4-1-15 Fooled

fool-tool

There’s nothing worse than dealing with a fool,

Especially a fool consumed by lust or greed;

It’s easier to pull a stubborn mule

Than soon convince a fool to then concede.

A fool that’s in his folly please beware,

For he will pull you in then more and more;

It’s better to come cross a mother bear

Who’s had her babies stolen just before.

And then there is the fool with half a wit

That tries to separate you from your wealth.

If you refuse to give he’ll throw a fit

And stress you out so much you lose your health.

If you wear God’s full armor you’ll be tooled;

You’ll be prepared in Christ and won’t be fooled.

~~~~~~~~~~~

Let a bear robbed of her whelps meet a man,

rather than a fool in his folly.

Proverbs 17:12 KJV

7-31-14 Believe, My Friend

Believe

Believe on Jesus now, I beg you please,

For your eternal life depends on it!

The miracles He did, but not just these,

He lived for you and never once did quit.

Believe, my friend, for He believed in you

Enough to come down here to show the way!

He took upon Himself your sins, it’s true;

He bled and died for you one awful day.

Believe the words of Jesus, this I plead!

The things He said He heard from God above.

If you believe on Him and then concede,

You will be born again in perfect love!

Believe and live forever, O my friend!

Believe on Jesus Christ, in Him depend.

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

Verily, verily, I say unto you,

He that believeth on me hath everlasting life.

John 6:47

7-8-14 All (a Sonnet)

surrender

Consider all the things you now possess,

The creature comforts, all you hold most dear,

Including friends so close that you profess

And fam’ly most of all that you revere.

Now choose the thing or person in your heart

That you love more and cherish most of all,

And ask yourself sincere if this you’d part

If God would have you yield and heed His call.

You must be willing to concede today

Your fortune, friends and all your loved ones here,

To do the will of God without delay

And even life itself to thus adhere.

He calls you to surrender to His will,

And all you ask of Him He will fulfill.

“…My lord, O king, according to thy saying,

am thine, and all that I have.”
