1-21-15 Our Refuge and Strength

refuge and strength

When trouble comes, and we all know it’s here,

There is no better help than Jesus Christ.

Just call His name, there’s nothing more to fear,

Though Satan seeks to have your angst enticed.

Draw strength from Jesus, He is all you need;

His guidance gets you through the greatest trial.

With calm assurance Christ has you succeed;

The evil of this world cannot beguile.

Discord and discontent are now the norm,

But when you keep the Savior out in front

You’ll find refuge against the daily storm;

He fortifies your soul against affront.

In Jesus you are safe; on Him depend.

In darkest night there is no better friend.

~~~~~~~~~~~

God is our refuge and strength,

a very present help in trouble.

Psalm 46:1 KJV

11-30-14 Thoughts of the Wise

vanity

You find them in the universities,

Or splashed upon the television screen;

They like to show you all their fine degrees

And always come across as so serene.

Some want you to believe that they are wise,

And you might think they have a smarter brain,

But God knows all their theories, flaws and lies;

If they believe they’re wise they’re truly vain.

Intelligentsia think they have smarts,

But they have only mastered arrogance.

The Lord sees through their minds into their hearts;

To Him their pride and egos are affronts.

The wise are only wise when they think not,

For wisdom comes from God – it can’t be taught.

~~~~~~~~~~~

The Lord knoweth the thoughts of the wise,

that they are vain.

1 Corinthians 3:20 KJV
