“Oh Brother, oh Sister, Rejoice in the Lord!”

I hope the words encourage you, brothers and sisters in Christ.

“Oh Brother, oh Sister, Rejoice in the Lord!”

If you feel weak, when you feel so weak
Remember that the Lord is your strength.
If you can’t rejoice in present circumstances,
Oh brother, oh sister, rejoice in the Lord!

When things seem out of control
Remember that God’s still in control.
When the world seems crazier than before
Remember that God’s still on His throne!

When everything seems wrong in the world and humanity
Remember that God will make everything right one day.
When there seems to be so much negativity around
Spread positivity, praise and rejoice in the Lord!

Rejoice in the Lord despite the darkness of the times
For He is your joy and your strength and your song.
Oh brother, oh sister, rejoice in the Lord your God
For He is you light and your hope and your life!

Bring your troubles, bring your pain to the Lord;
It’s difficult now but things will change, so rejoice in the Lord.
This life isn’t easy and problems are bound to come
But keep your head up, soldier of Christ, rejoice in the Lord!

God sees it all and knows the reasons for everything
But we don’t have all the answers so let us rest in His goodness;
We can’t discover all of the whys behind all of the tragedies
So let us trust in God’s perfect will and knowledge.

Let us rejoice in God now while we have time and breath.
Come now, brother, come now, sister, rejoice in the Lord.
It’s because of all that’s happening and all that we don’t know
That we need to trust in the living God and rejoice in Him always!
…….
Glory to God Alone.

“Hark! Progressivism’s heralds sing!”
(SATIRE) written by me.

Hark! Progressivism’s Heralds Sing!

Hark! Progressivism’s heralds sing:
Hail Progress, Lord of Time,
Retrograding is a wrong that can’t be excused!
Clear the path, make way for Progress,
Cease procrastinating, embrace change,
Discard antiquated beliefs, they’re strange.

Get in line, the Progress train is boarding,
Don’t fall behind, don’t slack, don’t miss it,
Get on, get in, come on, you’ll win,
Progress is the way the world moves,
Good intentions pave the road,
We’ll make wide the path and broad the road,
We’ll see the coming of a new age!

Dance to the sound of postmodernism,
March to the beat of Progressivism,
Sleep in the beds of conformity,
Die in the arms of Progress,
Sacrifice all that you are for it!

“Glory to You, God!”

“Glory to You, God!”

O Lord, You are worthy
Of all the praise I can give,
Of all the glory and honor,
Of all the love I can show.

Everything I sing or say or do
Seems to be so small and not enough
Compared to what You deserve
And what Your majesty merits.

You alone are God,
Incomparable One,
Living and True,
Holy and righteous.

You are God alone
Without equal or rival,
No one can compare
To You, living Lord!

You are Creator,
You are Sustainer,
You are Maker,
You are Sovereign.

You are the Potter,
You are the Painter,
You are the Artist,
You are the Sculptor.

You paint the sky
With such masterful strokes,
You light up the night
With the stars You let shine.

God, Your works are beautiful,
They’re aesthetic masterpieces,
My heart is overwhelmed
By Your limitless creativity.

With such design and complexity
You made all things You wanted to;
The inner workings and intricacies
Display Your omniscience and omnipotence.

You have made all there is,
You have created everything,
Everything exists for Your glory,
To glorify You and praise You.

You are holy and just and righteous,
You are merciful and kind and loving,
You are the only living and true God,
You are unchanging, Immortal, only wise God.

Blessed by Your holy name,
You are God forever blessed,
You’re my salvation and hope,
You’re my strength and song.

From everlasting to everlasting
You alone are God Almighty,
I will praise You now and forever,
You are most worthy and deserving!

You are the hope of all sinners,
You alone are able to save the lost,
You are mighty to save even the vilest,
You can forgive even the worst sinners.

Your love is perfect love,
Your mercy without equal,
Your salvation is true and sure,
You keep all promises You make.

Who is like You, Lord?
There is none like You!
You alone are the living God
Forever glorified and blessed!
………………..
Glory to God Alone.

“God is Not Dead!”

“God is Not Dead!”

We can hear them saying: “We do not believe in your God,
But even if He was alive before, He’s obviously now dead!
Tell us, believers, if He exists, where is your God now?
Where (where) is (is) your (your) God (God) now (now)?!”

We declare confidently: God is not dead! He was never dead!
He has always existed, He never died to any, only ignored!
He always was, and is, and always will be
Everlasting, unchanging, Almighty God!
