A Spiritual Spiral ~

When your life turns into,
a spiritual spiral downward
when all you see is chaos
as you look at yourself inward.

That’s when you need to stop,
whatever you are doing
and after God’s will for you
begin to start pursuing.

When your faith flounders,
don’t let your life fall back
instead turn to Jesus
for the trust that you lack.

For Jesus will be there,
to give His strength to you
and bless you with the power
for everything you must do.

When life begins to spin,
out of your control
God will preserve . . .
the saving of your soul!


Hebrews 10:39

But we are not of them
who draw back unto perdition;
but of them that believe
to the saving of the soul.

Striving For Perfection ~

I strive for perfection,
and many times I fail . . .
but, whenever I do
I get back on the trail.

For what I know is good,
is worth my going for
and when I need strength
I ask Jesus to give me more.

I strain to find God’s will,
but, it I don’t always see
but, I am not deterred
to find His plan for me.

For what is acceptable,
is worth my pursuing
and when I need a push
I ask Jesus for renewing.

I strive for perfection,
I know I can achieve it
for, I know its attainable
through the Holy Spirit!


Romans 12:2

And be not conformed to this world:
but be ye transformed by the
renewing of your mind, that ye may
prove what is that good, and acceptable,
and perfect, will of God.

Matthew 5:48

Be ye therefore perfect,
even as your Father which
is in heaven is perfect.

Line Upon Line ~

Line upon line,
read your Bible every day
Word upon Word
and from the truth you’ll not stray.

Precept upon precept,
consider each and every one
concept upon concept
and to God’s ways you’ll be won.

Word upon Word,
observe all of God’s laws
line upon line
and they’ll reveal your flaws.

Concept upon concept,
search for God every day
precept upon precept
and He will show you the way.

Line upon line,
let God’s instructions fill your mind
concept upon concept
and His wisdom you will find.

Everyday read the Word,
a little here, a little there
and to all of Jesus’ teachings
you will be made aware!


Isaiah 28:10

For precept must be upon precept,
precept upon precept; line upon line,
line upon line; here a little, and there a little:

Rising Above ~

I’m mounting up,
rising above
all my frailties
in God’s love.

On Him I’ll wait,
till I am strong
trusting in Him
all the day long.

I will be quiet,
and remain still
till He shows me
what is His will.

My cares I’ll give,
to Him to resolve
so all of my fears
my faith can dissolve.

I’m mounting up,
in confidence . . .
for I have hope
in His providence!


Psalm 27:14

Wait on the Lord:
be of good courage,
and he shall strengthen
thine heart: wait,
I say, on the Lord.

My Brother’s Keeper ~

I am my brother’s keeper,
I help him to understand
I encourage him to put
his life into God’s hand.

I am my sister’s keeper,
I help her to see the light
I encourage her to grow
to keep Jesus in her sight.

I am my mother’s keeper,
in her old age I help her out
I hold her hand when lonely
to calm her fears and doubt.

I am my father’s keeper,
I lift to God, his very soul
I pray each day and night
Jesus will make him whole.

I am my children’s keeper,
I listen to their concerns
I pray for God to give them
the wisdom to discern.

I am my neighbor’s keeper,
I pray for their daily needs
I tell them to always heed
to follow where God leads.

The Lord is my keeper,
He is with me every day
He watches over me . . .
as I travel the narrow way!


Genesis 4:9

“And the Lord said unto Cain,
Where is Abel thy brother?
And he said, I know not:
Am I my brother’s keeper?”

1 John 2:10

He that loveth his brother
abideth in the light, and
there is none occasion
of stumbling in him.

Speak to me Lord Jesus,
make Yourself known

while I am staying still
let me know what is
for me Your perfect will.

Show me the road,
You’d have me to take
I promise I’ll follow it
for Your name’s sake.

The Lord Leads Me ~

The Lord leads me,
through the valleys and dells
He takes me to places
where righteousness dwells.

It is there where I find,
His guiding hand
showing me just where
my steps should land.

The Lord takes me,
up the mountains and hills
He takes me to places
for me to discover His will.

It’s there where I observe,
the path planned for me
as He directs my feet . . .
to where they need to be.

The Lord takes me,
to places high and low
to make it clear to me
the way I should go!


Psalm 107: 7

And he led them forth
by the right way,
that they might go to
a city of habitation.

He restoreth my soul:

for his name’s sake.

If You Were To Search ~

If you were to search,

faith will impart.

For those who search,

If you were to seek,
with all your mind
God’s will for you
you’ll be able to find.

For those who seek,

Ditching Your Own Plans ~

As you get to know,
who God really is . . .
you’ll ditch your plans
and go after His.

For He has a purpose,
for you and your life
one filled with peace
not of earthly strife.

The more you understand,
just what is God’s will
the more of it to you
He will daily reveal.

For His plans will unfold,
the more of Him you seek
and you’ll see His purpose
the more you are meek.

God has a plan for you,
this you must not doubt
for in you He is working . . .
all good things out!


Jeremiah 29:11

For I know the thoughts
that I think toward you,
saith the Lord, thoughts
of peace, and not of evil,
to give you an expected end.

Romans 8:28

And we know that all things
work together for good to
them that love God, to them
who are the called according
to his purpose.

A Purposeful Plan ~

A purposeful plan,
in Christ centered
once into the world
Jesus entered.

A pattern for us,
on how we’re to live
one that teaches us how
to love and forgive.

A life reflecting,
His grace and goodwill
one desiring knowing
and doing God’s will.

A spiritual walk,
in every one of His ways
willing to be Spirit led
for the rest of our days.

A life filled with purpose,
like Jesus we’re to be
so that His Spirit in us
others would too see!

If It Be God’s Will ~

Whatever we need,
God will provide
whatever we want
we’ll not be denied.

For our spiritual needs,
God will fulfill
when ever we ask . . .
Lord, if it be your will.

Whenever we thirst,
God will satisfy
whenever we hunger
He will gratify.

For our spiritual desires,
God will grant us
whenever we tell Him
it’s in you that I trust.

Whatever we need,
whenever we desire
God will fulfill out needs
when on Him we inquire!


1 John 5:14-15

And this is the confidence
that we have in him, that,
if we ask any thing according
to his will, he heareth us:

And if we know that he hear us,
whatsoever we ask, we know
that we have the petitions that
we desired of him.

Spiritual Renewal ~

Spiritual renewal,
abounding in trust
a time in God . . .
for a deeper trust.

Knowing His will,
being thankful
telling Him why
we are grateful.

Abounding in faith,
full of resilience
lights ever shinning
of His brilliance.

Expressing His love,
in Christ being a part
a revival of both . . .
the mind and the heart.

Spiritual renewal,
abounding in grace
filled with His spirit
energized for the race!


Ephesians 4:23

And be renewed
in the spirit of your mind

2 Corinthians 8:7

Therefore, as ye abound
in every thing, in faith,
and utterance, and
knowledge, and in all
diligence, and in your
love to us, see that ye
abound in this grace also.

A Soul Conquering~

It takes courage,
a spirit willing to go the length
it takes confidence
letting God supply the strength.

It takes commitment,
a determination to do God’s will
it takes patience
a willingness to wait and be still.

It takes persistence,
a resolve to keep pressing on
it takes diligence
for the faithful race to be won.

It takes perseverance,
a heart willing to go the distance
it takes a dedicated mind
able to handle the resistance.

It takes focus,
eyes always kept on the goal
it takes Jesus . . .
to have a conquering soul!


Philippians 3:14

I press toward
the mark
for the prize of the high
calling of God
in Christ Jesus.

Hebrews 12:1-2

Wherefore seeing we also are
compassed about with so great
a cloud of witnesses, let us lay
aside every weight, and the sin
which doth so easily beset us,
and let us run with patience
the race that is set before us,

Looking unto Jesus the author
and finisher of our faith;
who for the joy that was set before
him endured the cross, despising
the shame, and is set down at the
right hand of the throne of God.

I Am Just A Vapor ~

I am just a vapor,
a puff of steam in the air
so, I give to the Lord
all on earth I have to bear.

I may be here today,
but tomorrow I might not be
so, I lay up my treasures
in a place I cannot see.

I know not His will,
for the days of my life
so, I give to the Lord
all of my daily strife.

God could have me live,
to a hundred or more
but, then again tomorrow
I could be at heaven’s door.

I am just a vapor,
my days are in His hands
so, I rest in the comfort
of His eternal plans!


James 4:14

“Whereas ye know not
what shall be on the morrow.
For what is your life?
It is even a vapour,
that appeareth for
a little time,
and then vanisheth away.”

Heavenly Guidance ~

Heavenly guidance,

for it will give strength
whenever we’re weak.

But it will take us,

we all need to pray for
for it will lead us
straight to heaven’s door.

But we need to learn,
to wait and be still
and not budge an inch
until we know God’s will.

Heavenly guidance,
we all need to find
for it brings peace
to both heart and mind!

Working Out My Salvation ~

Lord, may I continue,

I’ve not one ounce of doubt.

No doubt You won’t do,

so I may discover
Your mercy is without measure.

Lord may I remain,
in Your Word submersed
until I’m completely
schooled and well versed.

Versed in Your love and grace,

so that Your will for my life
will keep me in control.

Lord, may I with holy fear,
use care and due diligence
to work out my salvation . . .
with a trembling willingness!


Philippians 2:12-13

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.

For it is God which worketh
in you both to will and to
do of his good pleasure.

I hunger for the truth,

for God’s provisions
to uphold me on my way.

I get down on my knees,
seek to find His face
I ask Him to sustain me
in the bounty of His grace.

I thirst for His wisdom,
like a deer I pant all day
for God to encourage me
along the narrow way.

I desire to know His will,
to be in His love sated
so the joy of my salvation
will keep me forever elated.

I hunger for the truth,
after wisdom I do thirst
I pray God will fill me . . .
with faith until I burst!

Though I am tired,
I am never exhausted
for, it’s in my Shepherd
all these years I’ve trusted.

He renews my soul daily,
my heart He hourly repairs
whenever I give to Him
the bulk of my earthly cares.

Though I am fatigued,
I am never powerless
for, my Lord keeps me . . .
from being weak and helpless!


Psalm 23:1-3

The Lord is my shepherd;
I shall not want. He maketh
me to lie down in green pastures:
he leadeth me beside the still waters.
He restoreth my soul: he leadeth me
in the paths of righteousness
for his name’s sake.

When you ask Jesus,
to be Lord of your life

you must cast on Him too.

and all of His answers . . .
