Psalm 4

Lord be gracious. Shine your face upon us.

Let you name be known upon the earth.

Let the nations find salvation in the power of rebirth!

Oh, praise the Lord, you people. Sing for joy! Be glad!

Life will bring rich harvest. Best you've ever had.

Jehovah God will bless us every one.

From the ends of the earth, oh, let the nations run.

From the ends of the earth, oh, let the nations run.

Run to the Lord you nations. Your kingdoms come undone.

Run to the Lord. Salvation lies with the Holy One.

***

Pessimism may be an obstacle illusion!
***

Life's path can become a "worry" lane,

Yet I walk with Christ well and warm,

For in the midst of tis hellish hurricane,

I have peace in the eye of the storm.

There is an uncanny certain calm

Right here among hades fury.

When I'm carved in the small of His palm,

I''m serene, because I'm sure he

Will still the stinging winds that swarm.

Interlude..........in the eye of the storm.

Think back:

The waves slashed. The winds wailed.

The disciples feared that night they sailed.

"What would come next?", each one vexed.

"Will we be safe from harm?"

But peace was kept by the one who slept

On in faith's eye of the storm.

***

One may rob the song in your heart of its lyrics.
Bravely hum on, that their victory be pyric.

Share what your faith’s about
Spare any excess doubt.
How impotent your puny brawn.
What took so long for faith to spawn?
(a bath in the word, me thinks
will improve your mental hijinks!)
*
You may not claim the vision or give it your name.
Though you did not sire it, for God’s sake fan the flame!


The pessimist, not so smart; almost sinning, is the dimmest.
God knows the end from the beginning: An Eternal Optimist!

From out of doubts gutters faith flutters.

 

Thank you for our daily bread.
Was a token prayer just said?
Appreciation slice by slice, but only a sliver.
Sincere gratitude would be nice for life and its Giver!
(Light a votive ‘n check your motive)

What in tarnation is going on earth?
Total starvation from poles to middle girth.
(His fingers carve, “my people starve!”)
***

In one way or more I hope these enrich.
Take them and prosper; maybe make a mint!
Receive freely. Give freely. No glitch or hitch.
Ulterior motives? Not even a hint!

Funny when you judge another, be it beast or lamb,
You might just discover, you are what you think I am!

How much we love; how well we live,
Distinguished by what we forgive.


Revenge is a grudge sent
To echo god’s judgement!
(I used a small case “g”. It’s true!
To indicate “that” god is you!

)
Life’s a death sentence,
But a bit of repentance,
Plus faith’s clustered deeds,
Will cut the mustard…..seeds!

After whimpering like a pup, endless yapping 'bout problems;

Begging for answers, growling then howling till the big "sob" comes,

Unleash your mind. Retrieve to a "no barking zone!"

Without the baying of your own voice, you'll hear His own.

(Bury your pile, best friend. Don't wolf down this bone.

Chew awhile, then, sink you teeth. There's truth to hone!)

LET IT BE. YES,. FOR SURE!     THINGS THAT ARE NOT ...............CALLED AS THEY WERE.

  WALK BY FAITH.  NOT BY SIGHT.  TURN NOT TO THE LEFT OR RIGHT.

  DON'T LOOK BACK!  READY  SET!  PAST IS GONE. TIME TO FORGET.

  GOD IS REAL.  HE CAN HEAL.   TAKE BACK WHAT THE DEVIL STEALS!

  AS WE G0 FORTH, PRAISING YOU!   (go to chorus]

  WATCH OUT NOW! HERE HE COMES!  HE CAN FINISH WHAT'S BEGUN.

  THE ETERNALIS WHAT'S  REAL!   NOT WHAT YOU SEE OR FEEL.

  SO TRUST IN GOD!  EYES AHEAD.   THY WILL REDONE.   THAT'S WHAT HE SAID .

NO MATTER WHAT THE COST.   I WILL COUNT IT ALL AS LOSS,

 SO I CAN GO ON PRAISING YOU!

CHORUS:

PRAISING YOU! ALLELU!................... THERE'S NO BETTER THING TO DO!

LET EVERYTHING WITH BREATH............ GIVE INTO LIFE  NOT TO DEATH!

AS ALL THE EARTH PRAISES YOU! LET ALL GODS CREATURES PRAISE THE LORD!
