Be In My Heart, Lord

 
 

Be In My Heart, Lord
By June Stein
~

Be in my heart at all times, Lord,
That I may dwell in Your Spirit,
Empty my mind of all limits,
So when You call, I will hear it.

Help spirit and soul be open,
To all You would have me savor,
I pray for constant perception,
That my life is in Your favor.

Nothing in life is more precious,
Than dwelling each day in my Lord,
The peace and joy that You give me…
The bulwark of Your Holy Word!

“My strength and my heart may fail,
but God is the strength of my heart
and my portion forever.”
[Psalm 73:26]

The Bible

 
 

The Bible
By Rita Broden
~

There’s no other book of reference 
Offering hope to all of mankind
Than the book that is known as the Bible
The book that touches heart, soul, and mind.

If you’re looking for truth and for answers
Here’s recommended what you should do:
If you truly seek God as you read through this book
You’ll discover that Truth will find you.

His Favor

 
 

His Favor
By Lucia K Haase
~

With just two fish and just two loaves of bread,
disciples fed the crowd by Jesus hand –
the multitudes of people satisfied
at His command.

The ancient day is yet the same today
with baskets holding blessings by His call,
the greening grass and miracles beheld
for one and all.

~


“And he directed the people to sit down on the grass. Taking the five loaves and the two fish and looking up to heaven, he gave thanks and broke the loaves. Then he gave them to the disciples, and the disciples gave them to the people. They all ate and were satisfied, and the disciples picked up twelve basketfuls of broken pieces that were left over. The number of those who ate was about five thousand men, besides women and children.”
[Matthew 14:19-21]

I Hide In His Loving Hug

 
 

I Hide In His Loving Hug
By Kumalawaty Sundari
~

I hide in His loving hug,
Oh, what a peace that gives me!
His sweet comfort is mine daily,
All is well when Jesus stays.
My despair is nailed at Calvary,
I sing hallelujah for His gracious love!

I hide in His loving hug,
Oh, what a peace that gives me!
The joy that Jesus shares is true,
Beautiful is life as His love flows.
My sins are no more today,
Precious is each moment with Jesus!

Yes, to my Savior’s embrace I flee!
His unfailing love is everything,
Humbly I follow His guidance;
My soul is secure in Jesus, amen!
I hide in His loving hug always,
Oh, what a perfect peace that binds!

God’s Promises Are True!

 
 

God’s Promises Are True!
By Marie C Neubauer
~

When we are being ‘tried’
Let Jesus’ words take hold
Did He not promise us
We would come forth as gold?

All things work for our good
When we know Christ as Lord
This is the word of God
To all who He has called!

So praise Him in good times
And in the hard times too!
Remembering always
God’s promises are true!

~

In our times of trouble
Just call on Jesus’ name
He will deliver us
His glory we’ll proclaim.

And did He not promise
All our needs He’d supply
Till that day we shall live
And reign with Him on high!

So praise Him in good times
And in the hard times too!
Remembering always
God’s promises are true!

~


“For all the promises of God in Him are Yes, and in Him Amen,
to the glory of God through us.” 
[2 Corinthians 1:20]

Comfortable

 
 

Comfortable
By Rita Broden
~

Have we grown comfortable in this temporary living
Have we forgotten what our lives are all about
Has this “instant” day and age made us quite lazy
I think it has; in fact, there really is no doubt.

We no longer take the washboards to the river
To clean our clothes and make them odor free
We don’t have horses to attend to for the buggies
We don’t make candles now – there’s e-lec-tri-city.

Most gardens now are grown for just mere pleasure
Most of our food comes from the grocery store
We don’t sew our clothes by hand we simply buy them ready made
And if a sale’s good we just buy more and more.

Many of our meals now come from restaurants
Cooking on the woodstove days are gone
Cooking meals, in general, is almost a lost art
Perhaps the skill that cooking takes was not passed on?

With so many things we do not have to do this day and age
How can we be as busy as we claim?
I suspect God’s adversary has deceived us
We have time for everything but lifting Jesus’ name!

Did you ever once consider that our current life of ease
Came just before our Savior’s soon return
We have more time for witnessing now that our chores are light
This time we have right now we must discern.

God has given us much freedom in this modern day and time
He has freed us from back-breaking days of old
Is it really just coincidence our lives now have such ease
Or was it so His sweet Son’s story could be told?

Get honest with yourself and ask this question:
“Am I really just as busy as I say?”
If there’s time for all the other things within this fleeting life
There is surely time for Christians to obey.

Our number one commission is to spread the greatest news
To everyone upon this earthly plain
That Jesus is the way, the truth, the life – The Son of God
Who died for the lost and now He lives again.

God has given us a luxury no other age has seen
That luxury of TIME is ours right now
With this time let’s spread the greatest news about our Lord
At least, that’s how I see things anyhow.

Fear Not! I Am Here With You

 
 

Fear Not! I Am Here With You
By Kumalawaty Sundari
~

Jesus soothes my troubling soul,
“Fear not! I am here for you”
How His unfailing love sustains!
On His holy Word I stand firm always.
Come what may since God is good,
Near to His heart, all is peaceful!

Jesus holds my hands in despair,
“Fear not! I am here for you”
How blessed I am as God’s child!
The Lord’s joy makes my heart sing.
Let the storms roar and sink all,
Saved I am in my Savior’s embrace!

When I’m alone, He speaks gently,
“Fear not! I am here for you”
Jesus is my light, secure is my soul!
On His faithfulness I rely each day.
May His presence be my delight,
Has the Risen Lord led me to victory!

When doubt arises, His Spirit comforts,
“Fear not! I am here for you”
Jesus is my deliverer, alive I am today!
My Savior’s love guides my steps.
O the darkness loses its power forever,
There is hope through His redeeming blood!

~


“Fear not, for I am with you;
Be not dismayed, for I am your God.
I will strengthen you, Yes, I will help you,
I will uphold you with My righteous right hand.”
[Isaiah 41:10]
