Unknown

Sometimes when we don’t know why
the unknown makes us want to cry.
It sure tries to offend
when we don’t comprehend.
We just need to be real
and bring to God our appeal.
We don’t need a fleece
in order to find His peace.
Just tell the Lord how you feel
and He will easily deal
with the situation.
There will be no complication
so you won’t need your wit
just trust Him through it.

Prayer *Col. 4:2-4

2 Devote yourselves to prayer, being watchful and thankful. 3 And pray for us, too, that God may open a door for our message, so that we may proclaim the mystery of Christ, for which I am in chains. 4 Pray that I may proclaim it clearly, as I should. 5 Be wise in the way you act toward outsiders; make the most of every opportunity. 6 Let your conversation be always full of grace, seasoned with salt, so that you may know how to answer everyone.

Lord, God of Israel, teach us how to devote ourselves to prayer, being watchful and thankful. I pray that You, Lord would open a door for us to proclaim the mystery of Christ, and proclaim it clearly. And that we would be wise in the way we act toward outsiders – making the most of every opportunity. Lord, let our conversation be always full of grace, seasoned with salt, so that we may know how to answer everyone. (Col. 4:2-4 prayer)

Connection

My connection
is free from obstruction.
the direct line
is strong and fine.
It’s free and clear
for me to hear.
There’s no more static
trying to rake havoc.
No longer am I puzzled
for the words aren’t muzzled.
They are clear as a bell
It’s easy to tell
what is being said
clearly to my head.
I don’t have to guess
there will be no mess.
I will know what to do
because my Lord got through.

Offering

My voice I want to raise
I want to sing  Your praise
throughout all of my days.
~
Attached with no strings
my offering
I will bring.
~
I have been taught
my best should be brought
so an offering is sought.
~
It needs to be my best
above all the rest
something with zest.
~
Something bright and not dim
and not on a whim
to bring to Him.
~
My aim is to please
because He sees
it’s not to appease.

Whatever You Do *Col. 3:18-25

Whatever you do – husband & wife, slave & master, employer & employee do it all – all you do – do it for the Lord God for your reward will be great in heaven.
~~~
18 Wives, submit yourselves to your husbands, as is fitting in the Lord.
19 Husbands, love your wives and do not be harsh with them.
20 Children, obey your parents in everything, for this pleases the Lord.
21 Fathers, do not embitter your children, or they will become discouraged.
22 Slaves, obey your earthly masters in everything; and do it, not only when their eye is on you and to curry their favor, but with sincerity of heart and reverence for the Lord. 23 Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as working for the Lord, not for human masters, 24 since you know that you will receive an inheritance from the Lord as a reward. It is the Lord Christ you are serving. 25 Anyone who does wrong will be repaid for their wrongs, and there is no favoritism.
