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.

The Soul’s Sole Defender

He paid the price we could not pay,
One we could never render,
By dying once He died for all,
Humanities sole defender.

The Lamb of God was put to death,
Victorious in His surrender,
Was even with His dying breath,
Humanities sole defender.

He’s the Great Physician, heavens balm,
The soul’s perfect healer and mender,
He took our sin upon Himself,
As humanities soul defender.

MT 2018

NKJV  Psalm 103:1-2  Bless the LORD, O my soul; And all that is within me, bless His holy name!  Bless the LORD, O my soul, And forget not all His benefits:

The Hum

The universe hums
A sweet song of praise
Lifting it’s voice
To the Ancient of Days
The heavens above
God’s glory displays
From the myriad stars
To the suns warming rays

MT 2018

NKJV  Psa 19:1  The heavens declare the glory of God; And the firmament shows His handiwork.

 

Surety

Christ’s lavish love washing over me,
Bathed in His goodness and purity,
Cleansing my eyes to clearly see,
His kingdom and power with clarity,
His cross my salvation and surety,
I am His for all time and eternity!

MT   2018

NKJV John 15:9  “As the Father loved Me, I also have loved you; abide in My love.
