Please forgive the simplicity of rhyme,
for I wish to be clear and take my time.

Its never been pc to be Christian in any century,
out of step with the World, in what ones does or sees.

Having ideals may make me seem pompous,
even though I have no desire to impress.

Im attempting to follow a Heavenly Plan,
by being a godly steward and serving fellow Man.

What I write from the heart, for me is real;
although as a guy, Im not supposed to feel.

For some, the Principles of God make no sense
However, my Faith is no elaborate pretense.


From the book: Reaching Towards His Unbounded Glory
The ISBN is: 1-4196-5051-3

What words of wisdom flow from your pen.
Oh, what burdens we do bare.
When we fail to take them
to the Lord in prayer.
Logic does fail us if God is not the center of it.
Yes, we are resented for being Christians.
Some people blame us for their own stubborn willfulness.
For something they could easily attain themselves: God's help.
