1-14-15 Know It All

sparrows

If God can count the hairs upon your head,

And see the sparrow as it falls to earth,

He also fathoms everything you’ve said,

Without exception knows your thoughts since birth.

There is not anything that God can’t do;

He sees within your heart, your soul, your mind.

He understands your essense through and through

And loves you just the same when cruel or kind.

Don’t be afraid to learn God knows it all;

He cares for you despite your every wart.

If you but listen you can hear His call:

“Come Home,” He says “My Son is your escort.”

Just take His hand, my friend, and you will find

Your thoughts and ways will soon become refined.

~~~~~~~~~~~

I know that thou canst do every thing,

and that no thought can be withholden from thee.

Job 42:2 KJV

12-26-14 Be First to Love

love each other

If God did love us so He sent His Son

To be a sacrifice for all our sins,

Then we should love each other barring none,

And those who understand it best begins,

For we should not just sit around and wait

Until the other fellow loves us first,

For that is just as bad as open hate.

All those who wait to drink will die of thirst.

God loves us so despite our wicked way;

Lord knows that we deserve eternal hell.

Begin to love your enemy today

If you should ever hope to Heaven dwell.

My friends, love one another without pause

By loving one another without cause.

~~~~~~~~~~~

Beloved, if God so loved us,

we ought also to love one another.

1 John 4:11 KJV

10-19-14 The Lord’s Prayer 04: Forgive Us

forgive us

O Father God, forgive us each our sins,

Not that we do deserve it but through grace,

And when in our repentance then begins

With faith to know that Jesus took our place.

We had a debt to You that Christ has paid,

Then understand that we should be like Him

To thus forgive the sins against us made,

No matter how mundane, how much, how grim.

Let us not think when we forgive a debt

That we should be forgiven just the same,

But with no strings attached to then beget,

Forgiving as You do, no more to blame.

O God, forgive us now on bended knee,

As we forgive our brother faithfully.

~~~~~~~~~~~

And forgive us our debts,

as we forgive our debtors.

Matthew 6:12 KJV

10-11-14 Love One Another

love one anotheru

I think I understand what Jesus meant

When He said all the world would know we’re His,

If this love that we share does represent

The love He has for us and who He is.

You are my sister more than blood could share;

You are my brother more than DNA;

This bond we have mere physics can’t compare;

We share the same sweet spirit all the way.

And O this love has power multiplied!

By faith we know there’s nothing we can’t do.

We glorify His name when it’s applied;

By prayer and through God’s will all things are new.

The joy that fills my heart when you’re around

Reflects His love for us, great and profound.

~~~~~~~~~~~

By this shall all men know that ye are my disciples,

if ye have love one to another.

John 13:35 KJV
