HAVE SOME JOY!

One out of ten may enjoy poetry,

Maybe even less!

But you may know why,  why that would be

What I do the best!

.

.

Ever since my very first poem,

Accepted I have had the bug!

Even King David’s poetry, Psalms,

Not stuffed under the rug!

.

.

Sold billions of copies, in a Book,

Bible, you should know

Will sell even more until Jesus comes

Helps Christians to grow!

.

.

Millions have memorized Psalm 23

“My Shepherd…” God is near!

He leads, He feeds!  And satisfies!

What then have I to fear?

.

.

Millions take comfort, it is written,

“I will fear no evil!”

Your rod and staff comfort bring

Need not fear the devil!

.

.

Sure he tempts but he cannot force!

Christ’s table satisfies!

Better than Satan has to offer!

With his tempting lies!

.

.

What can be better than Heaven above?

Devil may promise joy,

Sure, the bilious kind ever ending with

Hangover to annoy!

.

.

And in the end, what promise have I?

Of satisfaction?  Hell!

Heaven alone, everlasting joy!

What else can ring my bell?

.

.

Or keep the bells of Heaven ringing!

It is so hard to conceive

Of a God who longs to have us

Home!  Cannot wait to receive!

.

.

Of course, the place He has prepared for us

So impossible to fathom

When God, like, passes a plate way beyond

Anything known,says, “have some”!

.

the Sam 01.17.12

DO MY WORDS MAKE…

Do my words make any sense?

Do not know but I do know this,

God’s Word, if followed,

Means forever bliss!

.

.

My God shall supply all your needs!

Kept His promise, He did and does!

“According to His riches and Glory…” above

Does not fail!  Does what He must!

.

.

Then to protect and keep special promise,

At 95 I am still here and

That means through combat in World War II!

That as First Scout, no need to fear!

.

.

Took some chances through enemy fire,

Challenged!  Stood out in plain view

So many times!  Protection complete!

God did what He promised to do!

.

.

I claimed His promise as forewarned!

By faith I dared those shots!

Seemed crazy to some, some stunts I pulled!

But according to promises, NOT!

.

.

And mothers praying away way back then!

By herself claiming promises,

Her faith showed not at all surprised!

As she was expecting this!

.

.

King of Glory, it is His delight

To prove Himself true!

To help you out miraculously!

What He promised to do!

.

.

Protection through the shadows of death! (Psalm 23)

And does God keep His Word?

I have never once heard negatively!

His promises do undergird!

.

.

As you trust Him with all your heart!

Yield not to your own whim,

Fear truly weakens in believing not!

Know you can truly trust Him!

.

.

In battles with real enemies

God’s promise is to deliver!

Many the dangers I have found deliverance!

To live in heaven forever!

.

.

Our earth, places so beautiful,

How much better must Heaven be?

.
