Life’s Balance

From 2 Corinthians 4:8-10:  “We are afflicted in every way, but not crushed; perplexed, but not driven to despair; persecuted, but not forsaken; struck down, but not destroyed; always carrying in the body the death of Jesus, so that the life of Jesus may also be made visible in our bodies.”

Life’s balance totters back and forth

Living one moment as sinners

Other moments walking as saints

Hope springs forth from living Jesus


Just as Jesus Christ has risen

We shall be raised with our Savior

By accepting and loving Him

Eternity calls believers


Resurrection unlocks promise

God’s love shouts from criminal’s cross

Jesus conquers both sin and death

Taking our place, erasing debts


Spirit allows life to grasp hope

Our outer selves wasting away

Inner selves renewed with each day

Eyes cannot see, yet trust in faith


Mercy runs deeper than water

Living Water with purity

Believe in Christ, Lord and Savior

Leading with grace to our Father

From 2 Corinthians 5:1:  “For we know that if the earthly tent we live in is destroyed, we have a building from God, a house not made with hands, eternal in the heavens.”
