LYING DISGUST

Lying is such a disgust to God.
He doesn’t like us to imply what’s not.
People are misled and told a lie
when life is brief and flying by.
We can’t afford to waste our breath
forsaking words of life for death.
Prophet, priest, and servant alike
are to save and comfort with words of life.
Particularly in God’s house and people,
we are to be Holy, not weak and feeble.
Filth and lies do not belong there.
God will not tolerate nor bear
the insult to His Holy name.
This is not a test, nor a game.
Please give your words and mouth
to the Lord who cares what comes out.
Save the lost and going astray.
You will save yourself along the way.

Deceitfully Hearted

Do we even love God…

is the heart of all.

We can pretend all we want.

He has the final call.

Obedience is the heart of love

to a God who gave the heart.

There is no love inside

when we choose to depart.

We can push the limit

on the heart of God.

He knows if you’re

really His or not.

Search your heart for God.

He is there waiting for you.

He is willing

to make your heart true.

CLINGING

Clinging to a mighty God

generous with mercy and grace,

I seek to know His way.

I long to see His face.

He tells me that I’m His

and that He’ll always care.

I just want to know

wherever I go, He’ll be there.

Mindful of His children,

our Father looks out for us.

The great Judge

knows what is just.

ALL BELONGS TO CHRIST

Everything belongs to Christ.

We are to endure at all times.

We are to give thanks in all,

and give our hearts, bodies, and minds.

Seeking first what is God’s.

Putting others before ourselves.

Discipling our every being

with His divine help.

Honoring the Christ who died

to give us eternal life,

we are to live in peace,

forsaking divisive strife.

Within The Age Cage

Young and happy,

enjoying life.

Not a trace

of any strife!

Isn’t this

what we miss

as we age

within the cage?

Trapped inside

trying to hide,

we actually dare

to share.

Does this make sense

to my friends?

It should.

They would.

WHAT I HAVE SEEN

How in the world do I write what I have seen?

How do I testify, yet beautify the ugly that’s been?

If I tell all of the good and none of the bad,

No one will ever believe the good I’ve had.

Yet if I tell all the bad and not the good,

I and You would be very misunderstood.

Different worlds have different backgrounds,

And even joy has different ways to abound.

You have saved me from so much bad,

Your salvation being what made me glad.

Yet so many have fallen along the way,

Sometimes it seems necessary to say.

How unfair it seems not to recognize

Souls who have had such tragic lives.

Not everyone wants to destroy their world,

But not everyone has the privilege of self-control.

What I have seen I will have to write,

As I wait for You my pen to guide.

May it always be to glorify You

And every word be faithfully true.

In Jesus Name, Amen!

We’re A Country

A country at war,

that’s what we are.

Are we keeping You

near or far?

A country in debt,

that’s what we owe.

Do we invest

or just say no?

A country of filth,

buried in our rights.

Is our cleansing

even in sight?

A country of pride,

we’ve thrown You out.

I don’t want to reject You.

Bring revival about.
