In His Time

When I first came to the Lord my Saviour - all I had to offer was my rags and regrets - but He accepted them - and changed me ... and there is always room for you too.... with Him .

Offerings I lay at His Feet




In His time - He takes these humble offerings - that

I lay at His feet - and makes them into something

Beautiful - something pure

And sweet .

He Knows Where I've Come From




He doesn't care that all I have to offer is garbage and rags -

He knows where I've come from - with all my overflowing bags - that

Carry the clutter of years of regret - that I've stuffed into cupboards -

And hoped to forget -

But He tells me to lay these things at the foot of the cross - where

He'll sort them all through - and take the gold from the dross - then

He'll only return what He knows is the best - that will bless all my days

Then He'll discard the rest -

So Little To Offer My King



There may be so little then - to offer my King - but

All that remains I'll thankfully bring - to the One who

Is happy to call me His own - and draw me with kindness and

Love to His throne -

I can only bow down - and worship - my Saviour and God - who

Purchased my life - by His own spilled out blood .

He Gave Me A Robe To Cover My Shame




What freedom is this ? - What joy can I tell ? - in

Praise to the One - who saved me from Hell - and gave

Me a robe - to cover my shame - and

When I leave this old world - He's prepared me a home - where

All my days - in wonder I'll sing - my praises and

Worship - to my Lord and my King

What A Homecoming That Will Be



What a wonderful day that will be - when my King welcomes me into His Heavenly home -
Not because I have done anything special or great to deserve it - but just because I believed in the finished work of Jesus at Calvary for me -

That's all it takes to enter heaven ...and I know that one day I will go there ....but I don't want you my friends to be left behind -

None of us knows how long we have in this world - but we can know where we will spend eternity .

God bless you all with love and faith

Bless you dear Gabriel. Never let go of the cross , because that is where the love of our Saviour flows out to a sinful world that He loves so much.
God bless you .

I always wondered to find my kind Jesus.

And I reached the end of my search as I found Him truly in your poems.

Oh bless you dear Rathna . You brought a tear to my eye with your kind comment . He truly is loving and kind , and yet so few people accept that wondrous truth , but His mercies are new every morning for all who will receive .
God richly bless you my friend
Stella
