I’ll Never Forsake You ~

I’ll never leave or forsake you,
for you I will always care
I understand your feelings
how much you have to bear.

I’ll never leave or desert you,
even when you think I’m far away
I know each step you have taken
I have been with you all the way.

I’ll never leave or depart from you,
I am always right here near by
I know what you’ve been through
in my bottle are the tears you cry.

I’ll never leave or quit on you,
even though you feel I’m not there
I’m always watching out for you
you have always been in My care.

I’ll never leave or forsake you,
your every thought I know and see
I’m always here to listen to you . . .
now can you say the same ~ for Me?

The Giver Of All Things Good~

Everyday is a gift from God,
a present for us to unfold
the blessings of His splendor
in the green pastures of His fold.

It is there where we will find,
a Shepherd to lead us
into valleys peaceful
filled with strength, faith and trust.

Everyday is a gift from God,
a treasure for us to explore
the bounty of His goodness
to soak in and to absorb.

It is there where we will find,
all that is good and perfect
coming from the Father of lights
for us daily on which to reflect.

Everyday is a gift to us,
from the Giver of all things
a treasure trove of blessings
that each new morning brings!

James 1.17

“Every good gift and every
perfect gift is from above,
and cometh down from the
Father of lights,
with whom is no variableness,
neither shadow of turning.”

All My Soul Needs ~

The Lord is my Shepherd,
I want nothing more
then the joy and glory
for me He has in store.

He satisfies my thirst,
my hunger He fills
my anxiety and fears
He calms and stills.

The Lord is my Shepherd,
I want not a thing
for my heart is set
on the peace He’ll bring.

He is my saving Light,
He is my High Rock
I’m so blessed to be
a part of His flock.

The Lord is my Shepherd,
there’s nothing I lack
my faith in Him is all . . .
He want’s me to give back!

I shall not want.”

Do Not Go Astray ~

Do Not Go Astray ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann Wikipedia

Do not lose heart,
do not go astray
from the Good Shepherd
be not lead away.

Do not give up,
do not give in
do not let temptation
ever, ever win.

Do not wander,
do not roam around
do not lose the faith
that you have found.

Do not turn,
do not separate
do not get distracted
from the narrow gate.

Do not leave,
do not go your own way
do not let sin tempt you
from God to ever sway!

~~~~~~~~~~

Isaiah 53:6

“All we like sheep
have gone astray;

we have turned
every one to his own way;

and the Lord hath laid on him
the iniquity of us all.”

Counting Sheep ~

lamb-of-god free photo

Sometimes at night,
I am unable to sleep
I try but I cannot  . . .
conjure up any sheep.

My mind is too busy,
counting on other things
like the joy and gladness
Jesus’ return will bring.

I number all the ways,
He shows His love for me
then I tally them up
till heaven is all I see.

I combine together,
His mercy and His grace
let my mind travel off
to when I’ll see His face.

Sometimes at night,
when I cannot sleep . . .
I praise the Lord I’m counted
as one of His little sheep!

“So we thy people and sheep of thy pasture
will give thee thanks for ever:
we will shew forth thy praise
to all generations.”

Never Forsaken ~

My Sheep used with perrmison Doorpost Verses on Facebook

I’ll never leave or forsake you,
even when you think I don’t care
I understand all your feelings
how much you have to bear.

I’ll never leave or desert you,
even when you think I’m far away
I know each step you’ve taken
I have been with you all the way.

I’ll never leave or forget you,
even though you feel I’m not there
I’m always watching out for you
you have always been in My care.

I’ll never leave or forsake you,
your every thought I know and see
I’m always here to listen  to you . . .
can you say the same ~ for Me?

The Good Shepherd ~

The Lord is My Shepherd used with permission Doorpost Verses on Facebook

The Lord is my Shepherd,
I’ve everything that is good
for He tenderly cares for me
as a Good Shepherd should.

He keeps me from danger,
protects my every step
He won’t let my foot slip
He saves each misstep.

He’s skilful and faithful,
to care for His flock
He keeps me from wandering
watches me like a hawk.

When I call out His name,
He comes running to me
for He recognizes my voice
from temptation I’m free.

He tends to my desires,
knows what I will need
I’ll  not go hungry
for on His goodness I feed.

I shall find satisfaction,
all the days of my life
for  He took upon Himself
the lot of my strife!

shall follow me all the days of my life:
and I will dwell in the house of the Lord for ever.”

In The Valley ~

Tea Plantation by Matt Gruber free photo on Creation Swap

In the valley dark and deep,
amid the shadows of despair
the beast of the world hides
looking for those he can snare.

On rebellions valley floor,
where misery loves to sleep
in the fields of hopelessness
lies the defiant little sheep.

Pastures once green and lush,
now covered with sin’s sludge
the wayward one is frightened
to meet its eternal Judge.

The rush of life-giving waters,
arouses the backslidden one
a soul entrenched in darkness
sobs for the light of the Son.

In the valley dark and deep,
the errant one turns to God
the beast of the world flees
to find another soul to trod.

Out of the shadows it emerges,
into pastures once more green
the wayward sheep now rests
on His mercy, it now leans.

In the valley deep and dark,
lies more defiant little sheep
and for each one of them
the Good Shepherd weeps.

If you are a rebellious one,
if you too have lost your way
come to where His mercy flows
and return to Him today!

~~~~~~~~~

“All we like sheep
have gone astray;

we have turned every one
to his own way;

and the Lord hath laid
on him the iniquity of us all.”

It’s All in His Name ~

Jesus by Jon Romero free photo #6063

It’s all . . .

A valley too deep . . .
~ The Good Shepherd waits

A hungry soul wants . . .
~ The Bread of Life gives

A rocky road fails . . .
~ The Sure Foundation stands

A time of darkness grows . . .
~ The True Light shines

A door is closed . . .
~ The Door is opened

A life tossed by storms . . .
~ The Captain of Salvation calms

A widow’s cry . . .
~ The Bridegroom comes

A dying soul is lost . . .
~ The Eternal Life saves

A contentious heart clamors . . .
~ The Mediator brings peace

A gloomy night dims . . .
~ the Bright and Morning Star sparks

A crumbling relationship fails . . .
~ The Chief Cornerstone builds up

A doubting heart wants . . .
~ The Faithful and True comes through

A sinner confesses . . .
~ The Word of Life forgives

. . . in His name

 
~ His name is Jesus ~
