The Source

The “Big Bang Theory” of Creation,
could it really be?
Take a minute and read on,
I’ll open your eyes so you see.

Science thinks it has the answers,
then it changes its point of view.
It has a record of rearranging,
the facts it reports to you.

If everything came from the “Big Bang”,
such a long, long time ago,
how come it hasn’t happened again,
in eons of time; does Science know?

Let me ask you an important question.
Who is the source of all life on Earth?
Was it a cosmic explosion,
or a power that brought life to birth?

How can everything be perfectly aligned,
and all natural resources available?
If all started from an explosion,
what kept everything intact & formidable?

There had to be some kind of glue,
that kept everything needed together.
Yet, knowing that is impossible,
I offer you the Author who’s better.

If you’ve ever witnessed the birth of a child,
from conception through delivery,
you will stand in awesome wonder,
of the Creator’s availability.

Only a Supreme Being whose name is God,
could have provided such a plan.
From the first day of Creation,
to the sinful heart of man.

God, in His infinite wisdom,
sees the beginning and the end.
He provides eternity,
for those He calls His friend.

How do you become a friend of God?
You believe in God’s own Son.
Accept the fact He paid the price,
through blood, not works; Redemption is done.

God is the only Source of life,
and the Bible is our direction.
No other way can it be done,
and to this rule, NO EXCEPTION!

Tools of the Trade

My boss is a Jewish carpenter,
the ultimate Master of all of His tools.
He wants us all to be His students,
doers of His Word, and be not fools.

Sandpaper, foundation, wood, & joust,
a hammer, saw, plane, & a screw.
T-square, plumb line, level, & drill,
tool belt holding- tape measure & glue.

All are needed believe it or not,
when Jesus becomes your focus in life.
He teaches and prepares us with all we need,
to face the world and all of its strife.

Sandpaper is first to be applied,
to a heart that is rough and scarred with sin.
Sanding with the blood of Jesus Christ,
that’s smooth and cleanses your heart within.

After the sanding, we need to begin
a firm foundation of prayer & talk.
The foundation’s our grounding in the Word,
knowledge of the Truth to strengthen our walk.

After the foundation is laid & set,
the Word is framed & raised up high.
Building a shelter in time of storm,
with walls that reach to Heaven’s sky.

The wood is strong, but can’t stand alone,
it needs the joust to anchor the frame.
Just as we can’t stand alone,
the Holy Spirit supports Glory to Jesus’ Name.

Holding the joust firm to the wood,
the nails are hammered deep & true.
Reminding us of the gracious Cross,
where our Savior bled for me & you.

The saw then trims those extra pieces,
that causes us to stumble & fall.
The plane then tune the jagged edges,
which blocks us from serving our Master’s call.

Before the frame is put in order,
distance is measured, it’s leveled & set.
Just as the Spirit gives us balance,
and reminds us that He’s not finished yet.

T-square makes sure that the joints are perfect,
so everything fits right into place.
It’s by the Fruits of the Holy Spirit,
each day we are able to show forth His grace.

So take the plumb line & have it fall,
and guide your life along it’s track.
But if you stumble & fall off course,
our Loving Savior will help you back.

Pick up your tool belt and all of your tools,
take some steps back and have a look.
See your work & all you’ve done,
and thank the Lord that you followed the Book.

So look to the Day (and it won’t be long,)
when the Master calls all carpenters yonder.
On that day we’ll get our Master’s degree,
and through His City eternally wander.
