Those Precious Words

For all the times you kept your word

      and helped someone without reward

For all the money you’ve loaned

   and never gotten back

For every encouraging word and

      every story you’ve heard from a wounded soul

For every time you were there

      without fame or payment

CHORUS

God sees everything…every deed, every kindness

      And while your work may go unmentioned

      and your faithfulness taken for granted

      God is watching…taking notice…       smiling…

even beaming with pride

Just waiting for the day you make it home

And you’re standing right before His great big throne

Then you’ll finally hear those precious words

      for you and you alone:   “My good & faithful servant, Well Done”

For everything you helped to fix

 and all the meals made for the sick

For all the children you have loved

 and all the diapers you have changed

For everyone you’ve helped to move,

all the lawns you’ve mowed  and weeds you’ve pulled

For showing tangible love to another by serving your brother

CHORUS Sometimes it’s fun…Sometimes it’s hard

 Sometimes people criticize without the slightest regard

Sometimes gracious souls respond,

 Appreciating what we’ve done

But that’s not why we do it.

 It’s so people will see Jesus through it

          I am blessed to know Dee Lynk who wrote and sang this song at Harvey Cedars “Grace Book” a few months ago.  I was very touched by the words of this song.  Read the words and just think of all the times you’ve done some of these things, and some of these things people may have blessed you with; and yet some to be done.

          God has and still is showing me the value of serving others.  Throughout the years of knowing Jesus He has put godly role models in my life and for that I am grateful. I love God’s Word, and His people and those who need to know Jesus.

A Love That Will Grow

Every time you cross my mind, I break out in exclamations of thanks to God. Each exclamation is a trigger to prayer. I find myself praying for you with a glad heart. I am so pleased that you have continued on in this with us, believing and proclaiming God’s Message, from the day you heard it right up to the present. There has never been the slightest doubt in my mind that the God who started this great work in you would keep at it and bring it to a flourishing finish on the very day Christ Jesus appears. (Philippians 1:3-6 Msg)
