1-4-16 Blessed is the Man

beach

Blessed is the man that walketh not in the counsel of the ungodly, nor standeth in the way of sinners, nor sitteth in the seat of the scornful.

Psalm 1:1 KJV

~~~~~~~~~~~

How blessed is the man that walks with God,

Who listens to His counsel night and day,

For those that don’t are living a facade,

Whose best advice no more than a cliché.

How blessed is the man that stands with Christ,

Who keeps the Lord’s commandments out of love,

For those that don’t the world has so enticed,

Whose fate is bound in darkness and thereof.

How blessed is the man that kneels in prayer,

Whose faith is in the Lord so full of grace,

For those that don’t are sitting in despair,

Whose scorn and hate are all they can embrace.

Keep focused on the Word in thought and deed.

He’ll guide you through this place of sin and need.

~~~~~~~~~~~

REMEMBER: When you walk in the Light of Christ you will not stumble.

10-15-15 On Mindedness

mindedness

For to be carnally minded is death; but to be spiritually minded is life and peace.

Romans 8:6 KJV

~~~~~~~~~~~

The carnal mind is focused on the flesh

And all the things of flesh are doomed to die.

It may look good today while it is fresh

But it will sure be rotten by and by.

There’s nothing wrong with passion in its place:

Creative drive is needed to produce,

But passion gone awry is bankrupt grace,

Like tying knots until you’ve got a noose.

If you want peace and everlasting life

The mind of Christ is really what you need.

The Word leads where the love of God is rife;

Such passion of the spirit should you heed.

The carnal mind will take you soon to death.

The mind of Spirit brings eternal breath.

11-4-14 Focus

If you get more excited for a sport,

A TV show, your business or a band,

Then how in all the world can you purport

To say you love the Lord and take that stand?

If you are saved you ought to think that way;

The Christian mind is fixed to serve the Lord.

Don’t let the devil’s playground make you stray.

Remember why you’re here; you won’t get bored.

There’s nothing wrong with having lots of fun,

There’s joy in many things as you well know;

Just don’t forget the shadow’s not the sun.

There’s more important things than this below.

When you get more excited loving God

You won’t go soon astray with a facade

~~~~~~~~~~~

Set your affection on things above,

not on things on the earth.

Colossians 3:2 KJV
