Ripe

Are you ripe
to begin to gripe?
Stop where you are
you won’t get far.
No one wants to be around
where complaining is found.
Complaining needs to end
use your words to mend.

God Only Knows

Only God knows
how life goes.
It is for all
that He does call.
If you follow Him
without a whim
He will set your feet
upon the right street.
Obedience is sweet
for you will meet
your Maker
who’s your Caretaker.
You will avoid God’s wrath
for your feet are on the right path.
If you walk around with smiles
it could save unwanted miles.
Don’t forget to learn of His Sword
plus worship and pray to the Lord.
This to Him will be pleasing
and will keep you from freezing.

Our Father *Matt. 6:5-13

5 “And when you pray, you shall not be like the hypocrites. For they love to pray standing in the synagogues and on the corners of the streets, that they may be seen by men. Assuredly, I say to you, they have their reward. 6 But you, when you pray, go into your room, and when you have shut your door, pray to your Father who is in the secret place; and your Father who sees in secret will reward you openly. 7 And when you pray, do not use vain repetitions as the heathen do. For they think that they will be heard for their many words.
8 “Therefore do not be like them. For your Father knows the things you have need of before you ask Him. 9 In this manner, therefore, pray:
Our Father in heaven,
Hallowed be Your name.
10 Your kingdom come.
Your will be done
On earth as it is in heaven.
11 Give us this day our daily bread.
12 And forgive us our debts,
As we forgive our debtors.
13 And do not lead us into temptation,
But deliver us from the evil one.
For Yours is the kingdom and the power and the glory forever. Amen.

Spiral

You are on a downward spiral
if focusing on the temporal.
In order to avoid the infernal
focus only on the eternal.
This would release
an unending peace.
It would bring joy to your heart
also you would feel quite smart.
No more a devastating fate
if on the Lord you wait.
In Him you can rejoice
So, turn now with your voice.
