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.

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.

Bearing Uncertainty

So much uncertainty
looms in the air
on what lies ahead,
or what we must bear.
Just around the corner
lies tomorrow,
carrying so many troubles
and too much sorrow.
How are we to know
what each day holds?
We are not You
to know what unfolds.
What we do know
is that You will be there,
eager to take on any burden
that we may bear.
Hold our hearts, Lord,
as You lead us along.
For life will soon be here…
then gone.

Our Long Journey

What a long journey of mercy
You have walked me through.
What a long journey of grace
to have been blessed with You.
So many memories flood in,
I am overwhelmed with words.
You have seen me through
so many misery and hurts.
Yet nothing on my journeying
has compared to learning of You,
and Your wondrous love
shown in everything You do.
Those memories are Yours and mine.
Those treasures are all ours.
You have poured out Your blessings.
I’ve loved bathing in the showers.

I Am Just One

So many times I am discouraged
or defeated by being just one,
but God Himself places value
in being found and what’s to be done.
Lost and wandering away,
He leads me home by His voice.
When He receives me home,
all of heaven helps Him rejoice.
Just one, just little old me
is enough cause to celebrate.
God has saved the perishing
just before it was too late.
Thank you, God, for believing
that I was worth pursuing.
Thank you for thinking
that I was worth rescuing.

The Only Everlasting Love

God gives us special people
in our ordinary lives.
Love that seems endless
unfortunately has to die.
Love that seems imperfect
must expose its flaws.
Love that seems innocent
comes out with the claws.
The only love perfect and true,
and that will never die
is the love that gave His life
to give eternal love on high.
He is the only faithful love
that will never abandon or betray.
He is the only love
that will never go away.
