6-28-15 The Children of Wrath

child of wrath

Among whom also we all had our conversation in times past in the lusts of our flesh, fulfilling the desires of the flesh and of the mind; and were by nature the children of wrath, even as others.

Ephesians 2:3 KJV

~~~~~~~~~~~

The world is filled with sin up to the brim

And we think we are outside looking in.

I tell you, brother, things are looking grim,

But don’t pretend you’re perfect in your win!

Instead of pointing fingers at the rest,

Remember you were where they are right now.

Right now it is God’s grace that has you blessed;

Without it you’d have hell to pay, and how!

You may have been a step from reprobate

When you chose to accept the Savior’s hand.

Each day such people cross right by your gate.

Please give them love, it may be their last stand!

Don’t be judgmental, be compassionate.

Without Christ’s cleansing blood you’d be unfit.

7-28-14 All You Have to Do is Ask

Assortment Of Bizarre Road Signs

Your daily life can be a lion’s den,

For Satan seeks to vex your very soul,

So you need wisdom time and time again

To face the opposition and stay whole.

Reach out to God your Father when in doubt;

You know He longs to give you what you ask.

The wisdom that you seek is there throughout

To move the right way through your current task.

You might be just the one somebody needs,

The nourishment that feeds their hungry heart;

Seek God’s great wisdom first and then proceed

To let His Spirit lead you from the start.

It’s foolish to rely on your own wit;

You’ll lose your way for sure as one unfit.

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

If any of you lack wisdom, you should ask God,

who gives generously to all without finding fault,

and it will be given to you.

James 1:5 NIV
