  1. The Big Fish

    The Big Fish

    It happened on a stormy day
    When the sky was dark and gray
    That I was feeding in the sea
    When suddenly in front of me
    I saw a man struggling to swim
    So I closed in and swallowed him.

    For three days and three nights I swam
    Carrying the praying man
    Towards a town called Niniveh;
    Then, without the least delay
    I spit him out onto the land
    And left him kneeling on the sand.

  2. Don't Be Afraid

    Don't Be Afraid
    (a children's poem)

    Dearest child, don't be afraid -
    You've been wonderfully made;
    Extremely special in God's sight
    For He created you just right.

    Do not doubt Christ's love for you
    Or that our Lord is strong and true;
    Remember Jesus is your friend
    And that His love will never end.

    It is important that you know
    Jesus will never let you go,
    Nor will his love grow cold or fade,

  3. That Dreadful Day

    That Dreadful Day

    According to John's prophecy
    There will be an apostasy
    When godlessness will reign supreme
    And peace will not be what it seems.

    Christians will be persecuted;
    Many will be executed,
    For the children of the Lord
    Will be hated by the world.

    And men will know the end's begun
    When they see wars and blackened sun;
    When they see stars fall in a flood;
    The moon turning

  4. Called to Serve

    Called to Serve

    We've been called by God to serve
    Whether or not we have the nerve;
    For He promised to be there
    To help us if we do our share.

    Protected by the Lord Above
    And filled with zeal and holy love,
    We need to be obedient; trust
    To do what we feel sure we must.

    Enabled by the Holy Ghost;
    Surrounded by angelic host -
    God has supplied our every need
    So that we might excel;

  5. - The Thoughts of God –

    Psalm 40:5, “Many, O LORD my God, are thy wonderful works which thou hast done, and thy thoughts which are to us-ward: they cannot be reckoned up in order unto thee: if I would declare and speak of them, they are more than can be numbered”

    Psalm 139:17-18, “How precious also are thy thoughts unto me, O God! How great is the sum of them. If I should count them, they are more in number than the sand: when I awake, I am still with thee”
