OUR THANKSGIVING TO YAHOVAH JIREH

Celebration on all sides,

Thanks to our God Who provides…

For His sheep

Satisfying sleep,

And safety from swelling tides!

He will give us food

That no one else has viewed…

Doing God’s will

Does more than fill,

Our empty tummies inside.

As His Kingdom spreads,

We are sustained by breads…

Manna alone

Leads us home,

Under Christ, our Head.

Growing in spirit takes time,

Soul and body must come in line…

With Christ as King

His glory we sing,

And help the next person in line!

–Jonathan Caswell

PRAY FOR OUR COUNTRY

On this coming Election Day,

Millions of people hold sway…

Some are misled

Others perhaps dead,

The Electoral College in play!

Like in our Civil War,

Both sides God Most High implore…

Prophesy

Fulfilling can be,

A factor in any winning score.

Christian, Muslim and Jew,

All other religions too…

Pray to your gods

Perhaps the odds,

Will improve for your country and you!

–Jonathan Caswell

HE COMES LIKE LIGHTNING

Our Lord has promised that

He won’t leave his people flat…

But will arrive

In the skies

To take us home just like that!

The church has long-awaited

This event most anticipated…

The more He tarries

The more folks worry,

Thinking God ought to be obligated.

Long patient is our Lord God,

Who doesn’t feel waiting is odd…

When all called come in

To His fold he’ll end,

The waiting of those He’s awed.

–Jonathan Caswell

MARRIED AND PRAYING

We used to pray in bed,

With either the sleepy head…

Now-a-day

They read and pray

From their recliners instead!

One or the other reads

Bible according to needs…

Then pray

Over the day,

Pledging to God their deeds.

She claims it’s drawing them closer,

He’s glad that he chose her…

They agree

To mute the TV,

And to God draw closer!

–Jonathan Caswell

THE STORMS AIN’T OVER.

Pray and think about them,

The ones affected by storm…

Losing homes

Collections of tomes,

Will Compassion’s cloak be thrown out  weary and unborn?

–J.E.C.

WHEN MATTHEW COMES TO VISIT…

Here in Massachusetts

We are preparing,

To host Matthews’ remnants

And what those remnants bring…

C-J Management’s come out

With a notice drop

To stock up water food and such==

Especially soda pop!

The Common Room has been declared

A shelter just for us,

In case we lose our power

In it’s generator trust…

Elevators will be off-line

Impossible to use,

The EMTs must use the stairs

for any rescues!

We’re not demeaning folks who live

In current disaster zones,

We pray for all of those

Who lose their very homes…

But each of us must do the things

Preparing for the worst.

A special prayer for those of you

Who face disaster first!

–Jonathan Caswell

PRAY FOR THE VULNERABLE.

Florida’s backbone,

Shortly will be storm-blown…

For all we pray

To get away,

Not caught up in hurricane moan!

We pray they take the time,

To patiently wait in line…

Getting supplies

Without angry cries,

Shouting….”Hey, THAT’S MINE!”

Praying for Holly and friends,

Family, facing these winds…

Stopping blogs

So they’ll not hog,

Data streams on which lives depend!

Maybe poets returning

Find heart fires ree-burning…

Taking our time

To unwind,

Filled with insights they’re learning?

–Jonathan Caswell

WHO CAN BEST UNDERSTAND?

Who has felt such pain,

Over and over again…

Through His living

In His children given,

To Christ by faith, amen.

Jesus a human like us,

Suffered and died with no fuss…

He paid sin’s price

For believers’ paradise,

By faith anyone can get on the bus!

“Nearer my God to thee,”

Healing and joy we’ll see…

Blessing today

Then take us away,

To where Thou ever shalt be!

–Jonathan caswell

ANOTHER BLOG KABLOOEY?

She left without a sound,

Just an attractive picture found…

Has this person stopped

With their idea copped,

Has the tree of their effort turned brown?

Many do get tired

Of needing to be often inspired…

Why do I stay…

In a stubborn way,

It IS NICE to be admired!  😀
