12-28-15 Lost and Found

lost sheep

12 How think ye? if a man have an hundred sheep, and one of them be gone astray, doth he not leave the ninety and nine, and goeth into the mountains, and seeketh that which is gone astray?

13 And if so be that he find it, verily I say unto you, he rejoiceth more of that sheep, than of the ninety and nine which went not astray.

Matthew 18:12-13 KJV

~~~~~~~~~~~

You wandered lost within the wilderness

Before you even knew that you were lost,

And by the time you came to some distress

In jagged rocks and winter winds that tossed,

The Savior had pursued you all along

With such a love that can’t be full explained.

His outstretched hand was there your whole lifelong;

His mark upon your heart so deep ingrained,

And when you finally fall into His arms,

He’ll put you on His shoulders safe and strong,

To bring you Home where nothing hurts or harms,

Rejoicing all the way with cheer and song.

O can you hear Him calling out your name?

Just put your hand in His. That’s why He came.

REMEMBER: The instant you make Jesus your personal Lord and Savior there is a celebration in Heaven that continues forever.

Worldly Desires

crashing upon the rocks

The glitz that blinds our eyes is gone tonight,

Like flotsam bobbing on a tempest sea,

And precious wealth today will soon be trite;

The thirsty ride the waves in constant spree.

This world is always drifting, always new,

Yet most of us desire what we can’t reach,

And only when we shift our point of view

Do we perceive a lighthouse on the beach.

God’s will is done by those who see the light

Then tell their fellow man the way back home.

Without the beacon in their line of sight

They crash upon the rocks beneath the foam.

The will of God will surely set you free,

Let Jesus be your Guide upon the sea.

And the world passeth away,

and the lust thereof:

but he that doeth the will of God

abideth for ever.
