NEED TO MAKE HOPE REAL

We have this hope of Christ’s return

He’s coming soon to take us home

Yet now, how shall we live?

Repent and be holy

as God is holy

But how can we cope

while evil runs rampant?

I’ll experience the blessings

connected to Christ

only He can give me

                                                       every day

Experience the joy

enveloping my soul

Christ hears my song

as I sing of Him

You are my God

my Savior, my companion

You lead me on

the path to salvation

You embrace my heart

with loving kindness and mercy

You delight my soul

as I sing of You daily

Those who gather around me hear

a song of praise

a song of thanksgiving

for You have answered

                                                 my deepest prayer

 

Don’t forget to purchase my Christian novel, “The Casting of Crowns,” on Amazon or any online bookseller.  May God richly bless you!  Betsy O. Borchardt

THANKING GOD ALONG THE WAY

We call on God with thanksgiving in our hearts

For He has loved us throughout our lives

Even when we’ve rebelled against Him

He’s provided

Making the rain fall

Giving a harvest

Providing abundant life

 

In times of drought and catastrophic flames

Flood, wind, and destruction

He calls us to Himself

To acknowledge Him as the Source of all

Sustainer of life

Our Creator

 

God admonishes our sinfulness

Calling us to repentance

For we know not the hour of our death

Our God desires us

To have eternal life with Him

He would bond with us

If we would give our allegiance to Him

Vow obedience

To all Ten Commandments

As they were given by Him on Mt. Sinai

As a sign of our love for Him

In the act of obedience

We thank Him for the rich life

He has endowed us with

 

 

 

GIVING TIME TO OUR GOD

Upon arising
Before the hustle and bustle
Demands our attention
As first light shines
Upon delicate branches
After the morning star disappears
Spring flowers reach East
For light given by God
The Bible awaits us
And on our lips
Words of thanksgiving
To the Lord
Gently pierce morning silence
As we meditate on
Our Morning Star, Jesus
Our Savior and Friend
Who speaks to us
Through the Bible, His Word
Casting our fears aside
And in making this connection
Try giving God prayers of thanksgiving
As each day unfolds
With a spiritual sparkle
