1-4-15 Do Not Fear

strong in the lord

Such evil as the world has never known

Sweeps ‘cross the land like locusts sent from Hell,

But do not fear, for you are not alone;

The Lord is always with you, all is well.

They come with guns to take you in the night,

Or openly with laws corruptly made,

And persecute you with their words and might,

But God is in your heart, be not afraid.

Foul Satan knows his days are at an end;

He rushes round to take what isn’t his.

Be strong and of good courage, do not bend,

For God is here right now, you know He is.

The Lord will not forsake you, sister dear;

O brother, feel His presence, do not fear.

~~~~~~~~~~~

Be strong and of a good courage,

fear not, nor be afraid of them:

for the LORD thy God, he it is that doth go with thee;

he will not fail thee, nor forsake thee.

Deuteronomy 31:6 KJV

11-19-14 BE

universe

Before creation God was One in Three;

Eternal, always Now and always Here.

He opened up His mouth and uttered “BE,”

Establishing at once all you endear.

The heaven and the earth was not, then was;

O friend, can you imagine that decree?

Give praise to God Almighty, the First Cause,

Who set the stars in motion with one “BE!”

In the beginning, ere the world you see,

The Word was God, and God was with the Word,

Forever was and will forever BE

The Author of all things, your life conferred.

From galaxies to e’en the lowly flea,

The universe in place with “LET THERE BE!”

~~~~~~~~~~~

In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth.

Genesis 1:1 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

10-31-14 Not in Temples

not in temples

You cannot place a label on the Lord

That puts Him in a box of any sort,

And those who try must surely be ignored;

A trillion billion words would come up short.

You cannot build a temple or a church,

Then tell the world He dwells within its walls.

A claim like that is vain and will besmirch;

You cannot bind Him to the greatest halls.

The Spirit of our God is everywhere;

He’s closer than your pulse, your breath, your mind.

Just open up your heart and go in prayer;

He’s waiting for you Here, a cinch to find.

God made the world and all the things therein;

The only place He isn’t is your sin.

~~~~~~~~~~~

God that made the world and all things therein,

seeing that he is Lord of heaven and earth,

dwelleth not in temples made with hands

Acts 17:24 KJV

7-23-14 I AM With You

comfort

The trials that you face most ev’ry day,

The hurt, distress and torments in your life;

So now you feel forlorn along the way,

And there will be no end to all this strife.

Be not afraid, for you are not alone;

I’m with you, precious child, forever more.

Have courage, I am here, you’re not unknown.

I have great treasure still for you in store.

I’m with you through your loss, your grief, your pain;

I’m whispering to you ‘This, too, shall pass.’

Be strong, beyond your struggles I remain

To carry you ahead through this impasse.

Do not dismay, for I’m the Lord your God

To walk with you along this path you trod.

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

Be strong and of a good courage;

be not afraid, neither be thou dismayed:

for the LORD thy God is with thee whithersoever thou goest.

Joshua 1:9 KJV
