THE GREAT GARDENER

The Great Gardener
Gives Me More
Of His Ways,
And I find This
To be one of
The Most Special
Of Days.

I go first
In The Mornings
To The Garden
Of Prayer
For I find
Deep refreshment
In My Spirit
There.
`

D ear Heavenly Father,
Bless This Day
And all The Things
That We Do
And Say.
In Jesus Name ,
Amen

(It's going
to Be
Great.)
`
EACH STEP WITH GOD

These have
not
Been easy
Paths
We have
Trod,
But we have
Learned
To take
Each step
With God.

HIS UNMISTAKABLE TOUCH

It is His Unmistakable
Touch - -
There is Not
A particle
Of doubt.
There is Something
About It
When It
Comes
That turns
Your Heart
Inside Out!
It is Something
That Touches
All of Me,
My Spirit,
body and
Soul.
It is Something
So Wondrous,
So Powerful
That it changes
My Whole life's
Goal.
`
LORD, I ASK NOT FOR RICHES

Lord,
I ask not,
For Riches
Of this earth.
For I have found
In Thee that which
Holds for Me,
True worth.
I do not ask,
For emeralds, diamonds
or gold,
But just the grace
That I may tell
others of Jesus'
Sweet Story of old.
I ask for just
The simple joy
of Heart
That will keep
Me ever
Of Christ's Life
A part.

`

I HAVE A FRIEND CALLED JESUS

I Have Found a Friend
Called Jesus.
He walks with Me
Every Day.
Life is so simple
Following Him along
His Way.

`
COME LET US HASTEN

Come!
Let us hasten
And not for a moment delay,
Or for Mere trivia
Stop Along
The Way.
Come...
The fields are
Waving With
Ripe grain.
Come, let us hasten
For My Kingdom's
Gain.

`
"WORK FOR GOD"

"Work For God".
The Words ring
Clarion Clear
Like Bells
Within My Heart.
And Their Firm
Tones
Tolling,
Ever T-O-L-L-I-N-G
From My Life
Shall Never
Depart.

`

GOD CARES FOR YOU

Remember,
God Cares.
He will help
you
Come untangled
From All
of Satan's
Snares.
HE will
Lead you
And guide
You.
He will be right
There
Beside you.
God
Cares!

THE BEST WAY

The Easiest Way
Is often Not
The best
Way.
For God
Often
Sends Us
On
Paths that
are
Rough.
But HE,
Good
Shaped
Waits
Smiling
Above
Us
At the top
of the
Steepest
Bluff.
`

GOD'S WILL

All is Well
When I follow
God's Perfect
Will.
When I do not
I always take
A spill.
For
As soon as
I Wander
From His
Path,
His Rod of
Correction
Brings Me
To the bad
Aftermath.
And without
HIS staff
For Me
To lean against
I find Myself
In a battle
Without a
Defense.
O, seek you
Always
The Perfect
Will
of God
Would you
avoid
The Touch
Of His firm
Correcting Rod.

(Exhausted , but happy & fulfilled after Writing much in the night with inspiration and in early morn. 9/3/79)





DO NOT WASTE TIME

Do Not
Waste
My Time,
For Your
Time
Is My
Time -
And precious
Moments
Fly by
While souls
are being lost - -
out on life's
Wide sea . . .
Storm Tossed.



(I have to give priority to Writing. I cannot let it go any longer. How many souls it may lead to Him is my Inspiration.)


THROUGH THE TEARS

Through the Tears
I see HIS Face.
Through the pain
I feel HIS grace.
Through the darkness
I Know
That
HIS PLAN
Encompasses
The Uplift
and
The Salvation
Of Man.
