Direction’s Needed ~

When you’re not sure,
of the way to go . . .
when you need someone
the correct way to show.

Open up your ears,
to God’s divine direction
and He will lead you
to the path of perfection.

When you’re not convinced,
which way you should turn . . .
when you need to have
the wisdom to discern.

Open up your Bible,
learn to walk in it ways
and God will lead you
for the rest of your days.

When you need directions,
so you can be Spirit led . . .
open up your ears . . .
to that voice in your head!

Isaiah 30:21

And thine ears shall hear
a word behind thee, saying
This is the way walk ye in it
when ye turn to the right hand
and when ye turn to the left

Clouds Of Hopelessness ~

When clouds of hopelessness,
gather above your head . . .
when skies turn thunderous
as darkness they spread.

Look past the gloominess,
the misery and despair
and the hope you’ve found
to the heavens declare.

When shadows of dismay,
start to mess with your head
when shades of their distress
fill your thoughts with dread.

Look past the grimness,
the bleakness and gloom
and keep in mind that hope
in heaven you have a room.

When clouds of hopelessness,
cast shadows of desperation . . .
just keep your hope focused
on your eternal destination!

~~~~~~~~

Galatians 5:5

For we through the Spirit
wait for the hope of
righteousness by faith

Today I Heard From God ~

Today I heard from God,
He told me to keep believing
He told me to hold fast . . .
His peace I’d be receiving.

I heard Him tell me,
to take everything to Him
I heard Him say to wait
for His calm to set in.

Today I heard from God,
He told me not to doubt
He said to trust Him
as He’s working things out.

I heard Him tell me,
I have nothing to fear
I heard Him say to be strong
for He is always near.

Today I heard from God,
He told me to pray for you . . .
He told me that you needed
to hear today from Him too!

“I called upon

Jesus Is My Friend ~

Jesus is my friend,
on Him I can count
to help me figure
all my problems out.

For, He will guide me,
though the process
on how over them
not to obsess.

Jesus is my friend,
on Him I can rely
for He is my daily
most valuable ally.

For, He teaches me,
what I should know
about how His Father
would have me to go.

Jesus is my friend,
in Him I find rest
for I know He has
for me only His best!

Sometimes God Tells Me ~

Sometimes God makes me wait,
though I would rather just up and go
sometimes He tells me . . .
My child you need to take it slow.

Sometimes He says to get up,
when I would rather stay down
sometimes He tells me . . .
My child you need to turn around.

Sometimes God makes me sit still,
when I would rather proceed
sometimes He tells me . . .
My child your will to Me concede.

Sometimes He says to walk,
when I would rather off and run
sometimes He tells me . . .
My child put your trust in My Son.

Sometimes God makes me wait,
sometimes He tells me to go . . .
but, most of the time He tells me
My child be still till you know!

Wait on the Lord: be of good courage,

Thankful And Grateful ~

There’s always a reason,
for us to be thankful . . .
there’s always a chance
to show we are grateful.

But, so often we are not,
appreciative for all things
especially when hardships
a brand new day brings.

It’s easier to complain,
to criticize and grumble
to shake our heads in disbelief
then to be meek and humble.

For, when things don’t go our way,
we blame God and we curse
not realizing our lack of trust
only makes our problems worse.

There are plenty of reasons,
for us to be grateful . . .
but, first we need to learn
in everything to be thankful!

~~~~~~~~

1 Thessalonians 5:18

In every thing give thanks:
for this is the will of God in
Christ Jesus concerning you.

Have You Heard The Call ~

Have you heard the call,
from the world to depart
have you heeded to the cry
to its ways don’t be a part?

Have you met the challenge,
that by it you won’t be accepted
have you come to the terms
that you will be by it rejected?

Have you considered you’ll be,
harassed and persecuted
have you thought for your faith
you could be prosecuted?

Have you reflected about,
how by others you’ll be hated
have you pondered
for your belief you’ll be berated?

Is your life a reflection,
of your Father’s from above
is your heart ready to serve
those who hate you with His love?

~~~~~~~~

Romans 12:2

And be not conformed to this world:
but be ye transformed by the renewing

If the world hate you,
ye know that it hated
me before it hated you.

Nail It To The Cross ~

Whatever temptation,
may come your way
nail it to the cross . . .
and there it will stay.

When lust and greed,
enter into your mind
nail them to the cross . . .
and God’s peace you’ll find.

When sinful thoughts,
have you trembling
nail them to the cross . . .
for faith strengthening.

When bitterness,
foams within your heart
nail it to the cross . . .
and your pain will depart.

For, up on the cross,
Jesus willingly died . . .
and nailed onto Him
was our sinful pride!

And they that are Christ’s

Sufficient Today ~

Sufficient today,
is the strength I need
adequate it shows me
when the Bible I read.

For God has a supply,
that goes a long way
enough to give everyone
their share for the day.

Timely is today,
is the power I receive
ample is my faith
that I should believe.

That in my weaknesses,
is when I am strong
for Jesus gives me rest
when things go wrong.

Sufficient is today,
the grace I am given
for I am thankful everyday
that I am even forgiven!

~~~~~~

2 Corinthians 12:9

And he said unto me,
My grace is sufficient for thee:
for my strength is made perfect
in weakness. Most gladly therefore
will I rather glory in my infirmities,
that the power of Christ
may rest upon me.

Garments Of Rags ~

My garments were but rags,
dirty, stained and torn
they were old and ugly
and sinfully worn.

But, Jesus in exchange,
for my filthy clothing
knew God looked on them
with disgust and loathing.

So He took His own blood,
and washed away my sin
and now I am . . . .
cleansed from within.

Then He took my filthy rags,
gave to me a bride’s dress
so that to His Father
I could have access.

And now my garments,
are snowy white . . .
so before God I may stand
holy in His sight!

~~~~~~~~

Isaiah 1:18

Come now, and let us reason together,
saith the Lord: though your sins be as
scarlet, they shall be as white as snow;
though they be red like crimson,
they shall be as wool.

Isaiah 64:6

But we are all as an unclean thing,
and all our righteousnesses are as
filthy rags; and we all do fade as a leaf;
and our iniquities, like the wind,
have taken us away.

Wrapped Up In God’s Peace ~

When I find myself,
wrapped up in God’s peace
the breath inside of me
is easier to release.

For the peace of God,
relieves the tension
releasing me from
all my apprehension.

When I find myself,
in God’s peace guarded
with anxious thoughts
I’m no longer bombarded.

For the peace of God,
eases all the pressure
making my heart feel
lighter than a feather.

When I find myself,
in God’s peace wrapped
my mind won’t let go . . .
until more can be tapped!

~~~~~~~~

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.

Blessed Are The Hungry And Thirsty ~

Blessed are the hungry,
those who daily need
the Word of God
their faith to feed.

For they know His Word,
is the true Bread of Life
and without it their souls
would suffer eternal strife.

Blessed are the thirsty,
those who daily want
all of the mercies
for them God has got.

For they understand,
their fallen nature
and how through Jesus
they are a new creature.

Blessed are the hungering
and all those thirsting . . .
for living righteously
they are constantly striving!

do hunger and thirst after

I’m In It To Win It ~

Beaten but not broken,
down but not out . . .
for I am in this fight
to win the bout.

Shattered but not crushed,
weak but not frail . . .
for there’s no way I’ll let
satan to take me to hell.

Tattered but not torn,
bleak but not resigned . . .
for my heart and God’s
will always be aligned.

Fragile but not hopeless,
mournful but not blue . . .
for nothing can shake
my faith Lord in You.

Beaten but not broken,
for I’m in it to win it . . .
tis why you won’t see me
ever give up or quit!

2 Corinthians 4:8-10

We are troubled on every side,

we are perplexed,

Persecuted,
but not forsaken;
cast down,
but not destroyed;

Always bearing about in the body
the dying of the Lord Jesus,
that the life also of Jesus might
be made manifest in our body.

Jesus Is Our Helper ~

Jesus is our Helper,
from beginning to end
He’s been our Counselor
our trusted eternal Friend.

He is our Intercessor,
the link in our prayer chain
who helps when our words
we reach for and strain.

Jesus is our Advocate,
as our pleas to Him we aim
to God our litigator
when we call on His name.

He is our Strength,
who will never disappoint
in Him we have victory
through His vantage point.

Jesus is our Refuge,

Disappointed Never ~

My hope doesn’t disappoint,
let me down ~ never
my hope is a hope
nothing can sever.

For my hope is secure,
in Jesus its anchored
my hope cannot be
by anything hampered.

My hope doesn’t erode,
weaken on me ~ no way
nothing from my hope
can cause me to sway.

For my hope is grounded,
on Jesus my Rock
off of its foundation
I cannot be knocked.

My hope doesn’t disappoint,
let me down, never . . .
for my hope is in Jesus
and will last forever!

A Broken Spirit ~

Lord, give me a broken spirit,
one in itself no esteem
one who knows for its sins
only You can redeem.

Let it see it has no worth,
how it is totally wretched
how that for its salvation
to You it’s wholly indebted.

Bring it down to its knees,
let it see its fallen state
so it may find the way
through the narrow gate.

Let it know how bankrupt,
it would be if not for You
how only You can save it
not what it thinks it can do.

Lord give me a broken spirit,
a heart that is contrite
so I may be to You . . .
a sight of pure delight!

~~~~~~~~

Psalm 51:17

The sacrifices of God are a
broken spirit: a broken and
a contrite heart, O God, thou
wilt not despise.

The Road Into Heaven ~

The road into heaven,
isn’t on a street of clover
it’s full of dips and ditches
large bumps to get over.

It’s chuck-full of potholes,
to maneuver through
gaps and depressions
with lots of pitfalls too.

The road into heaven,
isn’t on a street named easy
it’s full of twists and turns
with curves that are sneaky.

It’s full of detours,
that will slow you down
roadblocks and delays
you’ll have to get around.

The road into heaven,
is on a One Way street
there is no other path . . .
if Jesus you want to meet!

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:

Water’s Troubling ~

I’ve been through water’s troubling,
in the turbulence of my mind
I’ve been tossed and shaken
by thoughts of every kind.

I’ve been blown all around,
in this whirlwind called life . . .
I’ve been in many storms
leaving me full of strife.

I’ve been through tumultuous times,
that were lengthy and prolonged
I’ve been through mind twisters
where anxious thoughts spawned.

I’ve been in deep dark waters,
with no sure way to get out
I’ve been in Satan’s cesspool
filled with dread, fear and doubt.

I’ve been through water’s troubling,
of every type and every kind . . .
but, Jesus has been the bridge
guarding my heart and mind!

The Deceitful Heart ~

The deceitful heart,
thinks it is good
cannot relate . . .
to this falsehood.

For at its core,
wickedness lies
keeping it from
becoming wise.

The deceitful heart,
thinks it is greater
then the one . . .
who is its creator.

For it tells itself,
it knows better
by believing in
its own chatter.

The deceitful heart,
won’t give Jesus the reins
for pure evilness
runs through its veins!

~~~~~~~~

Jeremiah 17:9-10

The heart is deceitful
above all things,
and desperately wicked:
who can know it?

I the Lord search the heart,
I try the reins, even to give
every man according to his
ways, and according to the
fruit of his doings.

Hope doesn’t disappoint,

For I need to be prudent,

with His strength and power.

I can’t worry about tomorrow,
today has enough of its own
therefore I won’t let anxiety
in my thoughts make a home.

For I need to be cautious,
with what I let in my head
for God’s Word reassures me . . .
there’s nothing for me to dread.

I can’t control the evil,
nor the wicked things out there
but, I can control my thoughts
by being in constant prayer!

I want to close my eyes tight

Sometimes I want to sit,

I want to shower on Him,

Sometimes I just want to stand,

For I know it only takes,

The Thunderbolts of Fear ~

The thunderbolt of fear,
is frightening and horrifying
as it releases its dread
with shocks of panic terrifying.

It freezes and it seizes,
our feet right to the floor
as soon as we begin to hear
its rumbling, cracking roar.

It moves so ever quickly,
through our worried minds
as it begins to settles in
our weaknesses it finds.

Fears jolting booming,
is felt deep in the heart
until a resounding dread
in our soul beings to start.

But, fear can be conquered,
when at first you hear its clap
if you take your worries . . .
and lay them in God’s lap!

For, our faith we ought not,

for God doles out . . .
to each their own share.

A measure of faith,
to all God has appointed
and over what others have
we must not get disjointed!

Behold, this is my Lord,
this is my Savior . . .
this is the One reason
I have God’s favor!

Matthew 17:5

While he yet spake, behold, a bright cloud
overshadowed them: and behold a voice
out of the cloud, which said,
This is my beloved Son,
in whom I am well pleased;
hear ye him.
