All Paid For

To see the Jesus reign and rule in the hearts of men all over the world.

Father and Son
Dwelling
In perfect harmony
Until that evening
When the Son
Bore on Him
The sins of whole world
On a hill faraway
His loving Father
Cringed
And turned away
From His beloved Son

Even today
Our loving Father
Cringes away,
When we
Indulge in sin
Hear him call,
“Come to Me child,
My Beloved Son
Has paid the price
For your sins”

Daily Prompt: Cringe

Light Has Come!

image

Deep in the tunnels of rage
Bound in the chains of hate
Darkness surrounding like a gate
Hear the voice of the Holy One-
Light has come!

Drowning in the oceans of sin
Buried in its seabed within
Lust enslaving like a gin
Hear the voice of the Holy One-
Light has come!

Crouching in the corners of guilt
Ashamed with the depth of your filth
Hiding in the covers of your quilt
Hear the voice of the Holy One-
Light has come!

Wallowing in wounds of the past
Vowing to avenge with a blast
Pining with emotions of downcast
Hear the voice of the Holy One-
Light has come!

May the Light of the gospel shine into our hearts and draw us nearer to the Lord, Amen.

Be Thou my Vision

“Be Thou my vision, O Lord of my heart;
Naught be all else to me, save that Thou art;
Thou my best thought, by day or by night;
Waking or sleeping, Thy presence my light”

This song is a prayer, a desire for God to be our vision. For God to be all we see. For when we lose sight of God, we see the glitters of sin beckoning our lust-filled hearts, we see the ostentatious gifts of life seducing our minds, we become consumed with all our own plans and desires, we become selfish and self-centred. We may become bitter, unforgiving, proud, stubborn and sometimes foul-mouthed.

Problems become enlarged and solutions miles away. We may become hopeless, in despair and depressed, tearful and sad, blaming everybody and anybody. We may feel like the weight of the world is on our shoulders and we focus only on the things that are wrong in our lifes. Some even attempt or do commit suicide.

But when we make God our vision, when we look unto Him who is the Author and Finisher of our faith, earth’s glooms and glitters grow dim. We see who He is and who He made us to be. When we make Him our Vision, He fills us with the desire to be more like Him, we become more loving, more hopeful, content, joyful, peaceful, spirit-filled, and all that God is. His character begins to rub off on us, we discover that we are increasing in His image from day to day.

Our problems may not go away but we discover an inner strength to keep fighting, keep hoping and to keep believing that because He lives we can face of tomorrow. We find a reason to love, to live and to be a blessing to others. Even when reasons are inexplicable, we find that love, joy and peace flows regardless.

May the good Lord be our daily vision indeed, Amen.

“Lord, help us not to lose sight of You, in our waking thoughts or when asleep; and may we become more like You as we behold Your lovely face day by day, Amen.”

Heaven’s Beautiful Shore

Unfriendly tempests around us assail
As we sail to that Beautiful Shore
With God’s Word to lead us forth
Against each tide we will prevail

How we trust our Father’s hand
To lead His children safely home
Fear not Pilgrim, do journey on
Soon on Heaven’s Shore we shall stand

Sweet Holy Spirit give us strength
Sin does beckon with every tide
Draw us near towards Your side
Dark lusty waves are not our friend

Let heaven’s wind bear us on
May our heartfelt prayers prove our course
Each heart rejoicing with praise to God
When we stand on Heaven’s Beautiful Shore

In response to our daily post word: BeachJourney
