SEASONS

SEASONS

The seasons come upon us
Each one seems to be unique
In each one the weather changes
Day by day and week by week

The first one that we see is Spring
And the pleasantness of what it brings
The grass turns green and flowers bloom
This is the time when the robin sings

Then comes Summer and the heat
A great time for swimming in the pool
If the air conditioning breaks go buy a fan
There's more than one way to keep cool

Next comes the season of Autumn
It is also called fall if you please
When all the leaves get raked into piles
And scatter all over at the slightest breeze

The last one that comes is the Winter
And depending on where you reside
It's either too hot or much too cold but
The temperature is much better inside

The seasons are a never ending cycle
Perhaps you may sit and ponder why
Then another month has come and gone
And another year has gone passing by

THANKSGIVING

THANKSGIVING

We’ll be spending our Thanksgiving
By driving over to Grandma’s house
Not a soul will go hungry
Not even a little mouse

She started preparing
On the night before
If there was anything missing
She sent Grandpa to the store

Everything must be perfect
On this day you see
For it isn’t very often
That we gather as a family

After a long trip we arrive there
The first thing we do is turn on the TV
To watch the Thanksgiving Day Parade
There are marching bands and floats to see

Before we begin eating
We hold hands and pray
Thank you Lord for the blessings
That you have given us this day

And we also pray for a special blessing for
The men and women who protect our liberty
Please God keep them safe from harm
They understand that freedom isn’t free

Then Grandpa says let’s eat I’m starving
The first thing on the menu is soup in a cup
In the background we listen to Holiday music
This always helps us to keep our spirits up

Uncle Charlie carves the turkey and
Asks if we want dark meat or white
And even with this many people
There will be plenty to take home tonight

Pass the gravy and the rolls please
The peas and sweet potatoes too
The cornbread stuffing is delicious
And may I have some apple cidar too

When we finish the main course
The women will help to put things away
While the men go and watch a football game
Actually there are several to watch on TV today

Once everything else has been cleaned up
Grandma serves coffee and pumpkin pie
All of a sudden it feels like we’re stuffed
For some strange reason we wonder why

Before we head back to our homes
There are still two things to be done
First we help set up the Christmas Tree
Then we join hands and thank the Holy One

Thank you Lord for the blessings of this special day
We ask for traveling mercies and Your Grace again
May all of our hearts be filled with Your goodness
And to this prayer all of Your children say AMEN

GOING HOME

GOING HOME

The Lord God above is my shepherd
He provides me with all that I need
Yet I do get impatient knowing it's wrong
For all that God does is only at His speed

Forgive me L-rd for the sin of impatience
I will serve and obey whenever You call
My life would be barren without knowing You
From Your Grace and Mercy I pray not to fall

My pen will glorify Messiah and tell about
How His blood paid for my transgressions
Through Yeshua I have eternal life in heaven with
An abundant storehouse of Spiritual possessions

When that glorious day does come to pass
And I am standing before Him face to face
I will bow before Him and express my gratitude
For allowing me to dwell in a much better place

THE NUMBER ONE PRIORY

THE NUMBER ONE PRIORY


God does works in many different ways
That you and I will never understand
But we know Him through the Holy Spirit and
We know that our future has been pre-planned

We also know that God's Son paid the ultimate price
So as Believers in Messiah our sins are washed away
It doesn't mean that we don't have to ask forgiveness
For sins that we commit or are not aware of each day

Don't judge others because we too will be judged
Avoid offensive things that we know are wrong
Our rabbi has minister on this so many many times
By act accordingly our faith will always stay strong

Stop making excuses for not coming to Shabbat services
Like it's too far or my Kids need to be driven to a game
We know that if we're too busy for God we're just too busy
When we think about it these excuses are really very lame

Serving God always should be
Our very first one priority
He controls every facet of our lives because
His Word is always will be the final authority

A good example about what I mean
Is at your daughter's ballet practice session
She takes a spill and is unable to dance at her recital
Don't you think God is trying to teach you a lesson

If your priorities had been in the right order
The Lord would surely have let you know
Her recital would have been a huge success 
Her performance the highlight of the show`

Or perhaps your son allowed the winning to score
I'm pretty sure that both of you would be very sad
If you had lined yourself up with the word of G-d
Instead his winning hit would have made you glad

By now I hope that I have gotten my point across
The order of life's priority is G-d family then you
Ask His forgiveness and He will see that you know
As a believer you know that it's the right thing to do

Back Home

I've been out of town visiting relatives off and on the past month.  I apologize for not posting any poems during that time.

Will try to post a poem weekly, mainly on Sunday.

Please continue to enjoy poems written by my husband, Joel Steinhauer, who went to be with the Lord last Thanksgiving.

GET YOUR SPIRITUAL LIFE BACK AMERICA

GET YOUR SPIRITUAL LIFE BACK AMERICA
If you watch TV for any length of time
You’ll see some plagiarism in the title
But it came from God’s Holy Spirit
To those sitting around being idle

I’m sure that this applies to much of the world
But Americans are the Lord’s Lat Stronghold
The Lord will bring the end time upon us sooner if
These ungodly situations should continue to unfold

Can I make you fathom this more clearly
God loves every person that He Created
It’s all the sinful things in your lifetime
That God our Father has always hated

The world we live in is controlled by satan but
He knows that the Lord is watching him as well
That’s why God wants you to walk in His Ways
The last place that He wants you to go is to hell

Father God wants you to get to know him better
Or even if you never knew the Lord before
That’s why I got this particular assignment
It’s just for you that He’s opening up the door

Get to know God by reading the complete bible
In the Book of Prophets it all leads to God’s Son
It takes you on an amazing journey that clearly shows
That messiah is a part of the Trilogy of the Holy One

The bible has all of the answers to any question that
You’ll ask throughout your entire life on earth
If you’re unable to find it just ask a Spiritual Leader
He will show you just how much God’s Word is worth

Lastly for a one way ticket to get into God’s kingdom
Confess your sins and accept the Lord as our Salvation
You’ll become a new creation that’s been born again 
I pray that God fills your life with joy and jubilation

Reunited Again

Reunited Again


That special time of the year has come again
When friends and classmates are reuniting
Each year we see new faces and old friends
At our age that truly has to be very exciting

Be sure to smile and say cheese for the camera
We don't want to ask, "Who was that old coot?"
When we look back at all of the pictures we took
We can say, "They really were one heck of a hoot!"

What about some who were here last year
It's something that each of us has thought of
Some couldn't come or are now with the L-rd
But we still have past memories of brotherly love

Only God knows how much time we have left
This is why I urge those that can to keep in touch
Fond memories of friendships may fade in time
But while we still have them mean so very much

HOW TO GET THERE FROM HERE

HOW TO GET THERE FROM HERE

Are you successful in the world we live
Or are you struggling or just getting by
Either way you need to take a step back and
Check your relationship with God Most High

If you're living day to day but
Your faith in Messiah is strong
This may be exactly where you need to be
And where the Lord wanted you all along

You know the riches of this world are only temporary 
Plant yourself solidly on the rock of o-d here on earth
The reward in heaven will be beyond your expectation
There is no way to measure what it is all truly worth

What about those people whose careers have been successful
Do they know the Lord and do they tithe one tenth of their pay
If not when their final judgement day comes from Messiah Yeshua
Heaven's gates will not open and their only recourse is the other way

Take heart because no matter what your station in life
It isn't too late to profess Yeshua as the King of Kings 
Who gave His life to absolve the sins of those that believes in him and
Then heaven's gates will open for you have earned your Angel wings

I ASKED GOD


 I asked God to take away my pain.  God said, No
- It is not for me to take away, but for you to give it up.
 *******
 I asked God to make my handicapped child whole.
God said, No - Her spirit was whole, her body was only temporary.
 ******
 I asked God to grant me patience.
God said, No
- Patience is a by-product of tribulations; it isn't  granted, it is earned.
******
 I asked God to give me happiness.
God said, No - I give you blessings.  Happiness is up to  you.
 ******
 I asked God to spare me pain. God said, No
 Suffering draws you apart from worldly cares
and brings you closer to me.
 ******
I asked God to make my spirit grow. God said, No
- You must grow on your own,
but I will prune you to make you fruitful.
 ******
 I asked for all things that I might enjoy life. God said,  No
- I will give you life so that you may enjoy all things.

 I ask God to help me LOVE others,
as much as he loves me.

God said...
Ahhhh, finally you have the idea.

LIFE’S CLOCK

LIFE’S CLOCK


The clock of life is wound but once
And no man has the power
To tell just where the hands will stop
At late or early hour
To lose one’s wealth is sad indeed
To lose one’s health is more
To lose one’s soul is such a loss
As no man can restore
The present only is our own
Life Love Toil with a will
Place no faith in tomorrow-for
The clock may then be still.

ATTITUDE IS EVERYTHING

ATTITUDE IS EVERYTHING

Do you know that you have an attitude
You might not realize it but we all do
Some may have attitudes of gratitude and
Others haughtiness which of these are you

If you are grateful you thank God every day
The haughty person isn’t nice to anyone at all
The grateful person looms large in God’s Eyes
If haughty He sees them as smaller than small

God always blesses those who show gratitude but
If a haughty person needs help He may look away
However that may not always be the case though
For God sees there is hope in some that may stray

This is where God begins to work His miracles
Putting someone with a sweet spirit in their lives
More flies are caught with honey than vinegar
And their attitude is changed so that it thrives

It isn’t any different in so many other aspects of life
It pits good versus evil which is God versus the devil
No matter how hard he may try to be God he can’t because
God is omnipotent so satan will never achieve the same level

THE LAMB OF GOD

THE LAMB OF GOD

I saw a picture in the paper of
Two soldier in the war against Sadam
In the upper left hand corner
Facing opposite was a lamb

Now you can view this photo
Anyway that you choose
As for me I see it is a sign
Of a war that we won't lose

I see the lamb as the Lamb of God
Who is protecting them from the rear
They may not see him as they face the front
But I think they know that they need not fear

God walks with them all the way
And yet many of them will fall
And though you may grieve for those who die
Understand that they have gotten a higher call

Pray to God for the troops safe return
To this great land where freedom rings
And also pray in the Spirit for our enemies
To be saved and witness to the King of Kings

MOTHER

MOTHER

How many people can you think of
Who have the ability to multi-task
The first to comes to mind is your mother
Who had an answer for anything you’d ask

She was a cook a maid a seamstress
As well as a nurse and chauffer too
She gave you spiritual guidance
And no matter what was there for you

She’s never looked for any credit
Nor has she ever asked for praise
In all the years you’ve known her
She’s never even asked for a raise

So on this day let’s give her homage
Call her visit her send her flowers
Show her how much you appreciate
What came naturally for so many hours

And if she’s gone to see the Lord
Remember her ever time you pray
Because without her patience love and guidance
You wouldn’t be the person that you are today

GOD'S PURPOSE DRIVEN CALLING

GOD'S PURPOSE DRIVEN CALLING

On Sunday our Rebbetzin will be driving
Laps around Atlanta's Motor Speedway
Although they know she's in God's Hands
Her family still feels that they need to pray

She's really not a speed freak who is
Looking for accolades or applause
But God has called her to do this
For a very noble and worthy cause

By driving very fast and doing many laps around the track
She's raising money for needy believers in the Holy Land
It's a huge step of faith to help to carry out
All of the good things that God has planned

Other Spiritual Leaders in the Messianic Movement
Have joined her and will be drive on the track as well
How much money will be raised by this event
Is something that only G-\od and time will tell

This event is just a small part of His purpose for them
So I urge you to give them moral and financial support
For as long as God is their co-pilot
They will never come up short

THE PASSOVER LAMB

THE PASSOVER LAMB


You all know the story about when Moses
Told Egypt's pharaoh to let God's People go
And because he had a very hardened heart
Pharaoh's responded with a resounding no

So God brought many plagues upon Egypt but
Pharaoh would not yield until the very last one
After ordering all of the Jewish first born slain
God did the exact same thing to pharaoh's son

Again after saying, "go" he changed his mind
And commanded his army to kill all that flee
God parted the water and they went safely across but
Pharaoh's army was swallowed up by the raging sea

God commanded the Jew to observe Passover each year
Years later Yeshua came so that we could know Salvation
And at a Passover seder which was to be his very last meal
This is what the Lord said to His disciples in conversation

Eat of this matzo for it is My Body that will be broken
Drink of this wine for symbolizes the blood I will shed
My Life will be forfeit so that my Father forgives all sin
Both turbulence and joy will you see in the years ahead

This is the very reason that we celebrate communion
Remembering the Lamb of God and the fate He met
And why all believers tell of that fateful day
During Passover so that we will never forget

The day is coming when the Lord will return to earth
I believe that we are a part of this end time generation
Those who are lifted up and pass through Heaven's gates
Have been bestowed with the Lord God's Eternal Salvation

SHOW ME

SHOW ME

Show me someone that obeys God's Laws
That person is walking in God's Path
Show me a person who scoffs at them
That person will surely see God's Wrath

Show me someone who believes in Yeshua
That person is guaranteed eternal life
Show me someone who does not believe
That person will only know infernal strife

Show me a person who understands that
The only way to the Father is through His Son
Show me a person who thinks it's by works
I'll prove that their chances are zero to none

Lord when You know that the time is right
Remove the blinders from their eyes
On the day that they see God's Light
They'll surely be in for a big surprise

Let them see that Yeshua is the only one that
Fulfilled all of the Old Testament Prophesies
Foretelling of the coming of the Jewish Messiah
And that only the Lord's Truth can set us all free

Show me that person who trusts in God's Word
That person will be saved or completed
When the armor of God fully surrounds them
The sins of the devil will always be defeated

GROWING OLD

GROWING OLD

Each one of us has a unique story
Of what it’s like reaching old age
We go from youth to adulthood
Just like a book turn each page

Perhaps the title should be groaning old
Considering all my arthritis pain
I realize it’s necessary for the crops but
I don’t need advance notice of the rain

Here’s a riddle that I’m always quoting
People ask how I feel and how old I am
Well I feel with my hands so how old am I
They ask but do many of them give a damn

One perk I can say about growing old is that
Through it all I’ve really had a wonderful life
Five great daughters and a bunch of grandkids
And best of all a wonderful companion and wife

But the greatest part of growing old is still to come
At some time in the future I’ll get the Lord’s call
One day I’ll even be reunite with my loved ones
So yes I can say growing old is really worth it all

THE GRACE OF GOD'S SHALOM

THE  GRACE OF GOD'S SHALOM

When people see my Star of David
Surprisingly they ask, "Are you a Jew?"
My response to them is a resilient,
"Yes, and I am a Messianic too."

If a gentile reads both Testaments
They know exactly what I said
But too many believers do not know because
They 're taught that the Old Testament is dead

That's one reason for our Outreach Ministry to
Explain that without the Old there would be no new
Because Yeshua and His Disciples
Were born and worshiped as a Jew

On the other side of this disagreement
Is the Jew who tells me that I am not
It has been ingrained in them for centuries
Much like a brain washing or a sinister plot

If they truly had an open mind and read
every prophecy that would take place
Only Yeshua fulfilled every one of them
His blood brought hope for the human race

G-ohas given each of us a brain to think
He also gave us the free will to choose
If an unbeliever accepts Him as Messiah
It's a guarantee that they will not lose

For only then will they know the truth
That the Word of God has set them free
MessiahYeshua said, "There’s only way to our Father
In Heaven and that is by professing your belief in Me."

Jews and Gentiles Can worship the Lord together
For the God that they worship is one and the same
He is Father Son and the Holy Spirit
We Bless and Praise His Holy Name

DEALING WITH FRUSTRATION

DEALING WITH FRUSTRATION

Have you ever had one of those days
When everything that could goes wrong
It may just start with something small
Like constantly singing the same song

Then you go to get on the computer and
The server has changed things around
You keep trying to get into your email
But sadly it’s nowhere to be found

So you decide to take out the daily trash
The bag is overflowing and it’s very heavy
It tears and everything falls all over the place
And your clothes get covered with gravy

Finally when you get the mess cleaned up
You open the door and the dog escapes
It makes you wonder what else could go wrong
So far your day has been filled with sour grapes

That’s the time when you need to pause
You need to take one giant step back
If the rest of the day continues like this
It’s just liable to cause a heart attack

Instead of fretting about all that’s happened
There is something else that you can do
Just turn these frustrations over to the Lord
And then you can start the day anew

The Lord will bear your burden
By yourself you can’t fix the mess
Move on with the rest of the day
And God will take care of the rest

Stay calm and go about your business
It’s amazing how it will all work out
All because you let go and let God
That’s really what it’s all about

Miracles

Miracles

All miracles are gifts from God
After you go through trials and tribulation
But for many they do not happen because
They focus just on their pain and frustration

No one suffered more than our Messiah
Mocked and beaten and nailed to a tree
God used His Death to bring salvation
His Blood set the sins of mankind free

For those who suffered and then passed away
They saw no miracles just pain and strife
If they had accepted Yeshua as their Messiah
Their miracle would have been eternal life

Profess your belief in Yeshua right now
Tell Him you’re sorry for your transgressions
For the miracle of a pure heart and soul
Nothing is better than honest confessions

While you serve and tithe and minister
The Lord is doing something for you too
He's filling your storehouse beyond measure
More wealth in His Glory than you ever knew

GOD IS CALLING ARE YOU ANSWERING

GOD IS CALLING ARE YOU ANSWERING

I had a Spiritual message from God today and
He gave me these words that you see in rhyme
To tell you to start getting your act together
Because we are running out of time

To those who don't know God or the Son He sacrificed
He's saying to search your heart and take a look around
God is the creator and we are the creation
Where you stand He spoke that very ground

His Son Yeshua who is the promised Messiah
Will return one day and bring believers home
To the Kingdom of God's Righteousness
No longer will their obedient souls roam

Messiah's blood has cleansed all believers of sin
He's will come back but only God knows when
By professing Messiah Yeshua as your L-rd and Savior
His Blessings will pour out on you over and over again

If you think that you'll enter heaven by good works
You will wither at the pearly gates of gold
For God Words says that only through Messiah
Will the path that you take to Him unfold

THE TRUE LIVING GOD



 THE TRUE LIVING GOD


Are you in right standing with
The Lord God of all creation
Or do you worship other gods
And endure much frustration

You pray to them and don't get any answers
That's a no brainer because they're not around
The simple truth of the matter is that these
Other gods are all buried in the ground

These facts are completely indisputable
There is only one who died and rose again
He Lives within in you through the Holy Spirit
For those who believe whether women or men

What is the name of this Living God you might ask
His Name is Yeshua and He died to cleans you of sins
Through the sacrifice of His unblemished blood
He brought you salvation and a new life to begin

You will be born again in the Spirit
Not reborn from your mother's womb
Just believe in your heart that He is the Messiah
Otherwise your destiny is to face the devil's doom

If you accept Yeshua willingly
He promises you eternal life
The choice is as clear as common sense
G-d's Saving Grace over eternal strife
