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. 

Strength

Meekness does not mean weakness,
And humility does not mean retreat,
It means we patiently stand our ground,
Even faced with apparent defeat.

For our hearts and lives should be fearless,
When channeled for the Master’s use,
Harmless as doves in the Savior’s hand;
Bold as lions when He turns us loose!

MT 2020

1Peter 3:15  NKJV
But sanctify the Lord God in your hearts, and always be ready to give a defense to everyone who asks you a reason for the hope that is in you, with meekness and fear; 

Mercy

I owed Him ten thousand talents,
A sum I could never repay,
But the Lamb of God cancelled all my sin debt,
When He went to the cross that cruel day.

For the mercy of God met His justice,
And neither could be set aside.
But the Father’s mercy triumphed in Christ,
When the Prince of life suffered and died.

MT 2020

NKJV Psalm 86:5 
For You, Lord, are good, and ready to forgive, And abundant in mercy to all those who call upon You. 

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?

Faith Well Placed

Don’t put your faith
Don’t place your trust,
In a son of Adam
Whose end is dust,
Or in earthly treasures 
That corrode and rust,
Nor this broken world
With it’s lies and lust.

But put your hope
In Christ the King,
Who left His throne
To feel deaths sting,
And rose the third day
New life to bring,
And now reigns on high
Rejoice and sing!

MT 2019

1 Corinthians 15:3-4 NKJV

[3] For I delivered to you first of all that which I also received: that Christ died for our sins according to the Scriptures, [4] and that He was buried, and that He rose again the third day according to the Scriptures,

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;

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.
