Watch Yourself

Filed under: Uncategorized — cubsfan1980 @ 7:12 am

Take a look in the mirror
And reflect on yourself.
For every deficiency you find
Remember Jesus and his atoning work.

Do what it takes for self improvement,
Not out of your own strength,
But through Him who gives power
For every good work.

You deceive yourself and miss the blessing
When you only hear, but don’t do.
Persevere in the law of liberty
To gain the reward of what you’ve worked for.

 

A poem based on 2 John 1:8 and James 1:22-25

I desire living water to flow from my heart

Filed under: Uncategorized — cubsfan1980 @ 7:04 am

“Whoever believes in me, as the Scripture has said, ‘Out of his heart will flow rivers of living water.'””

‭‭John‬ ‭7:38‬ ‭ESV‬‬

Spirit baptize me with your presence

I need the living waters that only

Your love and power provides.

Spirit submerge my heart

In your living waters to make me pure

So I can see God and reflect Him.

I want to be a conduit of living water

To show others what a marvelous gift

Is freely available to those who believe

Soften any hardness and make me usable

Refine and renew me so I am wholly yours

Make me into a living sacrifice

For the one who sacrificed himself for me.
