1-24-15 Take Comfort

tears

A friend of many years has passed away,

Their pain and sorrow will be borne no more,

Yet there goes half your night and half your day;

Anf half your broken heart is on the floor.

Take comfort in the Savior’s arms today

 And lean your tired head against His chest;

He holds you tight and wipes your tears away,

He whispers in your ear and gives you rest.

The world it seems no longer is attuned;

In fact it seems it’s crumbled all apart.

Take comfort in the Lord, He’ll bind your wound;

In time He’ll even heal your broken heart.

Your friend has left this place for glory’s light;

She’s taking comfort in Christ’s love tonight.

~~~~~~~~~~~

He healeth the broken in heart,

and bindeth up their wounds.

Psalm 147:3 KJV

1-23-15 On Righteousness

hunger-and-thirst-for-righteousness

You haven’t wanted righteousness enough

Until you thirst and hunger nigh to death,

Your limbs grown weak, your voice turned lean and rough

And righteousness as precious as your breath.

You argue that the times won’t stand for that;

You’d lose your job and end up on the street.

The cost of righteousness won’t leave you fat;

You won’t know hunger when you always eat.

This world’s a desert void of drink or food,

But there’s a well to slake the weary soul.

You cannot take a sip till you’re subdued

And righteousness becomes your only goal.

For few are chosen although many called;

To gain true righteousness one must have crawled.

~~~~~~~~~~~

Blessed are they which do hunger and thirst

after righteousness:

for they shall be filled.

Matthew 5:6 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
