We’ll Talk Another Time

Because He Lives

We’ll Talk Another Time
 (Dedicated to My Aunt)

I phone my dear Aunt
To catch up on old times.
She radiates Jesus,
Her mind sharp and kind.

It’s time to say, “Goodbye” now.
She said, “We’ll talk another time.”
As we click off the phone,
I knew she had Heaven on her mind.

Now when Jesus softly calls her
To come on home to Him,
We’ll talk another time in Heaven,
When He says, “Come on in!”

When we see each other again
Inside the pearly gates,
I will meet you over there,
You and I – we can not wait.

We’ll have eternal life before us.
We will visit for all hours.
We’ll talk another time in Heaven.
We’ll be His and He’ll be ours.

— Charles B. Mayes

When we lose someone very dear to us, it is so hard.  But, when a Christian dies, we have the assurance that they will be in Heaven enjoying life forevermore.

Running to the Tomb

resurrected Jesus

Running to the Tomb
(John 20:1-9; Luke 24: 9-12)

We are running to the tomb
After we hear what the women said.
Was Jesus the Christ –
Alive or dead?

We have to find out
If it is really true,
Seeing the stone rolled away,
Who will get there first, me or you?

Then we both see an empty tomb,
Strips of linen laid in place,
And the folded burial cloth,
That had been on His face.

We now come to belief:
Breaking the bonds of death,
That our Master rose.
Salvation offered, now we’re at rest.

When we also  run to the tomb, we can discover for ourselves the risen Lord who broke the bonds of death and opened the way to Heaven for us through His grace.

Noah’s Story

noah_02

      Noah’s Story

Sin was everywhere,
Grieving God to despair.
God choose my family to be saved.
He, through me, a new way paved.

Building the Ark against the flood.
The work hard, but had to be done.
This was our salvation,
And for others to come.

God shut the door.
Pairs of animals in my care.
Away from the wickedness.
Away from the fear.

Today, people living on this earth,
Your sin could be gone,
If your salvation is in Jesus – the Cross.
Then God’s will is done.

The movie, “Noah”, has done extremely well around the world.  This shows that people are really interested in this.  May this create a new interest in a belief of a worldwide flood.

Running to the Cross

resurrection morning

Running to the Cross

When days are drear,
With not much cheer,
I run to the Cross
For He is now near.

Where else can I go?
Who else can protect
As I depart daily on
My earthly trek?

If I don’t know what to do –
What steps to take down the road,
I know the One whose selfless stride
Carried the Cross and now my load.

And when I don’t trust enough,
Whatever “enough” is,
I ask Him to supply that trust
And He always gives.

Though tired and weary,
From problems one by one,
I know where to walk, jog, then run
When trusting Jesus, God’s Son.

When days are drear,
And not much cheer,
I run to the Cross
For He is now near.

What happens when we have situations that are overwhelming?  Running to the Cross of Jesus Christ, through prayer, is the only answer.  When we have trusted Him as Savior, we can depend on that blood that flowed from Calvary to shield us from Satan, as we continue to put our whole-souled trust in God and obey Him.
