As I wonder to, and fro in this world of unkind
men I find myself becoming so caught up in my
surroundings that I begin to wonder what the
purpose of life is, on this planet, after all.
It is not a competition to see who can afford
the biggest car, or the largest home on the
block. The possessions that are given me in
life are nothing compared to what You have
promised me in death.
When I hear two people talking about their
possessions with such adoration, I wonder if
they really understand that those things shall
all pass away, what then will they have? If
they were to wake up tomorrow and find it all
gone, what then? Would their worlds fall apart,
or would they realize that they were only
useless possessions? And the only important
things in life are still in front of them,
there for the asking.
Do they know Lord? Do they know that life
without You, Lord, Jesus is a life not worth
living? Cars rust and fall apart, buildings
crumble to the ground and are swept away, but
You will always be there no matter what. You
reach out your hand freely to them and ask
nothing of them that You have not already given.
You are my treasure, Lord, without you I am
nothing. When I cryout to you, you come to me
and reach out your hand to me and pull me up out
of the waters that threaten to drown me. You
take me into Your loving arms and hold me close
whispering softly in my ear that it is alright,
for I am never alone.
You are always with me and no matter how far I
stray You will always be able to reach out to me
and save me from this world so full of sin. I
find such freedom and strength in knowing that
my Jesus will always be there for me, no matter
This world around me truly has nothing for me,
for it is nothing Lord Jesus without You, and my
Father; God, in heaven. Thank you Father for
sending Your only Son to save us from this
world,and thank you Lord Jesus for accepting the
call for sinners like me. I know there is
nothing I can ever do to repay You for Your
sacrifice, yet the wonderful thing is You expect
nothing more from me than love, and faith.
Thank you Lord for Your saving Grace, I will
always love you.
