10-1-15 Heart Burn

burning-heart

And they said one to another, Did not our heart burn within us, while he talked with us by the way, and while he opened to us the scriptures?

Luke 24:32 KJV

~~~~~~~~~~~

The fire of the Lord should burn your heart,

And if it doesn’t, you’re not close enough.

You have to be as one, not just take part;

Communion with the Lord is sturdy stuff

Consume the Word, that fiery flame of truth

Until the Holy Spirit sears your soul.

Remember all the passion of your youth?

This burning makes the past a winter stroll.

If you’re afraid the fire has gone out,

Just breathe the name of Jesus and repeat.

You’ll feel the heat begin, there is no doubt;

His Presence is a blaze that won’t deplete.

You know the Savior’s walking next to you;

His love is burning in your heart so true.

4-12-15 True Friend

wealth makes friends

If you would dare to want to know your friends,

Lose everything you own; be destitute.

The clique you used to know will show their ends.

Good luck if you don’t have a parachute.

A poor man’s house is not well visited,

For there is nothing there to want or claim,

And if his house burns down then God forbid

The crowd that knew him rich would douse the flame.

It matters not the things you own or owe;

With Jesus as your Friend you need no more.

With Him it doesn’t matter what you show,

If you have dirt or marble on the floor.

The Savior looks straight to your inner heart.

He knows just who you are but will not part.

~~~~~~~~~~~

Wealth maketh many friends;

but the poor is separated from his neighbour.

Proverbs 19:4 KJV

10-18-14 The Lord’s Prayer 03: Give Us This Day

our daily bread

O God we thank you so much for this day,

To let us rise from bed and praise Your name;

We lean on You for everything, we pray,

For shelter, clothes and food, for warming flame.

We ask the same from You each day, we know,

Tomorrow is not promised us at all;

You are the Source ‘from whom all blessings flow’,

So for today we look to You and call.

O Lord we know we don’t deserve a thing,

For we are hopeless sinners every one,

But please forgive us, on Your grace we cling;

We live for You and Jesus Christ Your Son.

We pray, give us this day our daily bread

And be with us each hour that lies ahead.

~~~~~~~~~~~

Give us this day our daily bread.

Matthew 6:11 KJV
