Spiritual Air ~

Some times a spiritual breath,
we all need to take in . . .
to expel the soot and grime
of living in a world full of sin.

We need to slowly inhale,
the promises of God Word
so we can draw upon . . .
the truth we have heard.

Sometimes we all need,
to come up for spiritual air . . .
so God our hearts and minds
He can renew and repair.

We need to oxidize our souls,
with all of God’s goodness
till we’re at peace and rest
with His almightiness.

Sometimes we all need,
to take a long breather . . .
so we can remind ourselves
just why we are a believer!

Job 33:4

The spirit of God
hath made me,
and the breath
of the Almighty
hath given me life.

I am Thankful ~

Today I am thankful,
for my daily bread
for the Holy Spirit
by whom I am lead.

For the abundance,
of faith and grace
for Jesus’ strength
to stay in the race.

Today I am grateful,
to my Father above
for His tender mercy
His wondrous love.

For His Goodness,
all He provides
for the power
He daily supplies.

Lord, today I’m thankful,
oh, so grateful too . . .
for all You bless me with
for all ~ for me You do!

Searching For Truth ~

Some people search,
high and low . . .
yet the truth
they never know.

For they look to man,
for ways to cope
instead of to God
for faith and hope.

Some people seek,
all over the place
yet true peace . . .
they never embrace.

For they look to people,
for their happiness
instead of to God
for His goodness.

Some people search,
where ever they will
but only God’s love . . .
can their hearts still!

~~~~~~~~~~

Jeremiah 29:13

And ye shall seek me,
and find me, when ye
shall search for me
with all your heart.

John 17:17

Sanctify them through
thy truth: thy word is truth.

Word Garden ~

There is a place of calm,
for all of us to find . . .
a place to just let go
and find peace of mind.

Mine is in God’s garden,
amongst His Word I do reap
promises of green pastures
the gathering of His sheep.

Strolling along the path,
I bow down to smell a rose
the scent of His undying love
in my heart forever grows.

As I walk the narrow way,
I stop to pick a verse . . .
I’m in awe by His goodness
in His grace I’m immersed.

I stop and sit upon the bench,
under the arbor of my soul
I rest in the knowledge . . .
God is always in control!

Filled With God Goodness ~

I want to know God,
in all of His Fullness
so I can understand
all of His Goodness.

I want to discover,
the power He imparts
so that it can change
every inch of my heart.

I want to know Jesus,
His gift of eternal life
so I can be set free
of my earthly strife.

I want to be steadfast,
strong and consistent
so to fleshly desires
I’ll be readily resistant.

I want to understand God,
His Fullness, His Goodness
I want to take hold of Jesus
His Love, His Forgiveness!

His strength that guards
both the heart and mind.

May be able to comprehend with all
saints what is the breadth,

ye might be filled with all
the fulness of God.

A Plate of Grace ~

Come this Thanksgiving . . .
there’ll be no turkey with dressing
I’m only going to serve a plate
of gratitude for God’s blessings.

As a substitute for candied yams,
we’ll feast on His loving kindness
taste the sweetness of His favor
as we reflect on His righteousness.

There’ll be no rolls and butter,
instead, we’ll eat of the Bread of Life
with gratitude we’ll give our thanks
to Jesus for bearing our strife.

In place of mashed potatoes,
there’ll be praise piled just as high
we’ll sing our adoration
in place of having pumpkin pie.

The only beverage we will drink,
will be from the one True Vine
with humility on our lips
our thanks will be as sweet as wine.

Come this Thanksgiving . . .
there’ll be no traditional dinner
instead I’ll serve a plate of grace
to anyone who is a sinner!

~~~~~~~

Psalm 7:17

I will praise the Lord
according to his righteousness:
and will sing praise to the name
of the Lord most high.

of our Lord Jesus Christ;

May I Soon Not Forget ~

Lord, may I not soon forget,
the favors You’ve granted me
nor how You made a path . . .
across my own Red Sea.

May my praises for You,
keep me humble all my days
may I not forget to walk
and follow all Your ways.

Lord, may I not complain,
nor forget Your mighty deeds
may I always acknowledge
it’s You who supplies my needs.

May my praise rise each day,
and lay upon my lips at night
may I not forget Your counsel
nor the pillars of Your light.

Lord, may I not forget,
the works of Your mighty hand
nor how a path for me . . .
You made to the promised land!

Wide Awake ~

When in the morning,
when I am wide awake
I read the Good News . . .
and not listen to the fake.

For when I turn on,
and tune in my television
there’s so much evil
streaming into my vision.

But, when I read my Bible,
the airwaves are full of love
peace, joy and eternal hope
airing to me from above.

The Scriptures broadcasts,
the wonder of God’s goodness
and I don’t need a satellite
to transmit to me His kindness.

When in the morning,
I rise from my warm bed
I shun my television
and read the Good News instead!

Peace Abounding ~

May God give you peace,
of both heart and mind
may He lead you always
His tranquility to find.

May He guide you to,
His water’s calm and still
may their quiet ripples
His peacefulness instill.

May God give you peace,
beyond your reasoning
so your faith in Him
can keep on increasing.

May He direct you into,
pastures lush and green
so on His gentleness
you may rest and lean.

May God give you peace,
surreal and astounding
so the hope in your heart
continues abounding!

As The New Year Unfolds ~

As the old year departs,
and the new one arrives
let us all show our thanks
to the One who provides.

Let us all worship,
His almighty name
so to His goodness
our lips will proclaim.

As the calendar peels,
one page after another
let us all give praise
to our heavenly Father.

Let us all sing,
over each new season
lest we forget
our blessing of freedom.

As the new year unfolds,
as the old one leaves us . . .
lets forge onward
with the One we trust!

“Bless the Lord, O my soul:
and all that is within me,

Satisfied ~

Today I don’t need,
a feast on my table
for God’s goodness
is my everyday staple.

For, I am content,
sated and satisfied
as God’s lovingkindness
leaves me gratified.

Today I don’t desire,
a big turkey feed
for God’s generosity
is all that I need.

For, I am blessed,
pleased and satisfied
now that in Jesus
I have been sanctified.

Today I don’t need,
to consume or to eat
for, my hunger and thirst
in Jesus are complete!

~~~~~~~~

“And Jesus said unto them,
I am the bread of life:
he that cometh to me shall
never hunger;
and he that believeth on me
shall never thirst.

Let us see You,

give us an eye-full
of Your loving-kindness.

Open our eyes Lord,
to all of the splendor
of living a life . . .
to You, in surrender.

Let us always dwell,
on all that is right
give us a glimpse into
the lamp of Your light.

Open our eyes Lord,
to Your Word wondrous
so we may see how much
to us, You are generous!

and I’m loving the fullness
now that I have tasted God
I’m filled with all His goodness!

My Peace Is Yours ~

John_14_27_Bible_Quote free photo

My peace is yours,
come rest here with Me
give Me all of your cares
and all your fears will flee.

Don’t you know,
I purchased peace for you
the day I died, was the day
all things became brand new.

Come and sit here with Me,
let not your worries grow
let Me take them from you
so My peace you will know.

Don’t you be afraid,
leave the world far behind
My peace cannot be found
in the heart of mankind.

My peace is yours,
sit here with Me for a while
soak in all of My goodness
I promise it’ll be worthwhile!

John 14:27
King James Version

“Peace I leave with you, my peace I give unto you:
