Deliverance ~

Deliverance,
atonement for sin
forgiveness divine
new life to begin.

Cancellation of debt,
remembering no more
new heart given to all
at salvation’s Door.

Redemption,
condemnation free
peace with God
unto eternity.

Reconciliation,
rebellion’s settlement
by grace through faith
the only requisite.

Deliverance,
God’s way to deal
with sin’s affects
so Jesus all could heal!

~~~~~~~~~~

Psalm 107:20

He sent his word,
and healed them,
and delivered them
from their destructions.

As The Winds Blow ~

When you see a storm,
blowing your way . . .
make sure you’re ready
to swing with the sway.

For you’ll need to be,
on your feet sturdy
so your faith in Jesus
remains fast and steady.

When you see a storm,
out in front of you . . .
make sure you’re prepared
to thrust with the gust.

For you’ll need to be,
strong and resilient
if your trust in God
is to be consistent.

When you see a storm,
as the winds head your way
remember Jesus they’ll obey . . .
when to Him You pray!

~~~~~~~

Mark 4:41

And they feared exceedingly,
and said one to another,
What manner of man is this,
that even the wind and the
sea obey him?

nor forsake thee.

Wicked High Places ~

Spiritual wickedness,
we all have to fight
but first we must pray
with all of our might.

For we won’t know,
how we’re to win . . .
or have the strength
to overcome sin.

Spiritual wickedness,
aiming for our hearts
with satan we battle
unending fiery darts.

For he wants us to lose,
the hope of our salvation
by luring us into . . .
his pit of temptation.

Wicked high places,
everywhere you look . . .
but God has a battle plan
for us in the Good Book!

~~~~~~~~~~

Ephesians 6:12-13

“For we wrestle not against
flesh and blood, but against
principalities, against powers,
against the rulers of the darkness
of this world, against spiritual
wickedness in high places.

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.”

Hear Me, Hold Me, Hide Me ~

Hear me Oh Lord,
open to me Your ear
take away from me
the sum of my fear.

Keep me in the night,
while shadows move
so that my trust
to You I may prove.

Hold me up Lord,
don’t let me slip
keep Your Words
fixed on my lips.

Let my prayers flow,
straight to Your throne
keep my ears to You
open and prone.

Hide me under Your wings,
protect and keep me . . .
so an apple in Your eyes
to You I always be!

~~~~~~~~~~

Psalm 17:1

Hear the right, O Lord,
attend unto my cry,
give ear unto my prayer,
that goeth not out of feigned lips.

that my footsteps slip not.

Psalm 17:8

apple of the eye,
hide me under
the shadow of thy wings,

God Is Ever Mindful ~

God is ever mindful,
for each one of us He cares
He bows His ears to hear
our petitions and our prayers.

He blesses us with answers,
grants our heart’s desires
showing our delight to Him
He something He admires.

God is ever mindful,
He watches after each of us
He grants to us the faith
to believe in Him and trust.

He gives us the directions,
to live a peaceful life
He uses His own Word
to guide us away from strife.

God is ever mindful,
He blessed us with His Son
to prove His love is . . .
for each and everyone!

that he gave his only begotten Son,
that whosoever believeth in him
should not perish,

Faith For the Impossible~

Faith doesn’t make,
things easier . . .
it won’t make life
get any breezier.

But faith can and will,
make things possible
when you give to God
the improbable.

Faith doesn’t make,
problems lighter . . .
it won’t make life
anymore kinder.

But faith can and will,
make things workable
when you give Jesus
the imaginable.

Faith doesn’t make,
life go any smoother
but God can make you . . .
a mountain mover!

~~~~~~~

Matthew 17:20

And Jesus said unto them,
Because of your unbelief:
for verily I say unto you,
If ye have faith as a grain
of mustard seed, ye shall say
unto this mountain,
Remove hence to yonder place;
and it shall remove;
and nothing shall be
impossible unto you.

Lord, Give My Faith A Backbone ~

Lord, give my faith a backbone,
robust, sturdy and strong
give my spirit the braveness
to last my whole life long.

Lord, help me not to be,
cowardly and spineless
so for You I can be . . .
courageous and fearless.

Lord, give my trust a framework,
rugged, durable and resilient
give my spirit the boldness
to go for You the distant.

Lord, help me not to be,
fainthearted and gutless
so for You I can be . . .
a light for Your justness.

Lord, give me a backbone,
make my faith seamless
so that my trust in You
can remain effortless!

Joshua 1:9

The Love Of God ~

The love of God,
has gotten me past
valleys too deep . . .
mountains so vast.

He help me over,
my fear and doubt
by my side He stayed
never walked out.

The love of God,
has brought me across
waters so high . . .
without being tossed.

He gave me hope,
my worries He stilled
with His ongoing peace
my heart was filled.

The love of God,
has gotten me through
things I thought . . .
were impossible to do!

For with God
nothing shall
be impossible.

Some People Think ~

Some people look down,
their angelic noses . . .
when to others they give
their saintly diagnosis.

They eagerly point out,
things once done in sin
while they boast about
their own restraint within.

Some people think,
they have done no wrong
but will happily talk about
your mistakes all day long.

They brag all about,
the good they have done
from the time they rise
to the setting of the sun.

Some people have forgotten,
we’re all sinners in God’s eyes
and if you were to tell them . . .
it would be a big surprise!

I Have Me A Debt ~

I have me debt,
that I need to pay
not all at once . . .
but as I go my way.

For, I owe it to God,
to trust and obey
so my indebtedness
to Him I can repay.

I have me a credit,
there’s a balance due
the one way to pay it
is Jesus to follow You.

For, You’ve given me,
a life brand new
now in my Spirit
there is His too.

I have me a debt,
I’ll never pay it wholly
but I can live a life
righteous and holy!

~~~~~~~~~~

Romans 8:11-13

But if the Spirit of him
that raised up Jesus
from the dead dwell in you,
he that raised up Christ
from the dead shall also
quicken your mortal bodies
by his Spirit that dwelleth in you.

Therefore, brethren,
we are debtors, not to the flesh,
to live after the flesh.

For if ye live after the flesh,
ye shall die: but if ye through
the Spirit do mortify the deeds
of the body, ye shall live.

Without The Blood ~

 

Without Your blood,
Lord, we’d still be lost
without Your truth . . .
we’d still be dross.

Without Your grace,
we’d still be hopeless
without Your mercy . . .
we’d still be worthless.

Without Your atonement,
Lord, we’d still be doomed
without Your forgiveness . . .
we’d still by sin be consumed.

Without Your love,
we’d still be lifeless
without Your crucifixion
we’d still be helpless.

Lord, without Your blood,
we’d still be sinners
without Your sacrifice . . .
there’d be no crown winners!

~~~~~~~~~~

Hebrews 9:12

Neither by the blood of goats
and calves, but by his own blood
he entered in once into the
holy place, having obtained
eternal redemption for us.

Blessed is the man that
endureth temptation:
for when he is tried,
he shall receive the
crown of life, which
the Lord hath promised
to them that love him.

Oh, Prodigal ~

Oh, prodigal
what made you roam
how did you wander
so far from home?

What led you away,
from the Truth and Life
what took you on the path
to everlasting strife?

Oh, prodigal,
what made you stray
who enticed you off
the straight narrow way.

What convinced you,
from God you could hide
what seduced you onto
the road broad and wide?

Oh prodigal,
what made you roam . . .
God won’t give up on you
until your back home!

~~~~~~~~~~

Matthew 18:12-13

How think ye? if a man have an hundred sheep,
and one of them be gone astray, doth he not
leave the ninety and nine, and goeth into
the mountains, and seeketh that which is gone astray?

And if so be that he find it, verily I say unto you,
he rejoiceth more of that sheep, than of the ninety
and nine which went not astray.

Freely God Gave ~

Freely God gives,
His mercy to all
openly He hears
His name when we call.

Kindly God provides,
for our every need
richly He blesses
when His will we heed.

Gladly God renders,
His strength and power
willingly He became
our high strong tower.

Abundantly God bestows,
peace and stillness
selflessly He grants us
all of His goodness.

Lovingly God gave,
His one Son to all . . .
freely He gives grace
when on His name we call!

He that spared not his own Son,
but delivered him up for us all,
how shall he not with him also
freely give us all things?

The Spirit of Power ~

God has not given us,
a spirit of fear . . .
but, one of His power
to keep us to Him near.

No worry shall cause,
us to tremble or shake
not even the enemy
can author us to faint.

God has not given us,
a spirit of neglect . . .
but, one of His love
with regard and respect.

We shall speak the truth,
for in God we do trust
we care about others
because, He first loved us.

God has not given us,
a spirit of trepidation . . .
but, of a sound mind
not filled with irritation.

We are full of His peace,
there’s a calm deep inside
our tranquilly declares . . .
His Spirit is our guide.

God has given us a spirit,
not full of dread or fear . . .
but of power, love and peace
hope, gladness and good cheer!

the spirit of fear;
but of power, and of love,

Jesus Will Come Again ~

Jesus will come again,
for us He will return
with Him to heaven
one day we’ll adjourn.

Jesus will take us,
any hour of any day
with a loud trump
we’ll go with Him away.

Jesus will be coming,
clouds we will see
in just a twinkling
with Him we’ll flee.

Jesus will comeback,
like a thief in the night
we will be caught up
with Him in His light.

Jesus will come again,
on this we can be sure
and until He does . . .
we must all endure!

~~~~~~~~~~

Matthew 24:36

But of that day and hour
knoweth no man, no,
not the angels of heaven,
but my Father only.

shall be saved.

When You Need A Hand ~

When you need,
a hand to hold . . .
before your knees
begin to fold.

Reach for the hand,
of God’s to clasp
and He will keep
you in His grasp.

When you need,
extra support . . .
before you legs
start to contort.

On God’s hand,
trust and lean
and His power
you will glean.

When you need,
to be bold . . .
onto God’s hand
keep a firm hold!

~~~~~

Isaiah 41:10

Fear thou not; for I am with thee:
be not dismayed; for I am thy God:

sharing with all the Good News
power keepers, soul reapers

trust imparters, faith informers
looking for His lost sheep to feed.

Hope distributors, calm givers,
paving the way with His light
God seekers, Jesus searchers
living the good and faithful fight.

Sin stoppers, temptation busters,
leading others from the gate of hell
truth tellers, one day heaven dwellers
with the greatest love story to tell.

Light bearers, problem sharers,
coming together in healing prayer
Bible holders, His soldiers
confessing Jesus because we dare!

Do Not Despair ~

Do not despair,
do not be oppressed
I will comfort you
so be not distressed.

Do not worry,
do not be alarmed
I will not let anything
cause you to be harmed.

Do not doubt,
do not be disillusioned
I have waiting for you
an joyful conclusion.

Do not anguish,
do not be downcast
I will bring you peace
if on Me you hold fast.

Do not despair,
do not be crushed . . .
put your faith in Me
for I’m worthy of your trust!

I Want To Be That Eagle ~

I want to be that eagle,
that knows when to soar
who patiently waits . . .
for guidance from the Lord.

Then I would discover,
how to spread my wings
then I’d be able to conquer
all the storms life brings.

I want to have the wisdom,
to be able to discern . . .
how to fly over the clouds
not faint in my concern.

Then I’d have His strength,
to mount up and rise
trusting in His foresight
not what’s before me eyes.

I want to be that eagle,
who never gets weary
I want it to be the Lord . . .
who I can trust clearly!

~~~~~~~~~

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.”

Flighty Sparrow ~

Flighty sparrow,
flitting all about
why do you fly
on wings of doubt?

Don’t you know,
God loves you
with a love . . .
steadfast and true?

Flighty sparrow,
head in the clouds
why do you follow
ungodly crowds?

Don’t you believe,
God values you
how much He cares
about all you do?

Flighty sparrows,
flitting there and here
need God to ease . . .
all their earthy fear!

~~~~~~~

Matthew 10:31

Fear not, therefore;
you are of more value
than many sparrows.

Laying My Treasures ~

My heart doesn’t lay,
it’s treasures on earth
for it knows one day
they’ll hold no worth.

Instead my heart places,
in God its daily trust
for I know His love for me
will never corrode or rust.

My heart doesn’t invest,
into worldly assets
for they are void of peace
riddled down with regrets.

Instead my heart’s devoted,
to the Life, Truth and Way
for I know my faith in Jesus
will not corrupt or decay.

My heart up in heaven,
lays all it holds dear . . .
for to put it here on earth
makes me shutter with fear!

~~~~~~~~~~

Matthew 6:19-21

Lay not up for yourselves treasures
upon earth, where moth and rust
doth corrupt, and where thieves break
through and steal:

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

For where your treasure is,
there will your heart be also.

Drawing A Line ~

There is a line,
we mustn’t cross
nor is it one over
which we can gloss.

For It separates,
the dark from the light
and we must choose
which battle to fight.

There is a line,
we mustn’t straddle
nor is it on one
we should travel.

For it divides,
where our treasures lay
be it up in heaven
or on the wide way.

There is a line,
we all need to make . . .
and we need to decided
what road to take!

~~~~~~~~~~

Matthew 7:13-14

Enter ye in at the strait gate:
for wide is the gate,
and broad is the way,
that leadeth to destruction,
and many there be
which go in thereat:

Because strait is the gate,
and narrow is the way,
which leadeth unto life,
and few there be that find it.

Love Released Me ~

Love released me,
from the mire
took my life
lifted me higher.

It picked me up,
when I was down
it stood me up
on firm ground.

Love pulled me,
out of the pit
took my heart
raised my spirit.

It hoisted me,
in faith and hope
It boosted me
in trust to cope.

Love removed,
my doubt and fear
Love came down . . .
to draw me near!

~~~~~~~

1 John 4:18

There is no fear in love;

The Wind of The Spirit ~

The wind of God’s Spirit,
is relentlessly active . . .
where it chooses to blow
no one can keep track of.

It can’t be viewed by the eye,
only detected by the ear
but you can feel its power
whenever it comes near.

The wind of God’s Spirit,
is like a breeze whispering
or it can be like a gust
as it swiftly comes rushing.

It’s an ongoing indwelling,
a constant infilling
of God’s holy power
a continuous refilling.

The mighty wind of God,
isn’t seen but it’s heard . . .
and those born of the Spirit
know when it’s being stirred!

~~~~~~~~~~

John 3:8

The wind bloweth where it listeth,
and thou hearest the sound thereof,
but canst not tell whence it cometh,
and whither it goeth: so is every one
that is born of the Spirit.

Relying On God ~

Make relying on God,
a part of your day . . .
before you set out
for His strength pray.

For you’re going to need,
His mighty power
just knowing that satan
is out to devour.

Make God your refuge,
throughout your day
ask Him to guide you
as you make your way.

For you’re going to want,
on Him to depend
when for your beliefs
you have to defend.

Make relying on God,
a daily choice . . .
then count on Him
to give you a voice!

Psalm 59:17

Unto thee, O my strength,
will I sing: for God is my
defence, and the God of my mercy.

The Gulf of Grief ~

In the depth of despair,
there is a gulf of grief . . .
where the sorrows of this life
leaves us begging for relief.

The hurting soul can’t calm,
or remove the heartbreak
it needs the healing touch
of the One who won’t forsake.

We thirst for healing waters,
for a peaceful resting place
where we can purge the pain
that’s too unbearable to face.

The grieving soul can’t let go,
nor cause the ache to part
only God can relieve . . .
the throbbing in its heart.

In the depth of despair,
there is a gulf of grief . . .
and only Jesus can bring
the heartbroken true relief!

If God ~

If for us God has plans,
if He knows our future
why don’t we believe
and trust Him sooner?

If He has for us good things,
if He provides our needs
why don’t we follow Him
regardless of where He leads?

If God gives us joy,
if He fills us with peace
why doesn’t our faith in Him
continue to increase?

If He provides our strength
if He equips us with power
why then does our hope
turn so often sour?

If we trust and believe,
God plans and not our own
to His guidance we’d be . . .
more spiritually prone!

~~~~~~~~

Jeremiah 29:11

“For I know the thoughts
that I think toward you,
saith the Lord, thoughts

with all joy and peace in believing,

Equipped ~

Father equip us,
with Your power and might
as today we prepare . . .
for this battle we fight.

Outfit us with the truth,
so we may endure
the pull of the darkness
and it’s wicked allure.

Father arm us,
for the battle ahead
prepare for us the way
so we can be Spirit led.

Supply us with the trust,
as with evilness we grapple
give us Your strength
as wickedness we tackle.

Father equip us,
so that we will be ready
to fight the good fight . . .
with a faith that is steady!

~~~~~~~~~~

Ephesians 6:12-18

For we wrestle not against
flesh and blood,
but against principalities,
against powers,
against the rulers of the
darkness of this world,
against spiritual wickedness
in high places.

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.

Stand therefore, having your loins
girt about with truth, and having
on the breastplate of righteousness;

And your feet shod with the preparation
of the gospel of peace;

Above all, taking the shield of faith,
wherewith ye shall be able to quench
all the fiery darts of the wicked.

And take the helmet of salvation,
and the sword of the Spirit,
which is the word of God:

Praying always with all prayer
and supplication in the Spirit,
and watching thereunto with all
perseverance and supplication
for all saints;

Restless ~

Restless hearts,
are everywhere
burdened down
by all their care.

Worry lines spread,
across their face
etched with the need
to find God’s grace.

Restless souls,
are all around
fear and dread
keeps them bound.

Furrowed brows,
show their vexation
oh, how they need
to find salvation.

Restless people,
restless minds . . .
oh, how they need
Jesus to find!

~~~~~

Isaiah 57:20-21

But the wicked are like
the troubled sea,
when it cannot rest,
whose waters cast up
mire and dirt.

Faith Without Grace ~

Grace and faith,
a winning combination
for it is the key . . .
to eternal salvation.

You can’t have one,
with out the other
for faith without grace
your sins won’t cover.

Grace and faith,
are a reckoning source
when added together
they’re a powerful force.

For grace is the channel,
faith is the condition
without both of them
there is no redemption.

Grace and faith,
is the lone connection
and it comes from only . . .
one divine direction!

Ephesians 2:8

For by grace are ye saved
through faith; and that not
of yourselves:
it is the gift of God:

All Things Created ~

All things held together,
by God’s mighty hands
all things come together
according to His plans.

All things in heaven,
by God were fashioned
all things here on earth
He wisely sanctioned.

All things that are seen,
and all that which are not
were conceived by God
and the power of His thought.

The thrones and the rulers,
the mandates that be
were all formed and made
to give glory to Thee.

All things by God,
were created and established
so His plan for salvation . . .
could be accomplished!

~~~~~~~

Colossians 1:16-18

For by him were all things created,
that are in heaven,
and that are in earth,
visible and invisible,
whether they be thrones, or dominions,
or principalities, or powers:
all things were created by him,
and for him:

And he is before all things,
and by him all things consist.

And he is the head of the body,
the church: who is the beginning,
the firstborn from the dead;
that in all things he might have
the preeminence.

The Cloud of Past Sin ~

When the cloud of past sin,
darkens up your way . . .
remember God wiped out
misdeeds of yesterday.

He remembers never more,
the wicked things once done
now He only sees you through
the grace of His Son.

When the cloud of former sin,
moves across your path . . .
remember you no longer
will have to face God’s wrath.

He forgets all about,
your former wickedness
now He only sees you through
the eyes of righteousness.

When the cloud of ancient sin,
starts to descend down upon you
remember God has blotted out . . .
your past from His eternal view!

~~~~~~~~~~

Isaiah 44:22

I have blotted out,
as a thick cloud,
thy transgressions,
and, as a cloud, thy sins:
return unto me;
for I have redeemed thee.

Intercessory Prayer ~

Intercessory prayers,
we all need to make
for we never know . . .
the bonds we might break.

For there’s plenty of people,
who are tied up in chains
and we should be praying
for their sorrows and pains.

Intercessory prayers,
we all need to be saying
for we never know . .
whose trust needs saving.

For there’s plenty of saints,
who are besieged by troubles
and we need to be praying
they give God their struggles.

Intercessory prayers,
what music to God’s ears
as for others we beseech . . .
the collection of their tears!

~~~~~~~~~~

Ephesians 6:18

Praying always with all prayer
and supplication in the Spirit,
and watching thereunto
with all perseverance and
supplication for all saints;

Psalm 56:8

Thou tellest my wanderings:
put thou my tears into thy bottle:
are they not in thy book?

Besides Stilling Waters ~

Besides stilling waters,
is where Jesus leads me
whenever from all the chaos
I long and need to be.

It is where my heart goes,
in the heat of the day
where with Him in my mind
I can linger and stay.

Besides stilling waters,
running throughout my soul
is where I ask Jesus
to regain in me control.

It is where my hopes flows,
whenever there is a drought
where with His peace I find
the abating of my doubt.

Besides stilling waters,
is where Jesus and I meet
it’s there that my fears . . .
I leave at His feet!

He leadeth me beside

From Guilt to Shameless ~

Come unto Me,
rest is what I’ll give
when you ask of Me
your past to forgive.

Come let Me wash,
your sins away
from all those years
you went astray.

Come unto Me,
My burden is painless
with Me you’ll go . . .
from guilt to shameless.

Come let Me take,
your shame and disgrace
so I may free you
with My love and grace.

Come unto Me,
rest is what you’ll find
not just for your heart
but too for your mind!

1 John 1:9

If we confess our sins,

New Mercies Afresh ~

God sends to us,
afresh each day . . .
tender mercies
as we go our way.

Pity and favor,
merge at our feet
when the morning
at first we greet.

Blessings of peace,
whenever needed
rest is guaranteed
to heart’s yielded.

Confidence to near,
the throne of grace
when Jesus’ life
our soul’s embrace.

God’s tender mercies,
bless us each day anew . . .
to heal and restore
as they repair and renew!

Grace Is An Infusion ~

Grace is an infusion,
of God’s love and mercy
it is given freely . . .
to all who are thirsty.

It cannot be bought,
borrowed or purchased
only by Jesus . . .
to you is it furnished.

Grace is an transfusion,
of Christ’s saving blood
it cleanses our souls
as it flows and floods.

It is a connection,
to everything just
it quickens the heart
in it’s power to trust.

Grace is a transfusion,
of hope, love and peace
grace is an infusion . . .
only Jesus can release!

~~~~~~~

Ephesians 2:8

For by grace are ye saved
through faith; and that not
of yourselves:
it is the gift of God:

Whoso eateth my flesh,
and drinketh my blood,
hath eternal life;

The Happy CHRISTian ~

The happy CHRISTian,
reads the Scriptures
the grace of Jesus
their mind pictures.

They find their pleasure,
not in worldly things
but in the peace and joy
His salvation brings.

They shun the world,
find in it no delight
the Word they meditate
both the day and night.

They are like a tree,
that is rooted well
for inside their soul
the Holy Spirit dwells.

The happy CHRISTian,
pursues the right way
that is why they read . . .
God’s Word every day!

~~~~~~~~~

Psalm 1:3

And he shall be like a tree planted
by the rivers of water, that bringeth

his leaf also shall not wither;

The Glorious Works of God ~

The glorious works of God,
are everywhere . . .
none which man created
to them can compare.

It’s sparkles in the skies,
it glows in the moon
it twinkles through stars
it shines at high noon.

It’s a pillar of light,
it’s a Word from above
it’s water from a rock
it’s forgiveness and love.

It’s heard in the waters,
it babbles in a spring
it roars to the shore
it soars on eagle wings.

It’s a wooden cross,
it’s mercy and favor
it’s filled with grace
it’s the gift of a Savior.

The glorious works of God,
are everywhere . . .
there are none greater
to be found elsewhere!

When I consider thy heavens,

More Aware of Jesus~

Sometimes we can get,
so extremely busy . . .
that we find ourselves
going into a hissy-tizzy.

We become frantic,
with all we have to do
that Lord we forget . . .
to take time out for You.

Sometimes we neglect,
what is our real service
and our lives become . . .
just like a three-ring circus.

We become preoccupied,
with the show we must put on
that Lord we don’t notice You
until everyone is gone.

Sometimes we need to be,
more aware Lord of You . . .
and not be so loaded down
in the work we have to do!

~~~~~~~~~~

Luke 10:40-42

But Martha was cumbered about much serving,
and came to him, and said, Lord, dost thou
not care that my sister hath left me to serve
alone? bid her therefore that she help me.

And Jesus answered and said unto her,
Martha, Martha, thou art careful and
troubled about many things:

But one thing is needful:
and Mary hath chosen that good part,
which shall not be taken away from her.

Truly Loathsome~

All we humans,
are truly loathsome
we are all to God . . .
far from wholesome.

But, we who repent,
have been forgiven
and to evil we are . . .
no longer driven.

We are all wicked,
utterly revolting
we are all to God
wrath provoking.

But, we who confess,
our every transgression
are no longer filled
with sin’s obsession.

All we humans,
are detestable beings
but, we who love Jesus . . .
in heaven we’ll be seeing!

~~~~~~~~~~

Ezekiel 20:43

And there shall ye remember your ways,
and all your doings, wherein ye have
been defiled; and ye shall lothe
yourselves in your own sight for
all your evils that ye have committed.

Acts 3:19

Repent ye therefore, and be converted,
that your sins may be blotted out,
when the times of refreshing shall
come from the presence of the Lord.

Dying Breath ~

Don’t you wait,
till your last breath
turn to Jesus today . . .
before your death.

For He can give you,
a life worth living
once you discover
He is forgiving.

Don’t you wait,
til your death bed
turn to Jesus today . . .
before your dead.

For by His grace,
He will save you . . .
if you have the faith
to believe in Him too.

Don’t you wait,
til you have no more air
turn to Jesus now . . .
and your soul He’ll spare!

An Assignment From God~

When God gives you,
an earthly assignment
make sure it is on Him
you remain reliant.

For without His power,
you will be too frail . . .
but, with it flowing in you
your mission will not fail.

When God gives you,
duties to perform
make sure you cleave
onto His mighty arm.

For without His support,
you wont be up to the tasks
but with it you will be able
to do all that He asks.

When God sends you,
out on an assignment
make sure your heart . . .
and His are in alignment!

~~~~~~~~~~

Deuteronomy 13:4

Ye shall walk after the Lord your God,
and fear him, and keep his commandments,
and obey his voice, and ye shall serve him,

Leaving Your First Love ~

Some people leave,
their First Love . . .
they lose all faith
in God above.

So they journey onward,
without His guiding light
being heaven bound
no longer in their sight.

Some people depart,
in discouragement
in God’s Word they find
no encouragement.

So they wander off,
into the world of sin
closing off the power
they once had within.

Some their First Love,
decide to up and leave
turning their back on
all that they believe.

But, God is eager,
for the lost to return
for He knows if not . . .
in hell fires they’ll burn!

~~~~~~~~~~

Revelation 2:4

Nevertheless I have somewhat
against thee, because thou
hast left thy first love.

Revelation 20:15

And whosoever was not found
written in the book of life
was cast into the lake of fire.

Feeble Feet ~

Some feet are feeble,
they slip and they slide
into the darkness . . .
they easily glide.

But, God will not let,
His saint’s feet fall away
if from His Word . . .
they opt never to stray.

Some feet are frail,
they falter and trip
onto the world . . .
their toes keep a grip.

But, God’s Word,
is a lamp to the feet
for those who keep
to the narrow beat.

Some feet are weak,
they wander all about . . .
but, feet that are strong
on God never walkout!

~~~~~~~~~~

1 Samuel 2:9-10

He will keep the feet of his saints,
and the wicked shall be silent in
darkness; for by strength shall
no man prevail.

The adversaries of the Lord
shall be broken to pieces;
out of heaven shall he thunder
upon them: the Lord shall judge
the ends of the earth;
and he shall give strength
unto his king, and exalt
the horn of his anointed.

A World Full of Sorrow ~

A world full of sorrow,
heartbreak and grief
one day to it . . .
Jesus will bring relief.

Tears will no longer,
from eyes ebb and flow
nor will there be heard
cries of regret’s woe.

Pain will be defeated,
death will be no more
when Jesus returns
for His meek and poor.

All things will be new,
the former things gone
when the reins to world
Jesus at last takes on.

A world full of sorrow,
will soon one day cease
to a new heaven and earth
filled with God’s joy and peace!

~~~~~~~~~~

Revelation 21:4

And God shall wipe away
all tears from their eyes;
and there shall be no more death,
neither sorrow, nor crying,
neither shall there be any more pain:
for the former things are passed away.

Perfect Purposeful Love ~

Perfect love,
drives out fear
it encourages
eyes not to tear.

It is mighty,
and purposeful
it is potent
and powerful.

Perfect love,
is immeasurable
it is genuine
and substantial.

It is resilient,
infinity reaching
it is faith . . .
mountain moving.

Perfect love,
is fear’s demise
for God’s power
it supplies!

~~~~~

1 John 4:18

There is no fear in love;
but perfect love casteth out fear:
because fear hath torment.
He that feareth is not
made perfect in love.

With A Love That’s True ~

I love you Lord,
more than I know
I love You more . . .
as my faith grows.

For the closer,
I become to You . . .
I see how much
for me that You do.

I love you Lord,
more than I think
I love you more . . .
as my ego shirks.

For the nearer,
to You I become . . .
the more to You
my pride succumbs.

I love You Lord,
with a love that’s true . . .
the more I grow
Lord, down into You!

My God will hear me,

He will consider
all that I have to share.

He knows my true heart,

my entreaty to Him
will into His ears find.

My God will hear me,
to my cry He will take heed
for my God will provide . . .
to me the faith I need!

One Day Before God ~

One day before God,
I will stand spotless
in Christ, Jesus His Son
I will be found flawless.

My sins will be as white,
as freshly fallen snow
the blemish of my shame
will take on a pearly glow.

One day before God,
I will bow and confess
as my allegiance
to Jesus I profess.

My love and devotion,
for eternity I’ll sing
to the Lord of lords
and the King of all kings.

One day before God,
I will stand faultless . . .
for the Lamb of God
has rendered me spotless!

~~~~~~~~~~

Philippians 2:9-11

Wherefore God also hath highly
exalted him, and given him a
name which is above every name:

That at the name of Jesus every

and things in earth,
and things under the earth;

And that every tongue
should confess that
Jesus Christ is Lord,
to the glory of God the Father.

furnish our winter warmth

upon salvation’s hearth.

I am still storing.

come back to me!

Playing Hide-and-Seek ~

Some people with God,
play hide-and-seek . . .
they pray to Him only
when their feeling weak.

But, oh when their strong,
without Him they reckon
they can do anything
without first seeking Him.

Some people with God,
like to play games
they only seek Him
for material gains.

But, oh when their down,
and out of their luck
under their arms
their Bibles they tuck.

Some people with God,
think their sins they can hide
but, oh how God sees . . .
right through their pride!

And they heard the voice

And the Lord God called
unto Adam, and said unto him,
Where art thou?

And he said, I heard thy voice
in the garden, and I was afraid,
because I was naked; and I hid myself.

and the life we have now
we will never once miss!

We all waver,

we all need saving
again and again.

But we know,
Jesus will recuse us
therefore we put
in Him our trust.

We all sink into,
some kind of despair
but, our faith . . .
it will not impair!
