WHERE ARE YOU LORD

Where are You my Lord

Are You on the mountains so majestically hanging high
Are You in the valleys so deep beyond the shinning sky
Where are You my Lord
Are You walking the crystal sand where life's beeches flow
Are You hiding in the forest shadows neath the suns ever glow
Where are You my Lord
Are You resting in Heavens beauty at the Fathers right hand
Are You visiting the darkest torment sorrowing for the banded
Where are You my Lord
Are You shinning in the newborn eyes so bright and so fair
Are You resting in the elders bosom just helping the despair
Where are You my Lord
Are You in our children as they grow in your image so sweet
Are You in our mentor loved ones as they show love so neat
Where are You my Lord
Are You in our hearts patiently showing the right from wrong
Are You in our souls waiting to accept us where we belong
Where are You my Lord
Are You waiting for our faith to accept Your eternal grace
Are You waiting for our hearts to welcome your embrace
Where are You my Lord
Are You ready now by forgiving our sin You did atone
Are You ready to someday take us to Heavens throne
Where are You my Lord

"Where can I go from your God's Spirit? Where can I flee from your presence? If I go up to the heavens, you are there; if I make my bed in the depths, you are there. If I rise on the wings of the dawn, if I settle on the far side of the sea, even there your hand will guide me, your right hand will hold me fast. If I say, 'Surely the darkness will hide me and the light become night around me,' even the darkness will not be dark to you; the night will shine like the day, for darkness is as light to you. For you created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mother?s womb" (Psalm 139:7-13, NIV).

As a child, often times when I would do wrong, I would close my eyes thinking Mom could not see me. How wrong I was. However, not so with our living God. He is everywhere all the time. As David the Psalmist reminds us, we cannot hide from God. Ever. Anywhere. We will either face him now or later..Would it not be much wiser to run to him now. After all, none of us are guaranteed a tomorrow.

"Yet you do not know what your life will be like tomorrow. You are just a vapor that appears for a little while and then vanishes away".(James 4:14)

Hell is crammed full of people who thought they could live forever, as they planned to accept God's salvation when they got too old to do anything else.

"For He says, at an acceptable time I have listened to you, and on a day of salvation I have helped you. See, now is the acceptable time; See, now is the day of salvation!" (2Corinthians 6:2)

How do you come to God? You might ask how much you need to work, how good you need to get or if you may come relying on a good family member . None of this is true. Your salvation is free and has already been bought and paid for, by Jesus Christ on the cross. For you see, you need only except God's grace by your faith, as Christ died to cover your sin debt.

For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith and this is not from yourselves, it is the gift of God? not by works, so that no one can boast. (Ephesians 2:8-9)

Sinners Prayer-Dear Jesus. I realize I am a sinner. By faith, I now accept God's grace. Please save me from my sins.

If you prayed this, start reading the Bible starting with the book of John and get involved ASAP in a good Bible church.

Amen
