BEGINNING NEW LIFE

In Eternity, God, Heaven, Jesus on January 28, 2015 at 7:20 pm

When Jesus arose up from the dead, it was

The end of death as the end!

“Death hath no more dominion over you,”

Life will not end or bend.

.

.

This life will not bend or shrink in size

But in immortality it

Will grow and last forever in

God’s vast eternity!

.

.

Cannot you see, cannot you hear (loud)

The voices of the past?

They do go on forever!  It is a

Fact!  They last and last!

.

.

My thoughts are with the ransomed ones,

Oh yes!  They do live on

In heaven, new life forever!

A fact to build upon!

.

.

Call on the name of Jesus for

Forgiveness from you sins.

That is when you find His life!

Yes, that is when new life begins!

JOB AND YOU

In Christian, God on January 27, 2015 at 6:17 pm

Satan can hit you pretty hard.

Sometimes when you are not thinking

Like, at night, when you try to sleep,

Your eyes stay wide, not blinking.

.

.

Restlessness, that is what we call it,

But when night after night

We think, we pace, we want to scream!

We know we are in a fight!

.

.

But thank God we have Job around,

Self-pity, was as far

As God let Job debilitate (*)

Before He stopped the car.

.

.

When Job got out and peace returned

And fortune once more smiled,

His faithless friends left him untouched

Truly undefiled!

.

.

So three good men that Ezekiel names;

Noah, Daniel and Job, (**)

Three men that passed the test of tests

Now wearing their white robes!

.

.

(*) Weaken

(**) Ezekiel 14:14-20

CANNOT TAKE IT WITH YOU

In Lord, Savior on January 26, 2015 at 8:11 pm

I guess we learn this when we are older,

For long ago we were much bolder

To ask for just anything at all

To satisfy our desire, et al.

.

.

Considering the price we would pay

To satisfy our lists everyday

I am thankful now that the Lord said, “No!”

I do not own land, what a way to go!

.

.

What with taxes, problems everywhere

Too greedy to give or even to share.

Riches can bring us nothing but pain!

After we have all, where is the gain?

.

.

Cannot take it up there!  Empty we go.

Whatever we take, we cannot bestow!

With nothing up there to buy or sell

Everything is free!  So how can one tell–

.

.

What he has more than anyone else?

More and more to cram up on the shelf

To put in the bank or to buy more land.

Then the Savior asks, “What is that in your hand?”

.

.

A sinner won from certain hell fire?

A brother saved from selfish desire?

Can this not be what we best describe

As a sole winners very highest prize?

.
