Poem: Christian Ideals

Absolutely essential, for saved people,

is the true concept of Christian ideals.

For they serve as inspirational guidelines,

in the development of holy, inner steel.

These ideals motivate Christians to action,

on behalf of the Christ, within His Will.

In addition, one strives to humbly live,

without the trappings of religious frills.

These principles affect one’s attitude,

in doing what aught to be done in service.

They provide vision with sacred…

Poem: Shout Hosanna!

Hosanna! Hosanna!

Salvation is near.

Hosanna! Hosanna!

Salvation is near.

Lift up your voice,

come lend your ears;

hear the message of Love

and joyfully rejoice!

Hosanna! Hosanna!

Save us, Dear Lord.

Hosanna! Hosanna!

Save us, Dear Lord.

Soften our hearts,

teach us Your Word;

draw us closer to You;

keep us, in one accord!

Hosanna! Hosanna!

Your mercy is here.

Hosanna! Hosanna!

Your mercy is…

Poem: Overcoming Evil with Good (Spiritual Secret)

Ongoing failures of the Church to act,

will guarantee the sure success of evil;

for faith without works is… still dead

and visible today is spiritual upheaval.

The internal chasm between the members

of both sides -the presbytery and laity-

must be bridged with faithful cooperation,

girded with policies that last permanently.

Even today, God is quietly waiting on the Body,

while the unsaved are queued up for Hell.

Individual Faith is a person’s…

Poem: Spirit Filled

We’re not to vex or grieve the Holy Spirit;

instead, we need His anointing on our lives

to spiritually achieve personal victories

and that faith in God- is continually revived.

Being rooted and established in His Love,

we can be dispensers of the Spirit’s fruit-

Manifesting these traits on a daily basis

should be behind the desire of a Holy pursuit.

Peace, Patience, Love, Goodness, Faithfulness,

Joy, Kindness, Gentleness and…

Poem: Good Works

There seems to be ongoing confusion,

regarding the ministry of good works.

After all, Christianity is a lifestyle

and responsibility must not be shirked.

Don’t be deceived by the religious leaders

saying ‘it doesn’t matter in what you believe’.

For the righteousness of Christ is available,

as soon as His promise, you willingly receive.

We are clearly taught within The Word,

that ‘real faith without works is dead’.

Although there is value with…

Poem: Strength Under Control

Blessed are the mild and long-suffering,

for they alone shall inherit the earth;

their happiness and contentment comes…

from only understanding their Godly worth.

Not worried about accusations against me-

my Lord continues to defend His children.

My Lord is the eternal and heavenly advocate

and His Blood overcomes all affects of sin.

Real meekness… is strength under control,

while gentleness demonstrates self-constraint

in the midst of…

Poem: Ontological Dependence

Can I ever appreciate metaphysical studies

on the very nature of being and existing,

without consideration of God my Creator,

when I’m an extension of His breathing?

Did He not breathe life into Adam’s lungs?

Without Him, I can do nothing meaningful;

doesn’t practical application of The Word

teach me to live peacefully with life full?

I don’t require divine power to sit idly by,

since God acts when I chose to share my gifts.

He provided direction…

Poem: Empty Places

What is the full depth of my inner soul?

How far does it fall short of infinity,

given the known limits of my being human?

Can all of the crevices, cracks, fissures,

scissures and abyss of the empty places

in my soul be filled when I desire Your Presence

to consume every void of my existence?

While complaining, gossiping, and rage

can grieve Your Holy Spirit, I’m only posing

these questions… to expand my understanding.

I’m thankful that You…

Poem: Alive to Righteousness?

Are you bearing good fruit?

Are you hungry for victory

and for more of His Presence?

Are you alive to righteousness

and Christ’s divine essence?

Faith without loving works

is still considered dead;

are you part of a local body?

What are you doing today?

What is it, that you embody?

From the greatest exchange,

our raggedness for His glory,

taken was our sinful shame-

Hallelujah to The Lord!

Hail to His Holiest Name!

Made…

Poem: Defeat the Giants

Use the correct perspective,

based on God’s spiritual view-

for there will be Goliaths,

standing defiantly before you.

Know that you’re His child!

Anyone can be strong, when leaning

on his relationship with Christ.

Run into the battle speaking…

against the hostile opposition,

when the situation appears grim.

Acknowledge your sacred covenant

and your divine identity in Him!

Though the enemy comes against you,

your weakness in the…

Poem: In His Hands

Although I’m still clay,

upon God’s pottery wheel,

He continues to mold me.

Fashioned after His image,

He reworks this human vessel

to accomplish what He sees…

in the combination of gifts

that were previously bestowed,

into this elysian creation.

Mirroring Christ’s brokenness,

I can share in His suffering,

from fully embracing Salvation.

Free of the law of sin and death,

my unveiled face radiates His Love,

as I am ‘taking…

Poem: Beatitudes

The ‘Be happy attitudes’ uttered by Christ,

demonstrate a mindset that we need to embrace.

Hungering after God’s divine righteousness,

gives us comfort in His covering of grace.

Be dependent on God, for bearing good fruit;

know that it’s still wonderful to be blessed.

Everyone is important, since we’re His children;

unfortunately, not all will pass the sacred test…

of walking in the principles of God’s love.

Despite our status in life,…

Poem: As It Is Written

Where one’s mind goes,

the Man will always follow.

Are you paying attention

to what may be tomorrow?

 

Faith always agrees with God

and the messages of His Word.

Take random thoughts captive.

Is it Him, that you’ve heard?

 

Be freed from mental bondages;

improve your thinking today.

Read the Biblical instructions

and get a new life underway.

 

Meditate on the Scriptures.

Reduce your inner turmoil;

Pray for…

Poem/Song: Seeing Clearly?

Am I living from a place of

blind fear or abundant love?

What messages are coming through-

from the endless Kingdom above?

Daily I endeavor to live,

the life I have imagined;

will my dreams be realized?

Will my future be fashioned?

Is my faith more than

an illusional contrivance?

What am I doing wrong,

since I’m wanting guidance?

The infinity of my soul

continues to slowly unfold;

will the value of my…

Poem: Set Your Mind (Spiritual Secret)

Pay attention to what God wants to show you;

embrace the regenerated self created in God’s image;

a wandering mind of distractions, unable to focus,

leads you to trouble and and adverse situations,

when not following the principles of Christ Jesus.

 

To sincerely follow your heart’s desire,

while avoiding the issues of double-mindedness,

you must properly set and keep your mind;

when waiting on God’s timing for your life,

the things that…

Poem: Sola Scriptura

Hidden layers of meaning,

completely permeate The Word;

they’re found by spiritual eyes

and a desire for absolute Truth-

to overcome the enemy’s lies.

Take time to study the Bible

and its many, divine precepts.

Embrace them with your heart;

learn lessons from others’ pain;

keep life from falling apart.

Be led by the true Love,

behind the scarlet thread;

for God identifies His own,

by the principles found…

in the Scriptures…

Poem: Releasing God’s Power

I can depend on Christ to strengthen me!

Acknowledging that He is still in control,

no longer will I remain faint and weary-

since He comforts the depths of my soul.

Miracles always come in cans, not “can’ts”;

though His Presence and power are available,

I must humbly move forward under His guidance,

unashamedly wearing today’s Christian label.

His Spiritual fortitude divinely energizes me;

confidence in knowing that victory is coming,

allows me…

Poem: The Whisper Inside

In my quiet morning moments,

I seek Your Presence today,

wanting time at Your side.

Without You, I can do nothing;

this is a sliver of Your truth

and not a statement of vain pride.

Still hungry for more of You,

is my heart’s humble claim;

don’t let me remain… teary-eyed.

Long ago, I accepted Truth found-

in Your Word, there are answers

for overcoming problems in stride.

Despite simplicity of my ideals,

I seek a fruitful life of…

Poem: Heart of Compassion?

Do you regularly wear an invisible,

‘do not disturb’ sign around your neck?

Are you on a real mission for The Kingdom

or on the adventure of a personal trek?

Can you be moved to help without limitations?

Are you consistently viewed as unapproachable?

Does your mind reflect an attitude of a servant?

Remember that genuine Love is always actionable.

Forget about the wickedness of the World,

for we are still the hands and feet of Christ.

The day of…

Poem: Costly Signal

Regarding the absolute authority of God,

it’s crazy, silly and futile to rebel;

know that everyone will ultimately bow,

before His throne or the gates of Hell.

Foolishness of God exceeds Mankind’s wisdom;

hidden are the keys of His profound mystery.

We are inspired with awe without intimidation,

knowing that He was crucified upon that Tree.

Acknowledge His deeds, since He loved us first;

worship Him now; His precepts we’re to observe.

Bask…
