Blessings From God

A CHILD OF THE KING

Oh, what a joy, I’m a child of the King,
It makes me so happy, I want to sing.
I’m so very wealthy, beyond compare,
An heir of salvation; with Christ I’ll share.

Heav’n awaits, with my loving Saviour there,
When I arrive, life on Earth will seem bare.
My home in Heav’n is reserved for me,
Jesus, my Saviour, has indeed set me free.

A child of the King, without any doubt,
It makes me so happy, I want to shout.
My eternal home is my Father’s Home,
I’ll be with Him for e’er, ne’er more to roam.

A child of the King, what a wondrous joy,
Not ev’n Satan, my happiness can destroy.
Only my Saviour can give this confidence,
Heav’n is my destiny; there’s no suspense!

A FRIEND IN DEED

A Friend in deed, is what Christ is to me,
Always there to help, and always lovingly!
In times of trouble, He always comes thru’,
At any hour, His friendship rings so true!

I’m Jesus’ friend; and I’m always in need,
And when trouble looms, my pray’r He will heed.
His great comfort is only a pray’r away,
For He will answer, any time of the day.

This Friend is what my soul needs, all the time,
And that’s what Christ is, with His love so fine!
He will never forsake; nor will He leave,
He’s there all the time; my soul need not grieve!

The love of earthly friends, quickly flies away,
Not like the love of Christ, that’s here to stay.
The warmth and cheer of friends, we fondly treasure,
Let us down at times; a loss we can’t measure.

Jesus is a Friend, not in word, but in deed,
And all my spiritual hunger, He does feed.
I’m glad He’s not here today, gone tomorrow,
But a true Friend, in all my joy or sorrow.

A STILL SMALL VOICE

A still, small Voice warns me when I sin,
Helps me resist, when trouble begins.
Tho’ Satan tempts with troubles galore,
A still, small Voice, my hopes restore!

A still, small Voice tells which roads to take,
When I obey, I make no mistake.
In life’s hard journey, I need a Guide,
This Voice advises, with Christ to abide!

A still, small Voice helps me run my race,
And tells me one day I’ll see His Face!
It tells me that I should persevere,
For my wondrous Lord is always near!

A still, small Voice impresses upon me,
Just thru’ Christ can I have victory.
For the Blood of Jesus justifies,
And that still, small Voice never lies!

A still, small Voice tells me I’m Heav’n bound,
This Voice to me, is the sweetest sound!
With Jesus, I’ll spend eternity,
And this will be bliss and ecstasy!

ABIDING  POWER

Abiding Power, so precious to me,
The “Anointing” of God, giv’n so free.       1 Jn.2:27

Glorify God, turn from iniquity.                   1 Co.6:19-20

Abiding Power, God has freely giv’n,
To each and all His children under Heav’n.          Ro.8:9
This vast Power the world cannot receive,           Jn.14:17
They can’t see or know Christ; and won’t believe.

Abiding Power, I am not afraid,                        Mt.28:20
He’s always with me to grant me aid.                Heb.13:5-6
God’s Spirit is with me, now, and always,         Jn.14:16
There for e’er, all of eternity’s days.                  2 Jn.2

Abiding Power God’s children can use,             Jn.15:4; Phil.4:13
Tho’ this ‘truth’, Satan will try to confuse.    Ep.6:12; 1 Co.11:13-15; 2 Co.2:11
God’s Spirit will teach, will guide and direct,      1 Co.2:13
He’s with us always, ready, to protect.               Ro.8:35-39; Mt.10:30-31

ACCESS TO GOD

Access to the Father can be direct,
But God’s own Son we must not reject.
Only Christ Jesus can justify,
On His love and mercy we can rely.

By faith are we saved, thru’ God’s grace,
All our wicked sins God does erase.
We are no longer God’s enemy,
We’re now His children, you and me!

We now have access to God’s great throne,
For Christ’s precious Blood did atone.
Direct access to God, day or night,
No matter our problem, or our plight.

To God, we have unlimited access,
He’ll answer our prayers, and He’ll bless.
Only Christ, this access can provide,
When in His vast power we do confide.

To God’s great throne you can have access,
And God will daily, abundantly bless!
Into God’s presence, by Christ alone,
In the Word of God, this is plainly shown!

All Storms Pass

The thunder roars, and the winds are fierce,
Such a storm; it seems my soul to pierce.
Lightening flashes, flood waters roll,
On my tired body, the storm takes its toll.

The sun rises, with the break of day,
The terrible storm, has passed away.
On the freshened grass, sunbeams are cast,
The horrid storm, is completely past.

Many great storms, may come in our life,
Bringing much turmoil, sorrow and strife.
But as a storm, our troubles shall flee,
All storms in life pass, you must agree.

Does One comfort, when a storm comes your way?
Can you feel His Presence, He displays?
Do you have joy, in the midst of pain?
Can you be free, from worry and strain?

When a bad storm, in life has arrived,
Your strength and wisdom, can be revived.
Take your troubles, to the Lord in prayer,
He's willing to help, and always there!

Jesus can help, those storms pass away,
His comfort and strength, maks a brighter day.
While troubles linger, so close to you,
Turn to Christ Jesus, to see you thru'.

No matter the storm, they all will pass,
Don't allow doubt and worry, to amass.
Jesus can take, all your fears away,
All storms pass, follow'd by a brighter day!

A tremendous blessing from God is knowing that He will NEVER leave or forsake us, no matter what! He will NOT take our trials and troubles away . . . but He will walk with us through them! We can literally feel His Presence! What comfort that is.

Hebrews 13:5-B . . . . . . I will never leave thee, nor forsake thee. (KJV)

ALL FOR THE LIKES OF ME

You left Heaven’s most splendid glory,
And came to Earth, for the likes of me.
You gave up comfort, for grief and pain,
That sinful me, might have eternal gain.

You left the beauty of Heaven above,
And came to man’s evil, all in love.
Tremendous sorrow and agony,
You did go thru’, for the likes of me.

You left Heaven, as great God and King,
And came to Earth, with simply nothing.
You became a humble Servant here,
For the likes of me, that I might not fear.

You left all of the Heavenly hosts,
Came to the sin, of the earthly coasts.
You left the praise and glory above,
And came down to the likes of me, in love.

You left it all; and here had no home,
Left riches; and in poverty, did roam.
Was not accepted, or recognized,
For the likes of me; ‘tis hard to surmise.

Wonderful Jesus, Saviour and Lord,
Died on the Cross, as told in your Word.
All done in great love, given so free,
To take sin away, from the likes of me.

AMAZING BUT TRUE

‘Tis amazing, but it is so true,
Our Creator God, loves me and you!
He sent His Son to die for our sins,
When we believe, eternal life begins!

‘Tis amazing, but it is so true,
When we believe, God forgives me and you!
God will condemn those who won’t believe,
Rejection of Christ, means Hell you receive.

‘Tis amazing, but it is so true,
We’ll be accountable, me and you!
A dreadful sin to God, is unbelief,
Rejection of Christ gives eternal grief.

‘Tis amazing, but it is so true,
Belief makes us God’s friends, me and you.
He will make us His child, and His heir,
And the joy of Heav’n, we’ll all share.

‘Tis amazing, but it is so true,
Reserv’d mansions await me and you!
When to Christ, we open our heart’s door,
Abundant blessings from Him will pour!

AMAZING GRACE

Amazing grace, set my burden’d soul free,
It granted me peace and serenity.
Almighty God revealed His awesomeness,
His children He does abundantly bless.

His amazing grace we do not deserve,
Yet in our ev’ry trial, God does observe.
His divine love and mercy does o’er flow,
‘Tis a privilege this awesome God to know.

What a joy to feel His amazing grace,
Now only slightly, but one day Face to face.
We’ll live in His majestic Home on high,
All who love and obey God, shall never die.

God’s amazing grace to us always flows,
He truly wants us His character to know.
He reveals Himself as we draw e’er so near,
As we fellowship with Him in reverent fear.

God’s amazing grace gives comfort and pow’r,
Ev’n in our most dreaded and woeful hour.
For Your encouragement, this child thanks You,
I thank You for Your exalted love so true.

‘Tis Your amazing grace that forgives me,
And that same grace gives me life eternally.
I thank You Lord, I praise Your Holy Name,
‘Tis by faith, Your amazing grace I claim.

AMAZING PEACE

The wonderful peace Your Presence brings,
Is truly, an amazing blessing!
As a gentle river, flooding my soul,
Peace came in, when I gave Christ control!

Amazing peace, way deep down inside,
When I allowed You, to be my Guide!
No turmoil nor strife, does my heart know,
Since the blessing of peace, You did bestow!

Amazing peace, You did give to me,
You set my heart and soul so free!
When I turned my all, over to You,
My whole life took on a diff’rent view!

Your Presence within, gives wondrous peace,
From sin’s bondage, my soul found release!
Such amazing peace, that’s here to stay,
What a blessing, an awesome display!

Amazing peace, as a river flowing,
Peace as a breeze, on a hot day blowing!
Thank You Lord, for this awesome blessing,
Peace from You dear Lord, so amazing!

This amazing peace, comes from You alone,
Without You Lord, it cannot be known!
This peace is mine, for eternity,
Only You, dear Jesus, hold the key!

AN AWESOME FEELING

Such a fantastic peace floods my soul,
No sadness this hour, will take its toll.
Such a close bond, I feel with my King,
Ne’er have I had a better blessing!

Closeness between God, and me alone,
Such a great feeling I’ve never known.
Ne’er has joy like this been in my heart,
I pray this feeling will ne’er depart.

Tremendous joy this closeness provides,
For I feel Your Presence, in me abide!
I truly love this closeness with You,
I wish it would come, each day anew.

This feeling comes from Your wondrous grace,
Sin’s burden, far away You have chased.
This awesome feeling, makes me glow,
A blessing indeed, this closeness to know!

Inexpressible closeness that I feel,
Seems that my whole heart and soul it heals!
For this awesome closeness, I thank You,
I know it comes from Your love so true.

I know this closeness, infrequently,
But soon I’ll know it, eternally!
My sin that blocks, ‘twill be no more,
For I’ll ne’er sin again, on Heav’n’s shore!

AN AWESOME PLACE

The Cross of Christ was a place of shame,
But for that purpose, our Saviour came.
That Cross was a place of self-sacrifice,
And the work He accomplished did suffice.

The Cross was a place of God’s mercy,
God sent His Son, to die, for you and me.
That Cross was a place of pow’r, complete,
The sins of us all, it can delete.

The Cross is a place of atonement,
Jesus’ Blood, alone, is sufficient.
That Cross is where Christ did intercede,
My friend, Christ Jesus is all we need.

The Cross is a place of great promise,
Giving us the hope of Heaven’s bliss.
That Cross is a place of justice sure,
Righteousness promised by Christ so pure.

The Cross of Christ is where we must go,
To avoid the verdict of Hell below.
Kneel at His Cross, Christ will cleanse your soul,
And will grant you Heaven as your goal.

An Open Door

Revelation 3:8 I know thy works: behold, I have set before thee an open door, and no man can shut it: for thou hast a little strength, and hast kept my word, and hast not denied my name. (KJV)

An open door stands, wide open to you,
Will your faith allow you, to walk thru’?
Or will you turn away, because of fear?
When to the Promised Land, you are so near?

Fear or faith, which will it be for you?
Will you back away, or walk boldly thru’?
The Promised Land, is on the other side,
Where we can in peace and comfort, abide.

Your enemies, God shall expel from your sight,
When we trust God in faith, He makes things right.
The Promised Land, God says we can possess,
If thru’ that open door, we do access.

That we love the Lord God, we must take heed;
Trusting Him in faith, is our greatest deed.
Backing away in fear, taking the wrong path,
Does sadden His Heart, and brings on His wrath,

Going thru’ that open door, brings good things,
God opens His warehouse, of grand blessings.
To turn and run away, is a bad mistake,
Fear causes you, the Lord God to forsake.

Eyes of faith, eyes of fear, which will it be?
Have you e’er considered, eternity?
Faith in God brings you, to the Promised Land,
Fear brings only Hell, God’s reprimand.

Beatitudes In Our Life

If you’re not “poor in spirit,” Hell awaits,
On your own, you’ll not access Heav’n’s gates.
Jesus you need, you must know in your heart,
Accept Him my friend, and never depart.

If you don’t mourn for sin, you have God’s wrath,
You are walking on a dark, dang’rous path.
You must instead walk, in God’s glorious Light,
Walking with Jesus, makes all things so bright.

You will not please God, if you are not meek,
Humbly, His love and mercy, you must seek.
Arrogance and pride, must not be your way,
You cannot inherit the Earth this way.

If you don’t hunger and thirst, for God’s Word,
Christ Jesus is not your Master and Lord.
In our spiritual life, we all must grow,
To have God’s blessings, to us always flow.

We must be merciful, this God reveals,
For God’s mercy to us, our soul does heal.
If we show mercy, mercy we shall obtain,
When we “do unto others,” we reap great gain.

Only the pure in heart, will e’er see God,
As on the Earth, the narrow road we trod.
Purity we have, comes from Christ alone,
This in God’s Word, is v’ry clearly shown.

If you argue and fight, you don’t strive for peace,
This wrong way of living, for you must cease.
You must instead, a peacemaker be,
Living each day, with love and humility.

If we are persecuted, for Christ’s Name,
As unbelievers abuse us, trying to shame.
We must remember, we are bless’d indeed,
Our blessings in Heav’n, will always exceed.

BEAUTY

As the beauty of morning flows out of Heav’n,
Lavishly fresh air and sunlight, God has giv’n.
The soft gentle breeze brings on the rain,
So many blessings, from God we attain.

The beauty of our God’s great forgiveness,
Is just one thing that comes from His goodness.
God’s grace is like the rush of a river,
There to aid us, forever and ever!

As the beauty of a wondrous rainbow,
His Promise He’ll keep, He wants you to know!
The dazzling sunset, only He can paint,
He gives joy and peace, to all His saints!

Such silent beauty, of a night so still,
And the far off cry of a whippoorwill.
Frogs in the marsh, to each other call,
God made all these beauties, for one and all!

Oft’ the beauty we seek far off, is near,
God gives happiness, causes us to cheer.
The dewy green grass, an exquisite floor,
And the flowers blooming, at my front door!

The amazing beauty of our Lord’s grace,
Christ filling my heart, ‘til I see His Face!
An awesome Saviour, God truly gave,
If we love and trust Him, He’ll surely save!

BEAUTY

Beauty is in the eye of the one that sees,
At times ‘tis so wondrous, I fall to my knees.
As I survey all the wonders God has made,
I stand in awe, for the beauty ne’er does fade.

Beauty of man comes from within the heart,
Outward beauty, as we age, will soon depart.
Beauty seen, is in part, in him who sees,
The best of beauty, from our eyes does flee.

Natural beauty is truth and honesty,
And God’s Creative work, all in harmony.
Beauty, like truth, is always best when plain,
True beauty greatens, but false, there’s no gain.

Beauty is true love, that comes from within,
You can’t be what you’re not; no need begin!
Beauty is justice and integrity,
True beauty simply can’t be, hypocrisy!

When I think of beauty, I think of my Lord,
And for all He’s done; He should be adored!
Jesus is true beauty, without and within,
Without Jesus, I’d be condemned for my sin!

BEAUTY OF CREATION

Bright and beautiful is the sunset’s rays,
Shadows lengthen, bringing a close to the day.
The sky is God’s canvas, for the sunset,
The Master Artist, portrays all so perfect!

Stars hid by the day, now the night reveals,
God’s handi-work has enormous appeal.
Creation’s beauty is an e’er present show,
As majestic mountain tops, cover’d with snow.

His beauty is in the grass at my feet,
In sunshine; and a baby’s face so sweet.
In a flower, as its petals open wide,
Revealing God’s faultless beauty inside.

We need not look for beauty far away,
God places it before you, ev’ry day!
He gives us beauty right outside our door,
The Master Artist, holds so much in store!

Many look for God, and say He’s concealed,
But, in all Earth’s beauty, He is revealed!
The heavens come alive, as lightening flames,
While so far away, stars write out His Name!

We need not go far, happiness to find,
Just open our eyes, and stop being blind!
Joy and peace and love; and contentment too,
God wants us to have these, both me and you.

When God created the world, He made a Way,
That we could live in the heights of Heav’n some day.
His Son is the answer, He holds the ‘key’,
To a “mansion” in Heav’n, for eternity.

We can only see the things in this world,
But one day, blissful Heav’n will be unfurl’d.
The beauty of this Earth, cannot compare,
To this awesome Place, God’s children will share.

BECAUSE OF CHRIST

Because of Christ, do I even dare,
Approach God’s Throne of Grace, way up there.
Without Jesus, I’m God’s enemy,
But by faith in Christ, God justified me.

Since I became a child of the King,
Abundant are God’s wondrous blessings.
Christ brough me into God’s family,
I’m an heir to life, eternally.

Because of Christ, I’ll enter Heav’n’s door,
And there for e’er, Jesus I’ll adore.
Because of Christ, my mansion awaits,
For just Christ has the key, to Heav’n’s gates.

Because of Christ, I’ll never see Hell,
In the Lake of Fire, I shall ne’er dwell.
Because of Christ, my sins are forgiv’n,
Because of Christ, I’m going to Heav’n.

Because Of Jesus

Just because of Christ, can I ever dare,
To approach God’s throne of Grace, way up there.
The barrier between, Jesus tore down,
And made it possible, for my future crown.

Because of Jesus, I have peace inside,
For His awesome Spirit, in me resides.
The world, this kind of peace, cannot give,
How I thank Him, as He helps me to live.

Just because of Jesus, worry is gone,
On His love, strength and wisdom, I have drawn.
Let us always take all out troubles to Him,
And the peace of God, will make all else grow dim.

I have great courage within, to go on,
Just because of Jesus, God’s only Son.
He increases my faith, day after day,
I praise my Saviour, each step of the way.

I have much confidence, I have no fear,
For my precious Jesus, is always near.
He will never leave me, nor e’er forsake,
This precious Promise, did our Saviour make.

Just because of Jesus, I have endless hope,
Light He gives, in darkness I no longer grope.
I claim His Promise, life eternally,
Just Jesus can give me, this victory!

Six grand things, no seven, I can name,
Because Christ Jesus, I trust and claim.
Such marvelous blessings, come my way,
From God’s storehouse, ev’ry single day.

God’s love, is the best blessing of all,
There to pick me up, each time I fall.
Hid loving-kindness, is amazing,
Nothing on Earth, can top this blessing!

Christ’s Presence is with me, e’er so near,
Removing my worries, and my fears.
What a grand blessing this is, indeed,
When to His loving will, I do heed.

The Father’s patience with me, ne’er ends,
Because His Holy Son, is my Friend.
The unwise world, simply cannot know,
This superb blessing, that God bestows!

 God’s faithfulness, is there all the time,
Day or night, and I can claim as mine.
God will always, be faithful to you,
If only righteousness, you pursue.

The pardon when I sin, is complete,
All my vile, ugly sins, He deletes!
Cast in the sea, of forgetfulness,
The Almighty God, surely does bless!

All our needs are supplied, so wisely,
For He watches o’er us, tenderly!
Body and soul, He blesses each day,
When we love and trust Him, and obey!

That great hope, of life eternally,
That blessing is assigned, O so free!
This hope is a feeling, deep inside,
That knows one day, with Christ we’ll abide!

BEING the BEATITUDES

If I’m poor in spirit, bless’d will I be,
The Kingdom of Heav’n, belongs to me.
If I mourn for my sin, I will be bless’d,
God will comfort me, put my soul at rest.

If I am meek, I’ll be bless’d by the Lord,
Any pride, out of my life, must be pour’d.
Bless’d I’ll be, if I hunger for what’s right,
For I’ll be fill’d, with the pow’r of His might.

To all around me, I must show mercy,
Because my Lord, has compassion on me.
I’ll be bless’d if Jesus makes my heart pure,
For I will see God; it’s certain and sure.

If I’m a peacemaker, I’ll be bless’d indeed,
And the Lord’s blessing, I surely do need.
If for Jesus’ sake, people persecute me,
My reward will be great, in eternity.

The Beatitudes make us like our Lord,
We should imitate Him, in willing accord.
We should never go along with the world,
Or God’s blessings to us, won’t be unfurl’d.

To the Lord, we are the salt of the Earth,
We must reach out to others, proving our worth.
Jesus is Light; so we too must be light,
A beacon in darkness, making things bright.

BELIEF IS A MIRACLE

Belief can be a miracle, true,
A miracle, that can happen to you.
It can change your life spectacularly,
Belief gives you life, eternally!

Believing God can erase all sins,
A miracle; that with faith, begins!
We are justified, by Christ’s precious Blood,
‘Not Guilty’ in Heav’n, by this wondrous Flood!

Belief; a miracle, that sanctifies,
By trusting His Word, that never lies!
Set apart to serve our awesome Lord,
Spreading the Gospel set forth in His Word!

Belief; a miracle, that gives a new heart,
A ‘new’ creature, with a brand new start.
Children of God, and with Christ joint heirs,
One day the bliss of Heav’n with God we’ll share.

Believing is a miracle; true,
This miracle can happen to you!
Receiving Jesus makes you God’s child,
From Hell, you will always be exiled!

Salvation is a ‘Gift’ God gives to you,
A miracle; reserved for a ‘few’.
But most, by unbelief walk away,
From the greatest miracle to come our way!

But, if you are wise, you’ll run to Christ for aid.
Christ offers abundant blessings, indeed,
If you will just admit, His help you need.

Thru’ bumps and bruises, Christ will not forsake,
If we walk with Him, blessings we’ll partake.
He doesn’t promise, to make troubles flee,

No matter your trouble, Christ is there,

Fiery trails could often come your way,

ALL people have burdens in their lives! NO one is exempt! BUT, it is ONLY God's "born again" children, those who believe Him (1 John 5:10-12), who will receive blessings of comfort, peace and joy from the Hand of God.

CALLED AND CHOSEN

Those called and chosen are privileg’d indeed,
For to Your Spirit, they do heed.
These “few” truly accept Your Son,
But most reject Christ, and Him they shun.

These that You call, open their heart wide,
So that the Saviour may come inside.
You touch these “few” in a special way,
As they come in pray’r, all thru’ the day.

So, so special are these very “few,”
For these all willingly, obey You.
It gives them great joy, Your touch to feel,
For Your awesome Presence, their soul does heal.

Called and chosen, an amazing thing,
For You reach out to these with special blessings.
Tho’ ev’ry one You call is unworthy,
Accepting Christ removes iniquity.

Many in the past, have felt Your Hand,
And You’ve blessed their efforts thru’ out the land.
Those You called that did not turn away,
Willingly love You, trust You and obey.

So many invitations, You do send,
It’s so sad that most, You do offend.
But the “few” who accept are privileg’d indeed,
For Your awesome touch, they did heed.

So very privileg’d and special, am I,
For the Lord’s call, I did not deny.
On my own, I’d never be worthy,
But praise God, His Son gave me victory!

I’m privileg’d to be one of the “few,”
For Lord, I believe and follow You.
You have touched me in a special way,
And I’ll be grateful, all my days!

CHILDREN OF GOD

As many as receive Jesus as Lord,
Will be God’s children, as told in His Word!
Born not of blood, nor flesh, nor will of man,
But born of Almighty God; ‘tis His plan.

As many as are led by God’s Spirit,
Are sons of God, when to Christ they submit.
The spirit of bondage to fear is shed,
The spirit of adoption has come instead.

If we are children in God’s family,
We are then heirs of God for eternity!
Joint-heirs with Christ, God’s well beloved Son,
Who was with God, ‘fore this world was begun!

We are heirs to eternal life in Heav’n,
Heirs to the promise, so long ago giv’n.
If we be Christ’s, then we’re Abraham’s seed,
Faith is counted for righteousness; faith we need!

As many as receive Jesus to save,
Are children of God, ev’n past the grave!
We are justified by grace, heirs of hope,
Eternal life is ours, no need to grope.

How to be a child of God: John 1:12-13; 3:3-9; Rom.8:14; 2 Cor.6:18; Gal.4:7; Phil.2:15; 1 John 3:1 IF you are a child of the devil, God will NOT bless you. See: Mat.13:38; John 8:44; 1 John 3:10.

Christ Will Be There

Christ will be there, in your time of need,
Answer to your pray’r, He’ll send with speed.
He’ll give comfort, in your time of pain,
His loving Presence, is such great gain.

Christ will be there, any time you call,
His outstretched Hand, is there if you fall.
He gives such great peace, deep down inside,
For His Holy Spirit, does abide.

Christ will be there, when you need His pow’r,
He can give great strength, at any hour.
He nourishes us, for He is the Vine,
What joy it gives me, to know He’s mine!

Christ will be there, any time, any where,
When we go to Him, in earnest pray’r.
Faithfulness like His, is very rare,
O how He loves us, and truly cares.

When troubles come, He’s always close by,
With awesome comfort, He’ll not deny.
His Presence is with us, ev’ry hour,
Granting us always, love, wisdom and pow’r.

CHRIST, OUR ANCHOR

Jesus is our Anchor; firm and sure,
Placing trust in Him, makes us secure.
Whatever storms Satan brings our way,
Christ will keep you tethered, night and day!

Our Anchor is Jesus’ righteousness,
Accept Him, sin is gone; God does bless!
Only His righteousness justifies,
In God the Father’s Almighty eyes!

His precious Blood will always avail,
Our stable Anchor that will not fail!
Blood He shed willingly, on that Cross,
Without that Anchor, we’re at loss!

A trustworthy Anchor is His love,
Without a doubt; we’re bless’d from above.
Unmerited love; for you and me,
Our Anchor’s secure, for eternity!

Many fierce storms and raging waves, high,
We need an Anchor; we can’t deny!
Only Christ can be our Anchor sure,
Just He can help you, storms to endure!

COME AS YOU ARE

You need God, this, He wants you to know,
He desires that your joy will o’er flow.
Turn to Him now, He’s not far away,
He waits to hear from you, this v’ry day.

Go to Him, like a beggar so poor,
He wants you to call on Him, this is sure.
God asks only one thing; to believe,
Without faith, not one, will He receive.

Go to Him now, with both hands empty,
God hates pride; go in humility.
The only thing full, should be your heart,
Full of remorse; then from sin, depart!

He’s waiting this day, so patiently,
He does not want you as His enemy.
God wants you to come; just as you are,
‘Whosoever’ means you, from near and far.

Young or old; in sickness or in health,
A poor lonely beggar, or man of wealth.
God offers salvation, thru’ His Son,
Believe and repent; Heav’n will be won!

Nor fitness for the Heav’nly Home,

Come, with all your troubles and fears,
With breaking heart and falling tears.
With all your sins and no wisdom,
Just come as you are He cries, Come!

He bore our sins on Calvary,
He paid the price for you and me.
Pardon waits, and our Heav’nly Home,
Just come as you are He cries, Come!

Come, at the Cross your burden leave,
Repent for all your sins; do grieve.
Just count as dross your earthly gain,
Come as you are, He will sustain.

Come, Come, without money or price,
Christ paid the supreme sacrifice.

To me, to "come as we are" is one of the greatest blessings possible! Think about it! Jesus paid it all for us! There is NO price to pay to inherit eternal life! There is NOTHING that we must do . . . except BELIEVE God! Heaven is wide open to "whosoever" believes God!

John 3:15-16 That whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have eternal life. [16] For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. (KJV)

Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that heareth my word, and believeth on him that sent me, hath everlasting life, and shall not come into condemnation; but is passed from death unto life. (KJV) As soon as you BELIEVE God . . . you HAVE (hath) everlasting life.

COMPLETELY FREE

Completely free, life eternally,
It’s a Gift from God, to you and me.
We begin with the Gift of God’s Son,
Accepting Christ, salvation’s begun!

Completely free, are all God’s blessings,
Consider His grace, so amazing.
Abundant mercy, and wondrous love,
He sheds on His children, from above.

Completely free, His Spirit He gives,
Who guides and directs us, as we live.
Wisdom and strength, the Spirit provides,
There in a heartbeat, for He resides.

Completely free, access to God’s Throne,
For the Blood of His Son, did atone.
A wondrous thought, we are justified,
God hears,  our prayers won’t be denied.

Completely free, wondrous peace within,
Also free, forgiveness of our sin.
The hope of eternal life is great gain,
For we know God’s Promise, does remain. 

Completely free, all God does for us,
Because of Christ, to Him we’re precious.
When it is time, and God’s call we hear,
There will be nothing, for us to fear.

ENOUGH TO GO AROUND

God’s love is sufficient, it abounds,
There’s always enough to go around!
But, just thru’ Christ can it come to you,
Love overabundant and always true!

There’s enough to go around, always,
‘Tis continually ample all our days.
To this love, just Christ can give access,
Entrance to the Father, so He can bless!

Enough to go around, each single day,
God’s wondrous love, an amazing display!
Available only thru’ His Son,
When you trust Christ, it’s just begun!

Enough to go around the whole world,

To experience this blessing, for always!

His love will be enough to go around!

Consider the love of God! What a tremendous blessing!
Abundant and always available to God's children!

FILLED

When Christ came into my heart; something chang’d,
Ev’ry detail of my life, was re-arrang’d.
Before, there was turmoil, hatred and sadness,
Now, there’s serenity, love and gladness!

I am fill’d with the promis’d Holy Ghost,
Fill’d with love and pow’r, to the uttermost.
He takes away strife, and troubles that grieve,
And yet one more promise: He’ll never leave!

Our God of Hope, has fill’d me with great joy,
A wondrous feeling, I truly enjoy.
This happens only thru’ the Holy Ghost,
His pow’r is there for us, at no cost!

My soul is fill’d with remarkable peace,
And because of Christ, it will never cease.
Because of my faith; God show’d me His grace,
One day soon, I’ll certainly see His Face!

I’ll be fill’d with His sweet peace forever,
No one --- anywhere, this peace can sever.
I can go on, and bear life’s discord and care,
For I know Christ’s Presence is always there!

I thank You for this gift, gladly knowing,
That You will fill me, to overflowing,
With peace, joy, contentment and love,
‘Til that precious day when You call me above!

Having Christ in your heart and life is an awesome blessing!

FOR ME!

Under a dark, looming Eastern sky,
A humble Man, stumbled forth to die.
In the midst of a crowd, shouting with glee,
This Man went forth, to die for me!

A crown of thorns pierced His precious Head,
His Blood reveal’d ev’ry step He tread.
He bore that cross in pure agony,
As this Man went forth, to die for me!

They drove nails into His Hands and Feet,
After many hours that they scourged and beat.
Naked He hung in complete humility,
This Man consented to die for me!

On that awful cross, my sins He did bear,
A burden He asked no one to share!
All this He did out of love so free,
This awesome Man --- He died for me!

Because of this Man; great blessings are mine,
Peace, joy, comfort, grace, and strength divine!
But, best of all, life eternally,
For Christ Jesus gave His Life for me!

For me! For me! this awesome Man died!
For me! For me! He was crucified!
For me! His death was pure victory!
For it gives me Heaven eternally!

I dearly love this poem!

What about you? Are you one of the "few" that accepts
His Sacrifice on the cross . . . for you?

FOREVER MINE

Forever mine, are blessings untold,
Blessings from God, worth more than pure gold.
Blessings are mine, because I believe,
And by faith, God’s Son I did receive.

Eternal life in Heaven above,
Is mine because of my Saviour’s love.
The burden of sin, remov’d from me,
My sins are forgiv’n, eternally.

Such awesome peace within me abides,
For God’s Holy Spirit does reside.
Forever mine, He’s always there,
Proof of God’s love; proof that He cares.

Forever mine, Jesus’ great Light,
Guiding me safely, thru’ dark lonely nights.
His Promise that He will always be near,
Makes my worry gone, I’ve nothing to fear.

Forever mine, is abundant joy,
From Christ to me, that no one can destroy.
Like a gentle river, thru’ me does flow,
Forever mine, for God does bestow.

The love of God is forever mine,
Such wondrous love that truly does shine.
Faith too is there, when doubt tries to creep,
From Satan’s wiles, He surely will keep.

Forever mine, His amazing grace,
Sufficient always, in time or place.
Forever mine are blessings untold,
Blessings that to me are worth more than gold.

FRIENDS ARE BLESSINGS

Friends are blessings from God above,
Which He gives to His children, in love.
Friends are something money can’t buy,
No matter your wealth, don’t ev’n try.

Friends are there, when them you do need,
Others abandon, but friends take heed.
Friends really care, what happens to you,
With love and compassion, always true.

Friends will share your hurts and sorrow,
Will cry with you, now and tomorrow.
Friends are there too, to share your joy,
Happy for you, and they’ll ne’er destroy.

Friends will ne’er turn their back on you,
Always to you, they will be true.
Friends are there to help in your need,
Sent by God in love, on wings of speed.

Friends will love, when others hate,
Such true love, you can’t duplicate.
Friends are blessings from God above,
Sent to warm us with their deep love!

True friends are hard to come by! Most so-called friends are there for you only if they can benefit from you in some way. So sad! If you have a true friend, you are blessed indeed! Always remember . . . the Best Friend that you will ever have is JESUS!!!

GIFTS FROM YOU

Lord, I thank You for the gifts from You,
Your grace saved me; not anything I do!
Lord, I confess my unworthiness,
With a humble heart, I ask You to bless.

NO pow’r can keep Christ’s love from me,
Lord, I’m grateful that Truth set me free!
I praise and thank You for Your awesome love,
And that one day I’ll share Your Home above!

This inward peace I feel, deep inside,
As I truly sense Christ’s Spirit abide!
Wondrous peace I never had before,
I’m so grateful I opened, my heart’s door!

The joy Christ grants is a blessing indeed,
‘Tis so true that He, supplies our needs.
In Thy Presence; pleasures for e’er more,
Abundant, grand gifts, He holds in store!

Hope is yet another gift so grand,
That comes from Christ’s loving, willing Hand!
My mansion in Heaven, waits for me,
For God has promis’d, life eternally!

All of these gifts, will only begin,
When we turn TO Christ, and away from sin!
God gives us His Son, The GIFT supreme,
On Him we can base all our hopes and dreams!

Wondrous gifts, from our Father above,
Giv’n to His children, with such great love.
Marvelous gifts of love, we don’t deserve,
Gifts of love He gives, when Him we serve.

One fine gift is His amazing grace,
Our horrid sins, He’ll completely erase.
With our simple faith, His gifts begin,
By accepting Christ, God’s pleasure we win.

God’s awesome gift of peace, floods our soul,
Revealing to us, He’s in control.
God’s spiritual gifts, are better than gold,
And out of His abundance, they do unfold.

Another gift of love from God, is joy,
A deep within feeling, no one can destroy.
Knowing in your heart “I’m going to Heav’n,”
This wondrous gift of love, from God is giv’n.

All God’s gifts of love, give us contentment,
And all of them rely, on our commitment.
We must trust Christ with our all, always,
To receive God’s gifts of love, all our days.

All God’s gifts of love, with Jesus begin,
We must accept God’s GIFT of Christ, within.
Acceptance of Him must come from our heart,
And when He comes in, He’ll ne’er depart.

This poem came to me when I was visiting a dear and true friend, Ruby Cavin in Arkansas. She was 95 years old when she passed away a few years ago. I still miss her. But I know I'll see her again one day!

GOD CARES FOR ME

The path ahead is not always clear,
But He’s by my side; I’ve nought to fear.
Sharp bends in the path; I cannot see,
But He guides me on; God cares for me!

So many folks in life, will deceive,
Even ‘friends’ can cause your heart to grieve.
Things that seem to be right, may not be,
But He shows me truth; God cares for me!

Trials and temptations ev’ry day,
But He is always near, come what may.
Violent storms of life rage close to me,
But what a wonder; God cares for me!

No nagging doubt; just joy and peace,
This contentment will only increase.
From fear and worry God keeps me free,
And of this I’m sure; God cares for me!

GOD TELLS IT STRAIGHT

Christ is the ‘Door’ to Heaven’s domain,
Without Him, in Hell, you will remain.
Only thru’ Christ will you be saved,
Trying without Him; you’re depraved.

Christ is the ‘Way’, the ‘Truth’, and the ‘Life’,
Without Him, evil and sin are rife.
No man can get to God on his own,
Tho’ most follow paths, Satan has shown.

Christ is the only ‘Name’ giv’n to men,
Only He can save, from way back when!
No other ‘name’ under Heaven is giv’n,
You must go thru’ Christ, to reach Heaven!

Christ is the only ‘One’ to give grace,
Without Him, we’ll NEVER see God’s Face.
Only the grace of our mighty God,
Can save us from Hell, as Earth we trod.

Christ can justify us, in God’s eyes,
Thru’ the Blood He shed, when they did crucify.
ONLY thru’ His precious Blood alone,
Can our great sin e’er be atoned.

Do you know Christ as Saviour today?
God’s Word plainly tells; ther’s NO other way!
God won’t hide things; but tells us so straight,
You must go thru’ Christ, to reach Heav’n’s gate!

GOD’S AMAZING GRACE

The amazing grace of God in Heaven,
Has all my sins freely forgiven.
When I believed and trusted His Son,
Eternal life for me had just begun.

I was so deep in sin, plain and true,
Only God’s grace could have seen me thru’.
He sent His only Son to save my soul,
Rescuing me from Satan’s control.

God’s amazing grace, His love divine,
Saved from Hell, that wretched soul of mine.
This love so wonderful, so true indeed,
‘Tis there for whosoever, is in need.

The amazing grace of God freely flows,
To all humanity, here in our woes.
Divine and excelling, is God’s great love,
It flows so abundantly from above.

Nought can compare, to God’s amazing grace,
It shall sustain us, ‘til we see His face.
Just He can save us from the pits of Hell,
And grant entrance to Heav’n, where He dwells.

GOD’S CARESSING LOVE

Our very soul, God’s love does caress,
Loving us always, He’ll always bless.
Surrounded by His love; His children are,
They’re WHOSOEVER, both near and far.

Caressing love; it’s so very real,
I feel it always, as I humbly kneel.
His caressing love is always near,
No matter my plight, I’ve nought to fear.

I feel this love, when He forgives me,
That sin is gone, from it I am free.
Caressing love, from my Father who cares,
There in a heartbeat, in my prayer.

His gentle touch, caresses my soul,
For this love, I gratefully extol.
Such a blessing, this caressing love,
It can come only, from God above.

GOD’S GOODNESS

God’s goodness includes His awesome love,
He sent us His Son, from Heav’n above!
To save the world, for eternity,
From God’s great wrath, and sin’s penalty.

God’s goodness is shown, in forgiveness,
Pardon is but one way, He does bless!
If we confess our sin, He’s so true,
To cleanse from all wrong, both me and you.

God’s goodness is clear; He will justify,
But we must trust Christ, and never deny!
Christ’s precious Blood, saves us from God’s wrath,
Accepting Christ, is the one right path!

God’s goodness has too, wondrous mercy,
Forever there, for you and me.
On us all, He has great compassion,
Because we have believed, in His Son.

God’s goodness has grace, so amazing,
Salvation of our soul, it does bring.
Heav’n is accessed, by God’s grace alone,
By believing, Christ’s Sacrifice did atone.

God’s goodness, is unmistakable,
And His loving-kindness, bountiful.
When by faith, we accept our precious Lord,
God’s goodness from us, will NOT be barr’d.

GOD’S GRACE

The Lord does shower His children with grace,
No good thing shall He withhold from our face.
God’s grace is abundant; with truth and love,
So we’ll be granted entrance to Heav’n above.

Our God is full of compassion and grace,
So patient; He wants our sins to erase.
He’s merciful and gracious, slow to rage,
Friend, this is what we should use as our gauge!

Gracious is the Lord; and righteous, and pure,
With Him beside us, we’ll always endure!
He preserves the simple; helps when we’re low,
But when we try without Him; it’s all woe!

The Lord is gracious, so good to us all,
And He waits patiently for us to call.
He giveth more grace to those who are meek,
But resists the proud, for Him they won’t seek.

The Lord waits; that He may give grace to you,
This favor is yours, if to Him you are true!
Rend your heart in repentance, turn to God,
In His grace He’ll forgive each one abroad.

Hate evil, love good; be just in your life,
Seek good, not bad, that you won’t have strife.
The law was of Moses, grace by our Lord,
Accept Christ, you’ll be with God in accord.

God’s grace goes far, to reach both me and you,
Christ died for our sins; to us He’s so true!
Thru’ the grace of our Lord, you can be saved,
But if you reject Him, you’ll be depraved.

More grace He will send to give victory.
When your heartache is more than you can bear,
God so quickly sends love, to show He cares.

When you agonize, because of much pain,
The grace of God, is a tremendous gain.
When the cry of your anguish, rises high,
God will hear, your request won’t be denied.

Upon the precious Lord, your burden cast,

Then God’s fantastic love, you have won!

GOD’S WORD

God’s Word has great and dreadful enemies,
Indiff’rence, neglect, hate, hostilities.
The grass will wither, the flower fades away,
But God’s mighty, pure Word, is here to stay!

Indiff’rence is no concern for His Word,
People must think: “There is no God, no Lord.”
If they’d just think: “After this life ---- what then?”
Friend, let God tell you, His Word never ends.

Some ignore and neglect His pow’rful Page,
Enjoy life; go with the flow; seems the rage.
Have they consider’d: “Is there more to come?”
Friend, this Earth is not your eternal Home.

There’s some, who the Word will slander and hate,
These shall not enter into Heaven’s gate.
They’re on the slippery path to below,
Friend, God’s Word very clearly, tells us so!

Some have great hostility and ill will,
They oppose God, never getting their fill.
Satan works so hard to go against God,
Keeps tempting you and me, the world abroad.

As each generation comes, then does pass,
It seems more to Satan, flock all the mass.
More wicked the world, with each passing day,
But it’s a fact; God’s Word is here to stay.

GOD’S WORD IS A TREASURE

God’s Word is a treasure; each Promise a pearl,
The more that you study, the more He unfurls.
A spiritual gold mine, for one and for all,
Rich and poor alike, the big and the small.

I am an heir with all those who fear Thy Name,
This is so much better than earthly fame.
Thy testimonies always rejoice my heart,
A wonderful way, each new day to start.

God’s Holy Word, is a Treasure to me,
For it has led me to life eternally!
It turned me from darkness to glorious light,
All my horrid sins are now gone from His sight.

Of the heav’nly inheritance, I will partake,
For Christ Jesus, my Saviour; I did make.
Jesus is there, my “mansion” to prepare,
Reserved in my name, for He truly cares.

My treasures are where no one can steal,
But the world considers them to have no appeal.
I count all to be lost, except Christ my Lord,
My utmost Treasure, whom I found in God’s word.

What is your greatest treasure this day?
If it’s a worldly thing; it’s not here to stay!
If it’s God’s Word, and His precious Son,
Eternal blessings for you have just begun!

GOD’S GIFTS

God gives us many gifts; all so free,
As we press on to eternity.
Accept or reject them; we can choose,
God’s favor is there, to win or lose.

The first Gift God gives, is Christ, His Son,
For Christ is, eternal salvation.
Christ will open to us Heav’n’s door,
Where a reserv’d mansion, waits in store.

This Gift God gives; life eternally,
God offers to all, both you and me.
The choice, God leaves completely to us,
There is no worldly gift, so precious!

Forgiveness too, is an awesome gift,
The burden of sin, I feel God lift!
An amazing God, with gifts so rare,
He gives us these gifts, because He cares!

God gives us His Spirit, who abides,
And in Him, we can always confide.
“Tis a Gift of God Himself, within,
Helping us to live a life without sin.

Remarkable peace deep in my heart,
A gift God gives, that will not depart.
Wondrous peace, such a comfort to me,
A grand feeling of serenity.

Great joy seems to overflow my soul,
Ev’n great sorrow cannot take it’s toll.
This gift comes only from God alone,
And ‘tis thru’ His love that it is known.

God’s gifts so precious, God’s gifts so free,
But God leaves the choice up to you and me.
ALL God’s gifts start with Gift Number One,
We must accept Christ, God’s well lov’d Son!

HE’S IN CONTROL

The lonely call of the whippoorwill,
In the shadows of a night so still.
Stars sparkle brightly, so far away,
The pale moon light, on the lake does play.

The light of dawn comes, as night recedes,
Another day begins to proceed,
Soft rays of sunlight, thru’ pastel clouds,
Removes the night’s dark, dreary, shroud.

A wondrous morning, dewy and bright,
Beautiful birds, their songs do recite.
Pretty flowers, trees and grass are green,
Showers from Heaven makes all so clean.

Many different creatures God made,
Some live in deserts; some in the glade.
From a huge whale, to a tiny insect,
Our Creator makes all; so perfect!

God placed the Earth, on nought at all,
Yet nary once, did it ever fall!
He ordains all in the universe,
Praise be to Him! just He can disperse.

And your strength was gone, you felt weak, not strong?
Did you ask for help, or go it alone?

Does the road you’re trudging, seem all uphill?
Are your tired legs weak, with no pow’r to fill?
Did you take it to Christ, ask Him for aid?
He’s there for you, when you can’t make the grade.

Has funds been low, but bills keep piling high?
There’s no peace within, all you do is cry?
Have you thought, maybe Christ could assist?
He’s there for you, you should cease to resist.

Have daily cares and worries, pressed you down?
Do you rarely smile, but just wear a frown?
Jesus could make things easier for you,
He’s there for you, and He will see you thru’.

A dark cloud could have, a silver lining,
Ev’n worst troubles, could end with a blessing.
Many great Promises, to us He makes,
He’s there for you, He will never forsake.

Christ won’t make all your troubles go away,
But He’ll walk with you, each step of the way.
His yoke is easy, and His burden light,

HIS PRESENCE

This earthly life will always be bright,
When our hearts, by Jesus, are made right.
If we walk where He guides us, each day,
Burdens will be lifted, along the way.

If we were to walk, on a city street,
That’s O so busy, with so many feet,
He’s there, no matter how huge the crowd,
And His Voice is soft, tho’ theirs is loud.

If you walk on a lone mountain path,
Out away from man’s, unholy wrath.
All you hear is a bird’s cheery song,
His Presence is there, as you stroll along.

No matter where you go, or what you do,
His Presence will always be with you.
An awesome feeling, to know He’s there,
His amazing grace, shows He does care.

His Presence, so much peace provides,
For we know He’ll always lead and guide.
His Presence, is from God, a blessing true,
A great privilege we have, me and you.

If you don’t know Jesus, you miss so much,
You’ll never know His love, or tender touch.
The bliss of Heaven, you will never see,
For Christ Jesus, holds Heaven’s only key.

Do you want His Presence, e’er so near?
Do you want Him, to comfort and cheer?
Open the door, to your heart today,
And Jesus will help you with each new day.

HIS PROMISES

Tho’ I may live only one more hour,
I trust the Lord Jesus’ saving pow’r.
He made a Promise, with Him I’ll be,
In His heav’nly home, eternally.

My Saviour can’t lie; so I have no fear,
I feel His Presence, e’er so near.
He promis’d He’d not forsake nor leave,
So why should my poor, heart and soul grieve?

He promis’d one day He’d resurrect,
This vile body, to one so perfect.
I’ll be like Him, in the blink of an eye,
On all His Promises, we can rely!

His angels will carry us to Heav’n,
Comfort comes, from Promises He’s giv’n!
Absent from the body, present with the Lord,
This priceless Truth comes from God’s Holy Word!

If we know Jesus, we have access,
To the gates of Heav’n; ‘tis a Promise!
We need not ever, have any fear,
For the comfort of Christ, is always near.

HIS SAVING GRACE

Do you one day want to see God’s Face?
Then you must receive His saving grace!

Then wondrous salvation we achieve!

His saving grace can relieve all fear,
But just thru’ our faith, will it appear!
Trust and believe God with all your heart,
His saving grace makes all fears depart!

Tho’ many burdens and trials we face,
Our God is there, with His saving grace!
We’ll encounter temptations ev’ry day,
But God’s saving grace, He does portray.

The devil does lay some crafty snares,
But God’s saving grace is always there!
Tho’ backs are bent ‘neath a heavy load,
Praise Him! Saving grace, He has bestow’d!

Of His saving grace, we’re NOT worthy,
Yet faith brings it, to both you and me!
His saving grace, a ‘GIFT’, beyond compare,
He gives abundantly, because He cares!

HIS  SHEEP

Surrounded by wolves, are the Lord’s sheep,
But we have a ‘Shepherd’ who never sleeps.
Safe in the fold, for He is the ‘Door’,
He keeps us from harm Satan has in store.

We are His sheep, soiled and dirty,
But we are His, for eternity.
We can’t do anything on our own,
Without our ‘Shepherd’ we’d only groan.

He gives food and rest in green pastures,
He’ll lead us beside calm, still waters.
Just He, our soul can refresh and restore,
And guide us gently home to Heav’n’s shore.

We are just like sheep, who have much fear,
We turn and run, when danger comes near.
With His rod and staff, our Shepherd’s there,
He comforts and leads, He truly cares.

If you don’t know our Shepherd today,
His own precious life, for you, He did pay.
Whoever you are, or where you’re from,
He is bidding you, to God’s fold, “Come”.

HIS UNSEEN HAND

His unseen Hand guides me as I go,
Ev’n if the path is steep and narrow.
He guides me safely to the summit,
But I must trust Him ev’ry minute.

His unseen Hand leads me all the day,
Patiently guiding an unknown way,
Tho’ I cannot see what lies ahead,
I have trusted Him; there is no dread!

His unseen Hand, so gentle and kind,
Always loving; not leaving me behind!
Tho’ I may have sorrow, hurt, or pain,
He’ll not forsake; He’ll always remain!

His unseen Hand will comfort when I die,
And lead me to my Home on high.
He’ll wipe tears away, for ever more,
In His wondrous House, on Heaven’s shore.

One day soon I’ll be on the other side,
But I must trust Him, and in Him abide.
His unseen Hand; what astounding grace,
For one day soon, I’ll see Jesus’ Face!

For Christ Jesus, my KING, takes care of me!

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!

THANK YOU JESUS!!!

I FEEL YOUR POWER

Lord, I feel Your power, ev’ry day,
As abundant blessings, come my way.
You lead me, direct me, and You guide,
And my needs, You graciously provide.

Lord, I feel Your power, when I’m weak,
You never fail me, when you I seek.
I feel Your strength surge, thru’ my fragile frame,
As I humbly cry out, to Your Name.

When Satan attacks, I feel Your pow’r,
Lord, You are on call, at any hour.
Satan’s fiery darts, cannot penetrate,
The shield before me, which is my faith.

Lord, I see Your power, all around,
Nature discloses, with sight and sound.
Beauty You’ve made, in Earth, sea and sky,
Assures me that on You, I can rely.

When I consider, Your awesome pow’r,
That one day shall make, all wicked to cow’r.
Lord, It’s so amazing to me,
That I’ll live with You, eternally.

I experienced, Your great pow’r, one day,
A bolt of lightning, came my v’ry way.
It didn’t hit me; but O so near,
With such speed, I had no chance to fear.

Of ev’ry thing, You are in control,
I trust You, Lord, it is well with my soul!
On Your children, You keep a watchful eye,
On Your love and pow,r, we can rely.

I WILL NEVER LEAVE YOU

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!

JESUS, YOU ARE MY SOLACE

You are my Solace, in time of pain,
My very body, You do sustain.
No matter my pain or agony,
What wondrous comfort, You’re there for me!

You are my Solace, in time of fear,
In my mind and heart, I know you’re near.
I need not cower about in dismay,
You have a calming effect, come what may!

You are my Solace, in time of grief,
Deep down in my soul, I find relief.
I surely don’t have to agonize,
Your encouragement I realize!

You are my Solace, when I have distress,
My spirit within me is truly bless’d.
Torment and woe You chase far away,
You bring cheer to me each single day!

You are my Solace, when I have doubt,
Urging me onward; I want to shout.
I need not have any uncertainties,
From the chains of Satan, You set me free!

You are my Solace, when I go astray,
Helping me back to the perfect way.
On a lighted path, You tenderly guide,
You reassure me as I abide!

You are my Solace, in all I do,
Keep my heart and soul, focused on You.
Let peace and joy be ever complete,
Till one day soon, in Heaven we meet!

LET YOUR SPIRIT GUIDE

In all the right paths, let your Spirit guide,
So that with you, dear Lord, I can abide.
Keep my eyes on you, for Satan is strong,
Let your Spirit guide, and keep me from wrong.

The devil is strong in the world today,
He’ll not cease trying to lead me astray.
I need God’s armor, full and complete,
For with my strength alone, I can’t compete!

Let your Spirit guide on roads rough and steep,
Don’t let me fall into canyons so deep.
Keep this fragile ‘sheep’ from going astray,
Let your Spirit guide, or I’ll surely sway.

Let your Spirit show me right paths to take,
Without His guidance, I’ll make vast mistakes.
I want loving friendship, Lord, with you,
Just with your Spirit, can I this pursue.

You have granted eternal life in Heav’n,
This ‘gift’ tops the list of many you’ve giv’n.
You’ve giv’n your Spirit to abide with me,
To guide and comfort for eternity.

My Greatest Blessing is Christ Jesus, God’s Son,
And I thank Him daily, for all He has done.
He helps me this day, and will for eternity,
And He’s ne-er too busy, to hear my ev’ry plea!

My Greatest Blessing, comfort He brings my way,

Where I will forever, His grand love to share.

Most people want no part, of Jesus the Lord,
And they want no part, of God’s Holy Word.
But that is the ONLY place, to find the Truth,
Be you elderly, middle age, or in your youth.

People keep on in sin, ne-er thinking they shall pay,
They do not think, of what shall be, on Judgment day.

For agony awaits you, and you all alone!

 May I suggest, accept the Blessing so great,
Jesus can keep you, from Hell’s tormenting fate.
Only Jesus, has the key to Heav’n above,
Acceptance of Him, shall flood your soul with love!

The Greatest Blessing e’er, you too can proclaim,
If you trust and believe, in Jesus’ Holy Name.
You can escape, the horrid torments of Hell,
Jesus can reserve in Heav’n, a place for you to dwell.

Gratitude for Christ Jesus, is what I feel,
For I know in my heart, my soul He has sealed.
Jesus can be a Blessed Treasure, for you,
 If only you believe, God’s Holy Word so true!

And more precious stones, than a truck could hold.
Alongside Christ, worldly riches mean nothing,
Just knowing He’s near, is a great blessing.

And He’s always close by, me to protect.
His awesome pow’r comes thru’, when I am weak,
He’s with me always, so I need not seek.

Which I need, in this world of push and shove.
His abundant love, is shed upon me,

My Greatest Treasure, is so merciful.
His compassion to me, is wonderful.
When Judgment Day comes, I will have no fear,
For the Judge, my Greatest Treasure, is near.

God’s Word states, that Jesus is many things,
Redeemer, Saviour, Prophet, Priest and King.
But He is the Greatest Treasure, to me,
Freely gifting me, with life eternally.

ONLY FROM GOD

When I see the beauty the Lord has made,
How I praise Him as I walk in His glade.
Beauty of mountains, so mighty and tall,
In the lofty trees, little birds so small.

Fertile valleys, planted with fruits and crops,
Rain and snow from Heav’n, only He can drop!
Pastures filled with cattle, grass so green,
Gently rushing waters of a pretty stream.

I look out my window at birds so free,
Sing their beautiful songs up in the tree.
How I thank Him, and praise His holy Name,
For each and ev’ry thing; and that Jesus came!

I specially thank God for sending His Son,
Whoever accepts Him, life’s just begun!
When you have Jesus deep down in your heart,
It’s very easy each new day to start!

Look around, at the beauty of His Hand,
No one but God, all this could have planned!
From the highest Heav’n, to Hell deep below,
Only from God, could all these wonders flow!

There are times in life that storms abound,

Life can bring depression and anxiety,
We can hurt physically or mentally.

Some times the river is calm and skies are blue,
All seems to be going just right for you.
Then all at once, fierce winds start to blow,
And the river of life rages to and fro.

High angry waves; you have no control,
Friend, you need an Anchor for your soul.
You need Christ to calm and secure you.
In storms of life, He’ll see you thru’.

Your Anchor will grip firmly and hold tight,
In life’s raging storms, both day and night.
If you would only allow Christ to aid,
Of troubles, you need not be afraid.

Do you have an Anchor on which to hold?
He gives comfort, and will make you bold.
He can give peace and security,
Ev’n tho’ life’s storms rage furiously.

Our Lord Jesus is our everything,
And just He, eternal life can bring.
He is our love, love beyond compare,
Love that surrounds us; it’s everywhere!

Christ is our everything, all the time,
All that He is, or does, is sublime.
Wondrous Jesus, such a trusting Friend,
There for us always, ‘til this life ends.

The peace Jesus gives, is everything,
The world can’t possess this peace He brings.
A wondrous feeling, down in your heart,
No one can take it, and it won’t depart!

Christ is our joy, for me and for you,
He’s our everything, He’s tried and true.
Joy unspeakable and full of glory,
Here in this life, and thru’ eternity.

A precious Gift, that removes death’s sting,
Our Lord Jesus, is our everything!

Our Wonderful Promise Keeper

I feel His vast love, as I go thru’ the day,
The warmth of His Presence, is with me always.
His Word tells me, of the Promises He makes,
“I will never leave you, never forsake.”

His grace is indeed, an amazing thing,
There for me always, such a grand blessing.
His grace is what gave me, life eternally,
An awesome Gift, God promised to me.

I dearly love His pow’r, and authority,
For Christ made me a child, in God’s family.
He promis’d some day, a mansion on high,
Reserv’d for me, and on Him I can rely!

I count on His guidance, each and ev’ry day,
As He lovingly guides me, in the right way.
He guides me with His counsel, ‘tis no story,
And when I pass on, He’ll receive me to glory.

His faithfulness gives me hope, abundantly,
Giving me assurance, and security.
‘Tis such a comfort to know, He cannot lie,
And that on ALL of His Promises, I can rely!

Forgiveness of my sins, I can’t comprehend,
What an awesome God, that He calls me “friend.”
I praise Him for all, that He does for me,
I’ll thank Him now, and for eternity.

Such amazing peace, flowing thru’ my soul.
This fellowship with You, I truly need,
Many thoughts do come, on which my soul does feed.

Peace takes control, in these quiet times always,
Giving me wisdom, to help me live my days.
I feel Your awesome Presence, ever so near,
It hurriedly chases away any fears.

Peace takes control, urging my heart to be still,
Quietly I listen, that I may know Your will.
Lord, I feel Your vast love, O so near to me,
This  love You give, comes unconditionally.

Peace takes control, and my faith does increase,
In this quiet time, comfort never does decrease.
Bless the Lord, O my soul, and all within me,
Praise His awesome Name, for all eternity.

Peace takes control, O Lord You truly bless,
In these quiet times, my soul You do caress.

PEACE, JOY AND CONTENTMENT

Salvation is a ‘gift’ God does give,
In our life here on Earth, as we live.
Sav’d by our faith, thru’ God’s wondrous grace,
The only Way we’ll ever see His Face!

To us, God gives gifts and blessings galore,
We know not, what all He holds on store.
God thru’ Christ Jesus, does bless each day,
Never forsaking, but there always!

When in Christ Jesus you do believe,
Abundant blessings you shall receive.
The peace, joy and contentment He brings,
Makes hearts of God’s children, want to sing.

Christ Jesus, awesome Saviour and Lord,
He is portrayed, all thru’ God’s Word!
Just He can give life eternally,
Only He holds blissful Heaven’s ‘key’!

PEACEABLE KINGDOM

With righteousness Christ shall judge the poor,
Corrupt judges are gone; that’s is sure!
The strong will not exploit nor oppress,
For the meek and the poor: happiness!

‘Twill be a great time of calm and peace,
All wars and conflict did end and cease.
The wolf also shall dwell with the sheep,
The cow and the bear, shall feed and sleep.

The leopard shall lie down with the kid,
The calf, young lion, and fatling amid!
A little child, them will lead and play,
‘Twill be a wondrous time in that day.

Babies will play on the hole of a snake,
And what a wonder! no danger at stake!
No fear or violence in that day,
No hating each other; but love, alway.

Each man will work to live; and be glad,
Giving to the lazy, is a lost fad!
Ev’ry man shall sit under his own tree,
There shall be peace; and all shall be free.

(Isaiah ch.11)
This Kingdom may come sooner than most expect!

PRIVILEGED

There’s turmoil in the world; all around,
But Christ gives me peace that does abound!
Joy, for most people, is far away,
Yet I rejoice, each and ev’ry day!

Contentment, for most, is but a dream,
But with Christ near, it’s a steady stream!
The world is fill’d with wickedness,
But true Christians reveal Christ’s kindness!

A child of God is not of this world,
Character traits of Christ, are unfurl’d!
We must always be patient and meek,
And His guidance, we should always seek!

We should copy Christ with faithfulness,
When we persevere, our God will bless!
We must love, most important of all,
Being gentle and good, let us stand tall!

We are privileged, as God’s children,
Each day He blesses us; o’er again!
All those without Christ, receive God’s wrath,
Traveling with Satan, on Hell’s broad path!

Let’s pray for the “fruit” of self-control,
And commit to Christ, body and soul!
Just those “in Christ” can access God’s Throne,
For just the Blood of Christ, can atone!

You can be privileged, this very day,
If the Gospel of Christ, you obey!
Receive Christ, and believe on His Name,
And become God’s child; make it your aim!

Only God's children are blessed with wonders of God!

SO  MANY  BLESSINGS

So many blessings the Lord does give,
Each and every day, that we live.
A wondrous God,in the Heav’ns above,
Showers us with blessings, done in love.

The wonders of nature, all around,
Beauty to the eye, and wondrous sound!
Birds and animals, to each other call,
Massive whales, to tiny insects small.

In rugged mountains, tall and grandeur,
The air way up there, so fresh and pure.
In the valley where the crops do grow,
His Hand is ev’ry where, this I know!

He makes pretty clouds, puffy and white,
‘Tis astounding, how gorgeous the sight!
Sunsets are, His striking works of art,
For us to enjoy, ‘fore they depart!

So many blessings from Him abound,
His grace, mercy, kindness; all around!
At the top of the list, is His love,
A gracious God, in the Heav’ns above!

He pardons sins and iniquities,
Can grant Heav’n, as our final decree.
He gave His one Son, to buy our soul,
If we trust and believe, we are whole.

Belief in Jesus, washes sins away,
And grants us a mansion, in Heav’n someday.
Wondrous blessings of God do abound,
But NONE, near like Christ, can be found!

Ne’er again, will I ever fear.

So very precious, words can’t tell,

THE BEGINNING OF ALL GOOD THINGS

Christ is the beginning of all good things,
His awesome Presence, many blessings bring!
God sent His Son to Earth, to redeem our soul,
And God also gave Him full control!

Trusting in Jesus, brings life eternally,
Just He can remove our iniquity.
Just He can bring you to Heav’n’s blissful shore,
Christ is the beginning of this, and more!

Christ is the beginning of joy and peace,
Your stress and your worries, He can release!
The peace He gives is a wondrous thing,
Contentment too, only He can bring!

Christ is the beginning of wondrous rest,
Tho’ at times He will put us to the test!
He allows troubles to come, our faith to try,
Those who endure, have wondrous rest on high!

In this life on Earth, He will always be near,
He loves us dearly, we need never fear!
Trusting in Christ, is just the beginning,
One day we will reign with the Mighty King!

THE BEST THINGS IN LIFE ARE FREE

Some folk slave for riches of this Earth,
Then with pride, show off all they’re worth.
They have pow’r and wealth; but are not happy,
For all the best things in life are free!

Contentment can’t be bought; nor can love,
Peace and joy; these come just from above!
And nearly all strive for happiness,
But instead, many have great sadness.

Can money buy a true loving spouse?
Or a happy home; not a lonely house?
Can your money buy excellent health?
The best things in life, don’t come from wealth!

A true friend will stand by you always,
Won’t leave nor forsake, on your worst days.
The true love Christ shows, is always free,
With grace and mercy, for you and me!

There is a saying, and I agree,
“All the best things in this life are free.”
The wondrous blessings our God does give,
Makes this world a better place as we live.

THE WORLD OVERLOOKS THE GREATEST BLESSING

The world overlooks, the Greatest Treasure,
All they desire, is riches and pleasures.
Just of the ‘here and now’, do people think,
They don’t realize that they, are on death’s brink.

The Greatest Treasure, the world cannot see,
For they never think, of eternity.
Always too busy, to ev’n look His way,
They are too busy, rushing thru’ their day.

The world overlooks, what Jesus can do,
He and He alone to Heav’n, can take you.
But most people think, there are many ways,
And they just reject, what the Bible says!

When the world, the Greatest Treasure denies,
Satan rejoices, and false hopes applies.
People follow him, on that big broad road,
That lead to agony, in Hell’s abode.

The world speaks of Christ, just in blasphemy,
Cursing, vile jokes, friend, this should not be!
And they call those who love Him, Jesus’ freaks,
On Judgment Day, fear shall come, when Jesus speaks.

IF the world would just turn, to the Greatest Treasure,
He could give them comfort, peace and pleasure.
His grace is sufficient for us, always,
And He ne’er leaves, ne’er forsakes, all our days.

For the whole world, this Great Treasure is there.
Jesus is available, everywhere!
Be wise my friend, accept Jesus today,
For to get to Heav’n, there’s no other way!

WHAT IF GOD’S BLESSINGS WERE NOT FREE?

On God’s blessings, what would the price be?
If God were to charge, you and me.
Could we afford to pay for His love?
That He so graciously sends, from above.

Could we buy peace? or have to pass by?
For on our money, we couldn’t rely.
What about grace? how much would you pay?
For God’s sufficiency, ev’ry day.

The joy in your life, how much is it worth?
Consider this, as you walk this Earth.
Being content, as you live your life,
Would be expensive, for it removes strife.

What about hope, how much would it be?
As you contemplate, eternity.
And what about salvation of your soul?
Saving your money would have to be your goal.

Isn’t God good to us, ev’ry day?
For NONE of His blessings, do we have to pay!
He doesn’t charge for His love, it’s free!
And His grace abounds, abundantly!

Peace and joy come when Christ we accept,
God gives them freely, to His elect!
Contentment comes when the Spirit abides,
When the door of our heart, we open wide.

Because of Christ, God forgives all our sins,
Just thru’ Christ, can God’s friendship we win.
We now have hope, that wasn’t there before,
Salvation is ours! and so much more!
