Complexities of Life

I have little knowledge of things that went before
When this old world was new and none of us were born
From what I can surmise and all that I have read
The evolution side is based on info that is dead

When Darwin wrote his book his knowledge was quite dim
We’ve learned so many things that show His logic thin
When looking at the marvels and complexities of life
There must be a creator is all we can surmise 

This wondetful creator says His Son will give us life
God sent him to this world to become our sacrifice
If we ask forgiveness our sins are washed away
His Spirit then will show us He’s the truth,  the light,  the way

Once Upon A Time

I once had sorrow then joy filled my heart
I once had troubles then peace stilled the storm
I once was doubtful then faith came along
My life is not what it once was

Once upon a time I was lost
Wondering if I would survive
Then Jesus came in
He took all my sin
Now I am free and alive

I once was bound up then hope brought me out
I once was fearful then love brought a shout
I once had weakness them He gave me strength
Now my life rests in Him

Once upon a time I was useless
Nothing of good came from me
Then Jesus did call
Now I give my all
To be what He made me to be

No more will I go drifting
No more will I live in fear
No more will I be doubting
Jesus is all I need

Once upon a time I was lost
Wondering if I would survive
Then Jesus came in
He took all my sin
Now I am free and alive

Once upon a time I was useless
Nothing of good came from me
Then Jesus did call
Now I give my all
To be what He made me to be

The Clouds Will Part

I had a premonition
It was not intuition
It was a thought that filled my soul and mind
That sooner than we think
In time that’s just a blink
The clouds will part and startle all mankind

Jesus will come calling
For all His faithful followers
To join Him in the heaven’s up above
Have you made Him your Savior
Have you made Him Lord forever
Please ask forgiveness now
Make Him the Lord of all
Then you will join the faithful in the clouds

Guiding Light

For such a time as this
I was born into this world
To write this little poem God gave to me
Then also in this time
He brought you to this place
That you would read these words that God has breathed

Our Father calls to you
From deep within your soul
Asking you to make His plan fulfilled
His love is so immense
His compassion so intense
He gave us life to carry out His will

Do justly love mercy
Walk humbly with your God
That is what our Lord requires of you
It may sound rather simple
But it takes all of our days
Do learn what these words ask us all to do

Ask the Lord today
His wisdom to impart
That you would know all he wants you to do
To carry out these things
Make a difference in this world
As His word becomes alive all over you

It is no coincidence
That you have read these words
The Lord has given me this day to write
Do justly love mercy
Walk humbly with your God
Let these three things become your guiding light

 

Miscolored

Purple trees against a green sky
Polka dot clouds passing by
Red grass covers the ground
A barking dog makes not a sound

I float above the ground so light
My arms spread out and I take flight
Above the tallest mushrooms soar
The alligators cheer and roar

Is this my imagination
Or unfettered fascination
With things that just can’t be
Things I know I’ll never see

But in this world where truth is rare
There is one truth that I can share
Jesus love you this I know
For the bible tells me so

Unlimited

Power that nobody else can gain
Wisdom that nobody else can attain
Mercy that forgives again and again
Unlimited is our God

Joy that will fill me when troubles arise
Peace that will come when the storm clouds rise
Hope that will carry me all of my life
Unlimited is our God

Unlimited are His days
Unlimited is His grace
All that I need
He gives to me
He is unlimited

There is no measure there is no end
There is no boundary stopping His hand
When God is for me no harm can stand
Unlimited is our God

Unlimited are His days
Unlimited is His grace
All that I need
He gives to me
He is unlimited

Then there’s His love
Unlimited love
That reached to a sinner like me
He suffered so much
Than died on a cross
Unlimited love set me free

Unlimited are His days
Unlimited is His grace
All that I need
He gives to me
He is unlimited

Groupies of Nature

A gaggle of geese
A Flock of doves
A battery of barracudas

A swarm of bees
A herd of sheep
Leopards group in leaps

A host of sparrows
A buzzard wake
Alligators congregate

All these critters
Made by God
Creator of all things
Spoke the Word
Jesus Christ
He’s the King of Kings

All these critters
Give Him praise
Every single day
Should not we
The man He loves
Lift His holy name

Hunters, Crabs and Bears, Oh My

I have seen the big and little dog
I have seen the hunter’s belt
I’ve seen the crab and the ram
The twins were there as well

Shining high above the sky
In all their astral beauty
I look up and behold their light
I listen to their story

They tell of a creator
Who placed them one by one
They tell of His great glory
They tell me of God’s son

He came down from the heaven’s
To redeem us from our sin
The next time you see that bear
I pray you’ll follow Him

Be Still

Silently I come before you
Listening for the Spirit’s call
Seeking you in humble reverence
Giving you my heart and soul

Lord I want to draw in closer
Have you whisper in my ear
Feel your presence as I linger
Bringing you my heartfelt prayer

Being still before you
To know that you are God
I come to thee
Silently
Listening for your love

Now I wait in expectation
Knowing you will honor faith
Patiently I bow before you
Your voice I anticipate

Being still before you
To know that you are God
I come to thee
Silently
Listening for your love

I long to hear your voice
I long to see your face
I look up and rejoice
To you I lift my praise

Being still before you
To know that you are God
I come to thee
Silently
Listening for your love

Learning to Speak

I love tell my story
Of what my life has brought
I’ve learned to speak to people
Things Toastmasters has taught

This learning brought me knowledge
In nearly everything
I have become conversant
When topics people bring

The subject I enjoy the most
Is of my Saviors love
How even when my sin was huge
He loved me from above

He came to earth so long ago
Became my sacrifice
Now I can have His peace and joy
He gives eternal life

I’ll tell you that you too can know
This precious love He gives
Just ask Him to forgive your sins
Then you as well shall live
