Cling To Them
More precious than any gem or stone,
his promises are the truth we cling to.
Countless times You have shown
the glorious things that You can do.
Peace, joy, salvation, and provision,
all these things you’ve granted to us.
Great is your power, and perfect is your vision.
All these you use to sanctify us.
We can cling to these when we feel stagnant.
We can rely on them when we want to grow.
His promises are found within His words and commandments.
From his promises, His blessings will flow.
Trust in God, and always hold tight.
This is the path to a life that is right.
His Love For Us
He healed and bore our illnesses.
He taught us the proper way.
His power increases with our weaknesses.
The good shepherd came to find us when we went astray.
He gave us everything
when we deserve only punishment.
He endured our suffering
so God’s will would come to fulfillment.
He humbled Himself for us.
He became sin for us.
He bled for us.
He died for us.
He returned for us.
All this, He did to demonstrate the love He has for us.
Be Still And Wait
The storm raged,
but the trusting servant was still.
His enemies had him caged,
but he had faith in the LORD’S will.
As wicked men flaunted their treasure,
he wasn’t jealous or envious.
For the wicked are always punished in God’s measure.
God always helps the faithful become victorious.
While others were mocking and seeking to do harm,
the righteous trusted in God and did good.
The Lord will surely use his mighty arm
to aide all those who have done as they should.
Those who delight in the Lord will walk in God’s ways,
and all such servants will inherit the land in the coming days.
Embrace the call of wisdom.
Cherish it more than silver or gold.
Those who would enter God’s kingdom,
should seek to make wisdom his to hold.
Do not spurn it
or hide from its gentle admonishment.
Earnestly seek it,
for from God, it is sent.
Those who have it are blessed,
and their treasures grow.
Those who rely on it will find rest.
Those who have it should share what they know.
Those who fear the LORD have it.
Those who turn from evil demonstrate it.
To Whom All Things Belong
All that you have, he gave to you.
All that you have, he can take from you.
The things you cling to never belonged to you.
The things you covet will never belong to you.
He created all things.
He owns all things.
For His purpose, are all things.
By His grace, he provides all things.
God entrusted these things to us.
We are his chosen stewards.
If we care for what He’s given us,
He will certainly increase our rewards.
Indeed care and nurture all He gives to you,
but never forget whom it all belongs to.
What You Consume
If anger is what you consume,
anger is what you will produce.
The habit you assume,
is the characteristic you will use.
What you plant in your heart
is what your heart will grow.
If a meal of frustration is in what you take part,
then frustration is all you will know.
Instead consume God’s Word,
for it is the bread of life.
Do not let God’s truth go unheard,
for ignorance brings only pain and strife.
Consume the good food that brings truth and love,
Let His Holy word be the only thing you’re full of.
No ceremony can make me clean.
No words can redeem me.
Only Christ can intervene.
Only Christ can set me free.
No good deed can erase my wrongdoing.
No amount of money can save me.
Only Christ is worth pursuing.
Only Christ can lead me.
My heart must be pure.
Appearances are meaningless.
Only Christ can ensure
a life that’s peaceful and endless.
I rely on Christ to cleanse me.
I rely on Christ to sustain me.
