Awake The break of day awakes me with its early morning light As all the tiny creatures try to scurry out of sight And birds that join the chorus start to take to flight on wings That lift them ever higher with the melody they sing For this is country living not a city sound to hear Just nature at its finest as creation meets my ear With sounds of jubilation to our Maker and our King Who by His grace through wonder has provided everything Most needed for our living as on Him we do depend Not turning from His presence but embracing Him as Friend And Comforter and Saviour perfect Lover of our soul In Whom we find the resources that make us one great whole But while we're still held captive in

Christ's Righteousness The perfect holy righteousness of Jesus Christ the Lord That binds the hearts of those He loves in perfect one accord Who also love Him in return with heart and soul and mind Will be the qualifying Truth that all in Christ will find For perfect holy righteousness is more than what most think In truth it draws us from the mire of sin in which we sink But more than that it fashions us in life to be like Him In every thought and purpose as we seek the souls of them Who know not of the story that began before this earth Before the light that graced this world was spoken into birth Before there even was this rock all lacking form and void All covered by the waters unlike ot

Evil There is a very present evil in the world today An evil that perverts the hearts of men in what they say An evil so insidious its words engender hate In people who would otherwise just trust their lives to fate But this evil has tentacles that weave their way within The hearts of those who think that they are reconciled with sin Who think that they are Christians when they know not Christ at all But think that He'll respond to them when they stumble and fall Into the trap they're laying through their craft and subtlety For people who see not the way they truly choose to be When others cannot see them in the private of their homes Where craft is mixed with subtlety and evil spirits loom

Purpose There is no greater purpose than the purpose that our God Laid out for us in heaven long before this earth we trod There is no greater calling than to work as one with Him Who reigns on high in heaven served by all His seraphim Who serve not by compulsion but in sacramental love In reverent adoration of our Father up above Who made them as He made us with a special work in mind Unique in their own purpose of a very special kind No others were created for designed for them to be His helpers in the management of everything we see From stars that rule the heavens that we see each cloudless night To all the living creatures that we see come morning's light In every place they have a purp

God Is In Control Is it just coincidence or do you also see A pattern to the Way God works by grace for you and me How He has perfect timing for the miracles He'll do When given opportunity to live in me and you And is it any wonder when we call on Jesus' name As He has worked in ages past today He works the same To bring to us His promises that cannot will not fail Though on each level in this life the devil may assail Us with insinuation that our God does not us hear As he works with all diligence to cause us doubt and fear While if we are established in God's Word through daily prayer We'll not be sore effected by his dark affects to scare Us to believe his power is beyond the power of Go

Peter He sat there in amazement while the Master washed his feet And then again in wonder as they sat at meal to eat To think that He Who taught them all about the Father's love Could be the Lamb of sacrifice the scriptures taught them of He listened to His lessons of the meaning of God's Word And with each precious lesson though His Spirit could be heard He still missed so much meaning Jesus wanted him to hear Because of aspirations for a kingdom that was near He selfishly presumed would be a kingdom on this earth A kingdom for all Israel for those of Jewish birth To narrow in his thinking to imagine it could be A Kingdom for all people throughout all eternity So that when they approached h

Like Jesus He lived with such a passion as this world has never seen His heart was pure and holy never selfish never mean And though He was rejected by the ones he came to save Hell had no power to keep Him in the darkness of the grave He spoke with loving firmness of the Kingdom that was His Where all who lived in love with Him would never want to miss The beauty and the wonder of that great palatial place The center of the universe beyond the realms of space He held such sweet communion every morning when He'd rise With tears of deep compassion in His soft and gentle eyes As speaking with His Father they would plan His work each day Considering each life He'd touch and everything He'd say

Daily Devotional

Three Messages Three messages of great import the world must here today Three messages to keep God's children in the narrow Way Three messages that will endure until Christ comes again To cleanse this world of every spot of selfishness and sin Three messages that will not fail throughout eternity That will endure to be proclaimed into infinity Three messages for which Christ died upon that cruel cross To save His precious followers from suffering that loss That will last for eternity for those who choose to face The future judgement before God without His loving grace Available to all who will to follow Him today To set aside the things they've learned that block His perfect Way From showing

Mind Sleepers

The god of this world has blinded the eyes of a great many in our culture. He's aided them in conjuring up realistic imagery in still and moving screen captures. As they watch they experience a rapture taken from their couch into a fake life. Desensitized and Fractured! They remove themselves from reality till their cognition is hampered. Asleep while awake, they elevate their god as great. Unknowing of the state of the world and their own selves till it's too late! But isn't that the point? Isn't that why media's magic wand waves, with the purpose of bringing everyone's mind as of late to a point of cognitive dissonance! Leaving their mind, an impassible path of thorns! A state of constan

Psalm 23 How often have we read those words in chapter twenty-three Of Psalms assuming they were there to help both you and me Assuming we were just the ones to whom they did apply Not looking further by God's grace to use the Spirit's eye How oft have we assumed the Shepherd was just Jesus Christ Not looking at the context of His life that paid the Price Laid out before in chapter twenty-two in prophesy In words that were descriptive of our Lord upon that tree For as we through expansion by God's Spirit in our mind Allow Him to reveal to us the Truth therein we find We see the steps of Jesus in the life He lived before He died upon the cross the Lamb of God He made Him for For when God was

Daily Devotional

Focus So many fail to comprehend the meaning of God's Word When reading in the Bible where His Spirit can be heard They fail to see the beauty that is ever present there Because their minds are cluttered when they pause with Him in prayer And rush to meet their burdens with a sympathetic ear When God had much to tell them they were just to dull to hear That would and could provide them with the wisdom that they need If they would stop and listen and His Holy Spirit heed But time that we're all given is to them too dear to spend On Him Who is our Source of life on Whom we must depend And when they should spend focused time with Him upon their knees They're focused more on vanity and vane acti

God's Family Like rivulets to a river like a branch into a stream Love from one to another in God's people should be seen Like voices in a chorus swelled in perfect harmony This is what God desires in His people all should see But sadly all too often we're worn down by too much care And living like our Saviour is the last thing that we share And people in uncertainty who doubt the Christian call See nothing to desire there not one good thing at all Appealing to their inmost heart where lies their inmost need Where dwells that little fragile child that quietly does plead For someone with the answer to the trials that they face Someone to teach them of the faith that holds to Godly grace And s

Life's Lessons How much time will you spend today observing in the world The many precious lessons just like little flags unfurled That teach us of God's presence and His mighty plan for us When we adopt His purposes and place in Him our trust Will you take time to lend to Him your vision and your ear Allowing Him to show to you the things you need to hear That illustrate so perfectly the things that we must learn If we would have eternity for which so many yearn Where all is joy and glory not a sinner there in sight No fear of death nor heartache not one evidence of blight For everything is perfect from the smallest little mote To every massive star we see of which the seers wrote And there

Presumption How can our lost humanity Engrossed in our iniquity Perceive God in Divinity At such a time as this When we choose our profane attire By which the world does us admire The foolish ways that we aspire To lose the grace that's His Assuming He Who made all things From Whom our very essence springs Will overlook our worst failings To give to us His bliss When scripture tells us loud and clear The sinfulness that we've done here Cost Him the Price He paid most Dear To help us not to miss The joyfulness that He has planned Established by His own command Upon His Law whereon we stand When we ourselves dismiss Our self-reliant evil way For which the Lord of glory paid When He upon that c

Lines The devil draws his battle lines upon the shifting sand Upon the thoughts and feelings of the unconverted man While God Who holds creation with precision of a clock Has drawn His Line of Freedom on the never moving Rock The Rock of our salvation Who is Jesus Christ the Lord Who with His Holy Spirit hold all things in one accord The Father by authority Who sits upon the throne And Jesus through the Holy Ghost Who lives through those His own Who understand the premise He's established in His Word That by His Law of freedom His desire's not inferred But is most clearly stated for humanity to see The Standard of His righteousness that reigns eternally In all who are in oneness t

Distractions If children are a gift that we've been promised of the Lord Then why do we allow them to do things they can't afford That cost them their eternity and place beside God's throne For which God paid the greatest Price when He gave up His Own His perfect Son His Partner His Companion before time With Whom He ruled eternity with love that was sublime That had no hint of selfishness no partiality Nor self-indulgent practices we're prone today to see As children on their ipads their ipods and their iphones Are captivated by the games and entertainment zones That program them for service to the one who steals the soul Of every human being that's not focused on the Goal That God has plac

The Rock Oh that we all could understand the beauty of God's Word That each of us could here perceive the Truth therein that's heard And by His grace assimilate His character of love To make us fit recipients of what He has above Prepared for those who love Him who have leaned upon His Word Who could not in their wildest dreams imagine what they've heard Described for them in glory where the saints will ever shine Who gave their hearts in love to Him with body soul and mind But wait we can perceive the Truth that lies within God's Word We can receive the mysteries that therein can be heard And understand the beauty there that's waiting for all men Who lay aside their selfish ways to overc

Preparation There is a storm approaching magnitude is yet unknown But all will be affected by the works that they have sown One's lack of preparation may just lead to their demise The hope of one's survival will depend on just how wise They are in how they've listened to the Spirit while in prayer How much they've shown intensity in sharing everywhere The message of salvation of redemption from the past And all the joy and glory God's preserved for those at last Who've come to know Him personally from time upon their knees Who trust in Him the future that they know He always sees While guiding them in paths of Truth that lead to endless day Where all the darkness they once knew will surely p

Let's Eat!

Matthew 4:4 (NIV) Jesus answered, "It is written: 'Man shall not live on bread alone, but on every word that comes from the mouth of God.'" I know when my stomach is growling it’s time to eat. I’m searching for something; cashews, sandwich, something to satisfy that hunger because that rumble in the tummy is real. But, what if the rumbling wasn’t from your soulful stomach? What if that rumble came from your spirit man? What if your spirit man was saying it wasn’t fed? Would you seek to feed your spirit man like you feed your flesh? Imagine if you will: your spirit man was so hungry that you had to listen to it. And it said, “hey, I know where we get something to eat.” You say, “Where, Becaus

Love's Mystery So many many years ago before I knew my role Before I understood God's path to reach His final goal He placed His plan in action through the lives of other men Aligning what would happen for today from way back then As others I would come to know would also get their start Arranging circumstances as we each would play our part To be for us an honor in the theatre of men As we before the universe play out the part we're in For long from the beginning in God's counsel up in space A meeting of the Godhead on creation did take place A meeting for the planning of what they would have to do To quell the great rebellion Lucifer had brought them to A meeting filled with passion like w
