May Your Eyes Be Opened ~

May your eyes be opened,
to spiritual understanding
may the hope you now have
keep your faith expanding.

May you be enlightened,
to the truth you’ve found
may your heart be guarded
and your mind stay sound.

May your eyes discover,
God’s beauty and wonder
may upon His goodness
they contemplate and ponder.

May His spirit you trust,
as your guide and shield
may to His instructions
you diligently yield.

May the riches of His glory,
be your soul’s delight
may your future inheritance
always be in your sight!

~~~~~~~~

Ephesians 1:18

The eyes of your understanding
being enlightened; that ye may
know what is the hope of his calling,
and what the riches of the glory
of his inheritance in the saints,

Rocking and Rolling ~

When your world is shaken,
as it comes crumbling down
when it feels like your hope
has too been ran aground.

Know God will give you,
strength so you can find
His peace and tranquility
for your heart and mind.

When you world is rocked,
as it trembles and shakes
when it feels like your faith
has too put on its brakes.

Know God will help you,
to find the calm you need
so on the faithful path
you’ll be able to proceed.

When your world has you,
rocking and rolling . . .
be sure on God’s strength
you find yourself calling!

~~~~~~~~~~

Isaiah 40:29

He giveth power to the faint;
and to them that have no might
he increaseth strength.

Transformation Takes Time ~

Conversion isn’t always,
instantly spontaneous
for most people it is . . .
fragile and precarious.

For us it’s a transition,
from the old into the new
and we know it will take
a lifetime to get through.

Transformation isn’t always,
an over night occurrence
for most people it is . . .
building up endurance.

For us it’s a slow process,
to keep our faith growing
and we know it will take
perseverance knowing.

Conversion doesn’t always,
happen with speed or quickness
but we know what God begun . . .
when Christ returns He’ll finish!

~~~~~~~~~~

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:

Your Love Lord ~

Lord Your love brings,
my heart tranquil peace
I can feel Your calm
providing me release.

It warms my soul,
my mind it refreshes
all of my concerns
it patiently addresses.

Lord, Your love constantly,
comforts and consoles
my fears and doubts
it curtails and controls.

It generates in me,
a humble restfulness
every time I think  . . .
of Your lowly gentleness.

Lord, Your love brings,
my heart to a swell . . .
just knowing inside of it
is where You dwell!

~~~~~~

1 John 4:16

And we have known and believed
the love that God hath to us.
God is love; and he that
dwelleth in love dwelleth
in God, and God in him.

Jesus’ Healing Touch ~

Jesus’ healing touch,
is just a brush away . . .
when you go to Him
on your knees and pray.

He will touch your heart,
mend the breaks within
put back all the pieces
till a new life begins.

Jesus’ saving touch,
is close and near . . .
He will rid your soul
of all that you fear.

He’ll touch your mind,
restore your sanity
replace your thoughts
with His tranquility.

Jesus’ healing touch
is just a brush away . . .
so give Him your pain
straightaway today!

~~~~~~

1 Peter 2:24

“Who his own self bare our sins
in his own body on the tree,

that we, being dead to sins,
should live unto righteousness:

by whose stripes ye were healed.”

The Bluster of Fluster ~

Some times my joy,
I need to muster . . .
whenever I’m feeling
the bluster of fluster.

For, I can get so caught up,
in the world’s fallen state
that my eternal happiness
from me it starts to shake.

Sometimes my hope,
I need to summon . . .
as I start to feel
downcast and sullen.

For, I can see the darkness,
overshadowing the Light
that my eternal peace
is hard to keep in sight.

Sometimes my faith,
I need to boost and buoy . . .
and so my thoughts, Lord
I just turn over to You!

~~~~~~~~

Philippians 4:8

Finally, brethren, whatsoever things
are true, whatsoever things are honest,
whatsoever things are just, whatsoever
things are pure, whatsoever things
are lovely, whatsoever things are of
good report; if there be any virtue,
and if there be any praise,
think on these things.

The Ocean’s Shore ~

As I stroll along,
the ocean’s shore
I feel blessed
to my very core.

Though I don’t know,
the water’s depth
I’m sure the Lord guides
my every step.

As I listen to,
the waves that roar
I trust God’s Spirit
over storms to soar.

Just as the soft sand,
and sea must meet
I know God’s the strength
beneath my feet.

And unlike a pebble,
in the warm sand
my faith can’t be crushed
by the foot of man.

As I watch the eagles,
land on the dock
I too find safety
in the Lord my Rock!

“A man’s heart deviseth his way:
but the Lord directeth his steps.”

May You Know God’s Fullness ~

May you know the glory,
of God’s richness
may to His power
you be made a witness.

May Christ abide in you,
in faith may you find
His strength that guards
both the heart and mind.

May you be anchored,
in His love entrenched
may your soul to Jesus
remain always clenched.

May you know Jesus’ love,
the vast expanse of it
may your inner man
be filled with His Spirit.

May you be filled fully,
with all of God’s fullness
may you find the wisdom
in knowing His goodness!

~~~~~

Ephesians 3:16-19

That he would grant you,
according to the riches of his glory,
to be strengthened with might by
his Spirit in the inner man;

That Christ may dwell in your
hearts by faith; that ye,
being rooted and grounded in love,

May be able to comprehend with all
saints what is the breadth,
and length, and depth, and height;

And to know the love of Christ,
which passeth knowledge, that
ye might be filled with all
the fulness of God.

My Times Are In Thine Hands ~

My times are in Thine hands,
my God, I wish them there
my life
my hopes
my every dream
are completely in Your care.

My times are in Thine hands,
I give them all to You
my days
my nights
my every tomorrow
are Yours to do what You must do.

My times are in Thine hands,
in all that I do and say
my thoughts
my aspirations
my deepest desires
are Yours to do what You may.

My times are in Thine hands,
to mold as You seem right
my love
my faith
my total trust
are Yours to do as You might.

My times are in Thine hands,
dear Lord, I want them there
my heart
my mind
my soul’s design
are Yours to trim and pare!

Treasures in Jars ~

Treasures in jars,
might be made of clay
but, when they are pressed
close to God they stay.

Oh, they may crack,
but, they will not weaken
for treasures in jars . . .
in God’s power believe in.

Treasures in jars,
they do not crumble
for God makes them
strong and yet humble.

Oh, they may get crushed,
but, they don’t fall apart
for treasures in jars . . .
trust God with all their heart.

Treasures in jars,
are not ever perplexed
for their hope in God
is eternally transfixed!

~~~~~~~

2 Corinthians 4:7-9

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 destroyed;

A Shadow Descends ~

A shadow follows me,
wherever I may go . . .
I see its silhouette
upon morning’s glow.

It shrouds me,
in my Father’s light
it changes not a bit
from day to night.

A shadow falls on me,
from a secret place
from where it comes
back to heaven I trace.

It blankets me,
with wings of love
mercifully spread
by my Father above.

A shadow descends,
a silhouette I see
I know it is God . . .
watching over me!

~~~~~~~~~

Psalm 91:1

He that dwelleth in the secret place
of the most High shall abide under
the shadow of the Almighty.

Psalm 57:1

Be merciful unto me, O God,
be merciful unto me: for my
soul trusteth in thee: yea,
in the shadow of thy wings
will I make my refuge,
until these calamities be
overpast.

From Brokenness to Wholeness ~

In the broken places,
is where Jesus meets us
so we may find the strength
in Him to fully trust.

He is able to see through,
the cracks and holes
for He can look into
the depth of our souls.

In the broken spaces,
of our shattered hearts
Jesus understands
why we’re falling apart.

He knows the anguish,
of our desperation
He gets the despair
in our supplication.

In the broken places,
filled with hopelessness
it’s when Jesus brings us
healing and wholeness!

~~~~~~~

Psalm 147:3

He healeth the broken in heart,
and bindeth up their wounds.

Through Life’s Trials ~

Through life’s many trials,
there can be no denials
for those who in God trust
well knowing He is just.

Victory we can claim,
when we call upon His name
though tested are we still
we yet seek to know His will.

Through life’s tribulations,
come various temptations
for those with a Savior
redeemed by grace and favor.

Victorious we can be,
for God helps us to see
the evil in the darkness
so to flee its wickedness.

Through life’s many upsets,
there can be no regrets . . .
for those who Jesus believe
satan cannot deceive!

~~~~~~~

1 Corinthians 15:57

But thanks be to God,
which giveth us the victory
through our Lord Jesus Christ.

God Is All Around ~

Lord, You are inside me,
You’re in my heart . . .
new mercy each day
You give me to start.

You are over me,
You too are below
on me each morning
blessings You bestow.

Lord, You are around me,
You’re in my mind
every day Your hope
is mine to go find.

Lord, You are beneath me,
You are also above
each day You give me
peace, grace and love.

Lord, You are inside me,
You are beside me too
Your Spirit is in me . . .
and mine is within You!

God Knows My Tomorrow ~

God knows my tomorrow,
He’s planned it out for me
He knows what will happen
before daylight I even see.

I know I can trust Him,
to meet me along the way
tis why I have no fear
when I greet another day.

God knows beforehand,
the challenges I will face
I know He will give me
sufficient amounts of grace.

I believe He will lead me,
on the road He has chosen
I trust He has a purpose
for the path He’s woven.

God knows my tomorrow,
so I will seek Him first thing
for I know not what . . .
He’s considering to bring!

~~~~~~~~~~

Matthew 6:33-34

“But seek ye first the kingdom of God,
and his righteousness; and all these
things shall be added unto you.

Take therefore no thought for the morrow:
for the morrow shall take thought for the
things of itself. Sufficient unto the day
is the evil thereof.

Our Hope On A Rope ~

Jesus is our anchor,
our hope on a rope
He helps us daily
to manage and to cope.

We hold on tightly,
to His sufficient grace
whenever new trials
we may have to face.

Jesus is our tower,
where we safely dock
we know He is to us
our pillar and our Rock.

We cling to Him,
when there’s a storm
He keeps us moored
as our trouble’s form.

Jesus is our anchor,
our pillar and our Rock
He’s our rope of hope
all around the clock!

~~~~~~~~

Hebrews 6:19

Which hope we have
as an anchor of the soul,
both sure and stedfast,
and which entereth into
that within the veil;

With A Heart Wholly ~

Lord, help me to seek,
You whenever I am weak
with a heart wholly
devoted to You solely.

Guide me in Your ways,
the rest of my living days
keep me on the path
leading away from Your wrath.

Lord, help me to be wise,
see things through Your eyes
so I may always know
the worthy way to go.

Help me to be earnest,
in knowing Your purpose
whenever I should doubt
may to You I stay devout.

Lord, help me to seek,
You when things are bleak
give my heart a nudge
so from You I’ll never budge!

Blessed are they that keep
his testimonies, and that seek
him with the whole heart.

On A Roll ~

Hope is the fuel,
of my soul . . .
it keeps my life
in God’s control.

It powers me,
to onward press
gives the oomph
not to stress.

Hope is the fuel,
in my step . . .
it revs my trust
renders me pep.

It propels me,
to safely stay
close to the Truth
the Life and Way.

Hope is the fuel,
of my soul . . .
it keeps my faith
on a constant roll!

Looking for that blessed hope,
and the glorious appearing of
the great God and our
Saviour Jesus Christ;

Putting Faith Into Practice ~

Lord, help me to put,
my faith into practice
so I don’t appear
phony, fake or plastic.

Help me to live,
with hope abounding
so like a skeptic
I am not sounding.

Lord, help me to put,
faith into my behavior
so other’s will see
the love of my Savior.

Help me to perform,
my faith in You out
so I may be a witness
to a world full of doubt.

Lord, let not Your Words,
pass right through my ears
but let them go and do
everything they hear!

~~~~~~

James 1:22

But be ye doers of the word,
and not hearers only,
deceiving your own selves.

Faith Unclouded ~

Faith that is foggy,
makes it hard to find
the road to having
eternal peace of mind.

For, we can’t navigate,
the turns and the bends
unless on Jesus . . .
we learn to depend.

Faith that is misty,
makes it hard to know
how the Holy Spirit
the way out will show.

For we can’t see through,
the haze lying ahead
so that we can be . . .
by Him guided and led.

Faith that is unclouded,
clear and pristine
is faith that believes . . .
beyond things unseen!

~~~~~~

Hebrews 11:1

Now faith is the substance
of things hoped for, the
evidence of things not seen.
