When drama comes and beats against your home

Does it destroy all of the work you’ve done?

Then your foundation’s built upon some loam

And soon before you know it you must run.

But if you build your home on Jesus Christ

It’s on the Rock of Ages and secure.

No storm can move you then, His word sufficed,

The tragedies of life won’t long endure.

Upon the rock of Jesus stake your claim;

No better place to stop and settle down.

The scriptures serve to be the strongest frame

And God’s Grace like a roof won’t let you drown.

For all the rest there’s one whom I refer:

He happens to be quite the carpenter.

~~~~~~~~~~~

47 Whosoever cometh to me, and heareth my sayings, and doeth them, I will shew you to whom he is like:

48 He is like a man which built an house, and digged deep, and laid the foundation on a rock: and when the flood arose, the stream beat vehemently upon that house, and could not shake it: for it was founded upon a rock.

49 But he that heareth, and doeth not, is like a man that without a foundation built an house upon the earth; against which the stream did beat vehemently, and immediately it fell; and the ruin of that house was great.

Luke 6: 47-49 KJV

12-11-14 On Drama

Businessmen fighting

No matter where you go there’s some dispute.

When everybody’s right the rest are wrong.

And some will stir the water to pollute,

Or stick their noses where they don’t belong.

You need not go too far, the drama’s near;

It’s probably within your very home,

But you don’t have to fight, no need to jeer;

You don’t have to get mad, no need to foam.

Just lean upon the Lord in silent prayer,

And be compassionate to all you meet.

No need to pry when it’s not your affair,

And if it is be humble and discreet.

A wiser man grows wiser without strife.

Find comfort in the Lord; increase your life.

~~~~~~~~~~~

It is an honour for a man to cease from strife:

but every fool will be meddling.

Proverbs 20:3 KJV
