You Are My Desire

You are my desire
My soul longs after you
Every day in every way
You fill me through and through

You are my desire
My heart is in your hands
There is no greater purpose
Than walking in your plan

You are my desire
Your joy awakens me
I never have to worry
About my destiny

You are my desire
Your grace delivers me
I never have been worthy
Of the mercy shown to me

You are my desire
Your peace calms every storm
I rest in great assurance
That I am in your arms

You are my desire
You make all thing new
Your love is everlasting
I give my life to you

Before I came top know Jesus I had desires that were of this world. Drugs, alcohol, sex, power, riches and all kinds of worldly things were the longings of my heart. The defined me in my own imagination and nothing could change me because I really did not want to change, at least on the surface. But deep down inside, where the soul and spirit of a man lay, I was in turmoil. Je knew the lifestyle I was living was not sustainable. I knew one day it would kill me.

But I died a different death than expected. When I met Jesus, that man that I was started to fade away, to die out. That old man and all of it’s desires became my history instead of my present moments. I found myself with a new desire, something much bigger and greater then heaping things upon myself. Jesus was now the source of my purpose in life. He came in and dispelled of the old man and gave me new desires. Now I longed for love, peace, joy, hope, patience, faith and all those godly virtues. And my deepest desire was to praise Him, the one I used to curse. What a change in my life. What a wondrous love He has for me!

Psalm 37:4 King James Version
Delight yourself in the Lord and He will give you the desires of your heart

I Love the Light

I love the light that shines on me
It helps my eyes to plainly see
God’s creation given to me
I love the light that shines on me

I love the light that shines in me
Revealing things that hinder me
Dispelling dark and setting free
I love the light that shines in me

I love the light that shines through me
Showing the way so others see
The love of God can set them free
I love the light that shines through me

Is God’s great light alive in you
Does His abiding love shine through
Give Him your all and His will do
Make sure His light shines bright in you

The Cross is All I See

My neighbor built a rock garden
With a fountain flowing free
Some birdhouses hung above the rocks
On a pole that had a tee
A light was hoisted high
To shine for all to see
And when I looked upon it
The cross is all I see

As I travel ‘round for business
The landscape is so vast
I look out on the countryside
As long as sunlight lasts
Spread all along the roadside
Are wires dangling free
From poles with arms attached
The cross is all I see

What a wondrous gift God gave us
In an old rugged cross
A symbol of God’s grace and love for me
I travel through my neighborhood
And all around the state
Seems everywhere the cross is there to see

Open your eyes to see the cross
Each day you go outside
It’s their in all its beauty
The cross will never hide
And when you meet a friend
Tell Him of God’s great love
Tell Him about the cross you see
Gods great gift from above

Open Me

Open me up Lord so others may see
The love that you’ve placed inside of me
Open my heart and mind and soul
That I may show joy to young and old

Open my eyes to see the pain
That others are facing again and again
Open me up Lord to let you shine
The light of the world for all of time

Open me heart Lord to help the lost
To let them known that you paid the cost
Open my mind to understand
What words it will take to reveal your plan

I want to be open to follow your way
I need to be open to your will today
I vow to be open to others in need
I promised to love them in word and deed

Open me. Open me. Open me Lord
Open me up to witness for you
Open me up to touch those for you
Open me up as a light for you
Open me Lord. Open me for you

Your Story

I write what the Lord gives me
Each and every day
I often wonder if it reaches
Folks along the way

Because I have a responsibility
To share what God’s done for me
Hoping that each word will touch
Those who come by to read

So let your story be told
For the word of God plainly says
We overcome by the blood of the Lambhttps://onedailyprompt.wordpress.com/2018/12/29/your-daily-word-prompt-responsibility-December-29-2018/
And by our testimony of grace

Witness and Testimony

No Longer Silent

Too often
I am too private
With my witness for Jesus Christ
I don’t share His message
Or speak of His love
Or pray for the sick
Or visit the ones in need

It’s time to go public
To be more upfront
To tell of His goodness and love
To pray when I see a need
To visit my neighbor
To offer help
No longer be silent
But bold in His witness
Uplifting the name of the Lord

I Am Guilty

I have to admit I am guilty
I dissemble most every day
I write these short little verses
But I have quite more to say

The reason is not just to answer
The prompt that’s before my eyes
But to talk to you about living
For my Savior Jesus Christ

I want to see you in heaven
By these poems I reach out
And tell you about salvation
So you won’t have any doubt

He came to show you His kingdom
He died to free you from sin
He rose to give you eternal life
Today give your life to Him

As Winter Weather Comes

It’s that time of year again
Cooler weather on the way
Time to store the summer clothes
Get the flannel out to stay

It would be nice to hibernate
And skip the cold completely
But that would not be good for me
I’d live life too discretely

I want to be a witness
Of the Grace of Jesus Christ
He died to set me free from sin
And He’s given me new life

I will not let my light grow dim
Or hide it under a bushel
It will shine all the more you see
For lost souls are the issue

As the winter weather comes
So many will be searching
It’s time to make my writing count
For these words speak of mercy
