Thank-You Lord

Thank-You  Lord

 I have a Father in heaven above;
I have a table surrounded with love.
I have loved ones who care about me;
I have a country of liberty.

I have eyes to see the stars gleaming;
And ears to hear the river streaming.
A heart that longs to serve our living Lord.
And tears for a lost and dying world.

I have feet that  bring me one step closer;
To the place you have prepared for me.
Another hour, another day:
To love, to live, to follow your Way.

I have a mouth that can taste the snow;
White, clean,cascading, a crystallizing flow.
I can enjoy, knowing each snowflake is new
And everything wonderful came from you.

I can look upon a morning sunrise;
I can see your goodness with faith's eyes.
Look upon a mountain in a foggy view;
Knowing  nothing is impossible for you.

I can behold the colors of the setting sun;
I can see you in all the things you've done.
In the rain, in the rainbow , and here below.
So many blessings, so many to know.

I can smell the fragrance of a flower;
That little tiny hands have picked for me.
And know all the while both are miracles;
I find very, very precious to me.

I have a tongue, that can give Thanksgiving;
That can praise you  and with a new song sing.
Though lowly are we in a small, small, world.
Thank-you, Lord, Thank you, Lord, Thank-you Lord,

Noah And The Ark  

Genesis 6: 8-9

But Noah found grace in the eyes of the LORD.
These are the generations of Noah: 
Noah was a just man and perfect in his generations, and 
Noah walked with God

Genesis 7:5

Noah did according unto all that the LORD commanded him.

I would like to tell you a bible story today about somebody that was especially chosen for a very important job. 
God had looked to and fro the whole earth to find anyone who was faithful.  The world had grown to be a very wicked sinful place and God was very grieved because of it. 

Out of all the people God saw Noah, he probably stood out like a sore thumb to everyone else, because he loved God and feared him.  He wanted to please God with his life and family.  He was going about life as normal, when one day something happened.  God spoke to Noah. 

God told Noah how He was angered by the wickedness of the people.  It made God wish he never made people.  We need to understand that God wants us to love him and fear him.  He hates sin and wants us to turn from it.  God has presented us with choices and as we see in this true story from scripture,  Noah chose to serve God and love Him even though the rest of the known world had chosen to serve sin.

God had a job for Noah, God had, had enough with the rebellion against Him.  He told Noah there was going to be a flood.  It was going to rain so much that the earth would be covered and people,  plant life, and animals would die.    He told him to build an ark.  An ark is a giant boat.     God even gave him the measurements  and told him how He wanted  it to be built. 

What do you think?  Do you think Noah listened to God's instructions?  it was so important for Him to follow God's plan for the ark, because it was a matter of life or death.   If He had followed his own plan the boat would not survive  the storm.  It would break up in the waves  and all of creation would be lost.    God had laid out a plan for escaping the judgment of the flood and following his plan was the only plan that would work.  God provided the way of salvation And it was their choice to refuse or follow.

Noah was a preacher and He preached of the coming flood.  He told people to turn to God because God was going to bring judgment upon the world because of mans sin.

Day after day people who past by could hear the hammers of Noah and his sons, They could hear the saws, they could hear the echoes of building.  They pointed fingers at him, they laughed at him.  They made a big joke out of him and his family. 

The people had never seen rain before because it had never rained from the time of creation.  He preached and warned people and offered a place of safety upon the ark. Each day they scoffed and refused stubbornly and turned their ears away from the warnings.   Noah preached for one hundred and twenty years  and still none would listen.

Do you think Noah and his family ever had a bad day?  Yes they did.  Sometimes they may have hit a finger  with the hammer but  they kept building.  They were made fun of and rejected, but they kept building.  People thought old Noah was crazy, but he and his family kept on building.  Nothing could stop them from building, because Noah loved and believed God and taught his family the same.

God told them to gather two of every kind of animal, two by two,  male and female.  Lions, tigers, donkeys, cats, bears, ....wow.  Every kind?  God has made seemingly unnumbered  kinds of animals.  We must remember God can do anything and we know God was with Noah and blessed him.  To gather every kind of animal would be a miracle in itself.  God had his hand in everything  they were doing, because if God tells us  to do something, better believe he will be right there beside us while we do it. 

Then the  time came,  it was time to shut the windows and doors of the ark.  God said it was time and they heard something,  "Tap Tap,  hear that?  Tap Tap Tap." The rain had started.  People who refused  to believe were ready to listen, but the door was shut, it was too late.  People were banging on the doors, but suddenly only the storm and waves could be heard outside the ark. 

God has provided us a way to escape judgment.  Jesus is our ark, so to speak, and God's plan for redemption.  God loves people but He hates sin.  The bible teaches us that we are all sinners and none of us are righteous or good outside of Christ.  Trusting Christ for our Salvation and what he did on the cross for our sins would be the equivalent  to Noah's family seeking refuge and safety upon the ark.  It was the only way of salvation. 

Jesus is the only way of salvation, salvation from the judgment of everlasting hell.  God loves people and has offered a place of safety in Him but they must listen, believe and take heed to the gospel of Christ  by receiving Christ into their heart and life.  After death the doors will be closed it will be too late,
Trust the Lord Jesus Today as your Savior and friend. 

Father God,
Speak to each one here today, If there's  anyone here who needs to trust you today, open there hearts and minds to your truth.  Let them see that you have opened your arms to them .  That you want them to come to you and trust you for salvation according to your plan. 

If anyone here is having a hard time at school or home or anywhere, give them the strength they need  to keep trusting you. Help them to  keep living for you even if they have a bad day,  just as Noah and his family kept building the ark and loving you even when no one else did.

Sweet Little Boy

Sweet Little Boy


 How sweet your smile;
And little nose.
Your little hands;
Your little toes.

Each word you say;
Each thing you do.
Each time you learn;
Something  new.

I love to hear;
I love to know.
Your love to me;
Is like pure gold.

Each little laugh;
Each little noise.
You touch my heart;
Sweet little boy.

Broken Hearted

Broken Hearted

Broken hearted;
Weeping On;
Broken hearted;
Loved one gone.

Broken hearted;
Comfort no;
With empty arms;
Grieving  so.

Jesus healing;
Day by day.
Restoring joy;
As  heart sways.

Jesus healing;
Speaks so clear,
I know that His
Heart is near.

Jesus listens:
He is there.
Through the sorrow;
Jesus cares.

Jesus Loving:
Jesus healing:
Jesus listens:
When we're grieving.

He Is




He Is



He is the sunshine in my heart.
He is the twinkle in my eye.
He is the glow upon my face;
And He’s the friend, whom I rely.

He is the calmness in my trouble.
He is the peace that fills my soul.
He is the rose of sweet assurance;
And the one who makes me whole.

He is the song I love to sing.
He is the tune I love to play.
He is the reason that I live;
And He’s the joy that fills my day.

He is the hug, when comforts needed.
He is the place I rest my head.
He is the one who dries my tears;
While there, I’m grieving on my bed.

He is the answer to men’s longings.
He is the water for that thirst.
He satisfies that empty place;
He is the one we must put first.

He is the mercy that will pardon.
He is the hand that reaches out.
He forgives and He is calling.
He loves you, there’s no doubt.

He is waiting now for you to call;
He’s provided you, The Way.
He is listening for that humble cry;
Will you trust Him, now, today?

Will you trust Him, now, today?

Thanksgiving - Praise




Thanksgiving  - Praise

This day we want to thank you, Lord;
How excellent are your ways.
All glory shall be given;
None but you deserve our praise.
Kindling in our hearts your love;
Sincerely we lift your name.
Giving  thanks, this thanksgiving;
It is you we will proclaim.
Visible are many blessings;
In this world formed at your command.
No deeper  joy than to know our God,
Gives blessings  in measures of sand.

Thank- You God For All Your
Many Blessings

Will You Give Him Room? Updated


Will You Give Him Room?


 God made people;
There's no two the same.
He thinks of you;
And He knows your name.

Like a snowflake;
Floating  from the sky.
Each one special.
Always a surprise.

You were fashioned;
By God's loving hand.
Like a potter;
Forms the pot He's planned.

He knew of you;
In your mother's whom.
And He knows you now.
Will you give him room?

Long time ago;
On that Christmas day;
There was no room;
In the inn to stay.

He knows of you;
And He loves you too.
Within your heart;
Will you give Him room?
-----

Do you have room:
In your heart-
For Jesus?

He thinks of you;
He made you.
He knows your name.

Do you have room:
In your heart-
For Jesus?

He knows of you;
And He loves you too.
Within your heart;

Will you give Him room?

-----

Open your heart;
Like the stable doors.
On  that  Christmas day;
When Jesus was born.

Open your heart;
Like the stables doors.
Let His star shine in;
And be born again.

Do you have  room;
In your heart -
For Jesus?

Do you have room;
In your heart;


For Him?

Do You?

There Are So Many Things


There Are So Many Things

 There are so many things;
I could praise you for.
There are so many things:
 I could thank you for.

With a heart of Thanksgiving;
I will speak your  name.
You took upon yourself;
My guilt and my shame.

You held me through the storm;
That I could not face.
You held me close to you;
with amazing grace.

How great thou art is true;
It's all about you.
How wonderful you are;
I'm thankful for you.

With faithfulness and love;
Oh, Lord you provide.
You answer our  prayers;
And hear us on high.

You can walk on water ;
You can calm the seas.
You can form a planet;
And still think of me.

There are so many things;
I could praise you for.
There are so many things:
 I could thank you for.

No Greater Love To Know



No Greater Love To Know

 I come to you with praise;
With praise because,
You are mighty but yet,
A God who loves.

You gave your life for me;
Your peace consoles,
I'm saved eternally,
You saved my soul.

You knocked  on my  hearts door;
With a new song.
My blind eyes then could see;
That you loved me.

There's  no one like you Lord;
You are adored.
No greater love exists;
In all the world.

No greater love to know;
Than your love Lord.
No greater friend to know;
In all the world.

Praise Song:

The Fall Guy -Devotional - John 3:16 - corrected




The Fall Guy

How many of you have  ever heard of a fall guy?   When movie makers make a movie they sometimes use a stand in.  The stand in is the one that gets wet or muddy or does a dangerous stunt.  The only thing is the star gets the credit for it by the people who are watching  the movie.  There used to be a show called "The Fall Guy" .  I watched it when I was a kid and sometimes, In the show, the fall guy would even become injured after a stunt.

I was thinking about football and I thought of a "fall guy" that plays for  the football team.  He's the one that pretends to have the ball, pretends to run with it and takes a hit in order to protect the quarterback.  While he's getting beat up, the quarterback has been given the room he needs to make a winning pass.  

He takes the punishment for the quarterback in hopes to bring the whole team  one step closer to victory.  Sometimes he's not noticed, but everyone saw that great pass the quarterback threw.  Everyone saw  the wide receiver catch the ball and run it in for the score.
 Sometimes players may not want to take a hit for the whole team.  When you have one who will follow through on a trick play , better know you have a brave player on your team.

Now we know Jesus is real and everything about him is real.  When Jesus does something it's for real, it's not pretend.  The idea I'm trying to draw from the example is that Jesus took our place.  He took the fall for us.  He took our blame.

Did you know Jesus took the fall for us? He took our punishment.   He died upon Calvary for our sins.  He took our place so that we could become a winner.  We could become a child of God, saved for eternity.  We can live a victorious Christian life, because of what Christ did.  Jesus took the fall for us, let us give him our best.  Let us give him our life and let him direct our path.  He suffered, he was rejected, he was beaten, he died  all for you and me.  So we could be forgiven and made alive in Christ.  Made alive in the same way Christ arose from the dead, He becomes alive in your heart when you believe.
