WHAT DO YOU SEE – PART 4

ART & POETRY BY PAUL & KATHY BOECHER©

“Rather than love, than money, than fame, give me truth.” Henry David Thoreau

We always strive to tell the truth, but it can be so hard,

When asked for our true opinion, or dealt a winning card,

We bluff our way through all our days, still trying to be true,

Some button pushes in our brain and tells us what to do,

It’s like a strong, insistent voice that’s speaks the words to you,

It’s swirls its way into voice, you speak without a thought,

Your words come out in blatant lies, but soon you will be caught,

It isn’t worth the consequence, it isn’t worth the pain,

You will risk your reputation, the lie will bring no gain,

It festers in the recesses of mind, and heart and soul,

Your guilt will overtake you, you’ll never reach your goal,

So put your trust in God’s own Son to take away your sin,

Confess to Him the wrong you’ve done, repent – believe in Him,

Make right the wrong you’ve committed, now go and sin no more,

Depend on the Lord to lead you, He’ll open every door.

 

 

 

 

 

About atimetoshare.me

As I reach the end of my years, I find I have a lot of good information stored up in this old decrepit mind of mine. If I don't write it all down, it may vanish and no one will have the advantage of my thoughts. This is why this blog exists. I love the Lord, Jesus with all my heart and soul. I know I'm undeserving of all He's done for me, but I also know that His love is beyond my comprehension. I've always wanted to write. I never kept diaries, but tucked my thoughts in my head for future reference. I use them now in creating stories, plays, poetry and my blog. I continue to learn every day. I believe the compilation of our time spent with God will have huge affect on the way we live. I know I'm a sinner and I need a Savior. I have One through Jesus, Christ. My book, "Stages - a memoir," is about the seven stages of life from the perspective of a woman. It addresses all the things girls and women go through in life as they travel it with Jesus, and it is available on Amazon.com.

    Good thought! Righteousness is not a popular subject, but it is an important one. Heard R. C. Sproul make a sermon out of Matthew 5:20 and Matthew 6:33. Definitely made me think.

      We are so blessed to have this gift for if we had to do it on our own, we wouldn’t have a chance. Thanks, Tom😀
