outside the church

Outside the Church

Four walls can a prison make
But prison bars confine
Limit access, restrict body & the mind
However, access to the Sublime
Was never meant to be denied
To anyone

Christ, God, Holy Spirit
Do not just exist, live
In a building one day a week
His name, face, presence
Everywhere we may seek

So His name do not speak
Only in a building
Say it out loud everywhere
Stores, neighbors, from your office chair
Say His name out loud
Be it to one person only
or in a denser crowd

Just say it with great joy
His name is oh so dearly needed
satan’s darkness it has the power to destroy
At one word, CHRIST,
The demons flee,
Fall & tremble on their knees

Carry Him out of that church building
Be His witness, messenger, everywhere
To others His great love, surpassing joy
You will be privileged to share 
Be His hands, His feet, His mouth, His heart
Give to others His glorious, new, fresh start

Only 1/3 or 1/2

Only 1/3 or 1/2
(one-third or one-half?)


When in cooking 
Is not used a whole ingredient
End products most likely
Become only incomplete
Never of your original intent 

It will look or taste bad
Or fall apart
You will have failed
Before you even start

God’s intention was
For us to give our whole self
Our Whole Heart
So to us His full, total, complete
Beauty, Glory He could impart!

To experience joy unlike
Any other
In love we would all be
Able to live 
As sisters & brothers

But if you hold back
Do not give your full self
That slice, piece to God you refuse
You are only giving satan a foothold
That fragment he will be
most certainly to use!

And you will miss
The incredible, unending gift
God wants to give 
Does not want you to live
Empty, guessing

So, unless you give one-hundred percent
You cannot receive the full blessing 
You will lose the completeness  
That which you were meant to possess
Of His Eternal, Forever Gift
Of that, any part do you want to lose?

Like A Sore Thumb

Like A Sore Thumb

Let me say to begin
Never were we meant
To fit in
Our most gracious leader
Was despised
Then & now by a world that denies
His existence!

In pain He tried to lead
And with loving words
Our souls will feed
But on us Heaven will make
Some demands
If you love me, you will obey
My commands
He tells us

Christ’s church, family, 
Is meant to be
And is to be seen
As different from the world so lost
We are to follow His example
For our lives no matter what it costs

So we are to walk, talk, 
Eat, sleep, even smell
Different from a world
Which only can tell
Of satan’s acidic corruption
That insidious, deceitful destruction
Of the human soul
Christ came to release us 
From all that demonic control!

So, live in it, but be not of it
We are to stick out as a sore thumb
So a generation thru you may come
To know the living Christ
To be the light, the salt
To receive His true call!

Shake off satan’s chains of darkness
Struggle, forge ahead, do your best
Reach for Christ
And thru His total bodily sacrifice
On a bloody Roman cross
Count all worldly gain a loss
And receive His Paradise!!

Upside Down or Right Side Up!

Upside Down or Right Side Up?

A world in chaos
Lacking a clear direction
Things, ideas, get tossed aside
Each day, let go
Doesn’t this show
A world in confusion
Upside down?

Where Up is Down
& Down is Up
Restless words 
Tossed about on 
Distressed waves 
Of anxious noise
Peace on some days
Seems almost unheard

But someone stands
Knocking
On everyone’s heart
Longing to be allowed to impart
His Peace-filled Spirit 

Bring about a new day
Create within us a new way
To live
Trying Himself to give
To His world a new direction
Turn it Right Side Up
Where Up is truly Up
& Down is truly Down

So do not be afraid
To go against the grain
Of a lost, bewildered world
And for yourself & others gain
A better sense of how to live
Where confusion does not reign
Under this, His One Holy Name,
Christ Jesus!



Demons Fright

Demon’s Fright
(Your Light)

With four demons around
My throat
You came in and satan’s
Hold You broke,
Lord Jesus

At Your name the darkness
Scattered
With Your Name they fled
You solved the matter,
Lord God

They ran, disappeared in
In terror
Knowing their end is near
Lost their power,
Praise You, Lord Jesus

So no longer do we need
To fear
satans’s evil power
with You so near,
King Jesus

So, thru my faith & loyalty
To you
Once again, your love
You will prove
When You, Most Gracious King,
With Your voice You will ring
In a new heaven, completely new earth
Leaving all of us reborn
An eternal, bodily new birth!
Praise You, Lord Yahweh!!!

Thank You!

Thank You!

Thank You,
Dear Lord,
For allowing me an orphan to be
From birth
Never quite feeling I fit in
On this green earth
So the stairways,
Those steps to heaven,
My eternal soul could win!

What an enemy purposed 
For evil
You turned into a blessing
But it did not come without
A great testing

Your Son fought ahead of me
Clearing a path so I could see
The gate of heaven of me just ahead
Just as the words spoken in your Book
Most clearly & succinctly had said!

Praise You Lord, God, King Jesus & Holy Spirit!!
