8-24-15 Bringing Sight

bringing sight

And Jesus said unto him, Receive thy sight: thy faith hath saved thee.

Luke 18:42 KJV

~~~~~~~~~~~

The blind are all around you, look and see.

They stumble through their life within the dark,

But tell them this, they bellow “Let me be!”

They take offense at every kind remark.

The light of Jesus lives within you now,

So take the bushel off and let it shine!

It radiates to those who will allow

The gospel to be shared, the truth divine.

Someone will stumble forward reaching out

With faith that Christ alone can give them sight.

The quick’ning of the Spirit makes them shout

As they are saved and finally see the light.

The blind are all around you, but be brave

And let your light so shine; its love will save.

7-30-15 Raise the Dead

Sharing

10 And the people asked him, saying, What shall we do then?

11 He answereth and saith unto them, He that hath two coats, let him impart to him that hath none; and he that hath meat, let him do likewise.

Luke 3:10-11 KJV

~~~~~~~~~~~

You are alive within a lifeless land,

The essence of the Lord within your heart.

His love pumps through your veins, it guides your hand,

Compassion overflowing to impart.

With Christ a part of you the way is clear,

To do the will of God and raise the dead,

And this is done with selfless service dear;

To bring them back to life then share your bread.

So give what you can give to those in need;

A pantry sits unused until it’s shared,

Then clothe the poor and to the hungry feed;

It jars some dead to life because you cared.

If you’d be light and salt, then selfless give;

It’s love you’re handing out to help them live.

3-13-15 Matters of the Heart

honesty

If you feel love express it openly,

For it’s a precious gem that must be shared,

But love that’s locked away lives brokenly

Just like a bird that’s caged too long turns scared.

Be honest with your feelings all the time

And you won’t have to worry what to say;

The matters of the heart are so sublime,

One little lie in love leads truth astray.

The love you have for God and Christ and man

Should be more than the words you can express.

Beyond the tongue are deeds and truth that can

Reveal more than a million words profess.

Hypocrisy in love destroys the soul;

If this is you, pray Jesus make you whole.

~~~~~~~~~~~

Let love be without dissimulation.

Romans 12:9 KJV
