About Self

About self preservation
I have seen reservation
This is a stumbling block
One the Lord can unlock

I need to guard what I think
So that it does not stink
This is so very hard to do
When our eyes are not on You

When I think of what to do
I am not listening to You
If I clear my mind
Your way I will find

When I bounce to and fro
Not sure of the way to go
Should I do some inspection
Will that release Your direction

The day is half gone
What have I reflected upon
I came to Your alter
Repented of my falter

Lord, it is You I seek
Please, Lord, come and speak
I await for Your Word
Has it already been heard

Did it fall by the wayside
Is it something I have denied
Did I push it away
Waiting for a future day

Acknowledge

During these 10 Days of Awe
I will bow my knee
Before You, God Almighty
I will acknowledge who You are
I will meditate on Your Word
Dwell on what You have done
Your mighty and glorious acts
Read & meditate on true facts
Praise and thank You for Your hand
Your righteous right hand
Gives support and helps us to stand
Your ways are ever so grand
You love and reprimand
Have given us Your command
Abounding is Your grace
Reflected in Your people’s face
No man can erase

Your unfailing mercy
Is plain for all to see
It comes from only Thee
Your guiding light
Whether faint or bright
Leads us to insight
You empower us to fight
Putting the enemy to flight
We are always in Your sight
Oh Your majesty and power
A wonderful strong tower
Oh the gifts You give
Giving Holy Spirit to live
The peace and comfort You bring
Makes every heart sing
O God Most High
The only Lord; Adonai

Biblical New Year

   Oct. 2 at sundown is the beginning of the Biblical New Year – Rosh Hashanah.   Ten Days of Awe starts at sundown and ends 10 days later at sundown beginning on Sun., Oct. 2 through Wed., Oct. 12. It is a time of examination – self and who God is and your relationship with Him. It is a time set apart truly seeking Him; soul searching. A time for serious introspection of yourself, your relationship with others, and especially your relationship with the One true God – The God of Abraham, Isaac, & Jacob.
    These 10 days are considered Days of Repentance; a time of reconciling with people you have wronged/ offended/hurt and a time of reconciliation with God. It is truly a powerful time. 

 

Our King

Praise be to our King,
For He gives us everything.
If we only knew,
all the things He can do.
We would shout for joy.

Praise be to our King,
This has such a nice ring.
He will see us through,
Yes, this is quite true.
We can be rest assured.

Praise be to our King,
Come to Him and sing.
Do not be so sad and blue,
For he has great love for you.
He fills our every need.

Praise be to our King,
We can take refuge under his wing.
Up, away with us He flew,
Not just the Jew, but the Gentile too.
Bring healing to our land.

Praise be to our King,
We are not puppets on a string.
If we only had a clue,
Of the Lord Almighty – that’s who!
We would bow down and worship.
