From Despair To Hope ~

From despair to hope,
from misery to ecstasy
are those who Jesus . . .
makes not their enemy.

For they’ve tasted mercy,
the truth they have kissed
His peaceful righteousness
they have not dismissed.

From dismay to trust,
from heartbreak to relief
are those who though faith
now have a grace belief.

For though they’re fraught,
troubled and stressed
they know just how much
they are truly blessed.

From desperation to hope,
from emptiness to rapture . . .
are the hearts and souls
Jesus has captured!

~~~~~~~~~~

2 Corinthians 4:8

We are troubled
on every side,
yet not distressed;
we are perplexed,
but not in despair;

Persecuted,
but not forsaken;
cast down,
but not destroyed;

Always bearing about
in the body the dying
of the Lord Jesus,
that the life also of Jesus
might be made manifest
in our body.

Psalm 85:10

Mercy and truth
are met together;
righteousness and peace
have kissed each other.

God’s Gift of Jesus ~

A Child, a Babe,
today is born
the Son of Man
Salvation’s horn.

Our Mighty God,
the Sacrificial Lamb
fulfills the Word
of the great I AM.

A Carpenter, a King,
brings Good Cheer . . .
of His Kingdom
soon coming here.

Our Counselor, Our Rock,
our Father Everlasting
long ago Wise Men
were heard forecasting.

A Child is born,
God’s gift to you and I
for the Morning Star
has risen in the sky!

~~~~~~~~

Isaiah 9:6

For to us a child is born,
to us a son is given;
and the government
shall be upon his shoulder,
and his name shall be
called Wonderful Counselor,
Mighty God, Everlasting Father,
Prince of Peace.

Have a Merry CHRISTmas and a Blessed New Year


God’s Gift Of Life ~

God’s gift of Life,
paving the Way
so for our sins
we not have to pay.

For His Word arrived,
on CHRISTmas morn
when to a virgin
His Son was born.

God’s gift of Life,
the True foundation
our Cornerstone
to eternal salvation.

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!

~~~~~~~~~~

Romans 6:23

For the wages of sin
is death;
but the gift of God
is eternal life through
Jesus Christ our Lord.

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.

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!

If You Will Seek ~

If to God you draw near,
He will hear your cry
if you confess your sins
your heart He’ll purify.

If you will seek His face,
He will hear your prayer
if you call on His name
your life He will repair.

If you return to God,
you will be restored
if with your whole heart
make Him again your Lord.

If you seek His presence,
His mercy will be found . . .
if your idols you’d remove
to Him you would be bond.

If you were to God,
draw once more near . . .
nothing in this world
would you again hold dear!

~~~~~~~~~~

James 4:8

Draw nigh to God,
and he will draw nigh to you.
Cleanse your hands, ye sinners;
and purify your hearts,
ye double minded.

Isaiah 55:6-7

Let the wicked forsake his way,
and the unrighteous man his thoughts:
and let him return unto the Lord,
and he will have mercy upon him;
and to our God, for he will
abundantly pardon.

God, My Trust

God, my Trust,
my Assurance, my Certainty,
You bring into my life
understanding and clarity.

For Your Word is precise,
detailed and clear . . .
how to obtain eternal
joy, bliss and cheer.

God, my Trust,
my Reliance, my Confidence,
in You I have found
a faithful dependence.

For nothing is impossible,
with You all is achievable
through Your mighty power
all things are conceivable.

God, my Trust,
my Salvation, my Sureness
Your mercy for me . . .
is out of Your Goodness!

~~~~~~~~~~

Psalm 13:5

But I have trusted
in thy mercy;
my heart shall rejoice
in thy salvation.

Good Morning Quote ~07.09.20~


Only Jesus ~

There’s no other name like Jesus,
no other One we can call on
no other person that can help us
to be to His Father drawn.

There’s no other name in heaven,
no other name given unto man
no other person who has for us
the way to salvation’s plan.

There’s no other name like Jesus,
no other One with such power
no other One we can rely on
no matter the given hour.

There’s no other name we know,
no other One that loves us
no other name that spells out
in whom we can always trust.

There is no other name that shines,
no other One has the light
no other name helping us
in the battles we fight.

There is no other name like Jesus,
no other name that we can call
no other person can save us
It’s only Jesus ~ or no one at all!

~~~~~~~~~

Acts 4:12

“Neither is there salvation in any other:
for there is none other name under heaven
given among men, whereby we must be saved.”

It’s About the Grace ~

It’s all about the grace,
not about the works . . .
it’s all about freedom
with eternal perks.

For grace is liberating,
it’s soul freeing too
and it’s not something
you get, by what you do.

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

For grace is forgiving,
there is no cost to you
Jesus paid the price in full
leaving us nothing left to do.

It’s all about grace,
the confession of sin
it’s all about repentance
that comes from deep within.

For grace will set you free,
from the inside out . . .
it’ll cast out every fear
take away all the doubt.

It’s all about the grace,
liberating and freeing
it will turn you away from
the sinful life you’re living!

Ephesians 2:8

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

A Willing Living Sacrifice ~

wearelight used with permission IBible Verses
Father, I give unto You,
this body You gave to me
my heart, my mind, my soul
so, I can learn to be . . .

A holy, living sacrifice,
to heed to Your good will
an open, willing vessel
to offer You my skill.

A light unto the world,
to shine in the darkness
a tiny grain of salt
to rid it of its harshness.

A voice in the wilderness,
to those who are lost
a witness to salvation
bringing glory to the cross.

A tiny mustard seed,
to spread the Gospel Word
a branch on the True Vine
to feed Your hungry herd.

Father, grant me Your mercies,
I need each and every one
if I am to be of Your service
and lead others to Your Son!

~~~~~~~~~~~~

Romans 12:1

“I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God,
that ye present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy,

No Other Name ~

Names of Jesus by Andrew Haight free photo #3974

There’s no other name like Jesus,
no other one we can call on
no other person that can help us
to be eternally drawn.

There’s no other name under heaven,
no other name given unto man
no other person who has for us
the way to salvation’s plan.

There’s no other name like Jesus,
no other one with such power
no other person who we can rely on
no matter the given hour.

There’s no other name I know,
no other one who loves us
no other name that spells out
who we can always trust.

There is no other name that shines,
no other who has the light
no other name who will help us
battle the enemy that we fight.

There is no other name like Jesus,
no other name that we can call
no other person who can save us
It’s Jesus ~ or no one at all!

Mommy’s Sweet Little Sheep

Mother's Day by Brandon Johnson free -photo # 5824

Demands knocking on the door,
in the early morning hours . . .
needing drinks, something to eat
zapping mommy’s sleep and power.

Toasting, pouring, filling cups,
hungry baby begins to scream
washer started, dryer going, folding never!
Welcome to mommy’s daily chaotic theme.

Feeling tired, needing coffee,
breakfast strewed across the kitchen floor
little boys jumping, running, shrieking . . .
naked out the front room door!

Washing, scrubbing, water running,
dishes piling high ~ higher in the sink
dirty diapers, dirty hampers, dirty hands
mommy’s sanity always tested to the brink.

Shopping, stopping, going crazy,
with three little rascals in mommy’s tow
fighting, crying, yelling ~ Silence Now!
Mommy’s temper starts to boil and blow.

Stashing, storing, putting away,
lunchtime madness nearly here . . .
paying bills, wiping spills
nap time cries ~ mommy prays to hear.

Dinner planning, making, baking,
playtime promises, park time bliss
running, jumping, falling down
two little knees that need mommy’s kiss.

Daddy working, coming home soon,
six little feet ~ eagerly wait to greet
act as if they’ve not been a problem
for daddy they are ~ angle sweet.

Daddy’s home, gives out love and hugs,
asks mommy dear ~ how was her day
wild, crazy, frantic, hectic . . . . name it!
Daddy knows he best, stay out of her way.

Three little roaring, howling tigers,
now sleeping like sweet little sheep
mommy thanks God for her blessings . . .
and for the peace and quiet while they sleep!
