Faithful Keeper

The valley of the shadow of death
Is wide and dark and deep,
And the climb up the mountain of righteousness,
Is narrow, winding and steep,

But the Good Shepherd leads in both places,
For He loves and cares for His sheep,
And no matter what terrain or trials we face,
His lambs He will faithfully keep.

MT  2018

Good Shepherd

The Good Shepherd watched from a distance,
While I grazed in the field of sin,
Till I finally came to my senses,
And cried out, “Lord Jesus, come in!’

The Good Shepherd who once stood afar,
Now guides my heart, mind and soul,
And I’m safe in His heavenly pasture land,
Restored, reconciled and made whole.

MT 2018

NKJV  Joh 10:11  “I am the good shepherd. The good shepherd gives His life for the sheep.

The Reward

One day I will hear the welcoming voice,
Of the God who spoke all into being,
And my eyes will behold the King of kings,
When my faith is rewarded by seeing.

MT 2018

NKJV  2Co 5:7  For we walk by faith, not by sight.

Surety

Christ’s lavish love washing over me,
Bathed in His goodness and purity,
Cleansing my eyes to clearly see,
His kingdom and power with clarity,
His cross my salvation and surety,
I am His for all time and eternity!

MT   2018

NKJV John 15:9  “As the Father loved Me, I also have loved you; abide in My love.

River’s End

The river continues to flow,
Though we can’t always see ’round the bend,
But those who follow Christ Jesus the Lord.
Find an ocean of love at the end.

MT   2018

Tapestry

Time may heal
But the scars remain
And the Master Artist
Mixes joy and pain
Into life’s rich tapestry
And while I can’t explain
He makes both work for good
And our eternal gain.

MT   2018

NKJV  Rom 8:28  And we know that all things work together for good to those who love God, to those who are the called according to His purpose.

Lion and Lamb

Only the Lion of Judah can slay,
The savage beast within,
And only the blood of the spotless Lamb,
Can save us from drowning in sin.

MT   2018
