I Scratch My Head

I used to collect baseball cards
Comic books and marbles
The cards and marbles we would win
The comic books were Marvels

Today if I still had my stash
Kept in mint condition
I have to say I’d have it made
It would be worth a fortune

But I had little foresight then
Into what the future told
Today I scratch my head and think
How did these others know

But there is one thing that is sure
A day is coming soon
When Jesus will return to earth
And take away His own

I am ready for that day
I’ve asked Him in my heart
Make sure you ask Him in today
So you to can depart

Sweet Smelling Savor

A movie was made a while ago
Scent of a Woman the story told
Al Pacino won the Oscar gold
A performance I truly admired

I’ll trade any day the scents from this world
For the sweet smelling savor of prayers to our Lord
Rising to meet Him in heaven adored
As an offering He will accept

So enjoy all you can this old world and it’s smells
Because one day He’ll come we know this quite well
The day and the hour no human can tell
Be ready for His soon return

Avoid the Wreck

When you get to a railroad crossing
You see signs everywhere
And often there’s a bar to keep you back
I figure you all see these signs
And take them serious
‘Cause if you don’t, you’ll wind up in a wreck

We see strange things a-brewin’
All around us anymore
The signs of the times are really clear
Jesus said He’s coming back
When these signs appear
Have you made Him your Savior and Lord

For when He returns in the clouds
A crossing will take place
For all  of those who’ve given Him their lives
Those who are left behind
The worst of times they’ll face
Will you avoid that wreck and and save your life

 

 

 

 

In response to the daily prompt Crossing

In a Flash

One day it’s going to happen

And it’s too far away

Jesus Christ will split the Eastern sky

And all have accepted Him

As Lord of all their lives

Will vanish as from earth they take their flight

 

Imagine all the chaos

That will happen on that day

When millions will be gone iin just a flash

If you don’t want to stay behind

Ask Jesus to come in

And you will rise with us because you asked

 

 

 

In respone to the daily prompt Vanish

Are You Prepared?

This time of year is thrilling

As Christmas lights get lit

Anticipation fills the air

As Santa has his list

The children are all smiles

Awaiting the big day

It couldn’t come to fast

For they’re prepared to play

 

Much like the signs of Christmas

Are the signs of the end times

Calamity throughout the world

And loss of civil minds

The church awaits the coming day

With great anticipation

Are you prepared for Christ’s return

Do you have His salvation?

 

If not we can take care of that

Right now if you don’t mind

Just ask Jesus to forgive your sins

And make Him Lord of your life

Acknowledge that He died for you

And that he rose again

To give eternal life to you

Forever up in heaven

For Me

This one thing I know.
Jesus loves me so
Died upon a tree
Just to set me free
Shed His precious blood
Just to show His love 
For me

 

I will give my life
All to Jesus Christ
His I’ll always be
For He’s done so much 
For me

 

How incredible
How amazing
How extraordinary is His love
I’m undeserving
Such a sinner
Yet His mercy reaches out to me
Great compassion 
Down from heaven
Grace will always be enough

For me

 

One more thing I know

One day I will go

Up into the air

He will meet me there

Never more to roam

He’s prepared a home

For me

 

How incredible
How amazing
How extraordinary is His love
I’m undeserving
Such a sinner
Yet His mercy reaches out to me
Great compassion 
Down from heaven
Grace will always be enough

For me

Jesus Christ the Lord

Riding on the clouds He comes

With a host of angels

Victory is in His grasp

Jesus Christ the Lord

 

All of Heaven sings His praise

All the earth rejoices

Saints will gather ‘round His throne

Jesus Christ the Lord

 

Lord of all the heaven

Lord of all the earth

Everyone confess and bow

To Jesus Christ our Lord

 

The dead will rise before Him

And stand in judgement there

The Book of Life is opened

By Jesus Christ the Lord

 

And those whose names aren’t written

Will find the lake of fire

For all eternity they’ll cry

That Jesus Christ is Lord

 

And those whose names were written

In the Book of Life

Will sing for all eternity

That Jesus Christ is Lord

 

Lord of all the heaven

Lord of all the earth

Everyone confess and bow

To Jesus Christ our Lord

 

Cherubim and Seraphim

And elders ‘round His throne

Sing Holy, Holy, Holy

To Jesus Christ the Lord

 

Honor, Glory, Majesty

And Power be unto Him

Whose worthy of our praises

Jesus Christ our Lord

 

What a grand and glorious day

When we’re all rejoicing

In the New Jerusalem

With Jesus Christ our Lod

 

Lord of all the heaven

Lord of all the earth

Everyone confess and bow

To Jesus Christ our Lord

 

The Hope of Heaven

It may seem far away to you

So your not in any hurry

Your lie is going on just fine

So you don’t need to worry

 

But Jesus said the hour is near

And no one knows the day

That He will come with trumpet sound

To take His own away

 

So if you don’t know Him as your Lord

It’s urgent that you ask Him

To come into your heart today

If you ask, He’ll come in

 

And you will have that peace of  mind

That you are not alone

He’ll give you hope for all of time

And heaven will be your home

 

 

 

In response to the daily prompt Urgent

Great, Great Love

One day every knee will bow

In heaven and in earth

And every tongue will confess

That Jesus Christ is Lord

 

It matters not what they believed

While living on this earth

They must acknowledge He is Lord

For all the world to see

 

And those who served Him here below

Will then a mansion gain

But those who chose another road

A fire awaits them

 

As for me I’ll sing His praise

As long as I have breath

For He’s the one who gave His life

So I’d be free from sin

 

Oh, the great, great love of God

Who sent His only Son

To die and take my sin away

And rose to give me life

 

Oh the great. Great love of God

Who looks down from above

And helps me every day I live

To grow in grace and truth

 

I’ll lift my praise Hosanna

Glory to the King

Highest Hallelujahs

Praise His mighty name

 

Praise and adoration

To Jesus Christ my Lord

Worthy of my highest praise

Now and evermore.

 

Is He Coming for You?

He’s coming soon.  He’s coming for me

Because I asked Jesus to save me

I bowed me head and made my plea

And that’s why Jesus is coming for me

 

When Jesus died so long ago

He died a death that all should know

Because on the cross He saved our souls

My sin has been washed white as snow

 

But there is something I must say

Ask forgiveness right this day

And then repent and turn away

And walk in His way every day

 

I must apply the blood of Christ

To all the old life left inside

And let His Spirit override

My past of loving fleshly life

 

And as I do He will transform

My life to His desired form

I’ll see a new and living swarm

Of God’s desire becomes my own

 

And then He can work out the plan

He had for me when He began

To transform me by His sweet hand

So I’ll become a Godly man

 

And as I live my life for Him

He promised I’ll forever live

In heaven, and I’ll walk with Him

For all of time His praises give

 

He’s coming soon.  He’s coming for me

Because I asked Jesus to save me

I bowed me head and made my plea

And that’s why Jesus is coming for me

 

Is He coming for you?
