A Tranquility To Find~

There is a tranquility,
a calm to be found
when your every care
onto Jesus you unbound.

Then His peace will bind,
your heart and mind
and all your anxiety
will begin to unwind.

There is a tranquility,
a peace to receive
when your every worry
onto Jesus you relieve.

Then His calm will take,
control of your life
as you feel the easing
of your daily strife.

There is a tranquility,
a peace to discover
one that with Jesus . . .
will last now and forever!

Psalm 29:11

The Lord will give strength

Be Uncompromising ~

Be unshakeable,
in the power of His might
be unbendable

be unwavering
so not to be confounded.

Be unflinching,

Hope For The Best ~

I hope for the best,
a new day can bring
but, I am prepared for . . .
just about anything.

For I do not know,
what may come my way
tis why each morning
to God I bow and pray.

I hope for the greatest,
outcome He might send
but, I am braced for . . .
what’s around the bend.

For I trust and believe,
irrespective of . . .
whatever God decides
is out of His love.

I hope for the best,
the greatest day there is
but, I am ready for . . .
anything because I’m His!

He shall not be afraid

The Old Man Crucified ~

Is the old man crucified,
is he nailed to the tree
have you to your past sins
finally been set him free?

For when the old man,
you finally crucify . . .
your old sinful nature
you’ll not want to satisfy.

Is your old man dead,
did he die to self and pride
have you now a heart
where Jesus can abide?

For when the new man,
you put on and wear
to the Holy Spirit wooing
you will be aware.

Is the old man truly,
in your life crucified
or has the new man . . .
been pushed aside?

~~~~~~~~~~

Galatians 2:20

I am crucified with Christ:
nevertheless I live;
yet not I, but Christ liveth in me:
and the life which I now live
in the flesh I live by the faith
of the Son of God, who loved me,
and gave himself for me.

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.

Are You Ready To Go ~

Are you ready to go,
with Jesus to the Cross
are you ready . . .
for that bridge to cross?

Are you ready to go,
and repent and confess
are you ready . . .
to be eternally blessed?

Are you ready to go,
deep within your heart
are you ready . . .
for a new life to start?

Are you ready to go,
into the depth of your soul
are you ready . . .
for Jesus to make you whole?

Are you ready to go,
can this bridge you get across
are you ready to be saved . . .
by the power of the Cross?

‘For the preaching of the cross

My Hope Doesn’t Disappoint ~

My hope doesn’t disappoint,
it never lets me down
it allows me to keep . . .
both heart and mind sound.

It gives me reasons,
to rejoice and to sing
it encourages me
in the storms life brings.

My hope doesn’t disappear,
it never goes away
it enables me to stay
on the narrow pathway.

It gives me confidence,
equips me for warfare
to satan and his army
it keeps me daily aware.

My hope doesn’t derail,
when trials come to test me
for Lord my hope and trust . . .
I have place in only Thee!

~~~~~~~~~~

Jeremiah 17:7

Blessed is the man that trusteth
in the Lord, and whose hope the Lord is.

Thou wilt keep him in perfect peace,
whose mind is stayed on thee:

When God’s Silent ~

Is it God who is silent,
or am I just not hearing . . .
that tiny whispered breath
of the Holy Spirit stirring?

Is it God who is distant,
or am I the one far away . . .
is it why His influence
cannot rest on me today?

Is it God who is quiet,
or am I way too active . . .
to let the Holy Spirit
take my thoughts captive?

Is it God, who is still,
or am I not taking note . . .
is it why His small voice
seems so far and remote?

Is it God who is silent,
or am I just too into me
is that why dear Father . . .
You’re not hearing my plea?

~~~~~~~~~~~

Psalm 22:2

O my God,
I cry in the day time,

 but thou hearest not;
and in the night season,

and am not silent.”

The Children of Knowledge ~

The children of knowledge,
walk in the Light . . .
yet everyday darkness
they still have to fight.

They wear the breastplate,
of their faith and love
to protect themselves
from wicked powers above.

The children of awareness,
are watchful and wise
they can see right through
satan’s disguises and lies.

They wear the helmet,
of eternal hope
the Word of God
is their righteous robe.

The children of Light,
walk in all of God’s ways
they do not fear . . .
the end time days!

~~~~~~~

1Thessalonians 5:8

But let us, who are of the day,
be sober, putting on the breastplate
of faith and love; and for an helmet,
the hope of salvation.

Guarding Your Heart ~

Guarding your heart,
is a daily must . . .
and the Holy Spirit
you’ll need to trust.

For He’ll alert you to,
satan’s earthly snares
so to his tipsy bait
you will be aware.

Preparing your heart,
is a daily thing . . .
for you never know
the cares it’ll bring.

For a heart ready,
is a warrior sober
and to satan’s lures
it will not trip over.

Guarding your heart,
is a daily to do . . .
for it may be the day
Jesus comes for you!

~~~~~~~

Luke 21:34

And take heed to yourselves,
lest at any time your hearts
be overcharged with surfeiting,
and drunkenness, and cares of
this life, and so that day
come upon you unawares.

Oh, To Hear His Voice ~

Oh, to hear His voice in clarity,
confusion to come to cease
to rid our life of all anxiety
with the infusion of His peace.

To know His voice of wisdom,
all foolishness put to an end
to listen for His instructions
on life’s every path and bend.

To know His voice of counsel,
all bad advice to be banished
to oust the voice of darkness
until wickedness has vanished.

To know His voice of rest,
all fear brought to its knees
to drive out the enemy
and watch him as he flees.

To know His voice of truth,
all deception put to bed
to cast out satan’s trickery
so we can be Spirit lead.

Oh, to hear His voice in clarity,
is our Shepherd’s prayer
to rid our lives of anxiety . . .
so to find rest in His care!

Only Jesus ~

There’s no other name like Jesus,
no other One we can call on
no other person that can help us
to be to His Father drawn.

There’s no other name in heaven,
no other name given unto man
no other person who has for us
the way to salvation’s plan.

There’s no other name like Jesus,
no other One with such power
no other One we can rely on
no matter the given hour.

There’s no other name we know,
no other One that loves us
no other name that spells out
in whom we can always trust.

There is no other name that shines,
no other One has the light
no other name helping us
in the battles we fight.

There is no other name like Jesus,
no other name that we can call
no other person can save us
It’s only Jesus ~ or no one at all!

Joy Comes On Morning’s Light ~

Joy comes,
to heart’s broken
joy returns
in words unspoken.

Joy arises,
from out of the pits
joy emerges
with strength and grit.

Joy enters,
with peace and calm
joy becomes
the soul’s healing balm.

Joy reaches,
into mind’s affected
Joy arrives
when least expected

Joy follows,
weeping nights
joy arises
on morning’s light!

Make my way straight Lord,

from the truth I know
let not my heart sway.

Let my mind not wander,
from the path I’m on
let me to Your ways
be faithfully drawn.

Make my way straight Lord,
let not my faith shift
from Your guidance
let not my trust drift.

Let my hope not waver,
from depending on You
let me heed Your direction
in everything I do.

Make my way straight Lord,
let me on You be dependent
in all of Your ways Lord
let me be obedient!

Life Is Like A Journey ~

Life is like a journey
into a vast wilderness
so often we get lost
due to our own willfulness.

But when we let God,
guide us with His Light
our pride and ego
we can wisely fight.

Life is like a journey,
into a dark abyss
so often we get stuck
and the mark we miss.

But when we trust God,
as our strength and shield
to sin and temptation
we won’t want to yield.

Life is like a journey,
into a wasteland sprawling
but we who know God . . .
into living water keep drawing!

~~~~~~~~~~

Isaiah 58:11

And the Lord shall guide thee continually,
and satisfy thy soul in drought, and make
fat thy bones: and thou shalt be like a

whose waters fail not.

The Devil Knows ~

The devil knows,
just when to come around
he knows what to do
to shoot your faith down.

So he watches for signs,
of defeat and frustration
then fires his lies at you
to increase your vexation.

The devil knows,
your mind’s a minefield
he knows it’s his prime
spiritual battlefield.

So he looks for signals,
of apathy and weariness
then brings in his big guns
of despair and hopelessness.

The devil knows,
when the time is right
so be armed and ready . . .
to stand up and fight!

~~~~~~~~~~

Ephesians 6:11-12

Put on the whole armour of God,
that ye may be able to stand
against the wiles of the devil.

For we wrestle not against flesh
and blood, but against principalities,
against powers, against the rulers
of the darkness of this world,
against spiritual wickedness in high places.

I’m claiming my peace,
I am coming to rest
knowing that for me

But, it up to me,
to trust with all my heart
so I’m claiming my peace
upon morning’s start.

I’m claiming my quietness,
I am going to rely
on Jesus’ to steady me
till this storm passes by

But, it’s left to me,
to trust with all my mind
so I’m claiming my calm
that only in Him I can find.

I’m claiming God’s peace,
my understanding it’ll surpass . . .
and then my heart and mind
fear no longer can harass!

Fools For Chirst ~

Hurting CHRISTians all around,
I hear your pain, I know the sound
I see the battle that you fight . . .
being for Jesus His saving light.

I know your hurts are for real,
you cannot help how you feel
in the world you are despised
but you’re precious in God’s eyes.

In this world that takes and takes,
there’s no forgiveness for mistakes
if you believe and in God trust
in Jesus’s name you’ll be cussed.

We’re not perfect God knows this,
and the mark we’ll often miss
people can be so mean and cruel . . .
but, for Christ’s sake we’ll be a fool.

Our Lord Jesus saves us from,
the pounding beat of satan’s drum
for it is His wisdom that we seek . . .
tis why His Strong the world calls weak!

~~~~~~~~~~

Contemplating My Faith ~

Sometimes to myself,
I have a long talk . . .
I ponder how I’ve walked
the faithful walk.

I dwell on my hope,
with care I think about
the times I trusted God
and those full of doubt.

Sometime to myself,
I sit and meditate . . .
with fear and trembling
my faith I contemplate.

I dwell on my Savior,
all He’s done for me
how He’s given me hope
in things I want to see.

Sometimes to myself,
I have a long chit-chat . . .
knowing my salvation
I’ll always need to work at!

~~~~~~~

Philippians 2:12

Wherefore, my beloved,
as ye have always obeyed,
not as in my presence only,

it’ll keep broadcasting.

For it is unending,

Your Word Oh Lord,
is unchanging . . .
after all else withers
it’ll remain unfailing.

For it is living,
endlessly unwavering
full of truth and power
to the yielded and unyielding.

Your Word Oh Lord,
is tireless . . .
after all else passes
it’ll stay ceaseless!

You May Be Weak ~

You may be weak,
but, God is strong
you may be anxious
but, His patience is long.

You may be troubled,
but, God is not
you may be concern
but, He is never fraught.

You may be distraught,
but, God is not frantic
you may be desperate
but, He never panics.

You may be restless,
but, God never tires
you may give up
but, He never retires.

You may be weak,
weary every day . . .
but, with God’s strength
you’ll not faint away!

Deliverance ~

Deliverance,
atonement for sin
forgiveness divine
new life to begin.

Cancellation of debt,
remembering no more
new heart given to all
at salvation’s Door.

Redemption,
condemnation free
peace with God

Reconciliation,
rebellion’s settlement
by grace through faith
the only requisite.

Deliverance,
God’s way to deal
with sin’s affects

As The Winds Blow ~

When you see a storm,
blowing your way . . .
make sure you’re ready
to swing with the sway.

For you’ll need to be,
on your feet sturdy
so your faith in Jesus
remains fast and steady.

When you see a storm,
out in front of you . . .
make sure you’re prepared
to thrust with the gust.

For you’ll need to be,
strong and resilient
if your trust in God
is to be consistent.

When you see a storm,
as the winds head your way
remember Jesus they’ll obey . . .
when to Him You pray!

Wicked High Places ~

Spiritual wickedness,
we all have to fight
but first we must pray
with all of our might.

For we won’t know,
how we’re to win . . .
or have the strength
to overcome sin.

Spiritual wickedness,
aiming for our hearts
with satan we battle
unending fiery darts.

For he wants us to lose,
the hope of our salvation
by luring us into . . .
his pit of temptation.

Wicked high places,
everywhere you look . . .
but God has a battle plan
for us in the Good Book!

~~~~~~~~~~

Ephesians 6:12-13

“For we wrestle not against
flesh and blood, but against
principalities, against powers,
against the rulers of the darkness

the whole armour of God,
that ye may be able to
withstand in the evil day,
and having done all, to stand.”

Faith For the Impossible~

Faith doesn’t make,
things easier . . .
it won’t make life
get any breezier.

But faith can and will,
make things possible
when you give to God
the improbable.

Faith doesn’t make,
problems lighter . . .
it won’t make life
anymore kinder.

But faith can and will,
make things workable
when you give Jesus
the imaginable.

Faith doesn’t make,
life go any smoother
but God can make you . . .
a mountain mover!

~~~~~~~

Matthew 17:20

And Jesus said unto them,
Because of your unbelief:
for verily I say unto you,
If ye have faith as a grain
of mustard seed, ye shall say
unto this mountain,
Remove hence to yonder place;
and it shall remove;
and nothing shall be
impossible unto you.

The Spirit of Power ~

God has not given us,
a spirit of fear . . .
but, one of His power
to keep us to Him near.

No worry shall cause,
us to tremble or shake
not even the enemy
can author us to faint.

God has not given us,
a spirit of neglect . . .
but, one of His love
with regard and respect.

We shall speak the truth,
for in God we do trust
we care about others
because, He first loved us.

God has not given us,
a spirit of trepidation . . .
but, of a sound mind
not filled with irritation.

We are full of His peace,
there’s a calm deep inside
our tranquilly declares . . .
His Spirit is our guide.

God has given us a spirit,
not full of dread or fear . . .
but of power, love and peace
hope, gladness and good cheer!

the spirit of fear;

When You Need A Hand ~

When you need,

you in His grasp.

When you need,
extra support . . .
before you legs
start to contort.

On God’s hand,
trust and lean
and His power
you will glean.

When you need,
to be bold . . .
onto God’s hand
keep a firm hold!

Isaiah 41:10

Fear thou not; for I am with thee:

Do Not Despair ~

Do not despair,
do not be oppressed

I will not let anything
cause you to be harmed.

Do not doubt,
do not be disillusioned
I have waiting for you
an joyful conclusion.

Do not anguish,

if on Me you hold fast.

Do not despair,

I Want To Be That Eagle ~

I want to be that eagle,
that knows when to soar
who patiently waits . . .
for guidance from the Lord.

Then I would discover,
how to spread my wings
then I’d be able to conquer
all the storms life brings.

I want to have the wisdom,
to be able to discern . . .
how to fly over the clouds
not faint in my concern.

Then I’d have His strength,
to mount up and rise
trusting in His foresight
not what’s before me eyes.

I want to be that eagle,
who never gets weary
I want it to be the Lord . . .
who I can trust clearly!

~~~~~~~~~

Isaiah 40:31

“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;
and they shall walk, and not faint.”

Love Released Me ~

Love released me,
from the mire
took my life
lifted me higher.

It picked me up,
when I was down
it stood me up
on firm ground.

Love pulled me,
out of the pit
took my heart
raised my spirit.

It hoisted me,
in faith and hope
It boosted me
in trust to cope.

Love removed,
my doubt and fear
Love came down . . .
to draw me near!

1 John 4:18

There is no fear in love;
but perfect love casteth out fear:
because fear hath torment.
He that feareth is not made

The Wind of The Spirit ~

The wind of God’s Spirit,
is relentlessly active . . .
where it chooses to blow
no one can keep track of.

It can’t be viewed by the eye,
only detected by the ear
but you can feel its power
whenever it comes near.

The wind of God’s Spirit,
is like a breeze whispering
or it can be like a gust
as it swiftly comes rushing.

It’s an ongoing indwelling,
a constant infilling
of God’s holy power
a continuous refilling.

The mighty wind of God,
isn’t seen but it’s heard . . .
and those born of the Spirit
know when it’s being stirred!

~~~~~~~~~~

John 3:8

The wind bloweth where it listeth,
and thou hearest the sound thereof,
but canst not tell whence it cometh,
and whither it goeth: so is every one
that is born of the Spirit.

Relying On God ~

Make relying on God,
a part of your day . . .
before you set out
for His strength pray.

For you’re going to need,
His mighty power
just knowing that satan
is out to devour.

Make God your refuge,
throughout your day
ask Him to guide you
as you make your way.

For you’re going to want,
on Him to depend
when for your beliefs
you have to defend.

Make relying on God,
a daily choice . . .
then count on Him
to give you a voice!

Psalm 59:17

Unto thee, O my strength,
will I sing: for God is my
defence, and the God of my mercy.

If God ~

If for us God has plans,
if He knows our future
why don’t we believe
and trust Him sooner?

If He has for us good things,
if He provides our needs
why don’t we follow Him
regardless of where He leads?

If God gives us joy,
if He fills us with peace
why doesn’t our faith in Him
continue to increase?

If He provides our strength
if He equips us with power
why then does our hope
turn so often sour?

If we trust and believe,
God plans and not our own
to His guidance we’d be . . .
more spiritually prone!

~~~~~~~~

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 15:13

Now the God of hope fill you
with all joy and peace in believing,
that ye may abound in hope,
through the power of the Holy Ghost.

Equipped ~

Father equip us,
with Your power and might
as today we prepare . . .
for this battle we fight.

Outfit us with the truth,
so we may endure
the pull of the darkness
and it’s wicked allure.

Father arm us,
for the battle ahead
prepare for us the way
so we can be Spirit led.

Supply us with the trust,
as with evilness we grapple
give us Your strength
as wickedness we tackle.

Father equip us,
so that we will be ready
to fight the good fight . . .
with a faith that is steady!

~~~~~~~~~~

Ephesians 6:12-18

For we wrestle not against
flesh and blood,
but against principalities,
against powers,
against the rulers of the
darkness of this world,
against spiritual wickedness
in high places.

Wherefore take unto you
the whole armour of God,
that ye may be able to
withstand in the evil day,
and having done all, to stand.

Stand therefore, having your loins
girt about with truth, and having
on the breastplate of righteousness;

And your feet shod with the preparation
of the gospel of peace;

Above all, taking the shield of faith,
wherewith ye shall be able to quench
all the fiery darts of the wicked.

And take the helmet of salvation,
and the sword of the Spirit,
which is the word of God:

Praying always with all prayer
and supplication in the Spirit,
and watching thereunto with all
perseverance and supplication
for all saints;

Faith Without Grace ~

Grace and faith,
a winning combination
for it is the key . . .
to eternal salvation.

You can’t have one,
with out the other
for faith without grace
your sins won’t cover.

Grace and faith,
are a reckoning source
when added together
they’re a powerful force.

For grace is the channel,
faith is the condition
without both of them
there is no redemption.

Grace and faith,
is the lone connection
and it comes from only . . .
one divine direction!

Ephesians 2:8

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

All Things Created ~

All things held together,
by God’s mighty hands
all things come together
according to His plans.

All things in heaven,
by God were fashioned
all things here on earth
He wisely sanctioned.

All things that are seen,
and all that which are not
were conceived by God
and the power of His thought.

The thrones and the rulers,
the mandates that be
were all formed and made
to give glory to Thee.

All things by God,
were created and established
so His plan for salvation . . .
could be accomplished!

~~~~~~~

Colossians 1:16-18

For by him were all things created,
that are in heaven,
and that are in earth,
visible and invisible,
whether they be thrones, or dominions,
or principalities, or powers:
all things were created by him,
and for him:

And he is before all things,
and by him all things consist.

And he is the head of the body,
the church: who is the beginning,
the firstborn from the dead;
that in all things he might have
the preeminence.

The Happy CHRISTian ~

The happy CHRISTian,
reads the Scriptures
the grace of Jesus

They find their pleasure,
not in worldly things
but in the peace and joy
His salvation brings.

They shun the world,
find in it no delight
the Word they meditate
both the day and night.

They are like a tree,
that is rooted well
for inside their soul
the Holy Spirit dwells.

The happy CHRISTian,
pursues the right way
that is why they read . . .
God’s Word every day!

Perfect Purposeful Love ~

Perfect love,
drives out fear
it encourages

It is mighty,

it is potent
and powerful.

Perfect love,

It is resilient,
infinity reaching
it is faith . . .
mountain moving.

Perfect love,

for God’s power
it supplies!

For the closer,
I become to You . . .
I see how much
for me that You do.

I love you Lord,
more than I think
I love you more . . .
as my ego shirks.

For the nearer,
to You I become . . .
the more to You
my pride succumbs.

I love You Lord,
with a love that’s true . . .
the more I grow
Lord, down into You!

upon salvation’s hearth.

we are dependent on Thee!

Abba Our Father ~

Abba my Father,
has adopted me
into His family
so I could be . . .

An heir to salvation,
a daughter of light
a child that brings
to Him great delight.

No longer an orphan,
no longer a stray
I’ve inherited a room
in His mansion I’ll stay.

Abba my Father,
has adopted me
into His family
so I can be free . . .

Free from the guilt,
of my wandering ways
free from the darkness
that once filled my days.

The adoption became final,
that day on the Cross
when Jesus died for me
and all those who are lost.

Abba my Father,
has adopted me
into His family
so I might see . . .

See His glory,
in the midst of my pain
see His grace fall
like sweet drops of rain.

The inheritance is mine,
I’m claiming my right
and now I have privilege
to His power and might.

Abba my Father,
has adopted me
into His family,
I willingly flee . . .
