My Weakness
Greta Zwaan, ©2012

In my weakness I am strong, for it is not I;
What I have I do not own, even should I try.
Born a pauper, not born free - having no control;
No concept of whom I am, searching in my soul.

Weary of my constant toil, what do I achieve?
Daily it's the same routine; hardships never leave.
Life is puzzling at its best, nothing is secure,
All my efforts seem in vain; trials to endure.

Why I do the things I do I can't understand,
Unseen powers are my source, I'm at their command.
Still small voices in my head, prod me, drive me on:
There's a purpose in your life, hope is never gone.

Remember now, in days of youth, you are not your own;
Tread in paths of righteousness, never walk alone.
All my strength is still minute if God does not bless,
If I prosper, by His grace, then I must confess:

God is sovereign, God is just, I am but of clay,
Daily I rely on Him, He's my hope and stay.





God Is Love
John McLeod, ©1982

Trembling on my bough of indecision
No way seemed clear and safe to step upon,
I found no answer to my fevered questing
No rack to base my fumbling reasoning on.
And then I heard the soft words of another
That deep within I'd never sensed before,
Saying: God is Love, and Love is understanding,
And Faith the key that opens every door!

Thus, suddenly I was no longer wary
And taking new found courage from each word
I strode forth finding light to cheer and guide me
And all my fears seemed groundless and absurd,
This then is realization of His wisdom,
His Truth that will abide for evermore,
For God is Love, and Love is understanding,
And Faith the key that opens ever door!


The Sparrow's Fall
John McLeod, ©1982

The sparrow's fall
Is seen by God above
For He sees all
For all within His love
And caring
Are protected, kept from harm
In sharing of the life-force
Brightly warm.

The sparrow's fall
Personifies our way
For we, like sparrows, fall
Each earth-bound day;
In truth, believe He cares
Though time grows still,
You pain He quietly shares
And ever will.


BUT GOD II
Greta Zwaan, © 2015

Oh, for the wonderful little word “BUT,"
Where God brings solutions to bear;
Where, lost in our sin, resulting in death,
God has been saying, “I care."

He does not choose the road we take,
Yet guide posts are marked on the way;
We seek the path that brings pleasures and joy,
Not knowing it leads us astray.

BUT GOD,in His wisdom persuades us to turn,
Not walk on the road that brings pain.
The straight, narrow path near the river of peace,
Grants joy and the power to sustain.

The wide road of pleasure lasts but a few days,
All too soon we are left with regret.
Change your direction while there’s still time,
And God will annul every debt.


Revealing Christian quotes:

I am so small before the Almighty God that I am only visible and
useful through His grace.
Byron R. Pulsifer

Sometimes the Lord will lead us differently from where we would like to go.
But what we must come to recognize is that the will of God is perfect,
and we should never be afraid of it.
Greg Laurie

God wants to make us big enough to admire Him with wonder and delight.
A. W. Tozer

Too often we try to use God to change our circumstance,
when God is trying to use our circumstance to change us.
Nicky Gumbel
