Simple, but straight to the point, Roy. I like the way you say you are not here at your own whim, and aren't we comforted to know it's by His grace and by His power we are here and lead?

Great devotional,
Rhonda

"The only way I'm special is
the power of Jesus' blood.
God's favour rests upon my head
because my Lord is good.
So thankful for the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ.

Roy,
I can identify with this touching poem, because I know sometimes I am a big thorn in Jesus' crown.
These are beautiful, words. Do you share your work with your congregation? I ask because it's very inspiring.
Blessings, Roy,
Good luck,
Your friend in Christ,
Cindy

Really nice poem. Sometimes we forget what our place is in the great scheme of things but we are hear to serve our master and sometime we need reminding.

Great message, Roy :) Worthy of a ten.

A great reminder of how much our Lord has suffered in our place. His love is unconditional, freeing us from sin. This gift cannot be compared.

Thanks for sharing, my friend.
Always your fan,
Shana :)

This was truly fantastic, Roy. You presented praise where praise was due, in Jesus Christ. You never assumed that you would claim the glory. You are indeed a humble man which praised God and Christ. Blessings.

Thank you for the beautifully written reminder that we are saved through the grave of God. Not through our works but through our belief the Savior. I enjoyed reading.

You and I are the bride of Christ, and now a diadem in the Lord's crown. Once we were thorns but not anymore. Beautifully written by your sanctified self.

Sending you my best today as always,
Sal XOs

I liked this poem about the importance of remembering an eternal perspective, so to speak. Ah, the secret of self-composure is to remember that one is not here by chance and that there is more to life than living on a whim (line 12).
Favorite lines: The world can never anger me,
I walk in Jesus' grace.
The only suggestion I have is to spell 'judgment' without the e after the g. But some of the dictionaries with more modern spellings probably have it either way. I would also add a comma after the word 'cause' in line 3.

    Judgement and judgment are both acceptable, but because judgement tends to be English English, our spelling is more their way. But thank you for your fine review, blessings Roy

Thank you, Jesus, for the grace of God. Else we would all be "toast." There would be no way any of us could live up to the Christ like image we strive for. Couldn't agree more with this one.
