I know its the summer time because of how naturally
Your beauty compliments the caress of a summer breeze
As I watch the world from beneath a shady tree
I take in the delightful comfort of everything I see
But in the same breath I am holding up my hands
Lord will you please give me back the things I no longer have
They are even more a part of me now that they are gone
As the sun falls below where the horizon is still holding on
Somewhere between the falling light and a star lit night
Is a dream that last forever and will never say goodbye
As the wind gently blows through the brush and shakes the leaves
It begins to hum a melody that I want to sing
At that very moment I smile for all the joy I have
Its so uplifting for me to see melancholy dance
Soon the morning sun will rise and capture my eyes
As I watch the hand of God paint a brand new sky
With every stroke of color I swallow all my pride
And I find a new place to dream of endless times
If I should ever get to the place I left my broken heart
Only then will I believe this brand new day will start
Again Im reminded of why my heart beats so restlessly
Only the speed of thought and my soul beneath this tree
Walking in the meadow of life on that summer day
Where she always loved to be at Una walked along the steady stream
As she picked up the white Lilly flower and put upon her hair of gold (princess of love)
And the daughter of a dander king
Una suddenly turned her head to the old orchard tree and begun to sing roman lullabies of joy
With tears of affection shed for the god who lives above the skies
At that moment she gazed back to the stream
And there the lion stood so tall just like a king eyes wide looked to una
As she went toward the mighty lion he went to her and utter'd thee words
I am a creature of pride with nothing to hide I am pure of heart true of courage with a mask of savage a mane gold as our hearts-
She became very happy and intrigued
As she laid her gentle hands on upon the lion she spoke these words
-I love thee lion and by sun and moon I love thee freely as men strive for right;
I love thee purely in my old griefs and childhood's faith
There a tiny lamb appears right next to her and the lion
So small and graceful like a gift from god above
The tiny lamb followed them further into the enchanted meadow sky as crystal blue and the wind is calm they drifted off strung into the world
To bring new love joy and courage to the world and spread good faith
On that cloudy weekend in June
I hear a soft and graceful tune
from the grey bird on the tree
Singing sweet lullabies felt
blessed in the moment
My body tingles of joy at sight
Gazing out through
my open door,
Letting thoughts fly free
Releasing love out into the horizon
Heart filled with emotion came
Grey bird stood playing its tune
for awhile and on the wings of
Then as the rain fell from the
sky the grey bird flew away
I blew a kiss to the clouds and
utterd these simple words of I
Love You father ( who's now in
heaven ) and yet I hope to hear
that grey bird sing again once
more for me
Farewell, love your son
Poem contest for Debbie -referential
Now you might have heard of the phrase “On my one sixteen”
But you might be thinking to yourself, “What does this even mean?”
It means that you are unashamed of Jesus, our Savior
And that you just don’t say it, you let it model your behavior
Now with your friends you talk about sports, school, girls, and lovers
But when it’s time to talk about Jesus, you run and hide under the covers
Now this isn’t the way we were made to react
If the gospel was the Mona Lisa we messed it up and made it abstract
We are to talk about our Lord without feelings of shame
So why do we so often fear to speak of his name?
Now Jesus didn’t come so that we could be shy
So when we are afraid to talk about him, he must ask himself, “Why?”
Now I can see him looking down on us with a tear in his eye
Saying, “These people refuse to accept me, even though for them I came to die”
Jesus died for our sin, he came and washed it all away
He completely destroyed it, it wasn’t made to stay
Now to our sin, we no longer have to be slave
So why is it that we still let our sin control how we behave?
Jesus destroyed our sin to give us a new start
He doesn’t just want you on Sunday mornings, he wants your heart
It’s not a one time thing, Jesus causes a new lifestyle
We must stay faithful to him, no matter what the trial
People are going to hate us for what we believe
They won’t embrace the joy that we receive
Now living a life of one sixteen isn’t going to be easy
You’re going to have to man up when you start to feel queasy
There will be rough times, but it’s worth the reward
We get to have a relationship with Jesus, our Savior and Lord
But this wasn’t free, it was bought with a price
And it happened to be our Lord offered up as a sacrifice
But he took the pain of all our sin, he put it on himself
He didn’t die so that the Bible could be a pretty decoration on our bookshelf
He gave it to us as an instruction manual, because we are in the middle of a war
It’s supposed to guide us and give us hope, not be just another monotonous chore
He gave up everything he had for us, out of his blood love pours
But we keep on running to the arms of another, like a group of unfaithful whores
So how about we turn back to our faithful lover
You may think you’re too sinful to love, that you’ve slipped up and can’t recover
But if you run to God you will discover
That he still loves you, he hasn’t moved on to another
So if you look back at all he has done
Why are we still ashamed to speak of the Son?
Let’s speak of him with confidence and joy in our voices
Because we know he is the best out of any of the other choices
Out of all the ways to live, he’s the only one who will satisfy
So let’s take his word and to our lives let’s let it apply
Let’s shout the name of Jesus all over the land
Let’s cry out this good news that it may grow and expand
Jesus is here to save, this word must be proclaimed
So let’s be on our one sixteen and live life unashamed
i talked too allah the other day and he told me jesus was the only wayand i said allah what do you mean,i thought him a prophet was all he was he said no he is my son from above!so jesus came down arrayed in orange and made a dove as a sign of his love!
What Exactly is Christmas?
By: Caroline Knudsen
Christmas isn’t just about the presents you receive and the food.
It’s not based on all the cute decorations.
It’s more than that.
Christmas is about the birth of Christ.
The joy and love that spreads throughout the communities everywhere.
The giving; the wishes granted. The happiness people encounter.
Some people may wonder why people are so cordial and magnanimous around this time of year.
I will tell you this.
One person begins to go spreading good cheer.
And the best way to do that is singing loud for all to hear.
And soon those people begin spreading and spreading and spreading.
Once people get in the spirit people give people love, people celebrate.
So during Christmas time, we go around spreading good cheer,
so people can begin to give, to love, and to celebrate.
We all know that there are many people who are less fortunate.
People who cannot afford gifts or a tree.
Not even a home.
But during Christmas time, people realize it’s time to reach out.
To grab a hand, to grant a wish.
There are many organizations like Operation Christmas Child, Toys for Tots, Sugarplum Trees.
All of those corporations help do that.
Help grant a wish.
So during Christmas time, we decide to give, to care for someone who needs it.
In a little town called Bethlehem, a young Virgin named Mary came to give birth to her child.
But her child was not just any new creation.
She was going to give birth to Jesus the Messiah.
Not one room was empty on that night, but just a small barn.
And soon that night, she gave birth to our Savior in a manger. Something cattle ate from, our Savior was laid upon. So on Christmas day we celebrate Jesus’s birth.
So I hope by now you have learned that Christmas isn’t just about the presents you receive or the food.
It’s not based on all the cute decorations.
It’s more than that.
Christmas is about the birth of Christ.
The joy and love that spreads throughout the communities everywhere.
The giving, the wishes granted. The happiness people encounter.
If I was to die today,
where would I go if
I still live in sin...
If I don't take God
Every time that I try to
the devil gets the best
But I'm ready to follow
the word of The Lord.
I won't let the devil
tempt me no more !!
In Gods grace I want
to reign, and through
his son is the only way.
I'm gonna change
I'm gonna accept
I will live to honer
his name, and pray
to the heavens for
I want to feel his
presence in my life,
may he mentor me...
Give me the strength
to pull through whatever
life has in store for me.
I will not let sin
define me !!
This time around
the devil won't win,
not as long as God's
in my heart...
And I follow the word
of The Lord.
Jesus so merciful
who died on that
cross for our sins
to be forgiven...
I finally understand
your sacrifices, risking
it all to save my life.
Written by: Poet Shi
A river of life is what I seek
Because you alone satisfy my thirst
Clean me with the waters of your forgiveness
Douse me in the pool of your wonder
Every morning, your dew sits on my heart
Flow into the seams of my soul
Gush from me, the fountains of your peace
Hold me, as the ocean holds the ship
I need a deluge of your compassion
Just as the trees need the downpour
Kindness trickles from your hands
Lead me beside the still waters of your love
Make me float in a sea of your grace
Never to sink under the weight of the law
Open the dams that hold back your stream of blessings
Pour your gentleness over my head
Quietly fill me with the rain of your mercy
Rush upon me so that I am swept away with your favor
Saturate me with your Holy Spirit
Tears of joy drop from my eyes
Upward I dive, into your care.
His glorious throne He left
for this unruly world of theft
A great sacrifice He offered
for the world He suffered
Into this world He was born
The sewage of sin He had to burn
Gifts they brought
His life Herod sought
The erudites swore
Crown of thorns He wore
He died then, though alive
He's resurrected, yes He has
The precious lamb of God has
risen to life
Three days in the grave, yet back
The power of death He has
thrown into the eternal sack
The sacrificial lamb
Adoring me in my waking hours
Befriending me when I had no friends
Chasing me when I chased after idols
Doting on me even as I sleep
Exhausting my mind with glorious thoughts
Flowing in the air I breathe
Giving me amazing opportunities
Helping me be a better person
Instantly hearing my prayers
Joking with me when I need a laugh
Kindly nudging me in the right direction
Loving me with a sacrificial love
Moving me to focus on what is pure
Nursing my emotional health
Openly acknowledging me as Your child
Pouring Your Spirit into me
Quieting my anxiousness
Rallying behind me when I need courage
Stopping me from making big mistakes
Throwing adventure into my path
Understanding me better than myself
Valiantly protecting me
Walking before me and lighting my path
X-linking my chromosomes
Yearlong songs sung over me
Zapping me with warm fuzzies
Never in a million years would i have thought
this to be,
my bestfriend, companion, and so special
if i wouldnt have opened my eyes,
she could have just passed by and walked right
outta my life.
but in Gods weird since of loving humor way,
today he brought Brittany Back to stay,
a life from my past that i had lost,
never knowing what would be Gods cost.
Now i sit hear always waiting to see,
her simple smile brighten up for me.
The friendship, hugs, smiles and the tug at my heart,
now i know it was just the start.
I may not always be the best,
but yet she still chooses me above all the rest.
all i ask is please let this be I love you Brittany,
and God please bring her home to Me...
I watched them drag him away
We all watched as they dragged him down the road
I was angry and sad
I couldn’t bear to look upon his bruised face
I remember him too well
He forgave me
I was termed an adulteress
And was brought before him for judgment
But he shunned my accusers
And he gave me a second chance
And now I am helpless to help
I thought they would protest
They all loved him yesterday
But they wanted blood
it was like a free show
I turned away, fell on my face and wept
I watched them flog him
I watched them bruise him
And I prayed
I prayed so fervently
That He would take the life of all of them
All of them who betrayed
All the soldiers that so eagerly whipped and mocked
My heart was bitter and heavy
I only prayed he won't suffer
But he suffered
Suffered from their betrayal
Suffered because they loved him no more
And as they put the crown of thorns on his head
I cried out
I stood there till he breathe his last breath
And when he said "forgive them"
That was all I heard but I felt like he saw me
Through all the shouting and chanting
I felt like he saw only me
I felt like he was speaking to me and I turned away
I rent my clothes unbelieving of his love for these people
I felt the earth quake and heard the stories
I wept wondering what would be left of the earth
But somehow I knew he would come back
At first it was just grief
I refused to believe him dead
But then the rumors came
The messiah has risen
I thought it was the wicked that had come to taunt us
But I heard the story from John
About a free ticket to heaven
And I took it without a second thought
He is the reason I sing
So let me celebrate Easter
Let me celebrate love, resurrection and grace
WHY ARE YOU CRYING?
WHY AREN'T YOU MOVING?
WHERE IS THE POWER THAT I GAVE YOU?
WHY ARE YOU NOT CHOOSING?
WHY ARE YOU NOT WINNING?
WHY ARE YOU LOSING?
WHY ARE YOU COMPARING,WHEN I MADE YOU JUST RIGHT?
WHY ARE YOU AFRAID OF THE LIGHT,AND SETTLE FOR DARK NIGHTS?
WHY ARE YOU COMPLAINING AND FAULT FINDING?
WHY ARE YOU LIVING UNDERNEATH THIS ROCK,WHEN YOU CAN BE ROCK CLIMBING??
WHERE IS THE LOVE I TOLD YOU TO RELEASE AND GIVE?
WHY AREN'T YOU LIVING THE BEST LIFE
THAT I DIED FOR YOU TO LIVE?
WHY EXACTLY DO YOU CARE SO MUCH ABOUT OTHER'S OPINIONS?
WHEN I GAVE YOU POWER OF CHOICE I WAS GIVING YOU DOMININON
WHY DO YOU READ THIS AND DON'T ALLOW IT TO TAKE ROOT?
HOW CAN YOU FIX A TOOTHACHE
BY ONLY FOCUSING ON THE SURFACE OF THE TOOTH?
WHY DON'T YOU STOP WORRYING;
AND JUST SURRENDER TO ME?
WHY DON'T YOU LET GO OF YOUR PAST SELF
AND JUST BECOME WHO YOU SHALL BE?
veio de onde veio
para onde foi
os três fizeram seis
os seis fizeram doze nojentos vagueando de casa em casa
sem achar quem o a recolha!
Morreu pobrezinho filho de deus!
desprezado por pessoa que não tem coração
por coração que não tem alma
pobrezinho da pobreza
Today we’re caught up in so much noise
We spend so much time on our gadgets or toys
We worry about Facebook, Twitter, and all that’s online
But when it comes to Jesus? Nah we don’t have the time
There are so many things packed into our day
But do we take that precious time to pray?
Now I get it, we all have stuff to do
But Jesus could have been doing other things when he was dying for you
Now we have to spend our time wisely
Cause when I look at my life, it always surprises me
We have school, sports, homework or a job
We think “Ya I can handle this…no prob”
We say we can handle it, but this is just a fake façade
What we should do is cast our anxiety on God
1 Peter 5:7 says he’ll do this cause for you he cares
He constantly pours out his love that he shares
He can make our lives so much less stressful
So to his offer, why are we so resentful?
We should want to cast our anxieties on him
Sometimes, we just don’t know where to begin
Even though God has so many things to do
He’s always there waiting to spend time with you
He’s there to help you, comfort you, or wipe away that tear
He can fix any wound no matter how severe
So let’s slow down and take our foot off the gas
And let’s put our hope in Jesus for it will always last
Some of you might think that God is outdated
Check your glasses cause they’re probably jaded
Unlike our gadgets, he will never go out of style
Whether you know it or not, he’s been around for quite awhile
He’s been here since the beginning, he knows what he’s doing
So he should be the one that we are pursuing
I say earth was not created by any certain man
Jesus did not save us
Keep thinking if you must
Lies will fill your minds
My life does not revolve around thin air you call your Saviour
No becasue in the end I will be free
Open your eyes and realize he will never show
Practice all your prayers
Quit wasting your life away praising something that does not exist
Really learn how to live on your own
Soon you'll have nothing becasue of your so called God.
When I close my eyes for one last time
His bright light I will see
His glory will shine upon me
His calming warmth will set me free
His grace and love will rest upon me
With his one touch
I have wings that will envelop me
His voice I hear as a whisper
Calling me home to be with him
I take his hand and glorify him
Glorify his name
Glorify his name in Jesus We Pray
the ministry of the dance is always Scripture based
it's all about bringing the Holy Spirit into the place
the ministry of the dance has a purpose that is two-fold
of Godly deliverance and breaking demonic strongholds
to deliver someone from the spiritual bondage of society
and show with the power of the dance there's spiritual victory
to break demonic strongholds with divine break through
to show in dance what the joy of the Lord can do
the ministry of the dance is a physical manifestation of love
for Jesus the Christ, the Holy Spirit and Father God who dwells above
to know that the tears which are cascading from our eyes
was enough to touch a soul and move them to cry
to know that the spiritual energy we emanate so much
made someone feel that by the hand of God they've been touched
the ministry of the dance is a physical portrayal of the Holy text
and not based on one's age, gender, race nor sex
a powerful ministry that is open to all
of which by the Spirit one is called
a ministry of faithful dedication, true devotion and total commitment
with love for the Lord, trust in the Spirit and a Godly contentment
the ministry of the dance is more that just a worship service
it's a ministry of true faith with a specific purpose
to dance with the Light of the Lord radiating through
and the Spirit of the Lord filling up the church's pews
the ministry of the dance is to give honor, glory and praise
to Jesus who died on the cross and 3 days later was raised
a ministry of divine inspiration
a ministry of divine elevation
to lift up someone and move them beyond their comfort zone
to lift someone up and move them to kneel before the throne
it's about the Holy Spirit taking complete control
it's about sacred dancing in order to save some souls
the ministry of the dance will forever be spirit-led
it's a visual ministry serving of the Daily Bread
it's not a ministry that is meant to entertain
it's a ministry powered by the sacrificial blood stain
the ministry of the dance is about spiritual victory
that which Jesus died for to give to you and give me
it's not a performance and it does not invite vainglory
it's about being used an instrument in the outward expression of the Biblical story
the ministry of the dance is a ministry of total sacrifice
to submit your body, heart and soul into the hands of Jesus the Christ
THE MINISTRY OF THE DANCE
I looked in the mirror and what did I see
There was a man staring back who was not me
He looked as I did in perfect sync we paired
The same bushy eyebrows, the same short cropped hair
The same goatee with a smirk on his face
But this man was not me who had taken my place
When did this happen just who could I blame
I will find the one responsible for doing this thing
I ran from the room to avoid the glare
Of this stranger in the mirror who only smiled and stared
Then he spoke with a tone that dimmed the lights
And then and there I knew I was fighting for my life
“I am you, don’t fear what you see”
“You and I are one because you created me”
“Over time I have grown into what we have become”
“So now you must live with what you have done”
I yelled for my wife, “Honey, help me, here”
But the home was silent, no one was there
I searched for my kids but their rooms were bare
I checked in each closet, into emptiness I stared
I screamed out for help, anyone, HELP
Then the room grew quiet, there was a calmness I felt
I turned to the mirror and the reflection of me
Was staring away in great disbelief
Someone had entered the room without making a sound
And spoke to me as I stared at the ground
“I am the light you seek, in I you should trust”
“I died for you because I love you so much”
“I’ve been watching you waiting for you to cry”
“For someone to come and save your life”
"Believe for you I died on the cross"
"And only I can restore the man that you lost"
"Allow Me to enter your body and soul"
"And hold Me there always for the world to behold"
"Reach out for Me, I love you my son"
"I'll bear your pain and we will be one"
The weight this pain dropped me to my knees
I reached out my hands crying "Please Jesus Please"
"Save me please from what I have become"
"And forgive me for all I have done"
"I accept you as my Savior and Christ"
"And will cherish you close for the rest of my life"
"I will shout out your name to all that's around"
"So they too can see the Greatness that I have found"
He took my hand in His and I began to stand
And man in the mirror was gone, it was me there again.
Easter is way more than just some earthly thing
It’s about the victory of our Savior and King
It marks for us a whole new beginning
Where we don’t have to worry about our constant sinning
For he destroyed our sin once and for all
Now we don’t have to worry when we fall
For when we do he will catch us for sure
He is always there, his love for us will always endure
Because he died and rose we are free
It’s all because how he suffered for us on that tree
But that’s not the end, there’s more to the story
On the third day he rose and he showed all of his glory
He conquered sin, Jesus is risen
And because of this our sins can be forgiven
Now in Him we have new life
And we can leave behind all our pain and strife
Because Jesus came and took that all away
And he threw it into hell where it’s going to stay
Sin is no longer our master, by Jesus it was defeated
And with that Jesus’ mission is finally completed
verse) soaring high in the sky is the lord he is looking from his
throne and into the world. love, compassion reigns threw the valley's
for he is looking for his people to come to his castle. o'glorious o
illuminating god let your golden light surround me!
(chorus) kingdom bright bright oh so bright i love this flight
kingdom bright bright oh so bright i love jesus and all his might
i wander about he is my light. i am his child and he knows that
water fills his chalice and over flows just like his love i know
he loves me so.i walk with him to his heavenly castle hand 'n hand he
smiles and show me my plan
(verse) waterfalls splashing gardens with beautiful flowers i hear the
childrens laughter reign all around me. this is heaven this is heaven
eagles soaring and lions grazing i see i feel the love around me. the
lord guides me and he always will.
(chorus) kingdom bright bright oh so bright i love this flight
kingdom bright bright oh so bright i love jesus and all his might
i wander about he is my light i am his child and he know that
water fills his chalice and over flows just like his love i know
he loves me so i walk with him to his heavenly castle hand 'n hand he
smiles and shows me my plan.
(verse)my kingdom is the heaven of the creators (god's) arm all are
welcome into the kingdom, just knock and you shall be received . the
father has many mansions one for you and me. the angels sing oceans and
lakes forrests and trees he loves them too like you and me.
(verse) the angels play the trumpet as you walk threw the pearly gates
you see a rainbow and a smile on god's face you get a new body and get
to see your friends but the greatest part of all is this is the end. no
more worrying, no more suffering you will be happy within god's hands.
heaven is a wonderful place for you and me!

My Life in 51 Lines
My life, what sets me apart?
What makes me different?
My choices, good or bad
The things I do and decisions I made are what make me, me
I lived to fit in. I blended in with the world which I was raised in
I chased after what people told me would make me happy
I had my own selfish ambitions
I wanted to make it big. I wanted to be known by all
That’s what they told me would make me happy
But that life never satisfied
No matter how many girls I was with
No matter how much money I had
No matter how popular I was
No matter how good at sports I was
It was never enough. I was never truly satisfied
It was like I was trying to quench my thirst by eating salt.
It only made me more thirsty
I thought I was chasing after what I wanted
But contentment and happiness kept on eluding me
It was just out of my grasp
If only I could have “that” I would be happy
But I didn’t know what “that” was
I thought it was my fault, I wasn’t doing enough
That’s why I wasn’t happy
That did nothing but send me to a pit of self-consciousness and lack of self worth
I based my identity on what I did, but it was never enough. It never satisfied
But in stepped Jesus and just at the right time
His love never fails, it never gives up, it never runs out on me
These words stuck. It made me wonder
A light bulb moment happened and it all made sense
Jesus was no longer just the answer to my hermeneutics test
He was my personal Lord and Savior, our relationship began
I was shown that my own deeds will never satisfy me or save me
This was hard to grasp, it was all I ever had known
But Jesus showed me to trust in his grace alone
That’s all I had to do
My identity is now found in Christ
Sounds cliché, but I was born again
My old life is now just a memory
Do I regret what I did? No. I’m able to learn from what I did and see how I was wrong
I trusted in myself, but I needed a stronger power source, and that’s what I got in Christ
Now I live for Him, to bring glory to Him, not me
Who am I to seek pride?
I am but a mist that appears and fades
I’m a second in the motion picture of God
I am temporary, but my God is forever
He remains strong even when I am gone
My future? I don’t know what it holds
All I know is that I will serve Him, not me
My old self is no more, I’ve been made brand new
Now I’m going to do what my God made me to do
Now let me show you the difference between Jesus and religion
Some of you might be blind, get ready to gain some vision
Now religion and Jesus are two different things
Jesus is different in the joy that he brings
See religion always requires us to do more
It doesn’t seem like a blessing, but more like a chore
It takes hold of us, it becomes our master
You better watch out cause its coming faster and faster
What it requires of us is always more works
And if we do better, then in return we get more perks
It’s like the more we do, the higher we are on the latter
But the higher we get, the more room we have to fall and shatter
Aiming for works will only leave you graspin’
It’s gonna hurt so bad, youre gonna need an asprin
All it does is take from us, its never enough
Its not focused on Jesus but on all this other stuff
Its all about our outward appearance
And that we can look better with just a little more perseverance
Our inside is dirty, so we try to mask it
But we don’t realize that its just putting us deeper into a casket
The outside might be pretty, but the inside is unclean
It becomes so regular, you start to become like a machine
Alright cmon lets take a closer look
Youre not a christain just cause it says so on your facebook
You start to find yourself just going through the motions
You think youre saved only because you do devotions
Now devotions are awesome, but they must come from the heart
Don’t get me wrong, they’re a great place to start
You go to church? Ya that’s great
But that alone doesn’t get you through the heavenly gate
But all we need is grace found in Jesus
We need to think more about him, and not just whatever pleases us
For he is truly the only thing we need
And to get this, all we need to do is believe
Jesus wants us, he’s calling us in
He loves us despite of all of our sin
Hes calling us close, not pushing us away like a broom
Hes pulling us in saying cmon theres room
Jesus death was truly sufficient
So the question is why are we acting so resistant?
He saved us for sure, no strings attached
To this, no other guarantee can be matched
There is no better offer that we can get
We can forever be with God, our future will be set
This is the way it was intended, even from our birth
For God takes us in and shows us what we are worth
So we were adopted and are now to him a son or daughter
But not to an earthly man, but to the heavenly father
Man look at that, what a happy reunion
We can all sit at his table and take part in his communion
And now, we’re all together again
And that’s how its gonna be to the very end
Now remember, Religion says Do, Jesus says Done
The only reason we’re saved is because of the Son
Between religion and Jesus, you have to know the difference
Because from sin Jesus is our only source of deliverance
Step by step HE leads me
Drop by drop HE feeds me
Moment by moment He cares for me
and I walk in green pastures
Word by word HE teach me
Hand in hand HE reach me
Rays by Rays HE shine on me
Heart in my heart HE dwells with me
Days on days HE cleansed me
Cares HIS cares have touched me
Spirit HIS spirit is guiding me
and so I am blessed
Blood HIS blood have saved me
Cried I cried HE healed me
Thought by thought HE renewed me
and so my soul is saved
Jesus oh Jesus I call on you
LORD my Lord , I live for you
Follow I follow and I follow you
Thanks n Thanks I offer to you
Heaven in Heaven , we'll dine inn
JESUS in Your Presence I Walk-in !!!
THANKS JESUS FOR U WALK WITH ME !!! AMEN
When I was a child, Mom said am at your side,
When I joined school, teachers were there to rule,
I was growing in fast pace,was running a life race,
I looked aside , I looked behind - I saw my LORD walking beside
When I was grown , my dreams were high on
Parents were worried , cause I always used to hurry
They imbibed their ethics , but my mind was under critics
I looked aside , I looked up right - I saw my LORD walking close by
When I passed my teens , my beauty could be seen
Sin entered to its brim , I just couldn't be clean
I was told to follow the Gospel - Jesus was there to Answer
I knew LORD was there, somehow and somewhere
Though my sins were washed over , all due to Jesus favour
I peeped in and I peeped out -I saw my LORD was still walking out
All days of my life - LORD wanted me to be really right
I could hardly believe , what my blind eyes could never see.
Oh it was my LORD - Who walked with me all across
I was saved in HIS arms -- YES I was walking with my LORD
Through JESUS I could live - Soveriegn LORD now will forgive
In my past the TRUTH walked WITH ME
Today in my present TRUTH is walking IN ME !!!!
LORD LEAD ME TO THE ENDS OF ETERNITY !!!! AMEN
The abundant power of GOD
All were created with HIS word
He sent his only Son
To save us and glory to come
He yielded up his life
and was buried in our sight
Not long he could sleep
Resurrected so we could believe
And again the Power of GOD was seen
He is the LORD of heaven , death and hell
and by-and-by we shall know that HE shall come
On fiery clouds and wings of wind
Appointed Judge of all mankind
Jesus , is the wisdom of GOD
That's the power of My LORD
He planned the way of salavation
He devised the system of atonement & substitution
He laid the foundation of the great plan of Salavation
This is the Power of GOD
This is the Wisdom of My LORD
He built the Heaven by HIS wisdom
and sent Jesus from HIs kingdom
Wisdom of GOD is in CHRIST
Power of GOD is at HIS RIGHT
Miracles happend and was glorified
The lame man leaping
The deaf man hearing
The dumb man Singing
The dead was rising
Power of GOD was always so shining
Bow before him, desire for him
Crown him , crown him ,he is worthy of Crowning
YES, Power of GOD is living
Follow JESUS for HE is finally Coming !!!!
As she stands upon a rock on a hill top
Looking into the sky as thy Lord opens the door to Heaven
She can see right inside as he shows her upon this cross
That he as suffered and died with fear hurt and loneliness
Hidden inside For you know life is the most Beautiful thing
On earth yet it continues to be a mystery from the day of your birth
Its pretty much what you make it to be full of Joy or Woe
If its to be beautiful you must make it so
Yes my Jesus I Love you for this reason I'm a Christian
Help me to be worthy to bear Thy Name
There is so much hatred here on earth
For we don’t treat people for what theyre worth
Our words have so much power
We can tear people down or build them up like a tower
We bring people down for our personal gain
We think we win when we bring them shame
Instead of shame, how bout we bring love
Let’s show people a reflection of our Father above
Let’s show that we’re different, we’re not the same
For we’re not living for ourselves, but to bring glory to His name
Because of this they may knock us down and spit in our face
Instead of hating them back, let’s show them some grace
We can think we deserve better, that life isn’t fair
But if life was fair, we would all be in hell full of despair
We think we don’t deserve all this pain
But if we suffer here on earth, how much more in heaven we will gain!
Even Jesus suffered in his human state
So lets take his attitude, and after him lets imitate
He didn’t hat back, for he knew that God is just
He didn’t put things into his own hands, he gave God his trust
Even though they hurled insults on Him
He still came and died for all of their sin
He gave us the perfect example of how to forgive
So lets take it and apply it to how we live
So no matter what people do to us
We need to show them the love and grace of our savior Jesus
When we hate back, what do we gain?
All of what Jesus did will go in vain
So lets follow him and all of his ways
And bring glory to him the rest of our days
And if we do this, we will discover
That life is so much better when we all love one another
A woman one day had a total makeover
she completely altered her body and face
But only one week after all the surgery she had
she found herself standing before God's pearly gates
She said Lord, "what's going on around here
You told me I had twenty more years?"
The Lord replied," I didn't even recognize you
and that could be the reason why you are now here"
What is the ultimate makeover? What is it that we feel we must change?
What are we really reaching for? What do we hope to attain?
Botox injections, breast augmentations, changes that require a surgical team
We sometimes take an extreme approach to obtain the American dream
Pimped out, tricked out the ultimate fantasy car
But without God in your life you won't get very far
The ultimate makeover what you really need in your life
Is to accept as your Savior the Lord Jesus Christ
We all have a God shaped hole in our hearts that only He can fulfill
And no makeover of your fleshly self can completely satisfy that bill
To live your life to the fullest extent you must makeover your inner being
For your soul is the essence of who you are the core that God will be seeing
Neither bulking up nor becoming slim and trim will to God make much of a difference
It's the grace, peace and serenity inside you that will change your outward appearance
So confess that Jesus is your Lord and Savior
and believe His Father raised Him from the dead
For your faith in the Lord Christ should not occur only inside your head
It's not just the consciousness of your thoughts It's how your soul accepts God
So drink of the blood of the new covenant of Christ a makeover transforming your heart
For true belief involves your whole being it's not just cerebral and intellectual perceptions
It's the heart , mind and Spirit of God that should be your personal inceptions
The ultimate makeover the ultimate transformation
Will occur when you accept Jesus Christ's resurrection and salvation
So be recreated with a clean heart renewed and born again
the ultimate makeover that comes from within
But if you continue to hold sin in your heart there's not much that God can do
And you'll have a harder time finding forgivingness if your heart's not contrite and true
So ask the Lord for peace and grace and let the Holy Spirit inside you take over
Be revived, renewed and born again the ultimate Godly makeover
I was be little
I felt so small
I was afraid
I could not say
I would go home and cry and tuck my burses away
And wonder what makes me a target
Of others laughs and talks behind my back
I would ask my self what would make a person act this way
Is it the fear they see in me is it the power they felt to gain
Not fighting back made me so sad
It is not in me to fight its just not right
The red face teary eyes I could not hide
Every day was the same ride
Then a black cloud appeared
Bring bad thoughts to my ears
But I refused to hear instead I turned to my faith
And I prayed and he answered me and lifted me high
and Gave me back my pride
So I did what Jesus would do
I in braced my fears came face to face
With my aggressor and the glow of the lord
Appear on my face taken away all the aggression
All of the pain I was able to stand a hundred feet tall
And I felt brave no longer the victim
In Jesus I found the way
He is the way and the truth he set me free
My bully is now my friend
This is not just another day
The clouds above all seem gray
None of us know what to say
My mind needs to stay focused and not go a stray
I remember the days we used to play
It is the Life we need to portray
Or is this final come what may
I want to be selfish and make her stay
I guess this is the time we all need to pray
You tell yourself this is all going to be okay
There are some things I wish we could delay
Reality is here and it is planned this way
Because this is the price we all must pay.
True word is in Bible, Holy and living
Changes our life and is worthy of giving
LORD's commandments are shared in it
This is the way, the life and an Eternal gift
Thankyou LORD for your love is unfailing
Sent your only son it's Joy overwhelming
For its Jesus whose Spirit,in us is still sailing
And now there is no more wailing
Bible is the way to Eternity
Words in it brings change and humanity
We get wisdom, understanding and life
Every word thus become so alive
Genesis speaks how heaven and earth is created
How LORD's word was incredibly situated
Amazingly Adam and Eve were formed
Suddenly sin too entered and all went wrong
They disobeyed the word of the Sovereign LORD
Death descended on us as a punishment of our flaws
When sins were too high , all flooded with a deep sigh
Only Noah and family was kept alive
Moses was the closest to GOD,
Decrees were given to him in the past
Ten commandments was written to follow
But men filled with dirt and dust to wallow
New Testament explained JESUS's life
This is just not a man,But gave eternal sight
Bible is the only Book, which is so full of grace
We can know the living GOD,by reading and with Praise
Read Bible and led by the HOLYSPIRIT
Or you'll be astray and devil will cherish
How long you'll take my dear
Judgement day is so near
Be a real believer and leave the traditions here
LIFE is with JESUS, repent and Be with saviour
If you want Heaven the only way is here
Follow JESUS or hell will be your snare
BIBLE won't be shared then,
ONLY REGRESSIONS WILL BE WITH TEARS!!
GOD knew me when I was in my mother's womb
HE framed me in the inner dark room
When I was out, family was with smiley Shouts
How fragile my life was with love and care
But life with GOD was just not there.
Gradually grown with parents help
They did all to make my wealth
Their Cares gave me loads of health
Still can't find my LORD to dwell
Once got the BIBLE in hand
Journey started to read and scan
Took time to understand
But when SPIRIT helped me only then I can
Life with GOD was beautifully seen
How lovely was my steps and scenes
Changed my life with pros and cons
And journey with LORD was full of songs
Life with GOD filled me with LOVE
Transformed me inn and the seeds were grown
Frictions headed in my life though
To sparkle my life like a Diamonds Glow
Yes pains were there but JESUS beside
Journey with GOD was HOLY and Right
Life with GOD is Full of Peace
When family asked me where have I been
My answer to them was sweet and clean
Life with GOD is now Full of Roses
My Message to ALL is FOLLOW JESUS ! :)))
I stopped by today to tell you
That you were never alone
I wanted you to hear this
So no one else could lead you wrong
All those nights you lie awake
Believe me I was there
I was the fly upon the wall
The gentle breeze brushing through your hair
I was the silence that you prayed to
The darkness that hid your fears
I was the blanket that kept you warm
The gentle hand that wiped your tears
I was the pillow that gave you comfort
When the night felt so alone
I was the angel there who kept you safe
The protector of your home
I was the familiar sounds of night
The ones you grew to know
I was the stars that shined so bright each night
Inside your bedroom window
I was the mighty oak that stood close by
My roots could not be breached
I was the kiss of love you felt each night
Before you went to sleep
I was the shoulder there for you to lean
When things seemed out of hand
I was the forceful sound of your inner voice
Screaming out YES you can
I was the dream that gave you courage
To fight another day
I was the voice of reason that held you
And encouraged you to stay
I was the thought that made you smile
While everyone would stare
I was the wonder that made them wonder
Why you were smiling there
I was the past that you once lived
The future that's yet to come
I am the here and now that knows no bounds
The love in which I'm from
And through life I will remain
A simple breathe away
No need to ever look for me
I’m here always to stay
Never a weakness that HE Can't fill
Never a sickness that HE can't Heal
Never a sorrow that HE doesn't share
Moment by moment -You are under JESUS CARE
Never a tear that HE can't wipe
Worthy HIS love we can't define
His compassion and love has brought us through
Today we say --LORD you are True.
Always we find , HIS glory around
Never HE leave's or brings us down
Never an evil can touch our life
Blood of Jesus will show us light
Never a door will be closed for us
Never a devil can make us rust
Never a stumbling block will crush
When Jesus has already splashed HIs blood
Thankyou Jesus , for lightning my path
Moment by moments you sparkled my stars!!!
LOVE YOU JESUS MY LORD!!!!

Tragic moments am here to describe
How pains headed and sorrows derived
Painful times agonies inclined
Searched for a friend but nothing can find
Freted and cried on whom shall I rely......
Betrays were many and no one called me honey
GOD never forsakes one priest came and waved
Hey ! Daughter God is at HIS pace
To nourish you and save
World will give pains follow JESUS and be saved
Confiding people will surely be wrong
Only tears then will tag along
Stop searching for a True Friend
when GOD is there to shape your dents
LORD can adore you as you are
And can clean you from Sins and Scars
Will lead you to the levels of Eternity
And feed you in all your adversity
Wait and Watch HE'll call you Honey
You don't have to worry your life will be Sunny
LORD said :
I'll shine on you and will also prosper you with Money
Be righteous is all what I want
Shall fulfill all your desires and shall not leave you in want
Your enemies will rest with you in Peace
People will adore you and will reach
They'll want to be your Forever Friend
But truly saying, JESUS is their in all your ends
Call JESUS a FRIEND and rely on HIM
Give Thanks to HIM and follow HIM
My eyes are open for LORD is near
Nothing can separate me and now no fear
LORD, thankful to you for being mine
or else my life could never had SHINE.
