fetus

Open thy mouth for the dumb in the cause of all such as are appointed to destruction.

Proverbs 31:8 KJV

~~~~~~~~~~~

Much more these days are those who have no voice;

They can’t defend themselves against their doom.

Defenseless, fragile souls without a choice,

A gift of God within their mother’s womb.

It doesn’t matter how they came to be,

These innocent and tender hosts of life.

They can’t be blamed for being; why do we

Think we’re a judge and jury with a knife?

Speak out for those who cannot vocalize!

If you are pregnant, let the baby live!

There is a woman somewhere who would prize

The chance to be a mother, love and give.

Your words can make a difference starting here.

A life depends on you, so persevere!

~~~~~~~~~~~

REMEMBER: You are here because your mother chose life.

12-7-15 Mocked

jmocked

I am as one mocked of his neighbour, who calleth upon God, and he answereth him: the just upright man is laughed to scorn.

Job 12:4 KJV

~~~~~~~~~~~

Beware, the days are here when you are mocked

For standing on your Christian principles,

And even other Christians will concoct

The wildest things about you from their skulls.

Don’t dare defend yourself from such a crowd,

For they are fools, and fools are hard to change.

Just listen to the Lord and don’t be cowed;

The godliest of souls have all been strange.

The sort who love to gossip matter not,

It’s those who love the Lord live in your heart.

It will not matter what the scorners thought

When all is said and done the truth impart.

Be bold, be upright and believe in Christ.

Your faith in Him is worth the sacrifice.

5-11-15 Spread the Word

gospel sharing

And as ye go, preach, saying,

The kingdom of heaven is at hand.

Matthew 10:7 KJV

            ~~~~~~~~~~~

The time has come, the time is here, my friend,

To share the news of Jesus to all men,

And when you hear some mock Him, then defend,

For He will stand for you and them, amen.

The Savior is returning, be of haste,

And spread the Word as if He’s coming now,

Then bring them to the cross where sin was placed,

Where Jesus died for them with humble vow.

Now, be like Christ and preach to all you meet,

Pour out the living water for their soul.

If you bring one to Jesus on the street,

It will be worth the effort as a whole.

Don’t be so shy, recall how you were freed;

How someone let the Spirit take the lead.

10-27-14 Stand Fast

bondage

If you call Christ your Lord you now are free

Of all the damning nature of your sin;

His sacrifice gives you such liberty

A new life in the Spirit does begin.

With freedom you will surely draw such hate,

The world will want you back within its grip;

Stand fast with Christ, don’t take the devil’s bait,

The price of freedom sometimes means the whip.

The yoke of bondage once held you in chains,

But now you’re free beneath His cleansing blood;

Whatever happens now, the growth, the pains,

Are not worth falling back into the mud.

Not only is the Savior now your friend,

He’s just a prayer away and will defend.

~~~~~~~~~~~

Stand fast therefore in the liberty

wherewith Christ hath made us free,

and be not entangled again

with the yoke of bondage.

Galatians 5:1 KJV
