Who's Calling Shotgun?

by Tara Roper  
3/03/2010 / Christian Living

First He convicted me.
I just turned my head.
He convicted me a second time,
I listened up instead.

He said to me, "Dear One,
did you not see this habit unfurl?"
"Remember my child, although you are in it,
you are not of this world."

Sin will come, sin will go,
lying just ahead on your road.
In and out of our life,
lusts of the flesh begin to load...

our hearts and minds,
and all that we are about,
before you know it, that little thing,
begins to Edge God Out.

He doesn't want out, He wants all in,
of that we are assured,
keeping us close, pride melts away,
to the things of this world that once were lured.

So, when trimming your branches,
fret not,you may feel the heat.
But rest in this my friend,
Jesus is in your NEW passenger seat.

I am currently living in Milford, NH with my husband John, and our three children, Caroline, Maggie and Jacob. I am currently a fourth grade teacher. We have recently moved back to New England, and I thank God every day for the blessing of being close to my family.
