Relinquished

From the start to the finish, this life to God I will relinquish,
While each and every day I live, to The Lord, my life I give,
Submitting each day to Christ, I yield to Him my whole life,
To be guided in Godís ways, all my nights and all my days.

God knows all tomorrow holds, before today even unfolds,
So I simply need to live today, living by all God has to say;
To be concerned for tomorrow, will surely welcome sorrow,
This, as all focus is turned away, from living for God today.

Knowing I am in Godís hand, all things I neednít understand,
And so I do not need to see, things ahead, that may not be,
But focus on my Lord above, believing all that He spoke of,
Trusting Him with all my heart, as I rely on Him from the start.

Acknowledging Him in all I do, as Christ will see me through,
For the work God has begun, He will finish through His Son,
As for us thereís no exemption, all saved in His redemption,
Godís salvation provided to us, by The Savior, Christ Jesus.

So my lifeís in Godís hands, even if lifeís like shifting sands,
For God is The Rock of Ages, and He alone turns the pages,
Within this book called my life, authored all, by Jesus Christ,
With Godís written plan for me, which continues on Eternally.

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 A Blessed Hope, Bob Gotti http://www.poeticpulpit.com

How very dedicated you are to allowing our Lord to call the shots in your life.  It takes an awful lot of praying to get there and it's where we all should be.  Thank you for the inspiration.

God bless you and yours, Bob.

Profound and it speaks to the basis of
the books of the LORD, faith.
We must have the Faith of Abraham.
Trust in Him forever and forever
and we will live forever.

Love the Lord your God with all your heart, and with all your soul,and with all your mind. Love your neighbor as yourself.
Maranatha!
