POEMS . . . B
Back Door, The
Don’t let Satan creep in, your back door,
You surely don’t want, what he has in store!
He will lie, he will tempt, he will deceive,
We must not ever, his sly tricks, receive!
You must always, keep your back door shut tight,
Stay close to Jesus, and walk in His Light!
The devil will tempt you, from Jesus to stray,
Don’t even give Satan, the time of day!
Be on guard, for the old devil is sly,
We must always, on Christ Jesus rely.
Pure Jesus and evil Satan, fight for our soul,
The choice is ours; who will we give control?
If you open your back door, even a crack,
It’s as tho’ to Jesus, you turn your back!
Don’t give in to Satan, don’t listen to his lies,
Give him an inch, and many miles he flies.
Opening your back door, to let Satan in,
“Tis disobedience to Christ, ‘tis sin!
The devil leads only, on ALL wrong paths,
Living without Jesus, leads to God’s wrath!

The backslider’s heart is full of his own ways,
Thinking of God does not enter his days.
Many of His people backslide from Him,
Sinful, corrupt children; to them God is dim.
Iniquity abounds; their love grows cold,
Do they want to be removed from His fold?
When you’ve heard of Christ, and are known of God,
Why think to go back, to evil you trod?
God states: “Now the just shall live by his faith,
But the soul that goes against God ends in death.”
The soul that draws back, God’s not happy with him,
Consider the facts: it’s either sink, or swim.
Did you accept Christ after hearing the Word?
Then you escape the pollution’s of this world.
The knowledge of our Saviour, you did gain,
Why go back to the world’s pow’r that does wane?
Are you one who draws back into perdition?
‘Twill be a sad day, if you God does shun.
“No man having put his hand to the plough,
And looking back, is fit for the Kingdom of God.”
I pray you’re not one who turns against God,
But if you are, turn back now; as you trod.
He wants for you to come out of the cold,
Waits patiently, to bring you back to the fold!

BE . . .
BE converted, that your sins may be gone,
And you no longer will be Satan’s pawn.
BE renewed, in the spirit of your mind,
Evil thoughts and attitudes must be left behind.
BE obedient, in all things to the Lord God,
Each and ev’ry day as life’s road you trod.
BE faithful to God, this He does require,
But too, it should be our deepest desire.
BE courteous, having much compassion,
Love the brethren; no matter what nation!
BE gentle to all, patient, apt to teach,
Striving daily, the lost ones to reach.
BE ready, to tell of the hope that’s within,
With love, meekness, and fear; as you begin!
BE thankful, let God’s peace rule your heart,
For you are God’s child; you are set apart!
BE content, with such things as He’s giv’n you,
He’ll not leave nor forsake; He’s always true!
BE sober, BE vigilant, we have a foe,
Satan will deceive; he’ll cause much sorrow.
BE perfect, BE of one mind; live in peace,
And blessings of God will only increase.
BE Christ’s, as you live; today and always,
And His love will surround you, all your days.

Without Christ Jesus, I’m a nobody,
Headed for, the pits of Hell’s agony.
In God’s fam’ly, I must be a member,
So to Jesus’ pow’r, I must surrender.
I’m a nobody, in the Father’s eyes,
If His precious Son, I reject and deny.
God is in Heav’n, and just Christ has the key,
If Heav’n is your goal, to Christ you must flee.
An utter nobody, without God’s Son,
Without Christ Jesus, Heav’n cannot be won.
There’s only one other, destination,
And that is Hell’s, eternal damnation.
Just Christ Jesus, can make us somebody,
A child of God, with life eternally.
Just Jesus can keep us, from horrid Hell,
Believe my friend, there, you don’t want to dwell.
Only Christ Jesus, can make you God’s child,
Without Him, in God’s eyes, you are defil’d.
To the depths of Hell’s agony, you’ll go,
Where you’ll experience, eternal sorrow.
You can change, from nobody to somebody,
Change from horrid Hell, to life eternally.
You can be somebody, in the Father’s eyes,
When you accept Christ, and on Him rely.
Wisdom is to open, your heart’s door wide,
And invite Christ Jesus, there to abide.
You’ll be headed for Heav’n, and be somebody,
An heir of God, who’ll live, eternally.

Beatitudes In Our Life . . . May 2014 Message
If you’re not “poor in spirit,” Hell awaits,
On your own, you’ll not access Heav’n’s gates.
Jesus you need, you must know in your heart,
Accept Him my friend, and never depart.
If you don’t mourn for sin, you have God’s wrath,
You are walking on a dark, dang’rous path.
You must instead walk, in God’s glorious Light,
Walking with Jesus, makes all things so bright.
You will not please God, if you are not meek,
Humbly, His love and mercy, you must seek.
Arrogance and pride, must not be your way,
You cannot inherit the Earth this way.
If you don’t hunger and thirst, for God’s Word,
Christ Jesus is not your Master and Lord.
In our spiritual life, we all must grow,
To have God’s blessings, to us always flow.
We must be merciful, this God reveals,
For God’s mercy to us, our soul does heal.
If we show mercy, mercy we shall obtain,
When we “do unto others,” we reap great gain.
Only the pure in heart, will e’er see God,
As on the Earth, the narrow road we trod.
Purity we have, comes from Christ alone,
This in God’s Word, is v’ry clearly shown.
If you argue and fight, you don’t strive for peace,
This wrong way of living, for you must cease.
You must instead, a peacemaker be,
Living each day, with love and humility.
If we are persecuted, for Christ’s Name,
As unbelievers abuse us, trying to shame.
We must remember, we are bless’d indeed,
Our blessings in Heav’n, will always exceed.

Matthew 5:3-12 Blessed are the poor in spirit: for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.  Blessed are they that mourn: for they shall be comforted.  Blessed are the meek: for they shall inherit the earth.  Blessed are they which do hunger and thirst after righteousness: for they shall be filled.  Blessed are the merciful: for they shall obtain mercy.  Blessed are the pure in heart: for they shall see God.  Blessed are the peacemakers: for they shall be called the children of God.  Blessed are they which are persecuted for righteousness' sake: for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.  Blessed are ye, when men shall revile you, and persecute you, and shall say all manner of evil against you falsely, for my sake.  Rejoice, and be exceeding glad: for great is your reward in heaven: for so persecuted they the prophets which were before you. (KJV)

As the beauty of morning flows out of Heav’n,
Lavishly fresh air and sunlight, God has giv’n.
The soft gentle breeze brings on the rain,
So many blessings, from God we attain.
The beauty of our God’s great forgiveness,
Is just one thing that comes from His goodness.
God’s grace is like the rush of a river,
There to aid us, forever and ever!
As the beauty of a wondrous rainbow,
His Promise He’ll keep, He wants you to know!
The dazzling sunset, only He can paint,
He gives joy and peace, to all His saints!
Such silent beauty, of a night so still,
And the far off cry of a whippoorwill.
Frogs in the marsh, to each other call,
God made all these beauties, for one and all!
Oft’ the beauty we seek far off, is near,
God gives happiness, causes us to cheer.
The dewy green grass, an exquisite floor,
And the flowers blooming, at my front door!
The amazing beauty of our Lord’s grace,
Christ filling my heart, ‘til I see His Face!
An awesome Saviour, God truly gave,
If we love and trust Him, He’ll surely save!
By: His servant, Connie Kramer Oct.7,1999 # 563
Beauty is in the eye of the one that sees,
At times ‘tis so wondrous, I fall to my knees.
As I survey all the wonders God has made,
I stand in awe, for the beauty ne’er does fade.
Beauty of man comes from within the heart,
Outward beauty, as we age, will soon depart.
Beauty seen, is in part, in him who sees,
The best of beauty, from our eyes does flee.
Natural beauty is truth and honesty,
And God’s Creative work, all in harmony.
Beauty, like truth, is always best when plain,
True beauty greatens, but false, there’s no gain.
Beauty is true love, that comes from within,
You can’t be what you’re not; no need begin!
Beauty is justice and integrity,
True beauty simply can’t be, hypocrisy!
When I think of beauty, I think of my Lord,
And for all He’s done; He should be adored!
Jesus is true beauty, without and within,
Without Jesus, I’d be condemned for my sin!

BEAUTY OF CREATION
Bright and beautiful is the sunset’s rays,
Shadows lengthen, bringing a close to the day.
The sky is God’s canvas, for the sunset,
The Master Artist, portrays all so perfect!
Stars hid by the day, now the night reveals,
God’s handiwork has enormous appeal.
Creation’s beauty is an e’er present show,
As majestic mountain tops, cover’d with snow.
His beauty is in the grass at my feet,
In sunshine; and a baby’s face so sweet.
In a flower, as its petals open wide,
Revealing God’s faultless beauty inside.
We need not look for beauty far away,
God places it before you, ev’ry day!
He gives us beauty right outside our door,
The Master Artist, holds so much in store!
Many look for God, and say He’s concealed,
But, in all Earth’s beauty, He is revealed!
The heavens come alive, as lightening flames,
While so far away, stars write out His Name!
We need not go far, happiness to find,
Just open our eyes, and stop being blind!
Joy and peace and love; and contentment too,
God wants us to have these, both me and you.
When God created the world, He made a Way,
That we could live in the heights of Heav’n some day.
His Son is the answer, He holds the ‘key’,
To a “mansion” in Heav’n, for eternity.
We can only see the things in this world,
But one day, blissful Heav’n will be unfurl’d.
The beauty of this Earth, cannot compare,
To this awesome Place, God’s children will share.

Approach God’s Throne of Grace, way up there.
Without Jesus, I’m God’s enemy,

Abundant are God’s wondrous blessings.

BECAUSE OF JESUS
Six grand things, no seven, I can name,
Because Christ Jesus, I trust and claim.
Such marvelous blessings, come my way,
From God’s storehouse, ev’ry single day.
God’s love, is the best blessing of all,
There to pick me up, each time I fall.
Hid loving-kindness, is amazing,
Nothing on Earth, can top this blessing!
Christ’s Presence is with me, e’er so near,
Removing my worries, and my fears.
What a grand blessing this is, indeed,
When to His loving will, I do heed.
The Father’s patience with me, ne’er ends,
Because His Holy Son, is my Friend.
The unwise world, simply cannot know,
This superb blessing, that God bestows!
God’s faithfulness, is there all the time,
Day or night, and I can claim as mine.
God will always, be faithful to you,
If only righteousness, you pursue.
The pardon when I sin, is complete,
All my vile, ugly sins, He deletes!
Cast in the sea, of forgetfulness,
The Almighty God, surely does bless!
All our needs are supplied, so wisely,
For He watches o’er us, tenderly!
Body and soul, He blesses each day,
When we love and trust Him, and obey!
That great hope, of life eternally,
That blessing is assigned, O so free!
This hope is a feeling, deep inside,
That knows one day, with Christ we’ll abide!

Are any of these sins, familiar to you?
So many other sins, could be listed too!
Have you “Been there, done that,” as you went your way?
Or are you still “Doing it,” this very day?
The Bible tells us, there’s Heaven and there’s Hell,
And our eternal soul, in one of them shall dwell!
We each have to make a decision, a choice,
Choose Satan and sorrow, or Christ and rejoice!
Have you “Been there, done that,” sins vile and vast?
Do you regret, the wicked ways of your past?
Have you heard Jesus knocking, on your heart’s door?
If you would open, do you know what’s in store?
If you keep on in sin, on that big, wide road,
You will NEVER reach, blissful Heaven’s abode!
If you’ve “Been there, done that,” you CAN change your ways,
The great Light of Jesus, can brighten your days!
To stay with Satan and sin, it’s Hell for you,
The beauty of Heaven, you will NEVER view!
The vile sins of your past, you must cast away,
If you ever want to live, in Heaven some day!
You will be saved, if on Jesus you believe,
Forgiveness of all your sins, you shall receive!
Jesus is the Way, He has Heaven’s only key,
Just Jesus can give you, life eternally!

Before ‘twas a world, ‘twas a Creator,
He’d made a plan, one with much in store.
His Son came, to tell us secret things,
But more important, salvation to bring.
Before ‘twas a sinner, ‘twas One to save,
God sent His pure Lamb, to cleanse sin’s deray.
If you were chosen ‘fore the world began,
His precious Blood will cleanse you; ‘tis God’s plan!
Before there was guilt, ‘twas God’s wondrous grace,
Before the garden; before man’s disgrace.
His grace has always been, God does not change,
But then came sin; and man’s life was derang’d.
Before there was judgment, He’d promised life,
All who’d believe on Christ, ‘twould be no strife.
Eternity in Heav’n; no chance of Hell,
There with our Saviour, forever to dwell.
Before there was Hell, there was Heaven,
Made for redeem’d, forgiv’n folk; ‘twill be giv’n!
God made Hell for Satan and his angels,
It is for he and his, there they shall dwell.

BEFORE AND AFTER . . . about me
Before I knew Jesus, I was lost,
I ne’er, even once, counted the cost!
Life without Him, I sure did not care,
Did all wrong things, and ne’er a prayer!
Anger, bitterness, cursing and lies,
Hatred and wickedness; I can’t deny!
Stubborn, greedy, selfish thru’ and thru’,
Rebellion, envy, SIN,; is this you?
I finally gave in to my Lord,
And starting searching His precious Word.
A change took place in the way I live,
That ‘old’ me left! a new me He did give!
Then, I had remorse, for what I’d been,
Living all those wasted years in sin.
Turning my back on Christ’s wondrous love,
Ne’er thinking of Hell, or Heav’n above.
I thank God for His patience with me,
I’m no longer ‘lost’, but safe and free!
Now I know Jesus as Saviour and Lord,
Rejection is gone; now, He’s adored!
I still do some of those awful things,
Now, I repent, and forgiveness He brings!
Such a caring Saviour; loving and true,
He’s waiting, right now, to hear from you!

Before Jesus, After Jesus
I claim Jesus’ righteousness, as mine,
So that thru’ me, His great Light can shine.
With His power, He made me God’s child,
From now to for e’er, from Hell I’m exiled.
Before Jesus, I was deep in sin,
Sin is how, ev’ry day I’d begin.
Like filthy rags, was my righteousness,
‘Twas no way, that the Father would bless.
Before Jesus, just self was on my mind,
No love for others, I was not kind.
All I could think of, was me, me, me,
And I ne’er thought, of eternity.
But Jesus, my heart and life did change,
Spirit and soul, He did re-arrange.
Of me, I no longer think any more,
Now I want others, to reach Heav’n’s shore.
Jesus righteousness, for me I claim,
And salvation, in His Holy Name.
No longer will it be, me, me, me,
I’m on my way, to life eternally.
Lord Jesus, thru me, let Your Light shine,
Concern for other’s souls, should be mine.
Lord let me please You, and do Your will,
And Lord, with Your love, my being fill.

He was a Man of humility,
He left Heav’n’s glory, for you and me.
Scorned and despised by most men,
Friend, this will never happen again!
He was a Man of great suffering,
He bled and died, salvation to bring.
Died on that Cross, for me, and for you,
He had a special love, deep and true.
He was a Man, absolutely pure,
The perfect Lamb of God; our Saviour.
Just He can cleanse us with His precious Blood,
Kneel at the Cross; experience that Flood!
He is a Man of great dignity,
He’s KING OF KINGS; He’s nobility!
Highest in honor; He’s LORD OF LORDS,

He is a Man of wondrous glory,
The One who holds Heaven’s only ‘key’.

BEING the BEATITUDES
If I’m poor in spirit, bless’d will I be,
The Kingdom of Heav’n, belongs to me.
If I mourn for my sin, I will be bless’d,
God will comfort me, put my soul at rest.
If I am meek, I’ll be bless’d by the Lord,
Any pride, out of my life, must be pour’d.
Bless’d I’ll be, if I hunger for what’s right,
For I’ll be fill’d, with the pow’r of His might.
To all around me, I must show mercy,
Because my Lord, has compassion on me.
I’ll be bless’d if Jesus makes my heart pure,
For I will see God; it’s certain and sure.
If I’m a peacemaker, I’ll be bless’d indeed,
And the Lord’s blessing, I surely do need.
If for Jesus’ sake, people persecute me,
My reward will be great, in eternity.
The Beatitudes make us like our Lord,
We should imitate Him, in willing accord.
We should never go along with the world,
Or God’s blessings to us, won’t be unfurl’d.
To the Lord, we are the salt of the Earth,
We must reach out to others, proving our worth.
Jesus is Light; so we too must be light,
A beacon in darkness, making things bright.

BELIEF IS A MIRACLE . . . Dec.1999 Message
Belief can be a miracle, true,
A miracle, that can happen to you.
It can change your life spectacularly,
Belief gives you life, eternally!
Believing God can erase all sins,
A miracle; that with faith, begins!
We are justified, by Christ’s precious Blood,
‘Not Guilty’ in Heav’n, by this wondrous Flood!
Belief; a miracle, that sanctifies,
By trusting His Word, that never lies!
Set apart to serve our awesome Lord,
Spreading the Gospel set forth in His Word!
Belief; a miracle, that gives a new heart,
A ‘new’ creature, with a brand new start.
Children of God, and with Christ joint heirs,
One day the bliss of Heav’n with God we’ll share.
Believing is a miracle; true,
This miracle can happen to you!
Receiving Jesus makes you God’s child,
From Hell, you will always be exiled!
Salvation is a ‘Gift’ God gives to you,
A miracle; reserved for a ‘few’.
But most, by unbelief walk away,
From the greatest miracle to come our way!

THE BEST THINGS IN LIFE ARE FREE
Some folk slave for riches of this Earth,
Then, with pride, show off all that they’re worth.
They have pow’r and wealth; but are not happy,
For all the best things in life are free.
Contentment can’t be bought; nor can love,
Peace and joy; these come, just from above.
And nearly all strive for happiness,
But instead, many have great sadness.
Can money buy a true loving spouse?
Or a happy home; not a lonely house?
Can your money buy excellent health?
The best things in life, don’t come from wealth!
A true Friend will stand by you always,
Won’t leave, nor forsake, on your bad days.
The true love He shows is always free.
With grace and mercy, for you and me.
There is a saying, and I agree,
“All the best things in this life are free.”
The wondrous blessings our God does give,
Makes this world a better place, as we live.

BETTER DAYS AHEAD
“Better days ahead” some people say,
When troubles come, to shatter their day.
Yet they never go to God in pray’r,
They don’t seem to think, He’s even there.
Can you truly see better days ahead?
Or do you face each new morn’ with dread?
Some much needed help could come to you,
But you must trust Jesus, ever so true.
Better days ahead, you can surely see,
But with God the Father, you must agree.
You must not reject God’s precious Son,
But by accepting Him, God’s grace you’ve won!
Better days can be ahead for you,
With joy and peace, and contentment too.
Christ promises our needs to supply,
But Him, you must not ever deny!
Jesus can give great consolation,
And better still, eternal salvation.
Ev’ry one of your sins, He can erase,
By the pow’r of His amazing grace.
Christ Jesus can give you better days,
But you must be true to Him, and obey.
Better days are ahead for you and me,
Life in Heaven, for eternity!

Better than life, is Thy loving kindness,
My lips shall praise Thee, for You always bless.
For as long as I live, I will bless Thee,
I’ll lift up Thy Name, for eternity.
As I lay on my bed, and meditate,
I remember Thy love and goodness so great.
Thou hast been my help, each time I do pray,
In Thy wings shadow, I’ll praise Thee always.
My soul will follow hard, after Thee,
For Thy wondrous right hand upholdeth me.
Truly God hath attended to my pray’r,
Bless’d be God, for His love, mercy and care.
For the Lord God is my Sun and my Shield,
And unto my Lord, I will totally yield.
No good thing will He withhold from me,
Or anyone who does walk, righteously.
Thou art good, always ready to forgive,
Mercy so plentiful, each day I live.
Lord, there are no other gods like unto Thee,
The Creator God, of eternity.

BEWARE OF SATAN’S CHAIN
Satan really tries to chain your heart,
You must beware, and from him depart.
Satan wants you to reject our Lord,
And each time you do, your heart gets hard.
Your heart gets harder each time you reject,
It’s the devil’s chain, and so grotesque.
His chain around your heart gets so tight,
you must beware, and run from his sight.
To chain your heart is Satan’s desire,
You must beware, for he is a liar.
With Satan, you must never converse,
He’s sly and brilliant, and so perverse.
Satan will cast a chain, ‘round your heart,
You must beware, and from him depart.
He’ll make his way seem the right way to go,
But his way leads only to Hell below.
Satan’s just waiting, your heart to chain,
You must from his temptations refrain.
Turn your heart over to Christ our Lord,
Then, to Satan, your heart is barred!

The Bible Does Not Exaggerate
The Bible, only the Truth does tell,
It speaks of Heav’n, but also of Hell.
Heav’n is a place, of bliss and glory,
While Hell is a place, of agony.
The Bible clearly states, right from wrong,
It tells us to avoid, Satan’s throng.
The eternal God, wants us to know,
To His Home on High, He wants us to go.
Many Promises to us, God makes,
Such as, “I’ll ne’er leave you, nor forsake.”
All God’s Promises, are ours to claim,
Let us claim them, in Christ Jesus’ Name.
When troubles arise, where do you look?
Have you e’er thought of, God’s Holy Book?
All correct answers, can come your way,
If you are wise, you’ll do it today,
The Bible does not, exaggerate,
On the worth of Jesus, O’ so great.
It speaks of His awesome love, so true,
And what He endured, for me and you.
Have you e’er consider’d, what He has done?
This Man, God’s only begotten Son.
He paid a sin debt, He did not owe,
So we’d not have to go, to Hell below.
Exaggeration, God’s Word does not do,
All its pages, are completely true.
What it states about Christ, you must believe.
Or the glory of Heav’n, you’ll not achieve.

Birth of Jesus, The . . . Dec.1996 Message
When Jesus came, all those many years ago,
Born of a virgin, as the prophets did show,
In a humble manger, used as a bed,
‘Twas no room at the inn, so a barn instead.
Just what does His Birth mean, to you and me?
He came down from Heaven. to set us all free.
It only began, with His marvelous Birth,
He died on the cross, for us, here on Earth.
When we think of His Birth, it gives great joy,
He came as our Victor, and sin to destroy.
He brings gladness and happiness, to our hearts,
Just knowing He’s near, and will never depart.
The world can never have, the peace that He brings,
This feeling deep down, makes us happy we live.
We need not be troubled, nor have any fear,
For He came to Earth, to always be near.
His Birth also gives us, that eternal hope,
Power to keep going, when Satan does grope.
He brings salvation, to all who will believe,
Eternity in Heaven, we will achieve.
Do you have room for Jesus? or shut Him out?
Do you want to go to Heaven? He’s the only Route.
He was born in that manger, to save our soul,
Just turn to Jesus, and Heav’n shall be your goal.

Blind and Deaf Sinners . . . June 2011 Message
Adultery is a sin, you must beware,
Friend, it’s wrong, to think it’s just an affair.
God sees the lust in your eyes and your heart,
Immorality is sin, you must depart.
Murder is sin; “But I’ve killed no one” you say,
But God looks at things, a whole diff’rent way.
If you hate your brother, Heav’n you’ll not see,
Far, far from you, is life eternally.
God’s Word clearly tells us, we must not lie,
Or in Hell, we’ll eternally die.
When we tell ‘white lies’, it is strictly wrong,
We must not go along, with Satan’s throng.
Thou shalt not steal, God so clearly tells,
Robbery is a sin, that leads to Hell.
Men start work late, quit early ev’ry day,
And steal from their boss, in so many ways.
Coveting, what to another belongs,
Is for all God’s children, dreadfully wrong.
God’s Word absolutely, forbids man’s greed,
If we are wise, to our Master we’ll heed.
When we disobey, we sin against God,
It’s a path of rebellion, that we trod.
There’s not any other, to whom you can turn,
When you anger the Lord, make His wrath burn.
O’ blind and deaf sinner, you must awake,
Or you will wind up, in Hell’s fiery lake.
Commit your life, to Christ Jesus today,
For you can’t reach Heav’n’s gate, no other way!

Do you truly believe, what God does say?
Millions do not, and go their own way.
God gave us the Bible, as a Guide,
To rightly lead us, where we can reside.
God is a God of Truth, He does not lie,
On Him and His Word, we must rely.
Wisdom can be found, only in His Word,
‘Tis a fool who turns his back, on the Lord.
God loves us, and wants us as His own,
That’s why in the Bible, the Way is shown.
We must be born, into God’s family,
Or we’ll never have life, eternally.
Are you wise, or are you a fool this day?
Are you on the narrow, or the broad way?
Only two roads lead, to eternity,
You choose: Heaven’s bliss, or Hell’s agony.
In the Book of Life, if your name is there,
All with the Lord Jesus, one day we’ll share.
But we must believe God, and Him obey,
Believe the Bible, there’s no other way.

God promises eternal life, way above,
But only if we accept His Son, in love.
He does not say that to Heaven, all shall go,
Just those who trust Jesus, will His blessings flow.
We must be God’s child, so Heaven we can see,
When we accept God’s Plan, Heav’n is our decree.
We must receive Jesus; believe on His Name,
No matter who you are, God’s Plan is the same!
We must be ‘Born Again’, Jesus tells us clear,
Please listen to Jesus, don’t turn a deaf ear.
We must be ‘Born Again’, or Heav’n we’ll not see,
But all too many, from the precious Gospel flee.
‘Born Again’ --- so many cannot understand,
If you trust Jesus, He’ll take you by the hand.
He’ll lead you, into the family of God,
On that narrow road, where those before have trod.
Just open your heart, let Him come inside,
Wondrous joy, and peace; will in your life abide.
God’s blessings unfurl, as you trust and obey,
But we must be His child, there’s NO other way!

To become a child of God, one of His own,
The Bible tells us how, it is clearly shown.
We must receive Jesus, believe on His Name,
Then confess Him to all, feeling no shame.
Faith on your part, is an absolute must,
In God’s only begotten Son, you must trust.
You’re saved by faith, thru’ God’s amazing grace,
God forgives you, all your sin He’ll erase.
If you want to live in Heav’n someday,
Where the City of Gold, is a wondrous display.
You must be born into God’s family,
To live in God’s Home, for eternity.
“Born again,” many cannot comprehend,
Being a child of God, makes you His friend.
This spiritual life comes, just thru’ Christ our Lord,
‘Tis told o’er and o’er, in God’s Holy Word.
Unless you trust Christ, you’re God’s enemy,
And you’ll live in Hell, for eternity.
You must believe Christ died, then rose again,
Simply trusting in Jesus, makes you God’s friend.
Works, sacraments, or vainly repeated pray’r,
In God’s eyes, will not get us anywhere.
Only our faith, and God’s amazing grace,
Will grant us access, to God’s heav’n’ly place.

Bumps, Bruises, Blessings
Do life’s bumps and bruises, plague you each day?
Do trials and temptations, come your way?
Does the devil and his tactics, deceive?
Do you shut your mind, to what you could receive?
Life’s bumps and bruises, are a certainty,
But our Lord has blessings, for you and me.
Do you from Christ, foolishly turn away?
When He could help you, in so many ways.
Life’s bumps and bruises, can make you afraid,
But, if you are wise, you’ll run to Christ for aid.
Christ offers abundant blessings, indeed,
If you will just admit, His help you need.
Thru’ bumps and bruises, Christ will not forsake,
If we walk with Him, blessings we’ll partake.
He doesn’t promise, to make troubles flee,
He does promise His Spirit, eternally.
His blessings, make bumps and bruises look small,
He will always lift us up, when we fall.
His amazing grace, is what we should seek,
Great blessings will be poured out, on the meek.

BURDENS OF LIFE
Burdens of life are heavy on me,
But Jesus can give me victory.
He may not take my trouble away,
But He will walk with me, all the way.
Burdens of life are a common thing,
But Jesus comfort and strength can bring.
He won’t abandon, He’s always near,
Chasing away all our doubts and fear.
Burdens of life come to every one,
But relief can come thru’ God’s own Son.
No matter your trouble, Christ is there,
There to help you, for He truly cares.
The burdens of life, don’t think them strange,
With Jesus on your side, things can change.
Fiery trails could often come your way,
Trust and obey Jesus, come what may.
Burdens of life may be large or small,
We ne’er know what, on us may befall.
Take your trouble to God, in earnest prayer,
Help will arrive, for He does care.
Burdens of life may be testing you,
God may want to see just what you will do.
Stand firm and loyal in your faith in Him,
Trusting Jesus makes burdens less grim.

BUT FOR THE GRACE OF GOD
Think of the homeless, who live on the street,
Most of us turn aside, rarely a word to greet.
Think of the thief, who from others take,
Never seeing their life as a big mistake.
Think of the prostitute, living in sin,
Some at an early age, this life begin.
Think of the drunk, stagg’ring down the road,
With bloodshot eyes, and his body bowed.
Think of the ones, ravaged by horrid war,
And all the misery that is held in store.
Think of the victims of a great earthquake,
And the upheaval this disaster makes.
Think of those filled with prejudice and hate,
Belittling others, seems to be their fate.
Many practice witchcraft and idolatry,
They follow, and worship Satan freely.
Quarrels, rivalry and vast rebellion,
Many around us, these evils won’t shun.
Think of those who are morally unclean,
Bragging ‘bout their deeds, as their egos they preen.
But for the grace of God, this could be I,
Praise be to God, whom we should glorify!
But for the grace of God, things could be worse,
For God has led me to a diff’rent course.

The faith of Noah was sure and strong,
To God, it cast out all his wrong.
God warned him of things not yet seen,
And on the ark, they did safely convene.
By faith, when Abram was called by God,
Left his home, and in a strange land trod.
By faith he and Sara bore a son,
Israel, from these, had now begun.
By faith,David took on an enemy,
Giant Goliath, from whom all did flee.
Armed only with smooth stones and a sling,
Victory to David, God did bring.
By faith, the prophets did speak God’s Word.
Standing firm, in persecution and sword.
In bold obedience, for God they would speak,
God did empower, they were not weak.
We in these times must live the same way,
Without faith, we’ll not please God any day.
We must believe ev’ry Word He states,
For God cannot lie, He’ll tell us straight.
We must accept Christ, His only Son,
Then eternal life has just begun.
He’s the only Way to Heaven’s gate,
Accept Him by faith, before it’s too late.
