No Need For Fear!

Why are people fearful of God
Afraid of who He is,
Afraid of what He stands for
Afraid of what they’ll miss?

Afraid to give their heart
To give their life to Him,
To love Him with their being
To repent of all their sin?

I know this to be true
‘Cause I was once afraid,
But then He opened up my eyes
Came in my heart to stay!

No deeper love could be…
His forgiveness of my sin,
Took away my fear
Gave me freedom from within.

No one should wait too long
Or let fear keep them far away,
From God’s love and His forgiveness
…Give Him your heart today!

God says, “In the time of my favor I heard you, and in the day of salvation I helped you.” I tell you, now is the time of God’s favor, now is the day of salvation. ~ 2 Corinthians 6:2

Regrets!

Regrets – I have a few and I believe we all do!

If I could live life over again, thought more about what is sin…
There’d be so much I’d redo – what about you?

Unkind words, haughty looks
Friendships harmed, sometimes forsook!
None can say without a doubt
They know what love is all about!

Unless…

We look to God whose love is real
No enemy can some and steal,
The love that lasts through thick and thin
The love that God gives to all men.
If only we could live this way
We’d have God’s peace come what may!

This season as I note the cross
What it took and God’s own loss…

I long to “give it all to Him”
To turn away from any sin;
That lingers still and holds me back
And leaves me open to stealth attack!

Instead my heart is open to
All it takes to start anew,
Giving back what I’ve received
The love of God to those in need,
His forgiveness, His “second chance”
His merciful and gracious stance;
Regrets forgotten, washed away
As the blood of Christ revealed the way…

To love, forgiveness, healing!

His love for us reveals how we can and should love others – for His glory.

Thank You, Jesusā™„

We love because He first loved us. 1 John 4:19

Some thoughts…

The enemy can see our words on paper, hear them as they are spoken and use them to further his agenda. God can know our thoughts, see our words on paper, hear them as they are spoken and see and hear them in our hearts. He connects with our hearts as only He can because He lives in our hearts. As Christians, when our words glorify Him, it is because He has spoken His Word(s) in to our hearts and they come out in our thoughts, our speech and our desire to praise Him and share His love and mercy. It seems best to only speak/share words that honor our God who loves us so!

May the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart be pleasing in Your sight, O Lord, my Rock and my Redeemer.” Psalm 19:14
