Straight Paths


Oh strengthen
my weak knees

and my hands
that hang down

as I make a straight
path to You

where my healing’s
always found.


I am strengthened for You are with me.


“Therefore strengthen the hands which hang down, and the feeble knees,”

“and make straight paths for your feet, so that what is lame may not be dislocated, but rather be healed.”

Hebrews 12:12,13. NKJV

Sharing His Holiness


God disciplines us
for our good

so we can share
in His holiness

and while at the time
it seems sad

yet it yields the fruit
of righteousness.


I can share in Your holiness through discipline , for You are with me.


“For our earthly fathers disciplined us for only a short time as seemed best to them; but He disciplines us for our good, so that we may share His holiness.”

“For the time being no discipline brings joy, but seems sad and painful; yet to those who have been trained by it, afterwards it yields the peaceful fruit of righteousness [right standing with God and a lifestyle and attitude that seeks conformity to God’s will and purpose].”

Looking Unto Jesus



unto Jesus

the author and finisher
of our faith

let us run
with endurance

this ever
present race.


I can run my race for You are with me.


“Therefore we also, since we are surrounded by so great a cloud of witnesses, let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which so easily ensnares us, and let us run with endurance the race that is set before us, “

“looking into Jesus, the author and finisher of our faith, who for the joy that was set before Him endured the cross, despising the shame, and has set down at the right hand of the throne of God. “

Believe That He Is


It is with faith
that we please You

for if we come
we must believe

that first of all
You are

and that You reward
those who seek.


The One who rewards is with me.


“But without faith it is impossible to please Him, for he who comes to God must believe that He is, and that He is a rewarder of those who diligently seek Him.”

Hebrews 11:6. NKJV

Faith Is


Faith is the substance
of things hoped for

the evidence
of what’s not seen

by which those
who’ve gone before

obtained good


“Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.”

“For by it the elders obtained a good testimony.”

He Who Promised Is Faithful


For He who promised
is faithful

He who promised
is true

that we might hold fast
our confession

of the hope we have
in You.


The Faithful One is with me.


“Let us hold fast the confession of our hope without wavering, for He who promised is faithful.”

“But we are not of those who draw back to perdition. But of those who believe to the saving of the soul.”

Through The Blood


According to
God’s will

we who believe
are sanctified

set apart
as holy

through the blood of
Jesus Christ.


I am set apart as holy for You are with me.


“And in accordance with his will [of God] we [who believe in the message of salvation] have been sanctified [that is, set apart as holy for God and His purposes] through the offering of the body of Jesus Christ (the Messiah, the Anointed) once for all.”

The Sacrifice Of Himself


By the sacrifice
of Himself

He came
to put away sin

and as we
eagerly wait

He will
appear again.


The One who came and will come again, is with me.


“He then would have had to suffer often since the foundation of the world; but now, once at the end of the ages, He has appeared to put away sin by the sacrifice of Himself.”

“And as it is appointed for men to die once, but after this the judgement,”

“so Christ was offered once to bear the sins of many. To those who eagerly wait for Him He will appear a second time, apart from sin, for salvation.”

Hebrews 9:26,27,28. NKJV

The Ever Living God


Oh how perfect
the blood of Jesus

who offered Himself
as a sacrifice

cleansing our conscience
from dead works

so we can serve
our God of life.


You are with me and cleanse me with Your blood.


” . . .how much more will the blood of Christ, who through the eternal [Holy] Spirit willingly offered Himself unblemished [that is, without moral or spiritual imperfection as a sacrifice] to God, cleanse your conscience from dead works and lifeless observances to serve the ever living God?”

Hebrews 9:14 AMP
