God Has A Time For Everything ~

God has a time,
for everything
and for every one
new season’s He brings.

There’s a time of peace,
and a time of bleakness
a time of spiritual health
and a time of sickness.

There’s a time to rise up,
and a time to regress
a time of fearfulness
and a time to onward press.

There’s a time of hope,
and a time of testing
a time of great faith
and a time of wrestling.

There’s a time to praise,
and a time to mourn
a time to rejoice
and a time to be reborn.

For every thing,
God has a reason
a time for all things
in their due season!

Ecclesiastes 3:1

“To every thing there is a season,
and a time to every purpose
under the heaven:”

Make Straight My Path Lord ~

Make straight my path Lord,
let me not stray
in the Life and the Truth
lead me to the Way.

Make firm my steps Lord,
in You, make them secure
strengthen them for me
with a faith to endure.

Make steady my feet Lord,
keep them from slipping
to the things of the world
keep my soul from falling.

Make my heart right Lord,
on Your way let me dwell
so I may be kept . . .
from the fires of hell.

Make straight my path Lord,
let me be Christ-seeking
for I put my hope and trust
in You, for safekeeping!

Lead me, O Lord,

A Garden Walk ~

Come walk with me Lord,
in the coolness of the day
from Your presence
let me not hide away.

Come stroll with me Lord,
through Your Word garden
to the sound of Your voice
may my ears harken.

Come walk with me Lord,
reveal to me Your will
lead me to the streams
where Living Water’s still.

Come along with me Lord,
tell me all I should know
chide me if You must . . .
so my faith in You may grow.

Come walk with Me Lord,
in the coolness of the day
take my hand in Yours
and guide me in Thy ways!

~~~~~~~~

Genesis 3:8

“And they heard the voice
of the Lord God walking
in the garden in the
cool of the day:

and Adam and his wife hid
themselves from the presence
of the Lord God amongst
the trees of the garden.”

Unashamed and Unafraid ~

Unashamed and unafraid,
tis what I want to be
oh, my sweet Savior
I want to be bold for Thee.

I want to be fearless,
brave and courageous
I want my love for You
to be to all contagious.

Unashamed and unafraid,
to tell the Gospel truth
for You my Lord, I want to be
a dauntless, daring sleuth.

I want to be audacious,
to feel no fear or shame
I want to be bold and daring
whenever I say your name.

Unashamed and unafraid,
Lord, tis all I want to be
my trust and faith in You
is all I want others to see!

~~~~~~~~~~~

Romans 1:16-17

“For I am not ashamed
of the gospel of Christ:
for it is the power of God
unto salvation to every one
that believeth;
to the Jew first,
and also to the Greek.

For therein is the
righteousness of God
revealed from faith to faith:
as it is written,
The just shall live by faith.”

The Heart that Cries ~

The heart cries,
from deep within
with the tears of joy
from the shame of sin.

It knows to God,
it deserves nothing
but, has found now
He is its everything.

The heart weeps,
deep from the soul
with tears of joy
God now consoles.

It recognizes,
the need for God’s favor
sees His mercy through
the grace of a Savior.

For, the heart mournful,
over its sins
is the heart that  . . .
Jesus truly wins!

~~~~

2 Corinthians 7:10

“For godly sorrow
worketh repentance
to salvation
not to be repented of:
but the sorrow of the
world worketh death.

Tweet This ~

I’ve a message,
that I’ll be texting
to all my friends
my faith I’ll be flexing.

I will make it quick,
maybe just tweet it
I know the words
in the criteria will fit.

I will make it fast,
just a few characters
my message will meet
all the parameters.

It won’t take too long,
to tweet or text if off
some will understand it
other’s may just scoff.

It’s really quite simple,
this message I will send
Jesus loves you
and died to be your friend!

I Came Into This World A Sinner ~

I came into the world,
with not one single thing
and when I go to see Jesus
there’s nothing I can bring.

For, my treasures on earth,
will rust from corruption
but, in heaven they’ve been
everlasting from conception.

I have a lot of stuff,
making my life comfortable
but, they are all to God . . .
worthless and corruptible.

For, God has for me,
eternal life as my treasure
where peace and joy
will flow without measure.

I came into this world,
as a sinner, but I will leave
as someone who in Jesus
has trusted and believed!

~~~~~~~

Matthew 6:19-21

“Lay not up for yourselves
treasures upon earth,
where moth and rust
doth corrupt,
and where thieves break
through and steal:

But lay up for yourselves
treasures in heaven,
where neither moth nor rust
doth corrupt, and where thieves
do not break through nor steal:

For where your treasure is,
there will your heart be also.”

Out of Control ~

In a world,
spinning out of control
I am so glad I gave
Jesus, my heart and soul.

In a world,
filled with so much confusion
I am so very happy
I’ve the Holy Spirit’s infusion.

In a world,
full of panic and chaos
I’m so blessed to have
God, as my peaceful oasis.

In a world,
that is lustful and greedy
I’m so thankful I can bank on
God’s favor, grace and mercy.

In a world,
that will meet a fiery end
I’m so grateful . . .
Jesus, is my eternal Friend!

~~~~~~~

Revelation 20:7-9

“And when the thousand years are expired,
Satan shall be loosed out of his prison,

And shall go out to deceive the nations
which are in the four quarters of the earth,
Gog, and Magog, to gather them together to battle:
the number of whom is as the sand of the sea.

And they went up on the breadth of the earth,
and compassed the camp of the saints about,
and the beloved city:
and fire came down from God
out of heaven, and devoured them.”

Without The Lord’s Strength ~

Without the Lord’s strength,
like ice I would melt
from the frigid hand
in life, I’ve been dealt.

Without the Lord’s strength,
like the sand I would shift
if not for His grace
I’d be in a faithless drift.

Without the Lord’s strength,
like a towel I would fold
if not for His love
I’d be left out in the cold.

Without the Lord’s strength,
like a box I would cave
if not for His power
I’d still be to sin a slave.

Without the Lord’s strength,
like a flower I would fade
if not for His mercy
I’d be alone and afraid.

Without the Lord’s strength,
like a tree I would fall
if not for His forgiveness
I’d be nothing at all.

Without the Lord’s strength,
mercy, power, grace and love
I would be lost . . .
like a hand, missing a glove!

~~~~~~

“He giveth power to the faint;
and to them that have no might
he increaseth strength.”

The World’s Ways ~

The world offers us,
options of every kind
but, I would rather have . . .
God and peace of mind.

The world presents us,
with many ways to have fun
but, I would rather have . . .
God and the gift of His Son

The world acquaints us,
with wicked things to do
but, I would rather have . . .
God and a heavenly view.

The world introduces us,
to life in all its fullness
but, I would rather have . . .
God and all His goodness.

The world offers us,
many roads and paths
but, I would rather stay off . . .
those leading to God’s wrath!

~~~~~~~~

Psalm 84:10

“For a day in thy courts
is better than a thousand.
I had rather be a doorkeeper
in the house of my God,
than to dwell in
the tents of wickedness.”

Give Me The Wisdom ~

Oh, Lord give me wisdom,
to know what to say
so others I may guide
to the righteous way.

Help me to redeem,
the time allotted me
to help blinded eyes
Your saving light to see.

Oh, Lord keep me seasoned,
let me not lose my flavor
so I may lead others
to also find their Savior.

Help me to choose,
the words that will bring
answers to their doubt
You created everything.

Oh, Lord give me wisdom,
help me to inform . . .
so others hearts and minds
You can transform!

~~~~~~

Colossians 4:5-6

” Walk in wisdom
toward them
that are without,
redeeming the time.

Let your speech be
always with grace,
seasoned with salt,
that ye may know
how ye ought to answer
every man.”

Everything New ~

Everything new,
everything perfect
sin no longer
our lives to affect.

Everything peaceful,
everything calm
now that Jesus’ blood
is salvation’s balm.

Everything joyful,
everything painless
in a twinkling we’ll stand
before God blameless.

Everything pristine,
everything ideal
at the trumpet sound
all will be surreal.

Everything perfect.
everything new
when Jesus comes
for me and you!

~~~~~~~

1 Corinthians 15.51-52

Behold! I tell you a mystery.
We shall not all sleep,
but we shall all be changed,
in a moment,
in the twinkling of an eye,
at the last trumpet.

For the trumpet will sound,
and the dead will be raised
imperishable, and we
shall be changed.”

Closer Everyday ~

As I witness,
the sun slowly set
I feel so blessed
my Savior to have met.

For, its beauty reveals,
the glory I will see
the day Jesus returns
in the clouds for me.

As the sun unfolds,
its nightly display
the hope I’ve found
its splendor relays.

Though it signals,
the end to another day
eternal joy . . .
it brings closer my way.

As I sit here watching,
the setting of the sun
I feel so blessed
to have found the Son!

~~~~~~~~~

Matthew 24:30

“And then shall appear the sign
of the Son of man in heaven:
and then shall all the tribes
of the earth mourn, and they
shall see the Son of man coming
in the clouds of heaven
with power and great glory.”

When The Thief Comes ~

When the thief comes,
it could be day or night
for all he cares about
is stealing Jesus’ light.

He has up his sleeve,
a life gripping plan
for, he wants to snatch you
right out of God’s hand.

His purpose is clear,
in hell he wants you
for, he’s out to destroy
your heavenly view.

He will discourage you,
he wants you defeated
for, he wants you to feel
you have been cheated.

When the thief comes,
you may be awake or asleep
for, all satan cares about . . .
is stealing Jesus’ sheep!

~~~~~~~~

John 10:10

“The thief cometh not,
but for to steal,
and to kill,
and to destroy:

I am come that they
might have life,
and that they might
have it more abundantly.”

With All Our Heart ~

When we love God,
with all of our heart
from Him we’ll never
what to be apart.

We will pursue Him,
night and day
we will praise Him
when we pray.

When we love God,
with all of our soul
our lives He’ll heal
and make whole.

We will seek Him,
all our living days
we’ll want to know
what are His ways.

When we love God,
with all our mind
His joy and peace
we’ll surely find.

We will trust Him,
for all we need
to His loving will
we’ll start to heed.

When we love God,
with all of our might
for our transgression
we will be contrite.

We will see our need,
for His merciful favor
and receive the grace
of Jesus, our  Savior.

When we mightily love God,
with all our heart and soul
over our minds He will . . .
take complete control!

~~~~~~~~~~

Deuteronomy 6:4-5

” Hear, O Israel:
The Lord our God is one Lord:

And thou shalt love the Lord
thy God with all thine heart,
and with all thy soul,
and with all thy might.”

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,

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!
