Vanity, Oh Vanity ~

Vanity, oh vanity,
what gain is there in
the charm of your lure
only covers our sin.

On lofty pedestal,
is where you put us
so that in ourselves
not in God we’ll trust.

You tease and play,
with our heart and mind
vanity, oh vanity
your pride makes us blind.

You lift us up high,
proud chin and all
so we can’t look down
on the cause of our fall.

Ego, oh ego,
vanities conceited kin
in you there is no good . . .
beyond your wicked grin!

~~~~~

Ecclesiastes 1:2

“Vanity of vanities,
saith the Preacher,
vanity of vanities;
all is vanity.”

Grace Saw Beyond ~

God has Bee Gracious to Me used with permission from Darrell Creswell

Grace saw beyond,
the worthless and unworthy
it looked past the sin
with its unmerited mercy.

Grace saw beyond,
the bondage of the soul
it broke loose the yoke
to heal and make whole.

Grace saw beyond,
the outward behavior
it  looked past the wickedness
with its unwarranted favor.

Grace saw beyond,
the look of the proud
it recognized the helpless
standing out in a crowd.

Grace saw beyond,
the stony-human heart
it looked past the coldness
so love it could impart.

Grace saw beyond,
corruption, lust and greed
it came in the name of Jesus
so from works we’d be freed!

2 Timothy 1:9
King James Version

“Who hath saved us, and called us with an holy calling,
not according to our works,
but according to his own purpose and grace,
which was given us in Christ Jesus before the world began”

Wake Up Call

English: The face of a black windup alarm clock

The alarm has been set,
the hour is drawing near
and in these final moments
the wake-up call is clear.

The signs are all there,
just as we’ve been told
and it’s time to speak up
and for God to be bold.

Just take a look around,
and tell me what you see
haters of good and God
are evident to me.

You can see the ungodly,
up and down our streets
marching in defiance
on their self-serving feet.

Standing on our corners,
you’ll find those begging
for you to support
their unholy way of living.

Look at the love of money,
the ungratefulness
the way people lie and cheat
about their own recklessness.

Seated in our churches,
are those who once confessed
but, now their sins they deny
all they want is God to bless.

It time to listen up,
and hear the warning bell
lest you be left behind
and spend eternity in hell!!

2 Timothy 3:1-5
King James Version

“This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall
come. For men shall be lovers of their own selves,
covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to
parents, unthankful, unholy, without natural affection,
 trucebreakers, false accusers, incontinent, fierce,
 despisers of those that are good, Traitors, heady,
 highminded, lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God;
having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof:
from such turn away.”
