Hold On Fast ~

Hold on fast,
give up never
from your hope
do not sever.

Don’t let anyone,
take from you
the crown that is
to you due.

Hold on fast,
don’t you release
your grip on
eternal peace.

Don’t let anything,
drag you away
from the truth
do not go astray.

Hold on fast,
don’t you let go
Jesus is coming
before you know!

~~~~~

Revelation 3:11

Behold, I come quickly:
hold that fast which thou
hast, that no man take
thy crown.

Good Morning Quote ~12.24.22~


Candle-Holders ~

Light-bearers,
candle-holders
are those who are
truth beholders.

Bearing witness,
to the Life and Way
shines His Light
both night and day.

Trust-sharers,
faith-builders
are those who are
hope wielders.

Proclaiming peace,
vocalizing their love
let their light radiate
God’s own from above.

Candle-holders,
Light-bearers
are those who are
Jesus sharers!

~~~~~~

Proverbs 20:27

The spirit of man
is the candle of the Lord,
searching all the inward
parts of the belly.

John 1:8

He was not that Light,
but was sent to bear
witness of that Light.

Luke 8:16

No man, when he hath lighted
a candle, covereth it with a vessel,
or putteth it under a bed;
but setteth it on a candlestick,
that they which enter in may
see the light.

I Have Me A Friend ~

I have me a friend,
better than any brother
for I am never to Him
a pest or a bother.

He always makes time,
to be alone with me
He is never to busy
for me to come and see.

He is a friend who will,
give me good advice
He speaks only the truth
and is always concise.

He’ll stop what He’s doing,
come straight to my aid
comfort and reassure me
whenever I am afraid.

My friend is called Jesus,
He can be yours too . . .
for I know He’ll stick . . .
like a brother to you!

~~~~~

Proverbs 17:17

A friend loveth at all times,
and a brother is born for
adversity.

A New Spiritual Sight ~

If the eye is lit,
by the Truth and Light
it will be given . . .
a new spiritual sight.

For the eye reflects,
what’s on the inside
and will mirror Jesus
to all on the outside.

If the eye is enlighten,
to the Life and Way
to the ways of the world
it will not again sway.

For the eye can see,
the cover of darkness . . .
in a world enshrouded
by evil’s blackness.

If the eye is the lamp,
it will shine ever bright
for its body is full . . .
of the One who brings Light!

~~~~~~~~

Matthew 6:22

The light of the body is the eye:
if therefore thine eye be single,
thy whole body shall be full of light.

Jesus Came To Give ~

Jesus came to give,
to all abundant life
to deliver us from
work’s toil and strife.

And so He became,
the Door to the Way
for He saw how some
led His flock astray.

Jesus knew the thieves,
would rob and steal
His sheep from Him
so to destroy and kill.

And so He became,
the Good Shepherd
to settle with the robbers
salvation’s record.

Jesus came to save,
His sheep from the wolves
so they could recognize
the sound of their hooves!

~~~~~~~~

John 10:8-12

All that ever came before me
are thieves and robbers:
but the sheep did not hear them.

I am the door: by me if any man
enter in, he shall be saved,
and shall go in and out,
and find pasture.

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.

I am the good shepherd:
the good shepherd giveth
his life for the sheep.

But he that is an hireling,
and not the shepherd,
whose own the sheep are not,
seeth the wolf coming, and leaveth
the sheep, and fleeth: and the wolf
catcheth them,
and scattereth the sheep.

Matthew 7:15

Beware of false prophets,
which come to you in sheep’s
clothing, but inwardly they
are ravening wolves.

It’s God Way ~

It’s God way,
or the ways of man
it’s the wide road
or the narrow span.

It’s a spiritual life,
or one that’s carnal
it’s a heart of flesh
or one that’s normal.

It’s through our faith,
or through work’s toil
it’s the grace of Jesus
or the things that spoil.

It’s things that are good,
or those that are evil
it’s pursuing righteousness
or following the devil.

It’s God’s way,
for no other one . . .
will lead us to the Life
or the Way to His Son!

~~~~~~~~

Psalm 18:30

As for God, his way is perfect:
the word of the Lord is tried:
he is a buckler to all those
that trust in him.

All Or Nothing ~

It’s all or nothing,
there’s no in-between
to believe in the things
that cannot be seen.

It takes an act of faith,
to step out each day
and follow the Life . . .
of the Truth and the Way.

It’s not about our works,
but all about His grace
and a trust in God’s Word
our souls need to embrace.

It takes a heart of flesh,
one that is contrite
to see past the darkness
into His saving Light.

It’s all or nothing,
a decision we all must make
it’s faith by grace or by works . . .
that’ll decide our eternal fate!

~~~~~~~~

Ephesians 2:8-9

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

Not of works,
lest any man should boast.

Another Helper ~

Another helper,
Jesus gave to us
someone in whom
we can always trust.

One who will indwell,
who will never leave
one on whom we can
fearlessly cleave.

One who will comfort,
when we are worry
one who has promised
our burden He’d carry.

One who will lead us,
to the Truth and Life
one who understands.
all our earthly strife.

Another helper,
to us Jesus guaranteed
someone who for us . . .
would daily intercede!

~~~~~~~~

John 14:16-17

And I will pray the Father,
and he shall give you
another Comforter,
that he may abide with you
for ever;

Even the Spirit of truth;
whom the world cannot receive,
because it seeth him not,
neither knoweth him:
but ye know him; for he
dwelleth with you,
and shall be in you.

~~~~~~~

John 14:26

But the Comforter,
which is the Holy Ghost,
whom the Father will
send in my name, he shall
teach you all things,
and bring all things to your
remembrance, whatsoever
I have said unto you.

Having Spiritual Sight ~

There’s nothing quite like,
having spiritual sight . . .
seeing everything through
the Truth and the Light.

For it gives you a vision,
edifying and elating
of the beauty God has
for His saints awaiting.

There’s nothing more clear,
than an eye that can see
how salvation comes Lord
by believing in Thee.

For it looks far beyond,
the troubles of the day
by following after
the Truth and the Way.

There’s nothing quite like,
having spiritual sight . . .
for it inspires us to stay
in the faithful fight!

John 14:6


The Road Into Heaven ~

The road into heaven,
isn’t on a street of clover
it’s full of dips and ditches
large bumps to get over.

It’s chuck-full of potholes,
to maneuver through
gaps and depressions
with lots of pitfalls too.

The road into heaven,
isn’t on a street named easy
it’s full of twists and turns
with curves that are sneaky.

It’s full of detours,
that will slow you down
roadblocks and delays
you’ll have to get around.

The road into heaven,
is on a One Way street
there is no other path . . .
if Jesus you want to meet!

~~~~~~~~

John 14:6

‘Jesus saith unto him,
I am the way,
the truth, and the life:
no man cometh unto
the Father, but by me.”

Behold, This Is God’s Son ~

Behold, this is the Babe
this is the Boy
this is the Son of God
who brings eternal joy.

This is the Redeemer,
this is the Cornerstone
this is the Deliverer
who sits on the throne.

This is the Way,
this is the Bread of Life
this is the Truth
who died for our strife.

This is the Word,
this is the Lamb
this is the Image of God
who is the great I AM.

Behold, this is my Lord,
this is my Savior . . .
this is the One reason
I have God’s favor!

Matthew 17:5

While he yet spake, behold, a bright cloud

out of the cloud, which said,
This is my beloved Son,
in whom I am well pleased;
hear ye him.

Today Is the Day ~

Today is the day,
to make your life count
as the years continue
to rise and mount.

For life is fleeting,
the hours passing away
and now’s the time to seek
the Truth, Life and Way.

Generation have gone by,
soon yours will too
so give it no future thought
what with it you will do.

Rather give your life now,
to Jesus and be saved
and He will resurrect you
right out of the grave.

Life is but a vapor
soon it will fade away
so give your heart to Jesus
right here, right now today!

~~~~~~~~

James 4:14

Whereas ye know not what
shall be on the morrow.
For what is your life?
It is even a vapour,
that appeareth for a little time,

Proverbs 4:14-19



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:

I will sing and give praise.”

Isaiah 26:3

Thou wilt keep him
in perfect peace,
whose mind is stayed
on thee: because he
trusteth in thee.

Gems of Truth ~

The Bible is packed,
with truth filled gems
seen through the eyes
of a righteous lens.

For as we look closely,
to the nuggets of grace
the ways of the world
we’ll no longer embrace.

We will live a life,
to God that is pleasing
godly and holy
as grace keeps increasing.

To these gems of truth,
we’ll not wander away
nor follow the path
leading others astray.

The Bible is full,
of hope filled jewels
leading to salvation . . .
if we follow the rules!

~~~~~~~~

Titus 2:11-13

For the grace of God that bringeth
salvation hath appeared to all men,

Teaching us that, denying ungodliness
and worldly lusts, we should live soberly,
righteously, and godly, in this present world;

Looking for that blessed hope,
and the glorious appearing of
the great God and our
Saviour Jesus Christ;

I speak the truth,
I know it’s true
for God it comes
right from You.

Your Word is inspired,
by Your own Spirit
and so I believe
every word in it.

I speak the truth,
I know it’s right
for Jesus it brings
to Life, Your Light.

You instill in us,
to grow in grace
so Your image
we may embrace.

I speak the truth,
all in love . . .
about my faith
in God above!

God’s purpose for us,
is for our eternal good
His plans for us . . .

For He wants to give,
our life a new meaning
so that on His power
we may start leaning.

God wants us to grow,
our faith each day
so we may follow
the Truth filled Way.

For we cannot do,
without Him anything
unless we know
about Him everything.

God’s purpose for us,
is His will to pursue
His plan is to let Jesus . . .
show us just how to!

Just Passing Through ~

I’m not meant for this world,
I am just passing through
until up in heaven Lord
I come to rest with You.

So before that day comes,
I will keep on keeping on
and to the Truth and Way
I will continue to be drawn.

I am just an outsider,
traveling on planet earth
nothing that it offers me
has to me any real worth.

For, my treasure isn’t here,
nor is my yearning heart
it’s on the day when I’ll . . .
from this place depart.

I’m not meant for this world,
my home is with the saints
where my true citizenship . . .
for me thankfully awaits!

Only One Gospel ~

There is no other Gospel,
than the one of Christ . . .
there is none that comes
with such an enormous price.

For the Gospel of Christ,
is the Life, Truth and Way
no other one for our sins
could ever bear or pay.

There is no other Gospel,
anyone could ever preach
there is none that assures
how heaven we can reach.

For the Gospel of Christ,
is the only true One
for it leads us to salvation
by the grace of God’s Son.

There is but one Gospel,
all others are perversions
only the Gospel of Jesus . . .
is the true and trusted version!

~~~~~~~~

Galatians 1:6-7

I marvel that ye are so
soon removed from him
that called you into the
grace of Christ
unto another gospel:

Which is not another;
but there be some that
trouble you, and would
pervert the gospel of Christ.

mankind’s falling away
but, my faith is grounded
in the Life, Truth and Way.

For, it is by God’s strength,
I’m able to stand steadfast
I don’t care if in this world
I am considered an outcast.

Today, I stand and witness,
the world decay around me
but, I have become for God . . .
as sturdy as an olive tree!

A heart for Jesus,

to following the Bible

Its ears are opened,
to both the old and new
for it does not embrace
or hold a worldly view.

A heart for Jesus,
is a heart trusting
for it has Godly wisdom
and true understanding!

But lay up for yourselves

Jesus saith unto them,
Have ye understood
all these things?
They say unto him, Yea, Lord.

Then said he unto them,
Therefore every scribe which
is instructed unto the kingdom
of heaven is like unto a man
that is an householder,
which bringeth forth out of his
treasure things new and old.
