Stray

I once watched in deep despair,
As my dreams were all swept away,
And I thought I would never again,
See another sunny day,

But then I met Jesus the Savior,
And He promised to lead the way,
Oh thank You Good Shepherd Jesus!
For seeking this once lonely stray.

MT 2019

Luke 15:4 NKJV

[4] “What man of you, having a hundred sheep, if he loses one of them, does not leave the ninety-nine in the wilderness, and go after the one which is lost until he finds it?

To The Weary

The Maker of the heavens, the moon, the stars,
Sees your tears, your fears, your scars,
And traveled from His heavenly kingdom afar,
To break your chains and prison bars.

Your troubles, trials and tribulation,
Headache, heartache, pain and frustration,
Christ can turn into hope, joy and jubilation,
If we surrender to his offer of sweet salvation.

So come all you weary, down-trodden and oppressed,
He will shower you with love, joy, peace and rest
For Christ made your heart and He knows it best,
Just call His name and be eternally blessed!

MT 2019

Matthew 11:28 NKJV [28]
Come to Me, all you who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.

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;

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
