The Right Course

I can run out of gas
I can run out of food
I can run out of time
I can spend like a fool

I can use all my senses
And lose them as well
I can waste this great life
And go straight to hell

But I cannot deplete the love of God
He has so much grace for me
When I think all His lost
He says I paid the cost
His great love has set me free

Lord, help me to lose my own life
So that I can start living yours
Because this life is like a vapor
I want to be on the right course



In response to the daily prompt Deplete


Grass dusted with dew
Dawn coming in view
Stars glittering bright
Moon absent from light

Birds greeting the day
Leaves falling like rain
Breeze gentle and cool
Freeze coming real soon

Marvel at His creation
Wonder that’s ever-changing
One day differs from others
All as a gift from the author

Precious each passing moment
Our job to be a witness
All who love this creation
Need to know their situation

Heaven or hell does await them
Their choice determines the outcome
Choose Christ and His wondrous mercy
Or fall to the depths of pure misery

He’ll make you a new creation
When you give Him your life without caution
Repent of your sin
Ask Jesus in
He’ll build you a mansion in heaven

Marvel at His creation
He’s made you an heir to His glory
Love, peace, joy and hope
Will fill up your home
As you tell His marvelous story

Make The Right Call

He beckons me out of my slumber
He speaks in His soft, gentle voice
Write the words that are settled within you
Let the world know that they have a choice

I thought for a minute about this
Then I picked up my paper and pen
I knew what the message would be like
I knew there’s a choice in the end

He tells us in plain, simple language
That it’s heaven or hell for us all
Each of us has a decision
I hope that you make the right call

You can follow your own path as always
Ignoring the warnings of God
Refusing to know His sweet mercy
And the price His Son paid at the cross

We are all born with sin in our system
That seed was placed long ago
And sin will not make it to heaven
It can only be covered by blood

God sent His Son to redeem us
From the curse of sin we all acquired
Accepted His blood as our ransom
Is the remedy that God required

So today you have a decision
If Jesus is not in your heart
You can ask Him in and gain heaven
Orr from God you’ll forever depart

I put down my pen and I pondered
These words that he spoke to my heart
Then I once more asked Him to forgive me
For the times I had not done my part

He longs for us all to come to Him
Free from sin by the work of His Son
So accept Him today
And you’ll find the way
To make heaven your eternal home

In The End

I can’t imagine how I would feel
If  I didn’t know where I would go
There’s eternal bliss in heaven above
Or fire and torture below

There’s a way you can know where you will go
So you won’t have to be nervous again
Make Jesus your Lord by asking Him in
And in heaven you’ll be in the end


In response to the daily prompt Nervous

For All Eternity

My life was such a mess back then
I gave death little thought
I always lived my life down here
Like I didn’t give a squat

But then I learned there was a hell
And it was not for me
I didn’t want to burn down there
For all eternity

So I accepted Christ as Lord
And the price He paid for me
And I will live in heaven above
For all eternity

In response to the daily prompt Squat

One Good Choice

Many will say their life is just fine
And I think that’s terrific
But when they talk about what comes next
They don’t get too specific

Some say maybe heaven’s for me
Others think a party in hell
Some say they will just rot in the ground
And some just cannot tell

I’d like to get real specific today
There is only one good choice to make
Accept Jesus Christ and heaven’s your home
If not, then in hell you will bake



In response to the daily prompt Specific

Unthinkable Stink!

If you had a choice

To have one simple smell

That would be with you for all time

Would you choose something pungent

That makes you quite sick

Or a sweet smelling savor divine?


I’m here to tell you

You do have that choice

It must be made while you’re alive

Because hell is a place

Of unthinkable stink

While heaven has scents so sublime


To avoid the bad stink

And eternity’s flames

One choice is all you must make

Accept Jesus Christ

As Lord of your life

And you’ll pass through those heavenly gates





In response to the daily prompt Pungent

Which Way?

When it comes to heaven or hell

It is not really easy to tell

Which ones will be going

Without really knowing

Who sits on the liminal wall


You see you can’t sit in between

And hope to make heaven your scene

If Jesus is Lord

Then Heaven is yours

So make sure from sin you are clean


His blood washes whiter than snow

If you ask Him in you will know

He wil set you free

From sin’s dread disease

And Heaven will be your new home



In response to the daily promptLiminal

Avoiding The Fire

I have to admit, I’m a sinner

I’ll never be perfect down here

Try hard as I can

I never will stand

As a sinless man, that’s for sure


But I made a choice long ago

To avoid being scorched for all time

I asked Jesus in

And He covered my sin

Now heavens my home for all time


I am sure that you don’t intend

To burn in hell when your life ends

Why not ask Him today

To take your sins away

And you can have peace in the end


In  response to the daily prompt Scorched

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
