How Far Could He See By Brenda Drake

The greatest day is the day You revealed Yourself to me.

How Far Could He See

Sorely beaten; upon his head a thorny crown roughly placed;
Great spikes pierced His flesh, His beard torn from His face;
Nailed on a cross with a sign above clearly seen.
A sea of faces: some crying, some mocking; evil, and mean.
Raised up with thieves, one on each side,
As a mass of people waited for them to die.
On His back, every sin of every man was known.
The perfect Son of God called each one His own.
How far could He see?” is the question asked.
He saw exactly where you are at.
He saw far into the future and as far back as sin’s start.
He accepted the penalty of each one so He could reign in your heart.
Every sin, every shame, every inability,
He saw and paid for at Calvary.
But great is the day when man’s opened eyes know,
Jesus raised so His new life in and through them could overflow.

Romans 6:23
For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.

1 Corinthians 6:20
For ye are bought with a price: therefore glorify God in your body, and in your spirit, which are God’s.

2 Corinthians 5:21
For he hath made him to be sin for us, who knew no sin; that we might be made the
righteousness of God in him.

Limitless is His Supply By Brenda Drake

Jesus; name above all names is Lord and Savior, and the One that supplies all we need, to Him be all the glory.

Limitless is His Supply

God owns all the eye beholds;
Every diamond, every ruby, every ounce of silver or gold.
The earth is His footstool, everything is in His hand.
Every person and every animal in the land.
He gives abundantly there is no limit to His wealth.
Your God is also the giver of good health.
There is no problem too large for Christ the King,
For in Jesus is the answer to everything.
The air you breathe, the next beat of your heart;
It all has been given man at his start.
Limitless is His supply,
Never does His source run dry.
His storehouse is full and overflows to thee.
You must open up to His abundance receive.
He gives joy, peace, and deep satisfaction within;
On and on the list goes; it never ends.
Redeemed man receives the gift of new life,
Provided by the blood of Christ.
The heart that is home to The Spirit need never fear;
For in God’s mercy he is drawn near.
A Jesus ruled life can claim victory;
In persecution or in famine the captive is set free
In every hurt and in heart-weary toil,
God loves to anoint with healing oil.
His goodness you are able to receive;
All you need to do is to ask and believe.

Matthew 21:22
And all things, whatsoever ye shall ask in prayer, believing, ye shall receive.


Depressed Jess By Brenda Drake

   In our troubled uncertain times, cooped up; with threats of sickness, and possible financial difficulties, it is normal for us to feel a bit depressed.  This poem is a definite exaggeration of this emotion; when we allow life situations to keep us pressed down.  With Jesus on our side there is no need to carry depression as our title.  Don’t be a depressed Jess!  Be a best Jess!

Depressed Jess

Depressed Jess… Oh what a mess,
All he comprehends is unhappiness.
He walks with a dark cloud over- head.
All he sees are obstacles and all he feels is dread.   
His smile points upside down.
His eyes do not look up in hope they look to the ground.
He walks with a heavy step and drags his feet.
He faces every problem or trial with utter defeat.
He sleeps many hours without attaining rest.
The day’s hours are like a sentence, because he’s so depressed.
His depression becomes a friend, and he begins to feel,
Only his outlook in life is true or real.
But he is deceived, the evil one lies to him;
His greatest enemy pretends to be his friend.
There is help for him – it is on the way;
Someone has recognized his plight and has begun to pray.
Depressed Jess has a choice.  He can choose to the Light see,
Or he can choose to continue to listen to the enemy.
If he listens to Jesus he must not in this place stay;
He must decide to change his ways.
Jess has a new name when he decides to depression fight.
Depressed Jess becomes the best Jess, the follower of Christ!

Proverbs 15:13
A merry heart maketh a cheerful countenance: but by sorrow
of the heart the spirit is broken.

John 14:27
Peace I leave with you, my peace I give unto you: not as the world giveth,
give I unto you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid.
