Our Worldly Home ~

Going Home by Doug Shelton free photo from CreationSwap

In this, our worldly home,
there is misery and pain
we toil and we labor . . .
but, it’s all done in vain.

We fight off the weariness,
from being disillusioned
we try not to faint under
the constant confusion.

All of our grueling work,
never seems to pay off
at times at our own selves
we can’t help but to scoff.

We still have hunger pangs,
our thirst is never satisfied
all our disappointments
are eternally magnified.

We feel the throb of sorrow,
we know the sting of grief
from sickness and death
we know there’s no relief.

In this, our worldly home,
the curse of sin always reigns
but, in our heavenly home . . .
nothing will cause us any pain!

Rescued ~

isaiah-41-10-hand-of-god-god-says used with permission Darrell Creswell

He came with a tender heart,
extended a loving hand
from my own misery
He helped me up to stand.

He saw that I was lost,
how my life lacked direction
He knew in the darkness
I couldn’t see the separation.

I was soiled, I was stained,
with the grime of my sin
He knew that I needed
to be cleansed from within.

He shined His light on me,
broke through the hard crust
showed me how much I needed
in Him, to believe and trust.

He was the voice of hope,
His promises I could hear
to His voice I listened
till He took away my fear.

He came with a tender heart,
rescued me with His loving hand
He gave me the gift of grace
now by faith ~ I firmly stand!

Isaiah 41:10
King James Version

“Fear thou not; for I am with thee: be not dismayed;
for I am thy God: I will strengthen thee; yea,
I will help thee; yea, I will uphold thee with
the right hand of my righteousness.”

In The Valley ~

Tea Plantation by Matt Gruber free photo on Creation Swap

In the valley dark and deep,
amid the shadows of despair
the beast of the world hides
looking for those he can snare.

On rebellions valley floor,
where misery loves to sleep
in the fields of hopelessness
lies the defiant little sheep.

Pastures once green and lush,
now covered with sin’s sludge
the wayward one is frightened
to meet its eternal Judge.

The rush of life-giving waters,
arouses the backslidden one
a soul entrenched in darkness
sobs for the light of the Son.

In the valley dark and deep,
the errant one turns to God
the beast of the world flees
to find another soul to trod.

Out of the shadows it emerges,
into pastures once more green
the wayward sheep now rests
on His mercy, it now leans.

In the valley deep and dark,
lies more defiant little sheep
and for each one of them
the Good Shepherd weeps.

If you are a rebellious one,
if you too have lost your way
come to where His mercy flows
and return to Him today!

Isaiah 53:6

“All we like sheep
have gone astray;

we have turned every one
to his own way;

and the Lord hath laid
on him the iniquity of us all.”
