Entwined

Divinity and humanity,
Beautifully entwined,
God and Man,
Gracious and kind,
Descends from glory,
Lost souls to find,
With grace and by love,
Broken hearts He will bind.

MT 2019

Luke 19:10 NKJV
[10] for the Son of Man has come to seek and to save that which was lost.”

Sowing

Many might think me less a man,
For the myriad tears I have shed,
But I remember my Savior-King,
Who wept at the tomb of the dead.

The world might think it weakness,
To cry out from the depths of the soul,
But I will continue to pour out my heart,
To the God who can cleanse and make whole.

MT 2019

NKJV Psa 126:5  Those who sow in tears shall reap in joy.

Where?

Where does God hide the wind?
On a still and windless day.
And where does the darkness take refuge?
When the sunlight chases it away.

MT 2019

Job 38:19-20 NKJV

[19] “Where is the way to the dwelling of light? And darkness, where is its place, [20] That you may take it to its territory, That you may know the paths to its home?

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

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.
