12-9-14 Wait on the Lord

wait on the lord

If someone strikes you, turn the other cheek,

And if they strike again, then bare your head,

Then wait upon the Lord while you stand meek,

For He’s the final judge for what’s ahead.

Resist temptation’s lure to seek revenge;

Reprisal’s not a stone you need to throw.

Let God alone your injuries avenge,

For vengeance is the Lord’s, you ought to know.

You want the Lord to save you from all wrong,

And in the end He will, this much is true.

The time for judgment’s soon, it won’t be long;

It is the fire that we will all pass through.

Repent for all the sins that you have done

And beg the Lord’s forgiveness through His Son.

~~~~~~~~~~~

Say not thou, I will recompense evil; 

but wait on the LORD, and he shall save thee.

Proverbs 20:22 KJV

11-8-14 Bless Them

being yelled at 02

The world is full of bitterness and hate,

And if you live it will be thrown at you.

Your first reaction is to take the bait,

But Jesus says that love’s the thing to do.

Be kind and gentle though men curse and shout

Or call you every name that’s in the book;

This may be when the Spirit comes about

Convicting them to take another look.

When others use you pray that God forgive

Just as the Savior did upon the cross,

For if you seek revenge you cease to live;

A rolling stone of love will keep no moss.

So bless and pray for those who curse and use;

This is the Christian way and the Good News.

~~~~~~~~~~~

Bless them that curse you,

and pray for them which despitefully use you.

Luke 6:28 KJV

8-23-14 Overcome

overcome

Resist the evil one who stirs up hate,

Who seeks revenge and works to so divide.

He uses men and nations small and great

And even your own nature’s sin inside.

The armor of the Lord is yours to use,

So clothe yourself each day with faith and love.

Then overcome all evil and abuse

With good in word and deed from Christ above.

Returning evil of all kind with good

Makes you the conquerer conclusively.

Then Satan cannot touch you if he could

If you fight evil with integrity.

            The grace and strength of Jesus dwells in you;

            Use this to thwart the evil that men do.

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

Be not overcome of evil,

but overcome evil with good.

Romans 12:21 KJV
