Poet's Corner Thursday: Give Thanks To God Above

Give Thanks to God Above 

Give thanks to God above

His blessings to behold

Every day showers of love

With many graces untold

He opens wide heaven's door

Bringing blessings on the rich and poor

So give praise to His ever Holy Name

Make known the world over His glory and fame

Every day is a precious gift

Sent from the Father of true holy light

So in praise and adoration your voices lift

Unto the God of matchless strength and might

Think of His redemption plan

Bringing salvation to all

On His mercy forever stand

He catches the faithful when they fall

Treasure the small moments always

Bask  in the warm  sun light

Of His loving gracious ways

One day He'll make all things right

Practice the art of gratitude

With a a thankful attitude

Give thanks to the God of grace

As He shelters you in His warm embrace

Give thanks to God above

His blessings to behold

Every day showers of love

With many graces untold

Gospel Wednesday: 2 Corinthians Chapter 9: Cheerful Giver

2 Corinthians Chapter 9

Now concerning the ministering to the saints, it is superfluous for me to write to you; for I know your willingness, about which I boast of you to the Macedonians, that Achaia was ready a year ago; and your zeal has stirred up the majority. Yet I have sent the brethren, lest our boasting of you should be in vain in this respect, that, as I said, you may be ready; lest if some Macedonians come with me and find you unprepared, we (not to mention you!) should be ashamed of this confident boasting. Therefore I thought it necessary to exhort the brethren to go to you ahead of time, and prepare your generous gift beforehand, which you had previously promised, that it may be ready as a matter of generosity and not as a grudging obligation. But this I say: He who sows sparingly will also reap sparingly, and he who sows bountifully will also reap bountifully. So let each one give as he purposes in his heart, not grudgingly or of necessity; for God loves a cheerful …

Sacred Truth Friday: Ask, Seek, Knock

Today's Devo

“Ask, and it will be given to you; seek, and you will find; knock, and it will be opened to you. For everyone who asks receives, and he who seeks finds, and to him who knocks it will be opened.

Matthew 7:7‭-‬8 NKJV

Seek spiritual truth as the Ethiopian eunuch did in Acts 8.

Now an angel of the Lord spoke to Philip, saying, “Arise and go toward the south along the road which goes down from Jerusalem to Gaza.” This is desert. So he arose and went. And behold, a man of Ethiopia, a eunuch of great authority under Candace the queen of the Ethiopians, who had charge of all her treasury, and had come to Jerusalem to worship, was returning. And sitting in his chariot, he was reading Isaiah the prophet. Then the Spirit said to Philip, “Go near and overtake this chariot.” So Philip ran to him, and heard him reading the prophet Isaiah, and said, “Do you understand what you are reading?” And he said, “How can I, unless someone guides…

Poet's Corner Thursday: Seek Those Things Above

Seek Those Things Above

Seek those things above

Christ is in the heavenly realm

Think on spiritual things thereof

Don't let troubles overwhelm

For the spiritual have great affection

Put the earthly aside

With your Heavenly Father make the connection

Follow His Word and guide

Your life is hid with Christ

Out of His love and grace

He paid a high price

Keep your eyes on Him in this faith race

Christ is our life

Christ is our all

He lifts us to new heights

Let the treasures of heaven enthrall

Put to death the evil deeds

On the spiritual build up

Of the kingdom, sow the seed

Take part in the Communion bread and cup

Put on the new

Cast aside the old

To Him stay true

Reach for grace untold

All in Christ are free

All in Him on His mercy stand

Love is the key

As we seek the heavenly land

Put on mercy, kindness

Meekness, patience, humility

These give spiritual stability

Save from spiritual blindness

Forbear with everyone

Forgive often for we all do err

Be right and fair

Imitate the gracious…

Gospel Wednesday: 2 Corinthians Chapter 8: Rich Through Him

2 Corinthians Chapter 8

Moreover, brethren, we make known to you the grace of God bestowed on the churches of Macedonia: that in a great trial of affliction the abundance of their joy and their deep poverty abounded in the riches of their liberality. For I bear witness that according to their ability, yes, and beyond their ability, they were freely willing, imploring us with much urgency that we would receive the gift and the fellowship of the ministering to the saints. And not only as we had hoped, but they first gave themselves to the Lord, and then to us by the will of God. So we urged Titus, that as he had begun, so he would also complete this grace in you as well. But as you abound in everything—in faith, in speech, in knowledge, in all diligence, and in your love for us— see that you abound in this grace also. I speak not by commandment, but I am testing the sincerity of your love by the diligence of others. For you know the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, that though He was r…

Sacred Truth Friday: God's Will

Today's Devo

“Not everyone who says to Me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ shall enter the kingdom of heaven, but he who does the will of My Father in heaven. Many will say to Me in that day, ‘Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in Your name, cast out demons in Your name, and done many wonders in Your name?’ And then I will declare to them, ‘I never knew you; depart from Me, you who practice lawlessness!’

Matthew 7:21‭-‬23 NKJV

Only those who do God's will will enter Heaven.

The Gospel in a nutshell

Moreover, brethren, I declare unto you the gospel which I preached unto you, which also ye have received, and wherein ye stand; By which also ye are saved, if ye keep in memory what I preached unto you, unless ye have believed in vain. For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures; And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scripture…

Poet's Corner Thursday: What If

What If

What if Jesus wasn't even real?
Guilt and shame is all we would feel.

What if He turned away from the cross?
We would suffer eternal loss.

What if He didn't do the will of His heavenly Father?
We would always stumble and falter.

What if Jesus abandoned His mission because He was unsure?
For our sin, there would beans no cure.

What if God, just before the crucifixion , took Him back up to Heaven?
Their would be no forgiveness for our transgressions.

What if ten thousand angels, He called for?
Our sins would increase more and more.

But with Jesus there are no what ifs
The sacrifice He has made so we could forever live.

Gospel Wednesday: 2 Corinthians Chapter 7: Godly Sorrow

1 Corinthians Chapter 7

Therefore, having these promises, beloved, let us cleanse ourselves from all filthiness of the flesh and spirit, perfecting holiness in the fear of God. Open your hearts to us. We have wronged no one, we have corrupted no one, we have cheated no one. I do not say this to condemn; for I have said before that you are in our hearts, to die together and to live together. Great is my boldness of speech toward you, great is my boasting on your behalf. I am filled with comfort. I am exceedingly joyful in all our tribulation. For indeed, when we came to Macedonia, our bodies had no rest, but we were troubled on every side. Outside were conflicts, inside were fears. Nevertheless God, who comforts the downcast, comforted us by the coming of Titus, and not only by his coming, but also by the consolation with which he was comforted in you, when he told us of your earnest desire, your mourning, your zeal for me, so that I rejoiced even more. For even if I made you sorry wi…

One day she will see the light

One day she will see her need for Him
And her journey of faith will begin

One day she will obey His Gospel call

One day she will be made pure and free
And all His beauty she will see

One day His love will break through
And her life will be made new

One day she will see the light
The Lord will take away all her night

Gospel Wednesday: 2 Corinthians Chapter 6: Don't Receive His Grace in Vain

1 Corinthians Chapter 6

We then, as workers together with Him also plead with you not to receive the grace of God in vain. For He says: “In an acceptable time I have heard you, And in the day of salvation I have helped you.” Behold, now is the accepted time; behold, now is the day of salvation. We give no offense in anything, that our ministry may not be blamed. But in all things we commend ourselves as ministers of God: in much patience, in tribulations, in needs, in distresses, in stripes, in imprisonments, in tumults, in labors, in sleeplessness, in fastings; by purity, by knowledge, by longsuffering, by kindness, by the Holy Spirit, by sincere love, by the word of truth, by the power of God, by the armor of righteousness on the right hand and on the left, by honor and dishonor, by evil report and good report; as deceivers, and yet true; as unknown, and yet well known; as dying, and behold we live; as chastened, and yet not killed; as sorrowful, yet always rejoicing; as poor, ye…

"This pasta dish is not really risotto; it only refers to the similar technique used in that famous Italian dish. Like the grains of Arborio rice, pieces of broken pasta are tossed in hot butter or oil before the liquid is added, but here we're going even further, and toasting it to a gorgeous nut-brown. This gives the dish its signature look, as well as adds a subtle nutty flavor."

When my heart cries bitter tears
And I'm overwhelmed by fear?

I turn to You, I turn to You, I turn to You, my Rock and Strength.
I turn to You, I turn to You, I turn to You, my Rock and Strength.

What do I do in the valley low?
Tempted and tried by the foe
And I feel the inner woe?

I turn to You, I turn to You, I turn to You, my Rock and Strength.
I turn to You, I turn to You, I turn to You, my Rock and Strength.

What do I do in times of doubt?
When I'm in a spiritual drought
And it's a dry spell day in, day out?

I turn to You, I turn to You, I turn to You, my Rock and Strength.
I turn to You, I turn to You, I turn to You, my Rock and Strength.

So I know you're by my side
Always around when I have cried
And released the inner sigh

So I'll always turn to You, turn to You, turn to You my Rock and Strength.
So I'll always turn to You, turn to You, turn to You my Rock and Strength.

Gospel Wednesday: 2 Corinthians Chapter 5: Obey

2 Corinthians Chapter 5

For we know that if our earthly house, this tent, is destroyed, we have a building from God, a house not made with hands, eternal in the heavens. For in this we groan, earnestly desiring to be clothed with our habitation which is from heaven, if indeed, having been clothed, we shall not be found naked. For we who are in this tent groan, being burdened, not because we want to be unclothed, but further clothed, that mortality may be swallowed up by life. Now He who has prepared us for this very thing is God, who also has given us the Spirit as a guarantee. So we are always confident, knowing that while we are at home in the body we are absent from the Lord. For we walk by faith, not by sight. We are confident, yes, well pleased rather to be absent from the body and to be present with the Lord. Therefore we make it our aim, whether present or absent, to be well pleasing to Him. For we must all appear before the judgment seat of Christ, that each one may receive t…

Gospel Wednesday: 2 Corinthians Chapter 4: Veil of Unbelef

2 Corinthians Chapter 4

Therefore, since we have this ministry, as we have received mercy, we do not lose heart. But we have renounced the hidden things of shame, not walking in craftiness nor handling the word of God deceitfully, but by manifestation of the truth commending ourselves to every man’s conscience in the sight of God. But even if our gospel is veiled, it is veiled to those who are perishing, whose minds the god of this age has blinded, who do not believe, lest the light of the gospel of the glory of Christ, who is the image of God, should shine on them. For we do not preach ourselves, but Christ Jesus the Lord, and ourselves your bondservants for Jesus’ sake. For it is the God who commanded light to shine out of darkness, who has shone in our hearts to give the light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ. But we have this treasure in earthen vessels, that the excellence of the power may be of God and not of us. We are hard-pressed on every si…

Poet's Corner Thursday: The Last Day

The Last Day 

Oh no. It's the last day
I didn't walk the difficult narrow way

My God I will meet
I feel doom and defeat

Before Christ's Holy throne I appear
Shedding bitter tears

I rejected Him time and again
Now inwardly I cringe

For my sins I'll pay the price
Should've heeded my preacher's godly advice

What was I thinking?
My heart within me sinking

All my deeds, words, thoughts, motives laid bare
I can't cry "Foul" or "Unfair"

I then hear those dreadful words
Pierce my spirit like a sword:

"Depart from Me, you worker of iniquity"
The fires of hell I already see

Oh no. It's the last day
I didn't walk the difficult narrow way

Oh glorious! It's the last day
I walked the difficult narrow way

I'm prepared to My God
Who, all my life, guided me by His staff and rod

I appear before Christ's throne
On earth, I was never alone

I obeyed His Gospel call
He saved me from the fall

To Him I was faithful

Gospel Wednesday: 2 Corinthians Chapter 3: Liberty

2 Corinthians Chapter  3

Do we begin again to commend ourselves? Or do we need, as some others , epistles of commendation to you or letters of commendation from you? You are our epistle written in our hearts, known and read by all men; clearly you are an epistle of Christ, ministered by us, written not with ink but by the Spirit of the living God, not on tablets of stone but on tablets of flesh, that  is, of the heart. And we have such trust through Christ toward God. Not that we are sufficient of ourselves to think of anything as being from ourselves, but our sufficiency is from God, who also made us sufficient as ministers of the new covenant, not of the letter but of the Spirit; for the letter kills, but the Spirit gives life. But if the ministry of death, written and engraved on stones, was glorious, so that the children of Israel could not look steadily at the face of Moses because of the glory of his countenance, which glory was passing away, how will the ministry of the Spirit …

For salvation and eternal life

For our sins, only He could pay

This foundation is strong and sure

Any other foundation will crumble and fall
Built your faith upon Him only
And listen to His loving call

2 Corinthians Chapter 2

But I determined this within myself, that I would not come again to you in sorrow. For if I make you sorrowful, then who is he who makes me glad but the one who is made sorrowful by me? And I wrote this very thing to you, lest, when I came, I should have sorrow over those from whom I ought to have joy, having confidence in you all that my joy is the joy of you all. For out of much affliction and anguish of heart I wrote to you, with many tears, not that you should be grieved, but that you might know the love which I have so abundantly for you. But if anyone has caused grief, he has not grieved me, but all of you to some extent—not to be too severe. This punishment which was inflicted by the majority is sufficient for such a man, so that, on the contrary, you ought rather to forgive and comfort him , lest perhaps such a one be swallowed up with too much sorrow. Therefore I urge you to reaffirm your love to him. For to this end I also wrote, that I might put y…
