For Every Beginning ~

For every beginning,
there must be an end
just like a rainbow . . .
must have a bend.

But, He who has begun,
a good work in you
will be there to help
and see you through.

For what He begins,
will not fade away
what He has started
He’ll complete one day.

His love set in motion,
is constant and true
He’ll never cease
taking care of you.

His comfort is steady,
to soothe and to ease
He is always eager
to satisfy and please.

His hope is ceaseless,
forever it goes on
just like a new day . . .
must have a dawn.

His faithfulness persists,
no matter the season
He’ll always forgive you
no matter the reason.

His gentle, kind mercies,
are eternally bound
forever they comfort
they are yours to be found.

His truth sets us free,
from Satan’s deception
and He’ll liberate us all
on the Day of Redemption.

For those who endure,
will be saved to the end
for Jesus has promised
to be our eternal friend.

So, give your life to Jesus,
and you’ll find perfect rest
just like the sun . . .
must set in the west!

Of Good Courage Be ~

Be of good courage,
be glad exceedingly
for God wants to give you
His peace unceasingly.

He wants you to have,
a faith mightily strong
so you can make hope
your eternal song.

Of good courage be,
let your mind be at rest
God knows the cares
with today that you wrest.

He wants you to give Him,
all that is of concern
for His yoke is easy
just as is His burden.

Be of good courage,
rejoice and be joyful
for the One you trust
is loving and faithful

I’m Just Passing Through ~

This world is not my home,
I am just passing through
and I am convinced . . .
not to weaken to its view.

Yet, it’s thrust before me,
whether I like it or not
but, I must not concede
to the lies that are taught.

It seems wherever I go,
I find much opposition
but, I refused to be
dragged into submission.

Often I’m called names,
for not giving my approval
so every day my mind
I keep in constant renewal.

This world is not my home,
Lord, I’m just passing through
and I am determined . . .
to stay on the path to You!

Romans 12:2

“And be not conformed to this world:

Oh, To Know God’s Goodness ~

Oh, to know Your goodness,
Your holiness and grace
to have within my very reach
Your strength to embrace.

Then I shall never doubt,
or fall into dreaded fear
then I shall know what it’s like
to have You always near.

Oh, to understand Your anger,
Your judgments and Your wrath
to seize upon the truth
that leads to Your holy path.

Then I’d mount up on wings,
and like an eagle I’d fly and soar
then I would take off to heaven
and enter thru salvation’s door.

Oh, to find Your perfect rest,
from the weariness deep within
to find Your calm that settles me
when my life is in a tailspin.

Then I shall not be tossed,
by every wave or stormy gust
then I would find my Savior . . .
telling me in Him to always trust!

You Needn’t Be a Magi ~

You needn’t be a Magi,
to follow the CHRISTmas Star . . .
you don’t have to make a trip
or need to come from very far.

You don’t have to bring gifts,

it won’t cost you a thing . . .
other then your penitence.

You needn’t be a shepherd,
to follow the CHRISTmas Star . . .
you don’t have to go anywhere
it will come to where you are.

For, Jesus is the Light shinning,
for all of the world to see . . .
He brings hope to the darkness
with His grace He’ll set you free.

You don’t have to be a Magi,
or a shepherd coming from afar
you can accept the gift of Jesus . . .

When they had heard the king,
they departed; and, lo, the star,

When they saw the star,
they rejoiced with exceeding great joy.

 And when they were come into the house,
they saw the young child with Mary his mother,
and fell down, and worshipped him:
and when they had opened their treasures,
they presented unto him gifts; gold, and
frankincense and myrrh.

determined to submit.

May I have the fortitude,
to journey into what is wise

I Hear You Jesus ~

I hear You Jesus,
Your voice I recognize
I’m aware of the wolves
wearing a sheep’s disguise.

I hear You Jesus,
I listen for Your inflection
I know the tone they use
lacks truth and direction.

I hear You Jesus,
I’m aware of Your teachings
I know the false promises
the others are preaching.

I hear You Jesus,
I am able to distinguish
the strange voices who want
my faith in You, to extinguish.

God of Hill Tops ~

Lord, into this valley,
I don’t want to go . . .
but, I trust and believe
the way down You’ll show.

It looks so very dark,
right now all I can see
are all of the obstacles
staring back up at me.

Lord, look how very low,
this gaping valley appears
it’s filling me with dread
as I look down on my fears.

But, I know that You will,
be my guiding light
and bless me with strength
to make the long flight.

and I’m not going to stop . . .

Autumn Blessings ~

Autumn brings to the soul relief,
as hot Summer days slip to an end
God sent the season for weary hearts
to restore, repair and mend.

Unlike the Autumn trees,
that shed their changing leaves
God sent the season for failing hearts
to adhere, embrace and cleave.

Just as with the Autumn winds,
there comes a refreshing rain
God sent the season for fraying hearts
to increase, grow and gain.

The Autumn sun is slow to climb,
and dips earlier into the night
God sent the season for sleepy hearts
to rise, shine and awake in His light.

God gave to us the Autumn season,
so we could have a respite and rest
for it is the season for our beset souls
to see how much we are truly blessed!

when blind eyes start to see.

They are My faithful servants,
to whom I will uphold
the elect I have chosen
to gather into My fold.

I have poured out My Spirit,
on those who are the meek
for on Me their sights are set
and My will they do seek.

They call me their Lord,
I call them My sheep
they know to follow Me
for their souls I will keep.

Into righteousness I call them,
in My glory they’ll rise and sing
behold all things come to pass
things new to them I will bring!

The thunderbolt of fear,
is frightening and horrifying

It freezes and it seizes,

as it begins to settles in

Fears jolting booming,

until a resounding dread

But, fear can be conquered,

if you take your worries . . .
and lay them in God’s lap!

that is why I gave to you . . .

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.

Today I’ll Sing ~

Today I will sing,
no matter what comes . . .
the strings of my heart
I’m still going to strum.

If there are blue skies,
I will kick up my heels
if there be clouds
my joy they wont steal.

Today I am singing,
hallelujah and hooray
regardless of whatever
may come my way.

If there be a storm,
I’ll sing over its roar
if there be calm waters
I will sing louder more.

Lord, today I will sing,
nothing can stop me . . .
I will sing of the love
that I have for Thee!

Psalm 57:7

“My heart is fixed,
O God, my heart is fixed:
I will sing and give praise.”

The Seeds Your Are Sowing ~

Some scatter seeds of anxiety,
and harvest nothing but fear
some collect in their memory
the reason for all their tears.

Some spread seeds of distrust,
and collect grains of doubt
some gather up their losses
shutting all their blessings out.

Some cast seeds of excess,
and reap in what they sow
some collect worldly pleasures
thinking God will never know.

Some throw seeds of greed,
and collect envy and pride
some lose their hope and faith
when their will with God’s collide.

Some scatter seeds of doubt,
and harvest nothing but fear
but those who mock not God
sow the seeds of repentant tears!

Galatians 6:7

“Be not deceived;
God is not mocked: for

whatsoever a man soweth,
that shall he also reap.”

The Mind of Jesus ~

Oh, to have the heart of Christ,
to truly love one and all . . .
to forgive those who stumble
and lift up the ones who fall.

Then I’d have the mind of Jesus,
I’d see others deepest need
I’d minister to their lost souls
and to a faith in Him I’d lead.

Oh, to have the life of Christ,
to see all in His saving light
to heal the contrite heart
and give to all eternal sight.

Then I’d have the mind of Jesus,
I’d take His Word across the land
I’d lead the lost to His Kingdom
deliver the unsaved into His hand.

Oh, to have the heart of Christ,
beating deep inside me . . .
would be to  think just like Jesus
oh, how wonderful that would be!
