Words in Due Time

This world is a quite often cruel
A place where our trust meets the test
We reach out in love
Then feel a quick shove
Pushing away all our best

Then others will be nice to you
They will speak gentle words so kind
But just turn your back
They take those words back
You’re betrayed by their words in due time

When we follow Jesus He loves us
With a love that is tender and true
We can trust in Him
Through thick and through thin
He’ll never once betray you

 

In response to the daily prompt Betrayed

Above This Dying World

Finding out what’s right what’s wrong
Finding out how to be strong
Finding out the ways of God
Learning from the word

Finding out a better way
Finding out more every day
Finding out the words to pray
Learning from the word

The word is truth to guide my path
The word is life that always lasts
The word shows me the way to pass
On pleasures of this world

The word sheds light on giving grace
The word shows me my Saviors face
The word gives me desire to raise
Above this dying world

Now I will give my cares to Him
Now I will have His peace within
Now I will raise a joyful hymn
To Jesus Christ my Lord

Now I will sing a song of praise
Now I will worship hands upraised
Now I will lift my voice always
To Jesus Christ my Lord

Hallelujah to the Lamb
Hallelujah to I Am
Hallelujah Christ is Him
I will praise His name

Hallelujah let’s adore
Hallelujah Christ is Lord
Hallelujah evermore
I will praise His name

Fact Check

We hear speeches every day
Asking us to not be swayed
By someone who finds a way
To make a better life

Solemnly their plans they teach
Hoping we will hear their speech
Promising the best for each
End to all our strife

The next day people start to doubt
Fact checks show what their about
Good ideas are all thrown out
Thinking they are lies

In the end one truth will stand
Above all else throughout the land
Jesus died and rose again
His kingdom never dies

If you seek the truth today
Come to Jesus kneel and pray
He’s the truth the life the way
He will give you life

 

In response to the daily prompt Fact

Don’t be a Parakeet

I heard a mockingbird
Saying things he should not say
Then I heard a parakeet
That would mimic all the day

I thought about the backbiters
Who come to church for prey
Then thought about the gossipers
Who spread lies every way

We Christians are above all that
We should be speaking truth
Lifting up all those around
With words that lift and sooth

Let’s put aside the nasty words
And take on all that’s good
Then perhaps we’d see a change
In our declining world

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

Eyes Wide Open

So many people follow
The words of mortal man
No question if it’s truth
They move at their command

It seems they wander blindly
The path laid out for them
By those who could not care less
If they lose or if they win

I’ve made my big decision
My eye’s are open wide
I’m going to follow Jesus
His word will be my guide

No blindness in His message
No question of the truth
The victory lies in His hands
He loves me through and through

 

 

In response to the daily prompt Blindly

Tell It Like It Is

Some people trust in stars
To come and tell their fate
Others use a horoscope
I see if they should date

To others it’s a Ouija board
And others use a seance
I’ll just take God at His word
In Him there is no nuance

He always tells it like it is
The truth is always clear
You’ll be much better off each day
If His words you will hear

 

 

 

In response to the daily prompt Nuance

My Heart Cries Out

I still remember when I first met Jesus

Sitting on a couch in Iowa

He came into my heart

Gave me a brand-new start

I knew that He was with me all the way

 

It’s been over 40 years since that day

When the burden of my sin was washed away

Since then I’ve learned to pray

And to follow in His ways

But most of all I’ve learned to praise His name

 

My heart cries out to praise Him

For all He’s done for me

His mercy’s overwhelming

His grace is sweet indeed

I lift my hands in worship

To Jesus Christ my King

My heart cries out to praise Him

He is my everything

 

Today I know He teaches me His truth

And He’s become my guiding light

I trust in Him always

I know He plans my days

I will never be out of His sight

 

And should this day bring troubles

That make me doubt and fear

I know He’ll comfort me

And in His arms I’ll be

Safe and sound, His love will be so near

 

My heart cries out to praise Him

For all He’s done for me

His mercy’s overwhelming

His grace is sweet indeed

I lift my hands in worship

To Jesus Christ my King

My heart cries out to praise Him

He is my everything

 

Bless His Name

I will sing of the wonderful love of Jesus
How he came to earth that day
He gave up His throne in the heavens
To be born in a stable of hay

I will sing of His wonderful mercy
And His amazing grace
I will sing my Hallelujah’s
And give Him all my praise

Bless His name
His lovely name
There’s no sweeter name than Jesus
Bless His name
So sweet the sound
Jesus, Jesus

I will sing of the teaching He brought us
How He showed the Fathers love
He healed the sick and the blind man
And delivered those who were bound

I will sing of the way He provided
For the crowds that gathered round
I will sing of His glorious presence
And make a joyful sound

Bless His name
His lovely name
There’s no sweeter name then Jesus
Bless His name
So sweet the sound
Jesus, Jesus

Then He gave His life
On a cross of shame
Crucified for me
Bless His Holy name
He died to set me free
And give me life eternally

Bless His name
His lovely name
There’s no sweeter name than Jesus
Bless His name
So sweet the sound
Jesus, Jesus
