Face in the Mirror

Have you ever looked in a mirror,
and what did you see?
Was it a reflection of your face,
what else could it be?

A mirror shows a dirty face,
or a messy head of hair.
But that’s not the only thing,
that’s in the mirror there.

If you look past the reflection you see,
it may really amaze you.
Because the God of love is there,
always, in everything we go through.

God wants us to know and see,
we’re the head and not the tail.
When we see God in all we do,
He will conquer when we see fail.

Stand at the mirror and close your eyes,
then tell me what you see.
You are now looking in the Spirit,
and that’s the reason you are free.

We need to look past ourselves,
and remember it’s God and us.
And from the us that people see,
people will see, In God we Trust.

Remember when you look in the mirror,
you do not just see your face.
But you see our loving Savior,
in all His mercy and grace.

Talking with a Friend

Tomorrow, by the time it gets here,
is no longer tomorrow, but today.
I can’t remember what’s happening now,
I just hope the past doesn’t go away.

The only thing I can recall,
is how things used to be.
I just don’t understand the changes,
I don’t fit in and that worries me.

But I found a friend who talks to me,
And we talk about the past and reminisce.
It is good and he understands,
about all the things I miss.

I love to talk about family,
for now, I remember all their names.
And when we have a family gathering,
I still remember how to play some games.

Cards are much more rusty,
I haven’t played in so long.
I’d be embarrassed to sit and play,
Everything would probably go wrong.

There is no magic pill to change a life,
and bring back all that is lost.
But if there was, I’d surely pay,
whatever might be the cost.

One day it will finally happen,
across the earth from land to land.
The final trumpet blast will sound,
and all who know Him will understand.

Yesterday, today, and tomorrow,
the fight for justice and liberty.
All will bow before the King,
for all eternity.

In the Box, Or Out!

Where would you like to be,
in the box or out?
God has given everyone the choice,
He will support you, no doubt.

Are you accustomed to change,
or does it fill you with fears?
You close the box tighter,
and plug up your ears.

You want the days all the same,
from sunrise to sunset.
You want no cares or worries,
and you don’t want to fret.

But is that all there is to life,
a box: four walls, ceiling, a floor?
Life needs to be expanded,
God meant it for so much more.

He wants us to stretch,
and reach for the stars.
Break through the walls,
and destroy the bars.

To be a person of influence,
a leader after God’s own heart.
Reach beyond worldly limits,
be a true man of God, set apart.

A box is not for confining a life,
but a box is for wrapping a present.
It could be a box from one to one,
or it could be something heaven-sent.

God wants only the best for His children,
He desires to pour blessing upon blessing.
God’s promises are Yea and Amen,
promises: never fail, no guessing.

And every one pertains to us,
as we walk life through.
And shows how much He cares,
and all that He will do.

God’s plans for us are great,
we can be what He wants us to be.
We are children of God,
descendants of His family tree.

Each and every one of us,
are given potential and talent.
God knows our life and plans,
wants us not to be absent.

So get out of the box,
destroy it so you can’t return.
Live your life out to the full,
trusting God always, and never turn.

God will never fail,
He’s proven it, time and time again.
He’ll carry us through each day,
from beginning to end.

Seek God and He will answer,
He promises you’ll never be alone.
He’s the foundation of your life,
He is life’s cornerstone.

Open the Door

May I be the messenger,
to change hopelessness to hope.
And serves for Jesus Christ,
who gives peace for us to cope.

His Word is power and strength,
He renews our lives each day.
When we speak it out loud,
we keep the enemy at bay.

He gives wisdom to all who ask,
and patience, if that’s the need.
He never leaves or forsakes us,
and His example will always lead.

He helps us to shine,
darkness diminished by His glorious Light.
And the more we walk with Him,
the more we shine so bright.

God doesn’t work from the outside in,
He works from the inside out.
He renews and refreshes our heart,
as we learn what He is about.

God has given us a free will,
so serving Him is our choice.
And all we need to do,
is ask Him with our voice.

It’s not a major climatic event,
it’s simple in what you do.
God’s love will never fail,
He is always faithful and true.

Jesus stands at the door and knocks,
surrender your heart and open the door.
Jesus will clean up your life,
with Him, you won’t need any more.

I am a Candle

To my wife, whom God gave the revelation.

Have you ever wondered about a candle,
besides the fact that it gives light?
Let’s examine each part closer,
it has more usage than just that night.

A candle is made of wax and wick,
yet when it burns, it’s so much more.
It changes into another substance,
it’s liquid at its core.

The liquid is a pliable heart,
one the Lord can work with.
As the wax continues to cool,
it becomes hard and stiff.

The wax when hard,
is like a stony heart.
It can be deformed and cold,
not accepting what God wants to impart.

The wick that’s used to burn the candle,
is the will of our soul.
It needs the fire of the Holy Spirit,
to make us complete and whole.

So the candle relates to our life in Christ,
each element an essential part.
We need the Holy Spirit’s constant flame,
to soften and subdue our heart.

So every time you look at a candle,
don’t just see the wax and wick.
See the liquid and the flame,
and all that’s there, in the candle stick.

Remember the Holy Spirit lives inside of us,
so keep His flame pure and bright.
Let it shine in power and love,
as we spread God’s glorious light.

His Death was Complete

There is something I’d like to tell you,
that you may not have thought about.
When Jesus came and died for us,
not a single soul was left out.

God, who knows the entire future,
forever, throughout all eternity.
Knows everyone that will come to Him,
yet still made a way for you and me.

Jesus asked three times,
if the cup could be taken.
But surrendered to the Father’s Will,
caused the world to be shaken.

Jesus was faithful to the very end,
He endured worse than we ever could.
Even the Father had turned away,
as He hung on that cross of wood.

Yet Jesus was the only One,
who could ever pay our debts.
God’s own spotless Lamb,
who suffered without regret.

What more could the Love of God,
have given as a sacrifice?
His One and Only spotless Son,
no other could have paid the price.

Now that Jesus has paved the way,
think hard about the choice.
Choose Jesus and Eternal Life,
call out to Him and life your voice.

Six Steps Down

Heaven is high above the Earth,
and we seek it for all it’s worth.
Father, Son, & Holy Ghost,
the Trinity with the heavenly Host.

But because of God’s Love,
He sent Jesus from above.
A bloody sacrifice to pay for sin,
a battle man could never win.

Jesus left his Holy Throne,
so in life we’re not alone.
Only Jesus could prepare the way,
so we’d be free from sin today.

It took six steps from heaven to earth,
and four completed before His birth.
He gave up his divine form,
to rescue us from a sin-filled storm.

All He had to do before His ministry,
to pay for sin and set man free.
He emptied Himself of any rights,
He fasted 40 days and 40 nights.

He became a man,
according to the Father’s plan.
He opened the door for a crooked and perverse generation,
to redeem the world through salvation.

He had no desire for worldly fame,
God and human, one and the same.
He took on the role of a servant,
He came to renew God’s covenant.

He willingly gave up his very breath,
He was obedient to the point of death.
The only sacrifice that could make a way,
His precious blood covered all sin that day.

He died a terrible death, enduring the cross,
it was all for gain and not a loss.
Jesus what was impossible for man,
six steps down, God’s merciful plan.
