Revelation of Righteousness (poem)

righteousness r

I look in the mirror and what do I see?

The answer is always illusive to me.

I see all my failures and mistakes that I made,

And then I remember the price Jesus paid.

 

My sin He has covered and though it seems strange,

He died on the cross for a wondrous exchange.

My sins He did bear when I had naught to give,

He then made me righteous that through Him I’d live.

 

My struggle to see past the person I’ve been

Is now a good fight that I know I can win.

He’s done all the work, this I perceive,

Now all that is left is for me to believe.

The Gospel? ~poem~

gospel1

What is the gospel and what does it mean?

Have we made the good news into something obscene?

Is it good news of blessing, prosperity, and healing?

This candy-coated gospel seems very appealing.

 

We’ve abandoned the message that our Lord has conceived

And embraced a gospel that has left us deceived!

Where did we miss it, was it one certain sin?

Or did we allow a little leaven to creep in?

 

It didn’t take much to stray from what is true,

A self-serving gospel has perverted our view.

Repentance is the answer, it’s the only decision

That will help us restore God’s original vision.

 

The gospel is the message that Christ did conceive,

Our sin for His righteousness, if we’ll only believe!

Accept what He’s done, and believe what He said,

Let Christ live in you, and your old man be dead.

Reflections of Righteousness (poem)

I look in the mirror and what do I see?

The answer has always been illusive to me.

And then I remember the price Jesus paid.

He died on the cross for a wondrous exchange.

My sins He did bare when I had naught to give,

He gave me His righteousness that through Him I’d live.

~I Am God’s Word~

Some say I am just an expression of an idea, that I have no real effect on people’s lives. Some don’t believe in me at all. I wish they knew me better. I have been misused, misspoken, misinterpreted, and misunderstood; yet I remain faithful and true.

I am far more than mere words, I am Spirit and I am Life. I was there in the beginning. When I was spoken, things were created, and everything in the universe is upheld by me. I am quick and powerful, and sharper than any two-edged sword. I am the spirit of faith, and I am truth.

I am a light unto your path and a lamp unto your feet if you choose to follow me. I am incorruptible seed, and when I am spoken in faith God watches over me to make sure I perform. I do not return void or incomplete but I accomplish that which I was sent to do. I am very pure, unchanging, and holy.

I am forever settled in heaven. I am steadfast and I am at work all the time. I can be trusted and I am never wrong. I am the sword of the Spirit and I am like a hammer, yet I can wash your soul like the purest of water. When I am spoken things are established in your life. I am eternal.

I am sweeter than honey on your lips. When I enter your heart I give light and understanding. If you love me you will have great peace, and nothing shall offend you. I give you wisdom, and I am life to those who find me, and health to all their flesh.

If you love me and keep me in your heart, when you go out, I will lead you; when you sleep I will keep you, and when you awake I will talk with you. When you need instruction I am there to instruct you, when you need correction, I am there to correct you.

I know I can change your life. I am just waiting to be loved, spoken, and believed in. I have every answer to every question that you will ever have. If you would meditate on me day and night, keep me before your eyes and in your mouth, you would make your way prosperous and you would have good success. If I were in your heart in abundance, you would be speaking me all the time.

I am God’S word.

 

 

The Purpose Of Man ~ poem

The purpose of a man is not his own choice,

he can’t find the answer on his own.

First he must listen to the still small voice

and allow his path to be shown.

 

No one can tell him ”this you must do,

and this is what you shall be”.

That can only come from the Lord above

as He opens his heart to see.

 

Mistakes will be made, wrong turns taken

and this is a part of the quest,

but if he remains with faith not shaken

he surely will see God’s best.

 

What is his purpose and why was he made

are questions that were not his own,

For that was a yearning placed deep in his heart

that the depth of Gods love would be known.

~ Imagine ~ (a little Holy Ghost poetry)

Imagine being born into a world of decay,

Surrounded on all sides by sin,

Then imagine discovering your purpose to be

All the worlds souls to win.

Imagine growing up into an awareness

Of being chosen by God above,

To lay down your life for all of mankind,

All in the name of Love.

Imagine having power to walk on the water

Or power to turn it to wine,

Then imagine you laying your hands on the sick

And restoring sight to the blind.

Imagine seeing people and you look past their faces

To the very depths of their heart,

Not seeing them through a fallen worlds eyes

But as Gods very own work of art.

Imagine being crucified and numbered with thieves

Even though you’ve committed no wrong,

To pay the price for all of mankind

That they may live all eternity long.

Imagine you conquering death, hell and grave

And ascending to a heavenly throne,

Now every human being that calls on your name

God can call them His own

~ This Walk Of Faith ~ poem

This walk of faith is not as easy

As some would like to admit.

The daily struggle to do what is right

And to keep your candle lit.

 

Although it is hard and sometimes painful

And it feels like you’re all alone.

The efforts you make are never unnoticed

By the One who sits on the throne.

 

If its strength that you need, wisdom or grace

To help you get through your day,

He’s ready, willing, and able to help

If all you would do is pray.
