Garbage

Garbage
floats in the air
spewed forth from
violent mouths
everywhere

Swirls around my
head
Attempts to invade
my dreams
as I lay on my bed!

Media mouths belch
forth refuse
it is a form of abuse
to grab our attention
to hold our senses
in detention
Done simply for a paycheck
their money!

Leaders stand
before your eyes
and outright lie
Be careful what you
allow into your mind
Do not let filth
or garbage
waste your precious time!

There is a holy truth
spoken by a Living
Righteous God
to us He is most willing
to give His true Life
So be most careful
at all times
What you feed into
your minds!

Shouts Of Joy To The Lord! — Pure Glory

by Hazel Straub All creation responds to the voice of the Lord. The trees clap their hands, the stars sing, and the mountains and hills have shouts of joy. Those redeemed by the blood of the Lamb, have even more reason for shouts of joy, in exaltation to the Lord, from a heart of obedience! […]

Shouts Of Joy To The Lord! — Pure Glory

When Was the Last Time?

When is the Last Time

On Sunday mornings
People walk thru doors
Take a seat 
Hoping I suppose
To be reached
Or hear someone teach

The Good News
What is that you say,
That Jesus loves you?
For that is the truth
To be sure
He is the absolute cure
For all the world’s 
Deepest problems

But when is the last time
You really looked at 
Your God
Only an hour or more
On a Sunday morning
In a building
Does not really accomplish
the chore
Of getting to know 
Your one & only God

Spend time with Him
In His intended Word
You will not be disappointed
Step outside at night
Away from city’s lights
Peruse the darkened skies
And see God’s glory

Billions, even trillions
Of uncountable stars
Scream out His Name
It’s been the same,
forever
All nature tells of his
Power
Within this & every hour
Of this planet’s existence

So take the time
To get to know Him
He is waiting, knocking even
To share all of His great
Power,
Beauty,
Glory
With Just You!

Culture, Culture

Culture, Culture

Culture, culture
Ringing in my ear
It’s sometimes on a day
All I can hear
Floating through the air
On radio waves
Forcing into my mind
Everything it intends to say

TV, movies, books even
Magazines
It intrudes its way in
Trying to please
The lower side of me
But by grace, I have been allowed to see
Vanity, vanity, all its vanity

So I shake my head
Loosen its hold
Coiled around my mind
Step out of the endless line
Of those being controlled 
Selling out their very souls
To a world in love
With only its Self

Instead loosen that self 
To fall in love with
Someone else
A greater God awaits
Holding out hands
To raise you up, to abate
All the noise of a lost,
Sad, desperate world

To rejoin you to himself
He paid in His own Blood!
So do not let the noisy flood
Of a lost culture
Destroy your Joy-filled Hope
Of an eternal paradise insured
Thru faith in our Christ’s cross!!



Loss

Loss


What is this sense of loss
Of a deep sadness,
Despair
Then I raise my head
To look at You
& You smile!
And my heart is even 
More beguiled
And enticed
To follow You

But I am stuck
On the other side of 
An uncrossable chasm
For I know on my own
I cannot 
Even begin to start
To conquer its deep gorges
A dark fog envelops 
My mind & heart

Then someone touches
Down with a hand
It is Your Son of Man
His blood paved the way
Because I was oh so lost
Until He reached across
So on this dark side
I need never stay
Alone, rejected digressing
From your eternal blessings

Christ is that bridge
That eternal ridge
Of hope & joy
For everyone to cross
Over into God’s love
You do not have to sit in
The darkness of eternal loss
But you must take that first step 
Reach for the outstretched hand
Of the undying Son of Man!
