Poems About Guidance and Direction

A HARD LIFE

Living for Christ is not easy to do,
When you walk close to Him, folks watch you!
Ready to jump on you if you slip,
At times you feel like deserting the ship!

With love like our God; we are to love,
‘Tis hard in this world of push and shove.
Repaying good, for evil folks do,
I surely need Him, to see me thru’.

Curse not, but bless; love your enemy,
Only with Christ can we have victory.
Our brother we are to truly forgive,
If we want forgiveness, as we live.

Lord Jesus, we can’t do it alone,
We would fail completely, on our own.
Please Lord Jesus, stay close by our side,
Love and forgive, and be there to guide.

Scripture verses for above poem:
Jn.15:18; Phil.4:13,19; Mt.10:22; Mt.5:21-22; Mt.5:27-28,31-35; Mt.5:38-39; Mt.5:43;44; Mt.6:14-15

ARE YOU BEAUTIFUL?

As a jewel of gold in a pig’s snout,
‘Tis beauty, less discretion, round about.
Favor is deceitful; beauty vain,
But those who fear God, have much to gain.

Outward beauty is a fading flower,
Here today, gone with tomorrow’s hour.
God does hate your vanity and pride,
I do suggest you set them aside.

God desires from you, beauty down deep,
He just wants you to be one of His sheep.
With ‘life’ He will beautify the meek,
ETERNAL LIFE; if only Him you’ll seek.

From us, God wants spiritual beauty,
Beauty of the heart, for eternity.
A meek, quiet spirit, one which loves,
Is of great price to God, who lives above.

The Lord takes pleasure in all His own,
If you are His, your path will be shown.
Worry only of your beauty within,
Live life for Jesus, away from sin.

Scripture verses for above poem:
(Pro.6:16-19; Pr.11:22; Pr.31:30; Is.28:1,4; Is.55:8-9;
Ps.149:4; 1 Pe.3:3-4; Mt.5:5; Jn.14:15,21)

COME UNTO ME

Come unto Me” with your heavy load,
From Jesus, these tender words flowed.
Does sin’s burden weigh heavy on you?
Turn to Christ, for forgiveness so true.

“Come unto Me”; He never seems to tire,
So patient, yet, persistent desire.
Softly and tenderly Christ does call,
He calls ‘whosoever’, one and all.

“Come unto Me” He urges gently,
Only He gives complete victory.
There’s urgency in His invitation,
Please don’t reject God’s very own Son.

Come unto Me He cries, O, so meek,
For He came, all the lost ones to seek.
Jesus came, eternal life to give,
That we might in Heav’n, eternally live.

“Come unto Me” whosoever you are,
Red, yellow, black, white; from near and far.
The young and the old, the rich and poor,
Only Christ, your destiny can ensure.

Scripture verses for above poem:
(Mt.11:28-30; 2 Co.6:2; Ro.10:9; Lu.19:10; Jn.3:15-18,36)

COME UNTO ME

Our Saviour cries out, “Come unto Me,”
He will ease you burdens willingly.
His yoke is easy, His burden light,
Christ is ready to help in your plight.

“Come unto Me,” He tenderly calls,
He can ease the burdens of one and all.
He’ll lift your heavy load, off of you,
You can be one of His chosen few.

When His yoke, you willingly accept,
He makes you God’s child, and He’ll protect.
No matter your load, He’s there to aid,
Thru’ calm or storm, you need not be afraid.

When you take Jesus’ yoke upon you,
It means you commit, to One who is true.
Your commitment must be a life long one,
You must stand firm, by God’s only Son.

When we join together with the Lord,
Wondrous praises from our soul is heard.
For now, Christ is there in time of need,
He lifts our load, when to Him we plead.

So softly He cries, “Come unto Me,”
“Bring me all your pain and misery.
My yoke is easy, my burden light,
I will assist you, no matter your plight.”

It’s senseless to bear your burden alone,
It’s foolish to suffer on your own.
Accept His offer to “Come unto Me,”
He’ll give peace and rest thru’ eternity.

Scripture verses for above poem:
Mat. 11:28-30; 19:14; Mark 10:14; Luke 18:16; J
n. 6:65; Jn.7:37

GENTLY HE SPEAKS

“Come unto Me” Jesus gently cries,
But most folk today dare to defy.
Our loving Lord wants just the best for you,
Yet those who turn to Him are but a ‘few’.

“Take my yoke” Jesus tenderly states,
Always there to help, He’s compassionate.
His yoke is easy, His burden light,
And He’ll never leave you, day or night.

“Learn of Me” Jesus patiently pleads,
But most turn away; to Him won’t heed.
He is so meek and lowly in heart,
He just wants our love; we should not depart.

“Ye shall find rest for your souls” He says,
This ‘rest’ He can give, all of your days.
His ‘rest’ is certain, and satisfies,
Turn to Him now, don’t reject or deny.

(Mt.11:28-30; Mt.7:13-14)

HE BLESSES US DAILY

Sufficient to His children is God’s grace,
No matter what our trouble, or the place.
His pow’r and His wisdom will see us thru’,
He blesses us daily, both me and you.

Abundant is God’s grace to one and all,
A never ending supply, when we call.
His love for His children will never cease,
He blesses us daily, with inward peace.

Merciful is God’s grace to those who obey,
Tho’ we stumble many times in our day.
He cares for us even tho’ we are weak,
He blesses us daily, if Him we seek.

God’s children receive grace compassionate,
From their Father in Heav’n, awesome and great.
Our troubles and sorrows are felt by Him,
He blesses us daily, makes bad things dim.

God’s grace is absolutely amazing,
Plus the fact, it is absolutely free.
Our Father truly shows us such great love,
He blesses us daily, from Heav’n above.

HELP ME . . . SHOW ME

Free my mind of all confusion and pain,
Don’t let me murmur, find fault or complain.
Let your Spirit help me do your sweet will,
And please help me Lord, to learn to be still.

Show me Lord, where you are leading today,
Let your Spirit guide each step of the way.
There may be some storms, dark and overcast,
But if you will help me, they’ll soon be past.

Please do not let me doubt; keep my faith strong,
Let me keep trusting you when things go wrong.
Lord, increase my faith, O’ that wondrous shield,
That Satan’s darts I’ll be able to wield.

I ask not for riches, nor worldly fame,
I ask just for strength to lift up thy Name.
And show to others, that I really care,
To help with their needs, or burdens to bear.

Let me be like Jesus, my wondrous Lord,
Help me to obey, in willing accord.
Help me to be, all you want me to be,
Lord, let others see Jesus in me.

1 Co.2:13; Mt.6:19-21; Jn.6:63; Jn.14:15,23,26; Jer.29:13)

HE’S THERE FOR YOU

Did you e’er have all things, seem to go wrong?
And your strength was gone, you felt weak, not strong?
Did you ask for help, or go it alone?
He’s there for you, why do it on your own?

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,
He’s there for you, no matter your plight.

HIS GLORIOUS LIGHT

Walking in His glorious Light,
I need not worry ‘bout my sight.
I walk by faith, when I walk in Him,
The path ahead is never dim.

His glorious Light is all I need,
When on the precious Vine I feed.
My every need He does supply,
My trusting in Him does qualify.

His glorious Light does abound,
Darkness is gone, from all around.
No matter my plight, His Light does shine,
‘Tis great to know that Jesus is mine.

Ne’er any darkness, e’er at all,
His glorious Light won’t let me fall.
He removed the bonds of my sin,
When I believed, and trusted in Him.

His glorious Light out shines the sun,
Who can compare? nary a one.
Nothing to His Light, can compare,
We must tell others; and His Light share.

I’ll never walk in darkness again,
For my Source of Light will not wane!
I’ll walk by faith, not by my sight,
When I walk in Christ’s glorious Light!

In pain and sorrow, and when you’re afraid.

Giv’n to “whosoever;” you and me.

That with us for ever, will reside.

In troubling times, to it we can cling.

Love that keeps us going, me and you.

Abundantly each day, we do reap.
His hand does furnish great hope and joy,
These vast blessings, no man can destroy.

‘Tis a great gain, in every way.
His Hand is there to comfort and guide,
These blessings come only when we abide.

His Hand will one day hold that royal key,
To open Heav’n’s gate, for you and me.
We’ll then be welcom’d by His loving Hand,
Into Heav’n’s awesome Glory Land!

HIS HAND ON ME

Without my Saviour’s Hand on me,
I could never have life, eternally!
Without Jesus’ Hand, to lead me right,
I’d stumble and grope as in the night.

Without Jesus’ Hand on me, I know,
To that City of Gold, I’d never go!
I would be doom’d to Hell’s agony,
Without my dear Lord’s Hand on me!

Without His Hand on me to rightly teach,
Lost souls around me, I could not reach.
Without Jesus’ Hand, I’d sink and fall,
But He keeps me standing, straight and tall!

How I praise Him, for His awesome Hand,
Leading, guiding, helping me stand.
Dear Lord, keep Your wondrous Hand on me,
For I love Your peace and serenity.

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 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!

HOLD ON TIGHT

When you turn to Christ to save your soul,
Submit completely; give Him control!
The road of life is bumpy, hold on tight,
You cannot survive, with your own might!

Hold on tight to Jesus, with a firm hold,
For He’s leading to the City of Gold!
Tho’ trials and sorrows do surround,
The blessing of His grace, does abound!

Grab hold and hold on tight, to our Lord,
Only Jesus can keep sin’s door barred.
Troubles arise like a violent sea,
Just Christ can stabilize you and me.

Satan will lure with temptations great,
His pow’r we must not underestimate!
Firmly grip Jesus, and hold on tight,
Don’t turn loose, or you’ve lost the fight!

Hold on tight to Christ, our precious Lord,
Grasping His goodness, all else discard.
Don’t be shaken loose by anything,
The tighter the grip, the greater the blessing!

Hold on tight to Christ; clutch securely,
For just He can give life eternally.
Let nothing, from Him, pull you away,
For we must think beyond, this present day.

I DON’T WANNA

I don’t wanna go if You’re not there,
For no one with You, can e’er compare.
No one could e’er take Your place with me,
You give absolute serenity.

I don’t wanna go on life’s road alone,
I want Light from You so the path is shown
I want Your Presence, ever so near,
For You cast away, all of my fear.

I don’t wanna go, if You won’t go,
I need You Lord, in joy and sorrow.
You always comfort and encourage me,
And You keep far away, my enemy.

I don’t wanna make choices without You,
Decisions with Your help, are right and true.
Without Your assistance, I’d go wrong,
I need Your loving pow’r, e’er so strong.

I don’t wanna be any place You are not,
For each day Your strength is eagerly sought.
You are the Vine, I’m just a branch holding tight,
Your love and pow’r sees me thru’ all my plights.

I don’t wanna think of life without You,
Dear Lord, what could I possibly do?
I want to be with You, for all eternity,
For life without You would be agony.

I RUN TO YOU

Dear Lord, I run to You for safety,
And You protect me, for You have mercy
You are there for me, You are my shield,
You are my Lord, and to You I yield.

Lord, I run to You to receive pow’r,
You are my strength for any hour.
When I feel weak, You are there for me,
You are my Lord, for eternity.

Lord, I run to You, when I need rest,
You are always there, to give Your best.
The peace I receive from You abounds,
You are my Lord and rest is always found.

Lord, I run to You each time I fear,
And ev’ry time, soothing words I hear.
From Your Presence, comfort I receive,
You are my Lord, and I will not grieve.

Our dear loving Lord is near to you,
He can be there in all that you do.
He can make your future e’er so bright,
If you will just walk in His glorious Light.

You too, can run to this wondrous Friend,
And His loving support will never end.
He too can be your dear Lord always,
Just open to Him, your heart’s door this day.

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.

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’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.

Never look back, but only ahead,
Re-living the past, only brings dread!
Mistakes we made, be they large or small,
We should be wise, and learn from them all!

Things of this world will look so dim,
If your eyes are on the brightness of Him.

If your eyes are on God’s will alone,
All the right roads to you will be shown.
Keep your eyes on Christ, He’ll guide you right,
Paths that He shows are drenched with light.

If your eyes are on God’s beloved Son,
He’ll give you pow’r to resist temptation.
Keep your eyes on Jesus, all the way,
His awesome love makes a better day.

If your eyes are on wondrous Saviour,
Forgiveness of all your sins is sure.
Keep your eyes on Christ, He’ll justify,
But His precious Blood you must not deny!

If your eyes are on our God of Heav’n,
Eternal life to you, by Him, is giv’n.
Keep your eyes on Christ, He’ll prepare you a place,
And some day you’ll meet Him, face to Face!

Never look back, but only ahead,
Re-living the past, only brings dread!
Mistakes we made, be they large or small,
We should be wise, and learn from them all!

LEAD ME, LEAD ME, LORD!

Lead me, lead me, Lord, where you would have me go,
Let me always be willing, all your ways to know.
Lord, grant me wisdom, that I might follow You,
Let the light of your love, come to my perfect view.

Lead me, lead me, Lord, and help me do my best,
Let me learn more of your love; ‘tis my request!
Such great compassion, grace and tender mercy,
All blessings, you bestow on us so freely!

Lead me, lead me, Lord, away from wicked ways,
Tho’ Satan does tempt us with their bright array.
Worldly pleasures are here now, but gone tomorrow,
Lord, keep me away from eternal sorrow!

Lead me, lead me, Lord, from habits that are sin,
Fill me with your Spirit, as each new day I begin!
Let me walk in your ways, casting evil aside,
For I want only with my Lord to abide!

Lead me, lead me, Lord, that I might know you more,
For ‘tis clear, just You hold ‘keys’ to Heaven’s door!
Just You precious Jesus, can give us access,
Without You in our heart, God will never bless!

Lead me, lead me, Lord, to a lost soul today,
That I might tell them, You are the only Way!
Lord Jesus, lead me, that I might live for You,
Help me show to others, a love that is true!

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.

LORD, I NEED . . .

Lord, I need vision, to understand and see,
Exactly what it is, You expect of me.
When trials and troubles come my way,
Increase my faith, that I may get thru’ the day.

Lord, I need wisdom, that I might truly know,
What it is, that You are trying to show.
When my burden, grows heavy with despair,
Let me see Your great love, and how much You care!

Lord, I need Your pow’r, to complete my task,
Let me understand; all I need do is ask!
When my body tires, and I feel so weak,
Let me know Your pow’r, is what I should seek.

Lord, of my many sins, I need forgiveness,
Just one of the many ways, that You bless!
When sin’s great load, lies heavy on my heart,
Let me feel Your mercy, and that sin depart!

Lord, I need Your patience as I live this day,
For many mistakes, I will make on the way!
When decisions come, and I make the wrong choice,
Let me feel Your compassion, that I might rejoice!

Lord, each day that I live, I need Your grace,
That I might not, the old devil embrace.
When Satan is there, with great temptation,
Let me remember, You are my Salvation!

Lord, I need oft’ hear, of Your grand Promise,
A “mansion” in Heav’n, that I will possess.
Lord, I want to live with You, eternally,
And only You, precious Jesus, hold the ‘key.’

My Constant Companion

I will never leave thee, never forsake,
A Promise my Saviour, to me does make.
My Constant Companion, comfort does bring,
Comfort is just one, of many blessings!

The awesome Holy Spirit, for ev’r shall abide,
A blessing to know, that in Him I can confide.
He is always there to help, in time of need,
But we must remember, to Him we must heed.

From the Father proceeds, my Constant Companion,
And He does testify of Jesus, God’s Son.
He shall glorify Christ, and show it to you,
He speaks only the Truth of God, thru’ and thru’.

The Holy Spirit is a Witness, to the Lord,
 To listen to Him, brings us great reward!
My Constant Companion, wants me to witness too,
And He also desires, the same thing for you.

My Constant Companion, wants me to obey,
To do things of the Spirit, each and ev’ry day.
We are to avoid, worldly and fleshly things,
For our obedience, shall grand blessings bring.

The Holy Spirit tells me, that I am God’s child,
Ev’n tho’ the devil maintains, that I am defil’d.
He also helps me, when I know not what to pray,
Making intercession for me, all of my days.

My Friend will be with me, till my days on Earth end,
 Ever so near, and from the devil He defends.
My angels will join us, when it’s my time to leave,
A blessing indeed, there is no need to grieve!

Indwelling of the Holy Spirit: (Jn.14:16-18, 23, 26-27; Rom.5:5; 8:9-11, 14-17; 1 Cor.2:12; 3:16-17; 6:19; 12:27; 14:25; 2 Cor.6:16; Gal.4:6; Eph.2:22; 4:6; Phil.2:13; 2 Tim.1:14; Jam.4:5; Heb.13:5; 1 Pet.1:11; 1 Jn.2:27; 4:4-6, 12; Rev.22:1,17; Lk.16:22).  

MY PLANS . . . OR GOD’S PLANS?

With careful plans, my future looked bright,
My hopes and dreams blossom’d; all seem’d just right.
At the day’s end, I’d go to God in pray’r,
Lord, bless my plans, and keep me from despair.

As time went by, my plans came tumbling down,
All the smiles I had, were replaced by frowns.
I was confused; I could not comprehend,
How my hopes and plans, came to this tragic end.

Did I not ask for blessings, as I went in pray’r?
And ask that my plans be held in His care?
That my hopes and dreams, all would come true?
Yet failure set in; throwing plans askew.

Then in one night’s stillness and shadows dim,
I heard His Voice; calling me close to Him!
“Why do you make plans, and not include Me?”
“As you now see, it just brings agony.”

“Dear child, please allow Me to make your plans,
Trust Me, and leave the future, in My Hands.
The path you now trod; I’ve seen it before,
Let your faith lead you, to blessings galore.”

My pride was now gone; as I bow’d in shame,
My spirit humbled, as I thought of Your Name.
Precious Lord Jesus; my soul Thou hast bought,
Thank You dearly, for this lesson You’ve taught.

I no longer pray: “Lord, bless all my plans,”
For I know the future is in Your Hands!
Now I pray: “Thy will be done; You plan for me,”
I commit my all to You, eternally.

He gives me peace and serenity.
Thru’ ev’ry trial of each new day,
My precious Guide is with me, alway!

When paths are beset with thorns galore,
My Guide seems to lead me, all the more!
And when Satan sets great tempting snares,
Jesus wisely guides; He’s always there!

Ev’ry where that I go, sin surrounds,
But the wisdom of my Guide abounds!
In wondrous Jesus I can confide,
I must always with my Lord abide!

Tho’ my heart be heavy with worldly care,
Tho’ I have pain, sorrow, or despair.
Christ Jesus is always at my side,
Showing mercy and love, as my Guide!

Tho’ skies are dark, and there seem no light,
My Guide is there, in my ev’ry plight.
Dark shadows may cross my path today,
But Jesus will guide me, all the way!

When hope seems gone; giving place to fear,
And doubt, worry; even greed appear.
All worldly cares in Him I can hide,
Jesus is there, to comfort and guide!

NEVER LOOK BACK

Never look back, but only ahead,
Re-living the past, only brings dread!
Mistakes we made, be they large or small,
We should be wise, and learn from them all!

Never look back, this is a new day,
Forget the mistakes you made on the way.
Don’t dwell on things you cannot change,
But when you blunder, don’t think it strange.

Never look back, on bad things you did,
For all our evils in Christ are hid!
Accepting Jesus makes you all new,
You’re in a great group; one of the “few.”

Never look back, it will just depress,
Only Jesus will bring you success!
Keep your eyes on Jesus, each new day,
He’ll lead on the right road, not let you stray!

Looking back brings bitter memories,
Look instead to peace and serenity!
Just Jesus can give ‘good’ things in life,
And remove the ‘bad’ things that cause strife.

Keep your eyes on Jesus, look His way,
Let Him lead and guide you each new day!
Always look forward, never look back,
Trust Jesus to keep you on the right track!

NO CLOSED DOORS

There’s no closed door to God’s wondrous love,
It’s never ending and true, from above!
That love is there, for you and for me,
God gives thru’ Jesus, so abundantly!

There’s no lock on the door to God’s grace,
It’s always open, our sins to erase!
It’s available, to all who believe,
When God’s precious Son they do receive!

The door’s always open, to God’s mercy,
For our precious Saviour holds the ‘key.’
Only Christ can open that door so wide,
That we can access God’s mercy inside!

There’s no closed door to God’s wondrous Throne,
But we must access thru’ Jesus alone!
We can go to the Father, day or night,
And ask in pray’r that He aid in our plight.

The door to forgiveness is always open,
God forgives thru’ Christ, again and again!
We can go to God when we transgress,
Forgiveness is ours, as He does bless.

Christ Jesus has control of ev’ry door,
All are open to what God has in store.
But we must always trust and abide,
To receive the blessings God holds inside!

We as God’s children have so much to gain,
Awesome blessings thru’ Christ we can attain.
Jesus opens all the doors to God so wide,
And gives to us eternal life besides!

ONE STEP AT A TIME

He leads me gently, one step at a time,
‘Tis a blessing no one can undermine.
He’s there to guide as my path unfolds,
If I should stumble, my hand He will hold.

No one knows what tomorrow will bring,
But if He is with me, nothing can sting.
Only God knows the end of all to come,
Walk close to Him, do not from Him roam.

We need not fret ‘bout the troubles of life,
Trust in His goodness, you’ll have less strife.
His grace is sufficient for me and you,
Believe and accept, it’s not much to do.

One step at a time, as each day unfurls,
Gently He leads, without any quarrel.
We are to walk by faith and not by sight,
Trust in God, for He knows our ev’ry plight.

Phil.4:6,11,19; 2 Co.5:7)

ONE STEP FORWARD, TWO STEPS BACK

Living in Christ, gets harder each day,
Satan oppresses in so many ways.
One step forward, but then two steps back,
Satan works hard, to get me off track.

I know how the apostle did feel,
The wrongs he did, were ever so real.
Paul always wanted, just good to do,
But the sin deep inside, would show thru’.

One step forward; two back the wrong way,
At times it seems hopeless, with sin’s wide array.
Sharp, bitter words pop out of my head,
When kind, gentle words, I should use instead.

I want to do only, good, right things,
But sin that dwells in me, evil brings.
Sin wars against the inner man inside,
And the Spirit convicts, as He abides.

Good? bad? often I make the wrong choice,
I act too fast; list’ to the wrong voice.
Then the Spirit convicts, of wrongs I’ve done,
And I feel rotten, in front of God’s Son.

I’m supposed to imitate my Lord,
Yet Satan is near, with his discord.
And so v’ry often I go the wrong way,
I fall for Satan’s tricks, ev’ry day.

The good that I should, I do not do,
That awful evil, instead shows thru’.
Dear Jesus, when will I ever learn?
Help dear Lord, all evil to spurn.

Because we are far too quick to make wrong decisions, we
 are wise if we do not quench the Spirit of Christ, and allow Him
to help us make right decisions.

 
OUR GUIDE

We’ll find many hard roads on life’s journey,
As we wind our way to eternity.
But we have a Guide, who will lead us right,
For His light will shine in the darkest night!

Upward we climb, on a steep, rocky trail,
But if our Guide directs, we cannot fail!
We’ll not slip and fall as we journey on,
But we must trust our Guide; God’s own Son!

As we travel dowm a rugged crevasse,
Our Saviour will lead us, and He will bless!
We must keep our faith when we’re down and out,
Always trusting our Guide, never to doubt!

We will come to many detours in life,
Satan will tempt us with troubles and strife.
But ‘round those bumpy paths, our Guide will lead,
If only His right counsel, we will heed!

A constant, smooth road, our trip will not be,
As we journey on, to eternity!
We’ll have ups and downs; sunshine and rain,
But vict’ry is ours, our Guide will sustain!

Let me read Your Word; then meditate,
On how loving You are, and how great!
Quiet time with You, I truly need,
For at this time, my soul You do feed.

I hunger Lord, after righteousness,
And in my quiet time, You do bless.
I sit and worship You quietly,

There is no doubt, as my soul You fill.
I’m so content to be alone with You,

Quiet time with Christ, I really need,
For on His love and strength, I feed.
I love feeling His Presence, so near,
He chases away, all my doubts and fears.

I need that quiet time with my Lord,
This time when I tell Him, He’s ador’d.
A time when my heart nearly bursts with joy,
An awesome feeling, no man can destroy.

Quiet time with Jesus is a must,
A time when I tell Him: “It’s You I trust.”
Such gratitude from within does flow,
A time when I forget pain and sorrow.

Quiet time, as I lay on my bed,
I feel so close to Jesus, and have no dread.
I thank and praise Him for all He’s done,
My awesome Saviour and Lord, God’s own Son!

In my quiet time, of serenity,
I tell my Lord what He means to me.
I thank Him for His amazing grace,
And look to the day I see Him, Face to face!

The things that I think, or say, or do,
Should always reflect dear Lord, on you.
Yet all too often it’s not that way,
Lord, I fall short each and ev’ry day!

My thoughts, my words, my actions too,

But in this life, temptations are great,

My thoughts become words; words become deeds,
Deeds become habits; so I must take heed.
Habits mold my very character,
I need reflect on you, to endure!

Ev’ry thought, ev’ry word, ev’ry deed,
Should reflect on you, with light’ning speed.
With your help alone can I e’er do right,
So with each step, I must walk in your Light.

REFLECTING ON YOUR DAY

Your busy day is now nearly past,
Did you help just one? ‘fore night was cast?
Was there a kind word to one so low?
Did your smile help lift someone’s sorrow?

Is there any one happier, since you pass’d by?
Did you wipe the tears, of one who cried?
Did you give a hug, to one so alone?
Was love and compassion, by you shown?

Was there a lone soul, you did befriend?
Or did you with cross words, one offend?
Did you cause one’s heart to rejoice?
Or were they sorry, to hear your voice?

A hug, a smile, or a friendly word,
Friend, these are things, we can well afford!
The fading hopes of someone near by,
Can be chang’d to courage, they can’t deny.

Did you waste your day? or was it gain?
Did you spread kindness? or cause one pain?
As o’er your busy day you reflect,
Did you love, cheer, and help? or reject?

REFUSING TO OBEY GOD

Adam refused, God to obey,
Starting back, many years, far away.
God has called; most refuse His call,
He offers His Hand; but they’d rather fall.

Times have not changed, from way back then,
We too, refuse God, o’er and o’er again!
But all who refuse God, and rebel,
All who disobey; the verdict is ‘Hell’.

Even Christians turn their back on God,
Won’t turn back to Him when He does prod.
His correction, they simply refuse,
Their rights as His children, they abuse!

Thru’ deceit they refuse to ‘know’ the Lord,
Stacking evils and lies, like they’d not heard.
Turning back to sins of long ago,
Serving other ‘gods’, like God they don’t know.

So many today refuse to hear,
God tries to correct, but they have no fear.
Our Mighty God, we must trust and obey,
Or the verdict you’ll hate, on ‘Judgment Day.’

REJECTION OF JESUS

Rejection of Jesus brings judgment,
There WILL come a day when you will lament.
Rejection makes you God’s enemy,
Immediately, and for eternity.

Rejection of Christ brings judgment on you,
Condemned to Hell, with NO rescue!
You’ll be judged by ALL the deeds you’ve done,
When you stand before the ‘Judge’, God’s Son.

You will stand before that ‘Great White Throne’,
No one will help you; you’ll be alone!
The books will be opened up, wide,
ALL you’ve done, will be written inside.

The ‘Book of Life’ will be open too,
The record of God’s fam’ly, so true.
If your name is not written inside,
For ever, in Hell, you will abide.

You need NOT stand ‘fore that ‘Great White Throne’,
Christ can save you, and your sins atone.
You MUST believe what God’s Word does say,
QUIT rejecting! accept Christ this day.

You MUST accept Christ, to avoid God’s wrath,
You must follow on the narrow path.
You must trust and obey our Saviour,
He’ll save your soul, and Heaven ensure!

A reward will be giv’n if our works stand,
All we do for Christ, while in this land.
All works done selfishly will be burned,

Road Map
Psalm 73:24 Thou shalt guide me with thy counsel,
and afterward receive me to glory. (KJV)  

More like Jesus, I know I should be,
As I walk onward, to eternity.
So many obstacles, as I walk,
I must beware, of thoughts, deeds and talk.

We all have a “road map” as we go,
But few use it, causing great sorrow.
We will face many detours, on our way,
We all should use our “road map” ev’ry day.

The Bible will show us, only right paths,
Keeping us away, from God’s Holy wrath.
Temptation will come, as we walk on,
Ask yourself, “What would Jesus have done?”

Mors like Jesus, the Bible will show,
So, to the “road map,” we all must go.
The “road map,” will never wrongly lead,
If we would just consult it, and pay heed.

The Bible will guide us, in all right ways,
God will gladly lead us, all our days.
But we must truly trust Him, and obey,
For to reach Heaven, there’s NO other way!

Our road in life, may get rough and steep,
Count on the “road map,” to safely keep.
The Bible keeps us, on right roads each day,
And makes us more like Jesus, on our way.

When you take a trip, a “road map” you need,
On our trip to Heave’n, the Bible we must heed.
Trust Jesus to help you, each single day,
For the Bible says, He’s the ONLY Way!

Roads To Heaven

On the brink of disaster, this world stands,
This whole Universe, is in the Lord’s Hands.
Immorality, and such wickedness,
The Almighty Creator, will not bless.

As each of us walk, in the world today,
Oh! So many are trav’ling, the broad way,
They follow their master, who leads to Hell,
And there for eternity, they shall dwell.

Great, lofty mountains, and canyons so wide,
Will cross our path, as in this life we stride.
Those who are wise, will walk the narrow path,
In the light of Christ, which keeps us from God’s wrath.

We may come to a huge canyon, so deep,
Along the edge, we must cautiously creep.
We must obey the Spirit, as He guides,
Always correct directions, He’ll provides.

A wild raging river, comes into view,
How will we cross over? What shall we do?
Many are the obstacles, on our road,
As we keep on, to our heavn’ly abode.

Are you standing, at a junction this day?
Don’t let the old devil, your mind to sway.
If you’re on the broad road, get off right now,
Let the Holy Ghost, with wisdom endow.

Trials and tribulations, each day arrive,
The Spirit of Christ, your strength can revive.
From all temptations, you can walk away,
You can do all things, through Christ every day.

Many obstacles could come, across our road,
But the light of Christ, on us is bestowed.
Privileg’d we are, with Jesus on our side,
We must keep our faith, and in Him abide.

Hell: (Isa.5:14; 14:9; 30:33; Ps.49:14; Pro.27:20; Eze.32:18-30; Hab.2:5; Mat.7:13; Rev.20 13-15). Matthew 7:13-14  Enter ye in at the strait gate: for wide is the gate, and broad is the way, that leadeth to destruction, and many there be which go in thereat: 14  Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it. (KJV)

SALVATION

Salvation is taught, so very clear,
But we must listen, so we can hear.
God so loved the world, He sent His Son,
When we believe, eternal life’s begun.

God will not condemn, when we believe,
God’s amazing grace, we do receive.
Refusing to believe, brings God’s wrath,
But, most of the world, travel that path.

The Bible says, there is only one Way,
That we will e’er see, that glorious day.
Belief brings us, a mansion above,
And there to live for e’er, in God’s love.

To Heav’n’s gate, just Jesus has the key,
Just He can give, life eternally.
There is no other name, under Heav’n,
That salvation to us, will be giv’n.

Jesus is the Christ, when we believe,
Eternal salvation, we receive.
Unbelief will bring, the fires of Hell,
Where for e’er in agony, you will dwell.

We have life, when Christ is in our heart,
Our wicked, sinful ways, will depart.
Greater is God’s Spirit, who indwells,
Than old Satan, who will go to Hell.

Salvation is a Gift, but you decide,
Is the mansion in Heav’n, where you’ll reside?
If you refuse Christ, Hell is where you’ll go,
With the old devil, and great sorrow.

SEE  GOD  WITH  YOUR  HEART

With our mere eyes, God can’t be seen,
Not ‘til in Heav’n we all convene.
With our v’ry hearts God we must see,
Or Hell will be our destiny.

Only our heart can reveal God,
‘Tis this way, the whole world abroad.
But once we see Him with our heart,
Our very lives we do restart.

Once we see with our heart, so deep,
‘Tis amazing, what blessings we reap!
We can then see Him all around,
Where e’er we look; He can be found.

He’s in the Earth, the sky, the sea,
In a tiny bird in a tree.
In the beauty of a flower,
In the refreshing, spring shower.

We can now see God every where,
But before, ‘twas all bleak and bare.
Can you, our God, with your heart, see?
He’ll do for you, what He did for me.

SEEING  CHRIST

Seeing Christ with the ‘eye of faith’ saves us,
His vast power makes us victorious.
From the law of sin and death, we are free,
Only our faith in Christ grants us victory!

When we see Jesus with the ‘eye of love’,
We’ll trust completely, til we get above.
Awaiting me is my glorious Home,
In those days, from God, I’ll never roam!

To see Christ with the ‘eye of recognition’,
Is to adore Him, in all conditions!
And in the ‘eye of concentration’ we see,
Christ, as KING OF KINGS, in all His glory.

The ‘eye of spiritual understanding’
Sees Christ, as we should be; always enduring.
Seeing Him with the ‘eye of reality’,
Makes us glad in Him; joyous and happy.

Seeing Christ with the ‘eye of wondrous hope’,
Means we, God’s children, never have to grope.
We’re full of holy enthusiasm,
Looking forward to our eternal Home.

SEEING GOD

When you see God in His majesty,
You will see yourself very lowly.
When into His Presence, you do arrive,
Your attitude of pride, can’t survive.

When you see God in His purity,
You’ll see yourself, sinful and dirty.
You’ll beg Him to make you white as snow,
With cleanliness, just He can bestow.

When you see God in His holiness,
You will see all of your wickedness.
Holiness is what you’ll clearly see,
Opposite, of your depravity.

When you see God in all His glory,
Any pride you had will quickly flee.
Any fame and honor that came your way,
You will gladly cast far, far away.

When you see God in His love and grace,
You know one day you’ll see Him, Face to face.
Just by His grace, one day you will see,
The bliss of Heaven’s eternity.

When you see God so perfect and true,
You will wonder how He could see you.
You’ll see your total imperfectness,
Yet wonder of wonders, God does bless.

When we see God, when we truly see,
Our heart, mind and soul, are then set free.
A new creation, us He will make,
And to Heaven, one day He will take.

Wonder of wonders, God does bless His children!

SHOW ME THY WAYS

I lift up my heart and soul unto Thee,
Let not my enemies, triumph o’er me.
None will be ashamed, that upon You wait,
You shall usher them into, Heaven’s gate.

Show me Thy ways, teach me Thy paths,
Lead me in Thy Truth, keep me from Thy wrath,
Lord, Thou art the God, of my salvation,
How I thank You, for my preservation.

Thy loving kindness, and tender mercies,
Are there for e’er, reaching out to me.
Forgive my transgressions, for they are great,
Reach out to me in mercy, not hate.

I am Your child, O Lord, that feareth Thee,
The way that You choose, teach unto me.
I desire that my soul, at ease shall dwell,
I yearn for Heaven, I want no part of Hell.

My eyes are ever, looking toward You,
Please keep my feet, on the path right and true.
Look upon my affliction, and my pain,
Your love and mercy, to me are great gain.

Psalm 25

SIGNS

There are many signs that do not exist,
When to Jesus your life you commit.
Signs that we see each and ev’ry day,
When approaching Jesus, won’t be display’d!

“Out to Lunch” --- this sign you will never see,
For Jesus is ‘on call’ constantly!
He never takes time off, day or night,
So --- He’ll be there! no matter our plight!

This sign you’ll never see “Computer down,”
‘Tis stressful, and really makes me frown!
Tho’ systems of the world go askew,
The data base of Christ, always runs true!

“Take a number” --- this sign you’ll never see,
We’ll not have to stand in line, you and me!
We need not eagerly ‘wait our turn,’
We can go ‘at once’ with our concerns.

“Business hours are from 9 to 5,”
This sign you’ll never see, as you strive.
24 hours a day, 7 days a week,
Jesus’ door is open when Him you seek!

“Out of order” is a sign you’ll not find,
When you access the Lord, e’er so kind.
He never malfunctions, or breaks down,
A blessing, for it won’t cause us to frown.

“Closed for vacation” a sign not to be found,
Tho’ here on Earth, they greatly abound.
Jesus never, ever takes ‘time off,’
From the ‘Bride’ to whom He did betroth.

So many signs that infuriate,
Signs that disappoint and make you wait.
None of those signs you will ever see,
When you access the Lord of eternity.

SPIRITUAL EYES AND EARS
Luke 24:31 And their eyes were opened, and they knew him; and he vanished out of their sight. 32 And they said one to another, Did not our heart burn within us, while he talked with us by the way, and while he opened to us the scriptures? (KJV)
Proverbs 1:5 A wise man will hear, and will increase learning; and a man of understanding shall attain unto wise counsels: (KJV)
John 14:6  Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me. (KJV)

Most have physical eyes, but they just cannot see,
That Christ Jesus is God, of all eternity.
The eyes of their understanding, remain closed,
It seems that to the Truth, they want not to be exposed.

These with their eyes shut, cannot see things clearly,
Their eyes see only those things, which are worldly.
Lewdness, lust, materialism and greed,
Those with physical eyes, just to these things pay heed.

Lord, give me spiritual eyes, that I may see,
All the awesome wonders, of Your majesty!
Let my heart burn, with the Truth of Your Holy Word,
That I may know, eternal life from me is not barred!

Most have physical ears, but they just cannot hear,
In one ear, out the other, the Truth disappears.
People do not care, about the Truth God reveals,
Their only concern in this life, is how they feel.

These with their ears shut, cannot hear what is said,
Their ears hear only those things, which cause them no dread.
Arrogance, deception and self-righteousness,
Those with physical ears, just to these things access

Lord, give me spiritual ears, that I may hear,
Your precious Words of Truth, we should hold dear.
 Blessed is he that reads, and they that hear God’s Words,
For they shall in time, receive their due rewards!

Many are they, that speak evil of things they know not,
Rejecting the Truth, that Jesus, their souls bought.
Refusing to believe, Jesus is the only Way,
That “road” is too narrow, is what they say.

The Lord Jesus, on that rugged old cross died,
He gave His life for us, He was crucified!
He paid sin’s debt for me, that He did not owe,
Which keeps me from that horrible place below!

Seven Reasons why the Bible is NOT understood
#1. Man’s reasoning, which brings on doubt and unbelief (Mk.8:17).
#2. Lack of discernment, implying dullness (Mk.8:17).
#3. Ignorance, indicating lack of interest and study (Mk.8:17).
#4. Hardness of heart, meaning stubbornness and rebellion (Mk.8:17).
#5. Eyes that cannot see, which is simply willful blindness to Truth (Mk.8:18; Mat.13:14-15).
#6. Ears that will not hear, which is willful rejection of Truth (Mk.8:18).
#7. Dull memory, suggesting willful forgetfulness (Mk.8:18).

My friend, ALL these reasons are conscious, deliberate, malicious and willful. People should NOT reason, doubt, question, harden their hearts, be dull of seeing and hearing, or be forgetful of what God has done for us. There is NO excuse whatsoever for any of us not to believe the Bible. We all should have enough faith in Christ to meet our every problem.

Those who refuse to consider eternity have a huge problem! Our souls are eternal and shall spend eternity in ONE of two places: Heaven OR Hell! There is a Judgment Day coming! Believe it! Open your eyes! Open your ears and listen to what is said about the Truth of the Bible!

SPIRITUAL SIGHT

A truly wondrous Gift, is spiritual sight,
You need not walk, in darkness black as night.
Jesus has the pow’r, to make you God’s child,
You no longer need, from God be exiled.

Most people have eyes, yet they cannot see,
Physical eyes can’t see, spiritually.
Your heart must be open’n, to let Christ in,
Open your heart’s door, turn away from sin.

If you ever want to see, spiritually,
And if you want to live, eternally,
There’s only one Answer, one road to take,
Jesus, your Saviour and Lord, you must make.

When Christ comes into your life, you will then see,
All the things you couldn’t see, spiritually.
Things will never be the same, your life has changed,
When Christ comes in, your heart He’ll rearrange!

Just Christ Jesus, can open your eyes wide,
Just He can give His Spirit to reside.
He’ll prepare for you a place, in Heav’n above,
Out of the goodness, of His awesome love!

When we look at things, in a spiritual light,
Our minds are relieved, from all worldly plights.
We have peace within, as never before,
Such abundant peace, Jesus holds in store!

Spiritual sight can see, your “mansion” above,
Spiritual sight can see, God’s awesome love!
Without Christ, we’d end up in Hell,
And there for e’er, in agony dwell.

STEPS IN SALVATION

The first step in salvation, is believe,
When the Gospel is heard, it you must receive.
The Lord Jesus, you must trust and accept,
For just He alone, from Hell can protect.

Faith in Jesus as Saviour, stops God’s wrath,
When we walk with the Lord, on the right path.
Justified by faith, means we’re not guilty,
Our sins are forgiven, and we are guilt free.

Sanctification, is what we next find,
Set apart for God, which eases our mind.
Baptism by the Spirit, does sanctify,
Means we’re God’s child, and us, He won’t deny.

Glorification, the last we come to,
God’s children will be glorified, me and you.
We’ll all be changed, to a sinless body,
This mortal must put on, immortality.

No sinner shall gain entrance, at Heav’n’s Gate,
Our bodies must be changed, to participate.
Christ shall change our vile body, He has pow’r,
Then we’ll join Him in Heav’n, for e’er, ev’ry hour!

STOP ME

Stop me from doing what I would do,
Lord, let me always depend on You.
Don’t ever let me go off half cock’d,
For the result may leave me in shock.

Stop me from going against Your will,
Would You with Your Holy Spirit fill.
I pray that I always please You lord,
Let me serve You in willing accord.

Stop me when I get too rush’d to pray,
Help me to chase all worries away.
In Your Hand, let me put my concerns,
When I’m troubl’d, let me to You turn.

Stop me when I think I know it all,
Keep Your foolish child, from a great fall.
Such a mistake, is all vanity,
Lord, let me always look first to Thee.

Stop me when I think I know what’s best,
Let me instead with Your wisdom be bless’d.
For all my foolishness, please forgive me,
Let me do Your will, Lord, willingly!

Submission

What happens, when to God you submit?
You now no longer, His will resist.
You are now in Christ, and He in you,
And it’s just His will, you want to do.

You now willingly, co-operate,
You no longer now, ev’n hesitate.
When we submit, God’s will we desire,
We want out of, this world’s much and mire.

Submitting to God, is a wise thing,
God repays us, with many blessings.
We are wise, if we do things God’s way,
It always makes for, a better day!

Living as God wants, is always right,
We must walk with Jesus, in His Light.
We must get off, the devil’s broad path,
For we want none of, God’s Holy wrath.

Do you reject God? And Him resist?
Does Satan keep at you? Does he persist?
Make a v’ry wise decision this day,
Submitting to God, helps keep trouble away!

Lord, I lift up my soul unto Thee,
Let Your light shine brightly over me.
Lord, I trust You, now and for always,
Guide me on right paths, teach me Thy ways.

Let me never be ashamed of You,
In anything that I say or do.
Teach me Lord, and unto Thy Truth lead,
Let me serve You, as Your Word I heed.

Remember not my sins when I was young,
Nor the sins of my uncontrolled tongue.
For Thy goodness sake, have mercy on me,
Teach me, that I might not sin against Thee.

Good and upright are You, in all Your ways,
The meek You will guide and teach each day.
All of Your paths are Truth and mercy,
A humble request Lord; teach me, teach me.

Lord, pardon my sin, for it is vast,
Let my disobedience be in the past.
Let my soul within me, dwell at ease,
Teach me Lord, for it’s You I want to please.

The secret to You Lord, You we should fear,
Then Your love and mercy, will always be near.
Lord, let my eyes be ever toward You,
Teach me Lord, so I’ll always be true.

Psalm 25

TALKING THE TALK

There are multitudes, who talk the talk,
But so very few, who walk the walk.
So many, their love for Christ profess,
But in their hearts, Christ, they do not possess.

“I’m a Christian,” many people say,
Yet they live in sin, ev’ry single day.
They talk the talk, without hesitation,
But they don’t walk the walk, to salvation.

Walking the walk, is not easy to do,
And it is only done, by a few.
But ev’n the faithful, sometimes backslide,
So we must stay close, and in Him abide.

Many hypocrites, in the world today,
They say they love God, but never obey.
They walk on roads, where they should not go,
As they speed downward, to Hell’s sorrow.

Do you walk the walk, or just talk the talk?
Do you obey the Lord, or do you balk?
Just talking the talk, will get you to Hell,
And there for e’er, in agony you’ll dwell.

We must walk the walk, and the Lord obey,
Heav’n cannot be reached, by any other way.
Trust and obey, believe God’s Word so clear,
If you want His eternal Presence near.

THANK  HIM  FOR  EVERYTHING . . . Nov.1997 Message

Thank Him for the sunshine, and for the rain,
The beautiful birds and their sweet refrain.
Thank Him for the morning, dewey and bright,
And for the sunset, that comes before night.

Thank Him for all your loved ones so dear,
And abundant blessings, year after year.
Thank Him each morn’ as you rise from your bed,
With Him on your side, you’ve nothing to dread!

Thank Him for your home, and the food you eat,
The clothes you wear, and the shoes on your feet.
Thank Him for friends He has given to you,
They are special blessings we can’t construe.

Though at times they seem our nerves to fray.
But in the end, they will benefit you,
Making you stronger to see you through.

Thank Him for our family in the Lord,
Always love them, and be in one accord.
Thank Him each time you come in the church door,
Remember you came to praise and adore.

Thank Him for Jesus, our Saviour and Lord,
And for the Gospel that comes by His Word.

We must tell others, or their chance is dim.

Sent to us sinners, from the Father above.
We thank you for life in Heaven beyond,
Where we’ll live with you, since you we have found.

THANK YOU LORD

Thank You precious Lord, for little things,
I should thank You for the smallest blessing!
A smile, a hug, a friendly hello,
Are blessings from You, that You bestow!

Thank You for little things You do for me,
Such as an unexpected courtesy.
Things I fail to mention when I pray,
Nicities of life, that come my way!

For little things You do, I thank You,
Like fellowship with a friend so true.
A thoughtful deed done in lovingkindness,
Just another way that You do bless!

For these little things, that come my way,
So often I forget, when I pray.
Let me be more aware of Your grace,
‘Til that day I stand with You, Face to face!

Help me to walk with You in accord.

Thank You Lord, for blessings You bestow,
You are there, when I cry in sorrow.
All the times I stumble, You are there,
And You lift me up, because You care.

Thank You Lord, for You answer my call,
No matter what trouble may befall.
You are there in the blink of an eye,
When I call to You, You ne’er deny.

Thank You Lord, for inexpressible love,
This care and concern comes just from above.
Compassion from You, like a river flows,
‘Tis a privilege that my Saviour I know.

Thank You Lord, for Your abundant grace,
I’m grateful that this blessing I taste.
You never give more that I can bear,
For all my burdens, You gladly share.

Thank You Lord, for You forgive my sins,
But just with You, can this battle I win.
Satan tries hard, to take me away,
From Your loving arms, each single day.

Thank You for my “mansion” You prepar’d,
Where I’ll spend eternity in Your care.
Thank You Lord, because You are You,
And from Hell’s misery, You did rescue.

THAT  FATEFUL  DAY

Did you ever consider that fateful day?
When God will take you from this Earth, far away?
Just where will He send you? just where will you go?
To be with Him in Heav’n? or to Hell below?

Our body returns to the dust of the land,
But what about the spirit, God gave to man?
It lives forever, not destroyed, nor asleep,
Either in Heav’n above, or in Hell, He’ll keep.

Did you ever consider that fateful day?
We have no power, the day of death to sway.
‘Tis appointed by God to men, once to die,
No mortal can change that, as hard as they try.

The death of God’s children, is precious to Him,
The spirit goes back to God, bright day, or night dim.
But, if you have rejected Jesus, God’s Son,
Your shame, contempt, and troubles, have just begun.

If you don’t know Jesus as Saviour today,
Change your destination of that fateful day.
He’s waiting at your heart’s door, wanting inside,
Open, accept Him, and in Heav’n, you’ll abide.

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 BIBLE

When I get weary, the Bible is my Bed,
 When I hunger, it is my daily Bread.
When it is dark, the Bible is my Light,
When I fear, it is Armor for my fright.

When I am lost, the Bible is my Guide,
When I’m hemm’d in, it opens doors so wide!
When I feel naked, it clothes me rich and warm,
When I’m tempest toss’d, ‘tis a refuge from the storm!

The Bible is a Sun, when gloom does depress,
Changing a dreary day, to one of brightness!
When I feel I’m sinking, in deadly quicksand,
The Bible reaches out, and grabs my weary hand!

When I feel as if, nothing at all I know,
Knowledge and wisdom, from the Bible flow!
When I feel lonely, great friends I find therein,
When I’m ill, the Bible, is my best Medicine!

Struggling in life, the Bible gives me wings,
Consolation and pow’r, it truly brings!
When the world around, seems ugly and bare,
The Bible is a Garden, of beauty so fair!

The Bible gives comfort, by showing God’s love,
And great joy of knowing, there’s Heav’n above!
There’s a “mansion” for me, waiting up there,
And a wondrous Saviour, who truly cares!

God will forgive us, the Bible does tell,
And we can for eternity, in Heav’n dwell!
But we must trust Christ, who is so perfect,
And Him as Saviour and Lord, we must accept!

THE BIBLE DOES NOT EXAGGERATE

The Bible, only the Truth does tell,
It speaks of Heav’n, but also of Hell.
Heav’n is a place, of bliss and glory,
While Hell is a place, of agony.

The Bible clearly states, wrong from right,
It tells us to avoid, Satan’s throng.
The eternal God, wants us to know,
To His Home on High, He wants us to go.

Many Promises to us, God makes,
Such as, “I’ll ne’er leave you, nor forsake.”
All God’s Promises, are ours to claim,
Let us claim them, in Christ Jesus’ Name.

When troubles arise, where do you look?
Have you e’er thought of, God’s Holy Book?
All correct answers, can come your way,
If you are wise, you’ll do it today,

The Bible does not, exaggerate,
On the worth of Jesus, O’ so great.
It speaks of His awesome love, so true,
And what He endured, for me and you.

Have you e’er consider’d, what He has done?
This Man, God’s only begotten Son.
He paid a sin debt, He did not owe,
So we’d not have to go, to Hell below.

Exaggeration, God’s Word does not do,
All its pages, are completely true.
What it states about Christ, you must believe.
Or the glory of Heav’n, you’ll not achieve.

THE VOICE OF THE LORD

The ‘Voice of the Lord’ speaks oft’ to me,
Warning of sin and iniquity!
Trying to show right roads to take,
Trying to keep me from bad mistakes!

The ‘Voice of the Lord’ speaks to my heart,
Love and comfort to me it imparts!
It tells me just how much He does care,
Wants me of His love, to be aware!

The ‘Voice of the Lord’ to me does speak,
Assures me of His pow’r when I’m weak!
For I know without Him, I am nothing,
O how I love my Saviour and King!

The ‘Voice of the Lord’ speaks soft and low,
Each time I hear it, it makes me glow!
For it always leads in all right ways,
Leading me onward to Heav’n’s arrays!

The ‘Voice of the Lord’ sounds above the sea,
It’s filled with power and majesty!
It can boom as thunder in a storm so fierce,
Or e’er so softly, your heart it can pierce.

The ‘Voice of the Lord’ can be filled with wrath,
For those who refuse to walk on His path.
Those who reject Him, and won’t believe,
His Voice one day will say: “Hell you receive.”

The ‘Voice of the Lord’ can be filled with love,
Just simply believe our God from above!
Trust and accept Him, and His Voice obey,
For to access Heav’n, there’s NO other way!

THERE TO GUIDE

He leads me to green pastures and cool still waters,
Guiding me truly, so nothing else matters.
He has promised to supply our every need,
What more can we ask of Him? we ought to take heed.

To the meek He has promised to teach us His way,
Always there to guide us, during the night or day.
For He is our God, for today and forever,
With us unto death, allowing nothing to sever.

He is there to guide us with His counsel so great,
If we would but listen to Him, we could walk straight.
Most follow Satan, on the crooked path of sin,
Even many Christians, to temptations give in.

So what is the answer, as we go thru’ the day?
This I can tell you, from old Satan keep away!
Turn your eyes upon the One who really is true,
He’s always there to guide you, whatever you do!

Listen closely for that still, small voice of the Lord,
His Spirit within you, really wants to be heard!
Don’t be too busy or indifferent this day,
For He is there to guide you, each step of the way!

Scripture verses for above poem:

2 Sam.22:29; Jam.4:7-8; Jn.14:6; Rom.8:8-10,14)

THE  WILL OF  GOD

The will of God; let us contemplate,
We must magnify Him; and us deflate.
We must give Him, what to Him is due,
Worship and praise to God, great and true.

The will of God; the same for us all,
Rich folks and poor folks, the great and small.
Glorify God in all that we do,
Give God the credit; not me or you!

Our magnificent God, high above,
Filled with mercy, forgiveness, and love.
We should always glorify His Name,
Not seek for ourselves fortune and fame.

To honor Him; is the will of God,
No matter who we are, or where we trod.
We should always reverence our Lord,
Holding in awe, both He and His word.

Honoring Him; there is a best way:
Do trust and believe all He does say.
Unbelief is telling God He lies,
And that unbelief, He does despise.

THY WILL BE DONE

Do you truly know, that God does care?
When you go to the Father in pray’r?
Can you pray in faith? “Thy will be done?”
Or do you doubt, ev'n 'fore you’ve begun?

“Thy will be done, Lord,” is what we should ask,
No matter the problem, or the task!
If we allow God, to make the choice,
He’ll give us His best, then we can rejoice!

Do you have faith, to let God decide?
In all the trials of life that betide?
Can you truly state:
“Thy will be done, Lord?”
Most cannot! for this to them is hard!

“Thy will be done,” can you honestly say?
We must do this, if we are to obey!
You simply must trust God, and believe!
Or His blessings, you will not receive!

Can you place your whole life, in God’s Hands?
Can you pray: “Thy will be done” and firmly stand?
Into your heart, mind and soul; let God fill,
With all His goodness, from His grand will!

THY WILL BE DONE

Dear Lord, let me to Your will submit,
Let me not ever, quench Your Spirit.
Let me with all my heart, Your will seek,
Let Pride flee from me, let me be meek.

As I seek Your will, keep my faith strong,
Let me not ever doubt, for that is wrong.
Let my faith not waver, let me believe,
That guidance from You, I shall receive.

Thy will be done Lord, not ever mine,
Any glory there is, let it be Thine.
Let me allow You, to lead me each day,
As You shed Your great Light, on my way.

When I come to a mountain, ever so steep,
I know in my heart, my steps You will keep.
I must trust You Lord, but I must obey,
If I expect help, from You each new day.

Let me trust You always, let me not fear,
Let me feel Thy Presence, ever so near.
Let me seek Your will, in all that I do,
For to You dear Lord, I want to stay true.

Your wisdom Lord, not mine, will I trust,
Your will in my life, is simply a must.
My wisdom is ever so foolish to You,
I want Your will Lord, in all that I do.

THY WILL BE DONE

Thy will be done Lord, Thine and Thine alone,
I humbly ask, that today’s paths be shown.
Pride and worldly wisdom Lord, I do fear,
I pray Your loving presence, always be near.

Thy will be done Lord, always in all things,
This to me Lord, is an amazing blessing.
Don’t let me hurry, and do things ‘my’ way,
For I will truly regret it, some future day.

Thy will be done Lord, always in my life,
When my will takes hold, it always brings strife.
Lord, let me always let Your Spirit guide,
And let Your perfect will always be applied.

Thy will be done Lord, let me put my trust in Thee,
Write Your law on my heart, for eternity.
Humbly I ask, please teach me to do thy will,
And each day of my life, with Your Spirit fill.

Thy will be done Lord, for I’m one of the “few,”
Let my thoughts, words and deeds be pleasing to You.
Let me always imitate, Jesus my Lord,
Let me always live, by Your Holy, pure Word.

THY WILL BE DONE, LORD

Thy will be done O Lord, never mine,
For I want Your Light, always to shine.
Things done my way, brings trouble to me,
For I will have nothing, but misery.

Thy will be done O Lord, ev’ry day,
I ask Your guidance, in all my ways.
I must keep that narrow road in my sight,
Let me always walk, in Your glorious Light.

Thy will be done O Lord, this I ask,
For I want Your wisdom, in all my tasks.
Guide me with Your counsel so wise,
Don’t let me e’er Your wisdom despise.

Gracious Lord I pray, Thy will be done,
Let me walk willingly, with Your Son.
Tho’ the road may get rocky and steep,
I know my Saviour, will safely keep.

Thy will be done, let me shatter my pride,
I must be meek, if You are to abide.
Let me cast my pride, far, far away,
For just meek ones, will You lift up one day.

Thy will be done, let me never fear,
For You promise, to always be near.
All my fear, perfect love casts out,
When I trust You, gone is my doubt.

Thy will be done Lord, let it prevail,
I must glorify You, I must not fail.
To ask for Thy will, I’m not afraid.
For when trouble comes, You’re there to aid.

THY WILL, LORD

Thy will, Lord, not mine; tho’ dark it be,
For You shall lead, and light the path for me.
Tho’ rough and steep the path, I know ‘tis best,
For Heav'n awaits, when I top the crest!

Thy will, Lord; I would not choose, if I might,
For your way is better, and always right!
Tho’ I seek Heav’n, I ask You show the way,
For the choice I make, might lead my soul astray!

Thy will, Lord; my days with joy or sorrow fill,
For You shall always, your best to me instill!
Tho’ I may desire, just good, nice things,
I’ll trust your judgment, in what life brings!

Thy will, Lord, not mine, in sickness and health,
For You rightly lead, in poverty and wealth!
Tho’ in great or small things I choose,
I could be wrong; but with You, I’ll not lose!

Thy will, Lord, not mine; always let me trust,
For to win your favor, faith is a must!
The path may be dark now, but the end bright,
For your will Lord, leads to Heav’n’s light!

TRANSITION TIME

Life on Earth is a time of transition,
We must take this into consideration’
This time is given for us to decide,
Where, in eternity, we will abide.

This is a topic most tend to neglect,
And only on today, do they reflect.
I ask that you consider, seriously,
Just where will you live for eternity?

Belief in Jesus, will place you in Heav’n,
Reject Him, my friend, and Hell will be giv’n.
Believe on Jesus; God will not condemn,
Instead, you will be, one of God’s children.

Transition from Earth, to another place,
I ask you this day, will you see His Face?
He’s not willing that any should perish,
But, His Son, you must accept, and cherish!

Your soul lives forever; the Bible tells,
In Heaven, or Hell; which place will you dwell?
Heaven is where our wondrous God abides,
Hell is where Satan’s children reside.

Transition time: have you thought about it?
Where will God send your immortal spirit?
For those who believe, blissful Heav’n awaits,
But those who reject Christ will be shown Hell’s gate.

WHERE ARE WE?

On His Shoulder, you’d be if you got lost,
Jesus would find you, no matter the cost.
He’d search the wilderness, ‘til He found you,
Our Great Shepherd, is faithful and true.

In His Great Hand, we are safe and secure,
We’ll never perish, but always endure.
Eternal life, to us He has giv’n,
He’s promis’d to us, a mansion in Heav’n.

At His precious Feet, let us choose the good part,
Let’s listen and learn, and never depart.
His Words will always, make a better day,
Lighting our path and showing us the way.

On His loving Bosom, leaning so near,
Fellowship with Him, removes our fear.
Jesus loves us, let us with Him abide,
And one wondrous day, in Heav’n we’ll reside.

WITHOUT YOU

Without You, I can do nothing at all,
I stumble around, and completely fall.
So many obstacles get in my way,
I need Your wisdom, to show the right way.

Without You Lord Jesus, it’s dark as night,
I can’t ev’n o’ertake my smallest plight.
I know You must think, I should soon learn,
Yet Your blessed knowledge, I seem to spurn.

Without You Lord, my nourishment is gone,
I am as a dead branch, I’m the devil’s pawn.
There’s no strength to get me thru’ ev’n one hour,
Temptations o’ercome me, without Your pow’r.

Without You, I build on stubble and straw,
My house will fall, for it’s feeble and flaw’d.
My works will burn, if I don’t build on You,
I need You Lord, to show me what to do.

As the years pass by, I learn more and more,
Without You I’ll never see, Heaven’s shore.
Without You Lord, I have no righteousness,
For only WITH You, will the Father bless.

Without You I’ll never be justified,
By God the Father, I will be denied.
Without You forgiv’n, my sins would ne’er be,
And I’d be in Hell for eternity.

Without You, I’d be doom’d, which e’er way I’d go,
I would have agony, and great sorrow.
I’m glad I chose to live, my life WITH You,
I praise You Lord, that I’m one of the “few.”
