Hidden Faults

I’ve seen them wearing their strange clothes
That just don’t cover up at all
It seems they want to flaunt their stuff
And don’t care if it’s just too much

I’m not one to be so sensuous
As to wear something diaphanous
That’s a sight you would not want to see
Some things just should not be revealed

But when it comes to pleasing God
I want to be searched by His word
It can reveal my hidden faults
And help me see where I am lost

His word is like a sword you see
Dividing up what’s inside me
It sees right through my pride and sin
Revealing what lies deep within

Fake News

This world is full of guessing
What the truth is and is not
The news around the world
Seems often to be bought

Two sides that can’t agree
On what course they should take
Makes for a lot of wordplay
That makes the truth seem fake

There’s one thing that I know
Will always speak the truth
That is the Holy Bible
God’s Word to me and you

It tells me Jesus came earth
And gave His life away
A sacrifice for all my sins
So He could make a way

No oversimplification
Is in these words today
If you will ask forgiveness
You too will find the way

His way is to eternal life
With Peace and joy for you
The fake news that appears down here
Gives way to God’s good news

My Inspiration

I once had friends who partied long
And I was glad to join them
Without a care
My life was there
From day to day we lived a whim

When trouble came to our small town
I was guilty by association
Everyone knew
Me and my crew
Were lost in our imagination

Today I’ve put aside these ways
My life is full of Jesus
I praise His name
I’m not the same
I know that He’s my Savior

When people see me know
There is association
With things of God
And of His word
He is my inspiration

New Blog Coming Soon

Hello to all my fellow bloggers. Many of you know that I have been working on a book that is entitled The A.S.K. Principle. I blogged about this topic extensively a few months ago on my other blog site called God’s Maintenance Man. I am now going to bring it back on a separate blog. I’m doing this because the book is now in full swing and is at the editors at this time. The publisher that I’m working through also suggest that I blog about the book to enable everyone to be more informed.

I will be sharing with you thoughts behind the book, how the publishing is progressing and excerpts from the book. There will also be posts about prayer and answered prayers. I pray this will be a blessing to you and will build your faith as we go along.

I have no plan as to what days or how often I will be posting on this site. Most of the posts will probably be simple and not very long so I might update it more often. In any case I hope you will follow alonmn take a closer look at prayer and how it works in our lives.

I thank you for following this bloh.. it is a pleasure to be able to give you what God gives to me in poems. I only speak and write what He tells me to. So I can never tell you how long it will be between posts but the Psalmist blog will continue as is

Be blessed my friends

His Word Testifies

There are many who think God’s a myth

That His word is just a story book

Their suspicious when I testify

But refuse to take second look

If they’d just take a little time

With a heart that wants to know

Reading through His Word would touch their lives

Bit by bit their faith would grow

Because I know His word is true

It speaks only to our hearts

Anyone who’s open to the truth

Will soon have a hrand new start

Take a minute now to tell us all

In the comnents down below

How you found Jesus as your Lord

How His truth you came to know

And if you do not call Him Lord

Leave a note to tell us why

Then please take some time to read the Word

Your suspicions may just die

In response to the daily prompt Suspicious

Have You Been?

Have you been to the manger where He was born
Where shepherds and wise men worshipped the Lord
He came from His throne up in heaven above
To become a man and show us His love

Have you been to the river, Jordan’s the name
Where John was baptizing so many that day
When Jesus came to be baptize
The Father spoke up and said I’m pleased with Him

Have you been to the mountain of Olives to hear
The sermon of Jesus that challenged your ear
He spoke with authority as the crowd heard
How they could show love through the pow’r of the word

Have you been to the tomb where Lazarus lay
He was buried and gone for over four days
Yet He came back to life when Jesus had prayed
He walked out of the tomb and gave God the praise

Have you been to Gethsemane’s garden at night
The shadows are deep in the soft pale moonlight
It is here Jesus prayed not my will but thine
As disciples slept close by not liking the time

Have you been to the cross where He suffered for you
I can’t imagine the pain He endured
In agony He cried forgive them today
Then He gave His life freely and died

The sepulcher waited, the stone closed the door
But nothing could hold down my Savior and Lord
Three days later He rose, the victory won
Have you tasted His love
Have you asked Him to come
Into your heart to save you today
If you desire heaven there’s no other way

You say I can’t go there it’s too far away
I tell you I visit them every day
Just open your Bible and read of these things
Day after day new faith it will bring

Do You Understand?

In high school I took languages
French and Spanish you know
Today I may still know some words
But to translate I’d be a no show

Now I can open my Bible
I read the words of my Lord
And His Spirit helps me to know
What blessings He has in store

I do not need a translator
To know what He has to say
Because He is living inside me
He speaks to me every day

In response to the daily prompt Translate

Open Up Your Bible

I opened up my Bible
To see what I could find
It was then I realized
It’s a virtual gold mine

When I look into the scripture
And I take the time to read
I can find the answer
To all my earthly needs

If I need a touch from Him
And health is what I lack
His word says He has healed me
By the stripes upon His back

If I need some comfort
For the hurts that life can bring
His word says He will give me joy
So much that I will sing

If trouble does surround me
And I never feel at ease
He says He’ll come and walk with me
And leave me with His peace

No matter what the problem
That plagues me day to day
His word will have my answer
And guide me on my way

So, open up your Bible
Take time to fully see
His blessings are all written down
They’re yours if you believe
