1-24-15 Take Comfort

tears

A friend of many years has passed away,

Their pain and sorrow will be borne no more,

Yet there goes half your night and half your day;

Anf half your broken heart is on the floor.

Take comfort in the Savior’s arms today

 And lean your tired head against His chest;

He holds you tight and wipes your tears away,

He whispers in your ear and gives you rest.

The world it seems no longer is attuned;

In fact it seems it’s crumbled all apart.

Take comfort in the Lord, He’ll bind your wound;

In time He’ll even heal your broken heart.

Your friend has left this place for glory’s light;

She’s taking comfort in Christ’s love tonight.

~~~~~~~~~~~

He healeth the broken in heart,

and bindeth up their wounds.

Psalm 147:3 KJV

8-8-14 Always

forgive them

To be forgiven you must first forgive,

But your forgiveness does not set a goal.

Would you have life but rather fully live?

I tell you one is half, the other whole.

Forgive each other with no end in sight,

With no condition, no demands or doubt.

If Christ’s pure love would live in you forthright,

Give all your brothers’ sins to God throughout.

You often hear ‘Forgive but not forget.’

How long would you survive if God did this?

If you keep tabs you’ve not forgiven yet.

Forgetting comes with following your bliss.

Your bliss should be to let Christ live in you.

He’ll lead you to forgiveness always new.

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

Then Peter came up and said to him,

“Lord, how often will my brother sin against me,

and I forgive him? As many as seven times?”

Jesus said to him, “I do not say to you seven times,

but seventy-seven times.”

Matthew 18: 21-22 ESV
