Word Play Salvation

Seashell, seahorse, seashore.
I just don’t want to fight anymore.
Straw hat, straw broom, straw chair.
I kneel and surrender in prayer.
Bookstore, bookshelf, bookends.
I atone and seek to make amends.
Light switch, light bulb, lighthouse.
God amazes and wows.
Word Game, word count, WordPress.
I stray less and less.
Waterway, waterfall, water filter.
I learn to love my brother and sister.
Skyline, skylight, sky view.
I learn the right thing to do.
Buttermilk, butter bean, butter knife.
I have invited Christ into my life.

Your Influence

Your precious love abides. Your Spirit lives inside.
Your presence pleases me. Your comfort eases me.
Your guiding light leads. My obedience heeds.
Your word instructs. My discipline trusts.
Your hymn lifts my voice. I praise by choice.
Your encouragement cheers. Your tenderness endears.
Your mercy secures. Your grace assures.
Your salvation saves. My humility behaves.
Your insight inspires. My rebellion retires.

He Restoreth My Soul

Life can run so far away
with the sanity I need.
My traumatized nerves
begin to plead.
Yet one more thing rushes in
and threatens my cry.
Will my prayer be heard?
Will you pass me by?
“Of course not!”,
You lovingly chide.
“You know that I
am by your side.”
Your strong voice,
Your tender heart,
take me by the hand.
“We are never apart.”
My day washes away
and I become whole.
I am with my God.
He restoreth my soul.

Runaway Slaves

Runaway slaves
with a debt to pay,
that is a good description
of us all today.
Running from a God
who loves us so,
we’re convinced we’re freed
but it just isn’t so.
Sin has become our master.
We’re slaves no matter what.
How much more freeing
to serve a living and loving God.
So Christ comes to plea
and pay the debt we owe.
He makes us family.
He does not let go.
Surrender your account
that has been paid by Christ.
God loves you as His child
and longs to give you eternal life.

NO MORE CHOKING!

Stop this choking me!
I belong to CHRIST!
I serve NO ONE ELSE.
HE was crucified!
For me HE gave HIS blood
to break my chains free.
HE gave me freedom
to live in spiritual liberty!
NO MORE laws! NO MORE demons!
NO MORE distractions!
God loves me as HIS creation,
NOT by my actions.
In love and honor,
I strive to give HIM fruit,
as I strive to live for HIM
in spirit and truth.
