Step by Step

One step at a time Lord Jesus
With the grace you provide for me
Granted each day, sustaining my way
As I strive to walk whole for you!

Temptation comes, you are there
Trials I face make me strong in grace
As I walk the holy path set for me
Strait is the way, narrow the gate!

Game of Connections to Reach the Prize

The Princess lived in a strong fortress
Surrounded by a protective family
Guarded by those who shoot to kill
Watched over by the security crew

So hard to reach except by code
The lines sent to roaming orbs
Floating high above the clouds
Sending notes to her hidden screen

Her friends far away did write
But pass the guards, not possible
So distance ruled her relationships
Her abode so far away from them

Suitors dared but could not pass
The danger to all that tried to see
A bit closer, the princess of the Net
But death to all who got to close

So lonely days passed into months
Emails and posts were so abundant
The friends more than just a few
The distance is hard to breach, alive

One day peace will touch her land
The Prince of Peace must make a stand
His mercies flow like a river of love
He reached her heart from His throne, High above

No Sweat in F# for the dark grapes and C for the white

May He soak your mind in music with a truly heavenly score
May He soak your feet in wine so you can dance some more
May He soak you ‘til your floating like the dew before it falls
May He soak your soul in Patience so you can wait His call

For the Master has His timing and we need to know His ways
Or we will be so very hasty and move out before He says
Go forth into the vineyard and smell the blossoms on the vine
Careful for the petals are not full and must await their time

I just wanted to let their fragrance swirl about as fragrance do
Drawing the honey bees to their nectar for the trip back to the hive
Where the honey flow turns to honey by the magic in My hand
And the flowers turn to grape lets as the hang still on the vine

So catch the little foxes because they climb the tender vines
As they hustle, seeking the sweet grapes before their time
Barely ripened in the sunshine yet still some time to go
When the harvest time is ready you can sing the song to Him!

Consider!

What good is all your money,
And all the worldly fame,
If your found in your neighbor’s bed room,
Your own house filled with shame!!

It is Simple to the Humble

The vague must be brought into the light
The days replace that which was the night
When love fills the void left by sins weight
And mercy flows down from its place

You can’t change yourself, try all you might
You must be changed, by the work of the cross
A gift no man could ever buy, for you on that cross
Only the humble repent and know this truth!

We Need the Fire from on High

Praise ascends from hearts afire
From lips dripping oil and hands lifted high
Worship becomes the saints of the Lord
The ones set apart by the Spirit of God

As fragrance rises from an altar of gold
Hands held high as a sacrifice of Praise
Only by faith in a God no eye has seen
Can we praise Him, for faith is a gift

Could we deny Him who our lives sustains and upholds?
Who gives us breath and peace from heaven above,
Who causes His love to fill our hearts and souls,
Who causes joy and rejoicing to spring from our lips!

Let us seek that which is from heaven above
From there comes every good and holy thing
For there dwells the King of righteousness and peace
And against Him and His Army no rival will ever succeed

He Sits on the Throne of Heaven

From the rising of the sun,
To the going down of the same,
God reigns in Zion, His Holy Mountain!

Let the peoples rejoice for He is gracious
His mercy endures forever and ever
He reigns in truth and righteousness

Now is the time and His word hastens to its mark
He will complete His work in justice and righteousness
He is humble and raises up the poor and broken in spirit

He rises up the downcast and depressed
He makes the lame to stand in strength
He will not allow the oppressed to be forsaken

He will judge and His judgment is in truth
He will bring an end to war and destruction
He brings peace to the earth that endures forever

Egypt’s in Flames, Egypt is in Pain!

Fire and smoke curl to the sky
The mobs of peoples crying for change
Some mobs cry for everything to stay the same
Man’s best solution can’t heal all this deep pain

The rocks get thrown at armored cars
Screams and shouts ring out more and more
The dead’s voices now silent in the grave
Could not God work and man wait for Him

The living have hope but the wrath of man
Can never produce the righteousness of God
Power hungry men stir up the tempest fire
Will they gain power to lose it at the next turn?

It has all been written and all coming to pass
The last day’s symptoms of the inherited sin
Adam’s race in a bloodbath seeks salvation
By shedding each other’s blood in their rage

Stay calm in the storm O son’s of the Most High
God protects all who put their trust in Him
Look up because your redemption is nearer each day
All the signs point to the clear message of His Word

Yet no one longs for these days of unrest and turmoil
Even from a safe haven looking down from your perch
It pains to see mankind deny Christ and His peace
And rather blame others for their soul’s lack of bread!
