I Know God’s Name ~

I know God’s name,
in Him I do trust
for I know He’s fair
and always just.

In Him I find,
my peace and rest
for He gives to me
only His very best.

I call on Him,
when I’m troubled
He rescues me
on the double.

He never fails,
or forsakes me
from all my fears
He sets me free.

I know God’s name,
I seek His face
He bestows on me
His mercy and grace!

~~~~~~~~

Psalm 9:10

And they that know thy name
will put their trust in thee:
for thou, Lord, hast not forsaken
them that seek thee.

Proverbs 18:10

The name of the Lord
is a strong tower:
the righteous runneth
into it, and is safe.

It’s All About God’s Grace ~

It’s all about God’s grace,
not about what you do
it’s all about Jesus . . .
and what He did for you.

For grace is forgiving,
it frees you from your sin
it’s not something earned
or anything you can win.

It’s all about God’s grace,
His mercy and favor . . .
it’s all about having faith
in Christ, Jesus your Savior.

For grace is liberating,
there is no cost to you
Jesus paid the full price
there’s nothing left to do.

It’s all about God’s grace,
the confession of sin
it’s all about repentance
to be cleansed from within.

For grace will set you free,
from under satan’s claws
all you need is faith . . . .
for grace erased the laws.

It’s all about grace,
liberating and freeing
it is a gift from God . . .
well worth your receiving!

Ephesians 2:8

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

On The Path To Life ~

God leads us,
on the path to Life
He guides our steps
in the thick of strife.

He offers to us,
His hand guiding
He catches our feet
when they go sliding.

Traveling together,
we follow, He leads . . .
knowing He’ll take
care of our needs.

He teaches us along,
the righteous way
how to stay close
how never to stray.

A walk of faith,
together we take
on the road to Life
for His name sake!

He restoreth my soul:

Not Ashamed ~

I am not ashamed,
of the hope I hold
for it has rendered
my faith strong and bold.

For I’ve experienced,
test and trials galore
and grew in patience
amidst their uproar.

I am not ashamed,
of God’s love for me
for I am convinced
in what I cannot see.

For I’ve been through,
countless storms in life
and found the patience
to endure their strife.

I am not ashamed,
of placing in God my hope
for His Spirit gives to me . . .
the patience I need to cope!

~~~~~~~~

Romans 5:3-5

And not only so, but we glory in
tribulations also: knowing that
tribulation worketh patience;

And patience, experience;
and experience, hope:

And hope maketh not ashamed;
because the love of God is shed
abroad in our hearts by the Holy
Ghost which is given unto us.

The Enemy Is Pouncing ~

Help me Lord,
for the enemy is pouncing
he has my heart
jumping and bouncing.

He wants me to be,
restless and powerless
so that I will feel
desperate and defenseless.

Help me Lord,
for the enemy is lunging
he has my thoughts
plummeting and plunging.

He wants me to be,
hopeless and helpless
so that I will feel
useless and hapless.

Help me Lord,
for the enemy is seeking
to devour my faith
with his lies beseeching!

Be sober, be vigilant;

Jesus Leads Me ~

Jesus leads me,
on paths upright
and I follow Him
much to His delight.

He guides me in ways,
I didn’t even know
and I trust the right one
to me He will show.

Jesus leads me,
in times of drought
He helps me through
periods of doubt.

For He satisfies,
my hunger and thirst
tis why each morning
I seek His face first.

Jesus leads me,
now and to the end
for He is my one . . .
true eternal Friend.

And the Lord shall guide thee

Starting A New Year ~

I’m starting a New Year,
putting the last behind . . .
for, God has a purpose
in this one for me to find.

I don’t know what it’ll be,
not sure where it’ll lead
but, God will guide me
as His word I read.

Not sure what to expect,
don’t yet know the direction
but, God will steer me
if I give Him my attention.

I don’t know what I will do,
so, I’m praying as I go . . .
for, I know God has a plan
and the way He will show.

I’m starting a New Year,
just like the one before . . .
trusting God with the future
whatever may be in store!

Take My Life Lord ~

Take my life Lord,
mold and change it
so into Your hands
I’ll be able to fit.

Do what only,

so I may be bound

Take my heart Lord,
wash it sparkling clean
so Your image in me

Let Your light glow,
from deep inside
so other may know
together we abide.

Take my life Lord,
and my heart too
make them reflect
my love for You!

Put On the New Man ~

Lord, You offered me this new man,
and asked me to put him on . . .
You challenged me to grow in him
and be willing to be Spirit drawn.

You told me my life was worthless,
and my heart was as dry as dust
how my mind was full of darkness
overflowing with greed and lust.

You asked me to give to You,
the worldly joys in my possession
You told me in return for them
You’d forgive me my transgression.

You made me open up my eyes,
to the useless things I do
showing me they are fruitless
when not being done for You.

You revealed to me my pain,
was from the emptiness inside
and why this old and new man . . .
can’t live happily side by side.

Lord, You asked me to make a choice,
a heart dark for one full of light . . .
so I chose to put on the new man
and to give the old one a holy fight!

~~~~~~~~~

Ephesians 4:24

“And that ye
put on the new man,

which after God

may the fruit of my lips
to You thanksgiving bring!

Down In The Valley ~

Lord, You have me in this valley,
for reason that are unknown . . .
but, I know deep in my heart
I am not down here all alone.

For, I know You are with me,
every step of the way . . .
and I know deep in my soul
there will come a better day.

Lord, I don’t know how long,
in this valley I will be . . .
but, I am prepared to stay
as long as Your here with me.

For, You have always promised,
from me You would never leave
and I know deep in my spirit
these words I now must believe.

Lord, I thank You for this valley,
though it has me feeling low
but, I know I am down here . . .
so my faith in You can grow!

Set Apart For Jesus ~

Set apart because,
He first loved us . . .
are those who have
in God faith and trust.

A life separated,
from worldly ways
devoted to Jesus
for all our days.

His Spirit within us,
now with Him we abide
no longer is there
an emptiness inside.

A life to God submitted,
holy and consecrated
now understand why
they were even created.

Set apart all because,
we were first loved . . .
now we are the children
of the One who’s Beloved!

~~~~~~~~

1 John 4:19

We love him,

A fresh clean start,
new beginnings too
not just for today . . .
but, all year through.

Putting behind the past,
pressing into the goal
loving God with all . . .
your heart, mind and soul.

New beginnings,
a fresh new clean start
when Jesus becomes
the beat in your heart.

Letting Him change you,
from the inside out
pushing back your fears
giving Him your doubt.

A fresh clean start,
is waiting for you . . .
oh, the mighty things
in you God can do!

The Long Road To Humility ~

It’s a long road,
this one of humility
it takes quite a time . . .
to see it visually.

It’s an uphill climb,
getting rid of pride
it takes quite awhile . . .
to train a meek stride

It’s a long pathway,
to take on your ego
it takes quite a fight . . .
to finally let it go.

It’s a slippery slope,
on the way to meekness
it takes quite a spell . . .
to admit your weakness.

On the road to meekness,
on our pride we’ll stumble
but God will give to us . . .
the grace to be humble!

~~~~~~~~

1 Peter 5:5

Likewise, ye younger, submit yourselves
unto the elder. Yea, all of you be subject
one to another, and be clothed with humility:
for God resisteth the proud,
and giveth grace to the humble.

Pray As We Wait ~

As life’s storms,
we come upon
as more troubles
they bring on.

We need to pray,
as we sit and wait . . .
with forbearance
until they abate.

When life’s storms,
keep coming around
causing our worries
to teem and abound.

We need to hold fast,
to our future hope
as we sit and wait . . .
to help us to cope.

When life’s storms,
come at us straight
we’ll need God’s help
to sit and wait!

~~~~~~~~

Psalm 32:6

For this shall every one
that is godly pray unto
thee in a time when thou

in the floods of great waters
they shall not come nigh unto him.

Getting My Home In Order ~

I’m getting my home in order,
cleaning up all the grime . . .
getting rid of the things
robbing God of my time.

My closet I’ll declutter,
throw out the worthless stuff
toss away my wasteful junk
and all the other useless fluff.

I’m getting my home in order,
clearing out all the rubbish . . .
so that my faith and trust
won’t be weak and sluggish.

I’ll go from room to room,
search until I finally find
all the things that are futile
so I can unbound my mind.

I’m getting my home in order,
my time I’m going to free
so I can spend more of it . . .
thinking about things I can’t see!

We All Need A Helper ~

We all need a helper,
who is always there
one who can assist us
with our daily care.

We need that one person,
to go with us the length
someone who will give us
the power and the strength.

We need their guidance,
on what we should do
we need them to tell us
just how and when to.

We need their words,
of comfort and solace
we need their love
perfect and flawless.

We all need a helper,
so Jesus saw to it . . .
for He gave to each of us
the comfort of His Spirit!

And I will pray the Father,

neither knoweth him:
but ye know him; for he dwelleth
with you, and shall be in you.

This year my heart,
calmness will savor
for I know and believe
Jesus is my Savior.

instead I’m going to be
with God at rest.

will be at perfect peace
for each day onto Jesus
all my worries I’ll release!

The Faces of Grace ~

There are many faces,
to God’s grace . . .

we need to embrace.

For everlasting peace,
grace will impart
right into the flesh

Grace provides training,
we need to consider
for it’s the God’s Truth
and Life transmitter.

For eternal hope,
grace will convey
by showing us the things
that will lead us astray.

There are many sides,
to the face of grace . . .
and we need them all
if we are to win the race!

we all want

That is why,

we all need God . . .

Hard To Focus ~

At times it’s hard to focus,
on what God has to say . . .
with all the distractions
disrupting me every day.

I open up my Bible,
but, the pages seem to dull
and though I see the words
they don’t sink into my skull.

At times it’s hard to focus,
on things that really matter
with all the interruptions
my thoughts begin to scatter.

My mind begins to wander,
making it hard to see
the Way, Truth and the Life
that is right in front of me.

At times it’s hard to focus,
so today I will pray . . .
Lord, keep my heart fixed
and my mind on You stayed!

~~~~~~~~~~

Psalm 57:7

“My heart is fixed,
O God, my heart is fixed:

It’s A Matter Of Life ~

It’s a matter of life,
over one of death
it’s a matter of hope
on ones dying breath.

It’s a heart of flesh,
over one that’s stone
it’s a matter of trust
Jesus our sin atones.

It’s a mind believing,
over one that does not
it’s a matter of control
over our every thought.

It’s living in peace,
over residing with evil
it’s a matter of knowing
the schemes of the devil.

It’s a matter of hope,
over having none . . .
it’s a matter of believing
Jesus is God’s Son!

~~~~~~~~

Romans 8:5-6

For they that are after the flesh
do mind the things of the flesh;
but they that are after the Spirit
the things of the Spirit.

For to be carnally minded is death;
but to be spiritually minded
is life and peace.

Ready, Sober And Alert ~

This year I am going to be,
ready, sober and alert . . .
I’m not going to let anything
my trust in God to divert.

I will be ever watchful,
by keeping both my eyes
for Jesus in the clouds
descending in the skies.

This year I’m going to pray,
for the strength to escape
those who are trying to . . .
my faith in God reshape.

My ears will be listening,
for that trump to sound
so in the air with Jesus
I too will be found.

This year I’m going to be,
mindful of satan’s snare
so until Jesus comes . . .
I’ll remain alert and aware!

~~~~~~~~

1 Thessalonians 4:16-17

For the Lord himself shall descend
from heaven with a shout, with the
voice of the archangel, and with the
trump of God: and the dead in
Christ shall rise first:

Then we which are alive and remain
shall be caught up together with them
in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air:
and so shall we ever be with the Lord.

Luke 21:34-36

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.

For as a snare shall it come on
all them that dwell on the face
of the whole earth.

Watch ye therefore, and pray
always, that ye may be accounted
worthy to escape all these things
that shall come to pass, and to
stand before the Son of man.

then why doesn’t it . . .

If God’s Spirit,

then why don’t we . . .

If Christ is our example,
on how we’re to live
then why aren’t we . . .
more willing to forgive?

If we like Jesus,
are to resemble
then why aren’t we . . .

Turn straight to God,
He’ll give you strength
to go the distance
no matter the length.

When at first you think,
you just can’t do it
and before you start
you just want to quit.

Know that God,
is right there with you
and with His guidance
you’ll know what to do.

When you start to think,
the climb you can’t make
ask God for the power
to do what it takes!

Exodus 3:11

And Moses said unto God,
Who am I, that I should go
unto Pharaoh, and that I
should bring forth the
children of Israel out of Egypt?
