A Living Sacrifice ~

If you want to really find,
God’s good and perfect will
then you must give to Him
your ego, pride and self-will.

You will need to submit,
your heart, mind and soul
over to the Holy Spirit
so He can take control.

Then He will teach you,
all about holy living
and your whole life to God
soon you will start giving.

If you really long to be,
to God truly acceptable
if you no longer want to be
to the world’s ways susceptible.

Then you must present,
the new life He’s given to you
as a holy living sacrifice . . .
in all that you say and do!

~~~~~~~

Romans 12:1-2

“I beseech you therefore, brethren,
by the mercies of God, that ye
present your bodies a living
sacrifice, holy, acceptable
unto God, which is your
reasonable service.

And be not conformed to this world:
but be ye transformed by the
renewing of your mind, that
ye may prove what is that good,
and acceptable, and perfect,
will of God.”

Do Not Love The World ~

Do not love the world,
nor the things in or of it
for, to your soul . . .
there’s no lasting benefit.

For, the world’s full of pride,
promoting fleshly lust
to its godless customs
you mustn’t ever adjust.

Do not become a part,
of the world’s ways
do not on its sinful desires
let your heart set its gaze.

For, if you do you’ll find,
it’s so easy to conform
as the world’s proven to be
satan’s earthly platform.

Do not love the world,
for it is perishing . . .
there is nothing in it
worth you cherishing!

~~~~~~~

1 John 2:15-17

Love not the world,
neither the things
that are in the world.
If any man love the world,
the love of the Father
is not in him.

For all that is in the world,
the lust of the flesh,
and the lust of the eyes,
and the pride of life,
is not of the Father,
but is of the world.

And the world passeth away,
and the lust thereof:
but he that doeth the will
of God abideth for ever.”

Hungry People ~

Hungry people,
are all around
these starved souls
in darkness abound.

In an ungodly world,
that is full of lust
for they don’t think
they’ll return to dust.

Famished souls,
don’t want the truth
their wanton desires
appease and soothe.

There’s a deep ache,
they have inside
and so from God
they choose to hide.

But God knows,
their real hunger
and He will not  . . .
always slumber.

For, He will shake,
every man’s appetite
until each one sees Jesus
as the One True Light!

~~~~~~~~

Philippians 2:10-11

“That at the name of Jesus
every knee should bow,
of things in heaven,
and things in earth,
and things under the earth;

And that every tongue should
confess that Jesus Christ is Lord,
to the glory of God the Father.”

Fear Fighting Faith ~

Fear fighting faith,
wins many a battle
when it’s enacted
anxiety it’ll tackle.

Fear fighting faith,
tells satan to flee
it says greater is He
living inside of me.

Fear fighting faith,
uses Bible verses
before worry
even surfaces.

Fear fighting faith,
claims victory
as soon as it feels
a little jittery.

Fear fighting faith,
is easy for you to do
now that the Holy Spirit
lives inside of you!

Every Spiritual Blessing ~

Each day we are blessed,
with God’s merciful love
blessed to know one day
we’ll be with Him above.

We are blessed to be,
sealed with the Holy Spirit
to be holy and blameless
so eternal life we’ll inherit.

We are blessed to know,
the mystery of His will
to feed upon His Word
to get our daily  fill.

We are blessed to know,
the hope of His calling
so into temptation His power
will keep us from falling

We are blessed with redemption,
when Jesus’ blood we embrace
for the forgiveness of our sins
through the richness of His grace.

Each Day we are blessed,
with every spiritual blessing
in the heavenly places in Christ
so into Him, we’ll keep pressing!

A Critical Spirit ~

A critical spirit,
fights and bickers
you can see it in those
who are nit-pickers.

They’re known to be,
quite quarrelsome
to other’s they are
more than irksome.

A critical spirit,
can be harsh and cruel
their tongues are always
in some kind of duel.

They are selfish,
it’s their way or none
they do not care
who they hurt or shun.

A critical spirit,
can be transformed
when to God’s love
it is conformed!

Walking With the Godless ~

When you walk,
from God’s will away
you’ll be on the road
to spiritual decay.

For, satan will come,
with his distorted views
so your mind he can
confound and confuse.

When you walk,
with the godless
your spiritual life
will become a mess.

For, the ungodly,
give worldly advice
to follow it only leads
to spiritual demise.

When you walk,
with the sinful
you better become
for your soul fearful.

For surely to walk,
with the ungodly
your spiritual life . . .
we become sloppy!

~~~~~

“Blessed is the man that walketh
not in the counsel of the ungodly,
nor standeth in the way of sinners,
nor sitteth in the seat of the scornful.”

Son Rise ~

Lord, open up eyes,
and hearts too
so others may today . . .
come to know You.

Open up their minds,
let Your love sink in
so others may today
be forgiven of their sin.

Open up their ears,
let them really hear
the reason Your Father
even sent You here.

Open up their souls,
to Your eternal grace
so others may today
Your life in theirs embrace.

Father, open up souls,
ears, hearts and eyes
so others may today . . .
see Your glorious Son rise!

The Grace of A Savior ~

God has for us,
an overflowing supply
of mercy and grace
for us to daily apply.

We can put it on,
be it night or day
we just need to ask
for it, when we pray.

Abundant it is,
it will never run out
it’s what being forgiven
is really all about.

God will release it,
as we require
for granting it to us
is His heart’s desire.

For all those in need,
of God’s mercy and favor
all you need is faith . . .
and the grace of a Savior!

~~~~~~~~~

Romans 5:1-2

“Therefore being justified by faith,
we have peace with God through
our Lord Jesus Christ:

By whom also we have access by faith
into this grace wherein we stand,
and rejoice in hope of the glory of God.”

Open Eyes ~

Open eyes,
make believing hearts
spiritual understanding
they will impart.

Open eyes,
observe things clearly
to God’s Word
they are not leery.

Open eyes,
know the facts
they’re not deceived
by satan’s traps.

Open eyes,
do not doubt
they have checked
the truth out.

Open eyes,
don’t need to see
to know Jesus . . .
has set them free!

Jesus is the Way,
He is the only route
to His Father there’s
no other way about.

People may believe,
there’s another direction
but Jesus came to prove
He’s the only connection.

Jesus is the way,
He is the only path
all other roads will lead
to His Father’s wrath.

People may come up with,

His Father’s restitution.

they only way to our Father
is through His begotten Son!

Jesus is the door,
He is the gateway
everyone has access
He is the only way.

Jesus is the entrance,
He is the opening
to the way of truth
He is life everlasting.

Jesus is the door,
He is the bridgeway
to finding peace with God
He is the only doorway.

Jesus is the access,
He is the passageway
to mercy and forgiveness
He is the only entryway.

Jesus is the door,

the only way to salvation!

Jesus is the light of the world,
a lamp unto the way
He is the hope that shines
in our hearts night and day.

to believers or not . . .
His light unmasks the sin

through the darkness it glows
His light is discovering
our wickedness it shows.

His light is illuminating,
it reflects all things hidden
His light is piercing

Who Hindered You ~

Who hindered you,
who got you off the path
who brought you closer
to knowing God’s wrath?

Who stopped you,
who made your heart sway
who lead you from
the straight, narrow way?

Who approached you,
who got you off track
who caused you to turn
on God your very back?

Who made you to stumble,
who caused you to waiver
who persuaded you to think
you don’t need a Savior?

Who was it that wanted you,
out of the faithful race
who said you don’t deserve
God’s mercy, love and grace?

Who is that cleaver,
who is that spiteful . . .
none other but Satan
could be so deceitful!

God Knows My Frame ~

Lord, You know my frame,
each fragile part
you know my soul
you know my heart.

To You I’m transparent,
You look right through me
no matter what I do
I know that You can see.

Lord, You know my stature,
every single detail
You know when I breathe in
You know when I exhale.

You known I’m human,
You know I’m but dust
You know my possessions
will only turn to rust.

Lord, You know my frame,
my sinful condition
it’s only by Your grace
I have redemption!

I Stood ~

I stood,
I knew it was a test
I knew when it was over
I would be blessed.

I hung on,
I did not break down
I knew I had to keep
my heart and mind sound.

I was firm,
I did not move
I knew my faith in God
He wanted me to prove.

I endured,
I did not waiver
I held on tight
to my Lord and Savor.

I persevered,
I did not let go
I knew my trust in God
He needed me to show.

I stood,
I kept on solid ground
I remained steadfast
I did not fall down!

Jesus Died for All ~

Jesus gave Himself for me,
He gave Himself for you
He gave Himself for each
one in the world too.

Jesus died for our sins,
He gave up His life
so we’d be delivered
from its damning strife.

Jesus gave Himself for all,
He gave Himself to set free
He gave Himself to break
on us, satan’s authority.

Jesus became the ransom,
His life was the price
so one day with Him
we could be in paradise.

Jesus gave Himself for you,
He gave Himself for me . . .
so from sin we’d be freed
if we so choose to be!

Masks ~

Some hide behind,
masks of every kind
some wear disguises
if only in their mind.

Some camouflage,
who they truly are
some cover up
life’s many battle scars.

Some keep hidden,
the agony they feel
some their heartache
they want to conceal.

Some pretend to be,
happy when they’re not
some try to obscure
the problems they’ve got.

Some gloss over,
their heart’s insecurities
some try to cloak
their personal disabilities.

But, behind the masks,
from God we can’t hide
for He sees everything
going on, on the inside.

So, take off the disguise,
you are hiding behind
and let God transform . . .
your heart and mind!

God of The Repentant ~

God of the lonely,
God of the rejected
may Your mercy be
in our lives injected.

God of the depressed,
God of the dispirited
give us Your favor
though unwarranted.

God of the guilty,
God of the hopeless
may Your grace
hold us blameless.

God of the repentant,
God of the mournful
may we be for our sins
truly remorseful!
