Today’s The Day ~

Today Father,
is a brand new one
a time to be glad
for Your living Son.

A day to rejoice,
for all things new
a day to give . . .
my praise to You.

Today Father,
You have made
for me to remember
the price Jesus paid.

A day to reflect,
on His love and grace
a time before Him
my sin I need to face.

Today Father,
is the day Jesus rose
oh, how glad I am . . .
my heart He knows!

~~~~~~

Psalm 118:24

This is the day which the Lord
hath made; we will rejoice
and be glad in it.

Happy RESURRECTION Day


Forsaken Cries ~

Lord, I can envision,
the compassion in Your eyes
I can hear You calling . . .
out Your forsaken cries.

I can picture the thorns,
wrapped around Your head
I can see my sin
for which You died and bled.

Lord, I can visualize,
the angry crowd yelling
crucify, crucify Him . . .
amidst tempers swelling.

But, I can only fathom,
Your suffering and agony
as Your love for the world
was displayed at Cavalry.

Lord, I cannot describe,
how You felt that day . . .
but, I know to Your Father
You are the only Way!

~~~~~~~~

Matthew 27:46

And about the ninth hour Jesus
cried with a loud voice, saying,
Eli, Eli, lama sabachthani?
that is to say, My God, my God,
why hast thou forsaken me?

John 14:6

Jesus saith unto him,
I am the way, the truth,
and the life: no man cometh
unto the Father, but by me.

Where Faith and Love Dwells ~

Sometimes I wander through,
 the valleys of my soul . . .
lingering near the streams of life
when I felt well and whole.

I ponder the times Jesus filled in,
the empty and void space
where His love for me flowed
like a river full of endless grace.

As I stroll along the rugged clefts,
I can see the hard times too
as I roam all around them
His mercy for me shines through.

I come across the mountains,
that I had to hike up to . . .
some of them I never thought
the hard climb I could ever do.

But I remember seeing Jesus,
standing upon the crest
calling down to me
“Come, I’ll give you rest.”

Sometimes I like to wander,
through life’s hills and dells
and go deep into my soul . . .
where faith and love dwells!

Ephesians 3:17

That Christ may dwell
in your hearts by faith;
that ye, being rooted

If Today You Would Hear ~

Today if you would hear,
if your ears you’d open
you will hear the truth
be told and spoken.

For God will speak,
right to your heart
closing the chasm
keeping you apart.

Today if you would listen,
you’d will be able to hear
Jesus calling you
to come close and near.

For He wants you to know,
for your sin’s He died
how He is waiting for you
with arms stretched out wide.

Today if you would hear,
what God has to say . . .
you will discover the Truth
to the new Life and Way!

~~~~~~~~

John 8:12

Then spake Jesus again
unto them, saying, I am
the light of the world:
he that followeth me shall
not walk in darkness, but
shall have the light of life.

If Not For Jesus ~

If it were not for Jesus,
I would not have made it
if it were not for Him . . .
giving me a new spirit.

But, once He came along,
He put flesh into my heart
and now to the world
I am no longer a part.

If it were not for Jesus,
I would have turned back
if it were not for His Word
to help keep me on track.

But, He shines His Light,
on the Truth and Way
so from the narrow path
I’ll not wander or stray.

If it were not for Jesus,
I would have surely given in . . .
to the pressures of the world
to go out again and sin!

~~~~~~~~

John 8: 1011

When Jesus had lifted
up himself, and saw none
but the woman, he said
unto her, Woman, where
are those thine accusers?
hath no man condemned thee?

She said, No man, Lord.
And Jesus said unto her,
Neither do I condemn thee:
go, and sin no more.

I’m Completely Convinced ~

I am convinced I belong to God,
that nothing can separate us
I am sure and I am confident . . .
and so in Him I put all my trust.

Storms may toss and blow my way,
but I will not be swept out to sea
for I am sure and I am confident . . .
through each one God is with me.

There’s nothing man can say,
to break God’s and my alliance
I am sure and I am confident . . .
for on Him I put my full reliance.

The earth may shake and quiver,
yet my faith in God will stand
for I am sure and I am confident . . .
nothing can snatch me out of His hand.

I am convinced I belong to God,
my victory is in Christ alone
I am sure and I am confident . . .
one day He will take me home!

~~~~~~~~

Romans 8:38-39


“For I am persuaded, that neither death, nor
life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers,
nor things present, nor things to come, Nor
height, nor depth, nor any other creature,
shall be able to separate us from the love of
God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.”

Encouragement Needed ~

We all need encouragement,
on this journey we call life
we all need a stretched out hand
to help us with our daily strife.

For it can be a painful trip,
if we don’t help one another
for the tough times are easier
when they are done together.

We all need some motivation,
on this voyage to get to heaven
we all need an inspiration boost
when our heart’s are down laden.

For it can be a weary trek,
without having some backing
to help us get over the bumps
when our own faith is lacking.

We all need encouragement,
as we make our journey here
we all need motivation . . .
until the final trump we hear!

Oh, Faithful Is Jesus ~

Oh, faithful is Jesus,
who our sin’s forgive
who when grace is needed
more of it He gives.

How generous is He,
who gives us each day
the Light that shines
on the Truth and Way.

Oh, faithful is He,
who purifies and clean
who when love is desired
more of it we can glean.

How unselfish is He,
who died for ours sins
so our very souls
He could redeem and win.

Oh, how faithful is Jesus,
who had no quilt or shame
that He should live to die . . .
for our eternal gain!

If we confess our sins

Fear’s Repellent ~

The perfect love of God,
fear drives back
it gives believers . . .
the faith they lack.

It removes all doubt,
thwarts uncertainty
it gives us assurance . . .
of heaven’s eternity.

The perfect love of God,
knows no dread
it makes believers . . .
in Him instead.

It holds no torment,
no trepidation
it gives us certainty
of our salvation.

The perfect love of God,
is fear’s repellent
it makes believers . . .
out of those repentant!

~~~~~~~~

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.

I See God’s Glory ~

I see God’s wonder,
I see His Light . . .
it does not fade
into the night.

It shines brighter,
than the morning sun
it radiates the Light
of His begotten Son.

I see the distance,
between God and man
I see His love . . .
fill the empty span.

I see the future,
forever it goes on
I see a hereafter
when all evil is gone.

I see God’s glory,
making all things new
and I pray you see it . . .
for yourself too!

What Can Man Do To Me ~

What can man do to me,
what of mine can he control
he may take my livelihood
but, never, ever my soul.

He may knock me down,
spit right into my face
but, he can never shame me
out of my faith in grace.

What can man say to me,
what hateful things can he state
he can take away my freedoms
but, never, ever my eternal fate.

He may chase after me,
with a disgust that could kill
but, he can never stop me
from remaining in God’s will.

What can man do to me,
what can he ever, ever say . . .
to make me stop believing
Jesus is the Life, Truth and Way!

An Upward Look ~

An upward look,
will save you
bring heaven
right into view.

Just one glace,
at Jesus alone
for your sins
to be atoned.

A vertical glimpse,
into the Light
will bring His glory
into your sight.

Just one peek,
at His undying grace
so by faith His love
you may embrace.

An upward look,
a turn of your eyes
a repentant heart . . .
a lost soul’s cries!

For God sent His Son,
to love and forgive
so with Him in heaven
we can forever live.

God’s gift of Life,
is ours this day . . .
for the Truth came down
to show us the Way!

Though there are many,
who don’t think so . . .
I know God’s truth
is the one line to toe.

There’s only one truth,
that I can swallow
there’s only one path
that I will follow.

Through there are many,
roads that I could take
I’ll take the one leading
right to the straight gate.

There’s only one truth,
that I believe in . . .
there’s only one sure way
this faithful race I can win!

Though we are flanked,
with disorder and strife
Jesus promised to us
His strength for this life.

Through we’re entrenched,

we’d meet Him in the air.

God’s gift of peace,

for Jesus has overcome . . .
this world’s turbulence!

God’s gift of faith,
is offered to everyone
to all who will receive
the love of His Son.

For those who accept,
Jesus died for their sin
the battle for their soul
with satan they’ll win.

God’s gift of faith,

when from wickedness
they chose to abstain.

For those who receive,
the Spirit’s indwelling
will no longer find . . .
sinful thing’s compelling.

God’s gift of faith,

Anchor Of Our Soul ~

An Anchor to the soul,
the hope of our certainty
Jesus became the way
to everlasting eternity.

Sure and steadfast,
in the truth grounded
our salvation in Him
is securely founded.

The veil has been lifted,
through Christ we enter in
in His righteousness
no longer bound to sin.

To His Father in heaven,
He gave us the boldness
to approach His throne
in the cloak of newness.

The Anchor of our soul,
Jesus is our security . . .
for He paid sin’s penalty
giving us all impunity!

Too Wonderful For Words ~

Too wonderful for words,
too glorious to explain . . .
is what God has in store
for those in Him who remain.

No one has ever seen,
no eyes have been given
a glimpse into paradise
for those who are forgiven.

Too wondrous for the heart,
too marvelous for the mind
the glory God will bring
to those no longer blind.

No ear has ever heard,
no listener has received
the tones of pure delight
from those no more deceived.

Too wonderful for words,
too glorious to understand . . .
the blissful sights and sounds
awaiting those who withstand!

~~~~~~~~~~

1 Corinthians 2:9

God’s Ways Are Better ~

God’s ways are not ours,
for ours ways are skewed
and often God’s direction
we don’t want to include.

We think we understand,
what God wants us to do
but we fail to look at things
from His point of view.

God’s plans are not ours,
for ours are often rash
before consulting Him
out the door we dash.

We believe we can reason,
with our own reasoning
and to God’s instructions
we are not listening.

God’s ways and plans,
are always better . . .
when we follow them
to the letter!

~~~~~~~~~~

Isaiah 55:8-9

For my thoughts
are not your thoughts,
neither are your ways
my ways, saith the Lord.

For as the heavens are higher
than the earth, so are my ways
higher than your ways, and my
thoughts than your thoughts.

this is what I receive
God’s the only true One
and Jesus is His Son.

This is real salvation,

this is to have trust . . .
only Jesus can save us.

This is my truth,
this is my reality
this is my belief
in totality!

all lives are relevant
no matter who we are
He holds no prejudice.

For He knows we are,
all created equally . . .
what matters most to Him
is treating others decently.

To God,
all lives are viable
everyone matters . . .
to Him all are valuable!
