10-23-15 Your Days Are Numbered

numbered

So teach us to number our days, that we may apply our hearts unto wisdom.

Psalm 90:12 KJV

~~~~~~~~~~~

The only day you know you have is here,

So set about as if it is your last.

Tomorrow is not promised to appear;

The best day of your life is fading fast.

You know this to be true but still you yawn;

How many days have you survived thus far?

A wise man counts each day as his last dawn

And counts the Lord his only constant star.

The place and time to live is here and now.

Do everything with love while you still can.

The sun tomorrow God may not allow,

So treat today the end of your lifespan.

Get up this instant! Get upon your feet!

Give all that you can give to all you meet!

8-24-15 Bringing Sight

bringing sight

And Jesus said unto him, Receive thy sight: thy faith hath saved thee.

Luke 18:42 KJV

~~~~~~~~~~~

The blind are all around you, look and see.

They stumble through their life within the dark,

But tell them this, they bellow “Let me be!”

They take offense at every kind remark.

The light of Jesus lives within you now,

So take the bushel off and let it shine!

It radiates to those who will allow

The gospel to be shared, the truth divine.

Someone will stumble forward reaching out

With faith that Christ alone can give them sight.

The quick’ning of the Spirit makes them shout

As they are saved and finally see the light.

The blind are all around you, but be brave

And let your light so shine; its love will save.

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
