3-11-15 Acceptable

christ-enablement

So often times you feel it’s not enough,

Your prayers seem weak, your walk is not His walk,

You read the Word until your eyes feel rough,

And when the chance to witness comes you balk.

In times like these just call upon the Lord,

Be honest and admit you’re weak and lame.

Ask Christ for help and you won’t be ignored;

He is your strength, your Savior – praise His name!

Reach deep within, there’s gratitude in store,

Think of the sacrifice He made for you;

Your heart will swell and you will love Him more,

Then when you speak and act it will be true.

O Lord, I pray my words and thoughts are Yours!

There’s nothing you can’t do when Spirit roars.

~~~~~~~~~~~

Let the words of my mouth,

and the meditation of my heart,

be acceptable in thy sight, O LORD,

my strength, and my redeemer.

Psalm 19:14 KJV

2-14-15 Lambs Among Wolves

wolf-among-sheep

Have faith in Christ to move you through your day,

For you will go as lambs amongst the wolves.

You may think you are safe in all your ways,

But suddenly you’re under Satan’s hooves.

Yet as disciples of the living God

We’re sent to find the gems among the rough,

And where we go some angels fear to trod,

But we’ve been sent by Christ, and that’s enough.

Dear kin in Jesus, do not be afraid;

No matter what, you’re safely in His heart.

Don’t worry what to do against the blade;

He died for everyone, so do your part.

The wolves of hate and scorn are all around.

Be like the Lamb of God; let love abound

~~~~~~~~~~~

Behold, I send you forth as lambs among wolves.

Luke 10:3 KJV

11-6-14 Today is Enough

living in the present

Tomorrow is not given any man,

As life itself cannot be guaranteed.

You waste your life if all you do is plan;

You starve today if morrow’s all you feed.

The troubles of this day are just enough

To keep you needing God within the now.

The devil will distract with other stuff,

But don’t let future woes weigh on your brow.

Reach out your arms, the present is right here;

This moment you are surely not alone.

With Jesus at your side there’s naught to fear;

Tomorrow you might be before His throne.

The things still yet to come you shouldn’t fret;

Today is all you need and all you get.

~~~~~~~~~~~

Take therefore no thought for the morrow:

for the morrow shall take thought for the things of itself.

Sufficient unto the day is the evil thereof.

Matthew 6:34 KJV
