Joy Sounds

When the Lord is found
that’s when joy sounds.
He’s been here all along,
but we have been wrong.
We could not see,
because lack of trust in the Almighty.
God just sits
when we use our wits.
He patiently waits
one of His wonderful traits.
He never does force
when we’re off course.
He raises several flags
to show where the snags
are ready to trap us
robbing our surplus.
We usually go to Him
when our way looks grim.
He is always near,
so we need not fear.
His mighty hands
stretch across lands.
God is mighty big,
in this let’s swig.
If we stop messing around,
God’s grace is always found.
So today turn to Him,
He will make you fit and trim.
He will remove all fat
just like that.
It is for our gain,
if in Him we remain.
Above all, God wants us to know
His love for us is so.
In Him we can rest
God is ultimate best.


Do You …

What you sow
is how you’ll grow.
The Lord wants you to know
in your actions it will show.
Do you listen to His Word?
Do you apply what is heard?
Do you listen to the preacher?
How about your religious teacher?
Are you hearing the true way?
Or does it sound like decay?
Be careful not to stray,
you’ll end up full of dismay.
Do you wonder why there’s lack?

Could it be you’re looking back?
Do you know the way to go?
Or do you say, “Lord show,
the way I need to know.”
Do you go with the flow?
What is the fruit
of this type of root?
These are not mere suggestions;
these are serious questions,
which should touch your heart and spur
you to reflect and give an honest answer.

Jew & Gentile

God is God of the Jew,
and for the Gentile too.
The Jew knows his space,
Gentiles need to learn their place.
This is the case,
which we all must face.
There is a gap so wide,
the church is full of pride.
Gentiles should not spurn,
but be open to learn
from the Jew, the elder son,
because the Gentile is the younger one.
Once pride is abolished,
the wall can be demolished.
The Gentile needs the Jew,
but the Jew needs the Gentile too.
There is but one God,
to whom we all applaud.
From the Jew let’s learn God’s Word,
so that Jesus can be heard,
and seen in all Gentile action.
May this be an attraction
on both sides
where the Spirit resides.
For the Jew and Gentile alike,
may the God of Abraham spike
an appreciation for each other
calling one another brother.
Then all would be swell
in the land we dwell.

Be Careful

Be careful where you are,
you can be like a star
shining so bright
even in the night.
You cannot afford
to take your eyes off the Lord.
If you’re not in Him
your light will be dim.
Don’t let your ears
give way to fears,
nor let your eyes
give way to cries.
You need to be alert
with sin don’t flirt.
If your focus is on Him,
your way won’t be dim.
When you start to walk away,
quickly go to the Lord and say,
“Keep me from going astray;
put me on Your path today
Lord, You are so very kind,
please come and touch my mind.”
God will then enable you to stand,
because of the power of His hand.

St. Paul

I like what St. Paul wrote:
“Only in You can we gloat.”
It is not by my hand
that empowers me to stand.
If it weren’t for You
I would have nothing to do.
If the Lord I did not taste
my life would be a waste.
But I did taste,
so my life isn’t a waste.
I have plenty to do.
And it is all through
the grace of God
to whom I applaud.
Yes, You are the One
God’s one and only Son.
