Traveling!

While traveling with a purpose
I couldn’t help but see,
The many roads and highways
Meandering through fields and trees.

They all are going somewhere
Each will find its end,
Each is named upon a map
And may take one to a friend.

Depending upon the tools we use
We can usually find our way,
And if we’re lost and off the track
We’ll find another way.

Not so with life and God’s plan for man
There is only one route to take,
The direction’s clear and oh, so near
The choice is ours to make.

He’ll lead and He will guide
And push us to move along,
He’ll correct and point us home
When the turns we take are wrong.

The highway to heaven is narrow
But Jesus will take us there,
The road with the end that matters
Will lead us to God…through a prayer*!

*THE prayer…Thank You, God, for Jesus death for me on the cross. Forgive me of my sin. Help me turn to You and live for You. In Jesus Name, Amen.

Jesus said, “I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.” John 14:6

Keeping It Simple!

We needn’t be elaborate
In what we do for Him,
He simply wants our hearts
From beginning to the end.

He knows when we are acting
And if the mask is old and tight,
He simply wants our love
And that our hearts with Him be right.

They say the simple things in life
Are the best that there could be,
God wants us to be simple
In His reality.

Giving what we have to Him
Who simply gave His all,
Being always ready
Every time we hear His call;

To simply serve Him with our hearts
To share the simple and profound,
That He simply saved us to be His
And to simply spread His love around!

There is nothing simple about God or His love or His plan to set men free through the gift of Jesus Christ, but we are simply called to respond to His invitation and to simply say “Yes”. It is as simple as that! This says it all:

“For God so loved the world that He gave His only Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have eternal life.” John 3:16

“And now, Israel, what does the Lord require of you, but to fear the Lord your God, to walk in all His ways, to love Him, to serve the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul…” Deuteronomy 10:12

I Wonder Why…

I wonder why eyes don’t see
Ears don’t hear…
It confuses me!

I look around at what is real
It is no joke
Just what’s the deal?

People want to believe a lie
They turn away
And they deny…

That God is real, He really is
He makes things plain
He can settle this!

A world gone mad and all because
He’s ignored, replaced
With manmade laws.

If only man would realize
God loves us so
And has devised…

A plan so great to clean us up
To save us, bless us
With undying love…

To give a chance, more than one
To repent, restore
All though His Son.

But eyes are blind, choose not to see
As God still waits
To set men free!

The world’s in trouble and it is clear
God is watching
He’s very near!

“Come, Lord Jesus”

He who testifies to these things says, “Surely I am coming soon.” Amen. Come, Lord Jesus! – Revelation 22:20
