Abundant Life! 4-19-14


Oh, how the evil people came.
They tore me from my roots.
Now I was dead and destitute
and offered no good fruit.

I could not cope and gave up hope
that I could ever be
a twig, so insignificant,
upon God's mighty tree.

My pain, excruciating, vast -
my burdens, so intense.
Their legal laws weren't moral and
their logic made no sense.

They burned me out and bested me.
They said, "Now go away."
Exhausted, they, my energy
I needed for the day.

My prayers seemed ever hollow
and repetitious too.
I asked God for some wisdom,
then asked Him, "Where are You?"

I asked God for some answers.
I asked, "Where are You now?
Oh, why did You not answer me?
Why this, did You allow?"

Confused, I was, and angered.
I screamed, "This is not fair!"
Depressed, I was, and out of hope,
Did God no longer care?

My glass was very empty,
while theirs was very full.
Now how can God revive the dead?
It seems impossible.

But God gives life abundantly
forgiving everyone -
who does confess through faithfulness,
as grace shines through His Son.

My faith was null and buried.
They killed it with a knife.
Man may destroy, but God creates,
then gives abundant LIFE!

John 10:10 (NASB)

The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy;
I came that they may have life, and have it abundantly.

1 Peter 1:7 (KJV) 


That the trial of your faith,
being much more precious than of gold that perisheth, 
though it be tried with fire,
might be found unto praise and honour and glory at the appearing of Jesus Christ:
