THE LAST DAYS

                      

The hour is upon us

The evil one lurks

seeking to cement all human beings

into people of conformity

Seldom questioning religious authority

bound to blind obedience

It never did occur to them

to seek Truth that saves

Deceived and engulfed by Satan’s cause

without being aware of their peril

Gravitating toward worldly pleasure

puffed up with deadly pride

viewing some sins as innocuous

Lost in a sea of immorality

Wise in their own eyes

who would rather not bother

leaning on Christ

but turn to idolizing self

looking for answers

in their own flawed wisdom

Some acknowledging themselves as gods

 

Turn, turn away from Satan

who has your eternal destruction in mind

Turn toward Truth, not conformity

Read the Scriptures

which testify of Jesus

Look up and focus on the Lord

Jesus Christ, the Holy One

Our only Mediator

Who longs to help us in our weakness

The Holy Spirit will spark in you

courage to change

and strength to resolve

to live for Jesus Christ alone

He’s the One who’s most worthy of praise

for He has redeemed us

Soon He will invite us

into His Heavenly Kingdom

Hold fast to His Word

 

LOOK TO THE AUTHOR OF LOVE

Who is boxed in, frozen, unloved
One not willing to connect in prayer
To the Author of love
Not willing to share
God’s endowment of love
An empty soul
For lack of trust in God’s ways
A self-sufficient being
Not willing to allow God
To transform a heart of stone
Into a living, loving heart
One prone to share a smile
A word of encouragement
Willing to share wisdom
Gained by knowing God
Sharing love expressed by forgiveness
Even of an enemy
An act of pity, of godliness
Love expressed by sacrificial giving
To help the poor and the needy
The homeless and the fatherless
These are not acts one originates
From oneself alone, but only
Through a heart connection with God
The Author of love

THE GREAT CAPTAIN

A new day is dawning.
Peace and safety are harbored in my heart
for I sought the Lord’s counsel;
Wisdom and understanding guide my sails.

The Lord is my compass;
Oars I need not
for His breath moves me
when winds are calm.

My spirit stirs within me.
I seek the Lord
for I am burdened;
My brother knows You not, Lord.

He sails into tempestuous seas
seeking adventure,
But is in danger of going down
into the abyss — an eternal death.

Lord, calm the waves.
Draw him to safe shore.
For I will seek him, teaching him Your ways.
You, the Great Captain, will direct his ship forevermore.
