3-30-15 Neither Fail Nor Forsake

alone

I AM your God, and I will always BE,

I do not sleep, I do not slumber, too.

I watch a star evolve, I watch a flea,

I watch the universe; I’m watching you.

I will not fail you; you can count on Me.

I always keep the promises I make.

I know that life has its adversity;

I won’t abandon you when love’s at stake.

I did not leave when Adam fell from grace,

I never did forsake the prophets bold.

I was with Jesus til sin took His place;

I was with Him when death failed to take hold.

Relax, My child, You’ll never be alone

I AM your God, and you are all My own.

~~~~~~~~~~~

I will not fail thee, nor forsake thee.

Joshua 1:5 KJV

3-29-15 He Knew

cross-of-christ

Before the earth and sun and stars He was;

Created everything with love and grace;

Before the first was written knew the laws;

Ere Adam breathed He knew the human race.

He also knew the sin that would abound

To keep the soul of man apart from God;

He knew He had to come to earth uncrowned,

To be a man not knowing sin or fraud.

He had to live a life unblemished so,

The perfect sacrifice for sin undone.

He knew that on the cross His blood would flow

And when He died salvation thus begun.

This man we know as Jesus knew that He

Would give us hope through Him to set us free.

~~~~~~~~~~~

And ye know that he was manifested to take away our sins;

and in him is no sin.

1 John 3:5 KJV

3-24-15 One From Two

manandwoman

Both man and woman did the Lord create

To compliment each other perfectly,

So when it comes for one to take a mate

Look on the other to make harmony.

When God made Eve from Adam it was good,

For man was not designed to be alone.

God made her from his side it’s understood

So he would have a helper, not to own.

Then mankind can’t survive with man on man,

And woman can’t conceive from woman, too.

The human race needs both, for that’s God’s plan;

Together to become as one from two.

As she is made for him and he for her,

The union of them both new life occurs.

~~~~~~~~~~~

Nevertheless neither is the man without the woman,

neither the woman without the man, in the Lord.

1 Corinthians 11:11 KJV

3-9-15 Love Your Wife

marriage love

The love a husband has for his own wife

Is true and tender, gentle, warm and wide,

Protecting her from harm with his own life,

Attending to her needs as can provide.

This love is as the Savior loved the church,

Unselfish, sacrificial, just and pure,

And if she lose her way then lead the search,

Or if she comes down ill then find the cure.

A husband loves his wife with all he has,

And as the Lord loves him, he has it all.

Forsaking everything exactly as

The Lord forsook His blood for Adam’s fall.

O husbands! Love your wives as Christ loves you,

Becoming then in essence one from two.

~~~~~~~~~~~

Husbands, love your wives,

even as Christ also loved the church,

and gave himself for it

Ephesians 5:25 KJV

2-18-15 The Word

cosmos

Before the world, our Savior was the Word;

Both God and with God, Logos was and is,

Who with His voice the new born heavens stirred,

And all creation rightfully is His.

We cannot scarce imagine this at all,

But God Himself came down and walked the earth,

To save us from the curse of Adam’s fall;

The Word as flesh was perfect from His birth.

How wonderful that God did love us SO

That He BE-came a man, this Word divine!

He sacrificed Himself so all would know

Just how to be the branch with He the vine.

Now, in the first beginning was the Word.

With God and God Himself, the Word is heard.

~~~~~~~~~~~

In the beginning was the Word,

and the Word was with God,

and the Word was God.

John 1:1 KJV

11-21-14 Savior

shepherd

The Son of man did come to seek and save

Those lost from Adam’s sin so long ago,

For God so loved the world His Son He gave

To sacrifice his life for all below.

While here within the flesh the Savior taught

Salvation’s way through faith in who he is,

And made disciples which he fully wrought

To tread the earth and bring back what was his.

Hear Jesus call your name, yes, even now!

He calls across the gulf of sin and death.

Just take his hand, surrender and allow

The Son of God to give eternal breath.

He sought you out because he loves you so

He’s here to take you home; come on, let’s go!

~~~~~~~~~~~

For the Son of man is come to seek

and to save that which was lost.

Luke 19:10 KJV

9-28-14 Under Grace

shackles_broken1

Now that you’ve come from that rugged cross

And left your sins up there on Calvary,

Now that the sting of death is at a loss,

And Jesus is the only face you see,

No longer are you subject to the law

That governed over Adam until now;

No longer sin has trapped you in it’s maw,

No longer made you slave behind the plow.

You are now under grace that won’t accuse,

Regenerating Christ inside of you;

If you should sin it’s only if you choose,

For Satan has no power to pursue.

You’ve come down off the cross under God’s grace;

Christ died for you that you might win the race.

 ~~~~~

For sin shall not have dominion over you:

for ye are not under the law, but under grace.

Romans 6:14 KJV
