7-21-15 Angels in the Wings

angel01

Are they not all ministering spirits,

sent forth to minister for them who shall be heirs of salvation?

Hebrews 1:14 KJV

~~~~~~~~~~~

Oh child of God, you’ll never be alone,

Though all your friends and family depart.

When dark despair has gripped you to the bone,

There is an angel working on your heart.

He ministers to you when you are down,

Sent forth by God to comfort and restore.

When all the world conspires to make you drown,

An angel’s called to pull you back ashore.

The presence of the Lord is with you now,

And there are angels waiting in the wings.

When grief and pain descends upon your brow,

You’ve got the help you need from where love springs.

Oh child of God, know Jesus lives within,

And angels serve to minister therein.

2-2-15 Foolishness

foolishness

There are some folks you preach the gospel to

That shake their heads and laugh about the cross;

No matter what you say or what you do

They’ll call you such a fool, no more than dross,

And you will have a friend that’s not been saved

Who spends less time with you if you are bold;

He may be more refined and well behaved,

Yet he’ll believe you’re gullible and sold.

Don’t be dismayed, but weep for them instead,

For they know not the joy that could be theirs.

The power that brought Christ back from the dead

Can through their faith make them celestial heirs.

You cannot save a drowning man at sea

If he would rather drown than be pulled free.

~~~~~~~~~~~

For the preaching of the cross

is to them that perish foolishness;

but unto us which are saved

it is the power of God.

1 Corinthians 1:18 KJV
