The Forgotten Path

Posted Monday, August 8, 2011, at 1:21 PM

Rejected by men chosen of GOD
On a forgotten path the meek ones trod

While majestic eagles soar overhead
The impoverished ones go where they're led

Success not measured by numbers or gold
But what you let go of not what you hold

Clinging to prosperity empty cups overflow
Ignoring cries of the helpless they've let go

But the pure in heart will hunger and thirst
As they deny themselves to put others first

Others find peace though the blessed suffer much
They are grateful that others can feel GOD's touch

Often ridiculed and always misunderstood
Trusting that GOD will work it all for good

Rejected by men chosen of GOD
Walking the same path Jesus once trod

The above thought is smart and doesn't require any further addition. It's perfect thought from my side.

Amen, Gordon! DFH is right; there's no need of further addition. God bless you, brother!

I have the heart of a poet, the eye of an artist, and dress like a bum. I am no one important. No title, no position, no authority. Just a normal person. But I know Jesus. And Jesus knows me. And this relationship has changed my life and continues to change my life. I have no desire to be known but great desire for others to know Jesus. I would like to blog about Jesus, christian living, church, hurting, hope. I do not want to lead this blog but follow it wherever it leads.
