Your Wall Will Fall ~

Your wall will come down,
it too can fall
if on God’s power
you willingly call.

Your wall will crumble,
it too can come apart
it you trust God
with all your soul and heart.

Your wall will topple,
it too can collapse
if you will give God
your circumstance.

Your wall will weaken,
it too can flatten out
if you give to God
all your fear and doubt.

Your wall will fall,
it too will be demolished
if you believe God . . .
anything can be accomplished!

~~~~~~~~

Joshua 6:20

“So the people shouted when
the priests blew with the trumpets:
and it came to pass, when the people
heard the sound of the trumpet,
and the people shouted with a great shout,
that the wall fell down flat,
so that the people went up into the city,
every man straight before him,
and they took the city.”

My Foot Has Slipped ~

My foot has slipped,
more than I can tally
on mountain tops
or while in a valley.

But no matter where,
I would slip
Jesus on me
always had a grip.

My foot has skidded,
time and time again
it’s plunged into
treacherous terrain.

But, no matter when,
I would slide
Jesus was always
at my side.

My foot has slipped,
down many slopes
but, by the grace of God
I never lost my hope!

~~~~~~~~

Psalm 94:18

“When I said, My foot slippeth;
thy mercy, O Lord, held me up.”

Eternally Secured ~

You may try,
but, I can’t be moved
for my soul to Jesus
is irreversibly glued.

You may attempt,
but, I can’t be pried
for my heart to Jesus
is indefinitely tied.

You may endeavor,
but, I won’t be persuaded
for my life to Jesus
is securely barricaded.

You may aspire,
but, I cannot be lured
for my mind to Jesus
is eternally secured.

You may try,
every trick in the book
but my soul to Jesus . . .
is permanently hooked!

~~~~~~~

Psalm 62:1-2

“Truly my soul waiteth upon God:
from him cometh my salvation.
“He only is my rock and my salvation;
he is my defence;
I shall not be greatly moved.”

A Warm Summer Day ~

Give me a warm summer day,
a cool breeze on my face
and I’ll tell you all about . . .
my Father’s mercy and grace.

For when I’m basking in,
the warmth of His love
I find myself engulfed
in His peace from above.

Give me a long lazy day,
with nothing else to do
and I’ll tell you just how
Jesus making all things new.

For when I’m just chilling,
His favor consumes me
and all I can think about
are the things I can’t see.

Give me a warm summer day,
far from the heat of things
and I’ll tell you all about . . .
the hope my Savior brings!

Song of Solomon 1:7

“Tell me, O thou whom my soul loveth,
where thou feedest, where thou makest
thy flock to rest at noon:

Faith Like Jesus ~

I want to be like Jesus,
in every single way
I want His life to be
part of me every day.

I want to be full of light,
not dull and lifeless
I want the trust Jesus had
to be my daily focus.

I want to be humble,
not fearful and weak
I want Jesus’ strength
each day of the week.

I want to be joyful,
not bitter and resentful
I want Jesus’ life in mine
day-by-day to resemble.

I want to beat the desert heat,
to calm the storms at sea
I want the faith Jesus had
day-to-day inside of me!

~~~~~~~~

Romans 3:22

“Even the righteousness of God
which is by faith of Jesus Christ
unto all and upon all them
that believe: for there is
no difference:

Jesus, My Rock ~

Jesus, my Rock
my salvation, my refuge
with You there is peace
under worries deluge.

You are my strength,
when my own is spent
in You there’s safety
from all that torments.

My God, My Rock,
shield me from evil
protect me from
the world’s upheaval.

Be my earthly guide,
let me not fall prey
to satan’s deceitfulness
and his unrighteous way.

Jesus, My Rock,
on You I will depend
to keep me sheltered
until You come again!

~~~~~~

Psalm 62:7

“In God is my salvation
and my glory:
the rock of my strength,
and my refuge, is in God.”

The Hand of God ~

Sometimes my heart,
seems to just melt
when upon it . . .
the hand of God is felt.

His love for me,
defrosts the icy parts
as mercy and grace
into it He imparts.

Some times my mind,
just simply evaporates
when in it . . .
the hand of God penetrates.

The hope He has for me,
keeps me before Him humble
causing my pride an ego
to dissolve into a puddle.

Sometimes my heart,
and my mind liquidate . . .
when the hand of God
on them permeate!

~~~~~

1 Peter 5.6

“Humble yourselves therefore
under the mighty hand of God,
that he may exalt you in due time:

Faith Muscles ~

If we’re to have,
spiritual grit . . .
we must keep
our faith muscle fit.

God’s Word we must engage,
so trust can develop
then joy, peace and hope
our lives will envelop.

If we’re to be,
spiritually strong . . .
we’ll need to stop doing
what we know is wrong.

We’ll need to workout,
the sin that is hidden
and to all of our idols
we must say good-ridden.

The muscle of our faith,
we all need to exercise
for it is the very heart . . .
of our eternal prize!

~~~~~~~

1 Timothy 4:8

“For bodily exercise profiteth little:
but godliness is profitable unto
all things, having promise of the
life that now is, and of that which
is to come.”

It’s No Snap ~

It isn’t easy,
this being strong
it’s really hard
when all’s going wrong.

It isn’t a snap,
this having courage
it’s difficult
not getting discouraged.

It isn’t comfortable,
this waiting and waiting
it’s laborious
to keep from fainting.

It isn’t painless,
this being perfectly still
it’s grueling
finding out God’s will.

But those who take heart,
to God’s timing
on eagle’s wings
you’ll find soaring!

~~~~~~~~

Psalm 27:14

“Wait on the Lord:
be of good courage,
and he shall strengthen
thine heart: wait,
I say, on the Lord.”

Get God Involved ~

So often we have problems,
we try to fix alone . . .
when what we should do
is take them to the throne.

We know that in God,
we need to place our trust
but when troubles come
this doesn’t resonate in us.

So we think we’ve the power,
our worries we can overcome
and doing things ourselves
becomes the rule of thumb.

We know Jesus said,
our burden’s He would bear
and instead of letting go
we hold on to our care.

We set out our anchor,
in the sea of faithlessness
making for ourselves
an even bigger mess.

So often we have problems,
alone we try to resolve . . .
when we should be asking
for God to get involved!

~~~~~~~~

Psalm 55:22

“Cast thy burden upon the Lord,
and he shall sustain thee:
he shall never suffer the
righteous to be moved.”

Soaring On Eagle Wings ~

We all fly on,
broken wings
we all cry over
lost things.

We all fall,
into despair
we all think
no one cares.

We all lose,
our way
we all feel
not another day.

We all fight,
with unrest
we all try
to do our best.

But we who fly,
on eagle wings
can soar . . .
above these things!

~~~~~~

Isaiah 40:31

“But they that wait upon the Lord
shall renew their strength;
they shall mount up with
wings as eagles; they shall run,
and not be weary;
and they shall walk,
and not faint.”

Blessed Are Those Who Trust ~

Blessed are those,
whose trust is sure
who in the Lord
their faith’s secure.

They wait on the Lord,
they do not faint
they run the race
without complaint.

Blessed are those,
who are pure and meek
they know it’s God
they must first seek.

They are strong,
they are brave
they are known
by the way they behave.

Blessed are those,
whose hope is based
on their faith in Jesus
and His saving grace!

~~~~~~~~~

Jeremiah 17:7-8

“Blessed is the man
who trusts in the Lord,
whose trust is the Lord.

But they that wait upon the
Lord shall renew their strength;
they shall mount up with wings
as eagles; they shall run,
and not be weary; and they
shall walk, and not faint.”

For Those Who Love God ~

For those who love God,
we know He is working
His purpose in our lives
for the good He’s preparing.

He uses our weary moans,
and our thankful sighs
He uses our lowest lows
and our highest highs.

For those who love God,
we know there’s a reason
we know He is working
in us in every season.

He uses the sunny days,
and long stormy nights
He uses the dark times
and the one shining bright.

For those who love God,
we know He has a purpose
for with a great price . . .
our lives He has purchased!

~~~~~~

Romans 8:28

“And we know that all things
work together for good
to them that love God,
to them who are the called
according to his purpose.”

A Heavenly Conversation ~

Today I decided,
to have a conversation
with God in heaven
about His expectations.

So I inquired of Him,
what He wanted from me
He responded simply with
believe in what you can’t see.

As we continued to converse,
I told Him about my fears
He said keep to trusting Him
for in heaven there’s no tears.

I asked Him how in paradise,
with Him I could forever be
He said by the grace of His Son
and the faith dwelling inside me.

Today God and I,
had an honest discussion
and to His kingdom . . .
He gave me the instructions!

~~~~~~~~

Philippians 3:20

“For our conversation is in heaven;
from whence also we look
for the Saviour,
the Lord Jesus Christ:”

Pit Dwelling ~

When in the pits,
don’t stay there
get right out
so not to despair.

For pit dwelling,
will cause bitterness
and God’s blessings
you’ll surely miss.

When in the dumps,
don’t stay down
pull yourself out
lest in pity you drown.

For dump diving,
is a pit’s best friend
and is no place God
wants you to spend.

When in the pits
or down in the dumps
let your praise to God
give your faith a jump!

~~~~~~

Psalm 40:2

“He brought me up also out
of an horrible pit, out
of the miry clay,
and set my feet upon a rock,
and established my goings.”

Jesus Is Waiting ~

When your heart is heavy,
when it’s weighted down
when hopelessness has . . .
your faith tied and bound.

Know Jesus hears,
your cries of despair
and He’s waiting for you
to give Him your care.

When your eyes are filled,
with nothing but tears
when your heart pounds
with the beat of your fears.

Know Jesus sees,
each streak on your face
and He’s waiting for you
to seek more of His grace.

When your hopes,
have all but crashed
and your dreams
have been dashed.

Know Jesus knows,
your disappointment
and His love for you
is your healing ointment!

~~~~~~~~

John 15:13

“Greater love
hath no man than this,
that a man lay down
his life for his friends.”

This Is My Hope ~

This is my hope,
this is it for me
this is my eyes set
on what I can’t see.

This is my desire,
this is all I need
that’s why to Jesus
my life I now heed.

This is my faith,
this is all I got
this is my belief
Jesus my sins bought.

This is my trust,
this is my take
Jesus died and rose
for my soul’s sake.

This is my hope,
it can be yours too
when you ask Jesus . . .
to dwell inside of you!

~~~~~

Hebrews 11:1

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

Tranquil Trust ~

Peaceful rest,
tranquil trust
is what Jesus
gives to us.

Putting our cares,
into His heart
so hope in ours
He can impart.

Blissful serenity,
calm’s quietness
is what Jesus
provides for us.

Giving our fears,
over to Him
so joy can fill
us to the brim.

Peaceful hearts,
tranquil minds
is what Jesus
wants us to find!

Proverbs 3:5

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

Onward Pressing ~

The sea of faith,
has its up and downs
but, I know for a fact
in it I’ll not drown.

For I keep holding on,
to the cross of grace
knowing with Jesus
any storm I can face.

The sea of faith,
has its highs and lows
but I don’t worry
I go where it flows.

For I keep anchored,
in God’s Word each day
to keep me steady
for what comes my way.

The sea of faith,
can be distressing
but Jesus keeps me . . .
onward pressing!

~~~~~~

Hebrews 11:29

“By faith they passed through
the Red sea as by dry land:
which the Egyptians assaying
to do were drowned.”

Crumbs ~

Crumbs,
morsels of hope
for us to spread
all over the globe.

Crumbs,
little bits of peace
for us to scatter
and daily release.

Crumbs,
scrapes of light
for us to sow
to give new sight.

Crumbs,
shreds of what we believe
so the Good News
others can receive.

Crumbs,
put them all together
oh what a great harvest
we could truly gather!

Remote Places ~

Into remote places,
Jesus goes with us
to teach us to pray
so in Him we may trust.

There with Him at our side,
while on bended knee
He gives us more faith
in what we cannot see.

Into barren places,
deep within our soul
Jesus persuades us
to give Him control.

There with Him at His feet,
in the depth of our despair
He shows us how to give
to Him our every care.

Into desolate places,
with Jesus we go . . .
so we can pray His will
we may come to know!

~~~~~

Mark 1:35

And in the morning,
rising up a great while before day,
he went out, and departed into a
solitary place, and there prayed.

When Feeling Humdrum ~

When you feel discouraged,
and your faith feels dull
before hopelessness
sinks into your skull.

Fill your mind with Jesus,
all that He did for you
and you’ll see helplessness
from another point of view.

When you feel disheartened,
and you faith feels drab
before disenchantment
your heart from God’s grabs.

Fill your mind with Jesus,
let all His words sink in
and you’ll see desperation
differently though Him.

When your faith feels blah,
and you’re feeling humdrum
fill you mind with Jesus . . .
for a hopeful outcome!

~~~~~~~~

1 Peter 1:13

“Wherefore gird up the loins of your mind,
be sober, and hope to the end for the grace
that is to be brought unto you at the revelation
of Jesus Christ;”

God’s Timing ~

God’s timing,
is always the best
on this truth . . .
we need to find rest.

For when God does,
a new thing in our life
it’s to bless us
not add to our strife.

God’s timing,
can be so very slow
understanding why
we may never know.

But as we wait,
God will encourage us
to find the strength
in Him to trust.

God’s timing,
can never be wrong
and it’s up to us . . .
to keep our faith strong!

~~~~~~~~

Isaiah 43:19

“Behold, I will do a new thing;
now it shall spring forth;
shall ye not know it?
I will even make a way
in the wilderness,
and rivers in the desert.”

Micah 7:7

“Therefore I will look
unto the Lord;
I will wait for the God
of my salvation:
my God will hear me.”
