Obeying God

Obeying God

Tonight a niece called
She was crying because
The local police had
Taken her husband away

They needed my help...so
After praying...I responded
I drove to pick him up, paid his bail
Saved him from staying in jail.

He has problems but
Is actually a good young man
This morning he helped me by
Bringing my firewood in

Yes, they will repay me
On their own.... Iím glad
That he is safe at home
And will be there for Christmas

Jesus says to give... and I gave
What I could to help in this way
After all, they have a child
And soon it will be Jesusís birthday

What more can I say?
Some relatives disapproved
Of what I did...but
I answer only to God.

I am yielded forever
In my heart, mind, and body
For I know who takes care of me
So this is part of my testimony

We should all do what
God urges us to do
Listen to your heart
The guidance will be true!

How can I write this without
Seeming to sound rude?
Easy...because God , our creator
In the Bible, tells us what to do.

I had one nephew who screamed
At me today for no reason, except
He seemed jealous of me helping
His sisterís husband

Tonight, my most beloved nephew
Who I taught to walk, at 2& Ĺ years old
Visited, and brought Christmas gifts
Such a change, and blessing from God


So the message is... obey God
Blessings will follow, and
You will be able to
Help others, in Christian love.
