AS THE WIND
Colorful leaves it twirls in the air,
They flutter about, both here and there.
In any direction, it can blow,
But we can’t see it come, neither go!
It leans heavily on grass and trees,
Movement from it, is all that we see!
Great pow’r it has, making humans fear,
It roars in the storms, as it comes near!
As the wind, is the Spirit of God,
Present everywhere, this world abroad.
We can never detour, nor control,
When the Holy Spirit has a goal!
His works, as the wind, we can’t understand,
And of both, God has complete command!
God’s Spirit can touch the sinful soul,
Making the most wicked person whole!
Christ’s Spirit can touch your heart today,
Be receptive to Him, don’t turn away!
God’s Spirit, as the wind, is wondrous,
And we, thru’ Him, are victorious!

Scripture verses for above poem:
(Jn,3:1-8; 6:63; Rom.8:9,14; 1 Jn.2:27; 1 Jn.3:24; 1 Jn.4:13; Acts 2:38)
A STILL SMALL VOICE
A still, small Voice warns me when I sin,
Helps me resist, when trouble begins.
Tho’ Satan tempts with troubles galore,
A still, small Voice, my hopes do restore!
A still, small Voice tells which roads to take,
When I obey, I make no mistake.
In life’s hard journey, I need a Guide,
This Voice advises, with Christ to abide!
A still, small Voice helps me run my race,
And tells me one day I’ll see His Face!
It tells me that I should persevere,
For my wondrous Lord is always near!
A still, small Voice impresses upon me,
Just thru’ Christ can I have victory.
For the Blood of Jesus justifies,
And that still, small Voice never lies!
A still, small Voice tells me I’m Heav’n bound,
This Voice to me, is the sweetest sound!
With Jesus, I’ll spend eternity,
And this will be bliss and ecstasy!

IS THE VINE
We are mere
branches, Christ is the ‘Vine’,
He is the One who truly does shine.
We’ll bear no fruit, lest in Him we
We must let Him our heart to guide.
We can do nothing
without our Lord,
‘Tis stated o’er and o’er
in His Word!
We can bear not one fruit on our own,
All we can do is stumble and groan.
We must abide in the ‘Vine’ alway,
He’ll then supply our needs, night and day!
But if from that ‘Vine’ so true, we break off,
That crafty old devil will laugh and scoff.

Scripture for above poem: (Jn.15)
came into my heart; something chang’d,
Ev’ry detail of my life, was re-arrang’d.
Before, there was turmoil, hatred and sadness,

FRUITS OF THE SPIRIT
Lord, how I thank you, as this morn I wake,
For all your blessings, for granted I take.
They’re all invisible, but all so real,
For each one I thank you, as I do kneel.
Love, joy and peace, can come only from you,
Without Christ in my heart, what would I do?
Patience, gentleness, and goodness in me,
By your Spirit, that never used to be!
Faith that started all these wonders my way,
As a tiny seed; did bring a new day.
Humility and self control; fruits so good,
Let all these o’er flow me, like a great flood.

Scripture verses for above poem: (Gal.5:22-23)
FRUITS OF THE SPIRIT
Love is an attribute that, we need,
If to God’s Word, we must pay heed.
Joy is something, way deep down inside,
When we allow His Spirit to guide.
Peace is truly a tremendous thing,
You know you’re God’s friend, such a blessing.
Without Christ in your heart, peace will flee,
‘Tis so clear, you are God’s enemy.
Patience is something we should possess,
Our anger and temper, we should suppress.
As God’s children, we must always be kind,
Kindness should be deep-set in our mind.
Goodness is a trait, reaching out to aid,
Helping those who are lonely or afraid.
Faith is trusting God, with no doubt at all,
Knowing He’ll answer, ev’ry time you call.
Gentleness is such a wondrous trait,
Christ’s characteristic, e’er so great.
If we let the Spirit, work within,
He will assist, and keep us from sin.
Our lives and ourselves, we must control,
If we are to have a victorious soul.
The Spirit will help us, day by day,
Leading, guiding and showing the right way.
God gives His Holy Spirit to assist,
We must never quench Him, nor resist.
Precious fruits in us, He will produce,
Wondrous traits of Christ, He will induce.

FRUITS OF THE SPIRIT
Gal 5:22-23 But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, 23 Meekness, temperance: against such there is no law. (KJV)
The fruits of the Spirit, our awesome God describe,
These wondrous blessings, for us He does prescribe.
The fruits of the Spirit, are indeed a blessing,
Our awesome God gives to His children, such grand things!
The love of God, is beyond comprehension,
Sending His Son, to save us, from perdition.
Since God loves us so, we must love others too,
For then one sweet day, we shall see Heaven’s view.
Joy is something, so much more than happiness,
In His presence is the fullness of joy, and gladness.
Although we see Him not, yet we still do believe,
And by believing, joy unspeakable, we receive.
When we become God’s children, Jesus gives us peace,
From worry, strife and Satan’s snares, we have release.
Our heart is no longer troubled, and we have no fear,
For the Presence of our awesome Saviour, is near.
If we hope for Heaven, then we patiently wait,
And one sweet day, we shall walk thru’ the pearly gate.
If we patiently endure, His Promise we will obtain,
Our inheritance in Heaven, one day we shall gain.
He gathers the lambs, carries them so tenderly,
Those in His flock, He leads and guides very gently.
God’s wisdom is full of mercy, gentle and pure,
And the pasture of His flock, is safe and secure.
Great is His goodness, for all those who fear Him,
He lights the pathway, so it is never dim.
His goodness and mercy shall follow me, all my days,
And one day I shall see, Heaven’s glorious display.
It is the will of God, that we have faith and believe,
We must believe what He says, and His Son receive.
Without faith, it is impossible to please God,
We must trust Him, as the narrow road we trod.
MEEKNESS, BEING HUMBLE
The meek shall live and be satisfied, ev’ry day,
The meek He will guide, and these will He teach His way.
These shall inherit the earth, and in peace delight,
For they humble themselves, before His great light.
TEMPERANCE, SELF CONTROL
Let us be swift to hear, slow to speak and slow to wrath,
As we control our self, and stay on the narrow path.
Do not let sin reign within you, or its lusts obey,
Jesus is there to help you, each and ev’ry day.
The fruits of the Spirit, are in His Hands alone,
He produces them, and in us they are grown.
To quench the Holy Spirit, is wrong indeed,
Always allow Him to work, and to Him, pay heed!

Fruits of the Spirit
Lord let Your Spirit, increase love in me,
As I walk onward, to eternity.
Increase joy within me, with each new day,
As I walk with You, on the narrow way!
Thank You for the peace, that You did increase,
How I thank You, for the fruit of your peace!
When I submit to You, Satan will flee,
What an amazing feeling, within me!
Increase my patience Lord, which I do need,
Grant me stamina, that I will pay heed.
I must never, my patience ever lose,
Spiritual fruits, I should treasure and use!
Being gentle and good, are traits of God,
Don’t let Satan deceive you, with his fraud.
Being wild and wicked, is his way to go,
But that will just get you, to Hell below!
Increase my faith, some before have well said,
Living without faith, is a state of dread.
But faith in the Lord, gives such wondrous peace,
And from the devil, such great release!
Meekness, is a tremendous quality,
The Lord Jesus had, great humility.
We all should be wise, and consider this,
For pride and arrogance, lead you amiss!
Last, but surely not least, is self-control,
Flying off the handle, will take its toll.
Lord, let Your Spirit, have pow’r o’er my will,
And deep within me, temperance instill!

As we press on to eternity.
Accept or reject them; we can choose,
God’s favor is there, to win or lose.
The first Gift God gives, is Christ, His Son,
For Christ is, eternal salvation.
Christ will open to us Heav’n’s door,
Where a reserv’d mansion, waits in store.
This Gift God gives; life eternally,
God offers to all, both you and me.
The choice, God leaves completely to us,
There is no worldly gift, so precious!
Forgiveness too, is an awesome gift,
The burden of sin, I feel God lift!
An amazing God, with gifts so rare,
He gives us these gifts, because He cares!
God gives us His Spirit, who abides,
And in Him, we can always confide.
“Tis a Gift of God Himself, within,
Helping us to live a life without sin.
Remarkable peace deep in my heart,
A gift God gives, that will not depart.
Wondrous peace, such a comfort to me,
A grand feeling of serenity.
Great joy seems to overflow my soul,
Ev’n great sorrow cannot take it’s toll.
This gift comes only from God alone,
And ‘tis thru’ His love that it is known.
God’s gifts so precious, God’s gifts so free,
But God leaves the choice up to you and me.
ALL God’s gifts start with Gift Number One,
We must accept Christ, God’s well belov’d Son!

For He is within us; a home He holds so dear!

For His Holy Spirit, abides graciously in you!

Remember that you really are -- God’s Sanctuary!
Oh! the joy that His wondrous Presence gives,

HOLY SPIRIT’S JOB, THE
God’s Spirit shall not always strive with man,
But today it seems God’s forgotten this plan.
But I’m here to tell you, God’s in control,
Of all the world, including your soul!
God grew impatient back in Noah’s day,
With mankind’s unending wicked display.
God set a time limit; hoping they’d change,
They would not listen, from God were estranged.
Noah and his family, secure in the ark,
Were the only ones safe; for God they did hark.
God’s Spirit did strive with the lost back then,
But they rejected Him, o’er and o’er again!
The day finally came, that God shut the door,
His patience had ended; He could take no more.
Ev’ry soul was destroyed, the world wide,
All except those in the ark; all safe inside!
God will never condemn to Hell, any soul,
Until His Spirit has fulfilled His roll.
Striving, convicting, wooing each single one,
Trying gently, but firmly, that heart to be won!
God’s patience will one day run out for you,
His Spirit will leave; His rejection through!
As long as you feel that tugging at your heart,
It’s not too late for you, from sin to depart!
Noah’s ark of old, represents Jesus today,
Are you like the many, God destroyed that day?
You can be like Noah; all secure inside,
Just believe God; and let Christ be your guide!

YOUR SPIRIT GUIDE

right paths, let your Spirit guide,

I need God’s armor, full and complete,
For with my strength alone, I can’t
Let your Spirit
guide on roads rough and steep,
Don’t let me fall into canyons so deep.
Keep this fragile ‘sheep’ from
Let your Spirit guide, or I’ll surely
Let your Spirit
show me right paths to take,
Without His guidance, I’ll make vast
I want loving friendship, Lord, with you,
Just with your Spirit, can I this pursue.
You have granted eternal life in Heav’n,
This ‘gift’ tops the list of many you’ve giv’n.
You’ve giv’n your Spirit to abide with me,
To guide and comfort for eternity.

LUKE 16:23 . . . July 2003 Message
Luke16:23 And in Hell he lift up his eyes, being in torments, and seeth
Abraham afar off, and Lazarus in his bosom. [KJV]
Luke’s Gospel; sixteen, verse twenty three,
These words say so much, to you and me.
So few words, yet God’s children they bless,
Yet too, we see, the world’s wickedness.
These words show, there are two roads ahead,
One leads to bliss and comfort; one to dread.
You are on one of those roads today,
One leads to Glory Land; one Hell’s way.
The words tell us, we’ll live eternally,
In Heaven, OR in Hell, verily.
When we leave Earth, we’ll go anoth’r place,
Hell’s torment, or the Light of God’s Face!
The words reveal, you’ll have mem’ries there,
Hell will be torment; beyond compare.
You’ll wish you could live life o’er again,
But there’s no such luck; you are condemn’d.
The words say those in Hell; see Heav’n far off,
But they refused His ‘Gift’, God they did scoff!
There’s no turning back; once you are there,
You rejected Jesus; you did not care!
You’ll be in torment, for ever more,
Without Christ, you’ll not live on Heav’n’s shore.
No mercy; just torment, and agony,
For you cast off God’s grace, eternally!
If you are reading these words today,
It’s still not too late, God to obey.
Accept His ONE Plan, to save your soul,
Jesus will grant Heaven, as your goal!

WALKING WITH GOD
Walking with God, one step at a time,
Keeps us out of this world’s filth and grime.
We must speak truth; no sin on our lips,
Only His Holy Spirit equips.
Walking with God, we must always trust,
Also to obey; this is a must.
Believe what He states, for He does care,
He’ll watch out for you, no matter where.
Enoch, Noah, and Josiah too,
Walked with God; just to name a few.
Each one of us, need to be like these,
We don’t want to be God’s enemies.
Fear the Lord! be afraid ‘fore His Name,
Love and revere Him, each day the same.
Walking with God is divine fellowship,
Daily, consistent; a constant trip.
Walking with God, don’t wander away,
No matter what, with Him, you should stay.
Always with Him, in love, do abide,
He’s there to lead, direct, and to guide.
Thru’ long tedious days, you feel alone,
You stumble and fall, and how you do groan.
Why did He leave? when you need Him so?
YOU left! NOT HE! He wants you to know.
He will never leave, never forsake,
This great promise, He will not retake.
Walking with God, He’ll stay by your side,
The choice is yours; wander, or abide!
