A New Foundation ~

This coming New Year,
I’m redoing my Foundation
for it has started to creak
and its turning my faith weak.

I am going to rebuild it,
from the ground floor straight on up
Jesus will be the Corner Stone
so by every wind, I won’t get blown.

This coming New Year,
I’m getting back to the basics
all the wood, hay and stubble I keep
I’ll put into a rubbish-heap.

I’ll get back to the Gospel Truths,
then I’ll lay them upon the Rock
I’ll make sure they’re God proven
not ones construed by some human.

This coming New Year,
my Foundation will be transformed
and I pray it will bear the fire . . .
so I’ll be saved when I expire!

~~~~~~~~~~

Ephesians 2:20

“And are built upon the foundation
of the apostles and prophets,
Jesus Christ himself being
the chief corner stone;”

1 Corinthians 3:11-15

“For other foundation can no man lay
than that is laid, which is Jesus Christ.

Now if any man build upon this foundation
gold, silver, precious stones, wood, hay, stubble;

Every man’s work shall be made manifest:
for the day shall declare it, because
it shall be revealed by fire; and the
fire shall try every man’s work of
what sort it is.

If any man’s work abide which he
hath built thereupon,
he shall receive a reward.

If any man’s work shall be burned,
he shall suffer loss: but he himself
shall be saved; yet so as by fire.”

On The Rock ~

on-the-rock-christian-poetry-by-deborah-ann

I’m building my house on the Rock,
it’s going up brick by brick
the Word will be the mortar I use
so my faith in God will stick.

The Rock will be my anchor,
when a tempest comes my way
I’ll hold onto His power
until the tempter goes away.

When the winds attack me,
my house will never fall
for the Rock is the strength
that dwells inside each wall.

If floodwaters were to rise,
my house will not go under
for God’s grace is its foundation
and a testament to His wonder.

I’m building my house on the Rock,
not on a pile of sand . . .
I’m trusting God to keep it strong
so before Him I can stand!

~~~~~~~~~~~

Matthew 7: 23-24

“Therefore whoever hears these sayings
of Mine, and does them, I will liken
him to a wise man who built his house
on the rock: and the rain descended,
the floods came, and the winds blew and
beat on that house; and it did not
fall, for it was founded on the rock.


If Not for Jesus ~

If not for the Rock,
onto which I can cling
I would be destroyed
by the storms life brings.

If not for the Foundation,
onto which to plant my feet
I would be shaken . . .
my trust would deplete.

If not for the Cornerstone,
onto which I can lean
I would not have the faith
in the things unseen.

If not for the Fountain,
onto which to draw my hope
I would not have the strength
in my troubles to cope.

If not for the arms of Jesus,
into which I can fall
I would have nothing . . .
no, nothing at all!

“He only is my rock
and my salvation;
he is my defence;
I shall not be greatly moved.”

Fruits of Love ~

Rooted by Jeff Boriss free photo#5262

Plant your roots in the Bible,
water them every single day
feed upon the Word of God
grow in the righteous way.

Nurture yourself in the Bible,
let Jesus’ grace take a firm hold
then you’ll produce fruits of love
beautifully, bountifully bold.

Establish yourself in the Bible,
firmly set down your foundation
let the roots of your faith
be grounded in your salvation.

Plant your treasures in heaven,
be rooted in the Kingdom to come
pray for the Holy Spirit’s indwelling
so to root-rot you won’t succumb!

Ephesians 3:17
King James Version

“That Christ may dwell in your hearts by faith;
that ye, being rooted and grounded in love,”

Lord, You’re My Everything!

If God is For Us by Chris Kennedy free photo #13745

Lord, You are my hope,
no one can break my trust in You
or shatter apart my faith
as long as I remain loyal and true.

Lord, You are my souls support,
no one can shake my foundation
or up-root me from Thy hold
as long as You’re my hearts fixation.

Lord, You are my strength,
no one can take me away from Thee
or shift me towards another
as long as Your Spirit lives in me.

Lord, You are the Lord of my life,
no one can steal that away
or rob me from this truth
as long as from You I do not stray.

For Lord, You are my everything,
there is no one, not one soul who . . .
can take, shake, break, or steal
the love I have for You!
