Lord, Be My Compass

directory-1495843_960_720

Dear Lord, be my compass as I journey on
My trust is in You Lord, for You’re never wrong
With You in the picture, I know I’ll succeed
With Your hand to guide me, I know You will lead

In the way I should go and the path I should take
Please guide all my steps and each move that I make
Whichever direction You’d have me to go
Please help me to follow ~ help me to know

For You are my Captain and focus of faith
My Alpha and Omega ~ on You Lord I wait
To run on without You, I’m certain to fail
Like a ship on the sea, without a firm sail

Shine on my path ~ each day and each night
Surround me, O Saviour, with heavenly Light
I’m trusting You, Jesus, my joy and my song
O Lord, be my compass as I journey on

Mine Is The Love

There’s a love that’s so precious, so dependable and unfailing
and this poem is about that love … written like a love letter from heaven …

The cross - victory
~  Mine Is The Love  ~

Mine is the love that stands through time
A love that never fails.
Upon the cross, My love lived on
Although My hands were nailed
The pangs of death and hell could not
Prevent love’s burning fire
To see you whole again has been
My Father’s great desire

I rose again, for death could not
Obliterate this love
And now the way is open to
My Father’s throne above
Each day that passes by, I see
The longing of your heart
It’s My desire to comfort you
And My love to impart

You’re precious and I long to give you
Everlasting peace
And reassure you daily that
My mercies never cease.
Mine is the love that stands through time
O come to Me, dear soul
Receive My precious love, sublime
That never will grow old

Don’t Give Up

DON'T GIVE UP

There’s a promise in the Bible for you;
the answer to your heart’s cry,
Dear Friend – if you open its pages
and just read .. you’ll soon see why,
Despite the despair and the darkness,
there is hope for you today,
and it’s found in the Lord Jesus Christ
for all who will call on His Name!

A good place to begin to find out about the love of God
is by reading in the Bible the gospels, found in the New Testament.

(eg. start with St John)

St John 3: 16
For God so loved the world,
that He gave His only begotten Son,
that whoever believes in Him shall not perish
but have eternal life”
(NASB)

God bless you !

One for All

A poetic dramatization, based on the Biblical story of Jesus’ suffering and crucifixion.

Carrying the cross

“What’s going on? What’s going on?
Where are they going, this gathering throng?
Why are they shouting? Why are they mad?
Some look so happy. Many are sad”.

“Haven’t you heard? Where have you been?
They’ve taken Him, Jesus, the Nazarene”.

“I was away, but I’ve just returned,
I heard some talk that made my ears burn”.

“Quick move aside, they’re coming this way!
Oh, this is awful! A terrible day!
He only did good, was loving and kind.
There’s no-one like Him. He is divine!

Sick folk were healed, dead even raised.
I think the rulers envied His praise.
Multitudes loved to be blessed by His words,
So much more precious than any they’d heard.

He spoke of God’s kingdom and life from above.
He spoke of forgiveness, mercy and love;
That He is the Truth, the Life and the Way
To get to the Father, whenever we pray”.

“Merciful Father! Look at His head!
A crown of thorns, pierced ’til He bled!
Look at the sorrow and pain in His eyes
And still they are mocking with cruel cries”.

“Crucify Him!  Crucify Him!”
“Why? What wrong has He ever done?”
“Crucify Him!  Crucify Him!
Called Himself God’s only Son!”

“Leave Him alone!  He’s our Messiah!
He came to save us from hell’s fire!”

“Step aside woman, don’t get in the way!
If you’re so worried, start to pray!

“Oh no! They’re nailing His feet and hands!
The suffering and pain He bravely withstands.
No-one should ever have this to endure,
Especially someone so kind and so pure”
.
 . . . .

His body whipped, His flesh torn.
He bore the shame, mocked and scorned.
Upon the cross He felt alone;
Endured all of this, our sins to atone.

He suffered all for the entire world
And yet insults at Him are hurled.
He sacrificed Himself that day,
Gave His life and opened the way.

One man for all, Whose purity
Now meant that God could have mercy.
Jesus tasted of death and hell
But He ROSE AGAIN, ALIVE and WELL!

History cannot erase that day.
It happened, dear friend,
so that we could pray:

“Lord, I believe that YOU are the One
Who came to die, God’s only Son.
You took my place and died on a cross
to cleanse my soul from sinful dross.
I believe that You rose again.
Forgive me Lord of every sin.
Come, Lord Jesus, into my heart.
Help me to make a brand new start.
Wash me, cleanse and make me new.
From this day, I’ll follow You.
Thank You Lord that I’m forgiven
and ever will live with You in heaven”
Amen.

The cross - victory

Divine Wine !

Divine Wine

  ~ ~ ~

Absolutely NOTHING compares
with the satisfaction and fulfilment that comes from the Lord Jesus Christ.
Jesus fulfils the inner longing of human hearts.

All we need to do is:

 * Believe the gospel
* Call on His Name
* Turn away from our sins
* Let Him come in.


Speaking just of water,
in the Bible story of the woman at the well,
Jesus said

“Everyone who drinks this water will be thirsty again,
but whoever drinks the water I give them will never thirst.
Indeed, the water I give them will become in them
a spring of water welling up to eternal life.”
(John 4:13 NIV)

Rest In The Lord

Truly My Soul


God’s word is sure for us today,

amidst the storms of life.
He says within our hearts “Be still”
with words of hope and light.
We cannot see tomorrow –
or know what He has planned,
but we can know His peace within
when led by His dear hands.

In humbleness before Him, as
we seek to do His will,
His light upon our pathway keeps
on shining brighter still.
He bids us rest from worry –
He tells us not to fret.
All evil He will banish –
we’ll see His power yet.

His eyes are on the righteous and
He listens to their cry.
We only need to trust Him for
His word He can’t deny.
His word is full of healing –
He’ll take away your pain,
restoring all that you have lost;
you will come through again.

He’ll blow upon the waters and
will cause them soon to flee.
Just hold onto His promises;
keep waiting patiently.
This world is full of struggles –
each day may be a test,
but “Come to Me…” our Saviour says
“and I will give you rest”.
