A Theist

I am a theist
And make no apologies
I believe in Jesus Christ
Not man-made ideologies
Nor in man’s speculation
Nor his pop psychologies
For only Christ can cleanse the heart
Of sin and social pathologies.

MT 2020

Colossians 2:8 NKJV 

Beware lest anyone cheat you through philosophy and empty deceit, according to the tradition of men, according to the basic principles of the world, and not according to Christ. 

Cannot?

“I cannot believe in your God,”
The atheist brashly said.
But does he believe that in his heart,
Or only in his head?

“I cannot believe in anything,
Except what my eyes can see.”
But can an atheist explain this world,
How and why it came to be?

“I cannot believe in Jesus Christ,
That He rose up from the dead.”
But doesn’t he more truly mean,
I choose not to believe instead?

MT 2020

Ecclesiastes 3:11 NKJV
He has made everything beautiful in its time. Also He has put eternity in their hearts, except that no one can find out the work that God does from beginning to end. 

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. 

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. 

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. 

Sufficient

Your grace is sufficient,
Is ever enough,
When the path is dark,
And the road gets rough,
Your grace is a beacon,
Of radiant light,
In our gloomiest hour,
And our darkest night.

MT 2019

Joh 1:16  And of His fullness we have all received, and grace for grace. 

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?
