Wisdom’s Voyage

So how can it be that sometimes no means yes?
My weak eyes have grown accustomed to the dark,
And refuse to see the flood while in the arc.
Yet, in God’s wisdom, I trust that He knows best.
His plans are purposeful, not some random guess.
But nonetheless, I quite often miss the mark,
And question His invitation to embark.
Still knowing the Lord loves to love and to bless.

Will my heart change and welcome His brand-new day?
I pray for strength to lift my eyes and see Light.
Yes, the Son still shines though the skies appear grey;
Piercing cloaks of darkness with power and might.
God’s love and mercy are just one prayer away,
Stand firm! This is no time to give up the fight.

Who can measure the wealth and wisdom and knowledge of God? Who can understand his decisions or explain what he does? “Has anyone known the thoughts of the Lord or given him advice? Has anyone loaned something to the Lord that must be repaid?” Romans 11:33-35

His Perfect Grace

And you will know the truth and the truth will set you free.
John 8:32

Lord, how am I justified in Your sight?
How do I know that my soul can be free?
Father God, do You hear my desperate plea?
What is it, Lord, that can make me right?

Only Jesus Christ gives eternal life!
The gift, God’s grace, is simple to receive.
Have faith in Christ, the Son of God – believe!
In the riches of His glory – delight!

My Savior, I’m cleansed by the life You gave.
Raised again for our justification.
Set free by the Truth, You’ve filled up my heart.
My Deliverer, God’s wrath has been waived.
Longing for divine sanctification.
Not even satan can tear us apart.

John 3:36 He that believeth on the Son hath everlasting life: and he that believeth not the Son shall not see life; but the wrath of God abideth on him.

1 John 1:7-9 But if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship one with another, and the blood of Jesus Christ his Son cleanseth us from all sin.  If we say that we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us.  If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.

Romans 4:25 Who was delivered for our offences, and was raised again for our justification.

Romans 5:9 Much more then, being now justified by his blood, we shall be saved from wrath through him.
