CONSIDER THIS

THE LIGHT

By Pat Severin

I’m sure when you’ve found clarity, when it has finally come,

You’ve said the light, indeed, has dawned and you can proceed from…

The point which had confused you, the way is clear at last

And you can leave it all behind, that point is in the past.

 

But have you ever looked at LIGHT, the light that made things clear

And even made connection to God’s Word, because it’s here?

It says He’s called us out of dark, His Light will light our path.

So when your life is fraught with doubt, He’s there on your behalf.

 

There may be times when things seem dark but God has pledged to you,

Whatever may be on your mind, He’ll always see you through.

Don’t be content to figure out your problems when they come,

Go to Him first, He’s in control, for Light, He is the One.

 

That’s what He meant when He explained that He is your pure Light.

Why stumble in the darkness then, His clarity is bright?

Our lives are full of days when we are faced with doubts and fear.

So take Him at His Word and know, the Light will make it clear.

PUTTING THE FIGHTING OF A SERIOUS ILLNESS IN PERSPECTIVE

THE BATTLE

By Patty Lynn


I guess it’s now a waiting game, there’s much that you have done,

I pray you’re giving it to God, that must be number one.

But that is only part of it, your psyche has to work...

Believing this will turn out right, from that you cannot shirk.

 

Oh, you could justify your doubts and add some good excuses,

But all in all you’d soon find out, what really is the use of…

That worrying and fretting, the “what if-ing things to death.

It truly serves no purpose and it’s simply wasted breath.

 

So best to set those thoughts aside, God knows the final outcome.

Just pray that you will conquer this and walk in freedom’s sun.

And so the fight to beat this thing continues, yes, it does.

Survival is the ultimate, the goal for you because...

 

We want to have you in our lives and you in ours, it’s true,

We think the world’s a better place, and it’s because of you.

There’s no one you has given more and yet has more to give...

For fighting this and what it takes, yes, fighting hard to live.

 

Your battle is continuing and I’m all-in with you,

Invested in what lies ahead and daily praying, too,

That God will strengthen you to fight to keep on keeping on.

Whate’er you face, God give His grace, until this battle’s won.
