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!

Sharing Life Among the Broken

Among strangers You meet me
just where I’m at
to remind me You’re with me,
in such a simple chat.
A simple chat
that is so profound,
You remind the lost
they have been found.
You send a message
in a spoken word.
Your Spirit ensures
that it is heard.
You serve the vessel,
and have the vessel serve.
You calm the restless,
and utilize the verve.
Chosen serving the lowly.
Lowly serving Your chosen.
Sharing the life
among the broken.
