" You Make Your Bed in Life, And Lie In It " "



Make no mistake about it

There is a God

And he requits all

Nothing is by chance

All is preordained

And written by his hand

One Deity, no beginning,no end.

Blessed Trinity of Mystery

You try to get your heads round things

But there are some puzzles

That have no answers

Its when we stray from the Source

That we become undone

Simple as that

No other explanantion

Satan's greatest trick Is to make you believe

That there is no Creator

Then he stops you praying to your Father

And finally makes you lose all faith and trust in your Saviour

Do not be beguiled so easily

You know better than that

Courage is your greatest asset

Remember your Baptism

You are a soldier of Christ

Unashamed and unbowed in adversity

You are confirmed in your allegiance to the Son

Your spirit is bonded to the Holy Ghost

You cannot fail in any of your designs

When you put your implicit trust in the Supreme Being

Cease your endless desire for more

When you already have it all

Blessing upon Blessing

Has showered down on your chosen head

And you fail to acknowledge it

Or even take cognition of it

And the Precious Lamb has redeemed your soul

Delivering you from the Pit

And granted you Eternal Life

I say to you again in reaffirmation

Be strong in the Lord

And when your history is finally told

I guarantee you weary traveller

It will be one illustrious pageant of triumph and joy

This line tags materialism, and I like this line because spirituality is above all else.

"Cease your endless desire for more"

Thanks for the message today, Peter.

You are like a shepherd, Peter, gathering the flock and leading them in the direction of safety and righteousness. Powerful and inspirational poetry.
Take care,

Have to go with Eileen on this one, Peter... DEFINITELY a John the Baptist write that cries out, not so much in this instance to "Prepare ye the way of the Lord" in the desert, as much as to "Prepare ye YOURSELVES" in the expectation that He might come at any moment, and to remember the love of your first calling and anointing. Are those "supernatural" flames that I see there, burning among the people? Phenomenal, thank you and bless you, Kate xx

Reviewed by George Carroll
For those that follow the ways of the Lord "It will be one illustrious pageant of triumph and joy" remember to never cease praying as that is your shield against satan and his devious temptations. Right on Brother Peter in Christ.
