“On Foundations of Sand”

Fallen men are always building
On foundations of sand,
They keep hoping they could be
An exception to the rule of reality.

The best of plans and intentions,
All for nothing in the end,
Exercises in futility, sad to see,
An example in action of insanity.

Building on the sand, temporal, unstable,
Leaving Christ out of it all,
World’s wisdom for the willing,
Invest in a guaranteed failure.

A bleaker future can’t be imagined,
Songs of the world lull them to sleep,
All for the body, nothing for the spirit,
Once born, dead inside, hopeless by choice.

So it’s coming down to this point in time,
Everything’s coming to some end,
It’s all coming down on their heads,
They can’t shift the blame, it’s their fault.

If you reject Christ as your life’s foundation
Then blame yourself in the end, just be honest;
It’s nobody’s fault you chose this way,
You’re just getting what you want.

Live with your choices and reap what you’ve sown,
You don’t care for God, you live like He doesn’t exist,
You’re living in your own little world
But it’s going to fall apart and burn to nothing.
…….
Glory to God Alone

“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.

“Almighty God, Be Praised”

“Almighty God, Be Praised”

These mountains You have made, God,
These trees You have given life,
This lake You have filled with water,
This sky You have stretched east, west, north, south.

You have given life to all these living things,
Your Word has created all these things I now see,
All that is in the air, on the ground, in the water,
All for Your glory, to praise Your name, Almighty God!

There is beauty in the things You have created,
Creation proclaims Your majesty, it glorifies You.
You are Sovereign God from everlasting to everlasting,
Yesterday, today and forever You are the same.

Here I am in this place for only a little time
But even in so little time I feel renewed,
A sense of wonder, a glimpse of the vastness of Earth,
My eyes have seen Your creation in a new light.

In the darkest darkness
And in the brightest light
You will still see me, God,
I am never out of Your sight.

In this body You have given me,
In this fragile vessel of flesh
Prone to sickness, death, and decay,
In it I will praise You until my very last day.

May all that is within me, Lord, praise You,
With words sincere, be they simple or grand,
In spirit and truth may I worship You;
You have saved me, I will glorify You now and forever!

“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!

“Praise God”

“Praise God”

As the Lord our God gives
So shall we all receive:
Another day,
Another eve,
The sun and moon,
The dawn and noon.
The blessings He gives
He gives because He loves.

All the good we receive
Comes from God above;
All that we need He will provide
In His way and in His time.

The hand of our Father in Heaven
Is upon us daily, hourly, in each moment,
All that He does, all that’s unseen,
All His great works, Almighty’s deeds:
Protection and guidance,
Correction and patience,
Love we cannot earn,
Grace we don’t deserve,
Mercy He has shown,
Forgiveness of sins He gives,
Salvation through Christ His Son.

God is worthy of our love,
Worthy of our sincere praise,
Worthy of the best we can give,
Worthy of glory, honor, laud, worship,
Worthy of service, worthy more than all!

May hearts burn with love and adoration
For the Creator God, for our Savior!
Holy Spirit, lead hearts to worship
The One Who’s worthy of all praise and glory,
Praise to His Name let us conceive!
Let God be praised, glory receive!
God is alive forevermore, forever glorified!
