Time to Pray

Time to Pray

By on Aug 12, 2013 in Poetry | 0 comments

I got up early one morning and rushed right into the day; I had so much to accomplish that I didn’t have time to pray.Problems just tumbled about me and heavier came each task; “Why doesn’t God help me?” I wondered He said, “But you didn’t ask.”I wanted to see joy and beauty but the day toiled on, gray and bleak; I wondered why God didn’t show me. He said,”But you didn’t seek”I tried to come into God’s presence; I used all the keys at the lock. God gently and lovingly chided “My child, you didn’t knock.”I woke up early this morning And paused before entering the day. I had so much to accomplish That I had to take time to Pray. Author...

To A Christian Friend

To A Christian Friend

By on Aug 12, 2013 in Poetry | 0 comments

When the cold winds blow, Will you offer me a warm place to go? He said you would.When my tears flow free in the pain of grief, Will you weep with me? He said you would.When I’m in despair from the burden’s load, Will you stop to share? He said you would.In the joyful days when my spirit sings, Will you join in praise? He said you would.Will you be my friend, Will you walk with me Unil the journey’s end? He said you would. Jesus said, a new commandment I give unto you, That you love one another, as I have loved you, That ye also love one another. By this shall all men know that ye are my disciples, If ye have love one to another. John 13: 34 &...

Someone Died Today

Someone Died Today

By on Aug 12, 2013 in Poetry | 0 comments

Someone died without the Lord another soul lost in hell one that might in heaven be if of our Savior we did tell.How many people cross our paths each and every day did we take that moment to share God in a special way?Since actions speak as much as words and we see those who are lost we should always share our savior and how He died upon that cross.If we will just live our lives to honor our sweet Lord then others will know God’s love for our actions and words will show.Someone died somewhere today someone that we may know did we change their destiny by Gods love for them we’ve shown. For someone died alone one day nailed upon a tree and even though it was long ago He died for you and me. And if we tell each one we meet about our Saviors love then none else will die alone for the angels with hover above. Then when it’s time to face our God as He’s sitting on the throne He can say “well done my child” “you’ve help lead someone home”. ©Copyright 2001 Ruth...

The Creation

The Creation

By on Aug 12, 2013 in Poetry | 0 comments

Day 1—Unfinished Earth & Heavens; Day & Night: At the first, God created the heavens & earth, though the earth was a dark, formless waste. There was nothing to hear and nothing to see, and nothing to feel or to taste.It was totally black as He looked all around, so He ordered, “Let there be light!” “And the light,” He said, “I will surely call day, and the darkness, I will call night.” The morning came, the evening was done. He saw it was good; that ended Day One. Day 2—Earth & Sky: And He said, “Let there be an expanse to divide the waters below from above.” And they became known from that day on as the Earth and the heavens above. The morning was over, the evening was through, He saw it was good; that ended Day Two. Day 3—Dry Land & Seas; Plants & Trees: Next, He divided the dry land from the waters, and called them Earth and Seas. And grew some great vegetation next, all sorts of plants and trees. “Everything’s wonderful, in all that I see!” He saw it was good; that ended Day Three.   Day 4—Sun, Moon & Stars: Then He distinguished evening from dawn, by creating three different lights. He first put the sun in the heavens for day, then the moon in the heavens for night. Then threw in some stars, told the heavens, “Shine more, and light My new earth from now on. I don’t like the darkness, I only like light.” And so very brightly they shone. He said, “Tomorrow, I’ll create some more.” He saw it was good; that ended Day Four.   Day 5—Creatures, Above & Below: Then He said, “Let’s have some creatures in the seas and in the sky.” So the waters teemed, just like He said, and birds began to fly. So the day closed out on those alive. He saw it was good; that ended Day Five.   Day 6—Man, with Dominion Over All: Then He wanted more living creatures, like cattle and creepers and stuff, He said, “Let Us make man in Our image, these creatures aren’t enough. and give man charge over all the Earth, over creatures, great and...

Marriage Takes Three

Marriage Takes Three

By on Aug 12, 2013 in Poetry | 0 comments

I once thought marriage took Just two to make a go, But now I am convinced It takes the Lord also.And not one marriage fails Where Christ is asked to enter, As lovers come together With Jesus at the center.But marriage seldom thrives, And homes are incomplete, Till He is welcomed there To help avoid defeat.In homes where Christ is first, It’s obvious to see, Those unions really work, For marriage still takes three.Author...

And God Said No

And God Said No

By on Aug 12, 2013 in Poetry | 0 comments

I asked God to take away my pride, And God said, “No.” He said it was not for Him to take away, But for me to give up. I asked God to make my handicapped child whole, And God said, “No.” He said her spirit is, While her body is only temporary. I asked God to grant me patience, And God said, “No.” He said patience is a by-product of tribulation. It isn’t granted, it is earned. I asked God to give me happiness, And God said, “No.” He said He gives blessings, Happiness is up to me. I asked God to spare me pain, And God said, “No.” He said, “Suffering draws you apart from Worldly cares and brings you closer to Me.” I asked God to spare me pain, And God said, “No.” He said, “Suffering draws you apart from Worldly cares and brings you closer to Me.” I asked God to make my spirit grow, And God said, “No.” He said I must grow on my own, But He will prune me to make it fruitful. I asked God if He loved me, and God said, “Yes.” He gave me His only Son, who died for me. And I will be in Heaven someday Because….I believe. I asked God to help me love others As much as He loves me, And God said, “Ah finally, you have the idea.”   Claudia Minden...
