New Start!

Tell me what I long to hear
That Jesus loves me, that He’s near,
Help me fully realize
Just where I stand in His eyes.

Am I good and am I right
How do I look in His sight?
Is there something I should do?
Many things or just a few?

Questions asked, confusion cleared
The answer many need to hear,
Repentance, giving heart to Christ
Changing course and yielding life;
Loving God and others, too
A completely different point of view…

All results of a seeking heart
And the gift of Christ with a brand new start!

If you confess with your mouth, “Jesus is Lord, ” and believe in your heart that God raised Him from the dead, you will be saved. Romans 10:9
God our Savior saved us, not because of righteous things we had done, but because of His mercy. He saved us through the washing of rebirth and renewal by the Holy Spirit. Titus 3:5

Protection!

God is our protection
In any storm in life,
In every way and every day
He’s our Refuge in all strife.

No man can ever hurt us
At risk of life or limb,
God always has us covered
Our safety is in Him.

The threat may overwhelm us
And panic overtake,
But fear can be dismissed
When our lives on Christ we stake!

You’ve heard the statement, “I’ve got your back”. That would be Jesus. He will let no harm befall us!

The eternal God is your refuge, and underneath are the everlasting arms. He will drive out your enemy before you, saying, “Destroy him!” Deuteronomy 33:27
The Lord loves the just and will not forsake His faithful ones. They will be protected forever, but the offspring of the wicked will be cut off. Psalm 37:28

Heavenly Room!

I walked into a crowded room
Not knowing anyone,
Wondering who they were
And where they each were from.

As I heard their voices
And what was being said,
My heart was moved and lifted
Even while I bowed my head.

Conversations all around me
Spoke of joy and peace and love,
And I quickly understood
They spoke of God above.

My comfort level grew
We shared a common bond,
Jesus was among us
And our praise for Him was strong.

I humbly bowed before Him
So thankful for God’s grace,
And for the souls He saved
Who were gathered in this place!

This “room” may be what heaven will be like until we begin to recognize those who’ve gone before! Our praise and hallelujahs will sing out and ring out for our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ!

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