Living Your Life

Life cannot always be lived on a mountain top.                                                                             
The higher one lives, the swifter becomes the drop.
Living below, amidst the darkened forest floor,
You will beg for light wanting to breathe more.
A roller coaster ride can be scary and to some fun. 
A continuous ride will make you sick, the ride to shun.
You need to look for stability in the midst of change
Ask God to help you to know just what to rearrange.
God says He will show you the right path to follow.
He will skim off the futile  and show you what to follow.

Psalm 25:4 - 12 ~ “Show me the right path, O Lord, point out the road for me to follow....
Who are those who fear the Lord? He will show them the path they should choose.
Psalm 37:5 ~ “Commit everything you do to the Lord. Trust Him, and He will help you.”
Proverbs 16:17 ~ “The path of the virtuous leads away from evil; whoever follows that path is safe.”

What You Sow You Will Reap

Lord, teach me to think before I act,
And open my ears to hear before I judge.
May I be ever ready to forgive my enemies,
So that You, O Father will forgive me.
If I choose to be candid and frank
Ensure my words are softened with love.
Remind me to lift up a fallen brother,
And not to think more highly of myself.
Holy Spirit give me sympathy for the afflicted
For I may walk their path one day myself.

Holy Spirit help me to think before I speak,.
Close my ears that I hear no gossip that passes by.
And seal my lips so no gossip passes from me.
I want to be loyal to my church and its principles,
And I desire to stand by the truths in your word.
If my tongue becomes slanderous, bridle it Lord.
I desire to have a clean heart with pure thoughts.
May I be courteous and kind to all that I meet,
For one day I will stand at Thy judgment seat,
May I not be ashamed of how I have lived for Thee.


Nahum 1:7 ~ “The Lord is good, a strong refuge when trouble comes. He is close to those who trust in Him.”

Hebrews 10:23 ~ “ ”Let us hold tightly without wavering to the hope we affirm, for God can be trusted to keep His promise.”
