He IS Lord. Period

(this photo was taken after two large wedges disappeared;) See recipe below

 I was pulling scones from the oven, listening to the message posted below, when four words stopped me in my tracks; He is Lord. Period.

Whether we acknowledge or deny
Ruler of earth and sea and sky
He IS Lord

Whether we believe and confess
Or reject His Righteousness
He IS Lord

Whether we live by His grace
Or defy Him to His face
He IS Lord

Whether we with faith agree
Or merely trust in what we see
He IS Lord

Whether we understand or don’t
Whether we submit or won’t
He IS Lord

He is Lord immutable
His Lordship irrefutable
He IS Lord

 But you, why do you judge your brother? Or you again, why do you regard your brother with contempt? For we will all stand before the judgment seat of God. For it is written, "AS I LIVE, SAYS THE LORD, EVERY KNEE SHALL BOW TO ME, AND EVERY TONGUE SHALL GIVE PRAISE TO GOD." So then each one of us will give an account of himself to God.
  Romans 14:10-12

  1. Beautiful poem! Powerful truth in those words!

    Thanks, also, for the scone recipe. They look yummy.

    have a great day,

  2. Yes! Period. Your poem is encouraging to me. I have to admit though I had trouble keeping my eyes off those scones in order to read your poem. They look soo delish!

  3. It is a sort of funny mix...sermon and scones but they really do go well together;) :-0
