1-7-16 On Discipline

hand_heart

Let the words of my mouth, and the meditation of my heart, be acceptable in thy sight, O LORD, my strength, and my redeemer.

Psalm 19:14 KJV

~~~~~~~~~~~

With faith disciples of the Lord do live,

Yet recognize responsibilities,

To love their neighbor and to quick forgive,

To represent the Lord by all degrees.

In common conversation speak your mind,

But make sure that your mind’s the mind of Christ.

No foolish, idle, vulgar words in kind;

Just speak the gospel truth and be sufficed.

The mind is like a monkey in a cage;

If it’s not on a leash it’s Satan’s pet.

With scripture and in silent prayer your gauge,

The mind of Christ will be your best asset.

The Lord is your redeemer and your strength;

Your thoughts and words should be in His wavelength.

~~~~~~~~~~~

REMEMBER: Keep your thoughts and words on Jesus; lean on the Holy Spirit for guidance, comfort and understanding.

3-11-15 Acceptable

christ-enablement

So often times you feel it’s not enough,

Your prayers seem weak, your walk is not His walk,

You read the Word until your eyes feel rough,

And when the chance to witness comes you balk.

In times like these just call upon the Lord,

Be honest and admit you’re weak and lame.

Ask Christ for help and you won’t be ignored;

He is your strength, your Savior – praise His name!

Reach deep within, there’s gratitude in store,

Think of the sacrifice He made for you;

Your heart will swell and you will love Him more,

Then when you speak and act it will be true.

O Lord, I pray my words and thoughts are Yours!

There’s nothing you can’t do when Spirit roars.

Let the words of my mouth,

and the meditation of my heart,

be acceptable in thy sight, O LORD,

my strength, and my redeemer.

Psalm 19:14 KJV

10-10-14 Be Not Conformed

renewed

Do not conform to this temporal place,

For it is not your Home, this waiting room.

Instead resist the world, you’re under grace,

And let your soul inhale love’s sweet perfume.

When Jesus is your Saviour He begins

To soon regenerate your earth-bound mind

Into a holy state so far from sin

That it removes the scales from eyes once blind.

And now your mind may prove God’s perfect will,

Acceptable and good in word and deed.

A worthy child that lives for Him until

Your Father calls you on, spotless and freed

Be not attuned to sensual desires;

Let Christ renew your mind with Spirit’s fire.

 ~~~~~

And be not conformed to this world:

but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind,

that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable,

and perfect, will of God.

Romans 12:2 KJV
