What Mighty Things ~

Oh Lord, what mighty things,
today are You going to show
what new things about You
am I going to get to know?

What is it that You will bring,
into my life today
so that I may experience
true joy along my way.

Oh Lord, what new heights,
today will my faith take
what exciting adventure
together will we make?

What will You be sending,
so I can trust You more
what awesome works of grace
have You for me in store?

Oh Lord, what mighty things,
today have You for me
oh, what glorious things
will these eyes of mine see?

” Call unto me,
and I will answer thee,
and show thee great
and mighty things,
which thou knowest not.”

When With God We Walk ~

Life is a journey,
when with God we walk
and when we read the Bible
you can almost hear Him talk.

For, as we travel through,
the pages keep telling us
it is in Me . . .
that you need to trust

As we make our way,
from the old to the new
God shows everything
He desires for us to do.

For, His Word instructs us,
how we are to live and be
and if we follow it . . .
one day His glory we’ll see.

We will find God’s blessings,
as the verses we go through
mercy, grace, joy and peace
just to name a few.

Life is a journey,
when with God we walk
but, we must be willing . . .
to listen when He talks!

~~~~~~~~

Isaiah 43:19

” Behold, I will do a new thing;
now it shall spring forth;
shall ye not know it?
I will even make a way
in the wilderness,
and rivers in the desert.”

Did You Hear The Good News ~

Did you hear the Good News,
how Jesus died for you . . .
were you told about His grace
truly making all things new?

Did you hear the Good News,
how you can be forgiven
why Jesus came to redeem
your sinful condition?

Did you hear the Good News,
have you come to know
how Jesus washes your sins
turning them white as snow?

Did you hear the Good News,
God remembers your sin no more
how when Jesus arose
He opened to you, heavens door?

Did you hear the Good News,
before God you’ll stand blameless
for Jesus was the sacrifice . . .
making you His bride, spotless!

~~~~~~~~~

1 Peter 1:18-19

“Forasmuch as ye know that ye were not
redeemed with corruptible things,
as silver and gold, from your vain
conversation received by tradition
from your fathers;

But with the precious blood
of Christ, as of a lamb
without blemish and without spot:”

The Path Toward Peace ~

The path toward peace,
is one paved in pain
with plenty of loss
for our spiritual gain.

On it there is suffering,
sorrow and persecution
but, in Jesus we all have
hope and restitution.

The path toward heaven,
is full of ups and downs
plenty of highs and lows
we have to get around.

On it there are setbacks,
barricades and barriers
but, they only make us
for Jesus, stronger warriors.

The path toward joy,
is one we can truly trust
for Jesus our Savior . . .
has gone on it before us!

~~~~~~~~

1 Peter 4:13

“But rejoice, inasmuch as ye are
partakers of Christ’s sufferings;
that, when his glory shall be
revealed, ye may be glad
also with exceeding joy.”

Not One Should Perish ~

Thank you Father,
for taking Your time
so You can call
“more people mine.

Thank you Father,
for being slow
lest Your anger
we’d all know.

Thank You Father,
for not being slack
so Your lost sheep
may come back.

Thank You Father,
for being forgiving
when we repent
of ungodly living.

Thank You Father,
for Your desire . . .
not one should perish
in hell’s fire!

~~~~~

2 Peter 3:9

“ The Lord is not slack
concerning his promise,
as some men count slackness;
but is longsuffering
to us-ward,
not willing that any
should perish,
but that all should
come to repentance.

True Peace and Rest ~

If you want to find,
true peace an contentment
then in your heart to God
make a real commitment.

For, peace and happiness,
in this world can’t be had
as it only offers you . . .
passing fancy’s and fad’s.

If you want to find,
true peace and serenity
then your life from God
you can’t live separately.

For, true peace and joy,
just cannot be found
’til in your soul you know
you are heaven bound.

If you want to find,
true peace and rest
then your heart to Jesus
you must invest!

~~~~~~~

John 14:27

“Peace I leave with you,
my peace I give unto you:
not as the world giveth,
give I unto you.
Let not your heart
be troubled, neither
let it be afraid.”

The Mercy of God is Powerful ~

The Mercy of God is potent,
it can loosen every chain
holding one of His children
in the torment of their pain.

The mercy of God is powerful,
it breaks the sinful binds
it restores and it can heal
His children’s hearts and minds.

The mercy of God is delivering,
it weakens wickedness’ grasp
it gives His children strength
from satan’s hold, to unclasp.

The mercy of God is freeing,
it separates good from evil
His children it will save
from the schemes of the devil.

The mercy of God is bountiful,
it’s sufficient and plenteous
His children know intimately
just how much, He is gracious!

~~~~~~~~

Psalm 103:8

“The Lord is merciful and gracious,
slow to anger, and plenteous in mercy.”

God Has A Time For Everything ~

God has a time,
for everything
and for every one
new season’s He brings.

There’s a time of peace,
and a time of bleakness
a time of spiritual health
and a time of sickness.

There’s a time to rise up,
and a time to regress
a time of fearfulness
and a time to onward press.

There’s a time of hope,
and a time of testing
a time of great faith
and a time of wrestling.

There’s a time to praise,
and a time to mourn
a time to rejoice
and a time to be reborn.

For every thing,
God has a reason
a time for all things
in their due season!

“To every thing there is a season,
and a time to every purpose
under the heaven:”

Throwing In The Towel ~

Some days I feel like quitting,
just throwing in the towel
some days I don’t want to think
of another rhyming vowel.

Some days it’s so hard,
putting words into rhyme
some days I feel as if . . .
I’m just wasting my time.

But, then I read my Bible,
and the verses seem to jump
helping me to get over
my poetry writing slump.

For, God keeps telling me,
to continue, to carry on
how I need to keep doing
what I know He has begun.

Some days I feel like quitting,
blogging how and what I feel
but, then God encourages me
and restores my rhyming zeal!

Once Again Reborn ~

Today,  I was feeling,
quite weary and down
I needed something
to turn my thoughts around.

So, I took out my Bible,
and I began to read
God’s every promise
to supply all I need.

Today, I was thinking,
I needed a faith lift
for mine seem to be
in some kind of drift.

So, I read the Scriptures,
about Jesus in the storm
and soon my every thought
He began to transform.

Today I was feeling,
spiritually forlorn . . .
but, as I read the Good News
I felt once again reborn!

~~~~~~

1 Peter 1:23

“Being born again,
not of corruptible seed,
but of incorruptible,
by the word of God,
which liveth and abideth
for ever.”

God Comforts the Mournful ~

Some people appear,
strong on the outside
when really they’re falling
apart on the inside.

Some people pretend,
they have it all together
some contend alone
any storm they can weather.

Some people claim,
they don’t need any aid
some camouflage
just how much their afraid.

Some people look,
happy and joyful
some disguise so well
a heart, sorrowful.

Some people are indeed,
strong on the outside
for, God comforts those
who mourn on the inside!

Blessed are they that mourn:
for they shall be comforted.

I Came Into This World A Sinner ~

I came into the world,
with not one single thing
and when I go to see Jesus
there’s nothing I can bring.

For, my treasures on earth,
will rust from corruption
but, in heaven they’ve been
everlasting from conception.

I have a lot of stuff,
making my life comfortable
but, they are all to God . . .
worthless and corruptible.

For, God has for me,
eternal life as my treasure
where peace and joy
will flow without measure.

I came into this world,
as a sinner, but I will leave
as someone who in Jesus
has trusted and believed!

~~~~~~~

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.”

My Grief Reliever ~

I have felt grief  . . .
whack me on the shoulder
I have felt it in my gut
hit me like a boulder.

I have felt its shock,
just like a lighting bolt
I’ve felt its thunder deliver
my heart a stunning jolt.

I have felt grief . . .
punch me in my face
I’ve felt its raging torment
my whole body encase.

I have felt its aftershock,
shake up my entire world
I’ve felt its deadly tremor
as its pain was unfurled.

But, each time I felt the pain,
brought on only by grief . . .
I went straight to Jesus
to give my heart relief!

of a broken heart;”

Peace Everlasting ~

One day the peace of God,
will be everlasting . . .
one day our cares on Jesus
we will not need to be casting.

One day eternal joy,
will replace our sadness
one day all of our tears
will be ones of gladness.

One day God’s mercy,
will no longer be needed
one day our every fear
will finally be defeated.

One day our true hope,
will be revealed to us
one day we will see
the God in whom we trust.

One day the peace of God,
will be truly everlasting . . .
and in our hearts and minds
it’ll no longer be surpassing!

~~~~~~

Philippians 4:6-7

“Be careful for nothing;
but in every thing by prayer
and supplication
with thanksgiving
let your requests
be made known unto God.

And the peace of God,
which passeth
all understanding,
shall keep your hearts
and minds
through Christ Jesus.”

Everything New ~

Everything new,
everything perfect
sin no longer
our lives to affect.

Everything peaceful,
everything calm
now that Jesus’ blood
is salvation’s balm.

Everything joyful,
everything painless
in a twinkling we’ll stand
before God blameless.

Everything pristine,
everything ideal
at the trumpet sound
all will be surreal.

Everything perfect.
everything new
when Jesus comes
for me and you!

~~~~~~~

1 Corinthians 15.51-52

Behold! I tell you a mystery.
We shall not all sleep,
but we shall all be changed,
in a moment,
in the twinkling of an eye,
at the last trumpet.

For the trumpet will sound,
and the dead will be raised
imperishable, and we
shall be changed.”

Good Morning Joy ~

Good morning joy,
it’s so nice to see you
its such a blessing
to have you in my view.

Good morning joy,
thank you for greeting me
it’s so nice knowing
today with me you’ll be.

Good morning joy,
it’s a wonder you are here
I know God sent you
to dry my every tear.

Good morning joy,
though I’m still grieving
just the thought of you
is soothing and relieving.

Good morning joy,
it’s so comforting to know
you’ll be following me
where ever today I go!

My Happy Place ~

Jesus is . .
my happy place
where I relish
in God’s grace.

It is in Him,
I find true rest
with God’s peace
I am blest.

Jesus is . . .
my happy place
where God’s love
I eagerly embrace.

Because of Jesus,
I’ve hope endless
no longer do I feel
weak or helpless.

Jesus is . . .
my happy place
where joy fills in
the empty space!

Chilling Out ~

Today, I am chilling,
going to take it easy
not letting my fears
make me feel queasy.

Today, I am relaxing,
got me not a care
for, I took them all
to my Lord in prayer.

Today, I am resting,
letting go of it all
for, into the worry pit
I refuse to fall.

Today, I am slacking,
just Jesus and me
there’s not a doubt
together we will be.

Today I am chilling,
I’ll be easy-going . . .
for with God’s peace
I am overflowing!

With All Our Heart ~

When we love God,
with all of our heart
from Him we’ll never
what to be apart.

We will pursue Him,
night and day
we will praise Him
when we pray.

When we love God,
with all of our soul
our lives He’ll heal
and make whole.

We will seek Him,
all our living days
we’ll want to know
what are His ways.

When we love God,
with all our mind
His joy and peace
we’ll surely find.

We will trust Him,
for all we need
to His loving will
we’ll start to heed.

When we love God,
with all of our might
for our transgression
we will be contrite.

We will see our need,
for His merciful favor
and receive the grace
of Jesus, our  Savior.

When we mightily love God,
with all our heart and soul
over our minds He will . . .
take complete control!

Dispel Your Despair ~

If your faith is steadfast,
rooted and grounded
when trials come your way
in joy you’ll be surrounded.

For in the very midst,
of your worldly care
counting it all for joy
will dispel your despair.

When in Jesus,
you are truly content
you’ll experience joy
that is heaven sent.

For, whether in sickness,
or in perfect health
joy will bring to you
everlasting wealth.

Joy is not an option,
it’s something God gives
to those where His Spirit
securely abides and lives!

Never Alone ~

I once thought,
I could do it alone
but, then I invited Jesus
to come into my home.

Now He resides,
inside of these walls
He’s always around
when His name I call.

His very presence,
gives me such peace
for, on Him my worries
I am free to release.

He brings me comfort,
just knowing He’s here
He fills my heart and soul
with joy and good cheer.

I once thought,
I’d be left on my own
but since I found Jesus
I am never alone!

He Restores My Joy ~

He restores my soul,
from the daily fatigue
He repairs my nerves
my fears, He relieves.

He restores my heart,
from its heaviness
He removes the pain
the hurt, the weariness.

He restores my faith,
when weakness sets in
He resets my trust
to follow after Him.

He restores my belief,
when there is doubt
He reinstates in my life
what His truth is about.

He restores my joy,
of a future sighting
He returns my watch
for that eye twinkling!

ALMIGHTY GOD — THE BEGINNING AND THE END

“Then shall the kingdom of heaven be likened unto ten virgins, which took their lamps, and went forth to meet the bridegroom.”(Matt 25:1)Wise virgins can hear the Lord's voice, it's mainly because that wise virgins like the truth and seek the truth. They long for God's appearance. So they seek and investigate on the things about the Lord's return, and know how to distinguish the Lord's voice. Are you willing to be a wise virgin? Then hurry up to see whether the truth expressed by Almighty God is God's voice!
