Though

Though the mountains may erupt with flames,
And the north wind bitterly blow,
Though the rain may flood great rivers,
Or drought make them cease to flow,
One thing is certain and secure,
Jesus Christ is Lord of all,
Sovereign Ruler of heaven and earth,
Who hears when His children call.

MT 2022

Psa 46:1 God is our refuge and strength, A very present help in trouble. 
Psa 46:2  Therefore we will not fear, Even though the earth be removed, And though the mountains be carried into the midst of the sea; 
Psa 46:3  Though its waters roar and be troubled, Though the mountains shake with its swelling. Selah 

Who Is This?

Who is this born in Bethlehem?
On a cold, crisp winter morn,
The one foretold by a prophet,
Of a virgin would be born.

Who is this born in Bethlehem?
Born the King of the Jews,
Whom shepherds came to worship,
And wise men paused to muse.

Who is this born in Bethlehem?
Whom Simeon worshiped with joy,
Lifting his voice up loud and clear,
To praise Mary’s baby Boy.

Who is this born in Bethlehem?
The One true Savior and Lord,
Born of David’s royal line,
By heaven and earth adored.

Who is this born in Bethlehem?
Who deserves all honor and glory,
The author and finisher of our faith,
The perfection of God’s love story.

Who is this born in Bethlehem?
Who has come to make all things new,
The sinless, blameless Lamb of God,
The Word of God faithful and true.

Who is this born in Bethlehem?
To reconcile God and man,
Conqueror of sin and death,
Fulfilling God’s master plan.

Who is this born in Bethlehem?
To usher in lasting shalom,
By crushing the serpent’s cursed head,
And leading His children home.

MT 2021

Mat 2:4  And when he had gathered all the chief priests and scribes of the people together, he inquired of them where the Christ was to be born.  2:5  So they said to him, “In Bethlehem of Judea, for thus it is written by the prophet:  2:6  ‘BUT YOU, BETHLEHEM, IN THE LAND OF JUDAH, ARE NOT THE LEAST AMONG THE RULERS OF JUDAH; FOR OUT OF YOU SHALL COME A RULER WHO WILL SHEPHERD MY PEOPLE ISRAEL.’ ” 

Checkmate

Sometimes I wish I was something more,
Like a rook or bishop or knight,
A piece that strikes fear in the enemies heart,
One that puts the enemy to flight.

But God calls both the high and low,
To do battle in the cosmic fight,
And now I see in Gods economy,
My wishes are not quite right.

For God can use the lowliest piece,
As an instrument of His eternal plan,
For He meets every move and counter-move,
And the board is in God’s mighty hand.

For the Lord is the great and true Mastermind,
Satan’s schemes the King can frustrate,
For He can use the lowly pawn,
To perfect His eternal checkmate.

MT 2021

Rev 17:14  These will make war with the Lamb, and the Lamb will overcome them, for He is Lord of lords and King of kings; and those who are with Him are called, chosen, and faithful.”

My Boast

Sometimes I feel like Gideon,
Facing off against a wicked host,
But the thing I take solace and comfort in,
Jesus Christ is my strength and my boast.

MT 2021

2Co 12:9  And He said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for My strength is made perfect in weakness.” Therefore most gladly I will rather boast in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest upon me.
