HE IS RISEN

 

Holy celebration on springtime morn:

Everlasting is Jesus, Our Savior and Lord!

In heaven now where he forever reigns:

Salvation he has brought; praise be his glorious name!!

Resurrected from the grip of death;

In hope he lives, ever victorious.

Son rises and shines on us early Easter morning:

Eternal life he is gladly giving.

Now and for all eternity,

He lives inside the hearts of all who believe.

Happy Easter

A Christmas Poem

IMG_20151226_125850093

Kiss and taste this Christmas season;

Enjoy quiet moments with God’s Son.

Remember and keep in your heart

How God promised his Son from afar

To descend from the glory of heaven

And dwell with sinful and erring man.

He arrived as a babe born in a stable

Where a manger of hay was his cradle.

He lived on earth to teach us about heaven

Where all who believe will live with him.

Baptized and touched by a descending dove,

He came to share with us God’s never ending love.

Though he died on a cross he also rose again

And has returned to the realms of heaven.

But as the Holy Spirit, he descends

To live in the hearts of believing men.

For all who choose to joyously believe

And this eternal gift of God has gladly received,

May your heart be filled to the brim

Of everlasting Christmas blessings from Him.

MERRY CHRISTMAS

 

Becky’s Freku: Though the Path be Dark Today

img_20160420_100257563

In the cloud-filled, dreariness of this day,

While the sunlight be dim along the way,

With Jesus I can still walk in faith

Though the path be dark today.

Although troubles brew and haunt my soul

And I feel empty and lacking a life purpose or goal,

With Jesus I can still walk by faith

Though the path be dark today.

As the rain drizzles outside

And in my house I just want to hide,

With Jesus I can still walk by faith

Though the path be dark today.

Even as I awake in clouds of doubt

Wondering what my life is really about,

With Jesus I can still walk by faith

Though the path be dark today.

As I gingerly step outside in fear

Wondering what new obstacles may appear,

With Jesus I can still walk by faith

Though the path be dark today.

Believing the sun will shine again

Evaporating the clouds and drizzling rain,

With Jesus I can still walk by faith

Though the path be dark today.

Choosing to trust that he is my light

Who helps me to see in the darkest night,

With Jesus I can still walk by faith

Though the path be dark today.

Yeah! With Jesus, I

still walk by faith though my path

is darkened today.

Remember Jesus is always near

004

Cling to your faith and let go of your fear;

Remember Jesus is always near.

He is never too far or out of reach;

Only trust and earnestly seek.

Though troubles rise up like ocean waves

Which threaten to overwhelm and overtake

Our trembling spirits and our souls

In peals of crashing thunder rolls.

Time to stop gazing at the swirling sea

And also ignore the wind-swept swaying trees.

Instead in faith lift your tear-filled eyes

To the heavenly realms above the clouded sky.

Where the Lord stands watching over you

And sees all that you are going through.

He’s leaning over with an outstretched had

To pull you out of the gripping quicksand.

He is just a prayer, a phone call, away

Waiting to swiftly come to your aid.

Must call on him and truly believe

He can calm any turbulent sea.

And bring you to a safe and peaceful place

Where you can rest and be restored in faith.

So, cling to your faith and let go of your fear;

Remember Jesus is always near.

Becky’s Haiku: Fray, Veil, and Secret

252

More frayed by trials

 of life, then I veil growing

fear deep down inside.

Oh yes hidden fears

And insecurities; such

Secrets I do keep.

Like shadows in the

darkness, anxiety hides

beneath the surface.

Need to release that

Worry; let go of that fear

While to God, draw near.

Need to have faith and

Believe that He stays near to

Help and comfort me.

Remember his ways

And his love while looking to

Heaven far above.

Take his hand and let

Him lead through this new day and

His blessings receive.

When the day is done

And time to rest remember he

Stays near and knows best.

Say a prayer filled with

Sincere gratitude while he

Keeps watch over you.

I have just attempted yet another haiku challenge from Ronovan Writes blog using the words “fray” and “veil”. I am enjoying the challenge of putting different and even opposite words in such a short poem.  If you like challenges and haiku’s then I invite you to also accept his latest challenge at this link: https://ronovanwrites.wordpress.com/category/haiku-prompt-challenge/

I am also participating in a photo challenge this week with the word “secret”. To find out more about word photo challenges visit this site: https://thearanartisan.com/photo-challenge-words-2016/

 

Becky’s Song: Come, God Told Me

 

039

(Tune: Little Drummer Boy):

 

“Come,” God told me, “come see my Son

Come to Jesus the King, come see my Son”

“But I am unworthy,” I cried to him,

“Not wanted and unloved so

Why should I come?

Why should I come?

Why should I come?”

“Because I know you child and so does my Son;

And you are loved by him.”

 

“Oh, King Jesus, God told me to come

But I am not worthy to stand before your throne

I’m utterly sinful and so unwanted,

Wretched, unlovable so

Why should I come?

Why should I come?

Why should I come?”

“Because I have forgiven you, oh don’t you see?

I will make you be holy through me.”

 

Then God nodded as he was pleased

To see me come fully believing in Thee.

Jesus came then to live in my heart.

Jesus promised to stay and

Never ever depart

Never ever depart

Never ever depart.

For God so love this world, oh can you see?

He sent Jesus to save you and me.

 

John 3:16-17 (Holy Bible New International Version):

“For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life. For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world but to save the world through him.”
