The Race I Entered ~

When the race I entered,
I didn’t know the distance
nor that there would be
so much resistance.

I didn’t think how far,
I would be running
nor how satan after me
would still be coming.

I didn’t think how much,
courage it would take
as I kept aiming
for the narrow gate.

I didn’t think how few,
had the faith to hold fast
nor how many of them
I could actually outlast.

When I entered the race,
I didn’t know it was so long
and it’s only because of Jesus
that I’ve kept going strong!

~~~~~~~~

1 Corinthians 9:24

Know ye not that they which
run in a race run all,
but one receiveth the prize?
So run, that ye may obtain.

A Kind, Gentle Spirit ~

A kind, gentle spirit,
is full of God’s grace
His mercy each day
it’s ready to embrace.

It prays to discern,
what is God’s will
then it waits on Him
as it remains still.

To self it’s crucified,
in Christ its made new
it keeps Calvary
always in its view.

It knows its limits,
goes not over the line
for it’s firmly rooted
to the True Vine.

A kind, gentle spirit,
needs to be cultivated
by having its ego . . .
by Jesus deflated!

Proverbs 21:21

He that followeth after
righteousness and mercy
findeth life, righteousness,

Hear My Son ~

This is My Beloved Son,
hear what He has to say
for He is the only Life . . .
to the Truth and the Way.

Open up your ears,
so that you may hear
how He can bring you
eternal joy and cheer.

Listen with your heart,
envision in your mind
how only through Him
true peace will you find.

Take heed to His calling,
to witness for yourself
how your every sin
He took upon Himself.

This is My Beloved Son,
He’s speaking to you today
listen closely to Him . . .
for He’s to Me the only Way!

And there came a voice
out of the cloud, saying,

You Can’t Take It With You ~

Hearses don’t pull trailers,
filled with earthly treasures
they don’t tow your assets
or your worldly pleasures.

They don’t carry the living,
with their prized possessions
they only bring along coffins
to the grave side processions.

You can’t take it with you,
all you’ve got will turn to rust
what you adore and cherish
will be left behind in the dust.

You can’t haul away your stuff,
there’s no place in heaven for it
one day all you own and love
you will be forced to forfeit.

There is no trailer hitch,
attached to that black hearse
all your valuables down here
others one day will disperse.

You can’t take it with you,
so you might as well let it go
for where your heart is . . .
to the world it will show!

~~~~~~~~~~

Matthew 6:20-21

“But lay up for yourselves
treasures in heaven,
where neither moth
nor rust doth corrupt,
and where thieves do not
break through nor steal:
For where your treasure is,
there will your heart be also.”

Depressing Times ~

Depressing times,
takes a lot of hope
a true faith in God
to be able to cope.

For without faith,
hope there can’t be
to keep us believing
in what we can’t see.

Discouraging seasons,
takes a lot of trust
it takes the believer
inside all of us.

For without trust,
there can’t be belief
for the hope of having
everlasting relief.

Time’s depressing,
season’s discouraging
takes faith, trust and hope
constantly nourishing!

~~~~~~~~

Romans 12:12

Rejoicing in hope;
patient in tribulation;
continuing instant in prayer;

Proverbs 3:5

Trust in the Lord
with all thine heart;
and lean not unto
thine own understanding.

God’s Cup Is Brimming ~

God’s cup is brimming,
with His mercies and grace . .
He desires nothing more
than to see us finish the race.

So He gives us strength,
whenever ours is weak
keeping us humble
so we may remain meek.

He renews our faith,
so like eagles we’ll soar
in storms He helps us
to rise over the roar.

His anger is slow,
as we stumble along
His love is steadfast
to keep our trust strong.

He forgives and forgets,
our sins and our shame
He provides salvation
to all who call on His name.

God’s cup is brimming,
with compassion and favor
so He sent His own Son . . .
to be our personal Savior!

~~~~~~~~

Lamentations 3:22-23

It is of the Lord’s mercies
that we are not consumed,
because his compassion’s fail not.

They are new every morning:
great is thy faithfulness.

Give Me Grace Lord ~

Give me grace Lord,
when all is going right

when up against a fight.

Give me grace Lord,

A Long As We Exist ~

Lord, show us Your paths,
as long as we exist . . .
to Your righteous ways
may we never resist.

Teach us to be still,
until the timing is right
give us the strength
in the battles we fight.

Let us not be impatient,
til in the future we meet
guide each and every step
of our oft stumbling feet.

Keep us from becoming,
ever fearful and afraid
let us not limit You
so we’ll not be dismayed.

Lord, show us Your Ways,
reveal to us Your plans . . .
so we may come to rest
in Your almighty hands!

I will help thee;
yea, I will uphold thee

of my righteousness.

My Brother’s Keeper ~

I am my brother’s keeper,
I help him to understand
I encourage him to put
his life into God’s hand.

I am my sister’s keeper,
I help her to see the light
I encourage her to grow
to keep Jesus in her sight.

I am my mother’s keeper,
in her old age I help her out
I hold her hand when lonely
to calm her fears and doubt.

I am my father’s keeper,
I lift to God, his very soul
I pray each day and night
Jesus will make him whole.

I am my children’s keeper,
I listen to their concerns
I pray for God to give them
the wisdom to discern.

I am my neighbor’s keeper,
I pray for their daily needs
I tell them to always heed
to follow where God leads.

The Lord is my keeper,
He is with me every day
He watches over me . . .
as I travel the narrow way!

God Is Always Present ~

Some people say,
God is so far away . . .
some think He doesn’t
hear them when they pray.

Some people believe,
God is always present
some think He listens
to their every lament.

Some people rely,
only on their feelings
some think God’s not fair
with them in His dealings.

Some people depend,
on their faith and trust
some think God’s always
good, fair and just.

Some people say,
Jesus is so distant
some know He is . . .
always consistent!

Why standest thou afar off,

Draw To God Near ~

When my heart pounds,
with anxiety and fear
it only calms down . .
as I draw to God near.

For the closer I get,
to where He is . . .
I am reminded
my dread is all His.

When my nerves jitter,
with doubt and worry
they only ease up . . .
when with God I tarry.

For the more time,
with Him I spend
I can see His light
just around the bend.

When my I am feeling,
shaky and dismayed
to God I close in . . .
so not to be afraid!

~~~~~~~~

Isaiah 41:10

When God is our stronghold,

When God is our deliverer,
we will never fall back
when He is our shield
we’ll win satan’s attack.

When God is our strength,
we will not be shaken
When He is our shelter . . .
we’ll not be forsaken!

Wisdom From Above ~

Wisdom from above,
is pristine and spotless
it’s full of mercy
impeccable and flawless.

It fruits are good,
they are reasonable
for it sees all people
as being redeemable.

It is full of peace,
it is gentle and kind
for, it knows God’s love
is for all of mankind.

It speaks no evil,
it is never critical
for it knows Jesus’ grace
is not political.

Wisdom from above,
is compassionate
for, after righteousness
it is God’s advocate!

~~~~~~~~

James 3:17-18

But the wisdom that is from
above is first pure, then peaceable,
gentle, and easy to be intreated,
full of mercy and good fruits,
without partiality, and without hypocrisy.
And the fruit of righteousness is sown
in peace of them that make peace.

Staying The Course

Lord, this hasn’t been easy,
but, I’m staying the course
only because You’ve been . . .
my strength’s sole source.

You’ve never let me down,
for me You’re always there
ready to take upon Yourself
the weight of all my care.

Lord, You’ve been with me,
throughout the race so far
compelling me to endure
so I can be where You are.

You’ve given me patience,
when mine was running low
helping me to keep the faith
so that Your joy I may know.

Lord, You got me started,
in this race I am in . . .
and when I finish it
I’ll have victory over sin!

~~~~~~~~

Hebrews 12:1-2

Wherefore seeing we also are compassed
about with so great a cloud of witnesses,
let us lay aside every weight, and the sin
which doth so easily beset us, and let us
run with patience the race that is set before us,

Looking unto Jesus the author and finisher
of our faith; who for the joy that was set
before him endured the cross, despising
the shame, and is set down at the right
hand of the throne of God.

If Only I Could ~

If only I could collect,
in the world all the hate
I’d show it the way . . .
to the narrow gate.

I would let it know,
how to let its anger go
so God’s love instead
could begin to flow.

If only I could glean,
all the world’s wickedness
I’d show it the way
to eternal happiness.

I would let it know,
how evil is never good
and how it is satan’s
favorite falsehood.

If only I could gather up,
all the hate and evilness
I would show it the way . . .
to eternal peacefulness!

~~~~~~~~

Proverbs 10:12

Hatred stirreth up strifes:
but love covereth all sins.

Romans 1:29-32

Being filled with all unrighteousness,
fornication, wickedness, covetousness,
maliciousness; full of envy, murder,
debate, deceit, malignity; whisperers,

Backbiters, haters of God, despiteful,
proud, boasters, inventors of evil things,
disobedient to parents,

Without understanding, covenantbreakers,
without natural affection, implacable, unmerciful:

Who knowing the judgment of God,
that they which commit such things
are worthy of death, not only do the same,
but have pleasure in them that do them.

Born Of God ~

Born of God,

holding onto . . .

Now I am of God,
I have His protection
for He gives to me
truth and direction.

The world’s no longer,
a place I call home
for it’s where man’s
wickedness roams.

A child of God,
from sinning set free
now that Jesus . . .
lives inside of me!

~~~~~~~~

1 John 5:18-20

We know that whosoever
is born of God sinneth not;
but he that is begotten of
God keepeth himself,
and that wicked one
toucheth him not.

And we know that we are
of God, and the whole world
lieth in wickedness.

And we know that the Son of God
is come, and hath given us an
understanding, that we may know
him that is true, and we are in him
that is true, even in his Son Jesus Christ.
This is the true God, and eternal life.

Tears Fall From Up In Heaven ~

Tears fill up their ducts,
with deep sorrow they fall from
for His eyes see the sadness . . .
of the days still yet to come.

They well within their rims,
till they begin to overflow
for His eyes see the grief . . .
of what only He could know.

They trickle down His cheeks,
as they slowly start to run
for His eyes see the world . . .
without the love of His Son.

They flood from their brims,
and puddle onto the floor
for His eyes see the day . . .
this world will be no more.

Tears fall from up in heaven,
like a thunderous mighty rain
so many still live their lives . . .
in futileness and in vain.

God cries for the unsaved,
the lost, the unforgiven . . .
His tears reflect those who reject
what His Son has so freely given!

empty His love and mercy

1 Thessalonians 4:16-17

For the Lord himself shall descend
from heaven with a shout,
with the voice of the archangel,
and with the trump of God:
and the dead in Christ shall rise first:

Then we which are alive
and remain shall be caught
up together with them
in the clouds, to meet the Lord
in the air: and so shall
we ever be with the Lord.

A Touch Of His Hem ~

When I saw Him from a distance,
I ran and followed after Him
for, I believed all I needed . . .
was just a touch of His hem.

For years I’ve been scorned,
shunned by those around me
so I hid myself in the crowd
hoping my shame He wouldn’t see.

As He passed by I reached down,
and took from Him my cure . . .
for, I believed this man named Jesus
would heal me if my faith was pure.

He called me His daughter,
when my trust in Him I revealed
and from that very moment
from my disease I was healed.

He bid to me to go in good comfort,
saying my faith had made me whole
for, I believe as I touched His hem . . .
He imparted favor right into my soul.

There is a lesson to my story,
don’t be ashamed of your illness or sin
for Jesus still heals today . . .
if you let Him touch you from within!

Matthew 9:20-22

“And, behold, a woman,
which was diseased with an issue
of blood twelve years,
came behind him, and touched
the hem of his garment:
For she said within herself,
If I may but touch his garment,
I shall be whole.

But Jesus turned him about,
and when he saw her, he said,
Daughter, be of good comfort;
thy faith hath made thee whole.
And the woman was made whole
from that hour. “

That Still Small Voice ~

The winds started to roar,
they gusted all about
causing in me . . .
a trembling of doubt.

Then the earth quaked,
it shook and it broke
causing in me . . .
to nearly have a stroke.

Then a fire started up,
flames were all around
causing in me . . .
to have a near breakdown.

But, then came a calm,
and I started to hear
a still small voice . . .
whispering in my ear.

For, God didn’t speak to me,
in the sounds terrifying
but in the rustlings . . .
that were faith fortifying!

~~~~~~~~

1 Kings 19:11-12

And he said, Go forth, and stand
upon the mount before the Lord.
And, behold, the Lord passed by,
and a great and strong wind rent
the mountains, and brake in pieces
the rocks before the Lord; but the
Lord was not in the wind: and after
the wind an earthquake;
but the Lord was not in the earthquake:

And after the earthquake a fire;
but the Lord was not in the fire:
and after the fire a still small voice.
