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

10-13-14 Thoughts and Ways

hubble_newold09

The thoughts of God are not the thoughts of men,

For men’s are limited and God’s are limitless.

We think of God the Father now and then,

But God thinks of us constantly to bless.

We think that we can save ourselves with deeds;

God’s thoughts are full of grace and love so pure,

And while we work to earn our common needs,

Our God provides the ways we can endure.

Our ways are crooked, complicated, too;

The ways of God are plain, transparent, manifest.

We move among the shadows to subdue

While God is full of light unchained and blessed.

The thoughts and ways of men lead but to death;

God grants eternal life with Spirit’s breath.

For my thoughts are not your thoughts,

neither are your ways my ways, saith the LORD.

Isaiah 55:8 KJV

9-19-14 Heavens to the Earth

No matter how you hold your head and count

You’ll never understand infinity;

And if you climb the planet’s highest mount

You won’t get closer to divinity.

You can’t imagine God’s so perfect plan;

The human mind can’t comprehend His way.

God’s thoughts are so much wise and higher than

The heavens to the earth from which you pray.

If you assume to know what God can do

You’ll limit your perception of His will.

If you would hope to see God’s point of view

Take Jesus as your Savior ever still.

Have faith in God, He’ll never do you wrong;

He only wants you Home where you belong.

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

For my thoughts are not your thoughts,

neither are your ways my ways, saith the LORD.

For as the heavens are higher than the earth,

so are my ways higher than your ways,

and my thoughts than your thoughts.

Isaiah 55:8-9 KJV
