9-17-14 No More Tears

tears

Around the Earth there’s hunger, pain and death;

Maleficence in men now have no bounds.

Disease unchecked steals mind and heart and breath;

Across the land ascends such mournful sounds.

There are no households safe from sorrow’s tears

As fields once full of grain now swell with tombs.

But one day God will come to quell our fears;

A new Jerusalem will vanquish doom.

Stay faithful to the Lord though evil reigns,

For Earth and Heaven soon will be made new.

It may seem hopeless now amid our pains,

But keep the faith until the old is through.

Then God will wipe all tears from weepy eyes;

Eternal life begins when havoc dies.

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

God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes;

and there shall be no more death,

neither sorrow, nor crying,

neither shall there be any more pain

Revelation 21:4 KJV

9-4-14 Compassion

sheep

The world is filled with sorrow, pain and fears,

With grief, despair, alone in darkest night.

Compassion fills the caring soul to tears

And moved in spirit by the suff’ring sight.

O man! Your anguish weighs upon my heart;

If I could bring you all within the fold!

Such evil seeks to tear you all apart

To bind you in its prison uncontrolled.

Too many of my shepherds fall asleep

While wolves of hopelessness devour the young.

I weep for all you lost and helpless sheep

Who perish in the earth, your names unsung.

            Awake! Awake! The flock is scattered wide;

            The hour is drawing near, come to my side!

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

But when he saw the multitudes,

he was moved with compassion on them,

because they fainted, and were scattered abroad,

as sheep having no shepherd.

Matthew 9:36 KJV

8-22-14 Brokenhearted

brokenhearted

This world is filled with sorrow, death and pain,

And it will break your heart ten thousand times.

You suffer grief and tears fall down like rain;

Such agony and torments seem like crimes.

These are the times when Christ is close to you;

He bears such love to heal your broken heart.

He knows exactly what you’re going through;

Unlike the others He will not depart.

The mean and cruel can crush your spirit down;

You feel so poor and mean in your own eyes.

Reach out your weary arms, He’s all around.

The Saviour mends your soul and soothes your cries.

            You’re not alone, just feel His presence near;

            Lean into Jesus, He will calm your fear.

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

The LORD is close to the brokenhearted

and saves those who are crushed in spirit.

Psalm 34:18 NIV

8-16-14 Draw Nigh to God

Facial mask

Now who admits they are a hypocrite?

We think we all have got a goodly heart.

You seem so righteous when in church you sit

Then spit and swear as soon as you depart.

Draw near to God, you fake, now on your knees!

Don’t fool yourself in thinking that you’re not.

If these words pierce your soul like stinging bees,

Draw near to God, you’re worse than you once thought.

Now purify your heart with tears and prayer

And don’t give up till God draws near to you.

You must forget what others think or care,

And let the blood of Christ wash over you.

            If you let slip this warning, hypocrite,

            You’re telling God you’re good when you’re unfit.

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

Draw nigh to God, and he will draw nigh to you.

Cleanse your hands, ye sinners;

and purify your hearts, ye double minded.

James 4:8 KJV
