Staying In This Boat ~

I’m staying in this boat,
I’m going with the flow
for Jesus will steer me
in the way I should go.

I will not be afraid,
I’ve nothing to fear
for in this boat with me
Jesus too is here.

I’m sticking with this ship,
perish I will not . . .
with Jesus at my side
I’ve no dread of thought.

I’m not going to sink,
my faith will keep me afloat
there’s no way I’ll go down
for Jesus controls this boat.

I’m keeping with this boat,
in it I’m going to stay
for I know the winds and sea
Jesus’ commands will obey!

~~~~~~~~

Matthew 8:23-27

“And when he was entered into a ship,
his disciples followed him.

And, behold, there arose a great tempest
in the sea, insomuch that the ship was
covered with the waves: but he was asleep.

And his disciples came to him, and awoke him,
saying, Lord, save us: we perish.

And he saith unto them, Why are ye fearful,
O ye of little faith? Then he arose, and
rebuked the winds and the sea;
and there was a great calm.

But the men marvelled, saying,
What manner of man is this,
that even the winds and the sea obey him!

Jesus Loves You Too ~

Jesus loves me,
I know this to be true
in fact I also know
He loves you too.

For in His Word,
He tells us why
how for our salvation
He was willing to die.

Jesus loves me,
I have no doubt
for in my life
I didn’t shut Him out.

I heard Him knock,
He came right in
forgave me at once
for all of my sin.

Jesus loves me,
He loves you too
so much that He gave
His life for you!

~~~~~~

John 3:16

“For God so loved the world,
that he gave his only
begotten Son, that whosoever
believeth in him should
not perish, but have
everlasting life.”

A Needful Reminder ~

Sometimes I forget,
why I am so very blessed
why my heart is at ease
and my soul is at rest.

Then I remind myself,
as to why I feel this way
for, my hope is in Jesus
returning soon one day.

Sometimes I overlook,
why my spirit is so settled
why I am not surprised
by the works of the devil.

Then I remind myself,
as to why I am at peace
for until Jesus returns
evil will never cease.

Sometimes I forget,
just why I am so blessed
then I remind myself . . .
it’s on Jesus I do rest!

Just Chillin’ With My Lord ~

Today I am chillin’,
not going to get bothered
won’t let one little thing take
my peace from my Father.

I’m just going to kick back,
and rest here all the day
I’m not going to let anything
take our oneness away.

Today I’m taking it easy,
not going to get uptight
instead I will just soak in
all of Jesus’ calming light.

I’m just going to relax,
in the warmth of His love
and let His grace beam
down on me from above.

Today, I am chillin’
just me and my Lord
and if I fall asleep . . .
it’s not because I’m bored!

“I will both lay me down in peace,
and sleep: for thou, Lord,
only makest me dwell in safety.”

Don’t Be Offended ~

When you find yourself,
for Jesus being mocked
and your faith in God
is always getting knocked.

Don’t be offended,
by what people might do
rather let God’s peace
be what they see in you.

When you find yourself,
endlessly put down
and you’re tormented
for the truth you found.

Don’t be taken back,
by what people say
rather let Jesus help you
to show them the way.

When you’re attacked,
for your Godly belief . . .
don’t let it cause you
one iota of grief!

God Sent Out His Word ~

From the beginning of time,
God sent out His Word
so throughout the universe
by all it’d be heard.

He gave us His Light,
so we could understand
the plan for salvation
He had for all of man.

Our hearts are enlighten,
once His Word enters in
to help us to recognize
the cause of our sin.

As we read and we study,
the Light shines brighter
and our confessions to God
makes our burdens lighter.

From the beginning of time,
God sent out His Light
simply so we’d keep . . .
heaven in our sight!

~~~~~~~~~~

John 1:1

“In the beginning was the Word,
and the Word was with God,
and the Word was God.”

giveth light;
it giveth
understanding
unto the simple.”

Safely Moored And Docked ~

Lord, help me not to have,
my faith rattled or rocked
rather keep me in the truth
safely moored and docked.

Let not me be carried,
by the waves of deceit
rather keep me following
in the steps of Your feet.

Lord, help me not to be,
blown by every Gospel wind
rather keep me grounded
to the truth I have within.

Let not me be confused,
by every ingenious lie
rather keep me anchored
in Your Word until I die.

Lord, help me not to have,
my faith rocked or rattled
help me to keep steadfast . . .
so I don’t become baffled!

~~~~~~~~

Ephesians 4:14-15

“That we henceforth be no more children,
tossed to and fro, and carried about
with every wind of doctrine, by the
sleight of men, and cunning craftiness,
whereby they lie in wait to deceive;

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

Our Future Inheritance ~

There’s an inheritance,
for those who are meek
there’s a promise of peace
to those who God seek.

There’s a lasting promise,
of a future blessing
for those who keep on . . .
into Jesus pressing.

There’s a land of hope,
promised upon adoption
where delightfulness flows
without any disruption.

There’s an abundance,
of calm and tranquility
for those whose attitude
is one of humility.

There’s an inheritance,
of a future destination
a promise of peace . . .
in all of its perfection!

themselves in the abundance

I Shall Not Be Moved ~

Though, my troubles are many,
and surround me night and day
I shall not be moved . . .
for the Lord will make a way.

Though, my burdens are great,
and follow me wherever I go
I shall not be moved . . .
for the Lord’s peace l shall know.

Though, my enemies oppress me,
and try to hold me down
I shall not be moved . . .
for the Lord will keep me sound.

Though, my days are a vapor,
and the end may soon be near
I shall not be moved . . .
for in the Lord I’ve no fear.

Though, my nights are long,
and often filled with dread
I shall not be moved . . .
for on Jesus I rest my head!

Whatever Comes ~

Lord, this new year,
I am trusting You
what comes my way
to bring me through.

If there be sunshine,
I’ll delight in the rays
knowing they’ll lead me
to Your truth and ways.

If there be clouds,
hanging over my head
I’ll not let them fill me
with fear of dread.

If the skies open up,
out of the blue
my anchor will be set
right into You.

Lord this new year,
in You I’m trusting
be there clear skies
or storms gusting!

Hello God ~

Hello God,
are You still there?
I’ve a burden
I need to share.

Greetings God,
did You get my call?
I know I’m not . . .
always on the ball.

Hi God,
am I on hold?
I promise to do
what I am told.

Hey God,
should I ask again?
Maybe I forgot to say
thank you and amen.

Hello God,
are You listening?
Ah, there You are . . .
quietly whispering!

Just Keep Looking Up ~

Things looking a bit dark,
can’t see His light
getting tired of battling
the same old fight?

Spinning in circles,
going round and round
can’t get ahead
feeling more than down?

Can’t catch a break,
no matter what you do
feel as if the whole world
is fighting against you?

Well, you’re not alone,
others feel just like you
but as CHRISTians we know
what we must do . . .

So, look up to the heavens,
put your life in God’s hands
Jesus is your one Friend
who truly understands.

He’s looking out for you,
believe it or not . . .
and if that’s not the truth
then our faith is for naught.

So, don’t stop believing,
don’t you ever give up
for this too shall pass
so, just keep looking up!

Tender-Loving Care ~

When your pain,
is too much to bear
and you need some
tender-loving care.

Know that God,
is there for you
and will your pain
ease and soothe.

When you’re beat,
and broken down
and it’s too hard
to move around.

Know that God,
will strengthen you
and your weariness
He will lessen too.

When you can’t speak,
or open up your eyes
know that God still can . . .
hear and see your cries!

Some Food For Thought ~

The thief comes not to give,
rather to steal and take
so that you will not care
about your eternal fate.

He comes not to save,
but, to destroy and kill
so that you will not care
about knowing God’s will.

The thief comes not to bring,
endless peace and harmony
rather to take you with him
into hell’s perpetual agony.

He comes not to bring,
life abundantly
but rather to eat away
at your faith constantly.

The thief your salvation,
doesn’t give a squat
so I pray this will be . . .
some food for thought!

~~~~

John 10:7, 9-10

“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.”

1 Peter 5:8

“Be sober, be vigilant;
because your adversary the devil,
as a roaring lion, walketh about,
seeking whom he may devour:”

Some Needed Changing ~

This year in my life,
they’ll be some rearranging
and I will let Jesus
do the needed changing.

I am going to give Him,
my heart to reshape
until faith and trust
is its only landscape.

This year in my life,
Jesus will be occupied
working on the things
keeping me preoccupied.

I’m going to give Him,
free access into my head
so nothing will keep me
from being Spirit lead.

This year in my life,
they’ll be some reshaping
but only if I let Jesus . . .
institute the changing!

~~~~~~~~~~

Isaiah 43:19

“Behold, I will do a new thing
now it shall spring forth;
shall ye not know it? I will
even make a way in the
wilderness, and rivers

Before The Clock Strikes Twelve ~

Lord, before the night is over,
before the clock strikes twelve
before this year is gone
and needing to be shelved.

I pray for Your guidance,
into the new year ahead
so I may be assured
through it I’ll be Spirit lead.

Lord, as I put an end,
to the chapters of this year
I just want to thank You
for staying close and near.

So, I pray as the pages,
of another year unfold
You will continue to keep me
in Your everlasting hold.

Lord, before twelve strikes,
forcing a change of hands
I pray into the new year
to follow all Your plans!

~~~~~~~~

Jesus Is The Only One ~

Jesus Your light is,
the only One that can
break through the stone
in the heart of man.

For it can shatter,
the cold and icy frost
and bring the ungodly
to the foot of the cross.

Jesus Your light bursts.
the darkness right apart
taking down the barriers
inside of man’s heart.

For it can obliterate,
the evil and corruption
saving the heart of man
from eternal destruction.

Jesus You alone are . . .
the only One who can
breach into the darkness
of the heart of man!

~~~~~~~~

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.”

and the darkness comprehended it not.”

A Quiet Place ~

Thank You Lord,
for giving me
a place to go
when I’m weary.

A quiet spot,
for my mind
and Your peace
to come in line.

Thank You Lord,
for meeting me
when to You
I run and flee.

A hidden retreat,
for my heart
so more grace
You can impart.

Thank You Lord,
for being there
when I bring You
my daily care!

may you give to Him

may you on Him
your worries release.

may you embrace
His undying grace.

May His favor,
put joy in your heart
may from His ways
you never depart.

May the Lord keep you,
in His loving care . . .
may you make sure
you stay right there!

thee peace.”

Wide Awake ~

When in the morning,
when I am wide awake
I read the Good News . . .
and not listen to the fake.

For when I turn on,
and tune in my television
there’s so much evil
streaming into my vision.

But, when I read my Bible,
the airwaves are full of love
peace, joy and eternal hope
airing to me from above.

The Scriptures broadcasts,
the wonder of God’s goodness
and I don’t need a satellite
to transmit to me His kindness.

When in the morning,
I rise from my warm bed
I shun my television
and read the Good News instead!

Consider the Joy ~

Consider the Joy,
that today brings
consider the gladness
above all other things.

Consider the Hope,
mingling with Love
consider the Glory
that came from above.

Consider the Rest,
the promise of Peace
consider the Praise
never to cease.

Consider the Babe,
the Messiah the King
consider the justice
that He will bring.

Consider the Life,
the Truth and Way
consider these things
every single day!

My Crown of Glory and Honor ~

Lord, You gave me a crown,
of Your glory and honor
to wear on my head
while here on earth I labor.

But, often it slips,
right over my eyes
and I come up short
going for the prize.

As I push it back,
to it is proper place
I dash right back out
to keep going in the race.

But, sometimes I feel,
it only shows me down
and I question if it is
for me the right crown.

Child, I have given you,
My crown of glory to wear
but, keeping it on . . .
is not yours alone to bear.

If you want your crown,
to stay in its correct place
it needs to be secured . . .
by My mercy, love and grace!

~~~~~~

Psalm 8:4-6

“What is man, that thou art mindful of him?
and the son of man, that thou visitest him?

For thou hast made him a little lower than
the angels, and hast crowned him with
glory and honour.

Thou madest him to have dominion
over the works of thy hands; thou
hast put all things under his feet:”

Inside Out ~

 

Lord, You have searched my heart,
You know it inside out
You know where faith runs deep
and the potholes full of doubt.

You have looked into my mind,
You know all of its ups and downs
You know the ruts of fear
and the pockets of peace around.

You have looked into my thoughts,
You know the turbulence
You know the ebbs of calm
and the waves of nervousness.

You have looked into my soul,
You know its fragile stubbornness
You know when it’s softly pliable
and when it’s stiff with faithlessness.

Lord, You have searched my heart,
my mind, thoughts and soul
and I know there’s more . . .
for You to shape and mold!

No one comes to the Father except through me." Also Acts 4:12 "And there is salvation in no one else, for there is no other name under heaven given among men by which we must be saved.” Only Jesus can save! Yet not I, but through Christ in me
