"Inspirations"

These "inspirations"  have come as a result of my Lord's gentle teaching over the years and I am honored to share them with you. I pray that they may be a vessel through which God can touch your heart with a special blessing as you read and reflect prayerfully upon them.

May God be Glorified!

WHAT WOULD JESUS DO?

This question, thrown out there time and time again,
     "What would Jesus do?"

The answer is and always will be in the answer yet to this,
     "What has Jesus done?"

When I am down He sits with me and cries with me
     and then He wipes my tears away.
When I am joyous He sings and dances and laughs with me
     until I can sing and dance and laugh no more.
When I am cruel and selfish and full of pride
     He comes to me and gently shows to me the better way.
          His rod and staff - they comfort me.
When fear sweeps over me like a fire raging deep within the forest;
     He sends His rain of peace to put the fire out.
When I go where I should not, He goes there too, so I will not go alone ~
     He is my Lamp to show me back to the security of Home.

When He uttered the words, "It is finished", what had He done to say it so?
     Ah, yes ~ He died upon that Cross with the burden of my sin upon His soul;

Then Life from Heaven came and washed that sin away ~
     Therein Faith conceived to be born in you and born in me!

What has Jesus done?
     Why, He has been my Friend.
          Have I been His?! ~ I pray so 'til the end !!!

Herein lies the evidence ~ your answer to this alone,
     Have I been yours?

What would Jesus do? He would do what He has done.
     So, I am off to do what He would do, in as much as we are one.
