Unfailing Love

A whisper in the trees,

A bird’s song on the breeze.

The red rose blooming true,

The pristine morning’s dew.

All these things they sing to me

Of God’s unfailing love.

For His Son has set me free

With His redeeming blood.





We aren’t robots.

It’s as simple as that.

God’s desire is for all of mankind to love him and come to him, but he’s not willing to force people to be saved. Even if it’s what’s right for us, we would be no more than robots, and God doesn’t want that.

That’s why it’s now up to us.

Our job as Christians is to bring others to Christ. We cannot force them; some of us might like to, but, unlike God, we have no power but to present the opportunity to others.

Even though God won’t force people onto the right path, he is willing to help us on our mission to bring as many people as possible to Christy. But no matter how hard we try, in the end, it’s always up to them.

God loves us enough to give us free will, even though it could have disastrous consequences. He has also given us a free gift; all we have to do is open it. Once we’ve opened it, we wrap it again and pass it on to others.

So pass it on.


Surrounded By Love

Surrounded by love,

I knew not of my comfort.

I threw love away,

And ignored those around me.

My view of life could not be swayed,

Life was bleak without the day.

Then suddenly all that love,

Was all swept away.

No place to call home,

No penny to call my own.

And during that time I learned,

What love truly was.

I was taught by the One,

Who knew it all,

My lovely Jesus Christ.

So now my family’s the church

Around me,

And I’m happy at last.

Once again surround by love,

But my ignorance has passed.



First, before you do anything else, I want you to think of something. Think of a potato. Now, a lot of people like baked potatoes, right? Creamy, soft inside, maybe with bacon and cheese and sour cream on top. Mmmm….but what happens when the potato is only half-baked? The inside is rather hard, and it’s not hot—though it’s not cold either. It’s not good at all.

That can be kind of like us. Sometimes, when we’re saved, we’re only half-baked. We go to church and worship God, but at school or anywhere else, we follow the crowd. Being half-baked isn’t good at all, not one bit.

When we’re saved, God wants us to follow and love him with all our heart, always placing him first; not just on Sunday. Half-baked Christians aren’t the same. You may see a girl recite ten chapters of Psalms at church, and the next day at school she’s meanly teasing and pushing around one of your friends. It’s doesn’t seem to count, does it?

Don’t be half-baked; God and the others around can tell.


In The Waters

Through the waters,

I had a thought.

“What if I happened to fall out here?”

Much nervousness, it brought.

I tread through waves,

That rose so high,

I could barely see the sky.

But then it happened,

I slipped and fell,

And the waves all covered my head.

I tried to cry out,

But the waves pulled me under,

I felt like a huge piece of lead.

But suddenly I felt a hand,

Tugging on my arm.

It pulled me out into sweet, fresh air.

Suddenly, I was free.

I looked around,

And saw the sky so blue,

And by my side,

Was a man I knew.

“My child,” He said, with tears in his eyes,

“Why did you ever lose faith?”

I sobbed, but through my tears,

He smiled with sympathy, and said,

“Child, it’s alright; your sins have been forgiven,”

I smiled back at him and took his hand,

And he led me across the waters.



The queen of fall…

The leaves were green,

But then they turned,

To colors of orange and red.

They look like a queen,

Adorned on her throne,

Surrounded by awe-struck men.

But again, something happens,

And the leaves begin to fall,

Leaving the tree,

The barest of them all.

Where has the queen gone,

That once ruled the land?

But in spring she’ll come back,

With her scepter in hand.



Verse #3:

Mark 12:30

And you shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind and with all your strength.’

Something most Christians have heard before; it radiates truth, doesn’t it?


Love has been around,

Since the beginning of time.

Love can be found

In a soft, sweet rhyme.

I feel love strongly,

When I look at you;

You stir my heart and blind me,

When I look at you.
