Where Do You Stand

Posted Sunday, September 2, 2012, at 7:53 PM

In this world we must know who is our friend
So many players, liars, and those who pretend

Truth must be protected at any cost
Even if sometimes we offend the lost

So you ask the question, "Where do you stand?"
Sounds less like a question more like a demand

I will answer.....

I spend much time in darkness while others sleep
There is no such thing as an expendable sheep

I also visit often with others at the Samaritan's well
Trick questions and christian horror stories they tell

Today I was with Lazarus and we shared a meal
Once again love works as a heart and body heal

The Word rightly divided will always multiply
Meeting the needs of the hurting with each tear I cry

I am the least of the brethren but GOD knows my name
He never gave up on me and for others I do the same

Others see bad fruit but I think it needs more time
Sometimes it takes awhile before the words start to rhyme

Discarded by man chosen of GOD
Walking the same path Jesus once trod

Such a simple question, "Where do you stand?"
Instead of answering I write in the sand

We Have to stand where principle stands. We have to stand where truth leads. Sometimes, I must put my likes and dislikes, party affiliations, opinions, notions, and even church name aside and just stand for what is right.

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.
