Heaven “Scent”

Aah…the simplicity of rhyme
Weaving yarns that tell of time
Time spent alone with pen in hand
Waiting for His next command
To tell this story with much intent
To ensure the reader’s time well spent
Trailing each thought like a bloodhound
When searching out the true meaning
Enlightenment is found
In every word etched on the page
Therein lies meaning to engage
The heart the mind the body and soul
The depth of the Savior’s love unfolds
The truth behind His loving eyes
No longer veiled as in Moses’ disguise
The reader now is concentrating
The author’s point is captivating
Simple words used to gain the attention
Of the heart that beats
In full submission
To God, The Father, God, The Son
Through His Holy Spirit we have won
A mentor, advisor, confidant and friend
A personal trainer to the end
Of this mortal life here on earth
Our only reason to be given birth
To love The Father, love The Son
Who died on a tree for everyone
No, you can’t escape this story’s
Ultimate, true meaning
To say you have is just deceiving
For the heart, the body, mind and soul
The will of the author is under control
Of the greatest force, who invented time
For me to tell this story
Through verse and rhyme
Capturing the thoughtful curiosity
Of faithful readerS just like me
Who believe these simple words
For you, were meant
The sweet aroma of His love
Is Heaven “scent”

Sinners Like Me

It’s been said…
“Those who forget history are
Doomed to repeat it.”
But I choose to overlook my past
Disregard it intentionally…to leave it
Abandoned, alone and discarded
Letting go of the old
To embrace the new
Forgetting what is behind
I choose to move forward
Keeping only sweet memories
I bid the darkness …adieu!
Walking the path of forgiveness
I choose to receive His peace
And accept…
That what Jesus did on The Cross
He did specifically
For sinners like me

Fill Us

Fill us with Your wisdom, Your knowledge
Let decernment be our Teacher
Open our minds to understanding
With empathy for all men and creatures

Fill us with Your loving kindness
Let us overlook each other’s wrongs
Open our hearts to forgiveness
Let right standing with You be our song

Help us to be Your Hands, Your feet
Let our testimony reclaim the lost
Knowing the price You paid for our sin
An unconditional love at great cost

Fill us with the desire to know You
Yearning to seek Your face
For our days here on earth are numbered
Fill us with Your mercy, Your grace

Let Your Spirit take over our being
We surrender our ways and renew our minds
Bind Satan and keep us from danger
Clear a path to transcend space and time

We praise You for the eternity waiting
A promise You gave with Your Word
Give us courage to speak the name Jesus
Until every last sinner has heard

The Word of The Lord God, our Savior
Trusting in His sovereign truth
His yoke is light, His burden is easy
An eternity in Heaven… our proof

Call Me Friend

Will you leave this world
Just like you found it?
You know…
Life is only a chasing after the wind


Dying to self
To be born again

Toiling and striving
Every waking hour
Working and laboring
Until the day’s end

Do you search for knowledge
Discernment and wisdom?


Do you seek treasures of Kingdoms?
Gold dust in the wind


Life here on earth is
Right up to the end
If you don’t know The Savior
The Master, King Jesus

If you don’t know
His name
And He can’t call you

The Unveiled Heart

Today’s post is inspired by the reading of God’s word in 2 Corinthians 3:12-18 (NIV)

With unveiled faces
We reflect The Lord’s Glory
Only those in Christ
Have the veil removed
With unveiled hearts we are transformed
The resulting likeness to Him
His followers will prove
That we are being transformed
Even when we stumble
We are being transformed
When we trip and fall
His ever increasing Glory
Covers our sin debt
Paid in full on The Cross
Paid once
For all
Since we have such great hope
Our minds are sharpened
Because we believe
We will enter His rest
Where The Spirit of The Lord is
Is freedom
Freedom for all those
Who choose His Best
So, do not be downhearted
Do not be afraid
The unveiled resemblance
Of His likeness is stayed
On all who believe
That Christ is our Savior
On all who believe
In the words that He said
Written in His blood
On the unveiled hearts
Of every sheep willing
To surrender and be led

You are treasured and significant
You are forever loved
Delight in the wondrous truth
Nothing can separate you from My love

Encounter My loving presence
Sing songs of joy and be glad
Your name is written in The Lamb’s book of life
What an astonishing priviledge you have

To connect with Me each morning
Setting the tone for the rest of the day
Delight in the wondrous truth
Stay connected with me and pray

For I am The Alpha and The Omega
First and Last, Beginning and End
I am the Root and the Offspring of David Yes, I am coming again

To receive You unto Myself, forever
On that glorious day
Taking captives under My wing
Yes, I return to take you away

For You are treasured and significant
You are dearly loved
Delight in the wondrous truth
Nothing can separate You from My Love
