Let Christ Be Seen ~

Let Christ be seen in you,
let His peace be felt
by those who in this life
defeat have been dealt.

Let His love be known,
let His grace be seen
by those who in this life
have been treated mean.

Let Christ be seen in you,
let His Way be shown
to those who in this life
the wrong one have known.

Let His mercy be displayed,
let His favor be found
by those who in this life
to satan have been bound.

Let Christ be seen in you,
let His love in you reflect . . .
God’s mercy, grace and favor
so to Him others may connect!

~~~~~~~~

Philippians 2:5

Let this mind be in you,
which was also in Christ Jesus:

2 Corinthians 12:9



It’s All About God’s Grace ~

It’s all about God’s grace,
not about what you do
it’s all about Jesus . . .
and what He did for you.

For grace is forgiving,
it frees you from your sin
it’s not something earned
or anything you can win.

It’s all about God’s grace,
His mercy and favor . . .
it’s all about having faith
in Christ, Jesus your Savior.

For grace is liberating,
there is no cost to you
Jesus paid the full price
there’s nothing left to do.

It’s all about God’s grace,
the confession of sin
it’s all about repentance
to be cleansed from within.

For grace will set you free,
from under satan’s claws
all you need is faith . . . .
for grace erased the laws.

It’s all about grace,
liberating and freeing
it is a gift from God . . .
well worth your receiving!

~~~~~~~

Ephesians 2:8

“For by grace are ye saved
through faith; and that not
of yourselves:
it is the gift of God:”

James 4:6


Gems of Truth ~

The Bible is packed,
with truth filled gems
seen through the eyes
of a righteous lens.

For as we look closely,
to the nuggets of grace
the ways of the world
we’ll no longer embrace.

We will live a life,
to God that is pleasing
godly and holy
as grace keeps increasing.

To these gems of truth,
we’ll not wander away
nor follow the path
leading others astray.

The Bible is full,
of hope filled jewels
leading to salvation . . .
if we follow the rules!

~~~~~~~~

Titus 2:11-13

For the grace of God that bringeth
salvation hath appeared to all men,

Teaching us that, denying ungodliness
and worldly lusts, we should live soberly,
righteously, and godly, in this present world;

Looking for that blessed hope,
and the glorious appearing of
the great God and our
Saviour Jesus Christ;

1 Corinthians 15:10


I See The Light ~

I see the Light,
I see it glowing . . .
I see the shadows
on sin it’s throwing.

It shines the Truth
upon the Way
it radiates Hope
of a more joyful day.

It reflects Love,
strength and power
its radiance makes
the darkness scour.

It glistens with grace,
it illuminates life
it opens the eye
to everlasting strife.

I see the Light,
I see it glowing . . .
and I know from Jesus
is where it is flowing!

~~~~~~~~

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.

Acts 26:18

To open their eyes, and to turn them
from darkness to light, and from
the power of Satan unto God,
that they may receive forgiveness
of sins, and inheritance among
them which are sanctified by
faith that is in me.

James 4:6


His Life, Not Mine ~

Lost in Jesus,
His life, not mine
His will for me
now to go fine.

Lost in Jesus,
for His own sake
so from the world
I’d make a break.

Lost in His love,
cursed no longer
His grace for me
makes me stronger.

Lost in His hope,
my cross to bear
my life now
rests in His care.

Lost in Jesus,
not my life to live
now that my heart
to Him I give!

~~~~~~

Matthew 10:38-39

And he that taketh
not his cross,
and followeth after me,
is not worthy of me.

He that findeth his life
shall lose it: and he that
loseth his life for
my sake shall find it

Despisers Of Truth ~

You can talk until,
you’re blue in the face
but, some don’t want
to hear about grace.

You can tell them about,
God and His mercy and love
but, they still won’t believe
in His kingdom above.

You can speak your mind,
all that you want
but, their transgressions
will not their soul’s haunt.

You can tell them Jesus,
died for their sin
but, their lives they won’t
ever give over to Him.

You can talk until,
your face turns blue . . .
but, for some Jesus we know
will still despise You!

~~~~~~~~

Acts 13:41

Behold, ye despisers, and wonder,
and perish: for I work a work in
your days, a work which ye shall
in no wise believe, though a
man declare it unto you.

Good Morning Quote ~06.13.21~


Oh, To Discover God ~

Oh, to discover,
the riches of wisdom
is to have a life
with God in rhythm.

To seek and to find,
the meaning of grace
is to have your soul
His mercy embrace.

Oh, to be a searcher,
of God’s counsel
is to have a heart
quiet and peaceful.

To find the direction,
in which you should go
is to have a mind
ready for Him to show.

Oh, to really discover,
what God is all about . . .
is to trust in Him . . .
without having any doubt!

~~~~~~~~

Romans 11:33

O the depth of the riches
both of the wisdom and
knowledge of God!
how unsearchable are
his judgments, and his
ways past finding out!

Lord, I love You ~

Lord have I told You lately,
just how much I love You . . .
have I expressed my gratitude
for all, for me You do?

Have I sung to You my praise,
for Your mercy and Your grace
have I told you I can’t wait
till I can thank You face to face?

Lord have I stressed to You,
the faith in You I have found
have I said I appreciate You
for keeping my heart sound?

Have I expressed You keep me,
pressing on each new day
have I told You how delighted
You’re my Light, Truth and Way?

Lord if I have neglected,
telling You these things lately
I want to make it clear right now
it’s how I feel about You daily!

God’s Hand Of Faithfulness ~

God’s hand of faithfulness,
can be seen in my life
though the times of rest
and those full of strife.

He held on to me,
with His merciful hand
as He revealed to me
what was for me His plan.

God’s hand of faithfulness,
led and guided me
through the days of peace
and those angry as a sea.

He wrote my name,
on His palm He inscribed
His promise to me
to always be at my side.

God’s hand of faithfulness,
has always been loyal
through the good times
throughout all my trials!

~~~~~~~~

1 Peter 5:6

Humble yourselves therefore
under the mighty hand of God,
that he may exalt you in due time:

Isaiah 49:16

Behold, I have graven thee
upon the palms of my hands;
thy walls are continually before me.

The Depth of God’s Mercy ~

When I am knee high,
in grief and sorrow
when I am anxious
about each tomorrow.

I look at the span,
of God’s mercy . . .
instead of the extent
of my worry.

When I am waist deep,
in the vast unknown
when fear’s grip
clinches my backbone

I look to the depth,
of God’s grace . . .
instead of the expanse
of the dark space.

When I am as low,
as I can possibly go . . .
I look to the favor
God on me bestows!

~~~~~

Hebrews 4:16

Let us therefore come
boldly unto the throne
of grace, that we may
obtain mercy, and find
grace to help in time of need.

Grace And Peace To You ~

Grace and peace to you,
my faith filled friends . . .
good health to you too
until this pandemic ends.

May God’s infinite mercy,
keep you safe and secure
so that through this storm
you’ll be able to endure.

Grace and peace to you,
to all faithful in Jesus . . .
may it be His strength . . .
you find in your weakness.

May onto Him you cast,
everything troubling
may He guard your heart
from fear and worrying.

Grace and peace to you,
my friends far and wide . . .
by this virus be not afraid
for God is at your side!

~~~~~

Ephesians 1:1-2

Paul, an apostle of Jesus
Christ by the will of God,
to the saints which are at
Ephesus, and to the faithful
in Christ Jesus:

1 Corinthians 1:3

Grace be unto you, and peace,
from God our Father, and from
the Lord Jesus Christ.

God’s Good Pleasure ~

Father, when I consider,
the good pleasure of Your will
it causes me to pause . . .
to be quiet and be still.

For out of Your goodness,
You sent Your beloved son
to offer redemption
to each and everyone.

Jesus, when I consider,
the richness of Your grace
it causes me to reflect
so Your life I can embrace.

For You came to fulfill,
Your Father’s adoption plan
gave up Your very own life
for all the children of man.

Father when I consider,
the depth of Your good pleasure
I see how much You love us all
without limits or measure!

~~~~~~~~

Philippians 2:13

For it is God which worketh
in you both to will and to do
of his good pleasure.

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!

~~~~~~~~

Psalm 118:6

The Lord is on my side;
I will not fear:
what can man do unto me?

Good Morning Quote ~01.12.21~


Where Grace Abounds ~

Where grace abounds,
salvation springs . . .
where salvation prevails
more grace it brings.

Where grace expands,
hope flourishes
where hope teems
more grace nourishes.

Where grace thrives,
righteousness expands
where virtue grows
more grace demands.

Where grace permeates.
trust infiltrates
where trust exists
more grace penetrates.

Where grace abounds,
more grace is given
where Jesus is found . . .
more grace is taken!

John 1:16

And of his fullness
have all we received,
and grace for grace.

God Guides My Feet ~

God guides my feet,
over mountain tops
onto high ground . . .
in faith, they do hop.

He leads my steps,
through jagged spaces
to prove to me . . .
significant is His grace.

He shines His light,
ahead of my steps
my soles He secures . . .
His love they project.

He takes me to places,
never before explored
to show me why it is . . .
I call Him my Lord.

He sets me up high,
gives me a glorious view
so His mercy my soul . . .
He can restore and renew!

~~~~~~~~

Psalm 18:33

He makes my feet
like the feet of deer,
And sets me on
my high places.
