7 THINGS GOD HATES

By Judy Lee Jenkins
7_Things2


The Bible indeed is our road map to life.  Yet, our country is rejecting it’s message.  If only we would open up its pages and read it’s life giving words we could avoid the conflicts and battles that we are presently experiencing that are bringing  down our Nation.  If we truly want wisdom and happiness, we should read the contents that are contained within its covers.

God gave King Solomon the gift of wisdom like no other man who has ever lived except our Lord.  His wisdom was so great that the Queen of Sheba traveled from the ends of the earth just to witness his wisdom for herself and left totally amazed!!  King Solomon wrote the Book of Proverbs and has left us tremendous amount of common sense wisdom that would help us avoid the chaotic behavior we see today in our country.

In Chapter 6:16, King Solomon listed 7 things that God hates that man tends to do and those 7 things are presently tearing our Nation apart now. If we could avoid those 7 things, what a wonderful difference it would make in the world and our Nation.  I wanted to bring that message of those 7 things in a song and then end with an admonition to do instead those things that God loves. Those things that God loves are called the fruit of the spirit and are listed in Galatians 5:22.  If only we would strive to do those things instead what a wonderful Country we would have!!

But we are unable to achieve that without a relationship with Jesus.  He gives us that ability!!  Let us also  remember that our God is a loving God and will forgive us of these sins if we humbly repent and forsake them!!  The words to the song are as follows:

THERE ARE 7 THINGS THAT GOD HATES,
7 THINGS HE WON’T TOLERATE,
7 THINGS THAT DEMORALIZE,
7 THINGS FOUND EVIL IN HIS EYES!!

7 THINGS THAT BRING DOWN OUR LAND,
SO AS A NATION WE CAN’T STAND,
7 THINGS THAT CORRUPT EACH HEART,
THAT MAKE HIS LOVING SPIRIT FROM US DEPART.

A PRIDEFUL HEART WITH HAUGHTY EYES,
SUCH A LOOK GOD DOES DESPISE,
A LYING TONGUE, LIPS FULL OF DECEIT,
FAN’S GOD’S ANGER WITH BURNING HEAT!!

INNOCENT BLOOD SO EASILY SHED,
GOD WILL JUDGE WITH TERRIBLE DREAD!!
HEARTS THAT DEVISE WICKED SCHEMES,
GOD DETESTS SUCH THOUGHTS AND DREAMS!!

FEET THAT ARE QUICK TO RUSH INTO EVIL,
GOD KNOWS CAN CAUSE MUCH UPHEAVAL,
A FALSE WITNESS WHO POURS OUT LIES,
GOD WILL TURN AROUND TO ONE’ OWN DEMISE.

A MAN WHO STIRS UP DISSENSION AMONG HIS BROTHERS,
CAN CAUSE DESTRUCTION TO MANY OTHERS,
7 THINGS THAT DEMORALIZE,
7 THINGS FOUND SO EVIL IN GOD’S EYES

THESE ARE 7 THINGS THAT GOD HATES,
7 THINGS HE WON’T TOLERATE,
FOR OUR WONDROUS GOD WHO DWELLS ABOVE,
LET’S DO THE THINGS INSTEAD THAT HE LOVES!!  Repeat last verse.

THE FRUIT OF THE SPIRIT IS LOVE, JOY, PEACE,
GENTLENESS, GOODNESS,MEEKNESS, LONG SUFFERING, KINDNESS, FAITHFULNESS AND SELF CONTROL.  LET’S DO THOSE THINGS INSTEAD!!

WHERE THE ANGELS ARE–TRIBUTE AND FAREWELL TO UNCLE CHICK

By Judy Lee Jenkins
Paratroopers2 Paratroopers1
Chick

   I wanted to write a tribute to my Uncle Chick who just passed away at the age of 93.  Though he was actually my cousin, he was always referred to as the Uncle of the family due to the fact his age was the same as my mother.  After his passing I learned so much more of his accomplishments during World War 2.  I decided to put this tribute in a song called WHERE THE ANGELS ARE.  The words are as follows:

I FELT SO SAD WHEN I FIRST HEARD TODAY,
THAT MY UNCLE CHICK (Charles but always called Chick)
HAD JUST PASSED AWAY.
THOUGH HE LIVED A FULL LIFE UP TO 93,
HIS PASSING GRIEVES MANY BUT ESPECIALLY ME.

MY MEMORIES OF HIM GO BACK A VERY LONG WAYS,
TO MY YOUTH AND SWEET CHILDHOOD DAYS,
I REMEMBER HEARING THEN AT A VERY YOUNG AGE,
HIS HEROIC WAR STORIES AND TREMENDOUS COURAGE.

CHORUS

MY UNCLE WAS A REAL MAN AS BRAVE AS HE COULD BE,
PART OF THE 101st AIRBORNE THAT STORMED NORMANDY,
HE DESERVED THE HERO’S WELCOME
AND THE AWARD OF THE PURPLE STAR,
BUT NOW HIS HIS REWARDS ARE IN HEAVEN WHERE THE ANGELS ARE.
WHERE THE ANGELS ARE HE’S THERE ON THAT STAR,
WHERE THE ANGELS ARE, HE’S THERE ON THAT STAR!!

HE WAS DECORATED TWICE FOR NOT BEING AFRAID,
AS A MILITIA PARA TROUPER ASSISTING A HITLER RAID,
HE BECAME WOUNDED WHEN BLOWING UP A NAZI TANK,
SO AWARDED BRONZE AND PURPLE STARS ESTEEMED HIGH IN RANK.

NOW THAT HE’S GONE, MISSED HE’LL SURELY BE,
FOR HIS SERVICE TO OUR COUNTRY AND OUR FAMILY,
THOSE FAMILY REUNIONS WON’T BE LIKE THEY WERE BACK THEN,
WITHOUT HIS PRESENCE AMONG US EVER AGAIN.

CHORUS AND REPEAT OF LAST VERSE

I SHOULD HAVE LISTENED TO JEREMIAH

By Judy Lee Jenkins

Jeremiah

I think the saddest book in the Old Testament is the book of Jeremiah.  Jeremiah lived about 627 BC. and was chosen before he was even born to be a prophet to the Jewish Nations, namely the tribe of Judah.  He was known as the weeping prophet because he was selected not to even marry but concentrate on calling the people to repent.  God’s anger had kindled against HIS own people for their extreme wickedness and there were also many false prophets assuring the people that all was well in Zion but not so!!  Jeremiah was called to bring the true message to the people of repentance and that God’s judgement would fall if they would not listen.  One of the later Kings of Judah, Zedekiah was one that would not listen and led the people in continued willful sin!!  As promised, judgement fell on God’s people and the King of Babylon, Nebuchadnezzar invaded Judah, killed many of the people and King Zedekiah’s sons and servants right before his eyes.  Then King Zedekiah’s eyes were put out and he was thrown into prison until his death. The people who were not killed such as Daniel were taken in as captives to Babylon for 70 years!!   God’s judgement indeed fell and he used their enemies to reign them in.  The very next book of the Bible is Lamentations and we certainly know why!!

How are we different then Judah?  This country has forgotten God and I worry that we too will be judged as God always does with Nations when they become very wicked.  I worry about the extreme wickedness that surrounds us even in our own Nation. Out of these thoughts, I wrote this song:

JEREMIAH WAS CALLED BY GOD, AS A PROPHET LONG AGO,
SENT TO WARN THE JEWISH NATIONS OF IMPENDING DOOM AND WOE!!
BUT ZEDEKIAH WOULDN’T LISTEN AND THE PEOPLE CONTINUED THEIR EVIL WAYS, UNTIL BABYLON FELL UPON THEM AND TOOK THEM AS CAPTIVES ALL THEIR DAYS.

KING ZEDEKIAH TRIED TO FLEE BUT ALONG WITH HIS MEN WAS OVERCOME,
FORCED TO WATCH HIS SONS AND OFFICIALS AS THEY WERE KILLED ONE BY ONE, THEN THEY BOUND THE KING WITH BRONZE SHACKLES AND COMMENCED TO PUT OUT HIS EYES, AFTER BEING THROWN INTO A DUNGEON, IN SORROW HE BEGAN TO REALIZE…

CHORUS

I SHOULD HAVE LISTENED TO JEREMIAH,
BUT NOW FOR ME, IT’S TOO LATE,
IF ONLY WE HAD LISTENED TO JEREMIAH,
WE WOULDN’T HAVE SUFFERED THIS TERRIBLE FATE!!
repeat

2nd verse

WE SHOULD LEARN FROM HISTORY WHAT AMERICA FACES TODAY,
JEREMIAH CALLS OUT FOR US ALSO TO CHANGE OUR WAYS!!
WILL WE BE LIKE KING ZEDEKIAH AND CONTINUE IN WILLFUL SIN?
UNTIL GOD PUNISHES US THE SAME AS ZEDEKIAH FROM OUR ENEMIES WITHOUT OR WITHIN.

I STILL HEAR JEREMIAH CRYING OUT EVEN NOW IN OUR OWN DAYS,
TO REPENT AGAINST THIS GROWING EVIL AND TO QUICKLY CHANGE OUR WAYS!! LET US LISTEN TO JEREMIAH AND PRAY HUMBLY THAT IT’S NOT TOO LATE, SO GOD WILL NOT BRING JUDGEMENT ALSO THAT WOULD BRING A TERRIBLE FATE!!

CHORUS

WE MUST LISTEN TO JEREMIAH,
MUST REPENT BEFORE IT’S TOO LATE,
WE MUST LISTEN TO JEREMIAH ,
SO WE WON’T SUFFER THE SAME TERRIBLE FATE!!

GOD’S WARNINGS

By Judy Lee Jenkins
Good_vs_Evil_1

In Isaiah 5:20-21, we will read the following:

“WOE TO THOSE WHO CALL EVIL GOOD,
AND GOOD EVIL,
WHO PUT DARKNESS FOR LIGHT,
AND LIGHT FOR DARKNESS,
WHO PUT BITER FOR SWEET,
AND SWEET FOR BITTER.

WOE TO THOSE WHO ARE WISE IN THEIR OWN EYES,
AND CLEVER IN THEIR OWN SIGHT.”

Wow!!  Does this ever speak to me because aren’t we doing just that today?!!  Even though this was written to the Jewish Nation long ago even before Christ, sin never changes.  It just repeats itself down through the centuries!!  However, I feel that there was a time we did have a lot of goodness in this Nation but now we are slipping deep into the abyss and reversing good and evil.  That which was evil when I was growing up now is labeled good and that which was good years ago, is now labeled evil!!

Who are we to listen to?  Who are we to believe?  How about God!!  Isn’t God the one who makes all the rules and tells you the difference of what HE considers to be good and what HE considers to be evil?  Our culture now is dismissing God and what HE declares to be true in HIS word and man is now becoming the one to determine good vs. evil.  Without God, everything now is upside down and people walk around confused and don’t even know what is right or wrong anymore.

The Bible is our guide and road map.  If only we would read it and observe it’s truths.  They are truths because God spoke it and said. “I am the way, the TRUTH, and the life.”  Pondering on this serious scripture, I wrote the following song:

GOD GAVE MANY WARNINGS TO ISRAEL LONG AGO,
AND WITH EVERY WARNING, HE PRONOUNCED EACH WITH A WOE,
THESE WARNINGS ARE IMPORTANT AND PERTAIN TO US TODAY,
AND IF WE HONOR GOD, HIS COUNCIL WE’LL OBEY.

HIS WORD  WRITTEN IN THE HEAVENS HAS FOREVER STOOD,
AGAINST CALLING GOOD EVIL AND CALLING EVIL GOOD.
WE’RE NOT TO PUT LIGHT FOR DARKNESS OR DARKNESS TO BE LIGHT,
THE DAY THAT RISES WITH THE SUN CANNOT BE CALLED THE NIGHT.
THE DAY CANNOT BE CALLED THE NIGHT,
THE DAY CANNOT BE CALLED THE NIGHT,
WHEN THERE IS LIGHT.

CHORUS

LET’S NOT CALL GOOD EVIL OR CALL EVIL GOOD,
BUT HEED GOD’S WARNINGS AS WE KNOW THAT WE SHOULD,
LET’S NOT CALL LIGHT DARKNESS, OR CALL DARKNESS LIGHT,
WHEN GOD’S WORD SAYS IT’S WRONG, THEN WE KNOW IT ISN’T RIGHT!!

WOE TO US WHO THINK WE ARE CLEVER AND WISE IN OUR OWN EYES,
THAT WE KNOW MORE THAN GOD, THIS HE DOES DESPISE!!
SUCH FOOLISH THOUGHTS AND NOTIONS, WE SHOULD STOP AND SHUN,
OR HIS ANGER WILL BURN AGAINST US AND JUDGEMENT SURE TO COME!!

2nd Verse

ALWAYS BITTER ARE THE LEMONS, ALWAYS SWEET ARE FIGS AND DATES,
TO CALL BITTER AS SWEET ARE ALSO THINGS GOD HATES,
CONFUSION RESULTS WHEN WE CALL THINGS WHAT THEY ARE NOT,
AND GOES AGAINST GOD’S WORD AND THE THINGS THAT JESUS TAUGHT.

LET’S NOT CHALLENGE GOD THAT WE ARE WISER THAN HE,
THE ONE WHO CREATED EVERYTHING AS FAR AS WE CAN SEE!!
IF WE REALIZED HIS POWER AND GREATNESS, WE’D QUICKLY CHANGE OUR TONE, AND SURRENDER ALL WE HAVE FOR HIM AND HUMBLY BOW BEFORE HIS THRONE, HUMBLY BOW BEFORE HIS THRONE WE WOULD, HUMBLY BOW BEFORE HIS THRONE AND PRAISE GOD.

CHORUS

FOUR THINGS TO HEAL AMERICA

By Judy Jenkins

God_Bless_America

  Our country is in trouble in so many ways, financially, morally, and corruption and crime is becoming more and more rampant.  America has always had problems but I am now living at a time where I have never seem so much confusion and chaos!!  My heart is breaking for this country that I love so much!!  I wish more than anything that we could have peace and harmony once again in this beautiful land.  My opinion is that it will never happen unless the people return to God. Only God can solve the mess we are in.  The Lord made it clear in HIS word that if we love and serve HIM, HE will be our protector and bless our land.  Now God has been kicked out of our country and it is just growing worse every day.  I wish that the people of America realized why these bad things are happening to us.  However, I never give up hope.  I pray for our country to return to God!!

There is a beautiful scripture in the Old Testament given to the people of Israel.  It is found in 2 Chronicles 7:14 and says:  “IF MY PEOPLE WHO ARE CALLED BY MY NAME WILL HUMBLE THEMSELVES AND PRAY AND SEEK MY FACE AND TURN FROM THEIR WICKED WAYS, THEN WILL I HEAR FROM HEAVEN AND WILL FORGIVE THEIR SIN AND WILL HEAL THEIR LAND.”  I absolutely love this scripture!!  Though God revealed this to the Jewish Nation, I believe it applies as well to those who seek God and want to serve HIM.  Because of my concern for America, I wrote the following song as a plead to us all to do 4 things this prayer requires.  1. Humble ourselves, 2. Pray, 3. Repent and 4. Seek after God.  If we could just follow and do those 4 things, I know America would be back on track and a prosperous and blessed Nation again!!

OUR COUNTRY IS ROTTING FROM DEEP CORRUPTION WITHIN,
HEALING IS NEEDED FROM THE MAGGOTS OF SIN.
THE BUZZARDS ARE CIRCLING ABIDING THEIR TIME,
AS THEY WAIT FOR AMERICA’S FALL AND DECLINE!!

BUT GOD GAVE US A PROMISE IN HIS HOLY WORD,
SOMETHING IMPORTANT FOR US TO OBSERVE,
LIKE ISRAEL HE WILL HEAL OUR LAND TOO,WITH 4 SPECIFIC THINGS THAT WE MUST DO.

CHORUS

4 THINGS, 4 THINGS, YOU TOLD US LORD TO DO,
4 THINGS, 4 THINGS TO SHOW WE LOVE YOU,
4 THINGS 4, THINGS THAT YOU COMMAND,
4 THINGS, 4 THINGS TO HEAL OUR LAND.

LORD YOU TOLD US TO BE HUMBLE,
TO FALL ON OUR KNEES AND PRAY,
CONFESS OUR SINS, FROM THEM TURN AWAY,
SEEK YOUR FACE, FOLLOW AS YOU COMMAND,
THEN AS YOU PROMISED, YOU WILL HEAL OUR LAND.

NEXT VERSE

OH LORD HEAL OUR LAND, PLEASE HEAL OUR LAND,
DON’T REMOVE YOUR LOVING HAND.
DON’T GIVE US OVER TO OUR SINFUL WAYS,
LET US LOOK FORWARD TO JOYFUL DAYS!!

CHORUS

LET’S MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN

By Judy Lee Jenkins
America


America is in trouble and it is so obvious that we are headed for destruction if we don’t turn this ship around. It is called self implosion!! We can’t continue to thumb our noses at God and stay the successful nation that we have been. We once were known for being the Beacon of Light to other nations. However, now we are falling into an abyss and our beacon of light is fading away!! I also truly believe that God puts a hedge of protection around nations and peoples who follow HIM and keep HIS word. But when we believe HE is no longer valid or a part of our lives, God removes that hedge of protection!! Is that what we want?!! I would think not!! I love the scripture from 2 Chronicles 7:14 given to the Nation of Israel but applicable to us also that read: :”IF MY PEOPLE WHO ARE CALLED BY MY NAME WILL HUMBLE THEMSELVES AND PRAY AND SEEK MY FACE AND TURN FROM THEIR WICKED WAYS, THEN I WILL HEAR FROM HEAVEN AND WILL FORGIVE THEIR SIN AND WILL HEAL THEIR LAND.” This scripture give us 4 things that we need to do, 1. Be humble, 2. Pray, 3. Seek God, 4. Repent and then God says HE will heal our land. In other words, HE will make us a whole nation again and the beacon of light we once were. Our hedge of protection will be put back up and HE will protect us from other nations and from within.

Our country’s birthday is nearly here again. When we celebrate with fireworks, may we also make a commitment that we as one person will try to make America a GREAT country again by helping to make her a GOOD country again. A statement was once said, “AMERICA IS GREAT BECAUSE SHE IS GOOD BUT IF SHE CEASES TO BE GOOD, SHE CEASES TO BE GREAT.” Donald Trump’s slogan, ‘LET’S MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN,” will never happen unless America is good again and returns to God. That is indeed my hope and prayer. This upbeat song came from those thoughts.

AMERICA CAN’T CONTINUE THE WAY WE ARE,
DEEP INTO AN ABYSS WE’RE FALLING VERY FAR,
SELF DESTRUCTION IS COMING AND SOON WILL BE OUR FATE,
UNLESS WE CHANGE DIRECTION BEFORE IT IS TOO LATE!

LET’S MAKE OUR COUNTRY GREAT AGAIN,
RETURN TO WHAT MADE IT GREAT BACK THEN!!
WE DIDN’T COMPROMISE OUR VALUES JUST TO GET ALONG,
AND WE KNEW THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN RIGHT AND WRONG!!

LET’S MAKE OUR COUNTRY GREAT AGAIN,
LET COMMON SENSE REIGN AS IT DID BACK THEN!!
WITH MINDS THAT ONCE WERE STRONG AND VERY SOUND,
‘CAUSE IN GOD’S WORD WE WERE FIRMLY GROUND!!

LET’S MAKE OUR COUNTRY GREAT AGAIN,
HONOR OUR VETERANS AND FREEDOM FIGHTING MEN,
RESPECT OUR FLAG, THE BIBLE AND GOD’S HOLY RULES,
AND ALLOW PRAYER BACK INTO OUR SCHOOLS!!

LET’S MAKE OUR COUNTRY GREAT AGAIN,
AND LET WOMEN BE WOMEN AND MEN BE MEN,
RESTORE OUR CONSTITUTION AND FREEDOMS LOST WITHIN,
LET’ MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN!!!! (repeat)

Excerpt from MY COUNTRY TIS OF THEE,
repeat last stanza

THE HEART OF THE WISE

By Judy Lee Jenkins
Sheep-Goats

  In these politically correct times, it is not popular to lean to the right!!  Infact it is just the opposite.  We are expected to all lean to the left!!  This is what happens when the Bible is no longer relevant in our lives.  Yet it is interesting what the wisest of all men recorded about this.  He said the following in the Book of Ecclesiastes:10:2, “THE HEART OF THE WISE INCLINES TO THE RIGHT BUT THE HEART OF THE FOOL TO THE LEFT.”  He also wrote the Book of Proverbs which is filled with wonderful and great words of wisdom!!  This wisdom came to him as a gift from God.  He was King Solomon, and became King after the reign of his father, David.

     It is also interesting what Jesus had to say about the right and the left.  He said in Matthew:25:31 that when he would return, that all the nations would be gathered before him and he would separate the people.  On the right he would put his sheep but on his left, he would put the goats.  The ones on the right are those who followed him, but the ones on the left are those who rejected him.  Those who followed him are invited to the marriage supper of the lamb (Rev. 19:9) but those who reject him are cast out!!  How important is it to be popular with the world and lean to the left if we lose our very souls?!!   Pondering on those words out of our Bible, I wrote and composed the following song:

A GREAT HARVEST IS COMING, JESUS MADE IT VERY CLEAR,
A WEEDING OUT OF ALL NATIONS, WHEN HE RETURNS HERE.
JESUS WILL PUT HIS SHEEP ON HIS RIGHT, THOSE WHO LOVED AND FOLLOWED HIM,
BUT TO HIS LEFT, HE’LL PLACE THE GOATS, THOSE WHO DELIGHTED IN ALL SIN,
AND REJECTED HIM!!

AFTER THE SEPARATION, JUDGEMENT FOR ALL NOW TAKES PLACE,
THOSE ON JESUS LEFT ARE CAST AWAY WITH SHAME AND DISGRACE.
BUT THOSE ON HIS RIGHT ARE SO VERY BLESSED WITH AN INVITATION TO ATTEND,
THE MARRIAGE SUPPER OF THE LAMB AND WITH JESUS TO HEAVEN ASCEND.

CHORUS

THE HEART OF THE WISE INCLINES TO THE RIGHT,
BUT THE HEART OF THE FOOL TO THE LEFT,
DON’T BE A FOOL AND GIVE SATAN THE TOOL,
TO DEVOUR YOU WITH DESTRUCTION AND THEFT!!  (repeat verse)

NEXT VERSE

A WONDROUS CELEBRATION LIKE NOTHING BEFORE,
WHEN THE BRIDE MAKES HERSELF READY FOR HER GROOM TO ADORE.
DRESSED IN FINE LINEN, CLEAN, PURE AND WHITE,
THE BRIDE WITHOUT SPOT OR WRINKLE, PRESENTABLE IN GOD’S HOLY SIGHT.

CHORUS

THE HEART OF THE WISE INCLINES TO THE RIGHT,
BUT THE HEART OF A FOOL TO THE LEFT,
BE WISE, BE WISE AND STAY TO THE RIGHT
AND FOREVER DWELL IN GOD’S HOLY LIGHT.

THE GROOM IS OUR LORD,
AND THE CHURCH IS HIS BRIDE,
WITH HIM FOREVER, THE SAINTS WILL ABIDE.
SING HALLELUJAH AND LIFT UP YOUR VOICE
CLEANSED BY THE LAMB, WE CAN ALL REJOICE.
SING HALLELUJAH AND LIFT UP YOUR VOICE,
CLEANSED BY THE LAMB WE CAN ALL REJOICE-repeat.

CHORUS

THE HEART OF THE WISE INCLINES TO THE RIGHT,
BUT THE HEART OF A FOOL TO THE LEFT,
BE WISE, BE WISE AND STAY TO THE RIGHT
AND FOREVER DWELL IN GOD’S HOLY LIGHT!!

JESUS IS MY RIGHTEOUSNESS 2

By Judy Lee Jenkins
Natural_Fountain

One of my favorite scriptures is found in 2 Corinthians 5:21 and it reads as follows in the King James version: “FOR HE HATH MADE HIM TO BE SIN FOR US, WHO KNEW NO SIN; THAT WE MIGHT BE MADE THE RIGHTEOUSNESS OF GOD IN HIM.”  I absolutely love this scripture and am so thankful for what it means to me!!  Jesus who was perfect traded his perfection for my imperfection!!  I picture myself wearing filthy rags, my head hung in shame as I even try to look at my glorious beautiful Savior.  However, because of his tremendous love for me (putting it on  a personal level) he took my filthy rags off and put them on himself as he was putting his  beautiful spotless white robes on me.  It was an exchange made in my behalf when he took my sins on himself that day he hung in agony on the cross.  And of course, he also did the same for everyone who chooses to come to him.  Pondering on that scripture I wrote the following song a number of years ago but decided to make another version of it.  The words are as follows:

JESUS IS MY RIGHTEOUSNESS,
I HAVE NONE OF MY OWN.
ALL MY SINS WERE LAID ON HIM,
ONLY HIS DEATH COULD ATONE.

HE WHO KNEW KNOW SIN.
BECAME SIN FOR ME.
SO I COULD BE MADE RIGHTEOUS
IN HIM FOR ETERNITY. ( 2ND CORINTHINANS 5:21)

CHORUS

I DRANK FROM HIS FOUNTAIN OF LIVING WATER.
I’LL NEVER THIRST AGAIN!!
IT FLOWS FOREVER, COOL AND REFRESHING,
HIS TRUTH WILL NEVER END!!

VERSE 2

JESUS IS MY RIGHTEOUSNESS,
I’M CORRUPT AS I CAN BE.
BUT HE CANCELLED MY SIN DEBT AND FOREVER
SET ME FREE!!

HE EXCHANGED HIS GOODNESS FOR MY SINS,
THE MOMENT I FIRST BELIEVED,
AND GAVE TO ME ETERNAL LIFE,
HIS GIFT I HAVE RECIEVED.

CHORUS

WHEN I DRANK FROM HIS FOUNTAIN
OF LIVING WATER,
I’LL NEVER THIRST AGAIN!!
IT FLOWS FOREVER, COOL AND REFRESHING,
HIS TRUTH WILL NEVER END!!

CLOSING

SO LORD PLEASE LIVE YOUR LIFE THROUGH ME,
AND GIVE ME POWER AND MIGHT,
TO LIVE A GODLY RIGHTEOUS LIFE
AND FOLLOW IN YOUR HOLY LIGHT.

CHORUS

AS I DRINK FROM YOUR FOUNTAIN
OF LIVING WATER,
TO NEVER THIRST AGAIN!!
IT FLOWS FOREVER, COOL AND REFRESHING,
YOUR TRUTH WILL NEVER END, NEVER END, NEVER END!!!!

Judy Lee’s Mama Killdeer Video

Since Mother’s Day will soon be here, I wanted to repost a song I wrote two years ago in the early spring about a Mama Killdeer bird. I ran across her accidentally while working in my flower beds and the entire story in written in my song. I observed her from the very beginning when she sat on her nest until the end when her little ones hatched.

Who would ever think that her little ones would actually come out on Mother’s Day but they did!! I remember how special that event was when she paraded her little chicks under my window!! How cute they were, like cotton balls on long tooth picks!! That event added much anticipation and joy to my life, so much that I made it into a song. Here is a reposting of that event.

LET THE CHILDREN COME

By Judy Lee Jenkins
Christ_with_children

How can we doubt how precious little children are to God when we read the scriptures?  Mother’s Day is nearly here when we honor mothers who devote their lives to the care and upbringing of their little children.  I love the story told in the gospels of the time when Jesus was about teaching the people and some of the parents brought their little ones to Jesus to be blessed.

Some of the disciples were annoyed with their presence and actually rebuked the parents for bothering Jesus with something they thought was so unimportant.  However, Jesus was displeased with their attitude.  Instead of turning the children away, HE told them to bring their little ones close to HIM.  Jesus then held them tenderly in HIS arms and blessed them.

Imagine to be a little child in the arms of Jesus!!  Jesus also took the opportunity to teach a very great lesson to HIS disciples.  HE no doubt pointed to one of the little children on HIS lap when HE said this, “SUFFER THE LITTLE CHILDREN TO COME UNTO ME, AND FORBID THEM NOT; FOR OF SUCH IS THE KINGDOM OF GOD.  VERILY I SAY UNTO YOU, WHOSOEVER SHALL NOT RECEIVE THE KINGDOM OF GOD AS A  LITTLE CHILD, HE SHALL NOT ENTER THEREIN.”

Contemplating on this beautiful scripture about Jesus and the children, I also thought of my own children and grandchildren and how much Jesus loves them.  And I also have the assurance that my little Lisa Ann who lived but 3 short hours on earth has been in HIS loving arms waiting to see her mama someday.

Pondering this scene, I wrote and composed the following song:

SOME PEOPLE BROUGHT THEIR CHILDREN
TO JESUS ONE DAY,
MANY OF HIS DISCIPLES FELT THAT
THEY WERE IN THE WAY!!
SO THEY REBUKED THE PARENTS.
FOR BRINGING THEM NEAR,
BUT LOVINGLY JESUS SAID,

“COME, COME, COME BRING YOUR LITTLE ONES HERE.

SUFFER LITTLE CHILDREN TO COME UNTO ME,
LET THEM COME CLOSE AND SIT UPON MY KNEE.
THEN TENDERLY HE HELD THEM
AND BLESSED THEM ONE BY ONE,
THE DISCIPLES KNEW THEN THAT
THE CHILDREN SHOULD COME,
LET THE CHILDREN  COME,

TO JESUS ARMS, LET THE LITTLE ONES COME. (repeat)

CHORUS

PRECIOUS ARE LITTLE CHILDREN IN GOD’S HOLY SIGHT,
WITHIN HIS LOVING CARE, HE HOLDS EACH ONE TIGHT,
ON THE WINGS OF HIS ANGELS, AS A GIFT THEY ALL COME,
PRECIOUS TO GOD, ARE THESE LITTLE ONES.

OH SO PRECIOUS, OH SO PRECIOUS TO GOD ARE THESE LITTLE ONES!!

FORBID NOT THE CHILDREN, LET THEM COME WITH EASE,
FOR HEAVEN BELONGS TO SUCH AS THESE,
NO ONE CAN ENTER HEAVEN OR THE KINGDOM ACHIEVE,
UNLESS LIKE A CHILD YOU COME TO ME TO RECEIVE,
COME TO ME
COME TO ME
LIKE A CHILD TO RECEIVE,

COME TO ME  (repeat)

CHORUS
