Now I Sit Me Down In School

Now I sit me down in school, where praying is against the rule.

For this great nation under God, finds mention of Him very odd.




If Scripture now the class recites, it violates the Bill of Rights.

And anytime my head I bow, becomes a federal matter now.




Our hair can be purple, orange and green. That’s no offense; it’s a freedom scene.

The law is specific, the law is precise. Prayers spoken aloud are a serious vice.




For praying in a public hall, might offend someone with no faith at all.

In silence alone we must meditate, God’s name is prohibited by the state.




We’re allowed to cuss and dress like freaks, and pierce our noses, tongues and cheeks.

They’ve outlawed guns, but FIRST the Bible, to quote the Good Book makes me liable.




We can elect a pregnant senior queen, and the “unwed daddy” our senior queen.

It’s inappropriate to teach right from wrong, we’re taught that such judgements don’t belong.




We can get our condoms and birth controls, study witchcraft, vampires and totem poles.

But the Ten Commandments are not allowed. No Word of God must reach this crowd.




It’s scary here I must confess, when chaos reigns the school’s a mess.

So Lord, this silent plea I make: should I be shot, my soul please take! Amen!



Trust Him

A message from Joel Osteen

Today’s Scripture

“Trust in the LORD with all your heart, and do not lean on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge Him and He will make straight your paths” (Proverbs 3:5-6 ESV).

Today’s Word from Joel and Victoria

Do you need God’s direction in your life? Often times, the Lord will instruct your heart to do something that’s just the opposite of what your natural mind thinks you should do. It doesn’t make sense, but God’s principals are very different from the world’s principals. In the natural, it doesn’t make sense that if you are in need, you should give to someone-you should sow a seed. But you can trust God’s Word that says “what you sow, you shall reap.” You can trust that God’s system is set up for your good. His system is set up to prosper you and not harm you. He wants to give you a future and a hope. As you step out and trust God and obey His word-even when you don’t understand-He promises to direct your paths. He promises that your path will shine brighter and brighter every single day!

A Prayer for Today

Thank You, God, for directing my path today. Thank You for opening my heart to trust You today. Keep me close to You and teach me to hear Your voice so that I may please You all the days of my life. In Jesus’ Name. Amen.
