“Let the beauty of the Lord be upon us.” PSA 90: 17
We may not all have the gift of exhortation
But encouraging we can be,
Our thoughts and words are containers or weapons
And portray discord or victory.
To send thoughts of love towards others
Helps to keep your own spirit in line,
Bearing good fruit comes as a result
Of abiding in the vine.
God has given to us a measure of faith,
A spirit to trust and believe,
You’ll find the pathway of freedom begins When we decide to look up and receive.
For faith is the anchor of the soul,
Hope keeps us steadfast in times of trial,
Gives us the ability to look beyond ourselves
And meet life’s obstacles with a smile.
