I SEE JESUS EVERYWHERE . . . Mar.2001 Message
On each scarlet rose, I see so pure,
The crimson Blood of my dear Saviour.
When I see a flower, I see His Face,
Filled with such beauty, love, and grace!
In the sun, I see His ne’er ending Light,
Stars remind me of His eyes, so bright.
Rain makes me think of the tears He shed,
For you and me; out of love, not dread.
When I see a great oak tree, so tall,
I feel His strength, that won’t let me fall.
Too, when I see a tree, I’m at a loss,
For in every tree, I see His Cross.
Thunder makes me think of His voice so strong,
That He’ll use in judgment of all wrong.
With His breath He does make the sea obey,
A raging storm; or calmed, and stayed.
When I see a vine, twisted with thorns,
I think of the ‘crown’ He had adorned.
He died on that Cross to set us free,
But nearly all people from Him flee.
I see Him always; He’s all around,
When I look at the sky, or on the ground.
The gentle breeze makes me know He’s near,
He’s always close, I’ve nothing to fear.

The above is My husband's favorite poem.
I SEEK YOU
For wondrous hope Lord, I seek Your love,
For You promis’d, a mansion above.
A grand inheritance, reserv’d for me,
That won’t fade away, thru’ eternity.
For true contentment, I seek Your peace,
Not like the world’s peace, Yours shall ne’er cease.
Deep down inside, no one can understand,
This feeling can come, only from Your Hand.
When sins are a load, I seek Your mercy,
You pull me from the sea, of iniquity.
Forgiveness is mine, when I go in pray’r,
Each time I seek You Lord, You prove You care.
When life’s burdens, seem to have no end,
It’s then that I seek You, as my Friend.
Always sufficient, is Your amazing grace,
You are always there, as I run my race.
When joy eludes, it is You that I seek,
You always strengthen me, when I am weak.
You cast away all my doubt and worry,
Confirming that I have, life eternally.
It is You that I seek, when my faith is low,
Faith increases, a blessing You bestow.
Mountains and valleys, You help me thru’,
What an asset it is, to have You.
I seek Your light, as life’s path I walk,
Especially when the old devil stalks.
I thank You Lord, for all You do for me,
And I thank You for life eternally.

I SHOULD BE AFRAID
I should most certainly be afraid,
To solve a problem, without Your aid!
If I attempt, I will surely fail,
My sheer knowledge is to no avail.
My many enemies, I should fear,
If Your Holy Presence is not near!
If I should take a stand, on my own,
My pitiful weakness, is clearly shown!
I should surely fear, if I don’t love,
In this sinful world of push and shove.
If I live with a heart full of hate,
In God’s eyes, I’m in a fearful state.
I should certainly be afraid to die,
If on the Saviour, I do not rely!
If in glorious Heav’n, I want to dwell,
Precious Jesus, must keep me from Hell!
There’s much to fear as I walk this land,
So I must stay close, and hold His Hand!
With Christ on my side, I’ve nought to fear,
I can depend on Him, for He is near!
Jesus can take all your fears away,
Turn to Him now, and trust Him today.
With Him, we need never be afraid,
He’ll love, comfort, guide; and grant us aid!

Dear Lord, I submit my all to You,
Lord, I humbly ask that You rescue.
One hundred percent, to You I submit,
Fill to o’er flowing, with Your Spirit.
I want not evil, my mind to control,
That would be disaster, to my soul.
I humbly to You, submit my all,
O Lord, hear me, as on You I call.
If I submit to You, Satan will flee,
This is a Promise, You give to me.
I claim this Promise this v’ry day,
Lord I need You, each step of the way.
From a bad attitude, run, I must,
For You want me to be right and just.
Lord, I submit to You, willingly,
Claiming the Promise, that Satan will flee.
To You I submit, and Satan I resist,
I need Your pow’r, as long as I exist.
Lord I submit, claiming your Promise,
Only You alone, can answer and bless.

I Thank You
Help guide me, on roads where I should go,
Help me stay on, the strait and narrow.
All too oft, Satan tempts me to stray,
I need Your help Lord, to get thru’ the day.
I must come to You, each day in pray’r,
You answer in love, because You care.
No matter my trouble, or my woe,
You’re always with me, where e’er I go.
When I consider, how privileg’d am I,
I call You “Father” O God, Most High!
You are Creator, of every thing,
Yet You call me Your child, and give great blessings!
As I come before, Your awesome Throne,
I’m grateful my sins, You did atone!
Because of Jesus, I can be bold,
And Your blessings of love, I can closely hold.
Keep me dear Lord, on roads that will please You,
Let me in my mind, keep Heaven in view.
Keep me safe, from Satan’s deceiving ways,
Lord I ask Your help, as to You I pray.
I thank You Lord, for all that You do for me,
You graciously give, life eternally.
I thank You, that I am a child of the King,
I thank You, for all Your wondrous blessings.

I Thank You, LORD
I thank You LORD Jesus, for What You are,
Our redeeming Saviour, from Heav’n afar.
You came e’vn though You knew, what You must do,
I cannot comprehend, such love so true!
For Who You are LORD Jesus, I thank You,
One with the Father, Almighty God so true.
You are the only Way, to Heav’s above,
I thank You and Your Father, for Your love!
I thank You LORD, for what you gave so free,
Your very own life, for the likes of me.
Life eternal, is what to me You give,
That with You in Heav’n, someday I will live!
I thank You LORD, for what You did not do,
You did not call angels, to rescue You.
Scriptures must be fulfilled, thus it must be,
And LORD, You fulfilled it, so perfectly!
I thank You Jesus, for what You did do,
Knowing full well, what was expected of You.
You knew You’d suffer, before, and at the cross,
Yet You came for me, ne’er thinking it loss.
I thank You Saviour, for redeeming me,
And giving me a home, in eternity.
A home reserved, that will not fade away,
And will be there, when I get there one day!

John 10:30 I and my Father are one. (KJV)
John 14:2-3 In my Father's house are many mansions: if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you. 3 And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and receive you unto myself; that where I am, there ye may be also. (KJV)
John 14:6 Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me. (KJV)
Matthew 26:53-54 Thinkest thou that I cannot now pray to my Father, and he shall presently give me more than twelve legions of angels? 54 But how then shall the scriptures be fulfilled, that thus it must be? (KJV)
1 Peter 1:4 To an inheritance incorruptible, and undefiled, and that fadeth not away, reserved in heaven for you, (KJV) Also see: Jn.3:15-18, 36; Acts 4:12; 1 Jn.5:10-13; Rev.20:15.
“I thirst” our precious Lord did say,
As He hung on the cross, that dark, dreadful day.
His thirst, made our thirst, be satisfied,
That day on the cross, that He was crucified.
Pure Living Water, from the Throne of God flows,
To all who believe, a blessing bestowed.
As an oasis in a desert so dry,
Our thirst shall be filled, Jesus won’t deny.
Christ’s water is an everlasting spring,
Our thirst shall be quenched, by Water He brings.
The Well of Salvation refreshes our soul,
Trusting only in Christ, should be our goal.
The Water of Christ gives life eternally,
A blessing from God, and a mystery.
A fountain from the House of the Lord will flow,
In that day there shall be no pain or sorrow.
The Lamb in the midst of the throne shall feed us,
Leading us to Living Waters so precious.
Whosoever will may take the Water of Life freely.
And live in Heaven, for eternity.

(John 4:14; 7:38-39; Isaiah 12:3; Joel 3:18; Rev. 7:17; 22:17)
Once I thought I knew, all about God,
I was carefree, as the broad road I trod.
Satan deceived me, I thought all was well,
And all the while, I was speeding to Hell.
Once I thought, I could go it on my own,
I was proud, I thought I could do it alone.
Satan deceived me, I thought I was right,
And all the while, I was the devil’s delight.
Once I thought, everyone goes to Heaven,
I was sure Heaven’s bliss, to all was giv’n.
Satan deceived me, I thought I was on my way,
For all the while, I thought I was okay.
Then one day, the Spirit clearly spoke to me,
Telling me about, life eternally.
Satan wouldn’t deceive me, any more,
Now I was headed, for Heav’n’s blissful shore.
Now I knew for certain, without a doubt,
What life without Jesus, was all about.
Hell would be mine, in the twinkling of an eye,
I would go to Hell for sure, when I’d die.
I changed my thinking, I knew I must,
I accepted Jesus, and Him I trust.
I’m assured Heaven is mine, this I now know,
Because I trust Jesus, there I will go!

I THOUGHT I KNEW IT ALL!
I thought I knew it all, but I was wrong,
With the devil’s crowd, I just tagg’d along.
Walking on that broad road, headed for Hell,
And all the time, I thought I was doing well.
I thought I knew it all, thought I was right,
But hanging with that crowd, days were dark as night.
I made choices, I should never have made,
And never for a moment, was I afraid.
I thought I knew it all, my pride stood tall,
Never thinking, I was headed for a fall.
I wanted no part of humility,
I lived my life, so wild and recklessly.
The Lord tried and tried, to speak to my heart,
But when I’d feel Him tugging, I’d quickly depart.
I thought I knew it all, I wanted things my way,
Great stubborn unbelief, I did display.
But Jesus would not, back away from me,
He’d speak to my heart, so persistently.
Then one day, I truly, started to think,
“Stubborn one, you’re standing, close to Hell’s brink.”
I kept thinking more, with each passing hour,
Still I wouldn’t give in, to the Lord’s pow’r.
“You do not know it all,” one day I said,
For my lonely heart, was filling with dread.
Fin’lly I admitted, “Christ is what I need,”
Then to His loving Spirit, I paid heed.
I didn’t know it all, now ‘tis plain to see,
I needed my Saviour, for eternity.

I WANT TO DO RIGHT BY YOU
Lord, I want always to do right by You,
In my thoughts and words, and all I do.
Help me Lord, to stay on the narrow path,
For I want Your blessing, not Your wrath.
Lord, to others around, let me do right,
Help me to walk in Your precious light.
Let me imitate You in all I do,
Lord, I want to be worthy of You.
Let me do right to those You bring my way,
Lord, I trust You, but I need help to obey.
Let them see You, in my words and deeds,
That what I do say, they might take heed.
A bad example I don’t want to be,
Don’t let the devil, play havoc with me.
To everyone Lord, let me do right,
Let me always be pleasing in Your sight.
By: His servant, Connie Kramer Aug.9,2002 # 887
I WANT YOU
Lord, I want You with me, in all I do,
For I truly am helpless, without You.
I need Your strength, I need You by my side,
I am privileged Lord, to have You abide.
I want You to help, in choices I make,
My lack of wisdom, causes many mistakes.
I blunder each time I neglect to pray,
I need Your wisdom to go the right way.
I want You to show, the way that is right,
Lord, I need Your guidance and Your Light.
The path ahead is dark, not always clear,
It’s a blessing to know that You are near.
Lord, I want You, to help in all things,
On my own I will have just blunderings.
You are the Vine, Lord, and I’ll cling to You,
I need Your strength in ev’ry thing I do.

I WILL NEVER LEAVE YOU . . . .June 2000 Message
If we be perfect thru’ Christ, and upright,
Fearing, revering God; things can be bright.
He will uphold us, whatever may come,
Till we behold Him, in Our Heav’nly home.
Satan shall buffet our body so weak,
Let us remember; our Saviour, so meek.
No one who has e’er walked here below,
Has been thru’ the suff’ring that Christ did know.
Shall we receive only good from God’s Hand?
When His only Son agonized on this land.
If we remember to give God first place,
He shall be with us as we run our race.
Bad things may come on our pathway of life,
That which we fear the most, may cause us strife.
Let us not lose our faith, nor trust in Him,
And that long pathway will never be dim.
Great troubles may come when we least expect,
And over our lives, we may then reflect.
“What did I do to deserve this? why me Lord?”
Then we recall what He says in His Word.
He knoweth exactly the way that I take,
He’s watching to see the progress I make.
God makes us a promise, one He won’t break,
I will never leave you; never forsake!

I WISH NOT
I wish not to see, my sins more plain,
For they loom o’er me, giving much pain.
Lord, help me live this life without sin,
Give pow’r and wisdom as each day begins.
I wish not to know, my heart’s wickedness,
For this thought gives my soul great distress.
Lord, help me live this life pure and true,
Give me the desire, to imitate You.
I wish not to feel, arrogance and pride,
For these evils in me, should not reside.
Lord, help me live this life in humility,
Give insight to know, the greatness of Thee.
I wish not to fail You, day after day,
For You want us to walk the right way.
Lord, help me live this life to please You,
Let Your Spirit lead, in all that I do.

I wonder what goes thru’ peoples’ minds,
They don’t think of God, loving and kind.
Most must think, there’s no eternity,
As they live day to day, sinfully.
I wonder just what, people do think?
Do they really think, God is extinct?
Do they really think, God does not see?
All the bad things they do, wickedly?
Don’t people know, God sees all they do?
Ev’rything is clearly, in His view.
You can run from Him, but you can’t hide,
He sees where you are, from where He resides!
Do people really, believe His Book?
I wonder, how many ever look?
Most don’t want to know, what He expects,
And most who know, His rules they reject!
Do people consider, God’s great pow’r?
Someday the wicked, before Him will cow’r!
He will have the last word, as they’ll see,
The lake of fire, for eternity.
Many don’t think, there’s life after death,
But God states, one day all will have breath.
When resurrection, comes into play,
All shall stand before Him, on Judgment Day!
Do you know, where you’ll spend eternity?
You do NOT want, Hells’ horrid agony!
Heaven awaits all, who trust the Lord,
Believe God, trust Christ, as told in His Word!
THANK YOU JESUS! THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU!
What an incredible God we serve!

THERE IS ONLY ONE WAY TO GOD THE FATHER, WHO IS IN HEAVEN!!!
John 14:6 Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me. (KJV) Only JESUS can save your soul! Please believe this!
John 3:16-18 For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. 17 For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved. 18 He that believeth on him is not condemned: but he that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God. (KJV) Jesus’ Words!
John 3:36 He that believeth on the Son hath everlasting life: and he that believeth not the Son shall not see life; but the wrath of God abideth on him. (KJV) John the Baptist’s words!
1Jn. 5:11-12 And this is the record, that God hath given to us eternal life, and this life is in his Son. 12 He that hath the Son hath life; and he that hath not the Son of God hath not life. (KJV) The apostle John’s words!
What will it be like, to have no more pain?
After years of suff’ring, with little gain.
What will it be like, to have no sorrow?
Only joy we’ll then know, all our tomorrows!
No grievous mourning, for there none will die,
Just rest and peace, on which we can rely!
No more hatred and anger, a whole new way,
Always kindness and love, with each new day!
No more dark night, for wicked ones to prey,
There will be no evil, on any day!
The Lord God shall be our Light, for e’er more,
No need of candles or the sun, on Hean’n’s shore!
I wonder, will we be shocked not seeing some?
We know not the mind and heart, of anyone!
Some we thought would be there, may not be,
We must be serious, ‘bout eternity!
I wonder, when we do get to Heaven,
What resources, will we be given?
Will we know at a glance, the prophets of old?
So that we our gratitude, can be told!
I wonder, what’s the first thing you will do?
What is the first thing, which you will pursue?
Would you find Jesus, and Him glorify?
Humbly grateful, you are there to testify!
As for me, I will find my Lord, so sweet,
And fall before Him, and kiss His precious Feet!
I’m not worthy, of what He did for me,
But I’s so grateful, for life eternally!

THERE IS ONLY ONE WAY TO GOD THE FATHER, WHO IS IN HEAVEN!!!
John 14:6 Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me. (KJV) . . . If you want to go where the Father is, you must go through Jesus! . . . Are you allowing the LORD to guide you to the bliss of Heaven? If not, WHY not?
Psalm 73:24 Thou shalt guide me with thy counsel, and afterward receive me to glory. (KJV)
It does not get better than this. No matter what happens, whether I understand it or not, IF I simply trust Him; I will go on with Him where He is when I leave this world.
Rev. 21:4 And 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: for the former things are passed away. (KJV)
Rev 21:5-8 And he that sat upon the throne said, Behold, I make all things new. And he said unto me, Write: for these words are true and faithful. 6 And he said unto me, It is done. I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end. I will give unto him that is athirst of the fountain of the water of life freely. 7 He that overcometh shall inherit all things; and I will be his God, and he shall be my son. 8 But the fearful, and unbelieving, and the abominable, and murderers, and whoremongers, and sorcerers, and idolaters, and all liars, shall have their part in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone: which is the second death. (KJV)
Rev. 22:3-4 And there shall be no more curse: but the throne of God and of the Lamb shall be in it; and his servants shall serve him: 4 And they shall see his face; and his name shall be in their foreheads. (KJV)
Rev. 22:5 And there shall be no night there; and they need no candle, neither light of the sun; for the Lord God giveth them light: and they shall reign for ever and ever. (KJV)
Rev 22:14-15 Blessed are they that do his commandments, that they may have right to the tree of life, and may enter in through the gates into the city. 15 For without are dogs, and sorcerers, and whoremongers, and murderers, and idolaters, and whosoever loveth and maketh a lie. (KJV)
Mat. 17:1-4 And after six days Jesus taketh Peter, James, and John his brother, and bringeth them up into an high mountain apart, 2 And was transfigured before them: and his face did shine as the sun, and his raiment was white as the light. 3 And, behold, there appeared unto them Moses and Elias talking with him. 4 Then answered Peter, and said unto Jesus, Lord, it is good for us to be here: if thou wilt, let us make here three tabernacles; one for thee, and one for Moses, and one for Elias. (KJV) - - - Peter, James and John knew the prophets!
1 Pet. 1:3-9 Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, which according to his abundant mercy hath begotten us again unto a lively hope by the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead, 4 To an inheritance incorruptible, and undefiled, and that fadeth not away, reserved in heaven for you, 5 Who are kept by the power of God through faith unto salvation ready to be revealed in the last time. 6 Wherein ye greatly rejoice, though now for a season, if need be, ye are in heaviness through manifold temptations: 7 That the trial of your faith, being much more precious than of gold that perisheth, though it be tried with fire, might be found unto praise and honour and glory at the appearing of Jesus Christ: 8 Whom having not seen, ye love; in whom, though now ye see him not, yet believing, ye rejoice with joy unspeakable and full of glory: 9 Receiving the end of your faith, even the salvation of your souls. (KJV)
I WON’T GO TO HELL
“I won’t go to Hell”, most people would say,
They really believe this, in their own way!
They don’t know what the Bible does tell,
Reject Jesus, and in Hell, you shall dwell.
Most think only bad people will go there,
Like Hitler, Mussolini; ones who scare.
They think they don’t sin; they’re moral and kind,
But there’s a day coming, the truth they’ll find!
Just the evil, wicked hoodlums shall go,
To that horrible place, so far below.
“I won’t go there, I don’t do bad things,
I’ll go to Heaven, and with angels sing.”
Most feel in their heart they won’t go to Hell,
But without a ‘passport’, there they shall dwell!
No matter how good, or moral you are,
Without Jesus, Heaven, will be barred!
“Hell is a place for others,” you may say,
But friend, without Christ, YOU are on the way!
God’s Word clearly tells, we must trust His Son,
Or Hell, with its agony, you have won!
You don’t want to go to that awful place,
And you don’t have to; He’ll save you, by grace!
Just trust Jesus; He’s your ‘passport’ today,
And you won’t go to Hell, not any day!

I’D BE DOOMED!
A fish out of water, that’s what I’d be,
Without my Saviour, who gives victory!
Problems would seem, to have no end in sight,
I praise You Jesus, for Your glorious Light!
I’d be like a bird, with a broken wing,
If I did not have Jesus, as my King!
I’d be so alone, when things would go wrong,
Because on my own, I’m weak, never strong!
Without my Shepherd, I’d be a lost sheep,
Headed for the pits of Hell, e’er so deep.
To all the dangers, myself I couldn’t defend,
On my Saviour and Lord, I must depend!
I’d be like a person, who could not swim,
Tossed into deep waters, so dark and grim.
Without my Saviour, I surely would die,
But with Him near, I can trust and rely!
Like a dog with only three legs to walk,
Without Christ Jesus, predators would stalk!
But with Him by my side, I’ve nought to fear,,
For I am assured, His Presence is near!
I’d be like a rose, with its beauty gone,
I would surely be the old devil’s pawn.
Without my Lord, Satan has full control,
Hell would be, the destiny of my soul!
I would be doom’d, without my precious Lord,
All my cries for help, would never be heard.
But I praise the Name, of God’s only Son,
Accepting Him, gives eternal salvation!

I’d rather be God’s doorman, for eternity,
Than spend one horrid hour, in Hell’s dark agony.
I’d rather be a poor man, and be God’s friend,
Than be a rich man in Hell, where screaming ne’er ends.
I’d rather scrub the floors, in God’s mansion above,
Than enter Hell’s dark abyss, so vacant of love.
I’d rather serve my Master, what e’er His demands,
Than to be locked in Hell, ne’er to see Heaven’s land.
I’d rather cast ev’ry bit of pride away,
That I might be exalted, by my Lord some day.
I’d rather be humble, and enter Heaven’s gate,
Than wind up in Hell, and hear the words: “It’s too late.”
I’d rather walk this day, as Christ does bid me walk,
And have my heart bring forth right words, when I talk.
I’d rather please my Lord, and strive to obey,
Than to be condemned to Hell, for always.
I’d rather trust Jesus, God’s one and only Son,
Than believe Satan, who deceives most ev’ry one.
I’d rather walk by faith, trusting all the way,
Than anger my Lord, when I doubt and disobey.
I’d rather serve my Master, and be at His Feet,
Than be a rich man being served dainties so sweet.
I’d rather be in Heaven with my Lord so true,
Than be locked in Hell, with no pardon or rescue.

I'd Rather . . . March 2012 Message
I'd rather serve my Master, and be at His Feet,
Than be a rich man, being served dainties so sweet.
We all have decisions, in this life to decide,
Will we serve the Lord in Heaven? . . . .or in Hell reside?
I'd rather be a poor man, and the Lord believe,
Than be a rich man, and the devil's lies receive.
Many choices stand before us, as this life we live,
It depends what we choose, on what place the Lord gives.
I'd rather follow Jesus, on the path of light,
Than traipse after Satan, on broad roads black as night.
The Lord will guide us, on those narrow roads so strait,
To keep following satan, you decide your own fate.
I'd rather love the Lord, and be the Father's child,
Than to listen to Satan, and from Heaven be exiled.
When you choose the devil, and all his wicked ways,
You'll spend eternity in Hell, all of your days.
I'd rather obey God, and always do His will,
Than allow Satan, worldly desires to instill.
There are only two places, in eternity,
The Lake of Fire, OR Heaven's amazing beauty.
I'd rather be a fool, in this world's evil eyes,
Than be an unbeliever, who my God denies.
Choosing another god, is the wrong way to go,
It will lead just to Hell, and eternal sorrow.
I'd rather go to Heaven, and live with the Lord,
Spending ev'n one hour in Hell, I cannot afford.
Lord, help me always to choose, Your will and right paths,
For I ne'er want to face, the judgment of Your wrath.

Most commit the sin of idolatry,
And it leads to eternal Hell’s agony.
So many things in life, take the Lord’s place,
Which leads to great displeasure, on His Face.
With money and riches, Satan does tempt,
And not one person, from it is exempt.
Storing treasures on Earth, is stupidity,
For all the world offers, is temporary.
Treasures in Heav’n, should be first on our mind,
When we lust for wealth, Satan our eyes blinds.
Idolatry dear one, is covetousness,
When we’re greedy for gain, God will not bless.
Idolatry can be, any pleasure,
Sports or sex, or leisure without measure.
Anything you put above God, is wrong,
You’re speeding down the broad road, with a throng.
By: His servant, Connie Kramer Oct.11, 2005 # 1093
Idolatry is a serious thing,
For it, the wrath of God, on you does bring.
Anything above God, that you place,
Means one day, condemnation you’ll face.
Riches, an idol that leads astray,
Love of money, tempts us ev’ry day.
To place above God, what wealth can buy,
Is dreadful sin, in God’s Holy Eye.
Pleasure too, can be idolatry,
From this idol, very few are free.
Sports of all kinds, make people go wild,
Pleasure makes folks forget, they’re God’s child.
Idolatry is glory and fame,
These, never think of Jesus’ Name.
They want the world to see all they do,
Pride, pride, pride; don’t let it get to you.
It is a jealous God that we serve,
Our love and affections, He deserves.
He must be first in our life, always,
If we want to travel, Heav’n’s highway.
Idolatry leads only to Hell,
Where all walking the broad road, shall dwell.
Trust and obey Christ Jesus this day,
For just He can show you, Heav’n’s display.

If in Christ Jesus you do abide,
Evil thoughts and actions will subside.
Sin once rampant, now has lost its hold,
The Spirit of righteousness now unfolds.
If with Christ Jesus you fellowship,
He’s there! no matter how hard the trip!
Tho’ the path ahead be dark and steep,
The Spirit of light will guide and keep!
If Christ be in you, and you in Him,
The road of life will never be dim.
In rugged high mountains, or valleys low,
The Spirit of Christ will blessings bestow!
If you walk humbly in Christ our Lord,
Things of the flesh you can now discard.
If we are God’s children as we do say,
From all evil, we must run away!
If you ‘put on Christ Jesus’ as your dress,
You’ll want to do only righteousness.
You’ll not want to stain your clothes so white,
Cast filthy sin away, do what’s right.
If you take on Christ’s tremendous Name,
You must walk in the light, not bring Him shame!
You must do only things He would do,
A life of meekness you must pursue.

IF CHRIST IS YOUR SAVIOUR
If Christ is your Saviour, God blesses you
In so many ways, and in all that you do.
You are indeed a child of God, so great,
Did you e’er wonder? “Just how do I rate?”
‘Tis not works you do, that make you His child,
Only the ‘Works of Christ’ are undefiled.
We must go thru’ Christ, to get to God,
This means ev’ry nation, the world abroad.
If Christ is your Saviour, peace is with you,
Peace, down in your heart; peace, warm and true.
We have perfect peace, whose mind is on Him,
Worldly peace can’t compare; it’s false and dim.
If Christ is your Saviour, please take heed,
God did promise, to supply all our needs.
Food, drink, clothing and shelter He will give,
If you are His child, as long as you live.
If Christ is your Saviour, you’ll not see Hell,
Instead, with God, in Heav’n you’ll dwell.
Eternal life is promised, thru’ God’s Son,
Acceptance of Christ, means Heav’n, you’ve won!

IF HE DIDN’T CARE
Would He have died, if He didn’t care?
My friend, His love is awesome and rare!
No one could love more than He,
And His love lasts, for eternity!
If He didn’t care, He’d not have died,
But He submitted, and was crucified!
His precious Blood, on the cross was shed,
That those who trust Him, would have no dread.
Would He have left Heaven’s security?
If He didn’t care, for you and me?
He left the glory of the heavenly host,
To come and suffer, on earthly coasts.
If He didn’t care, He wouldn’t have come,
Leaving the comfort of His heav’nly Home.
He loves us much; He really does care,
And our burdens of life, He does share.
If He didn’t care, He’d not be near,
But He abides, chasing away our fears.
He never leaves, never forsakes,
Lovingly forgives our horrid mistakes.
He does care! Our precious Saviour cares!
And all our troubles, He gladly shares!
What a blessing He is to us all,
His awesome love on us does befall.

If I Lift Me Up . . . September 2015 Message
If I lift me up, God will put me down,
On all pride and arrogance, He does frown.
If I think I’m better, than any one,
I greatly displease my Saviour, God’s Son.
If I look with scorn, at those on the street,
Dome day I’ll be humbled, at Jesus’ Feet.
If I look with pride, at all that I own,
The Lord’s chastisement, will clearly be shown.
If I think the Lord loves me, more than you,
I certainly am not, one of the “few.”
Pride is strange, it creeps in so subtlely,
Satan is behind it, so deceitfully.
If I think you’re unworthy, of forgiveness,
Judgment of this kind, the Lord will not bless.
I must forgive, or God won’t forgive me,
Satan is glad, when we live sinfully.
Pride is opposite, of humility,
God doesn’t want us to live, arrogantly.
If we lift ourselves up, God will put us down,
We must be careful, if we want a crown.
I must not be puffed up, must not envy,
Ne’er in myself, should I ever glory.
If I want to please God, I must be meek,
Pride and arrogance, I must not seek.
I must realize, I’m nothing at all,
Knowing pride surely comes, ‘fore a fall.
If I some day, want a heavenly crown,
I won’t lift me up, and God won’t have to put me down.

Consistently there from Heaven above!

If I’m Wise
If I’m wise, I’ll want His will for me,
As I walk on, to eternity.
To demand my way, is foolishness,
To act in this way, God will not bless.
If I’m wise, I will trust and obey,
I can’t reach Heav’n, any other way.
The Gospel of Christ, I must believe,
And the Son of God, I must receive.
If I’m wise, love must be in my heart,
From hatred and wrong, I must depart.
Way down deep in my heart, God can see,
I must do right, to live eternally.
If I’m wise, my thoughts I must control,
For I want it to be, well with my soul.
God knows my thoughts, ev’ry single one,
He knows the end, ‘fore a thing’s begun.
If I’m wise, love must be a part of me,
Love must be active, that’s how it must be.
Love the Lord, my God, with all my heart,
Love others too, from that, don’t depart.
If I’m wise, I must stay in His Word,
Ne’er forgetting, stay near to the Lord.
God’s Word is wisdom, close I must stay,
For I want to please Him, ev’ry day.

Reprimand me, as Your Word I explore.
Let me learn to love, with Your perfect love,
Let me be fitted, for life above.
If only I’d not think evil things,
I know I would receive more blessings.
Help me to walk that strait, narrow path,
Keep me dear Lord, away from God’s wrath.
So many things in life, I do so wrong,
For I am weak without You, never strong.
Stay near to me Lord, ever so near,
If only You will, gone is my fear.

IF YOU DON’T KNOW CHRIST
Think ‘bout your worst pain and agony,
‘Bout your deepest sorrow and misery;
‘Bout the greatest suffering you’ve been thru’,
The depths of Hell will be much worse for you!
Think about awful unhappiness,
And ‘bout all the times you were friendless.
‘Bout the times you were lonely and blue,
Eternal Hell will be much worse for you!
Just think ‘bout the sun’s sweltering heat,
And so dark you can’t see your hands or feet.
Think ‘bout a dungeon with no exit door,
Eternal death is this, and much more!
Think about no light ever again,
No water to ever ease thirst’s pain.
You can avoid all these awful things,
For Christ can all the opposite bring!

Be fill’d with the Spirit, not the world, Eph.3:18; 5:18; Col.1:9; Jam.4:4; 1 John 2:15-17

And sexual sins, in all degrees. 1 Cor.6:9; Lev.18:22
Hatred, lust, lewd and wanton desires, Gal.5:20; Eph.5:5
They will pull you down, in sin’s filthy mire.
Varience, jealousy, wrath and strife, Gal.5:20; Rom.1:29
Don’t have a place in a Christian’s life!
Rebellion, witchcraft, idolatry, Gal.5:21; Rom.1:30; 2 Tim.3:4; Eph.5:5
ALL these are sin, to both you and me!
Murder, wild parties, and drunkenness, 1 John 3:15; Gal.5:21; 1 Cor.6:10
The likes of these, God will never bless!
Gossip, lies, cheating, stealing and greed, 1Cor.6:8-10; Pro.18:6-8; 26:20; Rev.21:8; 22:15
NONE of these vices, should we e’er heed. Mat.5:22; Eph.5:4; 2 Tim.3:2-3
If you profess Christ; you must live right,
His Holy Spirit, will give you might. Rom.8:9,11,14; Gal.5:14;18; Jn. 6:63; 14:17; 1 Jn. 4:6
The Spirit will produce “fruits” in us, Gal.5:22-23
These “fruits” make us victorious! Jam.3:17-18; John 15:1-5
Love, joy, peace, patience and gentleness, Gal.5:22;
Faith, goodness, self-control and meekness, Gal.5:23
For there is no law against these things, Gal.5:23
These “fruits” will only much blessings bring!

Such great wondrous beauty, you will behold!
Thanks be to a loving Saviour who cares,
When you walk that street, I too, will be there!
One day when you reach Heav’n’s blissful shore,
You’ll experience blessings, God holds in store!
All because Christ Jesus loves me and you,
When you get to Heav’n; I’ll be there too!
One day when you’ve been there, ten thousand years,
With never a worry, and no more tears!
Glory be to Jesus, for He loves us so,
I’ll be there to honor Him, I want you to know!
One day when to our God, you sing your praise,
I’ll be there in that throng, my voice to raise!
I’ll worship Jesus, the Almighty King,
And thank Him for that life, just He could bring!

I KNOW HIM . . . WILL??
Will I know Him, when He comes in the clouds?
Will I know His Voice, booming clear and loud?
I’ll know Him! for His Spirit shall reveal,
My awesome Saviour, who is so real!
Will I know Christ at the Judgment Seat?
In this approaching time, when Him I meet?
I’ll know Him! and know His judgment is right,
And Jesus shall grant me a garment of white!
Will I know Christ as He sits on that Throne?
Will I lose crowns, that could have been my own?
I’ll know Him! and know there’s no mistake,
For I’ll live for e’er, with judgments He makes.
Will I know Christ in that City of Gold?
Will I have regrets, as His Face I behold?
I’ll know Him! I’ll know that precious Face,
And I’ll know I’m there, just by His grace!
I will know my Saviour, instantly!
And I’ll praise and thank Him eternally!
I’ll fall to the ground, and kiss His Feet,
When my awesome Lord, I finally meet!
Yes, yes, yes! I’ll know Him!

I’M HEAVEN BOUND
I’m Heaven bound, as I journey thru’
This world of preparation; “How ‘bout you?”
On this Earth, we’ll decide where we’ll go,
To Heaven with God, or Hell below.
Our soul lives forever; this I know,
God patiently tries, Heaven to show.
He’ll give ev’ry chance, your soul to save,
But ‘twill be no more chance after the grave.
It’s your decision, one you must make,
I pray that you, won’t make a mistake.
There are only two places you can go,
To glorious Heaven, or Hell below.
Just one ‘Key’ can open Heaven’s gate,
And that is Christ Jesus; don’t hesitate!
Believe God, accept Jesus this day,
And you’ll be Heaven bound; all the way.
Only Christ can save your soul from Hell,
You certainly don’t want there to dwell.
Christ is standing outside your heart’s door,
Open unto Him; and Heaven’s in store!

I’M NOT ALONE
When I awake in the morn’s soft light,
I’m not alone, no matter the plight.
My Lord is there, so close by my side,
He’ll not forsake, but instead, abide.
As the day progresses, come what may,
I’m not alone, a minute of the day.
My Lord is there, gentle and so near,
He’ll never leave; I’ve nothing to fear.
The sun starts to lower in the sky,
I’m not alone, if things go awry.
My Lord is there, with power and love,
To encourage and strengthen from above.
The stars and moon appear in the night,
I’m not alone, not out of His sight.
My Lord is there, for me, and for you,
So willing and loving, and so true.
I’m not alone, not at any time,
My Lord is there, with His love so fine.
Not even one day could I get thru’,
Without Jesus’ help, how about you?

I’M NOT SORRY
I’m not sorry Jesus calls me ‘friend’,
He’s always there, my needs to attend.
Always there, stormy weather or fair,
Blessing me with His love and care.
I’m not sorry I’m one of His fold,
He’s my Shepherd, and He will uphold.
He gives me living water and bread,
I’ll not go to Hell, but Heav’n instead!
I’m not sorry I opened the door,
To my dear Saviour, whom I adore.
Outside my heart, so patient to wait,
I finally saw His love and grace.
I’m not sorry some persecute me,
For loving and serving Him happily.
So very little, I do each day,
For all He’s done, I’ll never repay.
I’m not sorry I must bear my cross,
For without Him, I’d be a total loss.
The things I must give up are so few,
To have salvation, and love so true!

Yet my awesome God, has pity on me!
All because Christ Jesus I did accept,

All because Christ’s precious Blood justifies,

I’M NOT WORTHY
So often, I do things I should never do,
I don’t feel worthy of His love so true.
Evil is present within me; deep inside,
The war is constant with the Spirit who abides.
I can feel the apostle Paul’s agony,
The torments he felt, are the same for me.
In Romans seven: fourteen thru’ twenty five,
Paul struggl’d with sin, the same as I do strive.
When I want to do right, I always do wrong,
The sin deep within me, is ever so strong.
On my own, I am rotten thru’ and thru’,
Yet the Spirit persuades, right things to pursue.
I feel torn apart, by the old me and the new,
If it were not for Christ, I could not continue.
I don’t feel worthy, when Satan does oppress,
Yet Jesus encourages, as He does bless.
My humble life is His, tho’ I’m unworthy,
How He could love me is a great mystery.
I’m suppos’d to imitate Him, in all things,
Yet evil takes hold, and that guilt surely stings.
How wretched I am, yet You chose sinful me,
That’s why I must serve You for eternity.
How I thank You Jesus, for what You have done,
Stand by me Lord, and help me, evil to shun.

I’m Not Worthy
The awful things I’ve done, You have forgiv’n,
Thus allowing me, access to Heaven.
Your awesome grace, compassion and mercy,
Give me the Gift, of life eternally.
In the depths of the sea, my sins You cast,
You remember them no more, they’re gone and past.
I’m not worthy, to stand before You,
But Your amazing love, keeps shining thru’.
No matter how evil, the things I have done,
You have forgiv’n me, because of Your Son.
I’m washe’d in His Blood, I have His righteousness.
My filthy rags are gone, O’ how You do bless.
My horrid sins, You remember no more,
One day I will live, on Heav’n’s blissful shore.
Face to face with You Lord, then I will walk,
And with all the all the many saints, I will talk.
I so realize, worthy I am not,
But Jesus paid the price, my soul He bought.
He set my soul free, when on the cross He died,
My Saviour, for me, for me, You were crucified.
For me, for me, You endured agony,
Precious Lord, how can I ever thank Thee?
This amazing kind of love, love so true,
This love precious Lord, comes only from You.

I’m Nothing At All . . . Jan. 2006 Message
Lord, without You, I’m nothing at all,
On my own Lord, I stumble and fall.
I need Your strength, I need Your pow’r,
I can’t go without You, not ev’n an hour.
I’m nothing at all, without You near,
Without You my life, is just doubt and fear.
I need Your love, to encourage me,
Just thru’ You, can I have victory.
I’m nothing at all, a branch so dead,
You are the Vine, thru’ You, I am fed.
Without You Lord, it’s as dark as night,
But You can make the darkest path bright.
I’m nothing at all, no wisdom have I,
You must equip me, and knowledge apply.
I’m but a fool, if You’re not by my side,
I’m nothing at all, if You don’t abide.
I’m nothing at all, I couldn’t go on,
Without You I’d be, the devil’s pawn.
Satan would bind me, in darkness deep,
Without You Lord, it’s Hell that I’d reap.
I thank You Jesus, for all You have done,
By Your death on the cross, new life I’ve won.
I’m nothing without You, please stay close by,
My love and trust for You, I’ll not deny.

I’M SO GRATEFUL
God always was, always will be,
From way back, thru’ eternity.
Never changing, always the same,
I’m so grateful, I praise His Name.
God is righteous, just and true,
Not as the likes of me and you.
Always loving and merciful,
For all these things, I’m so grateful.
God is gracious and very kind,
Never does leave us in a bind.
Always truthful, never does lie,
I’m so grateful He is on High.
God is powerful and so pure,
Always trust Him, for He is sure!
He is all knowing, was always,
I’m so grateful He knows our ways.
Omnipresent is our God so great,
His Spirit this world does permeate.
He’s here, He’s there, He’s ev’ry where,
I’m so grateful He always cares.

Most people ignore God, totally,
As they walk the road, of the enemy!
These say they are “Christian,” but they lie,
No hypocrite can e’er, qualify.
To ignore God, is to disobey,
You can’t disregard Him, day after day.
You can’t pursue pleasure; me, me, me,
Ignoring God, is iniquity.
To neglect God, will bring on His wrath,
For you walk with Satan, on his path.
If you ignore totally, Christ the Lord,
Heav’n’s beauty will ne’er, be your reward!
Jesus said just a “few,” there will be,
That enter, Heav’n’s bliss and beauty.
The masses who scorn God, and Him ignore,
Will ne’er see the splendor, of Heav’n’s shore.
So many folks today, disregard,
Christ on the cross, and His Hand, nail scarr’d.
He died for us all, we must not ignore,
And just Jesus, can get us, thru’ Heav’n’s door.
Most people ignore God, totally,
As they walk onward, to eternity!
God’s very Presence, they simply reject,
Beware, just Jesus from Hell, can protect.
To ignore God, is stupidity,
For all walk, toward eternity.
Just Christ Jesus, can get you to Heav’n,
To all those who ignore Him, Hell is giv’n.

UP: Only Christ can reach down and save, Jn.3:13-18
Just He can give life to the deprav’d. Jn.3:36; 5:24; 8:24

‘Tis wisdom, to follow in His steps. 1 P.2:21
He’ll teach only what is good and true, Jn.16:13; 1 Jn.2:27
A great wonder; you’re a whole new you! Ep.4:24; Col.3;10

And your heart breaks, from the heavy load. Ps.32:3; 38:4; 51:3

Always so near to comfort and guide. Mt.28:20; Heb.13:5
He is our Life, our Strength, and our Peace, Jn.14:6, 27; 15:5
And His love and mercy shall never cease! Jer.31:3; Ps.103:17; Ep.2:4; 1 Jn.3:1

IN GOD’S EYES
The start of greatness is to be meek,
And in all things our God we should seek.
God uses the small in a large way,
The start of it all is to trust and obey.
To increase greatness we must be less,
Striving to serve Him, we will progress.
Christ’s sheep have two marks; the ears and feet,
They hear, they follow; ever so fleet.
Perfect greatness is to admit we’re nought,
With His precious Blood our souls He bought.
We’re nothing at all without the Lord,
He is much worthy to be adored.

The perfection of greatness is to be nothing.”
IN LIGHT OF ETERNITY
Let me live with eternity in mind,
To lost souls, don’t let me be blind.
Dear Lord, grant me love, and compassion too,
Grant me boldness, and ‘words’ to bring them to you.
Lord, I don’t think enough ‘bout eternity,
And all the lost ones, in Hell’s agony.
Grant me more love, that the Gospel I’ll share,
Exchange this hard heart, for one that does care.
Hell is a ‘place’ where ALL lost souls will go,
And forever, have nothing but sorrow.
Unending thirst, and eternal darkness,
Let me tell them of Christ; let me witness.
Let me have concern for all the lost souls,
Lord, let bringing the Gospel, be my goal.
Let me live in light of eternity,
Lord, grant me compassion, and mercy.
In light of eternity, let me live,
That the Good News of Jesus, I might give!
Let me show more love, from a tender heart true,
Please give me ‘words’ that might bring them to you!
Don’t let me be selfish with your great love,
Let me tell them ‘bout blissful Heav’n above!
Let me live in light of eternity,
Let me tell of ‘Salvation’, a GIFT so free!

IN SPIRIT AND TRUTH
In spirit and truth, we must worship Thee,
For Heav’n to be ours, for eternity.
Our worship must be, completely sincere,
And You, gracious Father, we must revere.
In spirit and truth, from deep down within,
We must truly repent, from all known sin.
We must mourn, and from our sin walk away,
Or true love from the Lord, we don’t display.
In spirit and truth, our worship must be,
We must imitate Christ, in humility.
Far, far away, we must cast off all pride,
If we want the Spirit, with us to abide.
In spirit and truth, and from a true heart,
Worship must be inward, or God will depart.
Rejoice with trembling, serve the Lord with fear,
Honor and praise Him, feel His Presence near.
True inward worship, begins in your heart,
Reverence the Lord, and from Him, don’t depart.
This awesome Being, your soul must obey,
Worship in spirit and truth, ev’ry day.
Sit, stand, kneel; repeat pray’r after pray’r,
Outward worship of God, disperses in the air.
Sacraments, rituals, vain customs too,
All are vain and void, and never help you.
In spirit and truth, our worship must be,
Or Heav’n won’t be ours, in eternity.
Jesus, He and He alone, is the only Way,
We must believe God, and trust and obey.

IN THE LINE OF DUTY
In the line of duty, it’s a fact,
Like our precious Jesus, we must act.
Doing only things that He would do,
A hard life we must live, this is true.
Love, compassion, generosity,
These things are in the line of duty.
When someone hurts us, we must forgive,
Then God will forgive us, as we live.
In the line of duty, we must bless,
Those who would curse us, or do oppress.
Be honest in the sight of all men,
Living peaceably, as God’s children.
Rejoice with all them that do have joy,
Never envy, nor their bliss destroy.
Be of the same mind toward others,
A meek, loving mind, to your brothers.
Patient in trials, rejoice in hope,
Continue in prayer, as you cope.
Quench not the Spirit, thank Him always,
In the line of duty, all our days.
In the line of duty, we must tell,
Of our wondrous Saviour; never quell!
We’re soldiers of Christ, we must do right,
Take a stand for Him; fight a good fight.

I gave up all vanity and pride,
For only then, would Jesus reside.
In the shadow of His cross, I knew,
That I was one of his chosen few.
One of God’s children, Jesus made me,
Privileged I am, for eternity.
In the shadow of His cross, I saw,
Without Jesus, I was deeply flaw’d.
My sin had left a dark crimson stain,
In that life, I did not want to remain.
In the shadow of His cross, I’d face,
Hatred, persecution and disgrace.
The hated Jesus, they would hate me,
He told me so, ‘twas no mystery.
In the shadow of my Saviour’s cross,
I see all I have, and count it loss.
Things of this world, are not my treasure,
Christ is my All, He’s far beyond measure.
Many things I saw, as I knelt that day,
And He assur’d me of a better way.
He made things clear, as I did repent,
I know His grace will be sufficient.

IN YOU CAME
Your gentle nudges, I did not heed,
I truly thought: “You, I don’t need!”
Why should I give up those pleasing things?
That life in the ‘fast lane’ to me bring?
Gossip, cursing, lies, and blasphemy,
Cheating, stealing and immorality.
Drugs made me forget sorrow and pain,
Liquor, to me was such a great gain!
On my list, church was not number one,
Ball games and fishing were much more fun!
All night parties, with booze running free,
These were things, I wanted for me.
But Lord, You just kept tugging at my heart,
‘Twas plain; from these things I should depart!
But You let the choice completely up to me,
You’d not force me to turn from iniquity!
My soul seemed, to reach out to You,
My heart looked at life, from a diff’rent view!
Love from You was made, so very clear,
And I could feel Your Presence, ever so near!
Then into my heart, in a special way,
Willingly You came, that precious day!
When I opened the door, in You came,
Praise You Jesus, life is not the same!

IN YOUR WILL
In Your will Father, I know I must be,
Or I will not possess, serenity.
Peace, joy, contentment; come only from You,
If I stay in Your will, so wise and true.
I know Father, I must be in Your will,
For I long for blessings, my soul to fill.
Life without You, is confusion for sure,
I must be in Your wise will, to endure.
Life in this world, is vast uncertainty,
So many decisions, to make for me.
So often I choose, to go the wrong way,
‘Tis then I regret, I did not obey.
My disobedience, is not your will,
I won’t experience, blessings that thrill.
Staying in Your will, I won’t rouse Your wrath,
I must walk in the light, of that narrow path.
In Your will Father, I know I must be,
Or I won’t be with You, eternally.
Give me wisdom Father, to always choose right,
For I want to do, no wrong in Thy sight.

There is a Miracle, I know is true,
May I my friend, tell it to you?
Christ left the glory, and safety of Heav’n,
This GIFT from the Father, to us was giv’en!
Christ became a Man, one amazing morn,
God’s only begotten Son was born!
In a stable, with just cattle and sheep,
The mother and Babe, God safely did keep!
The stars up in Heaven, shown O so bright,
The angels of God, sang praises that night.
Mary pondered all these things in her heart,
As Baby Jesus’ life, on Earth did start.
Almighty God Himself, became a Man,
This was God the Father’s, salvation Plan.
God loves us so much, that He sent His Son,
When we believe in Christ, salvation’s begun.
He came to pay a debt, He did not owe,
To redeem us sinners, here on Earth below.
A sin debt, we could never, ever pay,
Thank You precious Saviour, You are the Way!

INCREASE OUR FAITH
Without faith, we cannot please our God,
We must BELIEVE, where ever we trod.
Faith is confidence He will fulfill,
ALL His promises, for it’s His will.
We must always TRUST Him, and His power,
He will come thru’ for us, at the right hour.
Sometimes we lose patience, and worry,
But God will come thru’ and grant victory.
We should not eat, the bread of sorrows,
Our precious faith, we should not bestrow.
Cast ALL your cares upon Him, ev’ry day,
For He shall grant grace, and light your way.
Trials and tribulations will abound,
Oft’ times thru’ Satan; Christians he’ll hound.
These bad times will do one of two things,
Turn you away from God; OR closer bring!
God will test our faith ev’ry now and then,
Will we be trusting, worthy, children?
God CANNOT lie; He’ll supply ALL our needs,
Will we lose faith? and not take heed?
We should not be troubled o’er many things,
Pray for more faith, and the peace it brings.
Lack of faith brings fear and sleeplessness,
Faith and trust in Him, brings blessedness.
O’ ye of little faith, why do you fear?
Would we hear these words from Christ so dear?
We must have faith that He’ll see us thru’,
We must increase our faith, both me and you.

INTO THY HANDS
Into Thy Hands, I place my worry,
This allows me to live peacefully.
Be anxious for nothing, You have said,
Trusting You Lord, removes my dread.
Into Thy Hands, my doubt I lay,
Faith instead Lord, I must display.
I must have faith, or I can’t please You,
Increase my faith Lord, each day anew.
Into Thy Hands, my sin I place,
I ask that You, forgive my disgrace.
Cast my sin in the depth of the sea,
Remember not, my iniquity.
Into Thy Hands, I put my pride,
I must completely cast it aside.
I must be humble, I must be meek,
If eternal life, I truly seek.
Into Thy Hands, I commit my soul,
My precious Lord, I give You control.
Use me Lord Jesus, to do Your work,
Keep me strong, that my duty I don’t shirk.

Is It True?
Is it true that Jesus, is the only Way,
To arrive at the gate of Heaven, one day?
Millions think, there are many other roads,
That lead to the safety, of Heaven’s abode.
Is it true that Jesus, can give eternal life,
And also assistance, to keep us from strife?
So many people, the Lord Jesus deny,
They refuse to believe, and on Him rely.
Is it true unbelievers, arouse God’s wrath,
Because they stay with Satan, on his broad path?
Multitudes think God is just, a God of love,
They think everyone goes, to Heaven above.
Is it true that salvation, can be lost,
And that falling from grace, is the ultimate cost?
Folks around the world, believe this heresy,
And millions will wind up, in hell’s agony.
The Truth is, Christ Jesus IS the ONLY Way,
To reach the gate of Heaven, one day.
The Truth is, eternal life is for ever,
And NOTHING, from the Lord Jesus can sever.
The Truth is, our God is love, and I agree,
BUT, God’s wrath can send you, to Hell’s agony.
The Truth is, just a “few” will go to Heaven,
For the majority, Hell will be given.
Once you are God’s child, and in His family,
One day you will experience, Heaven, pleasantry.
Once you are saved, you are saved for always,
God’s great grace will be with you, all of your days.

IS JESUS THE MESSIAH???
Is Jesus the ‘Messiah’, the Anointed One?
Can He be the ‘Christ’, God’s only begotten Son?
Isaac tells, that a virgin would bear a son,
History agrees, yet He, the world does shun!
Mica tells, He’d be born in tiny Bethlehem,
Wise men came from the east, for His star told them.
Joseph and Mary from Herod, to Egypt, did run,
Hosea tells, God would call from Egypt, His own Son.
‘Tis told, He’d be despis’d and rejected of men,
He’d have grief and sorrows, o’er and o’er again.
When He came, most couldn’t see, to them it was dim,
He came to His own, but they wouldn’t receive Him!
David tell us, He’d be betrayed by a ‘friend’,
One of the twelve, did hand Him over in the end.
Zechariah tells, He would be sold for a price,
Judas did just that, and then fled into the night.
Psalms tells, many would hate Him without a cause,
When He came, their hate was ardent, and without pause.
Jesus tells, if we hate Him, we hate Jehovah too,
This for some is hard to grasp, but surely is true.
Jacob told many years back, when Messiah would come,
Judah lost rule, aft’ Shiloh came, their foe was Rome.
So many prophecies, Messiah did fulfill,
Why are His people still of that stubborn will?
He’s there, for one and all; all Gentiles, and all Jews,
And He can save your soul from Hell, ‘Wonderful News’!
There’s just one plan of salvation; that’s God’s Son,
It’s the same worldwide; the same plan for ev’ry one!

It Could Have Been Worse
It could have been worse, you must consider,
As o’er your circumstance, you do ponder.
God may test us, with great severity,
To see where we’ll stand, both you and me.
When painful troubles, on us does arrive,
Our faith must be strong, or we’ll not survive.
The closeness of Jesus, is O’ so near,
When we stand firm with Him, we need not fear.
“It could have been worse; I cannot see how,”
These words you speak, as you wipe sweat from your brow.
But there’s been someone before, who’s felt your woe,
Consider this, as thru’ each day you go.
Worry and depression, these do you feel?
And agonizing pain, so very real?
Confusion in your mind, as you ask “Why?”
Many tears flow, as you continue to cry.
There’s someone worse off, if you’d look around,
Troubles to many people, do abound.
Our faith must be steadfast, we must trust the Lord,
Let’s always stay close to Him and His Word.
We know not what another person feels,
When they go thru’ their trouble, as they heal.
We must remember as we go thru’ each day,
When Christ is your Friend, He’s there all the way.

It Matters Not
As I walk with my Lord, Hand in hand,
I’ll follow Him and obey His command.
It matters not, just where He shall lead,
I’ll walk in faith, to Him I’ll heed.
Life’s narrow road, does get rough and steep,
If we walk in His Light, He will keep.
It matters not, the road blocks ahead,
As I walk in His Light, I’ll have no dread.
As I walk with my Lord, each new day,
I’ll walk in His footsteps, all the way.
It matters not to me, where we go,
My faith will lead me, as I follow.
At times I feel that I can’t go on,
But surging strength comes from God’s own Son.
It matters not, that I’m worn and weary,
Faith in Jesus, gives me victory.
As I walk with my Lord, I’m ne’er sad,
Great joy is within, that makes me glad.
It matters not, what others might say,
I’ll continue in faith, on Heav’n’s way.

IT MATTERS TO GOD
It matters to God what His children do,
He’s not indifferent to me or you.
Our weal or woe are of concern to God,
No matter where on this Earth we trod.
God knows our every grief and sorrow,
He is always near, now, and tomorrow.
Of your head, He knows the number of hairs,
Such a loving God, and One who cares.
It matters to God what His children say,
As we go on our Christian path each day.
We shouldn’t gossip, curse or tell lies,
And we shouldn’t any way, Christ deny!
God knows our every thought and deed,
To His children, He will always take heed.
He waits for us to come in prayer,
And He will answer you, for He does care!
It matters to God where His children go,
In this earthly life of joy or woe.
He wants for us to imitate His Son,
Take Christ with you as your day’s begun.
God shall supply our every need,
He knows our desires, He knows our greed.
We must trust Him completely, all our days,
For His love and care are with us always.

And it Shall Be So For Eternity.
God’s wondrous City and street, made of gold,
What a marvelous place, I shall behold.
The City’s wall, is a structure of beauty,
And it Shall Be So For Eternity.
No sun or moon, in this City so bright,
God and the Lamb, shall provide all the light.
It’s always day, no night in this City,
And it Shall Be So For Eternity.

A place where there will be no more sorrows.
No more death, crying, no more pain for me,
And it Shall Be So For Eternity.

To go to God’s House, of much greater worth.

It’s amazing, how God comes thru for me,
What e’er my problem, or calamity.
In a heartbeat, when I go in prayer,
At once, I feel His gracious Presence there!
It’s amazing, how good God is to me,
Wondrous blessings, He bestows abundantly.
The peace I have, way down deep in my heart,
Is a priceless treasure, just He can impart!
It’s amazing, just how much God loves me,
This awesome love that flows, ever so free.
He loves me so much, He sent His only Son,
To redeem my soul, and grant salvation!
It’s amazing, the grace He shows to me,
Grace I don’t deserve, yet given so free.
Compassion and forgiveness, comes my way,
Ever since I accepted, Christ that day!
It’s amazing, how God chose sinful me,
To be His child, for all eternity.
I’ll live in a mansion, that He did prepare,
And forever in Heav’n, His Home I’ll share!
Thank You Jesus!

IT’S NOT EASY
It’s not easy to apologize,
But this we must do, if we’re wise.
It’s not easy to forgive and forget,
But if we do not, we will regret.
It’s not easy to admit mistakes,
For our pride, we don’t want to forsake.
It’s not easy to think first, then act,
To control the tongue is hard; that’s fact!
It’s not easy for us to take advice,
And at times we will pay a great price.
It’s not easy to accept just reproof,
We bristle up, and become aloof.
It’s not easy to discern wrong from right,
Satan makes evil shams appear bright.
It’s not easy to run from temptation,
It’s been this way since the Creation.
It’s not easy, your conscience to obey,
Many things of beauty pull us away.
It’s not easy to have self control,
For this we should strive; it should be our goal.
It’s not easy to love when most hate,
Repay good for evil; it’s our fate.
We must please our Lord in all we do,
For we carry His Name, me and you.

(Jam.3;2-10; Mt.5:44-48; Ro.12:14;21)
It’s scary how easy it is, to say yes,
To bad things that the Father, will never bless.
Evil thoughts, words and deeds, we must remove fast,
All wrong things in our lives, must be quickly cast.
It’s scary that at times, we think evil things,
The Father’s great displeasure, is what it brings.
We all must teach ourselves, to think just good thoughts,
If blessings from the LORD God, to us are brought.
It’s scary that all too oft, wrong words we say,
Bitter shame for us, the Father will display.
Blasphemy, cursing, gossip, lies, we must stop,
Or we’re headed for the bottom, not the top.
It’s scary how easy, wrong deeds can be done,
To please the Father, wicked deeds we must shun.
Hate must be cast out, and instead we must love,
If we desire God’s awesome blessings, from above.
It’s scary to think, about eternity,
Without Christ, you are the Father’s enemy.
But with Christ, you shall see Heavens’ grand shore,
Where we’ll live with our Saviour, forever more.

It’s useless to go to God in prayer,
If you don’t confess your sins while there.
Repent and confess; His favor you’ll win,
God cannot stand to look on any sin!
It’s useless to go to God for guidance,
If you won’t listen, and keep your same stance.
When you ask Him to guide your path each day,
Take heed to the voice on your heart He lays.
It’s useless to ask Him to forgive sin,
If forgiveness of others you can’t win.
If you can’t forgive; God won’t forgive you,
So hard to achieve; but this we must do!
It’s useless to say we love when we hate,
God does know, and we won’t pass thru’ the gate.
Love must first be found deep down inside,
Love must abound; or He won’t abide!
It’s useless to ask, if you have any doubt,
For it won’t be giv’n, you’ll do without!
We must have faith, if we want to receive,
Faith pleases God, He loves when we believe.
It’s useless to go to God in prayer,
If you don’t know Jesus, if you don’t care.
We must worship and love Almighty God,
Or He’ll turn His back the wide world abroad.

IT’S YOUR DECISION . . . April 1997 Message
There’s a narrow path, rugged and steep,
And it goes down to canyons so deep.
This narrow road is just one of two,
In this life’s decisions, for me and you.
The other road is so smooth and broad,
Easier to travel; but away from God.
This life on Earth is where we decide;
Where in eternity, we will abide.
You’re at the junction; what will you do?
Just one can decide; and that is you.
Will you choose the narrow, rugged road?
Or the wide one, that leads to Hell’s abode?
Your soul lives forever; God does tell,
The decision is yours; where you’ll dwell.
The narrow path leads to Heaven’s gate,
And the broad road leads to Hell’s dark fate.
