Thankful

 by Keith Courtney

I thank God for my brothers who boldly preach the gospel,

for reminding me that no matter how big the storm, with God all things are possible.

I thank God for my brothers who have zeal when my energy to witness feels depleted,

for those who speak encouragement in my life when a word from the Bible is needed.

I thank God for my brothers who pray without ceasing, while standing on God’s word in and out of season.

I thank God for my brothers who walk by faith and not by sight,

for trampling over serpents and scorpions as the devil runs in fright.

I thank God for my brothers who carry their cross,

for being a sweet smelling fragrance to those saved and lost.

I thank God for my brothers who are like what Jonathan was to David,

never breaking their oath and remaining loyal and dedicated.

I thank God for my brothers and each ministry they bring,

for those who worship the Lord and love to sing.

I thank God for my salvation and adopting me into a new family,

a family that loves me unconditionally and always understands me.

John 13:35 says, “By this, all will know that you are my disciples if you have love for one another.”

1John says,  “There’s no greater love than when you lay down your life for your brother.

I thank God for my brothers who so desperately love the Lord,

and I love my brothers as they love me and we are all of one accord!

 

From the Windows of My Heart

by Rocky Froemel

My windows were so dirty,

The worst I’d ever seen.

So I took a pure white towel

To wash them nice and clean.

But wiping windows with my towel

My cloth became quite soiled.

My fresh new towel was no longer white,

It’s brightness was now soiled.

My dirty towel and the grime absorbed

Was badly soiled and stained.

But finding my windows sparkling clean,

Not one spot there remained.

The sinless, spotless Christ so pure

Has wiped my sins away.

He took my dirt, filthy past

On Him that glorious day.

 

 

 

A Perfect Forgiveness…?

by Jamie Hendrix

Have you ever truly considered intimately Adam and Eve?

With them welcomed once again into the Garden, into Paradise?

Father and Mother of all mankind, a grand part in God’s forgiveness plan?

Personally, I think it would be wonderful for all humanity to be forgiven.

Have you ever truly imagined intimately the painful regret in their hearts?

Banished from Eden and sentenced to death for their disobedience?

As they, have not we all committed sinful acts regretfully?

Personally, I think it would be wonderful for all humanity to bear this in mind.

Yes, I’ve truly and intimately considered my serpent-deceived fore parents.

I’ve imagined that the painful regret in their hearts was the same as mine today.

Seeking and now having received forgiveness from God – I desire it for them too.

Personally, I think it would be wonderful for them to receive His grace as well.

O Lord be merciful to every created soul.

Yes, I think it would be wonderful.

Yet, I’m just one lowly wretch

What do I know?

 

Eternal Reign of the Lord

 by Harold Jones

The Lord reigns, He is clothed with Majesty;

The Lord is clothed.

He has girded himself with strength.

Surely the Word is established, so that I cannot be moved.

Your throne is established from of old;

The floods have lifted up, oh Lord,

The floods have lifted up their Voice

The floods lift up their waves

The Lord on high is mightier

Than the noise of many waters,

Than the mighty waves of the sea.

For your testimonies are very sure.

Holiness adorns your house,

O, Lord, forever and ever.    Amen

 

I See Jesus Coming

by John Ross Lee

I see Jesus coming,

He’s coming in the clouds.

I see Jesus coming,

The trumpets sounding loud.

I see Jesus coming,

And singing fills the air.

I see Jesus coming,

The voice is very clear.

I see Jesus coming,

To take us to His home.

I see Jesus coming,

We no longer have to roam.

I see Jesus coming,

And heaven’s waiting there.

I see Jesus coming,

And I’ll meet Him in the air.

I see Jesus coming,

And I praise this glorious day.

I see Jesus coming,

I am going home to stay.

 

I Acknowledged

by David Martinez

From all that’s been given understanding

God’s wisdom I’m keeping my eyes on Jesus Christ risen

I expose all my sin for protections been given

Trying to be one that is faithful & be all I can be,

I look upright & rejoice in the light

Investments in my bible reading commands for

Survival drained or bridled I acknowledged God’s menu.

 

He Paid the Cost

 by Jonathan Miller

One life to live…One life to give

One life given for all man’s sin

Let the Spirit take over and the healing begin

It ain’t a matter of race, it’s what’s within

So why would you trip on the color of my skin?

There ain’t a problem He can’t fix, the problem is sin

There’s a solution, He’s got it and I’m all in

God the creator required sacrifice

Blood for sin, first it was animal life

It was prophesied that one day the Christ would come

Council came for Him, when they came He didn’t run

He showed us the way to love, miracles were done

Jesus Christ came to save us as God’s only Son

He was put on the cross, an innocent man

He could have called down angels, He could have ran

This was God in the flesh, understand?

Sacrificed sinless with nails through His hands

He went to the grave and He rose in three days

He beat His death sentence and He served it…amazed

My sins died when He died, my life arose with His life

What I learned about it is I don’t have to die twice

I’ll be raised in resurrection, sent to live in heaven

While others go to hell… let me get your attention

The natural man don’t receive the things of the Spirit

So listen for wisdom, when the call comes, hear it

Stay on point, make your decision wise

And be careful of demon’s demise

 

I Will Not Give Up

by Jerome Pittman

I will not give up, I’ve come too far

My light must shine bright like a star

I will not give up, so many will be hurt

I must see myself as a person of worth

I will not give up, so many others made it

Out of poor me, sorrows pit

I will not give up, it’s almost over I see

To stop now would not be very smart of me

I will not give up, change is soon to come

I’m better than that, victory will be won

I will not give up, because you are here

D.O.C., loving, concerned, kind and dear.

 

Upon a Holy Mountain

by David T

Upon a Holy Mountain, among the souls-Shekinah fire,

Resting in a Sabbath year, many lay ahead;

Taking in His glory, the light is bright-it’s one long day,

Promises received, only love shines on our face.

What happened to the sun, the moon, and the stars?

Here we’ve found rewards are truly ours;

Evil exists nowhere inside these gates,

Devils worm and suffer bound in chains.

Upon a Holy Mountain, among the souls-Shekinah fire,

Resting in a Sabbath year, many lay ahead;

Taking in His glory, the light is bright-it’s one long day,

Promises received, only love shines on our face.

Never before fathomed peace so pure,

Trusting one another, golden rule;

Seas of glass just below our feet,

Before the throne we kneel unto thee.
