Road To Calvary


As we travel the life of Jesus this week, I will be sharing poems and writings of things that touch my heart. I will end on Saturday with two poems I have written. One I wrote in 1988 and one in 1993.
Both will be for Saturday and Resurrection Day Sunday, for I will not have excess to Internet or service on Sunday.
I pray God will bless you during Easter Week.

Now God himself and our Father, and our Lord Jesus Christ, direct our way unto you. And the Lord make you to increase and abound in love one toward another, and toward all men, even as we do toward you; to the end he may stablish your heart unblameable in holiness before God, even our Father, at the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ with all his saints.
I Thessalonians 3:11-13

And the peace of God, which passeth all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.
Philippians 4:7

The Road To Calvary Lyrics
Rich Gootee, John Schlitt, Jim Cooper
(Hebrews 12:2-3; Philippians 4:13, 19)

When your back’s about to break
Underneath that heavy load
And you can’t take one more step
On that rough and rocky road
When your burdens bring you to your knees
Think on Him on that road to Calvary

When your friends have turned away
And left you on your own
And you can’t find your way back
Through the darkness all alone
When you want to give up and cry out,
“Lord, why me?”
Think of Him on that road to Calvary

On that road, He walked for you and me
On that road, through all the pain and misery
He knew when it was finished
We would have the victory
On that road, the road to Calvary

So if you find yourself out walking
Down a lonely, dead end street
Just remember there’s a road
That leads to eternity
Waiting for all who would believe
Believe on Him on that road to Calvary

Is God Listening?


“Is God Listening?”
Author: Pat Aman

“Is God Listening?”

Prayer is the means by which we take our perplexities to the Father. But do you get the feeling that some people have God’s listening ear better than you do? I love the letter the little boy wrote to God in which he admitted he knew God heard prayers, but he wanted to know when God would be listening especially hard to prayers. In other words he was asking God is there a certain day that you handle prayer for different situations?

I think one of the problems we encounter in praying is that we are inclined to dictate to God what our preferences are. If we have already made up our minds, we may not hear Him when He speak!

As Mark 4: 23 -24 says, “If any man have ears to hear, let him hear…Take heed what ye hear.”
“Listen to what you hear,” He is saying, “You think there is a shortage of my messages, my answers to your prayers? Unplug your ears!”Perhaps our biggest problem is not that we haven’t and don’t hear; if we will be honest we might have to confess that we aren’t always ready to listen! We may have heard but we just do not want to obey. The think God may have made a mistake. In other words we are saying, “God are you sure?”

Catherine Marshall in her classic Adventures in Prayer speaks of “The Prayer of Relinquishment.” She say, ” A demanding spirit, with self-will as its rudder, blocks prayer….Jesus’ prayer in the Garden of Gethsemane, I come to see, is the pattern for us. Christ could have avoided the cross…. Christ used His free will to turn the decision over to His Father. He said, “Dear Father…all things are possible to you. Let me not have to drink this cup! Yet it is not what I want but what you want.’ She emphasizes that there is no resignation in Prayer of Relinquishment. This kind of praying doesn’t slam the door on hope. It’s called “the pliability of an obedient heart.”

Sometimes you as I also maybe faced with the problem, Lord, I just do not know how to pray about this problem.

Praise God, that is not a problem to God. Thanks to the Holy Spirit everybody is equal before God in prayer. The Holy Spirit helps us in our weaknesses, in our improper understanding, and conveys from our hearts to God’s heart what is really there, that which is impossible for us to put into words anyway!”

Friends, God knows our needs before we ever bring them to Him. He is just waiting for us to see if we are ready to turn our life situations over to Him completely.
In other words, “Lord, here I am, I am yours, and I am willing to follow your ways for my life.

Sending to You and Your Family,
Blessings, Love and Prayers,

How Can I Say The Lords Prayer


Can I say the Lord’s Prayer?
Author: Unknown

I cannot say “Our “,
if I live in a water-tight spiritual compartment;
if I think a special place in Heaven is reserved for my denomination, race or creed.

I cannot say ” Father “,
if I do not demonstrate the relationship in my daily life.
I cannot say ” which art in Heaven “, if I am so occupied with the earth that I am laying up no treasure there.

I cannot say ” Hallowed be Thy Name “, if I, who am called by His name, am not holy.

I cannot say ” Thy Kingdom come “, if I am not doing all in my power to hasten its coming.

I cannot say “Thy will be done “, if I am questioning, resentful of or disobedient to His will for me.

I cannot say ” on earth as it is in Heaven “, if I am not prepared to devote my life here to His service.

I cannot say ” Give us this day our daily bread “, if I’m living on past experiences.

I cannot say ” forgive us our trespasses as we forgive them that trespass against us”, if I harbour a grudge against anyone.

I cannot say ” Lead us not into temptation “, if I deliberately place myself,
or remain in a position where I am likely to be tempted.

I cannot say ” Deliver us from evil “, if I am not prepared to fight in the spiritual realm with the weapon of prayer.

I cannot say ” Thine is the Kingdom “, if I do not accord the King the disciplined obedience of a loyal subject.

I cannot say ” Thine is the power “, if I fear what men may do; or what my neighbour may think.

I cannot say ” Thine is the glory “, if I am seeking glory for myself.

I cannot say ” Forever and forever “, if my horizon is bounded by the things of time.

I cannot say ” In Jesus Name. Amen “, if I do not also add, ” Cost what it may, ” for to say this prayer will cost EVERYTHING.

This poem is inspired by “The Lord’s Prayer” found in Matthew 6:9-13.Indeed prayer is not only an act of speaking, but it also means that we pray to ourloving God with all our heart, soul, mind and strength. (Matthew 22:37)
