I Groan For The Day ~

I groan for the day
Jesus returns . . .
I moan for the ones
who cannot discern.

I groan for the day,
when they’ll be no tears
I moan for the ones
who God do not fear.

I groan for the day,
of peaceful bliss
I moan for the ones
who eternity will miss.

I groan for the day,
I will be with the saints
I moan for the ones
who in the race did faint.

I groan for the day,
when with Jesus I’ll be
I moan it’s not to late
for blind eyes to see!

~~~~~~~~

Romans 8:23

And not only they, but ourselves also,
which have the firstfruits of the Spirit,
even we ourselves groan within ourselves,
waiting for the adoption, to wit,
the redemption of our body.

My Soul’s Delight ~

My soul delights in those,
who trust and wait on Me
it gives My heart pleasure
when blind eyes start to see.

They are My faithful servants,
to whom I will uphold
the elect I have chosen
to gather into My fold.

I have poured out My Spirit,
on those who are the meek
for on Me their sights are set
and My will they do seek.

They call me their Lord,
I call them My sheep
they know to follow Me
for their souls I will keep.

Into righteousness I call them,
in My glory they’ll rise and sing
behold all things come to pass
things new to them I will bring!

~~~~~~~~~

Ephesians 1:4-5

According as he hath chosen
us in him before the foundation
of the world, that we should be
holy and without blame
before him in love:

Having predestinated us unto
the adoption of children by
Jesus Christ to himself,
according to the good
pleasure of his will,

Psalm 100:3

Know ye that the Lord he is God:
it is he that hath made us, and not
we ourselves; we are his people,
and the sheep of his pasture.

Make Today The Day ~

Make today the day,
you give to God your heart
make the decision . . .
from the world to depart.

For you do not know,
if tomorrow will even be
or if a new day . . .
you will again ever see.

Make right now the hour,
of your salvation . . .
take the time right now
to escape damnation.

For Jesus wants you to be,
with Him in paradise
by excepting for your sins
His blood sacrifice.

Make today the the day,
you repent and confess
and with His forgiveness
your soul He will bless!

~~~~~~~~

Psalm 90:12

So teach us to number our days,
that we may apply our hearts

Consecrate yourselves today
to the Lord, even every man
upon his son, and upon his brother;
that he may bestow upon you
a blessing this day.

Clouds Of Hopelessness ~

When clouds of hopelessness,
gather above your head . . .
when skies turn thunderous
as darkness they spread.

Look past the gloominess,
the misery and despair
and the hope you’ve found
to the heavens declare.

When shadows of dismay,
start to mess with your head
when shades of their distress
fill your thoughts with dread.

Look past the grimness,
the bleakness and gloom
and keep in mind that hope
in heaven you have a room.

When clouds of hopelessness,
cast shadows of desperation . . .
just keep your hope focused
on your eternal destination!

~~~~~~~~

Galatians 5:5

For we through the Spirit
wait for the hope of
righteousness by faith

Good Morning Quote ~08.03.22~


The Road Into Heaven ~

The road into heaven,
isn’t on a street of clover
it’s full of dips and ditches
large bumps to get over.

It’s chuck-full of potholes,
to maneuver through
gaps and depressions
with lots of pitfalls too.

The road into heaven,
isn’t on a street named easy
it’s full of twists and turns
with curves that are sneaky.

It’s full of detours,
that will slow you down
roadblocks and delays
you’ll have to get around.

The road into heaven,
is on a One Way street
there is no other path . . .
if Jesus you want to meet!

~~~~~~~~

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.”

A New King ~

One day there will be,
on this earth a new King
and a new morality
He is going to bring.

Over all the universe,
He is going to reign
the depraved swamp
He is going to drain.

He will be the leader,
of every single land
for the whole world
He’ll hold in His hand.

There will be a river,
where living waters flow
the Truth, Life and Way
all the people will know.

There’ll be no obstacles,
that will stand in His way
for satan and his demons
souls will no longer sway.

One day there will be,
a new King on this earth
and the whole wide world
will witness its rebirth!

~~~~~~~~

And the Lord shall be king over
all the earth: in that day shall

The Journey Into Faith ~

The journey into faith,
is not made by sight
but through the lens
of Jesus’ perfect Light.

It’s a simple act of faith,
in His undying grace
as His forgiveness . . .
you begin to embrace.

It begins with a step,
out of the darkness
into a new life . . .
no longer hopeless.

It fills you with joy,
to keep you pursuing
the kind of love . . .
that is daily renewing.

The journey into faith,
by sight isn’t made . . .
but by the Light of Jesus
that will never fade!

~~~~~~~~

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:

Those Who Are Meek ~

Blessed are the meek,
those who have humility
those who for their sins
have found impunity.

For they are forgiven,
by grace they are saved
and from their past ways
they’ve escaped unscathed.

Blessed are the meek,
those on the straight path
those who understand
the effects of God’s wrath.

For to the world’s way,
they are not conformed
for in Jesus they’ve been
completely transformed.

Blessed are the meek,
those who seek peace
for they’ll inherit a new earth
that will never decease!

Blessed are the meek:
for they shall inherit the earth.

On A Road Trip ~

I’ve been on a road trip,
for many of years . . .
some days filled with joy
others soaked in tears.

It hasn’t been an easy ride,
God knows its been hard
but His love left me . . .
by the pain unscarred.

At times it was a struggle,
others were but a breeze
and often I found myself
down on both my knees.

I know it is not over,
until God says so . .
so I’m going to endure
till it’s time for me to go.

I’ve been on a road trip,
filled with up and downs
but, I won’t give up . . .
until I get my life’s crown!

~~~~~~~~

James 1:12

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.

I Want To Be For Jesus ~

I want to be for Jesus,
a shinning example
I want His life in mine
to glowingly resemble.

So I will need to work on,
having true humility
so that I can radiate
His loving tranquility.

I want to be for Jesus,
a vivid, promising light
I want His peace in me
to beam ever bright.

So I will need to work out,
my own salvation
so I can emit for Him
my joy and elation.

I want to be for Jesus,
what He is to me . . .
I want His love to be
all that people see!

Depressing Times ~

Depressing times,
takes a lot of hope
a true faith in God
to be able to cope.

For without faith,
hope there can’t be
to keep us believing
in what we can’t see.

Discouraging seasons,
takes a lot of trust
it takes the believer
inside all of us.

For without trust,
there can’t be belief
for the hope of having
everlasting relief.

Time’s depressing,
season’s discouraging
takes faith, trust and hope
constantly nourishing!

~~~~~~~~

Romans 12:12

Rejoicing in hope;
patient in tribulation;
continuing instant in prayer;

Proverbs 3:5

Trust in the Lord
with all thine heart;
and lean not unto
thine own understanding.

God’s Cup Is Brimming ~

God’s cup is brimming,
with His mercies and grace . .
He desires nothing more
than to see us finish the race.

So He gives us strength,
whenever ours is weak
keeping us humble
so we may remain meek.

He renews our faith,
so like eagles we’ll soar
in storms He helps us
to rise over the roar.

His anger is slow,
as we stumble along
His love is steadfast
to keep our trust strong.

He forgives and forgets,
our sins and our shame
He provides salvation
to all who call on His name.

God’s cup is brimming,
with compassion and favor
so He sent His own Son . . .
to be our personal Savior!

~~~~~~~~

Lamentations 3:22-23

It is of the Lord’s mercies
that we are not consumed,
because his compassion’s fail not.

They are new every morning:

If Only I Could ~

If only I could collect,
in the world all the hate
I’d show it the way . . .
to the narrow gate.

I would let it know,
how to let its anger go
so God’s love instead
could begin to flow.

If only I could glean,
all the world’s wickedness
I’d show it the way
to eternal happiness.

I would let it know,
how evil is never good
and how it is satan’s
favorite falsehood.

If only I could gather up,
all the hate and evilness
I would show it the way . . .
to eternal peacefulness!

~~~~~~~~

Proverbs 10:12

Hatred stirreth up strifes:
but love covereth all sins.

Romans 1:29-32

Being filled with all unrighteousness,
fornication, wickedness, covetousness,
maliciousness; full of envy, murder,
debate, deceit, malignity; whisperers,

Backbiters, haters of God, despiteful,
proud, boasters, inventors of evil things,
disobedient to parents,

Without understanding, covenantbreakers,
without natural affection, implacable, unmerciful:

Who knowing the judgment of God,
that they which commit such things
are worthy of death, not only do the same,
but have pleasure in them that do them.

Born Of God ~

Born of God,
a sinner of the past
holding onto . . .
my faith steadfast.

The evil one,
cannot touch me
under his power
no longer willing to be.

Now I am of God,
I have His protection
for He gives to me
truth and direction.

The world’s no longer,
a place I call home
for it’s where man’s
wickedness roams.

A child of God,
from sinning set free
now that Jesus . . .
lives inside of me!

~~~~~~~~

1 John 5:18-20

We know that whosoever
is born of God sinneth not;
but he that is begotten of
God keepeth himself,
and that wicked one
toucheth him not.

And we know that we are
of God, and the whole world
lieth in wickedness.

And we know that the Son of God
is come, and hath given us an
understanding, that we may know
him that is true, and we are in him
that is true, even in his Son Jesus Christ.
This is the true God, and eternal life.

Tears Fall From Up In Heaven ~

Tears fill up their ducts,
with deep sorrow they fall from
for His eyes see the sadness . . .
of the days still yet to come.

They well within their rims,
till they begin to overflow
for His eyes see the grief . . .
of what only He could know.

They trickle down His cheeks,
as they slowly start to run
for His eyes see the world . . .
without the love of His Son.

They flood from their brims,
and puddle onto the floor
for His eyes see the day . . .
this world will be no more.

Tears fall from up in heaven,
like a thunderous mighty rain
so many still live their lives . . .
in futileness and in vain.

God cries for the unsaved,
the lost, the unforgiven . . .
His tears reflect those who reject
what His Son has so freely given!

~~~~~~~~~

Psalm 78:40

How oft did they provoke him
in the wilderness,
and grieve him in the desert!

Luke 19:41

“And when He was come near,
He beheld the city, and wept over it.”

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.

Romans 6:23


Into This Sinner’s Soul ~

God took my broken life,
healed and made it whole
empty His love and mercy
right into this sinner’s soul.

He rescued me from this world,
the direction I was headed in
helped me to grasp to its ways
only lead to death and sin.

He gave me a heart of flesh,
removed the stony one
showed me the way to Him
was only through His Son.

He gave me ears to hear,
the eyes I needed to see
so I’d know how much . .
He was in love with me.

God took this sinner’s soul,
once doomed and hopeless
saving me from going . . .
into the pit ~ bottomless!

Come and hear, all ye that fear God,

I’m happy to vacate,
on earth my little space
so I can be with You
in a more peaceful place.

Take me to the room,
You’ve prepared for me
so with You in heaven . . .
I may forever be.

Beam me up Lord,
I’m so ready to depart
for, I no longer want . . .
in this world to be a part!

and remain shall be caught
up together with them
in the clouds, to meet the Lord
in the air: and so shall
we ever be with the Lord.

A Love Letter From God ~

Today I received,
from God a love letter
I opened up my Bible
here is what I read . . .

I am your Creator,
I formed and molded you
before you were born . . .
I knitted you together too.

I’m the remedy to your needs,
I am your soothing balm
I’m the peace in your storm
I am that voice in the calm.

I’m all the grace you need,
in Me there’s eternal life
I came so that I could bear
the burden of your strife.

I am your staff of comfort,
I will shield and protect you
through life’s complexities
together we’ll get through.

I am the anchor of your soul,
a safe place to run and hide
for I will never forsake you . . .
I’ll always be at your side.

I’m the lamp unto your way,
with my Word I will guide
I am the One who you feel
stirring up deep inside.

I am your Creator,
I knew you from the start
that is why I gave to you . . .
for Me a loving heart!

Psalm 37:11


A Call For Praise ~

A time to worship,
a call for praise
a time a new song
to God to raise.

For all He’s done,
for all He’s doing
a time to rejoice
with joyful singing.

A time for music,
a call for melody
a time to display
jubilant revelry.

For all Jesus did,
for all He will do
a time to relish
all things made new.

A time for song.
a call to sing . . .

Psalm 33:1-4

Rejoice in the Lord,
O ye righteous:

Sing unto him a new song;
play skilfully with a loud noise.

For the word of the Lord is right;
and all his works are done in truth.

Weeds ~

Life is full of weeds,
we need to pluck
before in our hearts
they become stuck.

For if we don’t uproot,
their suffocating base
we won’t be able to run
or win the faithful race.

Weeds are full of life,
needing to be obliterated
lest our faith in God
will become manipulated.

For if we do not rid,
their strangling hold on us
satan will pulverize
all our hope and trust.

Life is full of weeds,
weeds are full of life . . .
we must eradicate them
or face eternal strife!

Matthew 13:26-30

But when the blade was sprung up,

children of the kingdom;
but the tares are the

The enemy that sowed them
is the devil; the harvest
is the end of the world;
and the reapers are the angel

He repairs hearts,

heals the spirit

where pain hides
and sin depresses.

surpassing anything
we could ever find.

To those in need,
grace He freely gives
for only He knows . . .
how to truly forgive.

He fills in the hole,
He’s the missing piece
only Jesus can bring
true rest and peace!
