Stay On The Narrow Road

road-1246601_960_720

There are two roads: one is narrow, one is broad,
We read of this truth in the infallible Word of God.
Walk carefully with Jesus Christ, and do not stray,
Stay on the narrow road, love Him all of your days.

The broad road will destroy you, taking you to hell,
It promises pleasure and joy, and popularity as well.
This road can make life easy, everyone may like you,
Some who are on this road even sit weekly in a pew.

Stay on the narrow road, leading to our everlasting rest,
Clinging to Jesus, not veering to the right or to the left.
The enemy roars loudly, trying to pull you into his path,
A path that leads to destruction, and God’s eternal wrath.

But the path of Jesus is the path of joy and everlasting life,
He forgives and reconciles you to God; there is no more strife.
He does this for all who believe in His Name, The great I AM,
the High and Holy One,
Who atoned for our sins, while hanging on that cross; Amen!
Finished! Yes, it is done!

We Hated Him, He Loved Us

 

john-3-16-3700544_960_720

 

Before we were born again, we did not love but only hated God,
Refusing to repent, we pursued our lust and were God’s enemy,
Having no hope, drinking in sin like water and wickedly flawed,
We needed rescued from our sin, yes indeed; we needed a remedy.

How can this be? How can God show such love to the wicked?
How can we make sense of such love? How can we understand?
Even though it is impossible to grasp, we ought to feel convicted,
That God has so loved us; He sent Christ, who sits at His right hand.

We should be in awe of His mercy, amazed at His infinite grace,
As we are longer slaves to selfishness and sin, we now love Him,
All because He first loved us, now our sin is gone without a trace,
So keep your eyes on Jesus; one day you will see His glorious face!

Mortify the Fear of Man!

FEAR

 

The fear of man lays a snare, the Holy Scripture makes this clear,
It tears us apart on the inside, when our sinful emotions domineer.
We look within to try to control the mayhem, but this never works,
We must fear only the Christ, to expel the sinful dread that lurks.

Scripture tells us to fear the One who can cast our body and soul into hell,
To fear Jesus Christ, who can save and destroy; look to Him and you do well.
But to fear man is wicked and debased, for in doing so we betray our King,
Who has pledged to shelter and protect us; we take refuge under His wings.

Do not fear man who perishes, man who is mortal, man who is from the dust,
Store up treasure in heaven, where Christ is; all else will be destroyed by rust.
You must fear Jesus Christ and make Him your supreme treasure, the One who died and rose again for us,
And regarding that devilish old snare, the fear of man? Don’t even entertain it. Don’t make such a fuss!

Mortify the fear of man! Mortify it today! Look to Jesus and think of His sovereign power,
Oh dear Christian! He says to “fear not!”; Don’t you know?! Man fades away like a flower.
So trust God when He says to “fear not!”, and remember His amazing, infinite love for you;
And expel that old snare, by keeping your eyes on Him, the One who is both Faithful and True.

That Bitter Cup Jesus Drank

NEW WINE

 

Jesus drank that bitter cup, the cup of the Father’s wrath,
He drank it for sinners like us, for it was His chosen path.
Every last drop of Heaven’s fury absorbed, He took it head on,
To glorify God, to forgive and restore us, our sin now is gone.

Jesus drank every last drop, He was spared nothing at all,
Suffering for every believer, corrupted by Adam’s great fall.
God’s infinite anger toward His enemies, laid on the Christ,
Jesus cried out “My God! My God!”, He paid the ultimate price.

Jesus drank that dreaded cup, the cup that you and I deserve,
He did it for love of the ungodly, the rebels He came to serve,
He brought us escape from death, saving us from the lake of fire,
By giving us Himself, the One whom everyone ought to desire.

Jesus drank it all, the cup that made Him pray, “Father, let this be taken!”
But He came to do God’s will; this foreknown plan would never be shaken.
He cried “Why have you forsaken Me?”, while on the cross bearing our sin,
He stood in our place, bled and died our punishment; then He rose again!

Dear Mommies, Love Your Down Syndrome Neighbor

pregnant-woman-1910302_960_720

 

Dear Mommies,

The little one whom God has knit together inside you, please do not destroy,
He has given you a most precious gift, the gift of a beautiful baby girl or boy.
God is weaving your baby together, and that He does with perfect precision,
Don’t murder your unborn baby; don’t make that hasty, irreversible decision.

Strive to “love your neighbor as yourself”; these are the very words of Jesus,
Our actions do not escape His watching eye, in everything we do He sees us.
He has given you your closest neighbor; within you He has provided them a home,
Don’t throw God’s gift away, simply because they have an extra chromosome.

But wait, isn’t this the baby’s own extra chromosome, part of their own DNA?
But yet you still proclaim, “This is my body!” My oh my, what logic you betray!
Don’t hate your baby by having them murdered, for to God you will one day have to answer,
Love and cherish your closest neighbor; abortion is evil and kills more people than cancer.

Now go and do the right thing; obey God’s command to love your neighbor as yourself,
Eat right, don’t smoke or drink, plan a baby shower, and file some diapers on the shelf.
A precious human life is growing inside your tummy, so stop listening to the evil voices of this world,
Jesus says you have a baby with an extra chromosome; a person, knit together by Him, a boy or a girl.

What Jesus Has Done

passion-2168797_960_720

 

 

 

 

 

What Jesus has done……….

He’s done for sinners like you and me,
He came to give us life, and set us free.
He’s given His Spirit and called us forth,
People from east, west, south, and north.

What Jesus has done……….

He’s done once and for all, bearing all our sin,
Clothed in human flesh, and born of a virgin.
He took God’s wrath for us, hanging on a tree,
His Spirit changes hearts, giving us eyes to see.

What Jesus has done…………

He’s done in love, coming to us in mercy and grace,
Truly God, truly man; without sin, not even a trace.
He went to the cross, His innocent blood being shed,
He didn’t deserve any of it; it should’ve been us instead.

What If You Could See Your Baby Again?

chance

 

What if…………………..

You could see your baby again? What if they looked you directly in the eye?
What a moment this would be! But what if they asked, “Why did I have to die?”

What if……………………

You had the chance to ask them anything at all? What would your question be?
What would you ask? Would you say, “Have you been thinking much about me?”

What if…………………….

You saw their precious face and thought, “Wow, you look just like my own twin!”
What if you saw your likeness in their eyes, before they were taken away again?

What if………………………

The time to visit with your baby was running out, and you had to act fast?
With the thought that you’d be separated again, leaving you totally aghast.

What if……………………….

You had the chance to ask them about heaven, and how much they enjoy Jesus?
Imagine the feeling that would stir our hearts, what amazing joy would seize us!

What if………………………..

You knew your baby was perfectly well, being cared for by the Lord of glory?
And that you need not worry if they don’t visit, to tell you their heavenly story.

What if…………………………

You knew your baby would never visit you now, because they are in God’s hands?
And that the questions you now have, you can leave with the Almighty’s perfect plans.

What if………………………….

You baby has no more questions, but have everything they could ever want or need?
They are with Jesus, and they don’t ask why. Never doubt the plans God has decreed.

My Sister, My Example, My Hero

photoYou are my hero Stephanie, I could not be as strong as you,
Never giving up hope, you are a fighter through and through.

No cancer could keep you down, the doctors are truly amazed,
There is nothing else to say but this: Let God’s Name be praised!

You are my hero Stephanie, you are beautiful inside and out,
Always smiling, always kind, showing us what love is all about.

God is watching over you, and His presence brings you peace,
So when you are lonely or anxious, to Him all your cares release.

You are my hero Stephanie, your testimony is now seen before all,
You have suffered many things, but it is your joy the nurses recall.

I thought I might lose you, not knowing the details of God’s story,
But He has been so merciful, bringing healing to display His glory.

You are my hero Stephanie, don’t forget God is with you in your trials,
His love is endless and never changes, it stretches for miles and miles.

I know some nights are worse than others, and each day has its own struggle,
But the Lord is in your midst, to deliver you from fear and enemy trouble.

You are my hero Stephanie, God’s promises will strengthen you in despair,
God did not spare His own Son for you, He will provide for your every care.

We have seen you come so far, so please continue to fight, and never be afraid,
He knows your need, He is your great High Priest; on Him your sin was laid.

You are my hero Stephanie, even in your pain your face lights up the room,
As a shining example to all, that each moment is a gift, even from womb to tomb.

You have taught me so many things, like the value of life, family, and friends,
Jesus is shining through you, so that all can see how much His love transcends.

What Kind of Amazing Love is This?

cross-2713356__340

 

What kind of love is this? The love of Jesus, who died and rose again,
To take away all of our guilt, absorbing the wrath of Almighty God,
Once and for all He did this, to remove all of our shame and sin,
The Son of God was falsely accused, condemned by an angry mob.

What kind of love is this? That God would clothe Himself in flesh,
Humbling Himself to the point of death; nailed to a splintered cross,
He gives us what we don’t deserve; everyday His mercies are afresh,
And He daily makes us more like Himself, removing all of our dross.

What kind of love is this? That we would receive every spiritual blessing,
Justified, sanctified, and one day glorified; All ours! Every one of these!
Let’s meditate on all that He has given us, in fact we should be obsessing,
That God has redeemed us; because we are in Christ, the Father is pleased.

What kind of love is this? That our God would give us His Holy Scripture,
Along with the Spirit of truth, to dwell within us, guiding us in all our ways,
A perfect love that shows us Jesus Christ, painting such a beautiful picture,
Revealing to us our blessed Redeemer, the One who is worthy of infinite praise.

What kind of love is this? That our God would be preparing a place for us,
Giving us hope that one day we will be with Him, and His Word is certain,
A New Heaven and New Earth, with many beautiful dwellings to discuss,
And all because of His amazing love, displayed on the day He tore the curtain.

What kind of love is this? A love that is perfect, a love that will never die,
A self-giving, sacrificial love that gives and gives, a love that is forevermore,
An everlasting love that never leaves you, a love that never says goodbye,
This is the love of Jesus, the Only Begotten Son; what more could you ask for?!

If You Keep Me Daddy, I’ll Be Your Princess

   little girl

                       Dear Daddy,

Will you please be my hero? Will you help mommy? Will you help her take care of me?
Don’t be like those other daddies, cowards who run from their children, who get scared and flee.
And don’t be like daddies who hate their unborn babies, and encourage mommies to kill.
Will you be my hero and keep me? Will you let me live? Will you let me have that thrill?

Will you be there for me? After I am born, will you hold me? Will you change my diaper?
When I’m older, will you still be there for me? Will you calm me down when I am hyper?
Will you watch over me when boys try to date me? Will you question them really hard?
Daddy, your face looks really sad. Is that a tear in your eye? Am I catching you off guard?

Why are you taking me to the scary place? The place where they will take me from mommy?
How can you do this? You remember that ultrasound? Don’t act like you never saw me!
Daddy, all I ever wanted was to be born just like you were. Don’t I have the right?
But you’re taking me to the bad people. They’re coming to get me. Won’t you even put up a fight?

Will you be there to save me from the bad people? Will you do everything you should?
Keep them away daddy! Do you see them trying to hurt me? People from Planned Parenthood.
Daddy, I want you to know I love you. I want to be with you and mommy! Will you please change your mind?
And don’t worry daddy. I won’t even know that you wanted to abort me, that you wanted to leave me behind.

And even if I did find out, I would still forgive you and mommy; I know you both just got scared,
And if you keep me, I will be the best daughter ever! Please give me a chance. Will my life be spared?
Daddy, there isn’t much time. Will you please hurry? Did you know mommy is on her way to the abortuary?
The place they are going to murder me, tearing me to pieces. Oh daddy, I told you this place was so scary!

Please hurry! Will you come and get me? Remember, I am your baby girl! Won’t you be my hero?
I am God’s gift to you and mommy. Don’t extinguish my time. If you don’t hurry, my days will be zero.
Don’t you fear the Lord Jesus Christ? The One who created you and me. I am His precious child,
I want you to keep me. But I also want you to be forgiven by Jesus. Repent and be reconciled.

Be my hero now daddy. Go get mommy and tell her to stop, please, before it’s too late.
You know those really bad people of Planned Parenthood? They have so much hate!
Don’t let them hurt me! Stop listening to those voices of the world, your flesh, and the devil,
Because those bad people, they listen to those voices all the time; their evil is on another level.

Daddy, hurry, be my hero! I always wanted to be a princess. I wanted to learn to ride a bike. I want to get married,
What are you going to tell everyone if you let them murder me? Are you going to tell them mommy miscarried?
Oh daddy, I want you to always be there for me and mommy. I want you to read me Bible stories. Isn’t my life worthwhile?
Won’t you let me be born? Won’t you let me be your Princess? Daddy, one day, are you going to walk me down the aisle?

With love,

your little princess
