Inspired by Breaking of Bread Service
By David Smith July 5, 2015

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

My Bible

My Bible
December 7, 2007

My Bible, God’s Word, tattered and worn
Opened and closed in the wee hours of the morn
The Bible, well used, as pages they turn
Being chiselled in the heart, the scriptures we learn

A battered Bible, Faith says it all
Newness of life, a new birth as we crawl
Then to stand on God’s Word as we shout
It is finished, the Cross, what the Gospel is about

The bible, tattered, well worn, and read
Opened and shut, the Old Nature we dread

The Time Line

The Time Line (Inspired September 12, 2007)

A time line we heard last night

Structure to history, things in order so right

As the world sees importance, tombstone and date

Progression of time as growth has a rate

A new time line as scriptures hit hard

From the Second Birth, as Christ Jesus is in charge

Being Born again as death looses it’s sting

Eternal security in everything.

A new time line as we are fed by his Word

Another dimension where eternity is assured

To grow in Christ, in trials and difficulties too

Not be ashamed of what God can do

The time line from God to measure growth by his way

What a message I got that day

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.

The Grand Piano Compares to Grand Salvation

The Grand Piano Compares to Grand Salvation
By David Smith April 6, 2014

The piano, a story, as it misses a few notes;
Looks like a masterpiece, but the keys are not what the Master wrote.
What a luster finish, the Grand Piano on display
The climax of the showcase, it’s the inside that gets in the way

Can relate to the piano so grand
How to speak and take a firm stand
But it’s the heart that may be out of tune
What the public does not see, can make the Lord God fume

The cost of repair for the piano that day
An honest evaluation, what the appraiser had to say
It’s not the piano and how the music is grand
It’s my relationship with Christ where my sin is at hand

O to measure the standard of God
The Ten Commandments; where my righteousness is flawed
An honest evaluation before judgement day
The finished work of the Cross, what the Redeemer did pay

He did it all to put me in tune
The good news of the Gospel where a new creation can bloom
We are His workmanship in His Second birth
He paid the cost when he came to this Earth.

By grace are ye saved though faith alone
We are His workmanship
He sits on the Royal Throne.
O the Cross, where sin is washed away
Cleansed by His Blood for the Judgement day

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.
