The Need For Quiet Days

Lord, there has been a loss for me
In all the recent days,
I haven’t made the time to be
With You in all my ways.
Oh yes, I talk to You and share
The trials that I face,
And always thank You for Your help
With problems You erase.

But deep within my heart I yearn
For quiet days with You,
When I have time to seek Your face
Your will to know and do.
My every need You will supply
When I am one with You,
Upheld by Your amazing grace
Your love forever true!

Some have wandered far away
From Jesus Christ their Lord
Once they lived by faith in Him
Abiding by God’s word.
It can be a gradual thing
We may not see the harm
Till we’re caught up in the world
And can’t tell right from wrong.

Satan watches Jesus’ sheep
To see if one will stray
Looking for the vulnerable
That he can make his prey.
Jesus knows our every move
And lessons we must learn
Even though we wander off
He calls us back again…

Even though we wander off
He calls us back again.

“If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins
and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.”

O come to Christ
Make a new start
And seek for Him
With all your heart.
For Jesus came
To set men free
And gave His life
For you and me!

O come to Christ
He’ll make things new
He gives us peace
We never knew.
Always forgives
Though sin abounds
And plants our feet
On higher ground!

O come to Christ
Make a new start
The love of God
Will fill your heart.
Before your birth
Your name He knew
And He’d have died
If just for you!

Strong In The Lord

Strong In The Lord

Strong in the Lord and in His power
How wonderful that sounds,
We must remember every day
His grace in us abounds!
This world can be a scary place
God’s people aren’t exempt
From facing many challenges
But in Him we are kept.

There is no place beyond His reach
No problem we can’t share,
His love for us is so complete
He’s with us everywhere!
In Him alone, we must abide
With faith that will not fail,
Our weakness makes us strong in Him
Christ’s power will prevail!

“Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord and in the power of His might.”
[Ephesians 6:10]

Why Was Christ Crucified?

Why Was Christ Crucified?
© 2017 Tom D Blakely
~

What do we look for in this life?
We strive for more and more.
So many things that we must have
Let’s stop, and think what for?
For when our casket’s lowered down
Six feet below the earth.
What is there left of all we had?
Our dates of birth and death?

There is no dignity in death
For either rich or poor,
Or do you think you are so good
It makes your death worth more?
A bigger funeral perhaps?
Important people there?
As if that changes anything
You’re gone, why would you care?

But what about your living soul
Still very much awake?
For if you die still in your sin
Then hell will be your fate…
So many hear that God is love
Forgetting Jesus died.
But will they ever understand
Why Christ was crucified?

“For the wages of sin is death;
but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.”
[Romans 6:23]
