The Essence of Him
by Joy Ellerbe

Not For Sale

He moves with great charm and sophistication.
His movements are precise with very little hesitation.
He knows what he wants as he is under Godís control.
So there is great comfort when he simply says, trust that I know.
No amount of manipulation can shake his foundation.
His feet are planted firmly on God, the solid rock of His salvation.
Because of his footing you wonít find him looking by no means grim.
Because itís clear that worship is the essence of him.


He gives of himself to the woman he chose to be his wife.
Though, not at all before he had given himself fully to Jesus Christ.
Filled with determination and perseverance he suffers trials.
But he quickly rejoices as he knows they only last for a while.
He sits and weeps for a time but then quickly rises to stand.
For his hope lies in the holding to Godís unchanging and faithful hand.
Thereís no mistaking that the light that guides him is far from dim.
For that light is Jesus as worship is the essence of Him.


His words are thought out and his authority is strong.
He is responsible enough to admit that he is wrong.
He is not too prideful to see the error of his ways.
But he is quick to embrace rebuke so that for the better he may change.
He is confident in himself; there is no need to boast about things.
But he gladly accepts the compliments that true humility brings.
He treats people with love but does not live to please them.
For his service glorifies God as worship is the essence of him.
