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!

5-14-15 Precious Indeed

Clay Jar

6 For God, who commanded the light to shine out of darkness, hath shined in our hearts, to give the light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ.

7 But we have this treasure in earthen vessels, that the excellency of the power may be of God, and not of us.

2 Corinthians 4:6-7 KJV

            ~~~~~~~~~~~

How precious is the Word from God to man!

The light that shines from darkness dwells within,

Infused by Christ, the Holy Ghost did fan

Until it raised the dead once lost by sin.

So like a pearl within an oyster shell,

Or diamonds held inside a leather pouch,

This treasure in our earthen vessels dwell,

Too dear for any man to claim and vouch.

We all are blind from birth without the light,

But then the love of Jesus brushes by,

And if we do believe He gives us sight,

His light now in our hearts to then apply.

This light of knowledge cannot be undone:

The glory of the Father’s in the Son

1-10-15 Tittle

tittle

If Jesus said a thing would come to pass

By either the old prophets or himself,

It certainly would happen in its class

And not to be discarded on the shelf.

Then even the small dot above an ‘i’

Could not be cast away before its day,

Because the Lord has purpose to apply

A reason so we know it’s not cliché.

Then every prophecy of Christ came true,

A fact too large to just be swept away,

And even now they still do carry through

So those who know the scriptures know the way.

Be ready, friend, the rest is yet to come,

For Christ will soon return where he left from.

~~~~~~~~~~~

For verily I say unto you, Till heaven and earth pass,

one jot or one tittle shall in no wise pass from the law,

till all be fulfilled.

Matthew 5:18 KJV
