Comfort ye, comfort ye My people, saith your God.
. . . that we through patience and comfort of the scriptures might have hope.
Whereby are given unto us exceeding great and precious promises.
2 Peter 1:4
As entrance into the Ark brought safety and protection from the world-wide flood for Noah and his family, so it was a picture of the True Ark, theLord Jesus Christ. He alone saves us from the wrath of God to come, if we place personal faith in Him as our Saviour.
As the Ark brought comfort and safety for Noah's family, so I want this site to be a place of rest and comfort for God's children.
May the poems herein bring you solace in your trials and a safe haven in the storms of life. And, if you do not yet know the Saviour, may these poems be the encouragement you need to, by faith, enter and find rest in the Lord Jesus Christ.
Come unto Me, all ye that labour
and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Matthew 11:28
In 1996, I put together a booklet of poetry entitled FAITH - Forever Abiding In This Hope. That book, and this website, is lovingly dedicated to Lori McCoy, my sister in life and sister in Christ. (You can see where the name of this website originally came from... but it is also a reference to the King James Bible as being the Real McCoy among Bible versions.) I thank God for a true Christian friend like her.
On May 16th, 1994, God gave me the greatest blessing of being with Lori as she heard the loving voice of Jesus, answered His knocking, and opened the door of her heart.
I pray that these poems will be an encouragement to all who read them and that the body of Christ will be built up. May they draw believers closer to the Lord Jesus Christ, and touch the hearts of those who haven't yet answered His call.
If you desire to understand God's HEARt,
HEAR the message of the t (Cross).
I invite you to hear that message in my own words and in my own life.
May our Lord be pleased with and glorified in this offering.
Whether therefore ye eat, or drink, or whatsoever ye do,
do all to the glory of God.
1 Corinthians 10:31
