Trust and Obey

From Matthew 28:19-20:  “Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything that I have commanded you.  And remember, I am with you always, to the end of the age.”

Forgettable years adding up

Spiritual health needs checkup

 

Winter’s never-ending season

Now asking, “What is life’s reason?”

 

Empty heart filling with sorrow

God not waiting for tomorrow

 

Lost on dusty shelf, answer speaks

Holy Bible verses now seek

 

God’s guiding hands open each page

Grace unlocking life’s gloomy cage

 

Gospels speak of Messiah’s love

Son journeys to earth from above

 

Jesus speaks truth with conviction

Mercy’s faith heals each affliction

 

Son of God tells of one to come

Spirit beating hope’s steady drum

 

Lord’s Advocate, incessant voice

Each day fills with His divine choice

 

Trust and obey our Triune God

Righteousness shatters sin’s facade

 

Unforgettable years beaming

Spiritual health now gleaming

  1. “Empty heart filling with sorrow/God not waiting for tomorrow/Lost on dusty shelf, answer speaks/Holy Bible verses now seek” Love these lines, Richard, that speak eternal truth: the word of God is manna to mournful hearts, and will through the Spirit turn our mourning into dancing.
