For Your Review

Once my earthly journey is complete,
humbly I’ll stand before Your judgment seat.
So in advance I faithfully pray to have
a positive ruling for you to mete.

Grace and mercy carried me;
Your covering on my life you should see.
Hopefully You’ll remember that I
promoted Your Kingdom for eternity.

Despite flaws and failures absurd,
hidden in my heart is Your Holy Word.
An attitude of lifelong praise I’ve spoken
based on what I’ve learned and heard.

With an inkling of spiritual clues,
I’m thankful for knowing You
and looking forward to that fateful day
when my life will be ready, for Your Review.

The Cross, Stark and Still

Into the depths of untold depravity,
a perfect creation had fallen away;
unimagined grace poured out from our God above –
As His Hand of wrath was firmly stayed.

The Cross, stark and still, standing upon a naked hill…
subtly calls for the World’s attention.

Since the dawn of everlasting time,
our Savior awaited His appointed day;
despite humanity’s race to certain doom –
His Hand of wrath was intentionally stayed.

The Cross, stark and still, standing upon a naked hill…
continues to demonstrate His gift of Salvation.

The twinkling stars danced across the midnight blue
as songs arose from the angelic array;
quietly the Messianic babe in a manger lay –
As His Hand of wrath was lovingly stayed.

The Cross, stark and still, standing upon a naked hill…
serves as a testament of Love’s perfection.

A carpenter’s son? He’s just a man!
His godly claim on earth displayed
had believers searching for purest faith –
His Hand of wrath was securely stayed.

The Cross, stark and still, standing upon a naked hill…
reminds that our debt was paid for sin’s violation.

In the face of false accusations,
Christ held His tongue to Pilate’s dismay,
for God’s plan played out for all to see –
As His Hand of wrath was purposely stayed.

The Cross, stark and still, standing upon a naked hill…
is a backdrop for a risen Lord calling us with adoration.

Show of Hands

Despite the differences of skin color
and our cultural upbringings,
we’re more than brothers of Mankind –
Technically, we’re kin.

Go to the mountain
preserved by ice and snow
where the revelation of Ararat’s secret
is available for everyone to know.

For the ark’s existence
proves the global flood story is true
and being our brother’s keeper…
Is still a right thing to do.

Descended from Noah
are the many races of Man;
see our palms have the same tint –
By a show of hands.

New Age Spirituality

Why settle for a counterfeit
when you can have the genuine thing?
For the purpose of “new age” spirituality
is replacing God with the Human Being.

Working from a false assumption
that Man is essentially good,
will lead us down destruction’s path
as History has taught us, as it would.

The fight for supremacy
of our human souls
is still being waged by the Devil
under his planetary control.

Humanism has its agenda
that’s carefully worked under Satan’s scope –
our demise is his goal, but settles
to leave us without any hope.

Fragile, Flawed and Easily Broken

Despite imperfections of this body,
my shell is an earthen clay jar
that’s fragile, flawed and easily broken,
letting the Light of Christ shine.
Though not pretty on the outside,
I won’t be mistaken
for a white-washed tomb –
God can use my weakness
to display His greatness.
I’ve chosen to be submitted
to His Will and Plan for my life.
In spite of exterior chips, dings and nicks,
Christ looks inwardly at my heart.

Brought to Enlightenment

We must learn to do
and not weakly try;
for with Christ, all is possible –
Just stop asking “Why?”

Bow before Him on bended knees,
for His Ways are superior to ours.
Spend quality time in prayer
and not simply waste precious hours.

To be brought to enlightenment,
one must learn on his own.
Yet, the secret is simply this –
Go before God and His Throne.

Drawn To You

The softness of Your quiet voice
penetrates my spirit with utmost clarity –
For being drawn to you
comes more than naturally.

The constant woes of earthly cares
lack all meaning and worth
when I’m consumed by Your presence
and experience my spiritual rebirth.

Despite the magnificent beauty
of this planet’s garden fields,
I would willingly exchange it
for the brilliance that Heaven yields.

Since I’m captivated by The Light,
being drawn to You is… the sweetest of delights.

Green Meadows

Beneath the shadow
of the Great Shepherd’s staff,
in the green lushness of Life’s plateau,
my spirit continues to laugh.

Despite the dumbness of this sheep
to His voice I’ve heeded.
For God’s Love is greater than deep
and to His Principles, I’ve conceded.

My life is filled with abundance
beyond mortal imagination.
Enjoying protection from circumstance
came from obeying rules of His Holy Nation.

From displaying a submissive behavior
towards a God most divine,
I’m covered with blessings from my Savior
and reside in green meadows until Eternity’s time.

Captivated By The Light

My inner desire is to be…
Free from the continuing burden
of my soul’s carnality.

For I wish to be liberated
from the snares of sin’s grip
and be forever emancipated.

Truly, I’m captivated by The Light
that shines eternally into my spirit
and erases my heart’s love of Earthly delights.

Fulfillment of my life’s emptiness
is only met by a spiritual purpose
with God’s call to His Holiness.

For Just One Day

For just one day, I’d like to see
a tour of God’s throne room and His glassy sea.
Or perhaps to take a leisurely stroll
among heavenly streets made from purest gold.
Maybe I’d glimpse the pearly gates,
to find out who is really standing in wait.
Another option would be to find
the stately mansion that’s eventually mine.
But seeing the Savior from afar
and observing the glory of the Morning Star,
would focus my attention solely on Him
and stir my spirit to sing eternal hymns.
For just one day, I’d like a peek of Paradise –
For carrying those images would surely suffice.
