Inexplicable Joy

A joy that’s inexplicable,
That gladly overwhelms.
Like eating a glorious meal,
Within a peaceful realm.

It’s accepting the truthful fact,
That tomorrow’s unknown.
By trusting God who never lacks,
You relax on your throne.

You see someone who clearly rose,
From the wrong side of bed.
Instead of becoming a foe,
You share a smile instead.

Joy when you see a newborn smile,
It’s magic and glory.
Joy when you see your Grandma dial,
To share her life stories.

You choose to turn the other cheek,
When someone insults you.
Instead you pray for them to seek,
A joy you know is true.

Like Jesus at the Last Supper,
He knew His time was near.
Despite this His joy was proper,
He gave thanks, ate with cheer.

Though we do have our ups and downs,
I challenge you today.
Choose to have joy, put on your crowns,
You’re vital like sun rays.

I Will Choose You

When struggles come into my life,
When difficulties brew.
I will take heart, I will have peace,
Dear Lord I will choose you.

To live with you in poverty,
Or without you in wealth.
Dear Lord, I’d be a poor woman,
And trust you’ll give me health.

Shadrach, Meshach, Abednego,
All three chose you, Dear Lord.
Therefore the fire could not burn,
Your grace was their reward.

Oh God, your presence overwhelms!
Oh Lord, I am in awe!
Through rattling and raging storms,
You’re with me evermore.

Father you have the final say,
You’re just, and you are wise.
Our perfect Saviour Jesus died,
But indeed, He did rise.

In times of harvest, growth, and crops,
In times of driest grounds.
I thank you for your presence Lord,
Acknowledge you’re around.

When things are great and when they’re not,
I know just what to do.
I’ll put you first above all things,
Dear Lord, I will choose you.

Unpredictability of Life

Featured

This life is unpredictable,

Who knows what lies ahead.

You may envision nine-to-five,

But business calls instead.

A young man never would have thought,

He’d emigrate elsewhere.

Low and behold a scholarship,

Affords to take him there.

A couple who has hopes and dreams,

To start a family.

May never have expected that,

They would have twins with glee.

A boy who stuttered left and right,

Now speaks with confidence.

A girl who dreamt to grow and dance,

Now is a President.

Only God knows our future friends,

The good times and the bad.

Let us make plans, remembering,

That God’s say makes us glad.

God’s Mighty Plan

Featured

To have pure peace will take some work,

It’s not easily gained.

You choose to trust God’s mighty plan,

Contentment in your lane.

Eradicate your worries friend,

All will be well I say.

A must-do is to consciously,

Remember God and pray.

For no one knows tomorrow’s plans,

We haven’t got a clue.

We must therefore trust in the Lord,

Be stuck to Him like glue.

You may be going through it now,

But stay strong, you’ll be fine.

As long as you’re aligned with God,

His ways will make you shine.

Look to how God used barrenness,

To birth John the Baptist.

How He chose a man of few words,

To free slaves from Egypt.

How He chose an unlikely man,

To slay Goliath down.

And then told Paul, who had a past,

To share Gospels in towns.

How God gave us our dear Jesus,

A small and fragile Babe.

How this Babe grew to teach and lead,

And died for us to save.

Dear loved one, don’t look left and right,

But straight above to God.

Trust that He knows what’s best for you,

He looks at you and nods.

Way, Truth, Life

In life we always seek to find,

A peace that calms our day.

Jesus gives us peace of mind,

He truly is the way.

The way, the truth, the life,

For all of you and I.

Jesus, Jesus, Jesus,

We thank you all the time!

He calmed the storm in troubled times,

He’ll give you strength like youth.

He’s worshipped with poetic rhymes,

For He indeed is truth.

The way, the truth, the life,

For all of you and I.

Jesus, Jesus, Jesus,

We thank you all the time!

You and I we’re filled with sin,

But God’s love made things right.

He sent His Son to die for us,

He rose, he gives us life!

The way, the truth, the life,

For all of you and I.

Jesus, Jesus, Jesus,

We thank you all the time!
