No Second Thoughts

One needs to follow,
without second thoughts.
To seek the Lord,
as one ought.
He is the way ,
the truth and life.
He will lead,
you in His light.
Do not be,
of double mind,
but leave the foolish,
ways behind.

Not So Lofty

Not so lofty
that it can not be obtained.
Not so easy
that one ignores what is gained.
Yet available to all
for those who make the choice.
To seek after God
and make angels rejoice.

Not Unfinished

was left unfinished,
with Christ's death
upon the cross.
His sacrifice restored,
all that men had lost.
The power of death,
was defeated,
not just diminished.
Christ Himself stated,
on the cross,
"It is finished!"

The Facade

Men walk about,
with a facade,
that hides the pain,
and wounds.
Others claim,
to be pious men,
but are as,
whitewashed tombs.
Still others bare,
with divine strength,
the daily
earthy slights,
their secret is,
the joy and faith,
they have found,
in Christ.

Please Realize

Open your heart,
and realize,
that time and life,
is passing by.
Do the activities,
in which you spend,
matter to your soul,
in the end?
Seek God
in all of your ways,
and you'll have peace,
at the end of days.

Beware Of Flattery

Beware of flattery,
one receives
in this world.
By it much deception
in one's life
has been unfurled.
Modesty and honesty,
is where one should start.
For the blessings
of the Lord,
are towards,
a humble heart.

I Will Jump

Across the chasm,
jump I must,
I do in faith,
in Christ I trust.
I will proceed,
ignore the fear,
knowing that,
my God is near.

A New Melody

I will sing,
a new melody,
a song of praise,
of what You've done for me.
You've restored my soul,
and set my spirit free,
now I lift my voice,
to worship thee.

Seeking Muse

One seeks inspiration,
to find their muse,
or proper methods,
to be put to use.
Waste not the time,
seeking thoughts elsewhere,
when answers come,
through simple prayer.

Through A Glass Darkly

For now we see,
as through a darkened glass.
We behold things unclear,
until this life does pass.
In God's kingdom we will see,
and then we'll understand,
how all things worked for good,
according to His plan.

Autonomy Of Help

One desires
to live a life,
that is free.
But life in Christ,
makes one understand,
one must not separate,
from helping man.

Unstoppable Will

The will of God's
What is written,
shall come to pass.
He knows the end,
from the beginning.
The future from the past.
in the turmoil,
the times,
that try men's soul.
God is never unaware,
and He is in,

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.

Not A Joke

Many laugh,
and even joke,
about the words,
that Jesus spoke.
But blessed are those,
with ears to hear,
for them the gift
of life draws near.

You Can Not Cheat

One can not cheat,
the truth of life,
no devious ways,
fulfill the right.
The Words of life,
one should heed,
for God's not mocked,
or deceived.

Not Maybe

In a world where answers are hazy.
Where clear direction
is answered with a "maybe".
The promises of God require no guess,
for he answers His Word,
with a "yes".

A Tourist Passing Through

I pass through this world,
like a tourist.
Knowing this is not,
where I'll find rest.

My peace shall be,
in the age to come,
with God and King,
in His Son.

Through The Struggle

Through the challenge,
and the struggle,
I seek the Lord,
in times of trouble.
He comforts,
and strengthens me,
and gives the grace,
that I need.

I Reach For You

I reach for You,
who is always near,
to comfort me,
and remove my fear.
Yet even before,
my reaching starts,
You're already here,
within my heart.

In The Stillness

In the stillness,
in the silence,
in His rest,
when at peace,
you will hear,
God whisper,
the answers,
that you seek.
