A New Box We substitute Tendency to loot From Box to Box Compartmentalizing Our way Thru each & every Day A Box for home A Box for work A Box for fun Then the tiniest, tiniest box Finally for our spirit & God So in they go Into the larger Boxes What we believe to be Major spaces of our lives But the most important parts We then minimalize Why do we put God In a box so tiny After all He is large Runs a universe So very shiny With suns & moons Black holes Created endless numbers Of souls Let Him have all Your Boxes So give it a Shot Take God out Of that smallest Box Pour the contents Of all your Boxes Into God’s large one In that way They might all Become the same He & His Son Will be sure to run Each Box’s contents With only The very best of intents And extreme care For He only wants to share Himself, that Ultimate Paradise With you!
Suffer (Sacrifice) Suffering Of any kind Is not pleasant Or fun But it is the only way To run Toward Christ Arms held open To lovingly catch your Suffering For He knows Your greatest foe Knows the tactics satan will expose Every heartbeat uses In his war against heaven It is man, us he abuses To break God’s heart But Suffering will come As you try to follow God’s Only Son From a world Being led Being fed By satan’s lies So, you must come To expect the Suffering Christ Suffered in the extreme To pull us out of the Darkest of streams To be faithful, loyal to Him We must be willing to brave The suffering If unwilling we are To endure any pain For the Glory of His Name Then We do not truly love Him
Jesus or Disney World? Disney World That land of endless delights, Thrills and joy! Where nothing bad Or sad ever happens Your next adventure awaits Between its hallowed gates But wait Don’t look too closely You’ll see its flaws Don’t take time to stop or pause They’re only whirling machines Even though they May glisten & gleam It’s all a sham A tall tale, a false dream Wait for the real thing To which to cling Jesus wants to give you Something honest, rock solid, So Beautiful Mere words do not suffice To describe the heights Of His eternity's delights Perfection’s Love, Contentment, Joy, Peace, Glories that await Between His Majesty’s Golden Gates Always & forever at His Right Hand
Even the Demons People do go to church Walk thru a door Choose a seat Stay awhile Turn & smile Say they believe But rituals alone Do not change a heart May or may not help You grow Closer, more intimate, Obedient To your Creator So only saying you believe Will not save your soul Just to believe is only The first part of the goal Because even Demons believe & tremble They just chose the wrong side Do not follow their guide God is after the Human Heart So He may start To transform you Into His Son, A co-heir with Him So you may win, Transcend The darkness Enter His light, A forever Paradise!!
What IS Courage On a hill He created With His hands On a feckless day & by the very clay He had formed Stripped bare, He was crucified That WAS courage Left a golden throne Of glory To continue His story Of calling us back home Nevermore in Satan’s darkness To roam That TOOK courage On that crucial night In history For us, our destiny, Was changed forever Followers all They left their call Abandoned him To that hill Standing still Alone That was NOT courage But the story was Changed As He arose out of An empty grave They rejoiced on that day To follow His name Most of the 12 were martyred Terrible painful deaths Suffered so obedience They could claim That IS courage! Today there is no difference So in holy reverence For one so holy & pure Who came only to reassure Of God’s love, mercy Forgiveness Let us stand up His name bless Even if we have to suffer Perhaps even death That WILL BE our Courage!!
The Fortress My fortress is 'YOUR JOY ' Behind its stone thick walls I rejoice Raise hands & feet To dance From You, one loving glance Incites a mad frenzy of worship At your feet ancient angels Take delight In your power, beauty Glory The endless, eternal Story Unlimited, uncountable Blessings Flow forth for every man From your overfilled hands For those who choose & refuse To follow satan’s dark rebellion In a story of so many tellings he lost forever Paradise Lives now only in cruel anger & lies!
