It’s Never Too Late

After 72 years of life,
you’d figure I have it all together.
Live my life to the fullest,
and ready to live forever.

Do I consider my life a success?
Not by any means.
Did I ever realize my potential?
I think only in my dreams.

But yet, I believe our potential,
can be reached by more than one event.
Not just because of our habits,
but situations that have come and went.

It’s never too late to change our life,
and push for our potential.
God wants us to invest in life,
put our purpose into actions, living intentional.

Without a vision, a man perishes,
with a vision, he has a future.
And God wants it bright and full,
as we use our talents and mature.

Everyone has their own,
God-given talent and ability.
To be used for Kingdom purposes,
bringing glory to God’s Majesty.

Our lives become more like Jesus,
as we pursue intentional living.
Just as Jesus lived on Earth,
we become more loving and giving.

Our life is lived to the fullest,
and the journey is continual.
then we can see the end result,
living to God’s potential.

And at the final judgment call,
when the life we lived is openly transparent.
We want to hear Jesus say,
“Well done, My good and faithful servant.”

The Spirit Living In Me

Inspired by the MercyMe song, “Greater.

The same Spirit that lives in Jesus,
is the Spirit living in me.
There is nothing I can’t do,
and nothing I can’t be.

I can do all things,
through Christ, Who strengthens me.
He has paid all of my debt,
and forever set me free.

I am the head,
and not the tail.
Jesus says, “Abide in Me,
and you will never fail.”

He is solid Rock,
on which I stand.
All other ground,
is sinking sand.

He is my Savior,
He’s ever so near.
He erases doubt,
and casts out fear.

He makes the darkness,
ever so bright.
And through Him,
I share the Light.

He makes me succeed,
and fills my destiny.
Because praise and worship,
are the heavenly key.

He forgives me daily,
and removes my sin.
And because of Jesus,
I am guaranteed to win.

So surrender your life,
and live in His love.
And one day, go Home,
to heaven above.

Why Man?

When God created man,
he was made in God’s Own Image.
He gave him all he’d need in life,
there in the garden, including a wife.

He gave him all knowledge,
and his freedom of choice.
He lacked little in power and wealth,
he even had reign over Satan himself.

Adam gave every animal its name,
plant and tree, and every fruit.
It’s hard to comprehend all Adam could do,
far more I’m sure, than both me and you.

He tended the garden in Paradise,
the place one day we’ll finally see.
God walked and talked with Adam daily,
as God and man were in unity.

But one day Adam negated his power,
and did not put Satan under his feet.
Thus, a breach was now caused by man,
but thank God He had a Sovereign Plan.

God did sacrifice His Own Son,
so man could receive his true destiny.
By Jesus’ blood and the cross,
the debt was paid that covered our loss.

The choice is ours to accept this gift,
and return to fellowship with God.
We have the choice- it’s our free will,
the doors have been opened and Jesus paid the bill.

So the question is asked of you,
the world or Jesus, the Son of God?
Who will you choose this day?
Choose Jesus, He’s the Truth, the Light, and the Way.

Accept the Light, Be Radiant Bright

Peter Baldwin is on holiday vacation. His weekly poem schedule returns soon.


Believe in Jesus Christ,
who died for you and me.
He paid the price for all,
with His Blood at Calvary.

His Blood is just enough,
to cover all of our sin.
Because of His Grace & Love,
one day we will enter in.

A home is laid in Paradise,
paved with streets of gold.
Our mansions are prepared as well,
just as we’ve been told.

We will stand before Him,
and worship all day long.
With hymns of praise,
and other glorious song.

I’m sure you want to be present,
so you must have the Key.
Jesus Christ is the only way,
that salvation will ever be.

Accepting Him as Lord & Savior,
is changing darkness to Light.
By giving Him your heart,
in eternity, you’ll be radiant bright.

A Child’s Prayer

“Now I lay me down to sleep,
I pray the Lord my soul to keep.
If I should die before I wake,
I pray the Lord my soul to take.”

The prayer of a little child,
so tender, meek, and mild.
Asking for love and assurance,
trusting the Lord in reverence.

A time of life, so simple,
yet it sets a good example.
The start of a life of prayer,
to the Father that does care.

With our foundations set in stone,
we know we’ll never be alone.
He’ll walk with us, hand in hand,
and carry us, when needed, in the sand.

We’ll grow more day by day,
as we continue to live and pray.
Longing one day to leave this place,
and finally see Jesus, face to face.

On that day, how glorious it’ll be,
as we continue to celebrate eternity.
From a little child-like prayer,
and now we’re finally there.

We’ll walk those streets of gold,
hear and see, all we’ve been told.
To the Father, Son, and Holy Ghost,
all in praise with the Heavenly Host.

The Importance of Prayer

The alarm clock goes off and what’s the use,
I’m tired, but a voice says, “That’s no excuse.”
It’s time to get up and begin a new day,
so down on your knees and begin to pray.

Refreshing the Lord within my heart,
asking for strength to do my part.
In all of life’s stormy weather,
with the Lord at my side, We do it together.

Pour forth your Spirit, Almighty God we pray,
that I may be touched in my soul today.
I need His guidance in all that I do,
that in everything, I may glorify You.

For it’s only by Your love and power,
that We have each cherished hour.
So let’s not waste a moment more,
Pour, sweet Spirit, pour.

You are the Lord of lords and King of kings,
Lord, You are my everything.
Without You Lord, I don’t exist,
help me Lord, to not resist.

You are to me the Source of Life,
You are the Blessing I find within my wife.
You are the Steadfast Help in a time of need,
You are the Eternal Hope in Whom I feed.

As I walk in the valley ever so low,
I trust in the Lord wherever I go.
Surrounded on each side by walls of land,
covered in time by God’s own hand.

A valley so humble and truly unique,
a place of solace, a glorious retreat.
So Lord, always keep me in Your care,
and one day in eternity, I will be there.
