Feed my Sheep

Over the weekend, most of the leaves on the tree outside my office window disappeared from the limbs. A couple of weeks ago they were vibrant and green. Last week they were gold and red. Then, while I wasn’t looking, they dried up and withered away to crumble into dust and return to the

Follow Me

The Lord has said, “Come follow me.” Man replies, “Just let me be.”

The Lord says the meaning of riches is naught; Man says, “I need all these things I bought.”

Always there’s conflict between the divine And man declaring, “This thing is MINE!”

But some day when all is stripped away, All the

In the Cloak of His Love

Deep in the peace of my Lord Jesus Christ,

At rest from all pain and care;

Lost in a prayerful vacation

From sorrows I have to bear—

There I am rested and given

Restoration of mind and will,

Knowing that though I have problems

My dear Lord is with me still;

And when I

God and Man

Consciousness of God

Is only known by man;

But go ahead, use logic;

Rebuff Him if you can;

 But when argument is over,

You will see what must be true—

Were there not a God,

There would also not be you.

Try to imagine there was no sun,

No stars, no moon, no sky,

No rain or ground it could fall upon;

       Try to imagine that…

 Try to imagine there was no God,

Only a void no power would see;

Impossible to imagine that;

     That’s why God must be.

Living in Him

If you love the Lord

And try hard to keep His ways,

You’ll live with more contentment

Throughout your earthbound days.

Through years filled with His peace;

And every day of life in Him

Your faith will be increased;

And when your life is over,

You’ll see

God came forth from “nothingness”

      no human can conceive;

The very fact that we exist

       is reason to believe.

How Faithful is the Lord

How Faithful is the Lord

I don’t understand the Lord—

No person really can.

The nature of his being

Is beyond the scope of man.

He came from a void of nothing

To create all space and time;

He made the skies and heaven

And he made the sun to shine;.

And he made
