My Consolation

Congratulations! You have lost!
Now you must pay the cost!
But here’s a consolation as you go,
to comfort your humiliation on the show.
This how the world sees consolation,
but I see mine in God’s salvation.
Jesus Christ was sent to me.
Thanks to Him, I’ve been set free.
I was lost in sin and shame.
Jesus stopped that blame game!
He gave me value and Holy worth
when He came in lowly birth.
His sacrifice on the cross
restored me from the loss.
His gift of love and sacrifice
paid my penalty and paid my price.
He sent the Comforter to guide.
He teaches me while at my side.
Soon to Jesus I will be led.
My Consolation… life after death!

Praying For Friends

Praying for friends…
Such a much needed task!
Yet what a joy
And a privilege to ask
God to protect and provide
For dear friends,
Knowing God’s blessings
Never come to an end!
Praise to a Savior,
A King in charge.
Nothing is too little,
Nothing too large.
God is beautiful
To provide such souls,
Then comforts with prayers,
Knowing He is in control.
