Faith’s Adventure

From the words of American pastor and Christian teacher, Charles Stanley:  “Obeying God’s will in our lives should not be a burden but a thrilling adventure that we walk through with Him each day.”

Believer’s obedience

Thrilling adventure

Filled with Father’s blessed grace

Divine, joint venture

 

Trusting with patience of Job

Faith’s foundation grows

Living upon Father’s rock

His way always knows

 

One step follows another

Smallest matters count

Daily walk of faith matures

Father’s blessings mount

 

Escaping from sin’s darkness

Mercy marks life’s route

Repenting for transgressions

Father’s grace takes sprout

 

Obedience grows with love

Leading back to God

Life’s choices, Father rewards

His glory’s tripod

From Psalm 40:6-8:  “Sacrifice and offering you do not desire, but you have given me an open ear.  Burnt offering and sin offering you have not required.  Then I said, ‘Here I am; in the scroll of the book it is written of me.  I delight to do your will, O my God; your law is within my heart.'”

    • Lisa, your kind affirmation of my poetry has always encouraged me to challenge myself. This particular poem uses a slightly different number of syllables in each verse . . . 7, 5, 7, 5. There are times when I think it would be amazing to craft verses to music.
