My Value!!

My Value!

My value does not
come from you
But the One who
Came to recreate
Me anew
To Christ
Is all of my loyalty due

Forgive me, dear friends
If I've learned to refuse
To listen to what
You tell me to do
My trust for my value
Belongs in that One
The Only One,
Who died For me

It's in His eyes
That I sink or swim
In whom all my worth,
This world’s reality
Begins & ends!!

The Citadel

Our Citadel

There is a rumbling of the ground
A most horrific sound
Screams our name
We hide
Inside our Citadel
Safe, secure
Or so we think
But in one blink
As Jericho’s walls,
You realize they fell
So too may ours
With only one more yell

This Citadel, this church
Could be destroyed
Do we really want 
A world so devoid
Of a loving God
Should we not that
At all costs try to avoid?

We have to get out
To testify
Christ’s name 
To glorify
To save others 
From a yawning pit of hell
That Awaits
For Those if they refuse 
Who seal their own fate

So take heart,
Have courage
Refuse the demons
Biting at our heels
Rise up, church
Once more assert
The beauty of God’s will
As once again His kingdom
Of love on this planet 
To all who will testify
Grants from sin their freedom!

Brightest Light


Brightest light in 
The middle of my darkest night
Seated on a throne
Whose Spirit always roams
To seek & save the lost

Infinity's power fills
Your every hour
For joy making my heart sing
As angels voices ring
To secure your name

Embed that name
Deep, deep into your heart
For it does impart 
great power in all situations 
It is to be received, reported
Out To all the nations
For their sin's abating
For their re-creating

As all of heaven's mighty armies
Stand waiting for His signal
For His powerful return to earth
To remove forever that most evil stigma 
(satan’s darkness)
From all of His creation
Throughout all man's generations!!



To be shaken
Out of a reverie
So to forever be
God can do this
Whenever He
We just have to
Let Him use us

We, His family,
His church,
Have to be willing
To be stirred
To actually see, taste,
Experience Christ's cure
For our lost brokenness
He's forever capable of it
Just be reassured!

So let's take that fresh start
Give Him all of our hearts
So He can re-create, 
Once again Himself impart
To a church, His lost world 
That needs a'stirring!!

satan laughs

satan laughs

satan laughs 
In the face
Of a church asleep
As the world burns 
Around it
So Rise Up
Get on your feet
Jesus demands to
See it

Evil out of control
Openly strolls
In our homes
Our children's schools
So do not let it win
Today we must overrule
Its darkened evil
As we stand to defend
Our Lord's voice

So wake up dear church
Join the battle
For the most innocent lives
On this face of this earth
As Jesus returns to
Re-create, to completely re-birth
His perfected new kingdom!

All This Stuff – Why??

All this Stuff – Why?

do we do all this stuff?
Make all this stuff?
Houses, skyscrapers
Cars, planes, trains
Companies, Corporations
On & on our list goes
All done without once asking
If all our multi-tasking
Fits into any of God's plans

We stepped away
From You so madly
To run so many things
So badly
Now corruption seems
Commonplace so sadly

With all these wars,
Of deaths multiple scores
Each & every day
Men, women, children
Why do we not listen 
To ancient words 
So well-written
Of God's forever vision
For all of our lives
As down here
We spend the shortest of times

It all seems such a puzzle
If to His voice
We would just listen
And the heart's 
Best impulses not muzzle
Imagine a world 
Full of such wonders
No foot would ever stumble
Into a dark pain ever again
& His loving, wonderful presence
We would forever win!!
