High time

Too busy denying,
Too busy dissenting,
The truth that we know about God.
High time we stop lying
High time our repenting
For breaking the rule of his law.

With sins thick and thin,
Each day we begin,
With thoughts, words, and deeds of our own.
High time, Christ in Him
Confessing our sin,
Forgiven He welcomes us home.

Tipping tables

Tipping tables in my soul
Joined to Him my idols roll.
Merchandise I must beware
Loves to set it’s shop up there.

Matthew 21:12-17 -“And Jesus entered the temple and drove out all who sold and bought in the temple, and he overturned the tables of the money-changers and the seats of those who sold pigeons. He said to them, “It is written, ‘My house shall be called a house of prayer,’ but you make it a den of robbers.”

Exodus 20:1-3 – “And God spake all these words, saying, I am the Lord thy God, which have brought thee out of the land of Egypt, out of the house of bondage Thou shalt have no other gods before me”.

Evil age

He rescues us from hell,
Our punishment His wage,
Delivers us from sin,
As well this evil age.

Galations 1:3-5 – ” Grace [be] to you and peace from God the Father, and [from] our Lord Jesus Christ, Who gave himself for our sins, that he might deliver us from this present evil world, according to the will of God and our Father: To whom [be] glory for ever and ever. Amen.”

Hunger road

He cancels His retreat,
Aware of our distress,
Our King He holds a feast,
Within our wilderness.

With living words and deeds
Providing satisfaction,
His Spirit in us leads,
And quiets our distraction.

Five thousand men plus filled,
Leftovers overflowed.
A feast of life God’s willed
Away the hunger road.

Inspired by Mark 6:30-44 – “And the apostles gathered themselves together unto Jesus, and told him all things, both what they had done, and what they had taught. And he said unto them, Come ye yourselves apart into a desert place, and rest a while: for there were many coming and going, and they had no leisure so much as to eat. And they departed into a desert place by ship privately. And the people saw them departing, and many knew him, and ran afoot thither out of all cities, and outwent them, and came together unto him. And Jesus, when he came out, saw much people, and was moved with compassion toward them, because they were as sheep not having a shepherd: and he began to teach them many things. And when the day was now far spent, his disciples came unto him, and said, This is a desert place, and now the time [is] far passed: Send them away, that they may go into the country round about, and into the villages, and buy themselves bread: for they have nothing to eat. He answered and said unto them, Give ye them to eat. And they say unto him, Shall we go and buy two hundred pennyworth of bread, and give them to eat? He saith unto them, How many loaves have ye? go and see. And when they knew, they say, Five, and two fishes. And he commanded them to make all sit down by companies upon the green grass. And they sat down in ranks, by hundreds, and by fifties. And when he had taken the five loaves and the two fishes, he looked up to heaven, and blessed, and brake the loaves, and gave [them] to his disciples to set before them; and the two fishes divided he among them all. And they did all eat, and were filled. And they took up twelve baskets full of the fragments, and of the fishes. And they that did eat of the loaves were about five thousand men.”
