THE REAL THING

Truth instead of plattitudes;
Living faith instead of doctrine;
Joy in place of a “stiff uper lip;”
A God who’s worth believing in.

 

Hope instead of mere wishing;
Courage, not just a “spine of steel;”
Peace that comes from trusting in Jesus,
Almighty God, loving and real.

 

Surrender to His perfect will,
Fruit of His affection and grace;
Life in the power of Holy Spirit;
Ever in the light of His face.

 

We are called to live in Him
Who redeems us and makes us whole;
This is true Kingdom reality:
Jesus is Lover of our souls.

About lifehelps

I am like a rich tapestry, full of texture and color. I'm a musician, composer, poet, gardener, homemaker and friend. I worked as anLCSW for 22 years; as a socialworker for 26 years all told. Before that, I was a rehabilitation teacher. My passion is to come alongside others; to empower and bless them. That is why you will find plenty of variety in my blog. Two very important things to know about me is that I am a life-long learner - An explorer and sojourner. I also belong to the Lord Jesus...now, before you get tweeked out: I am not saying I am "religious." There is a huge difference between all of the rules and empty practice that often gets associated with Christianity and the kind of life that comes from being in a relationship with the loving God. May you find encouragement, inspiration, insight, good ideas and a laugh or two as you read my posts and comments.
