Checkmate

Sometimes I wish I was something more,
Like a rook or bishop or knight,
A piece that strikes fear in the enemies heart,
One that puts the enemy to flight.

But God calls both the high and low,
To do battle in the cosmic fight,
And now I see in Gods economy,
My wishes are not quite right.

For God can use the lowliest piece,
As an instrument of His eternal plan,
For He meets every move and counter-move,
And the board is in God’s mighty hand.

For the Lord is the great and true Mastermind,
Satan’s schemes the King can frustrate,
For He can use the lowly pawn,
To perfect His eternal checkmate.

MT 2021

Rev 17:14  These will make war with the Lamb, and the Lamb will overcome them, for He is Lord of lords and King of kings; and those who are with Him are called, chosen, and faithful.”

True One

Shining in deepest darkness,
Piercing through darkest night,
Jesus the King of glory,
Jesus the Lord of light.

Jesus the Alpha-Omega,
Jesus the true God-Man,
Jesus the Lion of Judah,
Who arose out of Israel’s clan.

Jesus God’s One and Only,
Jesus God’s holy Son,
Jesus the Kinsman Redeemer,
Who makes Jew and Gentile one.

MT 2021

Joh 1:9  That was the true Light which gives light to every man coming into the world.  [1:10] He was in the world, and the world was made through Him, and the world did not know Him.

Luk 2:32  A light to bring revelation to the Gentiles, And the glory of Your people Israel.” 

Tender Counselor

God’s Sovereign right hand,
Rules in earth, sea and sky,
While that same tender hand,
Wipes each tear that we cry,
We may not understand,
The how, what, when and why,
But His will will be done,
Here and now, by and by.

MT – 2020

NKJV Psa 33:10-11 
[10] The LORD brings the counsel of the nations to nothing; He makes the plans of the peoples of no effect. [11]  The counsel of the LORD stands forever, The plans of His heart to all generations.

Glorious Restart

In my best state my life is a vapor,
Fragile like paper thin glass,
In my best state I’ll fade like a flower,
When the last breeze of life makes it’s pass,
But when this corruptible body,
Has felt the last beat of it’s heart,
My new body created in the likeness of Christ.
Will have a glorious, eternal restart!

MT 2020

Philippians 3:20-21  NKJV
20: For our citizenship is in heaven, from which we also eagerly wait for the Savior, the Lord Jesus Christ, 21: who will transform our lowly body that it may be conformed to His glorious body, according to the working by which He is able even to subdue all things to Himself. 

What If…

What if the diverse beauty we see,
Did not happen by random chance?
And the stars in this vast, grand universe,
Are a beautifully choreographed dance?

What if a Creator truly exists,
Who made you and knows your life story?
And died in the place of the human race,
And rose again to reveal His glory?

What if He offers an eternal choice,
That determines where you’ll live forever?
A place of unspeakable love and shalom,
Which nothing can lessen or sever.

MT 2020

NKJV Psalm 8:3-4

NKJV Psalm 8:3-When I consider Your heavens, the work of Your fingers, The moon and the stars, which You have ordained, 8:4  What is man that You are mindful of him, And the son of man that You visit him?

Gain

The Prince of Peace
Did not suffer in vain
He traded earthly pain
For Eternal gain
While the Lamb of God
On the cross was slain
Now Judah’s Lion
Has ascended to reign.

MT 2019

Revelation 5:5 NKJV
[5] But one of the elders said to me, “Do not weep. Behold, the Lion of the tribe of Judah, the Root of David, has prevailed to open the scroll and to loose its seven seals.”

Fullness

The wisdom and power of the Godhead,
God’s fullness in Christ the grand plan,
The Father sending His beloved Son,
So that Christ might redeem sinful man.

God knew the dark and painful cost,
The Holy One would have to bear,
Of piercing nails and scourging whip,
And the crown of thorns He would wear.

But His wounds were badges of honor,
For Christ bore them for you and me,
To show the depths His love would go,
To make us His for eternity.

MT 2019

Colossians 2:9 NKJV
[9] For in Him dwells all the fullness of the Godhead bodily;
