Humble Fool

I take it as a badge of honor,
To suffer reproach for His name,
For I believe every word He says,
Every promise, command and claim.

While His words may not be in fashion,
And many might think them uncool,
It rather be true to the word of Christ,
And be thought a humble fool.

MT 2020

1Co 1:18  NKJV
For the message of the cross is foolishness to those who are perishing, but to us who are being saved it is the power of God. 

Words

Words full of power
Words full of might,
Words piercing darkness
Words casting light,
Words softly whispered
Words strong and bold,
Words of the prophets
Messiah foretold,
Words bringing fire
Words bringing rain,
Words healing wounds
Words easing pain,
Words bringing hope
Words loud and clear,
Words of God’s kingdom
Present and near,
Words of King Jesus
That abide evermore,
The Word holds the key
To unlock heaven’s door.

MT 2019

Mat 24:35  NKJV
Heaven and earth will pass away, but My words will by no means pass away. 

Sometimes Always

My mind is sometimes filled with doubt,
My heart sometimes filled with fears,
My soul is sometimes tempest tossed,
And my eyes sometimes well up with tears.

But my mind is always at peace and rest,
And my heart always courage filled,
When the Savior sows His seeds of truth,
In the soil the Spirit has tilled.

To See and Hear

We don’t need lightning bolt flashes of truth,
But God’s Word to enlighten our way,
For His Word is a lamp and light to our path,
To keep us from going astray,

We don’t need to hear things novel and new,
To tickle our itching ear,
But Jesus, His life, death and rising again,
It’s the gospel of Christ we must hear.
