It’s His Time Now

I must admit that I don’t give

My time away a lot

There’s only so much in a day

I treasure all I’ve got

 

Invitations come and go

To volunteer my aid

But mostly I just pass them up

To do things that will pay

 

But when I was asked by Jesus

To volunteer for Him

I looked at that he offered me

A and found out it’s all win

 

He starts by taking sin away

And filled me with His love

Then He gave eternal life

When He rose up above

 

He gave me peace and joy and hope

He caused me to rejoice

So now I’ll volunteer each time

He calls me with His voice

 

 

 

 

In respnse to the daily prompt Volunteer

Touch The Lord

I see the Lord

Most every day

He’s right beside me

As I pray

He walks with me

Along the way

He’s everywhere I go

 

When I see someone

Steeped in pain

I see the Lord

Inside of Him

I go and pray

That health would win

And I have touched my Lord

 

If someone’s feeble

In their home

And I go visit

When their alone

They brighten up

That someone comes

And I have touched my Lord

 

Jesus said that when we touch

One of His children, him we touch

He asks us to go out of our way

To make a difference in the world today

 

If one’s in prison

For their crime

And I go visit

And give my time

It cheers them up

They glad I came

And I have touched my Lord

 

Do you see Jesus

As you walk

In other people

In the park

He’s right there

Inside their heart

Waiting for a touch

 

Open your eyes

To others needs

And soon you’ll see

Their needs are real

It’s up to you

To help them heal

Your time to touch the Lord

The Coming Storm

Winds are swirling

Seas are churning

Storm is drying near

Windows boarded

Food is hoarded

Forecast bringing fear

 

Time is wasting

Storm’s approaching

Skies are growing black

Rain starts falling

Wind is howling

No time to turn back

 

We see the forecast looming

And prepare for what’s to come

Anticipate the worst case

And hope for much more calm

 

And when the storm has passed

And the skies all start to clear

We start the lengthy clean-up

That will last throughout the year

 

But a different storm is coming

One that has no warning signs

It’s a promise in the Bible

And it’s getting close to time

 

Jesus will return soon

To take His children home

And once we all leave with Him

You won’t want to be alone

 

But today you can prepare

For this day that’s coming soon

If a storm you will prepare for

Why not the coming doom?

 

Just ask Jesus to be Lord

And repent of all your sin

He will come and save your soul

And come to live within

The Road Less Traveled

I’m not one to take a big chance

Or go out on a limb

Or venture into unknown waters

 

I tend to take the road more traveled

One that I know

That i’m comfortable with

That I’ve traveled before

 

I was at home in my unbelief once

Easy life down an easy road

No responsibility

No worries

 

Then I learned that road went

Where I did not want to go

It was a road well traveled

Going the wrong way

 

I heard about another road

One that took daring to travel

It led the right way

And it was much less traveled

 

I decided to choose the less traveled road

I accepted Jesus Christ

As Lord and Savior

Now I am on the right road

Won’t you come along with me?

 

 

In response to the daily prompt Daring

Lost

I long to be broken before my God

Poured out and empty inside

Because when I have lost all of myself

His spirit will transform my life

 

I long to be humbled by His patient hand

To lose all myself and my pride

Because when I have lost all me selfishness

His spirit will transform my life

 

I long to be lost

Lost to myself

Lost in His love divine

For when I am weak

He makes me strong

And I grow in Him every time.

 

I long to be led ever day just by Him

Not by my own selfish pride

Because when I yield up my will to His

His spirt will transform my life

 

He’ll carry me through every trial

He’ll lead me through every hard test

And then, in the end, I will know

He has always done what is best

 

I long to be lost

Lost to myself

Lost in His love divine

For when I am weak

He makes me strong

And I grow in Him every time.

Remember

This day we remember an enemy lurks

Who would love to harm us much

He has looked at our land and despises the fact

We’ve been blessed by the Master’s touch

As our morals decline and our streets fill with hate

He slowly creeps in like a fog

We better stand up and shout from the roofs

This enemy must be stopped

 

We love America

Land of the free

Brave soldiers bled and died

For liberty

Let all who threaten us

Be brought to dust

By the Mighty hand of God

In Him we trust

 

In this year of great division

All across our land

It is time we come together

And make a bold new stand

One that says we are united

And our country’s standing tall

When we rise up as a nation

We can never fall

 

So let us boldly lift our voices to the sky

And pray that God will hear our heartfelt cry

When we bow down on our knees

And Him only do we seek

He will come and heal our land that very day

 

We love America

Land of the free

Brave soldiers bled and died

For liberty

Let all who threaten us

Be brought to dust

By the Mighty hand of God

In Him we trust

The Storm

Storm clouds gather in the west

Lightning claps the sky

Wind is rising, sudden gust

Lifts a tree branch high

Thunder rumbles, drawing near

Majestic dark clouds roll

Smell the fragrance of the rain

Before it starts to fall.

 

Then the drops come slowly downward

Hear their pitter-pat

Picking up the pace they echo

Through the rolling grass

Now a torrent water fountain

Opens up the sky

Streams of raindrops rushing downwards

Onto you and I

 

Suddenly the rain is over

Clouds start to depart

Evening sun peeks through below

And brings a brand new start

As the sun reflects the raindrops

Rainbow does appear

Reminds me of God’s great promise

He is always near

 

When you face the next storm in your life

Remember this

God allowed the storm too come

It may be just test

So guard your way and lean on Him

Throughout the stormy blast

On the other side you’ll see

A rainbow come at last

A.S.K.

When I’ve lost my direction
In this crazy old world
I’m reluctant to ask for some help
I think it’s a reflection
That I’m not self-assured
And it makes me feel very inept

But I can’t have this attitude
In my walk with the Lord
When I find I am losing my way
I will have more gratitude
If i look to His word
And find how He tells me to pray

He says first I must ask Him
When I’ve come to stray
Whether knowledge or wisdom I need
And He says that He’ll give
And show me the way
To find the next step in my plea

Next is to seek out
His will for my life
In the situation I’ve fallen in
Then I can figure out
The escape from my strife
And find the path destined to win

Last I must knock
At the door I come to
It shall open to me on its own
The door is unlocked
And it opens to view
The answer that He will make known

Now all that sounds simple
And easy to do
But there’s one trick you need to remember
The asking and seeking
And knocking you do
Must be done ’til you’re led to the answer

He always leads to the answer

He always answers your plea
It’s the waiting and watching that’s hard to do
So ask ’til your heart is set free
And seek ’til you see
And knock “til you reach the door.

My Past Has Passed

Your love is more than I can fathom
Your hope is way beyond compare
I can’t imagine why you chose to save me
When all I did was mock your name

When I fall into sin you send mercy 
When trials come around you lend grace
I see your hand surround me when I wander
And gently lead me back to your embrace

You see my future.  I see my past 
I need to learn that you always know what’s best
That when the trials of life come in I need to rest
You know my future.  My past has passed

I have been blessed by the joy that you give

It overwhelms me each day that I live

Your peace is a river that flows slow and free

I am so thankful that you have blessed me

 

When sickness of pain should enter my life

I know that you’ll heal me in your chosen time

And if I should lose someone real close to me

I know that your spirit will comfort my grief

You see my future.  I see my past 
I need to learn that you always know what’s best
That when the trials of life come in I need to rest
You know my future.  My past has passed

I can’t praise you enough for what you have done

Or for what you are going to do

So I yield control to your marvelous plan

And I lift my worship to you

Go

I heard God Calling

In a voice sweet and low

He said “Child, you are ready

It’s time that you go

You’ve studied and prayed

That the harvest would come

So go out today

And touch everyone.

 

Hope for despair

Joy for their sorrow

Peace in the storms

Through all their tomorrows

 

Deliver the captive

Give sight to the blind

Bind up the demons

And cast them aside

 

Cleansing for lepers

Words for the dumb

Strength for their weakness

Heal everyone

 

Faith for the doubters

Forgive all their sin

Calm down their minds

Bring solace within

 

On top of all that

Show mercy each day

Give them my love

Teach them my ways

 

And treat everyone

With unrestrained grace

Never be harsh

Fill them with praise

 

And when you have done

All the things I have said

Then people will listen

And souls will be saved”
