God – He Is In Control!

God is in control
And lest we ever doubt it,
He lets us know in His Word
And tells us all about it.
He tells us that “I am”
He is creator over all,
He made a way because He can
To save us from our fall.
Man could never save himself
From sin that entered in,
So God sent Christ to die for us
And then He rose again.
He lives in us and goes with us
If we invite Him to,
He loves us so and helps us grow
He’s there for me and you.

I heard what sounded like a
great multitude, like the roar of
rushing waters and like loud
peals of thunder, shouting:
For our Lord God Almighty reigns.”
Revelation 19:6

His Plan Proceeds!

Whatever place God has you in
Be thankful to Him, please thank Him!
When you prayed and first believed
Your answered prayers were gifts received.
Now doubts abound and fears close in
But don’t forget to still trust Him,
See the sunshine, not the rain
When circumstances cause you pain.
His plan proceeds, look to your heart
Yield all to Him for a fresh, new start.

May our Lord Jesus Christ Himself and God
our Father, who loved us and by His grace
gave us eternal encouragement and good hope,
encourage your hearts and strengthen you in
every good deed and word. 2 Thessalonians 2:16-17

Those who plan what is good find love and
faithfulness. Proverbs 14:22

The cheerful heart has a continual feast.
Proverbs 15:15

The Word!

The Word of God is sharp
And gets to the heart of the matter,
We’re taught the important things
And not just mindless chatter.
The message God conveys
Is one not to dismiss,
It’s meant to ground us in His truth
We can depend on this!
Open the Word of God
Read with an open mind,
Check out the truth of Him
And leave deception behind.
All that we should know
Will deeply penetrate,
And sink into our heart
Why would we want to wait?


For the Word of God is living
and powerful, and sharper than
any two-edged sword, piercing
even to the division of soul and
spirit, and of joints and marrow,
and is a discerner of the thoughts
and intents of the heart. Hebrews 4:12


What happens to hope
When things all go wrong,
When a heart is bereft
And just can’t sing a song?
Can’t give every burden
So hard to bear,
To God who’s the Father
And the One to most care?
Just pray and ask Jesus
To draw you to Him,
He’ll stretch out His arms
And hold you within.

“I know the plans I have for
you,” declares the Lord, “plans
to prosper you and not to
harm you, plans to give you
hope and a future.”
Jeremiah 29:11

May the God of hope fill you
with all joy and peace as you
trust in Him, so that you may
overflow with hope by the
power of the Holy Spirit.
Romans 15:13
