An Old Time Preacher Praised the Lord - By: Susan Y Nikitenko



An Old Time Preacher Praised the Lord
By: Susan Nikitenko

An old time preacher praised the Lord;
Through both thick and thin.
When placed into a nursing home;
Still had joy within.

He rode his wheelchair here and there;
Singing all the day.
He talked of Jesus and His love;
Showing men the Way.

When forbidden to wheel around;
He stayed on his bed.
He did not gripe or grump, nor groan;
But He sang instead.

In glee he served his mission field;
Others watched Him glow.
He left behind a legacy;
It will surely grow.

His children and grandchildren,
Fellowman and friend;
Were all impacted by his joy;
Shining ‘till the end.

Let us sing in times of trouble;
We will touch this world.
Just like that old time preacher did;
Praising our dear Lord.

Because You’re Worthy to Be Praised - By: Susan Y Nikitenko




Because You’re Worthy to Be Praised



I want to write a new song;
And sing so all can hear.
How you changed my life completely;
Wiped away my flowing tears.

I want to sing it outright;
Praises to your precious name.
In the morning and at night;
Everyday no shame.

Because you’re worthy to be praised;
Your hands were wounded for me.
One day I will see your face;
With thanks for setting me free.

This world seems so far from you;
Many have turned aside.
Please, use my serving hands for thee;
And close to you I’ll hide.

Because you’re worthy to be praised;
Your feet were wounded for me.
One day I will walk with you;
Touch your cheek so tenderly.

I will tell you how I love you;
Because you first loved me.
Oh, what a day, great and wonderful day;
To behold your face and say.

You are worthy to be praised;
Your side was wounded for me.
And I will fall down on my face;
Loving, praising you eternally.

 Psalms 18:3
 I will call upon the LORD, who is worthy to be praised: so shall I be saved from mine enemies.

Voices of Troubling Music - By: Susan Y Nikitenko




Voices of Troubling Music
By: Susan Y Nikitenko

Clashing symbols of failure,
Beating drums of fear,
Block that still small voice;
In quietness, listening we hear.

Trumpeting sounds of successes;
Cheering, the band loudly plays.
Get alone in your closet;
Approaching, the Ancient of Days.

Get away from distractions;
That loudly crowd out His voice.
Spending your time in secret;
Prayer, the sport of your choice.

Defeating the enemies efforts;
To pull you away from the Lord.
Quiet times with the Father;
Shut out the noise of the world.

Voices of troubling music;
Constant tapping of sin.
Stay close to Jesus our Saviour.
The battle you surely will win.

The Battle Rages - By: Susan Y Nikitenko

The Battle Rages
By: Susan Y Nikitenko
2009

The battle rages, day to day,
The fiery darts fly nigh.
The enemy is relentless.
He traps the passerby.

Dodge those flaming arrows of doubt;
Duck the lies of demise.
Run from the trickery of lust;
Cover your wandering eyes.

Our weapon is the Word of God;
With shield, by faith we stand.
We guard our heart in righteousness;
And keep our Sword in hand.

Our dear Lord, He leads the battle.
He cries out, “Move ahead!
Keep faith, I’ll guide you through the fire;
Let’s go, lift up the dead."

"Let’s rescue all our wounded troops,
Lead them back into the camp.
I’ll be there to bring you through;
Remember, I’m your lamp."

"The enemy, desires souls;
He wants them all to burn;
Go out and fight, with heavens might
Convince the lost to turn."

"Keep your hand held tight to mine;
Please never slip away.
The enemy, wants to bind you;
And take you as his prey."

"Yes, the enemy, seems so strong,
He’s winning everywhere;
But listen men, let’s fight the fight;
The Truth will soon appear.”

Soon the shining clouds will open;
Rays of radiance will gleam.
The Lord of glory shall come forth;
As though it were a dream.

Peaceful bliss, like a new morning;
Will reign forevermore.
Comforted in the arms of God;
In rest from fight and war.

Just Keep Running - by: Susan Y Nikitenko


Just Keep Running


Get Ready, Get Set, Go!
We are all in a race.
Many round us watching;
Better keep the pace.

Run the race before you.
The devil lingers near.
He’s placing his distractions.
He calls, “Look over here!”

He places things of value.
He places things you love.
He’s placing out temptation.
But place your sights, above.

Keep going, just keep going;
All this world’s but loss.
Keep your eyes fixed, steady;
On Him, who suffered our cross.

Pick up those, beside you
That stumble ‘long the way.
And when your legs get tired;
Stop, then listen and pray.

If the ways a struggle;
You’re pressured by your friends.
Keep on moving Forward;
And leave your friends to Him.

Keep going! You’ll win the prize.
The victory will be won.
When you hear these precious words;
Well done, my child, well done.


by: Susan Y Nikitenko
Word picture of the Christian race
Revised Nov. 6, 2010

This poem is about continuing to move forward
even in discouraging times. The world has many distractions. We need to keep our eyes fixed on Jesus, lest we forget our purpose and fall from the race. Yes, we love our friends but sometimes friends encourage us towards things not pleasing to God. Our goal is to live well, be an encouragement to others and to finish the race pleasingly to God.

God Knows What’s Best





God Knows What’s Best

By: Susan Y Nikitenko
2009

Giving his life to the Lord;
Called to the ministry.
He took a ride on a ship;
It sunk, He died at sea.

Many cried, wondered why,
He so young a man to die;
So willing, a fire for God.
“How can this thing be?”

God has a plan in death.
We may not ever understand,
But we must go on faith;
Knowing life is in His hand.

He sees, the things we can not see.
He moves in ways, so splendid.
His ways are right, and beautiful.
Little minds, we can’t comprehend it.

Our loving Lord, knows what’s best;
Even through the pain.
Just like the death of that young man;
He had a plan of heavens gain.

Men moved by his death,
Gave to God, so willingly;
A heart to serve Him, at His will,
Gave to God their destiny.

God used a death so young,
To move many other men;
To follow, at His beck and call;
To follow His command.

Life, spent in this world;
Is short and temporary.
Many souls were won to God;
By death, some felt unnecessary.

A young, sold out missionary,
Died following God’s will;
Was used more, in his death
Than most, living, ever will.

Most Glorious Truth




The Glorious Truth
By: Susan Y Nikitenko
2009 revised  March 2012

The glorious truth, of our Lord;
Is that Christ, died for my sin.
He arose and I'm justified;
I’m found perfect in Him.

He intercedes both day and night;
He prays for me, yet He’s Lord.
He’s praying for my conformity,
Victory over sin, and the world.

Loving me, He prays for me;
To overcome that evil one.
His hand of grace is on my life.
Praise God! For His dear Son.

I’m in His hand forever.
He holds me there to stay.
Until that great, exciting day;
He carries me away.

One day I will be glorified;
A perfect glowing soul.
Praising in His kingdom;
While, His glory I behold.

Forever, I will praise His name;
For all that He has done.
On that great rewarding day;
I will worship this Great One

With all my brothers by my side;
My sisters there as well.
We will sing and praise the One;
Who saved our souls from hell.

John 17:9 -24



Though We Worship The Lord Here...It Does Not Compare To The Perfected Worship Of Heaven.

The Winning Shoe - Susan Y Nikitenko





The Winning Shoes Intro.
By: Susan Y Nikitenko

This poem is meant to be cute, but at the same time gives an illustrative picture of a real spiritual problem and it's solution. Each shoe represents a belief. Some people trust in a false religion for example. Each shoe represents something someone is trusting in or some idea they live by that is false.
Life is something we are traveling whether it be in bed sick one day and up healthy the next.
We all wear shoes for different occasions in real life. Name brand shoes are wonderful. I love boots and I wear pumps. Hey, and They make great Christmas gifts by the way.

But when looking at this poem think deeper.
Flip flops could be instability or confusion as to what one believes concerning salvation.
Name Brand shoes could stand for one trusting in riches without a care as to where the end will take them.

Some could live a wonderful struggle free life and still in the end will not go to heaven.
Others lives may suffer in this race, but suffering doesn't earn a home heaven.
Now, I'm sure you'll all be wondering about the squeakers. Squeakers represent those that think they just might squeak by. You know, just maybe, they lived good enough to win a home in heaven.

One who is heaven bound. Must have salvation through Christ alone. And salvation is a gift from God. Salvation means you are heaven bound. Salvation means you've been born again and have
a guaranteed win, a home in heaven.

That does not mean one should live carelessly, but every Christian should strive to live a Godly example. Sin does have consequences and the fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom. There are rewards in heaven for those who run well and a loss of reward for those who carelessly run. But to make no effort and have no desire to please the Father through obedience of the Word...... one should make sure they truly have found salvation.

If you find yourself wearing the wrong shoes spiritually speaking and desire the right ones.....Salvations Shoes are available for you.


The Winning Shoe


We the children of earthly men;
Are running in life’s race.
Some are running, oh so slow;
Others at a quicker pace.

Most are running unaware;
Some are running with no care.
Some are running just for fun;
Some are running in a chair.

Because all in life are running;
Towards a finished end.
All will meet that final day;
It could be at any bend.

Some are wearing right shoes;
Some are wearing wrong.
Wearing wrong shoes on your run;
Makes it hard and makes it long.

I see the boots of working men;
I see the hills of fashions world.
I see the flip flops flapping by;
I see the blisters as they cry.

Trusting in a pair of shoes unfit;
Like, loafers or squeakers or pumps.
Some running down the path of life;
While griping and frowning, their grumps.

Some are laughing, some are leaping;
Still, they won’t win in the end.
By trusting in some wrong pair;
That will never, ever, get them there.

But there are runners in this race;
They wear the winning shoe.
Not the Nike, Not the Reebok;
No, No Name brand shoe will do.

Salvation is the winner’s shoe;
That gets one through to heavens gate.
For all that wear these righteous shoes;
Will win this race and celebrate.

While you’re running in some other shoes;
Traveling a road that ends in loss.
Stop right now and change your shoes;
Run to the Lord take up His cross.

Let’s run together side by side;
Wearing Salvation, the winning shoes.
When trusting in Christ the Lord;
You know you’ll never, ever lose.

Let's praise the One, Who gave His Son;
Wearing the shoes of Salvation free.
And when we cross that finished line;
How sweet our victory will be.

………squeak ….squeak….squeak….squeak….squeak

Written 2009

John 14:6
Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.

John 6:37
All that the Father giveth me shall come to me; and him that cometh to me I will in no wise cast out.

Isa 42:17
They shall be turned back, they shall be greatly ashamed, that trust in graven images, that say to the molten images, Ye are our gods.

Scripture Verses;


1 Corinthians 9: 24 – 25
Know ye not that they which run in a race run all, but one receiveth the prize? So run, that ye may obtain.

And every man that striveth for the mastery is temperate in all things. Now they do it to obtain a corruptible crown; but we an incorruptible.

When I See The Blue In The Sky - By:Susan Y Nikitenko




When I See The Blue In The Sky

By:Susan Y Nikitenko
2011

I think of your Amazing Grace;
When looking up- at your blue sky.
I know your love is looking down;
Even when, I'm questioning why.

You are merciful, you are kind;
You hear the weeping, hear the sigh.
And all along there's still a song;
Even through the tears I cry.

You see the picture plain as day;
Like a painted sunset a flow.
You've allowed this struggling;
You're desire is that I will grow.

Knowing you are merciful;
Knowing you are the All in All;
I see your mercy in the blue;
Looking up, I feel so small.

Do we deserve your great mercy?
Do we deserve your flawless love?
Did we deserve your perfect blood;
Or a promised home up above?

This sinful world, I see it's lies;
It fills my heart with inner cries.
I long to see your perfect face;
The one who died and gave me grace.

A perfect body with no pain;
A perfect place, no tears remain;
A perfect Savior, wipes them away;
A perfect home, a perfect day.

With perfect singing everywhere;
And perfect music in the air;
Perfect angels with perfect praise;
Perfect beauty and sun filled rays.

The blue heavens will open wide;
We will see you, walk by your side.
Hear you talk, while our hearts raise;
Our mouths break forth in instant praise.

We do not deserve your mercy.
We do not deserve your flawless love.
We did not deserve your perfect blood;
Nor a promised home up above.

When I see the blue in the sky:
I think of your Amazing Grace.
For I know heaven is my home;
And that you are my hiding place.

The Master Jeweler - By: Susan Y Nikitenko




The Master Jeweler

by: Susan Y Nikitenko
2009

I am a precious jewel;
In my Saviors sight.
Once a stone, within the ground;
Shining now, in His light.

I was dead, hid from sight;
Love, it dug me out.
When my night was brought to light;
Angels praised and jumped about.

I am special in His hand;
A diamond, dingy, dark and dim,
And He is busy molding me;
Into a perfect, Holy Gem.

In this world of dirt and rock;
There lies hidden treasures, lost.
Busy now, He looks for them;
He bought them at the cross.

While He chips your dross away;
With pressure, in the fire.
Remember, He’s the master jeweler;
Your beauty, His desire.

So put yourself, in His hands;
And take His change, as love.
When others see you shining;
They’ll trust in Him, above.

Jesus Is Our Treasure




Jesus Is Our Treasure

Jesus Is our treasure;
He is our everything.
He's the one that we seek;
And the one that we sing.

We've failed Him many times;
But He still loves us so.
He's still refining us;
For He wants us to grow .

To grow closer to Him;
To love Him oh so more.
To follow in His steps;
He is loves open door.

Jesus is our healer;
He heals the broken heart.
He binds the wounds of life;
When life has come apart.

Oh , Jesus is our strength;
He is our greatest need.
His Word is our refuge;
His example our lead.

Jesus is our best friend;
He listens and provides.
He's our place of comfort;
The place where we abide.

Jesus is our treasure;
A valuable delight.
We are treasured by Him;
And precious in His sight.

Is Jesus your treasure?


Luke12:34
For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also.

Live Beyond the Moment - By Susan Y Nikitenko




Live Beyond the Moment

Susan Y Nikitenko
October 2010

Great opportunities;
They are all around.
To give of ourselves;
Many choices abound.

What a critical time;
Revival we need.
Listening to Jesus;
His Word we must heed.

Live beyond the moment;
see beyond today.
Humbly seek our Savior;
He'll bless you in the way.

A new focus of hope;
A beginning again.
Looking to Jesus;
Our most faithful friend.

A vision, a purpose;
A goal and a plan.
Trusting His greatness;
Holy fires need fanned.

Live beyond the moment:
Seek His perfect will.
Peacefully enjoy Him;
While following His will.

Striving for excellence;
A real Christian walk.
Not just religion;
No pious fake talk.

With Prayer abound;
In the work of the Lord.
In the name of Christ Jesus;
Seek the lost of this world.

Live beyond the moment;
Have hopes and have dreams.
Know our God has power;
To provide and redeem.

Just Hold On

By: Susan Y Nikitenko
October 17th 2010

Don't give in;
Don't give up.
Don't let fear;
Interrupt.

Keep the faith.
Walk in grace;
Looking on;
To that place.

Don't lose hope;
Don't lose heart.
He will lead;
Through the dark.

Just hold on;
His love lives.
Just remain;
Positive.

Just hold on;
To His hand.
Just hold on;
You can stand......

Will you fight;
Fight to Win,
For what's right,
And trust Him?

Ever there;
He's aware.
Of the pain;
That you bare.

He is near;
and He cares.
For our souls;
and repairs.

Just hold on;
His love lives.
Just remain;
Positive.

Just hold on;
To His hand.
Just hold on;
You can stand......

Looking down;
From the sky.
He hears you;
Asking why.

It's a test;
Satan's dart.
Thrown at your;
Tender heart.

Christ in you;
Will shine through.
All your joy;
He'll renew.

Just hold on;
His love lives.
Just remain;
Positive.

One day you'll;
Understand.
Just hold on;
As you stand.
