(Re-shared for 2017!) Thanksgiving+Praise+Worship & Adoration to God in Poems & A Salvation Prayer & A Truth-telling Song!

 
Our God is a Mighty God!!
We praise His Holy Name, and We Adore the Almighty King of kings and Lord of lords! 
As we express our exceeding THANKFULNESS to Him, 
We are forever and ever grateful that God the Father gave His One and Only Son, Jesus Christ~ for you and me~ to wipe away each person's every sin, because Jesus, fully Man and fully God, is the One Who takes away the sin of the world!
We praise You Oh, MOST HIGH FATHER GOD, FOR SACRIFICING THE LAMB OF GOD, JESUS, TO GIVE US ETERNAL LIFE!  Your wrath for all the sins and wrongs was poured out upon JESUS as the Perfect Redemptive One, Only He could do this mammoth task for us!!
  
 An Almighty God is He!
An All-Powerful, Ever-Present God is He!
As the great pastor/teacher Charles Stanley says,
"He is the only One Who says, 'I will never leave you, nor forsake you!'"
Oh, Lord, we are totally dependent upon You, and
We give You, LORD, all of the Thanksgiving and Praise, Worship and Love that You so richly deserve.
We are saved ***(Salvation Prayer below) because You foreknew us before the foundations of the world, and You have called us~ nothing have we done to deserve this great Salvation and Lordship from You did answer Your call with a prayer of acceptance in Jesus Christ's, the Son of God, His death on the cross for our sins, arising from the grace in the resurrection, and then following: ascending to the throne where You are at the Father's right hand interceding for us - AND - so that the Holy Spirit would come to indwell those of us who choose You, forever and ever.
Is God's Salvation to us eternal, solid, and never-changing?
Indeed, it is!!  He knew that there would be the fall from grace with Adam and Eve.
Loving Lady, dear, and Good Man, sir: 
It does not matter how wonderful you are...all have fallen short of the glory of God!
Only through the Lord's mercy and grace, completely unearned by us, will you be saved, 
Only in the Name of Jesus Christ, the Messiah.
Commit, please, to Him now, in your own words, or by praying the prayer below.  
You must sincerely want to accept Christ into your heart. 
Evil, mean, bad person- there is much more to you: Do Not harden your heart any longer!!
no one is all bad; even if you are, God accepts you just as you are!
Ask Him to take away your sin, every person must be repentant- turn and change your ways/your wicked way around!- and ask God to be your personal Savior and the Lord of your Life.  Ask God to accept you into His Kingdom, now and on into Heaven when you die one day, which you will surely die. 
This lovely ###picture at the beginning of today's posting portrays God on His throne, and Jesus is at His right hand- interceding for us.  The people there in white, more than we can count- and coming more, more, and more...are God's children who are saved because they have accepted the Lord God's Salvation and Lordship through Jesus Christ, the Son of the Living God! 
Jesus is the "Man Who sits up high and looks down low," as sung so beautifully in the song, "Not About Us":

(Bishop Noel Jones and The City of Refuge Choir!  Fantastic, thank you, Lovers of Jesus!!)
There is no one- no person, thing, entity, or being, no "universe" (a universe is not a god or person)- that can rise higher, deeper, longer, better or be purer/more holy than Jesus is!  For God is Self-created, here before anything ever existed.  Everything comes from Him, through Him, because of  this Holy God, and nothing goes by Him without His full knowledge, wisdom and power.  Because of God's countenance- always the same- yesterday, today, and forever- but so rich and so full that no one can see all of His greatness, angels (and creatures full of eyes, as stated by John, the Revelator, in the Book of Revelation) encircle the Lord constantly, ever in awe and honor and almost disbelief that He is Who He Says He Is- the Great I AM- "I Am Who I Am."  His character, attributes and Names are Holy and Just.  
He cannot have sin in His Kingdom.
If what is written here is somewhat overwhelming and breathtaking, even frightening- you are okay!  You, Friend, are more than okay with God the Father, God the Son- Jesus Christ, and God, The Holy Spirit!! The Lord places you above everything else in creation- that is every single thing that God created- all of it.

Please do not let another day - or even moment in time - pass you by, once again perhaps...take this time to do absolutely, bar none! the most important thing that you can do for your self!
God is profoundly thrilling and amazing!  Give Him a try; you will see.  Pray to Him and ask Him to help you see.  He most assuredly will do that for you.
If you most definitely want to accept Christ's gift, the one that He Alone can give you, of Salvation and having His Lordship in your Life now and forever, then read this prayer and mean it from your honest heart and soul- 
Tell God that you believe in Him right now, for your good that you will NEVER regret.  
However, if you do nothing, you will regret it oh-so-much more than bitterly forever.


~~~A Salvation Prayer~~~ 
I ask You, God, right now to come into my heart and life.  Father, I believe in Your Son Jesus Christ, that He died on the cross shedding His perfect blood to redeem me; I ACCEPT Jesus' Gift!!  I repent from the ways of the past and want to live as You would have me, loving You, then others as myself and helping people, also that they will learn of Who You are- and who they are- in You, Lord!!  I will follow You, Jesus, all the days of my Life into eternity!!  Thank You, Holy Spirit, for coming to indwell me to guide, comfort, and obey what God wants for me.  I want to find a good church that believes in You, Christ, and studies the Word of God, The Holy Bible.  Thank YOU for talking away my sins; You even forget them.  In Jesus Precious Name, the One above All, Amen.        

The Beautiful One

You are the Beautiful,
My Jesus.
Really- the only, the most,
My Beautiful,
My Savior.

How can it be that You
Believe us to be the most beautiful?
You must’ve,
Because You gave Yourself
For us.

I wait for that
Wonderful Day,
When You
Come to get
Me.
 1 John 4:12,15-16

No one has ever seen God; but if we love one another, God lives in us and his love is made complete in us.
If anyone acknowledges that Jesus is the Son of God, God lives in him and he in God. And so we know and rely on the love God has for us.

Toward Him

We can truly say in earnest-

God always has a thing better in Mind
Because each step of the way
Toward Him
Brings a better day!
For those whom He foreknew, He also predestined to become conformed to the image of His Son, so that He would be the firstborn among many brethren… 
For you have been called for this purpose, since Christ also suffered for you, leaving you an example for you to follow in His steps…
The steps of a man are established by the LORD,
And He delights in his [your] way.
(All, NASB)

With You

Those utterly most precious moments

Just with You,

Serene or full-tilt,
There’s nothing that compares.

Oh, how I covet those sweetest moments
If they are only for a few seconds-
Eyes filling with tears of Joy
I guess because I get a hint of the Love
You feel for me…and all of us.

Such supreme happiness and appreciation,
Because: You have healed me.
You have been there even when I
Did not know it through the tough times.
You have shown me friendship in like-minded and the needy.
You have given me the most beautiful Jesus as my Savior
And the Holy Spirit to comfort and guide me…
Because: You Love me.

Thank you, Lord!
      “Know therefore that the LORD your God, He is God, 
the faithful God, who keeps His covenant and His lovingkindness to a thousandth generation with those who love Him and keep His commandments…"
Note: Please remember to pray for your children, grandchildren, great...extended, and so on.  This is what the Word of God says, and it works- His faith is incomparable and always, always true.  Pray for your extended family, also!  My Bible study friends and I agree that we are ever grateful to our grandmas, brothers, moms and dads for praying for us, mainly our Salvation in Christ.  Many of the believers might not be such, were it not for their family and other faithful praying saints.  (We can include church and work friends, neighbors, people from your past, descendants in the future, even *enemies- God says to love and to pray for them.  Many of you do.  I do even the latter since the Lord really emphasized loving and praying for *enemies a few years ago- over and over during a specific period of time and then since from time-to-time; these are God's Echoes, that I would hear on the radio, read in the Bible, hear at church, etc., a message that Christ Jesus has just for me - or you!  *It is hard at times, but I understand what the Lord is saying/requiring, and I want to be obedient to Him, truly.)
 I have two more poems for you today, and then time to go for now!  I hope you have a great Thanksgiving, and no matter what time of year it is, let us be thankful to God for each and everything He has bestowed lovingly upon us.  We have nothing without the Savior and Lord!!  And, even if you are alone and lonely---God is always near, and He is with you, Friend!!  Reach out to someone else, and you will always feel much better.
Jesus' grace, mercy, and healing upon you.     

The Good News of Jesus Christ

The Good News of Jesus Christ
Is that he lives today among us, His believers,
And He reigns o’er the entire world
That none of us should perish.
The Holy Spirit works and hovers
To move us to Christ.
So come, come now
To Lord Jesus
Your Savior.

John 3:16
“For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish, but have eternal life.”

                              Romans 8:39                             
…nor height, nor depth, nor any other created thing, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord.
                                   
Mercies Anew
 Regardless of how tough it gets,
The Message gets through~
Our Lord God Jesus
Loves us so much
His mercies unfold each day anew!
 Philippians 4:13 - (NKJV)
I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.
