“I FORGIVE YOU TODAY”

It was truly more than a chance meeting,
It was something that needed not to be.
But today I heard a voice call out to me,
When through my tears I could not see.

I had truly become a total embarrassment,
Not a single promise could I really keep.
And while the guilt of sin embraced me,
I found this night I could no longer sleep

I was blinded by sin’s running essence,
With my faith now as low as it could be.
I was drowning in my continued sadness,
Wanting this hopeless feeling to fade away.

If I could only lift myself from the ground,
And by my own strength again stand tall.
But my own selfishness made me powerless,
No longer having any hope in my life at all.

I could not even see a step in front of me,
And the pressure inside was very crushing.
A dread feeling I now felt embracing me,
While from me my life seem to be rushing.

My once strong heart seemed about to topple,
Would I now finally turn answering the call?
As I heard the voice once again call my name,
Saying come to me and you’ll no longer fall.

Still at that moment I felt so very worthless,
I turned toward where the voice came from.
In a down pour of my souls crushing guilt,
By His mercy and grace my salvation is won.

I wondered why You never gave up on me,
Why from me You had never turned away,
Many times I turned away from your call,
Not deserving your great mercy in any way.

My Lord I’m not worthy to come to You today
As I am an embarrassment in many ways.
Yet as I spoke I felt His arms embrace me,
Saying, yes my son, but I forgive you today.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Matt 6:14-15
For if you forgive other people when they sin
against you, your heavenly Father will also
forgive you.

Col:1:13-14
For he has rescued us from the dominion of
darkness and brought us into the kingdom of
the Son he loves, in whom we have redemption,
the forgiveness of sins.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
As I read many blogs today, I felt many wanting
to reach out to God, but seemed so hesitant. There
will come a time when one lets self go, and they
will find a genuine spiritual joy blossom within.
This was written back in November 1976…the
moment was life-changing! I wanted to share it
tonight for those who might want to take that
Next step. God bless!

EVER THANKFUL

As this morning calls my eyes to open
Leaving me to feel your joyful presence
You lift my mind into very high places
As my heart is embraced by Your love

It gave birth to a million radiant smiles
And just as many blushing childish grins
While the first thing that came to mind
Was to thank You for letting me live again

And I could hear the soft gentle pattering
On my window as the rain began to fall
And even as its voice was speaking clearly
I could hear the blessing of Your loves call

And as all living things began their dance
Joined together their voices rose up to pray
Happily thanking you for another chance
To send out from their hearts sweet praise

I thank you, this morning for the reminder
Which always assures me Your spirit will stay
No matter whether one is truly good or bad
You give many of us another chance today

My heart joyfully embraces many thoughts
Bringing spiritual melodies to rise as I pray
Combining with my spirit, they birth a psalm
Thanking You Lord, for another chance today

To seek you again with open hearts and arms
Again feeling the spirits hunger growing inside
As we bathe anew in your sweet blessing of love
Realizing last night Lord, we could have died.

My Eternal Love And Restful Peace

They said all I did was make-believe
That I had never risen from the grave
They said all was made up only a ruse
That it all was just lies and a charade

They said I was never really executed
Never by their hands placed on trial
All of it was just a lie and a hoax
A real piece of fiction all the while

They wanted believers not to believe
That I was the one prophesied to come
Who would bring victory to this world
And over death to taste victory won

I was born of a virgin into this world
Sent down from the heavenly God above
By choice offering myself as a sacrifice
For all humans, whom I created and loved

I walked this earth among many peoples
Carrying a true message across the lands
The Holy Spirit prophesied my coming and
Bringing many faithful ones to understand

That there is a genuine new beginning
For those who believe what the spirit says
Through faith in Me, there will be life
In new spiritual bodies when the flesh is dead

I spoke a living word which did heal
The sick and those who lived in pain
And as their spirits tasted of my bread
Their lives were never again the same

Among ones who should have been holy
Caiphas, and the Chief priests alike
They spread words of rumor and untruths
That the miracles I accomplished were lies

They saw what they built among men
Was destined one day to surely fall
So to save their positions in society
From their mouths, they sent out a call

Herod sent Me to Pilate governor of Judea
Asking for help from these Romans too
Wanting to try me, sentencing me to death
Hoping many would not accept my truth…

They were guided by the love of worldly riches
Promised by a fallen evil one who sought to be King
They sided with one who ended up the biggest loser
Who is destined one day to taste a hellish destiny

And when they put me on trial for all to see
They said all which I did and say was a lie
And if they would put me to death real soon
With my demise, the rumors would surely die

But as they hung me that afternoon on a tree
With two others next to me sharing the same fate
The clouds became dark and storms filled the sky
They heard me pray, Father forgive them this day

Some who believed among many unbelievers
Took my body, laying it in a brand new tomb
After three days and nights had come to past
The leaders found the rumors they heard to be true

For though I laid in the ground for three days
And my body should have begun to rot and stink
Those who guarded my tomb and the godless soon
Had many real things on their minds to think

For my body had risen as it was prophesied
And from deaths power I took away, the sting
And I am now alive in a new spiritual body
Having risen to share with believers eternity

Now thousands are saved each and every day
Who now reach out calling upon my sweet name
And Satan has lost the battle ending his power
Now destined to suffer in hell’s burning flames

For the real truth now overcame all the rumors
While all their lies also found their death
And I am alive, welcoming all faithful believers
Into my eternal heavenly love and precious rest.
(2010) A Re-blog

Psalm 30; 4-5

Sing praises of the LORD, you who are faithful

faithful to him. Praise him, because his name

is holy.  His anger lasts for only a moment.

But his favor lasts for a person’s whole life.

Weeping can stay for the night.  But joy comes

In the morning

May every ones Easter Sunday be amazingly blessed!

SEEK TO SERVE

Tags

, , , , , , ,

 

I will live each day of my life to God
As if each days ending will be my last
I’ll give a taste of His bliss to others
So each day they become very blessed

I will seek ways to give special treasures
Those spiritual blessings I know will heal
That I may deliver His word of healing
Which brings about in lives something ideal

Many run after this worlds riches each day
On a road far from lasting spiritual gems
Chasing worldly prizes which soon fade away
Not realizing true riches come from only One

Many each day worry about what might come
As they venture out without One who protects
Not realizing life can easily be taken away
While they desire promises of one who rejects

Know you are created of flesh and spirit
Look around and see many who are taken away
Who may have passed on several opportunities
To receive His promised spiritual gift today

Humble self and seek out to serve the Lord
Gain the gift of daily blossoming change
Believe in the peace and love He brings to us
And all you have to do is believe in His name.

(January 2018)
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Galatians 5:13
You, my brothers and sisters, we’re called to be
free. But do not use your freedom to indulge the
flesh; rather, serve one another humbly in love.

Hebrews 6:10
God is not unjust; he will not forget your
work and the love you have shown him as
you have helped his people and continue to
help them.

He Will Change You

Tags

, , ,

 

Can you understand what you have become

Because of the worldly diet daily you feed upon

As you feed your spirit food that will not last

Which each morning you find is always gone

 

You choose to feed upon many worldly desires

Which will never  satisfy your living spirit within

Though you want so much to change your life

Deep in yourself, you don’t know how to begin

 

You became spiritually bankrupt in your lives

And each new day nothing seems to change

As you choose to serve many worldly spirits

Life’s true light you fail to embrace His name

 

He’s the One who daily calls out to your spirit

With His grace and power, he’ll help you change

For the Lord is the only one who is able to create

A  very desirable, profitable and lasting change

 

So when you awaken each day feeling empty

Not knowing what you should really attempt to do

Feed yourself the living bread of our shepherd 

And with His spiritual power, He will change you

 

Believing in Christ will set you free from worldly desires.

 

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Isaiah 55:11 (NIRV)

The words I speak are like that. They will not return

without producing results.  They will accomplish what

I want them to.  They will do exactly what I sent them

to do.

This Morning

Tags

, , , , ,

This morning as I opened my eyes

I felt within such an unspeakable joy

Rising with a new song coming to life 

Which in my heart I sought to employ

 

Lord, you reminded me at that moment

With the blessing of your living word

I embraced your loves awesome power

I knew my praise needed to be heard

 

You alone chose this daily mission for me

Because of the selfless love You did see

You know I have no fear in sharing words

Of my deep love, Lord I have inside for thee

 

For in this dark world I want many to know

The path of life that many may choose today

Going forward without worldly fear within

For our Lord will surely show you the way. 

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

It is the Lord your God you must follow, and him
you must revere.  Keep his commands and obey;
him; serve him and hold fast to him.
Deut:13:4

THE KINDNESS ONE RECEIVES FROM YOU

IS A REAL TREASURE WHICH ALWAYS STAYS

LIKE A BEAUTIFUL PRICELESS FLOWER

WORTH MORE THAN DIAMONDS AND GOLD

FOR YOUR SMILES HAVE A TOUCH OF HEAVEN

WHOSE VALUE I PRAY ALWAYS FILLS OUR DAYS.

“Your Spiritual Beauty”

Tags

, , , , ,

Your beauty’s memory lives within me

As lovely thoughts of you sweep me away

Your truly amazing and loving personality 

Daily captivates my heart in many new ways

 

Over the years lord, I have come to know

It is You alone my heart and spirit belong to 

It fulfilled a promise you have made to me

I will never live a single day without you

 

 

You blessed my life with favor and protection

From loneliness, your spirit has set me free

When you chose me a nobody to serve you

To praise you with psalms that provide keys

 

The ears of many faithful with seeking hearts

Will embrace daily what the holy spirit provides

So your living word might bless those who seek

Your light of life providing daily blessings inside.

Psalm 119:105 

Your word is a lamp for my feet, a lamp on my path.

Matt 5:16

In the same way, let your light shine before others

That they may see your good deeds and glorify your

Father in heaven.

You Awaken My Spirit Daily

Tags

, , , , ,

My Lord you have awaken my spirit

Bringing a hunger for spiritual things

You taken away my worldly blindness

That each new day tries to hinder me

 

You opened my heart and my spirit

To understand I truly belong to you

Realizing I would never serve another

That only to you my love remains true

 

You opened my eyes each new morning

Allowing on your living word I can feed

Showing me in my life the spiritual food

Which night and day I will always need

 

Nothing in this world has much value 

As all things in this world will soon fade.

But those who seek to serve you will find

A true spiritual treasure which will stay

 

My Lord, I did not choose to serve you

Yet it was you Lord who chose me today

Inspiring me to share with many others

Your true wisdom and peace that stays 

 

You showed me the true path to travel

The one which will enrich my life always

Learning in my service alone to you Lord

Is where my true spiritual treasure lays

 

While leading others to find the only way

To you my Lord and true everlasting life

I will remain true in my spirit to you lord  

While selflessly sharing your life’s light.

I Must Be Falling In Love

Tags

, , , ,

My darling your smile haunts my dreams

Never will this haunting ever subside

Your eyes found a home in my thoughts

Where their image happily comes alive

 

I now seek the true cause and the reason

Which makes this to happen each new day

Why it is so true no matter what I try to do

These visions of you will never go away

 

They have begun to cause me a problem

Finding now I have no true appetite to eat

Even now realizing soon after darkness comes

Its very hard now for my heart to fall asleep

 

Finding your smile easily embraces my thoughts

Your lovely brown eyes are all I daydream of

I simply reason why each day this now happens…

“It can only be that I am truly falling in love!

(April 1977)
