Bb Minor to B# Major

Psalm 40:1-3

The days are very hard
With so much to do.
They make us marred
Being flat, our attitudes.

“Finishing” one thing,
Then something haps
And back it pings,
Being flat, strength saps.

Time to get some rest,
The body to restore,
But spiritually dispossessed,
Being flat, energy out poured.

Arise, oh person of God.
Be faithful to the task.
Our work’s for You.
Being sharp, note how it lasts.

Another morning’s coming.
The daylight here.
The gladness we’re feeling.
Being sharp, see how we’re endeared.

Resting in You.
That’s how we feel.
Lifting our hearts.
Being sharp, in a Love so real.

— Charles B. Mayes

The music of our lives can go from a major key to a minor one in a matter of seconds.  To get in tune with the Lord, we must constantly pray and watch for the schemes of the devil so we can get back into that major key again.  “There’s within my heart a melody.”  [Luther B. Bridgers – 1910]

Ask

Matthew 7:7-11

Ask and it will be given …
Another hour goes by.
Another day will come.
And He always supplies.

Seek and you will find.
Somewhere it will be found.
Something you are looking for.
Specifically a Person the Answer, profound.

Knock and the door will be opened …
Knowing He’ll answer, wide.
Kind and loving Father.
Kneeling, we are satisfied.

— Charles B. Mayes

[Matthew 7:7 in Italics– New International Version (NIV)]

As we keep asking, seeking, and knocking, God will answer us.  This is a real and compelling promise from Jesus Christ.

That’s Perseverance

 

 

 

That’s Perseverance

2 Peter 1:5-7

Keeping on keeping on –
That’s perseverance.
Sticking to what we believe,
To our faith, adherence.

Asking God to propel
Problems away, clearance.
Moving them completely.
Hoping for disappearance.

Sometimes walking through
With a lot of interference.
Keeping on keeping on –
That’s perseverance.

— Charles B. Mayes

Many times life isn’t so easy.  I remember once telling God, “It’s not easy being a Christian!”  I think that He knows this.  It’s not easy, but Jesus Christ is our friend and help going both before us in the wilderness and walking beside us.  We can persevere.

Done

hchur01 - Weekly Home Prayer Meeting

Done

Just touching the present,
“Done” jumps into the past.
The prayer is requested –
They respond fast.

They take time to act
With words to the Lord,
Forgetting everyday busyness,
They pray with one accord.

When they say, “Done,”
As if yesterday,
I know what they mean –
I can trust them to pray.

— Charles B. Mayes

When close friends say, “done,” when we ask them to do something, we know that it is very important to them and that it is as good as finished.  This is the same with our brothers and sisters in Christ when praying for a certain need.  “Done” gives us the assurance that they will really pray and pray quickly.
