There are times we fail to share our faith. As we admit our failure, God will help us to be brave to live our lives to honor Him.

What does it mean to share God's love,

And truth I have within?

Will I seek knowledge from  above

To live my faith in Him?


I wonder what will be the cost

To fail, and I don't share.

Will someone not learn that he's lost,

If for him I don't care?


What others see in me each day

May help them wonder why,

If I have faith, why don't I say,

Or is my life a lie?


I have a real testimony.

The Lord does surely save!

But it's been known that others see

At times I've not been brave.


I ask the Lord to help me now

To speak of His dear Son.

For what He did, I humbly bow,

And know His love I've won.


May I reach out and learn to give

The story that saves us.

May others see the way I live

Does show the truth I trust


Jean Oathout 5/8/13

I also pray that people see Jesus in me. He lives in my heart, guiding my steps every day. I don't understand how people live without him. How do they wake up in the morning without Jesus. Beautiful poetry, Jean.

Love and blessings,

The way we live tells more about us than anything we say or write.
