Unspeakable Joy ~

Joy that is counted,
no matter what goes on
is joy that believes . . .
in the grace of the Son.

Joy that is patient,
when it’s being tested
is joy that’s in Jesus . . .
at peace and rested.

Joy that is brimming,
without being requested
is joy that is in prayer . . .
completely invested.

Joy that’s inexpressible,
in things not observed
is joy that is in hope . . .
perfectly preserved.

Joy that’s heart grieving,
but is not by man taken . . .
is joy that is in God . . .
which cannot be shaken.

Joy that is counted,
joy that’s unshakable
is joy so wonderful . . .
it is unspeakable!

~~~~~~

James 1:2

“My brethren,
count it all joy
when ye fall into
divers temptations;”

John 16:22

“And ye now therefore have sorrow:
but I will see you again,
and your heart shall rejoice,
and your joy no man taketh from you.”

1 Peter 1:8

“Whom having not seen,
ye love; in whom,
though now ye see him not,
yet believing,
ye rejoice with joy
unspeakable and full of glory:”

CHRISTmas Wonder ~

May you feel the wonder,
of God’s gift of a Savior
may His love and grace
you hold on to and savor.

May you feel the thrill,
of the hope of His birth
may your heart overflow
with joy, cheer and mirth.

May you feel the wonder,
of the coming of a King
may you trust and believe
in the peace He’s soon to bring.

May you feel the excitement,
of Him who was and is to come
may you be eager and ready
for Him to set up His kingdom.

May you feel the wonder,
of God’s blessed assurance
as you await the day . . .
of His next appearance!

Hope For The Future ~

Hope for the future,
and for now and today
comes when God’s plans
we follow and obey.

Hope brimming with joy,
and of peacefulness
comes when we walk
a life of faithfulness.

Hope filled with trust,
and blessed assurance
comes when we live
a life full of pureness.

Hope heart stilling,
and mind calming
comes when into sin
we keep from falling.

Hope for the future,
is our hope for the day
for we know to follow . . .
the Life, Truth and Way!

~~~~~~~~

Jeremiah 29:11

“For I know the thoughts

you with all joy and peace
in believing, that ye may
abound in hope, through
the power of the Holy Ghost.”

Peace Jesus Gives ~

Peace Jesus gives,
to all who seek
no matter if . . .
mighty or weak.

For in peace He came,
so we could find
peace to guard and keep
both heart and mind.

Peace Jesus offers,
to all who inquire
if it is truly . . .
their heart’s desire.

For He promises,
peace perfect
to minds on Him
that reflect.

Peace Jesus left,
for all of us
now we must . . .
in this trust!

~~~~~~

John 14:27

“Peace I leave with you,
my peace I give unto you:
not as the world giveth,
give I unto you.
Let not your heart be troubled,
neither let it be afraid.

Thou wilt keep him in
perfect peace,
whose mind is stayed
on thee: because
he trusteth in thee.

So It Be Done ~

So it be written,
so it be done . . .
so unto the world
God sent His Son.

So it be told,
so it be said
so by a star
the Magi’s were led.

So it be stated,
so it be completed
so to a manger
shepherd’s retreated.

So it be scripted,
so it be transcribed
so for man’s sin
Jesus lived and died.

So it be written,
so it be done . . .
so Jesus was born
to save everyone!

~~~~~~~

Isaiah 14:24

“The Lord of hosts hath sworn,
saying, Surely as I have thought,
so shall it come to pass;
and as I have purposed,
so shall it stand:”

John 1:14

and dwelt among us,
(and we beheld his glory,
the glory as of the only
begotten of the Father,)
full of grace and truth.”

Love That Inspires ~

Let us not love in idle words,
that simply roll off our tongues
let us love in truthful actions
and deeds that are left unsung.

Let us not love with conditions,
that requires more of another
let us love in a forgiving measure
bracing and lifting up each other.

Let us not love over factors,
that causes us to clash and fight
let us love with assuring hearts
filled with joy and His delight.

Let us not love in competition,
that causes one to win or to lose
let us love with honest declarations
His truths be in the terms we choose.

Let us not love with a lofty heart,
that brings or puts another down
let us love with hope and bold faith
so others can see the truth we’ve found.

Let us love with pure, honest deeds,
so our conduct awes and inspires
another life to turn to our Lord
for that is what His heart desires!

~~~~~~~~~

Philippians 2: 1-3

“Therefore if there is
any consolation in Christ,

if any comfort of love,
if any fellowship of the Spirit,

if any affection and mercy,
fulfill my joy by being

like-minded, having the same love,
being of one accord,

of one mind.
Let nothing be done through
selfish ambition

or conceit, but in lowliness
of mind let each esteem

others better than himself.”

1 John 2:10

“He that loveth his brother
abideth in the light,
and there is none occasion
of stumbling in him.”

Waver Not ~

Waver not,
instead hold fast
onto your hope
keep steadfast.

For hope eternal,
is your assurance
God will give you
the endurance.

Doubt not,
instead believe
one day true peace
you’ll receive.

For peace everlasting,
is hope’s guarantee
bound in the things
you cannot see.

Waver not,
to your confession
do not doubt
hope’s progression!

~~~~~~

Hebrews 10:23

“Let us hold fast the profession
of our faith without wavering;
(for he is faithful that promised;)”

Hebrews 11:1

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

My Morning Song ~

Early in the morning,
before the sun is ablaze
I give a shout of joy
with a song of heartfelt praise.

I make a sweet melody,
to show God my gratitude
as I sing out my praises
with a joyful attitude.

Early in the morning,
before the sun begins to rise
I thank God for His kindness
under the darken skies.

I clap my hands together,
lift my arms up in praise
as I give my day to the Lord
I thank Him for His ways.

While the dew is still set,
on the morning lawn
while the house is dark
before there is a new dawn.

I show my thankfulness,
to the Lord up above
and lift up my heart-song
to honor His steadfast love.

When my day is over,
as the sun dims its blazing light
I thank God for His faithfulness
all though the starry night!

~~~~~~~~~~

Psalm 92:1-2

“It is good to give thanks to the Lord,
and to sing praises to Your name, O Most
 High; To declare Your lovingkindness in the
morning, and Your faithfulness every night.”

A Future Of Hope ~

A future filled with hope,
is a future worth knowing
for out of it are rivers
of living water flowing.

It’s a future of rest,
joy and elation
found in the well of
eternal salvation.

A future filled with hope,
is a future God planed
for it has been formed
by His very own hand.

It’s a future of peace,
of what is to come
when Jesus returns
to set up His kingdom.

A future filled with hope,
is worth our pursuing
for it’s a future with God
that is all consuming!

Seek To Please God ~

When you seek to please,
God in all you do
nothing people say
will phase or daze you.

You will walk upright,
in a worthy manner
you will become known
as that faithful runner.

You won’t pay attention,
to what people may think
to their cruel ridicule
you won’t even blink.

You will stand up tall,
to evil you’ll not cower
for you know you’re filled
with God’s almighty power

When you seek to please,
God first in your life . . .
what others say or do
won’t cause you any strife!

~~~~~~

Galatians 1:10

” For do I now persuade men, or God?
or do I seek to please men?
for if I yet pleased men,
I should not be the servant of Christ.”

In God’s Holy Presence ~

In God’s holy presence,
there’s joy in its fullness
pleasures circulating
His everlasting goodness.

There is peace and hope,
a spreading of refreshing
an ongoing revolving
of life-changing blessings.

In God’s holy presence,
there’s mercy restoring
upon the Holy Spirit’s
heart filling outpouring.

There’s an internal calm,
an outgoing of favor
the ongoing flowing
of grace from a Savior.

In God’s holy presence,
here and above . . .
there’s an effortless flow
of steadfast love!

~~~~~~~~

Psalm 16:11

“Thou wilt shew me the path of life:
in thy presence is fulness of joy;
at thy right hand there are pleasures
for evermore.”

CHRISTmas Is Coming ~

CHRISTmas is coming,
I can feel the stress
the joy of the season
is becoming less and less.

I can see the crankiness,
impatience and frustration
saying Merry CHRISTmas
only brings more irritation.

CHRISTmas is coming,
I can feel the strain
the hope of the season
is going down the drain.

I can sense the pressure,
the tension and weariness
tidings of peaceful cheer
are met with dreariness.

CHRISTmas is coming,
but, through the stress I’ll cope
for the season still fills me . . .
with joy, peace and hope!

~~~~~~~

Romans 15:13

“Now the God of hope
fill you with all joy
and peace in believing,
that ye may abound in hope,
through the power
of the Holy Ghost.”

Bold Praise ~

I can’t carry a tune,
don’t have a great voice
but for my Savior
I still sing and rejoice.

I don’t know the melody,
haven’t got me the ear
but it doesn’t stop God
my praises to hear.

I can’t read the music,
don’t recognize the chords
but I still carry on
worshiping my Lord.

I don’t have the rhythm,
can’t understand the beat
but I keep on rejoicing
at my Savior’s feet.

I can’t carry a tune,
a note I can’t hold
but, my praise to God
is still always bold!

Sing unto him,

God’s Beloved Son ~

God has a gift for you,
He sent it long ago
for on you His grace
He wanted to bestow.

He planned carefully,
just what He should get
and so His Beloved Son
He was willing to forfeit.

So He sent from heaven,
a Lamb and a King
so that peace and hope
to you He could bring.

He knew that you needed,
a Savior for your soul
someone who could heal
and make your heart whole.

God has a gift for you,
I pray you will open it
for inside you will find
the essence of His Spirit!

2 Corinthians 9:15

“Thanks be unto God
for his unspeakable gift.”

From The Belly Of A Fish ~

If God can hear cries,
from a fish’s belly
I know He hears mine
also loud and clearly.

For wherever I am,
no matter my plight
God in my darkness
will too send His light.

If God can answer,
prayers out of distress
I know mine also
He’ll likewise address.

For it doesn’t matter,
where I might be
my pleas He will hear
and too answer me.

If God answers cries,
from a fish’s belly
I believe mine as well . . .
He’ll too hear readily!

~~~~~~~~~

Jonah 2:1-2

“Then Jonah prayed unto
the Lord his God out of
the fish’s belly,

And said, I cried by reason
of mine affliction unto the Lord,
and he heard me;
out of the belly of hell cried I,
and thou heardest my voice.”

I Don’t Recognize CHRISTmas ~

CHRISTmas has become,
more of a pagan holiday
now not even the manger
can some put on display.

They’ve done a good job taking,
CHRIST out of the big picture
even the cards they make and sell
now seldom have a scripture.

CHRISTmas has become,
just another time to gather
at parties and at homes
where Jesus doesn’t matter.

There’s always plenty of food,
and lots of drinks to go around
but, Jesus’ name isn’t mentioned
unless someone has a meltdown.

I don’t recognize CHRISTmas,
for me it is just not the same
now that I offend so many . . .
when I say my Saviors name!

~~~~~

John 1:14

“And the Word was made flesh,
and dwelt among us,
(and we beheld his glory,

pagan:

noun: a person who does not acknowledge God
adjective: not acknowledging the God of Christianity


I Must Admit ~

I admit . . .
I am old-fashioned
for Jesus is
my one true passion.

I know people think,
I am out of it
when I say I’m filled
with His spirit.

I acknowledge,
I’m old-school
for I let Jesus
my heart rule.

I know people feel,
I’m a dinosaur
for holy living
I still stand up for.

I accept . . .
what they think of me
for still believing in
what I can’t see!

Jesus The True Light ~

May this Christmas,
you find the one True Light
so that Jesus
can give you a new sight.

May you discover,
your own personal Savior
by accepting the gift
of God’s ultimate favor.

May this Christmas,
you find the True Way
and the truth behind
Jesus’ birth this day.

May you discover,
God’s glorious love
delivered to you
from up above.

May this Christmas,
you open your heart
so God into it . . .
grace can impart!

~~~~~~~

John 1:9-10

which lighteth every man
that cometh into the world.

By God’s Grace ~

Sometimes life . . .
can be so unfair
and we anguish over
the depth of our despair.

We become disoriented,
with God’s plans for us
forgetting why we even
in Him place our trust.

Sometimes life . . .
throws us a curve ball
making us wonder
if there’s a God at all.

We become disillusioned,
about God’s will for us
ignoring the fact He is
always fair and just.

Sometimes life . . .
it just to hard to face
but, we who keep trusting
do so by God’s grace!

My God Promises ~

My God is bigger,
than my fear
for my God promises
to always be near.

My God is greater,
than my dread
for my God promises
me daily bread.

My God is mightier,
than my plight
for my God promises
to lead with His light.

My God is bolder,
than my doubt
for my God promises
I’ll not go without.

My God is stronger,
than my concern
for my God promises
He will return!

Satan Doesn’t Care ~

Satan does not care,
who his victim is . . .
all he cares about
is who he can call his.

He will take anyone,
who you are is no big deal
as long as your heart and soul
from God he can steal.

Satan does not care,
how he gets a hold of you
all he cares about
is how your mind he can skew.

He will use any method,
to confuse and deceive
so that he can get you
not in God to believe.

Satan does not care,
who he catches or devours
so be ever watchful . . .
lest you succumb to his powers!

~~~~~~

“Be sober,

Silent People ~

Silent people,
are all around
you may see them
but they make no sound.

For they are in,
an emotional prison
oh, how they need
someone to just listen.

Silent sufferers,
need to be heard
but they say not
one single word.

We need to be,
to them more aware
and open our ears
to hearing their care.

Silent, suffering people,
everywhere we go
oh, how about Jesus . . .
we need to let them know!

God’s Timing Not Mine ~

I have found,
God’s timing’s the best
on this fact
I have come to rest.

For His plan is always,
the only perfect one
so I’ve learned to wait
until He is done.

I have found,
God not to ever push
so I know not to be
in a hurry or a rush.

For He has a hand,
on all He does
so I stay still . . .
simply because.

I have found,
God’s timing to be
perfectly fitting
and suitable just for me!
