Line upon line,
read your Bible every day
Word upon Word
and from the truth you’ll not stray.

Precept upon precept,
consider each and every one
concept upon concept
and to God’s ways you’ll be won.

Word upon Word,
observe all of God’s laws
line upon line
and they’ll reveal your flaws.

Concept upon concept,
search for God every day
precept upon precept
and He will show you the way.

Line upon line,
let God’s instructions fill your mind
concept upon concept
and His wisdom you will find.

Everyday read the Word,
a little here, a little there
and to all of Jesus’ teachings
you will be made aware!

Isaiah 28:10

For precept must be upon precept,
precept upon precept; line upon line,
line upon line; here a little, and there a little:

Speak To Me Lord Jesus ~

Speak to me Lord Jesus,
make Yourself known
so that Your plans
can to me be shown.

Tell me what to do,
prepare for me the way
I promise I will listen
to what You have to say.

Speak to me Lord Jesus,
while I am staying still
let me know what is
for me Your perfect will.

Show me the road,
You’d have me to take
I promise I’ll follow it
for Your name’s sake.

Speak to me Lord Jesus,
I am ready to hear . . .
Your Word’s of hope
for me loud and clear!

A Life Devoted ~

A life devoted,
a life reflective
is a life under
God’s directive.

For it finds pleasure,
in doing His will
as it knows to wait
and to be still.

A life delighted,
a life captivated
is a life to God
that is concentrated.

For it meditates,
day in and day out
rids itself daily
of worry and doubt.

A lived devoted,
a life delighted
is a life that is
spiritual sighted!

~~~~~~~~

Psalm 1:2

But his delight is in the law
of the Lord; and in his law
doth he meditate day and night.

The Best Place To Go ~

Some people look to family,
for their encouragement
some seek their pastors
for spiritual nourishment.

Some people turn to books,
offering them self-care
some search their computer
for their health and welfare.

But, I have found for me,
the best place I can go
is to my Bible daily
where living waters flow.

For between the pages,
there I find my best friend
for Jesus promised me
He’d be there til the end.

Some people turn to people,
some turn to other things
but, my Bible pages I turn
for the peace I know it brings!

~~~~~~~~

John 14:27

Peace I leave with you,
my peace I give unto you:
not as the world giveth,
give I unto you. Let not
your heart be troubled,
neither let it be afraid.

God’s Wise Ways ~

God’s ways are wise,
they’re full of wisdom
for they go against
the world’s system.

They lead and guide,
to the righteous way
not the one followed
so widely today.

God’s ways are holy,
they are profound
nothing about them
are found unsound.

For they are rich,
thoughtful and deep
bringing mercy and hope
when His truths we keep.

God’s ways are wise,
for He has a plan
redemptive and perfect
for all of man!

~~~~~~~~

Isaiah 55:8

For my thoughts are
not your thoughts,
neither are your ways
my ways, saith the Lord.

Romans 11:33

O the depth of the riches both
of the wisdom and knowledge of God!
how unsearchable are his judgments,
and his ways past finding out!

Life Is Full Of Lessons ~

Life is full of lessons,
some are hard, some not
some we understand quickly
others a lifetime are fought.

We need to examine,
what God wants use to learn
for what we take from them
will decide to whom we turn.

Life is full of experiences,
some easy, some difficult
some we undergo in our youth
others when we’re an adult.

We need to analyze,
to study and to explore
so we can formulate
with Him a daily rapport.

Life is full of lessons,
and God wants us to learn . . .
they are for our own good
so the truth we can discern!

~~~~~~~~

Proverbs 3:1-2

My son, forget not my law;
but let thine heart keep
my commandments:

For length of days, and long life,
and peace, shall they add to thee.

Isaiah 40:8

The grass withereth,
the flower fadeth:
but the word of our
God shall stand for ever.

Hanging On By A Thread ~

Is your faith hanging,
on by a thin thread . . .
are your thoughts filled
with fear and dread?

Then you need to take,
a hold of your hope
and let the Word of God
give you the skills to cope.

Is your trust dangling,
right in front of you
are you warn out and down
by all that you do?

Then you need to take,
a hold of the slack
and let the Word of God
give your strength back.

Is your faith slacking,
is you trust aground
well turn to God’s Word
and your hope will rebound!

Lamp Of Faith ~

Lamp of faith,
guide our day
lead us to
the narrow Way.

Word of Truth,

help us to win
the faithful fight.

Life of peace,

Shield of strength,
lifter of head
may we always be
Holy Spirit led.

Lamp of faith,
Truth and peace
may Your power . . .
never in us cease!

I Speak The Truth ~

I speak the truth,
I know it’s true
for God it comes
right from You.

Your Word is inspired,
by Your own Spirit
and so I believe
every word in it.

I speak the truth,
I know it’s right
for Jesus it brings
to Life, Your Light.

You instill in us,
to grow in grace
so Your image
we may embrace.

I speak the truth,
all in love . . .

in God above!

Rightly Dividing ~

Rightly dividing,
the truth of the Word
rightly believing
in the facts heard.

Either it’s the true Gospel,
Holy Spirit inspired
or the one that’s diluted
that you now desire.

Rightly understanding,
what the cross is about
rightly receiving
our Savior without doubt.

Either you believe Jesus,
died for everyone’s sin
or you reject Him and go
with a different spin.

Rightly dividing,
rightly discerning . . .
for the true Word of God
is worth our perusing!

2 Timothy 2:15

Study to shew thyself

Jesus My Teacher ~

I’m studying the Bible,
Jesus will be my teacher
for I know He is . . .
the true Gospel preacher.

I’m learning all about Him,
how His life He lived
He’s showing me how others
I too must forgive.

He’s teaching me why I need,
to die to myself each day
how not to let my pride
or ego to get in His way.

I’m using the directions,
He daily gives to me
so though Him I’ll believe
in what I cannot see.

I’m studying my Bible,
so I can be transformed . . .
and in the end into His image
I hoping to be conformed!

Heavenly Mandates ~

Heavenly mandates,
we all surely need . . .
tis why God gave to us
His Word to daily read.

For He knew we needed,
His divine instructions
on how to get over
temporal obstructions.

Heavenly policies,
are found in the Good Book
for God left them to us
as salvation’s handbook.

For inside the pages,
is where you will find
inspirations from God
for both heart and mind.

Heavenly directives,
are for our own good
for they tell us how
to live as we should.

They gives us the tools,
we must have to fight
those worldly-minded
opposing His light.

Heavenly mandates,
not those political . . .
for we must not follow
what is non-biblical!

A Place Of Quiet ~

A place of quiet,
is all I need . . .
for me to open
my Bible and read.

No upheaval,
no stir, no confusion
for me to feel . . .
His Spirit’s infusion.

A tranquil place,
is all I desire
so God’s Word
can in me inspire.

No commotion,
no fury, no uproar
just the Good News
for me to explore.

A place serene,
is all I want to find . . .

can guard my mind!

A Buffet of Hope and Trust ~

Every day is a smorgasbord,
a buffet of renewed pardon
a fresh supply of God’s grace
found in His Word garden.

I hunger after what is holy,
to help me through the day
only in the Word can I find
the Light to lead my way.

My appetites are gratified,
from the verses that I read
for they reassure me
Jesus is all I’ll ever need.

I thirst after the Truth,
reading the Word will bring
it satisfied my hunger pangs
it’s like dining with my King.

I need a steady filling,
of God’s mercy and His love
it’s like manna from heaven
coming down from above.

Every day is a smorgasbord,
a buffet of hope and trust  . . .
for the Word is like a banquet
Jesus set up for each of us!

Just Pick Up Your Bible ~

When you’re feeling down,
and you need a lift
just pick up your Bible
and give yourself a gift.

For inside you’ll find,
God’s promises galore
for you to find and claim
when His Word you explore.

When you’re feeling anxious,
remember this one thing
since God is on our side
what good will worry bring.

For He is our God of peace,
who showers us from above
the gentleness of His mercy
in the tenderness of His love.

When you’re feeling discouraged,
and deep waters begin to flow
cast your cares upon Him
then watch His blessings grow.

For He is your Rock and Anchor,
He will never let you down
He will turn those deep rivers
into dry and solid ground.

All the assurance you need,
is written in the Good Book
but you’ll have to pick it up
and take for yourself a look!

False Teachers ~

False teachers,
today can be heard
feeding heresies
to their sleepy herd.

Denying to the masses,
the need for repentance
making all feel safe
with their acceptance.

False teachers,
bringing destruction
misleading the sheep
with their deception.

Rejecting the Lord’s call,
to go and sin no more
allowing tolerance
to enter the True Door.

False teachers,
preaching every Sunday
no longer advocating . . .
just how narrow is the Way!

~~~~~~~

2 Peter 2:1-2

But there were false prophets
also among the people, even
as there shall be false teachers
among you, who privily shall
bring in damnable heresies,
even denying the Lord that
bought them, and bring upon
themselves swift destruction.

And many shall follow their
pernicious ways; by reason
of whom the way of truth
shall be evil spoken of.

The Gospel Truth ~

May the Gospel Truth,
remain in you . . .
may you always stay
to what is true.

May no one take,
the Truth from you away
may to false teachings
you opt not to obey.

May the Gospel Truth,
never depart from you
may you keep to the Way
you believe is true.

May no other gospel,
take you off course
may you always discern
from where the source.

May the Gospel truth,
keep you engaged . . .
may to those untrue
you not be enslaved!

~~~~~~~~

Galatians 2:4-5

And that because of false
brethren unawares brought in,
who came in privily to spy out
our liberty which we have in
Christ Jesus, that they might
bring us into bondage:

To whom we gave place by
subjection, no, not for an hour;
that the truth of the gospel
might continue with you.

Gospel Mutations ~

The Gospel of Christ,
has many mutations
preached by different
denominations.

The gospel of works,
it’s all about you . . .
not about what Jesus
was sent here to do.

The gospel of moralism,
is all about being good
but, it is just another
salvation falsehood.

The gospel of prosperity,
is about being made rich
not in the blood of Christ
but by some get rich pitch.

The gospel of self help,
again it’s back to you
not what Jesus . . .
came here to do!

~~~~~~~~

2 Corinthians 11:4

For if he that cometh preacheth
another Jesus, whom we have
not preached, or if ye receive
another spirit, which ye have
not received, or another gospel,
which ye have not accepted,
ye might well bear with him.

Into The Light Of Day ~

When all around me,
is cold and bleak . . .
when I’m feeling frail
fragile and weak.

I pick up my Bible,
to warm up my soul
knowing it’s Words
my heart will console.

When all around me,
is dark and dim . . .
when I’m feeling faint
helpless and grim.

I read the Scriptures,
to Lighten my spirits
knowing they’ll give me
hope without limits.

When all around me,
is cold, dark and gray . . .
God’s Word turns the night
into the Light of day!

My Light Generator ~

A light unto my path,
a brighter day I’ll see
for Jesus is the beam . . .
shining inside of me.

A lamp unto my feet,
His ways for me to see
for Jesus is the glow . . .
radiating out of me.

A candle in my darkness,
a flicker of hope to see
for Jesus is the sparkle . . .
twinkling all around me.

A lantern to my soul,
a glimmer for all to see
for Jesus is the shimmer . . .
reflecting out of me.

A torch unto my heart,
a spark that I can see
for Jesus is the flame . . .
burning deep in me!

The Light Unto My Way ~

I tuck the Word into my heart,
then I go about my way . . .
knowing I can trust in God
to guide me through my day.

So I rise up before the sun,
to meditate and learn . . .
for, I desire that the Word
be the only lamp I burn.

I get such peace and hope,
as my Bible I read along
with each Scripture I study
I feel myself growing strong.

Before I start out the door,
I pray for God’s guidance
I wait until I can hear Him . . .
breaking through the silence.

I tuck the Word in my heart,
for it renews me day-to-day
it goes with me wherever I go . . .
for it is the light unto my way!

for all those who are

God still talks,
He still is advising
His voice is still . . .
clear and recognizing.

For it is piercing,
sharp and unmistakable
it discerns the hearts
of those unshakable.

God still speaks,
we just need to listen
what about Him . . .
in our Bible is written.

His voice is still discernable,
identifiable and recognizable
and one day to Him . . .
we all will be accountable!

Hebrews 4:12

For the word of God is quick,

than any twoedged sword,

asunder of soul and spirit,
and of the joints and marrow,

thoughts and intents of the heart.

Word Garden ~

There is a place of calm,
for all of us to find . . .
a place to just let go
and find peace of mind.

Mine is in God’s garden,
amongst His Word I do reap
promises of green pastures
the gathering of His sheep.

Strolling along the path,
I bow down to smell a rose
the scent of His undying love
in my heart forever grows.

As I walk the narrow way,
I stop to pick a verse . . .
I’m in awe by His goodness
in His grace I’m immersed.

I stop and sit upon the bench,
under the arbor of my soul
I rest in the knowledge . . .
God is always in control!

Life Lessons ~

There are many lessons,
each day we can learn
when into our Bibles . . .
we eagerly turn.

For throughout the pages,
flow all the issues of this life
along with the instructions
on how to overcome strife.

These teachings aren’t easy,
some of them are tough
but, they’ll help us to get by
when the going gets rough.

They will direct and lead us,
onto the righteous way
if we are willing to follow
the words they have to say.

There are many lessons,
to be learned and taught
for when we are inclined . . .
God will shape our thought!

Like Honey ~

I hear all kinds of evil,
things spoken and said
but, I don’t let them . . .
into my heart or head.

Instead I read my Bible,
daily the Word I study
for the grace of Jesus
to me is just like honey.

Its sweetness is pure,
it comforts and soothes
closer to God my soul
it motivates and moves.

I hear all sorts of words,
that are meant to offend
but, my faith in Jesus
I will always defend.

For, like a bee to a hive,
to Him I am drawn . . .
His words of hope and peace
I’d much rather dwell upon!

The Happy CHRISTian ~

The happy CHRISTian,
reads the Scriptures
the grace of Jesus
their mind pictures.

They find their pleasure,
not in worldly things
but in the peace and joy
His salvation brings.

They shun the world,
find in it no delight
the Word they meditate
both the day and night.

They are like a tree,
that is rooted well
for inside their soul
the Holy Spirit dwells.

The happy CHRISTian,
pursues the right way
that is why they read . . .
God’s Word every day!

And he shall be like a tree planted

What Have You Got ~

You can peruse your Bible,
all that you want . . .
but if you don’t apply it
what have you got?

For what good does it do,
if you don’t employ and heed
the instruction God gives
to you as you read?

You can read the Word,
all the day long . . .
but if you don’t utilize it
how can you be strong?

For once in the world,
you venture out in . . .
how will you keep from
being tempted by sin?

You can study your Bible,
till your face turns blue
but if you don’t live it . . .
what good is it to you!

But he said, Yea rather,
blessed are they that hear
