POEMS . . . I

“I AM”

“I am the Way” Jesus clearly tells,
Only Christ can save your soul from Hell.
“I am the Truth” Christ Jesus reveals,
Only His Spirit, your soul can seal.

“I am the Life” Jesus plainly states,
Only Christ can lead you to Heaven’s gate.
“I am the Bread of Life” Jesus does say,
Partake of Him, each and ev’ry day.

“I am the Living Water” Jesus cries,
Your spiritual thirst, He won’t deny.
“I am the Light of the World” Christ informs,
Be it day or night, in calm or storms.

Jesus states: “I am the Door of the sheep,”
All God’s children, He will safely keep
“I am the Good Shepherd” is Jesus claim,
No matter our trial, He will remain.

“I am the Vine” is Christ Jesus’ plea,
“For you can do nothing, without Me.”
“I am the resurrection, and Son of God,”
This goes for ALL nations, the world abroad.

If you don’t know Jesus as Saviour today,
To get to Heaven, there’s NO other way!
He is the “I AM” who can save your soul,
Only Christ Jesus has complete control.

Mat. 22:32; 28:18; Ex.3:14; Eph.1:22; 1 Pet.3:22; Heb.1:2)

I AM NEVER ALONE

I am never alone, I have no fear,
For my “Special Friend” is always near!
He will never forsake, nor ever leave,
A promise for ever, we should not grieve.

I am never alone, in day or night,
Jesus is near, taking up my plight.
When I walk thru’ darkness, He lights my way,
For He is my “Light”, for now, and alway.

I am never alone, when trials are great,
He is there to give grace; never to frustrate.
He really does know what we go thru’,
He loves us, He will come to our rescue.

I am never alone, when hate is there,
Hate is all around; hate is ev’ry where!
They hated Him, when He walked the land,
He knows how we feel, He will take our hand!

I am never alone, as I run my race,
He gives me His strength; He give me grace.
There is nothing more that I might ask,
He’s always there, in my every task.

I am never alone, ev’n when I die,
I’m certain He’s near; this I won’t deny.
My angels will carry me to my Home,
To be with God for e’er, ne’er more to roam!

I AM RICH!

Am I poor? how could I ever be?
For Christ Jesus, my KING, takes care of me!
I commit myself to His vast pow’r,
By it I am kept, hour after hour!

Am I worthy? never on my own!
Yet His endless love to me is shown!
I place myself ‘neath His wondrous Flood,
Then I’m worthy, by His precious Blood!

I am rich! with Jesus joint-heir!
He died on the Cross, my sins to bear!
He paid the debt I could not pay,
That I might live in His Home some day!

I am thankful! Jesus I praise!
Glory and honor, to Him I raise!
To my dear Saviour, I’ll shout and sing,
For all the blessings He does bring!

I BELIEVE

In God the Father I do believe,
His Almighty majesty, I perceive.
Ev’rything that was made, He did make,
It came into being when He spake.

I believe in Christ our Lord, God’s Son,
Who was with God ‘fore the world begun.
Conceived by the Holy Ghost on High,
Born of a virgin, I can’t deny.

He suffered more than one man need,
Was crucified, died, and was buried.
Descended to Hades, the place of death,
Arose the third day; for God gave Him breath.

RESURRECTED! He was seen by many,
For over death, He had victory!
OUR LORD IS ALIVE! He is NOT dead!
For this reason, I can look ahead!

Christ ascended back to Heaven’s land,
Now sits on the Throne, at God’s right hand.
He will judge ALL who ever did live,
He’s righteous; the right verdict He’ll give.

I believe one day that I shall dwell,
In beautiful Heaven; NOT in Hell!
I believe He will resurrect me,
To live with Him for eternity!

I CANNOT KNOW

I cannot know what lies ahead,
I do not know if it’s joy or dread.
As this life I travel each new day,
I do know this; He will show the way!

I cannot know ‘bout tomorrow’s path,
I do not know what God’s storehouse hath.
I cannot see beyond this hour,
But I do know this; He will empower!

I cannot know what may befall,
I do not know if trials be big or small.
I cannot see the road, if steep or straight,
But I do know this; I’ll see Heav’n’s gate!

I cannot know what waits in store,
I do not know if tests be less or more.
I cannot see what things will come near,
But I do know this; I have no fear!

I cannot see what all God will give,
But I do know this; I’ll always live!

I cannot know why me He chose,
I do not know, I can’t e’vn suppose.
I cannot see God’s pure perfect mind,
But I do know this; all lost sheep He’ll find.

I do know when Christ comes in the clouds,
With the trump of God; sounding so loud,
My name He will call, so loud and clear,
I’m going to Heav’n; I have no fear.

I Cannot Understand . . . August 2015 Message

I cannot understand, eternity,
Its endlessness, is a mystery.
Life in blissful Heav’n, life without end,
This awesome Truth, I can’t comprehend.

No more death, sorrow, crying or pain,
Just the glory of Heav’n’s, wondrous refrain.
God shall wipe away from our eyes, all tears,
And I can’t comprehend, no fears.

A mystery, that we’ll inherit all things,
I simply can’t comprehend, God’s blessings.
God the Father’s children, are with Christ joint heirs,
The best life on Earth, with this can’t compare.

I won’t ever sin, in eternity,
My new body, like Christ’s, will be sin free.
There’ll be no sin in Heav’n, of any kind,
Life without sin on Earth, you’ll not find.

I can’t comprehend, on gold I’ll walk,
And with my loving Saviour, I will talk.
In this city of pure gold, I will be,
With God and His family, eternally.

Jesus loves me, this I know so well,
For He has paid, to keep me from Hell.
I can’t comprehend, my mansion above,
But He has promised it to me, with His love,

So many things, I can’t understand,
But I know I trust Him, I’ll take His Hand.
I believe His Promises, all so true,
And I do understand, He loves me and you!

I Can’t Comprehend

I can’t comprehend, Your love for me,
And how You set, my burd’ned soul free.
I can’t comprehend, Your amazing grace,
And how You assist, as I run my race.

I can’t comprehend, You made the world,
You spoke; at Your command, things unfurl’d.
I can’t comprehend, Your awesome pow’r,
At Your beck and call, at any hour.

I can’t comprehend, Your forgiveness,
When I repent, You forgive and bless.
My vile sins, You remember no more,
Cast in the sea, won’t e’er come up on shore.

I can’t comprehend, You see my heart,
This urges me, from sin to depart.
I can’t comprehend, You know my thoughts,
I must beware, and think as I ought.

I can’t comprehend, all that You know,
You saw my ev’ry move, as I did grow.
I can’t comprehend, You’re watching me,
Knowing I was Yours, for eternity.

Eternity, I can’t comprehend,
A million years, and still no end!
I can’t comprehend, living in Heav’n,
This wondrous Gift, You’ve so freely giv’n.

I can’t comprehend, that golden street,
Where one day I’ll walk, and my friends meet.
I can’t comprehend, a mansion awaits,
When I walk thru’, those huge pearly gates.

I can’t comprehend, Jesus died for me,
He hung on that cross, in agony.
I can’t comprehend, He loved me so,
He saved me from all, of Hell’s sorrow.

How can You be here? and elsewhere too?
For all believers, this event will view.
I can’t understand, but I do believe,
That none of God’s children, will You leave.

Your shout shall be heard, both far and near,
Being left behind is not a fear.
You will catch us up, and take us away,
This shall be such an amazing day.

That all believers, You shall receive.
You shall take us all, to Heav’n above,

I Can’t Comprehend

Our finite minds cannot comprehend,
How You have no beginning, or no end.
You are the Triune God of eternity,
We cannot understand, this mystery.

I can’t comprehend, how all things You know,
You watch the world, Your eyes go to and fro.
Before a thing begins, You know the end,
Yet on Your awesomeness, we can depend.

I can’t comprehend, Your Almighty pow’r,
‘Tis abundantly with You ev’ry hour.
Nothing is impossible for You,
Yet Your love stays, ever firm and true.

I can’t comprehend, Your wisdom so great,
That most in the world, underestimate.
Far beyond us, is finding out Your ways,
Yet You stoop to assist us, ev’ry day.

Your majestic Presence, I can’t comprehend,
And the fact that You call, true Christians “Friend.”
A mystery, that in me God abides,
And that “forever” there He’ll reside.

That this awesome God, e’vn considers me,
Is truly to me, a great mystery.
Our God’s character, I can’t comprehend,
But I’m eternally grateful, I’m His friend.

I CAN’T DO IT

I can’t do it alone Jesus, help I need,
Why is it so hard for me, Your Word to heed?
You promise to help, yet I get weak and sin,
Worsening my condition, from where I’d been.

The things that I want to do, never get done,
But what I don’t want to do, Satan has won!
This predicament goes on, day after day,
Why can’t I be strong, and go the right way?

I have no will power, to turn from my sin,
My strength turns to weakness; I’m back where I’d been!
The Spirit is with me, I know for a fact,
But others would not know, by the way I act!

I’m filled with the awesome power of God,
Yet why can’t I show it, in ways I do trod?
Without You Lord, there’s nothing I can do,
Why don’t I have faith enough, to turn to You?

I agonize over the way that I am,
But I am Your child, and I know You won’t damn!
I know I should change, start all over anew,
If not, my rewards in Heaven, will be few!

I have trusted Jesus to save my soul,
And I know that Heaven, surely is my goal.
I know at the Judgment, I’ll suffer much loss,
Please help me Jesus, as I kneel at Your cross.

I Can’t Go Along With . . .

It matters not what others think of me,
My concern is the God of eternity.
What I do may not, with others sit just right,
But I must do what is pleasing in His sight.

I can’t go along with, this wicked world,
With each new day, more evil is unfurled.
Each of us must stand, ‘fore the Judge one day,
And I want Him to send me, Heaven’s way!

I can’t go along with, the blasphemy,
Using God’s Name in vain, e’er so freely.
I will instead stand, so close to His Side,
And pray that His Spirit, always reside.

I can’t go along with, stealing and lies,
Those who are oppressed, have painful cries.
I’ll walk close to Him, and trust Him to lead,
And to His wise counsel, I’ll always heed.

I can’t go along with, immorality,
Sexual lust, gives Satan victory.
I must walk with Christ, in His Light instead,
That the agony of hell, I’ll never dread.

I can’t go along with, covetousness,
If I’m greedy and love money, God won’t bless.
I must store up my treasures, way up there,
Storing things here, won’t get me any where.

I must go along with, what God wants for me,
Or I’ll never see, life eternally.
What others think of me; it matters not,
For I’m God’s child, with Christ’s Blood, I was bought.

I can’t imagine, how life will be,
In the heav’nly realm of eternity.
This blissful place, I can’t comprehend,
Where truth and justice, shall have no end.

Unspeakable, is this awesome place,
Where we’ll be privileg’d, to see Your Face.
Your glorious Presence, shall be so near,
We’ll never ever, have any fear.

I can’t imagine, how I will change,
My whole body, You will re-arrange.
No lusting of the flesh, any more,
All sin will be gone, on Heav’n’s shore.

No more hasty, hurtful words will I say,
Just loving, compassionate words, that day.
No more malice, not one evil deed,
No more coveting, no more greed.

I can’t imagine, what love shall flow,
In this grand place, all believers will know.
Your wondrous Home, will be our home too,
Where we will forever be with You.

In this world, we are just sojourners here,
Your welcom’d Coming, is drawing near.
You’ll take us to our mansion on high,
Lord, on You I know, I can rely.

Even tho’ I can’t see Jesus now,

He’ll be Lord of lords, and King of kings,
And He’ll be Ruler, of everything.

I can’t see Him now, but soon I will,
And all my hopes, He’ll abundantly fill.
He has promis’d, life eternally,
Where for e’er I’ll serve Him, faithfully.

I can’t see Him, but I know He’s near,

One with Christ, is the majority,
Tho’ the whole world, be my enemy.

I can’t see Him, but His peace I feel,
The joy and contentment, is so real.
I am so grateful, that He abides,
Of my Saviour, I have such great pride.

I can’t see Him today, but it may be soon,
We know not when, morning, night or noon.
We must keep watch, and live for the Lord,
Disobedience, we can’t afford.

I live for the day, when Christ I shall see,
Then I’ll live with Him, eternally.
Then, every singly day, I’ll see Him,
In our glorious Home, that’s never dim.

I CAN’T SEE YOU

Today I can’t see You with my eyes,
But soon in the clouds, You’ll materialize.
My glad heart shall know You, instantly,
Because it knows You so intimately.

My soul with tremendous joy shall leap,
I’m so grateful that it, You safely keep.
Soon in the clouds, I shall hear You shout,
My ecstatic soul has not any doubt.

High in the clouds, one day You’ll come,
You shall take, all true believers home.
I look forward to that special day,
Let me keep watch, as I go my way.

I can’t see You now, but soon I will,
My heart with abundant joy does fill.
As I ponder, that day You’ll arrive,
Help me Lord, as thru’ this life I strive.

It might be today, or tomorrow,

I CAN’T UNDERSTAND . . . June 2002 Message

I cannot understand, the mystery,
Of this amazing God of eternity.
He had no beginning; nor has a end,
Yet this awesome Being, wants us for a friend!

I can’t understand, how He made the world,
He just simply spoke, and great things unfurl’d.
The light, the darkness, the sun, moon and stars,
The total universe, made by His pow’r!

I can’t understand, how or why He chose me,
Chose me long ago, in past eternity.
Before He made the world, He knew my name,
His child I would be; ‘twas His plan, His aim!

I can’t understand, why Christ had to die,
When I think of His suffering, I want to cry.
What actually happened, by God’s own Hand?
His death is a mystery, I don’t understand!

I can’t understand, about Heav’n above,
I simply can’t understand, God’s vast love.
I cannot picture that street of pure gold,
Nor the City’s beauty, God has foretold!

I can’t understand, ‘bout eternity,
And I can’t comprehend Hell’s agony.
But for certain, this one thing I know,
Just thru’ Christ, will God’s blessings be bestow’d!

I Can’t Understand

Lord, there are times I can’t understand,
The grace that comes from Your loving Hand.
When I think of what a sinner am I,
It seems that my pleas You should deny.

Lord, when I think of my wicked heart,
I can’t understand why You don’t depart.
When I think of all the sins I’ve done,
I realize I’ve sinn’d, ‘gainst God’s own Son.

Lord Jesus, I’m not worthy of Your love,
That You shed on me daily, from above.
And You are always there, You never leave,
Ev’n tho’ my wicked ways, Your Heart does grieve.

Precious Lord, why do You put up with me?
For I am so fill’d, with iniquity.
It seems that You should turn, and run away,
Far away from my hateful, wicked ways.

At times Lord, I can’t understand at all,
Why You pick me up, each time that I fall.
I want to please You, I want to do good,
But it seems I never, do as I should.

I’m truly grateful for Your wondrous love,
And I thank You always for my home above.
I do not deserve You, not ev’n a bit,
But You prove o’er and o’er, Your love won’t quit.

I thank You for all, that You’ve done for me,
I thank You for Your grace, that is so free.
I thank You for forgiveness ev’ry day,
Ev’n when my actions are a bad display.

In the millions of gods this world has known,
I choose You, Jesus, for my very own.
You’re most holy and absolute purity,
God of all ages, God of eternity.

I choose You Jesus, for my very own,
For Your Spirit abides, and I’m never alone.
You promise to never leave nor forsake,
And of Your grand love, I gladly partake.

Most Holy God, sinless, loving and just,
But my trust and obedience is a must.
I choose You Jesus, for You died for me,
I gladly accept You, for eternity.

As Saviour dear Jesus, You do I choose,
With You by my side, I simply can’t lose.
You’ve gone on ahead, my home to prepare,
Where I will forever, Your glory share.

Lord, I’m thankful that You first chose me,
And have given me life eternal so free.
It’s an awesome privilege, You call me “friend,”
And You’ll safely lead to my journey’s end.

I Confess

I confess Him, as the Creator,
Knowing the vast pow’r, He holds in store.
The Universe was made, by His Hands,
All the wide oceans, and all the lands.

I confess Him as Saviour, of mankind,
No other one anywhere, can you find.
Just Jesus, is the Messiah True,
My friend He can be, your Saviour too.

I confess Him as Redeemer, this day,
He paid the price, I could never pay.
I was bought with His precious Blood so pure,
And only with His strength, can I endure.

I confess Him as Lord, of my life,
With His right guidance, I have less strife.
And to Him as Lord, I do submit,
To Him my heart and life, I commit.

I confess Him as Master, always,
I’ll strive to serve Him, all my days.
His humble servant, I want to be,
From this day on, thru’ eternity.

I confess Him, as Almighty King,
Just Jesus, worldly peace can bring.
What a wonderful world, this will be,
O’ev all His enemies, He’ll have vict’ry.

Jesus is the Way, the Truth and Life,
Just He can remove, eternal strife.
Confess Him this day, walk the small road,
Only then can you walk, to Heav’n’s abode.

I COULD HAVE, I SHOULD HAVE . . . July 1998 Message

Those in the grip of the devil’s hand,
Are not headed for God’s Glory Land.
And one future day they’ll moan and yell,
But ‘twill be too late, for they’re in Hell!

Memories they’ll have, and things they’ll say,
Won’t do any good, for God won’t sway!
“I could have, I should have taken heed,
Instead a Godless life I did lead.”

“I could have listened when I heard,
Yet I simply went on my own accord.”
Folks do their own thing, go their own way,
And it’s so sad; they’re the devil’s prey.

“I should have turned to Christ the Lord,
When a loved one brought me His Word.”
They’ll think back with bitter memories,
At all their lost opportunities!

“I could have, I should have gone God’s road,
For now, I would be in His Abode.”
These folks will realize when it’s too late,
Only Christ has the ‘key’ to Heaven’s gate!

“I should have humbly fallen to my knees,
Instead I’ll have eternal misery.
I’ll be tormented with eternal flame,
For I rejected Christ’s Holy Name.”

I Could Run . . . October 2015 Message

I could run, but I can ne’er hide from You,
You see where I am, and know what I do.
You know the thoughts of my mind, ev’ry one,
You know the end of things, ‘fore they’ve begun.

How could I hide anything from Thy sight?
With You the darkest night, is brilliant light.
When I try to hide, myself I deceive,
Your stern correction, is what I’ll receive.

Running from You O Lord, is foolishness,
When this fool runs from You, You will not bless.
What makes me think that I can outsmart You?
My actions are ne’er, hidden from Your view.

Why can’t I learn that I can’t run and hide?
But instead let You always, be my Guide.
Life wouldn’t be as hard, if I’d obey,
Change me from a fool to a wise man this day.

Continued wrong decisions, and wrong roads,
Will ne’er lead me to Heav’n’s blissful abode.
‘Twill simply bring down, God’s vengeful wrath,
As I try to hide, on that big, broad path.

Running from God, is of no use at all,
In the end, we’ll all hear, His judgment call.
God is so good, WHY do we run away?
When all He wants is to bless us each day.

And I finally meet Jesus -- Face to face,
When He asks me if I withstood the test,
Lord, I pray I can say: “I did my best.”

When I gratefully walk that golden road,
Near the “mansion” that awaits in Heav’n’s abode,

When I start to stumble, on Him I call,
For I do need Him each day, and for all.

Whenever I fear anything in my path,
I turn to Jesus, great mercy He hath!
Tho’ Satan shall buffet and cause me to fear,
That’s when I do need Him; and He’s always near!

Whenever I feel that the world is against me,
I turn to Jesus, no greater Friend can there be!
When friends and loved ones seem unfeeling and cold,
That’s when I do need Him, and He’ll never scold.

Whenever my strength does wane, and I get weak,
I turn to Jesus, He brings me back to my peak!
I know I can’t do anything on my own,
That’s when I do need Him, and the way is shown.

Whenever my heavy burdens do overcome,
I turn to Jesus, for I couldn’t get home.
He has never, ever, left nor forsaken me,
When I do need Him, He never does flee.

Whenever I call on Him, no matter what day,
He’s such a blessing, each time that I pray.
He’ll always answer, when on Him I call,
I really do need Him, ALWAYS, lest I should fall!

Than spend one horrid hour, in Hell’s dark agony.
I’d rather be a poor man, and be God’s friend,
Than be a rich man in Hell, where screaming ne’er ends.

I’d rather scrub the floors, in God’s mansion above,
Than enter Hell’s dark abyss, so vacant of love.
I’d rather serve my Master, what e’er His demands,
Than to be locked in Hell, ne’er to see Heaven’s land.

I’d rather cast ev’ry bit of pride away,
That I might be exalted, by my Lord some day.
I’d rather be humble, and enter Heaven’s gate,
Than wind up in Hell, and hear the words: “It’s too late.”

I’d rather walk this day, as Christ does bid me walk,
And have my heart bring forth right words, when I talk.
I’d rather please my Lord, and strive to obey,
Than to be condemned to Hell, for always.

I’d rather trust Jesus, God’s one and only Son,
Than believe Satan, who deceives most ev’ry one.
I’d rather walk by faith, trusting all the way,
Than anger my Lord, when I doubt and disobey.

I’d rather serve my Master, and be at His Feet,
Than be a rich man being served dainties so sweet.
I’d rather be in Heaven with my Lord so true,
Than be locked in Hell, with no pardon or rescue.

I’d Rather . . . March 2012 Message

I’d rather serve my Master, and be at His Feet,
Than be a rich man, being served dainties so sweet.
We all have decisions, in this life to decide,
Will we serve the Lord in Heaven? . . . or in Hell reside?

I’d rather be a poor man, and the Lord believe,
Than be a rich man, and the devil’s lies receive.
Many choices stand before us, as this life we live,
It depends what we choose, on what place the Lord gives.

I’d rather follow Jesus, on the path of light,
Than traipse after Satan, on broad roads black as night.
The Lord will guide us, on those narrow roads so strait,
To keep following Satan, you decide your own fate.

I’d rather love the Lord, and be the Father’s child,
Than to listen to Satan, and from Heaven be exiled.
When you choose the devil, and all his wicked ways,
You’ll spend eternity in Hell, all of your days,

I’d rather obey God, and always do His will,
Than allow Satan, worldly desires to instill.
There are only two places, in eternity,
The Lake of Fire, OR Heaven’s amazing beauty.

I’d rather be a fool, in this world’s evil eyes,
Than be an unbeliever, who my God denies.
Choosing another god, is the wrong way to go,
It will lead just to Hell, and eternal sorrow.

I’d rather go to Heaven, and live with the Lord,
Spending ev’n one hour in Hell, I cannot afford.
Lord, help me always to choose, Your will and right paths,
For I ne’er want to face, the judgment of Your wrath.

In days of quiet, or troubling storms.

My faults are many, and oft’ I do sin,
I pray for strength this great battle to win.
It seems I keep trying to go astray,
May I submit completely to you this day.

So very often Lord, you I do fail,
I want to do well, but Satan prevails.
Lord, let me resist him that he may flee,
I know submission to you is the ‘key’.

Lord, on my own I am utterly weak,
I have no power, and you I must seek.
On your Holy Spirit I must depend,
You, O Lord, I do not want to offend.

I want to please you, help me obey,
Let me love and serve you ev’ry day.
Let me love with actions, not just words,
Grant love, mercy and kindness, like my Lord.

I feel His Presence, each morn when I wake,
I think of His Promise, to ne'er forsake.
When I think of Christ, I think of His love,
That's when I send praises, to Him above.

I feel His nearness, as I start out my day,
Reading His Word, then on my knees to pray.
I thank Him for His guidance, and watch care,
As He watches o'er me, everywhere.

At noon when the sun, is high in the sky,
I know on His Presence, I can rely.
On Christ I can depend, a blessing indeed,
But on His Holy Word, I must pay heed.

Thru' the day, comes many troubles and woes,
But it's then, that His amazing grace flows.
He will ne'er give us, more than we can bear,
His loving Presence, shows us that He cares.

As the sun begins to set, in the west,
I thank Him for help, with my ev'ry test.
His Promise, to ne'er leave me, ne'er forsake,
What better Promise, could He ever make?

I now thank Him, as by my bed I kneel,
Grateful for His Presence, is how I feel.
I'm just not worthy, of His awesome love,
Yet He says I have, a mansion above.

His Presence is near, twenty-four-seven,
The wonderful part, He'll take us to Heav'n.
One day we'll meet Christ Jesus, Face to face,
And we can thank Him again, for His wondrous grace.

No one will thirst, no one will have strife.

Over comers will have robes of righteousness,
Just thru’ Christ do we have this success.
We must have these ‘robes’ to enter Heav’n,
Only thru’ Christ are these garments giv’n.

Does the old devil, tempt you in enticing ways?
Does your faith waver, does doubt and fear plague your days?
Forty days and forty nights, he tempted Me too,
I have promised to make a way, of escape for you.

Do tears of pain and sadness, often come your way?
I too wept many tears of sadness in my days.
I had tears for Jerusalem, and Lazarus too,
I have promised comfort, when weeping comes to you.

Do those that you love and trust, turn and walk away?
Do those you love, love not in return, but betray?
I too felt abandoned, heartsick and lonely too,
I have promised, I’ll never leave or forsake you.

Do you get discouraged, in your service to Me?
Does it seem no one will listen, to your frantic plea?
Most think of worldly things, and are greedy of gain,
I have promised, all done for Me, is never in vain.

Do they persecute you, do you suffer for Me?
Persevere in your faith, and live righteously.
I too was persecuted, I suffered for you,
I have promised, in your trouble, I will rescue.

I HEARD JESUS KNOCK . . . June 2007 Message

So many times, I heard Jesus knock,
But with each visit, His entrance I’d block.
My eyes were open, but I could not see,
I just never thought, ‘bout eternity.

Christ would knock, I’d pretend not to hear,
But I’d feel His Presence, e’er so near.
I had a heart, but it was hard and cold,
My mind was fill’d, with worldly visions untold.

When Jesus would knock, I’d turn away,
Thinking I’d hide, and stay out of His way.
I had ears, but they simply would not hear,
Of an eternal Hell, I had no fear.

But one sweet day, my eyes opened wide,
I then understood, Christ wanted to abide.
I opened the door of my heart that day,
Opened it wide, opened it all the way!

He then gave me a new, tender, soft heart,
And from my old ways, I wanted to depart.
Christ will never have to knock any more,
Wide open to Jesus, is my heart’s door.

Now I have ears that listen so well,
I decided I want no part of Hell.
I have no fear at all, of my destiny,
I know Heav’n will be my Home, eternally.

Lord, I thank You, for not giving up on me,
I praise You Lord, for Your gracious mercy.
I thank You Lord, that You continued to knock,
I’m so grateful, I’m now one of Your flock.

When I repent, and my sins I confess.
I humbly thank You, for cleansing me,
And making me ready, for eternity.

I’ll humbly accept, my mansion one day,
And I thank You, for showing me the way.
Your love, Your mercy, Your amazing grace,
Make it possible, that I’ll see Your Face.

Father, I humbly accept, all You’ve done,
And accept all, in the Name of Your Son.
Such precious blessings, beyond compare,
I thank You that one day, I’ll be with You there.

I KNOW

No matter where I go,
No matter what I do,
Ev’n in my greatest sorrow,
I know I can count on You.

Tho’ my friends forsake me,
Tho’ I am down and blue,
Ev’n tho’ I’m in mis’ry,
I know You’ll see me thru’.

I know I may have pain,
I know I may have sorrow,
Ev’n tho’ my spirits wane,
I know thru’ You, blessings flow.

At times I may be depress’d,
At times I may feel sad,
Ev’n tho’ I don’t feel my best,
I know comfort can be had.

No matter how grim my plight,
No matter if I fall,
Ev’n tho’ days seem dark as night,
I know You’ll hear my call.

Trusting You is part of me,
Trusting You, is what I do,
Ev’n tho’ I have agony,
I know I can count on You.

Lord, why do I trust Thee?
Why do I trust Thee so?
The reasons are many,
As to You each time I go.

Comfort I receive from You,
And mercy at Your Hand,
You lift me up with love so true,
You bless me with love so grand.

I KNOW

I know I fall short, and often stumble,
And I know I should be more humble.
I know many times, You I displease,
And walk away, when a burden I could ease.

I know hasty words, I should not say,
And at times, I willingly disobey.
At times, I have a hateful attitude,
And at times I know, I’m very rude.

Things I should do, ne’er seem to get done,
And my Christian race, is not well run.
Evil thoughts at times, enter my mind,
I know to all wrong, I should be blind.

To my neighbor, I oft times do wrong,
Temptation around me, is so strong.
I know I should love everyone,
I know I should imitate God’s own Son.

I know I should be strong, instead I’m weak,
And I know at these times, You I should seek.
Why do I do things I should not do?
I really don’t want, to anger You.

I know I love You, but this I don’t show,
And it brings to my heart, great sorrow.
I truly do love You, and will always,
Dear Lord Jesus, please help me obey.

I Know I’ll see Jesus, Face to face,

I know for now, I must trust and obey,
As I walk with Jesus, ev’ry day.
The practice of sin, is not for me,
For I dearly want, life eternally.

I know that Jesus, is the only Way,
That anyone can get, to Heaven one day.
I know that millions, think that’s not so,
But the Bible says, to Hell they’ll go.

I know the Promise, a mansion above,
Prepared for us, with God’s own love.
Our inheritance, reserved for us,
Incorruptible, pure and precious!

I know Almighty God, cannot lie,
Eternal life is ours, in the by and by.
This wondrous hope, we look forward to,
The beauty of Heaven, one day we’ll view.

I know that the Bible, we must believe,
Or the wrath of God, we will receive.
We have life, just thru’ own Son,
When we believe, that life has begun!

Calling Him “Father,” He does permit,
If to Christ Jesus, we do submit.
I know just Jesus, can justify,
When by faith in Him, we do rely!

I know just thru’ Jesus, can we have peace,
From the bond of Satan, we have release.
I know just Jesus, can give peace of mind,
Just with Jesus, will Heaven’s gate you find.

Sorrow and pain could well be in stride,
But I know Someone who will abide.

I do not know what lies out ahead,
It may be happiness; it might be dread.
We must not question our mighty Lord,

I know He loves me, and truly does care,
And is with me always, everywhere.
No mortal could e’er be such a friend.
He’ll be with me to my journey’s end.

I know He will never leave or forsake,
And He’ll stand by me, in my mistakes.
It’s such a comfort to know He’s near,
As He whispers to me “You need not fear.”

I know He loves me, for He cannot lie,
On His strength and wisdom, I can rely.
He forgives me when my sin I confess,
With His faithfulness, He does bless.

His grace is sufficient, for me always,
No matter the trouble of my days.
Pain or sickness, or deepest sorrow,
His love makes me see, a brighter tomorrow.

As I consider His great love for me,
He’ll be with me, thru’ eternity.
He prepares for me, a wondrous place,
And one day soon, I will see His Face.

As He sits on the Father’s right Hand,
He has power to control all the land.
Just He holds the key to Heav’n’s shore,
Where blissful delight will be in store.

As I wait for my mansion above,
I can envision His wondrous love.

I LOOK TO THE DAY

Lord, one day soon, I'll meet you Face to face,
As I view the beauty, of that heav'n'ly place.
Lord, that's all the glory, I'll ever need,
Loving You first and always, is my creed.

Let me serve You, till it's my time to go,
Death to me, is not a worry or woe.
Absent from the body, present with You,
I claim this Promise, for I know 'tis true.

You are preparing, a "mansion" for me,
That I may live wih You, eternally.
Reserv'd for me, Your Holy Book does say,
Thank You Jesus, for showing me the way.

I look to the day, when I sin no more,
And I walk on that wondrous, heav'n'ly shore.
If I have rewards, I'll give them to You,
For I am so grateful, I'm one of the "few."

Me, without sin, it's hard to believe,
But it's true, when new bodies we receive.
We'll walk with Him in white, in Glory Land,
Walking on that street of gold, Hand in hand.

We must love and trust Christ, and Him profess,
Or our name in Heav'n, He will not confess.
In the Lamb's Book of Life, our name must be,
Or we in Hell, will spend eternity.

Each of us have, a certain number of years,
And with each hour, our time to go draws near.
One day, Face to face with Jesus you'll stand,
Are you with the goats, or on Christ's right hand?

I love Jesus, for what He’s done for me,
Keeping me from, eternal agony.
I love Jesus, for He died in my stead,
Paid my penalty, now I have no dread.

I love Jesus, because He first loved me,
Only He, could set my burd’ned soul free.
I love Jesus, for He does justify,
So I won’t ever, eternally die.

I love Jesus, for He keeps me on the path,
That keeps me from, God’s Holy, righteous wrath.
I love Jesus, and follow in His Light,
For He’s always there, in my ev’ry plight.

I love Jesus, He gives me joy and peace,
And of strife and worry, He gives me release.
I love Jesus, He won’t forsake or leave,
With His Presence near, I need never grieve.

I love Jesus, He bought me with His Blood,
Washed me white as snow, with that precious Flood.
I love Jesus, for He really loves me,
I look forward, to life eternally.

I love Jesus, for He prepares a place,
‘Twill be ready, when I finish my race.
An inheritance, pure and undefil’d,
I love Jesus, for He makes me God’s child.

I love Jesus, for His Spirit abides,
Assisting me daily, as He resides.
I love Jesus, and I appreciate,
My precious Saviour, majestic and great.

I MUST

On the strait and narrow path, I must stay,
And my precious Lord, I must obey.
I must have close fellowship with Him,
Or my chance of Heav’n, is very dim.

I must consider, how others feel,
I must serve Jesus, with love and zeal.
Faith in my Saviour, must persevere,
If I am to feel, His Presence near.

I’ll stray from the narrow path, I know,
But with wisdom from Christ, back I’ll go!
Satan will tempt me, day after day,
I must trust Christ Jesus, all the way.

I must stay on that strait, narrow path,
If I am to avoid, the Father’s wrath.
I must stay away, from the broad road,
That leads to Satan’s fiery abode.

Most of the world, to the broad road flock,
But to them, the gates of Heav’n are lock’d.
The lone gate of Hell, will let them in,
For the God of wrath, condemns their sin.

Unbelief is a terrible thing,
Satan blinds the eyes, to God’s blessings.
Making folks think, the broad road is right,
Blindness keeps them off, the path of light.

Help me Lord, to stay on the narrow road,
That leads me to my eternal Home.
I must stay close to You, I must obey
I know dear Jesus, there’s no other way.

I must not judge others, I must judge me,
Help me to see that I’m far from sin-free.

Lord, at times I don’t like things that are done,
They cause me much grief, and are no fun.
But judging others is not, for me to do,
I must let that in Your Hands, it’s up to You.

Some times for no reason my anger flares,
I can’t judge other’s anger, I must beware.
I must always be careful, I must judge me,
From all the wrongs that I do, I must flee.

I can’t remove the speck in someone’s eye,
If the log in my eye, I flatly deny.
I must beware of actions that I do,
If I want to be a follower of You.

Lord, let me remember, the awesomeness of You.
No one can compare, with the God of eternity,
Lord God, I want to be Your friend, not Your enemy.

Heavenly Father, I don’t fear You as I should,
I must reverence Your Presence, this must be understood.
Dear Lord I’m too casual, with how I feel about You,
Lord teach me to have more respect each day anew.

Most gracious Heavenly Father, I must love You more,

I Must Judge Me

First and foremost, I must judge me,
As I walk on, to eternity.
Difficult paths, rugged and steep,
But a sense of right, is what I must keep.

Judging other’s hearts, I must not do,
“Judge not” Jesus tells me, words so true.
If I judge, I’ll be judged the same way,
And this I don’t want, on Judgment Day.

If I judge others, I condemn me,
For I may do the same, as my enemy.
To judge others, no excuse have I,
My actions, Christ will not justify.

What will I say, at the Judgment Seat?
When Judge Jesus, I finally meet?
‘Twill be just me, and me alone,
All I have e’er done, will be known.

Have you e’er consider’d these things?
What will you friend, to this court bring?
We’ll be judged, by what we do and say,
How we treat those, along life’s way.

As I walk on, to eternity,
I must consider, judging me.
Judging others, I must forget,
When I judge self, I’ll have no regrets.

Dear Lord, forgive my iniquity.
Repentance is something I must feel,
And Lord, I know, it must be real!

Jesus said I must mourn of my sin,
Turn to the Lord, rend your heart, within.
If we harden our heart, we can’t please God,
We must fear the Lord, where e’er we trod.

Our sin we must not try to justify,
Sin is wicked, sin God does despise.
We must admit we’re wrong, and God is right,
We must repent, with a heart, contrite.

No matter what I do, or where I trod.

Oft’ times I weep, enduring ridicule,

Like dry thirsty land, with rain far away.
For wisdom, my heart to God does cry,
His precious Word, I don’t want to deny.

At my Saviour’s feet I need to be,
Like the sister of Martha; ‘Mary’.
I must feel His love and hear His Word,
I must show to Him, He is adored.

My Lord did promise I’ll never thirst,
But I must love Him. and put Him FIRST!
If I hunger after righteousness,
He promised to fill, and to bless.

I MUST love God the way that I do,
Learning, and serving, and always true.
Straight from my heart, I must do God’s will,
This, my God, in my soul did instill.

I NEED ---

Lord, I need to know more about you,
Lord, I hunger for your love so true.
I need to know more of your pure grace,
Lord, I long to see your precious Face.

I need to feel your presence so near,
For then my troubles seem to disappear.
I need to feel your loving kindness,
Your mercy and compassion, as you bless.

I need about Jesus, more to learn,
Let your Spirit teach me to discern.
More ‘bout your kingdom, I need to know,
As I try to walk the strait and narrow.

Lord, I need to serve you more each day,
I need your Spirit to show the way.
More loving and caring I must be,
O Lord, how I need you, constantly!

I NEED

I need nourishment from Christ, the Vine,
What a joy to know, that it is mine!
Without food from Him, I’d surely die,
This fact, I won’t ever deny!

I must receive comfort from my Lord,
From the abundance He has stored.
Lack of His comfort brings great sorrow,
But His awesome comfort makes me glow!

O how I need His encouragement,
And His nearness is all sufficient.
When I’m down, He revitalizes me,
For He is present, continually!

I truly need His almighty pow’r,
And He’s there for me, at any hour!
With His great strength, I can do all things,
I’m so thankful, for all His blessings!

Of His superb love, I’m so in need,
And it is abounding, I need not plead.
So warm inside, His love makes me feel,
This marvelous love, He does reveal!

I truly need His amazing grace,
‘Tis always there; any time, any place!
Because of His grace, He forgives me,
And that same grace brings life, eternally!

Christ does promise to fill all my needs,
And He promises my prayers to heed.
So awesome and amazing is my Lord,
Always blessing with spiritual rewards.

I NEED HIM!

Without Christ, I have no pow’r at all,
In ev’ry hour, on Him I must call.
O’ how I need, His strength ev’ry day,
And His guidance, to show me the way!

I need Him, when temptation sets in,
His pow’r alone, can keep me from sin.
Satan comes at me, from ev’ry angle,
Christ makes me strong, when with him I tangle!

I need Christ Jesus, when pain appears,
Comfort is there, when His Presence is near.
The pain lessens, considerably,
When I feel His Presence, close to me!

Without Christ, the wrong roads, oft’ I take,
I need His help, right choices to make.
Always on paths of light, me, He leads,
I must love and honor Him, and pay heed!

Without Christ, ‘twould be the Lake of Fire,
WITH Christ, ‘tis Heav’n, which is my desire,
His Promise, a mansion that awaits,
And a glorious entrance, at Hean’n’s gate!

WITH Christ, we will spend eternity,
Taking in all, Heav’n’s glorious beauty,
A grand Saviour and Lord, we have indeed,
Heav’n is ours, if we trust Him and pay heed!

I NEVER THOUGHT

You never seemed important to me,
As I lived my life, so sinfully.
I stayed on the road, to wickedness,
And not once did I, my sins confess.

I never thought of the horrors of Hell,
I never thought, that there I might dwell.
I never once thought of my evil ways,
Instead it was “me, me” ev’ry day.

Lord Jesus, I never once thought ‘bout You,
Never once thought, that You were always true.
Never once thought ‘bout Your awesome love for me,
And I never thought, ‘bout eternity.

Strange how one day, my eyes open’d wide,
Strange, I then wanted You, to come inside!
God works in strange and mysterious ways,
Now, I think of Christ Jesus, ev’ry day!

Now Jesus is so, important to me,
As I try to live life, victoriously.
I now travel on the small, narrow road,
The one that leads to my heav’nly abode.

I always think of Jesus’ love so great,
Love so awesome, I can’t calculate.
I now think of my “mansion” on high,
For I know that on Jesus, I can rely.

I Realize

I realize, that death waits ahead,
Because of You Lord, I have no dread,
But before I opened, my heart’s door,
I was terrified of death, and much more.

I realize, death lies down the road,
But You promise, a heav’n’ly abode..
A great inheritance, waits for me,
Your grand gift, of life eternally.

I realize, when death comes my way,
‘Twill be a start, to a brand new day.
Absent from the body, present with the Lord,
A tremendous Promise, in Your Word.

Let me walk by faith, not by sight,
Keep me from that broad road, dark as night.
In the Holy Spirit, I must walk,
And stay away from Satan, as he stalks.

When Jesus in the clouds, does descend,
My life on Earth, would come to an end.
Be it death or the Rapture, I know not,
I do not want, off guard, to be caught.

When my time shall come, I do not know,
I must keep close, as Jesus I follow.
I look forward, to my mansion on high,
Reserv’d in Heav’n, my Lord won’t deny.

I SAW A MAN

I had a dream, and it made me moan,
So deep within me, my soul did groan.
In this strange dream, diff’rent things took place,
And diff’rent expressions, on the man’s face.

I saw a man, as he read a Book,
Filthy rags he wore, I could not look.
As he read from the Book, tears did flow,
I could clearly see, great sorrow.

His frightful cry of “What can I do?”
His sincere agony, was in full view.
“Lord, I’m a sinner, I do confess,”
This man was in, dreadful stress.

Many tears did fall, as he did read,
It seemed the words, he wanted to heed.
The words he read, deeply touched his heart,
Then he cried “From sin I’ll depart.”

“Woe is me” the man in rags did cry,
“My Saviour and Lord, I did deny.
God’s judgment awaits the likes of me,
For He is God, of eternity.”

This man in rags, had a burden great,
‘Twas hard indeed, to estimate.
He trembled in horrible agony,
Friend, this man in rags, was none but me.

When I consider ways of my past,
I realize, into Hell I’d have been cast.
I praise God for making plain to me,
I need salvation, thru’ Christ’s victory.

I SEE JESUS EVERYWHERE . . . Mar.2001 Message

On each scarlet rose, I see so pure,
The crimson Blood of my dear Saviour.
When I see a flower, I see His Face,
Filled with such beauty, love, and grace!

In the sun, I see His ne’er ending Light,
Stars remind me of His eyes, so bright.
Rain makes me think of the tears He shed,
For you and me; out of love, not dread.

When I see a great oak tree, so tall,
I feel His strength, that won’t let me fall.
Too, when I see a tree, I’m at a loss,
For in every tree, I see His Cross.

Thunder makes me think of His voice so strong,
That He’ll use in judgment of all wrong.
With His breath He does make the sea obey,
A raging storm; or calmed, and stayed.

When I see a vine, twisted with thorns,
I think of the ‘crown’ He had adorned.
He died on that Cross to set us free,
But nearly all people from Him flee.

I see Him always; He’s all around,
When I look at the sky, or on the ground.
The gentle breeze makes me know He’s near,
He’s always close, I’ve nothing to fear.

The above is My husband's favorite poem.

I SEEK YOU

For wondrous hope Lord, I seek Your love,
For You promis’d, a mansion above.
A grand inheritance, reserv’d for me,
That won’t fade away, thru’ eternity.

For true contentment, I seek Your peace,
Not like the world’s peace, Yours shall ne’er cease.
Deep down inside, no one can understand,
This feeling can come, only from Your Hand.

When sins are a load, I seek Your mercy,
You pull me from the sea, of iniquity.
Forgiveness is mine, when I go in pray’r,
Each time I seek You Lord, You prove You care.

When life’s burdens, seem to have no end,
It’s then that I seek You, as my Friend.
Always sufficient, is Your amazing grace,
You are always there, as I run my race.

When joy eludes, it is You that I seek,
You always strengthen me, when I am weak.
You cast away all my doubt and worry,
Confirming that I have, life eternally.

It is You that I seek, when my faith is low,
Faith increases, a blessing You bestow.
Mountains and valleys, You help me thru’,
What an asset it is, to have You.

I seek Your light, as life’s path I walk,
Especially when the old devil stalks.
I thank You Lord, for all You do for me,
And I thank You for life eternally.

If I attempt, I will surely fail,
My sheer knowledge is to no avail.

My many enemies, I should fear,
If Your Holy Presence is not near!
If I should take a stand, on my own,
My pitiful weakness, is clearly shown!

I should surely fear, if I don’t love,
In this sinful world of push and shove.
If I live with a heart full of hate,
In God’s eyes, I’m in a fearful state.

I should certainly be afraid to die,
If on the Saviour, I do not rely!
If in glorious Heav’n, I want to dwell,
Precious Jesus, must keep me from Hell!

There’s much to fear as I walk this land,
So I must stay close, and hold His Hand!
With Christ on my side, I’ve nought to fear,
I can depend on Him, for He is near!

Jesus can take all your fears away,
Turn to Him now, and trust Him today.
With Him, we need never be afraid,
He’ll love, comfort, guide; and grant us aid!

I THIRST

“I thirst” our precious Lord did say,
As He hung on the cross, that dark, dreadful day.
His thirst, made our thirst, be satisfied,
That day on the cross, that He was crucified.

Pure Living Water, from the Throne of God flows,
To all who believe, a blessing bestowed.
As an oasis in a desert so dry,
Our thirst shall be filled, Jesus won’t deny.

Christ’s water is an everlasting spring,
Our thirst shall be quenched, by Water He brings.
The Well of Salvation refreshes our soul,
Trusting only in Christ, should be our goal.

The Water of Christ gives life eternally,
A blessing from God, and a mystery.
A fountain from the House of the Lord will flow,
In that day there shall be no pain or sorrow.

The Lamb in the midst of the throne shall feed us,
Leading us to Living Waters so precious.
Whosoever will may take the Water of Life freely.
And live in Heaven, for eternity.

I THOUGHT

Once I thought I knew, all about God,
I was carefree, as the broad road I trod.
Satan deceived me, I thought all was well,
And all the while, I was speeding to Hell.

Once I thought, I could go it on my own,
I was proud, I thought I could do it alone.
Satan deceived me, I thought I was right,
And all the while, I was the devil’s delight.

Once I thought, everyone goes to Heaven,
I was sure Heaven’s bliss, to all was giv’n.
Satan deceived me, I thought I was on my way,
For all the while, I thought I was okay.

Then one day, the Spirit clearly spoke to me,
Telling me about, life eternally.
Satan wouldn’t deceive me, any more,
Now I was headed, for Heav’n’s blissful shore.

Now I knew for certain, without a doubt,
What life without Jesus, was all about.
Hell would be mine, in the twinkling of an eye,
I would go to Hell for sure, when I’d die.

I changed my thinking, I knew I must,
I accepted Jesus, and Him I trust.
I’m assured Heaven is mine, this I now know,
Because I trust Jesus, there I will go!

I THOUGHT I KNEW IT ALL!

I thought I knew it all, but I was wrong,
With the devil’s crowd, I just tagg’d along.
Walking on that broad road, headed for Hell,
And all the time, I thought I was doing well.

I thought I knew it all, thought I was right,
But hanging with that crowd, days were dark as night.
I made choices, I should never have made,
And never for a moment, was I afraid.

I thought I knew it all, my pride stood tall,
Never thinking, I was headed for a fall.
I wanted no part of humility,
I lived my life, so wild and recklessly.

The Lord tried and tried, to speak to my heart,
But when I’d feel Him tugging, I’d quickly depart.
I thought I knew it all, I wanted things my way,
Great stubborn unbelief, I did display.

But Jesus would not, back away from me,
He’d speak to my heart, so persistently.
Then one day, I truly, started to think,
“Stubborn one, you’re standing, close to Hell’s brink.”

I kept thinking more, with each passing hour,
Still I wouldn’t give in, to the Lord’s pow’r.
“You do not know it all,” one day I said,
For my lonely heart, was filling with dread.

Fin’lly I admitted, “Christ is what I need,”
Then to His loving Spirit, I paid heed.
I didn’t know it all, now ‘tis plain to see,
I needed my Saviour, for eternity.

I WANT TO DO RIGHT BY YOU

Lord, I want always to do right by You,
In my thoughts and words, and all I do.
Help me Lord, to stay on the narrow path,
For I want Your blessing, not Your wrath.

Lord, to others around, let me do right,
Help me to walk in Your precious light.
Let me imitate You in all I do,
Lord, I want to be worthy of You.

Let me do right to those You bring my way,
Lord, I trust You, but I need help to obey.
Let them see You, in my words and deeds,
That what I do say, they might take heed.

A bad example I don’t want to be,
Don’t let the devil, play havoc with me.
To everyone Lord, let me do right,
Let me always be pleasing in Your sight.

I WANT YOU

Lord, I want You with me, in all I do,
For I truly am helpless, without You.
I need Your strength, I need You by my side,
I am privileged Lord, to have You abide.

I want You to help, in choices I make,
My lack of wisdom, causes many mistakes.
I blunder each time I neglect to pray,
I need Your wisdom to go the right way.

I want You to show, the way that is right,
Lord, I need Your guidance and Your Light.
The path ahead is dark, not always clear,
It’s a blessing to know that You are near.

Lord, I want You, to help in all things,
On my own I will have just blunderings.
You are the Vine, Lord, and I’ll cling to You,
I need Your strength in ev’ry thing I do.

I WILL NEVER LEAVE YOU . . . .June 2000 Message

If we be perfect thru’ Christ, and upright,
Fearing, revering God; things can be bright.
He will uphold us, whatever may come,
Till we behold Him, in Our Heav’nly home.

Satan shall buffet our body so weak,
Let us remember; our Saviour, so meek.
No one who has e’er walked here below,
Has been thru’ the suff’ring that Christ did know.

Shall we receive only good from God’s Hand?
When His only Son agonized on this land.
If we remember to give God first place,
He shall be with us as we run our race.

Bad things may come on our pathway of life,
That which we fear the most, may cause us strife.
Let us not lose our faith, nor trust in Him,
And that long pathway will never be dim.

Great troubles may come when we least expect,
And over our lives, we may then reflect.
“What did I do to deserve this? why me Lord?”
Then we recall what He says in His Word.

He knoweth exactly the way that I take,
He’s watching to see the progress I make.
God makes us a promise, one He won’t break,
I will never leave you; never forsake!

I WON’T GO TO HELL

“I won’t go to Hell”, most people would say,
They really believe this, in their own way!
They don’t know what the Bible does tell,
Reject Jesus, and in Hell, you shall dwell.

Most think only bad people will go there,
Like Hitler, Mussolini; ones who scare.
They think they don’t sin; they’re moral and kind,
But there’s a day coming, the truth they’ll find!

Just the evil, wicked hoodlums shall go,
To that horrible place, so far below.
“I won’t go there, I don’t do bad things,
I’ll go to Heaven, and with angels sing.”

Most feel in their heart they won’t go to Hell,
But without a ‘passport’, there they shall dwell!
No matter how good, or moral you are,
Without Jesus, Heaven, will be barred!

“Hell is a place for others,” you may say,
But friend, without Christ, YOU are on the way!
God’s Word clearly tells, we must trust His Son,
Or Hell, with its agony, you have won!

You don’t want to go to that awful place,
And you don’t have to; He’ll save you, by grace!
Just trust Jesus; He’s your ‘passport’ today,
And you won’t go to Hell, not any day!

I’D BE DOOMED!

A fish out of water, that’s what I’d be,
Without my Saviour, who gives victory!
Problems would seem, to have no end in sight,
I praise You Jesus, for Your glorious Light!

I’d be like a bird, with a broken wing,
If I did not have Jesus, as my King!
I’d be so alone, when things would go wrong,
Because on my own, I’m weak, never strong!

Without my Shepherd, I’d be a lost sheep,
Headed for the pits of Hell, e’er so deep.
To all the dangers, myself I couldn’t defend,
On my Saviour and Lord, I must depend!

I’d be like a person, who could not swim,
Tossed into deep waters, so dark and grim.
Without my Saviour, I surely would die,
But with Him near, I can trust and rely!

Like a dog with only three legs to walk,
Without Christ Jesus, predators would stalk!
But with Him by my side, I’ve nought to fear,,
For I am assured, His Presence is near!

I’d be like a rose, with its beauty gone,
I would surely be the old devil’s pawn.
Without my Lord, Satan has full control,
Hell would be, the destiny of my soul!

I would be doom’d, without my precious Lord,
All my cries for help, would never be heard.
But I praise the Name, of God’s only Son,
Accepting Him, gives eternal salvation!

I’D RATHER

I’d rather be God’s doorman, for eternity,
Than spend one horrid hour, in Hell’s dark agony.
I’d rather be a poor man, and be God’s friend,
Than be a rich man in Hell, where screaming ne’er ends.

I’d rather scrub the floors, in God’s mansion above,
Than enter Hell’s dark abyss, so vacant of love.
I’d rather serve my Master, what e’er His demands,
Than to be locked in Hell, ne’er to see Heaven’s land.

I’d rather cast ev’ry bit of pride away,
That I might be exalted, by my Lord some day.
I’d rather be humble, and enter Heaven’s gate,
Than wind up in Hell, and hear the words: “It’s too late.”

I’d rather walk this day, as Christ does bid me walk,
And have my heart bring forth right words, when I talk.
I’d rather please my Lord, and strive to obey,
Than to be condemned to Hell, for always.

I’d rather trust Jesus, God’s one and only Son,
Than believe Satan, who deceives most ev’ry one.
I’d rather walk by faith, trusting all the way,
Than anger my Lord, when I doubt and disobey.

I’d rather serve my Master, and be at His Feet,
Than be a rich man being served dainties so sweet.
I’d rather be in Heaven with my Lord so true,
Than be locked in Hell, with no pardon or rescue.

I'd Rather . . . March 2012 Message

I'd rather serve my Master, and be at His Feet,
Than be a rich man, being served dainties so sweet.
We all have decisions, in this life to decide,
Will we serve the Lord in Heaven? . . . .or in Hell reside?

I'd rather be a poor man, and the Lord believe,
Than be a rich man, and the devil's lies receive.
Many choices stand before us, as this life we live,
It depends what we choose, on what place the Lord gives.

I'd rather follow Jesus, on the path of light,
Than traipse after Satan, on broad roads black as night.
The Lord will guide us, on those narrow roads so strait,
To keep following satan, you decide your own fate.

I'd rather love the Lord, and be the Father's child,
Than to listen to Satan, and from Heaven be exiled.
When you choose the devil, and all his wicked ways,
You'll spend eternity in Hell, all of your days.

I'd rather obey God, and always do His will,
Than allow Satan, worldly desires to instill.
There are only two places, in eternity,
The Lake of Fire, OR Heaven's amazing beauty.

I'd rather be a fool, in this world's evil eyes,
Than be an unbeliever, who my God denies.
Choosing another god, is the wrong way to go,
It will lead just to Hell, and eternal sorrow.

I'd rather go to Heaven, and live with the Lord,
Spending ev'n one hour in Hell, I cannot afford.
Lord, help me always to choose, Your will and right paths,
For I ne'er want to face, the judgment of Your wrath.

IDOLATRY

Most commit the sin of idolatry,
And it leads to eternal Hell’s agony.
So many things in life, take the Lord’s place,
Which leads to great displeasure, on His Face.

With money and riches, Satan does tempt,
And not one person, from it is exempt.
Storing treasures on Earth, is stupidity,
For all the world offers, is temporary.

Treasures in Heav’n, should be first on our mind,
When we lust for wealth, Satan our eyes blinds.
Idolatry dear one, is covetousness,
When we’re greedy for gain, God will not bless.

Idolatry can be, any pleasure,
Sports or sex, or leisure without measure.
Anything you put above God, is wrong,
You’re speeding down the broad road, with a throng.

IDOLATRY

Idolatry is a serious thing,
For it, the wrath of God, on you does bring.
Anything above God, that you place,
Means one day, condemnation you’ll face.

Riches, an idol that leads astray,
Love of money, tempts us ev’ry day.
To place above God, what wealth can buy,
Is dreadful sin, in God’s Holy Eye.

Pleasure too, can be idolatry,
From this idol, very few are free.
Sports of all kinds, make people go wild,
Pleasure makes folks forget, they’re God’s child.

Idolatry is glory and fame,
These, never think of Jesus’ Name.
They want the world to see all they do,
Pride, pride, pride; don’t let it get to you.

It is a jealous God that we serve,
Our love and affections, He deserves.
He must be first in our life, always,
If we want to travel, Heav’n’s highway.

Idolatry leads only to Hell,
Where all walking the broad road, shall dwell.
Trust and obey Christ Jesus this day,
For just He can show you, Heav’n’s display.

IF

If in Christ Jesus you do abide,
Evil thoughts and actions will subside.
Sin once rampant, now has lost its hold,
The Spirit of righteousness now unfolds.

If with Christ Jesus you fellowship,
He’s there! no matter how hard the trip!
Tho’ the path ahead be dark and steep,
The Spirit of light will guide and keep!

If Christ be in you, and you in Him,
The road of life will never be dim.
In rugged high mountains, or valleys low,
The Spirit of Christ will blessings bestow!

If you walk humbly in Christ our Lord,
Things of the flesh you can now discard.
If we are God’s children as we do say,
From all evil, we must run away!

If you ‘put on Christ Jesus’ as your dress,
You’ll want to do only righteousness.
You’ll not want to stain your clothes so white,
Cast filthy sin away, do what’s right.

If you take on Christ’s tremendous Name,
You must walk in the light, not bring Him shame!
You must do only things He would do,
A life of meekness you must pursue.

IF CHRIST IS YOUR SAVIOUR

If Christ is your Saviour, God blesses you
In so many ways, and in all that you do.
You are indeed a child of God, so great,
Did you e’er wonder? “Just how do I rate?”

‘Tis not works you do, that make you His child,
Only the ‘Works of Christ’ are undefiled.
We must go thru’ Christ, to get to God,
This means ev’ry nation, the world abroad.

If Christ is your Saviour, peace is with you,
Peace, down in your heart; peace, warm and true.
We have perfect peace, whose mind is on Him,
Worldly peace can’t compare; it’s false and dim.

If Christ is your Saviour, please take heed,
God did promise, to supply all our needs.
Food, drink, clothing and shelter He will give,
If you are His child, as long as you live.

If Christ is your Saviour, you’ll not see Hell,
Instead, with God, in Heav’n you’ll dwell.
Eternal life is promised, thru’ God’s Son,
Acceptance of Christ, means Heav’n, you’ve won!

But He submitted, and was crucified!
His precious Blood, on the cross was shed,
That those who trust Him, would have no dread.

Would He have left Heaven’s security?
If He didn’t care, for you and me?
He left the glory of the heavenly host,
To come and suffer, on earthly coasts.

If He didn’t care, He wouldn’t have come,
Leaving the comfort of His heav’nly Home.
He loves us much; He really does care,
And our burdens of life, He does share.

If I Lift Me Up . . . September 2015 Message

If I lift me up, God will put me down,
On all pride and arrogance, He does frown.
If I think I’m better, than any one,
I greatly displease my Saviour, God’s Son.

If I look with scorn, at those on the street,
Dome day I’ll be humbled, at Jesus’ Feet.
If I look with pride, at all that I own,
The Lord’s chastisement, will clearly be shown.

If I think the Lord loves me, more than you,
I certainly am not, one of the “few.”
Pride is strange, it creeps in so subtlely,
Satan is behind it, so deceitfully.

If I think you’re unworthy, of forgiveness,
Judgment of this kind, the Lord will not bless.
I must forgive, or God won’t forgive me,
Satan is glad, when we live sinfully.

Pride is opposite, of humility,
God doesn’t want us to live, arrogantly.
If we lift ourselves up, God will put us down,
We must be careful, if we want a crown.

I must not be puffed up, must not envy,
Ne’er in myself, should I ever glory.
If I want to please God, I must be meek,
Pride and arrogance, I must not seek.

I must realize, I’m nothing at all,
Knowing pride surely comes, ‘fore a fall.
If I some day, want a heavenly crown,
I won’t lift me up, and God won’t have to put me down.

IF I TURN TO YOU

If I turn to You in my deepest need,
My humble prayer You will always heed!
If I turn to You when all things go wrong,
I know I’ll obtain strength to make me strong!

If I turn to You for your guiding light,
I can be assured You will lead me right!
If I turn to You with a heavy heart,
There is no doubt You will never depart!

If I turn to You when I feel sadness,
The depths of my soul will receive gladness!
If I turn to You in times of temptation,
The old devil has lost and I have won!

If I turn to You when I have much pain,
Your Presence comforts; I achieve great gain!

If I’m Wise

If I’m wise, I’ll want His will for me,
As I walk on, to eternity.
To demand my way, is foolishness,
To act in this way, God will not bless.

If I’m wise, I will trust and obey,
I can’t reach Heav’n, any other way.
The Gospel of Christ, I must believe,
And the Son of God, I must receive.

If I’m wise, love must be in my heart,
From hatred and wrong, I must depart.
Way down deep in my heart, God can see,
I must do right, to live eternally.

If I’m wise, my thoughts I must control,
For I want it to be, well with my soul.
God knows my thoughts, ev’ry single one,
He knows the end, ‘fore a thing’s begun.

If I’m wise, love must be a part of me,
Love must be active, that’s how it must be.
Love the Lord, my God, with all my heart,
Love others too, from that, don’t depart.

If I’m wise, I must stay in His Word,
Ne’er forgetting, stay near to the Lord.
God’s Word is wisdom, close I must stay,
For I want to please Him, ev’ry day.

IF ONLY

If only I would be, more like You Lord,
Please Lord, teach me, thru’ Your Holy Word.
I truly desire, to please just You,
In all that I think, or say or do.

If only I would not criticize,
Chastise me Lord, that I might be wise.
Let me be more like You, ev’ry day,
Guide me Lord, in all the right ways.

If only I would not judge others,
For my deeds are oft worse than my brothers.
From Your Holy Word Lord, please teach me,
Equip me Lord, for eternity.

If only others, I would love more,
Reprimand me, as Your Word I explore.
Let me learn to love, with Your perfect love,
Let me be fitted, for life above.

If only I’d not think evil things,
I know I would receive more blessings.
Help me to walk that strait, narrow path,
Keep me dear Lord, away from God’s wrath.

So many things in life, I do so wrong,
For I am weak without You, never strong.
Stay near to me Lord, ever so near,
If only You will, gone is my fear.

IF YOU DON’T KNOW CHRIST

Think ‘bout your worst pain and agony,
‘Bout your deepest sorrow and misery;
‘Bout the greatest suffering you’ve been thru’,
The depths of Hell will be much worse for you!

Think about awful unhappiness,
And ‘bout all the times you were friendless.
‘Bout the times you were lonely and blue,
Eternal Hell will be much worse for you!

Just think ‘bout the sun’s sweltering heat,
And so dark you can’t see your hands or feet.
Think ‘bout a dungeon with no exit door,
Eternal death is this, and much more!

Think about no light ever again,
No water to ever ease thirst’s pain.
You can avoid all these awful things,
For Christ can all the opposite bring!

IF YOU KNOW CHRIST

If you know Christ as Saviour today,
Heav’n is yours, with its gala array.
Your future Home is in Heav’n on High,
All God’s children will meet there, by and by.

The day will come, none too soon for me,
Almighty God will issue the decree.
We’ll meet our Saviour, high in the air,
A wondrous reunion, with Christ, so fair.

We have companionship, ‘til that day,
God’s Holy Spirit, abides alway.
We’re never alone, He does abide,
To empower, to comfort, and to guide.

Such a legacy we have from our Lord,
Peace, as He does promise, in His Word.
We need not be troubled, nor have fear,
For Christ, our Saviour, is always near.

Just thru’ Christ, can we have peace and joy,
The world, these blessings, cannot deploy.
If you know Christ, as Saviour today,
You’ll have blessings now, and alway.

IF YOU PROFESS CHRIST

If you take on the Name, of God’s Son, 1 John 2:29; 5:18

Be fill’d with the Spirit, not the world, Eph.3:18; 5:18; Col.1:9; Jam.4:4; 1 John 2:15-17
Serious faults are by Satan unfurled. Eph.4:26-27; 6:11; 1 Pet.5:8-9

And sexual sins, in all degrees. 1 Cor.6:9; Lev.18:22

They will pull you down, in sin’s filthy mire.

Varience, jealousy, wrath and strife, Gal.5:20; Rom.1:29
Don’t have a place in a Christian’s life!
Rebellion, witchcraft, idolatry, Gal.5:21; Rom.1:30; 2 Tim.3:4; Eph.5:5
ALL these are sin, to both you and me!

Murder, wild parties, and drunkenness, 1 John 3:15; Gal.5:21; 1 Cor.6:10

The Spirit will produce “fruits” in us, Gal.5:22-23
These “fruits” make us victorious! Jam.3:17-18; John 15:1-5

Love, joy, peace, patience and gentleness, Gal.5:22;
Faith, goodness, self-control and meekness, Gal.5:23

I’LL BE THERE

One day when you walk, on that street of gold,
Such great wondrous beauty, you will behold!
Thanks be to a loving Saviour who cares,
When you walk that street, I too, will be there!

One day when you reach Heav’n’s blissful shore,
You’ll experience blessings, God holds in store!
All because Christ Jesus loves me and you,
When you get to Heav’n; I’ll be there too!

One day when you’ve been there, ten thousand years,
With never a worry, and no more tears!
Glory be to Jesus, for He loves us so,
I’ll be there to honor Him, I want you to know!

One day when to our God, you sing your praise,
I’ll be there in that throng, my voice to raise!
I’ll worship Jesus, the Almighty King,
And thank Him for that life, just He could bring!

I’ll know Him! and know there’s no mistake,
For I’ll live for e’er, with judgments He makes.

Will I know Christ in that City of Gold?
Will I have regrets, as His Face I behold?
I’ll know Him! I’ll know that precious Face,
And I’ll know I’m there, just by His grace!

I will know my Saviour, instantly!
And I’ll praise and thank Him eternally!

I’M HEAVEN BOUND

I’m Heaven bound, as I journey thru’
This world of preparation; “How ‘bout you?”
On this Earth, we’ll decide where we’ll go,
To Heaven with God, or Hell below.

Our soul lives forever; this I know,
God patiently tries, Heaven to show.
He’ll give ev’ry chance, your soul to save,
But ‘twill be no more chance after the grave.

It’s your decision, one you must make,
I pray that you, won’t make a mistake.
There are only two places you can go,
To glorious Heaven, or Hell below.

Just one ‘Key’ can open Heaven’s gate,
And that is Christ Jesus; don’t hesitate!
Believe God, accept Jesus this day,
And you’ll be Heaven bound; all the way.

Only Christ can save your soul from Hell,
You certainly don’t want there to dwell.
Christ is standing outside your heart’s door,
Open unto Him; and Heaven’s in store!

I’m not alone, a minute of the day.
My Lord is there, gentle and so near,
He’ll never leave; I’ve nothing to fear.

The sun starts to lower in the sky,
I’m not alone, if things go awry.
My Lord is there, with power and love,
To encourage and strengthen from above.

The stars and moon appear in the night,
I’m not alone, not out of His sight.
My Lord is there, for me, and for you,
So willing and loving, and so true.

I’m not alone, not at any time,
My Lord is there, with His love so fine.

Without Jesus’ help, how about you?

I’m not sorry Jesus calls me ‘friend’,
He’s always there, my needs to attend.
Always there, stormy weather or fair,
Blessing me with His love and care.

I’m not sorry I’m one of His fold,
He’s my Shepherd, and He will uphold.
He gives me living water and bread,
I’ll not go to Hell, but Heav’n instead!

I’m not sorry I opened the door,
To my dear Saviour, whom I adore.
Outside my heart, so patient to wait,
I finally saw His love and grace.

I’m not sorry some persecute me,
For loving and serving Him happily.
So very little, I do each day,
For all He’s done, I’ll never repay.

I’m not sorry I must bear my cross,
For without Him, I’d be a total loss.
The things I must give up are so few,
To have salvation, and love so true!

All because I have trusted Your dear Son,
Eternal life in Heaven, I have won!

I’M NOT WORTHY

So often, I do things I should never do,
I don’t feel worthy of His love so true.
Evil is present within me; deep inside,
The war is constant with the Spirit who abides.

I can feel the apostle Paul’s agony,
The torments he felt, are the same for me.
In Romans seven: fourteen thru’ twenty five,
Paul struggl’d with sin, the same as I do strive.

When I want to do right, I always do wrong,
The sin deep within me, is ever so strong.
On my own, I am rotten thru’ and thru’,
Yet the Spirit persuades, right things to pursue.

I feel torn apart, by the old me and the new,
If it were not for Christ, I could not continue.
I don’t feel worthy, when Satan does oppress,
Yet Jesus encourages, as He does bless.

My humble life is His, tho’ I’m unworthy,
How He could love me is a great mystery.
I’m suppos’d to imitate Him, in all things,
Yet evil takes hold, and that guilt surely stings.

How wretched I am, yet You chose sinful me,
That’s why I must serve You for eternity.
How I thank You Jesus, for what You have done,
Stand by me Lord, and help me, evil to shun.

Your awesome grace, compassion and mercy,
Give me the Gift, of life eternally.

You remember them no more, they’re gone and past.

My horrid sins, You remember no more,
One day I will live, on Heav’n’s blissful shore.
Face to face with You Lord, then I will walk,
And with all the all the many saints, I will talk.

I so realize, worthy I am not,
But Jesus paid the price, my soul He bought.
He set my soul free, when on the cross He died,
My Saviour, for me, for me, You were crucified.

For me, for me, You endured agony,
Precious Lord, how can I ever thank Thee?
This amazing kind of love, love so true,
This love precious Lord, comes only from You.

Lord, without You, I’m nothing at all,
On my own Lord, I stumble and fall.
I need Your strength, I need Your pow’r,
I can’t go without You, not ev’n an hour.

I’m nothing at all, without You near,
Without You my life, is just doubt and fear.
I need Your love, to encourage me,
Just thru’ You, can I have victory.

I’m nothing at all, a branch so dead,
You are the Vine, thru’ You, I am fed.
Without You Lord, it’s as dark as night,
But You can make the darkest path bright.

I’m nothing at all, no wisdom have I,
You must equip me, and knowledge apply.
I’m but a fool, if You’re not by my side,
I’m nothing at all, if You don’t abide.

I’m nothing at all, I couldn’t go on,
Without You I’d be, the devil’s pawn.
Satan would bind me, in darkness deep,
Without You Lord, it’s Hell that I’d reap.

I thank You Jesus, for all You have done,
By Your death on the cross, new life I’ve won.
I’m nothing without You, please stay close by,
My love and trust for You, I’ll not deny.

I’M SO GRATEFUL

God always was, always will be,
From way back, thru’ eternity.
Never changing, always the same,
I’m so grateful, I praise His Name.

God is righteous, just and true,
Not as the likes of me and you.
Always loving and merciful,
For all these things, I’m so grateful.

God is gracious and very kind,
Never does leave us in a bind.
Always truthful, never does lie,
I’m so grateful He is on High.

God is powerful and so pure,
Always trust Him, for He is sure!
He is all knowing, was always,
I’m so grateful He knows our ways.

Omnipresent is our God so great,
His Spirit this world does permeate.
He’s here, He’s there, He’s ev’ry where,
I’m so grateful He always cares.

Ignored Totally

Most people ignore God, totally,
As they walk the road, of the enemy!
These say they are “Christian,” but they lie,
No hypocrite can e’er, qualify.

To ignore God, is to disobey,
You can’t disregard Him, day after day.
You can’t pursue pleasure; me, me, me,
Ignoring God, is iniquity.

To neglect God, will bring on His wrath,
For you walk with Satan, on his path.
If you ignore totally, Christ the Lord,
Heav’n’s beauty will ne’er, be your reward!

Jesus said just a “few,” there will be,
That enter, Heav’n’s bliss and beauty.
The masses who scorn God, and Him ignore,
Will ne’er see the splendor, of Heav’n’s shore.

So many folks today, disregard,
Christ on the cross, and His Hand, nail scarr’d.
He died for us all, we must not ignore,
And just Jesus, can get us, thru’ Heav’n’s door.

Most people ignore God, totally,
As they walk onward, to eternity!
God’s very Presence, they simply reject,
Beware, just Jesus from Hell, can protect.

To ignore God, is stupidity,
For all walk, toward eternity.
Just Christ Jesus, can get you to Heav’n,
To all those who ignore Him, Hell is giv’n.

IN GOD’S EYES

The start of greatness is to be meek,
And in all things our God we should seek.
God uses the small in a large way,
The start of it all is to trust and obey.

To increase greatness we must be less,
Striving to serve Him, we will progress.
Christ’s sheep have two marks; the ears and feet,
They hear, they follow; ever so fleet.

Perfect greatness is to admit we’re nought,
With His precious Blood our souls He bought.
We’re nothing at all without the Lord,
He is much worthy to be adored.

“The beginning of greatness is to be little,
The increase of greatness is to be less,
The perfection of greatness is to be nothing.”

IN LIGHT OF ETERNITY

Let me live with eternity in mind,
To lost souls, don’t let me be blind.
Dear Lord, grant me love, and compassion too,
Grant me boldness, and ‘words’ to bring them to you.

Lord, I don’t think enough ‘bout eternity,
And all the lost ones, in Hell’s agony.
Grant me more love, that the Gospel I’ll share,
Exchange this hard heart, for one that does care.

Hell is a ‘place’ where ALL lost souls will go,
And forever, have nothing but sorrow.
Unending thirst, and eternal darkness,
Let me tell them of Christ; let me witness.

Let me have concern for all the lost souls,
Lord, let bringing the Gospel, be my goal.
Let me live in light of eternity,
Lord, grant me compassion, and mercy.

In light of eternity, let me live,
That the Good News of Jesus, I might give!
Let me show more love, from a tender heart true,
Please give me ‘words’ that might bring them to you!

Don’t let me be selfish with your great love,
Let me tell them ‘bout blissful Heav’n above!
Let me live in light of eternity,
Let me tell of ‘Salvation’, a GIFT so free!

IN SPIRIT AND TRUTH

In spirit and truth, we must worship Thee,
For Heav’n to be ours, for eternity.
Our worship must be, completely sincere,
And You, gracious Father, we must revere.

In spirit and truth, from deep down within,
We must truly repent, from all known sin.
We must mourn, and from our sin walk away,
Or true love from the Lord, we don’t display.

In spirit and truth, our worship must be,
We must imitate Christ, in humility.
Far, far away, we must cast off all pride,
If we want the Spirit, with us to abide.

In spirit and truth, and from a true heart,
Worship must be inward, or God will depart.
Rejoice with trembling, serve the Lord with fear,
Honor and praise Him, feel His Presence near.

True inward worship, begins in your heart,
Reverence the Lord, and from Him, don’t depart.
This awesome Being, your soul must obey,
Worship in spirit and truth, ev’ry day.

Sit, stand, kneel; repeat pray’r after pray’r,
Outward worship of God, disperses in the air.
Sacraments, rituals, vain customs too,
All are vain and void, and never help you.

In spirit and truth, our worship must be,
Or Heav’n won’t be ours, in eternity.
Jesus, He and He alone, is the only Way,
We must believe God, and trust and obey.

IN THE LINE OF DUTY

In the line of duty, it’s a fact,
Like our precious Jesus, we must act.
Doing only things that He would do,
A hard life we must live, this is true.

Love, compassion, generosity,
These things are in the line of duty.
When someone hurts us, we must forgive,
Then God will forgive us, as we live.

In the line of duty, we must bless,
Those who would curse us, or do oppress.
Be honest in the sight of all men,
Living peaceably, as God’s children.

Rejoice with all them that do have joy,
Never envy, nor their bliss destroy.
Be of the same mind toward others,
A meek, loving mind, to your brothers.

Patient in trials, rejoice in hope,
Continue in prayer, as you cope.
Quench not the Spirit, thank Him always,
In the line of duty, all our days.

In the line of duty, we must tell,
Of our wondrous Saviour; never quell!
We’re soldiers of Christ, we must do right,
Take a stand for Him; fight a good fight.

IN THE SHADOW OF HIS CROSS . . . Oct.2008 Message

In the shadow of His cross, I kneel,
The love He bestows, I truly feel.
I gave up all vanity and pride,
For only then, would Jesus reside.

In the shadow of His cross, I knew,
That I was one of his chosen few.
One of God’s children, Jesus made me,
Privileged I am, for eternity.

In the shadow of His cross, I saw,
Without Jesus, I was deeply flaw’d.
My sin had left a dark crimson stain,
In that life, I did not want to remain.

In the shadow of His cross, I’d face,
Hatred, persecution and disgrace.
The hated Jesus, they would hate me,
He told me so, ‘twas no mystery.

In the shadow of my Saviour’s cross,
I see all I have, and count it loss.
Things of this world, are not my treasure,
Christ is my All, He’s far beyond measure.

Many things I saw, as I knelt that day,
And He assur’d me of a better way.
He made things clear, as I did repent,
I know His grace will be sufficient.

IN YOU CAME

Your gentle nudges, I did not heed,
I truly thought: “You, I don’t need!”
Why should I give up those pleasing things?
That life in the ‘fast lane’ to me bring?

Gossip, cursing, lies, and blasphemy,
Cheating, stealing and immorality.
Drugs made me forget sorrow and pain,
Liquor, to me was such a great gain!

On my list, church was not number one,
Ball games and fishing were much more fun!
All night parties, with booze running free,
These were things, I wanted for me.

But Lord, You just kept tugging at my heart,
‘Twas plain; from these things I should depart!
But You let the choice completely up to me,
You’d not force me to turn from iniquity!

My soul seemed, to reach out to You,
My heart looked at life, from a diff’rent view!
Love from You was made, so very clear,
And I could feel Your Presence, ever so near!

Then into my heart, in a special way,
Willingly You came, that precious day!
When I opened the door, in You came,
Praise You Jesus, life is not the same!

IN YOUR WILL

In Your will Father, I know I must be,
Or I will not possess, serenity.
Peace, joy, contentment; come only from You,
If I stay in Your will, so wise and true.

I know Father, I must be in Your will,
For I long for blessings, my soul to fill.
Life without You, is confusion for sure,
I must be in Your wise will, to endure.

Life in this world, is vast uncertainty,
So many decisions, to make for me.
So often I choose, to go the wrong way,
‘Tis then I regret, I did not obey.

My disobedience, is not your will,
I won’t experience, blessings that thrill.
Staying in Your will, I won’t rouse Your wrath,
I must walk in the light, of that narrow path.

In Your will Father, I know I must be,
Or I won’t be with You, eternally.
Give me wisdom Father, to always choose right,
For I want to do, no wrong in Thy sight.

Incarnation Miracle

There is a Miracle, I know is true,
May I my friend, tell it to you?
Christ left the glory, and safety of Heav’n,
This GIFT from the Father, to us was giv’en!

Christ became a Man, one amazing morn,
God’s only begotten Son was born!
In a stable, with just cattle and sheep,
The mother and Babe, God safely did keep!

The stars up in Heaven, shown O so bright,
The angels of God, sang praises that night.
Mary pondered all these things in her heart,
As Baby Jesus’ life, on Earth did start.

Almighty God Himself, became a Man,
This was God the Father’s, salvation Plan.
God loves us so much, that He sent His Son,
When we believe in Christ, salvation’s begun.

He came to pay a debt, He did not owe,
To redeem us sinners, here on Earth below.
A sin debt, we could never, ever pay,
Thank You precious Saviour, You are the Way!

INCREASE OUR FAITH

Without faith, we cannot please our God,
We must BELIEVE, where ever we trod.
Faith is confidence He will fulfill,
ALL His promises, for it’s His will.

We must always TRUST Him, and His power,
He will come thru’ for us, at the right hour.
Sometimes we lose patience, and worry,
But God will come thru’ and grant victory.

We should not eat, the bread of sorrows,
Our precious faith, we should not bestrow.
Cast ALL your cares upon Him, ev’ry day,
For He shall grant grace, and light your way.

Trials and tribulations will abound,
Oft’ times thru’ Satan; Christians he’ll hound.
These bad times will do one of two things,
Turn you away from God; OR closer bring!

God will test our faith ev’ry now and then,
Will we be trusting, worthy, children?
God CANNOT lie; He’ll supply ALL our needs,
Will we lose faith? and not take heed?

We should not be troubled o’er many things,
Pray for more faith, and the peace it brings.
Lack of faith brings fear and sleeplessness,
Faith and trust in Him, brings blessedness.

O’ ye of little faith, why do you fear?
Would we hear these words from Christ so dear?
We must have faith that He’ll see us thru’,
We must increase our faith, both me and you.

Is It True?

Is it true that Jesus, is the only Way,
To arrive at the gate of Heaven, one day?
Millions think, there are many other roads,
That lead to the safety, of Heaven’s abode.

Is it true that Jesus, can give eternal life,
And also assistance, to keep us from strife?
So many people, the Lord Jesus deny,
They refuse to believe, and on Him rely.

Is it true unbelievers, arouse God’s wrath,
Because they stay with Satan, on his broad path?
Multitudes think God is just, a God of love,
They think everyone goes, to Heaven above.

Is it true that salvation, can be lost,
And that falling from grace, is the ultimate cost?
Folks around the world, believe this heresy,
And millions will wind up, in hell’s agony.

The Truth is, Christ Jesus IS the ONLY Way,
To reach the gate of Heaven, one day.
The Truth is, eternal life is for ever,
And NOTHING, from the Lord Jesus can sever.

The Truth is, our God is love, and I agree,
BUT, God’s wrath can send you, to Hell’s agony.
The Truth is, just a “few” will go to Heaven,
For the majority, Hell will be given.

Once you are God’s child, and in His family,
One day you will experience, Heaven, pleasantry.
Once you are saved, you are saved for always,
God’s great grace will be with you, all of your days.

IS JESUS THE MESSIAH???

Is Jesus the ‘Messiah’, the Anointed One?
Can He be the ‘Christ’, God’s only begotten Son?
Isaac tells, that a virgin would bear a son,
History agrees, yet He, the world does shun!

Mica tells, He’d be born in tiny Bethlehem,
Wise men came from the east, for His star told them.
Joseph and Mary from Herod, to Egypt, did run,
Hosea tells, God would call from Egypt, His own Son.

‘Tis told, He’d be despis’d and rejected of men,
He’d have grief and sorrows, o’er and o’er again.
When He came, most couldn’t see, to them it was dim,
He came to His own, but they wouldn’t receive Him!

David tell us, He’d be betrayed by a ‘friend’,
One of the twelve, did hand Him over in the end.
Zechariah tells, He would be sold for a price,
Judas did just that, and then fled into the night.

Psalms tells, many would hate Him without a cause,
When He came, their hate was ardent, and without pause.
Jesus tells, if we hate Him, we hate Jehovah too,
This for some is hard to grasp, but surely is true.

Jacob told many years back, when Messiah would come,
Judah lost rule, aft’ Shiloh came, their foe was Rome.
So many prophecies, Messiah did fulfill,
Why are His people still of that stubborn will?

He’s there, for one and all; all Gentiles, and all Jews,
And He can save your soul from Hell, ‘Wonderful News’!
There’s just one plan of salvation; that’s God’s Son,
It’s the same worldwide; the same plan for ev’ry one!

And agonizing pain, so very real?

Many tears flow, as you continue to cry.

There’s someone worse off, if you’d look around,
Troubles to many people, do abound.
Our faith must be steadfast, we must trust the Lord,
Let’s always stay close to Him and His Word.

We must remember as we go thru’ each day,

It Matters Not

As I walk with my Lord, Hand in hand,
I’ll follow Him and obey His command.
It matters not, just where He shall lead,
I’ll walk in faith, to Him I’ll heed.

Life’s narrow road, does get rough and steep,
If we walk in His Light, He will keep.
It matters not, the road blocks ahead,
As I walk in His Light, I’ll have no dread.

As I walk with my Lord, each new day,
I’ll walk in His footsteps, all the way.
It matters not to me, where we go,
My faith will lead me, as I follow.

At times I feel that I can’t go on,
But surging strength comes from God’s own Son.
It matters not, that I’m worn and weary,
Faith in Jesus, gives me victory.

As I walk with my Lord, I’m ne’er sad,
Great joy is within, that makes me glad.
It matters not, what others might say,
I’ll continue in faith, on Heav’n’s way.

IT MATTERS TO GOD

It matters to God what His children do,
He’s not indifferent to me or you.
Our weal or woe are of concern to God,
No matter where on this Earth we trod.

God knows our every grief and sorrow,
He is always near, now, and tomorrow.
Of your head, He knows the number of hairs,
Such a loving God, and One who cares.

It matters to God what His children say,
As we go on our Christian path each day.
We shouldn’t gossip, curse or tell lies,
And we shouldn’t any way, Christ deny!

God knows our every thought and deed,
To His children, He will always take heed.
He waits for us to come in prayer,
And He will answer you, for He does care!

It matters to God where His children go,
In this earthly life of joy or woe.
He wants for us to imitate His Son,
Take Christ with you as your day’s begun.

God shall supply our every need,
He knows our desires, He knows our greed.
We must trust Him completely, all our days,
For His love and care are with us always.

It Shall Be So For Eternity

Christ will come in the clouds, one special day,
And take me to my home, so far away.
My mansion awaits, in God’s great City,
And it Shall Be So For Eternity.

God’s wondrous City and street, made of gold,
What a marvelous place, I shall behold.
The City’s wall, is a structure of beauty,
And it Shall Be So For Eternity.

No sun or moon, in this City so bright,
God and the Lamb, shall provide all the light.
It’s always day, no night in this City,
And it Shall Be So For Eternity.

A river; water of life, from God’s Throne flows,
A place where there will be no more sorrows.
No more death, crying, no more pain for me,
And it Shall Be So For Eternity.

I look to the day when I leave this Earth,
To go to God’s House, of much greater worth.
Thank You Jesus, for what You’ve done for me,
I’ll praise You Lord, for now and eternity.

IT’S AMAZING!

It’s amazing, how God comes thru for me,
What e’er my problem, or calamity.
In a heartbeat, when I go in prayer,
At once, I feel His gracious Presence there!

It’s amazing, how good God is to me,
Wondrous blessings, He bestows abundantly.
The peace I have, way down deep in my heart,
Is a priceless treasure, just He can impart!

It’s amazing, just how much God loves me,
This awesome love that flows, ever so free.
He loves me so much, He sent His only Son,
To redeem my soul, and grant salvation!

It’s amazing, the grace He shows to me,
Grace I don’t deserve, yet given so free.
Compassion and forgiveness, comes my way,
Ever since I accepted, Christ that day!

It’s amazing, how God chose sinful me,
To be His child, for all eternity.
I’ll live in a mansion, that He did prepare,
And forever in Heav’n, His Home I’ll share!

Thank You Jesus!

IT’S NOT EASY

It’s not easy to apologize,
But this we must do, if we’re wise.
It’s not easy to forgive and forget,
But if we do not, we will regret.

It’s not easy to admit mistakes,
For our pride, we don’t want to forsake.
It’s not easy to think first, then act,
To control the tongue is hard; that’s fact!

It’s not easy for us to take advice,
And at times we will pay a great price.
It’s not easy to accept just reproof,
We bristle up, and become aloof.

It’s not easy to discern wrong from right,
Satan makes evil shams appear bright.
It’s not easy to run from temptation,
It’s been this way since the Creation.

It’s not easy, your conscience to obey,
Many things of beauty pull us away.
It’s not easy to have self control,
For this we should strive; it should be our goal.

It’s not easy to love when most hate,
Repay good for evil; it’s our fate.
We must please our Lord in all we do,
For we carry His Name, me and you.

IT’S SCARY

It’s scary how easy it is, to say yes,
To bad things that the Father, will never bless.
Evil thoughts, words and deeds, we must remove fast,
All wrong things in our lives, must be quickly cast.

It’s scary that at times, we think evil things,
The Father’s great displeasure, is what it brings.
We all must teach ourselves, to think just good thoughts,
If blessings from the LORD God, to us are brought.

It’s scary that all too oft, wrong words we say,
Bitter shame for us, the Father will display.
Blasphemy, cursing, gossip, lies, we must stop,
Or we’re headed for the bottom, not the top.

It’s scary how easy, wrong deeds can be done,
To please the Father, wicked deeds we must shun.
Hate must be cast out, and instead we must love,
If we desire God’s awesome blessings, from above.

It’s scary to think, about eternity,
Without Christ, you are the Father’s enemy.
But with Christ, you shall see Heavens’ grand shore,
Where we’ll live with our Saviour, forever more.

IT’S USELESS

It’s useless to go to God in prayer,
If you don’t confess your sins while there.
Repent and confess; His favor you’ll win,
God cannot stand to look on any sin!

It’s useless to go to God for guidance,
If you won’t listen, and keep your same stance.
When you ask Him to guide your path each day,
Take heed to the voice on your heart He lays.

It’s useless to ask Him to forgive sin,
If forgiveness of others you can’t win.
If you can’t forgive; God won’t forgive you,
So hard to achieve; but this we must do!

It’s useless to say we love when we hate,
God does know, and we won’t pass thru’ the gate.
Love must first be found deep down inside,
Love must abound; or He won’t abide!

It’s useless to ask, if you have any doubt,
For it won’t be giv’n, you’ll do without!
We must have faith, if we want to receive,
Faith pleases God, He loves when we believe.

It’s useless to go to God in prayer,
If you don’t know Jesus, if you don’t care.
We must worship and love Almighty God,
Or He’ll turn His back the wide world abroad.

IT’S YOUR DECISION . . . April 1997 Message

There’s a narrow path, rugged and steep,
And it goes down to canyons so deep.
This narrow road is just one of two,
In this life’s decisions, for me and you.

The other road is so smooth and broad,
Easier to travel; but away from God.
This life on Earth is where we decide;
Where in eternity, we will abide.

You’re at the junction; what will you do?
Just one can decide; and that is you.
Will you choose the narrow, rugged road?
Or the wide one, that leads to Hell’s abode?

Your soul lives forever; God does tell,
The decision is yours; where you’ll dwell.
The narrow path leads to Heaven’s gate,
And the broad road leads to Hell’s dark fate.
