Faithful Poems From the Beach Vol 3

Timothy is a Christian who enjoys creating visual art and writing. He has a B.S. in Psychology.

Welcome

To the third edition of faithful poems from beach. In this issue I’ve included poems inspired by seeking to live a faithful and outgoing life. It is hard at times to live in a place where what you value is different than what you see around you.

I came to live near the beach in order to seek a peaceful last few years of my life. Still here it is not always paradise. There are times I shake my head and say why do people seek to do these things or each other.

I turn to art and writing to seek solace. These poems as in all my writing comes from what I see and hear. I hope you enjoy these poems. Until next time stay safe in the current Covid world and stay strong and faithful.

2 Timothy 1:7

“For God gave us a spirit not of fear but of power and love and self-control.”

God does not want us to sit around and be quiet. He wants us to get out there and tell others the truth as found in His Word. He doesn’t want us to be kittens he wants us to be out there roaring like a lion. However we are not to be offensive but loving with our message.

Let’s ROAR

It’s not time for you to be counted

Among those of the silent majority

It’s time to have your voice be heard

It’s time for you stand up and roar


ROAR

Shout out, Shout out in the name of Jesus

ROAR

In silence nothing will ever happen

In silence nothing will,ever change

So Roar

Shout out, Shout out in the name of Jesus

Let others know there is another way

To live this life, to spend all,their days

In freedom from all the cares and worries

So still the world around that Jesus saves


ROAR

Shout out, shout out the name of Jesus

ROAR


It’s not time for you to be counted

Among those of the silent majority

It’s time to have your voice be heard

It’s time for you stand up and roar


Matthew 7:24

“Everyone then who hears these words of mine and does them will be like a wise man who built his house on the rock.”

How well we stand in times of trouble depends on where we put our trust and faith.

Will I Stand

Will I stand or will I fall

When the wind blows

My foundation is rocked

Will I stand tall or will I crumble

Or Give in to the temptations

Which assail me


Will I stand or will I fall

Make the wrong choice

Which ruins it all


No Lord

May I always be

A man of integrity

Chasten my heart Lord

To make the right choice

Proverbs 24:16

”For the righteous falls seven times and rises again, but the wicked stumble in times of calamity.”

When you put your faith and trust in the something other then God’s Word you’re gonna stumbled and fall.

Rise Up

Rise up, rise up all ye people

Rise up, rise up all ye people

Rise up, rise up, rise up

Stand on your feet, get up, go out

Show the world there is no doubt

Jesus is the Lord and Savour of all

He is the one who will not let you fall


People of faith have been quiet to long

Letting the world sing the wrong song

It’s time for the voices of faith to ring

To let the world know the true blessing


Rise up, rise up all ye people

Rise up, rise up all ye people

Rise up, rise up, rise up

Stand on your feet, get up, go out

Show the world there is no doubt

Jesus is the Lord and Savour of all

He is the one who will not let you fall


Rise up, rise up, stand on your feet

Give the world an old but new beat

Tell them it’s come to make a achange

Tell them they’re why the Lord Jesus came


Rise up, rise up all ye people

Rise up, rise up all ye people

Rise up, rise up, rise up

Stand on your feet, get up, go out

Show the world there is no doubt

Jesus is the Lord and Savour of all

He is the one who will not let you fall

Isaiah 41:10

“Fear not, for I am with you; be not dismayed, for I am your God; I will strengthen you, I will help you, I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.”

You are always going to have tough times where fear will seek to overwhelm you. Those are the times when you must remember to,put your faith and trust in God. The writer of the poem “Footprints” put it this way:

“He whispered, "My precious child, I love you and will never leave you
Never, ever, during your trials and testings.
When you saw only one set of footprints,
It was then that I carried you."

Fear Not

Fear not

Where God leads you

To the lions den

Or the fiery pit


God is with you

Walking alongside

He’ll lift you up

When you are down


He’ll give you rest

When you’re worn out

He’ll give you the truth

When you have doubts


Alone, alone

You’re never alone, alone

When you’re in God’s hands

You’re never alone


We were never created

To handle our lives alone

God fights every battle

With you not


Alone, alone

You’re never alone, alone

When you’re in God’s hands

You’re never alone

John 15:19

“If you were of the world, the world would love you as its own; but because you are not of the world, but I chose you out of the world, therefore the world hates you.”

The Bible states that as a follower of will find people treating you differently beciause of what you believe.

The Freak

Some people call me a foolish man

Some people call me a Jesus freak

Some people call me self righteous

Cause I speak of true love, God’s love


People like to talk about me lately

Say I’ve got it all wrong, all wrong

Well I don’t worry, don’t worry what people say

Cause I’m right here, right here, right here, right here

Following God,


Cause I’m a believer

I’m a follower

And I’m a disciple

But I’m still a sinner

Thankfully Forgiven by God’s Son


I’m a lover

I’m a friend

I’m a brother

I sure don’t hate no one


I’m a believer

I’m a follower

I’m still a sinner

But I’m a lover of God

And of all my fellow man


I’m a lover

I’m a friend

I’m a brother

I give my lovin to everyone

Ooh wooh ooh wooh


God’s word speaks the truth, you’ll see

His word opens your heart

Helps you to feel so free

Love him so much more

Some Final Words

There you have five poems of faith and living a faithful life. It is hard nowadays to live in a world which seems to be turning a little upside down. Still we are called to stand and shine the true light of Jesus. This means putting your faith into action no matter what comes your way.
