The Gospel Of Peace ~

Before you go out,
before you begin your day
to spread the Gospel
to the people along the way.

Make sure you’re equipped,
for the battle ahead
for satan will do anything
so the Word you can’t spread.

Before you go out,
before the day you greet
make sure your prepared
to stand firmly on your feet.

For satan will attack you,
any way that he can . . .
for to the Gospel of peace
he is not a huge fan.

Before you go out,
to spread the Good News
satan’s land mines . . .
you’ll need to first defuse!

And your feet shod with

The Helmet Of Salvation ~

The helmet of salvation,
we need to wear everyday
or else the way we think
satan will begin to sway.

For, we need our minds,
protected with God’s Word
so that satan doesn’t mess
with the truth we’ve heard.

The helmet of salvation,
will safeguard all of us
from satan destroying
in God our faith and trust.

For our hope in believing,
in the things not seen
from our thoughts
satan will start to glean.

The helmet of salvation,
is a daily must wear . . .
so that we will not fall
into one of satan’s snares!

The Breastplate of Righteousness ~

When righteousness,
is your breastplate
your faith in God
satan can’t deflate.

For, it will become,
your soul’s protection
so that you won’t fall
for satan’s deception.

When after righteousness,
you constantly pursue
satan your faith . . .
will not breakthrough.

For, you will be entrenched,
in the Life, Truth and Way
and you’ll not be fooled
by what satan may say.

When the breastplate,
of righteousness you put on
into satan’s darkness . . .
you will not ever be drawn!

Girded With Truth ~

If the battle with satan,
you truly want to win
you will need the truth
abiding deep within.

For the truth will make,
satan up and flee
for in you Jesus . . .
he is able to see.

If the fight with darkness,
you are going to beat . . .
with the truth be girded
from your head to your feet.

That way when satan,
starts his vicious attack
you’ll be able with the truth
to fight him right back.

If the battle with satan,
is to be fought and won
we need to be braced . . .
with the truth of God’s Son!

The Shield Of Faith ~

Each day there’s a conflict,
that we need to fight . . .
a battle that’s between
the dark and the light.

But, before we go out,
onto the battle field
we must make sure
we are wearing our shield.

For, the shield of faith,
our hearts will protect
as satan’s fiery arrows
He begins at us to eject.

We will need to stand firm,
lest one may hit its mark
and turn our light for Jesus
into barely but a spark.

Each day there’s a conflict,
a clash between right and wrong
a battle that can only be won
when in Christ we stand strong!

~~~~~~~~

Above all, taking the shield of faith,
wherewith ye shall be able to quench

For, it speaks the truth,
to a world fallen

who on Jesus call on.

The Word of God,
we need to share
to those who have
so many worldly cares.

For it will calm and ease,
their everyday worries
just knowing that Jesus . . .
their burdens willingly carries.

The Sword of the Spirit,
is full of truth and light
and we must use its power
to win the faithful fight!

A Simple, Easy Joy ~

A simple, easy joy,
a feeling full of bliss
an elation that I feel
a wonder not to miss.

A simple, calming feeling,
a happiness inside me
a serenity deep within
a heart full of glee.

A simple, warming feeling,
a joyousness all around
a delight in every way
a tranquility to be found.

A simple, lulling peace,
a relaxing quiet quelling
a silence filled with hope
a pleasureful feeling.

A simple, easy joy,
a feeling like no other kind
a gladness when God’s love
fills my heart and mind!

Christ’s Strength In Me ~

When I’m tuckered out,
when strength I need
to my Bible I go . . .
and these verses I read.

Through my faith in Christ,
I can do anything
for His strength to me
He promises to bring.

Whenever I am fearful,
I need not be afraid
for the Lord will keep me
from becoming dismayed.

When I am feeling faint,
as if I cannot go on
God offers me His strength
when mine is all but gone.

I can come to Jesus,
whenever I’m stressed
and with peaceful rest
I know I’ll be blessed.

Whenever I’m tuckered out,
the Lord strengthens my heart
allowing my hope in Him . . .
to come and do its part!

~~~~~~~~

Philippians 4:13

I can do all things through Christ
which strengtheneth me.

Deuteronomy 31:6

Be strong and of a good courage, fear not,
nor be afraid of them: for the LORD thy God,
he it is that doth go with thee;
he will not fail thee, nor forsake thee.

But they that wait upon the LORD
shall renew their strength;
they shall mount up with wings as eagles;
they shall run, and not be weary;

Come unto me,
all ye that labour
and are heavy laden,
and I will give you rest.

God Of Promises ~

God of promises,
giver of all things good
help us to believe
in You as we should.

With all of our hearts,
our souls and our minds
all of Your promises
are ours to seek and find.

God of promises,
You said You’d never leave
those who unto You

Nor height, nor depth,
nor any other creature,
shall be able to separate us
from the love of God,
which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.

All Your Heart and Mind ~

Sometimes it is hard,
for us to stand still
while we are waiting . . .
to know God’s will.

The mind does not get,
the reason for the delay
causing our hearts to fall
into a state of dismay.

Sometimes it is difficult,
for us God to hear
sometimes it seems
He’s far away not near.

The silence is deafening,
it’s seems like an abyss
it feels as if our prayers
are being dismissed.

Sometimes it is challenging,
when God we can’t find . . .
tis why we must seek Him
with all our heart and mind!

~~~~~~~~

Psalm 83:1

Keep not thou silence,
O God: hold not thy peace,
and be not still, O God.

Jeremiah 29:13

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

Knowing God’s Will ~

Knowing God’s will,
takes a lot of patience
before He reveals
all He has awaiting us.

It takes a heart yielding,
to know just what to do
it takes a life willing
to wait till He shows how to.

Knowing God’s will,
takes a lot of believing
that His plans for you
one day you’ll be receiving.

It takes one step at a time,
made with faith and trust
for us to be able to see
the purposes He has for us.

Knowing God’s will
doesn’t come to us overnight
it takes time for God . . .
to reveal His divine insight!

Springtime Is In The Air ~

Springtime is in the air,
I can feel its warming trend
brighter days and longer nights
I know are just around the bend.

I eagerly await the change,
that comes along with Spring
knowing in my weary soul
God too will begin a new thing.

Springtime is in the air,
I can see its early bloom
melting away the aches
of winter’s chilly gloom.

For Springtime brings with it,
God’s promises of revival
restoration and re-birth . . .
upon its sunshiny arrival.

Springtime is in the air,
I hope you can feel it too
for it’s the time of year . . .
God uses to heal and renew!

God Is Good All Of The Time ~

God is good all the time,
His goodness is seamless
it is unmatched . . .

God is holiness,

Blameless ~

God’s mercy I don’t deserve,
it’s not something I earned
nor something I can obtain
by anything I’ve learned.

God’s mercy is His favor,
His compassion and goodness
towards a sinner like me . . .
to show to me His kindness.

Jesus’ grace I don’t deserve,
it’s not something I merit
nor something I’m worthy of
or anything I can inherit.

Jesus’ grace is His love,
it’s His benevolence
towards a sinner like me . . .
to show me His excellence.

God’s mercy offers to me,
the blessing of forgiveness
Jesus’ grace makes me
before Him blameless!

~~~~~~~~

Ephesians 2:8

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

Titus 3:5

Not by works of righteousness
which we have done, but according
to his mercy he saved us,
by the washing of regeneration,
and renewing of the Holy Ghost;

2 Corinthians 5:21

For he hath made him to be
sin for us, who knew no sin;
that we might be made the
righteousness of God in him

Hope Unseen ~

If you want to have hope,
faith you will need . . .
to trust in the facts
when your Bible you read.

You’ll need to take the position,
and to have the conviction
that Jesus is the only way
to eternal salvation.

If your are to have faith,
hope you will require
for one without the other
will only expire.

For faith without hope,
has nowhere to go . . .
and the love of God
you will never know.

Hope that is unseen,
is hard to believe . . .
unless into your heart
~ Jesus ~
you openly receive!

~~~~~~~~

Hebrews 11:1

Now faith is the substance
of things hoped for,
the evidence of things not seen.

1 Corinthians 13:13

And now abideth faith, hope, charity,
these three; but the greatest of these
is charity.

One Day Up In Heaven ~

One day up in heaven
in the presence of the Lord
our praises onto Him . . .
will be bountifully poured.

We will sing our alleluia’s,
our hallelujahs too
we will all be in sync
as if we were right on cue.

One day there will be,
a glorious wedding feast
a victorious celebration
over the death of the beast.

The outpouring of praise,
will be thunderous . . .
nothing we have ever heard
will be as wondrous.

One day in heaven,
we will sing our alleluia’s
and throughout eternity
they’ll echo our hallelujahs!

~~~~~~~~

Revelation 19:5-7

And a voice came out of the throne,
saying, Praise our God, all ye his servants,

and as the voice of mighty thunderings,
saying, Alleluia:
for the Lord God omnipotent reigneth.

Let us be glad and rejoice, and give honour
to him: for the marriage of the Lamb is come,
and his wife hath made herself ready.

I’m going easy,
not getting faint or queasy

and letting God do the rest.

till these problems are gone
I’m pressing towards the goal
with all my heart and soul!

Soon the Lord will be coming,

If all things with God,
are truly possible . . .
then nothing to Him

for He parted a sea

He can turn water,
into brand new wine . . .
there’s nothing He can’t do
for His power is divine.

He can with one fish,
feed a whole crowd
He can still raging waves . . .
calm down a stormy cloud.

If all with God is possible,
if there’s nothing He can’t do
just think what He will . . .
do with me and you!

God Forgives And Forgets ~

Not only does God forgive,
He too completely forgets
every one of your sins
along with all of your regrets.

He blots out your mistakes,
and every transgression
once to Him you give Him
your heartfelt confession.

He remembers no more,
your past evil misdoings
He removes the wickedness
of your wrongdoings.

He throws behind His back,
your misdeeds and distrust
and all of your actions
He would consider unjust.

God forgives and forgets,
and you really must too . . .
by focusing on what’s ahead
not what is behind you!

I, even I, am he that blotteth

Faith Deflated ~

When we’re on a mountain,
our egos musn’t get inflated
otherwise when in the valley . . .
our hopes will get deflated.

For through life’s highs,
it’s easy to be on the top
but, when a low hits us . . .
into depression we will flop.

When things are going well,
we can be so joyful . . .
but, when troubles come
our hearts become fearful.

For through happy times,
it’s easy to be up
but, when doubt hits us . . .
we go down in the dump.

Mountain tops are great,
there’s such a glorious view
but, don’t let the valleys . . .
dismay or frighten you!

When we are with Jesus,

They’ll be endless glee,

to bring me around.

He wants to give

The Peace Of God Transcends ~

The peace of God transcends,
anything we can perceive
and so sometimes . . .
it’s hard for us to receive.

But, if we were to let,
our hearts become still
and focus in on Jesus
our minds peace would fill.

The peace Jesus left us,
in this world can’t be found
no matter where you look
you won’t find it around.

But, if we keep our hearts,
troubled and worry free
what keeps us from His peace
would from our minds flee.

The peace of God exceeds,
what we will ever know . . .
unless in prayer to Jesus
we every day will go!

~~~~~~~~

Philippians 4:7

And the peace of God,
which passeth all understanding,
shall keep your hearts and minds

not as the world giveth,

For I’ll be eternally,
with my Lord and Savor
all because of His Father’s
mercy, grace and favor.

When my life comes,
to its earthly end
be at peace knowing
I’m with my eternal Friend.

For Jesus will greet me,
with arms open wide
and for all of eternity
with Him I will abide.

When my life is finally,
over with and gone . . .
remember me for being
~ in the Lord ~
steadfast and strong!

Ephesians 6:10

Finally, my brethren,
be strong in the Lord,
and in the power of
his might.

Hebrews 3:14

For we are made partakers
of Christ, if we hold the
beginning of our confidence
stedfast unto the end;

Death To The Old Man ~

Die old man die,
get thee out of my way
I want nothing of yours
so just die and go away.

Die old man die,
I have no use for you
die to self and to flesh
for in Christ I am new.

Die old man die,
I’ll not follow your lead
die to worldly ambition
for Jesus is all that I need.

Die old man die,
you don’t rule this heart
die to all that is keeping
Jesus and I apart.

Die old man die,
I will not let you win
die to all the trappings
you disguise as not sin.

Die old man just die,
get thee out of my way
for I will die to you . . .
so death to you I say!

~~~~~~~

Romans 6:6

Knowing this, that our old man
is crucified with him, that the
body of sin might be destroyed,
that henceforth we should not
serve sin.

2 Corinthians 5:17

“Therefore, if anyone is in Christ,
he is a new creation; old things
have passed away; behold,
all things have become new.“
