Our Hope ~

Hope paints a lovely picture,
of our future glory
it displays all the details
of God’s eternal story.

It’s etched in our hearts,
engraved on our minds
it understands the will of God
His plans and His designs.

Hope is our confidence,
our faithful expression
it leaves on our souls
a lasting impression.

It is everlasting peace,
a future so glorious
when with Jesus we stand
as His saint’s victorious.

So just close your eyes,
and use your imagination
let your hope in Jesus bring . . .
a glorious transformation!

Ephesians 1:18

“The eyes of your understanding
being enlightened that ye may know
what is the hope of his calling,

and what the riches of the glory
of his inheritance in the saints,”

John 8:11


Bargain With God ~

Some people think,
with God they can bargain
some think to their terms
He will gladly hearken.

But, God will not make,
with us any kind of deal
He only wants us to know . . .
what’s for us is His perfect will.

Some people say to God,
if You do this ~ I’ll do that . . .
some will haggle with Him
and take Him to the mat.

But, we cannot entice,
God to do anything . . .
for He is in control
of absolutely everything.

Some people with God,
think they can bargain
but to our haggling
He will not harken!

Ephesians 1:11

In whom also we have obtained
an inheritance, being predestinated
according to the purpose of him who
worketh all things after the counsel
of his own will:

Have Pity On Us Father ~

Have pity on us Father,
for the error of our ways
rain down on us Your mercy
and we’ll shower You with our praise.

Forgive us of our wanderings,
for going from You astray
give us Your compassion
and our gratefulness to you we’ll display.

Have pity on us Father,
for we have seen the True Light
have favor on our souls
and we’ll laud You with all our might.

Forgive us of our every sin,
for all the wrongs we’ve done
cover us with Your loving grace
and our gratitude we’ll show to Your Son.

Have pity on us Father,
let us to You draw near
have empathy for our life’s . . .
and we’ll praise You with holy fear!

God, My Reason ~

God, my Reason,
my Logic, my Wisdom
Your Word is my . . .
life support system.

For it’s how to obtain,
a Christ like mind
so the narrow way
I’ll continue to find.

God, my Guide,
my Leader, my Mentor
Your Word warns me
of the danger to look for.

For it fills my thoughts,
with Your perspective
on how not to become
one of satan’s captives.

God, my Wisdom,
my Truth, my Light
Your Word keeps
my faith upright!

Ecclesiastes 7:25

I applied mine heart to know,

1 Timothy 2:1


It’s Easy To Say ~

It’s easy for people to say,
give Jesus your every care
it’s easy for them to relay
I’ll say for you a daily prayer.

But, when they leave,
they sometimes forget
to pass on to God
what has you so upset.

It’s easy for people to say,
I will pray for you . . .
but, isn’t always something
they go off and really do.

For they get distracted,
with the busyness of life
and soon forget to pray
for your daily strife.

It’s easy for people to say,
they will pray for you. . .
so, if these words you speak
make sure you go and do!

~~~~~~~~~~

1 Timothy 2:1

I exhort therefore, that,
first of all, supplications,
prayers, intercessions,
and giving of thanks,
be made for all men;

Isaiah 65:24


Someone To Talk To ~

Whenever I want to talk,
I have me a loyal Friend
He is someone always . . .
on whom I can depend.

Our conversations are,
exciting and uplifting
He always lets me know
if from Him I’m drifting.

We discuss many things,
be at night or in the day
He is always ready . . .
to hear what I’ve to say.

I can tell Him anything,
there is no holding back
He encourages me
when faith in Him I lack.

I have me a special Friend,
with whom I can always talk
whenever I need advice . . .
I just go with Jesus for a walk!

Philippians 3:20

Romans 8:37-39


Born To Conquer ~

Born to grow,
mature and ripen
born so my faith
in Jesus can deepen.

Born to know,
understand and believe
born so my strength
in God I’d receive.

Born to think,
recognize and detect
born so my life
Jesus would reflect.

Born to tell apart,
to discern and define
born so I would follow
God’s divine design.

Born to grow,
to divide and conquer
born to prove to satan . . .
He that’s in me is stronger!

~~~~~~~

Colossians 1:9-10

For this cause we also,
since the day we heard it,
do not cease to pray for you,
and to desire that ye might
be filled with the knowledge
of his will in all wisdom
and spiritual understanding;

God, My Faith ~

God, my Faith,
my Founder, my Finisher
Your love for me
to my soul ministers.

For the more about You,
I come to learn and know
the more my trust continues
in You to upwards grow.

God, my faith,
my Trustor, my Petitioner
thank You for being
hope’s only distributor.

Eternal life is mine,
now that in me You live
as more of myself to You
I wholeheartedly give.

God, my Faith,
my Creator, my Foundation
Your mercy and grace
is my only salvation!

Galatians 2:20

I am crucified with Christ:
nevertheless I live;
yet not I, but Christ liveth in me:
and the life which I now live
in the flesh I live by the faith
of the Son of God, who loved me,
and gave himself for me.

John 14:15


Born Into Rebellion ~

Born into rebellion,
rotten to the core
too evil to hear . . .
the knock on the door.

Rioting and destroying,
burning and stealing
too wicked to see . . .
the need for healing.

Prideful and lustful,
immoral and impure
too depraved to heed . . .
the call of a Savior.

Angry and destructive,
factious and divisive
too caught up being . . .
one of satan’s devices.

Born into rebellion,
bad to the bone
too rebellious to not . . .
cast the first stone!

~~~~~~~~

Galatians 5:19-21

Now the works of the flesh are manifest,
which are these; Adultery, fornication,
uncleanness, lasciviousness,

Idolatry, witchcraft, hatred,
variance, emulations, wrath,
strife, seditions, heresies,

Envyings, murders, drunkenness,
revellings, and such like:
of the which I tell you before,
as I have also told you in time past,
that they which do such things
shall not inherit the kingdom of God.

God, My Courage~

God, my Courage,
my Bravery, my Grit
Your love compels me
not to give up or quit.

You give me fortitude,
to fight the good fight
all my battles fought
are won in Your might.

God, my Courage,
my Boldness, my Mettle
You turn my nerves
into hard, steely metal.

Your Word is my Armor,
faith is my shield
taking me each day
out into the battle field.

God my Courage,
my Fortress, my Stockade
as long as You go with me . . .
I’m not afraid or dismayed!

Joshua 1:9

Have not I commanded thee?
Be strong and of a good courage;
be not afraid, neither be thou
dismayed: for the Lord thy God
is with thee whithersoever
thou goest.
