A New Catch

When I was a kid, the water

Was one place I liked to play

Catching bullfrogs, skippping rocks

Was how we spect our day

 

And one more thing consumed our time

And sent us ’round the town

The thirll of catching one big fish

That I could call my own.

 

Iit wasn’t easy work too do

Those fish would fight real hard

To be quite honest, I was not

A fishermann at heart..

 

So fishing is a memory

That I don’t live today

The thought of stannding, waiting

Just doesn’t make my day.

 

However there’s anothe kind

Of fishing that I know

This kind is something I  can do

Wherever I might go

 

Jesus came to save me

And to set me free indeed

But He alos had a plan for me

To help find those in need.

 

He said I’d be a fisherman

The lost would be the catch

So now I fish ’bout every day

And hope someone to bless

Don’t Get Burned

I love to camp in the summer

And cook on the open flames

The food is so delightful

When we cook that way

 

Once in a while I’ll slip up

And get too close to the fire

I feel the heat on my hand

And I know that’s not my desire

 

I just can’t imagine the suffering

Of eternity spent in Hell

The heat of those flames unceasing

For all who who missed Christ and fell

 

So today put your trust in Jesus

And ask Him into your heart

Avoid the flames of that fire

And make a brand new start

I’m Not Into That!

I’m not really into digital

Or even much on vegetal

They just seem to leave my mind at such a loss

But I am into Jesus Christ my Lord

For He is the one that I adore

He freed me from sin forever at such a cost

For He gave His life at Calvary

To make away for you and me

To share in His soul salvation for all time

So please won’t you ask Him in today

He’ll hear you when you humbly pray

And you will make heaven yours with eternal life

Wonder or Wander?

When I was young I’d wander

Through life with little hope

The many days I squandered

Kept me on a slippery slope

 

My soul was caught in trouble

My mind was bent on fun

I sought drink on the double

I thought my days were done

 

I had no cares of future

I partied day and night

Then I became a searcher

And wandered toward the Light

 

The Light, I learned, was Jesus

I learned He died for me

I asked Him for forgiveness

From sin, I was set free

 

Now I wonder at His mercy

I marvel at His grace

One day to heav’n He’ll take me

And I will see His face

 

From wandering to wondering

This change brought peace and joy

There is no more meandering

My life I now enjoy

 

fI you are wondering through life

And wonder what to do

Why not give Him all your strife

And new life He’ll give you?

I Just Want To Thank You

I just want to thank you

For all you’ve done for me

I wouldn’t be alive without you

I just want to thank you

For your great love for me

You loved me before I knew you

 

You give me air to breath

And light so I can see

You keep me on the ground with gravity

You keep my heart beating

You keep my lungs breathing

You keep my body functioning

 

You place beauty everywhere

Like birds up in the air

They fly majestically everywhere

The trees are beautiful

The sky with clouds are full

The sun comes up and sets as usual

 

I just want to thank you

For all you’ve done for me

I wouldn’t be alive without you

I just want to thank you

For your great love for me

You loved me before I knew you

 

And then you sent your Son

Your one and only Son

To come and share your love for me

He taught the masses truth

From elderly to youth

He taught us how think and how to be

 

And then He gave His life

Became my sacrifice

And from my sin I was set free

He died to conquer sin

And He rose from death again

To give me life eternally

 

I just want to thank you

For all you’ve done for me

I wouldn’t be alive without you

I just want to thank you

For your great love for me

You loved me before I knew you

I Fixed My Thinking!

I thought once about all of my sin

And the life I was living so fast

That first time I chose not to change

Anything that I’d done in the past

 

But upon second thought, I decided

That hell ws not taking my life

So I fell on my knees before Jesus

And I asked His forgiveness that night

 

He washed my sins whiter than snow

And now Heaven’s my home for all time

There’s no second thoughts in me now

I’m blessed in my Savior divine

 

 

In response to the daily prompt Second Thoughts

Glad Your Still Reading

To some it may be irksome

That to the daily prompt

I post about my Savior Jesus Christ

If I was still without Him

And I would read the lines

I think I’d start to skip these posts of mine

 

But I cannot obstain

From  proclaiming His dear name

At every chance I’m given in this life

So  though it may irk some

If I can reach just one

I’ll mention His salvation every time
