CHRISTIAN ANSWERS

Hi there
You may have seen my section called "Bible Truths" and thought "don´t want that!" but have you ever asked yourself "why does God let kids die and nasty things happen?". Well, the poems here are the answers that He has given to me. So - I have changed the title to "Answers" and hope it will encourage you to have a look. Go on - you´ve nothing to lose! Bye for now, love Tricia xx

This poem came about when I was chatting to someone and they said they did good things and gained "brownie points" so they should be ok for heaven ....

.


GETTING TO HEAVEN

+

.
It’s good to be good to others
but that won’t get you there
It’s good to give to charity
but that won’t get you there
´Don’t steal, don’t lie, don’t cheat or hurt´,
good rules we should obey
But just being a “good” person
is simply NOT the way
There’s just ONE way to heaven,
one path that you must take
Accept the gift that God gave free,
when Jesus died for your sake
It’s not the effort on your part
that writes your name above
It’s accepting God with all your heart
and giving Him your love

I have friends who are Buddhist, Muslim, Wiccan, agnostic, atheist, and those who believe in "the god who lives inside you" I used to think it was OK if everyone prayed to their god - then in church one day these words came to me clearly .....

.


ONE ROAD

+
I used to think ”they’re all the same
All lead to God – what’s in a name”
Mohammed, Allah, Buddah too,
Or “the god that lives inside of you”
But then the Word came clear to me
The Truth of God that I could see
There is One God and One alone
And through His Word He shall be known
Don’t worship men or lumps of clay
Or vague ideas that seem ok
Go to the Bible and there you’ll see
The Truth of God that will set you free

When we were in Majorca we met a nice couple, but they were into Tarot cards. I wrote this one for them.

.
THE FUTURE

+
Don’t trust in tarot, runes and palms
These things are wrong and can do harm
But put your trust in God above
And let Him fill your life with love
The Lord alone knows what will be
The future is not ours to see
But put your life into His hand
And all will be as He has planned
He knows your past, your future too
Such wonders lie in store for you
If you’ll just turn away from sin
And let your Saviour enter in

Again, we were in Majorca and were chatting with the tour rep at the hotel where we stayed. It was coming up to Christmas and he said he couldn´t believe in God because if He existed, why do kids die each day. God gave me this answer ......

.


THE ANSWER

+
“How could He let it happen”
I have often heard folk say
“If there really is a God
why do children die each day?”
“Why is there pain and suffering,
why is there war and strife
–if there’s a God why don’t we have
a peaceful happy life?”
The answer is, there IS a God,
He made you and made me
And then to show how much
he Loves us all, He set us free
We’re free to choose the good or bad,
the path that we will take
But we must reap the harvest
of decisions that we make
God set us free to make our choice
and now He can’t step in
To break His word and turn us
into puppets on a string
But if you want to know the truth,
to find peace every day
Just ask the Lord into your life
and let Him show the way
++++++

.

.

.
SPREAD THE WORD

+
Each day’s an opportunity to witness for my Lord
A chance to spread the beauty and salvation of His Word
Each day’s a time to share the love that He has given me
To tell the wondrous story of the Truth that sets you free
++++++

Our friend David asked us this question

and this is the answer God gave

.


HOW DO YOU KNOW YOU ARE A CHRISTIAN?

.


First of all you must believe that Jesus died for YOU

Accept the Lord into your life and make a vow that´s true

Then God adopts you as His child and guides you all your days

Just listen to your inner voice to hear the things He says

He doesn't promise perfect life where everything is right

But you will know an inner peace that gives eternal light

You´ll want to live the way God says, the Bible shows the way

That´s kind and loving, always helping others every day

And through the trials of earthly life you know that you will be

One day in heaven, happy always, blessed eternally
