The word on the street
Can be bitter or sweet
Change is about to come
To all and not just to some
Are you prepared and ready
Are your hands and feet steady
Look to Him who knows
He knows how life goes
It can be surprisingly pleasant
Like a beautifully colored pheasant
God holds everything in His hand
Everything bows to His command
His Word you do want to hear
Go to Him, He will draw you near

Be Careful *Deut. 11:22-32

Deuteronomy 11:22-32;NIV
God continually warns His people to “be careful” in what they do and how they act. Follow God, the Lord God of Israel and blessings will flow. However, if you choose not to abide by the Bible then blessings are withheld and a curse will follow if you disobey the commands of the Lord your God and turn from His way by following other gods.
Blessings and curses are set before His people. Warning after warning God gives to be careful about our words and behavior. He longs to bless His people. God is holy and sets a good standard for His people to follow. The standard is for our sake, our benefit, so we can live a blessed life. When we sin – for no one is perfect – quickly repent; ask God’s forgiveness and sin no more. God is gracious, faithful, and ever forgiving of true repentance.

Yes, 7

Proverbs 6:16-19     (paraphrased)

These 6 things the Lord does hate
With them do not mate
Yes, 7 are an abomination to Him
Do them and your life will be grim:
1. A proud look; haughty eyes
This the Lord does despise
2. A lying tongue
Whether old or young
3. Hands that shed innocent blood
Avoid this like a grave flood
4. A heart devising wicked plans
In any woman or man’s
5. Feet swiftly running to evil
Wickedness is their retrieval
6. A false witness speaking lies
The truth he/she denies
7. One who sows discord among brethren
Whether young, old, women, or men

7 Times 7

More than 7 times 7
Bread comes from heaven
His flock the Lord will feed
He will give us what we need
When times are good or tough
He will give more than enough
The Lord will watch over you
No matter what you go through
His Word and promises hold true
Just watch and see what He will do
To the Lord nothing can compare
So go to Him now with your prayer

In Trouble

I know I’m in trouble when
I have troubling thoughts again
They’re twisting and intertwined
Disrupting my peaceful mind
They do nothing but cause me grief
They sneak in like a relentless thief
In order to keep my life from sinking
I need relief from stinking thinking
This one thing I do know
To the Lord I must go
I pour out my heart to Him
I confess all that’s grim
He is the Lord God Almighty
But He carefully listens to me
Not only that, but He heals
Replacing what the enemy steals
I then am on the road to success
To Him my thanks and gratitude express
Whenever I call, He is there
He listens and tends to every care
So, if you are troubled inside
From the Lord do not hide
Go to the Lord God of Israel
Your troubles to the Lord tell
He’s kind and wants to help you
He is gracious and merciful too
If you don’t know Him that’s okay
He knows you, go to Him today
With you He will meet
Only He can steady your feet
He will guide you along the way
So why not go to Him this day
