Parenthesis of Praise

With one dark period well behind, there is another door ahead,
But I must keep heart and mind, fixed on Jesus Christ instead;
For He led me through the trial, being Savior and Lord over all,
And because of God, no denial, that today I now stand in awe.

God put a parenthesis in my life, when all my life was so calm,
While in that trial led by Christ, His Grace was my healing balm;
And today I stand restored again, shortly after the darker days,
To boast of Christ, before all men, lifting to God, all the praise.

None will stop me from my boast, in each time God will afford,
While in the hearing of all not most, as I praise Christ, my Lord;
What Godís begun, Heíll finish, as I enter through the next door,
And my praise will not diminish, as His Grace will surely endure.

When the next door, I go through, as trials and burdens change,
In an experience altogether new, Jesus Christ remains the same;
Although the unknown lies ahead, on the path I know nothing of,
By The Good Shepherd Iíll be led, in Godís Grace and His Love.

All praise that now fills my heart, shall remain as I carry through,
As Godís Peace will not depart, and His mercy each day is new;
When in the presence of all men, when I reflect upon these days,
Speaking of that time, back then, itíll be a Parenthesis of Praise.

(Copyright ©10/2010 Bob Gotti)

Heís coming very soon as the signs are very clear,
And when that trumpet sounds, weíll be otta here!
Praise God for our Great Blessed Hope, Who Will
Deliver All Those Who Believe, out of this present
World of Darkness into His Glorious Eternal Light!
(1 Thessalonians 4:13-18 and Titus 2:11-14)

What ABlessed Hope, Bob Gotti
