"Beloved, I wish above all
that thou mayest prosper and
be in health,
even as thy soul prospereth."
3 John 2
Keep Your Eyes Upon Jesus
People in this world today fuss and argue
the world's resources ~
for life, health, financial prosperity,
set of favorable circumstances.
resources are good in their own way,
they have a fatal defect . . .
are uncertain and transitory!
may have them today,
tomorrow, they may also be gone!
is the way with all earthly things since sin came
upset the beautiful order of nature
made the human race victims of chance and change.
desire for all God's children a full measure of
safe and pure blessing that the earth and sky
unite to bring them.
if in the sovereign will of God things go against us,
do we have left?
life and health are placed in jeopardy,
about our everlasting resources?
the world's foundations crumble,
still have God and in Him we have everything essential
our ransomed beings forever!
have Christ, Who died for us!
have the Scriptures, which never fail us!
have the faithful Holy Spirit, which forever guides
if worse comes to worse here on earth,
have our Father's house and His welcoming arms!
we always look to the resources in life
Keep our eyes upon Jesus!
