Don’t Wait Or Hesitate!

Lord, I am shocked and numb beyond words
Reeling and feeling like my prayers were unheard,
Yet God I know and that without doubt
You are the One who has it all figured out.

Your will be done, I want it to be
Your plan is perfect – with it I agree,
You set the sun and the moon in to space
And put every star each in its place.

You know the time and the date You’ll return
The fate of mankind is Your greatest concern,
You are the King, and rule over all
You reign from on high, and conquered man’s fall.

You redeemed us from sin and the universe waits
For the glorious appearing of our Savior so great,
Our hope springs eternal, on Your Word we do stand
Our fears and our future rest in Your hand.

Jesus, the name we praise and adore
The One the whole world is still waiting for,
Will return in His glory for creation to see
Every tongue will confess this Savior is He!

He is victorious and now so are we
Evil is vanquished for eternity,
So looking ahead and seeing beyond
I say, “Come, Lord Jesus” – to You I belong!

 

Today is the day of salvation – don’t wait or hesitate! Receive Christ as Your Savior. Don’t be left behind! “Behold, now is the accepted time; behold, now IS the day of salvation.” 2 Corinthians 6:2b

Denouncing Fear!

Lord, we’re in a time and place
Where we need to see You, face to face
To draw closer to Your touch
To look to You for oh so much!

Wisdom – allowing You to teach
To learn what before stayed out of reach,
With blinded eyes and hearts grown cold
Open us now, Lord, help us be bold.

To know Your will, to know You well
Sharing with others we can tell,
Of Your love and mercy, that You’re fair and just
And in only You can we put our trust.

Lord, before it becomes too late
And we know neither the time or date,
Pour out Your Spirit on those You can use
We must turn to You – there is much to lose…

No one can ever say about You
“God is not real. God is not true.”
But there are many who believe this to be
We see it each day – they just won’t believe!

You look at the heart and know in the end
The one who is seeking and who will repent,
The very things You require of man
To receive Christ – Your salvation plan.

The enemy may be dancing in glee
As he wins some battles but not victory,
He sets the trap and watches man fall
But You pick up those who answer Your call.

Might we stand by Your side while on bended knee
Denouncing the fear as our hope is in thee,
Help us be strong in the storm on its way
Christ will return – maybe today?

The Lord is faithful, and He will strengthen and protect you from the evil one. 2 Thessalonians 3:3

Not Forsaken!

A heart filled with love for the Savior
Has hope that will never leave,
It beats with a strong devotion
With each breath that it takes to breathe.

Faith overcomes the deeper it grows
In the One who calms all our fears,
With an open heart on bended knee
The yielded prayer He hears.

God won’t deny or forget about us
He’s beside us wherever we go,
Seek His will, study His Word
It’s there and assures it is so.

Draw close to Him who is close at hand
He is LIGHT in the dark and the drear,
He’ll never forsake those who are seeking
He’s the calm in the storm that we fear.

God has said, “Never will I leave you; never will I forsake you.” Hebrews 13:5; The Lord replied, “My presence will go with you, and I will give you rest.” Exodus 33:14

Bring me back!

Forgive me, Lord, for walking away
For forgetting to listen to what You have to say,
For eyes that are blind
And ears that won’t hear
For a heart that is cold
To what You hold dear.

Draw me back
To where I belong,
To thinking what’s right
Instead of what’s wrong.

Remind me, Lord, like in days gone by
That You always hear my heart’s plaintive cry,
It is You I need and I want to be
Where I find joy and hope and Your peace.

Oh, Lord, draw me home
Might I fall to my knees,
Might my life bring You glory
I’m asking You, please!

It is the Lord Your God you must follow, and Him you must revere. Keep His commands and obey Him; serve Him and hold fast to Him. Deuteronomy 13:4

Humble yourselves before the Lord, and He will lift you up. James 4:10

Forgetting what is behind and straining toward what is ahead, I press on toward the goal to win the prize for which God has called me heavenward in Christ Jesus. Philippians 3:13-14

 

because He’s Christ!

Lord, I ask of You today
As I ponder and I pray,
To open hearts and focus eyes
On Jesus Christ who is the prize.

Of all the things we’d ever want
(Things, some may wish to flaunt),
Would be relationship with Him
And to declare, “I’m Born Again”.

Nothing greater could ever be
Worthy of a prayerful plea,
Draw all men to the One who saves
The One whose life He freely gave.

Reach down and grasp drowning man
Help him see Your eternal plan,
Help him know You’ll come again
And the storms of life he’s swimming in;
Won’t always last and You’ll be there
To always hear and answer prayer,
To pick him up and carry on
When life is tough and troubles long.

Nothing else is oh so sweet
Than when the Savior one may meet,
Comes in and settles in a life
And is the Lord – because He’s Christ!

 

God our Savior… wants all men to be saved and to come to a knowledge of the truth. 1 Timothy 2:3-4

“Please”…..

Change comes and we accept, because we must, though with regret.
And things happen, life is such we must adapt to stay in touch.
But yearn we do for days gone by, when life seemed simple for you and I;
Most everything was black and white, there was wrong and there was right.
There was evil and there was good, people lived the way they should.

Character you’d emulate, bad behavior you knew to hate.
Respect and honor were taught to all, with many heroes and many would fall.
Freedom meant love and God and home, there was pride when our flag was flown.
Anti Americans were very few, there’d have been shock if any we knew.
It was believed our nation was blessed, that no matter what she’d stand the test.
With God to guide and carry us through, there weren’t any limits to what we could do!

Things are so different in this different day, hearts are fearful and filled with dismay.
God is still with us but are we with Him? Have we gone far astray, is the future quite dim?
All of the virtues we once stood upon, God’s Word and His truth are now said to be wrong.
What used to matter to man and to God, is ignored and abused, distorted and flawed.
What will it take to get America back? To who we once were and on the right track?
*Repentance of sin – that’s what God says, turning from evil and our wicked ways.
He holds the future and us in His hand, will He save America if we don’t take a stand?
Praying and standing for God we must do, there’s no wiggle room for me and for you.
Yielding to Him and down on our knees, giving ourselves and begging Him “Please”…..
“Lord, save our nation if it be thy will. You are the answer, we’re believing it still.”!!

*2 Chronicles 7:14 ~ “If my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then will I hear from heaven and will forgive their sin and will heal their land,” says the Lord.

 

 

Book Of Life!

The greatest book ever written
Is the Bible, God’s Holy Word,
But there is another book of His
About it, you have heard.

It is the Book Of Life
A list of who is who,
And if we know the Savior
It has our names there – me and you.

Those who know the Lamb
He is Jesus, He is King,
And contained within this book
Are those who gladly praise His Name.

He is lifted high
So others take a look,
At this Savior of all mankind
Who owns this precious book.

If we can see the list
And on it find our name,
Our joy is complete
And we’ll never be the same.

The wonder of it all
Is to know that we belong,
That God has placed us in His book
When our souls for Christ He won.

And I saw the dead, small and great, standing before God, and books were opened. And another book was opened, which is the Book of Life. And the dead were judged according to their works, by the things which were written in the book. Revelation 20:12
Behold, I give you the authority to trample on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy, and nothing by any means shall hurt you. Nevertheless, do not rejoice in this, that the spirits are subject to you, but rather rejoice because your names are written in heaven.” Luke 10:19 & 20

“Good” Hearts!

A good heart – an achievement to be sure.
One that speaks of love and care and one we say is pure.

Are there really good hearts or is the description wrongly placed?
What is in a heart shows in a person’s eyes and face.

We can strive to have a good heart and wish that it were so.
But Christ alone and only He, can change a heart where love will grow.

Examining and analyzing our own heart tells us true,
Our words speak what is held within; it’s the same for me and you.

All of us can ask our Lord to clean our heart from sin.
That can happen only when Jesus lives within.

It is a constant chore that He will gladly do,
But we must yield our hearts so He can make them fresh and new!

Every day, throughout each day (and night), this is important and necessary according to Jesus in God’s Word…Matthew 15:18 & 19 ~ “But those things which proceed out of the mouth come from the heart, and they defile a man. For out of the heart proceed evil thoughts….”

 

My Dwelling Place

I’m looking to the heavens
To where my Father lives,
To where He has a place for me
Because His love forgives.

The TRUTH is up above me
But also here below,
I know I can believe Him
It’s just something I can know.

I think of where I dwell
Here on earth for just a while,
And then I think of heaven….
My eternal home there makes me smile.

Our citizenship is in heaven. And we eagerly await a Savior from there, the Lord Jesus Christ. Philippians 3:20

“Follow Me”

Bring me to the place, Lord
Where I will follow You,
No matter what the cost
Or what I must go through.

Take this longing heart
That wants to be with You,
That wants my full allegiance
To be focused just on You.

I know that some day soon
You will call out to Your own,
You will escort all of Yours
To our great eternal home.

But until that day arrives
And on earth I worship Thee,
My heart will answer “YES”
When You say “Please follow me.”
