Only One

I was encouraged today to have inspiration for a new poem. 

                    Only One

There’s only one shelter and only one rest,
There’s only one place I can go when oppressed.
I’ve tried other options and find they are vain,
But in the Lord Jesus there’s peace and great gain.

There’s only one refuge, one fortress, one tower;
One sure place of safety in earth’s present hour.
There’s only one hiding place; only one rock
That offers salvation to all who will knock.

In all of the lists of the noble and brave
There’s no other name that is able to save.
The only deliverer is Jesus, God’s Son,
For He and the Father and Spirit are One.

An equal to God in His power and grace,
Christ died for the sins of the whole human race.
He’s faithful, unmoving, unchanging, and just.
In Him, and Him only, I dare put my trust.

Psalm 18:2; Acts 4:12; Psalm 62

Favorite Verses

My friend Judith at WholeHeartedHome posted some of her favorite Bible verses, and it inclines me to do the same. I'm choosing verses that have been favorites since I was a very young Christian which have been my food through the years. There are many other good ones, but these stand out:

1. Psalm 34:5  They looked unto him, and were lightened: and their faces were not ashamed. 

2. Galatians 1:10b  If I yet pleased men, I should not be the servant of Christ. 

3. Philippians 4:6  Be careful for nothing; but in every thing by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God.
