To Giggle To Laugh

To smile,
to giggle,
or to laugh,
makes a happy life,
that moves so fast.
A heart is full,
and speaks
glad words,
if it possesses,
the joy of the Lord.

A Good Read

You can read the newspaper,
but it may not be the truth.
You can't rely on the tales,
that were told as a youth.
There is a reliable source,
you may of read or have heard.
The font of truth,
is to be found in God's Word.

Overwhelming Peace

The trials of life
can seem overwhelming.
More than one can stand.

Yet there is peace
if one trusts 
their life in God’s hand.

Clouds Of Witnesses

Great clouds of witnesses,
observe us living life.
They know of our struggle,
to do what is right.
When the battles are all over,
and we're released from all harm,
they will be there to greet us,
with love and open arms.

The Great Feast

Counted among
the very least,
God invited me
to His feast.
For few rich and great,
shall cross His door,
He's reserved His best,
for the weak and poor.

I Shall Stand

I shall stand,
though all alone,
with friends not near,
nor sight of home.

Yet I shall not fear,
and yet survive,
because my God,
stands by my side.

A Fence Around Me

The Lord has put a hedge,
a fence around my life.
To protect me from attack,
from the hatred of the light.
If in battle I should fall,
my foe celebrates in vain.
For through the grace of God,
I shall rise again.

No Record

No remembrance or record,
of wrongs we have done.

We are washed and forgiven,
in the love of God’s Son.

The Battle Fierce

The struggle is long,
the battle fierce,
repelling thoughts,
that seek to pierce.

Yet the shield of faith,
repels evil’s darts,
and the love of God,
fills my heart.

Carefree With Thee

I seek not fame,
or to live carefree.
I only desire
to be close to thee.
You are my life,
my everything.
You are God,
my Lord and King.

It Moves Slowly

Life's trials seem to move slowly.
One grows weary as they pass.
But our lives are but moment,
and not long do they last.
The tests that one goes through,
we endure and not succumb.
But they are not worthy,
to be compared to the glory,
that is to come.

The Luxury Of The Poor

The rich man lives in luxury,
all needs met in this life.
The poor man depends on God,
to lead him through the strife.
The end for each is similar,
both arrive at the grave.
But it was easier for the poor,
to find he was saved.

Effective Living

With much enthusiasm
on display,
many loudly
speak of the way.

But more effective
than speaking boldly,
is to live a life
that’s holy.

Illuminated Pathway

You illuminate my path,
until my journey is complete.
“For Your Word,
is a lamp unto my feet.”

Where Your Treasure Is

Where your treasure is,
there will be your heart.
Best to keep you wealth in heaven,
to await you when you part.

So Generous

Oh Lord,
You are so generous,
many gifts You do bestow.
You gladly forgive debts,
despite how much we owe.
We thank you,
and we praise You,
for the love You freely give.
With You we find salvation,
in You we truly live.

The Better Way

Far from the path,
I wandered,
into the briars and the thorns.
Drifting from the direction,
For which I was born.
But then the Lord saved me,
from continuing astray.
He's renewed my life,
and shown me,
His is the better way.

Stream Of Dreams

Like a shadow,
as if a dream,
life passes,
in times stream.

We flow towards,
a world above,
and leave behind,
imprints of love.

Philippians 2:14–15 (Paraphrased And Rhymed)

Do all things,
without murmuring,
or dispute.
Be blameless,
and harmless,
sons of God,
without rebuke,

in the midst of a crooked,
and very,
perverse nation,

among whom you shine,
as lights,
within creation.
