3-20-15 A Matter of the Mind

mind

Without the grace of God hate does increase;

The world around you clangs cacophany,

But you who share the mind of Christ have peace,

Conducting your affairs in harmony.

Don’t fool yourself in thinking you’re the best;

The least among the least walk with the Lord.

Associate with those who are oppressed

For this is where God’s treasure will be stored.

If you think you are wise then think again;

Most children have more wisdom in their toes.

Put all your faith in Christ and keep thoughts plain;

The answers that you seek the Savior knows.

Submit your mind to God and keep it there

The key to your success is kept in prayer.

~~~~~~~~~~~

Be of the same mind one toward another.

Mind not high things, but condescend to men of low estate.

Be not wise in your own conceits.

Romans 12:16 KJV

1-2-15 Take Refuge

oppression1

If life has thrown you down to trample on,

If everything you do just makes things worse,

If you are at your end and hope is gone,

Take refuge in the Lord, He’s not adverse.

If peace and plenty seem so far away,

If others beat you up and tear you down,

If trouble follows you both night and day,

Take refuge in the Lord, He holds your crown.

If all your worries follow you around,

If you are lost and don’t know what to do,

If all you wish is simply to be found,

Take refuge in the Lord, He’ll see you through.

If you are so oppressed and you need aid,

Take refuge in the Lord, don’t be afraid.

~~~~~~~~~~~

The LORD also will be a refuge for the oppressed,

a refuge in times of trouble.

Psalm 9:9 KJV
