Forgiveness Is Like An Eraser,

 Forgiveness is like an eraser,
God wipes our sins away
once we confess and repent
for them we don’t have to pay.

For, the slate He rubs clean,
of our every offense
tis why He sent Jesus . . .
to come to our defense.

God doesn’t keep a notebook,
filled up with all our failures
He doesn’t use a magic marker
to highlight our bad behaviors.

For, the only list He is keeping,
are names in the Book of Life
tis why He sent Jesus . . .
to bear the brunt of our strife.

Forgiveness is like an eraser,
the slate has been wiped cleaned
ever since Jesus gave His own life
so ours could be redeemed!

~~~~~~

John 3:16

For God so loved the world,
that he gave his only begotten Son,
that whosoever believeth in him
should not perish,
but have everlasting life.

Isaiah 44:22

I have blotted out, as a thick cloud,
thy transgressions, and, as a cloud,
thy sins: return unto me;
for I have redeemed thee.

Knitted Together ~

Knitted together,
with the strands
of love and grace
held in God’s hands.

Hearts joined,
with assurance
to run the race
with endurance.

Stitched collectively,
to become one
with the riches found
in Father and Son.

Clothed in righteousness,
the fabric of our life
so to encourage others
through worldly strife.

Knitted together,
by God’s hand . . .
so we may become
one single strand!

~~~~~~~

Colossians 2:2

That their hearts might be comforted,
being knit together in love,
and unto all riches of the full
assurance of understanding,
to the acknowledgement of
the mystery of God,
and of the Father,
and of Christ;

God Keeps His Promises ~

God keeps His promises,
His Word never fails
His promises He keeps
right down to the details.

Promises of new life,
that His Son brings
promises of hope
to work out all things.

Promises of comfort,
when trails we face
promises of new mercy
and sufficient grace.

Promises of blessings,
of every spiritual kind
promises of His peace
to guard heart and mind.

Promises to finish,
all that He has begun
promises of salvation
through the gift of His Son.

God keeps His promises,
they are solid as a Rock
He promises us Jesus . . .
will return for His flock!

~~~~~~~~~~

Hebrews 10:23

Let us hold fast the profession
of our faith without wavering;
for he is faithful that promised;

Fear Comes In Waves ~

Fear is like the ocean,
it comes in with a roar
knocking you off your feet
throwing you to the floor.

It swells and it rises,
with its pulsing sound
so that panic stricken
you’ll stay on the ground.

Fear is like thunder,
it scares as it rumbles
causing you to shake
in midst of your troubles.

It alarms and startles,
with each booming strike
filling you with dread
upon each clap of light.

Fear come in waves,
in and out it ebbs
but, we who trust Jesus
musn’t let in our heads!

~~~~~~

Psalm 56:3

What time I am afraid,
I will trust in thee.

Psalm 93:4

“The Lord on high is mightier
than the noise of many waters,
yea, than the mighty waves
of the sea.”

God’s Love Is Amazing ~

God’s love is amazing,
flaming and blazing
effortlessly impressive
active and aggressive.

God’s love is perfect,
ideal and flawless
impeccably complete
honed and faultless.

God’s love is awesome,
sincere and solemn
rapturously showered
propelled and powered.

God’s love is everlasting,
outreaching and broadcasting
unceasingly unremitting
engaging and committing.

God’s love is exceptional,
fair, just and equable
God’s love to everyone
is readily accessible!

~~~~~~~

1 John 3:1

Behold, what manner of love the Father
hath bestowed upon us, that we should
be called the sons of God: therefore the
world knoweth us not, because it knew him not.

Lord, Let Your Light Saturate My Soul ~

Lord, let Your Light,
saturate my soul
let over my body
it take control.

Let it bring me,
truth and wisdom
let it beam into me
just like a prism.

Lord, let Your Light,
shine down on me
let it help me
Your ways to see.

Let it bring me,
closer to You
let it sear me
all the way through.

Lord, let Your Light,
shine, beam and sear
so that to you Lord
I’ll always be near!

~~~~~~~~

2 Corinthians 4:6

For God, who commanded the light
to shine out of darkness,
hath shined in our hearts,
to give the light of the knowledge
of the glory of God in the face
of Jesus Christ.

Truly Thankful ~

When we’re truly thankful,
in and for all things . . .
we will begin to realize
the joy to God it brings.

For, whatever might be,
our personal situation
He still wants us to show
to Him our adoration.

When we are truly thankful,
wherever in life we are
we’ll begin to understand
God from us is never far.

For, when we’re grateful,
no matter our positions
we’ll begin to see God’s love
comes without conditions.

When we are truly thankful,
despite of our circumstance
it’s because we know with God
nothing comes by happenstance!

~~~~~~~~~~

Psalm 33:21

For our heart shall rejoice in him,
because we have trusted in his holy name.

Counting My Blessings ~

If I could add up,
all of my blessings
the total sum of them . . .
I’d only be guessing.

For, God sends to me,
new ones each day
yet, I don’t notice them
as they come my way.

If I’d only slow down,
I know I would see
the many blessings
He bestows on me.

For, God delivers to me,
mercy on a daily bases
and often I miss seeing . . .
the abundance of His graces.

If I could all my blessings,
harness and gather . . .
I know I would never stop
giving praise to my Father!

Philippians 4:19

But my God shall supply all your need
according to his riches in glory
by Christ Jesus.

Abiding In God’s Love ~

Abiding in God’s love,
is something you must do
now that the Holy Spirit
lives inside of you.

For, He has called you,
to walk in all His ways
and when you step out
His love you must display.

Abiding in God’s love,
is a choice you need to make
your past attitudes
you will need now to forsake.

For He has called you,
into a fruitful living
so that you will learn
the meaning of forgiving.

Abiding in God’s love,
we all need to do . . .
for Father we know
it brings glory to You!

~~~~~~~

John 15:7-10

If ye abide in me, and my words
abide in you, ye shall ask what
ye will, and it shall be done unto you.

Herein is my Father glorified,
that ye bear much fruit;
so shall ye be my disciples.

As the Father hath loved me,
so have I loved you:
continue ye in my love.

If ye keep my commandments,
ye shall abide in my love;
even as I have kept my Father’s
commandments, and abide in his love.

If There Be ~

If there be any praise,
let that be your song
if there be any hope
let that make you strong.

If there be any truth,
let that be your trust
if there be any honesty
let that make you just.

If there be any purity,
let that be your sentiment
if there be any virtue
let that make you resonant.

If there be any good,
let that be your testament
if there be any loveliness
let that make you celebrant.

If there be anything at all,
that you think about . . .
let it be the things
that work your faith out!

~~~~~~~~

Philippians 4:8

Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true,
whatsoever things are honest,
whatsoever things are just,
whatsoever things are pure,
whatsoever things are lovely,
whatsoever things are of good report;
if there be any virtue,
and if there be any praise,
think on these things.

My Compass of Love ~

Don' Let Me Loose Sight used with permission IBible Verses

Lord, Your love is my compass,
I use it everyday . . .
for I know it will lead me
to the true and righteous way.

When I need directions,
Your love guides me
so I can be nearer
and closer to Thee.

Whenever things are foggy,
I look to the Morning Star
knowing You will point me
right to where You are.

I can’t explain the expanse,
of Your love and grace
but no matter where I go
I feel it shine on my face.

Lord, Your love is full,
of truth and compassion
it has become for me . . .
my one true companion!

Psalm 86:15

“But thou, O Lord,
art a God full of compassion,

and gracious, long-suffering,
and plenteous in mercy and truth.”
