God Will Prevail ~

dont-give-up

It’s not about the fall,
or the number of times we fail
it’s about getting back up
even though we are frail.

It’s not about the troubles,
that we get ourselves in
it’s about our decision
whether to continue in our sin.

It’s not about the breakdown,
or the times we come apart
it’s about if we emerge
with repentance in our heart.

It’s not about the wheat,
that goes through the sieve
it’s about the chaff that remains
and the ones who still believe.

It’s not about the fall,
or the number of times we fail
it’s about the times we rise
knowing God’s mercy will prevail!

Proverbs 24:16
King James Version

“For a just man falleth seven times,
and riseth up again: but the wicked
shall fall into mischief.”

    Again a well thought out poem and testament to God. Share a new one of mine with you.
    The Shining Light Of His Love
    You see The Light Shining Bright Across The Land
    Pointing The Way To the tomb where It All Began
    Pushing Back The Darkness As it ’s sins are ever Turning
    See the Son rise hearing his gentle call the heart yearning
    From the darkness born of men’s original sin and dimed light
    Then that yearning for the light when answered sets darkness to flight
    Our life in spin holds the darkness In, until the beauty of the Son Rises within
    Nothing unclean can stand before the Thrown of light
    Though their darkness sometimes lets stars shine
    Their not bright enough to stand the glory of the son
    My days are changed since I was gathered by the Son
    Now I walk in the darkest night in the son’s inner light
    That calms the Heart and lets the Mind that His light in Me does shine
    Like darkness overtaken by His light of Love Shining in each dark hart below
    Till each Heart shines to every corner within with Jesus His love light Glow
    No I walk the land of darkness that my love can ban .by shining the light of God’s Son
    The darkness of evil seems to ever grow will be banished from the Bright Light of the One
    In you it may show if you call on His name and end your shame and Grow till called to His thrown
    There you will see those called Home by the light shared with you that you have gathered and sown

Searching For Christ

Welcome to the page of a burning heart! A repentant prodigal son now returns to seek the embrace of our Heavenly Father. Here a heart stricken with a desire to lift up God, feels a great need to know our Savior Jesus Christ, These writings are to share with children, wife, and those who would care, what the Spirit whispers on how to take our relationship with the Lord to a higher and more intimate level. Pray that we can all learn to love God more and come closer to Him each and every day!
