MAY 15 – LIFE

05/15          1 Thessalonians 4:11

This should be your ambition: to live a quiet life, minding your own business and working with your hands, just as we commanded you before.

LIFE

My life is focused on Jesus. When we focus our life on Him the things we do and say change. No longer in constant chaos we have purpose and mercy each day. Jesus is seeking to connect with us and lead us in the way of love.

 

THE GODLY MAN – PSALM 1

 

Don’t walk on the wild side, evil commands each day

Nor stand with sinners, irreverent-hard hearted-don’t play

 

Sitting down with sly men, committed to selfish sin

Only causes failure, for a man trying to win

 

Focus your mind on God, He is worthy of every thought

His law brings wisdom, mercy and grace; His Word changes your heart

 

Think on these things; let them marinate your soul

The Lord is with you; He will not let you go

 

As evil ebbs and flows you will stand; storms will not get the upper hand

Your life will be fruitful; everything you turn yourself to will grow

 

Not so the wicked, there is a day of death

Everything they’ve worked for will blow away like chaff

 

Judgment will destroy the wicked, God will not let them off

Their way will perish, disappear, no longer will they hold sway

 

The wicked are headed to a mean and evil existence, perdition, hell, apart from God

The Godly man has Jesus as His Lord, Christ is God’s everything and He is for you
