Nightly Report ~

When at night,
you slip off to bed
before the pillow
wraps your head.

Thank your Father,
for His support
as you give to Him
your nightly report.

Let Him know,
how you’re grateful
for Him being to you
so ever faithful.

When at night,
on your bed you lay
before you call it
quits for the day.

Thank your Father,
for helping you
all those hours
to get through.

Let Him know,
about your struggles
then leave with Him
all your troubles.

When at night,
you turn to bed
before the sheets
blanket your head.

Thank Your Father,
for all He supplies
and soon His peace
will close your eyes!

Psalm 4:8

I will both lay me down in peace,
and sleep: for thou, Lord, only
makest me dwell in safety.

Blessing Counting ~

Don’t number your burdens,
instead count your blessings
for burden counting, adding
can be gloomy and depressing.

So let your mind run free,
and add up all the ways
God has provided you . . .
with your needs each day.

Don’t list your complaints,
instead tally up God’s benefits
for complaining, tallying
has disheartening elements.

So let your heart begin,
to list the hopeful things
everyday into your life
Jesus sends and brings.

Don’t list all of your have-nots,
rather count the good things God has given
when your done the total sum . . .
will add up to the reasons you’re forgiven!

“Bless the Lord, O my soul,

God Gives Shade ~

God gives shade,
to us when weary
provides a cover
when we’re dreary.

He shadows us with,
His mighty wings
helps us to rise
above all things.

God gives shade,
to us when frayed
provides a screen
when burden lade.

He shields us with,
His right hand
holds us upright
when we can’t stand.

God gives shade,
to us when dismayed
so His glory on us . . .
can be displayed!

Psalm 121:5

“The Lord is thy keeper:
the Lord is thy shade upon
thy right hand.”

A Holy Fight ~

If we’re to be,
for Jesus a light
we must be ready
evil to fight.

For the darkness hates,
all that is right
and will stop at nothing
to douse our light.

If we’re to be,
for Jesus the salt
we must be prepared
for the world’s assault.

For the darkness hates,
all that is sound
and will do anything
to hold its ground.

If we’re to be for Jesus,
the salt and the light . . .
then we must be prepared
for a holy fight!

~~~~~~~~~

Ephesians 6:12

“For we wrestle not against
flesh and blood, but against
principalities, against powers,
against the rulers of the
darkness of this world,
against spiritual wickedness
in high places.

Called By God ~

Called by God,
into righteous living
all because of grace
not of our own doing.

A holy pure life,
we’re to lead
so sin into it . . .
cannot breed.

Called to be saints,
without blame
in love and truth
without shame.

A fountain of life,
we are to be
so Jesus’ light in us
the world can see.

Called by God,
into a life holy
called to give up
our ungodly folly!

~~~~

2 Timothy 1:9

“Who hath saved us, and called us
 with an holy calling,
not according to our works,
but according to his own
purpose and grace, which
was given us in Christ
Jesus before the world began,”

God’s Not Winking ~

God is no longer,
winking at man
for judgment day
soon is at hand.

He wants all of us,
to be idolatry free
so with Him in heaven
we can eternally be.

God is no longer,
looking the other way
He wants everyone
to turn to Him today.

He wants mankind,
to confess their sin
so more unsaved souls
Jesus can win.

God is no longer,
at man winking an eye
He’s now looking for . . .
the heart repentant cry!

~~~~~~~~~

Acts 17:30

“And the times of this
ignorance God winked at;
but now commandeth all
men every where to repent:”

Wanderer’s Wandering ~

Wanderer’s wandering,
roaming around
looking and searching
for what can’t be found.

Rootless and fruitless,
wanderers they are
faithless and godless
in their travels afar.

Roving and drifting,
wanderers they be
smug and ungrateful
from righteousness flee.

Nomadic problematic,
wanderers go off
leaving and parting
as God they scoff.

Wanderer’s wandering,
God wants you home
He wants your steps
to no longer roam.

Return returners,
Oh, thou to Me
come back and revisit
My love for thee.

Arrive and survive,
Oh, thou My roving rover
I will forgive your heart
a thousand times over!

~~~~~~~

2 Chronicles 7:14

If my people, which are called by my name,
shall humble themselves, and pray,
and seek my face, and turn from their
wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven,
and will forgive their sin, and will
heal their land.

My Life Is God’s ~

My life is God’s,
to Him it belongs
His plans for me
I gladly go along.

In Him I live,
He moves my soul
to believe He is . . .
the One in control.

My life is God’s,
and not my own
only for how long
by Him is known.

In Him I exist,
my breath is His
for I’m convinced
it’s the way it is.

My life is God’s,
my being springs
from Him who created
all living things!

~~~~~~~~~

Acts 17:28

“For in him we live,
and move, and have our being;
as certain also of your
own poets have said,
For we are also his offspring.”

I’m A Work In Progress ~

I’m a work in progress,
you likely are one too . . .
each day Jesus is working
in us something new.

His grace is transforming us,
to be sin fighting saints
He’s shaping us to live a life
with principles and restraints.

He is molding our minds,
to be clean and spotless
He shaping our hearts
to live pure and flawless.

He knows all the lumps,
that need to be reformed
He’s modeling our lives
till in Him we’re transformed.

We have unlimited potential,
He’ll never be finished with us
but, you and I must believe
His remolding is always just.

I’m a work in progress,
you likely too are one . . .
each day God is shaping us
into the image of His Son!

Philippians 1:6

“Being confident of this very thing, that he
which hath begun a good work in you will

Whatever The Cost ~

Whatever You want Lord,
whatever the cost to me . . .
wherever it is You want
for me to go and be.

That’s where I’ll travel,
that’s the road I’ll take
for You all I possess
I willingly forsake.

Whenever You need me Lord,
wherever the place
whatever time You call me
to sow seeds of grace.

That is when I will leave,
that is when I’ll depart
for You in the harvest
I will gladly take part.

Whenever You want Lord,
whatever the cost . . .
for You I will go
and find those who are lost!

~~~~~~~~~

Philippians 3:8

Yea doubtless,
and I count all things
but loss for the excellency
of the knowledge of Christ
Jesus my Lord: for whom
I have suffered the loss
of all things, and do count
them but dung,
that I may win Christ.”

My Cup Is Brimming ~

My cup is quite full,
in fact it’s brimming
for in God’s mercy
I’m gleefully swimming.

My cup is full of joy,
glorious and triumphant
for Jesus has filled it
with grace abundant.

My cup is full of hope,
that keeps expanding
for its full of life
blissfully unending.

My cup is full of peace,
of a future brighter
for I know Jesus is
salvation’s provider.

My cup is quite full,
joy flows past the brim
for my life to Jesus . . .
I’ve surrendered to Him!

Psalm 23:5

“Thou preparest a table before me
in the presence of mine enemies:
thou anointest my head with oil;
my cup runneth over.

God Searchers ~

Some people search,
for life’s real meaning
they look everywhere
for some reasoning.

They grope around,
hoping they’ll find
the peace they need
to ease their mind.

Some people look,
for anything to idolize
they seek far and wide
to find that golden prize.

They are on a quest,
for spirituality . . .
to help them understand
their own immortality.

Some search everywhere,
for a god of some kind
when the True Living One
is right here to find!

~~~~~~

Acts 17:27

“That they should seek the Lord,
if haply they might feel after him,
and find him, though he be not
far from every one of us:”

There Is No Good In Evil ~

Calling evil good,
is the majority’s rule
and if you don’t agree . . .
you’re considered a fool.

For, when we tell the truth,
about man’s wickedness
we are told we are bigot’s
filled with hatefulness.

Calling good evil,
is the track mankind is on
and if you don’t agree . . .
their anger you will spawn.

For, those who are in the dark,
don’t want to see the Light
as they believe their choices
are their god given rights.

Today’s new social norm,
is a bitter pill to swallow
for calling evil good . . .
is satan’s favorite motto!

~~~~~~~

Isaiah 5:20

“Woe unto them that call
evil good, and good evil;
that put darkness for light,
and light for darkness;
that put bitter for sweet,
and sweet for bitter!”

God’s Not Finished With Me ~

God’s not finished with me,
I know this to be true . . .
for, I can see all the things
that He has yet to do.

I realize He got started,
on me a long time ago
but, I also know there’s still
a lot of room for me to grow.

God’s not done with me,
all things beautiful take time
but, first He needed to chisel
away sin’s grit and grime.

I know when I came to Him,
my life was a big mess
but, a masterpiece takes time
and a lot of divine finesse.

God’s not finished with me,
He has a long way to go . . .
but, I am confident in this
when He is done, I will know!

~~~~~~~~

Ecclesiastes 3:11

He hath made every thing
beautiful in his time:

Philippians 1:6

Being confident of this very
thing, that he which hath
begun a good work in you
will perform it until the
day of Jesus Christ:

Bold As Lions ~

Bold as lions,
are those who are righteous
they’ve nothing to fear
for they are virtuous.

Their conscience is clear,
they’ve no reason to doubt
for from the curse of darkness
they have found their way out.

Brave as lions,
are those who are Godly
they’ve nothing to dread
for they’ve ceased their folly.

Their hearts are right,
their evilness was replaced
with the love and mercy
of their Savior’s grace.

Bold and brave,
like lions are we . . .
for to our wicked ways
we were able to flee!

~~~~~~~~~

Proverbs 28:1

The wicked flee when
no man pursueth:
but the righteous are
bold as a lion.”

Holding On Fast ~

Though your situation,
may seem dire today
hold fast until tomorrow . . .
for God will make a way.

Though your circumstance,
may seem bleak today
hold fast until tomorrow . . .
for help is coming your way.

Though your predicament,
may make you weak today
hold fast until tomorrow . . .
for strength is on its way.

Though your condition,
may be overwhelming today
hold fast until tomorrow . . .
for clarity will come your way.

Though today you maybe weak,
tomorrow you’ll be strong
so just hold fast until . . .
God’s power comes along!

“Let us hold fast the profession
of our faith without wavering;

Just One Contrite Heart ~

You don’t need the masses,
for a revival to erupt . . .
you don’t need a large crowd
just one soul that’s not corrupt.

You don’t need a building,
for a revival to begin . . .
you don’t need a church pew
to light a fire burning within.

You don’t need a mega church,
for a revival to get lit . . .
you don’t need loud music
just you and the Holy Spirit.

You don’t need a Sunday service,
for a revival to ignite . . .
you don’t need an assembly
for a soul to flame and incite.

You don’t need the masses,
for a revival to start
all you need is just one . . .
lowly and contrite heart!

~~~~~~~~~

Isaiah 57:15

“For thus saith the high
and lofty One that inhabiteth
eternity, whose name is Holy;
I dwell in the high and holy place,
with him also that is of
a contrite and humble spirit,
to revive the spirit of the humble,
and to revive the heart
of the contrite ones.”

Salvation Isn’t For Sale ~

You can’t buy your way into heaven,
salvation is not for sale . . .
on your own merit you can’t get there
if you try you’ll only fail.

You can’t shop around for grace,
it’s a free gift God gave to all
you can’t pay for His mercy
you need to heed salvation’s call.

You can’t finance deliverance,
it’s only there if you repent
you can’t fund spiritual healing
you must God’s mercy instead except.

You can’t pick up the tab to heaven,
Jesus already paid the price . . .
you must believe His life for you
He willingly had to sacrifice!

~~~~~~~~~

Matthew 19:24

“And again I say unto you, It is easier for a
camel to go through the eye of a needle,
than for a rich man
to enter into the kingdom of God.”

God Whisperers ~

Today I whispered to God,
quietly told Him of my worry
asked Him to direct me
as I made today’s journey.

I didn’t need to scream,
yell or even shout
for I know God’s ears
are always about.

Today I murmured to God,
quietly told Him of my care
asked Him to give me peace
as I made my out there.

My voice was low and soft,
I didn’t need to get loud
for I know God’s ears . . .
to me are always bowed.

Today, I asked God for help,
to Him my prayers I whispered
and my thoughts from afar . . .
to His ears were delivered!

“Thou knowest my downsitting

Praise God Anyway ~

When you’re feeling stuck,
in life and its daily ruts
when you feel as if . . .
you’re just plain going nuts.

Take a short breather,
a minute or even two
and think of all that God
has performed just for you.

When you’re sick and tired,
and away you want to run
when life’s daily routines
are not one iota of fun.

Take a short break,
a second or even two
and think of all that Jesus
has carried just for you.

When stuck you’re feeling
before you run away
just take a short breather . . .
and praise God anyway!

Make Haste Lord ~

Make haste Lord,
do not be slow
Your help I need
for You to bestow.

Hurry up Lord,
do not tarry
alone this burden
I cannot carry.

Come quickly Lord,
do not delay
send more mercy
to me straight away.

Speed it up Lord,
do not meander
save me swiftly
from this disaster.

Make haste Lord,
run if You will
I so need You . . .
my heart to still!

Your Rapturous Love ~

Thank You Jesus,
for Your rapturous love
to me it’s like . . .
a taste of heaven above.

It anoints me with,
a hopeful tranquility
gives my faith
a buoyant stability.

Thank You Jesus,
for Your gentle ease
to me it’s like . . .
a perfumed breeze.

It refreshes me with,
a jubilant thankfulness
gives my trust
a humble gratefulness.

Thank You Jesus,
for being God’s sweet savour
for without Your sacrifice . . .
I would have no Savior!

~~~~~~

Ephesians 5:2

And walk in love,
as Christ also hath loved us,
and hath given himself for us
an offering and a sacrifice

Renewed Each Day ~

I would have lost heart,
given up on spiritual things
I would have fainted away
from the troubles life brings.

I would have passed out,
lost my faith and my hope
I would have lost count
just thrown in the rope.

I would have sunk under,
the pressure of my fears
I would have called it quits
amidst all of my tears.

I would have been crushed,
under my heavy load
I would have gotten off
the narrow traveled road.

I would have lost heart,
if each day I wasn’t renewed
I would have given up Lord . . .
if I didn’t keep my eyes on You!

~~~~~~~~

2 Corinthians 4:16-18

“Therefore we do not lose heart.
Though
outwardly we are
wasting away,yet inwardly 

we are being renewed day by day.
For our 
light affliction,
which is but for a moment, is 

working for us a far more exceeding
and 
eternal weight of glory,
while we do not look 

at the things which are seen,
but at the 
things which are not seen.
For the things
which are seen
are temporary,
but the things 
which are not seen
are eternal.”

Give Us Peace Lord ~

Give peace, Lord, give us peace,
on our heavy hearts bestow
the peace that surpasses . . .
all the worries that we know.

Give peace, Lord, give us peace,
to our dreary, weary souls
give us idyllic, flawless peace
over things we can’t control.

Give peace, Lord, give us peace,
to our fidgety, fretful minds
give us staying, trusting peace
to leave our troubles behind.

Give peace, Lord, give us peace,
to our worried, wary spirits
give us lulling, calming peace
before we reach our limits.

Give peace, Lord, give us peace,
Your quiet, quelling peace impart
into our flustered, frantic lives . . .
til it saturates our restless heart!

Here I am Lord ~

Here I am Lord,
take me as I am
work inside of me
as only You can.

Do what you must,
so in You I’ll trust
do what You’ve got to
to keep me close to You.

Here I am Lord,
here is the all of me
my mind, heart and soul
I’m offering up to Thee.

Do that thing You do,
to make me apart of You
do what You need to
to keep me staying true.

Here I am Lord,
coming to You as I am
for You to make me . . . 
just as faithful as a lamb!
