10-13-14 Thoughts and Ways

The thoughts of God are not the thoughts of men,

For men’s are limited and God’s are limitless.

We think of God the Father now and then,

But God thinks of us constantly to bless.

We think that we can save ourselves with deeds;

God’s thoughts are full of grace and love so pure,

And while we work to earn our common needs,

Our God provides the ways we can endure.

Our ways are crooked, complicated, too;

The ways of God are plain, transparent, manifest.

We move among the shadows to subdue

While God is full of light unchained and blessed.

The thoughts and ways of men lead but to death;

God grants eternal life with Spirit’s breath.

~~~~~~~~~~~

For my thoughts are not your thoughts,

neither are your ways my ways, saith the LORD.

Isaiah 55:8 KJV

9-18-14 Loaded With Benefits

????????????????????????????????????????

Although it may seem life is very hard,

With grief and pain and burdens day by day,

Regardless how we think our day is marred,

Remember God has blessed us all the way.

He’s given us a mortal life so rare

And breathed in us a spirit filled with love;

He’s given us no more than we can bear,

And dreams that seems to fit us like a glove.

The greatest of His benefits is Christ,

Who sacrificed His life to save our own,

And though we know God’s awesome Grace sufficed,

When Jesus shed His blood the Way was shown.

Should we not be more grateful than we are?

God’s love for us exceeds the bad by far.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Blessed be the Lord,

who daily loadeth us with benefits,

even the God of our salvation.

Psalm 68:19 KJV
