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.

May I, for You Have


Don’t let sin control my body,
May I only do what’s right.
May I be a tool for You, Lord,
May I do all for Your glory.

You have shown me loving kindness,
For You’ve saved my soul, O Lord.
You have given me Your mercy,
And You have freed me by Your grace,

Sorry

Sorry I've not written anything new;
Seems I've taken a short hiatus.
For the ice was slippery,
and the back sure was "sore"
(Perhaps "BROKE" would say it much better)

I am praying soon I'll be perfectly fit.
But, indeed, it has become easier
to move myself around,
(to do more than just "SIT").
Though still "BROKE", I'd say I'm MUCH BETTER!

The Cost

What is the cost of discipleship
What is the cost of following You?
What is the cost of seeking Your word?
What is the cost of Your call?

You’ve already paid the cost, in full;
All was pre-paid by You, on the cross.
O, Jesus, how could I hesitate,

When You have suffered so much?
