THERMOSTATS

The thermostat on my wall
Just seems to hang out there
Withno concern at all;
It hasn’t a single care.

 

Unlike the thermometer
Tracking inside and out:
Thermostat controls the heat:
That’s what it’s all about.

 

So it is with God’s elect,
Called to change atmospere;
To have a profound effect
On people far and near.

 

We are not called to follow
The fads that come along;
But as we God to all show,
We strengthen the Spirit’s song.

 

So rise up each righteous one:
Let Jesus shine through you;
As brightly as the sun,
In God’s glorious love and truth.

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.
