Where?

Where does God hide the wind?
On a still and windless day.
And where does the darkness take refuge?
When the sunlight chases it away.

MT 2019

Job 38:19-20 NKJV

[19] “Where is the way to the dwelling of light? And darkness, where is its place, [20] That you may take it to its territory, That you may know the paths to its home?

Ambassadors

We are ambassadors of peace and reconciliation,
A royal priesthood and a holy nation,
Born again, Christ’s new creation,
Built on His Word as the sure foundation.

MT 2019

2 Corinthians 5:20 NKJV
[20] Now then, we are ambassadors for Christ, as though God were pleading through us: we implore you on Christ’s behalf, be reconciled to God.

Pondering Illusion

As I ponder the path of my life,
I have come to a reasoned conclusion,
The thought that I control my own destiny,
Is fantasy and delusion.

For we all will meet our Maker one day,
No exception and no exclusion,
And If we live now like there is no God,
In the end He will shatter that illusion.

MT 2019

2 Corinthians 5:10 NKJV

[10] For we must all appear before the judgment seat of Christ, that each one may receive the things done in the body, according to what he has done, whether good or bad.

The Offer

I had nothing to offer
Jesus offered me all
He offered new life
I offered the Fall
He offered salvation
And I followed His call
Christ offered Himself
His blood the cure-all.

MT 2018

Defuse

When rebuked or corrected
There are two paths to choose
One where we win
One where we lose
Admit fault and failure
Or cover up and excuse
And when we humbly receive it
Sin and pride will defuse.

MT 2018

NKJV  Rev 3:19  As many as I love, I rebuke and chasten. Therefore be zealous and repent.

He Must Increase

It’s Him not me
Men need to see
For He not me
Died on the tree
And He not me
Reigns eternally
And He not me
Holds heaven’s key.

More of Him not me
Is my soul’s deep plea
More like Him not me
Is who I long to be
For He not me
Set this captive free
And He not me
Makes evil flee.

MT 2018

NKJV  John 3:30  He must increase, but I must decrease.

Blessed

My soul is wonderfully, beautifully blessed,
For Jesus the Lord is my hearts honored guest,
And I am invited at the King’s kind request,
To enter His presence and find peace and rest.

MT 2018
