Never Routine

Lord it's so easy to thank You,
when things are going well,
or to humbly call upon You,
when I pass the gates of Hell.
May I never forget,
to send thanks and praise Your way,
as I live in the common,
average day to day.

Unsure

If I neglect,
to stop and pray,
and speak with God,
at the start of day,
and listen to what,
He has to say,
I feel unsafe,
unsure of the way.

All Your Trust

Give the Lord,
all of your trust,
with all your heart,
this you must.
For when you do,
just watch and wait,
and He will set
your paths straight.

I Was The Worst (based on Timothy 13-17)

I was a blasphemer and persecutor,
and insolent opponent,
yet I received mercy and grace,
though I didn't deserve it.
Jesus came into the world,
to save those with sin's curse.
Among the many sinful,
I confess I am the worst.
Yet Christ forgives with perfect patience,
and redeemed me from my treason,
I worship and praise my God,
who has granted me freedom.

Bedtime Prayers

A child will say,
their bedtime prayers,
and speak to God,
of all their cares.
Yet adults can learn,
at this scene so mild,
how to please God with,
the faith of a child.

Windows To The Soul

Eyes are the windows
that open to the soul.
They give insight into brokenness,
or display if one is whole.
It is best to dwell one’s eyes,
upon that which is right.
Then darkness will be lessened,
and the eyes will show forth light.

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.

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.

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.”

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.
