Go ahead, accumulate, don’t hesitate.
Shopping sprees are really great!
The more you earn the more you need.
Time for God’s reality to intercede.

God gives us advice, often we ignore.
That is what His Word is really for.
Pretty things are not considered greed.
We’re buying what we really need.

Everyone has a big T.V. and Video
You feel justified to “Pay as you Go”
The sand of time runs through upon hands,
Then you leave this earth with empty hands,

You depart this world like whence you came

Naked, leaving all signed over in your name.

My God and I

My God and I walk slowly hand in hand.
Upon the sea shore, so firm is the sand
It shifts not, under our moving feet,
As we smile at everyone that we meet.
There is no worry during our morning walk.
As the sun strikes the sea we happily talk.
No beauteous sight will you ever see!
God allows His Spirit to commune with me.

The tide advances swiftly, but no fear have I
For I can hear a solitary gull’s strong cry.
The eddy of wind can let him soar free.
Surely any dangers the Spirit will see.
I walk only by faith and not by my sight.
Trusting God for my future, all seems bright.
Oh yes storms may come on life’s choppy seas.

But you will handle them best upon your knees.

Philippians 4: 6 - 7 “Don’t worry about anything, instead pray about everything. Tell God what you need, and thank Him for all He has done. Then you will experience God’s peace which exceeds anything we can understand. His peace will guard your hearts and minds as you live in Christ Jesus.”

Winter’s sky alas doth oft reach down.
Clouds roll in which causeth us to frown.
Gird your loins, and guard your minds.
Satan works harder when depression he finds.
If your mind is craving some Summer sun,
His interest in your thought life hath just begun.
He offers complaints on a golden platter.
You pass them on and it starts to really matter!
At the end of yet another long and  dreary day,
You finally need to sit down and start to pray.
What doth surround us the question of “Why”?
Satan feeds your mind, being so subtle and sly.

The more you look around the more it seems grim.
Soon enough you begin to grumble and that is a sin.
You are now aware bitterness and strife is part of you.
Friends avoid you now because they know it is true.
Complaints that began with weather suddenly grow.
You start to look around you, judging people you know.
Complaints about inclement weather caused you to sin.
Discontent is now rampant, see the state we are in!
But, stop and consider, where did it all begin?
If your attitude starts to change because of “no sun”
Take your eyes off the world and praise God’s Son.

Psalm 42:45 - 6   “Why am I discouraged? Why is my heart so sad? I will put my hope in God! I will praise Him again --my Saviour and my God.”
