Knowing And Believing ~

I know and believe,
God loves me . . .
that is why my eyes
are open to see.

See how His mercy,
comes alive each day
see how His Word
will show me the way.

I know and believe,
Jesus lives in me . . .
tis why I trust Him
in what I can’t see.

See how His grace,
in me keeps growing
see how He is worth
my closer knowing.

I know and believe,
God dwells in me . . .
as more of His image
I’m able to see!


1 John 4:16

And we have known and believed
the love that God hath to us.
God is love; and he that dwelleth
in love dwelleth in God, and God in him.

Heavenly Mandates ~

Heavenly mandates,
we all surely need . . .
tis why God gave to us
His Word to daily read.

For He knew we needed,
His divine instructions
on how to get over
temporal obstructions.

Heavenly policies,
are found in the Good Book
for God left them to us
as salvation’s handbook.

For inside the pages,
is where you will find
inspirations from God
for both heart and mind.

Heavenly directives,
are for our own good
for they tell us how
to live as we should.

They gives us the tools,
we must have to fight
those worldly-minded
opposing His light.

Heavenly mandates,
not those political . . .
for we must not follow
what is non-biblical!


2 Timothy 3:16

All scripture is given by
inspiration of God,
and is profitable for doctrine,
for reproof, for correction,
for instruction in righteousness:

Happy Are Those Who Find ~

Happy are those who find,
understanding and wisdom
delighted are they whose Bible
is their life-support system.

For they know God’s Word,
is the light unto their path
as it will lead them away
from His righteous wrath.

Happy are those who know,
all about the Tree of Life
for they will not ever see
the hell of eternal strife.

For they believe God’s Son,
is their Deliverer and Savior
for they found for their sins
in Him grace, mercy and favor.

Happy are those with wisdom,
forever they’ll be delighted . . .
for they have understanding
that with Jesus they are united!


Proverbs 3.13

Happy is the man
that findeth wisdom,
and the man that getteth

and her heart sings . . .

She understands Her Lord,

She trusts Her Lord,
she puts her life in His hand
and her feet willingly go . . .
wherever He has planned.

A Place Of Quiet ~

A place of quiet,
is all I need . . .
for me to open
my Bible and read.

No upheaval,
no stir, no confusion
for me to feel . . .
His Spirit’s infusion.

A tranquil place,
is all I desire
so God’s Word
can in me inspire.

No commotion,
no fury, no uproar
just the Good News
for me to explore.

A place serene,
is all I want to find . . .
so the peace of God
can guard my mind!


Isaiah 26:3

Thou wilt keep him
in perfect peace,

whose mind is
stayed on thee:
because he trusteth

A Buffet of Hope and Trust ~

Every day is a smorgasbord,
a buffet of renewed pardon
a fresh supply of God’s grace
found in His Word garden.

I hunger after what is holy,
to help me through the day
only in the Word can I find
the Light to lead my way.

My appetites are gratified,
from the verses that I read
for they reassure me
Jesus is all I’ll ever need.

I thirst after the Truth,
reading the Word will bring
it satisfied my hunger pangs
it’s like dining with my King.

I need a steady filling,
of God’s mercy and His love
it’s like manna from heaven
coming down from above.

Every day is a smorgasbord,
a buffet of hope and trust  . . .
for the Word is like a banquet
Jesus set up for each of us!

“But he answered and said,
It is written, Man shall not
live by bread alone, but by

Just Pick Up Your Bible ~

When you’re feeling down,
and you need a lift
just pick up your Bible
and give yourself a gift.

For inside you’ll find,
God’s promises galore
for you to find and claim
when His Word you explore.

When you’re feeling anxious,
remember this one thing
since God is on our side
what good will worry bring.

For He is our God of peace,
who showers us from above
the gentleness of His mercy
in the tenderness of His love.

When you’re feeling discouraged,
and deep waters begin to flow
cast your cares upon Him
then watch His blessings grow.

For He is your Rock and Anchor,
He will never let you down
He will turn those deep rivers
into dry and solid ground.

All the assurance you need,
is written in the Good Book
but you’ll have to pick it up
and take for yourself a look!

“Every word of God is pure:
He is a shield unto them
that put their trust in Him.”

Bless Me Lord ~

Bless me Lord,
as I walk Your way
let not the ungodly path
cause my heart to sway.

Let me not lag behind,
but keep my attention
so I may stand strong
when facing contention.

Keep me mediating on,
the truth day and night
so I may be for You
a bright shinning light.

Let me not stagger,
when temptation I meet
but keep the ground solid
beneath my faithful feet.

Bless me Lord,
as a godly life I pursue
keep me delighted
in my thoughts of You!


Psalm 1.1-2

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.

But his delight is in the law
of the Lord; and in his law doth
he meditate day and night.

Be Renewed ~

Each day we need to renew,
in God our faith and trust
as so much bad news on us
everyday they seem to thrust.

We need to read and study,
His life giving Word
so we can rise above
the bad tiding we have heard.

Each day we need to refresh,
in us God’s mercy and grace
so we will have the strength
as more concern’s we face.

We need to pray to God,
without ever once ceasing
so we can maintain our hope
as difficulties keep increasing.

Each day we need to renew,
our hearts and minds . . .
so a right spirit in us
God will be able to find!


Romans 12:2

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.

Create in me a clean heart,
O God; and renew a right
spirit within me.

Shut The Door On Fear ~

When bad news,
I hear about
I shut the door
on fear and doubt.

Instead I open up,
my trusting heart
so peace into it
God can impart.

Whenever I hear,
things not so great
on my mind
I don’t let them grate.

Instead I open up,
my Bible to read
how to trust God
for all that I need.

When bad news,
I get a whiff of
I fix my heart on . . .
God’s trusting love!


Psalm 112:7

He shall not be afraid
of evil tidings:
his heart is fixed,
trusting in the Lord.

None But The Hungry ~

None but the hungry soul,
can be satisfied
none but the thirsty ones
will have peace inside.

None but the longing heart,
can be fulfilled
none but the willful ones
will have faith instilled.

None but the seeking mind,
can be transformed
none but the desiring ones
will to God be reformed.

None but the selfless life,
can be made anew
none but the meek ones
will Jesus come to.

None but the hungry soul,
can see the Light
none but the thirsty heart
will stay in the fight!


Psalm 107:9

For he satisfieth
the longing soul,
and filleth the hungry
soul with goodness.

1 Timothy 6:12

Fight the good fight of faith,
lay hold on eternal life,
whereunto thou art also called,
and hast professed a good
profession before many witnesses.
