And Yet His Hand

DownUp 0

Despite the trials of this earthly world
and the continued foolishness of men,
God wants His Principles completely unfurled –
For He loves His Children, while hating sin.

His anger is not turned away
and yet His Hand is outstretched still.
Our Salvation awaits its appointed day
with the meshing of our spirits to His Will.

As long as we continue to breathe,
there’s Hope for us to loving cleave;
He’s promised that His Spirit will never leave –
So open your heart now… and simply believe.

Lot’s Wife

DownUp 0

Not wanting to be rescued
from the twin, sin cities,
she’s unwillingly led away
by a man she barely loves and pities.

Unable to follow God’s direction
and her husband’s leadership,
she succumbs to her heart’s lust
for a final look, as the horizon dips.

Governed by Jezebel’s spirit,
having forgotten that Jehovah honors His Word,
she’s transformed into a pillar of salt
for a life no longer preserved.

Fighting tears from losing his wife
Lot takes careful steps backwards,
to gaze on her form one last time
before with a new life going forward.

Cleanse Me Lord

DownUp 0

Oh, my Lord…

Once again I’m dirty with sin.
I need to cleanse my fallen mind
with the beauty of your Word.

My desire is turned towards You –
Yet my flesh remains weak,
reflecting a lack of discipline.

Please chastise me, your child
and spare not your rod of correction.
Cover me with your forgiveness and grace
as I begin anew each day, trying to mature.

Oh, my Lord… please cleanse me.

Game Theory

DownUp 0

In Life’s matrix of possibilities,
outcomes can be reduced to an array –
For the mixture of cursing and blessing correlates
directly to choices not carefully weighed.

With God on one axis
and Satan on the other,
challenges from many of Life’s trials
have various payouts, from one cell to another.

From the earthly consequences,
which are the result of our actions,
we’re ultimately responsible
and not saved by divine intervention.

Avoiding the repetitions of mistakes
until we learn to properly play,
requires heed to spiritual instruction –
For our Salvation awaits the day.

When it comes to being Godly people,
let us not grow weak and weary;
within our grasp is a winning strategy
that supersedes this World’s… game theory.

My Soul Now Sings

DownUp 0

My invisible scars
are plain for anyone to see,
as I blindly journey on…
This path of Christianity.

Wanting deliberate faith
ready on my tongue,
I received God’s Salvation
when I was dumb and young.

Inflicted wounds to my soul
from a lack of understanding
have been healed by the Power
of Christ’s personal anointing.

I am worth dying for
according to His Word;
The Lamb’s wondrous sacrifice
had sin to Himself transferred.

Now my soul graciously sings
with overflowing joy!
For redemption has been granted
to this formerly, lost boy.

Standard of Cooperation

DownUp 0

A simple army of ants
in silent cooperation and unity,
quickly work side-by-side –
Setting an example for humanity.

From Scriptural advice
we’re instructed to observe
the behavior of these insects
and see value from learning to serve.

Achieving the colony’s purpose
and focusing on its common mission,
labor is given for the greater good
via its natural instinct of unison.

For much can be accomplished
from sharing like mindedness
whenever the unified Body reaches…
Towards Jehovah’s divine holiness.

As a Joint Heir with Thee

DownUp 0

What a blessing it would be
as a joint heir with thee,
sharing the Father’s affection
for the numerous days of eternity!

What a honor you’ve bestowed upon me
as a joint heir with thee,
being adopted by the universal King
and connected to the divine, family tree.

What a grand responsibility
as a joint heir with thee,
proclaiming your name and love
to the World’s expanse of humanity.

Waiting on You

DownUp 0

When floating in the sea of despair,
never give up hope, for the Lord is already there.
For in the time of your darkest hour,
you can tap into His Dunamis power.
Addressing Earth’s challenges requires a key –
As a child of His, you must yourself see.
To assure that your earnest prayers are heard,
you need to hide in your heart His Holy Word.
For out of your mouth, His Word you should speak,
which demonstrates that Him you truly seek.
For God’s desire is to help you through,
but He is still… waiting on you.

Avoiding Hell?

DownUp 0

Have you sealed your fate
with the rejection of Him?
Accept Christ now
before your life wears thin.

For in permanent separation
there’s no God or peace –
Only continual torment and anguish
without any comfort or release.

Alone in the dark
as fallen angels without light,
you too will become a demon creature
lacking hope of spiritual sight.

Forget about Purgatory,
but make a decision today –
avoiding Hell can be done,
for Christ is the Life, Truth and Way.

The Cross, Stark and Still

DownUp 0

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.
