Drop By Drop

Drop by drop
The ink becomes a word.
A listening ear longs to hear.
The voice makes it heard.
Turn a page.
Lift the pen.
The lonesome heart
Longs to hear again.
There is a book
That never ends,
Because when you finish,
You rebegin.
The soul is filled
With peace within.
This what happens
When Christ comes in.
Memorize a proverb.
Reread a psalm.
Find such love
In the book of John.
Drop by drop,
His blood was shed.
His message of love
Was written in red.
Pick up the book.
Turn a page or two.
His dying message
Was written for you.

Penned Through the Pages

Words of a Savior penned through the pages.
Salvation shared throughout the ages.
A King, a bride, a wedding invitation.
A Father, a Son, reconciliation.
Chariots of Fire, a mansion prepared.
Save your oil. None can be spared.
Baby Jesus, baby Moses, twins that fight in the womb.
False imprisonment, wrongful death, finding the empty tomb.
Baby Samsom, baby Samuel, my strength comes from the Lord.
Baby Isaac, baby Ishmael, sin lies at the door.
Do not fear. Don’t be afraid. Angels out of nowhere.
Fight the bear. Fight the giant. David is in despair.
Mother Mary, Harlot Mary, Jesus is Lazarus’ friend.
John the Baptist, John the disciple, a Revelation in the end.

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.

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.

I Follow Despite!

Following Your lead, I follow despite
Any reservations, dread, or fright.
I watch for signs and trust Your word,
Trying to stay true, no matter what I’ve heard,
Trusting that You have heard my prayer,
Knowing that You always love and care.
Unsure if my death is what You ask,
I become afraid of every little task.
Knowing You hate lack of faith,
I try to put on a happy face.
My spirit is unsettled, my mind scattered,
And every bit of my nerves are shattered.
And then in darkness, I feel Your touch,
Reminding me that You love me so much.
The last thing You want is to torture me.
You suffered on a cross to set my pain free.
Help me to trust You even when I’m lost.
Thank You for dying upon my cross.
No one will ever compare to Your sacrifice.
Because of Your death, I have eternal life.

Home Can Only Be Home With Jesus!

Home is where the heart is…
That’s what they say anyway,
But so many people can’t be there
And are trapped so far away.
Stranded in bodies or buildings
So cold to their feelings.
Every day faced with
Such cruel dealings.
Lord, thank you for holding our hearts,
For living there too.
Home can only be home
When we’re finally with you!

Harmless As Doves

Wilt thou be made whole?
That is so easy to answer.
Faith is the cure
But obedience the enhancer,
Obedience that includes
To love one another,
Not to be so violent
Or ugly to others.
We are not to let
Our egos be pleased.
We are to be of good cheer
And share our peace.
