Lessons Learned

When I was a young child,
I went to church and Sunday school,
I learned the 23rd Psalm,
And God's great Golden Rule.

He taught me that obedience,
Was His ultimate desire,
And that it keeps all His children,
From wallowing in life's muddy mire.

So many years have flown by,
Sometimes old problems still exist,
No matter how hard I've tried,
I'm far from being a perfectionist.

But those early lessons that I learned,
Keep me on my weary toes,
 I know who my Savior is,
And my faith in Him still grows.

When we yearn for His Presence,
And we listen for His gentle voice,
He forgives the mistakes we make,
Which reminds us to rejoice.

I have found His promises are all true,
I have everything I need,
He always encourages me,
To plant another fertile seed.

When we asked Jesus to come in,
Life takes on a brighter view,
And life's trials and temptations,
Will never conquer you.

Teach the little children,
Show them how to pray,
Ask Jesus to love and bless them,
As they walk life's narrow highway

It gives me a warm feeling in my heart to write poetry.  I am a "Golden Ager" shut-in and writing keeps my mind busy with something I've done ever since I was a child, and it's my way of sharing our LORD with who ever comes to visit.  Thanks for reading my poetry - I'd love to hear your comments.  May God richly bless you.  Send emails to:   EvaYoung @ SkyWriting.Net
