Overcomers Eat from the Tree of Life.

Overcomers eat from the Tree of Life!
Revelation 2;7


He made us overcomers!
It’s the hardest thing to be.
Yet the way that Jesus does it
Is a marvellous thing to see.

I suffered in my childhood
And I sometimes suffer now.
And the longer that I stay there
The bigger is the row!

I can go downhill in landslides,
I can get offside in scores,
But when I finally look at Him
I’m laughing through the doors -.

“What took you so long my sweetheart?”
He is always most polite.
"I’ve been watching while you monkeyed,"
“Yes, I remembered ‘bout the light”

I focussed on my weakness,
It’s a painful thing to do.
But Your strength is there made perfect
And You love me even so.

So I throw away the old stuff.
That road’s rutted to the core.
And I bounce back to the vision
That You gave me once before.

It’s a matter of where the eyes go.
If I’m on the inward path,
Then I’m for it. He can’t stop me..
But I need to take a bath,

Plunge into the living waters
Of a present in His love
And a path stretched out before me
Mapped by Him in Heaven above.

Set aside that thought that holds me.
Put away those selfish tears.
There’s a sin that has beset me
And repentance has the gears

Turn mine eyes upon our Yeshua
Who demolished all those “bears”,
And in His dynamic passion
Show them Jesus changes things!.

For Life is in the loving.
And the loving's is in the giving,
And the giving’s in the vision,
And the vision’s in the eternal,
And that’s a long…… long …… long …… long ……and wondrous time.



If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW
