The Word

THE WORD

The power of Your Word created the world
I opened the Book, the truth finally heard
A love letter to me, we call it the Bible
With instructions so clear, it is my survival

The Bible revealed God, Jesus in action
I felt His love, I felt His passion
Reading His Word I found the truth
My life has changed, how much more proof

So many years not knowing the Word
I am a true witness of what it can do
I had been told but I had not heard
His sacrifice, His love, my life was renewed

The power of Your Word keeps the World in order
God left us that Word, God left us that power
Your Word says to go and preach in the world
How I lead my life speaks louder than words

Your Word became flesh
You became my Savior

COMMENT

The Bible is God’s Word to us. It is like
reading a love letter to us from the creator
of the universe.

I didn’t understand this right away but I
kept on reading. I kept on seeking to know
more. Once the truth penetrates you can
never let it go.

The Bible is the most important book on
earth. The most important book ever written.

It has been proven to be accurate. Many
have tried to disprove it and failed.
Discoveries keep coming up verifying and
supporting it.

It changed my life. It introduced me to
history’s most important figure, Jesus.

Read this book and your life will change.

Romans 10:17
“So faith comes from hearing, and
hearing through the word of Christ”

Pride

PRIDE

Pride–an abomination to the Lord
I wish I wasn’t guilty
But I’ve been there before
Feeling so unworthy
My peace being destroyed

I repented and confessed
I have offended You
Those sins that You detest
You know they hurt me too

With pride comes disgrace
Humility brings God’s grace
I will not my God forsake
For someone’s earthly praise

The Word is full of warnings
Too serious to ignore
Lord, help me wake each morning
Today, pride I’ll abhor

I know the days I honor You
I feel that inner peace
Why would I let pride destroy
What You have given me

I need to pray that I don’t fall
An easy thing to do
The devil won’t come near me
If I’m glorifying You.

Pride can sneak up on you even when you are
doing a good deed. I always ask myself, am I
proud because I am so good at it or because it
benefits another.

Pride can keep us from admitting sin. It is like
a self made man in love with himself as his
creator.

Being proud of a job well done is different than
the pride that keeps us away from God.

Boasting about myself? Not giving God the
glory? How foolish. What do I have that I have
not received?

My goal in life is to do God’s work.
Anything else is work in vain.

To be humble brings His grace.

Psalm 10:4
The wicked, through the pride of his
countenance, will not seek after God: God is not
in any of his thoughts.

The Way

THE WAY

Somebody said “Just seek and find”
It seemed like such a waste of time
I just really didn’t care
If there was anything out there

What I found and didn’t know
God wouldn’t easily let me go
He pursued me with His love
How to resist, where else to go?

Only He knew what it would take
How could I know what was at stake?
The love He showed me was the key
I opened the door so cautiously

Why would He want to talk to me
I’d treated Him so horribly
I humbly asked Him to come in
Would He forgive me all my sins?

He’d knocked and waited patiently
This God who had created me
Then so amazingly
I felt His love envelop me

My love just grew by leaps and bounds
As He rejoiced with me

I had been found!

COMMENTS

I was a skeptic for such a long time. I was in
my thirties when I first opened a Bible. I
completed eight years of schooling that
focused on God morning, noon and night. I
left not knowing what God was all about.
Throughout those eight years, not once did I
see a Bible.

When I left, the last thing I wanted was to
hear about God ever again.

Many years later while I was living in the
jungles of Belize, a lady left me a box full of
tapes in front of my door with a Bible. I was
not interested. It sat unopened for at least
3 months.

Finally, one day I did open the box and looked
in the Bible. It didn’t matter that the Bible was
given out by a cult. The truth of what I read in
the Bible penetrated my soul.

God will go through any lengths to show you
that He loves you, to show you that He wants
you.

I have no doubt that if I had not decided to
read His Word, He would have found
another way to introduce Himself. God never
gives up on us.

He will knock until the very end. He is so
ready to forgive, to make you His child.

Revelation 3:20
“Behold, I stand at the door and knock.
If anyone hears my voice and opens the
door, I will come into him and eat with
him, and he with me.”

How Did it Happen

HOW DID IT HAPPEN

Blessings so many and so great
Where do I start, how to relate

When I awake the sun is there
How did it happen? Do I care?
Do I ever stop to think
If one day it was out of sync?

Seasons follow each other in order
Tides ebb and flow, the sun rises and sets
I look at the world and I have to say
How did it happen, this great display

Then there is life, how did it happen
Man has never a life created
I know that there had to be a beginning
Without a God? I would debate it

The fact of the world drives me to God
The order, the detail
I stay in awe

Thank you Lord, I am so humbled
You’ve shown me so much and I still stumble
But the victory I have, no one can take

I have faith

Why Did I Believe

WHY DID I BELIEVE

One verse for me was all it took
Why did I wait so long to look

The answer is not hard to find
My problem was I did not seek
Without Him I had made it fine
But one day I did take a peek

And there it was in Psalm 19
“The heavens declare the glory of God;
The skies proclaim the work of His hands”

Was that verse always there for me?
Today I feel God made it mine

In this world what do we mostly see?
The Universe, Stars, Galaxies
An order that could never be
It was right there but I didn’t see

Reading more deeply in God’s Word
I found the truth, I had not heard
A love so great, He gave His life
He thought that I was worth the price

His resurrection was proof for me.

Who Is This Man

WHO IS THIS MAN

Who is this man who changed history
Even the times are known as BC-AD
He left His mighty power to become like us
From being God to human–that is love

He came with a plan, to save humanity
We had no hope, dominated by sin
Fire, Wailing and gnashing of teeth
That is what our future would have been

Jesus is the man who changed history

Just as all mankind was a part of Adam’s sin
Jesus’ sinless death saved humanity
His death and resurrection reversed everything
He became like us, so we might become like Him

Now we have to choose between death or life
The Kingdom of darkness or the Kingdom of light

He came to earth as an innocent lamb
How can I show Him how grateful I am
His love for us I will never understand
I know before He came He had it all planned

Jesus, the man, who changed history
His one selfless act gave us eternity
