The Beauty of Me

My glory is majestic
My power is unmatched
Bow in my presence
The splendor of me

Conceit you say?
No, it’s truth
I may be mortal
Albeit better than you

Say my name with respect
Utter of my doings with care
Hold me in honor
The reverence of me

Conceit some suggest?
I definitely disagree
I’m only human
Although worth more than thee

Behold me and become green
Gaze upon me and see red
I am stunning and gorgeous
The beauty of me

Conceit they propose?
It’s only a fact
I live among the mortals
Being much greater than all

As I rise to face another day,
New hopes and dreams come as ocean waves.
What will the day bring, I’ll never know.
But the horizon in view brings peace and hope.

Inspiration: Poem describing that each new day brings hope through life’s uncertainties, so we should rejoice in everyday. Based upon “Psalm 118:24 – This is the day which the LORD hath made; we will rejoice and be glad in it.”

Calvary

picture4

Jesus gave His life for our sins.
Why don’t you open your heart,
Let Him in?
He paid such a price
So that you and I might have life.
Jesus paid it all on Calvary.

Death has no victory.
The grave has lost its sting.
Because of Him, we now can sing.
We can sing, shout for joy.
We’ll be with Jesus forevermore.
Oh Jesus paid it all on Calvary.

“I go to prepare a place just for you.
Trust in Me and My word,
I’m coming back real soon.
No more sorrow, No more pain.
You’ll never hunger or thirst again.
Oh, I paid it all on Calvary!”

Inspiration: Poem inspired by the sacrifice that Jesus Christ made on Calvary for the salvation of the world. ~TRP~
