Let Me Carry That For You ~

Let Me carry that for you,
your heavy load give to Me
let Me have all your cares
so you can be burden free.

Give Me all your anguish,
all the pain you still feel
give Me your grief and sorrow
so your heart I can heal.

Let Me take from you,
all that’s weighing on your mind
give Me your troubles
and worries of every kind.

Give Me your tiredness,
the weary beat in your heart
let Me take the stress
that is keeping us apart.

Let Me carry that for you,
in My hand set it here
I will carry that for you . . .
it is mine now to bear!

~~~~~~~~

Matthew 11:29-30

“Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for
I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall
find rest unto your souls. For my yoke is
easy, and my burden is light.”

My Sin ~

My sin,
Jesus’ life
my evil
His strife.

My hope,
Jesus’ death
my trust
His last breath.

My peace,

My light,
Jesus’ way
my soul
His today.

My heart,
Jesus’ home
my future
in Him alone!

Embracing The New ~

Embracing the new,
getting rid of the old
is freeing and liberating
makes us for Jesus bold.

It’s finally saying goodbye,
to former desires
and letting the Holy Spirit
ignite into our souls a fire.

Taking off the weight,
of spiritual depression
allows Jesus to make
a lasting impression.

It’s doing away with self,
and letting Jesus in
it’s going out everyday
not falling back into sin.

Doing away with the old,
for what is new . . .
is letting Jesus become
a part of you!

~~~~~~~~~

2 Corinthians 5:17

Therefore if any man be in Christ,
he is a new creature: old things

Your Rapturous Love ~

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

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

Life Without Jesus ~

You may have breath,
your heart may beat
but, you don’t have Life
until Jesus you meet.

You may have sight,
your eyes may perceive
but, you don’t have Life
if in God you don’t believe.

You may have reason,
your ears may detect
but, you don’t have Life
if Jesus you reject.

You may have vitality,
your body may go
but, you don’t have Life
until Jesus you know.

You may have breath,
but, you don’t have Life
for without Jesus . . .
there’s only eternal strife!

~~~~~~~~~

1 John 5:11-12

“And this is the record,
that God hath given to
us eternal life, and
this life is in his Son.

and he that hath not the Son
of God hath not life.”

Jesus My Peace ~

Jesus is my Peace,
my hope’s assurance
He is my calm
giving me endurance.

Jesus is my love,
my faith’s objective
He is my purpose
giving me perspective.

Jesus is my anchor,
my trust’s serenity
He is my Rock
giving me tranquility.

Jesus is my Advocate,
my sin absorber
He is my Refuge
giving me a safe harbor.

Jesus is my peace,
my happy ever after
Jesus is to me . . .
all that really matters!

Put Jesus First ~

When you put Jesus,
first on your list
there He will be
right in the midst.

For when you meet,
with Jesus each day
He will by your side
unfailingly stay.

When you make Jesus,
your top priority
His Word you will keep
with all authority.

For when Jesus is taken,
more seriously
the more you will train
for the race rigorously.

When you trust Jesus,
fully and completely
you will go to Him
each day more routinely!

Don’t Be Offended ~

When you find yourself,
for Jesus being mocked
and your faith in God
is always getting knocked.

Don’t be offended,
by what people might do
rather let God’s peace
be what they see in you.

When you find yourself,
endlessly put down
and you’re tormented
for the truth you found.

Don’t be taken back,
by what people say
rather let Jesus help you
to show them the way.

When you’re attacked,
for your Godly belief . . .
don’t let it cause you
one iota of grief!

and ye shall hold your peace.

Jesus Is The Only One ~

Jesus Your light is,
the only One that can
break through the stone
in the heart of man.

For it can shatter,
the cold and icy frost
and bring the ungodly
to the foot of the cross.

Jesus Your light bursts.
the darkness right apart
taking down the barriers
inside of man’s heart.

For it can obliterate,
the evil and corruption
saving the heart of man
from eternal destruction.

Jesus You alone are . . .
the only One who can
breach into the darkness
of the heart of man!

~~~~~~~~

Call Upon Jesus ~

When your joy is robbed,
by the events of life
when they steal your hope
leaving you only strife.

Call upon Jesus,
for a change of heart
and His perfect peace
into it He’ll impart.

When you are buried,
deep in despair
when overwhelmed
by all your care.

Call upon Jesus,
for a change of mind
and His gentle love
you will surely find.

When your world,
comes crumbling down
call upon Jesus . . .
and your joy will rebound!

flow right out of Him.

He is my absolute
for God’s tender mercy
in me He imputes.

Jesus is my grace,
He is my true salvation
for God suffered Him
to save me from damnation.

Jesus is my hope,
He is my Lord and Life
for God sent Him
to take Himself my strife.

Jesus is my yes,
He is my hallelujah Amen . . .
all my faith and trust
I put into God and Him!

Rock Bottom ~

Hitting rock bottom
having a hard time
thinking not another
mountain to climb?

Well, don’t you ever forget,
just who is your Rock
or who over that mountain
will help you to walk.

Up against a rock,
and a hard place
thinking you should
just quit the race?

Well don’t you give up,
hold on to the Rock
and through that valley
He will help you walk.

Having a hard time,
in your faithful walk?
Well don’t you forget
Jesus is your Rock!

1 Corinthians 10:4

“And did all drink
the same spiritual drink:

Eternal Grief ~

I could read everything offered,
on religion and theology
but, if I don’t believe in Jesus
it would all just be garbology.

I could study every book,
written by man on his thought
but, if I don’t believe in Jesus
all I’ve gleaned will be for naught.

I could go to a university,
cram long into the dead of night
but, if I don’t believe in Jesus
I will never see the True Light.

I could take tests and exams,
to see what I’ve learned
but, if I don’t believe in Jesus
in hell I’ll forever burn.

I could read everything offered,
by man about his belief . . .
but, if I don’t believe in Jesus
I’ll just end up with eternal grief!

“For I determined not
to know any thing among you,

Joyful Are We ~

Joyful are we,
who are saved by grace
who Jesus’ love
our hearts embrace.

Happy are we,
who trust in the Lord
who know His peace
will be our reward.

Blessed are we,
who hope in a future
where Jesus will be
our King and ruler.

Grateful are we,
who in faith believe
the Spirit of Jesus
is ours to receive.

Joyful are we,
who know God’s favor
who believe Jesus is
our risen Savior!

~~~~~~

of our Lord Jesus Christ,
which according to his abundant

Never Forgotten ~

When your friends,
have moved on . . .
and your family
is all but gone.

let you down.

When You find,
yourself all alone
sitting in . . .
your lonesome home.

Know there is someone,
who’ll never leave
and onto Him
you can always cleave.

When you feel as if,
you’ve been deserted
and with thought’s lonely
you’re being bombarded.

Know that you are,
never truly forgotten
for, Jesus forsakes not
those downtrodden!

Jesus’s blood,
washed over me
giving me a life . . .
now sin free!

And hath made us kings
and priests unto God
and his Father;
to him be glory
and dominion
for ever and ever.”

I saw on Jesus’ face.

Jesus Prays For Us ~

When my words,
I cannot form
and to God my pleas
I cannot inform.

That’s when Jesus,
steps right in
with moans coming
from deep within.

When I can’t even,
begin to pray
all though I have
a lot to say.

That’s when Jesus,
for me advocates
and my prayers to God
He formulates.

When my words,
can’t form my needs
that’s when Jesus . . .
for me intercedes!

Lean ~

Some days when I feel,
I’ve lost faith’s composure
I stop and lean closer
on my Savior’s shoulder.

I lay my head there,
letting it rest for a while
until my trust in Him
I once again compile.

Some days when I feel,
tired and down right beat
I stop and lean closer
to my Savior’s feet.

It’s there were I lay,
my burden and my care
until unto my hope
I’m again made aware.

Some days when I feel,
I’m about to fall apart . . .
I stop and lean closer
to my Savior’s heart!

When God Looks Down ~

When God looks down,
on us He sees . . .
the work of His Son
and not our sleaze.

He sees beyond,
our sinful lusts
for He sees His Son
in whom He trusts.

For God gave His Son,
the gift of life . . .
for He knew with sin
we’d always have strife.

He sees the grace,
of a dying Savior
mixed with His mercy
pity and favor.

When God looks down,
at every one
He sees our worth
through His Son!

hope is found
I know in Him

is alive and well
