GOODNESS BRAVERY AND GRATITUDE
by Tom Zart
8/31/2009 / Worship
THE KING OF CHRISTMAS
The son of God came down to earth
To be our Lord by divine birth.
Born to a virgin in a stable He lie
Destine to lead, teach, suffer and die.
Satan transformed from laughter to rage
When Christ arrived to destroy man's cage.
A never ending chance to redeem our soul
A new opportunity to achieve God's goal.
Evil doers hate the birth of God's child
They love what is immoral, wicked and wild.
Degrading Christmas wherever they can
Jealous of the joy and rapture of man.
Hallelujah Jesus the king of Christmas night
With a star for his crown bathed in holy light
Christ is our savior who leads by trust and love
Delivering us from Satan to the grace of God Above.
Lots of us wish to please God
But we really don't know how.
His ways are higher than our ways
Because we're wicked, weak and foul.
God works according to His schedule
Which sometimes is a problem for man.
His love, grace, wisdom and understanding
Keep believers obedient to command.
We have no choice but to obey
Following His Holy Spirit and Word.
By living to conform to His righteous
Our passage to glory is assured.
We see God's works in the lives of others
How exciting and fascinating it is.
God can do the same for us as well
As our purpose becomes the same as "His."
GOODNESS BRAVERY AND GRATITUDE
What would you say if God asked you
Like Joshua to lead many others?
Like Daniel, Paul, David and Moses
And so many sisters and brothers.
Might you wonder who am I
To follow in the footsteps of Moses?
Bravery thrives on precious assurance
As the waters of God beckon the roses.
While earthly trials test our faith and resolve
Remember they're never everlasting.
Caught in the crossfire for the soul of man
As the weapons of war do their casting.
Grab your Bible and research some stories
To share with loved ones or friend.
Help lead them to the mansion of God
Where the spirits of the righteous ascend.
Stand proud and preach for the Grace of God
If you wish to relay your gratitude.
Set an example for those who follow
By your goodness, bravery and attitude.
THE POWER Of COURAGE
Besides loving God, we need courage
Obeying His laws requires bravery.
For the power of sin is always festering
As evil condemns man's soul to slavery.
God travels with us inside our spirit
Forewarning that which is right or wrong.
Satan tags along tempting our resolve
Spreading his doctrine by video and song.
God promises to defeat our enemies
If we retain faith and observe His rules.
We'll still face battles to preserve our soul
As we endure the blindness of fools.
All of Gods heroes depend on courage
To overcome the dilemmas of strife.
God wants us to follow in His footsteps
As we practice His majesty of life.
Loneliness had me almost persuaded
To let my loyalty and favor stray
But I thought of you and our children
Then decided instead to pray.
For so long you've labored on the railroad
Called away any hour night or day.
Many times in the night when there's thunder
I awake as in anguish and loneliness I lay.
When our children cry out, "where's daddy?"
I remind them you operate a train.
While my main concern is your safety
And will you return to us the same?
I know you're a hard working Christian man
And it's not your fault you're always away.
I composed this poem to express my need
As for your love and tenderness I pray.
I love you more than words can express
As we solder our burdens as husband and wife.
We can't help but be human and make mistakes
As we journey the struggles of life.
Our challenges are many and vary greatly
Raising children in earth's ungodly throng.
Jesus never vows to remove all difficulty
Only His wisdom to endure what's wrong.
Let God take the weight of our burdens
We were never meant to endure alone.
He will never bend us, break us or destroy us
As the seeds of His splendor are sown.
