delight Is No Fear, No Worry, No Angst

If God Truly Be For Us

He’s Left Nothing To Fate


Author Leslie Renee Malone


 

Letting Go


I’m Letting Go Of Depression

Letting Go Of This Angst

I’m So Tired Of This Storm

So Tired Of This Pain


I’m Searching For Blue Skies

Above The Storm Clouds

I’m Rising Above Letting

Fade All My Doubts


I Had To Go Home

To Remember Myself

To Find You Dear Jesus

To Ask You For Help


I Needed Your Cleansing

Your Fuller’s Soap

To Wash Away Shame, Guilt

And Self Loathing


I Didn’t Realize It Would Take

You So Long

To Clean

All The Dross With

The Fire You Were Stoking So Strong


The Pain It Was Dreadful

But You Never Gave Up

You Molded and Melded

Till Love Had To Rise Up


You Not Only Chased Me

And Stood By My Side

You Gently Reminded

You’d Been Here The Whole Time


Watching And Waiting

Planning My Steps

Carrying My Burdens

When I Thought You Had Left


Painting Your Words And Art in the Sky

Making Sure I Would See It

As I Drove By


Author Leslie Renee Malone



 


Slowly Dawn Breaks Through The Sky

Morning Draws So Swiftly Nigh

I Think Of You And Can’t Help But Smile

For You Are The Apple Of My Eye


You Came When I Could Not Pretend

That Life Held Hope For Me Again


You Picked Me Up From That Sad Place

Wiped All My Depression Far Away

Love And Mercy You Then Gave Place


Jesus, Jesus

My Dearest Friend

My Rock of Salvation

My Begin and End

Redeemer, Warrior,

Sword and Shield

My Love Forever

And Ever More


Author Leslie Renee Malone



 

Heart Cries


My Heart Cries Out So Loudly

For Something I’ve Never Known

A Hunger That Lies Within Me

For A Thing That Some Call “Home”


For A Family That Truly Loves Me

That Thinks I Hung The Moon

That Finds More Than Faults Within Me

That Their Hearts Soar When I’m In The Room


One That Tells All They Love Me

That Would Fight A Bear For Me

That Puts Only God Above Me

When Seeing Me Happy It Brings Them Peace


I’ve Tried So Hard To Be What They’ve

All Required Of Me

Yet Still Their Heads Shake And

They Care Not Nor Do Me They See


Leslie Malone

Oh how GOD Loves Us! I have to once again shout it from the rooftops how God has changed my life! I can’t contain it! I wish I had the ability to take every single person I see and grab them by the ha
