Communication

Communication

Communication has a vital part.

It touches every person’s heart.

If one would only try to see

how critical it can be.

If one would think before they spoke–

If one would laugh or tell a joke–

If one would lend a listening ear

or speak words of comfort or cheer–

If one would go the extra mile

to dry a tear or crack a smile–

what a difference it could make

to help a burden dissipate. 

If one could touch a heart or soul

they might help to make it whole.

If one would offer a helping hand–

If one would help a crippled one stand–

then others might begin to see

How vital communication can be.

If one would give a hat or glove

to meet a need with a gift of love–

then one might understand, at least in part,

communication’s impact on the human heart.

Who Could He Be?

There was a little baby–born a long time ago.

He had a special mission that His friends could never know.

His mother was a virgin; His Father dwells above.

This baby boy’s heart overflowed with compassion and love.

He taught in the temple when He was only twelve.

He focused on others instead of Himself.

He fed 5,000 people from two fish and some bread.

He turned water into wine the day a couple wed.

He demonstrated power–beyond humanities.

Who was this mysterious fellow? Who could He be?

He spoke words given to Him from above.

He came to be our example of love.

He healed many people; some blind who couldn’t see.

He taught them lessons about living righteously.

He came to His disciples who were in a boat on the sea

when a raging storm threatened their future destiny.

He calmed the raging storm; He walked upon the sea.

He looked them in eyes and asked, “Won’t you trust in me?”

He traveled many miles with one thought in His mind–

doing only His Father’s will–saving mankind.

He displayed God’s power and people watched to see.

“Who is this mysterious fellow?” they asked. “Who could He be?”

Soon their answer came–in a way they didn’t want to see–

When God’s Son, Jesus, died upon that tree.

Jesus fulfilled His special mission; He did the Father’s will.

He conquered sin and death, when He died up on that hill.

Jesus rose from the grave, on day number three–

He paid our penalty for sin–for you and for me. 

Oh, that little baby–born so long ago–

prepares a place in heaven, for you and me to go.

If we would only ask Him for forgiveness

and invite Him into our heart–

He would give us eternal life and love;

From us, He will never depart.

He lives in our heart and shows us the way.

When we reach heaven, “twill be a glorious day!”

God’s Infinite Love

God’s Infinite Love

I recently heard of a wonderful thing–

God’s love for man, His created being.

God sacrificed His only Son

so the soul’s of men might be won.

When we’re born again and follow God’s rules,

He gives us treasure worth more than jewels.

He gives salvation to those who follow–

and keeps their lives from being hollow.

With salvation, when you believe–

God’s precious gifts, you will receive.

God gives us guidance from above

and fills our lives with His great love.

God gives us everything we need,

He’ll guide us if, His word we’ll heed.

God forgives all of our sin

if we repent and invite Him in.

So do not worry and do not grieve–

in His hands, your burdens leave.

Pray for guidance from above;

then know God’s answer comes in love.

He’ll always do what’s best for us–

if in God, we’ll put our trust.

For God’s love was proven by His grace

when Jesus died on the cross, taking our place.

So why not do it today–

learn about Jesus; live life His way.

Then, best of all, you’ll have a friend

who will walk with you to your journey’s end.

So why not give Jesus a chance?

Why not ask Him to take your hand?

Why not belong to the Father above?

Why not experience God’s infinite love?

We Wait With Hope For Jesus

We wait with hope for Jesus.

He’s our heavenly King.

He travels each day within us,

and provides for all our needs.

We wait with hope for Jesus

and to see our heavenly home–

where tears and pain will fade away

and we’ll never be left alone.

We wait with hope for Jesus.

He’s coming some day soon

to take away the wickedness

and make us all brand new.

We wait with hope for Jesus

for He’s our faithful brother.

He gives us strength for each new day

and helps us love each other.

We wait with hope for Jesus.

He sent the Holy Spirit.

He leads the way through troubled days

and helps us not to fear it.

We wait with hope for Jesus.

He’s our great Shepherd.

He leads the flock, finds the lost,

and keeps us all together.

We wait with hope for Jesus.

He has great healing power.

He binds our wounds, heals our hearts,

and restores our lives forever.

We wait with hope for Jesus.

He’s our blessed King.

He paid the price to buy our life,

and gave us everything.

We wait with hope for Jesus.

For no where can we find–

the kind of love and tenderness

He gives to human kind.

We wait with hope for Jesus

who–in splendor–rides.

He comes with might and majesty

to rescue us–His bride.

Encouragement for Persecution

August 28, 2015

Today I read a horrifying report from Jay Seculow at the ACLJ on the terrible acts being committed against Christians in Syria, Iran, and other countries in that area. We Christians need to get down and pray for the Christians being persecuted all over the world. Though, as individuals, we are not able to stand against this ISIS and other terrorists, we know that our God can defeat them. In 2 Chronicles 20, the Bible tells about King Jehoshaphat and the people of Judea. They found out that multitudes of armies of their enemies were coming to war against them. The King gathered his people in the temple to pray and seek God concerning the battle. They received instruction from God and obeyed, and God wiped out their enemies. We need to follow their example and pray for those who are under siege from their enemies. These are our brothers and sisters in Christ, and they need all the support we can give them. So please take time out to pray for them!

God Is Faithful!

A couple of weeks ago, on a Friday evening, my husband had bad pain in his chest. We were concerned that it could be a heart problem so we went to our local Fire Department to see if they could check and see if it was serious. We didn’t want to have to pay for an emergency visit if it wasn’t necessary.

Our local EMT’s put Steve on the monitor and noticed something going on. They recommended he go to emergency. In fact, they followed us over to the hospital. The emergency team took him in right away and ran several tests on him. In fact one test didn’t turn out good so they had to redo it. Finally, after six hours in emergency the doctor brought the diagnoses.

Steve had Pluracy–an infection in his check area that was causing inflammation and swelling. It put pressure on the heart, causing the odd reading the Fire Department’s heart monitor.  The doctor prescribed some aspirin along with Steve’s regular anti-inflammatory medicines, and within a week or so he was feeling better.

I want to thank God that it wasn’t a heart attack or stroke and that Steve is doing better.  It was a tense moment, but our God was faithful and we received a great report.
