Divine Rhymes 100 + continues my observations about situations in life in respect to how God views them or how we need God to survive.

 

At the end of writing Divine Rhymes, I thought this particular divine assignment was done since I was originally instructed to stop at 52 poems, one for each week of the year in Divine Rhymes.   However, poems continued to pour out stronger than ever.  Thus the birth of Divine Rhymes II.  

 

As with Divine Rhymes, this second book of inspirational poetry was also divinely inspired as titles for poems came from everywhere faster than I could write the poems themselves; church sermons, phrases from friends, situations on television, personal thoughts, just to name a few

 

The entire collection in Divine Rhymes II was written eight weeks from the Lord’s planted seed for me to write them.   On some days I would simply hear a phrase, which inspired a title.   This was an exciting process for me as I have never been inspired to write poetry at this rate in my life.  I then combined the two books into Divine Rhymes 100+.

 

May these poems be a blessing to you reading them as they have been to me while writing them.

God's Love

God's love abounds and knows no end
Beyond true love or your closest friend.
He loves us when we are not our best
And sees us through the toughest test.

Life's rough beatings can take their toll
Pulling you towards the "darkness" pole.
But don't forget there's help above,
The power that's hidden in God’s love.

Some seek fame and fortune galore,
Worshipping money you only want more.
Addictions of every kind around,
Without His love you will go down.

His grace He gives to you and me,
Nothing we've earned He gives it free.
But there are perks for those who believe,
We'll be with Him when its time to leave.

What else to say about God's love,
It extends beyond, over and above.
So seek His love and you'll soon find
He is the key to peace of mind.

Healed a Troubled Mind

Whenever you're troubled
No matter the odds.
Never be afraid
To turn to God.

Love from Him
Flows like a fountain.
Faith in Him
Can move that mountain.

Never say "won't"
Or even "can't do."
The love of God
Will guide you through.

Can't find your mind
Can't find your way.
Just reach to God
On your knees and pray.

Give Him your heart, give Him your all
His love is one of a kind.
He always knows exactly what's needed
To heal a troubled mind.

Living by the Word

For most of my life I've done my best
To be in total control.
That can cause more harm than good
If you let the truth be told.

Total control is telling God
You need no help from Him.
While in reality without His help
Your chances are very slim.

Living by the Word of God
Gives purpose to your life.
Sometimes your purpose is in the midst
Of trauma, pain and strife.

Everything you do in life
You must apply the Word.

Lust, desires and all your goals
Have a proper place in His Word.

So have no fear when called "fanatic"
For loving your God so true.
You're called that by the ones who have
No Word in their heart, they're blue.

“The Secret Place

He who dwells in the "secret place"
Is surrounded by the power of God.
A place to go in time of need
No matter what the odds.

For in the "secret place" of God
His shelter does ease your mind.
A place where joy and peace are one,
To leave your problems behind.

There is no place for fear's strong hand
Anxiety or even doubt.
It's putting your "total" trust in Him,
Cause fear you can do without.

Consider all those who really don't know
The comfort found in the Lord.
It's then our job to share with them
Being saved is not being bored.

He who dwells in the "secret place"
Knows healing starts in the mind.
So guard your thoughts, it's up to you,
There're distractions of every kind.

 I Call Upon You Lord

I call upon you Lord right now
To ease this troubled mind.
Can't seem to shake bad thoughts
Good thoughts are hard to find.

Not trying to show any disrespect
Cause Lord you know I'm true.
Just trying to get my thoughts in line
So your Word can really come through.

At times it's hard to walk that walk
Dark times when I can't see,
The glory of Your majesty
Your blessings at work in me.

It's in those times I feel Your hand
Move through like you parted the Sea.
Then all at once the weight is gone
Once again Your love saved me.

Lord, please take these thought of mine
Don't know what else to do.
You said call You in time of need
So I lift them all to You.

Faith Is...

"Faith is the evidence of things not seen"
But keeping the faith is the test.
It's trusting in God that it'll come to pass,
While waiting we must do our best.

"Looking not at the things that are seen"
Is the first step we should do.
For in that step we are building our faith
In the Lord who will see us through.

Worrying, pacing and sleepless nights
Is not what it's all about.
For those are signs that your faith is weak
Cause the opposite of faith is doubt.

Keep a record of the smallest things
The Lord has done in your life.
You'll see He's never ever let you down
But there are lessons in strife.

Each one of us has a "measure of faith"
That measure can be changed over time,
The closer relationship you have with God
Can crush that doubt put your faith in line.

A Prayer from Despair

Lord I call you from the depths of despair,
Don't know what else to do.
I'm holding on to the Word by a thread
Trying to put my trust in You.

Lustful desires trying to pull me down
To the Pit where no one  stands.
I can only hold on to the single thought
That my pain God understands.

Being told there is no hope in You,
No need to stop and pray.
"No hope is coming from your Father above,
In the depths you're here to stay."

"Get thee behind me, you demon of doubt,
There's one thing you can't see.
You think you're winning but I've got news,
God still watches over me.”

Though I feel my spirit is ripped to shreds
And there's nothing else I can do.
I'll call You, Lord, till I breathe no more,
Cause I put my trust in You.

End Times

End times are here for those who believe
And are keeping up with the Word.
But there are many who don't believe
Whose cries will soon be heard.

Some live their lives and give no thought
To what does lie ahead.
But when it comes down as in the Word
Nothing more will be said.

Sin, addictions of every kind
Runs rampant across the land.
If they could see what lies in wait
I'm sure they'd understand.

Pain and fire and nashing of teeth
From which there is no death.
Cursing the days you lived in sin
Now fire is your only breath.

For me that is no road to take
Under any circumstance,
End times are near you better take heed
God's way is your only chance.

Why You Choose to Sin?

What's going on in your mind
When you stop and choose to sin?

Do you ever stop to think about
All the trouble that you're in?

Choosing darkness over light
Don't know why you feel so low.

Satisfying all your lusts
"Holy Spirit, you've got to go!"

What's going on in your mind
Do you think the Lord won't know?
Do you really think the Lord won't see
Your sin everywhere you go.

Sinning is a very selfish act,
It's pleasure over self-control,
It pulls you down to the lowest depths
Until you've lost your soul.

Why choose the ways of darkness
When the Lord has shown the way?
Don't think there'll be another chance
Once the Lord has had His say.

Resting In the Lord

Rushing through life at break-neck speed
Eating your meals on the run.

Getting little sleep rushing to the next day
Never resting when your day is done.

"Come to me all ye who labor
And I will give you rest.”

The Lord's own words are very plain
In Him you'll be your best.

You rip and race trying to be in control
While the Lord waits for your call.

But your call never comes - don't have the time
Cause you're busy trying to do it all.

"Call upon Me, I will show you great things"
Says the Lord trying to show the way.
When you rest in Him you will get more done
Cause you can't do it all anyway.

"I cast all my care on You, O Lord,"
As Your Word tells me to do.
I've been so busy trying to do everything
Til' I found my rest in You.

Pressures Placed on Love

There are pressures placed on love
When you're trying to do it right.
Pressures trying to take your mate
And pull them to the night.

In the night there are no rules
Only those who're filled with lust.
Destroying all the things you've built
Your loyalty and your trust.

There are those who say that marriage
Is a farce and nothing real.
They say that love will fade away
Your mate they're set to steal.

It's the time to put your relationship
In God's almighty hand.
He’ll then protect your love and mate
And your marriage, it will stand.

Don't listen to all the voices
Set to pull you two apart.
Lift your mate in prayer unto the  Lord
He'll see you never part.

God is My Only Source

God knows when the money is low
Knows when the cupboard is bear.
But even in the midst of this seeming drought
He lets me know He's there.

Sometimes the drought's to let you know
You're drifting way off track.
At times it takes a nudge from God
To go and bring you back.

The real test comes when God tells you
To give up your last dime.
You'll find there're blessings hidden within
Your obedience every time.

Sometimes the reasons for your drought
Are too numerous to mention.
If you're to blame and are out of line
God will get your attention.

So what's the key to get your life
And all your funds on track?
It's knowing God's your only Source
Who never suffers lack.

Thank You, Lord!

Thank you Lord for every day
Every single breath I take.
For being right there, in the midst
Of every choice I make.

Thank you Lord for giving me strength
When it’s time for me to be tough.
When things just seem to fall apart
And the road ahead is rough.

Thank you for your patience
When it seems I've gone adrift.
Thank you for your love and grace
Which gives me such a lift.

Thanks for all the little things
That mean so much to me,
I never want to take those things for granted
Cause I was too busy to see.

There’s so much I wish to thank you for
Don't really know where to begin.
But thank you Lord for Calvary
For taking away all my sins.

Praise God Anyhow!

"Praise the Lord at all times"
Even if you don't know how.
Praise Him for the things He's done
In your life back then and now.

Praise Him in the good times
Praise Him in the bad.
When praise goes up blessings come down
Like none you've ever had.

Praise Him when you don't feel like praisin'
Praise Him while going through hell.
Praise Him for your victory
And the testimony you'll have to tell.

I don't hesitate to praise the Lord
For the way He's moved through me.
For even His smallest blessings each day
Are like the parting of the mighty Red Sea.

No matter what the challenge you face in life
You praise God anyhow.
Remember all the things He's done for you
In your life back then and now.

 “Perfect Peace”

 

“Thou will keep him in perfect peace

Whose mind is stayed on Thee."

That verse from the Word is to let us know

How peaceful we should be.

 

Clearing your mind of the stresses of life

Anxiety all over the place.

People at your job causing much more stress

When they put their problems in your face.

 

Finances and bills trying to get their share

Of your attention when there's not that much.

It's no wonder in the face of all this mess

We have to stop and seek God's touch.

 

It's hard to reach the state of peace of mind

If you don't stay in touch with God.

Only through His Word can you find that peace

And still some think that's odd.

 

For only when you give the Lord all your mess

Will you ever start to feel release.

For only in the hands of Almighty God

Will your stress be transformed to peace.

A Prayer From My Soul

I awake some days, eyes filled with tears, 
Forgetting You're the answer to all my fears. 
I remember the times that you came through 
Finding peace of mind when I trusted you. 

Your Word is food on which I feed.

You give me help in time of need.
Your grace is endless, beyond comprehension 
Never ceasing to give your divine attention. 

I must admit I've made plenty of mistakes 
Falling short cause I know just what it takes, 
To live my life guided by Your Word 
And share it with others who haven't heard. 

I commit my life and give all to You
With You there's nothing I cannot do. 

Hard times can come and go as they may 
But trusting You, Lord, is the only way.

Power Over Fear

“God did not create a spirit of fear

But of love, power and a sound mind.”

Thus it says in the Word of the Lord

To have no fear of any kind.

 

Fear sneaks in and blocks your mind

Your thoughts all filled with doubt.

Looking for answers and feeling lost

Is a feeling you can life without.

 

Your mouth gets dry, heart beating fast

Then stress sets in for the kill.

I must stand fast no matter how it seems

For God does love me still.

 

Answer all fear with the Word of God

Thoughts of fear - step aside!

Even if you feel you have nothing to say

Don’t let your main fault be pride.

 

You can’t go wrong - put it to a test

When thoughts of fear grip your life.

Drop to your knees, call to the Lord

He’ll come and take away your strife.

Wait on the Lord

A farmer plants seed - puts it in the ground
He lets it grow on its own.
He doesn’t dig it up to see what’s going on
He must wait until that seed is grown.

When we plant a seed in life today
Why can’t we let it be?
We’re busy trying to watch the growth
To see what we can see.

The real power of the little seed we plant
Is what happens underground.
The seed takes root and begins to grow
Without us hanging around.

The test for us – we have to wait
The lesson is deep within.
If we disturb the seed we’ve sown
The growth may never begin.

“Wait on the Lord and all His might”
In the Lord’s time we will see,
That we must wait - the seed will grow
Into the blessing that it will be.

Frustration's Snare

Lord, I’m trying my best to hold on
To your Word and all within.
But frustration’s beating me down a bit
Trying to fill my head with sin.

"Look not at the things that are seen"
I'm trying to do what You said.
Sometimes that's easier said than done
When you have no funds or bread.

As I read the scriptures on and on
Depression’s on my tail.
Trying to say, “There is no God”
And therefore I will fail.

I hold on to your promises, Lord,
I cast my cares on Thee,
Knowing that it’s You one day
Who in time will save me.

You can beat me with frustration
And I’ll take it all in stride.
No matter what you do to me
I will love the Lord with pride.

Power in the Blood

 

I cast you out you demons of doubt

Trying to come and steal my joy.

You have no place - no need to try

No matter what tactics you employ.

 

Tell your boss, the devil

That he has no hold on me.

Cause Jesus paid it all for me

When He died on Calvary.

 

When Jesus died and rose again

He put you in your place.

You’ve had no power since that day

Don’t even have a case.

 

I know there’s power in the blood

When Jesus died for me.

No need for you to spread your lies

Cause Jesus set me free.

 

Take heed you demons - leave me be

The Lord is in this place,

No matter what you do to me

I’ll see Him face to face.

Longing For Love

Loneliness, emptiness, longing for love

Longing for a special one,

Tired of dating and wondering when

I will finally meet someone.

 

“There is a time to love” in life

“A time to weep,” that’s true.

But the pain of loneliness is wearing me down

And I don’t know what to do.

 

Lord, take this void away from me

And fill me with Your love.

I know there’s hope and I have faith

In my heavenly Father above.

 

Let Your essence fill this void

And open my eyes to see,

The one who is to be my love

And share their life with me.

 

I know it’s written in Your Word

That love can conquer all,

I believe I will find happiness

And that love will answer my call.

Unforgiveness

 

So what they did you wrong in the past

And made you feel real low.

You let it eat you up inside

Cause you won’t let it go.

 

Unforgiveness is a shield the blocks

The blessing God has in store.

For when we refuse to forgive someone

Things go wrong even more.

 

The thought that the one who did you wrong

Never got to feel your wrath.

What if God just planned it that way

Else you would’ve gone down the wrong path.

 

You’ve got to learn to let it go

And turn your life around.

Unforgiveness festers in your soul

And will surely bring you down.

 

Lord, I commit to forgive all those

Who’s caused much pain and strife.

Lord I commit – to let it all go

So I can live my life.

Lord, You're Awesome

Lord, You're awesome - beyond compare,
I feel your presence everywhere.
No need to worry or ever fear,
For You, O Lord, are always near.

When there's trouble I call on You,
Knowing You'll tell me what to do.
You've shown me just how much You care,
You're never late - you're always there.

I thank You for your mercy and grace,
Your Hand is seen all over the place.
I feel you with me every day,
You never left me when I went astray.

I'm so glad that I'm Your child,
Not one who's lost and running wild.
Wherever I go I share Your light,
And talk to others who need to live right.

Most of all, I spread the news,
In a mixed up world with crazy views.
Lord, bless those who are out of line,
They really don't know they are out of time
.

I Remember the Days

I remember the days when I acted a fool
Not thinking about what was right.
As I look back I can't help but think
The Lord had me in sight.

Ripping and racing and chasing the girls
No control - just running amuck.
Looking at all the chances I took
Like I had all kinds of luck.

Experimenting, drinking but giving no thought
To the dangers all around.
The Lord must have been looking down on me
Any one could have brought me down.

I remember the day in the midst of lust
When the Lord first let His light shine.
From that day forth I was never the same
When the Lord said, "Son, you're mine!"

I thank you, Lord, for cleaning me out
The corruption that lived within.
I was headed to the point of no return
Down the road leading straight to sin.

Forgive Me, Lord

Forgive me, Lord, for all I done
That's made You ashamed of me.
For Lord my only goal in life
Is to be the best I can be.

The best means living life by your Word
Working hard each and every day,
Keeping distractions out of my mind
That come in and lead me astray.

Forgive me, Lord, if I have not tithed
Or done right with my wealth.
Forgive me for not taken the time
To thank You for my health.

Forgive me if I've not spread the Word
As You've said I should do.
Forgive me, Lord, I'm doing my best
To show my love for You.

I know You know about all the things
In life that challenge me.
I want You to know I'll never give up
Trying to make You proud of me.

Miracle Curve

 

Driving down the freeway on a very warm day
Up ahead came a very simple curve,
A gust of wind blew my check out the window
I could only watch my check and say, "The nerve!"

My son stopped the car then he put it in reverse
As I sadly watched my check float away,
To the middle of the freeway out of my reach
This was not a good start for my day.

"Can't run across the freeway, I might get hit!"
As I watched cars speeding by.
My only thought was "Please, help me, Lord!"
Then His help quickly came from the sky.

My mouth dropped open as the check floated up
And over all the cars whizzing past,
The real miracle came when the check came down
By my foot - I had my check at last.

I'll never forget the Lord's work that day
Not a single car had to break or swerve.
The Lord's still working in our lives today
As He proved on Miracle Curve.

You Never Really Know

You never really know how the Lord does works
Using you to brighten someone's day.
Never really know all the reasons why
We should listen every time we pray.

Sometimes your blessing is a smile
Or something you have to say.

Sometimes your blessing you don't know
But it makes somebody’s day.

It's hard to choose just who to bless
Who's fake or really real.
God knows our heart when time to give
He knows just how we feel.

To be a blessing stay in tune
With God He'll make the choice.
But if you're busy trying to do it all
You'll never hear His voice.

Bottom line is you'll never know
Whose lives your blessings touch,
For God He knows just what the need
He even knows how much.

In Tune With God

 

It's a challenge to stay in tune to God

Every second of the day.

You think you are but you're really not

Then distractions come your way.

 

The only way to improve your skill

In listening to God voice,

Is to stay in prayer every day

And then you’ll have no choice.

 

Sometimes His voice is an inner feeling

Sometimes it’s called it a hunch.

Some call it intuition

But it’ll save you in a crunch.

 

Sometimes He talks to us deep in prayer

Sometimes we’re wide awake,

You never really know just when He’ll speak

Or which contact He will make.

 

The voice of God is never wrong

His voice is loud and clear,

Just keep your focus on the Lord

His voice you’ll surely hear.

Spiritual Warfare

Tick tock round the clock
There are spirits all around.
Good and evil forever at war
Yet we don't hear a sound.

Spiritual warfare is alive and well
As forces battle each other.
But the way we see it in our world
Is how we treat each other.

Corruption, murder, suicide
Is violence at its best.
Cursing, fighting, disrespect
All caused by spiritual unrest.

Don't be so quick to judge someone
Whose temper can't be controlled.
It could be the spirit within that one
Who needs to be consoled.

"Resist the devil and he'll flee from you"
There's really no need to fear.
Keep your hedge of protection on hand
Cause God is the real boss here.

 Obedience is the Key

 

What is it that God has told you to do
And you let time pass by?
Now blessings have suddenly come to a stop

And you have the nerve to ask why.

When God tells you to do this or that
And you fight it with all your might,
You block God's blessings meant for you
If only you had done what's right

It's not that you are doing wrong
It's just that God knows best.
No matter how hard a challenge may be
Sometimes its all a test.

The test is about obedience
Are you ready to do God's will?
For if you choose to do your thing
You'll find things going downhill.

Obedience is the key to all the blessings

God has in store for you.
Following His Word and sharing with others
Is the least we have to do.

 Why Are You Here?

Have you ever asked God just why you're here
What is your purpose both far and near?
Are you the inventor of some new thing
Or are you a blessing every time you sing?

Have you ever considered your God-given gift
Or how your presence gives others a lift?
Is it meant for you with a touch to heal
Or help someone no matter how you feel?

Have you ever asked God what is your task?
You don't know by now it's time to ask.
Maybe your call is to go and preach
Or use your gift to go and teach.

Lord, give me strength to stay in line.
Don't want to live wrong and get left behind.
I'll do my best to do all I can
To spread the Word to my fellow man.

I'll work each day to stay on the path
Not be disobedient and feel Your wrath.
I'll live by your Word so that You will see
That I want to make You proud of me.

Are You Being a Blessing?

Are you being a blessing every day
Or when you think God is looking your way?
If a homeless person gives you a nod
Do you look at him as if he's odd?

Do you give to homeless when funds are low
Or give to only those you know?
Are you one who gives a frown
To those in need because they're down?

Being a blessing could be a smile
For some it has been quite awhile.
Just a look can go a long way
For those ignored throughout the day.

To feel your body is made of glass
When people look through you as they pass.
All they need is a little attention
Which helps them deal with all that tension.

Are you being a blessing the best you can
And lending a hand to your fellow man?
For God He knows just what we've done
And only He knows the reward we've won.

Player Haters

They spend their time looking down on you.
They have nothing else to do.
But the player hater is one of a kind.
Their hate is aimed at you.

Sometimes its fear and insecurity
Or jealousy at its best.
Player haters just can't stand your light
Cause you rise above their mess.

They try to be rude and mean to you
But don't understand your way.
Pay them no mind they get more upset
And have even more to say.

The  player hater acts from an empty void
He has no love for himself,
For if they knew that God's aware
They'd put that "tude" on the shelf.

Sticks and stones my break my bones
You haters on alert,
As long as God is on my side
Your words will never hurt.

Hanging On By a Thread

Being attacked from all around
I'm hanging on by a thread.
Had it not been for the Word of God
I'm sure I would have been dead.

Doubt and fear trying to enter my mind
And rip my faith apart.
Heart beating fast and breath getting short
Holding on is a work of art.

Can't sleep at night, tossing and turning
I know I'm not getting enough rest.
I don't know how long I can last
Please tell me this is a test.

Lord, I'm confused I'm following Your Word
Don't know what else to do.
Fighting to keep my faith in tact
Cause I've always trusted You.

"Look not at the things that are seen"
Is the verse that I hold true.
For I know no matter how hard it gets
That You will see me through.

So Much to be Grateful For

Somebody didn't wake up today.
They’re awake but not okay.
Somebody fell asleep at the wheel.
Somebody's lost in a world unreal.

For who knows what could've happened today
If not for the angels looking our way.
There is so much to be grateful for,
All the blessings that have come before.

Somebody walking down the street was shot
Not playing around just joking a lot.
Some have a bullet which has their name
But didn't reach its target, O bless His name!

"Nothing just happens" as it is said
It’s no coincidence that you're not dead.
It's time to thank God for all He's done
For all the victories with Him we've won.

Think of all the reasons why you are grateful.
They’re rewards for being faithful.
I thank God every time He blesses me.
Without the Lord's help where would I be.

The Spirit of Lust

Looking at things you're not suppose to see
Then asking, "What's coming over me?"
Don't want to be tempted - don't open the door!
The spirit of lust it only wants more.

Everywhere you look there's nothing but skin
Taunting you to turn your life to sin.
You don't want to lose to that fire inside
Turn your eyes to the spiritual side.

Movies, music and even TV
Give you much more than you want to see.
I really love jamming to my favorite CD
Until I see all the flesh jumping out at me.

The carnal man is alive and well
Better watch out or go straight to hell.
I wish I knew how to help folks know
That lust of the flesh is killing them slow.

I can only say, dear Lord, I pray
That folks wake up before that day.
When soon they all must show their hand
And pray the Lord will understand.

Favor Ain't Fair

People keep asking how I got my big break,
Who do I know - what decision did I make?
There was no magic- I have one thing to share.
When you following God, "favor ain't fair."

Favor is His Light shining bright on You,
It makes you stand out no matter what you do.
People all confused, pulling out their hair,
They can't understand that "favor ain't fair."

I know longer question the favor of God when
He gives me a blessing that others think odd.
Some begin to act like they really don't care
What's driving them nuts is "favor ain't fair."

The favor of God is not in your control.
He blesses you for doing what you're told.
Just follow His Word in all that you do
And soon his favor will land on you.

So let your Light shine wherever you go.
Your favor blesses others more than you know.
Don't get caught up in the negative stares.
It not your fault that "favor ain't fair."

Venomous Intent

 

They spread their venom to all they know.

They lie for fun wherever they go.

You know who they are it’s no surprise.

I talking about people who tell nothing but lies.

 

They care not about the damage that’s done

For lying to them is nothing but fun.

They don’t even know the meaning of truth

For they’ve been lying since their youth.

 

Lying one time only leads to more

Cause hiding the truth is at the core.

The master of lies has a heart of steel.

They give no thought about how you feel.

 

A little white lie soon turns to black

If you don’t understand it comes from lack.

Lack of love then replaced by tension

Soon turns to lies to get more attention.

 

So liars take heed, God’s on patrol.

Don’t lie and say you have no control.

But who’s to say only time will tell.

Will your judgment be a ticket to hell?

 The Gossiping Tongue

Why do people like to run their mouth
When they really don't know the deal,
They love to say everything they know
When they really don't know what's real.

Trying to see who's talking to who.
Is there a relationship in the mix?
The gossiping tongue that goes on and on
Soon finds themselves in a fix.

Don't dare tell them they're way off course
As they run their mouth each day,
The less they know it really shows
Now they're the latest news out today.

Some people gossip with venomous intent
Knowing everything they say will hurt,
They have no conscious - their mouth goes on
Spewing out all kinds of dirt.

Lord, touch these folks who gossip so much
Whose words cause so much pain,
Teach them how the words they speak
Will come back on them time again.

"The Pen of a Ready Writer"

The “tongue is the pen of a ready writer”
Be careful of what you say.
The words that do come out of your mouth
Is the reason you're here today.

When you speak bad words, they open the door
And bring your character down.
You're really the one who should be loved
It's your words that make others frown.

The words you speak can make you great
They can even make you fall.
The words you speak can shatter dreams
Or help your reach your call.

There's power hidden in every word
Which leads to good and bad.
You choose the road by what you say
You'll either be happy or sad.

So watch the words you speak this day
It is your God-given gift.
But the way you use this power from God
Can be used to destroy or uplift.

The One-Second Miracle

A second doesn't sound like a lot of time
With God it's so much more.
Some say the difference between life and death
Is what God has in store.

In a second you can fall asleep at the wheel
And lose control of your car.
In a second someone can take you out
Not even knowing who you are.

You could be standing in the safest place
A second later now you're gone.
You really don't know how long you have
But time just marches on.

The One-second miracle is when God moves
And saves you in the blink of an eye.
There must be a reason it happened that way
Don't you ever stop and ask Him why?

I thank you, Lord, for saving my life
When death was at my door.
There are so many who have left this world
Never knowing you had more in store.

The Devil's Darts

The devil's main job is to bring you down
I think you know by now.
In case you don't I'm taking the time
To tell you exactly how.

He throws us darts to make us think
That we’re no use to God.
He wants to make us feel like scum
That we're the one who's odd.

The devil works hard to get in your head
And lead you down his path,
But if you know the power you have
You'd let him feel God's wrath.

Don't let the darts come in your mind
And cause doubt in your heart,
Just know you are a child of God
You are His work of art.

Tell the devil’s to let you be
He won't have you this day,
With God inside His power resides
Just seek Him every day.

And I will give you rest.”

I’m holding on to that verse, O Lord,

Cause fatigue is at it’s best.

 

Constantly tired trying to hold on

I see no relief in sight.

Is for God to come and show His might.

And my love will remain the same.

Talk to the Lord

Talk to the Lord when you're feeling bad
Even when you're feeling down,
Talk to Him about your hopes and dreams
Even when no one's around.

Talk to the Lord when trembling in fear
When you feel there is no hope.

His peace will help you cope.

Talk to the Lord about all of your life
Every decision that you have to make.
Take the time to lift it all up to Him
Your problem and your worries He'll take.

Talk the Lord from the depths of despair
When your heart is racked with pain.
Even talk to Him if you're filled with doubt
When you feel like you're going insane.

When you take the time to talk to the Lord
You put your cares right in His hands.
In that precious time you're filled with peace
And you'll know that He does understand.

Can't Predict God

Ever notice how you can't out guess God
Trying to figure out what he'll do?
As soon as you do you'll soon find out
He has many more choices than you.

When is He going to bless my life
Just the thought puts a smile on my face.

I can't help but think He's laughing at me
As I rush around place to place.

Sometimes I try to chart the His path
To know what's on His mind.
Then I have to stop and laugh at myself
My God is One of a kind.

Its not your job to figure out how
God brings these things to pass.
Just drop to your knees giving Him praise
That the blessings found you at last.

There's only one way to know God's way
That’s to follow His will each day.
Then His blessings will flow into your life
And it won’t really matter which way.

Integrity?

Integrity is what you do
When you think you're all alone.
Do you act the same when you’re by yourself
Or is another side of you shown?

Picking up things that are not your own
Just because they're laying around.
Taking things home as you travel about
Like they're something that you just found.

What about supplies you bring from work
Cause you think they owe you that much.
Toilet paper, supplies and so much more
Are really not safe from your touch.

We really don't look at all this as theft
Cause it’s justified it in our mind.
The need is real is how I feel
If I'm only taking what I find.

Let's get a grip, in the eyes of God
If it's really not yours, put it back.
For God's got more than you'll ever need
He make sure you never suffer lack.

Can’t Afford To Fall

You’ve worked so hard to reach your goal
The goal to answer God’s call.
Many attacks have been thrown your way
But you can’t afford to fall.

A fall means that you lost a battle
In the war between you and sin.
Don’t let the losses get you down
As long as sin doesn’t win.

The battle goes on from day to day
Though battered you must stand tall.
The closer you get to God you’ll know
You can’t afford to fall.

You can't afford to fall in the midst
Of the struggle you must stay strong.
Take the blows but keep your eyes on God
So the fall won't last too long.

Then soon you’ll walk along His path
Your light will be seen by all.
Your purpose is then within your reach
You can’t afford to fall.

The Power of Prayer

 

The power of prayer is confusing to some

Who think it’s magic in force.

If that’s the way you look at prayer

Then you are way off course.

 

The power of prayer reaches up to God

Who lets us know He’s there.

He answers with a soothing voice

To let us know He cares.

 

Depression, loneliness and negative thoughts

Must flee when there is prayer.

God’s love and grace will give you peace

No matter what the snare.

 

The key to the power of prayer does lie

Within your faith inside.

For doubt destroys what faith you have

Then prayer is laid aside.

 

So guard the power of prayer you have

Which is your godly treasure.

The power of prayer works day and night

It’s limit too far to measure.

The Voice Of God

 

Did you think you heard a voice in your head

Unsure that’s what you heard.

Could it be that God is talking to you

And is trying to give you a word?

 

He speaks quite often every day

If we take the time to hear.

But we’re too busy many times

To know He’s even near.

 

The voice of God can be a breeze

Which gives us peace of mind.

That very same voice can be real loud

With a message of a different kind.

 

His voice can lead the way for us

When we know not what’s ahead.

He is voice can lead to a safe way out

Otherwise you might be dead.

 

The one thing about the voice of God

He will never lead you astray.

But you must take time to hear His voice

Or you’ll never find His way.

Through Their Eyes

Through the eyes of someone still unsaved
Do they see God’s Light in you?
Or do you act some other way
So they wonder what God does do?

Through their eyes do they get a cold stare
From a person they thought should care?
In order to find some T-L-C
They have to look everywhere.

Through their eyes they have to beg
Cause the world just turns them down.
Their heart is broken even more some days
When a Christian gives them a frown.

What good is the light God placed in you
If you never let it shine.
For through their eyes a single ray
Of hope is so divine.

Our job is not only to spread the good news
But to live your life by the Word.
For through their eyes they are waiting to see
If your actions speak louder than your words.

Part Of the Whole

 

The body of Christ is not just one

Who tries to do it all.

Instead the body consists of many

Each one who is answering their call.

 

We each must do our specific job

According to our gift.

Working together on one accord

We give each other a lift.

 

It’s when we do what’s meant for others

That throws us out of line.

We get confused and have to ask

“Is that your job or mine?”

 

Just like the various parts of our body

We want to do much more.

The mouth can’t smell and the eyes can’t hear

They know what they’re made for.

 

Just remember we’re all in this together

Each one is part of the whole.

With Christ at the head as we do our jobs

We’ll finally reach our goal.

EGO (Easing God Out)

 

Ego is really not a gift from God

Self-centered is what it is all about.

But if you stop to think it’s more than that

Some say it means “easing God out.”

 

It’s one thing to brag about all you’ve done

Still another thinking you’re all that.

It gets to a point you get on people’s nerves

Cause you’re acting like a little spoiled brat.

 

The person with the ego doesn’t even notice

How he’s stepping on toes after toes.

What does it matter, it’s all about him

Cause he does it wherever he goes.

 

The thing about the ego you’re on a thin line

Cause now you’re on God’s wrong side.

Head getting bigger than ever before

To the point where there’s too much pride.

 

It’s written quite plainly in the good Book

That pride does goes before the fall.

Pride out of control eases God out

So they’ll never ever hear His call.

What Am I Not Doing Right?

 

Lord,please tell me what I’m not doing right

Am I blocking my blessings being so uptight?

Lord, I don’t know what else I can do

Just hoping I’ll find the answer in You.

 

In studying scriptures, your Word is heard

Doing everything I can to spread the Word.

Where are blessings when one lives right?

Searching in tears as I sleep each night.

 

My prayers too desperate to hear You speak?

Has doubt come in and my faith’s grown weak?

Lord, give me a sign, just a ray of hope

Just knowing you’re there will help me cope.

 

My mind is tired trying to see the unknown

Is this the reaping for some seed I’ve sown?

I don’t ask for much, just a little in life

Enough to ease this continuous strife.

 

I know it’s not right to question Your plan

For You already know the struggles of man.

But no matter what I hold on to You

There’s nothing else I know that I can do.

The Green-Eyed Monster

 

Friends getting blessed more and more each day

But my blessing still hasn’t shown.

I find my blood boiling each time they get blessed

Cause what’s happening to mine is not known.

 

This feeling that I get when I see others blessed

Is a feeling that makes my blood stir.

It’s not that I’m mad or wish them any harm

It’s the spirit of the green-eyed monster.

 

Jealousy is another name given to the spirit

Who can’t stand to see anyone else succeed.

Just say  “praise the Lord, I’m really glad for you”

Or that spirit will rise in you and take the lead.

 

People don’t know the pain thoughts cause

They’re sad to see your gains.

What kind of doors have they closed thinking that

While the jealousy inside remains.

 

The green-eye monster is real don’t you see

But you’re the one who controls him from inside,

Just give thanks when anyone is blessed

And you’ll find your jealousy has been laid aside.

It’s Out of My Hands

 

When will you stop trying to be in control?
Even still God understands,
You keep on walking but still lose ground
Before you say, “It’s out of my hands.”

Giving yourself stress and anxiety attacks
Knocking your head up against the wall.
Turn all your problems over to God
And He will take care of them all.

You stay up all night looking for answers
But you never even thought to pray.
While you buzz around like a rat in a maze
God is trying to show you the way.

You’re a nervous wreck and need a change
You’ve wasted more time than you think.
Next thing you know months have gone by
And never thought about the missing link.

Call out to God, the missing link you seek
Cause He knows about all of your plans.
He calmly watches as you bustle about
For you to say, “It’s all in Your hands.”

Thoughts of Doom

Crying myself to sleep each night
There’s too much on my mind.
Tossing and turning my stomachs churning
No answers can I find.

Pain and frustration is off the scale
Don’t think I’m winning this fight.
Scared this feeling might take me out
Will I make it through the night?

Thoughts of doom are filling my head
Fighting to catch my breath.
A hand at my throat that is not seen
Is this what happens near death?

Lord take these thoughts they’re killing me
They’re pulling me apart.
I don’t know if I’m coming or going
Don’t even know where to start.

“Weeping may endure for the night”
But this night just won’t end.
I give thanks in the midst of it all
That Jesus is still my friend.

I See God

 

I see God in the midst of trouble

No matter how bad the need.

I know His love is there for me

When I keep Him in the lead.

 

I see God when I see no way

Though the road seems oh so rough.

I know that He will comfort me

Even though times are tough.

 

I see God when I’m feeling down

When troubles are in full swing.

I know there’s power in His Word

And the joy that it can bring.

 

Many may try to steer you wrong

Their faith is oh so weak.

But I see God while others doubt

His face I constantly seek.

 

My love for God grows more and more

He shows He’s here each day.

I focus on all His promises

For He’s never led me astray.

I’m Gonna Claim My Victory

 

I’ve been working too hard to turn back now

Got my eyes focused on the prize.

Can’t let anybody get in my way

No matter what obstacle or size.

 

I’m gonna’ claim my victory, it’s oh so close

I’ve been waiting for it for so long.

Nothing you can say can hold me back

Cause I know where I belong.

 

Some people hang around like dead weight

Pulling you back the wrong way.

They’re jealous and hate that you have the nerve

To know you’re going to make it one day.

 

“Take what’s yours,” He’s always said

What’s yours is not to be changed.

The jealous can come and try to take what’s yours

But your life has been prearranged.

 

So walk boldly in his Word without a doubt

And one day you’ll truly see.

When you live your life by the Word of God

You’ll soon claim your victory.

Touch Not God’s Anointed

 

Some people love to mess over others

Like they get some kind of joy.

Lying, cheating, gossiping and stealing

Treating others like a mistreated toy.

 

These people just love to cause pain in others

Like they have been appointed.

They’ve obviously have never heard the phrase

Touch not God’s anointed.

 

When you seek to mess over a child of God

You’re really starting to play with fire.

For soon you’ll find yourself reaping God’s wrath

I’m sure that’s not what you desire.

 

Touch not God’s anointed ones

You don’t want to plant that seed.

For God He knows the heart of man

He knows who will succeed.

 

Just trying to tell the ones who don’t

Believe this poem is true.

When you messing with God’s anointed ones

That’s the last thing’s you want to do.

Walk in the Light

 

There is a place in your walk with God

When you feel everything is right.

Don’t be alarmed it’s not a dream

It’s just your walk in the Light.

 

In the Light you feel God’s love and peace

His protection is all around.

A place where violence would have no place

If the world would just come around.

 

To walk in the light is to share His Light

With everyone the best you can.

To walk in the light is to be in the midst

Of God’s Almighty plan.

 

So what if people ridicule you

For trying to live your life right.

They can’t see the goal in thee

To keep your God in sight.

 

“Walk in the Light” is hearing His voice

In every decision that you make.

Stay in the Light, the end is near

Your very soul is at stake.

Dollar Sign Blues

 

I’m feeling real low, I’m feeling down

Don’t want nobody to be around.

At times like these I need the Word

Cause only the negative is being heard.

 

Trying to find a way to get peace of mind

But right now peace is hard to find.

Over and over I keep trying to pray

“Lord, please, Lord!” Show me the way.

 

Exhaustion is high I’m feeling weak

For strength in You is what I seek.

Using all my strength to keep holding on

Cause I feel I’ll slip before too long.

 

Trying to avoid an anxiety attack

Right now its money I surely lack.

You said “ Don’t worry, have no fear.

Just call on Me, you’ll know I’m here.”

 

I’m feeling helpless, feeling blue

Without You, Lord, what will I do?

I can’t explain why I feel this way

But I know the Lord will guide the way.

There’s one thing I can’t stand to hear

From people who handle my check.

Somebody’s got to hit the deck.

 

“I can’t find your paperwork

Or did you sign the form?”

If you don’t find my money right quick

You gonna see how I perform.

 

Why don’t the people who have this job

Have to pay the price?

It’s not my fault the check is late

You should have to pay me twice.

 

How about docking money from their check

The amount they forgot to add to mine.

Messin’ with my money really ain’t funny

When you lay it all on the line.

 

It may seem that I’m joking around

But the problem really does happen a lot.

Only by the grace of Almighty God

Keeps my temperature from reaching hot.

Ain’t That God!

 

Miracles in the world are alive and well

To those who believe in such.

They happen even if you don’t believe

Cause they come directly from His touch.

Or something happens beyond your control.

Or the vision in your mind now unfolds.

 

“Ain’t that God” is what many say

When it’s God without a shadow of a doubt.

Cause you’ll soon find out God is doing His thing

In a world slowly trying to ease Him out.

Is God at work daily in our life.

Knowing that without these unsung works

We’d never make it in this world of strife.

Giving credit where credit is due.

I’m not about to try to live without God

Cause He gave too much for me and you.

You'll Never Steal My Joy

We all know the devil's job
To kill, steal and destroy.
But it doesn't matter what he does to me
Cause he'll NEVER steal my joy.

The joy of the Lord burns deep within
As He guides me through the day.
That joy makes me turn away from sin
When it seems there's no other way.

People can call me all kinds of things
And other tactics they employ.
But they can't seem to understand
They will NEVER steal my joy.

He reached way down and pulled me back
From a world of corruption and doom.
Each day I stop and give him praise
I can feel Him in the room.

So you see I'm hooked and high on His love
No need for you to act coy.
You can beat me ‘til I breathe no more
But you'll NEVER steal my joy.

Praise God Anyhow, Pt.2

 

When you’re feeling like all is lost

And ask, “What do I do now?”

That’s the time you drop on your knees

And praise God anyhow.

 

There’s anointing hidden in your praise

When you see no light ahead.

You could’ve returned to worldly ways

But you chose to praise instead.

 

Your boss told you, “You’re fired!”

You thought you were getting a raise.

But he didn’t know about the job ahead

That came because of your praise.

 

Praise Him in the morning, praise Him at night

Give praise as you drive in your car.

Praise Him when you feel your worse

He’s there right where you are.

 

Bad times can only get you down

As much as you allow.

But when you feel you’ve lost your grip

Praise God anyhow.

As Though They Were

“I call those things that be not
As though they were.” Says the Word.
That means it’s yours before it’s seen
No matter what you’ve heard.

What’s meant for you, you’ll have it.
No devil can take it away.
The only thing that can stop it now
Are the words you speak each day.

Calling those things before you see them
Is faith at it’s very best.
Acting as if they’re already here
Is the way you past that test.

The manifestation is all on you.
Don’t hamper it with your doubt.
Let words of faith flow from your lips
Or you’ll find yourself without.

“Call those things that be not”
As though they’re already yours.
The more you speak those words of faith
More faith in you He pours

Don’t Let the Devil Steal Your Joy

Don’t let the devil steal your joy
That's God’s special gift.
For in the midst of all your trials
That joy gives you a lift.

If the devil can get your joy
He’d get a hold on you.

With no joy to see you through.

Your barrier and your shield.

No matter what the field.

Our life we should enjoy.
But the devil has only one goal in mind
“To steal, kill and destroy.”

Don’t let the devil steal your joy
Don’t let him get you down.

As long as joy’s around.

Don’t take their presence lightly.

Dancing on the Devil

Dance on the devil each time you seek
God's face when you could be down.
Dance on the devil every time you smile
And turn your frown upside down.

Dance on the devil every time you help
Your fellow man in time of need.
Dance on the devil when at your best
And teach others to succeed.

If you give praise in the midst of trials
You're stepping on the devil's toes.
He seeks to dish out nothing but pain
No matter where he goes.

Your joy in the midst of feeling bad
Smacks the devil right in his face.
He can't stand to see you praising God
But here he has no case.

Dance on the devil and burn the tapes
Of the “old man's” ways back then.
The NEW MAN reigns - don't look back
And renew that life of sin
.

And magnify His name.

Is where my spirit should be.

With distractions all around.

Count your blessings in all He’s done

To keep your spirit sound.

You’ll see He always came through.

 

Count your blessings one by one

That God has never let you down

His goal is to set you free.

Walking in the Dark

 

Walking in the dark in the middle of mess

No kind of light in sight.

Keep asking myself, “Where is God?”

Am I not doing something right?

 

It seems lately at every turn

Everything has gone so wrong.

When will this suffering pass from us

I’m asking You, Lord, “How long?”

 

I wish that I could see ahead

The fate God has for me.

But since I can’t I’ll remember that

I have the victory.

 

For then the devil does try his hand

Saying, “Your God isn’t here.”

But Lord, Your word speaks loud and clear

You created no spirit of fear.

 

So it doesn’t really matter how dark it gets

Just keep God in your sight.

No matter how dark your day may seem

Everything’s going to be alright.

Revelations

 

Watching the news each and every day

Kids killing kids having nothing to say.

Drugs have reached an all time high

Have you ever stopped to think

And wonder why?

All the talk without a plan

Racking your brain trying to understand.

Trying to find an easy why out

Trying to dodge the topic I’m talking about.

 

What we’re dealing with here is the sign of the times

The evil is real and will blow your mind.

But the blood of Jesus is close at hand

Waiting to give you a helping hand.

He’ll give you joy and peace of mind

When you think all others left you behind.

I’m not trying to boast, not trying to shout

Trying tell you what Jesus is all about.

Revelations!

 

Corruption works very hard today

Trying to get many to go astray

Shacking with your baby seems quite alright

But it lets the devil in late at night.

Can’t keep trying to justify sin

You find yourself doing it all over again.

Sin keeps trying to take your soul

Trying to keep you from your holy mold.

 

(continued)

So when you think about yourself

How do you live?

How do you love?

How do you give?

Do you think about what other souls to win

Or spend your time dragging them down in sin.

You hear a lot of talk about the final days

You see a lot of changes in many ways.

Our fate is set there’s not much time

God’s given us warnings along the line.

Revelations!

 

Let me tell you right now the only way

Is to come to Jesus before that day.

And we really don’t know when it is foretold

You may be young or you may be old.

But when He comes back you want peace of mind

That you won’t be one of those left behind.

Cause child of God we gonna’ leave this place

Be up in heaven giving praise.

 

So live your life by the Word

Share with others who haven’t heard.

That Jesus is real God’s number One

Let Him in your life cause He’s the One.

He’s come back to judge you and me

You better look to Jesus if you want to be free.

Things ‘bout to get busy in the spiritual realm

And you want to have Jesus at the helm.

Revelation!

Nobody Does It Like Jesus

(Music - Julian Reeves, III / Lyrics- Fitz Houston)

 

I’ve been living my life thinking I’m real tough

Seeking love and respect, but never getting enough.

So I got into drugs, had my game plan down

Got drunk like a skunk and went further on own.

I never thought that I could that I should if I could

Live like a man with a head hard as wood.

The Lord came down put a song in my heart

Gave me hope, a dream to make a brand new start.

Nobody does it like Jesus.

Nobody does it like my Jesus, He’s the only way.

Nobody does it like Jesus.

Nobody does it like my Lord.

 

I spent most of my time hanging with my boys

Checking out the babes looking cute as toys.

Thinkin’ I was grown, thinkin’ I was free

Little did I know they were laughing at me.

Sitting back, talking smack

Living in my dream world, there’s nothing I lack.

Lord came down and said, “Use your head!”

Keep up what you doing pretty soon you’ll be dead.

Nobody does it like Jesus.

Nobody does it like my Jesus, He’s the only way.

Nobody does it like Jesus.

Nobody does it like my Lord.

 

I look back at my past, look back at my life

I think about the pain, the hurt and the strife.

I think about the days that I never was free

Never listened to the voice deep inside of me.

 Love and trust is a must

Give it to the Lord, people, in God we trust.

I don’t even want to think about where I’d be

If Jesus Christ didn’t set me free.

Nobody does it like Jesus.

Nobody does it like my Jesus, He’s the only way.

Nobody does it like Jesus.

Nobody does it like my Lord.

Standing in the Midst of Trouble

 

My head is swirling like a spinning top

No peace I find within.

I think about all I can’t control

My head starts to spin again.

 

You’ve told me, Lord, to call Your name

And You will answer me.

Well Lord, I’m calling with all my heart

Only You can set me free.

 

“Look not at the things that are seen”

For me is the hardest thing to do.

I try to hold on to the things unseen

Cause I put my trust in You.

 

Lord come please and ease my mind

To help me face my fears.

Fears caused by doubt and a restless mind

Ending so many times in tears.

 

They’re tears of hope and the love I feel

As I cling to my faith in You.

For I remember my darkest hours

And the times that You’ve come through.

Never Put Off ‘til Tomorrow

 

Never put off ‘till tomorrow

What you can get done today.

For tomorrow is never promised

And you don’t know the day.

 

Sometimes we’re just too busy

And never take time to care.

Won’t give a smile to your fellow man

Won’t take the time to share.

 

Don’t fill your life with so much stuff

There’s no time left for you.

The time you lose you can’t get back

No matter what you do.

 

Enjoy your life and share with others

You’ll feel your life has worth.

For what is it to not have done

A thing in life since birth.

 

So cherish each day like its your last

Tomorrow is not guaranteed.

For God is with your every step

And knows just what you need.

Dangerous Darts

 

Sometimes we speak without a thought

And care not what we say.

But in the end the words we speak

Is where we are today.

 

Words have power to motivate

Or they can cause much hate.

It’s up to us to control our tongue

Before it is too late.

 

Sometimes words we speak can cause

Much damage beyond repair.

We let them fly without a thought

Like darts shoot through the air.

 

Take the time to choose your words with care

They shape everything you do.

All the way down to the smallest things

Your life’s been shaped by you.

 

With words you’ll reach the highest peak

With God there are no bounds.

Don’t let the words you speak each day

Eventually bring you down.

Who Is This Jesus?

 

Who is this Jesus who walked the earth

Who had the power to heal?

He gave His life for you and me

Yet some think He’s not real.

 

The miracles He performed in front of man

Were beyond all comprehension.

Yet in the midst of all their doubt

He did get their attention.

 

Though many did doubt up to the day

They nailed Him to the cross.

In shock they were when three days passed

And thought the body lost.

 

The news spread fast the body was gone

For some already knew.

He promised in three He’d rise again

But believe did only a few.

 

There is no price we can compare

Jesus, He paved the way.

That we might learn to live like Him

And seek Him every day.

There Is No God?

 

How can you say there is no God

When you look at the heavens above.

You’d rather call God by another name

Which doesn’t include His love.

 

How can you say there is no God

And live life on your own.

To go through life without a guide

And wonder what’s being shown.

 

Your heart it works without your hand

Your lungs breathe on and on.

Your body functions every day

As life goes on and on.

 

Miracles happen all around

In a world with little hope.

A world without God, his mercy and grace

How can you expect to cope?

 

How can you say there is no God

When your life comes to an end?

When comes the judgment for your life

How then will you defend?

All Things Have Become New

 

Behold old things have passed away

Behold all things are new.

That is the key to living a life

For God will see you through.

 

The new man must survive in a world

That the old man learned to reign.

The new man must take on new ways

Or the old will live again.

 

Old tapes must be completely tossed

Not tucked safely away.

Or they’ll come back with a stronger force

And again lead you astray.

 

How can you think you’re in control

If you don’t put it in God’s hands.

You can’t possibly win this by yourself

Call His name!  He understands.

 

You can live a new life without past strands

Trying to pull you back to sin.

But the key is holding to God’s own Word

Where He’ll strengthen you from within.

Will You Choose God?

 

If it came down to your life or death

When asked what would you say?

If asked to you believe in God

Would you brag or shy away?

 

When people try to admire you

For all the Word in you.

Do you step up and minister to them?

It’s the least that you can do.

 

When given the chance, lead the way

For those who don’t know God.

Share with them how good God’s been

Or let them think you’re odd.

 

You should never ever dull God’s light

As it tries to shine through you.

You’ll never know when your shining light

Did indeed help someone through.

 

So don’t be ashamed, it’s time to brag

About God’s goodness in your life.

In the end your light that shone so bright

May have helped another conquer strife.

Your Day Will Come

 

Sitting around wondering why

I seem to be standing still.

All my friends are doing well

It leaves me feeling ill.

 

Why can’t I see success in life

Have I done something wrong?

The Word does say your day will come

But it’s taking oh so long.

 

The truth is that we don’t know when

The where or even how.

Anxiety attacks, depression sets in

Because we want to have it now.

 

God will show us all we’ll have

And what we’ll do one day.

The only thing He doesn’t share

Is what’s along the way.

 

We therefore must hold on to the truth

That God will set us free.

Regardless of how it looks right now

You’ll be who you’re to be.

You and Me Lord

 

There comes a time in within your life

When you feel so all alone.

Your friends they are no where to be found

And your closest friends are gone.

 

Your loved ones they can offer help

But the need is deep inside.

That means your spirit is calling out

From where it does reside.

 

If that’s the case there’s only One

Who knows just how you feel.

Only He can touch you to the core

And know just what to heal.

 

Don’t try to do it all alone

He’s waiting for your call.

He’s looking to see if you will pray

Or try to do it all.

 

It’s You and me Lord, I see that now

It took a while to learn.

It’s better to live with you on high

Than to live in sin and burn.

Death You Have No Sting

 

Some think about it way too much

Sometimes to the very last breath.

It bogs the mind, both young and old

What happens to us after death.

 

The fear grips some ‘til they get sick

The answer they cannot find.

The turmoil and unrest they feel

Starts in their very own mind.

 

Without the Word you stay in fear

You’re constantly seeking peace.

What happens when your breath is gone

Will all your unrest cease?

 

“To be absent in the body is to be with the Lord”

That’s the promise if you live right.

Don’t wait to late to change your ways

You may not live through the night.

 

Death, bring it on, you have no sting

It just means my time has come.

Time to be back with my Lord

Which won’t be witnessed by some.

Lord, You Are My Healer

 

Lord, You are my Healer

You’re my comfort in time of need.

Sometimes my body is racked with pain

Then on You, Lord I feed.

 

Your Word it gives me peace of mind

Your presence conquers fear.

There’s nothing in this world I know

That scares me when You’re near.

 

Lord, You are my Healer

Your touch can heal right now.

It’s not for me to spend my time

Trying to wonder how.

 

I know the key is in my faith

In you I put my trust.

To let your healing do its thing

Believing is a MUST.

 

Lord, You are my Healer

Who always understands.

I have no problem taking my life

And putting it in Your hands.

 Can't Take it With You

 

People are drawn to many things
All fed by the spirit of greed.
But money and riches I'm sorry to say
Is the least thing they will need.

 

For when it's time to give up the ghost
And leave God's wonderful earth.
Tis not your possessions or all you own
That determines what you're worth.

 

For God He judges not your wealth
Your silver or your gold.
What matters to Him is all your deeds
Have you done what you've been told.

 

Has He planted a seed in you to do
An assignment He holds dear?
Do you hesitate or do you move with haste
Whenever you feel Him near.

 

So don't waste your time on worldly things
Like you have so much to do.
Regardless of just how much you have
You still can't take it with you..
