God's Ways

God's ways are not our ways
At times we wish they were
How easy it would be
If troubles did not occur.

But through the ways of God
He trains us for a task;
Something precious in God's sight
It helps remove our mask.

God's ways are opposite to man's
And I thank the Lord for this;
For if I walked mine own way still
The narrow path I'd miss.

The path of God is narrow
And the walls are called 'salvation'
Each stone tells a story
For God's way is revelation.

Isaiah 55: 7-12
Richard Merrell



The Clique

'Lord, we forbade that fellow
he was not one of us
how dare he cast out devils
and cause a lot of fuss.'

Now Yeshua did rebuke them
Said, 'Forbid him not.'
This was the first instance of
Party spirit rot!

'I am of Paul;
Apollos for me
I follow after Barnabas
or any of these three'

But if the truth be known
It's Yeshua that I pick
For the Holy Spirit said to me
'Be careful of the clique.'

Mark 9: 38-40; 1 Corinthians 3: 1-6
Richard Merrell



Yeshua is the Answer

I may not have the answer to your question
I may not know the problems you possess
I may not be a man who understands you
I may not fulfill the standard I confess.
I may not measure to the yardstick of the Bible
I may not be a righteous man all the day
I may not think the thoughts that I ought to
I may not utter good speech in all I say.

For the answer I can't give you, Yeshua has it
For your problem I don't know, Yeshua sees
For my lack of understanding, Yeshua has been there
For the standard I can't fulfill, Yeshua frees.
For full measure of the Bible, Yeshua is this
For the righteousness I need, Yeshua lives,
For my mind to be renewed, is Yeshua thinking
For my tongue to speak with grace, Yeshua gives.

Ephesians 4: 20-32
Richard Merrell



A Child's Death

God the Lord has taken
Though He has given too;
For in your times of sorrow
God shows His love for you.
God's love will bring you joy
God's joy will never cease
'cause when you know the love of God
You then know inward peace.
These words I speak to you dear friends
To quieten all your fears;
For by God's Spirit your sorrow I share
I've prayed for you with tears.

And as I prayed God's Spirit groaned
Within my troubled breast,
God told me it was 'by His love
that he would give you rest.'
Your sorrow will be turned to joy
You shall find peace I know
'cause when you seek the risen Christ
His love constrains you so.
Let us praise God for His giving
And for His taking too;
For in your times of sorrow -
God makes known His love for you.

2 Samuel 12: 19-23; Luke 4: 18,19

(written for a couple whose infant died)
