There Is No Profit ~

There is no profit,
to be made . . .
all earthly wealth
will rust and fade.

There is no gain,
to be gotten . . .
all worldly things
will just get rotten.

There is no future,
to be obtained . . .
all earthy wealth
can’t be retained.

There is no hope,
to be secured . . .
all worldly things
will be obscured.

There is no profit,
in worldly things
no earthly wealth . . .
can salvation bring!

~~~~~~~~~~

Matthew 6:19-21

Lay not up for yourselves treasures
upon earth, where moth and rust doth
corrupt, and where thieves break
through and steal:

But lay up for yourselves treasures
in heaven, where neither moth nor
rust doth corrupt, and where thieves
do not break through nor steal:

For where your treasure is,
there will your heart be also.

Laying My Treasures ~

My heart doesn’t lay,
it’s treasures on earth
for it knows one day
they’ll hold no worth.

Instead my heart places,
in God its daily trust
for I know His love for me
will never corrode or rust.

My heart doesn’t invest,
into worldly assets
for they are void of peace
riddled down with regrets.

Instead my heart’s devoted,
to the Life, Truth and Way
for I know my faith in Jesus
will not corrupt or decay.

My heart up in heaven,
lays all it holds dear . . .
for to put it here on earth
makes me shutter with fear!

~~~~~~~~~~

Matthew 6:19-21

Lay not up for yourselves treasures
upon earth, where moth and rust
doth corrupt, and where thieves break
through and steal:

But lay up for
yourselves treasures in heaven,
where neither moth nor rust
doth corrupt, and where thieves
do not break through nor steal:

For where your treasure is,
there will your heart be also.

Richer Than Most ~

Where is Your Treasure  IBible Verses
Some people need fancy homes,
the most extravagant new car
some people need jet airplanes
so they can travel near and far.

Some people need fast race boats,
vacation homes on the lake
some people need high paying jobs
so more money they can make.

Some people need elaborate cloths,
jewelry and diamond rings
some people need a stock account
and the interest that it brings.

I have none of these things,
in which to flaunt or to boast
but I do have Jesus . . .
making me richer than most!

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

1 Timothy 6:17
King James Version

“Charge them that are rich in this world,
that they be not highminded,
nor trust in uncertain riches,
but in the living God,
who giveth us richly all things to enjoy;”

With Fear and Trembling ~

cannot-compare-to-the-glory CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

Be merciful towards me Lord,
I’m working out my salvation
with fear and trembling . . .
I’m going to win every temptation.

Be gracious towards me Lord,
I’m working to remain in Your love
with fear and trembling . . .
I’m storing my treasures up above.

Be patient towards me Lord,
I’m working to find true peace
with fear and trembling . . .
I’m looking for grace to increase.

Be gentle towards me Lord,
I’m working out Your written Word
with fear and trembling . . .
I’m practicing the truth I’ve heard.

Be compassionate towards me Lord,
I’m working hard to comprehend
with fear and trembling . . .
the fullness of You, my eternal Friend.

Be long-suffering toward me Lord,
I’m laboring to enter into Your rest
with fear and trembling . . .
I’m giving to You, my very best.

Be merciful towards me Lord,
I am working out my salvation
with fear and trembling . . .
till the day of Your glorious perfection!

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

Philippians 2:12
King James Version

“Wherefore, my beloved, as ye have always obeyed,
not as in my presence only, but now much more in my absence,
work out your own salvation with fear and trembling.”

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,”

Hearses Don’t Pull Trailers ~

Hearses Don't Pull Trailers ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

Hearses don’t pull trailers,
loaded with earthly treasures
they don’t tow your worth
or your worldly measures.

They don’t carry the living,
with their prized possessions
they only bring along coffins
to the grave side processions.

You can’t take it with you,
all you’ve acquire will turn to rust
what you adore and cherish
will be left behind in the dust.

You can’t haul away your stuff,
there’s no place in heaven for it
one day all you own and love
to the world you’ll have to forfeit.

There is no trailer hitch,
attached to that black hearse
but, you can lay up your treasures
if you read and apply God’s verse.

So, don’t cling onto the things,
that you have saved up and stored
let go of them and turn to God . . .
and your soul He will reward!

~~~~~~~~~~

Matthew 6:20-21
King James Version

“But lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven,
where neither moth nor rust doth corrupt,
and where thieves do not break through nor steal:
For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also.”

Rusty And Corrupt ~

Do Not Store used with permission Doorpost Verses on Facebook

I am saving for the future,
got my treasures stored
I am investing in the day
when I will meet my Lord.

Though I may not be rich,
I give to God what I can
and I am always willing
to lend a helping hand.

I don’t own a lot of things,
go ahead and call me nuts . . .
but denying worldly pleasures
takes an awful lot of guts.

I’m keeping my life simple,
so little days to spend here
I’m just biding my time
till His trumpet call I hear.

Rusty and corrupt,
material things just decay
but when God you trust . . .
you’ll see resurrection day!

~~~~~

Matthew 6:19-20

“Lay not up
for yourselves treasures
upon earth,

where moth and
rust doth corrupt,

and where thieves
break through and steal:

But lay up for yourselves
treasures in heaven,

where neither moth
nor rust doth corrupt,

and where thieves do
not break through nor steal:”

Worldly Things

I Love Jesus free photo by David Elgena # 5344

There is only one God,
in whom I put my trust
all of the other ones
have turned into rust.

I once relied on people,
to bring to me pleasure
but they couldn’t convey
love that I could treasure.

Everything is conditional,
nothing is without a cost
and now I can understand
why so many are truly lost.

I thought if I set my sights,
on the things of this world
that everlasting happiness
I would be able to unfurl.

But, they too soon corroded,
and all turned into dust
that is why it’s only God
in whom I now put my trust.

For His love is eternal,
and brings heavenly rewards
now being with Him one day
is all that I look towards.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Colossians 3:1
King James Version

“If ye then be risen with Christ, seek those
things which are above, where Christ sitteth
on the right hand of God”
