Receive His blessing families;
His blessing all communities.
To fix this broken place,
All we need is grace.

Receive His blessing all nations;
His blessings for peaceful relations.
To follow the path
And be spared the wrath.

History is a great teacher;
Just ask any preacher.
We must learn from history
Or it could become blistery.

To make the needed adjustments,
Take in His Word as sustenance.
God has provided the way;
All we do is obey.

Apply Godly moralities
And not worldly fallacies.
Search inside to clear out
So there is no doubt.

Follow the proper way
Each and every day.
To live, give, and love
Using the power from above.

    Reblogged this on This Day With God and commented:

    A lack of integrity within a family, community, or nation can lead to disastrous consequences. Doing a study of Genesis 27 a while back, it was noted that Rebekah and Jacob gave us examples of a lack of integrity. Rebekah convinced her favorite son to trick his father and receive his blessing instead of Esau. This lack of integrity existed during that time in history and it exist in current times. This poem was written to inspire a new direction in order to receive God’s blessings.
