Repentant Tears ~

Repentant tears,
begin to fall . . .
as soon as one
hears the call.

From the Spirit,
of the Holy One
who gave His life
for everyone.

Down somewhere,
in the heart deep
a soul can’t help
but to sob and weep.

For once it encounters,
Jesus’ love and grace
tears flow thankfully
down it’s grateful face.

Repentant tears,
never stop falling
for they always hear
repentance calling!

The Lord is nigh unto them

A New Life In Christ~

A new life in Christ,
works needed no more
now grace and love
opens heaven’s door.

For all things old,
no longer acceptable
once Jesus became . . .
our sin’s receptacle.

A new life in Christ,
death to the law
no longer under
it’s working claw.

For Jesus died,
to set us all free
so under bondage
we’d no longer be.

A new life if Christ,
a matter of the heart
a gift to each of us . . .
only God can impart!

~~~~~~~~~~

Ephesians 2:8

For by grace are ye saved
through faith; and that not

it is the gift of God:

For with the heart man believeth
unto righteousness;
and with the mouth confession
is made unto salvation.

Totally Surrendered ~

Totally surrendered,
God wants it all
all that you have
nothing is too small.

You need to give Him,
all of your heart
He wants the whole of it
not just a tiny part.

Totally surrendered,
God wants to see
how much you want
like Jesus to be.

You need to submit,
to His perfect will
you must be willing
to wait and be still.

Totally surrendered,
God wants to know
how much you want
in Him to grow.

You have to let go,
of your selfish desires
you must be ready
for all He requires.

Totally surrendered,
God wants all of you
but you must want . . .
all of Him too!

Romans 12:1

“I beseech you therefore, brethren, by

Hebrews 2:3

 


God Loves You Just As You Are ~

God loves you,
just as you are . . .

He knows your pain
He sees your struggle
is not fought in vain.

He is mindful,
of how you’re feeling
He knows your wounds
are in need of healing.

God loves you,
just as you are . . .
He’s perfecting you
with each little scar!

God, My Truth ~

God, my Truth,

For to You I’m tethered,
my heart is trussed
there is no other . . .

my Cornerstone, My Rock
my soul is anchored
on hope’s secured dock.

For to You I’m bound,
locked into Your ways
may Your plans for me
I follow all of my days.

God’s Searching Glance ~

God’s searching glance,
never ceases . . .
over all the universe
it stretches and reaches.

There is no secret place,
that He can’t see into
no screen or cover
He can’t look through.

God’s searching gaze,
is penetrating . . .
thoughts and intentions
He’s always calculating.

He scans the whole world,
all day and all night
watches the good fight evil
right before His sight.

God’s searching glance,
constantly looks to find . . .

God’s Plans ~

Our plans,
are never the best
only God’s plans
bring eternal rest.

For our dreams,
when alone made
will like a flower
wither and fade.

Our wishes,
are never greater
only the desires
of our Creator.

For our hopes,
can’t compare
to God’s design
for our welfare.

Our plans,
we need to scrap
so the ones of God
into we can tap!

Isaiah 55:8-9

For my thoughts
are not your thoughts,
neither are your ways
my ways, saith the Lord.

and my thoughts
than your thoughts.

My Warts and All ~

I kissed me a prince,
but he turned into a toad
then he sent me packing . . .
down the lonely road.

So I went out searching,
looking for someone to love . . .
thought he’d be here on earth
instead He came from above.

With all of my ugly warts,
Jesus saw what was inside
for He discovered in me . . .
what other’s tossed aside.

He peered into my soul,
looked deep into my heart
so I took a leap of faith and found
my True Love from the start.

So if you are out there looking,
for a Prince to forever love . . .
stop chasing after all the toads
and just look to Jesus up above!

~~~~~~~~

1 Samuel 16:7

“But the Lord said unto Samuel,
Look not on his countenance,
or on the height of his stature;
because I have refused him:
for the Lord seeth not
as man seeth; for man looketh
on the outward appearance,
but the Lord looketh on the heart.”

The Light of Salvation~

My eyes have seen,
salvation’s Light
they have been given
a new glorious sight.

For once they were closed,
to the Truth and the Way
but now they observe
God’s mercy each day.

My eyes were shown,
Jesus’ Love and Grace
they have seen the light
now the Life they embrace.

For once they were shut,
but now they clearly see
the promise of peace
God has awaiting for me.

My eyes have observed,
the Light of salvation
and now they hold hope
in Christ’s resurrection!

God Gazes From Above ~

God gazes from above,
He’s looking to find
those searching for Him
with all their heart and mind.

He sees not a one,
not one who is seeking
all have turned aside
no one for Him is looking.

God looks to the East,
their souls to Him are idle
He scans to the West
they are their own idols.

He looks to the South,
no – not even one
He looks to the North
their hearts He has none.

God looks and He looks,
all across the seas . . .
but love for the Lord
isn’t in the hearts of these!

in this gloomy hour.

Troubles may be brewing,
but His awesome love
beams down brightly
from His throne above.

Times may be testing,

to all of His believers
will never fail or cease.

The tempest is a blowing,
but His amazing trust
keeps His faithful standing
against the strongest gust.

The earth is a trembling,
but His loving flock
knows He will not forsake
those clinging to the Rock.

Glory, Glory, Glory,
God’s awesome wonder
is shaking up the world
amidst His mighty thunder!

The Good Ground ~

A seed once fell,
on the good ground
and oh how my life . . .
it has turned around.

It slowly sprang up,
began to bear  fruit
for it in Jesus . . .
grew up and took root.

A seed was cultivated,
out of a conversation
about how Jesus . . .
was the way to salvation.

It was full of truth,
this I could not refute
and out of a stony heart
it produced an offshoot.

For now I am a sower,
of that good seed too
and I pray dear Jesus
I can lead more to You!

~~~~~~~

Luke 8:8

And other fell on good ground,

everything came into concert

The planets are in constant motion,
as the earth moves around the sun
the world was created so mankind
would know the love of His Son.

The day was made out of the dark,
by the power of the Father of Light
He gave us all His joyful radiance
so that we may have spiritual sight.

God established order in the world,
day and night will come to cease
the upheaval that the earth is in
will soon be washed in His peace.

everything is bathed in His grace
Jesus’ Light shines out of the dark . . .
one day all will confess to His face!

For the time will come,
when every one will confess
how they did or didn’t . . .
contribute to the mess.

Lord, we need to turn back,
our trust over to You
so You can restore our hearts
and our faith in You renew.

For the darkness now spreads,
across all the land . . .
and we need to return
our life’s into Your hand.

Lord, this country . . .
is so in need of restoration
every single soul needs
forgiveness unto salvation!

~~~~~~~

2 Chronicles 7:14

If my people, which are called by my name,
shall humble themselves, and pray,
and seek my face, and turn from their
wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven,
and will forgive their sin,
and will heal their land.

Good Morning Quote ~06.27.20~


God Loves The Yielding Heart ~

God loves the little sparrows,
all the flowers in the fields
He loves a repentant heart
that to Him at last yields.

He loves the morning hour,
when the sun is on the rise
He loves a searching heart
that is seeking to be wise.

God loves the daily warmth,
the cool breeze in the air
He loves the burdened heart
giving to Him all its care.

God loves the evening time,
when the sun slowly sets
He loves when a hungry heart
appetites in Him are whet.

God loves the moon shinning,
the twinkling in the sky
He loves a prayerful heart
that holds a jubilant cry.

God loves His little sparrows,
His faithful lilies of the field
He loves whatever the time . . .
hearts to Him relent and yield!

~~~~~~~~~

Romans 6:13

“But yield yourselves unto God,
as those that are alive from the dead,
and your members as instruments
of righteousness unto God.”

Jesus Is Waiting For You~

Jesus is waiting,
for you at the well  . . .
He wants you to sit
with Him for a spell.

He knows you’re thirsty,
for your soul, He is too
He wants to give you
life from another view.

Jesus is waiting,
for you to dip down in
the water that’s living . . .
and become one with Him.

He wants you to drink,
from His love and grace
so your life of sin
you’ll no longer embrace.

Jesus is sitting,
at the well He’s waiting . . .
to forgive you of the sin
on your soul weighing!

~~~~~~~

John 4.10

Jesus answered and said unto her,
If thou knewest the gift of God,
and who it is that saith to thee,
Give me to drink; thou wouldest
have asked of him, and he would
have given thee living water.

Jesus Is Enough ~

Jesus is enough,
there’s nothing you can do
Jesus is the only One
who can save you.

Jesus is enough,
He is above everything
Jesus is the one absolute
He is the sum of all things.

Jesus is enough,
no need to add or take away
Jesus is the only One
leading to the Life, Truth and Way.

Jesus is enough,
He is the One constant and true
Jesus grace is sufficient
there’s nothing more to pursue.

Jesus is enough,
everything else put aside
for no works of our labor . . .
can salvation provide!

~~~~~~~~~~

Acts 4:12

Neither is there salvation
in any other:
for there is none other name
under heaven given among men,
whereby we must be saved.

The City of No Mores ~

In the City of No Mores,
is where I long to be . . .
oh, how I can hardly wait
until Jesus returns for me.

On the street of No More Tears.
we’ll never again weep or cry
for there will only be bliss
as every eye will be dry.

On the road of No More Pain,
we’ll be complete and whole
for we’ll have a new body
and a new glorified soul.

Down the path of No More Sin,
we will leap, jump and run
for our battle against satan
will be finally won.

On the way of No More Death,
there’ll be a jubilant parade
for from the devil evil-doings
we’ll never again be afraid.

In the City of No Mores,
is where we’ll spend eternity
and dwell in the mansion . . .
of No More Agony!

~~~~~~~~~~

Revelation 21:4

“And God shall wipe away
all tears from their eyes;

and there shall be no more death,
neither sorrow,
nor crying,

neither shall there be

are passed away.”

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?

1 Corinthians 1:18

 

‘For the preaching of the cross
is to them that perish foolishness;

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.

A Mind Focused In On Jesus ~

A mind focused,
in on Jesus . . .
is a heart rested
on forgiveness.

For it acknowledges,
it’s once fallen state
how Jesus saved it
from damnation’s fate.

A life centered,
on the cross
is a soul aware
it was once dross.

For it recognizes,
without the resurrection
there would be no hope
for eternal salvation.

A mind focused,
on their Savior
is a heart resting on
God’s mercy and favor!

~~~~~~~~~~

Neither is there salvation
in any other:for there is
none other name under heaven

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.

Good Morning Quote ~06.03.20~


The Time Is Getting Short ~

The time is impending,
satan is working overtime
we need to be ready . . .
for Jesus could come anytime.

We need to be aware,
of the ticking of the clock
for the devil’s out prowling
to devour up His flock.

The time is approaching,
each day it’s getting clearer
the awaited return of Christ
is getting so much nearer.

We need to be prepared,
as the hours roll on by
for in a second we may see
the twinkling in our eye.

The time is getting short,
each day we’re getting closer
to when Jesus comes again
and we must remain sober!

~~~~~~~~~~

Romans 13:11

And that, knowing the time,
that now it is high time
to awake out of sleep:
for now is our salvation
nearer than when we believed.

I Long To Dwell ~

I long to dwell,
in eternal peace . . .
where fear and death
will forever cease.

Where things are seen,
through tearless eyes
where joyous shouts
are the only cries.

I long to dwell,
on the other side
where with God
believer’s reside.

Where sorrow stops,
as mourning ends
to spend eternity
with my forever Friend.

I long to dwell,
far from this place
where tears no longer
stream down our face!

~~~~~~~~~~

Revelation 21:4

And God shall wipe away all tears
from their eyes; and there shall
be no more death, neither sorrow,
nor crying, neither shall there
be any more pain: for the former
things are passed away.

Jesus Opens Hearts ~

Jesus opens hearts,
and doors too . . .
He knows where to look
for you and you.

You cannot hide,
behind your wall
He knows your name
you’ll hear His call.

You may run,
but, He’s ahead of you
you may be unfaithful
but, His love is true.

You might wander,
and go astray
but, He will find you
again one day.

He will never, ever,
let you go
the way back to Him
He’ll gladly show.

For, He opens doors,
He’ll hear you knock
and when you return . . .
Jesus will be your Rock!

~~~~~~~~

Signs Of The Times ~

Signs of the times,
everywhere you look
all once foretold . . .
in the Good Book.

Rebellion rampant,
morality unbridled
unbelievers in God
defiance entitled.

Seductive beguilers,
lovers of gratification
lust and sin loaded
reeking of corruption.

Hatred unrestrained,
ingrates thankless
pleasure seekers
unruly and godless.

Covetousness amok,
seducers worsening
all because satan . . .
is evil and deceiving!

~~~~~~~~~~

2 Timothy 3:1-13

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;

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!

~~~~~~~~~~~

“And other sheep I have,
which are not of this fold:

them also I must bring,
and they shall hear my voice;

Christ Preached ~

If more preachers,
Christ would preach
more sinners  . . .
they could reach.

If Jesus’ message,
from pulpits they’d tell
less unsaved . . .
would go to hell.

If more preachers,
Christ would preach
more lost sheep . . .
they could teach.

If the moral law,
they were to read
less wanderers . . .
they would breed.

If more preachers,
Christ would preach
more unbelievers . . .
may heed their speech!

~~~~~~~~~~

2 Timothy 4:2

Preach the word;
be instant in season,
out of season; reprove,
rebuke, exhort with all
long suffering and doctrine.

For the wages of sin is death;
but the gift of God is eternal
life through Jesus Christ our Lord.

Romans 6:23


Spirit Of Truth ~

Spirit of Truth,
come protect me
to satan lies . . .
let me not agree.

For he skews,
Your every Word
till Your Gospel
is so blurred.

Spirit of Truth,
Jesus incarnate
help me to You
the path navigate.

For the way is wide,
the crowd is deep
filling up fast
with Your lost sheep.

Spirit of Truth,
never leave me
lest from satin’s lies . . .
I too can’t flee!

~~~~~~~

John 16:13

Howbeit when he, the Spirit of truth,
is come, he will guide you into all truth:
for he shall not speak of himself;
but whatsoever he shall hear,
that shall he speak: and he will
shew you things to come.

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!

Perfect Vision~

Oh, if you had the insight,
that Jesus has today
you’d see how His death
prepared for all the way.

Then you’d understand,
the richness of His grace
how the steps of salvation
Jesus had to embrace.

Oh, to be enlightened,
to have the wisdom
to see through God’s eyes
with a perfect vision.

Then you’d see how glorious,
your inheritance will be
when the day in heaven
His magnificent you see.

Oh, to have eyes open,
hearts filled with His love
then all of us could spend
eternity with God above!

~~~~~~~~~~

1 Corinthians 2:9

But as it is written,

that love him.

Living On The Vine ~

Living on the Vine,
takes obedience
it takes a faith
full of resilience.

It takes meekness,
zeal and devotion
it takes a life
under submission.

Living on the Vine,
takes enduring
it takes a trust
securely assuring.

It takes training,
divine direction
it takes a heart
open to instruction.

A life on the Vine,
takes faithful abiding
if good fruit . . .
it want’s to be providing!

Abide in me, and I in you.

oh, what a investment
on the Foundation to build.

Oh, what a reward,
to endure until the end
oh, what an opportunity
to know Jesus as our Friend.

Oh, what a privilege,
to be called God’s children
oh, what a blessing . . .
to be a part of the pilgrim!

to them gave he power to become
the sons of God, even to them
that believe on his name:
