Jes' Askin'





Ah, Master of the morning skies
Today I ask of You
To help me humbly recognize
What you would have me do

Ah Painter of my purposed path
Temper my attitude
Not what I want but what You ask
Thus teach me gratitude

Ah anchor in life’s high and low
Hold me to You, I pray
So as I live and laugh and love
I will not drift away

Ah, Master of the morning skies,
Ah Painter of my path
Ah anchor in life's lows and highs
Keep me today, I ask

A Call to Persevere...Jude 17-24

But, dear friends, remember what the apostles of our Lord Jesus Christ foretold.  They said to you, “In the last times there will be scoffers who will follow their own ungodly desires.” These are the people who divide you, who follow mere natural instincts and do not have the Spirit.
 But you, dear friends, by building yourselves up in your most holy faith and praying in the Holy Spirit, keep yourselves in God’s love as you wait for the mercy of our Lord Jesus Christ to bring you to eternal life.
 Be merciful to those who doubt;  save others by snatching them from the fire; to others show mercy, mixed with fear—hating even the clothing stained by corrupted flesh.

To him who is able to keep you from stumbling and to present you before his glorious presence without fault and with great joy—To the only God , our Savior through Jesus Christ our Lord, be glory, majesty, dominion and authority,before all time and now and forever,

Amen 

To each who of you who pass this way
I pray for you a blessed day.
