Pieces of Graces ~

Each morning as I awake,
Jesus is waiting for me . . .
I sense His very presence
though His person I can’t see.

An endless supply of mercy,
greets me upon the break of day
as pieces of His grace descends
for me to reap along my way.

Each day there is an assurance,
my burden’s He will bear
for I know Jesus is here with me
though I don’t see Him there.

His peace is all surrounding,
it engulfs my heart and soul
all of my worries and fears
He comforts and consoles.

Each morning when I awake,
I feel a sense of conforming
though Jesus I cannot see . . .
His love for me is confirming!

~~~~~~~

Psalm 143:8

Cause me to hear thy lovingkindness
in the morning; for in thee do I trust:
cause me to know the way wherein I
should walk; for I lift up my soul
unto thee.

Faith Swells ~

Faith rises,
in the waves
for our Savior
we know will save.

Then when life,
comes crashing down
in troubles waters
we will not drown.

Faith swells,
in the surges
where hope in God
onward urges.

Then when challenges,
are all surrounding
our confidence
will keep abounding.

Faith rises,
above the swells
it comes from where
the Holy Spirit dwells!

~~~~~~~~

Matthew 14:30-31

But when he saw the wind boisterous,
he was afraid; and beginning to sink,
he cried, saying, Lord, save me.

And immediately Jesus stretched forth
his hand, and caught him, and said
unto him, O thou of little faith,
wherefore didst thou doubt?

Psalm 107:29

He maketh the storm a calm,
so that the waves thereof
are still.

A Cheery Giver~

God loves a giver,
cheerful and cheery
He loves when we help
the weak and weary.

He loves a donor,
who gives freely
in the name of Jesus
gifts of charity.

God loves a giver,
happy and joyful
He loves when we aid
the poor and woeful.

He loves a supplier,
without any strings
for they seek no return
for the gifts they bring.

God loves a giver,
cheery and cheerful
He loves seeing us give
with a heart joyful!

~~~~~~~

2 Corinthians 9:7

Every man according as he purposeth
in his heart, so let him give; not
grudgingly, or of necessity:
for God loveth a cheerful giver.

Acts 20:35

I have shewed you all things,
how that so labouring ye ought
to support the weak, and to
remember the words of the
Lord Jesus, how he said,
It is more blessed to give
than to receive.

Mercy and Truth Merges ~

Mercy and truth have merged,
redemption found on the cross
righteousness and peace kissed
God’s justice cleanses the dross.

Truth was raised from the earth,
from death came resurrection
eternal life rose from the grave
bringing to God reconciliation.

Love looked down from above,
forgiveness imparted to each soul
hope shall make way for His steps
so in Him all can be made whole.

For those who are beholden,
to the Life, Truth and the Way
will jubilantly celebrate
with Jesus in heaven one day.

Mercy and truth came together,
righteousness and peace have kissed
all who by grace through faith believe
will have glorious, eternal bliss!

~~~~~~~~~

Psalm 85:10-12

“Mercy and truth
are met together;

righteousness and peace
have kissed each other.

Truth shall spring
out of the earth;

and righteousness shall
look down from heaven.”

The Tone of Faith ~

The tone of faith,
rings out loud and clear
for it sings out . . .
today my Lord is near.

The tempo of hope,
has it’s own unique beat
for it sings out . . .
today with You I’ll meet.

The melody of trust,
is sung with joy and glee
for it sings out . . .
today I’ll follow Thee.

The rhythm of love,
is overflowing in praise
for is sings out . . .
today my thanks I’ll raise.

The song of faith,
is composed of . . .
hope, trust and praise
for God’s great love!

~~~~~~

Psalm 40:3

And he hath put a new song
in my mouth, even praise
unto our God: many shall
see it, and fear, and shall
trust in the Lord.

Ephesians 5:19

Speaking to yourselves in psalms
and hymns and spiritual songs,
singing and making melody in your
heart to the Lord;

Imperfect Me ~

In a world that is filled,
with so much turbulence
it hard to find peace . . .
of any permanence.

But, God’s perfect love,
flows into imperfect me
helping me to be . . .
chaos and havoc free.

In a world that is full,
of upheaval and unrest
it hard to be calm . . .
and not be stressed.

But, God’s mercy anew,
flows into unworthy me
helping me to be
fervor and frenzy free.

In a world that is filled,
with so much instability
I’m so thankful Jesus gives . . .
grateful me ~ stability!

~~~~~~~~~

Romans 3:23

For all have sinned,
and come short of
the glory of God;

John 16:33

These things I have spoken unto you,
that in me ye might have peace.
In the world ye shall have tribulation:
but be of good cheer;
I have overcome the world.

God Does the Unfeasible ~

God does the impossible,
when He desires, when He wants to
He can do the unfeasible
in the lives of me and you.

He can change the stoniest heart,
turn it into one of flesh
reshape it until with His own
the two of them begin to mesh.

God does the unthinkable,
when He needs, when He deems
He can do the improbable
with His mercy that redeems.

He can take the most blinded,
and give them eyes to believe
the love and grace of His Son
so salvation they’ll receive.

God does the impossible,
when He opts, when He decides
He can do the unachievable
in those who in Him abide!

~~~~~~~

Luke 1:37

For with God
nothing shall be
impossible.

Jeremiah 32:17

Ah Lord God! behold,
thou hast made the heaven
and the earth by thy great
power and stretched out arm,
and there is nothing too
hard for thee:

Strength In Weakness ~

Weakness allows in us,
Jesus’ strength to flow
it makes us meek
so His power we’ll know.

It makes us proclaim,
when I’m weak I’m strong
it makes our faith firm
when trials come along.

Weakness allows in us,
Jesus’ grace to be
sufficient each day
for everything we need.

It helps us to endure,
the tests and the trials
for His grace is the key
to our spiritual vitals.

Our weakness keeps,
Jesus’ grace moving . . .
so His strength in us
can continue improving!

~~~~~~~

2 Corinthians 12:9

And he said unto me,
My grace is sufficient for thee:
for my strength is made perfect
in weakness. Most gladly therefore
will I rather glory in my infirmities,
that the power of Christ may rest upon me.

Jesus Our Teacher ~

Jesus is our teacher,
we learn from Him daily
how to live our lives
fearlessly and bravely.

He leads and shows us,
how we should pray
when we need His help
throughout the day.

Jesus is our role model,
of how we need to live
for He shows us how
we can love and forgive.

He gives us the faith,
to believe in His grace
so we can remain strong
in the faithful race.

Jesus is our teacher,
to God our One connector
He is our faith’s . . .
generator and perfecter!

~~~~~~~~

John 3:2

“The same came to Jesus by night,
and said unto him, Rabbi, we know
that thou art a teacher come from God:
for no man can do these miracles that
thou doest, except God be with him.

Hebrews 12:2

“Looking unto Jesus the author
and finisher of our faith;
who for the joy that was set
before him endured the cross,
despising the shame, and is set
down at the right hand of the
throne of God.”

With Arms Stretched Wide ~

When I begin my day,
my arms I stretch wide
and pray to the Lord
today please be my guide.

I know it’s for my best,
for me to seek Him first
so after righteousness
until the night I’ll thirst.

As I go about the day,
my hands I stretch open
and I pray to the Lord
with words unspoken.

His Spirit speaks to me,
for He knows I hunger
to finish the race . . .
as a faithful runner.

When from the day I retire,
I stretch my arms out in bed
and pray that tomorrow . . .
I’ll continue to be Spirit led!

~~~~~

Psalm 143:6

I stretch forth my hands
unto thee: my soul thirsteth
after thee, as a thirsty land.

The Righteous Hands Of God ~

God hands are righteous,
mighty and powerful
they’re loving and kind
and oh, so merciful.

His hands laid out,
the earth’s foundation
preparing the way
for eternal salvation.

His hands upholds,
those who are afraid
so they needn’t be
fearful or dismayed.

His hands are strong,
they provide protection
to those who seek
wisdom and direction.

His hands are etched,
with the names of those
who through grace by faith
redemption in Jesus choose.

Out of God’s hands,
no one can be snatched
for onto our souls . . .
His fingers are latched!

~~~~~~

Isaiah 41:10

Fear thou not; for I am with thee:
be not dismayed; for I am thy God:
I will strengthen thee; yea, I will help
thee; yea, I will uphold thee with the
right hand of my righteousness.

Isaiah 49:16

Behold, I have graven thee
upon the palms of my hands; t
hy walls are continually before me.

And I give unto them eternal life;
and they shall never perish,
neither shall any man pluck them
out of my hand.

The Grace of Jesus ~

The grace of Jesus,
was given freely . . .
to all of mankind
proportionally.

God measured out,
faith to everyone
so we all could be
saved by His Son.

The grace of Jesus,
will keep us humble
lest over our egos
we’ll surely stumble.

God wants us to be,
sober and sincere
for He sees right through
our narcissistic veneer.

The grace of Jesus,
can’t be taken for granted
lest we may become . . .
with ourselves enchanted!

~~~~~

Romans 12:3

For I say, through the grace
given unto me, to every man
that is among you, not to think
of himself more highly than
he ought to think; but to think
soberly, according as God hath
dealt to every man the
measure of faith.

Depressurize ~

When I feel the need,
to depressurize . . .
I shut my mouth
and close my eyes.

For when I am still,
I can decompress
and think about why
I’m so very blessed.

When I feel the need,
to completely unwind
I open up my heart
and shut down my mind.

For when I’m at rest,
God can release
into my soul
His perfect peace.

When I feel the need,
to depressurize . . .
it’s so God’s calm in me
He can internalize!

~~~~~~~~

Colossians 3:15

And let the peace of God
rule in your hearts,
to the which also ye are
called in one body;
and be ye thankful.

Can You Hear Me Now ~

Sometimes I can’t hear,
what God has to say . . .
those whispers into my ears
do not make their way.

That tranquil voice is drowned,
by all the noise pollution
making it hard with God
to hold a conversation.

Sometimes that small hush,
can’t be heard over the uproar
and those quiet little breaths
I find are so easy to ignore.

That unseen presence,
can’t get my full attention
for so many things . . .
have become a distraction.

Sometimes I hear God say,
Can you hear me now?
and I answer Him honestly . . .
please show me again just how!

~~~~~~~

1 Kings 19:12

And after the earthquake a fire;
but the Lord was not in the fire:
and after the fire a still small voice.

The Wonders Of Jesus ~

Lord, the first thing,
that’s stopping You . . .
is my lack of faith
in what You can do.

I know You can part seas,
walk on them too
and for me miracles
You also want to do.

Lord, the other thing,
that’s blocking You
is my lack of trust
to follow through.

I know You’ll give me,
the strength I need
as long as I let . . .
the Holy Spirit lead.

Lord, there is one thing,
imperative for me to do . . .
and that is to keep believing
in the wonders of You!

~~~~~~~~

Acts 4:30

By stretching forth thine hand to heal;
and that signs and wonders may be done
by the name of thy holy child Jesus.

Psalm 77:14

Thou art the God that doest wonders:
thou hast declared thy strength
among the people.

In Jesus’ Name ~

There is no prayer too big,
none that are too small
for God through Jesus
promises to hear them all.

We can bring to God,
our every daily care
we can go right to Him
with whatever is our prayer.

There is no request too great,
none that are too minimal
for our supplications to God
Jesus made for us possible.

We can go to God,
no matter the time of day
He is always ready
to hear the prayers we say.

There is no prayer too big,
none that are too small
for God hears every one
when on Jesus name we call!

~~~~~~~~

1 Timothy 2:5

For there is one God,
and one mediator between
God and men,
the man Christ Jesus;

Feeling Sluggish~

Feeling sluggish,
in a slump . . .
can’t seem to get
over that hump?

Then turn to Jesus,
so He can restore
your joy and strength
just as before.

Feeling blah,
a little lackluster
daily fortitude
you can’t muster?

Then take a hold,
of God’s mighty hand
so He can help you
rise up and stand.

Feeling dull,
lost your sharpness
then God’s power . . .
you’ll need to harness!

~~~~~~

Ephesians 6:10

Finally, my brethren,
be strong in the Lord,
and in the power of his might.

Peter 5:6

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

I Have God’s Power ~

I have God’s power,
it’s right inside of me
it blesses me with faith
for things I can’t see.

It dissipates the doubt,
evaporates the fear
it allows me to believe
my God is always near.

I have God’s power,
He gave it to me the day
when to His Son . . .
I gave my heart away.

It lifted the darkness,
revealing His True Light
giving me the ability
to trust in His holy might.

I have God’s power,
to believe without seeing
it fills me with such hope
tis why it’s so freeing!

~~~~~~

Ephesians 1:19

And what is the exceeding
greatness of his power to
us-ward who believe,
according to the working
of his mighty power

Pressure Cooker Faith ~

Pressure cooker faith,
always in a hurry . . .
often blows a gasket
in its frenzy flurry.

Frantic and strained,
always under duress
pressure cooker faith
holds inside a lot stress.

Pressure cooker faith,
full of nervousness
bursting at the seams
in the stew anxiousness.

Strives so very hard,
to control its composure
pressure cooker faith
can’t help but boiler over.

Pressure cooker faith,
always ready to blow
needs inside instead . . .
God’s peace to flow!

~~~~~~

2 Thessalonians 3:16

Now the Lord of peace himself

The Lord be with you all.

Stand Your Ground ~

Hold on fast,
stand your ground
from your faith
don’t back down.

Then when attacked,
for just believing
the truth will keep . .
you from retreating.

Be consistent,
sustain your footing
in God’s Word keep
your trust putting.

Then when faced,
with opposition
your armor will be
in prime condition.

Hold on fast,
defend your position
then stand your ground
on your convictions!

~~~~~~~~

2 Samuel 23:12

But he stood in the midst of the ground,
and defended it, and slew the Philistines:
and the Lord wrought a great victory.

Ephesians 6:13

Wherefore take unto you the whole
armour of God, that ye may be able
to withstand in the evil day,
and having done all, to stand.

Out of Sync ~

Sometimes with God,
I feel out of sync . . .
it’s like there is some
kind of missing link.

It feels as though,
our wires are crossed
and my link to Him
is temporarily lost.

Sometimes with God,
there is a disconnect
its like our lines . . .
no longer intersect.

If feels as though,
we no longer interface
and my gateway to Him
is lost in cyberspace.

Sometimes with God,
I feel we don’t compute
so I go into His Word . . .
and generate a reboot!

~~~~~~~~

Psalm 73:28

But it is good for me to draw
near to God: I have put my
trust in the Lord God, that
I may declare all thy works.

Psalm 51:10

Create in me a clean heart,
O God; and renew a right
spirit within me.

Bonding ~

God speaks in the silence,
of each morning’s dawn
He beckons to me . . .
to be willingly drawn.

He awakens my senses,
to His voice oh, so quiet
so my ears can be open
to His guiding Spirit.

God speaks in the hush,
of a gentle wind blowing
with the promise His will
I can be knowing.

He invites me to lean,
into the stillness
so I can be filled
with all of His fullness.

God speaks ever quietly,
upon morn’s dawning
so throughout the day . . .
we can keep bonding!

~~~~~~~

Isaiah 50:4

The Lord God hath given me the
tongue of the learned, that I+
should know how to speak a word
in season to him that is weary:
he wakeneth morning by morning,
he wakeneth mine ear to hear
as the learned.

Sandpaper Christians ~

Sandpaper Christians,
grate on your nerves . . .
their abrasive thoughts
they don’t conserve.

Raspy and rough,
full of harshness
need God to replace
their heart of hardness.

Sandpaper Christians,
rub the wrong way
thinking not before
the words they say.

Like an emery board,
that’s lost its grit
forget they are filled
with the Holy Spirit.

Sandpaper Christians,
gruff and so bold
need to learn just how
their peace to hold.

Outspoken and snarly,
their words are brutal
need to seek how to make
their lips more fruitful.

Sandpaper Christians,
on the nerves grate . . .
need God’s wisdom
to set them straight!

Soar~

Eagles wings,
oh, how they soar
above the world’s
menacing roar.

Glide in faith,
on the air of trust
grows not weary
against the thrust.

Eagles wings,
strong and sure
torrid weather
they do endure.

Fainting not,
upon resistance
fly on hope
to go the distance.

Eagles wings,
mount and rise
above the fear . . .
before their eyes!

~~~~~~

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.

God Is Mightier ~

God is mightier than the battle,
you are facing right now . . .
He’s greater than your struggle
your defeat He won’t allow.

For His peace will overrule,
all your inner conflict
and His mercy will surpass
the hurt life can inflict.

God is stronger than the burden,
that is weighing you down
He’s more powerful than the storm
that’s swirling all around.

His balm is ever soothing,
it will heal all of your pain
His touch is life transforming
when in His hands you remain.

God is mightier than the battle,
that today you have to face
His sufficiency is copious
for abundant is His grace!

~~~~~~~~

“The Lord on high is mightier
than the noise of many waters,
