Fears

Most fears are like vampires.
While with us, they will suck us dry,
Cause us to perish, take over our lives.
But, when the Son’s light shines on them,
They vanish with the darkness
And we are whole once again.
So, bask in the light of the Son,
Never allowing a fear to approach.
Never succumb to the power of dark,
 Find the light of His way in His word,
And let His light shine through you

A Turned-On Believer


Be a “Turned-On Believer”
Then people might ask,
“What is that scent you are wearing?”
Being “Tuned in” to Jesus
Means people will see
Just what it means to be Christian.

Whether “tuned in” or “turned on”
Others may join you
When they see how much you have changed.
When you’re “easy” on others,
You’re acting like Christ.
How has God’s love seemed to change you?

When your love is apparent
You show you’re chosen
For purpose of service to all.

Armor of God


Part of God’s armor is the sword of the Spirit.
Why leave it at home, to rust in a corner?
Why hold a short dagger (few verses remembered),
When God offers us the sword of His Word,
Constructed to take all evil away?

When willingly taking all help you’re offered,
Each weapon God issued to help you succeed,
Then, when it’s all over, except for the shouting,
You’ll still be standing, praising the Father
For this sword, His Word, protecting from harm.


                              Ephesians 6:10-20

The Mountain


That’s OK, God … I think I know the way.
I see that huge mountain ahead of us.
That path looks real easy… I’ll start out here.
But … where did it go? The path disappeared!
Was there an easier way to the top?
One down below that was hidden from me?
Or … wait … was that mountain even for me?
Stop laughing at me, Lord.  Here is my hand.
Please, will You lead me as I walk by faith?
When eyes remain on You, I’ll not stumble.

Our Future


We who believe in God will ponder,
We will delight in God’s holy word.
No one can ever remove our faith,
Nor can they change our future.

Where knowledge may puff, love will build up.
We’ll be different when we admit sin;
When we resolve to change behaviors.
This, then can change our future.

Wisdom begins with awe in our Lord.
We who believe His ways, and His word
Shout out our “YES” and show Him our trust.
He then will change our future

She


She pulled me in, and turned me around,
Away from the way I once had been:
Enthralled with the world, and soaked in sin.
She brought me to the Church, where I found
Jesus, waiting for my return.

I needed love to merely survive.
But, in order to thrive I need hope!
She, by leading me back to the Lord,
Provided the way for hope to grow;
And I found Jesus Christ—again.
