Lest In The End...





Lest in life’s busy arrogance
Lest in the subtle sweep
Of moments as they slip and dance
From deep to ether deep

…lest in the have and hold-let-go
Lest in ‘fight the good fight’
Lest in life’s wish-tide ebb and flow
Of morning, noon to night

…lest in thought’s great forgetfulness
And mentor-ship of clocks
Lest in the glorious commonness
Of what morning unlocks

Lest after all is said and done
And every exhale spent
Lest when this little life has gone
The way of time’s intent

Lest in the end of all this fuss
Of fretting human race
We miss the One who died for us
And saves us by His grace

We ought, love-bound, to seek Him now
With daily heart-soul verve
Lest when we lay this dust-garb down
We get what we deserve

When we love Him with heart and soul
and mind,,then doubt and fear
and all the demons of their kind
in His Peace disappear


***

We cannot find His peace
unless we believe
We cannot believe
unless we repent
We cannot repent
Unless we
Believe


***

What we believe in our hearts
shows in our hands

 "Sirs, what must I do to be saved?" They said, "Believe in the Lord Jesus, and you will be saved, you and your household." 
Acts 16:30-31

***

If you declare with your mouth, "Jesus is Lord," and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved.
Rom. 10:9
