Coming On A cloud!

The clouds fill the sky above
So many and so bright,
I wonder…
Maybe one of them will carry Jesus Christ!

You know He’s coming in a cloud
When He returns to claim,
Those who’ve placed their trust in Him
Those who call upon His name.

Will His return be soon
Or linger for some time?
He’s always waiting patiently
For hearts to change, and minds.

The minutes turn to hours
And the days turn in to years,
But His coming will be swift and sure
Midst joy and midst tears.

Please don’t wait or hesitate
Make up your mind today,
Be prepared, don’t be late
He is the only Way!

Receive Him in your heart
So you’ll be heaven bound,
Repent of sin, enter in
When you hear the trumpet’s sound!

Jesus said, “There will be signs in the sun, moon and stars. On the earth, nations will be in anguish and perplexity at the roaring and tossing of the sea. Men will faint from terror, apprehensive of what is coming on the world, for the heavenly bodies will be shaken. At that time they will see the Son of Man coming in a cloud with power and great glory. When these things begin to take place, stand up and lift up your heads, because your redemption is drawing near.” ~ Luke 21:25-28

Could We, Would We!

Could we give up what is precious to us?
Would we if push comes to shove,
Were we born for a time such as this?
Led by our Father’s love.

Some men are strong and some are so weak
And some just won’t take a stand,
But God gave us freedom and expects us to fight
For our blessed and God-given land.

As trouble is brewing and many feel fear
And the writing is on the wall,
Our nation is crumbling without and within
And continues in its free fall.

God knows His plan and looks after man
To seek Him for answers so wise,
Midst all confusion and mankind’s delusion
It’s crucial we each turn to Christ.

No matter the state our states end up in
Or if they survive overall,
We best never wait until it’s too late
To repent and respond to God’s call.

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

Christmas Time Again!

The snow is softly falling
And it’s Christmas time again,
Time to go back in time
And remember once again…

That Jesus was a baby
Before He became a man,
And He was sought by evil
And chased throughout the land.

He grew and walked with many
Who followed Him each day,
And watched Him as He lived
As He taught them how to pray.

They watched Him walk on water
And turn water into wine,
And saw how He was hated
By those whose hearts were blind.

His birthday every year
Is one many celebrate,
But like when He was young
There are those who’d rather hate…

Hate this love filled Savior
Who is King and ever reigns,
Who died and rose again
To save us…the reason that He came!

His life was all about us
And His death proved it was so,
And now for those who seek Him
Like the Wise Men long ago…

They will find Him when they look
And He is waiting there,
And even those who hate His name
Could find Him if they care.

His heart is always open
And He reaches out His hand,
He didn’t favor just a few
When He died for all of man.

No, He’s there for everyone
It was planned before His birth,
God looked down and sent His gift
For every man on earth.

He left that manger in the stable
And traveled far and wide,
Seeking those to save
Even those who choose to hide.

His love is open and inclusive
And He waits so patiently,
And Christmas time like any time
Is a time to be set free.

Some gifts are conditional
But God’s gift of love is not,
His Son He gave to everyone
The price of sin He bought.

The traditions that we celebrate
Around the Christmas tree,
Begin and end with Jesus
And His love for you and me!

In His quiet presence
As excitement builds and then,
The joy of His coming
Should overwhelm all men.

We sing our songs of joy
About His love that is divine,
And we celebrate and contemplate
Again…it’s Christmas time!

Luke 2:7, 11, 14 – Christ Is Born!

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

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

My Story!

This is my story:

I was lost, but now am found
And now I stand on solid ground.

Only Christ could make me whole
Find me, heal me, take control.

My heart is His, my life is too
I recommend my Lord to you!

This is my story and I’m sticking to it!

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 Saviorwants all men to be saved and to come to a knowledge of the truth. 1 Timothy 2:3-4

My Opinion!

This is my opinion, BUT I’m going to share it anyway: for all the talk and debate re: the problems America has and how to fix them, who knows best, who cares the most, who is right and who is wrong, who is saying what and which makes the most sense, what should be done and how to get on the right track…we aren’t hearing about turning to God so that He can and will fix the problems we all share if we are Americans and desire our nation be under His influence and control. He is the ONLY answer to what ails us and if we attempt to fix America without Him – well, it just isn’t going to happen! We might think we’re strong and can be/get stronger, but we are weak without Him and we can all see that we are growing weaker as a nation. Just as with Israel, He is trying to get our attention, so there is yet hope. Everything man can imagine as a way to solve the country’s “issues” has no bearing if the foundation is not God and His Word. Whether one is a believer or not won’t change who God is and what His plan is – or His judgement(s). Turning to Him as individuals for salvation is crucial, but the nation needs also to turn to Him if we’re to be saved. Think through these words: “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.” (2 Chronicles 7:14) It isn’t too late – yet!

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

Invite Jesus!

Make Jesus your own
Invite Him in to your heart,
Put Him on His throne
And get a brand new start.

Without Him in your heart
Without Him in your life,
Nothing means anything
And nothing is ever right!

He’ll be there forever
And always by your side,
Loving you and keeping you
He’ll always be your guide.

Don’t put off ’til tomorrow
What you must do today,
This is an invitation
Please do it, don’t delay!

Today, if you will hear His voice, Do not harden your hearts.” Hebrews 4:7; Psalm 95:7,8
