Faith Is A Verb

Faith is not something you have, faith is something you use each and everyday of your ChristIan life. In short faith is a verb, an action word. You must exercise your faith in order to get your faith to grow. So instead of sitting around saying you have faith get out there and use your faith.

Part of what I do to exercise my faith is to write. I write a lot of faith based poetry as well as song lyrics and stories. Writing helps to keep me anchored in my faith as well helps me grow in my faith.

I use to publish them as two separate groupings. I’ve decided to combine them into into one offering of faith based writ it’s. So even though this is labeled as the eighth volume it is the first combined issue. I hope you enjoy both the poems and the lyrics. I also hope they offer you

A Test

Test

This is only a test

For the next 60,70,80

Years

You’ll be part of a test

Called life

You can’t change the channel

Turn it off

So you gotta get ready

Expect

The unexpected

Sometimes you’ll pass

Many times

You will fail

But remember

This is only

A test

The best comes later

Jesus Said

Jesus said I Am

Jesus said I Am

Not I was

Would or

Will be


I Am

The Truth

The Life

The Way


I Am

The One

Who came

Who died

Who rose

Again in three days

I Am

Know It All

I lived my life

Like I know it all

I’d go around bragging

About the things I could do

How I was greater

than the people I knew

I never saw

The error of my ways

Until it happened

Suddenly

Maybe it took a day

Maybe just a few

But I truly know

In my heart

The thing I must do

I must live

More humbly

Not speak so

Bluntly

About how I feel

I must realize

I gotta see others

Through God’s eyes

See them as He

Sees who they are

Only then

Can I truly live

Not getting more

Than I can give

To others who

Come my way

My Mind Is Made Up

A faithful lyric

My mind is made up

I wish it would change

I get so tired thinking

Of the same old things

I feel like I’m stuck

In some deep, deep rut

I want to get out

But there’s always a but

But this might

But maybe that

But, but, but

Can’t get out of the rut

I could, maybe, but


My mind is made up, I know

My mind is made up, yeah I know

My mind is made up


At times there’s comfort

In remaining the same

You know where you’re going

From where you came

I don’t know how, I don’t know when

Someday I hope to

Think to

Maybe

But

Will

Change in my mind


My mind is made up, I know

My mind is made up, yeah I know

My mind is made up

Forever

A Faithful Lyric

Forever oh Lord

Forever oh Lord

You call us to you

Forever oh Lord


Not for one minute

Not for one hour

Not for one day

But

Forever oh Lord

You call us to you

Forever oh Lord


We are your chosen people

Set apart for your good work

To minister to your lost children

Wandering lost deep in the dark


Forever oh Lord

Forever oh Lord

You call us to you

Forever oh Lord


Not for one minute

Not for one hour

Not for one day

But

Forever oh Lord

You call us to you

Forever oh Lord

Fear

Fear

Drives my days

Fear

Walks my ways

Fear

Drives me down

To the lowly ground

I need a rescue

Rescue

Rescue

I need a rescue

Rescue

I need a rescue

Rescue

So Lord please come my way

Lord please rescue me today

Lift me back on my feet

Cause Lord

I’m need your rescue

Rescue

Rescue

Lord I need your rescue today

Gifts

It’s far better

To give than receive

They do say

However

Some people don’t feel that way

There are those who cry


Give, give, give

They don’t care about

The needs of

Those who don’t

Have enough

Others need to


Or put

Food on their tables

All they care

Is if their life remains stable

Instead they need

To give

Before they receive

So others may know

And maybe one day believe

Life can be better

Look and Listen

Look to Jesus

And believe He is

Who He claims

God’s true son

Who has come to redeem us

Bring us back to God


Listen to Jesus

And obey His Word

Live as though

What He’s done

Has transformed your inner soul

Your very being
