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.

He that hath the Son hath life;
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!

God Sees and Hears ~

God sees your tears,
He hears your cries
He knows the sound
of sorrows sighs.

He sees your heart,
the pain, your break
He sees your frame
the tremble, the shake.

God hears your pleas,
the why, the hows
He hears your prayers
the what, the nows.

God sees your mind,
the fear, the fright
He sees  your thoughts
the shock, your fight.

God sees your pain,
the jolt, your shutter
He hears the words
you can’t seem to utter.

~~~~~

Psalm 42:3

“My tears have been
my meat day and night,
while they continually
say unto me,
Where is thy God?”

The Giver Of All Things Good~

Everyday is a gift from God,
a present for us to unfold
the blessings of His splendor
in the green pastures of His fold.

It is there where we will find,
a Shepherd to lead us
into valleys peaceful
filled with strength, faith and trust.

Everyday is a gift from God,
a treasure for us to explore
the bounty of His goodness
to soak in and to absorb.

It is there where we will find,
all that is good and perfect
coming from the Father of lights
for us daily on which to reflect.

Everyday is a gift to us,
from the Giver of all things
a treasure trove of blessings
that each new morning brings!

James 1.17

“Every good gift and every
perfect gift is from above,
and cometh down from the
Father of lights,
with whom is no variableness,
neither shadow of turning.”

First Hand Experience ~

Jesus offers rest,
from our weariness
something we all need
first hand to experience.

For when we seek,
the comfort He imparts
His peace will start flowing
straight into our hearts.

Jesus offers relief,
from our daily burdens
something we all need
to heed and to hearken.

For when we release,
the weight of our care
His calm will alleviate
the load that we bear.

Jesus offers comfort,
relief and rest . . .
to all who are burdened
weary or stressed!

~~~~~~~~

Matthew 11:28-29

“Come unto me, all ye that
labour and are heavy laden,
and I will give you rest.

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.”

Seasons ~

I’ve suffered through seasons,
with pain too much to bear
periods of ongoing grief
where tears became my prayer.

I’ve sailed though seasons,
with carefree, untroubled days
weeks, months and even years
singing nothing but my praise.

I’ve struggled through seasons,
with doubt propelling me
to question why I believed
in the things I couldn’t see.

I’ve strolled through seasons,
with faith so unshakeable
my hope and trust in God
was clearly unbreakable.

I’ve been through many,
different kinds of seasons
and through them all I found
God had for each a reason!

“To every thing
there is a season,
and a time to every
purpose under the heaven:”

Troubles Abounding ~

In this fallen world . . .
they’ll be troubles abounding
worries and cares
conceptually confounding.

But, Jesus said we’re not,
to fret or to despair
but to hand over to Him
our every single care.

Each day there’s enough,
troubles of its own
packed full of anxiety
from the things unknown.

But, Jesus insisted,
we are not to dread
nor are we to panic
but to trust Him instead.

In this fallen world,
we’ll have plenty of distress
but, Jesus makes it clear
over them we needn’t obsess!

~~~~~~~

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.”

To Be That Person ~

We all need someone,
to lift us up when down
a special person
who is always around.

We all need an ear,
on which to rely
we all need a shoulder
to lay our heads and cry.

We all need a friend,
in which to run to
we all need a supporter
to help get us through.

We all need Jesus,
to encourage us
to be that person
someone else can trust.

We all need someone,
some times, some way
we all need each other
to lift us up and pray!

~~~~~~~~~

Ecclesiastes 4:9-10

“Two are better than one;
because they have a good
reward for their labour.

“For if they fall, the one will
lift up his fellow:
but woe to him that is
alone when he falleth;
for he hath not another
to help him up.”

Negative Thoughts ~

Negative thoughts,
coming from nowhere
bombarding our hearts
with distrust and despair.

From out of the blue,
they attack our mind
robbing us of our hope
leaving anxiety behind.

Negatives thoughts,
blown in like a whirlwind
til under their control
we find ourselves pinned.

From places unknown,
they come to the surface
assaulting our knowledge
of God and His purpose.

Negative thoughts,
we must take captive
to them we cannot be
inactive or passive!

~~~~~~~~

2 Corinthians 10:5

“Casting down imaginations,
and every high thing that
exalteth itself against
the knowledge of God,
and bringing into captivity
every thought to the
obedience of Christ;

Staying In This Boat ~

I’m staying in this boat,
I’m going with the flow
for Jesus will steer me
in the way I should go.

I will not be afraid,
I’ve nothing to fear
for in this boat with me
Jesus too is here.

I’m sticking with this ship,
perish I will not . . .
with Jesus at my side
I’ve no dread of thought.

I’m not going to sink,
my faith will keep me afloat
there’s no way I’ll go down
for Jesus controls this boat.

I’m keeping with this boat,
in it I’m going to stay
for I know the winds and sea
Jesus’ commands will obey!

~~~~~~~~

Matthew 8:23-27

“And when he was entered into a ship,
his disciples followed him.

And, behold, there arose a great tempest
in the sea, insomuch that the ship was
covered with the waves: but he was asleep.

And his disciples came to him, and awoke him,
saying, Lord, save us: we perish.

And he saith unto them, Why are ye fearful,
O ye of little faith? Then he arose, and
rebuked the winds and the sea;
and there was a great calm.

But the men marvelled, saying,
What manner of man is this,
that even the winds and the sea obey him!

Jesus Loves You Too ~

Jesus loves me,
I know this to be true
in fact I also know
He loves you too.

For in His Word,
He tells us why
how for our salvation
He was willing to die.

Jesus loves me,
I have no doubt
for in my life
I didn’t shut Him out.

I heard Him knock,
He came right in
forgave me at once
for all of my sin.

Jesus loves me,
He loves you too
so much that He gave
His life for you!

~~~~~~

John 3:16

“For God so loved the world,
that he gave his only
begotten Son, that whosoever
believeth in him should
not perish, but have
everlasting life.”

Just Chillin’ With My Lord ~

Today I am chillin’,
not going to get bothered
won’t let one little thing take
my peace from my Father.

I’m just going to kick back,
and rest here all the day
I’m not going to let anything
take our oneness away.

Today I’m taking it easy,
not going to get uptight
instead I will just soak in
all of Jesus’ calming light.

I’m just going to relax,
in the warmth of His love
and let His grace beam
down on me from above.

Today, I am chillin’
just me and my Lord
and if I fall asleep . . .
it’s not because I’m bored!

“I will both lay me down in peace,

God Sent Out His Word ~

From the beginning of time,
God sent out His Word
so throughout the universe
by all it’d be heard.

He gave us His Light,
so we could understand
the plan for salvation
He had for all of man.

Our hearts are enlighten,
once His Word enters in
to help us to recognize
the cause of our sin.

As we read and we study,
the Light shines brighter
and our confessions to God
makes our burdens lighter.

From the beginning of time,
God sent out His Light
simply so we’d keep . . .
heaven in our sight!

~~~~~~~~~~

John 1:1

“In the beginning was the Word,
and the Word was with God,
and the Word was God.”

“The entrance of thy words
giveth light;
it giveth
understanding
unto the simple.”

Our Future Inheritance ~

There’s an inheritance,
for those who are meek
there’s a promise of peace
to those who God seek.

There’s a lasting promise,
of a future blessing
for those who keep on . . .
into Jesus pressing.

There’s a land of hope,
promised upon adoption
where delightfulness flows
without any disruption.

There’s an abundance,
of calm and tranquility
for those whose attitude
is one of humility.

There’s an inheritance,
of a future destination
a promise of peace . . .
in all of its perfection!

I Shall Not Be Moved ~

Though, my troubles are many,
and surround me night and day
I shall not be moved . . .
for the Lord will make a way.

Though, my burdens are great,
and follow me wherever I go
I shall not be moved . . .
for the Lord’s peace l shall know.

Though, my enemies oppress me,
and try to hold me down
I shall not be moved . . .
for the Lord will keep me sound.

Though, my days are a vapor,
and the end may soon be near
I shall not be moved . . .
for in the Lord I’ve no fear.

Though, my nights are long,
and often filled with dread
I shall not be moved . . .
for on Jesus I rest my head!

and my salvation:

He is my defence;
I shall not be moved.”

Older To Bolder ~

Help me Lord,
I’m getting too old
coming apart
at each seam and fold.

My knees buckle,
wherever I walk
my forehead creases
whenever I talk.

Help me Lord,
my mind is going
my thoughts get lost
my age is showing.

My get up and go,
got up and went
my ears and eyes
are all but spent.

Help me Lord,
though I’m getting older
to be for You . . .
stronger and bolder!

Tender-Loving Care ~

When your pain,
is too much to bear
and you need some
tender-loving care.

Know that God,
is there for you
and will your pain
ease and soothe.

When you’re beat,
and broken down
and it’s too hard
to move around.

will strengthen you
and your weariness
He will lessen too.

When you can’t speak,
or open up your eyes
know that God still can . . .
hear and see your cries!

A Quiet Place ~

Thank You Lord,
for giving me
a place to go
when I’m weary.

A quiet spot,
for my mind
and Your peace
to come in line.

Thank You Lord,
for meeting me
when to You
I run and flee.

A hidden retreat,
for my heart
so more grace
You can impart.

Thank You Lord,
for being there
when I bring You
my daily care!
