A Glimpse into Godís World and Mine
Just lately, it seems in my life
I believe that I have changed
The way I feel about some things
Has now been rearranged.
Once Sunday, after Sunday School
An important decision, I made
From now on, Iím going to tithe
No longer this task will I evade.
We always think itís too much
Some funds then we would lack
The truth is, God is always giving
Far more, He gives back.
Iíve decided to forgive and forget
When I feel that Iíve been wronged
Holding grudges and harboring them
Should never be prolonged.
Itís wasted time and hurts the Lord
To think we canít forgive
When love and friendship are His plan
In the way that we should live.
One night at a Senior dance
I was sitting there alone
So Ė I joined another lady
Which put life on a happier tone.
Her balance, she said, was not the best
Though she was able to dance
But must be held securely
For falling, her life would not enhance.
We then chatted till that number was finished
Till the music came to an end
It filled a space of loneliness
And we each had gained a friend.
Iíve seen ďThe Passion of the ChristĒ
The movie that now holds sway
Scenes are etched in your mind
You just canít turn away.
You see the terrible cruelty and pain
That Christ bore for all mankind
It is very graphic
Will not be forgotten, not ever, you will find.
But have we really come so far
Arenít we cruel today?
Inflicting pain on friend or foe
All along the way.
Weíre pushing Christ away from us
Weíve complicated His world
Heís not welcome in our schools
Seems from everywhere Heís hurled.
We have our world in such a mess
And why is this so?
Because we are not following
His path Ė the way to go.
God sent His Son, His only Son
To die for our sins
Through Jesus we are pardoned
Through Him, evil never wins.
Therefore, free of sin, our choice can be
Yet another giftís been stored
ďThe gift of God is eternal life
Through Jesus Christ, our LordĒ.
I try to be a Christian
Not perfect Ė things I lack
But if I ask to be forgiven
The Lord will take me back.
May you have a Blessed Easter
See the goodness of God unfurled
And be aware of His precious Son
Who came bringing love to all the world.
