Tag Archives: The Life ~ Truth ~ Way

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,
and then vanisheth away.

Be A Peacemaker ~

You can be a blessing,
right here and now

and too show others how.

You can have a spirit,

and spread it throughout
your own community.

You can be a blessing,
each and every day

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 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!

Ephesians 4:15

But speaking the truth in love,
may grow up into him in all things,
which is the head, even Christ:

God’s Purpose For Us ~

God’s purpose for us,
is for our eternal good
His plans for us . . .
is to do as He would.

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!

According to the eternal
purpose which he purposed
in Christ Jesus our Lord:

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!

~~~~~~

Ephesians 2:19

Now therefore ye are no more
strangers and foreigners,
but fellow citizens with the saints,
and of the household of God;

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.

As An Green Olive Tree ~

Today I stand and watch,
the world erode around me
but I will remain to God
as green as an olive tree.

For, my roots are established,
His mercy their tapped into
for I believe this world . . .
I am just passing through.

Today I stand and witness,
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!

~~~~~~~~

Psalm 52:8

But I am like a green olive tree

Lord, it is You who keeps,

my heart stays yearning.

It is You who gives,
me hope and trust
it is in Your Word
my soul stays trussed.

Lord, it is You who keeps,
my faith steady
it is for Your return
my mind stays ready.

It is Your eternal love,

it is Your Way and Life
to which I am drawn.

Lord, It is You who keeps,

it is for You I will win
the good and faithful fight!

A Heart For Jesus ~

A heart for Jesus,
is full of joy and love
its treasure aren’t here
but in heaven above.

Its eyes are open,
to the Life, Truth and Way
it doesn’t care what others
about them might say.

A heart for Jesus,
is one invested wholly
to following the Bible
living a life holy.

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!

~~~~~~~~

Matthew 6:20

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

Matthew 13:51-52

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.

Lord, I love You ~

Lord have I told You lately,
just how much I love You . . .
have I expressed my gratitude
for all, for me You do?

Have I sung to You my praise,
for Your mercy and Your grace
have I told you I can’t wait
till I can thank You face to face?

Lord have I stressed to You,
the faith in You I have found
have I said I appreciate You
for keeping my heart sound?

Have I expressed You keep me,
pressing on each new day
have I told You how delighted
You’re my Light, Truth and Way?

Lord if I have neglected,
telling You these things lately
I want to make it clear right now
it’s how I feel about You daily!

Forsaken Cries ~

Lord, I can envision,
the compassion in Your eyes
I can hear You calling . . .
out Your forsaken cries.

I can picture the thorns,
wrapped around Your head
I can see my sin
for which You died and bled.

Lord, I can visualize,
the angry crowd yelling
crucify, crucify Him . . .
amidst tempers swelling.

But, I can only fathom,
Your suffering and agony
as Your love for the world
was displayed at Cavalry.

Lord, I cannot describe,
how You felt that day . . .
but, I know to Your Father
You are the only Way!

~~~~~~~~

Matthew 27:46

And about the ninth hour Jesus
cried with a loud voice, saying,
Eli, Eli, lama sabachthani?
that is to say, My God, my God,
why hast thou forsaken me?

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.

If Today You Would Hear ~

Today if you would hear,
if your ears you’d open
you will hear the truth
be told and spoken.

For God will speak,
right to your heart
closing the chasm
keeping you apart.

Today if you would listen,
you’d will be able to hear
Jesus calling you
to come close and near.

For He wants you to know,
for your sin’s He died
how He is waiting for you
with arms stretched out wide.

Today if you would hear,
what God has to say . . .
you will discover the Truth
to the new Life and Way!

~~~~~~~~

John 8:12

Then spake Jesus again
unto them, saying, I am
the light of the world:
he that followeth me shall
not walk in darkness, but
shall have the light of life.

The Gospel Truth ~

May the Gospel Truth,
remain in you . . .
may you always stay
to what is true.

May no one take,
the Truth from you away
may to false teachings
you opt not to obey.

May the Gospel Truth,
never depart from you
may you keep to the Way
you believe is true.

May no other gospel,
take you off course
may you always discern
from where the source.

May the Gospel truth,
keep you engaged . . .
may to those untrue
you not be enslaved!

~~~~~~~~

Galatians 2:4-5

And that because of false
brethren unawares brought in,
who came in privily to spy out
our liberty which we have in
Christ Jesus, that they might
bring us into bondage:

To whom we gave place by
subjection, no, not for an hour;
that the truth of the gospel
might continue with you.

What Can Man Do To Me ~

What can man do to me,
what of mine can he control
he may take my livelihood
but, never, ever my soul.

He may knock me down,
spit right into my face
but, he can never shame me
out of my faith in grace.

What can man say to me,
what hateful things can he state
he can take away my freedoms
but, never, ever my eternal fate.

He may chase after me,
with a disgust that could kill
but, he can never stop me
from remaining in God’s will.

What can man do to me,
what can he ever, ever say . . .
to make me stop believing
Jesus is the Life, Truth and Way!

Sticky Note to God ~01.18.21~

John 14:6


The Age Of Aggression ~

We are living in,
the age of aggression
a time God’s faithful
are facing rejection.

It’s a era of change,
a time of redirection
to the Life and Truth
a loss of connection.

It’s a movement,
without any reflection
on seeking God’s face
or His protection.

It’s a period of shifting,
from God a secession
a hateful rebellion
full of provocation.

We are living in,
the age of oppression . . .
but, we who have faith
won’t fall into depression!

~~~~~~~~

Job 34:37

For he addeth rebellion
unto his sin, he clappeth
his hands among us,
and multiplieth his
words against God.

God’s Gift Of Life ~

God’s gift of Life,
paving the Way
so for our sins
we not have to pay.

For His Word arrived,
on CHRISTmas morn
when to a virgin
His Son was born.

God’s gift of Life,
the True foundation
our Cornerstone
to eternal salvation.

For God sent His Son,
to love and forgive
so with Him in heaven
we can forever live.

God’s gift of Life,
is ours this day . . .
for the Truth came down
to show us the Way!

The Light of Salvation~

My eyes have seen,
salvation’s Light
they have been given
a new glorious sight.

For once they were closed,
to the Truth and the Way
but now they observe
God’s mercy each day.

My eyes were shown,
Jesus’ Love and Grace
they have seen the light
now the Life they embrace.

For once they were shut,
but now they clearly see
the promise of peace
God has awaiting for me.

My eyes have observed,
the Light of salvation
and now they hold hope
in Christ’s resurrection!
