Thursday Thoughts~



It is not up to us to know
The workings of Love’s Higher Plan
But it is up to us to do
With each moment, the best we can

***

Not by works, lest we should boast
Is the salvation of the soul
But by the blood of Jesus Christ
The broken sinner is made whole

***

To indulge a wish
Even an idle little one
Can be an all-consuming ill
If we give it a throne

***

To deny ourselves
For the sake of pride
Is like wandering the world
With no place to hide

To deny ourselves
For the sake of fear
Is like trading laughter
To covet a tear

To deny ourselves
For the sake of love
Is like opening windows
To Heaven above

***

’Tis easy to justify
With thought
Those things we do
That we ought not

***

Those things we do
Though small they seem
Are not mere moments
In life’s stream
But in the end
Will prove to be
The corner-stone
Of our legacy

***

Consider carefully
What you say and do
For somewhere Someone
Is watching you…

***

Take heed of the guests
You allow in your brain
For we become thoughts
That we entertain

***

Save the tree
Save the water
Save the air
Save the world…
Pity the one
When it’s all said and done
Who neglected
To save his soul

***

Beauty is not something we can buy or wear
It is not body or make-up or hair
The outward is skin; it covers that part
Of true Beauty; a meek and humble heart

***

Different faces, different bodies,
Different races, jobs and roles
Different strengths, different weaknesses
And different dreams and goals
But
We are all alike
We all are flesh and blood
To a common appointment
Eternity and God
