Be A Contender ~

Lord, let me be a contender,
a competitor in the race
so I may be a testament
of Your life-saving grace.

Help me to finish well,
so the prize I can earn
by guiding me around
each bend, every turn.

Let me be a front-runner,
to living a life sinless
so I may be for You
everyday a witness.

If You should ever see me,
fall off the narrow track
I pray You will quickly
guide me to You back.

Lord, let me be a contender,
one who runs with dignity
let me be a champion
of love and charity!

~~~~~~~~

Jude 1:3

Beloved, when I gave all diligence
to write unto you of the common
salvation, it was needful for me to
write unto you, and exhort you that
ye should earnestly contend for the
faith which was once delivered
unto the saints.

Like A River Tree ~

I want my faith to grow,
like a river tree . . .
so my life will reflect
Lord, my love for Thee.

I want my hope to tap,
into the blood of life
so I will not wither . . .
underneath all the strife.

I want my assurance,
to always represent
my hope and belief
in the new covenant.

I want my trust to form,
and be firmly grounded
so my fruit will be . . .
abundant and well-rounded.

I want my faith to grow,
like a tree by the river
always giving thanks . .
Lord, to You my life-saver!

Psalm 1:3

And he shall be like a tree
planted by the rivers of water,
that bringeth forth his fruit
in his season; his leaf also
shall not wither; and whatsoever
he doeth shall prosper.

To Walk In The Spirit ~

Walking in the Spirit,
is not so easy to do
especially when you know
the world’s watching you.

For the lusts of the flesh,
must not be satisfied
for we know with Jesus
we have been crucified.

Holy Spirit walking,
takes His guidance
lest we fall under
the world’s influence.

For our natural nature,
can be easily mislead
unless we are willing
to be Holy Spirit lead.

To walk in the Spirit,
takes one step at a time
so that with God’s will
our own will align!

This I say then,
Walk in the Spirit,

Fruit Of Our Faith ~

Within each of us,
the Holy Spirit resides . . .
and the fruit of our faith
needs to be daily applied.

But, we must feel the fire,
the burning of desire
to call upon His strength
so His might we’ll acquire.

Then we’ll be loving,
in all things we’ll have peace
and our joy and happiness
will be natural to release.

To have God like patience,
we must learn to be kind
then gentleness will flow
from our hearts and minds.

We need to let humility,
guide us to being meek
by not forgetting His power
each day we must seek.

The Holy Spirit abides
in every one of us . . .
and to produce much fruit
in Jesus we need to trust!

The Seeds Your Are Sowing ~

Some scatter seeds of anxiety,
and harvest nothing but fear
some collect in their memory
the reason for all their tears.

Some spread seeds of distrust,
and collect grains of doubt
some gather up their losses
shutting all their blessings out.

Some cast seeds of excess,
and reap in what they sow
some collect worldly pleasures
thinking God will never know.

Some throw seeds of greed,
and collect envy and pride
some lose their hope and faith
when their will with God’s collide.

Some scatter seeds of doubt,
and harvest nothing but fear
but those who mock not God
sow the seeds of repentant tears!

“Be not deceived;
God is not mocked: for

whatsoever a man soweth,

God Sees The Real Us ~

God sees the real us,
He is able to view . . .
right inside the heart
of me and you.

He can look beyond,
what the eyes find
to know the thoughts
that hide in the mind.

God is searching for,
hearts that are gentle
where living in peace
is always central.

He glances not at,
the outside of us
but, within the soul
of those who trust.

God does not look,
at how high our stature
He’s looking to find . . .
those of a meek nature!

~~~~~~~~

1 Peter 3:4

But let it be the hidden man
of the heart, in that which is
not corruptible, even the ornament
of a meek and quiet spirit,
which is in the sight of God
of great price.

1 Samuel 16:7

But the Lord said unto Samuel,
Look not on his countenance,
or on the height of his stature;
because I have refused him:
for the Lord seeth not as man seeth;
for man looketh on the outward
appearance, but the Lord looketh
on the heart.

The Words On Your Tongue ~

May the words of your mouth,
be filled with praise
may the spirits of others
they lift up and raise.

May they be seasoned,
with the salt of life
may others they help
with their earthly life.

May the words on your tongue,
be full of Jesus’ love
may they reflect the ones
of your Father’s above.

May they be honest and pure,
graceful and real
may God use them to repair
to restore and to heal.

May the words in your head,
be well thought out . . .
before from your lips
you even let them spout!

~~~~~~~~

Ephesians 4:29

Let no corrupt communication
proceed out of your mouth,
but that which is good to the use
of edifying, that it may minister
grace unto the hearers.

and the meditation of my heart,
be acceptable in thy sight,
O Lord, my strength,

Hidden Sin ~

Hidden sin separates,
it divides and conquerors
the blood of Jesus
it wastes and squanders.

It is toxic,
noxious and deadly
it keeps you living
in this world worldly.

Hidden sin destroys,
it ruins and it kills
it keeps you away
from doing God’s will.

It is deceptive,
corrupt and misleading
the more you conceal it
the more it keeps breeding.

Hidden sin is not really,
concealed from all eyes . . .
for there’s no way from God
can our sins we disguise!

~~~~~~~~

Psalm 19:12

Who can understand his errors?
cleanse thou me from secret faults.

Proverbs 28:13

He that covereth his sins
shall not prosper:
but whoso confesseth
and forsaketh them

Reflecting God’s Love ~

Reflecting God’s love,
is mirroring His Sons
as we show our own
to each and everyone.

It’s letting His Spirit,
come alive in you
so His love can be seen
in all that we do.

Expressing God’s love,
is echoing Jesus’ too
by showing others
how He abides in you.

It’s being kind to all,
merciful and gracious
by always being polite
warm and courteous.

Reflecting God’s love,
we all need to do
for it will reproduce
Jesus image in you!

The Walk Of The Wise ~

Those that are wise,
travel together
God’s wisdom and trust
they reap and gather.

For they know to walk,
on the righteous path
will lead them away
from knowing God’s wrath.

Those that are wise,
journey together
Jesus’ grace and hope
they consume and devour.

For they know to believe,
in things they can’t see
will take all their faith
until with Him they be.

Those that are wise,
keep on the right track
for they know wisdom . . .
they will never lack!

If More People Forgave ~

If more people,
would just forgive
they would be
less combative.

If more would show,
mercy and grace
there’d be less anger
seen on their face.

If more people,
would be remorseful
their actions would be
a lot less forceful.

If more would find,
hope and peace
less resentment
would they release.

If all the people,
turned to the Light
there’d be no evil left . . .
in which to fight!

~~~~~~~

Ephesians 4:31-32

Let all bitterness,
and wrath, and anger,
and clamour, and evil
speaking, be put away
from you, with all malice:

And be ye kind one to another,

another, even as God for
Christ’s sake hath forgiven you.

Things That Are True ~

When I think about,
things that are true
Lord, I can’t help . . .
but to think of You.

For You are honest,
righteous and pure
only through You
does sin have a cure.

When I think about,
things that are lovely
Lord, I think about . . .
my hope lively.

For all that is good,
worthy and right
are justified through
the truth in Your light.

When I think about,
all that is true . . .
Lord, I cannot help
but to praise You!

~~~~~~~~

Philippians 4:8

Finally, brethren,
whatsoever things are true,
whatsoever things are honest,
whatsoever things are just,

whatsoever things are of good report;

and if there be any praise,
think on these things.

We Are Earthen Vessels ~

We are earthen vessels,
treasures, yes we are . . .
God’s power bottled up
in each and every jar.

So when we are troubled,
we do not fret or stress
instead we claim victory
that in Him we possess.

And when we’re perplexed,
our trust in God we declare
so that we will not fall
into a state of despair.

And when we’re persecuted,
our lives are not shaken
for God’s promised us
we’d never be forsaken.

And when we’re cast down,
we are not devastated
for we know from God
we’ll never be separated.

We are earthen vessels,
inside of us Jesus lives
and daily into our life’s
His power He boldly gives!

~~~~~~~~

2 Corinthians 4:7-10

But we have this treasure
in earthen vessels, that the
excellency of the power may
be of God, and not of us.

We are troubled on every side,
yet not distressed;
we are perplexed,
but not in despair;

Persecuted, but not forsaken;
cast down, but not dest
royed;

Always bearing about in the body
the dying of the Lord Jesus,
that the life also of Jesus
might be made manifest in our body.

Love Is ~

Love bears all things,
it is not rude
it doesn’t possess
an arrogant mood.

For it is patient,
it is also kind
it does not boast
or have a lofty mind.

Love believes all things,
it seeks the truth
it is not harsh
nor is it uncouth.

For it’s not irritable,
it is instead patient
it holds no bitterness
for it is diligent.

Love endures all things,
it rejoices not in evil
it see right through
the tricks of the devil.

For it understands,
it has wisdom
it will not bow down
to a worldview system.

Love hopes all things,
it holds on fast . . .
it knows these times
will not forever last!

~~~~~~~~

1 Corinthians 13:4-7

Love is patient and kind;
love does not envy or boast;
it is not arrogant or rude.
It does not insist on its own way;
it is not irritable or resentful;
it does not rejoice at wrongdoing,
but rejoices with the truth.
Love bears all things,
believes all things,
hopes all things,
endures all things.

To Win The Faithful Race ~

The faithful race,
isn’t an easy course
it’s rough and bumpy
and at times coarse.

For us to stay on track,
takes a lot of grit . . .
and we need the power
of the Holy Spirit.

The faithful race,
isn’t an simple route
it’s trying and difficult
full of fear and doubt.

For we know there’ll be,
plenty of resistance
and without His strength
we can’t go the distance.

To win the faithful race,
we need to have endurance
and holding fast to Jesus
is our only assurance!

The Long Road To Humility ~

It’s a long road,
this one of humility
it takes quite a time . . .
to see it visually.

It’s an uphill climb,
getting rid of pride
it takes quite awhile . . .
to train a meek stride

It’s a long pathway,
to take on your ego
it takes quite a fight . . .
to finally let it go.

It’s a slippery slope,
on the way to meekness
it takes quite a spell . . .
to admit your weakness.

On the road to meekness,
on our pride we’ll stumble
but God will give to us . . .
the grace to be humble!

~~~~~~~~

1 Peter 5:5

Likewise, ye younger, submit yourselves

John 15:4

Abide in me, and I in you.
As the branch cannot bear
fruit of itself, except it abide
in the vine; no more can ye,
except ye abide in me.

A Purposeful Plan ~

A purposeful plan,
in Christ centered
once into the world
Jesus entered.

A pattern for us,
on how we’re to live
one that teaches us how
to love and forgive.

A life reflecting,
His grace and goodwill
one desiring knowing
and doing God’s will.

A spiritual walk,
in every one of His ways
willing to be Spirit led
for the rest of our days.

A life filled with purpose,
like Jesus we’re to be
so that His Spirit in us
others would too see!

1 John 2:6

He that saith he abideth
in him ought himself also
so to walk, even as he walked.

God’s Purpose For Us ~

God’s purpose for us,
is for our eternal good
His plans for us . . .
is to do as He would.

For He wants to give,
our life a new meaning
so that on His power
we may start leaning.

God wants us to grow,
our faith each day
so we may follow
the Truth filled Way.

For we cannot do,
without Him anything
unless we know
about Him everything.

God’s purpose for us,
is His will to pursue
His plan is to let Jesus . . .
show us just how to!
