Whatever The Cost ~

Whatever You want Lord,
whatever the cost to me . . .
wherever it is You want
for me to go and be.

That’s where I’ll travel,
that’s the road I’ll take
for You all I possess
I willingly forsake.

Whenever You need me Lord,
wherever the place
whatever time You call me
to sow seeds of grace.

That is when I will leave,
that is when I’ll depart
for You in the harvest
I will gladly take part.

Whenever You want Lord,
whatever the cost . . .
for You I will go
and find those who are lost!

~~~~~~~~~

Philippians 3:8

Yea doubtless,
and I count all things
but loss for the excellency
of the knowledge of Christ
Jesus my Lord: for whom
I have suffered the loss
of all things, and do count
them but dung,
that I may win Christ.”

Sowing and Reaping ~

If we are to plant,
we must also water
and trust the growing
to our heavenly Father.

If we want to reap,
we need to sow
and from doing good
weary we can’t grow.

If we want to shout,
with joy and glee
then seeds of faith
we need to set free.

If we want to gather,
fruit for His vine
we need to be patient
loving and kind.

If we want to reap,
there will be pruning
for God the harvest  . . .
is always fine tuning!

~~~~~~

Galatians 6:9
And let us not be weary
in well doing:
for in due season we shall reap,
if we faint not.

Psalm 126:6
He that goeth forth and weepeth,
bearing precious seed,
shall doubtless
come again with rejoicing,
bringing his sheaves with him.”

James 5:7
Be patient therefore,
brethren, unto the coming
of the Lord. Behold, the
husbandman waiteth for
the precious fruit of the earth,
and hath long patience for it,
until he receive the early
and latter rain.

Sticky Note From God ~07.30.18~


Ripe For the Picking ~

Oh, Lord I can feel,
it’s almost harvest time
and the fields for reaping
are more than prime.

Oh, Lord I can feel,
the coolness of the day
bringing the Good News
that You are on the way.

I can see the crops,
are ripe for the picking
I can hear the clock
speeding up its ticking.

I can see the falling,
of fruit from the True Vine
I can smell the bitterness
of rancid, rotten wine.

Oh, Lord I can feel,
the fields are all but prime
I sense You can return . . .
just about any time!

~~~~~~~

Revelation 14:15

” And another angel came
out of the temple,
crying with a loud voice
to him that sat on the cloud,
Thrust in thy sickle, and reap:
for the time is come for
thee to reap; for the
harvest of the earth is ripe.”

So Many Needs ~

So many needs,
so many cares
causing His sheep
so much despair.

When will they seek,
when will they come
to the One who will
bear every one?

So many problems,
so many concerns
causing His sheep
thoughts to churn.

When will they know,
when will they find
Jesus is waiting
to comfort their mind?

So many doubts,
so many questions
causing His sheep
bouts of depression.

When will they see,
when will they hear
Jesus is wanting
to calm their fear?

So many defeated,
so many gone astray
so many we can lead . . .
back to Jesus today!

~~~~~~~

Isaiah 53:6

“All we like sheep
have gone astray;
we have turned
every one to
his own way;
and the Lord
hath laid on him
the iniquity of us all.”

The Gardener’s Call ~

The Gardener used with permission IBible Verses

As the flower slowly fades,
upon its stately stem
it does not do so . . .
on a lark or whim.

For it has reached the end,
of its real beauty
and pales now from
the call of love and duty.

If it were not willing,
to grow healthy and tall
it would not have heard
the Gardener’s faithful call.

Or have ever known,
the gentleness of His hand
when He toiled and tilled
the weedy, rocky land.

If it did not diminish,
and turn so pasty pale
nor naught a drop of water
came from His able well.

It would never have grown,
so lofty high . . .
to hear the lost and unsaved
wanting, needing cry.

If the flower did not whither,
dry up and go to seed
it would have not understood
the Gardener’s truest need.

For within each lovely bloom,
a thousand more will grow
the Gardener’s plot has room
for all the seeds we sow!

~~~~~~~~~~~

2 Corinthians 9:6

“But this I say, He which soweth sparingly
 shall reap also sparingly; and he which soweth
bountifully shall reap also bountifully.”

Soul Reachers ~

~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann ~ Alberta Harvest Creation Swap ~

You don’t need a megaphone,
to spread the Good News . . .
you don’t need a soap box
for others to hear God’s views.

You don’t need to be a scholar,
or go to theology school
you don’t need a church class room
to teach the Golden Rule.

You don’t need a billboard,
or stand on the street corner
you don’t need a loud-speaker
to be an end-time warner.

You don’t need a million dollars,
or a church’s mega building
you don’t have to spend a cent
to tell about the Kingdom coming.

Everyone can be a witness,
you don’t have to be a preacher
right where you are you can be . . .
for Jesus, a soul reacher!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~

John 4:35

“Say not ye, There are yet four months,
and then cometh harvest? behold,
I say unto you, Lift up your eyes,
and look on the fields;
for they are white already to harvest.”

The Color Of Things to Come ~

Fall leaves free photo on Creationswap by James Cronin

I watch Fall’s colored leaves,
turn from red to golden brown
drifting on Autumn’s breeze
floating, gently to the ground.

They lay in all their splendor,
till rake, piles them knee-high
for eye to see or foot to crush
as they wither away and die.

Fall reminds me of the colors,
of things that are yet to come
Jesus arriving in all His glory
to set up His eternal Kingdom.

His eye will see those waiting,
eagerly for His return
while He crushes under foot
those who gave Him no concern.

As I watch Fall’s colored leaves,
turn from red to golden brown
I pray everyday I can turn . . .
just one sinner’s heart around!

~~~~~~~~~~

James 5:19-20

“Brethren, if any of you do err from
the truth, and one convert him;

“Let him know, that he which converteth the sinner
from the error of his way shall save a soul
from death, and shall hide a multitude of sins.”
