The river continues to flow,
Though we can’t always see ’round the bend,
But those who follow Christ Jesus the Lord.
Find an ocean of love at the end.
At times life can seem like a tragedy,
Interspersed by moments of comedy,
Life has fleeting moments of rhapsody,
Other times it seems lacking in melody.
But life can be a grand symphony,
Filled with joy and a richness of harmony,
If we listen to God who sings beautifully,
Jesus Christ who invites us, “Come follow Me.
NKJV Zep 3:17 The LORD your God in your midst, The Mighty One, will save; He will rejoice over you with gladness, He will quiet you with His love, He will rejoice over you with singing.”
Time may heal
But the scars remain
And the Master Artist
Mixes joy and pain
Into life’s rich tapestry
And while I can’t explain
He makes both work for good
And our eternal gain.
NKJV Rom 8:28 And we know that all things work together for good to those who love God, to those who are the called according to His purpose.
Some sins are blatant and obvious,
Some more discrete and refined,
But no matter what form or fashion it takes,
Sin still makes us captives and blind.
NKJV John 8:34 Jesus answered them, “Most assuredly, I say to you, whoever commits sin is a slave of sin.”
All earthly compare
The blood my God shed
Saved man from despair
To release Satan’s prisoners
Who were held in cruel sway
At the cross won the victory
Ushered in a new day
One day lion with lamb
Will frolic and play
And a child will lead them
God’s shalom on display.
NKJV Rom 16:20 And the God of peace will crush Satan under your feet shortly. The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you. Amen.
I want to grow more in love with You Lord,
More than life and breath itself,
More than all earthly pleasure and treasure,
More than all kingly riches and wealth.
For in finding you King Jesus,
We find who we’re meant to be,
And abiding in Your holy Word,
Sets the heart, mind and spirit free!
NKJV John 15:10 If you keep My commandments, you will abide in My love, just as I have kept My Father’s commandments and abide in His love.
