Never Severed

The Lord loves me because
The Lord loves me despite
He loves me when I’m wrong
He loves me when I’m right
He loves me when I’m up
He loves me when I’m down
He loves me when I smile
He loves me when I frown
He loves me in sickness
He loves me in health
He loves me in poverty
He loves me in wealth
He loves me this second
He loves me forever
He loves with a passion
That death cannot sever.

MT 2018

 

No Place

I’m a billion year old speck of dust,
In random selection I place my trust,
Struck by lightning I’m now animated,
From the ground which I came I’m now liberated.

Out of the void and darkness and muck,
By random chance, by sheer dumb luck,
I now have life by a freak accident,
By Mother Nature not God I’ve been sent.

I dreamed of becoming a fish or a bird,
To say God made me is truly absurd,
I became whatever I wanted to be,
I am the captain and god of my own destiny.

But some fools think there’s a creative mind,
Behind life and creation and all mankind,
Whom they praise and worship and give the glory,
But this God has no place in my creation story.

MT 2018

Gen 1:1  In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth.

Faithful Keeper

The valley of the shadow of death
Is wide and dark and deep,
And the climb up the mountain of righteousness,
Is narrow, winding and steep,

But the Good Shepherd leads in both places,
For He loves and cares for His sheep,
And no matter what terrain or trials we face,
His lambs He will faithfully keep.

MT  2018

Ready?

Life has its ups
Life has its downs
Sometimes it smiles
Sometimes it frowns
One thing is certain
God’s grace abounds
May we be found ready
When the trumpet sounds

MT 2018

NKJV Luke 12:40  Therefore you also be ready, for the Son of Man is coming at an hour you do not expect.”

Good Shepherd

The Good Shepherd watched from a distance,
While I grazed in the field of sin,
Till I finally came to my senses,
And cried out, “Lord Jesus, come in!’

The Good Shepherd who once stood afar,
Now guides my heart, mind and soul,
And I’m safe in His heavenly pasture land,
Restored, reconciled and made whole.

MT 2018

NKJV  Joh 10:11  “I am the good shepherd. The good shepherd gives His life for the sheep.

Plains Maker

The Great God who spread out Montana’s big sky,
Waters the plains when they’re thirsty and dry,
He taught wild horses to gallop and prance,
And makes prairie grasses break out in dance.

MT 2018

NKJV  Isa 42:5  Thus says God the LORD, Who created the heavens and stretched them out, Who spread forth the earth and that which comes from it,

The Reward

One day I will hear the welcoming voice,
Of the God who spoke all into being,
And my eyes will behold the King of kings,
When my faith is rewarded by seeing.

MT 2018

NKJV  2Co 5:7  For we walk by faith, not by sight.
