Visitors In Your House

A visitor comes to Your house.
Yet another makes two.
They’ve come to fellowship,
To worship You.
Their eyes seek Your people.
Your people extend their hand.
They try to comfort
And teach to understand.
The card is signed
“I’m new to here.”
The pastor reassures,
“You are so dear.”
The children are adored
by all who were blessed.
They show the crafts made.
Oh how cute they’re dressed.
Farewell to our visitors.
Farewell to your souls.
We pray they’ll return,
Or at least be Yours whole.

Speak No Leak

Speak… no leak.
The clues must not be.
All the foes who seek
Will know how to weaken me.
Wink… think shrink.
Be careful not to expose.
One link could make me sink
If they are allowed to know.
Start… smart.
Don’t let the bright shine in.
Cart the heart
And secure the word within.
Roses… hoses.
Things outside can harm.
Moses poses
With all his Godly charm.

Life Steps In

My adventurous life…
Where do I begin?
Just as I get settled,
Life steps in.
There is no getting secure.
You can’t play it safe.
It’s hard to see the whole
When life gets in your face.
Only God can bring us peace.
Only God can protect.
Yet even He will not promise
That He might not object.
Live and learn.
Live and let be.
I can’t help you,
And you can’t help me.

PS. Wow… How negative I can be, but blunt.
God can!

Without, Jesus, There’s No Gain

Words can be so easy to throw around.
People can be so easy to object.
But offended or not, the Bible is clear.
If you are not saved, God will reject.
His Son died on a cross for you.
He bore your guilt and pain.
How could anyone possibly think
That without Jesus, there would be gain?
God did not allow His Son to die for amusement,
He did not permit it just to entertain.
He allowed it to save His lost children
Before His Son comes again.
Please open your heart to Jesus.
He loves you more than you know.
If you will give your soul to Him,
He will never let go.

Cleanse My Unfaithful Pen

Do I still have Your permission?
Do I still have Your blessing?
Do I still have Your gift?
Even after all the misuse?
Even after all the waste?
I am sorry for anything I have ever
Written outside of Your will.
I am so sorry for writing
Anything that would disgrace Your name.
I am sorry for marring Your testimony.
You are so pure, so Holy, so righteous.
I am sorry for not always being
What You ask and expect of me.
I pray for Your mercy and grace.
I pray that You would cleanse me
And my unfaithful pen.
If You will allow me
To share of You,
To share for You,
And to share with You,
I would be honored and blessed.
Not because I am special,
But because Your mercy
Would once again testify
Of what a loving and forgiving God You are.

I Love You, Jesus Christ!

I love You.
I love You with everything in me.
I love making You happy,
And pleasing You always.
I want to praise You,
And serve You all of my days.
Hear my heart’s cry,
“I love You, Jesus Christ!”
I never want to leave You.
Stay by my side.
I love You, my Savior.
My soul is eternally Yours.
I’ve loved You every since
You knocked on my heart’s door.
Thank You for making me
A part of Your life.
Thank You for being
A part of mine.
Walk with me always.
Guide my every steps.
Keep remind me
Why You wept.
