The Conquering Prince

Oh, the depth of the riches of the wisdom and knowledge of God!

How unsearchable his judgments,

and his paths beyond tracing out!

Romans 11:33

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

The Conquering Prince

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

The ancient Mystery

eternal – without start or end

Incomprehensible

a Triune of Love

our God – our Savior – our Friend

~

The only Creator

who simply spoke to form the starry host

Unfathomable

a holy Trinity

the Father – the Son – the Holy Ghost

~

The only Redeemer

whose shed blood our salvation has won

Propitiation

the spotless Lamb

Alpha – Omega – God’s only Son

~

The conquering Prince

who shall return on lightning steed

Substitutionary

the risen One

who claims for bride – all who have believed.

As Christmas approaches,

 may we ponder, as Mary did,

on the things that we’ve been told

 about our Messiah and soon returning King.

~

Happy Thanksgiving to my dear American  friends!

In his heart a man plans his course,

but the Lord determines his steps.

Proverbs 16:9

~

Many are the plans in a man’s heart,

but it is the Lord’s purpose that prevails.

Proverbs 19:21

Seal of Approval

Plans we may make

details of dreams drawn

but unless they’re stamped

with Your seal, Lord

all is wasted and gone

~

Hopes we may have

longings that linger lucid

but unless they’re lifted

before You, Lord

all is lost and fruitless

~

Freewill may be ours

choices within each mind

but unless we’re submitted

to You, Lord

no peace will we find.

Wow, I cannot believe how many detours

my life has taken from the road map

 I had drawn out so many years ago.

~

And as I look back,

much of them make sense

to my very limited mind.

~

God sees what’s ahead

 in the fabric of our lives

He knows the thread count

When Simon Peter saw this,

he fell at Jesus’ knees and said,

“Go away from me, Lord;

I am a sinful man!”

Luke 5:8

My Healing Wine

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

The more days that pass

The more aware I am

of my crimes of shame

nailed into your hands

~

Though I’ve grown in You

 by your holy grace

So much more I need

as I seek your face

~

Your pure Light reveals

and exposes my greed

all my sinful thoughts

and any false beliefs

~

From your open side

poured out love Divine

Mercy’s cleansing flood

and my healing wine.

One Sunday, years ago, a godly, elderly lady stood up in church to share with us how ashamed she was

for some critical thoughts she had had toward a young mother with an unruly child.

She had repented, inwardly, on the spot

 and chose to bless the mother instead; she read to the child.

~

I was deeply impressed with how humble

and how teachable this lovely lady was.

The depth of her remorse over her own sin

was a sermon for all of us that Sunday.

~

Woe to me!” I cried.

“I am ruined! For I am a man of unclean lips,

and I live among a people of unclean lips,

and my eyes have seen the King,

the Lord Almighty.”

Isaiah 6:5

I Call on You

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

~

I call on you, O God, for you will answer me;

give ear to me and hear my prayer.

Show the wonder of your great love,

you who save by your right hand

those who take refuge in you from their foes.

Keep me as the apple of your eye;

hide me in the shadow of your wings

Psalm 17:6-8

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

I Call on You

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

When my heart beats

a rhythm of fear

I pray that your Spirit

would draw me near

~

For your Love sings faith

 your touch gives hope

 leading me to help

so I may cope

~

For to suffer alone

is no path to Light

I need call on You

in the dark of my night.

This week I am feeling thankful for a praying husband.

What are you thankful for?
