Poem List


New Years Day

posted Dec 31, 2014, 10:05 AM by Site Admin

Every year when New Years comes 
Some people will make resolutions. 
They will make up a list of things to do 
And search out many new solutions. 

Then they continue their lives as before 
And good intentions will fall by the way. 
Why not make a special effort this year 
To share God's love, and constantly pray? 

Make a pledge to spend more time with God. 
Every day throughout this next year. 
Seek Him and let Him guide your paths 
And you'll have a life with freedom from fear. 

Each morning put all of God's armor on 
To protect you from Satan, the evil one. 
Keep yourself constantly aware of him 
So over evil, the victory will be won. 

Don't let Satan put doubt in your mind 
For he wants you to fail, don't you see. 
Every day call out in Jesus' name 
Command Satan to leave, and he will flee! 

So , if you want this upcoming year 
To be better than those that have past. 
Put all of your faith and trust in God 
And He'll help you, if only you'll ask!

Christmas Day

posted Dec 23, 2014, 6:15 AM by Site Admin

On Christmas day we give honor to Christ's birth 
From Heaven above, He was sent down to Earth. 
He was sent as a sacrifice, right from the start 
By accepting Jesus, from our sins we will part. 

He shared God's wisdom, with all of mankind 
Doing great miracles, healing the sick and the blind! 
On Christmas day focus on why He came here 
And please, don't forget Him the rest of the year! 

He wants you to seek Him and pray every day 
For if you follow Him, you won't lose your way! 
You should love Him more than husband or wife 
Because by following Him you gain eternal life!

So, ask Jesus to come and be your Savior and friend 
And he will stay with you right up to the end. 
But, the end is the beginning of living with Him 
If you'll ask His forgiveness, and repent of your sin!

Thanksgiving Day

posted Nov 25, 2014, 12:03 PM by Site Admin

Every November we celebrate 
A holiday called Thanksgiving day.  
It's a time to reflect on our freedoms ,
And the blessing that keep coming our way.  

No matter what your situation may be 
We're the most blessed people on Earth.  
I give thanks to the Lord every day 
I thank Him for being an American by birth.  

But, please don't wait for Thanksgiving day 
To thank God for all He has done.  
He's blessed our great country many times, 
More, than any other place under the sun!  

Even those living at minimum wage 
Have more than many people elsewhere.  
So, continue to thank God every day 
And if you're wealthy, you may want to share.  

I you're not thankful for what you have now 
Maybe it's time to examine your ways.  
If you're not happy, is God in your life?  
Maybe it's time to seek Him today!

Veterans

posted Nov 20, 2014, 8:14 AM by Site Admin   [ updated Nov 20, 2014, 8:19 AM ]

Whenever our country has problems 
There's a group we can be thankful for.  
It's the American Armed Forces Veterans 
Those we send off in the time of war.  

Our veterans have served us proudly 
Willing to fight for old Uncle Sam.  
Be it on the beaches of France or Iwo Jima 
Korea, in Afghanistan, Iraq or Viet Nam.  

There are always some brave Americans 
Who are willing to perform the task!  
They will fight for the freedom of others 
All their country has to do is ask!  

They'll spend years away from their families 
But for liberty, they will go out and try.  
They'll live in the jungles, desert and foxholes 
And for your freedom, some of them will die!  

If you love this great country we live in 
Remember the cost that was paid, better yet.  
The next time you see a person who served 
Go shake their hand and say "thanks" to a Vet.  

Labor Day

posted Sep 1, 2014, 9:19 AM by Site Admin   [ updated Sep 1, 2014, 9:21 AM ]

Labor day is a holiday to commemorate the work we've done. 
It's a day for taking it easy, and enjoying a weekend of fun. 
But, I use it as a time to reflect, on just how fortunate I am. 
For enjoying all of the freedoms allowed, by good old Uncle Sam! 

We live in the greatest country, by far, on the planet earth! 
And everyday I give thanks to the Lord, for my country of birth! 
We don't have to wait for holidays, to enjoy a time of rest. 
With the proper attitude, we can minimize a lot of our stress. 

Each day can be a holiday, if all of your thinking is right. 
If you make your workplace fun, you will sleep better at night. 
You can really have this life, if you will only ask Jesus in. 
He'll make your life much happier, and He'll forgive your sin! 

God has really blessed this wonderful country where we live. 
So try to be thankful and appreciative of what He did give. 
Then we could live a much better life each and every day. 
If we only give our trust to God, He will show us the way!

You Are Not Too Bad

posted Jul 15, 2014, 12:08 PM by Site Admin   [ updated Jul 15, 2014, 3:47 PM by Damian Wegner ]

Do you think that you have been too bad
For God to forgive all of your sins?
That's where you are wrong, my friend
Jesus wants you to ask Him in. 
 
He's waiting to forgive all your sins
Just repent and you can be saved.
Believe that He died on the cross for you
It was for you, His life, He gave!
 
No matter how bad you have lived in the past
No sins are too bad to forgive.
If you will turn over your life to Him
It will be a much better life you will live.
 
So, tell Him that you believe in Him
And believe that He's God's risen Son.
Ask for forgiveness for all of your sins
That's all you need, a new life's begun.
 
The sooner you give your life to Him
The better off you will be.
Just putting it off for one more day
Could decide where you spend eternity!

Share Your Blessings

posted Jul 15, 2014, 11:58 AM by Site Admin   [ updated Jul 15, 2014, 3:45 PM by Damian Wegner ]

Do you thank God for the blessings received?
Or, do you complain that you don't have more?
Do you share your blessings with others?
Isn't that what Christians should really stand for?
 
That which you share will be multiplied!
If you want more you must give something away!
By sharing with others, more blessings will come!
And, you'll live better with each passing day!
 
If you obey all of God's Ten Commandments
Then many blessing to you surely will flow!
By continuing to share your blessings with others
You'll be blessed far more than you could know!
 
In Deuteronomy, a book in the Bible, it says
Disobeying God will bring curses instead!
So, don't bring any troubles upon yourself
By allowing your faith to become dead!
 
So, live each day constantly thanking God!
And share every blessing that you receive!
This world would be a much better place
If everyone would share and believe!

Prayerful Patience

posted Jul 15, 2014, 11:47 AM by Site Admin   [ updated Jul 15, 2014, 3:44 PM by Damian Wegner ]

How much faith do you have in God?
Are you in great financial need?
Or, perhaps your health is bad
And your suffering is great, indeed!
 
Have you been praying for months or years
And the answer has not come yet?
Your pain is still there, your health is bad
And you are living deeply in debt?
 
Have faith in the Lord, He's always there
Maybe it's patience He's teaching you?
Put all of your faith and trust in Him
And His love will carry you through!
 
I know of a man who suffered for years
But, never gave up on the Lord!
Six years and a day it took to be healed
But he patiently believed God's Word!
 
So, if your prayers are not answered yet
Continue to pray and believe.
Sooner or later an answer will come
And God's blessings you will receive!

Better Than Wealth

posted Jul 15, 2014, 11:37 AM by Site Admin   [ updated Jul 15, 2014, 3:42 PM by Damian Wegner ]

I may not be a wealthy man
But, I have something better than wealth!
I have the Wondrous love of God
And He has blessed me with good health!
 
I live each day with trust in God
Knowing what He has promised me!
Because I believe in Jesus
He has Promised me eternity!
 
Some days are hard for happiness
But The struggle is in our mind.
If we place all of our trust in God
Then true happiness we can find!
 
Each day is not always easy
Satan wants to steal us away!
We need God's power over him
So we do not go astray!
 
But if we put God's armor on
He will protect us in our fight!
Stay aware, that Satan's after you
So Pray to God every day and night!
 
Pray for God's protection daily
And over those that you hold dear!
Ask God's guidance in all you do
And you too, will conquer all fear!

Take Time To Slow Down

posted Jul 15, 2014, 10:41 AM by Site Admin   [ updated Jul 15, 2014, 3:40 PM by Damian Wegner ]

I hear the whisper of the wind
As it rustles the leaves in the trees.
The branches are moving to and fro
With movement supplied by the breeze.
 
I sat and enjoyed a moment of peace
And let the cares of the world go by.
I pondered a while, God's awesome work
Which is lovely and pleasing to the eye.
 
If everyone would just slow down
And enjoy life's many simpler things.
They wouldn't have to look to the weekend
For each day can much happiness bring.
 
It all boils down to one's attitude.
We can be happy and stress-free each day.
If we would only think in a positive light
We'd enjoy life in a much better way!
 
Take some time out to reflect each day
On enjoying a life more sublime.
If you worry, and nothing happens,
Then your worries were a waste of time!
 
So, turn all of your cares over to Jesus
For He died for both me and for you.
If you accept Him as your dear Savior
You will find that His love is true!
