I Will Fight The Good Fight ~

I will fight the good fight,
I will to the end . . .
my faith in Jesus
I will always defend.

I will battle my foes,
I will wager my life
even if my trust in God
causes me worldly strife.

I will go off to war,
I will face my rivals
my hope in Jesus
they will never stifle.

I will wrestle my enemy,
I will face the struggle
for my devotion to God
they can never muzzle.

I will fight the good fight,
I will not ever give in
for I know in the end . . .
Jesus is going to win!

~~~~~~

1 Timothy 6:12

Fight the good fight of faith,
lay hold on eternal life,
whereunto thou art also called,
and hast professed a good
profession before many witnesses.

The Halves and Half Nots ~

Some people’s glass,
always seems filled
while others only see . . .
what from it spilled.

Some people are happy,
with what from God they get
others over their portion . . .
grumble, bemoan and fret.

Some people’s glass,
is always brimming
while others only view . . .
how much is missing.

Some people are all right,
with their God given share
while others only think . . .
what is or is not fair.

Some people’s glass,
is always adequate
while others only watch . . .
how fast theirs dissipates.

But, we who trust in God,
don’t care how full the glass
for it is in heaven where . . .
our treasures we amass!

~~~~~~

Hebrews 13:5

Let your conversation
be without covetousness;
and be content with such
things as ye have: for he
hath said, I will never leave
thee, nor forsake thee.

Matthew 6:20

But lay up for yourselves
treasures in heaven, where
neither moth nor rust doth
corrupt, and where thieves
do not break through nor steal:

I Write In Rhyme ~

I write with rhythm,
I write in rhyme . . .
so to express my faith
as mountain’s I climb.

I open my mind,
to the Spirit’s leading
so to share with others
my uphill pleading’s.

I write with timing,
I write with a beat
so to help others
to stay on their feet.

I open my heart,
let the words flow
until I’m once again
in the valley below.

I write in rhyme,
I write out a poem
to encourage others
from God not to roam!

The law of his God is in his heart;

A Taste Of God ~

I have had a taste of God,
and all of His goodness
I have sipped from His cup
of truth and righteousness.

It left me with no appetite,
for the world or its ways
it has given me hope . . .
for peaceful, joyful days.

I have had a taste of God,
His kindness I now savor
for I have found in Him
my Lord and my Savior.

It left me with no craving,
for the world and its lust
it has given me the faith . . .
to put in Him my trust.

I have had a taste of God,
now my thirst is fully satisfied
my hunger pains are no more
once my heart, Jesus occupied!

~~~~~~~~

Psalm 34:8

O taste and see
that the Lord is good:
blessed is the man
that trusteth in him.

Before Me Lord ~

Before me Lord,
is where I will set You
before my plans . . .
Yours I will seek to do.

For I trust You Lord,
I’ll follow where You say
for in Your right hand
is where I want to stay.

Before me Lord,
I trust You will go
so the way to me
You, Yourself can show.

For You are my Rock,
nothing can move me
in Your righteous will
is where I want to be.

Before You Lord,
my praises I will sing
my tongue will rejoice
for the hope You bring!

~~~~~~~~

Psalm 16.8-9

I have set the Lord always
before me: because he is
at my right hand,
I shall not be moved.

Therefore my heart is glad,
and my glory rejoiceth:
my flesh also shall rest in hope.

A promise to the world,

Counselor to the meek

to give power to the weak.

so He sent His only Son
to save us from our fate.

A promise to the world,
our Lord and Savior is born

Joy Entered The World ~

Joy entered the world,
Truth found its way in
Grace penetrated through
all barrier’s of sin.

Love came down from heaven,
a Father’s Gift revealed
Light infiltrated into hearts
by His stripes they’re now healed.

The Way emergencies,
Jesse’s Branch shoots forth
a Savior materializes
out of a Virgin’s birth.

Peace broke though,
Flesh took on form
God’s Mercy establishes
Salvation’s only platform.

Hope descended,
God’s Favor comes to Rest
Eternal Life in His Son
finally manifests.

Joy entered the world,
a Messiah to all is born
tis why we celebrate  . . .
on this CHRISTmas morn!

~~~~~~~

John 1:14

And the Word was made flesh,
and dwelt among us, (and we
beheld his glory, the glory
as of the only begotten
of the Father,)

Tis The Night Before ~

Tis the night before,
a virgin’s birth
of a Savior born
right here on earth.

Beloved and begotten,
God’s only Son . . .
brings hope and salvation
for each and everyone.

Tis the night before,
a glorious new day
when the Life and Truth
came to show the Way.

A Gift straight from God,
full of love and grace
a Messiah, a King
for all the human race.

Tis the night before,
the birth of our Savior
God’s ultimate proof . . .
of His mercy and favor!

Luke 2:6-7

And so it was, that,
while they were there,

And she brought forth her firstborn son,
and wrapped him in swaddling clothes,
and laid him in a manger; because there
was no room for them in the inn.

Santa’s List ~

It’s not santa’s list,
I am concerned about
for he doesn’t hold
with me any clout.

I’m more mindful,
with my name being
listed in the book
God is keeping.

It’s not santa checking,
if I’m nice or naughty
for he is regardless . . .
always happy and jolly.

I’m more concerned with,
any sin I’ve got hidden
so I can repent now . . .
and for them be forgiven.

I don’t really care,
what santa may think
for I know God . . .
at sin doesn’t wink!

~~~~~~~

Revelation 20:15

And whosoever was not found
