My Joy Found ~

In Jesus,
my joy was found
and because of Him
I am heaven bound.

I found my faith in Jesus,
His name fills me with glee
all because I believe . . .
it was He, that first loved me.

I found my way in Jesus,
no longer am I lost
for He has taken me . . .
to the foot of the cross.

I found my hope in Jesus,
with Him my treasures I store
ever since I heard His rap . . .
and open to Him the door.

I found my joy in Jesus,
His name reminds me of
the life I have now . . .
due to His grace and love!

~~~~~~

Luke 15:10

“Likewise, I say unto you,
there is joy in the presence
of the angels of God
over one sinner that repenteth.”

Oh, What Jesus Can Do for You ~

I see your pain,
I hear your doubt
I know you think
there’s no way out.

But, if Jesus can,
heal the sick and lame
I know for you  . . .
He can do the same.

I hear your sorrow,
I see your grief
I know you think
they’ll be no relief.

But, if Jesus can,
calm the seas at will
I know for you . . .
your heart too will still.

I see your pain,
it’s written on your face . . .
but oh, what Jesus can do
with His love and grace!

“Let us therefore come boldly
unto the throne of grace,

He Calms the Storms ~

He calms the storms,
the waves He can hush
so those in distress
into His arms will rush.

He redirects the wind,
tells it where to go
so those fearful
His peace may know.

He stops the roar,
of an angry sea
so those hopeless
His power can see.

He silences the clap,
in the thunder
so those frightened
can see His wonder.

He answers the cries,
of those afraid . . .
so they’ll learn in Him
not to be dismayed!

~~~~~~~~~

Psalm 107:29

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

and of good courage;
dread not,
nor be dismayed.”

K.I.S.S. ~

Keep It Simple Saints,
don’t get bogged down
in all the rhetoric
that keeps going around.

Keep It Simple Saints,
don’t listen to the heresy
just look into your Bible
and do what it has to say.

Keep It Simple Saints,
childlike faith is all you need
trust in your First Love
and let the Holy Spirit lead.

Keep It Simple Saints,
don’t get caught in the lies
discern for yourself the truth
and then only those apply.

Keep It Simple Saints,
some make salvation hard
and their misguided opinions
you will need to disregard.

Keep It Simple Saints,
it’s so easy to get tied down
by all the Scripture arguments
that for centuries . . .
have been going around!

~~~~~~~~~~

2 Peter 2:1-2

“But there were false prophets
also among the people,
even as there shall be
false teachers among you,
who privily shall bring
in damnable heresies,
even denying the Lord
that bought them,
and bring upon themselves
swift destruction.

And many shall follow
their pernicious ways;
  by reason of whom the
way of truth shall be
evil spoken of.”

Take Back Your Joy ~

Lord, give back Your joy,
to those stumbling . . .
let them feel Your love
once again humbling.

Reignite in them the hope,
when they first meet You
let again Your saving light
in their life’s break through.

Let their repentant heart,
once again feel Your calm
let the joy of being saved
be again their soothing balm.

Restore in them the trust,
as when You they first accepted
renew Your mercy and grace
so again You’ll be connected.

Lord, let the contrite take back,
the joy of their salvation . . .
return unto them their state
of everlasting elation!

“Restore unto me the joy
of thy salvation; and uphold
me with thy free spirit.”

Rejoicing Always ~

It’s hard to be rejoicing,
when things aren’t going right
it hard to give God thanks . . .
with so many battles to fight.

It’s hard to see God’s hand,
in the middle of the pain
it hard to be grateful
when all your joy is drained.

But we who have Jesus,
living inside of us
know how important it is
in Him to always trust.

For, to always be rejoicing,
takes prayer continually
and then our thanks to God
will come unceasingly.

It’s hard to be rejoicing,
with all that life brings . . .
but, we know it’s God will
to be thankful for all things!

~~~~~~~~

1 Thessalonians 5:16-18

“Rejoice always,
pray without ceasing,
give thanks in all circumstances;
for this is the will of God
in Christ Jesus for you.”

The Heart-Felt Cry ~

God hears your cries,
He hears your pleas
He is aware of . . .
your cares and needs.

He knows when you are,
feeling out and down
He knows you need
to sense He’s around.

So, if you’re hurting,
thinking God doesn’t care
believe me I know . . .
to your pain He’s aware.

For I have been,
just where you are
convincing myself
God from me was afar.

But, I have found this to be,
one of satan’s lies
for, God promises to hear
our heart-felt cries!

~~~~~~~

Psalm 18:6

“In my distress I called upon the Lord,
and cried unto my God:
he heard my voice out of his temple,
and my cry came before him,
even into his ears.

Always Something To Be Thankful For ~

There is always something,
to be thankful for
all you have to do . . .
is be willing to explore.

If you will open up,
your heart and your mind
all kinds of blessings
you will be able to find.

Some are so small,
they don’t get our attention
but, for each of them
God has a good intention.

Some are so obvious,
you don’t need to search far
for everyone can see them
from right where they are.

Whether our blessings
are big or if they are small
we need to be thankful . . .
to God who supplies them all.

Yes, there’s always something,
for us to be thankful for
and we need to be grateful
so God can send us more!

Giving thanks always

Jesus Is All I Need ~

 

I said to myself,
Jesus is all I need
now that from sin
I have been freed.

He said unto my soul,
I am hope eternal
tis why I saved you
from hell’s infernal.

I said to myself,
Jesus is my Lord
now that my life
and His is in accord.

He said unto my soul,
I’m Your Savior
thanks to My Father’s
mercy and favor.

I said to myself,
where would I be
if not for His grace
being shed on me.

He said unto my soul,
you would be lost
and so My life I gave
to you at not a cost.

I said to myself,
Jesus is all I need
He said unto my soul
it is I in you . . .
who’s been freed!

Make a Joyful Noise ~

Come all my friends,
come one and all . . .
let’s gather together
and let our praise fall.

Let’s make a noise,
to God that’s joyful
let’s sing why we are
thankful and hopeful.

Let’s loudly proclaim,
our love for Him
let’s tell why our cups
overflow from the brim

Let’s sing of our salvation,
the Rock of our strength
lets not keep our elation
from others at arms-length.

Come all my friends,
let us all assemble
so to the world . . .
Jesus we may resemble!

Your Heart’s Desires ~

If you want God to give you,
your heart’s desires . . .
then for Him your soul
must fan grateful fires.

You need to be elated,
with His loving kindness
you need to be delighted
in all of His goodness.

You need to take pleasure,
in the righteous way of living
you need in all things
to give Him your  thanksgiving.

You need to be excited,
by the joy of your salvation
you need to be exuberant
He saved you from damnation.

If you want God to give you,
your heart’s desires . . .
you can’t become complacent
with doing what He requires!

God’s Saving Light ~

If I could gather,
all the rays of God’s light
I know now blinded eyes
would receive a new sight.

For within each beam,
the blinded eye would see
how the grace of Jesus
came to set them free.

If I could reap,
every ounce of God’s light
everyone would be full
of His power and His might.

For within each burst,
His love would crystallize
and His mercy for them
they would personalize.

If I could gather,
each beam and every ray
I’d forever shine God’s glory
on the Truth and the Way!

~~~~~~

2 Corinthians 4:6

” For God, who commanded the light
to shine out of darkness,
hath shined in our hearts,
to give the light of the knowledge
of the glory of God
in the face of Jesus Christ.”

A Thankful, Grateful Heart ~

Lord, give me a thankful heart,
one that is appreciative
one that to all Your blessings
is attuned and sensitive.

Let it be a heart,
that sings its daily praise
let it be my heartfelt gratitude
that to You I earnestly raise.

Let me have a heart,
truly thankful for all things
no matter what in my life
You should choose to bring

Let my heart flow with,
the rivers of Your peace
so my appreciation to You
I may continually release.

Lord, give me a thankful heart,
one that is steadily hopeful
let it be the heart of one . . .
who is truly, forever grateful!

In My Bible ~

Somethings in my Bible I’ve found  . . .

the Word of Life
the end to strife
the mind of God
the road that’s broad
the state of man
the eternal plan
the heart of Jesus
the grace that frees us
the true Vine
the new wine
the gift of salvation
the doom of damnation
the way of hope
the how to cope
the river of pleasure
the everlasting treasure
the guidance needed
the laws to be heeded
the mercy-seat
the Savior’s feet
the schemes of the devil
the powers in high-levels
the Light
the fight
the path
the wrath
the Way
the escape
from
judgment day!

One Blessed, Single Plateful ~

On Thanksgiving day this year,
before the turkey starts roasting
my thanks, I will be singing
for the dinner I’ll be hosting.

I will set the dining table,
with the gratitude I feel
before anyone comes
to feast upon the meal.

I will spread the hope,
that I’m feeling inside
before I even serve . . .
the food that God supplied.

I will polish up on all,
the reasons I’m thankful
before I even dish up
one blessed, single plateful.

On Thanksgiving day this year,
before the food I present
I will let everyone know . . .
just why I am so content!

Everlasting ~

Everything around us,
eventually will be gone
but the peace of Jesus
will eternally carry on.

For He’s everlasting,
His love is unchanging
His grace for each of us
is tirelessly unfailing.

All that we possess,
will someday vanish
but our hope in Jesus
will not ever perish.

For Jesus is the same,
yesterday and today
to His Father’s throne
He’s still the only doorway.

Everything around us,
will one day be but gone
but life everlasting . . .
we can joyfully count on!

A New Song ~

A new song,
God’s put in my heart
of how His mercy
came to do its part.

He took my sorrow,
turned it into hope
gave me the grace
each day to cope.

A new song,
I’m going to sing
so others to Him . . .
my grief might bring.

He’s given to me,
a brand new melody
and for my heartache
joy is now its remedy.

A new song,
God’s given to me
thru grief I’ve a glimpse
of eternal glee!

“And he hath put
a new song in my mouth,

Making My Life Count ~

One day to God,
I will give account
of all of my doings
and my where’s-about.

So each day I try,
in His presence to live
and my attention
to Him, I hourly give.

For, His eyes see all,
they are everywhere
as He travels with me
on life’s thoroughfare.

So I pray every day,
God’s ways I will know
for I don’t want to journey
where He would not go.

For, Jesus abides in me,
and I need to be wary
for I do not know . . .
how long He may tarry.

So I live my life,
knowing I’ll give account
tis why all my days for Him
I want to make count!

Thankful For the Right Reasons ~

Lord, as I enter into,
the season of Thanksgiving
may I do so without . . .
any qualms or misgivings.

May I be grateful,
for all You’ve given me
especially for the things
I am still yet to see.

May I be satisfied,
with all I have got
may I be content
with what I have not.

May I be appreciative,
for Your every blessing
may I be at peace with . . .
those I’ll not be getting.

Lord, as I enter into,
Thanksgiving’s season
may I be truly thankful
for all the right reasons!

God Heals the Broken Heart ~

God can do wonders
with broken hearts
He can heal and mend
all the injured parts.

But, you must give Him,
your heart as it breaks
each little piece of it
and all the little flakes.

God can perform miracles,
on hearts that are damaged
He can undo the impact
where grief has ravaged.

But, you must go to Him,
with a heart surrendered
so He can do the repairs
without being hindered.

God can do wonders,
miracles He still performs
for, on hearts that are broken
He mercifully transforms!

God has a storehouse,
He wants to provide
all things that are good
you’ll not be denied.

It’s full of forgiveness,
hope, peace and rest
with the riches and glory
in Jesus you’ll blessed.

God has a storehouse,
He wants for you to share
so other people burdens . . .
you too, may help to bear!

ALMIGHTY GOD — THE BEGINNING AND THE END

“Then shall the kingdom of heaven be likened unto ten virgins, which took their lamps, and went forth to meet the bridegroom.”(Matt 25:1)Wise virgins can hear the Lord's voice, it's mainly because that wise virgins like the truth and seek the truth. They long for God's appearance. So they seek and investigate on the things about the Lord's return, and know how to distinguish the Lord's voice. Are you willing to be a wise virgin? Then hurry up to see whether the truth expressed by Almighty God is God's voice!
