1 What shall we say then? Are we to
continue in sin that grace may abound?
2 By no means! How can we who died to
sin still live in it?
3 Do you not know that all of us who
have been baptized into Christ Jesus
were baptized into his death?
4 We were buried therefore with him
by baptism into death, in order that,
just as Christ was raised from the
dead by the glory of the Father,
we too might walk in newness of life.
Thanks for all the blessings
that you send my way each day
Thanks for all the good things
that you placed in my world to stay
Thanks for all the prayers dear Lord
that you answer right on time
Even if they were only answered
because of your heavenly design
Thank you, Lord, for the chance
and for opening my eyes to see
That there is no other God living
who the Father of Christ may be
Thank you, Lord, for choosing me
that I may truly understand
Why it is very wonderful to be
guided in my life by your hand.
Psalm 139: 7-12
Where can I go from your Spirit?
Where can I flee from your presence?
If I go up to the heavens, you are there;
if I make my bed in the depths, you are there.
If I rise on the wings of the dawn,
if I settle on the far side of the sea,
even there your hand will guide me,
your right hand will hold me fast.
If I say, “Surely the darkness will hide me
and the light become night around me,”
even the darkness will not be dark to you;
the night will shine like the day,
for darkness is as light to you.
“For the Lord, your God is living among
you. He is a mighty savior. He will
take delight in you with gladness.
With his love, he will calm all your
fears. He will rejoice over you with
Hold on to the Holy Spirit’s treasure
The priceless gems many cannot see
Cling to these pearls of great worth
Its treasure will increase your faith in me
Simply accept and receive my promises
Just accept my Living Word as it is read
And the Holy Spirit will open your mind
To understand all the truths I’ve said
Embrace the commandments I left you
And from them never a day turn away
You’ll find many times in your daily life
These gems will bring a peace that stays
Just hold on to this valuable treasure
Which many among you fail to believe
Embrace my pure unblemished Holy word
As its the best treasure there will be.
For the word of God is alive and active.
Sharper than any double-edged sword, it
penetrates even to dividing soul and spirit,
joints and marrow; it judges the thoughts
and attitudes of the heart.
The Word gave life to everything that was
created, and his life brought light to
I was born into a world of
flesh, that I thought would
last, but that was only one
of his many lies
I believed that I had The power to
control my own destiny and that
death was only a dream and that
too was one of his favorite tales
And as I grew older, your word
would try to lead me down the
right paths, yet he would
always be there to entice me
with all types of worldly
pleasures which he promised
would be mine forever
And yet one day I heard a soft
assuring word, and went to
investigate its true meaning
and though I found it was spoken
by a man, it seemed to gently
embrace my heart
It spoke to me this living word
and as I embraced it in return
I was left amazed by this promising
For even though it condemned me
deeply to the very marrow within
my bones, and though I was confused
for a few days, this word just seemed
to grow, it grew stronger and stronger
and stronger, so very deep within my
heart and spirit
And I begin to see so many changes to my
world and the very true realization came
that the world of flesh, would not last as
he had said, that all the material things
would fade away, but the Lords word would
always stand forever
And the demon came back to me and tried to
offer me a bigger share of his pie, and
I told him it was not his to give For the
word had spoken to me with His truth,
saying it belongs only to the holy Father
in heaven, and in His word, I could always
And I found that the ruler of this world to be
so counterfeit and that his destiny was to die
in hell and I believed the living word turning
to him who alone can destroy, the body, the spirit,
and the total essence of we, of flesh, and so
now I belong to Him, daily nourishing upon His
word each day
And I find I am saved by him, only because I
believed he would do what he has promised
for our God, he never changes and by absolute
necessity I find that as my body surely dies
each day, my spirit’s life increases and is
assured a place after my passing from this
world for He has risen and defeated death for
all believers and is alive at the right hand
of His Father.

As for God, His way is perfect; The word of the
Lord is proven; He is a shield to all who trust
For You will light my lamp; The Lord my God will

to all who trust in Him. For who is God, except
the Lord? And who is a rock except our God?
