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.

11-11-14 Forged

forged

Your life is full of hardship,tears and pain;

You feel as if you’ve poverty of soul.

It seems your every effort’s been in vain,

And you are nothing more than lump of coal.

A diamond starts as coal that’s under stress,

Amid great heat and pressure over time,

And you are far more precious in egress,

Refined by life’s hot furnace whence you climb.

Who wants a soup with vegetables too coarse?

You’ll want them cooked until they taste just right.

Affliction turns the raw to the main course,

Delicious morsel of the truth and light.

God needs a mighty sword annealed and keen,

One forged from hard affliction rough and mean.

~~~~~~~~~~~

Behold, I have refined thee, but not with silver;

I have chosen thee in the furnace of affliction.

Isaiah 48:10 KJV

8-19-14 Commit Your Work

building-plans

No matter what you do from day to day,

The simple tasks that drives toward your goals,

Seek God for help in ev’ry single way

And let Him be the one that’s in control.

Cast all your cares to God for ev’rything,

In sustenence, support, supply and might,

And do your best with all your effort brings,

Then rest assured His will be done forthright.

When you’ve by faith and prayer done all you could,

Release your cares and know that God’s in charge.

He makes all things to work for what is good,

With all the loving grace He will discharge.

            Commit each seed you plant unto the Lord;

            The fruit at journey’s end is your reward.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Commit your work to the LORD,

and your plans will be established.

Proverbs 16:3 ESV
