The Lesson

Post  WARRIOR on Mon 13 Dec 2010, 5:21 pm

How I learned a valuable lesson today
I got upset over the loss
Of a modern conveince
I allowed it to robe me of my peace
It showed me my spirit
Has not yielded to suffering
To be so affected by this loss
When this is but temporal.
How shall I endure physical loss?
We truly do not know
What suffering is like those of old
Modern reality is but an illusion
A mockery of happiness and peace
Yet for most it leaves us
Unsettled and agitated
My lesson was this ~
I have no control over anything
And all that “I own”
Is not mine anyways
It can be taken from me
At any given time
Myself as a person must stand
In God’s peace and assurance
That he alone is my existence
And my only salvation
In this changing world.
How did I react?
Was I resigned that all things
Happen as God allows them?
And did I praise Him in “all things”?
The light has been shown today
My soul needs more work
It is these “things” happening
To prune me, show me
What is rotten inside
What more needs to die
That He may live and rule in me
Our success is not physical
It is only spiritual in Him.

It is a war from the cradle to the tomb
But Jesus is Lord who enable us overcome
Galatians 5:16 (King James Version)

16This I say then, Walk in the Spirit, and ye shall not fulfil the lust of the flesh.


Not by might nor by power but by His Spirit. Zech4:6
