Man Of Sorrows

Man of Sorrows

Inspired Breaking of Bread Service June 11, 2017

 

Creator of the world where the world knew him not

Man of Sorrows, the reputation, He got

Came from heaven surrounded by glory

The ignorance of the world tells a different story

 

He was hated and despised without cause

Man of Sorrows, to ponder and pause

The insensitivity of the world where jealousy is strong

Man of Sorrows, His name is long

 

Injustice and selfishness are separate from God

Man of Sorrows, his example to applaud

To walk His way, salvation all worthwhile

Man of Sorrows, upright with a smile

 

Follow His lead to our gain

Man of Sorrows, such a name

Creator of the world where the world knew him not

That is the circumstances for the reputation He got

Oven, pan and Frying pan, Windows in the Lord’s life
Where we can see growth of Christianity and might
The first glimpse of the Lord, shepherds all around
Born in a stable, in a humble life, he was found
The second window, the glimpse to appear
When the wise men came to worship him here
And down to Egypt to get out of Herod’s way
For Herod started eliminating children that very day

And then to a time when Christ could read
And taught the Rabbis spiritual need
Special observations from the glimpse in the oven door
What God the Father had for us in store
Then the glimpse of the Blood Stained Cross
And the Empty Tomb as eternal life comes across
Matthew, Mark, Luke and John
And development of Christianity as his light brightly shone
From the oven door and glimpses to see
What the sacrifices in Leviticus are telling me.

Blind man Helped me See

Blind man helped me see
May 7, 2015

A blind man tapping on the sidewalk as he navigates down the street
A picture of the roadway through his hands and feet
He taps out a scene as he quickly glides ahead
Thinking of his confidence with his erect head
Why can’t I have that motivation to see the things unseen?
And walk in mere shadows with enthusiasm so keen
Being able to see and touch and feel and taste
And yet timid to walk through life
A fear that is a waste
A blind man tapping on the sidewalk
A picture of love and hope
And through all life’s difficulties
We too can find ways to cope

To see the things unseen and to tap into eternal life
The word of the Lord, to avoid the great inferno of his might

Blessed are those that believe as scripture unfolds before our very eyes
And all the wisdom of the Lord for us to memorize.

As a blind man walks by faith while he taps down the street
Its faith in Christ, the knowing to be saved is all so sweet

Its faith that can move mountains the obstacles within
The blessed hope, the glorious appearing, our focus to keep us from sin.
Hope is not wishful thinking of a future, past our prime
It is divine promises by faith alone in our creator’s time

So I see the blind man how he sees things unseen
Only an illustration, of what salvation can truly mean.

A blind man taping on the sidewalk as he taps down the street
The light of the world shines before us, the gift of eternal life at our feet
Let’s accept we are blind as he guides us along
To see by faith alone in his hand we are strong

Tasting the Furry of Niagara Falls

Tasting the Furry of Niagara Falls
By David Smith June 5, 2014

The mighty thunderous roar and turbulence throughout
Huge mountains of water and mist and wind about
And to be at peace where this all takes place
The Horn blower Boat tour, Nature we can face

And be at rest on that stable ship
In the turbulent waters it is an amazing trip.
In the comfort of God’s hand as this turbulence is all around
We can taste His furry
And at peace so safe and sound

So to think of scripture
As the Red Sea divides
And God’s chosen people to solid ground they stride
In the midst of turbulent waters, Mountains gushing all around
Water creating a draft as a hurricane is bound

This is the safety like being in Noah’s ark
In the midst of darkness
God’s word creates the spark
To experience the mist
And full brunt of wind
With wonderment of nature
God’s word to rest therein

With His fingers he put the stars in place
The wonder of the falls His handiwork we can face
To be on the ship the Maid of the mist it was
Under new management creating a buzz
So I see the power of God’s mighty hand
He is in control for this man made ship to land.

And what a great experience where Man and Nature Meet.
The magnificence of God; His power can’t be beat.

There is a special garden in the heavens above;

It is here in Niagara that Louise has radiated love

She gave residence hope, and caregivers drive;

Volunteers have spirit with passion as they thrive;

 

Goodwill was sown thick and emotions were expressed;

And everyone was encouraged to give others their very best

To lead by example with that smile of care

It carries over hurdles and over our despair

 

Bringing out the best in others, a talent we can see

Now that she has left, the torch is up to me

To only fill the vacuum, the void that’s left behind

And that is encouragement in her comfort we can find.

 

So to cling to scripture and faith to forward step;

She was a living angel that gave her loved ones pep.

And so I shed a tear and ask what I can do;

To follow my path in life

As God will lead me through

 

The memory of Louise, I hold within my heart

And pray for daily guidance

So I too, may be a spark

 

Precious memories to embrace

A gift I have received, to pass it on to others

Thy word is to believe

 

There is a special garden in the heavens above

Louise is an example how we express our love.

The Real Lord’s Prayer

The Real Lord’s Prayer

Reference Holy Bible John 17

By David Smith July 24, 2013

The Real LORD’s Prayer where Jesus did pray

To his father in Heaven before the Crucifixion, by the way

It brought Old Testament truths to a new high light

The holy of Holies with power and might

The Holy Place of Father and Son

Identified with the Father: the Hour has come

What an eye opener, where the Holy of Holies prays

Jesus lifts up his eyes to Heaven, the scripture says

That is the tie, where The Word becomes clear

Right here in John, now, let Exodus appear

The Holy of Holies where Moses and Aaron could go

To the sacred place, purified you know

How the Son brings it to light

Union with God, belief comes tonight

The finished work of the cross

The Total body sacrificed was the ultimate cost

That is the joy in John that we hear

God in the flesh

Alpha and Omega becomes so clear.

John Seventeen, the whole chapter says it all

Thy Word is knocking, answer his call.

From Egyt to Canaan: What a Walk!

From Egypt to Canaan What a Walk!

A Series of meetings

 

Seeing the BIBLE as a mirror at a glance

To meditate on the WORD to the present NOT by Chance

How it fits is revel lent to today

From Egypt to Canaan much room to pray

To focus on God in this wilderness of mine

And leave temptations of Satan behind

It happened to the Jews to be lost no doubt

From Egypt to Canaan Heavenly lessons came about

What a joy with all its trials

Walking his way there is reason to smile.

 

 

Meditating on the Red Sea

(While drinking coffee on Break)

He drinks his coffee black and thinks of worldly trials

Like the ten plagues in Egypt

What the world or pharaoh did despise

Moses rod turned into a serpent and ate the Pharaoh’s snakes

The serpent was first mentioned where the Garden was at stake

God turned dust to lice, and what did it imply?

The magicians could not match it, last night we found out why.

God created man from the dust of the ground.

The Creator created life, Satan’s light was never found.

So we have temptations and trials in this land

To leave this cultured world

In the Heavenlies to stand.

So the Jewish Journey from Egypt we can see

In this present world what God’s WORD is telling me

So to Cling to Scripture; God’s Lesson there in life,

For forty years of wondering turns me toward the light.

 

The Manna

The manna the bread from heaven no doubt

Christ is the true bread

His WORD does shout

Exquisite pictures of Christ in Glory

The parables on earth speak of the Bible story.

Everything points to the Old Rugged Tree

Pictures of Christ fascinated to see

Studying His WORD the Work of the Cross

To Know I’m a sinner and no reason to be lost.

Christ died for Me the verses are clear

The Good News of the bible is reason to cheer

Not only the Manna but the Rock smitten twice

Moses lost entry to the Promised Land so nice

It was clear to Moses to speak to the Rock

When He hit that boulder, disaster struck

He got results but God’s Pattern took a turn

Moses and our obedience have to learn.

Stick to God’s pattern and pray and obey.

God’s Word speaks to me

It has something to say.

The Red Sea

 

The Red Sea, a body, not moving and still

A picture of the Lord Jesus, established what a thrill.

As Moses held his staff and the parting of the sea

A commandant a judgement an illustration we can see

And the crossing of the Jordan, a river that moves

Divided from Adam, the city set the groove

The Israelites cross with the Ark of the Covenant possessing.

The Lord is with them as our walk is professing.

Their difficulties and set backs were for our learning.

What’s in it for today, our passion is burning.

All these pictures from Egypt to Canaan

How they fit together, greater knowledge, the explaining.

So study the pattern from the First books of the Lord

Fulfilled in the New our understanding has soared.
