101514 Not Worthy

happy

Imagine that the first day of the year

Is filled with nothing but calamity,

But all the days that follow full of cheer;

To count the year a blessing you’d agree.

No matter how you suffer in this life,

If you’re a child of God it’s worth the grief.

It seems to last forever, but this strife

Compared to life eternal ’tis but brief.

And those unsaved that call this living hell,

If they think this is bad they’ve just to wait.

Anticipating joy, the saved know well

The promise God has made the next estate.

This life is full of pain, there is no doubt;

The bliss that lies ahead will make you shout.

~~~~~~~~~~~

For I reckon that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy 

to be compared with the glory which shall be revealed in us.

Romans 8:18 KJV

9-16-14 Whenever You are Tempted

Temptation_of_Christ

Whenever you are tempted stop and think,

Remember how temptations followed Christ

With Satan in the wilderness to slink

And hunger, fame and power so enticed.

The Son of God was tempted all the time,

For many wanted Him to fail his work.

The Pharisees tried tricking Him sublime

With questions that they hoped the Lord would shirk.

Disowned by followers, disciples, God,

And on the cross some tempted Him to live.

But He did not succumb to something flawed,

So now just call on Him, He’ll gladly give.

Christ understands what you are going through

He’ll help you beat temptation’s point of view.

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

For in that he himself hath suffered being tempted,

he is able to succour them that are tempted.

Hebrews 2:18 KJV
