Loving Him Takes Diligence

It takes diligence to love The Lord

for our hearts to be in one accord.

Our flesh wants to give in resistance to sin.

We make exceptions without reflection

on certain words we think we’ve learnt.

Yes to really love Scripture and be a Picture

of Jesus who came to Free us

is to have some resistance in those instants –

when things appeal are we for real?

With fervent desire or do we want to retire

just for a moment…..a day…..

to have our way instead of His Way?

It’s just too hard, it tastes like lard

that moment, that day, along life’s way?

To truly love His Words

is to practice those we think we’ve learned.

Without exceptions, those are regressions

from His Words of Life, be a little contrite.

For to walk in His Favour, there is no blessing greater

Except the Rapture, don’t let sin zap ya.

Do you want to be ready, keep your steps steady.

Live for His approval, not your own

when you want to take a roam.

Continue to feed on His Words, the sweetest heard.

Continue to Act on them and be Truly His Friend.

Yes our flesh complains and sighs

this should be of no surprise.

It takes diligence to love The Lord

and keep your heart in one accord.
