Begin in the morning of each new day.
Determine with God’s help in every way;
Endeavour to be the best that you can be,
So that who you represent everyone can see.
God says the eyes are the window of the soul.
Christ as seen in you is your every day goal.
Don’t measure your life by those that you see,
For it is God Himself that is looking at Thee.
Christ is the overseer guiding what you do.
And it is He alone who sees the “secret you”.
To others your best may not be good enough,
Lay hold of His word when the road is rough.
And rest assured, He says:”Lovest Thou Me?”
“Lovest Thou Me “ more than all that you do?
“Lovest Thou Me” more than acquiring too?
Being your best is having faith that the rest
Left to the Master, it will withstand the test.
For all the trials of this world dost ill afford.
By faith God’s best will bring you accord.
Simply trust in the power of the risen Lord!
N.B. The last three lines of this poem really spoke to my heart, and it is obvious to me in my struggle right now with displaced hips due to the motor vehicle accident.
“Afford” according to the dictionary, can also mean “Without much inconvenience.”
“Accord” can also mean “To agree or harmonize.”
SO “The trials of this world will not cause me inconvenience for if I trust in the power of the risen Lord I will find I have agreement and harmony with Him”. This pain will cause me less inconvenience if I learn to trust in God’s power.
