The enemy's always attempting to render
Each upright, faithful Christian defender
Powerless; useless; unable to show
Sinners and seekers the Way to go.
He uses those in his bonded employ
To divert, to bait, to trip and annoy;
To keep us busy so that we can't
Sow good seeds when it's time to plant.
Their lips are full of lies and deceit;
They set their traps for the righteous; the meek -
A True Friend
(a children's poem)
If you should need a friend that's true
Then Christ is the best friend for you
For he is faithful, true and strong,
And He will never get it wrong.
He'll always answer when you call;
He'll always be there when you fall
To comfort, heal and hold your hand;
To pick you up and help you stand.
This friend I'm telling you about
Has truly got a lot of clout;
If its fear that ever draws near … If its worldly concerns that make us fear … The answer lyes in when we ask Jesus to draw near … He’s the one who can dispel all our fear … If we don’t believe Jesus is sincere in his promise to dispel our fear … Ask him to help our unbelief … It’s a sin that needs to disappear … It’s not burying your head and hoping the sand will make it disappear … Theres practical things we can do like bringing order into our life … As things come clear … Jesus is a Saviour
Easier Said Than Done
Have you talked to God today;
Bowed your head down low to pray?
Have you bared your soul to Him;
Have you let Him in?
Have you fed a needy child;
Wiped away a tear and smiled?
Have you shown you truly care
By offering a meal and prayer?
Have you helped your friends in need -
Shown God's love through a good deed?
Have you listened when they talked;
Have you walked the
Good morning … Just because we are meek doesn't mean we are weak … When someone is mean-spirited to us … This is difficult … Don't return or do as they do … Treat them with kindness and respect … That’s something they won’t expect … It could be they don’t see … Even so respect.
