Welcome to our web site

Poems about Me

The poems that follow are poems of what really happened to me, or that I consider poems about me.

A TOTAL DISASTER

A total disaster, weak and worn,
Is what I’d be, had not Christ been born.
Satan would keep me, so deep in sin,
Without Christ Jesus, I could not win.

A total disaster, filled with hate,
There’d be no way, I’d reach Heaven’s Gate.
I’d be headed, for Hell’s agony,
Without Christ Jesus, no victory.

A total disaster, reeking with pride,
Walking the broad road, with rapid strides.
Satan would keep me, stirring God’s wrath,
Without Christ, I’d not find the narrow path.

A total disaster, lusting for gold,
Is what I’d be, if not in Christ’s fold.
Lost in the wilderness, sure to fall,
Without Christ, I’d be nothing at all.

A total disaster, on the wrong road,
There’s no way I’d reach, Heaven’s abode.
The devil keeps pulling, the wrong way,
Without Christ Jesus, I’m Satan’s prey.

Dear Lord Jesus, if I walk with Thee,
A total disaster, I’ll not be.
Trusting Christ Jesus, means victory,
Living in Heaven, eternally!

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)  Rev. 20:15 And whosoever was not found written in the book of life was cast into the lake of fire. (KJV)  Only JESUS can put your name in the Book of Life!

A FRIEND IN DEED

A Friend in deed, is what Christ is to me,
Always there to help, and always lovingly!
In times of trouble, He always comes thru’,
At any hour, His friendship rings so true!

I’m Jesus’ friend; and I’m always in need,
And when trouble looms, my pray’r He will heed.
His great comfort is only a pray’r away,
For He will answer, any time of the day.

This Friend is what my soul needs, all the time,
And that’s what Christ is, with His love so fine!
He will never forsake; nor will He leave,
He’s there all the time; my soul need not grieve!

The love of earthly friends, quickly flies away,
Not like the love of Christ, that’s here to stay.
The warmth and cheer of friends, we fondly treasure,
Let us down at times; a loss we can’t measure.

Jesus is a Friend, not in word, but in deed,
And all my spiritual hunger, He does feed.
I’m glad He’s not here today, gone tomorrow,
But a true Friend, in all my joy or sorrow.

A TREASURE . . . GOD’S WORD IS

God’s Word is a treasure; each Promise a pearl,
The more that you study, the more He unfurls.
A spiritual gold mine, for one and for all,
Rich and poor alike, the big and the small.

I am an heir with all those who fear Thy Name,
This is so much better than earthly fame.
Thy testimonies always rejoice my heart,
A wonderful way, each new day to start.

God’s Holy Word, is a Treasure to me,
For it has led me to life eternally!
It turned me from darkness to glorious light,
All my horrid sins are now gone from His sight.

Of the heav’nly inheritance, I will partake,
For Christ Jesus, my Saviour; I did make.
Jesus is there, my “mansion” to prepare,
Reserved in my name, for He truly cares.

My treasures are where, no one can steal,
But the world considers them, to have no appeal.
I count all to be lost, except Christ my Lord,
My Utmost Treasure, whom I found in God’s Word.

What is your greatest treasure this day?
If it’s a worldly thing; it’s not here to stay!
If it’s God’s Word, and His precious Son,
Eternal blessings for you have just begun!

A Whisper in the Wind

A whisper in the wind, is Your Voice to me,
As You kindly guide me, to eternity.
Will I listen, to Your ever so soft words?
Or will I not heed, Your guidance, dear Lord?

A whisper in the wind, guides me to right paths,
Also leading me, away from Your wrath.
Softly and lovingly, You speak to me,
Out of the wind, blowing ever so free.

Your Voice in the calm wind, ever so soft talks,
Gently encouraging, the right way to walk.
Telling me to walk, with the Lord in His light,
Telling me to stay clear, of those of the night.

Whispering such gentle words, I need to hear,
Telling me of Your love, and that I need not fear.
Such wondrous love, I simply can’t comprehend,
It’s simply amazing, that You call me “friend.

A whisper in the wind, is Your Voice to me,
As You guide me here, then receive me to glory.
I am so grateful, and will thank You always,
I’ll praise You now and forever, all my days.

No need for an earthquake, a whisper will do,
As the wind whooshes by, I’ll listen to You.
I want to be, who You want me to be,
Help me as I walk, to eternity.

ALL FOR THE LIKES OF ME . . . June 1999 Message & Feb.2013 Message

You left Heaven’s most splendid glory,
And came to Earth, for the likes of me.
You gave up comfort, for grief and pain,
That sinful me, might have eternal gain.

You left the beauty of Heaven above,
And came to man’s evil, all in love.
Tremendous sorrow and agony,
You did go thru’, for the likes of me.

You left Heaven, as great God and King,
And came to Earth, with simply nothing.
You became a humble Servant here,
For the likes of me, that I might not fear.

You left all of the Heavenly hosts,
Came to the sin, of the earthly coasts.
You left the praise and glory above,
And came down to the likes of me, in love.

You left it all; and here had no home,
Left riches; and in poverty, did roam.
Was not accepted, or recognized,
For the likes of me; ‘tis hard to surmise.

Wonderful Jesus, Saviour and Lord,
Died on the Cross, as told in your Word.
All done in great love, given so free,
To take sin away, from the likes of me.

AS I LOOK BACK . . . about me

As I look back, when I was very small,
Almost before, I could even recall.
I could feel His Presence, ever so near,
There was no need for me, ever to fear.

I did not know this, at that very time,
I was just a child, and all seemed fine.
I didn’t know then, that I needed God,
So on my small, little path, I did trod.

When I now look back, on my early days,
I can see Him working, in many ways.
He’d chosen me, ‘fore He’d made the Earth,
Not for what I’d done, or how much my worth.

When one would curse Jews, I knew it was wrong,
Even at that young age, God made me strong.
He always watched, as I spent my time,
I know all that now, and O’ it was fine!

‘Twas riding my sled, one cold winter day,
He was there as always, and was my stay.
I went in a well; and ‘fore I could shout,
He had someone there, and she pulled me out.

He’d chosen me, before He’d made a thing,
This marvelous mystery, makes me sing.
He calls so many, but chooses so few,
‘Cause they just won’t do, what He wants them to.

Do you know just what, He wants you to do?
If you don’t know Christ; He’s waiting for you.
Just believe what He says, trust Him today,
Jesus will save you; and be with you always!

This is true about me going head first into that well. My aunt just happened to walk by at that very moment and saw what happened. It was one of those wells with the big pipe or culvert. My sled must have hit that pipe and stopped . . . I did not stop, I went into the well. God was guarding me even way back then! His angels have kept me from serious injury and trouble all my life, just as He did that day. I know for a fact that God had my aunt come by there at that very moment. There is absolutely no doubt whatsoever!

AS I REMINISCE . . . about me

As I reminisce o’er my childhood years,
I recall happiness, and few tears.
Far from cities, in the country side,
Up in the hills, I took all in stride.

Kerosene lamps, were our light at night,
As for me, it seemed quite all right.
A homey coal stove, on which to cook,
Cold evenings I’d curl close, with a book.

Inside the house, no running water,
We did not have, electric power.
No air conditioner, that’s for sure,
Yet thru’ all of this, we did endure.

We had just four large rooms, but no bath,
When nature called, we’d follow the path.
The outhouse stood, not too far away,
Sears catalog, I’d look thru’ each day.

I’d bathe in an old, galvanized tub,
Using home-made lye soap, as I’d rub.
Summer’s sun would heat, the water nice,
In winter the coal stove, did suffice.

I loved these times, in days gone by,
This generation, would simply die.
A tremendous change, ‘tween then and now,
I would go back, if I could somehow.

Happiness for most, seems to fly away,
They always want more, on each giv’n day.
We should be content, with what we get,
And we should learn, to not ever fret.

By: Connie Kramer for ‘Mother’ Aug.20, 1997 #30-A
As you can guess, I am up in years, to remember all these things.
I dearly loved my life on the farm in the Pennsylvania hills in those old days.

BEFORE AND AFTER . . . about me
 
Before I knew Jesus, I was lost,
I ne’er, even once, counted the cost!
Life without Him, I sure did not care,
Did all wrong things, and ne’er a prayer!

Anger, bitterness, cursing and lies,
Hatred and wickedness; I can’t deny!
Stubborn, greedy, selfish thru’ and thru’,
Rebellion, envy, SIN,; is this you?

I finally gave in to my Lord,
And starting searching His precious Word.
A change took place in the way I live,
That ‘old’ me left! a new me He did give!

Then, I had remorse, for what I’d been,
Living all those wasted years in sin.
Turning my back on Christ’s wondrous love,
Ne’er thinking of Hell, or Heav’n above.

I thank God for His patience with me,
I’m no longer ‘lost’, but safe and free!
Now I know Jesus as Saviour and Lord,
Rejection is gone; now, He’s adored!

I still do some of those awful things,
Now, I repent, and forgiveness He brings!
Such a caring Saviour; loving and true,
He’s waiting, right now, to hear from you!

Changed

As I consider, my life gone by,
Christ Jesus, the King, I did deny.
Each day I continued, in wickedness,
Not once, did I e’er, Jesus confess.

But one sweet day, my Saviour found me,
Giving me, o’er my sin, victory!
Eyes that could not see, were open’d wide,
And He gave me His Spirit, to abide.

Shouting His praises, I now want to do,
I have an awesome feeling, thru’ and thru’.
I want ev’ry one, to feel this way,
Christ is how, we should start and end each day.

Ears that were stopped, now hear so well,
Christ spoke to me: “I’ll keep you from Hell.”
In great hope, I look forward to Heav’n,
And the mansion, that to me will be giv’n.

I am changed, to the new, from the old,
And one day I’ll walk, on that street of gold!
Thank You Lord! for all You have done for me,
I’ll be grateful, for eternity!

“Golden Rule”
Matthew 7:12 Therefore all things whatsoever ye would that men should do to you, do ye even so to them: for this is the law and the prophets. (KJV)

Constant Need, The 
Isaiah 58:11 And the LORD shall guide thee continually, and satisfy thy soul in drought, and make fat thy bones: and thou shalt be like a watered garden, and like a spring of water, whose waters fail not. (KJV)

My soul does not cease, of the constant need,
To honor and praise You, and give You heed.
I feel as Isaiah, no words can provide,
How my heart feels, as in You I abide.

Like a watered garden, to us You tend,
On Your goodness, we can always depend.
Like a spring of water, You don’t deny,
Your Fountain of kindness, will not run dry,

So many things You do, run thru’ my mind,
Blessings You bestow, because You are kind.
Abundant blessings, You bestow each day,
Leading and guiding, each step of the way.

 I thank You, for Your watch care over me,
Day or night, You watch continually.
I thank You for the angels, who stand guard, 
Who keep away all danger, from me barred.

I thank You, for eternal salvation,
Giv’n to me, by Your dearly beloved Son.
Redeemed, from the eternal lake of fire,
Promised Heav’n instead, that I would acquire.

Your lovingkindness, and amazing grace,
Make me know one day, I’ll meet You Face to face.
So I’ll keep off’ring, the sacrifice of praise,
My heart-felt gratitude, to You I’ll raise.

So many reasons, for the constant need,
That gratitude and honor, from me must proceed.
I must praise and thank, the dear LORD above,
For all the goodness, that comes from His love.

I was doing a commentary on the Book of Isaiah when this poem came. Receiving a poem in the middle of my work does not happen too often, but when it does, it is a sign to include it in what I am working on. I hope you see what the goodness, faithfulness, love and mercy of the LORD means to me. The need to thank and praise Him is constantly with me. https://godcannotlie.org/book_of_isaiah_ch.58.htm

DOTTIE

I can still see her wobbling down the hall,
Arthritis so bad, she finally did fall.
Many times because of the pain she’d cry,
She couldn’t understand, and would ask: “Why?”

To Bible class, many years she came,
Her seat was always, exactly the same.
When she wasn’t there, it didn’t seem right,
Her presence in that chair made things bright.

One day they said: “Dottie passed away,”
I’m sure my grief I must have display’d.
The mind of a child, dear Dottie had,
But her passing, has left my heart sad.

Dottie no longer wobbles down the hall,
She stands on painless legs, straight and tall!
There’s no need of a walker or wheel chair,
The burden of pain she no longer bears.

Dottie is in the Presence, of her Lord,
The bliss of Heav’n is her reward.
“O how I love Jesus” I can hear her sing,
Dottie is in Heav’n, with life e’er lasting.

For over 20 years, I was privileged to teach the Word of God to the elderly in nursing homes. My health put a stop [SCDS] to it, or I would still be there. Dottie would go up and down the halls singing “O how I love Jesus.” I firmly believe, even with Dottie’s mental retardation, she was “born again” and is now in Heaven with Her Lord. It was a privilege to have known this wonderful person.

Elijah’s Lessons

Without You, I’m like a brook that is dry,
This I must admit, and never deny.
Lord, I can’t do anything on my own,
But with You, Lord, Your plan will be shown.

An empty flour barrel, that is me,
Without Your pow’r, I have no victory.
This I must not deny, but admit,
To You, Lord, I must completely submit.

I’m like an empty oil jug, without You,
This I must admit, because it’s true.
Without You Lord, I can’t do anything,
Submitting to You, Lord, brings great blessings.

I’m like a dead body, with no life at all,
Just You can give life, on You I should call.
But I’m so much alive, when You do abide,
I couldn’t face life, if You didn’t reside.

A brook with no water, Elijah did face,
But by faith he trusted, God’s amazing grace.
He too saw the barrel that always had flour,
Elijah trusted God, ev’ry single hour.

Elijah saw too, that the oil did stay,
All thru’ the drought, day after day.
And after earnest pray’r, from a heart sincere,
Breath of life to the boy, did re-appear.

Great lessons from God, Elijah did learn,
But wisdom from God, most people do spurn.
We must admit we’re nothing, cast pride away,
Submitting to God, makes a better day!

1 Kings 17:1-24
I have learned SO much from the Word of God. And I will readily admit that I am nothing without His help and guidance, and that I can do nothing without His Spirit.

FAR FROM PERFECT

I’m far from perfect Lord, this I know,
I do struggle, as You I follow.
I want to do right, but wrong I choose,
Tempted am I, and I get confused.

Instead of choosing good, I choose wrong,
My flesh is weak, I wish I were strong.
I’m far from perfect Lord, You I need,
It seems to Satan, I always pay heed.

It’s two steps forward, and one step back,
I can’t seem to keep, my mind on track.
You dear Lord, I want to imitate,
But falling far short, seems to be my fate.

Good things I want to do, I don’t do,
I can’t seem, to concentrate on You.
Temptations abound, where e’er I go,
I want to do right, but don’t do so.

To be perfect as You, this I seek,
But I fall short, for I am weak.
Help me Lord, You I don’t want to shame,
Help me to bring glory, to Your Name.

Lord, perfection is so far from me,
I so look forward to eternity,
For then I’ll have a body, just like You,
And it will be perfect and sinless too.

FIRMLY I’LL STAND

Firmly I’ll stand by my Saviour’s Side,
Loving, serving, and with Him abide.
But only thru’ His amazing pow’r,
For without Him near, I’d fear and cow’r.

By His pierced Side, I’ll firmly stand,
Gathering strength from His nail scarr’d Hand.
For when I feel weak, and want to quit,
He’s always there to bolster my spirit.

Firmly I’ll stand by Him, all the way,
Thru’ the darkest night or brightest day.
Tho’ my road at times gets rough and steep,
By His awesome pow’r, He does keep.

Firmly I’ll stand on His promises,
For His love, peace and joy I possess.
And one day soon I’ll live with Him in Heav’n,
For He cannot lie; His Word He’s giv’n.

I can stand firmly, only by His grace,
On my own, I’d never see His Face.
Praise be to Jesus, precious and true,
Just He can grant Heav’n, to me and you.

FOR ME! . . . Apr.2007 Message

Under a dark, looming Eastern sky,
A humble Man, stumbled forth to die.
In the midst of a crowd, shouting with glee,
This Man went forth, to die for me!

A crown of thorns pierced His precious Head,
His Blood reveal’d ev’ry step He tread.
He bore that cross in pure agony,
As this Man went forth, to die for me!

They drove nails into His Hands and Feet,
After many hours that they scourged and beat.
Naked He hung in complete humility,
This Man consented to die for me!

On that awful cross, my sins He did bear,
A burden He asked no one to share!
All this He did out of love so free,
This awesome Man --- He died for me!

Because of this Man; great blessings are mine,
Peace, joy, comfort, grace, and strength divine!
But, best of all, life eternally,
For Christ Jesus gave His Life for me!

For me! For me! this awesome Man died!
For me! For me! He was crucified!
For me! His death was pure victory!
For it gives me Heaven eternally!

What about you?
By: His servant, Connie Kramer Feb.6, 2000 # 636

FRUITS OF THE SPIRIT . . . I need them all

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.

(Gal.5:22-23)
When the Lord called me to teach His Word, I was certain that He had made a big mistake. I was but a new born babe in Christ, in a church of wonderful people who had been weaned on the Bible, and I was supposed to ‘teach’ these people?  That was over 45 years ago, and I am grateful that I obeyed the Lord and did as He wanted, for I have been blessed and I have brought blessings to many in the prisons, with Bible Study booklets and the poems He has given me. Dear one, IF the Lord calls you to do something, He shall equip you in every way to do it! I am proof of this fact! And it is the Holy Spirit working in and through you that gets the job done. Do NOT quench Him! Let Him do His work!

God Speaks To Me . . . in so many ways

God talks to me ev’ry single hour,
Telling me of His great and mighty pow’r.
He speaks to me, so right roads I may take,
He tells me which decisions to make.

He speaks to me gently at mid-day,
Letting me know of His excellent ways.
He speaks to me in the sunset’s beauty,
Showing me of His awesome glory.

At mid-night my great God talks to me,
My heart listens, as He speaks quietly.
‘Tis then He gives me wisdom and words,
To equip me in my job for my Lord.

I dearly love those confidential talks,
For ‘tis then He shows me how I should walk.
He speaks to me in such a still small tone,
Assuring me I am never alone.

When my God speaks, I must be aware,
For He keeps me in His constant care.
I must never, ever too busy be,
To hear His words of serenity.

We must always listen when God speaks,
And our posture must be humble and meek.
We must be eager and willing to learn,
And for those talks, we truly must yearn.

By: His servant, Connie Kramer June 27, 1999 # 538
I have had some people ask, “How does God speak to us?” Simple. He always speaks to us through His Word, IF we are wise enough to open the ears of  our hearts and listen!
But He also speaks to His TRUE children, by the Holy Spirit who dwells within us, urging us to do or not to do a certain thing. He is at our beck and call 24/7 forever ((Jn.14:16).

GOING HOME . . . to Heaven

My going Home, could be very near,
Praise be to Jesus, I have no fear.
All the pearly gates, are open’d wide,
What joy I’ll have, when I go inside!

A joint heir of Christ, that’s lowly me,
That’s why I know, Heav’n’s beauty I’ll see!
Absent from the body, present with the Lord,
What a Treasure, is God’s Holy Word!

One day I’ll walk, on that street of gold,
And the brilliance of Heav’n, I’ll behold!
The city is pure gold, like clear glass,
And to this grand place, I have a pass!

Magnificent beauty, everywhere!
I have a place reserv’d for me, there!
New Jerusalem, that is this place,
Where one day I’ll see, my Saviour’s Face!

Dazzling jewels, make up the foundation,
Of this wondrous Home, of God’s own Son.
The sun or moon, the city has no need,
Christ’s awesome glory, is Light indeed!

The water of life, from God’s Throne proceeds,
Tis all the refreshment, we’ll ever need!
Beside that river, the tree of life too,
Bringing food and health, to me and you!

No more curse there, and no more dark night,
No more temptations, of Satan to fight!
No more death, no sorrow, no more pain,
Being a child of God, brings great gain!

God shall wipe all tears, from their eyes away,
This shall be, a grand and glorious day!
Thank You Jesus, for all You’ve done for me,
And thank You, for life eternally!

HE CHANGED ME . . . Oct.2001 Message

If you are willing, God can change you,
Into the real you; someone so true.
‘Fore I knew Jesus, life was all sin,
It was always ‘me, me,’ never Him!

I finally did listen to my heart,
That small still voice, that wouldn’t depart.
What a change took place in my lifestyle,
Christ did love me; was there all the while.

I finally did submit to God,
He was patient, as wrong roads I trod.
I yielded to Him, and tried to obey,
I’m not perfect, but He is my Stay.

To my Lord, my life I did commit,
I trust completely His dear Spirit.
I’m no longer the old sinful me,
For my dear Jesus did set me free.

I trust my Saviour to make me right,
My righteousness is dark as the night.
Thanks be to Jesus, who paid my debt,
Without Him, I’d be in Satan’s net.

Jesus took away sin’s penalty,
Remov’d God’s wrath, for eternity.
I truly do thank Him, and praise His Name,
He really changed me; took all my shame.

Now that I, am in God’s family,
I want to love and obey, closely.
I can ne’er do near enough to repay,
All He has done, the rest of my days.

I was born into a heathen family. I never heard a prayer, never heard ‘I love you’, although I felt in my heart mom loved me. I was the only one who ever went to church. When I now consider those days, I know without a doubt that God had a plan for me. There were several times when I know that God’s angels literally saved me from death. Why else would I be here today, if He did not have a purpose for my life?

HE REACHED DOWN

He reached down in love, and lifted me,
Into a life of true victory.
Out of a life in the heathen world,
Gave eternal life as my reward.

He reached down, as at His cross I knelt,
Such awesome peace, is what I felt.
I could feel Him, come into my heart,
As He promis’d me, He would not depart!

He reached down to one, as sinful as me,
And life became one of serenity.
All the sins I had done, now were gone,
Forgiv’n, for now ‘twas a brand new dawn.

When He reached down, my whole life changed,
My attitudes and actions, He rearranged.
It seemed as though love, flooded my soul,
When I gave Him control, He gave me new goals.

I’m so glad that He, reached down in love,
For He made me a child, of God above.
He died for me, the supreme price He paid,
On that horrid cross, His own life He laid.

Today He is reaching down to you,
Will you accept, His loyal love so true?
He wants you to live, with Him one day,
In glorious Heaven, far away!

“Here I Am Lord, Send Me!”

O Lord, Your lost sheep are ev’rywhere,
Lord give me a heart, that truly cares.
When I hear Your Voice, e’er so softly,
Lord, let me say: “Here I am, send me!”

Your lost sheep are in city jungles wild,
Lord, give me words, to make them Your child.
When I feel Your Presence, e’er so near,
I should say: “Send me” without any fear.

Your lost sheep are in the mountains high,
Lord, give me strength that I qualify.
When I feel You tugging at my heart,
Send me, Lord,” that I may do my part.

Your lost sheep are by the ocean side,
Lord, give me wisdom, and be my Guide.
When I hear You say: “Go ye therefore,”
Send me, Lord;” help me open their door.

Your lost sheep are being led astray,
By the devil, in this wicked day.
Help me Jesus, to have the desire,
To lift these lost ones, out of sin’s mire.

Lord, give me boldness to stand by You,
Don’t let me fear, what folks say or do.
Don’t let me worry ‘bout what I’ll say,
For You will give me words, if I obey.

Lord give me a compassionate heart,
To help these lost ones, from sin to depart.
I must say: “Here I am, Lord, send me,”
Or they won’t see life eternally.

Isaih 6:8 Also I heard the voice of the Lord, saying, Whom shall I send, and who will go for us? Then said I, Here am I; send me. (KJV)  . . . I, like Isaiah, say to Him “Here I am, Lord, send me,” for I, like Isaiah am ready and willing to do what He  asks of me.

HE'S MY EVERYTHING . . . Mar.1999 Message

Much more precious, than bright diamonds,
Is Christ’s love for us, that does abound!
Love so gracious, merciful and true,
Such precious love, we can’t misconstrue.

Much more precious, than a grand ruby,
Is Christ’s love, that brought victory!
Sin and Satan, no longer control,
For Christ our Saviour, has saved our soul!

Much more precious, than possessions galore,
Knowing one day we’ll stand, on Heav’n’s shore!
To live for e’er, with Jesus so dear,
With ne’er a heartache, pain nor fear!

Much more precious, than earthly power,
Is Christ’s awesome love, that’s there ev’ry hour!
His grace and love, and mercy unending,
There for us always, strongly defending!

Much more precious, than treasures untold,
His love, is more precious than gold!
Christ is so wondrous, so true; I’m at a loss,
He loved us SO much, He died on the cross!

HE’S THERE

He’s there, as I go on that narrow road,
Helping to carry my cumbersome load.
He’s there, as my uphill path does unfold,
To lead me in great light, and love untold.

He’s there, to lead in paths I do not know,
With compassion and grace, He does bestow.
We walk by our faith, and not by our sight,
With the “Light” of Jesus, ‘tis never night!

He’s there, to lead me one day at a time,
He’ll not leave nor forsake, a promise fine.
Tomorrow is a day I won’t fret about,
For He’s there, always, to show me the route!

Doctors can do no more for my health, so I have claimed some Promises in God’s Word:
1 Cor. 10:13 There hath no temptation taken you but such as is common to man: but God is faithful, who will not suffer you to be tempted above that ye are able; but will with the temptationalso make a way to escape, that ye may be able to bear it. (KJV)
2 Cor. 12:9-10 And he said unto me, My grace is sufficient for thee: for my strength is made perfect in weakness. Most gladly therefore will I rather glory in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest upon me. 10 Therefore I take pleasure in infirmities, in reproaches, in necessities, in persecutions, in distresses for Christ's sake: for when I am weak, then am I strong. (KJV)
Hebrews 13:5  Let your conversation be without covetousness; and be content with such things as ye have: for he hath said, I will never leave thee, nor forsake thee. (KJV)

HIS POEMS

I write poetry at God’s command,
His words just seem to flow thru’ my hand.
I take no credit, nor want any,
But give praise to my God, of eternity.

The poems have touched, so many hearts,
Some words tender, some cut like darts.
They’ve been called “miracles” by more than one,
I give thanks to, and praise God’s own Son.

Most of the poems come in the dark night,
When the words come, they’re bright as sunlight.
In the quiet, I feel God so near,
I’ll praise You always, my Saviour, dear.

The poems are a gift, God has given me,
And I give them to others, willingly.
I’m simply His servant, now and always,
I’ll thank and praise Him, all my days.

HOMESICK . . . Feb.2003 Message

I’ve been homesick often in past years,
So homesick, that I was brought to tears.
Homesick, for a place I’ve never seen,
Excepting that, of glorious dreams.

I’ve been homesick for my heav’n’ly home,
As a foreigner, on Earth I roam.
Thinking of life in eternity,
Knowing that Christ holds the only ‘key.’

I’ve been homesick for my “mansion” there,
Reserv’d for me, by Jesus who cares.
In this awesome City, of pure gold,
All the glory of God I’ll behold.

I’m homesick to see my Lord and King,
In this wondrous land of vast blessings.
When I die, angels will carry me,
To my true Home in eternity.

One day soon; I’ll be homesick no more,
For I’ll be there on those blissful shores.
Lord, thank You, for what You’ve done for me,
Securing my home in eternity.

Can we be ‘homesick’ for a home we have never seen? I think the answer is yes!

When we read in the Bible what awaits us when we leave this life on Earth, we do get homesick!
John 14:2-6 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. 4 And whither I go ye know, and the way ye know. 5 Thomas saith unto him, Lord, we know not whither thou goest; and how can we know the way? 6 Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me. (KJV)
1Peter 1:3-5 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. (KJV)
Revelation 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)

I Can’t Go Along With . . .

It matters not what others think of me,
My concern is the God of eternity.
What I do may not, with others sit just right,
But I must do what is pleasing in His sight.

I can’t go along with, this wicked world,
With each new day, more evil is unfurled.
Each of us must stand, ‘fore the Judge one day,
And I want Him to send me, Heaven’s way!

I can’t go along with, the blasphemy,
Using God’s Name in vain, e’er so freely.
I will instead stand, so close to His Side,
And pray that His Spirit, always reside.

I can’t go along with, stealing and lies,
Those who are oppressed, have painful cries.
I’ll walk close to Him, and trust Him to lead,
And to His wise counsel, I’ll always heed.

I can’t go along with, immorality,
Sexual lust, gives Satan victory.
I must walk with Christ, in His Light instead,
That the agony of hell, I’ll never dread.

I can’t go along with, covetousness,
If I’m greedy and love money, God won’t bless.
I must store up my treasures, way up there,
Storing things here, won’t get me any where.

I must go along with, what God wants for me,
Or I’ll never see, life eternally.
What others think of me; it matters not,
For I’m God’s child, with Christ’s Blood, I was bought.

Where truth and justice, shall have no end.

Unspeakable, is this awesome place,
Where we’ll be privileg’d, to see Your Face.
Your glorious Presence, shall be so near,
We’ll never ever, have any fear.

I can’t imagine, how I will change,
My whole body, You will re-arrange.
No lusting of the flesh, any more,
All sin will be gone, on Heav’n’s shore.

No more hasty, hurtful words will I say,
Just loving, compassionate words, that day.
No more malice, not one evil deed,
No more coveting, no more greed.

I can’t imagine, what love shall flow,
In this grand place, all believers will know.
Your wondrous Home, will be our home too,
Where we will forever be with You.

In this world, we are just sojourners here,
Your welcom’d Coming, is drawing near.
You’ll take us to our mansion on high,

Then I’ll live with Him, eternally.
Then, every single day, I’ll see Him,
In our glorious Home, that’s never dim.

I HEARD JESUS KNOCK . . . June 2007 Message

So many times, I heard Jesus knock,
But with each visit, His entrance I’d block.
My eyes were open, but I could not see,
I just never thought, ‘bout eternity.

Christ would knock, I’d pretend not to hear,
But I’d feel His Presence, e’er so near.
I had a heart, but it was hard and cold,
My mind was fill’d, with worldly visions untold.

When Jesus would knock, I’d turn away,
Thinking I’d hide, and stay out of His way.
I had ears, but they simply would not hear,
Of an eternal Hell, I had no fear.

But one sweet day, my eyes opened wide,
I then understood, Christ wanted to abide.
I opened the door of my heart that day,
Opened it wide, opened it all the way!

He then gave me a new, tender, soft heart,
And from my old ways, I wanted to depart.
Christ will never have to knock any more,
Wide open to Jesus, is my heart’s door.

Now I have ears that listen so well,
I decided I want no part of Hell.
I have no fear at all, of my destiny,
I know Heav’n will be my Home, eternally.

Lord, I thank You, for not giving up on me,
I praise You Lord, for Your gracious mercy.
I thank You Lord, that You continued to knock,
I’m so grateful, I’m now one of Your flock.

 I did hear Jesus knock on my heart’s door so many times, but I would not open to Him. Oh! How I regret that! SO many wasted days that I could have been serving Him.

I MUST BEWARE . . . of what I say and do

I didn’t like words, that to me were said,
But, at times words I say, cause You dread.
I must not judge others, I must judge me,
Help me to see that I’m far from sin-free.

Lord, at times I don’t like things that are done,
They cause me much grief, and are no fun.
But judging others is not, for me to do,
I must let that in Your Hands, it’s up to You.

Some times for no reason my anger flares,
I can’t judge other’s anger, I must beware.
I must always be careful, I must judge me,
From all the wrongs that I do, I must flee.

I can’t remove the speck in someone’s eye,
If the log in my eye, I flatly deny.
I must beware of actions that I do,
If I want to be a follower of You.

So quick am I, to judge other’s bad ways,
I must think of me, and what I portray.
Perhaps You see my sin, far worse than theirs,
I must consider this, I must beware.

Do you have trouble with these things as I do? Neither of us should judge others. 1 Cor. 11:31 For if we would judge ourselves, we should not be judged. (KJV)

Lord, I need to know more about you,

I need to feel your presence so near,
For then my troubles seem to disappear.
I need to feel your loving kindness,
Your mercy and compassion, as you bless.

I need about Jesus, more to learn,
Let your Spirit teach me to discern.
More ‘bout your kingdom, I need to know,
As I try to walk the strait and narrow.

Lord, I need to serve you more each day,
I need your Spirit to show the way.
More loving and caring I must be,
O Lord, how I need you, constantly!

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.

What a wonderful day it will be when I will sin no more.
Phil.3:20-21 For our conversation is in heaven; from whence also we look for the Saviour, the Lord Jesus Christ: 21 Who shall change our vile body, that it may be fashioned like unto his glorious body, according to the working whereby he is able even to subdue all things unto himself. (KJV)

I’LL BE THERE

One day when you walk, on that street of gold,
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!

For those who trust Jesus to save their soul, He promises that our RESERVED inheritance in Heaven awaits! Thank You Jesus! 1 Peter 1:4-5 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. (KJV)

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.

Thank You Jesus for wisdom to know, that what I do must be in Your will!

Love For The Lord

The love I have for the Lord, I must express,
A deep heart felt love, a love I must confess.
This fervent love for Him, grows stronger each day,
As I walk close to Him, in the narrow way.

I love Him more than my father or mother,
For Christ Jesus is, my spiritual Brother.
Because I love Jesus, the Father loves me too,
With love that I simply cannot, misconstrue.

God’s grace is with me, for my love is sincere,
For I can always feel, His Presence so near.
I will stand firm and hold fast, in this great love,
And reject evils, in this world of push and shove.

He blesses me, when I endure temptation,
Promised a crown, along with salvation.
Master, I love Thee, with all my heart and soul,
And I have given to You, complete control.

I look to the day, when You shall appear,
‘Twill be a day of joy, there will be no fear.
Face to face precious Lord, You will I see,
And I will then spend with You, eternity.

Although I have not seen Him, I love Him so,
And know He will keep me, from fiery Hell below.
Instead I shall abide, on Heav’n’s blissful shore,
And there daily learn, to love Him, yet more.

Many Mistakes

Mistakes, I make 'em, every single day,
As I strive to walk, on that narrow way.
Why can't I think ahead, before I do?
Then decisions would come out, right and true.

Horrible blunders, so often I make,
Not thinking ahead, is my biggest mistake.
Why can't I realize, wisdom is best?
Will I ever be that wise, to pass this test?

Walking wrong roads, as I live on this land,
Falling often, into the devil's hand.
Unto temptation, I oft' times give in,
Walking with Satan, on the road of sin.

Wrong decisions, come too easy for me,
As I live my life, careless and carefree.
I never considered, what was ahead,
I wanted no sorrow, wanted no dread.

Wrong decisions, will continue for me,
But now I do think, of eternity.
I know Earth is not, my permanent home,
As I strive, on the narrow road, to roam.

A Bible Truth: there will be a Judgment Day,
And each one of us, shall receive just pay.
According to works, what we think and do,
Is how we shall be judged, both me and you.

We all must consider, more carefully,
As we each walk, toward eternity.
We must be wise, and think before we do,
If we want to be, some of Heaven's "few."

ME

Lord, I’m so wretched, how I have failed you,
The old me is sinful, it keeps coming thru.
My old self, mind and nature; gives in to sin,
No matter how hard I try, it seems to win.

My heart is so deceitful; who can know it?
My mind dreams up evil, and it just won’t quit.
Seems I want to do wrong; the old me responds,
Satan says “DO”, I do; above and beyond.

Lord, I’m so wretched, how I fail you each day,
The fight inside is a never ending sway.
Old me at war, against the good one, so new,
Lord, I need you or this day, I won’t get thru’.

“What I would” is what the new me wants to do,
“That I do not”, the old me turns against you.
What the new me hates, the old me simply does,
Lord, I’m so weak, I need power to oppose.

Lord, I’m so wretched, how I have failed you,
I do so hate these wicked things that I do.
I must yield my all, let your Spirit guide me,
Then from this sinfulness, you will help me flee.

Lord, have mercy upon me; blot out my sins,
Wash me completely, cleanse me from deep within.
I acknowledge my wrongs; sin is before me,
Wash me with His precious Blood, and I’ll be free.

I thank Almighty God, thru’ Jesus our Lord,
For He has delivered me, from all discord.
This life here on Earth, has such struggles within,
So we must turn to Jesus; as each day begins.

ME, THEN AND NOW

Memories I have of long ago,
When precious Jesus I did not know.
So many years from Him I did flee,
But He was patient; waiting for me.

As a child, I rode my sled one day,
As young children do, happy at play.
At the bottom of the hill, was a well,
Head first into it, I simply fell.

My aunt walked, on a path close by,
And she saw my play time go awry.
She was there in a flash, ‘fore I could shout.
She reached and caught me, and pulled me out,

My Saviour had other plans for me,
Death in that well, was not my destiny.
He saved me to do things I knew not then,
I would serve Him; reaching out to lost men.

I let Satan keep me in his net,
Those wasted years I truly regret.
But praise be to Christ, I’ll now serve always,
Clinging to Him the rest of my days.

This really happened. Neither my aunt or my grandma told Mother what happened that day. Many years later, my aunt told Mom. Mom then asked me if that really had happened. I told her that it did happen. God had things He wanted me to do, somewhere down the line. I hope I have served Him in a way that has pleased Him.

(Ro.7:14-25; Jer.17:9) Rom. 7:19 For the good that I would I do not: but the evil which I would not, that I do. (KJV) . . . I know exactly how the apostle Paul felt.

MY GREATEST BLESSING

My Greatest Blessing is Christ Jesus, God’s Son,
And I thank Him daily, for all He has done.
He helps me this day, and will for eternity,
And He’s ne-er too busy, to hear my ev’ry plea!

My Greatest Blessing, comfort He brings my way,
An everlasting consolation, I feel each day.
My heart has hope thru’ His grace, each single hour,
For one day He’ll resurrect me, with His power!
 
My Greatest Blessing, is my Greatest Treasure,
My heart feels it shall burst, with awesome pleasure.
He has gone on ahead, my home to prepare,
Where I will forever, His grand love to share.

Most people want no part, of Jesus the Lord,
And they want no part, of God’s Holy Word.
But that is the ONLY place, to find the Truth,
Be you elderly, middle age, or in your youth.

People keep on in sin, ne-er thinking they shall pay,
They do not think, of what shall be, on Judgment day.
You don’t want to stand, before the Great White Throne,
For agony awaits you, and you all alone!

 May I suggest, accept the Blessing so great,
Jesus can keep you, from Hell’s tormenting fate.
Only Jesus, has the key to Heav’n above,
Acceptance of Him, shall flood your soul with love!

The Greatest Blessing e’er, you too can proclaim,
If you trust and believe, in Jesus’ Holy Name.
You can escape, the horrid torments of Hell,
Jesus can reserve in Heav’n, a place for you to dwell.

Gratitude for Christ Jesus, is what I feel,
For I know in my heart, my soul He has sealed.
Jesus can be a Blessed Treasure, for you,
 If only you believe, God’s Holy Word so true!

My Greatest Treasure

My Greatest Treasure, blesses me each day.
Ne’er does He depart, as I walk my way.
He tells me, He will ne’er leave nor forsake,
Tis true, for of His Spirit I partake.

Jesus, is the Greatest Treasure to me,
His righteousness, set my sin-sick soul free.
He justified me, making me God’s friend,
Gives to me, life in Heav’n, with no end.

Jesus is worth more to me, than silver or gold,
And more precious stones, than a truck could hold.
Alongside Christ, worldly riches mean nothing,
Just knowing He’s near, is a great blessing.

My Greatest Treasure, leads, guides and directs,
And He’s always close by, me to protect.
His awesome pow’r comes thru’, when I am weak,
He’s with me always, so I need not seek.

My Greatest Treasure, floods my soul with love,
Which I need, in this world of push and shove.
His abundant love, is shed upon me,
As I walk with Him, to eternity.

My Greatest Treasure, is so merciful.
His compassion to me, is wonderful.
When Judgment Day comes, I will have no fear,
For the Judge, my Greatest Treasure, is near.

God’s Word states, that Jesus is many things,
Redeemer, Saviour, Prophet, Priest and King.
But He is the Greatest Treasure, to me,
Freely gifting me, with life eternally.

Grant dear Lord, that Your angels watch o’er me,
That I may live my life, solely for Thee.

I must take up my cross, and follow You,
Or I’m not worthy, to be one of the few.
I must be willing, on Your road to walk,
Or I open myself to Satan, as he stalks.

Keep me from lusting, and keep me from greed.

This is a Promise, I can well afford.

Is not what most folk would think to be.

For I know deep down, He’ll never depart!
He’s with me now, today and always,
To the end of this Earth’s fleeting days.

He gives me victory o’er my sin,
A wondrous Saviour; always has been!
He paid the debt I could never pay,
And the Father’s wrath from me did sway.

Christ died on that Cross, that I might live,
All that He had, for me He did give!
This kind of love the ‘world’ does not know,
And only Jesus, this love could show.

When my brief life here on Earth is thru’,
He’ll see that my angels will rescue.
They’ll carry my soul to my Heav’nly Home,
Into God’s presence, and I’ll never roam.

MY COMMITMENT

Firmly I stand by my Saviour, Lord and Friend.
He is my life, and I want only to live for Him,
With His radiant Light, my path is never dim.

Bold and firm, in this commitment I’ll stand,
What e’er may befall, the Lord takes my hand.
Tho’ I get weak, and stumble to my knees,
Encouragement comes from Him, like a cool breeze.

This commitment I’ve made, I do not regret,
Tho’ persecutions and sorrows do beset.
I’ll stand firm and persevere, come what may,
For the Lord’s wisdom and pow’r are there each day.

Most don’t understand, my life I did entrust,
Christ Jesus is my all, and serve Him, I must.
I’m not the same person I used to be,
Committing to Christ, gave me new identity.

Fellowship with Jesus is an awesome thing,
Knowing Him personally, is a blessing.
Serving Him is an honor, ever so great,
A privilege that many underestimate.

Tho’ many times I grieve God’s well belov’d Son,
Thru’ my sinful nature; by evil things I’ve done.
Yet when I repent and confess, He forgives me,
I’m glad I’ve committed to Him, eternally.

And He also desires, the same thing for you.

My Constant Companion, wants me to obey,
To do things of the Spirit, each and ev’ry day.
We are to avoid, worldly and fleshly things,
For our obedience, shall grand blessings bring.

The Holy Spirit tells me, that I am God’s child,
Ev’n tho’ the devil maintains, that I am defil’d.
He also helps me, when I know not what to pray,
Making intercession for me, all of my days.

My Friend will be with me, till my days on Earth end,

My Hope and Dream

As I look, at my life in the past,
My many sins, were wicked and vast.
On my mind, were just worldly treasures,
I thought only of “self,” and my pleasures.

But my soul, had a deep, empty space,
Nothing I did, could fill that void place.
Wealth or possessions, seem’d to make it worse,
Made me wonder, “Am I on the right course?”

I went to church, but things did not change,
The pastor’s sermons, to me seem’d strange.
Finally, a dear old man, got thru’ to me,
As he spoke gently, of eternity.

I then knew, I was on the wrong road,
That broad path won’t lead, to Heav’n’s abode.
I sought the Lord Jesus, but He found me,
His Home will be mine, in eternity!

Talking to Jesus!

There was an awesome joy, that I never knew,
‘Til the day I open’d, my heart to You.
You made the diff’rence, In my lonely soul,
Since then, loving You, has been my goal.

Your caring smile, one day I will see,
In my new Home, of bliss and beauty.
I’ll reach out and hold, Your nail-scarr’d Hand,
As I walk with You, on that Golden Strand.

One day my hope and dream, will come true,
For I will spend, eternity with You!
Your soft, comforting Voice, I will hear,
For Lord and Master, You will be so near!

My Inheritance

My three score and ten, are now behind me,
As I keep walking, to eternity.
What lies ahead, I don’t know,
But of this I am sure, to Heaven I’ll go!

I believe what God, has said in His Book,
He gave me wisdom, to open and look.
The Father gave His Son, our sin debt to pay,
He made just ONE Plan, Jesus is that Way!

We must believe God, and accept His Son,
When we do this, salvation has begun.
What Christ did on the cross, we must believe,
He took our place, so life in Heav’n we receive!

His Sacrifice, opened the gates of Heav’n,
To those of faith, eternal life is giv’n.
Only faith in Jesus, can justify,
That makes peace with God, which He won’t deny!

Jesus said, I go and prepare a place,
I think of this oft, as I run my race.
My inheritance, is reserv’d for me,
Ne’er to fade away, in all eternity!

When I arrive, and enter thru’ a gate,
I will be so anxious, to know my fate.
My earnest plea, is to continue to serve,
My belov’d Master, whom I don’t deserve!

Of Jesus, my Saviour, I’m not worthy,
Yet God has promised, life eternally.
Nothing I have done, or ever could do,
Christ already did it! Lord, I love You!

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)
Scriptures for this poem: (Ps.90:10; Jn.3:16; 1 Jn.5:10-13; Jn.5:24; 6:40, 47; Rom.5:1; Tit.3:7; Jn.14:2-3). 
1 Peter 1:3-5 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,  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. (KJV)

My Last Journey

What e’er Your will is, that is my desire,
I’ll serve You Lord, ‘til this tired body expires.
Grant dear Lord, that Your angels watch o’er me,
That I may live my life, solely for Thee.

I must take up my cross, and follow You,
Or I’m not worthy, to be one of the few.
I must be willing, on Your road to walk,
Or I open myself to Satan, as he stalks.

Let me reach out to others, in their need,
Keep me from lusting, and keep me from greed.
Help me cast off hatred, fill me with love,
That I may be fitted, for Heav’n above.

Absent from the body, present with the Lord,
This is a Promise, I can well afford.
My inheritance, someday I will claim,
My mansion that no one, can corrupt or maim.

My guardian angels, will carry me on thru’,
The old devil’s air space, on home to You.
They will not allow him, my soul to claim,
For I have been seal’d, in the Saviour’s Name!

MY LOVED ONES

There are times my heart simply does break,
When I ponder o’er lov’d ones, for their sake.
They simply can’t see what lies ahead,
Many tears fall as I lay on my bed.

Some have hearts that are as hard as stone,
The Gospel is hidden, ev’n when shown.
Each time they hear, and don’t let Him in,
They’re harden’d the more, thru’ deceit of sin.

Ears of most are heavy and stopped,
They won’t listen, when the Word is dropped.
Turning their ears away from His Word,
It’s just as if they had never heard!

Then there are those who walk in the dark,
They can’t see Christ, nor Him do they hark.
This disturbs me, gives me great distress,
Why can’t they see Christ? and Him confess?

Satan blinds them; they do not believe,
They don’t understand; they can’t percieve.
If their minds were clear; I pray again,
The light of Jesus would shine on them.

I know I should pray, “All in His will,”
But with these lost ones, it’s hard to be still!
I don’t know who are His ‘chosen’ ones,
I’ll just keep praying they’ll see His Son!

The most crucial decision they’ll e’er make,
Eternal destination, is what’s at stake!
Thru’ tears of anguish, I pray on my bed,
I love them so much, but their future I dread!

MY MOST TREASURED POSSESSION

My most treasured possession is a ‘Book’,
So worn and tattered, most would not ev’n look!
Nearly ev’ry page marked, as to remind,
Of other places, where in the ‘Book’ to find.

This marvelous ‘Book’, is God’s most holy Word,
It led me to my Saviour Jesus, my Lord.
How I love that precious ‘Book’, and always will,
It gives such great comfort, and a void does fill.

In this ‘Book’, I do find Heaven’s only Key,
It can do the same for you, as it did me.
God’s love is plainly told; how He sent His Son,
How thru’ Christ, eternal life has just begun.

I could not go ev’n one day, without God’s ‘Book’,
In it He gives strength and guidance, if you’d look.
Such great joy and peace will come into your heart,
Don’t turn your back on Christ, nor from His Word depart.

This is yet another poem concerning ‘me’.

THE WONDER OF HIS PRESENCE

Tho’ terrible pain wracks my body,
Tho’ pain is actually agony,
His awesome Presence is always there,
I can feel His vast comforting care.

I can tolerate the pain each day,
For His grand Presence eases the way.
He’ll ne’er give us more than we can bear,
His comforting compassion, He shares.

No matter what Satan sends my way,
Christ’s wondrous Presence is there each day.
He’s always there, He’ll never leave,
Comfort from Him, I always achieve.

The wonder of His Presence I feel,
Love, comfort and strength, is O so real.
His Presence is amazingly true,
It’s there for me, and can be for you.

Psalm 23: Rom.8:38-39; 1 Cor.10:13; 2 Cor. 1:3; 2-4; 1 Pet.4:12; James 1:2-4.
I have had a non-stop headache since March of 2008, I am SO grateful for His abiding Presence!

Wasted Time

Time I've wasted, is a huge regret,
And lustful sin, I cannot forget.
When I think about, things I have done,
My heart weeps, and I just want to run.

There's a high wall, between God and me,
When with His will, I refuse to agree.
I run and run, with no place to hide,
Help me dear Lord, with You to abide.

Then reality hit me, in the face,
My sins against God, were a disgrace.
All past memories, rush thru' my head,
Pain I feel is clear, by tears I shed.

To receive God's mercy, we must obey,
My friend, there is simply, no other way.
Trust AND obey, is what we must do,
To receive that wondrous grace, from You.

Dear one, have you faced reality?
Have you e'er thought 'bout eternity?
Have you regretted, sins you have done?
Does your heart weep, and you just want to run?

Does past wickedness, rush to your head?
Is pain revealed, by tears that you shed?
God's mercy is there, for you and me,
And His Gift of salvation, is FREE!

Turn to Christ this day, 'fore it's too late,
For He has the only key, to Heav'n's Gate.
Just two roads lead, to eternity,
Heaven OR Hell, which one will it be?

Watchmen On The Wall . . . we all need to be

Watchmen on the wall, is what we must be,
Exposing false teachers, and heresies.
When danger lurks, the trumpet we must blow,
We must strive to keep souls, from Hell below.

We must in obedience, serve the Lord,
We must get wisdom, from His Holy Word.
We must serve our Master, willingly,
As we look forward, to eternity.

So many vile, false teachers, do abound,
These evil wolves can’t keep you, safe and sound.
Falsely they teach, damnable heresies,
That will only lead, to Hell’s agonies.

‘Tis abominable, what these wolves spout,
These wolves are leading souls, down the wrong route.
Where are the watchmen?? There’s desperate need!
For these hungry wolves, on trusting souls feed.

There are FAR too few, watchmen on the wall,
Not exposing danger, no trumpet calls!
Watchmen are needed, it’s a necessity,
To e’er realize, Heav’n’s prosperity.

If you’re a Christian, a TRUE child of God,
You must stand up and expose, these wolves’ fraud!
We are stewards, of God’s manifold grace,
We must obey God, and do it with haste!

Ezekiel 3:17 Son of man, I have made thee a watchman unto the house of Israel: therefore hear the word at my mouth, and give them warning from me. (KJV) . . . Just as Ezekiel was a “watchman” over Israel, so too are we today, “watchmen” over the church. Beware my friend, it is a serious, sobering job!
1 Peter 4:10
As every man hath received the gift, even so minister the same one to another, as good stewards of the manifold grace of God. (KJV) . . . I consider myself a ‘watchman’ and I truly believe that the Lord expects it of me. I know there are some who do NOT like the idea of my bringing light on false doctrines and false teachers, but in today’s world, that is what a ‘watchman’ does! If I can save one soul, by bringing the Truth, it will be worth all the many hours I spend.

“WELL DONE”

There is one special thing for which I pray,
It’s on my mind, ev’ry night and day.
I pray that I’ll hear the words: “Well done,”
By my Lord and Master, God’s own Son!

Well done, my servant,” I pray I’ll hear,
That He’ll turn away, is my worst fear.
I want to please Him, and His will do,
I pray I’ll always be faithful and true.

My faithful servant, you have done well,”
Now in Heaven with Me, ye shall dwell.
To hear these words, is my greatest desire,
Of serving Jesus, I will never tire.

To hear “Well done,” would be my greatest treasure,
That’s why I serve Him, with enormous pleasure.
Well done,” words I need so desperately,
That’s why I serve Jesus, so willingly.

Matthew 25:21 His lord said unto him, Well done, thou good and faithful servant: thou hast been faithful over a few things, I will make thee ruler over many things: enter thou into the joy of thy lord. (KJV)
Well done, are the words I pray that I will hear my Master say to me one day.

WHAT WILL I SAY???

What will I say, to the Almighty Judge?
When on His decisions, He won’t budge?
I can beg and cry, and for mercy plead,
But it’ll be too late, my words He won’t heed.

Just what will I say, at the Judgment Seat?
When the All-knowing Judge I finally meet?
I know He’ll have records of all I’ve done,
I won’t put anything o’er, God’s own Son.

He’ll know about the things, I did not do,
And He’ll know about, the wrongs I did too.
Rewards or loss of rewards, will come my way,
As I consider this, what will I say?

I must NOW really think, of how I live,
I must confess my sins, so God can forgive.
I must walk with Christ, on the narrow path,
I must live righteous, to avoid God’s wrath.

NOW is when I should think, of the Judgment Seat,
For one day soon, the Great Judge I’ll meet.
Will He be pleased, with my service to Him?
What will I say, on this day O so grim?

I will be judged, on all works I have done,
When I come Face to face, with God’s own Son.
All His judgments will be righteous and just,
What will I say, to my Lord whom I trust?

Soon in the future, will come Judgment Day,
I have no idea, of what I will say.
I look to this day with uneasiness,
I must live my life, so my Lord will bless.

You Search Me and Know Me

Lord, You search me, and know me completely,
When I sit, and when I rise, You do see.
From afar off, my thoughts You understand,
Whether I’m home, or in a distant land.

You chart my path, and You know all my ways,
You see me lie down, after a hard day.
The words on my tongue, You know ev’ry one,
You know what I’ll say, ev’n ‘fore I’ve begun.

You protect me Lord, in front and behind,
You lay Your Hand on me, ev’r so kind.
To know this, is so wonderful for me,
And Your lovingkindness, is always free.

From Your awesome Presence, I cannot flee,
You are always there, taking care of me.
No matter where I go, You are always there,
What an awesome privilege, my Father cares.

Darkness can’t hide me; not the blackest night,
Ev’n the darkest night is as broad daylight.
Darkness and light are both alike to Thee,
I’m truly grateful, that You watch ov’r me.

How precious are Thy thoughts, the sum so great,
And all of them Lord, I appreciate.
I’m still with You, ev’ry time I awake,
O Lord, I’m so grateful, for my soul’s sake.

Search me, O God, and know all in my heart.
Try me, and know my thoughts, please don’t depart.
See if there be any wicked way in me,
Lead me O Lord, to life eternally.

YOUR WILL, YOUR WAY

Your will, Your way, is all that I ask,
Give me strength and faith, for ev’ry task.
When doubt creeps in, I should always pray,
Increase my faith,” is what I should say.

Your will, Your way, let it always be,
Please Lord, keep Your watchful eye on me.
Dear Lord, don’t let me stray from the path,
I want no part, of Your righteous wrath.

Your will, Your way, or it will be wrong,
Let me trust in You Lord, make me strong.
I tend to roam, from Your path of light,
I need Your Spirit, to guide me right.

Your will, Your way, each and ev’ry day,
I must feel Your Presence, so I don’t stray.
“I will never leave, nor forsake thee,”
I claim this Promise, for my vic’try.

Your will, Your way, or I want it not,
For with the Blood of Christ, I was bought.
I want not, my Lord to disobey,
Lord, I want You, to show me the way.

Your will, Your way, most refuse to choose,
Can’t they see, in the end they will lose?
Yes! There is Heav’n, but also a Hell,
A frightful place, you don’t want to dwell.

Your will, Your way Lord, or Heav’n is lost,
Have you ever, considered the cost?
Your eternal destiny, you do hold,
Eternal agony, or bliss untold.

YOUR WISHES AND YOUR WILL

If my life is not pleasing to Thee,
Lord, reveal all my errors to me.
Your wishes and Your will, Yours alone,
Lord, please make Your will to me, made known.

Your will be done, I want nothing more,
For it’s You, Lord, I worship and adore.
Serving You daily, is my pleasure,
Blessings from You, are a great treasure.

Difficult, are some lessons in life,
Your strength is needed, when I face strife.
No matter what, don’t let me back away,
Let me be faithful, day after day.

If it’s not Your will, let me pass by,
I know worldly things, I must deny.
Your wishes and Your will, this I desire,
Let me, with Your love, others inspire.

Your wishes and Your will, let me seek,
And gracious Lord, help me to be meek.
Give me patience, as I walk with You,
Guiding on the narrow road with the “few.”

I look forward to my home above,
Where I will continue, to serve in love.
I care not, what others think of me,
I look to the day, when I’ll live with Thee.
